    It depends whether or not Randy Moss "feels" like playing or not.
    Lazy Moss: Ravens 14, Vikings 6.
    Moss Actually Trying: Ravens 14, Vikings 57.
    Which one is more likely? All I can say is poor Dilfer.[​IMG]

    I don't know about you guys but I was hoping for a better game than the one I saw played.

    The only headline I'd like to see is "Elvis has left the building"....

    He is way off his A-game and not sure if it's coming back.

    Spurgeon Wynn just can't get it done. I was super surprised by the Vikes defensive stand though at the 1 yard line when they held them to a field goal. It'll be interesting to see who ends up being the Vikes next head coach. I'm shooting for Spurrier or Dungy if the Bucs let him go. Hopefully Red will shell out some mad cash to keep Cris Carter around too.

    I'm sure the people who had the Vikings +10 were not too happy with the fumble return at the end of the game.

    That was a very ugly game. If the Ravens struggle like that against the ViQueens, I don't think they will last long in the playoffs.

    That game was played very poorly. Even with Todd Bauman the vikes would have had a clear shot. The two misfires to Moss in the end zone cost the vikes a lot of points, and one turned into 3 pts for the ravens. Wynn just doesn't have an accurate throw.

    The Ravens don't have nearly the bite they had last year. They'll lose their woldcard game this weekend.

    Thankfully, Spurgeon Wynn is not the future of the Vikings.

    Sorry, Jeff, but being a Detroit Li-downs fan, I need to project some abuse outward every now and then. Minnesota is always a good target for a suffering Detroit fan. [​IMG]

    As a life long Vikings fan it ended the way I wanted it to. We aren't making the playoffs so we might as well lock up that 7th pick overall.

    There was no way we should have been in the game that long with a third string QB. How bad has Baltimore gotten in one year? I guess losing their RB was bigger than I thought.

    Spurrier's not coming to Minny. He can't golf 200 times a year there. And, last night McCombs ruled out Mack Brown which is good. I want an experienced head coach and not a college guy or even an existing coordinator.

    Patrick, I will be deeply concerned if Mike Tice is given the job by default. While I respect him as an assistant, I just don't think he is the answer in the long-term.

    I hate the SOB, but I would love to see what Steve Spurrier could do with a fast team on a fast track. Did I really say that? Spurrier?!!! :b
