Point, Counterpoint

This week's Vikings victory over the Cardinals was, more than anything I think, a case of point & counterpoint. Point: -The defense played very well.  Larry Fitzgerald was shut down, Jared Allen...

"A Man Can't Pass, He Can't Win!"

In the third Karate Kid movie, the crazy instructor gives his theory of fighting to Daniel: "A man can't stand, he can't fight".   Well, today the Minnesota Vikings proved that if "a man can't...

A Reason For Optimism

I know I'll probably get ripped for saying this, but I don't have high hopes for the Vikings this year.  I know that quick turnarounds are indeed very possible in today's NFL and I will still enjoy...
