Eagles Fans Go on Attack Mode on 99-Year-Old Vikings Fans Millie After NFC Title Game

One of the best stories of the playoffs for Vikings fans was living through die hard Vikings fan Millie – a 99-year-old who got the attention of the team and fans alike.

It was a great story while it lasted, but as we know the Vikings season is over after Sunday’s blowout loss to the Eagles in Philly. Millie’s granddaughter put out a statement about her grandma after the game as a show of ‘thank you’.

STATEMENT: Millie Wall and our family would like to extend our sincerest thank you to the Minnesota Vikings, the NFL, and the community for following her story over the last few weeks. We would also like to congratulate the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles on their trip to Super Bowl LII here in our home city of Minneapolis on February 4, 2018. Our family and the state of Minnesota look forward to welcoming both teams and their fans to our community over the next couple of weeks.

Millie Wall continues to remain a huge fan of the Minnesota Vikings, despite the loss this evening against Philadelphia. Her fandom, positivity, and support of the team will continue in the off season and into next season, where she is hopeful for another incredible season like this one.

Thank you again for your continued support and love for Millie Wall.

Of course that didn’t stop disgusting Eagles fans from attacking Millie, putting out NSFW signs that said ‘F$ck Millie’ – again showing why they are the worst fans in all of sport.

No Miracles in the NFC Title Game as Vikings Blown Out in Philadelphia by Eagles 38-7

The Vikings got off to a quick start in Sunday’s NFC Title Game against the Philadelphia Eagles, scoring first and serving notice they were ready to make reservations for Super Bowl LII in their home stadium.

Then, in a matter of 1:09 of play, it all was swept away, crushing the hopes of fans who used a bet365 bonus code to wager big on the Vikes.

Nick Foles and the Eagles laid a second quarter knockout punch of the Vikings, and by the time the blood bath was over, it was the Eagles flying high, pounding the Vikings and ending their season with an impressive 38-7 win.

The final 69 seconds of the first half was the death blow to the Vikings season, as first it was Foles hitting a 53-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffrey to give the Eagles a 21-7 lead after they led 14-7.

Then after the Vikings held the ball for just 40 seconds, running six plays and punting, the Eagles went right through the Vikings D, going down the field from their own 20 to the Vikings 33 in just three plays, and Jake Elliott hit a 38-yard field goal to make it 24-7 at the half.

Game over.

There wouldn’t be a follow-up to last Sunday’s ‘Minneapolis Miracle,’ as Case Keenum was shut down throwing two picks and hitting 28-of-48 passing for 278 yards and the Vikings only score.

This night belonged to Foles, who was dominant and deserved the game ball, as he missed on just seven passes, throwing for 352 yards and three scores in the win.

The Eagles put any comeback hopes of the Vikings away as Torrey Smith pulled in a 41-yard touchdown pass from Foles with 10:05 to play in the third quarter to extend the lead to 31-7.

From there the Vikings were totally out of their game plan, and never recovered, going away rather easily after all week they spoke about going into Philly as the favorite and flexing their muscle to get a win against the #1 seeded Eagles.

Instead, it was not to be, as for the fourth time since 1998 they were forced to watch as another team celebrated a trip to the Super Bowl.

While there will be plenty to celebrate about this season, it ended on the saddest of notes, a blowout by a team they simply couldn’t match up to.

Low Back Injury Still Has Vikings Leading WR Adam Thielen Sidelined

The Vikings are heading to Philly for a chance to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium, but it sounds like the team is clearly not going to be 100 percent.

Here’s the latest on the Vikings injury front from Pro Football Talk:

Coach Mike Zimmer told reporters on Friday that receiver Adam Thielen is questionable, with a lower back injury.

Thielen didn’t practice on Wednesday, and he was limited in practice on Friday.

The questionable category became in 2016 a broad one, encompassing essentially anything less than a 100-percent chance of playing, all the way down to 50-50. The next question will be whether Thielen travels to Philadelphia with his teammates.

He has said he’ll be fine, and there’s a chance that the Vikings are simply engaged in a little gamesmanship. If, for some reason, Thielen can’t play, lesser-used pass-catchers like Laquon Treadwell and Michael Floyd would become more important to the offense. Also, underrated slot receiver Jarius Wright would take on greater significance.

Giants ‘Top Choice’ for Head Coach is Vikings OC Pat Shurmur

Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has emerged as the “top choice” to replace Ben McAdoo as the next head coach of the New York Giants according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Shurmer is also rumored to be the frontrunner for the open head coaching job in Arizona but Rapsheet reports that he would accept the Giants job first if it is offered. The Giants have been impressed by Shurmur’s success with multiple quarterbacks in Minnesota. The 52-year-old Shurmur, who previously coached the Browns for two seasons, would be a low-wattage hire but his reputation has remained strong in league circles.
