Vikings' web site declared victory prematurely

NFCChamps.jpgSeveral of you have sent to us the image that temporarily appeared on the Vikings’ official web site during Sunday night’s NFC title game.

Yes, the Vikings had declared victory over the Saints before victory had been secured.

It happened not because anyone connected to the football operation opted prematurely to declare “mission accomplished,” but because some guy with the keys to the official computer account published the prepared image prematurely.

Still, football fans are a superstitious lot, as evidenced by the clothes they wear on game day, the food they eat before kickoff, and the specific spot in the room where they sit during the games, often in the fetal position.

In many cases, it’s enough to make Rain Man say, “Dude, you should see a doctor about that.”

So for those who fear the concept of the jinx, the team’s online operation committed the biggest possible faux pas on Sunday night.

    Well,when Vikings have the ball down there and Longwell the kicker,easy to think we would be champs. Chilly hung us out with the 12 man blunder, victory was ours. Saints and Packer fans dodged a bullet.Feel blessed!

    Now this is some news! A webdesigner who accidentally went live with a design his bosses told him to get ready.
    Are you really hurting that bad for stories? Do the new taskmasters at NBC impose a weekly story quota on you?

  4. derekinmadison says: Jan 26, 2010 8:56 AM

    Karma is a bitch. Just ask the Jets who wanted to sell AFC champs gear before the game. Hey Vikqueens, you got what you deserved, a full dose of Brent being Brent all in about 10 seconds. We here in Packerland hope he keeps you on the fence for at least a few months.

  5. RodgersIsn'tAPussy says: Jan 26, 2010 8:57 AM

    Favre probably told them to do it, since he was so hell-bent on “sticking it” to the Packers. Too bad. You failed – Thompson and the Packers win.

  6. DanSnyder says: Jan 26, 2010 9:00 AM

    If that’s true then I believe the Refs were the ones taken over by the jinx. I’m a redskins fan so don’t get on me about this but the vikings got screwed by the refs. I won’t go as far as they would have won or should have won with the way the saints benefited a lot from the refs decisions but having seen my team go through the exact same thing against the saints I know how much it sucks. Oh well that’s life.

    Favre sold his soul only to repeat his last year with the Pack(except the Packers won more games that year, I guess minni wastn that good after all). Hope making the Favre name a laughing stock was worth it.

  15. tudefit says: Jan 26, 2010 9:13 AM

    Minnesota elected a comedian to the Senate. Makes them a joke already and this just keeps it moving forward.
    I was hoping against hope they would not kick a game winning field goal but saw no way it wasn’t going to happen. You give Peterson the ball on 3rd down and then take your chance. The 12 man ordeal – what a joke!
    I was cursing New Orleans when the Vikes looked like they were just running out the last 2 minutes and they called a time out on Vikes 3rd down – there is a coaching blunder I haven’t seen mentioned.
    To elaborate – the Vikings were hitting on 3rd down all day. Let the clock run down and see what happens on 3rd down. If they hit it they now have less time to move the ball into scoring range. If they miss, you call your time out and get the ball back with a minute to play. Instead they call it on 3rd down! Why have I not seen criticism about this?

  16. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 26, 2010 9:16 AM

    “Well,when Vikings have the ball down there and Longwell the kicker,easy to think we would be champs.”
    But then again, BertFarve was the QB so you should have known that he’d blow it with a spectacular INT into coverage.

    Hey pervy, take Dan Snyders junk outta your mouth. What is your obsession with Packer fans? Did you wanna be one when you grew up except you’re such a little bitch ass loser we don’t want you? That NFC champions picture looks good, considering the Vikings did just as good as 29 other teams did. Your father Lord Favre did you guys a favor, now most of you won’t have to call in to work on Sunday to watch the SuperBowl. We all know those toilets aren’t gonna clean themselves!!

    If you want to know what it’s like to be a Viking fan, then set up 5 TVs in your living room and simultaneously play the following movies: Caddyshack, Brian’s Song, Halloween, Rudy and the Bad News Bears.

