Over in Minnesota, things continue to get worse for the Vikings, which normally would be great.
That’s not the case, at the moment, however.
In addition to the giant hole in the roof of their shitty stadium and concerns surrounding the availability of TCF Bank Stadium, where the Vikings are trying to host their Monday night game, this week, the Vikings have lost quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to injured reserve.
TJack got shelved with a turf toe after making his first start of the season, on Monday. The Vikings normal shitty quarterback, Brett Favre, continues to be sidelined with a shoulder injury, meaning those losers may have to turn to rookie Joe Webb, this week.
The Vikings also signed Patrick Ramsey, who didn’t play a down of football this season during stints in Jacksonville and Miami and has never passed for more than 2,200 yards in an NFL season.
Under normal circumstances, I’d be perfectly happy if the Vikings went 0-16 and their entire roster ended up on injured reserve or in prison, but this isn’t the typical week.
The Vikings host the Chicago Bears, this week.
If the Green Bay Packers have any shot of winning the NFC North, they’re going to need the Vikings to beat the Bears.
While Jackson has played like his usual shitty self this season — a 63.9 rating, three touchdowns vs. four interceptions — he still gives the Vikings a better shot against the Bears than Ramsey or Webb.
Unfortunately, he’s probably played his last snap for the Vikings. Jackson is in a contract year and if the Vikings loved him that much, they wouldn’t have begged Favre and his hairy balls to come back for the 2010 season.
