Vikings Still Facing Blackout; Jared Allen Resorts to Begging

The Minnesota Vikings front office has been sweating bullets all week. They are trying like crazy to sell the remaining tickets for Sunday’s NFC Wild Card game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

At the start of the week, there were some 20,000 tickets left. By Wednesday, they were down to 11,000. The NFL’s blackout deadline of Thursday was extended, and the Vikings were down to 3,100 or so tickets by Friday.

They have until 3:30pm Central time Saturday to sell what’s left. If they do it, they’ll have accomplished it without leaning on a corporate buyout of the remaining seats. Here’s Vikings vice president of sales Steve Lacroix:
Knowing that they’re in a bit of a pickle, the Vikings called on resident loudmouth and cheapshot artist Jared Allen to, well, beg for help.Continue Reading

Behind Enemy Lines: Talking Wild Card With Eagles and Vikings Bloggers

Filed under: Eagles, Vikings, NFC East, NFC North, NFL Fans I would’ve been happier if the Vikes hadn’t needed a 10-point comeback against the Giants’ second-stringers to win their last game. I think they’re shaky. I think Tarvaris Jackson’s performance was a bit of a mirage, since a lot of it came against some bad pass defenses. I get nervous every time Adrian Peterson touches the ball now, because he keeps fumbling. I don’t think they’re exactly going into the playoffs with momentum.

I’d feel a lot better if the Eagles had won that “must win” game against the Redskins two weeks ago. These guys are clearly playing some good football right now, but I still think they’re short a couple of guys needed to make a Super Bowl run.Continue Reading

Texans 31, Bears 24: At Least This Game Made Eagles Fans Happy

Filed under: Bears, Eagles, TexansReally, there is not much to say about this game. The Cowboys and Bucs lost, but the Bears spit the bit too. The Texans ended up finishing the season 8-8, same as last year. With the Bears’ and Bucs’ losses, the Eagles made the playoffs after their destruction of the Cowboys.

Bears started the game with a lot of energy and got an early 10-0 lead. But FanHouse’s resident Bears fan, Matt Snyder, pegged the problem for the Bears before the game. (And for emphasis, he said it here too).

He had concerns that the Bears wouldn’t be able to handle Texans standout wide receiver, Andre Johnson. Johnson got two touchdowns for the day, and ended the season as the top receiver for receptions and yards (just beaten out for yards per game by Steve Smith).

Texans running back Steve Slaton struggled early with dropping balls and quarterback protection, but ended up finishing the game strong. He ended up getting 1,282 yards for the season to have the most for rookie running backs in a class with some amazing ones.Continue Reading

Wild Card Week Preview

With the playoffs less than a week away, here is everything you need to know about Wild Card Weekend.

Atlanta Falcons at Arizona Cardinals

— Saturday, Jan. 3, 4:30 PM EST
— University of Phoenix Stadium
— Atlanta, in a must-win against the Rams in Week 17 for a potential two seed, took care of business behind running back Michael Turner. The first-year Falcon had 208 yards and a touchdown in the 31-27 win over the Rams to secure a playoff bid. Arizona struggled down the stretch but won a lagging NFC West division that only had one team with a winning record.
— None
— Atlanta - 4-1. Arizona - 2-3.
— Atlanta taking down a hot Minnesota team in Week 16, 24-17. Arizona beat Dallas in Week 6, 30-24.
– For Atlanta, it is the rookie Matt Ryan. When the play-caller has a quarterback rating of 94 or higher, the Falcons are 8-1. For Arizona, it is the running game. With Edgerrin James being pushed out as the top back, Tim Hightower and J.J. Arrington have been asked to carry the load. Kurt Warner and his great receiving core will get theirs, so it is up to the running game to balance their offensive attack.
– In terms of least intimidating stadiums to play in, the one in Phoenix has to rack up. Living in the area, I know what Cardinals fans come to expect, and if the team falls behind 10-0 early, you can bet the Card hopefuls will be basically saying to one another, “No surprise here.” For Ryan, a playoff game is a different beast, but he has a pretty favorable match-up to get his feet wet. I think the Falcons go to Glendale and beat the Cardinals.

Vikings Just a Little Short of a Sellout for Wild Card Weekend Against Eagles

The Minnesota Vikings completed a stirring rally from a 0-2 start Sunday by winning the NFC North. The division title was clinched on a dramatic last-second field goal by kicker Ryan Longwell.

For the success-starved supporters of this organization, seeing them clinch their first playoff berth in four years and win their first division title since 2000 had to be an exhilarating experience. It’s the kind of experience that leaves the paying customer wanting more. There’s no question that such a moment can lead to a huge surge in ticket sales for the upcoming home playoff game.

Unfortunately, the Vikings are a tad short of a sellout for Sunday’s game with the Philadelphia Eagles. Can’t be a big deal, though. I mean, the Vikings needed an extension from the NFL to avoid a blackout of their Week Three game against Carolina because they were 1,400 or so tickets short.