  31. PurpleIsForGays says: Jan 26, 2010 9:46 AM

    Wow, how do you see that game being affected by the refs? The PurplePeterPuffers had so many drives kept alive by bogus call’s it almost made me sick. The 15 yards for the tackle by hargrove, the defensive holding that magically happened 20 yards from the play taking place. If you guys want to fantasize about the refs playing a role in this game go ahead.
    The only thing that matters is you have another year of dusting an empty trophy case. Suck it!

    In his last 3 NFC championship games Favre`s final pass was intercepted. In all 3 instances it directly led to his teams not winning. This is one of the huge reasons why the Packers let Favre go. He played poorly in the playoffs since 98. Not to mention the circus he made regarding his on again off again retirement. Remember, He retired from the Packers in march of 2007. Packers then give starting job to Aaron Rodgers. Packers also spend 2 draft picks on QB`s one was a 2nd rounder. Packers then begin to prepare offense around Rodgers. Then in late May 2007 Favre tells Packers he wants to play again. Packer personel make plans to fly to Mississippi to discuss the matter with Favre. The day before the Packer personel (Gm Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthey) were scheduled to fly Favre contacts them and tells them not come because he will remain retired. Ok Packers then reassure Rodgers he is now the starting QB and develop team around Rodgers. Then during camp Favre tells Packers he wants to play again. Packers have already moved on and were tired of this soap opera. Also keep in mind Rodgers was in a contract year and that there no way he was going to re-sign with Packers if they brought back Favre again. Also remember Favre had held the Packers hostage the 2 previous seasons with his retirements. The Packers had enough of it. Favre got to the point where he thought he was bigger then the Packers. In fact the year before when Asked what the team thought of him delaying preparations for the next season, Favre responded:
    “What are they going to do, cut me?”
    Favre is/was a great qb but it was time for him to go. Favre wanted to go to the Vikings. The Packers naturally didnt want him to go to a divisional rival. He was traded to the Jets. After that season he lied and told the Jets he was retiring. Of course he just told them that so they would release him. Then amazingly he comes out of retirement to sign with the Vikings.
    Most Packer fans have a bad taste in thier mouths regarding how Favre handled the situation. Yes, both sides could have handled it better but I think Favre deserves most of the blame.
    Packers now seem to have a very good QB in Rodgers for the next 10-12 years. Had the Packers brought Favre back Rodgers would be gone.

  35. SWILPackfan says: Jan 26, 2010 9:55 AM

    You poor, poor Viking fans. Go ahead and blame the refs. But they didn’t fumble a thousand times. Keep preaching about Harvin and Peterson. Just be happy they lost Sunday because I’m sure one of them (probably Peterson) would have fumbled the the Halas trophy onto his foot anyways.
    And to those concerned, “Brent” is a nickanme given to the flip-flopping, has been, choke artist that you purple pussies fell in love with in September-when he was too good to go to training camp.

    ————————————————
    Proof once again that all Vikings fans care about is whether or not they beat the Packers. They can choke in the NFC Championship or even the Super Bowl (if they are old enough to remember those), but as long as they beat the Pack, they have won “their Super Bowl” for that year.
    Aim higher, losers.

    .Vikings have had the worst luck of any Pro team in sports history
    ** 4 Superbowl losses
    ** 5 straight losses in NFC Championship games
    **Korey Stringer dies in training camp.
    **The love boat incident
    **Gary Anderson who had just completed the first perfect regular season in NFL history (not missing a single extra point or field goal attempt the entire year), missed a 38-yard attempt with less than 2 minutes remaining in NFC championship game that most likely puts Vikes in Superbowl in 98.
    **in 2003 Arizona’s last second touchdown on 4th and 28 against Vikings eliminated Vikings from playoffs. The moment of Arizona’s touchdown was actually the first moment the entire season in which the Vikings hadn’t led their division. The Vikings became the second team in football history to miss the playoffs after getting off to a 6–0 start
    **The “Hail Mary” pass Drew Pearson caught against the Vikes in 75 NFC championship to give Dallas the win in the final minute.
    **Jim Marshalls wrong way run
    **The Herschel Walker trade in which Vikings gave Dallas three 1st rounders, three 2nd rounders, plus a 3rd and a 6th rounder in addition to 5 players. Walker lasts only 3 seasons in Minnesota
    .
    **Vikings despite being favored, lose 41-0 in NFC championship game in 2000.
    **Green Bays Antonio Freeman makes one of the all time great miracle catches in overtime to defeat Vikings in 2000
    **2010Favre`s 4th quarter interception vs Saints in NFC championship
    I`m sure there are things I missed but this is why I believe the Vikings have had the worst luck in Professional sports history

