Hartley puts Saints in Super Bowl

It wasn’t always pretty, but it was epic. 

In a draining game that will be talked about as long as we’re all alive, the New Orleans Saints defeated the Minnesota Vikings 31-28 in overtime Sunday to advance to their first Super Bowl in franchise history.

Garett Hartley hit a 40-yard game winner after a short and halting drive by the Saints to open overtime.  The 10-play, 39-yard drive included two Vikings penalties and three plays upheld after review.

The overtime almost felt an epilogue after the painful end to regulation for Vikings fans.

In position for a game-winning field goal, the Vikings botched their trip to Miami with a comedy of errors.

First, Brad Childress was far too conservative in setting up for a long field goal when his offense was pushing the Saints around.  Then the Vikings somehow sent 12 men into the huddle after a timeout on the biggest play of the year.

And then, on third-and-15 from the Saints 38-yard line, Favre happened.

After a season of being so careful with the ball, Favre made the throw you absolutely can’t make with everything on the line.  Making it more painful: he had a gain on the ground available if he wanted it.

The final throw for Favre was fitting on a day that included five Vikings fumbles and five turnovers.  Minnesota gained 475 total yards to only 257 for the Saints.

In the end, this wasn’t a game about statistics.  It was two teams frenetically going back and forth, often feeling the pressure, but always going full tilt.

It was about two tortured fanbases expecting the worse, the Vikings fans being right, and Saints fans going somewhere they’ve never been before.

No matter what happens in Miami, January 24, 2010 will be a day that is always remembered in New Orleans.  Saints fans will be able to say forty years from now where they were when Hartley hit his kick.

We suspect that football fans all over the country, no matter who they root for, will be able to do the same.

    Brett Favre – His legacy will now forever be the STUPID interceptions that he threw to keep his last 3 teams out of the Superbowl. Sorry Brett, Karma wanted you more than History did.

    london fletcher to the probowl go redskins

  3. Gr33nB@yF@n says: Jan 24, 2010 11:00 PM

    Anyone know how many seasons Favre ended with an INT? Is it just this one, 2007, and that one in Philly (2004?) or were there more?

  4. armchair_probowler says: Jan 24, 2010 11:01 PM

    boo hoo vikings fans
    man not winning the superbowl doesnt hurt as much when you have a STUD QB for the next decade…. GO PACK
    (have fun with T-jack…. or 41 year old broken down QB)

    The stats don’t give as accurate a picture of this game as the final score does. Great Game!

    Congrats Saints Fans!!!

  9. hitman23 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:03 PM

    stop whining about officiating and hold on to the ball crybaby vikes fans. then u dont have to worry about the refs. secondly u know what u get when u take on farve so……… there u go!

    CHOKE! CHOKE! CHOKE! CHOKE! CHOKE! CHOKE! CHOKE! CHOKE!CHOKE!CHOKE!
    Bringing the circus to town doesn’t put you in the superbowl.
    Good luck with that “I’m retired….No I’m not…Wait, yes I am…on second thought I feel like I can still play..I am a diva” BULLSHIT!

  12. grendel says: Jan 24, 2010 11:03 PM

    You’re not going to talk about overtime rules? Didn’t anyone else feel like they knew the outcome when the coin was flipped for overtime? That’s just ridiculous.

  13. sodaknick says: Jan 24, 2010 11:04 PM

    You live by the Favre, you die by the Favre. Either way, I’ll take it. Without him we would’ve never had the chance and without AP’s fumbles, his bonehead throw wouldn’t have been necessary.
    In the words of the Vikings’ fan anthem, “Maybe next year…”.

  14. effs420 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:04 PM

    horrible choke job by my favorite team…
    season was a blast to watch…something that was lacking of late
    but the game tonight was both good and difficult to watch once the vikes started choking like a fat guy that doesn’t chew his food
    will be rooting for the saints in the big game

  15. hayward giablommi says: Jan 24, 2010 11:04 PM

    God bless the Saints.
    Favre destroys another season.
    You wanted him, Minnesota, you got him.
    Let’s hear what Favre’s brainwashed, kool-aid drinkings minions have to say now.
    Ha!!!

  16. PurpleRaid12 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:04 PM

    I honestly don’t think I can or ask for a more nail-biting, exciting, lead-changing, high octane hell of a game. Congrats to the Saints, this does great things for that city and the state and young team… I will most certainly root for you in the Super Bowl… Favre, Hell of a season, you’re truly the “Ironman” after taking hit after hit, and kept fighting, we unfortunately didn’t play well enough to get that victory. Thank you for help put Minnesota back into legitimate Super Bowl contention! No excuses here, great game… if this season has shown me one thing, it’s that I will always bleed purple!

  17. dowens11 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:04 PM

    We might all be treated to a perfectly quarterbacked Super Bowl! I can not picture Brees or Peyton making any glaring mistakes in this upcoming game. This will be a true exhibit of mastery at this position. As great as Farve is, he’s a gambler, Brees and Peyton are much more calculated in their approach.

  18. EarthQuake says: Jan 24, 2010 11:04 PM

    Some things never change, another year in the books for the vikes without winning a superbowl.

  22. danielcp0303 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:05 PM

    Shouldn’t the headline be “Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson put Saints in Super Bowl”. Congrats to the Saints, I love to watch them play. It’s going to be a great Super Bowl.

  23. darkchild says: Jan 24, 2010 11:05 PM

    The Vikings got Favred big time. I found it quite hilarious.
    This guy has been throwing season ending picks his entire career. He takes you for a wild ride and BOOM he throws a dumb pass.
    Vikings fans aren’t so boastful now, have fun finding a new Qb since Favre is surely going to have a teary eyed presser in two weeks announcing his retirement.
    Now we go from constant Favre ballwashing to constant Archie’s boy versus Archie’s old team ball washing. ESPN will be unbearable these next two weeks.

  24. Juveputazo says: Jan 24, 2010 11:05 PM

    Well Dyke fans at least ur probowl votes didn’t go to waste

  25. cowboys282 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:05 PM

    lol hey Vikings fans now that you are not winning the Superbow and you don’t have a quarterback anymore you should still cheer up. You have the Cowboys coming to town next year with revenge on their mind. After the Cowboys game next year I wonder if you will think it was ok to run up the score lol. You have nothing to show for it except a Cowboys team coming to your city next year for payback. I wonder who your quarterback will be lol See you next year hahahahahaha.

