And nicely done Farve + Jets :shock:

Lol won a few games only reason you make it sound as if they are a bad team. Right now there 2nd and 3rd string quarterbacks couldn't even pulling a starting job at the college level, Tony Romo W-L record is great, but when you get shitty qbs playing your going to loose games. Ill also say that Demarcus Ware is hands down the best OL/DE in the game, hes incredible at pass rushing or stopping the run. I will say it is ridiculous to be 8-4 and have the 7th seed. I never thought the titans are all that talented and is why you never really heard the rants of going 16-0, but what they do well, better then any other team in the nfl is execute to the t on a week to week basis, aside from the jet game of course.
Brad Johnson has a super bowl ring, which isn't to say he's a great quarterback, or even a good one, but that does put a bit of a damper on your assesment because at the very least he was at one time good enough to win a super bowl with a good enough team. I also have to mention Jared Allen as being right there with Ware from the DE position. It's a god damn shame that the Williams wall was dumb enough to get themselves suspended with the Vikings in postition to quite possibly play Dallas in the first round of the playoffs. Pretty sure that's not gonna happen now. Dallas is definitly on par with New York in the NFC when Romo is healthy, and if the Vikes could have beaten them in the first round of the playoffs I'd actually have hope for the super bowl. But, alas, with the Williams' gone I think the Vikings can probably just hang it up for the season.

In a lot of cases the backup is the backup because he's:
1. Not good enough to land a starting job on another team
2. Experienced enough to learn the system of the team he's on quickly
3. Will demand a relatively low amount of pay as to not have a huge impact against the cap.

Seriously if you have a high paid backup QB, chances are you also have less talent somewhere else because you cannot pay for it.

I'd prefer the scenario of thinking "oh crap, here comes Brad Johnson" if the main guy gets hurt to the scenario that Derek Anderson in Cleveland faced (having Brady Quinn behind him)... just the first example I could think of.

Smart money is on pretty much any team other then the Vikings in the playoffs, but with our D-line and Adrian Peterson/Chester Taylor you can't possibly count them out of any game. Next week we'll see how the Vikes vs. Cards thing will play out. I'm more afraid of Atlanta then Arizona tbh.

I think the Giants are the most consistant and most solid team week in and week out in the NFC. I think Dallas is the most underperforming team in the NFC this season, I think on their best day they're better then the Giants, but Dallas doesn't have many of those best days it seems, which brings the "any given sunday" factor into the mix in a big way this year.

BTW in Gus's first start this year the vikes beat Carolina, and the only reason we lost to Tampa is because Garcia (who Childress should have picked up in the off-season) is a fuckin apparition in the pocket and our defense is almost completely dependent on the front four getting pressure.

i think dallas would have the best shot at the giants, being them a division rival and they have a guy named demarcus ware

I know.
I am trying to decide who's collapse was worse.
Denver had three weeks to win just one game and could not do it. They lost the division and the winners ended up being 8-8
Tampa Bay from the same week had the _chance_ to be the no.2 seed in the NFC. Instead they lost out and not only are they not the no.2 seed, they're not in the playoffs.

:(

It's a weird year, NE not makin it in but Arizona does. The Vikings backed into the playoffs and wound up with just about as good a schedule as they could possibly get, they get the Eagles at home and then if they win they get Carolina (who we beat in the regular season) and then if the NFC championship were against the Giants, which is likely, we just played them and beat them in the last game of the season (though that doesn't mean much if you as NE, heh). I know that they weren't playing for anything, but the only starter they sat was Manning for the second half, and Carr definitely didn't hurt their chances the way he played. I know I'm setting myself up for a HUGE disappointment here but I'm actually optimistic despite the Vikings history of fucking it up every single time, 4 super bowl losses and at least 1 NFC championship blown. I can't even imagine how I'd react if the Vikes won the super bowl, I'd go fuckin ballistic.
