How Many Days Until Spring Training?

I'm watching yet another Minnesota Vikings season going down the drain.

Brett Favre was picked off three times last night, as he probably played his final game at his onetime home stadium, Lambeau Field, as the Packers pulled out a 28-24 win.

The Vikings are now 2-4, with a date with the New England Patriots at Foxboro looming this coming Sunday.

Favre suffered an ankle injury during the game, but gutted it out the rest of the way. Should he have come out after the second half injury? Lots of folks are asking that question today.

Adrian Peterson was a bright spot last night, running for 131 yards and 28 carries, and one TD.

But this was a must-win game for the Vikings, and now are 1 1/2 games behind Green Bay and Chicago. The road gets no easier as the next four weeks feature New England, Arizona, Chicago and a rematch with Green Bay.

Count me in the group that isn't optimistic about the rest of this season. They hitched their wagon to Brett Favre, and it doesn't appear it will end well.

And if that's not bad enough, most Minnesotans feel the Vikings should stay in the Metrodome, according to a new poll.

Finally, to answer the question this post asked: 111 and counting.

It can't come soon enough.
