The Vikings pounded the heck out of the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, and all Cowboy Keith Brooking could do was cry about it. Brooking called Brett Favre and coach Brad Childress “classless” for throwing a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to seal the deal when it came to their win. They hammered the Cowboys 34 to 3.
After Favre threw an 11-yard touchdown to Visanthe Shiancoe, Brooking went over the Vikings sideline and yelled at Favre and then Childress. I’ve no doubt that Brooking was frustrated, but the reality was they needed a first down, and how many times have we seen a team turn around and make a game of it when the other team is playing conservatively? If Brooking wanted to stop the Vikes from making plays he should have been awake and playing himself.
Brooking said he’s looking forward to the next time the two teams meet in the regular season. What? Is he finally going to play then or whine some more?
