Shiancoe says there "might be a little extra out there" when Vikings play Saints

nfl_shiancoe.jpgDuring the 2010 season, the Minnesota Vikings will return to the Superdome for a rematch of the NFC title game, against the Saints.

And Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe recently told Howard Balzer and Dan Leberfeld of Sirius NFL Radio that the Vikings will be looking to exact revenge against the Saints for the illegal hits the New Orleans defense applied to quarterback Brett Favre in the NFC Championship.

“When you’ve got teams like that and defensive coordinators saying those types of things publicly it just creates a little turmoil, I feel, a little animosity,” Shiancoe said.  “So it all depends on who it is placed upon and how they react to it, man, but we didn’t like that too much, of course.  Especially being that it was Brett, it’s unnecessary hits and a little bit of extra.  So, you know, we play these guys again.   It might be a little bit extra out there.”

Like teammate Ray Edwards, Shiancoe says he didn’t realize that the Saints were applying “remember hits” to Favre.  And Shiancoe says he would have done something about it, if he had known.

“That’s what I’m trying to tell you, is that I didn’t know it was going on because usually I was in a route or stuff like that but after the game when I seen all that definitely I probably would have said something to our defense,” Shiancoe said.  “And, like, that’s the truth.  I would have said something to our defense about it and it would have been damn chaos out there.   It would have been a war out there.”

It’s just another reason to hope for the NFL and NBC to schedule the Vikings to visit the Saints on September 9, as the first game of the 2010 regular season.  And if it happens, I’ll be there, infiltrating the Vikings radio broadcast.

Of course, the folks who run the Vikings radio broadcast might feel differently about that vow, but I’ve got nearly seven months left to wear them down.

    Jeez what a bunch of vaginas. You got beat. Seek therapy and deal with it.

  2. pfii63 says: Feb 16, 2010 5:17 PM

    So he would have done a better job if only he had known? Or the Vikings’ defense would have played better if Shiancoe had fired them up? WTF is this?
    Newsflash: If going to the Super Bowl isn’t enough motivation, you don’t belong on the field. Who really cares about this clown’s comments?

  3. The Wishbone says: Feb 16, 2010 5:21 PM

    hahaha
    “I would have said something to our defense about it.”
    Way to man up, Shiancoe.

  4. Wukong says: Feb 16, 2010 5:21 PM

    Empty talk. First of all, any Vikings saying “They didn’t know” are making themselves look like morons. Clearly the goal was to smack Favre around. That was established early in the game. So them pretending like they didn’t know and if they had “they would have done something about it” is disingenuous babble from a bunch of clowns trying to save face or look tough.
    Furthermore, I love the notion that he can “give a little extra” in a regular season matchup, but not when the Super Bowl was on the line. What a load of crap. God, the Vikings are just a failure as an organization from top to bottom. It’s pathetic.

  5. kuze says: Feb 16, 2010 5:21 PM

    A few extra inches maybe

  6. bigfog says: Feb 16, 2010 5:22 PM

    Maybe he should’ve given “a little extra” when it actually matter.

  7. HarrisonHits says: Feb 16, 2010 5:23 PM

    Hey Shiancoe, until the defenses start pulling out AK47s and rocket launchers while fighter jets are bombing you, it is NOT A F”ING WAR !!!! It is a game. Period. Yes you play hard and hit each other hard bit it is not war. NOT.
    I hate it when morons make statements like this.

  8. LovinBlue says: Feb 16, 2010 5:24 PM

    Didn’t realize Shiancoe played D.

  9. Pervy Harvin says: Feb 16, 2010 5:25 PM

    Hell yah! Tell em’ Shank. Look for the Vikings to play Longest Yard style defense if they make that game happen. Plus no turnovers,which means a 21 point win for the Vikings.

  10. Postman says: Feb 16, 2010 5:27 PM

    Being that you’re a life-long Vikings fan, I’m sure they’d have no problem letting you into the booth.
    Seriously Mike. 1/3 of all your stories are Vikings stories these days. It would be slightly more tolerable if you’d just be up front with your readers about your allegiance to the Vikings.

  11. Chapnasty2 says: Feb 16, 2010 5:27 PM

    How long are we going to have to listen to the Vikings complain that their QB was hit? None of the hits were dirty until the pu$$y rules went into effect and as I see it they still aren’t dirty. It is football, the D’s job is to hit the QB hard, before he throws the ball so he knows to get rid of it faster on the next play. Stop crying!

  12. parasonic says: Feb 16, 2010 5:28 PM

    all I read was more crying. I didn’t know the vikings were a AAA High School squad. Man the F up, do the job you are paid to do, play football, and don’t make excuses. “But he hit me first…wahhh”. STFU, seriously.
    And why does Ray Edwards think he has room to talk? He’s not even in the top 5 players on his team let alone in the NFL. I like how the classy players that do their talking on the field and show up on Sunday get theirs. If the Saints lost to the Colts this wouldn’t even be a topic.

  13. jackers252 says: Feb 16, 2010 5:28 PM

    And how many hits did the vaulted d-line of the vikings get on Drew during that game? I think they only touched him once all game. What makes you think they will get any more pressure next year when Jared “Overrated” Allen has to go against an All Pro Left Tackle instead of basically a rookie? Maybe Shiancoe and the rest of their pass protectors should work on blocking this offseason.
    Vikings players cry almost as much as their fans.

  14. dcowboy7 says: Feb 16, 2010 5:28 PM

    The opening game gets a big rating anyway so why burn min/no….save it for november sweeps.

  15. Postman says: Feb 16, 2010 5:29 PM

    As for the story, who cares?
    The Saints were penalized every time time the ref caught a late shot (which I think was twice, and one of them was questionable). All the other hits were legit.
    And before the Vikings can put some extra shots on Brees, they’ll have to actually get to him first. And that didn’t happen in the NFC Championship.

  16. lebowski says: Feb 16, 2010 5:30 PM

    I’m sure your super-d-dooper, bestest buddy Paul Allen can finagle a way for you to get on his broadcast. Remember your earplugs and vomit bags.

  17. vikesuk4ever says: Feb 16, 2010 5:31 PM

    Still crying after 3 1/2 weeks.

  18. aloud2judge says: Feb 16, 2010 5:31 PM

    While it’s true the Saints played dirty… I don’t know how an entire team and coaching staff can not see what they were doing to Brett out there.
    Bad coaching all the way down. From Chilly all the way to Leslie Frazier (who I’d re-think about HC possibilities) and his D staff for not paying enough attention to the game. One counter shot and the game would have been different. The Saints were lucky and the Vikings were stupid. A damn shame the “better” team didn’t win.

