LOL.. i find it interesting that the pats have a better record than 3 of the NFCs 6 playoff teams. and the pats didn't make it. the chargers made it in with an 8-8 record, and 11-5 wasn't good enough for new england. no sour grapes here, just an observation on my part. all the pats had to do was win one more game. they didn't get it done. the vikes are a sorry team. all they need is a coach and a QB....the best running back in the game didn't even get to smell the ball in the 4th quarter...how does childress justify that, when all their points came from AD? i can only hope that minnesota either drafts Sam Bradford, or that they trade AD to the pats:big_smile: you folks have a good year in 09!
