It's just hard to imagine. Joe Buck is calling this play the best he's ever been a part for an NFL game.

I'm no fan of Joe Buck. But his call on this play was absolutely perfect. He minimized his words. He showed the extreme excitement the moment deserved. He let the pictures do the talking. He let the crowd noise do the talking. It was masterful.

I must give some more credit -- Troy Aikman. Not a peep while the play was happening. Nothing immediately following. He knew his role, and he knew his place. Only when it was time to analyze did Aikman speak up. That was truly pro.

Compare that to Paul Allen and Pete Bersich. Granted, it's radio, and you have to be more descriptive. But everything was so ... contrived and out of control at the same time. Allen set up his Minneapolis Miracle phrase way too early, and too many times. Bersich just kept screaming over the top of him. It was awful. Allen seemed more interested in getting his Minneapolis Miracle comment in there than actually calling the play, and Bersich ... just SHUT UP for a half second.

Want to hear how a professional radio guy handles it? Listen to the call of Kevin Harlan and Trent Green on Westwood One. Notice how Green stays quiet until it's time for him to speak. THAT'S how you do radio.

Sorry guys. I'm just not a Paul Allen fan. I think he's arrogant and very much in love with himself.

That felt odd. Are you sure he wasn't talking about Erin Rodgers?

This is hilarious. Saints and Sean Payton trying to whine about replay.
New Orleans Times Picayune wrote:New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton made two questionable challenges in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but he said the team didn't have its full access to replay at the time.

Based on the way the game played out, losing the two timeouts didn't prove to be catastrophic, and there wasn't a play later in the game that the Saints would've logically challenged.

Still, it was surprising to see Payton drop the red flag in two ill-advised spots, and he said after the game that the staffers assigned to watch the replay were in a tough spot.

"Our monitor was down," Payton said after the game. "Our booth was the only booth that didn't have a feed to it. So, you just got to go with your gut, and fortunately, it wasn't an issue with the timeouts."
The best part about all this is that it was revealed later that the Vikings had the same issue at the same time, which means his "our booth was the only booth that didn't have a feed to it" comment was yet another lie.

My favorite line: "it was surprising to see Payton drop the red flag in two ill-advised spots." Surprising? Really? As if Sean Payton is some genius head coach. Of course he made two emotional challenges. It's what immature brats do.

I was too pumped at the time, but my eyes have watered a bit after watching the play a few times.

I didn't full out ball.

Just Tears. In fact, every time I think about this win, my eyes start to water a bit.

My younger brother and I flew in and had such a quintessential MN time it sort of seems like a fairy tale--snow falling, super genuinely kind people going out of their way to escort us to the stadium, the post game celebrations like the line of US Bank workers who were giving high fives to people in the halls on their way out of the stadium, many of us with tears in our eyes, to the long embraces with total strangers all night across the city-- it was all a HUGE reminder that I absolutely LOVE MN and the people of that great state.

Complete euphoria. This team has something special going on. Buckle up!
They do. I'm glad you had such a perfect trip.

Even here in Chicago, I think people sense there's something special about this Vikings team. I have a Vikings leather jacket (I've been wearing it for years) and over the past few weeks, everywhere I go people are wishing me good luck, telling me they think (or hope) the Vikings will win it all, etc. It's all very genuine. Yesterday, I was cleaning snow off my car and an SUV stopped in the street alongside me. The driver rolled down the window, leaned out and asked me if I was still on Cloud 9 after Sunday's game. He was all smiles, congratulated me on the Vikes win, said the Vikings were due for a win like that and said he hopes the Vikes win it all.

It's all very friendly and it adds to the fun. I can only imagine the kind of camaraderie being felt in Minnesota right now!
Thanks funny. I watched the game at a Vikings bar in Chicago

It happened. I was in the 10th row right behind him. He turned around, looked at us, and did a mocking Skol Chant with 0:25 left after the field goal. Then he got what he deserved.‏

My favorite thought of this week is that Sean Payton is having so much fun mocking the fans that he isn't involved in game planning for his defense. He could be watching the Vikings lineup, moving his players around, giving them last second instructions, etc. But instead he's being a jerk. Karma is a BIRCH.

Ha ha! I love it. Obviously, auto-correct has a sense of humor. Karma kind of IS a Birch Tree if you think about it long enough. Don't peel the bark off, kids!

I also love that in that photo he actually has the play card in his hand while doing the SKOL chant. I suppose it's the offensive one, but I like to imagine that the defensive play calls are right there in those mocking hands of his. :lol:

If Mike Zimmer or any Vikings coach ever did something like that, I would want him fired. What an arrogant think to do.
