Found November 15, 2011 on Mighty Quinn Media Machine:
An absolutely ugly night for the Vikings at Lambeau Field on Monday night. The Green Bay Packers once again proved they are the class of the NFL: 45-7.I was really hoping for a respectable game from the Vikings. I sure didn't get it. No discipline from the Vikings, as they committed penalty after penalty. Offensive line was awful, as Christian Ponder looked like he was harried by Green Bay all night.Packers at times looked like they were toying with the Vikings.This game brought back bad memories of the worst season in Vikings history: 1984. Remember Les Steckel, the one-year head coach that season? I've done my very best to forget him.The Vikings finished 3-13 in 1984. I wouldn't be surprised if this team matches that.It's going to be a long way back to respectability for this team, folks.

Purple Jesus Diaries Masturbatory Primetimie Game Preview: Prepare to get Shirtless

Take your shirt off: Ooooh, yeah girl. I know you been thinking about Mr. Ponder all weekend long. You out drinking a gin and ginger ale on Friday night at Sally's, thinking which one of those meat heads with the popped collar you're going to settle for and take home with you so he can get all sloppy on you from behind while you fantasize about Christian Ponder's white...

Defense takes control, Packers pound Vikings 45-7

So much for all that talk about Clay Matthews' sack slump. The Green Bay Packers' primary pass rusher took down Minnesota Vikings rookie quarterback Christian Ponder twice, leading a defensive resurgence as the Packers blew out the Vikings 45-7 on Monday night. ''Tonight was no different than any other night for me,'' Matthews said. ''It was just...
