I hope tonight's game means something for you, as my fantasy season came undone yesterday. I watched in utter horror as benched players outperformed stalwarts like MJD, Peyton Hillis, Reggie Wayne and others. It all culminated with my worst performances of the season, during the least opportune time.
All I'm left to hope for is less than 17 points out of the Chicago defense tonight so that my bride-to-be can advance to the finals. With Joe Webb under center for the Vikings, I'm not optomistic, no offense to Mr. Webb.
Tonight's game is being played at TCF Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus. Players are already complaining about how hard the field is and how there is a forecast for snow and 13 degrees. With all that swirling around, this game has a chance at history, not for the actual play, but because of all the outside elements.
You have to feel sorry for the Minnesota fans. Just think of the roller coaster ride from the last year. They were moments away from the Super Bowl until they were Favre'd. Then more Favreing over the summer only to have him come back, suck the life out of the team and ultimately leave them with nothing more than Joe Webb.
Oh, and their last home game isn't even at home. Really is there any better metaphor for their season than the Metrodome popping like a water balloon?
Both teams are fairly stout defensively....