  26. whodaywhodat says: Jan 24, 2010 11:05 PM

    Who Dat? Who Dat think they gonna beat dem saints?? Who Dat? Who Dat? Where is that Pervy Harvin guy? I got a post for you:
    Pervy Harvin says: January 23, 2010 7:09 PM
    Saints fans- Did you feel the Northern chill and shadow of impending doom as the Viking plane landed in the Big Easy? Sure you did. In living up to their name,the Vikings will pillage and plunder the Saints season.They will leave the Superdome in a silent stupor after 60 minutes of Minnesota domination.Be braced, it will shock you. Hope you have no hard feelings, Favre wants redemption.You are just in his way.
    LMFAO!!! Go back to one of your 10,000 lakes and tie a rope to your ankle!!

  27. Pervy_Harvin says: Jan 24, 2010 11:05 PM

    What’s the matter, Florio somewhere crying?
    I can’t believe that I got duped again into thinking that this rotten franchise is ever going to win anything.
    Just move ‘em already.

  28. FumbleNuts says: Jan 24, 2010 11:05 PM

    Favre ALWAYS screws it up in the end.
    Who can understand this?

  29. Morning Wood says: Jan 24, 2010 11:05 PM

    Typical Favre season. Take you to the point of orgasm and then go limp.

  30. Skin_Flute says: Jan 24, 2010 11:06 PM

    The headline must be a typo. It should read “Favre puts Saints in Super Bowl”

  31. Sober says: Jan 24, 2010 11:06 PM

    That’s the Favre I remember

  32. Real Vikings fans wouldn't cheer for Favre says: Jan 24, 2010 11:06 PM

    This is great! I could tell Favre was way too happy after winning a divisional round game and he was acting as if that was the Super Bowl. He sent a terrible message to the team.
    Then he throws the game losing interception. He costed the Vikes the Super Bowl..it’s so great. That’s his purple legacy!!!
    LOOKING LIKE A FOOL RIGHT NOW FAVRE!!!!!!!!!! GO AWAY AND RETIRE FOREVER!!!

  33. nps6724 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:06 PM

    What happened? Favre happened.

  34. antozzy says: Jan 24, 2010 11:07 PM

    It is only fitting that Favre end another season with a INT with a trip to the super bowl on the tip of their fingers. This is exactly why I do not think Favre is worthy of being named a top 10 QB in NFL history. Name an elite QB that throws away playoff game after playoff game. He should have won 3 a tleast 3 super bowls, yet has one to show. Winning it all is not small task but people consider him the greatest QB ever, I consider him one of the greatest choke artists’ ever. Now sail off into the sunset and see you after training camp.

  35. j-wil says: Jan 24, 2010 11:07 PM

    Now Favre is finally gonna buy a new tv!

    YOU. CHOKED.

  38. Yellow Ledbetter says: Jan 24, 2010 11:07 PM

    Goodbye you insufferable Vikes bandwagon Jackasses………….Choke Vikes

  39. Krashie21 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:07 PM

    Gee, I wonder if Brett’s singing “Pants on the Ground” right about now??????
    For every Vi-Queen fan…..you deserve this and I’m sure this stings as much as ’98, ’77, ’74, ’73 and ’70.
    You sold your souls for a me-first, egomaniac who has always choked when it mattered most (and don’t give me any crap about that SB against the Pats……Desmond Howard and Reggie won that game).
    The Vi-Queens are a gutless, classless and ultimately, stupid organization (Denny Green takes a knee in regulation in ’98 and Mr. Noodle thinks he’s in the CFL —- uh, Chilly the NFL plays with 11 players on the field).
    The perfect marriage……Brett Favre and the Vi-Queens.
    What a classic way to end a season and a career.
    This was one of the greatest days in NFL history!!!!!
    GO COWBOYS!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Pervy_Harvin says: Jan 24, 2010 11:07 PM

    could this be the 2nd time Favre’s last pass is an INT? Guess we’ll have to wait til opening sunday to find out

  43. Emoney says: Jan 24, 2010 11:08 PM

    Hey Viking fans, remember how all of us “idiot” Packer fans kept saying Lord Favre will choke eventually for you? And you morons kept defending him. Well well well…looks like we’re the last one’s laughing. You’re all the lovable losers of the NFL. And speaking for Packer fans, we would all just like to say, HAHAHAHA! Pervy, jeff, majik…this one’s for you douchbags. Now you guys can make up all of your excuses as to wy the NFL refs screwed the Vikings.

  44. SwedishMurderMachine says: Jan 24, 2010 11:08 PM

    And a torrent of pent up s*it talking by fans of teams that did nothing this year ensues. Suck it Viking haters.

  45. GBPackers says: Jan 24, 2010 11:08 PM

    Though it is very tough to not get after you Pervy, congrads on a great year! Adds another chapter to the Packer-Queen rivalry! Looks like the NFC North will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come!

    IF THE SAINTS GET THE BALL 5X OFF TURNOVERS AND CAN ONLY SCORE 31 POINTS AGAINST AN IFFY DEFENSE, IMAGINE WHAT PEYTON IS GOING TO DO TO THEM IN 2 WEEKS AGAINST A CRAPPY NEW ORLEANS D….

  50. BonerJams'03 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:08 PM

    Favre is coming back.
    His ego is WAYYYYYYYYYYYY to big to end his career on an INT (as already proven).
    He’ll be taking that $13mil. Or he’ll go to Arizona. Book it.

  51. iplayedthegame says: Jan 24, 2010 11:09 PM

    Brett’s last 5 trips to the playoffs:
    2010 – Throws pick w/ 15 sec. left vs Saints
    2008 – Throws bad pick in OT vs. Giants at home to lose shot at SB
    2005 – 4 picks in loss at home to Queens
    2004 – Chuck-n-duck floater INT to lose to Eagles
    2003 – 20/42 w/ 2 INTs vs Falcons for 1st playoff loss in GB history
    2002 – 6 INTs to single-handedly lose to Rams
    Brett’s the greatest regular season QB in history – no doubt. His choking in big game after big cannot be ignored.

  52. last starfighter says: Jan 24, 2010 11:09 PM

    congrats Saints fans! Enjoy it

  53. halen11 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:10 PM

    Great game, Minny. You’ll be back.

  54. orangecheddarcheesehead says: Jan 24, 2010 11:10 PM

    Oh my ankle. My ankle made me throw that last pick. Pussy.

  55. jamesz23 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:10 PM

    Why when Packers fans complained about calls in the Cards games Vikings fans said crybabies and STFU???? But they can do it over 1 call that was nowhere near as bad as the Rodgers blatant facemask that ended the game??? Favre threw the ball across his body into the middle of the field like a rookie – talk about that.