They can’t be that far off this time, right?Continue Reading

Williams Wall Should Be Back for Eagles
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 30th 2008 8:01AM by JJ Cooper (author feed)
Filed under: Eagles, Vikings, NFC North, NFL PlayoffsA broken shoulder blade sounds like a pretty severe injury, but Vikings defensive tackle Pat Williams is trying to prove that it’s just a three-week speed bump for him.

Williams is planning to be back on the field Sunday when the Vikings face the Eagles in the first round of the playoffs. According to Big Pat, he no longer has any pain, although he has to show that he’s regained the strength in the shoulder.

Even if Williams’ isn’t at 100 percent, he’s one player who can help the team simply by getting on the field. Williams is big enough that even with one arm, he’ll help clog the middle and force the Eagles to junk their running game. Williams’ return would be especially important because there is a good chance Minnesota will be without starting defensive end Ray Edwards, who injured his knee against the Giants.

If Edwards is out, the Vikings will have to rely on Otis Grigsby and Brian Robison. Robison is a better pass rusher, while Grigsby may be a little bit better run defender, but neither of them can equal Edwards’ all-around ability.

Separating Playoff Contenders From Pretenders

Filed under: AZ Cardinals, Chargers, Colts, Dolphins, Eagles, Falcons, Giants, Panthers, Ravens, Steelers, Titans, Vikings, NFL PlayoffsWe all know that NFL records are not always created equal, and life isn’t fair.

That explains why the 11-5 Patriots are sitting at home while the 8-8 Chargers are preparing for the playoffs. But now that the playoff pairings have been set, it is pretty easy to get a quick-and-dirty look at which teams were tested during the regular season and which teams skated into the playoffs thanks to very forgiving schedules.

To get a better look at how the playoff teams matched up, I compiled each playoff team’s record against the other playoff teams. It’s a look that has some flaws — a win against the 8-8 Chargers counts while a win against the Patriots doesn’t, but it is a very good, and quick, way to see how many tough games each team played during the regular season.

So which teams earned their way and which ones snuck in? Well, the Dolphins shouldn’t be too proud, while the Eagles didn’t exactly back their way in, even if they had to win on Sunday to snag the NFC’s last wild-card spot.Continue Reading

Thanks to Buccaneers and Bears, Cowboys-Eagles Turns Into a Playoff Game

Filed under: Bears, Buccaneers, Cowboys, EaglesComing into the day, the Dallas Cowboys knew if they beat the Eagles this afternoon they would be in the playoffs. Philadelphia knew that they needed a lot of help during the early games to know if they had anything to play for.

They do.

Thanks to Tampa Bay’s monumental meltdown and Chicago losing in Houston, the Philadelphia Eagles are a win away from the playoffs. Heck, this makes the Cowboys-Eagles a de-facto postseason game.

Now things are really looking up for Philly. Dallas has lost their last eight season finales and has lost eight of eleven in the City of Brotherly Love. There is also this little thing about Tony Romo and the Cowboys coming up short in playoff games. Since this is a win-or-go-home atmosphere for both teams, it will be interesting to see how Romo performs.

The winner of the Cowboys-Eagles game will travel to play Minnesota next weekend.

Vikings Win NFC North on Last-Second Field Goal, Will Host Cowboys-Eagles Winner

Filed under: Cowboys, Eagles, Vikings, NFL PlayoffsThe Minnesota Vikings won the NFC North on this Ryan Longwell 50-yard field goal as time expired:

Minnesota didn’t exactly set the world on fire, needing a last-second field goal to beat a Giants team that was basically phoning it in as it rested its top players for the playoffs. But when the Vikings needed quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to deliver down the stretch, he did: Jackson hit Bernard Berrian for a 54-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Vikings fans have to feel good about that.

Next weekend the Vikings will host the winner of this afternoon’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.

Romo, Again, Comes Up Small in Big Games

Dec 28th 2008 6:06PM by Sportz Assassin (author feed)
Filed under: Cowboys, EaglesCowboys haters love to point out that Tony Romo doesn’t perform well on the big stage. His signature moment in this regard was the fumbled hold on a field goal attempt that would have beaten the Seattle Seahawks in the 2006 playoffs. For all the wins and successes he has had as a young quarterback, he has nothing to show for it.

So it should surprise no one that, as I type this, the Cowboys are down 34-3 to the Philadelphia Eagles. The latest score came off a Romo fumble that was returned by Chris Clemons 73 yards for a touchdown.

Earlier in the game, the Cowboys were driving towards midfield when Romo threw an interception. Philadelphia would capitalize on the turnover by scoring a touchdown and building a 24-3 lead.

This is a virtual playoff game as the winner will face Minnesota next week in the wild card round of the playoffs.

As I type this, Romo is 13-for-24 for 91 yards with no touchdowns and two turnovers.

UPDATE: Thanks to a Marion Barber fumble, the Eagles now lead 41-3

UPDATE II: Romo turns the ball over for the third time. He has the ball stripped as he scrambled for a first down.