  43. packfan52 says: Jan 26, 2010 10:30 AM

    The Vikings were so happy they got Favre, but with Favre comes baggage…and they got a sh*t load of it dumped on em sunday. Don’t blame the refs, albeit the PI call was bull, but when you turn the ball over five times, and when favre throws a dumbass interception (remembering playoffs vs. NY, PHI, and STL off the top of my head) you get the favre we lived with for seventeen years. I’m glad we got rid of him. I trust Rodgers a hell of alot more with the ball then i ever did Favre. took Favre 20 years to have a 7 interception year, took Rodgers 2.

    I can’t decide if Vi-Queen fans are delusional, or just stupid. Victory was NOT yours.
    Don’t believe the LIES of people like Florio, Peter King and Rich Eisen. Victory was NOT yours because the most overrated quarterback in the history of the NFL made yet another stupid decision when the game was on the line —- something that he’s been doing for 19 years.
    Brett Favre wears more than this than “Chilly”……..
    The premature web posting reflects the classlessness and stupidity of a franchise that will NEVER learn how to win.
    Free yourself and let it go. It’s over and so is Brett’s legacy.

  45. Beer Cheese Soup says: Jan 26, 2010 10:33 AM

    Look at all of my fellow Pack fans giving the rest of us a bad name just as I predicted they would.
    Look here people. Yes, of course it’s hilarious the Vikings choked in true Viking fashion once again. Of course it’s also a vindication and a relief to be right about the original Playoff Interception Machine. Of course it’s a beautiful thing to finally be rid of all of the Viking fairweathers who spewed “This is our year!”, lyrics to Starship songs, and other over-capitalized idiocy all season long.
    However, there is one small issue with celebrating these things so openly, and it’s called Room To Talk.
    See, no matter how fittingly the Vikings’ season ended, it didn’t end at our hands. In fact, the Vikings swept us in convincing fashion. We didn’t beat them in the championship game. We didn’t even SNIFF the championship game. We were too busy going one and done with a Ted Thompson OL and an overrated defense.
    So, leave the very few loyal Viking fans that haven’t run and hidden alone. Unless you’re a Saints fan, they still got the last laugh on you even despite their loss.

  46. EMan says: Jan 26, 2010 10:42 AM

    The Vikes did great. Kicked the stupid cheesies butts twice and POUNDED the NFC north.
    You idiot Packer girls don’t seem to remember all your own words about Farve being so crappy this year do ya?
    If anyone is wrong it is the Packer faithful (if there is such a thing outside the crapper wall at the kiddie care daycamp), thinking the guy was any less then he always was.
    I used to HATE the guy but I have nothing but respect today for him, which is far more than I can say for any of you 8 yr old pimple faced whimps posting garbage mouth on here.

    @ zeakman
    Finally a post from a true fan of the game & his team. Yes, the Vikings had a wonderful season and the Ol’ Man had alot to do with it. Don’t think your season would have been anywhere near as fun & successful without him. Your last sentence is the epitome of what a fan sohuld be.
    Provided one of the existing QB’s paid attention to Favre this year (assuming he does not come back) or maybe the Vikes draft a good
    young QB I look forward to many good games between the Pack & the Vikes for many years.
    Also, as bordner puts it for all you guys who keep bringing up the 2 wins against the Pack, you probably do need to aim a little higher.

  51. Nordmann says: Jan 26, 2010 10:51 AM

    The Vikings were still playing when 29 other teams were eliminated. Most of the people on here ripping on the Vikings and their fans root for 1 of those 29 teams. The ultimate success is winning the Super Bowl, but beating the Packers twice, winning the division again, and making it to the NFC Championship still made this a fun and successful season.

