I have a lot of really weird dreams, and a lot of my really weird dreams involve the Vikings. From now on, I'll share my crazy Viking dreams on this blog.
Last night I dreamed that Tarvaris Jackson was the quarterback and Cris Carter was the wide receiver for the Vikings. When the Vikes lined up, on Cris Carter's side of the field there were just two defenders there: an old couple wearing regular clothes. Cris Carter went back to chat with Jackson a bit. Then when Carter went back to his side (actually it was sort of the slot), and a 60 year old woman was covering him, he just took off on a go route. Jackson heaved the ball deep into the end zone. Carter actually didn't beat the 60 year old woman covering him as badly as I thought he would--she sort of stuck with him. And Jackson did make the throw, but it was way to the opposite side of the end zone--just a really inaccurate throw. But it was deep enough with enough air that Carter was able to cross the field and catch the ball easily and nicely. So I was happy about the Vikings scoring a touchdown, and I was happy about the long completion. But I also couldn't believe the defense chose to cover Cris Carter with a 60 year old woman. I was also vexed about the inaccurate pass Jackson threw: sure it was a completion for a long touchdown, but it was a really bad throw, just obviously off target. It made me think that Jackson isn't really going to be able to make throws in the future.
