Why did I watch it - NFL Classic

Recommended Posts

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.

We got revenge 2 years ago killing the giants 41 to 17 but yes that 41-0 game really hurt.

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.

    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
