(With the Minnesota Vikings season ending prematurely last Sunday in Minneapolis I was reminded of a column with that headline that I wrote 25 years ago as the Vikings seemed headed for a trip to the Super Bowl. The team finished the regular season 15-1 and then lost in overtime in the  playoffs to Atlanta when a win would have gotten the team to the Super Bowl. This column was written in October when hopes were high, maybe too high, just as they were for many Minnesota fans during the 2022 13-4 season.)

It's probably a good thing the Minnesota Vikings had a bye week Sunday after blowing out the Green Bay Packers the week before.