  19. ceekay says: Feb 16, 2010 5:32 PM

    nfl players are as dumb as dirt
    i never knew hitting hard was so offensive shiancoe.
    so u are trying to tell me had shiancoe said something do the defense they would played harder and hit brees more? yeah right, brees doesnt get hit
    u are a moron shiancoe, your career will derail the moment favre leaves football

  20. Stealersrule says: Feb 16, 2010 5:33 PM

    The Vikings better hope they do not play the first game of the season against the Saints. Favre does not like to do training camp, OTA’s, or preseason. He will not be in shape to run from the Saints defenders, and will get beat up worse than he did in the playoffs.

  21. Tom says: Feb 16, 2010 5:34 PM

    What a complete pile of stinky BS! Why did he think Farve left the field hobbling with two guys under him! I am pretty sure the light should have turned on in his head.
    Also, with all this talk going on the Vikings better not get whooped in the Superdome or they are going to look real stupid.

  22. Big Stretch says: Feb 16, 2010 5:36 PM

    How is it possible that the defense had no idea what was happening on offense in a game that lasted over 3 hours.
    i know that not all defensive players watch the game when the offense is on the field, but come on now.

  23. .VoxVeritas says: Feb 16, 2010 5:36 PM

    “A damn shame the “better” team didn’t win. ”
    It’s a shame that the better team between the Cowboys and Vikings didn’t win in the divisional round, too.

  24. Levito says: Feb 16, 2010 5:39 PM

    he should keep that little extra in his towel next time.

  25. prmpft says: Feb 16, 2010 5:41 PM

    here’s a novel idea – why don’t you BLOCK you dumb ass – maybe folks wouldn’t have been comin’ in like well-water if you weren’t only there to catch the ball…

  26. CaptainFantastik says: Feb 16, 2010 5:41 PM

    Gotta love all these johnny-come-lately Vikings fans who jumped on board this year somehow thinking that the QB getting hit somehow constitutes “dirty play”. These people clearly haven’t watched much football over the years.
    And of course, there’s the the team itself taking over for the Ravens as the whiniest, excuse-making, sore losers in the NFL.
    And another year goes by with another layer of dust in that empty trophy case.

  27. Bob says: Feb 16, 2010 5:43 PM

    “Hell yah! Tell em’ Shank. Look for the Vikings to play Longest Yard style defense if they make that game happen. Plus no turnovers,which means a 21 point win for the Vikings.”

    And you’ll still be one Super Bowl victory behind the Saints.

  28. 40for58 says: Feb 16, 2010 5:43 PM

    I’m glad to read this. This is some real good news.I’m glad the Vikings players are being vocal about this. They should have taken action during the NFCCG though. Good read though and good news.

  29. vikingcole says: Feb 16, 2010 5:44 PM

    Well i just heard that drew brees is on the cover of madden11. Lets give that curse a little boost with a broken leg in the first quarter of the first game this season. the saint and brees deserve it. I hope we knock him out for atleast 2 full seasons.
    SKOL VIKINGS SKOL!

  30. NFL_Bad_Ass says: Feb 16, 2010 5:45 PM

    Saints only won that game by ‘luck’ and officals not calling obvious late hits to Favre. Viking had the saints number that game with over 200 more yards then saints and was the better team. Can’t wait till vikings play them again and show them who’s boss!

  31. TFBuckFutter says: Feb 16, 2010 5:45 PM

    Yeah, well….I’m sure some good old fashioned Week 7 justice will really make up for not making the Superbowl.

  32. Pervy Harvin says: Feb 16, 2010 5:46 PM

    ” I would have said something to our defense about it and it would have been damn chaos out there. ”
    Why should you have to say anything really? SB was on the line. Defense should have been making chaos all along. They did shut down the Saints offense big time but should have made a few more dirty hits,eye for an eye is fair.

  33. vikingcole says: Feb 16, 2010 5:46 PM

    Shainco is going to cut block and take out both knees on anyone he can touch in that game. CANT WAIT!

  34. jackers252 says: Feb 16, 2010 5:47 PM

    ” A damn shame the “better” team didn’t win.”
    More crying….
    They call turn-overs take-aways for a reason; they aren’t given, they are taken. The better team won, get over it.

  35. njoberg says: Feb 16, 2010 5:47 PM

    wonder how aint fans would react if brees
    was being hit like that….talk is cheap by
    the way not a vike fan

  36. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Feb 16, 2010 5:51 PM

    can’t go a day without the 4 to 5 daily Vikings posts

  37. nolanewbie says: Feb 16, 2010 5:52 PM

    I think it’s ridiculous for someone to say the Saints played “dirty”. To the best of my knowledge, the basics of the game is to stop the quarterback from making yardage. Duh!!! I watched the game like everyone else and will admit that Brett got hit and hit hard, but “dirty”? I don’t think so. The Saints simply outplayed the Vikings – Oddly no one seems to remember when the Vikings called themselves the “Purple People Eaters” and tauted how tough they were.
    Quit whining about how poor old Brett was manhandled. He’s 40 years old and needs to think about staying at home while he still has most of his faculties.

  38. stadanko says: Feb 16, 2010 5:53 PM

    1st question the Vikes are gonna ask players at the combine.
    “Lets say someone(gasp) tackles our QB. Are you able to make comments 2 to 3 weeks after the game saying you would have done something about it if you had seen it?”
    Zigi should invest in an in house optometrist because those bitches are blind.

  39. mike says: Feb 16, 2010 5:53 PM

    How dare the saints play the game! Didnt they know Brett Favre was the vikings qb? The Saints shoulda layed down like the whole vikings organization did for Favre.

  40. VT says: Feb 16, 2010 6:00 PM

    The Vikings are the better team?
    Oh, Really!
    I thought the better team was the one with the QB that threw 3 touchdowns with zero turnovers – not the team that fumbled 4 or 5 times AND threw critical interceptions at exactly the worst time.
    NOPE! The better team is the one that
    TAKES CARE OF THE BALL…..PERIOD!!!
    That’s why the Saints won – they were the better team.

  41. last starfighter says: Feb 16, 2010 6:02 PM

    Isn’t it funny that after the cowboys cried about the vikings running up the score the vikings whined about getting their butts kicked too hard?

  42. tredog95 says: Feb 16, 2010 6:02 PM

    to all viking fans,
    get over it! the only hit that was dirty was the one at the knees (and i’m still not sold on the tom brady rule). good job for shiancoe and edwards to let everyone know what they plan on doing next season when they play the SUPER BOWL CHAMPS!!! referees, please take note of shiancoe and edwards.

  43. Contra says: Feb 16, 2010 6:03 PM

    Keep these posts coming guys. It just strengthens the fact that everyone fears the Vikings next season. You NEVER see these posts coming in on a Lions or Buc’s thread…NEVER. Next season belongs to the Vikings.

  44. jgreen1570 says: Feb 16, 2010 6:05 PM

    “I wonder how aint fans would react if brees
    was being hit like that…”
    My guess is that they would (a) block, (b) run the ball, and (c), run a few screen passes, all options which were clearly available to the Vikes, who instead decided to let Favre throw 46 times, and in turn, got him killed. Thanks Chilly!
    Just keep crying that you were cheated, Vikes fans, because the refs did not overturn your QB’s interception.

