What should we know about the 2008 Texans? Evidently, their defense stinks: they currently rank 30th in net yards passing per attempt allowed and 24th in rush yards per attempt allowed. But of course that doesn't mean the Viking offense is primed for a good day: after seeing Adrian Peterson shut down by the Saints, the Viking offense muff up against the Lions but then score 41 points against the Bears, I really have no idea what the Viking offense will do.
Pat Williams and Kevin Williams
Regardless of when (or is it if?) the Williams are suspended, the rumor has already marred the season for me. Unless there is an official NFL announcement stating that there was some misunderstanding and there is no possibility of a suspension, I'm just going to be waiting for it to come, expecting it to ruin the season. And the Packer game is next week--if there's no suspension this week, will there be one next week? It's hanging over everything.
The weekend is an hour longer this weekend
Human beings are bored and need something to occupy our time with, so we arbitrarily switch our time twice a year.
Return to Thunderdome
I'm going to the Viking game with my dad this weekend. This means while watching the Viking game, I'm unlikely to see a single political advertisement. This weekend is going to be overwhelming, and then Wednesday, when you start watching TV and just see commercials for pizza and cell phones and cars, it feels rather liberating.
