5 things: Vikings should have opportunities on offense vs. Dallas

PJD's Game 8 Recap: The Return of the Crap

Mark Morrison REMIX! As Christian Ponder threw the DEEPEST ball possible he could in his entire life, and watched as it fluttered 30 yards deep and then died at the five yard line to become the the farting balloon flying across the room someone let go at a birthday party of Hail Mary's in the NFL, I couldn't help think that Vikings fans have seen this whole scenario before...