  45. bluestree says: Feb 16, 2010 6:09 PM

    I agree with whoever said if you think the Saints were dirty, you haven’t watched much football. And running your mouth now makes you look like a chump, especially when you’re talking about a Champ. You’d have had a chance with that argument if the Saints went into the SB and laid an egg, but they didn’t. They kicked Ass! End of story. I do not remember ever, a team and a fanbase whining so much over a game they lost after committing five turnovers! They will be known forever as the Crykings!

    The fans were pissed about it, I’ll tell you that much.
    Then the DC comes out the next week and talks about taking out Manning.
    The Saints were the liberal media’s Barack Obama this year. That’s about all you need to know. All the libby New Orleans symphasizers were in Saints garb. Scripted as hell. They threw legends like Brady, Manning, Warner, and Favre iunder the bus to make their goody two shoes story on New Orleans.

    Must be hell to have to live the whole off-season in a delusional state NFL_Bad_Ass….good luck with that.

  50. The Upsetter says: Feb 16, 2010 6:21 PM

    Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
    Just more talk from the losing team.
    You don’t like seeing “your” QB get hit then block!
    The Saints pass rush was bringin it, a normal QB would have got sacked but Favre with his quick release and gutsy style was able to get the ball out of his hand. That’s just what Favre does.
    Don’t fool yourselves Vikings, Favre is the reason why you were in the NFC Championship. The rest of the team didn’t have the GUTS to hold on to the ball when it counted most.
    The Vikings and their fans need to face the fact they got beat. You sold out the future and coaxed Ol’ Favre out of retirement, put all your eggs into his basket and came up short. You Failed.
    Now its billboards begging the guy to come back. If he doesn’t come back the Vikings are soooo screwed and don’t they know it. They have no control of their own fate. Its pathetic.
    So Viking fans want to see a rematch, well guess what? So do Saint fans! The Saints will beat them down again! You know why? Because their BETTER! That’s why they’re the Champs!
    Deal

  51. Jimmy Smith and Bob Nelson are IDIOTS says: Feb 16, 2010 6:22 PM

    What a bunch of IDIOTS on this site. Shiancoe is clearly talking about the late hits and the Vikings should have done some of the same to the Saints.

    What an asinine comment. The NFL came out (after the game as usual) and said there should have been a flag on Favres first interception which would have given the Vikings the ball on about the Saints 30.
    As for putting some extra shots on Brees, that’s what this article was about. Hit him even if it was late as that is what the Saints were getting away with.
    On a side note I don’t remember a single holding penalty against the Saints offense in the NFCCG or SB against 2 very good defensive lines.

    Why didnt BRETT FAVRE say something to the defense?

  56. nps6724 says: Feb 16, 2010 6:31 PM

    “wonder how aint fans would react if brees
    was being hit like that”
    He has been, it’s just not made a national story because he’s not Favre, Manning, or Brady. And while it does suck, flags WERE thrown. The Saints were flagged twice for roughing the passer and only once were they not when Peiera said they should’ve been. But one of the flags they DID get was very questionable (when Hargrove “piledrove” Favre) and when Ray Edwards did the exact same “piledrive” to Brees, no flag was thrown.
    A big deal was made out of it because it’s Favre. A) He’s a legend who is always #1 on the media’s list; B) he’s a drama queen so every hit, no matter how hard or soft, was followed by his melodramatic acting, and C) he’s old.
    All the Viking fans keep acting like the Saints illegally hit Favre on every single down and were never called for any infraction.
    And besides Favre, Manning, and Brady, most QBs are hit much worse every game without a fury of flags flying. Brees rarely ever gets a roughing call even when he’s clubbed in the head or piledriven into the ground or hit late, etc. Yet Saints fans don’t bitch and moan every time this happens.

    I find it interesting that so many people are complaining that the Saints played dirty against Brett and were not called for it.
    Is there ANYONE who has followed NFL football for more than a few months that does not think that the NFL’s dream game would have been between Favre and Manning??? Come ON!!!

  59. slipkid says: Feb 16, 2010 6:45 PM

    3-34*
    Jeez what another bunch of vaginas. You also got beat. Seek therapy and deal with it. The better team won in the divisional round, conference championship, and super bowl. too bad they didnt cover in all 3…
    why didnt favre go cry at the defense? i have to give the old man credit cause it seems he didnt. unlike the previous week, the vikes d simply didnt take care of bidness. if they didnt take care of bidness, just how were they going to “get back at anyone” for real or perceived slights/hits…
    and maybe a game like that is one (good) reason he waffles.
    or maybe he was embarassed cause they kept putting their balls on the ground!

  60. Loqi says: Feb 16, 2010 6:47 PM

    “All the libby New Orleans symphasizers were in Saints garb. ”
    Wait, New Orleans fans were pulling for the Saints? Obvious conspiracy. Very astute observation.
    “Scripted as hell. They threw legends like Brady, Manning, Warner, and Favre iunder the bus to make their goody two shoes story on New Orleans.”
    Yep, that explains why New Orleans won the SB the year after Katrina, while it’s still fresh in everyone’s mind. This is also why the New York Giants met the New York Jets in the SB the year after 9/11, right?

  61. straightup says: Feb 16, 2010 6:48 PM

    Supposedly the Saints are cheap shot pieces of crap for late hits and roughing Favre up. Now that the Vikings want to do it, well it’s ok.
    For anyone who hopes someone will get hurt, karma is a bitch! You shouldn’t wish bad things on people.
    And as far as you who say the Vikings won because they had more yards, let it go it’s not fantasy football.

  62. nps6724 says: Feb 16, 2010 6:48 PM

    “What an asinine comment. The NFL came out (after the game as usual) and said there should have been a flag on Favres first interception which would have given the Vikings the ball on about the Saints 30.”
    There was a bogus roughing the passer call 4 plays prior that would’ve led to a Minnesota punt (it was a 3rd-and-4 incompletion) and decent field position for the Saints. The interception just righted a wrong from earlier in the drive. Funny how Minnesota fans never mention that bogus penalty they received.
    And if you don’t think it was bogus, then you Minny fans better call out the refs for not calling Ray Edwards for the EXACT SAME ACTION. But I’m betting you won’t do that.
    “As for putting some extra shots on Brees, that’s what this article was about. Hit him even if it was late as that is what the Saints were getting away with.”
    “Getting away with”? Penalties were called, thus nothing was “gotten away with”.
    “On a side note I don’t remember a single holding penalty against the Saints offense in the NFCCG or SB against 2 very good defensive lines. ”
    The Saints have an OL with 3 Pro Bowlers. That probably had something to do with it.
    On that note:
    Minnesota – 0 holding calls against their OL in 2 playoff games
    Indianapolis – 0 holding calls against their OL in 3 playoff games
    So…yeah.
    Anymore excuses, crybags?