    This is just classic, now give us the name of the web master in the Biqueen’s organization that is responsible for this mess, we want to name him to the Vikings Hall of Infamous. You know, right next to the Whizanator, a group shot of the lickees (McKinnie’s lunch mates otherwise known as hookers) from the Love Boat cruise, and McKinnie’s metal pipe (slightly dented from the bouncer’s head)
    We called this last summer when Childress threw away any pride and diginity that he had when he ran to the airport to blow, I mean, escort Favre. We predicted this would not end well, that Favre came with baggage and lo and behold, Favre made it thru most of the season without showing his true tendencies until the last play.
    In team history known for choking, who could write a script that Favre would throw that INT, no one would have believed it. So the Vikings reputation is only made stronger as the team that can’t get it done. Choker’s choke, that’s just the way it is.

    Hey Mountaindont you’re a real idiot. Whats luck have to do with anything you mentioned especially “The love boat incident”. And in your first rant giving us the history of the Packers and Favre you forgot to mention the 20 million offer from the Pack if Favre didn’t play again for another team.

  57. footballrulz says: Jan 26, 2010 11:06 AM

    I used to HATE the guy but I have nothing but respect today for him, which is far more than I can say for any of you 8 yr old pimple faced whimps posting garbage mouth on here
    _______________________________
    Would you respect him had he went to say, the Bears? Of course not. You respect him because he went to the VIkes and finally got them near the promised land and then “pulled a Favre. Just like he did for the Pack in 2004/2007 and that’s not even bringing up the Rams game.
    Quit being such a hater man. Relish the season you just had. Relish those two regular season wins against the Pack. But as I said alittle earlier, aim a little higher. Actually watching the team you pull for go to a SB and actually win is an absolute awesome feeling that I truly hope you get to experience one day.
    UNtil then, well, at least you beat the Pack twice and you did get to see how good the Vikes are with a real QB. Oh and the good part is–you got Chilly for three more years. Chilly knows how to get good players–now hopefully this year he learned a little from Favre about aactually coaching them, playing to win and not playing to not lose & maybe a little more sideline discipline.

    congratulations on your moral victories, vikings! you really showed the packers and got yourselves another nfc north championship! seeing as how that’s all you’ll ever win, I’d say it was a really successful season for you guys! the difference between the packers and vikings is a franchise quarterback for 10+ years and a higher draft pick in the 2010 draft.

  59. Pervy Harvin says: Jan 26, 2010 11:11 AM

    From MN StarTribune. What fans are saying. Why we are far classier than you Packer assholes who forget your history.
    “Appreciation…
    Isn’t it telling, after only one gut wrenching, exciting and fun season with the legend, number 4, Brett Favre at the helm of the Vikings offense, how appreciative we all are for what Brett added and gave to our team. Mean while so many Packer fans keep on disrespecting Brett Favre whose legend was born in Green Bay, where he took the Packer fans on many a wild ride. To me as in society, there are just some people who thrive on hate.”
    “Packer fans an embarassment
    i am a season ticket holder for the packers, and i continue to be appalled by the nasty things packer fans say about brett and his family. it broke my heart to see the loss yesterday, and i’m consoled by the kind words the vikings players and fans have for brett today. the packers–along with their press and most of their fans–have become a classless organization.”
    “Vikings Are A Class Act!
    Yesterday was one of the toughest sports days of my life. I grew up down the road from Brett, went to USM and have followed him for years. At the same time, I, like Brett began following the Saints as a kid and have been a life long Saints fan. This year I like thousands of others became a Vikings fan second to my Saints. I appreciate the class of your fans and your appreciation for what Brett stands for.”
    “Favre
    I want to thank Brett and the whole team for giving the Viking fans a great fun year of football. It would have been great to reach the SB I was so counting on him going out that way but it was not meant to be. I do however want to express my disgust for the hateful comments Packer fans have been putting on these blogs, it makes me not want to claim I am from Wi. Don’t they have anything better in life then to scorn a guy who played his heart out for them for so many years? No he was not perfect, but who the heck is? I hope he never retires a Packer, they have become one of the worst fan bases I have ever seen and they used to be the best…….now NO CLASS whatsoever.”
    “Oh ya, Packer Fans…
    Go back and stir the cheese or milk the cow. I respected Brett when he was a Packer because he was one heck of a football player. How fortunate we are as Viking and Packer fans to say we had one of the best QBs ever! But no, you cheeseheads have to boo him in your stadium and say negative things about him here. Shame on you!!!”

