So, just who the hell is Brian Robison?
Well, Packers fans and especially the Packers players and coaches should take note of this yahoo.
The Vikings’ defensive end certainly sent a verbal volley across the Packers bow this afternoon on KFAN, a Minnesota radio station.
As reported on Fansided’s The Viking Age, Robison was asked about the Packers winning the Super Bowl and he said he was “glad” the Pack won, but for all the wrong reasons, of course.
Asked why he answered as he did, here is what he said:
“Simply for the fact that I can say after this year we’re gonna kick the crap out of the Super Bowl Champs twice. Hopefully we’ll meet them in the playoffs and kick the crap out of them again.”
But he didn’t stop at that. He went on:
“You’ve got Chicago who was in the NFC Championship game. Green Bay who was in the NFC Championship game, you’ve got Detroit that is definitely an up and coming team this year and then you had us at the bottom of the division last year. Hopefully, I’m thinking we can reverse that whole order. Maybe we’ll finish first and Green Bay will finish last and give them a taste of their own medicine.”
Talk about bulletin board material. Where is this guy coming from? And if Leslie Frasier is worth his salt, I couldn’t imagine why Robison won’t be sitting in his office tomorrow, if he hasn’t already been called on the carpet.
Even Dan Zinski, the editor over at The Viking Age, can see through theis nonsense.
Here’s what he had to say in response to Robison’s comments:
“Much as I would love to share Mr. Robison’s enthusiasm, I can’t help but remember what happened the last time these two teams met. In case you’ve forgotten (or blocked it out), the Packers destroyed Minnesota 31-3 at the Metrodome in Brad Childress‘ last game as Vikings coach.
“That game demonstrated how far the Vikings are behind the Packers in pretty much all facets of the game including talent level. The Vikings would go on to finish 6-10 while the Packers, as we know, soared through the playoffs to a fourth Lombardi trophy.
“Since that 31-3 beat down, the Vikings have moved from Brett Favre to Donovan McNabb at quarterback, have turned over a lot of their defense, have lost their #1 receiver and have seen their offensive line go from a question mark to a gigantic question mark. So no, I’m not feeling quite as frisky as Mr. Robison. How about we get a couple wins under our belts before we go trash-talking the champs? Just a suggestion.”
Thanks, Dan. Injecting some common sense into this was much-needed.
