At the Metrodome, you can text the stadium security to alert them if anything is disrupting your enjoyment of the game. I don't know if they could do anything, though, about Tarvaris Jackson disrupting everybody's enjoyment of the game.
All summer we heard that the Vikings were a quarterback away from being a Super Bowl contender. And today we know that is true: the Vikings are not a serious championship contender because of the quarterback position. If the Vikings don't make a significant attempt to improve the quarterback position for 2009, then the Metrodome may not sell out any games. Without improved quarterback play, we're just playing around watching this team. It's fun to watch a dominating defense, and it's fun to watch Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor. It's fun when the Metrodome energy is as wonderful as it was today. But it is just laughs. There's no Super Bowl in the future without major improvement at quarterback.
The Viking defense played admirably against the Eagles. The defense is not fully exculpated for this loss: too often they had the Eagles pinned in difficult situations and allowed Donovan McNabb time to find wide open receivers in the middle of the field. But through most of the game, the defense allowed only field goals, forced a couple of turnovers, and provided the offense with some solid positions. But the Vikings spent most of the second half down by just two points, and couldn't muster a field goal drive. And that's primarily because they don't have a passing game.
The Vikings had a home playoff game, and the defense allowed only one touchdown. And they lost. Brad Childress is an offense-minded coach, and his team lost a home playoff game because it didn't score after halftime. The quarterback of Childress's choice was 15 for 35 and had an interception returned for a touchdown. It is a distressing loss, and a loss devoid of much optimism for the future.
