Brett Favre was surprisingly upbeat at Wednesday’s press conference, but wouldn’t say the Vikings season has hit bottom because “it can always get worse.”
A loss to the Cardinals Sunday at the Metrodome would qualify as much worse.
Arizona is scuffling at 3-4, but they look worse than their record because they haven’t been able to stick with one quarterback for the better part of the season. Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt announced Wednesday he’s making another switch with his starting job: Derek Anderson will get the call against the Vikings.
I watched the Cardinals-Bucs game Tuesday night and was surprised that Max Hall’s performance wasn’t all bad. His two pick sixes were worth benching him for, although Beanie Wells’ lack of pass protection basically caused one of them.
Derek Anderson was predictably inconsistent. He helped lead a big comeback, but threw a mind-numbing interception to end the game . . . just after almost throwing a mind-numbing interception to end the game.
No win is automatic for the Vikings these days. But if they lose at home to Arizona, they just don’t have the right stuff to recover this year.
