As the results continue to roll in, the Vikings are indeed dropping in this week’s Power Rankings on websites throughout the league. The first non-SB Nation entry for this week comes from the National Football Post, one of the spots that I noted last week as having had the Vikings ranked much higher than many sites when they put the Vikings at number 18. However, even they couldn’t ignore the stink of the performance that the Vikings put on last night, so they dropped Minnesota three spots in this week’s poll to number 21.
And, like the good folks at SB Nation, they focused on the same position that everyone else has for most of the year in Minnesota.
Tarvaris Jackson looked and played like a backup with Brett Favre on the sidelines in sweats.
He certainly did. I think that some of us had hoped in the back of our minds and in our heart of hearts that Tarvaris Jackson could be the answer at quarterback, but it doesn’t appear as though that’s the case. I guess that’s a good thing, seeing as he’s not under contract to come back next season, either.
Joe Webb or bust, baby!
