Also, if we played the Seahawks ten times last year, we would have won 6 of them.

The Vikings set the single season record at the time in 1998. They scored 556 points in the season. I still think Denver would have beat them.

The point is you are a confirmed moron. A pig person.

I was not afraid of the Vikings

Mind, I was more afraid of them than I was of the Falcons, but it didn't amount to much.

There is no need for name calling. I think Chrissy was just confused. I was confused, until I read the "Moss and Carter" comment. I think she thought the OP was referring to LAST YEAR'S Vikings team. Last year's Vikings team WAS pathetic...

Dumbass Viking fan who doesn't understand the reason the '98 Broncos D was down near the bottom in passing yards is because we always had a big lead so other teams were throwing every down.

Well at least you provided an evidence based argument like I did.
It is in response to a Broncos fan saying something along the lines of "your delusional." The fact of the matter is that the Vikings didn't make it so you do not need to use "evidence" that never could possibly exist when the simple fact is the Broncos actually made it all the way and the Vikings disappointed everyone. Hell, I remember wanting to play the Vikings in the Superbowl. They were clearly dominant in the NFC that year, and I liked the idea of taking down the best in back to back years. That being said, they didn't get to the dance, therefore they weren't the better team when it counted.

I enjoyed seeing Dan Reeves go into his vein-bulging furious mode on the sideline during the NFCCG at Minnesota that year. Took the playsheet away from his OC, told him to STFU and stand aside, drove the team to victory through sheer force of will.

People love to bag on Reeves, but there was many times there's no way the Broncos win without his intensity on the sideline.

I'll agree with that. And just look what that super scary Offense did for us. Viking fans should take note.

Well we could of beat the seahawks if 100 percent healthy. Could of beat the 49ers in 89 in Montana went the route of Barret Robbins the night before the SB. Wait Young would have had to go with him but it could of happened.

That's the same thing that I was thinking. They couldn't get close to 40 at home against a defense that couldn't stop the Broncos. If I'm remembering that NFC Championship Game correctly, the Vikings got out to a 20-7 first quarter lead and looked like they were about to blow out the Falcons. But then the Falcons hold them to 7 points for the rest of the game. That's three quarters plus overtime. And that same offense, who was playing at home, was supposed to go to a neutral field and beat a defense that didn't allow a TD in the playoffs heading into the Super Bowl? The Falcons had a really good offense that year and they couldn't do anything against the Broncos defense.

I'm really sick of hearing about a team that choked and didn't show up to the big game.

I'm thinking back to that year, and one thing that pissed me off was that as soon as the Broncos lost one game, everybody jumped off the bandwagon and started acting like the Vikings were the best thing ever. As we saw, the Vikings were frauds.

The defense gave up two touchdowns that entire postseason. A garbage time touchdown to the Falcons and after a blocked punt the Jets punched it in from the one yard line.
