    Perhaps this will be Joe Webb’s debut.

    I hope he is as good as the the other Joes (as in Montana, Namath, etc)!!!

    Mike– what does this mean? — ” the integrity of the broadcast has not been comprised in the least.” I believe it was supposed to read “compromised.”

    Fred, I agree this Joe may be another Montana. And, who knows, maybe in a couple years on a different team, Tavaris will prove to be the next Steve Young.

    Oops– I posted under the wrong one– that mistake was on the newer blog– my bad, that’s what you get for being critical– it usually points right back at you.

    Maybe, Titus. But he’s done here.

    Really, Mr. Smiff?

    Above all, whether Webb is great or so-so, I won’t be criticizing him next week. Sing his praises if all goes well, otherwise, zip, nada, nothing.

    Oh, Mr Smiff, yeah I see what you mean– tavaris is done here, I know that- I thought you meant the writer of these articles– firedchild always said Mike was Chilly’s relative.

    I agree Arrow, but as I said the other night that doesn’t get the rest of the team off the hook.

    I was wrong about last week though when I said the whole team played horrendously. Like the article says, our special teams has played well principally all season and a stat they can be proud of is (I think) they haven’t given up a touchdown off a kickoff or punt.

    A performance like that deserves recognition. Hopefully they perform well again and the rest of the team reward their effort with some of thier own.

    Ricefield: I end up having to go into work again this Monday night, and again I’ll miss most of the game. Enjoy every second of the broadcast. Remember that time when everyone seemed positive and fired up about the Vikings? Oh yeah, that was a week ago coming off of 2 wins. It’s time to start a winning streak, and the Bears were trashed last week.

    The enthusiasm is coming back. Being back in front of a home crowd tends to do that. We’re not out of this game by a long shot. The “Any Given Sunday” rule is most definitely in effect. We can win this game.

    A couple of factors go in our favor. It appears Harvin will play, A.P. will play but is still nicked. The Bears were smoked at home last week in the cold and snow. The 50 Greatest should get a meeting with the team on Monday afternoon. They should be allowed to tell what it meant to them to play for the Minnesota Vikings and share a funny story or two from their playing days. I think the current Vikes would be inspired from it.

    Yeah, in my opinion Favre is a throwback to those guys. He’ll know personally what they’re talking about. If the other guys need to know what it was like they could ask Favre as well as the older gentlemen. Inspired might be too small a word for what the team will feel after talking to them.

    Yeah, Favre has played in many cold weather games. He hasn’t fared as well in recent cold weather games. Last year when the Vikes played in Chicago, I think the temperature was colder than what it should be Monday night. The Vikes got it going in the second half, but lost.

    Yeah, that was a good game though. That was a game to be proud of even though we lost because the team never gave up.

    You’re right, his age shows when the weather gets cold but the way they came back in that game to make it close was impressive enough for me to say with confidence that last year, the cold didn’t effect him as much as it could have.
