The TRUTH about Sports

Viking Not Who We Think They Are!

With Brett Favre coming back to the Minnesota Vikings in true dramatic Favre style, everyone thought that they were going to be a shoe-in for the Superbowl.  Ummmm…. think again.  This team has a couple holes to fill and that hole got deeper today with the loss of their #1 pro-bowl receiver Sidney Rice who’s going to be out for half the season.  Enter the highly touted Percy Harvin to take his place.  We all saw what happened to Brett over the weekend when he got knocked to the ground by the 49ers defense.  My suggestion, the Viking go back to what got them here in the first place, one Adrian Peterson.  Remember this guy, the best running back in the league for the past couple of years?  The Vikings need to start feeding him the ball to open up the passing game.  Brett certainly hurt the team by not coming in early for training camp and is frankly messing with the team’s mojo. First game of the season will be at the reigning champion New Orleans Saints.  The Saints are 4.5 point favorites and I LOVE that line.
