Regardless of how it makes you feel, the New Orleans Saints victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV last Sunday brought closure. I see it as closure to the NFC Championship Game loss the Vikings endured to New Orleans, though, more than closure to the 2009 season.
With the Super Bowl finally in the rear view mirror, I feel we can now commence our look back at the 2009 season and how special it was. Doing so before the Super Bowl, however, would’ve simply caused us to redirect our conversation to the disappointing loss in New Orleans. Now, however, there’s no reason to focus our conversation on the NFC Championship Game. Instead, we can look back at the ‘09 season, point out the good things about it, figure out how to learn from the disappointing aspects it and then focus our attention on how the Vikings can improve for the 2010 season.
In the next couple of weeks before the NFL Scouting Combine, vikings.com and the vikings.com Blog will spend some time reviewing the 2009 season – from top plays to record breakers to Pro Bowlers to the success of the draft class to some of the unheralded stars that performed well in ‘09.
So be sure to keep coming back to vikings.com throughout the offseason because we’ll have something new for you every day.
