It took a few hours to replay last night's Vikings' loss to the Bears in my mind to get a grasp on what happened. I've come to two conclusions... Brett Favre is a MVP caliber quarterback who may be having his best year yet. On the other hand, coach Brad Childress is an unimaginative, out of touch weasel, whose lack of play calling ability will assure the Vikings will be one and done again in this year's playoffs.
I would like nothing better than to see Adrian Peterson run wild for a buck fifty every game, but the offensive line, for whatever reason, is not creating the holes needed to facilitate a power running game. I saw that, every local sports writer sees it, hell, my wife who still wonders why Joe Mauer is not being played could see it. But good ol' Chili Dog can't. It wasn't until Favre said "screw this" and started running a spread offense, did the team start moving down the field.
If this team is to have a prayer, they need to remember why they groveled to get old number 4 and let him do what he does best and run this high powered offense to the best of it's ability.
Like most Vikings fans, I'm not holding my breath.