  56. shamemaker says: Jan 24, 2010 11:11 PM

    karma is a bitch

  57. orangecheddarcheesehead says: Jan 24, 2010 11:11 PM

    How can he not end his career on an INT. It’s how every season ends for him.

  58. rudedog36 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:12 PM

    Hey pervy -10 year old.
    This is called karma. Same old queens. No not really, you didnt even make it to the superbowl to lose.
    Now you have time to work on your boxing career, and start your new web sight.
    See you next year loser.

  59. j-wil says: Jan 24, 2010 11:12 PM

    Brett’s gonna force his way onto the Lions next season.

  61. orangecheddarcheesehead says: Jan 24, 2010 11:13 PM

    And the retirement talk has already begun in his press conference. Proving once again, it’s all about him. It would be nice if one of the reporters would ask him what the hell was he thinking on that last pass. But, noooooo!

  62. IWanttoPunchFloriointheFace says: Jan 24, 2010 11:13 PM

    Pete Moronelli and all NFL officials should be disgusted with the total ineptness of their crews…if I performed that bad at my job your burger would be undercooked and Peyton’s little brother Ecoli would be knocking at your esophogus.

  63. scrapdawg12 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:13 PM

    Brett Favre is a joke. AP is a joke. You cannot fumble 3 or 4 times AP and as for Favre, your 40 and still throwing cross body. C’mon man. As for the game, it was a disaster. Vikings are clearly the better team and I hate both teams. Get rid of the 5 fumbles and INT’s and Vikings win by a TD or 2 TD’s. Now this crap about retire or not to retire. Just make up your mind man and stick with it. The play before the FG to win it, the ball clearly hit the ground. Should of been a 50 yard FG instead of a 40. What a disgrace. Go Peyton. Peyton is god.

  64. Yellow Ledbetter says: Jan 24, 2010 11:14 PM

    It’s truly a shame the Vikings can’t play a team as bad as Dallas every week…..A team as bad as Dallas Laid down like the dogs they are….Today they got a fight, and got beat…..

  65. MkePackFan says: Jan 24, 2010 11:14 PM

    I hope Favre retires…that way, Jet fans won’t be the only ones wondering why they spent over $150 (for an authentic) for a purple #4 Viking jersey.

  66. ICEWALKER says: Jan 24, 2010 11:14 PM

    Favre, you did it again……OK you threw a horrible INT but how many times did you do that in your long career and it wasn’t picked off? Many, and TRUE football fans know it.
    What you did was show that you have the heart of a lot of teams, combined.
    So if this is it (and we won’t know for sure until opening weekend kick off) it was the end of a great career.

  67. LaughingClown says: Jan 24, 2010 11:14 PM

    Favre on the ground, Favre on the ground. Vikings gonna lose with Favre on the ground! Turf in his mouth, helmet on the ground. Lookin like a clown with Favre on the ground!

  68. scotty_poacher says: Jan 24, 2010 11:16 PM

    Well my dream of Favre being carried off on a stretcher to end his career didnt pan out, but that INT will do just fine !!!!

    I knew the haters would be out in full force. They can’t step away from kicking a team when they are down.
    Being a true Vikings fan, I’m extremely thankful Favre signed with the Vikings this year. There is no way we could have gone this far with TJack.
    In many ways, I hope he comes back for one more year, but I can certainly understand if he doesn’t. 2/3 of the QB’s in the NFL could not have taken the pounding he got tonight and continued to play.
    Congrats to the Saints! Kinda fitting that the number 1 teams from each conference play each other to win the Super Bowl.
    Gotta cheer for the Saints now!
    WHO DAT!!!!

  71. lesdavies123 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:17 PM

    Hey Vikings idiots blaming it all on Brett, may I remind you Adrian Peterson fumbled it 3 times. Maybe we shouldn’t have drafted him, Harvin fumbled maybe we shouldn’t have drafted him either. No you stupid idiots, when you have a good playing like AP, Harvin and Favre you take the bad with the good and you stick with them. And, ahem, Real Viking Fans Don’t Cheer For Favre, way to go dumbass, let me tell you one thing about sports, real football fans cheer for their team, they don’t have to be happy about them but they root for them and they cheer them on. I’m glad Brett came to Minnesota, but I guess you would have liked a 6-10 season, well you’re in for a treat we’re gonna get one next year.

  72. Colt's McCoy says: Jan 24, 2010 11:17 PM

    regardless of the outcome I gained so much respect for Favre tonight. Who Dat! Also, Vike fans I realize this was a tough pill to swallow but please don’t resort to the Katrina jokes that so many usually do.

  73. Peoples Champ says: Jan 24, 2010 11:17 PM

    6 fumbles (3 lost) was the main difference in the game. The Saints were very fortunate to win it. But really and truely, The Vikings lost it…my bad, Favre lost it. While it’s not the Superbowl matchup I wanted, it’s still gonna be a good one…

  74. lezmaka says: Jan 24, 2010 11:18 PM

    “In position for a game-winning field goal, the Vikings botched their trip to Miami with a comedy of errors.
    First, Brad Childress was far too conservative in setting up for a long field goal when his offense was pushing the Saints around. Then the Vikings somehow sent 12 men into the huddle after a timeout on the biggest play of the year.
    And then, on third-and-15 from the Saints 38-yard line, Favre happened.”
    And yet, Mike Florio will still bitch about overtime rules not giving both offenses a chance to win. Even though both offenses had chances to win during the first 60 minutes of the game, and literally fumbled and threw them away.

  75. johnko says: Jan 24, 2010 11:18 PM

    No crying here. Congrats Saints/Saint fans. Thanks Vikes/Brett for a very fun season.

  76. orangecheddarcheesehead says: Jan 24, 2010 11:18 PM

    Favre is on top….on top of the list of most playoff picks. But then again, Tom Jackson admires him for not being “afraid” to throw an INT.

  77. sniperhare says: Jan 24, 2010 11:19 PM

    ————————————————–
    Don’t worry douche,I am right here! Look at the game stats,we killed them. This game is the ultimate example of what turnovers can do. we beat them up. we made mistakes. They win,mistakes cost you. We are the better team easily,a blind man could see that. turnovers KILL!

  79. Sparrowhawk says: Jan 24, 2010 11:19 PM

    Brett already retired and unretired since the loss.

  80. kpweaver27 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:20 PM

    5 turnovers in regulation and the Saints only mustered 28 points. An effort like that in Miami and the Saints won’t be in the game by halftime. Maybe it’ll repeat, maybe not. Colts 38, Saints 27.

