A win-win for the Vikings
November 7, 2010 - Per Peterson
Admit it, Vikings fans, there was a part of you — sometime during Sunday’s game against Arizona — that hoped the Purple would find another way to lose, thereby increasing the chances that Brad Childress would be fired before the end of the business day Monday. It was a real win-win for everyone. A Vikings win would keep them in the race for a possible division title. A Vikings loss and Childress would’ve been out the door. As it is, the Vikings came from behind and found a way to win a home game against an inferior team. Other than the play of Percy Harvin, Brett Favre and the defensive linemen for a few series, there was little to be impressed about. This team is far too talented to eke an OT win out over a mediocre team quarterbacked by Derek Anderson. The problem is, their coach, who has totally lost control of this team, is out of his league. The Vikings don’t win this game without a hobbled Percy Harvin playing his heart out — the same Percy Harvin Childress allegedly called out in practice recently. They don’t win this game without Brett Favre, who is as close to Childress as Plankton is with Mr. Krabs. If this team was motivated to win Sunday, it wasn’t because of their librarian of a coach. They were playing for each other, they were playing for pride. They rallied to win, not for their coach, but for themselves. And in doing so, salvaged their season for at least another week.
