Regular vikings.com Blogger Mike Wobschall’s computer took a dirt-nap last night / this morning, so thus the reason for no blog posts since last night. The good news is that the computer is getting worked on and should be up and running soon.
All in all, a crappy night in Chicago. Too many mistakes to overcome, even against a below-average team like the Bears. Thankfully, the Vikings are still in a position to get the No. 2 overall seed in the NFC, so long as they beat the Giants at Mall of America Field on Sunday and the Cowboys knock off the Eagles in “Big D.” Neither is a lock to happen, but the Vikings are money at home (7-0 and crushed a very good Bengals team just two weeks back) and the Cowboys already beat Philly this year on the road and are playing well heading into a huge game for both teams.
If the Vikings fail to secure a bye, they will host either the Cowboys or the Packers at the Dome next weekend, and then would have to travel to Philly or New Orleans should they advance for the Divisional Round. Yuck.
Meanwhile, at Winter Park, Head Coach Brad Childress will address the media today at about 3:15 p.m. or so after a team meeting. You can watch it live on vikings.com and we’ll — like always — have the on-demand video posted shortly after.
Also later today, at about 6:15 p.m., the NFL will announce the 2010 Pro Bowl rosters. Several Vikings are expected to be named, so stay tuned to vikings.com for that info as well.
Lastly, it kind of gets forgotten given how the game ended, but how awesome was the Favre-to-Rice touchdown? Click here to watch the video.