  81. alphamail says: Jan 24, 2010 11:21 PM

    What really matters here is…
    ZERO TITLES FOR VIKINGS – AND COUNTING.
    Favre “stuck it” to his old team and had a great season. So what? In the end he came away with NOTHING.
    The Packers, meanwhile, moved on, and are set at QB for at least 10 years, barring injury.
    Good luck with TJ and Sage, Vikings. You read the buyer beware, and you still took the choker. Well, one choking party deserves another.

  82. Tdk24 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:21 PM

  83. last starfighter says: Jan 24, 2010 11:21 PM

    Some will say it’s not fair to blame the loss on favre. They will say they wouldn’t have been there without him and that he had a great year. Okay fine, if that makes you feel better. Whatever the vikings do, if favre does decide to come back they better not try to draft a qb. Favre’s psyche wouldn’t be able to take it and he would treat him like crap

    If Im Childress Im on the phone with Reid and asking what it takes to get Mcnabb. I know no one likes him, but there isn’t anyone else out there, albeit Favre has to retire, and theyre still a championship team. A 1 and 3 = 5

  86. garyl says: Jan 24, 2010 11:23 PM

    NO is no where near as good as Indy and I don’t want Indy to win.

    anybody notice that favre tried to call a time out before the 12 men penalty?…that should have been a 15 yarder for 2 timeouts in a row…

  88. madmike says: Jan 24, 2010 11:24 PM

    So many clueless Packers and Cowgirls fans on here. How far did your teams go this year? Exactly. Favre played a great game, in light of the pounding he took. The officiating in OT was bad, but that’s not what cost us the game. We never should have been in OT. The fumbles were killer, in the Red zone and deep in our end. But it’s a young team with several young superstars. If Brett comes back (I pray he does) we’ll be in the mix again. If he doesn’t, we need to get a QB who can get the job done. I’m sure McNabb would love another crack at a Superbowl…

  89. buckifan4life says: Jan 24, 2010 11:25 PM

    All Favre had to do was run and the Vikings had a FG shot to win it in regulation, instead he threw the ball across his body and got it picked off.
    Unreal!
    All he had to do was pump fake and RUN!!!

    So, Florio (yeah, I know Rosenthal wrote this one, but he can get Mike’s attention for me),
    Ten playoff games so far, and you’ve correctly picked how many? Two? Maybe next time you do a PFT video about people likely to choke in the postseason, you should feature yourself. Heck, even Tony Romo puts up better playoff numbers than you do. I think that chicken that Jay Leno uses to pick games has you beat by 4. Hack.

  93. DJSlyBri says: Jan 24, 2010 11:30 PM

    We Eagles fans know all too well what it is like to have such disgusting coaching at the end of regulation. They got to the 33 and shut it down for the field goal. Brad Childress is certainly an Andy Reid disciple.

    The one (and only) thing I will say defending Farve – no way on that play is he running it even if all 11 guys left the field. He was clearly beat up and I think it’s a minor miracle he got out of the pocket that well.

  96. bluestree says: Jan 24, 2010 11:31 PM

    Hard to imagine Farve’s lack of postseason sucess is not going to be a big part of his legacy. Even with one ring, he was never a post season MVP.

  97. bigfog says: Jan 24, 2010 11:31 PM

    Ahh, delicious Viking tears…so sweet.
    On another note, maybe Favre will finally be taken to task for his performance in this game. He lost this game for Minnesota with that interception. I demand accountability!

  98. MNFANINAZ says: Jan 24, 2010 11:31 PM

    For those bitter Minny fans blaming the refs and Roger Goodell……..check the penalty stats. The the box score, geniuses.
    Vikings – 5 penalties for 32 yards
    Saints – 9 penalties for 88 yards
    How about the roughing the passer gems the refs handed Favre tonight? So yeah, the refs really were helping the Saints. LOL
    And it was reported this week that a Favre-Manning matchup would’ve likely drawn an estimated 4 million extra viewers. Goodell wanted Favre to win tonight.
    Such a satisfying evening. Lord Favre goes out like a chump yet again. So what did Minny get for its $12+ million dollars this year and letting Favre act like he owns the place? An extra 2 reg season wins and an one single playoff win. LOL!!!!!

  105. Thorpie says: Jan 24, 2010 11:34 PM

    Great, hard fought game. I’ve been waiting 20 years for this!
    As for the comments about the refs, there were bad calls on both sides all game. It happens. Let it go. Complaining about the refs makes you sound sad and pathetic.
    …and for the comments about the Saints weak defense, I’ll say it agan – you can have all the yards you want, it’s the take aways that decide games. Ask Brett and AP, they will tell you all about it.

  106. THEpackersAREwhere? says: Jan 24, 2010 11:35 PM

    Vikings did everything they needed to win. Only allowed one big special teams play, moved the ball at will pretty much, and, in Saints standards, shut the Saints offense down. For some reason none of them could hold onto the ball. Not to complain, but that hit on Favre was a 15 yard Brady penalty. In OT, that pass interference call on Leber was not a penalty, uncatchable ball along with no contact between the players. All in all, the Saints won, the Vikings shot themselves in the foot repeatedly. GO SAINTS!

  107. Krashie21 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:35 PM

    Sorry Vi-Queens fans……one last post before I drift into a beautiful sleep knowing that your team filled with overrated, egomaniacal, douchebags is once again without a championship.
    When you ran up the score on the Cowboys that was karma, but when Sports Illustrated put your hero Brett on the cover……that made it DOUBLE KARMA!!!!!!!
    Jared Allen……a douchey Ed Hardy wearing, mouthpiece who disappeared on the second largest stage.
    Brett……diva, choke-artist, overrated egomaniac.
    Childress……another in a long line of Vi-Queen coaches who knuckle under and make bad decisions when it counts.
    And……..
    The Vi-Queens……a gutless, classless, organization with zero championships.
    The best day of football this year……..and it’s nice to know we’ll have two classy organizations in the Super Bowl, however, I’m sure that Brett will find a way to be the story in some way.
    His ego is too big not for him to try to make the headlines during SB week, but when they show the retrospectives of his career, the last play they’ll show is the one in the Superdome and a more fitting ending couldn’t have been written.
    GO COWBOYS!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey Viking fans, I can see you’re pissed off. Take a minute and rinse the sand out of your vaggys.
    This whole time you thought Packer nations was full of sh*t. Look at you now. You’re dissapointed, pissed off, and now all you have is your d*cks in your hands. Back to business as usual. Now go back to your state wide circle jerk over having Brett on your team.
    I hope it was worth selling your souls to Brett for two playoff wins.
    This is a young man’s game Brett. Take your ass back to the farm and sit on your porch like you should have done three years ago.

