Video: Vikings throw late TD in blowout, Brooking goes after Favre
Yahoo News ^ | 1/18/10 | Chris Chase

Posted on 01/18/2010 8:51:47 AM PST by OneVike

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.

I love the killer instinct, they have just put New Orleans on notice.

We are coming for you Aints!

This was enough to make me rethink giving up Football after the playoffs.

Kicking a FG to take the easy points would have been running up the score. They gave the Cowboys a chance to keep them from scoring and they didn’t get it done.

A team should be trying to score on every play, regardless of the score. If the lead is insurmountable, put in your backups to gain game experience.

I hate that “take a knee” crap.

I’m not sure what running up the score means, unless it means the cowboys were handed their arse on a platter. hehe It was a great game!

They of course don't mention how the Dallas defense went after Peterson’s legs in the previous two running plays before the touchdown...nor do they mention the kick to the head or knee to the chest that was administered on the play right before the touchdown.

IMO, the touchdown pass was retaliation for trying to hurt Peterson.

again...IMHO

If I don’t like the score to be run up, I try to stop the defense. This is the pros. This isn’t the Big 10, the best conference in college football (The SEC can talk to me when they play games in cold weather) vs Division 2.

The linebacker could have prevented the Vikings from running up the score by playing some defense. But, what should we expect from the “it’s not my fault” mentality.

The Dallas Crybabies did not throw in the towel or wave a white flag. They were still playing. The Vikings have every right to "run up the score" if they can. The Crybabies should have tried harder to stop them.

This is a far cry from the Vikings faking the kneeldown on the last play of the game and, instead, throwing the bomb, hoping to pad the final score.

I am hoping that Jerry Jones is upset about his team's embarrassing performance, too.

As a Green Bay Packers fan, though, I had rather hoped the dome would collapse during the game and take out both teams.

In the words of the famous Myron Cope (Pittsburgh Steelers announcer) The CryBoys are whining again.
Kinda reminds me of Cliff Harris after Jack “Splat” Lambert put him on his A** after jerking Roy Gerela around for missing a field goal. The CryBoys are the bottom of the barrel as far as the playoff teams go and deserve to lose again.

I really shouldn’t have laughed out loud at this but I did anyway :).

Actually, I like the Vikings, nice helmets and uniforms and that “cheerleader” Ragnar the Viking cracks me up.

But I loathe Dallas - I’m a 3rd generation lifelong Giants fan.

They gave them the ball practically in the red zone. The funny thing is, I bet there is a correlation between people who think the Vikes were “running up the score like mean people” and being politically to the left. Equalization, spreading the wealth and so on...

Yes. Is there a penalty for excessive celeration in professional football? Our high school team was penalized for excessive celebration after scoring to break a tie in the last minute of the game. They didn’t call the touchdown back but gave a yardage penalty for the point after. PC is stoopid.

I got on the Favre bandwagon during the Chicago game. 4th and goal, 2 seconds left. MN down by 7. Vikes need to score to send it to OT.

70,000 fans in Chicago, all screaming for Favre's head. He gets under center, camera zooms in for a closeup....

And Favre has a HUGE grin on his face. Sheer Bliss. Sez me, "This is why he came back. This is a guy doing exactly what he wants, right at this very second."

I climbed aboard the bandwagon, would love to see him go out with a win.

FWIW,He tossed a perfect strike into the endzone. Touchdown, Game goes to OT. (they later lost....)

It is NFL football — taking a knee is stupid! The Vikes sent a message they are in it to win which is how it should be when you play football.

It is a tough call who to root for but the Vikings win out every so slightly with having Adrian Peterson and Phill Loadholt from the Oklahoma Sooners although the Saints have Jamaal Brown and Garrett Hartley from the Sooners as well. It is hard to root against Hartley who my son had in his class he taught at OU.

Although seeing AD get a Super Bowl ring would be AWESOME so I am supporting the Vikes on Sunday. AD has a summer camp here in Norman for young kids. We see purple AD shirts in the stadium during game days ever since he went to the Vikings.

The Vikes have long been known for not having a killer instinct.

I agree, and what about the mugging the Refs were allowing the girls to do to Harvin over the middle without throwing flags.

The pundits and even the Refs wanted the cowboys to win as far as I was concerned

All week long all I heard was how the boys were going to annihilate the Vikings.

Favre never beat them in the playoffs, that’s what they said, the Vikings are not that good they said, the boys are going all the way they said.

Well, as Berman said, that’s why they play the game.

Now they claim mthe Vikes do not have a chance against the Saints. Well the Vikes put New Orleans on notice, we are coming after you. And we can score with the best of them.

Was this an issue when the Cowboys did it to the Eagles two weeks in a row? A combined 58-14 score, that could be considered running it up, but you didn’t see any Eagles running over to the Dallas sideline bitching.

Only crybabies come out when they get their asses handed to them instead of getting what they wanted.

I agree about the killer instinct. It’s message sending time and the Vikes sent one to N.O.

I was at the game yesterday, and the atmosphere in the Dome was absolutely unbelievable.

Our defense just rocked.

No matter what happens in the future, this will be put away in my memory bank as one of my favorite experiences.

I don't know what next week will bring, but I say bring it on. Vikes vs Jets in the SuperBowl!!!!!!

This will live on as the year of the 4's! #4 turns 40. This is his 4th NFL team. He threw 4 touchdowns yesterday. And in three weeks #4 will be playing in SuperBowl 44!!!!!!!!!

Good to read you on the thread. Thought you were MIA yesterday on the NFL thread.

If the Cow babies could tackle, the outcome may have been different.

Hey, come on. As a 66 YO life-long Packer fan, let's show a little class. We didn't make it. Time to roll up the sleeves and root for the division, and the league in the big one. I'd even be rooting for the Bears (then the Vikings, then the Lions) if they were still in contention and we weren't. This is only football, after all, and there's no reason to show bitterness. That's what Brookings was doing.

The Vikes also wanted to score since it was their last home game for the season. I don’t think they try to score if they hosted next week’s game.

Romo running the fumble and interception play didn't help.

I did like his fall down plays.

Has Jerry had security escort Wade out yet?

Just because Brooking quit, the Vikes have no obligation to do the same.

The Cowboys kept calling timeout, so they were at least going through the motions of what happens in a competitive football game.

He should donate his game check to charity.
