Game 13: Vikings Defeat Lions 20-16

Posted by LOTGK on December 7, 2008

Today’s game is proudly brought to you by Starcaps,
Making Sure The Vikings Miss The Playoffs!

Today’s Viking Thunder update should be titled Viking Conspiracy. The reason is Star Caps, the diuretic supplement that 7 NFL players (Including two Vikings) took to lose weight. The story was around four weeks ago as an NFL source leaked out the players names that were in question.

According to NFL rules, an NFL player is responsible for what he puts in his body. A list of banned substances are available from the NFL and a hotline is also available. The NFL has a zero tolerance policy on steroid and substance abuse. The Vikings players were suspended for taking the diuretic bumetamide, an ingredient in Star Caps but not listed on the label.

However, the NFL failed to notify the players union that bumetamide was an ingredient in Star Caps. The NFL knew this since 2006 but never said anything. Until now.

Four weeks ago the Vikings were not in contention for the playoffs sporting a losing record. Through the course of those four weeks, the Vikings won three of four games and are now in sole possession of first place with three games to go.

The NFL also has a strict policy not to release the names of the players being investigated until a decision is finalized. The NFL violated their own rules allowing the players names to be revealed before the investigation was finished. But, absolutely no punishment or fine has been issued toward the NFL.

The Vikings defeated the Lions 20-16 in Detroit today leaving the Lions 0-13 but positioning the Vikings at the top of the division at 8-5. More significantly, 8 wins is the most coach Brad Childress has won in his first two seasons with the Vikings. With three game left, he has the chance to record a winning season.

A tale of two cities. Gus Frerotte started the game and went 7-10 for 70 yards and two interceptions. Late in the second quarter, he was injured and did not return in the second half. Tarvaris Jackson, who was benched after week two in favor for Frerotte, was thrust into duty.

Let me tell you, I was very worried about that. Not that Frerotte is putting up Joe Montana numbers, but he was more productive that Jackson last season and the first two games this year. Not to mention that the Vikings trailed at the start of the third quarter against the winless Lions hungry for a win.

Tarvaris Jackson came in and had a very productive game. Jackson’s stats were 8-10 for 105 yards and one TD and no interceptions. His rating was 145. He made one errant pass, throwing up a Hail Mary pass when pressured. The ball fell to the ground but could have very easily intercepted. For this performance, Jackson gets the game ball.

What does the Detroit defense do differently against Adrian Peterson (23 carries 102 yards) that cause him to fumble so much. Three in game one and four times today. I am sure the Cardinals, Falcons, and Giants are studying tape on how they do it as well.

Tight End Shiancoe had 5 catches for 65 yards and one TD and no dropped passes. Two weeks in a row. He is becoming a big target for the Vikings.

Jared Allen is old school. I believe he would attempt to play even if he had a broken leg. He sacked Culpepper twice today, forced a fumble, and pressured all day. He had a cheap shot on his knee today and got up and limped over to continue the action with the Lion player.

Do the Vikings have a punt returner? Allison and Berrian are not return men. The Vikins may as well rush eleven on punts.

This is the second time Daunte Culpepper played against his former team. The first time was when he was with the Raiders and today with the Lions. I wish him well in the future and hope he stays the Lions quarterback in the future.

The next week will be an important one with the NFL ruling on the players involved in the bumetamide debacle and if the suspensions will be enforced. I see it getting really nasty as the Williamses have a case and may win against the NFL.

Although, Donald Trump also won a lawsuit against the NFL when he was the money behind the now defunct USFL league. The courts awarded Trump one dollar.

    Who would of thought going into game 14 with the Vikings at 8-5 and in first place in the division, we would have a QB controversy.


    Did Gus really get hurt or was that part of a plan? Meaning, Did Childress discuss with Gus if he were having a bad game to fake an injury to insert Jackson? After all, the play Gus got hurt on, he was making a tackle from the interception he threw. It didn’t look like a bad hit on Gus.

    Does Childress announce the starter early? Or does he make the Cards wait and speculate and prepare for both Gus and Tarvaris?

    Can Tarvaris maintain his game production? Remember, they were playing the winless Lions. Not a stellar team or defense.
