Kevin Seifert makes the argument the Vikings should pursue Jay Cutler. That's an easy argument--under what circumstances shouldn't a quarterback-weak team acquire a 25 year old that just threw for 4,500 yards and 25 touchdowns? The question is can they get him.
Last night I dreamed that the Vikings were in the NFC Championship game, and for some reason I wasn't watching. When I checked the score, it said 44-0, and I started dancing around saying "The Vikings are going to the Super Bowl!" Then I saw that it was the Denver Broncos that had just won the AFC Championship game, and the NFC Championship game was still going on ("I guess we aren't going to get Cutler," I thought). The Vikings were down in the fourth to the 49ers but had just scored a touchdown and two-point conversion. Then for some reason they were getting the ball on a kickoff, down by two, and kick returner Chester Taylor got a terrific block from Teri Hatcher and scored a touchdown. I worried that the Vikings had left too much time on the clock...then my wife woke me up.