    Anyone thinking that Packers fans are not relishing this entire victory by New Orleans needs to have their cranium (look it up ViQueens fans) examined.
    Considering the fact that Brett Favre weasled his way out of GB in the first place by saying he didn’t want to come to McCarthy’s QB school, or OTA’s, or the first part of training camp, this is all rather comical.
    You see….if Brett HAD some to QB school….maybe he would have learned the first rule of being a QB, protect the ball, and never….and I mean….NEVER….throw the ball late across the middle. Especially when you had at least 5 yards of green grass in front of you, setting up a makeable field goal.
    Funny though….Minniehaha fans on here complaining about officials calls…..yet they pinned that on GB fans 2 weeks ago. Funnier still…..they say Minniehaha shoulda, coulda, woulda won that game if it was played in the Hefty Bag….errrr….dome. Yeah….and if my aunt had balls….she’d be my uncle.
    Karma is a bitch….and her name is Brittney Favre. You married her, so take her allllllllll the way to the altar of forbidden love. You win with Brett Fraud, you die with Brett Fraud.
    Here’s to Favre throwing ANOTHER int in a NFC Championship game. May his (purple) reign never end.

    Viking fans now you know how it feels to have Brett Favre at quarterback. He has a way to break your heart…interception to Brian Dawkins, interception to Cory Webster and now an interception to Porter. You can taste victory and then it’s gone. This begs the question, what is a great quarterback? Is it the most TD passes, most yards or is it championships? For my money it’s all about championships. I don’t want to take anything away from Favre and I don’t hate him. He is the toughest SOB if I’ve ever seen and has great natural talent but he falls short when it really matters. He is not even the greatest quarterback in Green Bay history. Bart Starr won five NFL Championships. Starr did not have Favre’s arm but he was clutch. Please don’t tell me that today’s players are bigger, stronger, etc. If Brett Favre had been the quarterback in a game like the Ice Bowl he would have thrown an interception. He pretty much did that in less cold weather when he threw the interception to Cory Webster.

  126. malpine says: Jan 24, 2010 11:45 PM

    Why are all the crybabies in packerland blogging? Their team defense stinks, they gave up EIGHT tds in their only playoff game, were swept by the Vikings, never sacked Favre, and never intercepted Favre. Where were the packers today? Easy, their “franchise” qb was off getting Urlacher’s sloppy seconds partying with Paris Hilton. Funny, but sad because its true.

  128. Bordner says: Jan 24, 2010 11:46 PM

    I am as big of a Brett Favre fan as you can find. I also hate the Vikings as much as anyone you can find. This was not the fault of Favre, this was the fault of the rest of the team – Peterson, Harvin, etc. The team choked!! Brett was doing his best to win it, but no one else could hold on to the damn ball!!! Adrian (isn’t that a girl’s name anyway?) and Percy (no comment), do something to earn your millions!!!! You’re all LOSERS!!!!!
    F the Viqueens!!! This was your last best shot before you move to L.A.!!!! LOSERS!!!! Now who is going to be our arch-enemies? The Rams?

    Shut up about Brett. He did not lose this game. Adrian Peterson did. Brad Childress did. Not Brett.
    Yes, he threw the interception on the final play but putting that on Brett is just not right.
    It could have ended differently.
    But the Vikings could have won the game 5 times before the final TD.
    So shut up about Brett and shut even more up about AP being the best running back in the league. NOBODY with that kind of “ball security” is the best anything.

  134. Bzilla says: Jan 24, 2010 11:50 PM

    Stating the obvious, only one team ends a season satisfied – it’s hard to win a SB. The Pack has one remotely recent SB 13 years ago – get over yourselves! Is that still the modern era?? No matter the end, the Vikes season was far superior to the Packers – Thanks for coming out of your caves to revel in our close loss. ’98 WAS a choke job – this wan’t anything close to that. The Saints were favored here. Favre gutted out a tough game where he was beaten down over and over. I’ll take him any day over your golden boy, throw for 400 yards every game but win no big game Karen Rodgers. Remember, we toasted your fat asses twice this year – no choking necessary!

  135. steelerfanforlife says: Jan 24, 2010 11:51 PM

    Really Favre choked?? What game were you guys watching? He threw 2 picks, one shouldn’t have counted b/c the guy dove at his legs. The second pick was dumb but it was just terrible coaching that put the team in a spot where they had to throw it. If anyone choked it was AD who couldn’t hold onto the ball. Take away the 2 fumbles in the red zone and this game would have gone the other way. Congrats Saints, I hope you beat Indy! Come on Favre haters give the 40 year old man some slack!

  136. Franchise says: Jan 24, 2010 11:52 PM

    Congrats to tha Saints and the NFL. They got the matchup they wanted.
    Its gotta be a tough pill to swallow knowing you outplay a team and still lose.
    The fumles were bad, the vintage Favre across his body INT was worse (why were they throwing on 3rd down after running twice?) and the 3 botched calls on the Saint final drive was blaitantly sick.
    Thomas’ 1st down leap was a half a yard short, Meachem didnt catch the ball, and the pass interference call was laughable.
    Congrats again Saints. Its not so much as you won the game, the Vikes just lost it.

  139. snnyjcbs says: Jan 24, 2010 11:56 PM

    98% of the QB’s in the NFL would have left the game and not finished as Favre did. Second if the youngsters he was playing with do not fumble away 5 balls with many in scoring position this game is not even close.
    Both teams could fall off the face of the Earth for all I care as I do not care for either one but the better team did not move on today.
    With all the mistakes that the Vikings had I stikll think they win the game if not for the subs that the Saints brought in at the end. The Saints subing refs was smart and if they should win the Super Bowl the owner must make sure to make a few extra rings and send them to the NFL offices.
    The Vikings were robbed at the end. What was turning out to be a great game was once again decided by the refs at the end and when it mattered, pathetic.

  140. Pestilence1972 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:57 PM

    Refs were brutal. I realize there were 5 turnovers, but the game was tied in overtime.
    First, gunner was blatently tripped on the overtime kickoff as he is honing in on Thomas at the 15 yardline. I think it was Griffith and I think he limped off.
    Then, the 4th down. How is the ball not moved back on review after Thomas fumbled?
    Then the Pass Interference? Not only was there little to no contact, but the ball was out of bounds and uncatchable.
    And the Meachum drop/reception. I hate how refs call receptions these days, but that one hit the ground.
    Add all that to the non-high/low call on Favre’s injury hit earlier in the game, and I think the Vikes got screwed.
    And don’t rebutt with the turnovers comments. Despite the turnover mess, the game was tied in overtime before the refs handed the victory to the Saints.
    Lame.

