Brett Favre and the purple gang stayed in the headlines early this season as well, flying out of the gate 12-1, Including a last second, made-for-Disney-movie-type bomb from Favre to receiver Sidney Rice to beat the 49ers in Week Three.
With Favre remarkably enjoying the best year of his illustrious career, a great running game, and strong defense, the Vikes stayed atop the power rankings.
But along came December, where they have dropped three of four games when they could have gained on the Saints.
After a career low in interceptions, Favre came back down to earth, tossing four in two consecutive losses.
Coach Childress and his QB aren’t seeing eye-to-eye on audibles; their sideline arguing is not a good sign, no matter how they both downplay it to the media.
After missing training camp, it would have made sense for them to sideline the 40 year old until the postseason. But he would never go for that.
Peterson is a beast indeed, but he puts the ball on the turf entirely too much. He and Favre both lost fumbles in their loss to the Bears last Monday night.
Rookie Percy Harvin could be a factor in the special teams department.
This looks like another team that hit their stride too soon, and is looking very beatable at the wrong time.
