So this is what happened the last time the Vikings made a trip to Green Bay for a playoff game. Randy Moss dropping a metaphoric starfish right in Lambeau's eye and the Vikings took part in the early phase of a decade of playoff failures. Well I hope Vikings fans drank it in that night because there is absolutely no way this happens again on Saturday. Sure the Vikings are hot right now. Sure Adrian Peterson is doing in real life what Bo Jackson did in Tecmo Super Bowl. And sure the Packers blew a chance to avoid this game altogether when they lost a bye in Minnesota last weekend. But none of that matters tomorrow. Because the bottom line is the Packers are the better team. We have the better quarterback. We have the better wide receivers. We have the best looking bloggers. And we've got the home field. And there's just no way Christian Ponder pulls an Uncle Rico and throws the football over dem der mountains like he did last weekend. Like that's the x factor folks. Christian. Ponder. Kid pulled 125 QB rating out of his ass like he was David Copperfield. I don't care how porous our defense is, there's just no way that happens twice in 6 days. I'm not saying it's going to be easy but in a different way it is. Oh and I love the cover for the degenerates out there. Packers -7.5 all day*. 34-24 final.

That being said there's just no way they don't cover. It's like Vegas is investing in the Human Fund or something. So if free money is something you're interested in I'd lay the wood down heavy.
PS: Are we in the trust tree? With the nest? Because I have something I'd like to admit: I like Randy Moss. And it started with that play right there. As depressed as I was I have to admit I laughed when it happened. And the fact that Joe Buck hated made me like it more. Plus is led to one of the greatest quotes in sports history:
That 36 second clip almost made the loss worth it. You have me from straight cash homie Randy.