  63. JimmySmith says: Feb 16, 2010 6:51 PM

    I would not believed it was possible but the Viking players are morphing toward becoming exactly like the Viking fans, all talk, excuse making and BS and to what end? Another choke job in a long list of choke jobs.
    Its one thing for the fans to cry about the refs, dispute the playcalling and hurl insults about the stupidity of Childress, its quite another for the players to be talking about how they would have done something different had they known about Favre getting hit.
    Can’t we assume that both Ray Edwards and Shiancoe were playing as hard as they possibly could on each and every play? Then how is the knowledge that Brent was getting his vigina bruised going to change anything? Talk about bitching, these guys are making themselves out to be even dumber than the Viking fan base and that a feat equal to the Vikings winning a Superbowl, in other words, impossible.

    Wow if they where all legit it is sure funny how fines where handed out and a apology to the vikes was issued by the guy in charge of the officiating. The saints fans now have one 5 playoff games in the history of the game and think there below sea level shit hole of a town has the greatest franchise ever. Funny how you all had bags on your head 5 years ago until the hurricane washed them off and now made you into super fans. The best thing that came out of the saints winning is now maybe we wont have to listen to the hurricane sob story any longer. Shit happens so deal with it and quit wanting a hand out.If all the people that complain on tv down there would get off of there dead beat asses and do something your city would be fixed.Spend the money on repairs not parades and beads.

  65. _ROCKSTAR_ says: Feb 16, 2010 6:53 PM

    You can say what you are going to do all you want but one fact is certain… Saints have a ring that you can’t take from them.

    Refs definitely looked the other way that game. The league wanted the saints to win the SB because nothing sells like the sob story of New Orleans. The worst offense by the refs was not missing all those late hits on Favre, it was that phantom pass INT call in OT that extended the Saints drive.

  67. footballrulz says: Feb 16, 2010 6:57 PM

    It doesn’t really matter who is blocking when Jared comes around the edge about 5 seconds late and blows out Brees’ ACL, MCL, and PCL. Hopefully the Vikes just have him watch tapes of McCray’s cheap, black, primate looking ass. Hopefully the league goes into a lockout and all of these overpaid blacks are working at Burger King.

    they’re still bitching about the saints game, …yet how funny was it when they ran the score up on the cowboys a week earlier so their drama queen QB could run up his stats,… so while they remain fixated on the beating the saints gave them, …i have a feeling the cowboys are going to want to do to them, what the saints did to them, beat the sh#t out of their QB.

    Shiancoe says there “might be a little extra out there” How about a Super Bowl banner hanging in the Super Dome?

  70. last starfighter says: Feb 16, 2010 7:03 PM

    The biggest problem with all this stupidity is the ridiculous argument that fvare getting hit alot made him throw a stupid interception and caused there to be 12 men in the huddle. Shiancoe, the vikings and their fans need to accept that the vikings literally threw the game away and blaming the Saints or the refs for the loss just makes them look like pathetic, sore losers. BE A MAN AND STFU ALREADY

  71. 56chevygirl says: Feb 16, 2010 7:05 PM

    Shank, maybe you should have tryed blocking someone or is that not in your skill box? LOL
    The Saints beat you fair and square AND went on to beat mighty Manning and are the SUPER BOWL CHAMPS!
    Quit crying Vikqueen fans, save it for next season when we kick you butts again…..

    You Viking fans need to realize that it doesn’t matter if the Vikings outplayed the Saints, the Vikings were the ones that coughed up 5 turnovers. No team can win a game when they have that many turnovers.
    Your team lost. Too bad. Stop your crying and get the hell over it.

Lets face it, Brett is retiring, as well as Pat too damn fat Williams, Chester the molester is gone, we took care of Cedric–>and Winfield is the most overrated player in the league!! Not worried what so ever. Vikes will be lucky to make the playoffs next year, which saddens me—-we would love to knock your QB(If you even get one) on his ass for two games next year!

    “Wow if they where all legit it is sure funny how fines where handed out and a apology to the vikes was issued by the guy in charge of the officiating.”
    The fines were for the penalties and the one missed call, which the apology was for. The refs missed numerous calls on the Vikings as well, but you whiny bitches won’t ever cop to THOSE missed calls.
    “Shit happens so deal with it and quit wanting a hand out”
    Ironic that this comes from a Viking fan.
    “The league wanted the saints to win the SB because nothing sells like the sob story of New Orleans.”
    Yeah, that’s why the Saints received literally ZERO coverage leading up the NFCC and the Super Bowl. The ENTIRE lead-up to both games centered on Favre and Manning. And this was on NFLN. If they truly wanted the Saints to win, they would’ve built them up far more.
    “it will be a great site to see brees trying to pull his foot out of his ass. then you can put your bags back on your heads and enjoy another 30 years of a shity team”
    And we’ll still have 1 more Super Bowl win than the Vikings.

  82. Moose says: Feb 16, 2010 7:39 PM

    What a bunch of blowhards ! Favre got smacked around because he is too slow to avoid contact. Add that pourous thing you call an offensive line and you’re lucky your running backs didn’t get smacked around. They couldn’t because they were too busy running after their fumbles.

  83. GBP says: Feb 16, 2010 7:40 PM

    Pervy. vikingcole, NFL bad ass, Contra – will you PLEASE, for the love of everything that is holy, stop whining about losing, the cheap shots, the “refs were against us” complaints. You guys make all Vikings fans sound like they are all idiots (which they may be). Are all of you guys dating Favre and his “old balls”? Geeezzzz! ErinRodgers – I don’t even know what to say about your racist, narrow-minded, ignorant comments. You are in a class by yourself. You take being a stupid, dillusional Vikings fan to a new level. Well done.

  84. Beer Cheese Soup says: Feb 16, 2010 7:44 PM

    Listen to the Viking fans, still crying and claiming they were the better team even despite putting the ball on the ground five times.
    Every season in your franchise’s history has ended in disappointment. when are you going to get used to it? We lost in playoff overtime too, but you don’t see us getting together and crying a 10,001th lake.
    You guys need to get it together. April is right around the corner, and you need to be ready to crown yourselves champions again. You can’t do that if you’re still crying about how your last “championship” worked out.

  92. mikemcsaint says: Feb 16, 2010 8:13 PM

    How many Viking fans will spend all of the off season whining about their team losing to the Saints and swearing revenge for next season? What a sad bunch! We knocked Warner around too but the Cardinal fans must be too classy to moan like you bunch of sissys. And some of you think the league wanted the Saints in. Yeah, the Saints instead of a Manning-Favre Superbowl, theres some real logic. If the league wanted the Saints to win why didn’t they make it happen in 06, the first year after Katrina? But I wouldn’t expect Viking fans to use much logic, it would invalidate all of their arguments. We’ll see you in the Dome before your next beat down.

