Thoughts From Vikings Players On Moving Game To Tuesday Night

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 26, 2010 – 1:18 pm

As you know by now, tonight’s Vikings-Eagles game has been postponed due to weather and is not scheduled for Tuesday night. The Vikings gathered as a team earlier this afternoon to go over details and we were able to catch up with a bunch of players following that meeting to hear their thoughts on the situation.

Here’s what they had to say…

Adrian Peterson: “Hey, at least it’s another couple of days to heal. We just have to handle this like we have everything else that has gone on this season. Coach Frazier told us to continue to stick together, to stay focused, and that’s what we’ll do. This is just another bump in the road.”

Jared Allen: “What else can you say? Just add this to the list for the 2010 season. But you know what, we have to remain together as a team and keep a positive mind frame. It’s important to be a professional and be ready to play on Tuesday night.”

Chad Greenway: “It’s just another interesting twist to our season. It’s been tough to deal with all the distractions and this just adds to it. We’ll be staying here for a couple nights, so we’ll treat it like a (college) bowl game. In a bowl game you’re typically there for about a week and we’ll be here for about three days. But it has that feel. Everybody is here together; we’ll be hanging out. I’ll probably go get a cheese steak tonight and just hang out.”

“At this point, there is so much time. We have to take some time just to relax, watch a couple movies and hang out. When it comes down to it, tomorrow we’ll get back into our game planning. We’ll watch some more film and keep interested in what’s going on instead of getting lost in the craziness.”

Ryan Longwell: “It’s tough, especially in a season that you didn’t think any more curve balls could happen. This is a rough one being away from our families during Christmas and being stuck in Philly. At the same time you realize that you’ve got to reconfigure the mind for Tuesday night and show up ready to play.”

On what the leadership committee discussed with Interim Head Coach Leslie Frazier: “A couple different angles. One is the logistics of being stuck in a hotel. Usually we’re a hotel for one night so guys bring one change of clothes and that’s it. Now we’ll be here for three days and we have to figure out how to take care of guys. So the logistics is one thing. Two is keeping your mind right. We have every reason, because of the season, to say ‘this is the last straw and I’m checking out.’ But this is the NFL and you can’t do that. You have to show up ready to play Tuesday night and that’s what we’re trying to get the young guys and everybody to understand.”

Percy Harvin: “Football is football, no matter what day you play it. They’re accommodating us very well at the hotel. We get to wash our clothes, there are movies to watch and we can eat. It’s just like being at home; we’ve just got to stay here, relax and then be ready when it’s time to play.”

Visanthe Shiancoe: “As a professional athlete, as coach (Leslie Frazier) said, you can only control your attitude and your approach to it. So we have to have a positive approach to it. We get a little extra time to rest, a little extra time to be in the playbook and we’re still going to be on a national stage. We still have a chance to showcase the Vikings. We need to stay ready, no matter the circumstances.”

Joe Webb: “It’s another situation you can’t control. The only thing we can control is keeping our focus and staying composed. We need to fight through this adversity. It’s important to not check out mentally and stay in the playbook studying so we are prepared for the game.”

Heath Farwell: “We’re just going to roll with it, that’s what we have to do. We’ve had a lot of adversity this year and this is another example of it. We are professionals and we have to adapt to what’s given to us.”

    Why didn’t “they” close the parking lots; everyone would have to take trains, which would eliminate the “danger”. Maybe that is too easy, but playing Tuesday is really stupid and unfair to the teams.

    to think that next weeks game against the lions could be for last in the division. it has been a h-ell of a year. rice gets real late start to season, favre bombs (oline had alot to do with that), ced grif out for year, chilly FIRED (awesome by the way), randy moss no randy moss, 3rd rd pick no 3rd rd pick (stupid), dome collapses, and the possibility of going from 1st to last. my opinion on this year is everyone else got better while we got worse (loss of our 3rd down converter chester taylor, wish we still had reynaud and benny sapp). for as much as we got s-hit on this year we are primed for one of those miracle stories for next year. that might be the only way we win a sb. next year will be interesting to say the least. enjoy the off season vike fans. oh one last thing, vikes aren’t going anywhere. no way does the league break up the blacknblue div. too many years of tradition and rivalry. but then again goodell is capable of anything

    To listen to the players, you’d think that moving to Tuesday was akin to playing on Mars. If you’ve got reasonable team discipline, and some very basic facilities – heck, the hotel parking garage – there really shouldn’t be any performance excuses. On the other hand, next week’s games could be affected.

    i can see if this game was canceled if nobody invented the snow plow machines or shovels. but who cares if its like blizzard conditions. its football, not the kind of “football” they play in europe. i wonder how the lions game is gonna get postponed next week

  21. By Justin on Dec 26, 2010 | Reply

    Lions beat the Dolphins
    Packers decimate the Giants
    Bears beat the Jets

    Wouldn’t it be nice if the Vikings beat the Eagles and make it a NFC North weekend? Then again, who am I kidding?

  22. By Titus on Dec 26, 2010 | Reply

    The game was moved primarily because of the fans and stadium workers– to have 73,000 people stranded at night in the heart of the blizzard would not be cool. This postponement was not to keep the players from getting their toes cold.
    Smart move actually– this storm is of the proportions of what we had in Minneapolis a few weeks back– we have the resources to deal with winter and yet that storm messed our roads for about a week.

