Preseason Game 3: Vikings Defeat Texans 17-10

Favre River Dances To Victory

Schism - Smism! Everyone River Dance!

Schism (skiz′ em)
1. A split or division in an organized group or society, or a church, as the result of difference of opinion, of doctrine.
2. The act of causing or trying to cause a split or division.
3. Any of the sects, parties, etc. formed by such a split
4. Brett Favre

When you hear the name Brett Favre, certain words come to mind. MVP, Winner, Competitor, Packers, Circus, Media whore. This week we add another. Schism! Rumors from Viking camp report a rift, or schism if you will, between the Viking players on who they believe the starting quarterback should be. I must admit, I believe a schism does exist. Not in the locker room of the team, but in the minds of the fans.

In tonight’s game, Favre went 13-18 for 142 yards and a TD pass and zero interceptions. End of byline. Show a few hundred pictures of Favre smiling on the field, on the sideline, and after the game. Toss a few accolades on how quickly he has absorbed the offense and taken over as team leader making the Vikings a legitimate super bowl contender. However, if these were Tarvaris Jackson’s numbers, and Favre was not on the team, his byline would have gone something like the following.

Tarvaris Jackson commanded the first team offense tonight completing 13 passes out of 18 for 142 yards and one TD and no interceptions. However, Jackson looked tentative at times resulting in several sacks and misreads. Jackson’s timing was off as well as he missed a wide open Percy Harvin in the end zone and Bobby Wade in the middle. Jackson must maintain his consistency, become more comfortable with the offense, read the defense better, and make less mistakes if he wants to be considered the starter. And what was Jackson thinking throwing that stupid ass crack back block.

Do you see the difference? The schism?

I understand Favre has only been in purple for two weeks and the more he plays, the better he will become. Supposedly! And so far, the Favre euphoria has everyone anxious for a super bowl appearance. But what happens if he falters, if the team falters. If he throws an interception resulting in a loss the schism will increase. You don’t have to be a psychic to know that this season will be a roller coaster ride from hell. (Same as it ever was)

The Vikings actually played a game last night. They defeated the Texans 17-10 in a hard hitting, emotionally charged game. Both teams were hitting hard and Favre’s illegal crack back block didn’t help alleviate tensions any. Both teams got out relatively injury free except for quarterback Schaub who pulled up gimpy on a scramble. He returned and finished out the half however. Wilson also looked to be OK after he left the field.

Changing gears, Adrian Peterson has established that the additional weight gain did not slow him down as he raced through the defense on the first play of the game and took the ball to the house for a 75 yard touchdown. Will the presence of Favre help Peterson or perhaps will the presence of Peterson help Favre. Viking Thunder believes both.

Anticipation, Is keepin’ me waitin’…
Percy Harvin is just waiting to explode. Dare I say he has that Randy Moss mystique surrounding him. Every time he touches the ball, anticipation swells that he could take the ball all the way. I am waiting for the quick slant to Harvin in full stride and watch him take it all the way.

Rice and Shiancoe hauled in some very tough catches Monday but Bobby Wade, well, he is on the bubble to lose his job.

Chester Taylor! All he does is execute positive plays when he is on the field. He would be a starter for many teams. Taylor is so fluid coming out of the backfield and has the hands of a receiver and the shiftiness of a scat back. He turned a simple safety valve completion into a 28 yard touch down run with anifty move at the 10 yard faking the defenders on his way to the end zone.

Special teams played exceptionally well for a third straight game. I know, it’s only pre-season, but the coverage and containment has been very good. The plus yardage will only help our defense and set up our offense. If special teams can maintain in the regular season, it will help the Vikings win several games.

Jared Allen is worth every penny he earns. Pat Willaims didn’t miss a beat. Or a sandwich. Winnfield is at all pro form. Henderson, Greenway, and Leber are the best trio of linebackers in the league.

The only concerns are the deep threat and penalties. The Vikings need to curtain the penalties as it stalled several drives Monday that were potential point scoring drives. As for the long ball, Favre attempted only one deep pass and it was way off target. I know Berrian is the main deep threat, but Sidney Rice and Percy harvin are as well. Is it Favre’s arm, or merely waiting for Berrian to get healthy?

Back to the schism. The Vikings have four quarterbacks on the roster. one of them will most likely get a visit from the Turk. Perhaps they will try and trade either Jackson or Rosenfels. Sage has a fresh 3 year 9 million contract which is very reasonable. Jackson is playing in his option year. Booty is the forgotten man. He didn’t even get to sniff the field last night.

This coming Friday, the Vikings host the Cowboys for the final pre-season game. I would like to see Favre play at least a series, he needs the work to get him timing down. Perhaps Sage and Jackson will be showcased for potential trade bait putting an end to the so-called schism in the locker room over who should start.

    I thought schisms only happened in religion. Oh, duh, that’s right, Vikings Football is a religion!

      Bless me father for I have sinned. I have been a Viking fan for almost 40 years now and am still waiting for Moses Childress to lead us to the promised land.

    The Vikings are looking good in preseason play. I agree with you on Harvin, he is one step away from breaking it big. The special teams may be special this year after all with their coverage skills and Harvin returning kicks.
    Skol Vikings!

    • LOTGK said

      I have a feeling Booty is on the chopping block. Favre has been getting knocked around in the last few series he played in. That does not bode well for an entire season.