I remember the Vikings saying that Dallas should have stopped them, well maybe you should listen to your own advice. And what about that pussy QB of yalls throwing a shot at someones knees himself.

    Dids you actually watch the game, or are you taking all of these Viking losers word for it. On every fumble, except the fumbled handoff, A Saint’s player knocked the ball loose. The Vikings were lucky and recovered two out of five. Granted the Vikings offense outgained the Saint’s Offense by 200 yards; but we did have something like 220 yards on returns. If we recover a fumble on your 10 yard line or return a kick to your twenty yard line, of course your team will have more yardage than mine. We scored more points than you did. Bring it on. Come back to our house, and see if you can knock off the Superbowl champs. I don’t think you can. Have you placed that trophy in your trophy case, OOhhhhhhh, that’s right they don’t give one to the best team that didn’t MAKE it to the Superbowl, much less win it!!

I can’t wait for next year even more, if that is possible. It’s funny how this website is the ONLY one I have been on where the ViQueen fans are still crying about their teams latest choke job. You would think they would be used to it by now.

    How can you people honestly say that some of those hits weren’t dirty? The Saints were taking obvious shots at Favre’s knees and even the head of officiating later said that there should have been at least one more penalty called… which would have kept a drive alive for the Vikings. Yes the Saints won and there is no use dwelling on it for us Vikes fans but for everyone to sit here and say that there were no dirty hits is a load of garbage.

    I’d remind all the Viqueens and their putrid vagina fan base of what Brett Favre did to Eugene Wilson. That crackback block was illegal. What did Shianco say then? Oh, he said:
    “I liked it,” tight end Visanthe Shiancoe said. “Hey, it’s man eat man out here. You better keep your eyes on a swivel. He saw Brett out there and said, ‘Ah, Brett ain’t going to do anything.’”

    I hope Brett can come back next year and play. I wouldn’t blame him if he didn’t. The man is class all around and no one can argue differently. It is hard to make a decision to retire when one loves the game as much as he does. He’s a kid at heart but his body isn’t. As for the Saints… savor the win. Like you will do it again. And they can’t say that Reggie did anything… boy is he a waste of money.
    I hope the Vikings knocks the “Brees” out of Drew next year. Then it could be somewhat called even.

  125. nuclearscuba says: Feb 16, 2010 10:08 PM

    Hard to believe that the Viking defense could have played better. They held the Saints offense to only 257 yards while they piled up 475 yards of their own offense. The difference in the game was not the Saints’ hits on Farve. Even with those hits, he picked them apart for over 300 yards. The difference was the 5 turnovers. Take away those (or even just 2 of those), and the Vikings blow out the Saints.
    The Saints deserve congrats for winning the Super Bowl, but in the NFC Championship, they got their butts kicked up and down the field. Unfortunately for the Vikings, the scoreboard is all that matters. The Vikings beat themselves.

    More shoulda, woulda, coulda. Does anyone on the team watch the game? Do they talk to each other on the field? Shiancoe is in charge of firing up the defense? Starting to make more and more sense why they really lost that game.
    It’s been almost a month, stop being pussies and bitching about how you lost, man up and start getting ready for next year.

    what about the Reggie Bush TD right in front of the line judge, that signaled no TD, causing the Saints to use a challage flag
    what about Brees getting slapped in the head by a linebacker….no flag
    what about Brees getting slammed by Edwards, just like Hargrove did farve….no flag for the saints though
    what about jared Allen tugging Brees by the leg while he was on the ground….no flag
    what about the offensive pass interfernce call that wasnt called when Sidney Rice tugged Greer keeping him from getting a pic
    so vikes fans lets talk about those for a while
    the Saints beat the vikes and the ref’s….and went on to win the Super Bowl

That was physical pain inflicting football. And besides Brent Favre is a tough guy remember? I laugh at you viking fans and i get a kick out of Florio reminding all u of how bad you really do suck. You guys always have bitchy excuses every year. Congrats to the Saints and all theyre fans! You earned it!

    I love these stories, they illustrate 1) why the vikes won’t win the games that matter and 2) that many of their fans are as pathetic as the losers they cheer for.
    Get the sand out of your vaginas and the bloomers out of your ass crack, ladies, and try actually playing football for a change.

    Hit man seems like a great name for McCray. 1.5 sacks all year, 12 tackles. Seems like the days of old–put a terrible, disposable player out there to take some shots. I watched my QB Warner get wracked in the open field, away from the play…but hard to b#%ch when you get beat by 35+. Someone on the Minn sidelines needed to put 2 and 2 together and realize it was McCray taking the cheap shots. The worst missed call in all 3 games was the high/low hit on Favre. 5 turnovers are hard to overcome Minnie fans, even though you won on both sides of the line, the Saints won the only thing that counts. Like many others who quietly cheered for the Saints pre-playoffs, I was embarassed by the way Williams decided to cover for a weak defense. ****** A word to the wise for the Vikings, don’t telegraph your shots. The retaliation usually gets the fine! To the Saints, as champs you are marked men anyway, but after the Williams and McCray antics, better be prepped for some crackbacks and late hits. With your mentality, I would assume you would send
    McCray after Brees’ shoulder.

    How can you people honestly say that some of those hits weren’t dirty? The Saints were taking obvious shots at Favre’s knees and even the head of officiating later said that there should have been at least one more penalty called… which would have kept a drive alive for the Vikings. Yes the Saints won and there is no use dwelling on it for us Vikes fans but for everyone to sit here and say that there were no dirty hits is a load of garbage.
    ——————
    What you seem to be forgetting is that there were 2 helmet to helmet hits on Brees that weren’t called and a sack where he was picked up and driven into the ground EXACTLY the same way that Favre was, but Favre got the call, Brees didn’t. Sure the one hit was missed on Favre with the high low, but lets not get carried away. There were 3 that the Vikings defense got away with, so it more than balances things out. Oh and you might want to worry more about BrINT Favre and his stupid decision making or Peterson and his fumble fingers.

    Im not saying the Vikes lost the game because of the calls but if you think the aints where not hitting Favre late on purpose to try to knock him out of the game you are dumb or did not watch the game. This article is because of the cheap shots that where made by the saints . The vikes lost because they chocked again and a real vikes fan can admit that.

    You don’t take revenge of a NFC playoff loss in a regular season unless its win or go home game for Saints..nope doesn’t work that way..plus all teams give those remember hits to QBs to rattle them particularly in playoffs..something Shiancoe should have known in first place..What else he doesn’t know..?

    Deacon Jones said the Saints played a masterful game. I’ll take the word of a legend over a bunch of whining losers any day.
    The Vikes whipped the Saints? How, exactly? Yards? Oh, nice. Manning threw for around 330 yards too. Still lost.
    The Saints didn’t need to rack up a ton of yards because they mostly had a short field to work with after another takeaway and scored in just a few plays. They had a few three and outs, yeah, but they also played more conservatively than usual because they didn’t want to turn the ball over. They played the game with a defensive/ground control mindset. In other words, they played smart for the game they knew would be a tough one.
    They would pin the Vikes deep in their own territory, they’d get a decent drive going and then WHAM another turn over.
    Get over it, the better team hoisted the Lombardi Trophy. You may say flash in the pan, but at least we have a Super Bowl win to our resume. WHO DAT!

