Good Morning Gjallarhorn Episode 028 – In The Raw
Good morning Horners! Well, I hope it is a good one even though the Minnesota Vikings lost to the New Orleans Saints. Ted, Drew and I got together immediately after the game to talk about what we all witnessed. Was it just us, or did you see the motivation leave the Vikings like air escaping a balloon, right after the Adam Thielen fumble?
Both Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs had games with over 100 yards caught and a TD each. Captain Kirk Cousins threw for over 350 yards, and the defense held Drew Brees to only 120 yards even though Xavier Rhodes and Anthony Barr being out with injuries. Looking at the box score stats, you would have thought the Vikes won by two touchdowns… but you would be wrong.
The Vikings lost 30-20 at home against the second-best team in the NFC. It definitely had early playoff implications, especially when you think of the upcoming games. The Vikes have the Lions at home, their bye, a road game against the Bears, back home against the Packers, then a road trip that will crisscross the country going out to the Patriots and then out west to visit the Seahawks. We will definitely know by the end of that stretch just how good this team actually is. It doesn’t look like they are meeting pre-season expectations, for sure.
Watch the show and see the questioning of Laquon Treadwell, John DeFilippo [or is it DeFiloppo?] and his odd play calling at times, clock management versus play execution, and the other things that had us wondering why this game didn’t go better. We now will look forward to Mathew Stafford and his Lions heading to US Bank, where they have yet to lose. Oh, what a great way to start your week [sarcasm].

As always, enjoy the watch!
