Favre and the Vikings Really to Come Out with More Fight?

Latest excuses leave Viking Fans Unimpressed

Excuse me for finding a recent associated press article with the above title a tad bit irritating. Brad Childress and several other players are vowing to come out and make a “Real” effort this week-end against the Giants.

Excuse me ??!!?? “A real effort “ !!! That’s awesome ! No really, I’m seriously impressed ! Considering the average cost for an Dad to take his son/daughter to a game ( in REAL dollars, not in football player dollars ).

In these economic times, the team continues to find itself inequitably supported by a customer base that worships their every meager effort, so excuse me while I cherish the promise of a “Real Effort !”

It is about time ! Now that their fate rests in the Cowboys hands after squandering three of the last four games by giving their mediocre at best…. Now, and only now we are suppose to get excited about comments such as these !

The whole thing wreaks of desperation. Not desperation of their play-off situation, but desperation of how to “sell” the whole lazy, unprepared and inglorious fiasco that has been the last four games.

You can bet that the rest of the NFC is breathing a bit easier then they did before when this team was actually feared. This was a team even the mighty Saints or Colts didn’t want to see on their play-off horizon..

Just a month ago, there was actual hope that the Vikings had a real chance to win it all. Now, the team is trying to get us to buy into the “now were going to actually try” credo so often uttered by losers.

Great teams don’t take weeks off ! Great teams also don’t attempt to make excuses for the inexcusable !!! I am profoundly disappointed with this team and it’s coaching staff ! This is NOT A SUPER BOWL TEAM !!!! This is NOT A TEAM WITH SUPERIOR LEADERSHIP ! This is a LAZY group of prima-donnas who simply care much more for the accolades, personal appearances and pay checks then the actual pride of earning them.
Great Players don’t collect millions of dollars while they mail it in week after week. Merry Christmas Viking fans……..Happy New Year to all the faithful who bleed purple and gold only to find that they have left us high and dry again !!!

“Yo Adrian “ Try holding on to the ball !

Hey McKennie, try moving your feet and actually making contact before you simply “Ole” with your wondrous matadors cape while the bull runs right past you on his way to your quarterback………Bah !!

Hey Kluie……Try using the middle of your foot to contact the ball instead of just the outside edge… Humbug ! For crying out loud, that’s all you do, man ! Please do it well !!!!
I wonder what my boss would say if I decided to simply go through the motions at my real job ! I couldn’t get away with it, you know why ? Because there are thousands of people out of work right now, who would love to replace me. I actually have to try every day, just like the great majority of the people reading this article right now.

How do you think it makes them feel to know that “This week you are actually going to try ??!!!………Hallaleuyah !! May all the Bald sprout Hair !!!

However, that said……..this team is miraculously only a win and an Eagle loss in Big D from being back in the cat bird seat. Unfortunately, this team has squandered a great opportunity that ( barring the former ) leaves them with little more then a slim to none chance of winning it all.

But Slim has one foot out the door as it looks toward Sunday when the Vikings will “ Really give us an honest effort”