    LB,
    That’s the best you got? Did you even read the whole post because you wouldn’t have responded that way if you had. Yes, we did lose to the Bears and I came away happy with how we played and I said “that was one of the best games I’ve ever seen.”
    You prove my point more than anyone. Thank you for the congrats for beating you guys! Don’t know who will be our QB next year, good question. Thanks for the offseason wishes as well.

    I think what was really “gorgeous” was to watch Sharon Rodgers pretend he was David Beckham on the last play of the game.

    Point I’m saying: We didn’t make the SB. We could say Favre blew it for us.But you see,we are classier than that. The whole team lost,Brett played his ass off. We thank him,not step on him.You know…like Pack nards do.

  70. thing2 says: Jan 26, 2010 12:03 PM

    I bet it was the refs who threw that up on the site. They were doing anything and everything else they could to screw the Vikes, right?
    After all, who REALLY knows what they’re doing underneath that veiled hood? They could have the finest Commodore 64 going full-speed under that bad boy. I bet they were also programming the computer chips in the footballs to randomly jump out of the hands of anyone wearing purple or , while in flight, to suddenly change course and end up in the hands of the opponent.
    Wake up, Vikings fans. As someone who grew up in Vikings’ country, I know this story all too well. It’s always someone else’s fault. They are always the greatest team to ever step foot on this planet…until they aren’t.
    Regardless of how the calls went down, YOU HAD 5 TURNOVERS!!! Subtract any one of those and you win the game. Period.

  71. RealPervyHarvin says: Jan 26, 2010 12:15 PM

    I love how pervy can call Vikings fans the classiest fans and in the league and in the same sentence call people aholes and pieces of sh!t. Real humble. Stay classy Minnesota.

    Speaking of class, what does it it say about you to pretend to be a “classless” Vikings fan?
    Seriously, you must have some insecurity issues.

    Pervy…he obviously was NOT referring to any of the ViQueen douchebags on PFT. Pretty fitting that once his teams accomplishes the unthinkable he has already bolted. FAIR WEATHER FANS…MINNY DESERVES THEM…AND THEY DESERVE MINNY. Lifelong Saints simply relishing no Saints in the Pro Bowl. WHO DAT!!!

    Chin up Vikings fans. It was a great season sad to see another one go down like this. But no one said being a Vikings fan was easy. Make no mistake about it we are cursed, we may never win a superbowl, and we maight not even have a team in a couple of years, but I for one will never jump off the bandwagon, I bleed purple. SKOL!

    I lived in Webster, SD when Brock Lesnar was in high school. Tough guy but sort of crude – much like you I guess. Seriously though dude, you’ve got to get a life. You spend your whole day defending your Vikings and taking issue with anyone who doesn’t share your opinion. They had a really good season just like the Packers did two years ago. The fact is that it wasn’t meant to be. No one to blame. To expect that they will get as close next year even with Favre might be a stretch. Injuries, good luck, etc. must go your way. Ask the 2007 Patriot and Packer teams about that. That’s why there is such a turnover of playoff teams from year to year. Chill out buddy and go ice fishing or whatever it is you do other than live and die for the Minnesota Vikings. Life is too short to take everything so personal as you do. People like me like to pull your strings to see your reaction.

  81. Medipaul says: Jan 26, 2010 2:15 PM

    Reading these posts confirmed what I’ve known for some time: Viking fans are idiots. To try to make up for their lousy franchise and poor fanbase, they appear from the woodwork to talk trash when the team is winning. Unlike Packer fans, they have nothing to fall back on during a down year, like memories of titles, a rich tradition and beautiful stadium. Then they label the Packer fans classless because we boo a guy who lied to us multiple times to weisel his way to a team that we hate. Sure, he had every right, he played well and it was a good fit for him…but he knows we loathe that team, so to expect anything less than boos is absolutely rediculous. This is sports…and to all those “Packer fans” who think other Packer fans who stay true to the rivalry are “classless”, go root for Minnesota. Pretty easy to get tickets to the Metrodump, so have fun. When Favre returns to retire and goes into the Hall as a Packer (he will, anyone who suggests otherwise is a moron and would have no PR skills) I will cheer him then. But I boo the way everything was handled and the fact that he came to play us as a viking. I root for a team, and I don’t care if St. Peter descends from heaven to QB the vikes…I hope he loses.
    Packer fans don’t owe Favre anything. He gave us his heart and many memories, but Packer fans also treated him and his family like royalty and donated to his charities, etc. Favre didn’t make an exception for Packer fans, so I won’t make an exception for him.