  141. Bzilla says: Jan 24, 2010 11:59 PM

No question, MN in every aspect of the game had a better season than GB. MN lost as the number two seed in the Conference Championship game, GB lost in the Wildcard Round as the fifth seed. MN was more successful than GB, FACT. Argue with that MAN PACKER FANS :)

  146. Thorpie says: Jan 25, 2010 12:07 AM

    Game stats? really? Come on Pervy…there is only 1 stat that means anything at the end of the game. I don’t care if Brees throws for negative yards and the defense gives up 1000 of them…if we got a “W” at the end of the game, isn’t that all that matters?
    I guess if it helps you sleep at night, then have at it, but you cannot honestly be on here quoting stats after losing the game. As for the margin of victory, it only takes 1 point more than the other guy to win the game. We scored 3. Period.

    Stating the obvious, only one team ends a season satisfied – it’s hard to win a SB. The Pack has one remotely recent SB 13 years ago – get over yourselves! Is that still the modern era?? No matter the end, the Vikes season was far superior to the Packers – Thanks for coming out of your caves to revel in our close loss. ’98 WAS a choke job – this wan’t anything close to that. The Saints were favored here. Favre gutted out a tough game where he was beaten down over and over. I’ll take him any day over your golden boy, throw for 400 yards every game but win no big game Karen Rodgers. Remember, we toasted your fat asses twice this year – no choking necessary!
    ————————————————–
    Karen Rodgers is sooo original. One guy has two years of starting experience and the other has 18. Who shouldn’t be making stupid mistakes at the end of the game? If in 4-5 years Rodgers is still making those mistakes you may have a point, but until then you need to just go back into your hole and shut your mouth.

    Vikings fans aren’t going anywhere. We had a good year but made too many mistakes and didn’t deserve to win today. Most people that have made negative comments on here about the Vikings root for teams that didn’t make it this far and probably got beat by the Vikings this season. It’s always tough when the season ends but we’ll be back.

    Why are all the crybabies in packerland blogging? Their team defense stinks, they gave up EIGHT tds in their only playoff game, were swept by the Vikings, never sacked Favre, and never intercepted Favre. Where were the packers today? Easy, their “franchise” qb was off getting Urlacher’s sloppy seconds partying with Paris Hilton. Funny, but sad because its true.

    The QB for the Vikings has a past, but no future. The QB for the Packers has a lot of future in front of him. Thompson made the right decision in choosing young potential over aged egomaniac and Chilly was wise to grab up Mr. Ego because he got a new contract out of it. I’m sure that Chilly will enjoy the weather in Los Angeles.

  152. redsquare says: Jan 25, 2010 12:21 AM

    The Vikings were obviously the stronger team on both sides of the ball. But the Saints played a much cleaner game, which, when matched with their talent, becomes a Better game. And that’s what makes champions.
    What stinks isn’t the Saints moving on–they played well enough to deserve it–but to have such an odd, freakish game with all of those turnovers and botched calls (I still can’t believe that last reception wasn’t overturned–everyone on the planet can see that ball was moving all the way down and pinned against the ground) leaves me with a bad taste. I don’t think we really got to see the best of either team, and that’s a waste.
    I’m still aghast at how many missed opportunities the Vikings left on the field. They had that game on a silver platter several times in the 4th quarter. It’s staggering. The team must be in shock. The best chance they’ll ever get, most likely. And they would have been a fully equal match for the Colts.
    All the best to the Saints, good luck bouncing back to the Vikings, and a hearty WTF to the refs. Really, officials–WTF?

    The Vikings fumbled the ball three times and were lucky to get it back.
    Two possible INT that the DB/LB dropped.
    If you (Vikes fans) get to change the out come of a play then the Saints get to do so as well.
    At the end of the day, you lost because of a dumb penalty (12 men in the huddle) and then an INT.
    The Refs didn’t do that to you.
    It hurts. I know. I felt the same way when they trounced us.
    I felt the same way when the Ravens (The fvking Ravens?) dismantled us in the Wild Card round.
    But it wasn’t the refs. At the end of the day, they made just a few more plays then you did.

    This would be an exciting game for every one. Some football players enjoy the wins and losses of their team counterpart. A lot of people have surely thought about how the AFC Championship game is basically Super Bowl III all over again. The New York Jets, versus an established Colts team (albeit the Indianapolis Colts, if you want to nitpick) with a legendary quarterback. This ought to be good – I’d even get payday loans to get to the game. Even Joe Namath is acknowledging the connection – so this should be an epic game. The Vikings –Saints game ought to be pretty great too.

    The final INT was a bad decision on Favre’s part, but if Peterson hadn’t washed his hands with butter before the game, Chilly would have had enough faith in him to have him rush the ball into better FG range. The Queens had abysmal play on all fronts when they needed it the most, but the fumble by Harvin that NO recovered on the 7 was the one that sealed the Bi-Queens fate. You simply cannot turn the ball over 5 times in a game and expect to win.

  163. scomibord says: Jan 25, 2010 2:00 AM

    IF…IF…IF…If the Vikings would have scored more points than the Saints, they would have won. The NFL only uses one stat to determine who wins the game, which team scores the most points. Turnovers are an extremely important part of the game. Do you think AD & Berrian just said to themselves, I am going to fumble & give the game to the Saints. Minnesota moved the ball up & down the field, granted, but the Saints defense created turnovers. Every turnover had something to do with a Saint creating it, except Favre’s INT in the fourth quarter
    Anyone remember the Giants Superbowl win & Tyree’s catch. The ball touched the ground, yet he still had control of it. Meachem had the ball pinned to his hip; yes it touched the ground, but he had control of it.

    Not to try to bail Favre out or anything, I’m not a huge fan or hater of the guy, but if he’d thrown an incomplete pass there Longwell is looking at what, a 58-yard FG try? People are acting like if he didn’t throw that pick the Vikings had the game in the bag. Get real.
    Favre did throw some tremendous passes in this game and took a beating without taking any sacks. I thought he played a top-notch game. If the Vikings win the coin toss the Favre-Manning hype machine would be in full force as we speak.
    And the yardage differential is indeed misleading. The huge kick return and short fields set up by turnovers limited the Saints yards. The game was almost always either tied or led by the Saints. An excellent game to watch.

