December Is Finally Over

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 31, 2009 – 7:32 am

Today is New Year’s Eve Day, which means that tonight people will gather to celebrate the memories from 2009 and usher in a brand new year – 2010.

But Vikings fans and everyone here at Winter Park should celebrate for a different reason as well – the month of December is finally over.

No team in the NFL should be happier to get out of this month than the Vikings, who have lost 3 of 4 games in the past month and saw middle LB E.J. Henderson go out for the season with a fractured leg on December 6 at Arizona. The Vikings entered December in prime position for the NFC’s #2 seed and with a solid chance at catching the Saints for home-field advantage. Now, the Vikings exit December needing a win this week and a Philadelphia loss to get a 1st-round bye.

On the morning of the Vikings-Cardinals game, we blogged about how the going would get rougher for the Vikings in December after going 3-0 in November to climb to 10-1 overall. And it did. The Vikings had a challenging stretch of games this month, including consecutive contests against division winners (Arizona and Cincinnati), 3 prime time games in 4 weeks (all on the road) and back-to-back prime time games at Carolina and at Chicago.

So as you gather tonight to celebrate with family and friends, make a toast to the month of January. After all, we’re so happy it’s finally here.

    I think if the Vikes can build off of that last 2 quarters from Monday night and come out and put 45 on the board…thay can carry that out and through the playoffs. I predict that Dallas will beat Philly. I also have said this for a month..Saints will lose their first game…..that would give us home field in the NFC championship game. It’s funny how sports and life seem to have away of working towards the ironic…I have said this for a month now too….Vikes -vs-Greenbay in NFC title game! There will be know bigger drama that the NFL has seen than the week working towards that game……..can you feel it Vike fans?! I can !!!!!!!!!!
