There have been so many questions that will remain unanswered for the 2010 Vikings going into Week 17. What happened to the team that was 1 pass from going to the Super Bowl a season ago? I think that is the main question right there.
The game that the Vikes play this week will be interesting to say the LEAST. The loser of the game will the cellar dweller of the NFC North this season.If the Lions win on Sunday, that would be first time since 2007 that they (Lions) would not finish in last place in the division.
Leslie Frazier's Future
For Leslie Frazier, it seems that he has not won over the higher ups just yet. So it looks that he is still trying to earn the right to be the Vikings Head Coach in 2011 and beyond. In my opinion, Frazier has earned the respect in the locker room, that is something that Chilly has never had control over especially in the 2 years Favre was here. In the month or so that Frazier has been the interiem head coach has been craziness. He has done the best he could with what the Vikes went through.
This has included the collapse of the Metrodome roof -- the Vikings were forced to play "home" games in Detroit and at TCF Bank Stadium -- and the NFL's decision to push last Sunday's game between the Vikings and Eagles to Tuesday because of the threat of a blizzard in Philadelphia.
Will Favre Pass
With this expected to be Brett Favre's NFL game. Favre has yet to be cleared to play due to failing the concussion tests yesterday. So Favre will need to pass the tests tomorrow to be be able to play on Sunday. If Favre does pass the tests he is expected to start for the Vikes at Ford Field.
If Favre cannot go, Joe Webb would be the starter for the game. Webb did a stellar job for the Vikes on Sund...Mond....nope Tuesday Night for the Vikes. He did well great job managing the game and not turnover the ball.
The game that I am looking forward to watching is the Rams-Seattle game. I would be something to see a team with a losing record make the playoffs. It does not matter who wins that game, because ESPN will be going berserk, because term with more wins were left out of the playoffs.
Other than that i hope that everybody has a great and safe New Years. I hope for the Vikes to have a great 2011 campaign.