    People. This is ridiculous. The Vikes blew the Saints game in Chicago, when they lost home field. Then they blew it again by putting the ball on the ground five times. Then they lost it again when they had 12 guys in the huddle.
    Blame the refs? Blame the Saints for late hits? Garbage. Look in the mirror. Blame your team. That’s what most Vikings fans have done by now. You should too. Comment boards bring out the worst (worst habits, worst fans).
    Saints won. They deserve it. Congratulations.

  146. SF Saints Fan says: Feb 17, 2010 12:52 AM

    Vikings fans,…… there is no crying in football.
    Get over it. There were at most two penalties that could have been called on the Saints that were not called and at least two penalties that could have been called on the Vikings that were not called. It all evens out.
    The difference in the hits taken by the two quarterbacks (Brees was hit, illegally at least twice and the hits were not called) is very simple. Favre is a 40 year old man playing a game against much younger and more agile players. He is a tough guy and has been his entire career. On the plays where he was his, he hung in the pocket and waited as long as possible to throw the ball knowing he was going to get creamed. Kudos to him for doing that, but he knew what was coming. He stood in there and took it like a man, not like you whiner fans…….
    Brees, on the other hand, was usually able to get the ball off quicker and avoided most hits. Brees was hit once in the head by a blatantly illegal head slap that was not called and was pile driven into the ground, as Favre was, but the penalty was not called on the Vikings as it was called on the Saints.
    And stop whining that your Vikings totally outplayed the Saints. The Saints defense was predicated on forcing the turnover all year. Give up yards, but force the turnover. That is what they did against the Vikings and that is what they did all year. HELLO, did any of you imbeciles see Porter’s pick six in the Super Bowl? How about that pick of Favre……”this is not Detroit man, this is the Super Bowl.” That is the Saints defense in a nutshell.
    And special teams help win big games. Look at the return yards in the NFC Championship Game and how about our FG kicker. Pressure kick in OT against the Vikings and a Super Bowl record 3 FG’s over 40 yards in the Super Bowl.
    Plain and simple, the best team in professional football won the Super Bowl. Facts suck sometimes, deal with it.
    The Vikings had a very good team last year, just not good enough. Good luck next year and show some class………

  147. vtopa says: Feb 17, 2010 12:54 AM

    People need to grow up and stop with the personal attacks. Honestly, everyone loves their team for one reason or another. A trophy might make your team statistically better but it does not make you as a fan better. You would have whined too. Just as I had to listen to Packer fans whine about about the hit on Rogers in OT against Arizona.

  150. NFL_Bad_Ass says: Feb 17, 2010 1:00 AM

    Saints only won that game by ‘luck’ and officals not calling obvious late hits to Favre. Viking had the saints number that game with over 200 more yards then saints and was the better team. Can’t wait till vikings play them again and show them who’s boss!

  152. vikesfan4life says: Feb 17, 2010 1:58 AM

    Once again Favre’s pick did not cost the Vikings the game. The 6 fumbles prior to that… 3 of which were lost… was the story of that game. The pick was huge there is no debating that but it NEVER should have gotten to that point. But like I said in my previous post… the Saints won… good for them. There is no use in dwelling on it. We can cry and moan all we want but it’s not going to change anything.
    Do I think the better team won? Absolutely not. But you can’t turn the ball over 5 times and expect to win… yet even with all those turnovers the Vikes still had a shot. The Saints should have put that game away and never needed OT.

  153. bgrayber says: Feb 17, 2010 2:13 AM

    One less turn over and it’s “Aints lose to Vikings” Or if the high/low hit was called it’s all over.
    Face the fact of how the game played out. Vikes lost it because of they couldn’t hold onto the ball.
    If one of the Aints players had not held onto a turnover this article would be how the Aints are a team destioned to lose.
    And F the “who dat crap” thats the most annoying thing in the world. “who dat?” is even more so than the “dog pound” in Cleveland.

Keep em coming florio because I love reading about my vikes! These d-bag haters are just pissed that their teams never get commented on because there is no one on their teams worth writing about.

    If you think this is true can you explain the dozens of comments from queens fans on posts regarding the Packers third string running backs? The vikings posts get many comments because everyone is so darn sick of all the arrogance and whining we have heard from minni all year. Of course people hate the vikings and want to spout off about it, they have good reason to.

  158. ChuckForeman44 says: Feb 17, 2010 7:09 AM

    Dont you guys realize that Florio only posts this crap because it gets his website a million hits??
    I am Vikings fan since 1970…..It has been 40 years of disappointment, but Im stuck with them now. Ive always been a Favre fan since he was traded to GB. I have fantasy football to thank for that…..BUT….we lost the NFC Championship. Not because the Saints beat the hell out Favre, but because we turned the ball over 5 times including two in the redzone. Period.
    Ray Edwards needs to STFU. Visante Shiancoe needs to STFU. Do your talking on the field. They both say they didnt know Favre was being pounded like an inmates wanker. Im not sure how they didnt know. All of America could see it. Maybe Favre never said anything in the huddle?
    The way they were pounding him, youd have thought he’d be spitting up blood at the very least. Who knows. Seems dumb to get motivated AFTER the fact when going to the SB shouldve been motivation enough.
    Congrats to the Saints fans. You have a Superbowl trophy. You guys, of all people, should know whats its like to be a Vikings fan. The Saints dont exactly have a long history of winning playoff games. Enjoy the hell out of it. The city has been through a lot. But dont turn into Steeler fans.

  159. AutumnWind999 says: Feb 17, 2010 7:51 AM

    What illegal hits?
    As I recall there was one bogus roughing the passer penalty followed by one play that should’ve been called roughing under the brand-new Brady rule. That’s it. The rest of the plays were good, hard football hits. WTF is everyone talking about?
    Shiancoe is a clown. His team lost. Did the hits on Favre have something to do with that? Absolutely. Were all but one of those hits legal? Absolutely. Get over it.

  160. Emoney says: Feb 17, 2010 8:33 AM

    Its funny that these idiots make these “claims” after the fact. Just remember, if Brees somehow gets injured during that game next year, expect Saints players to get revenge before that game ends. It could get ugly. You want to hurt their best player? Expect the same to be done to your purple jesus fumbler. Or maybe a fat lineman will rollover on the side of Jared Allens knee by “accident”.

