Pinner Done!

Quite a performance yesterday by the Vikings against Detroit, as the unheralded backup-backup running back Artose Pinner rushed for over 100 yards and three touchdowns against his former team, to key a 30-20 victory in which the Vikes once again gave up negative rushing yards. But it was Detroit, so does it really count?

The win brings the Vikings' record to 6-7, but I'm not too optimistic about a playoff run. They're a team that does one thing- stopping the run- really, really well, and not much else. Call them the opposite of the Eagles, who would probably give up at least 100 yards on the ground to several local high school teams. But they're still a game up on the Vikings, and one back of division leader Dallas, after yesterday's pretty convincing victory over Washington. For some reason, I'm no longer hearing the calls for A.J. Feeley to replace Jeff Garcia.