    Definitely didn’t like that pass interference call in OT. That ball was not catchable and I’m not even sure there was any contact.
    Wasn’t cheering for either team, but that call left was very iffy when a team may not get to touch the ball at all.

Y’all can’t admit it was a hard fought battle between two awesome teams! None of you Viking fans will ever admit the Saints caused the fumbles and put pressure on Favre to make a bad throw…………..and to the so-called Viking fan who wishes the Saints and the officials where in the Superdome when Katrina hit…………..may you rot in Hell!!!!

    This one wasn’t on the refs, no matter how many calls were blown. And while Favre’s pass was ill-advised it certainly wasn’t the only reason the Vikes lost. (Besides, it wasn’t like the FG was a chip-shot)
    Poor play selection before the last pick, 12 men in the huddle coming out of a timeout, 175 fumbles in the game, no the Vikings can point the finger at themselves. Gotta admit, when you dominate the game statistically as they did and still lose, it could be defined as a choke job.

    >>>anybody notice that favre tried to call a time out before the 12 men penalty?…that should have been a 15 yarder for 2 timeouts in a row…
    I was wondering about this too so I had to look it up. Calling 2 timeouts in a row is legal in the NFL, however if you wait until after the ref whistles to signal that the play is ready to begin to call your 2nd timeout then it is a 15 yard Unsportsmanlike Conduct. Since Favre tried to call a timeout while still in the huddle and the ref doesn’t blow his whistle to signal play ready until after the offense is lined up then it was a clearly legal time to do so.

    For those bitter Minny fans blaming the refs and Roger Goodell……..check the penalty stats. The the box score, geniuses.
    Vikings – 5 penalties for 32 yards
    Saints – 9 penalties for 88 yards
    How about the roughing the passer gems the refs handed Favre tonight? So yeah, the refs really were helping the Saints. LOL
    And it was reported this week that a Favre-Manning matchup would’ve likely drawn an estimated 4 million extra viewers. Goodell wanted Favre to win tonight.
    Such a satisfying evening. Lord Favre goes out like a chump yet again. So what did Minny get for its $12+ million dollars this year and letting Favre act like he owns the place? An extra 2 reg season wins and an one single playoff win. LOL!!!!!
    =============================
    While I agree there isn’t a fix here by the NFL, and the Vikings had too many of their own problems to blame the refs, I still don’t understand what the number of penalties has to do with refs blowing calls. Are you saying there’s quota before no more penalties can be called? If the refs call so many against a team they can later mess up a bunch in that teams favor? If a team has 15 blatant penalties in a game but the refs call ten of them, that would be okay?
    You show a complete lack of football knowledge by thinking the total number of penalties called has any significance on whether or not the game was called in favor of one team or the other. (The Saints earned all of their penalties on their own.)You compound this by implying the roughing calls against the Saints weren’t warranted. McCrary took three steps to hit a QB who clealry didn’t have the ball and was now out of the play. Guys have been tossed for such cheap shots. The defender who picked Favre up and drove him to the ground did exactly what that rule (driving a QB to the ground) is designed to stop. There even should have been another on Favre’s first pick when the defender dove at his lowers legs.
    The Vikings got exactly what they were looking for when they went after Favre – a better chance to win. That’s all a team can hope for when adding any player to a team, because nothing else is guaranteed.

    Not even going to rub it in to Vikings fans, but I can’t believe how you people are making excuses for Favre and throwing AP under the bus.
    First fumble was as much Favre’s fault as AP’s. So in other words, AP lost one fumble, ran for 122 and 3 TDs and you act like him and the refs cost you the game. Not Favre.
    If Brett tucks and runs on that third down, he has 10 yards easily. 47 yarder for the win. Instead, with 10 seconds left in the NFC Championship game, he inexplicably throws another team-crushing INT and somehow “THAT DIDN’T COST YOU THE GAME?”

    As I said I would, I would like to congratulate the Saints on the win and for a well played game. I hope you partied int he streets til all hours last night. Good luck in Miami…I will be rooting for you!!!
    Just wan’t the Vikings year, I guess. A couple thoughts on the game:
    I think the Vikings outplayed the Saints overall,but that many turnovers will kill you. Still we got to overtime dispite all of them.
    Brees had a solid game.
    Favre had a solid game, dispite what I’m sure every disgruntled Packer fan will say. His last pass was an INT…no doubt about that. It was a bad throw. Did Packer fans KNOW that would happen? Of course.
    12 Men on the Field…Tahi/Childress, that is on YOU! Inexuseable…
    4&1 in OT was not a catch, IMHO.
    NO got called for roughing the passer…Vikes should have been one time (I think it was Ray Edwards driving Brees into the turf).
    Vikings front four played very well, dispite being on the road and dispite Allen getting held a fair amount. Of course, refs could call holding on just about every play, but what I am referring to are at least 2 where Allen beat his double team and had his jersey pulled on while trying to get to Brees.
    Vikes not capitalizing on the punt fumble by Bush was critical, IMHO.
    Hard fought game…good game (although admittedly hard to watch as a Vikes fan).
    I need some time to recoup…

    You “hate” Favre because he changed his mind, but it’s ok for you to do it? Weird.
    Also, there’s one big difference between you and Favre. There are actually people who wanted Favre to come out of retirement

    i don’t hate Brett Favre. i have never met him. Don’t put words in my mouth. was rooting for them last night.

    I would have been a lot less crushed if the Saints just beat the Vikings. That didn’t happen. The Saints were outplayed, but the Vikings literally gave the game away. I don’t know what they should do about Peterson. His trade stock can’t be too high, but his ego is too immense to check himself. Tiki Barber fixed his fumbles halfway into his career, why can’t AP? Oh right, because he’s not concerned about his fumbles, or his weight gain causing him to lose his explosiveness, or his pedestrian rushing yards… he’s still happy with himself. He needs to listen to coaches for once. He’s no longer the best RB in the NFL.
    That being said, the Colts will win the Superbowl. They’ve been beating teams… and beating them easily. The Saints did not impress me last night. And that makes this loss so hard to swallow. I wish Childress pulled a Dennis Green after the game. We let them off the hook!

