NFL Season Opener
Last night the Saints began there title defense against the Vikings. They were down in the Louisiana Superdome for this game. Everyone was hyping it up as the big rematch of the NFC Championship game. The game ended 14-9 in what actually turned out to be a defensive battle. Me personally, I was extremely disappointed in how the game turned out. Brett Farve notoriously is known for slow starts in the first game of the year. This had nothing to it though. A few big plays here and there but nothing of actual fun to watch. The Vikings has no real big play makers due to Percy Harvin being out much of camp due to Migraine headaches and Sidney Rice due to hip surgery. The Vikings looked way out of sync and were very rusty. The only good thing that came out of the game was that Adrian Peterson did not fumble the ball and he led the game in rushing with 87 yards rushing. The only Vikings turnover came from Bretts interception to Vilma. The Saints looked like the team from last year. Any time they wanted to throw the ball they could at will. Brees was on target and made no ill advised passes. The Vikings defense held them in check but the offense couldnt capitalize. As i previously stated the game was a disappointment for me personally. I was hoping for a shoot out from both QB's. It was only the first game and I guess things can only go up from here.
