The boys came through last week with an emotional victory over the Packers. It really doesn’t matter how the task is managed against Green Bay as long as the job gets done.
Unfortunately I’m anticipating a little bit of a hangover as the team heads out west to San Francisco to play the 49ers on Sunday.
San Fran is hot, and finally healthy.
This is a shitty spot for Minnesota. I’ve had a bad feeling in my stomach all week about this game.
But then yesterday I was driving around and I heard Phil Simms tell Christopher “Madd Dogg” Russo he’s picking the 49ers and he wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a blowout…
Suddenly I’m feeling a lot better about the Vikings chances.
If history has taught us anything, it’s that Phil Simms is an idiot.
Or, as my old man says, ‘He’s a waste of a chair at CBS.’
I’ll take the Vikings to win this week in another close one.
As for the rest of the league’s games, don’t over think it this week…
The Chargers (-2.5 over Denver) and Bucs (-3 over Indy) are sitting right there in plain sight for ya. Jump on them.
