Please Let This Be A Really Bad Dream

No, no, no, no, noooooooooooooooooo! Are you [expletive deleted] kidding me, after the Brett Favre fiasco?

Vikings might want to nab McNabb

The Vikings seem to have a strong interest in securing a veteran quarterback once the NFL lockout ends.

It also might be possible the Vikings and Redskins have had some conversations about a deal for 34-year-old quarterback Donovan McNabb, who definitely won’t be a member of his current team once play resumes.

Of course, no deals can be made while the lockout is in progress, but I don’t know if there is any rule against the clubs talking about making a deal.

One reason why McNabb might be the veteran quarterback the team will sign is because Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is personally familiar with McNabb. Frazier was a defensive assistant with the Eagles from 1999 to 2002, when McNabb was in his prime.

This is unbelievable, do the Vikings ever want to win a Super Bowl? An ancient Brett Favre couldn’t get us there, what makes anyone in their right mind think a geriatric Donovan McNabb can get it done? He couldn’t win a Super Bowl in Philadelphia, in his prime, and now he’s 34 and all but washed up! Why the [expletive deleted] do we have to keep trading for QB leftovers, why can’t we draft a QB for the future? Why do the Vikings insist on disappointing their fans and breaking their hearts year in and year out?

/is it wrong to root for the NFL lockout to continue?

Let us pray.

Our Favre-ther who art in Minnesota, hallowed be thy name.
Thy bowl will come, it will be won, In Miami as it is in the Dome.
Give us this Sunday, Our weekly win.
Give us touchdown passes, but do not let others pass against us.
Lead us not into frustration, but deliver us to the Super Bowl.
For thine is the MVP, the …best of the NFC, and the glory of the Purple People Eaters now and forever.
Amen

Is there a football game somewhere amid all this insanity?

/Go Vikings, stomp the ‘Aints! Brees on the ground, Brees on the ground . . .

A Football Prayer

Our Favre-ther who ain’t in Mississippi, hallowed be thy name.
Thy bowl will come, it will be won, In Miami as it is in the Dome.
Give us this Sunday, Our weekly win.
Give us touchdown passes, but do not let others pass against us.
Lead us not into frustration, but deliver us to the Super Bowl.
For thine is the MVP, the …best of the NFC, and the glory of the Purple People Eaters now and forever.
Amen

/go Vikings, stomp the Cowasses!