    Eman says: “The Vikes did great. Kicked the stupid cheesies butts twice and POUNDED the NFC north.”
    Except they did lose to the pathetic Chicago Bears in the cold and their pathetic interception throwing QB. Hopefully out with the old gunslinger and in with the new one in Chicago. Although Brett Farce is like cockroaches. You can’t get rid of them no matter what you do. He will be back and Pervy will be creaming his Wranglers.

    Both of our seasons are over now. I give credit where it’s due, to a team that swept us and gave me one of the greatest playoff games I’ve ever watched, but everything else beyond that is just speculation, from both sides.
    It’s over for us now. Go Saints in the Bowl, and then you guys get yourselves a stadium and figure out who your QB is while we work on getting Thompson fired (at). Either way, see you next season.

    I kinda let our battle die down and let you post your inane meandering thoughts, wwith out reply.
    Seriously, you must miss me or something, yet your calling me “gay”?
    And calling Pervy out for mom sis stuff, the 2nd oldest trick in the book?

    Hey Pervy when did you start working for the Vikings Website?
    Are you still arguing with management that the Vikings did win and they should leave your work alone stick to your guns Pervy.
    Don’t let them take down your Superbowl victory posting either.

    Hey Packer fans, Vikings win, we beat you twice, you lost twice, we’ll beat you again next year, with Tarvaris. How can you say you won and we lost, you lost in the first round lol. Talk about being obsessed with Brett Favre.

    ____________________________________
    RIIIGHT… Because Tarvaris has traditionally always owned the Pack up to this point. That is, at least if going 1-5 against them would be considered a success.
    Assuming you don’t get Favre back or trade for someone else this offseason, Sage is by far the better option, and I don’t think even Coach Dome-in-the-Dome is quite stupid enough not to see that.
    I could be giving him too much credit there though.

  90. EMan says: Jan 27, 2010 1:41 AM

    The saddest irony for all GBay fans is that their team is now and will always be remembered as Brett’s team (the few remaining Lombardi fans don’t use the PC and sure as hell are not here squinting at the monitor).
    BUT
    the bye line on Brett’s career is retiring as a Viking. He will be remembered most for this year. His best year and the fact that at 40 years old he almost did the impossible. Brett will go down as a Viking. Forever. He washed that chessie stank right outta his hair.
    Packers who? No one cares about you or Rodgers or Thompson. They cared about Favre and always will remember him in Purple. So sure, retire if you need to Brett and thanks for the awesome season.

    Face it, as much as we wish he would be remembered as a Minnesota Viking, all they will associate your club with, in connection to Favre, is how the Packers fans got to say, “I told you so.” to Vikings fans. I know that must be tough to hear, but it’s just the facts.

  94. jeffragnarchicken says: Jan 27, 2010 12:41 PM

    Yep you really told us.
    He took a 1st round loser and elevated them to the conference champ. game.
    Meanwhile Gayrod led his team to a loss in the WC round.
    Favre embarassed the pack 2 times a long the way.
    Worried about the next 10 years? Not with the Teabag and Mumbles show going on in Green Bay!!

    @beercheesesoup
    I dont know what your personal attack was to me all year, but to slam my “THIS IS OUR YEAR!!” comments confuse me.
    I dont know if you know this, but I was one game off! One game from my optimism being correct!
    I beleived in my Vikes this year, and you can punish me for that if you want, but I truly felt it.
    I still think Favre is great, hope he comes back next year!
    That loss was not his fault, one of six mistakes, just at the end, so it looked bad.
    So just so your happy about my pain, go ahead, we still swept you, and that is great but its not my goal of being a Vikings fan.
    I want a SB victory once in my life, just once and I’m happy.
    If Favre comes back, maybe next year?
    MAYBE NEXT YEAR!!
    MAYBE NEXT YEAR!!
