Cynical Vikings Guy: I Told You So
There were those who mocked my pre-season call for firing Childress. There were those who disbelieved me when a said that Troy Williamson could not catch a pass. There were those who thought Brad Johnson still had something left and that it was ridiculous to call for rookie Tarvaris Jackson to start. There were those who thought the Vikings had a shot at making the playoffs. I have four words for all of you:
I told you so.
I could have said this after last week’s dismal performance (9 points against the pathetic 49ers defense) but I decided to wait a week for the Vikings to reach Rock Bottom: a 23-17 loss to the worst team in the league: the Green Bay Packers.
It is time to write off this season and prepare for the future:
- Start Tarvaris Jackson to get him some experience
- Try to find a team stupid enough trade us a seventh round draft pick for Troy Williamson
- Apologize to the fans for drafting Ryan Cook in the second round
- Fire Childress; come up with a plan to lure Tony Dungy from the Colts for next season
- Stop sucking
There is one silver lining: the obsessive Packer guys are starting to get their hopes up. It will be sweet to see their spirit crushed once more.