    So the NFL, in all it’s “wisdom”, schedules the Super Bowl in Giants stadium. What happens if it snows? The Super Bowl on a Tuesday night?

    Someone on this blog the other day declared that dogs were just “property”. Obviously that person never owned one. There is a reason they are called “man’s best friend”. You can never find loyalty like that in anything that walks on two legs.

    I read that article where Vick declared himself MVP and the blog after that was quite incendiary — some morons equated the dog fights to hunting.
    As far as property, well that is extreme.

    One of my favorite books of his was the one about bullfighting– the sun also rises– that was partly why I went to see the spectacle. I doubt I will ever go again, but who knows? Maybe one day when I travel to Barcelona or wherever. You do the unexpected when you travel- that is what makes it fun.

    I went to my first(and last) bullfight years ago. I can’t watch some hanky-crotch greaseball slowly kill a drugged-up animal.

    And the bulls are ALWAYS drugged up, that’s the only chance the matadors have.

    I agree– it was one and out for me too– 1993 I believe. Later I was eating in a fine restaurant– delicious steak– unbelievably good and I asked the waiter if that was from the bullfight. He didn’t seem amused.

    Nova, I was thinking of that during this discussion. I am reading a book about business and it is called the running of the bulls– the author actually participated in it because his son was doing it, and he thought he could protect him— sounds insane. I doubt any of the matadors participate.

    Shawn, one thing I have learned– the system works one way or another over time. OJ’s life was ruined through that trial, and to some extent, so was MJ’s– and the jury is still out in my opinion on Jackson.
    OJ, I think he committed murder, but he spent all his money to defend himself and his reputation has been tarnished forever– he paid a price.
    Even if you get acquitted, often you pay in everything else– legal fees, reputation, family etc.

    I have my doubts about MJ– as to his guilt. First time– the “victims” got paid– so of course there was another time and another time. There is motive on the “victims” side that raises considerable doubt in my mind. A chance to get lots of money? From a star who admits to sleeping with the kids? I don’t know about you, but kids innocently sharing a bed with adults to watch movies or read and then sleep– it does happen and without incident. MJ was known to be stunted in childhood– I just am not sure at all that he was guilty.

    I didn’t put a photo on my Metro pass in Paris and the Metro cops who are always looking for deadbeats who jump the turnstyles will come out of nowhere asking for your ticket— they ambushed a whole trainload of passengers– we came to a sudden stop of walled flesh– I had paid for my pass, but I had not put a photo– they took 20 or 30 euro from me. I knew that was easier than fighting it out at the police station or in court.

    BECAUSE I TRULY LOVE THE VIKINGS, I’VE GOT TO SAY IT! YEAH, YOU’RE ALL SAYING THE RIGHT STUFF ABOUT KEEPING “MENTALLY ENGAGED” & BEING “PROFESSIONALS” — BUT THE FACT IS THAT CHICAGO BLEW US OUT!

    SORRY VIKINGS — BUT I SAW WHAT SHANAHAN’S REDSKINS DID AGAINST A SUPERIOR TEAM YESTERDAY — AND IF YOU – “LESLIE’S VIKINGS” – DON’T PLAY JUST AS WELL THIS WEEK, THEN WE’RE WASTING OUR TIME WITH COACH FRAZIER.

    I hate to say it, but “Shut up Mooch!!” Some of us want to see Favre torch the dog-killer and his team. I also have tickets to the Lions game just to see Favre play one last time. I’m glad the Brett has a couple more days to pass the concussion tests.

    Is Favre in Phily or did he stay in Mn. because he was not cleared by doctors?

    Flag football, the trend of the NFL, soon to be the FFL, (Flag Football league). That is what unions bring you. Just think, less injuries for the mighty boys out there on the field. They could then show off their ballerina moves and look so good for the ladies.

    Brett Favre: “Y’know, Tuesday Night Football on NBC! I’ll play because I hate seeing guys like Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay and Joe Webb here, try and fill my shoes. Concussions for me just come and go. Heck, I think I take a Quinten Mikell or Stuart Bradley hit and be okay. Hey, Trent Cole and Mike Patterson! Bring it on! I ain’t scared of you!”
    And then during the game he gets killed when Mikell, Bradley, Patterson and Cole make some super hit tackles. Brett, if you play, see you in the afterlife.

    Favre must think Peterson’s comment is the greatest.

    What a heck of a season it has been. I couldn’t believe this game got cancelled. Bad news seems to love MN Vikings. Still got LOVE for my home town team no matter what. GO VIKINGS! what coach Frazier said is true all this only makes you a better team. I can’t wait for 2011 Season, I know it’s going to be a much better one…. What a year….

    Coming home tomorrow but won’t be in till Wednesday night.

    Sucks that the game was postponed but I should be able to catch it when we stop for the night.

    Go Vikings!!!!

    I saw the Mooch video. You can see how hard it was for him to tell Favre to hang it up. I thought I heard his heart break when he said it.

    If the city of philly canceled the game you would think that would be concidered a forfit right? the vikes plaed in a snow storm last week and did anyone catch the pats vs bears game?
