Why did I watch it - NFL Classic

17 posts in this topic

Last night on the NFL channel they rebroadcast the 1998 Vikes - Atlanta game. I can't believe how much the Vikings dominated that game but lost. Also, just as Randall Cunningham was ready to take the knee I had to shut it off because I couldn't watch it again. I might need to go into therapy to get that out of my mind again.

You are right Rick. I sort of forgot how that offense performed. Quite a difference compared to watching a Vikes offense now. It seemed like every pass thrown in 1998 went over 15 yards. Now you are lucky to see a pass from a Viking quarterback to travel 10 yards. I wonder what Adrian could do with that style of a passing game. Robert Smith looked like Walter Payton back there with all of the defensive backs 15 yards off of the line of scrimmage.

I would never be able to watch that game. If I came across that, I would have have to turn it fast or end up in Theropy!.

I am reminded of that Giants game everyday. My boss who is not a sports fan, saved the sports section after the 41-0 loss. It sits in the corner of his office. He says he will burn once the Vikings make the Superbowl. I keep telling him that the paper is getting old and is a fire hazard in his office.

Can you believe it has been 32 years since our last Superbowl? And I do not see it anytime soon with Chili and T-Jack.

I was at that Atlanta game in 98 and for the second in my life I feared for my life leaving the stadium. It was ROUGH TO BE THERE LIVE. Funny thing as we approached the dome we could hear the noise from 3 blocks away, 45 minutes b-4 the game started. On the way out you could hear a pin drop on the way out and NO ONE LOOKED HAPPY.

G.C.

Was that the Vikings' catastrophic moment from which they have never had success? Or can I go all the way back to the Hail Mary?

If the Vikes had a decent coach in 98 they wouldn't have lost any games. I was in Orlando at Universal Studios when they played the Giants. I remember seeing Giant fans everywhere and I was telling them they were going to get trounced. After the game I couldn't even show my face.

They didn't loose to the Giants in 98. They lost to the Bucks during the season and to the Falcons at the NFC championchip.

I think you are thinking of 2000.

I realize that. The posts above were talking about when they lost to the Giants in the playoffs also. I remember the 98 season it was like the end of the world when they lost to Atlanta.

Chili should watch all the highlight films from the '98 season and he would see what a kicka-- offense is like. Adrian off tackle left for 4 yards, Adrian off tackle right for 3 yards and a Tahi screen for 2 yards is not kick-ss.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
