Check out NationalFootballAuthority.comOnce upon a time in the 2009 NFC Championship Game, Head Coach Brad Childress, quarterback Brett Favre and the Vikings appeared to be a play or two away from a Super Bowl.That now seems like ages ago.
Of course, we all know what happened that Sunday afternoon in the Superdome. Tied 28-all late in the game, the Minnesota offense appeared on its way to at least a field goal try that could have sent the franchise to their first Super Bowl since the mid-1970s. Instead, a costly 12-men on the field penalty followed by a Favre interception eventually spelled doom for the Purple Gang.
