Video: Vikings throw late TD in blowout, Brooking goes after Favre
yahoo ^ | 1.17.10 | Chris Chase

Posted on 01/17/2010 8:05:10 PM PST by trumandogz

Did the Minnesota Vikings run up the score on the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's NFC divisional playoff? Keith Brooking(notes) thinks so. A late Brett Favre(notes) touchdown pass infuriated the Dallas linebacker, who charged over to the Vikings' sideline to voice his displeasure. And in his postgame press conference he didn't back down. The Vikings had held a comfortable 27-3 lead since the early part of the fourth quarter. Dallas looked completely deflated after going down 24 points and the team's subsequent play did nothing to dispel that notion. On the Cowboys' next two possessions the team went four-and-out, gaining a mere 14 yards on eight plays.

Apparently, the Dallas Cowboys are a bunch of crybabies and cannot handle a loss.

And rumor has it that the Cowboys will be drafting Tim Tebow.

Note to Cowboys defenders: if you don’t like to see opponents score touchdowns, you’re allowed to try to stop them.

Wah, wah, wah. Favre had a bone to pick with Dallas. He got it out of his system. Dallas got whipped, get over it.

Waaah, they had 11 guys out on the field that could have stopped the Vikes from getting that late touchdown. They failed.

Considering that it was the Vikes’ last home game, why not leave the fans with a parting gift.

As a Lions fan, I loved hearing the commentators point out that Dallas hadn’t been shut out of the end zone in the playoffs, since the Lions beat them 38-6 back in 91.

Childress also said something about “those Tasmanian Devils” from Dallas that were gonna ride through through Minnesota like Sherman through the South. Guess they were a little bugged by that.

Maybe Brooking thinks the NFL Competition Committee should add a Mercy Rule next year? Would he prefer that the refs just call the game early if there is a comfortable lead?

Otherwise, isn't it in the league charter to be competitive? What are you supposed to do if you're up and there is still a quarter to go? Are they supposed to just take a knee three times and punt?

The Vikes have always been a team that didn’t have a step-on-their-neck killer instinct.

That’s why the’ve never won a SB in four attempts.

They made a statement, today.

They may not win it all, but they have the right mindset.

Brooking was a member of the defense on a losing team, today.

He needs to watch some film and find out why....

He's most likely still pissed off by that and taking it out on the Vikes.

Maybe the Cowgirls can go back to the safety of their billion dollar stadium and pretend they are Americas Team.

The reason Favre humiliated them is because........well. cuz he could. It sure wiped the smirk from jerrys face.

Since the Cowpies and their supporters have done so much chest-pounding over the past few weeks, I guess they’ve got to pick something to whine about.

As noted earlier, “if you don’t want them to score, stop them”.

As someone who lives in Green Bay and has hated the Cowboys back in the 90s when they were eliminating the Packers from the playoffs, it's kind of hard for me to gin up tears. I don't blame Favre for doing what he did although it hurts to see him doing it as a Viking.

why would Jerry Jones fire him? If you want to fire the reason the cowboys haven't won is cause you can't fire an owner.

Jerry Jones started thinking he was a "football expert" after two of Jimmy Johnson's teams won Super Bowls and he got that idiot Switzer to take another Jimmy Johnson team to the Super Bowl.

I wish Jerry would just get in the owner's box, drink scotch and bang cheerleaders instead of playing general manager, coach and all around douche bag.

Wade is an excellent coordinator who got the Cowboys in the playoffs.

Defensive Coordinators, IMO make horrible head coaches. Look at Buddy Ryan, Ray Rhodes, etc. Excellent coordinators but horrible as coaches.

I’ve despised the Cowboys ever since they went out of their way to taunt the Packers during a playoff game several years back in a sickening display of childish unsportsmanship.

I have no problem with Favre getting a little revenge.

I did not see the Cowboys throw in the towel or wave a white flag. Would they not have been very pleased to score on the Vikings at that juncture (if they could have).

The pussy-fication of football continues. Must I really take up watching rugby to find the last real men in sports?

I dont think Favre, Childress or any Viking fan in the building gives a rat's ass about the Cowboy's feelings.

Maybe the Cowboy's ought to feel bad about how they allowed the Vikings to run up the score.

There's no such thing as "running up the score". If one team can't keep the other team from scoring, whether it's on the first play of the game or the last, then the defense simply isn't playing very well. For a defense to try to blame it's own shortcomings on the fact that the other team's offense scored again is simply whining on the part of the defense.

Now that I agree. And if I were coaching a team any player that pulled a stunt like that would sit for the rest of the game. Score first, then celebrate.

I was sitting in the bar area of a local restaurant eating lunch on Thursday. I looked up and there was what I thought was John Walker's ugly traitorous mug staring back at me answering questions on ESPN. I did a double take and then realized I had NOT accidentally fallen on to some really weird space-time line and that really was the Vike coach.
Well Favre may well be the greatest QB to have ever played the game. To bad he left Green Bay in such a tawdry manner. Go Vikes !
