I'm so mixed up, Ima deny your denial, and not be sure what it means.

It still feels too good to be true. 

 

I keep bracing myself for the league to pull a post-game Tuck Rule and give the win to the Saints by invalidating the walk-off touchdown based on some obscure provision of the rulebook that has never been invoked in the history off the sport.

 

But until that happens, onto Philly, that's a game we should win.

Everson Griffen has given possibly the greatest post-game interview in history. "Oh my G- ... that's unbelie-... I'm like... I'm happy? .... I was sad?.... now I'm.... WOWWW."

But that was the most amazing finish to a Vikes game ever, right? Especially considering the baggage they brought into the game, the path before them, and how they had squandered a great first half.

Yeah I know what you mean.But it's fun!

 

I wonder what it's like for Pats fans.Do they enjoy the divisional round victories?Or do they get bored watching the Pats beat up on some crappy team in what is effectively a scrimmage every year?

I've been thinking to myself "So do they rip our hearts out next week in Philly, or do they wait until they are on the world's biggest stage on their home field for maximum effect?"

Without a doubt. That was the most incredible ending to a Vikings game I've ever seen!

Apparently it was the first walkoff td in playoff history. Guess it would be hard to top that.

In regulation yes.But it's happened 3 or 4 times in OT, Tebow for sure did it to the Steelers.

The Saints have a new "Most Disappointing Loss."

The Vikes gotta play a full game though.... they also only played for one half v. Chicago. This won't work in Philly. This seems to be more of a problem with the offense, mind you, and likely it's the play calling.

 

Plus, the offensive line needs to be better.... The Philly D is even tougher than the Saints D, and likely the Philly game will be a cold, low-scoring game where Keenum won't be able to toss interceptions and get away with it.

I still can't believe what I saw last night. I'm used to having my heart crushed.  What is this emotion I'm feeling? Think I've watched the play on loop for far too long last night.
