The clarity of hindsight tells us that the Minnesota Vikings choked themselves to death in the NFC Championship game. The Super Bowl-bound New Orleans Saints did not beat the Vikings, the Vikings beat themselves. Brett Favre, who has a great future ahead of him as a tackling dummy in New Orleans if he decides not to rejoin the Vikings next August, has drawn a lot of scorn for his foolish decision to pass the ball in the fading seconds to a well-covered Sidney Rice.
