A note to the Minnesota Vikings – YOU CANNOT COMMIT 5 TURNOVERS (fumbling six times, losing three, and throwing two interceptions) AND EXPECT TO WIN THE GAME, NO MATTER HOW GOOD YOUR OTHER STATS ARE!!!

Over all, it was a great game.  If the Vikings hadn’t of turned the ball over five times, they’d be heading to Super Bowl XLIV and not the Saints.

Oh well.  Only 231 days until the Vikings take the field during week 1 of the 2010 Regular Season.
