Master of field goals is pulling your strings.

Once upon a time there was a great band named Metallica that sang these lyrics “End of passion play, crumbling away, I’m your source of self-destruction” and once upon a time there was a Minnesota Vikings team that those lyrics couldn’t possibly describe.

That seems like such a long time ago.

Lately fans have grown all-to-accustomed to the last minute losses, poor play calling, and even poorer officiating that sometimes decides a game. Today, after 5 valiant field goals and stifling defensive game, another loss. In the bard’s tale of this Viking’s game, only one of the above recent failures applies, it was another unlikely last minute loss.

There are questions that fans and coaches alike must be asking, how can Adrian Peterson have such a great game and the team still gets an “L”, how can the defensive unit play so soundly for so long and the team still takes home an “L”, why didn’t the team score a touchdown with so many opportunities and so much run strength, and ultimately how can this season be saved?

Here are a few more questions while we’re at it.

Is Adrian Peterson learning what it’s like to be Barry Sanders?

Is it time to Free Frerotte? 

Is it possible that Brad Childress is becoming more unliked than Lars Ulrich?

It’s probably not what I’m thinking . . .

Vikings deny tampering with Favre “The Packers claim Favre had “inappropriate dialogue” with Minnesota offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.”

Currently there are 150+ comments on the Star Tribune’s website, but not a single one addresses what I’m wondering. Just how inappropriate could this dialogue have been?

If these “inappropriate” conversations did indeed happen at all I picture them going something like this;

It’s late and Darrell Bevell is feeling a little saucey so he gives his old buddy Favre a call “So Brett, what are you wearing?” to which Brett replies “You know, just my Superbowl ring…” Then Bevell would breathily reply with some inappropriate innuendo laced sweet nothings about scoring (touchdowns) and maybe winning one of those rings for the Vikings.

Ofcourse, I probably just have an inappropriate imagination.

What kind of ridiculous things do you imagine they may have talked about? And just how exactly does one tamper with a person? Though, now that I’ve given the tamper thing some thought, I’m fairly certain Favre’s safety seal has long been broken.
