1. One down.
As the saying goes, you can’t win the last four if you don’t win the first one of the last four. Or something like that.
I gave my call to arms on last week’s Bump & Run, and while I delivered it in a wholly ridiculous manner (as I’m wont to do with these things), I fully believe everything that was said. The Vikings have an agreeable schedule the last quarter of the season, they’ve shown they can put together a winning streak, and if they do finish 10-6, they have a good shot to make the playoffs. Now, part one of that four-part plan is accomplished (yeah, it was probably the easiest part, too, but you can only play who they put in front of you). Up next is part two against the Colts at home, another very doable task. The season isn’t over.