    This is the problem with packer fans, The vikes beat them twice during the regular season, finish with a better record, advance 2 rounds farther than them in the playoffs, and yet they someone still think they’ve won.
    IF you people don’t see a problem with this, you need your head examined.
    For the (hopefully pretend) saints fans on here talking smack about the the bridges up in minny, maybe you need to realize that the REST OF THE DAMNED COUNTRY POURED IN MONEY when your crutch, whoops, hurricane hit, and you folks are still milking it. we had a MAJOR bridge, connecting 2 major metro areas collapse, and fixed the damn thing ourselves, without so much as a penny or volunteer from anywhere else in the rest of the country. we go through winters where the temp might not see above 0 for weeks at a time, yet no one here is bitching about, its part of the climate. yet when a part of the climate causes problem down there, you all look for a handout, you didn’t have the sense to leave your homes and suddenly its the rest of the countries fault?
    I dont mind helping a person in a time of need, but to turn around and act they way some of you folks are is just amazing.
    Packers suck terribly, the saints and the vikes tried incredibly hard to stay with team tradition at the end of that game, only the vikes could keep it real.
    packer fans had better remember that T-JAck and the GusBus got us 10-6 last season before running their mouths so damn much. we’re going to stomp you again and again.

    You are right. Favre had his chance with 19 seconds to go. Why am I trolling? Well its pro football and talking about championship games isn’t exactly “trolling” You know I came on here today completely respectful and you, my gay son, are going to single handily turn me into a prick. Which I can be very good at. How about you simply do not respond to anything I say and maybe, just maybe, it will make you appear like less of a stalker ad make my opinions even less relevent then they arleady are. Each response directed to me makes you that much more concerned or interested in what I have to say. Just ignore it.

    As for you hating Favre, I know you don’t literally hate him, hence the quotation marks there whiz kid. But it’s obvious you have issues with him, as evidenced by the name calling and constant bashing of him. It’s been 2 years. Time to stop burning jerseys and move on.
    How about you being a man of your word, for once, and actually stay off these Viking posts, and all other posts for that matter, until the draft, like you said you were going to? Trust me, you will not be missed.

    Ok idiots, enough is enough. This was a football game, and it had absolutely nothing to do with Hurricane Katrina, the bridge collapse, or terrorist cells. How pathetic is your existence that you have to make fun of such awful things in a discussion about a GAME.
    As a Viking fan and a Favre fan, this was a painful loss. But I would rather see them lose 1000 times than to witness something like Katrina or the bridge collapse again.
    I’ve been in some heated arguments on here before and said some mean things, just ask Supersuckers. But I’m guessing that even Super would agree with me saying that the morons saying these things are 100 times worse than anything I’ve ever said.
    I’m assuming you guys are adults, so start acting like it.

    yes I would agree. But saying someone is a horrible human being without even knowing them isnt much better. Anyway what part of the country do you live in? Just out of curiosity. You are beginning to sound like someone I know. And come to think of it would explain some things. not being a dick. I am seriously inquiring as to what part of the country you live in. You can be broad it doesnt have to be exact.

    What happened in the 59:41 before that interception doesn’t matter one bit. Bottom line is even with all the mistakes the Vikings made they were still in a tie game with 19 seconds left at the edge of field goal range for Longwell. Brett Favre was brought in for that exact situation. He was the one who was supposed to have the big game experience to make a play when it mattered most. Instead he throws a pass that even a rookie knows he can’t throw in that situation. Brett Favre is a great regular season QB, but when it comes to the playoffs, the bonehead comes out, He proved it again last night.

    Is Packerfan talkin’ sh*t??? Are you serious? If I remember right, the Packers were at home watching the NFC championship! Bunch of Favre haters! Favre is and always will be better than that whiner, Aaron Rogers. I’m not even a fan of the Vikings and I have to defend them. The Refs stunk it up. Meechem didn’t catch that pass and ya’ll know it. I think the NFL wants some sort of Katrina-feel good superbowl championship. Well I got news for ya, Manning and the boys are gonna tear da S-aints up.
    The 12 men in the hiddle is what scuttled the Vikings championship at the superbowl and that’s on Chilly and his staff. Not Favre.

    ******************
    I guess that Favre didn’t learn how to count in high school, college, Atlanta, Green Bay, New York and Minnesota. No wonder he threw so many interceptions in his career. He probably never realized that Int > 0 = Bad Decision because of his math skills…..

  219. buckifan4life says: Jan 26, 2010 12:45 AM

    He knows how to count his Superbowl ring on his hand and all-time passsing yards…
    It’s not Favre’s responsibility to pick the player personnel coming OUT of a timeout, you retard!
    Vikes turned the ball over 5 times and the Saints had to go into overtime and win a coin toss to win…Good luck with that against the Colts.

    You people are all sad. Packers fans, Cowboys fans, and even half you vikings fans. I am a vikings fan myself, but I refuse to be incorporated in your slander.
    Yah the Vikes lost it for themselves. Officiating, whatever, you turn the ball over that many times its bound to kill you. Favre didn’t cost us the game, our defense was absent, our hands buttery, and our simple will to win was not there.
    You vikes fans attacking Katrina, and saying all these poorly thought out statements makes me ashamed to be a part of this Vikings nation.
    You packers and cowboys fans, and whoever else keeps knocking the vikes, get over it, you got beat weeks before we did, congratulations, you are so much better than us NFC North champion vikings, or so much better than the team that absolutely Worked the cowboys in the second round. Classless, please, classless was not presenting a challenge to us whatsoever. But, Go COWBOYS! wow.
    Good luck in the super bowl saints. Represent the NFC proudly.
    I think all of you have forgotten what it means to be a fan. And for this it makes me sad for society.

  221. edgy1957 says: Jan 26, 2010 10:53 AM

    Why is it that Favre’s apologists will name everyone but him for his mistakes. It’s always someone else: the coaches, the receivers, the offensive line, the defense, the referees and even the poor guy in the stands who yelled “Peanuts, get your fresh hot peanuts” and caused Brett to look toward him at the wrong time so that he was distracted when he threw a pick at a crucial time. Add in the whiny Vikings fans and you’ve got triple excuses.
    You’d think that with the franchise nearly 50 years old that they’d have grown up by now but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

  222. Pestilence1972 says: Jan 26, 2010 2:52 PM

    I still think the refs need to be held accountable for their calls in overtime. Stats, turnovers, injuries, penalties – all of them are irrelevant (except the injuries) when overtime starts. Despite all the chaos, the Vikes and Saints had figured out a way to be tied after regulation. Both played brilliantly.
    And then the refs got over-involved.
    The 4th and 1 was fumbled and should have been moved back.
    The pass interference on Leber. Really?
    And the catch/non-catch?
    I loved the emotion of that game. I just think the refs tipped the scales in overtime.