  161. Big BrEasy says: Feb 17, 2010 8:37 AM

  162. FriarBob says: Feb 17, 2010 8:55 AM

    MrRealcall blathers “Hit man seems like a great name for McCray. 1.5 sacks all year, 12 tackles.”
    You know, you’d look like less of an idiot if you looked up the number of games he started. You can find it very easily on NFL.com if you bother to look. Tell you what, I’ll save you the trouble. The number was zero. He was injured most of the year with a bad back. Though he was active for every game, most of the time he played only a limited number of snaps.
    As for the post in general, if this moron actually thinks telegraphing his intentions 7 months in advance is a good idea, he’s dumber than a rock.

    “Once again Favre’s pick did not cost the Vikings the game.”
    Yes it did. Of course it should never have gotten to that point but fact is it DID get to that point and BertFarve did as BertFarve does and threw up the retarded duck. All he had to do was tuck the ball in and fall down but he tried to force it into coverage. Longwell was 100% from 50+ in ’09. With the game on the line, I’d rather trust his foot from 55 yards than BertFarve’s arm from any distance. Instead you got:
    (:19) 4-B.Favre pass deep middle intended for 18-S.Rice INTERCEPTED by 22-T.Porter at NO 22. 22-T.Porter to NO 48 for 26 yards (65-J.Sullivan).
    Which is eerily similar to:
    (4:59) (No Huddle) 4-B.Favre pass short left intended for 83-C.Stuckey INTERCEPTED by 21-A.Goodman at MIA 25. 21-A.Goodman to MIA 28 for 3 yards (87-L.Coles).
    and
    (14:13) 4-B.Favre pass short right intended for 80-D.Driver INTERCEPTED by 23-C.Webster at GB 43. 23-C.Webster to GB 34 for 9 yards (80-D.Driver).

    Its one thing for the fans to cry about the refs, dispute the playcalling and hurl insults about the stupidity of Childress, its quite another for the players to be talking about how they would have done something different had they known about Favre getting hit.
    Can’t we assume that both Ray Edwards and Shiancoe were playing as hard as they possibly could on each and every play? Then how is the knowledge that Brent was getting his vigina bruised going to change anything? Talk about bitching, these guys are making themselves out to be even dumber than the Viking fan base and that a feat equal to the Vikings winning a Superbowl, in other words, impossible

    I still think its funny when people say all the hits where legal except one . Did they fine him because he played to nice? And I also think to other players where fined during the game because of cheap hits. Did any Vikes get fined because of the late hits you talk about?
    Who talks about the packs 3rd string rb ? You should work on getting a first string back to talk about before you worry about your third. And yes i would take mr fumble over Grant any day.
    Not all vikes fans are idiots like the ones on this site .If you want to judge everyone by the posts on this site there is not a team in the nfl that have fans that are not annoying ,whinny,loud mouth ,rude excuse makers look at your own fans posts also.

  169. Rip says: Feb 17, 2010 10:19 AM

    For all you whiners that actually think the Vikes were a better team, look at it this way.
    The Saints played poorly 4 times, they lost two of those games by one score each, and both of them came down to the last offensive possession by the Saints. They won the other two games, the last one being against the Vikings.
    The Vikings, on the other hand, played poorly 5 times, and lost all 5. That anyone can try to claim that they were a better team after losing to da Bears and Carolina when it actually mattered, then getting beat by the team you’re comparing them to is quite ridiculous.

    One thing seems obvious……
    THEY’RE LYING!
    They saw The Saints whoop Favre and they were helpless to do anything about it because they themselves were getting beat.
    Shouldn’t Viking fans be focusing on getting more billboards up begging Favre for one more year? That whole, “will he/ won’t he” thing is you’re problem now.

    I only “tear ” apart statements made as factual. Like 6 wins tops!! If you would say it is of my opinion……then its opinion and a proper statement from a 2 percenter like I am as well.

    Some people on these boards lack reading comprehension skills.
    In not so many words, Ray Edwards is saying that the Saints intentionally took illlegal shots on Favre to injur or impede him. They went helmet to helmet, forearm to jaw, and straight up ankle shot from behind on several instances in the game when Favre did not have the ball in his hands. That was their gameplan. They were willing to take some 15 yard penalties if it meant a chance to throw Favre off his game or out of the game.
    So Edwards is saying the Vikes defense may intentionally take helmet to helmet hits, high/low’s, late hits, and forearm to the jaw hits on Brees when the Vikes play them to pay them back.
    The way I see it the Saints didn’t do anything wrong. They decided to sacrifice a few personal fouls with the goal of hurting or getting in the head of the opposing QB. The real problem in the game was that the refs didn’t call the illegal hits. They called one personal foul out of 12 hits. The first interception Favre threw he was hit below the knees and hit high from the other side. That was the one the refs admitted to missing. The other was after a handoff the defensive player actually took his forearm and drilled Favre under the helmet. He tried to draw a foul to trade for a concussion and a flag wasn’t even thrown.
    Bottom line is the Saints got lucky in a dozen ways during that game and getting away with illegal hits was one of them. Given the chance, the Vikings players will throw illegal hits on Brees when the time comes. That is what he is saying.

    No, you state it that way so no one can “prove you wrong”.
    I guess this all goes back to when you said that “Favre would never take a regular season snap with the Vikes, Never.”
    You din’t like that feeling, so now you go out of your way to qualify what you say.
    Way to stand behind what you think!!!

    Ray Edwards and Shiancoe are about as believable as Claude Raines in Casablanca:

What happened to this year? we had to listen to was how the SB was guaranteed……your organization and fans are the laughing stock of the NFL.

    Also, a player saying he wants revenge for getting beat in the NFCG?
    OMG THAT’S SO SHOCKING WHAT A BABY.
    You people are idiots. I wonder what you’d all say if Darelle Revis said he wanted revenge on the Colts.

    you won the division wow great job must make you feel real good about right now considering another year has gone by and you losers have no SB once again way to go on a great REGULAR season

    Vikings are a solid franchise. Not spectacular. But totally solid. Solid at selling out games, though not the best. 6th overall franchise winning percentage of all 32 teams. Solid, not spectacular. Won more games in the last 40 seasons than any team in our division. Again, solid but not spectacular. The zero super bowl thing is the only part we have to be sad about but I’d rather have prolonged success than be a team with a super bowl ring that sucks 90% of the time.
    We know we have it pretty decent. The hate you guys spew on these threads has so much more to do with your own insecurities than our shortcomings. It is comical reading your pathetic attempts at insults. Especially given the context, what with us thoroughly dominating you two years straight and having a fantastic season with Favre at the helm.
    You guys are insecure. You went a decade without a div title before Favre came and you have a nice start on going another decade after he left.
    And we get to sit back and read your pathetic insults and just laugh. If we were the Rams, Lions, or Raiders yeah the crap you spew would be spot on. But then again, if we weren’t dominating you there would be no need to spam our boards with the drivel.

