During the 2009-2010 NFL season, the Vikings had everything going their way. The last second passes were successful by the tip of a toe in the end zone; coaches and players were getting along (most of the time); there were no stories of text messages that everyone wishes they hadn’t heard about; and Randy Moss was happy in New England, and thus nobody was in the Vikings locker room trippin’ about the catered food.
The magic of the 2009 season was my reasoning for thinking that Brett Favre should have stayed saddled up on his tractor. The only thing that could stop the Vikings last year was a deep manifestation of that ole’ “Creole mojo,” that the Saints had cooking down in the Superdome. The Saints won the Super Bowl, so it seems that the mojo could not be defeated, and thus the Vikings technically did as well as they possibly could last year. And usually a year like that is not followed up by a year of the same type of performance or better.
