Remember this blog entry? If you don’t feel like clicking on the link and then hitting the “back” button at the top of your internet browser, just know that the blog entry suggested that WR Bernard Berrian was due for a big game against the Green Bay Packers.
Berrian had little success against the Packers in the first 5 seasons of his career – 4 with the Chicago Bears and then last year as a member of the Vikings. So with that in mind, and with all of the pregame attention being focused on QB Brett Favre playing his former team of 16 years, I thought the Berrian angle was a sneaky little subplot that actually had a chance to come to fruition because Green Bay would be so focused on stopping RB Adrian Peterson.
And what do you know? It unfolded in just that manner. Berrian broke out of his shell and had the best game of his 2009 season, hauling in 6 receptions for 75 yards and 1 TD, a 31-yarder in the 3rd quarter that gave the Vikings a 28-14 lead and control of the game.
Berrian led all Vikings receivers in both receptions and yards, and he led a WR group that combined for 13 receptions, 184 receiving yards and 2 TDs.
So, thanks Bernard. We get enough things wrong around here, so it’s nice to be on the money for a change.