    Sando,
    I disagree with your earlier post and agree with your later post.
    The Saints intended to hit Favre to make him pay for holding the ball; that is not say that their game plan was to hit him illegally. A penalty was called after Favre handed the ball off and continued with bootleg action – bad call resulting in a first down. On the high/low that was not called, McCray was blocked into Favre – good no call. A penalty was called on a ticky tack “head slap” that negated a D. Sharper interception – a bad call that took a possession from the Saints. A penalty was not called when Ray Edwards lifted Brees and drove him into the ground etc. My point is that just because there were bad calls for/against both teams does not mean that the Saints game plan was nefarious.
    Regarding your more recent post, I have been going to sporting events for too long to allow my enjoyment to hinge on winning and losing. Don’t get me wrong; I want the Saints to win badly. However, I enjoyed the games last year, when we missed the playoffs, just to get to see Brees, Thomas, Bush, Colston and Henderson play football. I have 8 Saints season tickets and 2 for the Hornets. I go to Hornets games to see Chris Paul play (he’s injured right now). My dad took me to watch Archie Manning and Pete Maravich play. They never won but I’m glad I went.
    Think about it. If my team always won, it wouldn’t be much fun. The suspense makes it fun.
    That being said, the people here love the Saints. They were bad for a long time and we stuck with them. The history made the Super Bowl run that much sweeter. We scheduled (and paid for) a massive parade win or lose. Eleven fans met the Colts at the airport. That’s sad.
    Anyone on this board who is a real NFL fan should come to New Orleans sometime to watch a game.

  188. SonOfNOLA says: Feb 18, 2010 12:18 AM

    What are you Viking fans gaining from complaining about the loss? NOTHING. At the end of the day, the win/loss column is the only that matters. Had the outcome been different and if we were saying how much the Vikings’ D were playing dirty towards Brees, you all would be saying “you loss”! suck it up and get over it” A true sport doesn’t whine and bitch and constantly make excuses about why they didn’t win. You damn sure won’t get any RESPECT for it. We’ll see what you all are saying if either Favre and/or the Williams’ don’t play during Week 1. (“We didn’t win because they weren’t playing!”) STFU

  189. AlphaBean says: Feb 18, 2010 1:46 PM

    It’s amazing how many Saints fans came out of the woodwork the last few weeks. Where were they during the season? At least the Vikings have been actively participating in PFT all season. Because we’re passionate. So can you blame us for being this upset? Had the Saints lost this game, none of you would have signed up. You would have gone back to your lives, because you’ve never had any expectations for your team. Good luck… you’ve won the big one. From now on, you will have to suffer the same heartbreak as other teams’ fans. You have outed yourselves; you can’t hide behind the paper bag ever again!
    But to the Vikings fans… those hits were late, and the game was ours to lose – but lose we did. History is written by the victors. Like Belicheck said about Spygate, everyone is trying to gain an advantage. The Saints found theirs in Late Hits, and it worked. Blame the Vikings for not doing the same or more. It did piss me off that the Saints didn’t win cleanly… but it should never have gotten to that point. I’m finally beginning to accept that fact.
    What I am most afraid of for my fellow Vikings fans is life after Favre. The team and the fans finally got what they wanted in Favre, and we will have to go on without him. I don’t think we are prepared for that. We could bring in Peyton Manning, and fans would be lamenting Favre. I’m prepared… you all should be too!

    Dear Vikings fans and players,
    You cannot change the past, so you must focus on the present and the future. The game has long been over and the Super Bowl Champion has been decided and it is the New Orleans Saints. There is no asterisk by their win, no IOU. The first time the Saints reached the NFC Championship game back in 2006 they too turned the ball over too many times. They succumbed to bad officiating, questionable play calling and performed badly in a hostile environment. So please understand that there will be no remorse or lessening feeling of accomplishment from the team or it’s fans about your situation.
    Football isn’t a game that is determined by who gains the most yards or who has the better players, it is determined by who plays the better game inside regulation. In the NFC Championship game the Saints simply played better, smarter and tougher. If the Saints would’ve choked and laid an egg in the Super Bowl then you’d have more to talk about but the fact that they convincingly beat the Colts (a team who was heavily favored) should put to rest any complaints that you were the better team.
    By all means you should give the Saints your best shot next season when you face them, everyone else will, and you may win. However, even a win will not replace the opportunity that was squandered by Favre, Peterson, Harvin, and Berrian. You should instead redirect your frustration to the players who handled the ball so recklessly for your team and your city.
    Now comes the season of uncertainty as you have committed yourself to a quarterback who cannot even commit to playing another season. Should he decide to return for another year, he will no doubt “put a little something extra” into the game against the Saints, after all it was the team that he pulled for as a young boy which he was defeated by in the most heartbreaking manner.
    Favre was only a footstep however to making the name “Tracy Porter” forever etched into so many people’s minds as a QB legend slayer. True it may have been a bad decision on Favre and Manning’s part to throw those ill advised passes however it was still up to Porter to make the catch and subsequent Super Bowl pick 6.
    The saints vikings game should be one of the highest rated NFL games next season, that is if Favre decides it’s worth another go, otherwise, good luck with Tavaris.

  191. SonOfNOLA says: Feb 18, 2010 6:22 PM

    I only signed up on here to demise the bashing and trash talking you Vikings fans are doing towards the WORLD CHAMP Saints because y’all don’t have anything to show for it. Hoping and wishing for Manning to come in and save your franchise again is just as worst as begging Favre to come back. If y’all had a good QB coach or Offensive Coordinator to develop young QB’s, then maybe Tarvaris Jackson or Rosenfels could’ve been sensational with the little weapons y’all have in Sidney Rice (Product of Favre) and Percey Harvin.

    I’m starting to think that the Vikings are the most hated team in the league. They play a great season, lose to another great time and didn’t make any excuses. Visante playfully suggests that the Vikings might exact a little revenge hopefully making another great rivalry in the NFC and scores of morons lose their minds, take what he said out of context and demonstrate their naked hatred of the Vikes. The Vikings are the team of the social elite, don’t hate us because we are beautiful.

  193. ben6969 says: Feb 18, 2010 11:46 PM

    First, next year the sorry ass Vikings will not come close to the playoffs, they will still have that shitty O-Line, and Favre may retire leaving the keys to either Tavaris or Sage. Second what about the weak calls they got on their second TD drive, nobody seems to remember that drive. Third, how can you expect to win when you had 5 turnovers, it just dont happen in the NFL. Finally, will all Viking players still play and act like little bitches when they’re playing in L.A. in 2012?

    I dont have a problem with this at all. If the Vikings were aware of the “remember hits” then yes they would have retailiated in the game. Would of been fun to watch…Not a Vikings or Saints fan but I do look foward to this game and hope its Opening Game…

  196. mikethetiger says: Feb 24, 2010 12:44 AM

    keep talking, you bum! next time it won’t even be close. The Vikings will get a proper Viking Funeral! I’ve seen worse hits. favre and his teammates come off like WWE performers and now they’re all talking shit AFTER they lost..blah blah f’ing blah!
