Chilly: "It's their job to stop us"
Cowboys linebacker Keith Brooking isn’t happy.
“I just think there wasn’t much class involved in that decision,” Brooking told reporters regarding Vikings quarterback Brett Favre’s 11-yard touchdown pass to tight end Visanthe Shiancoe with just 1:55 left in Sunday’s divisional round playoff game.
The touchdown gave the Vikings a 34-3 lead.
After the score, Brooking sprinted to the Vikings sideline to say something to Favre, but found no sympathy from an excited Minnesota football team.
“We don’t care what Keith Brooking says. He was about to get his ass whupped on our sideline over there,” said Vikings defensive tackle Pat Williams after the game.
Said Vikings head coach Brad Childress, “As Lou Holtz used to say, ‘It’s our job to score points and it’s their job to stop us from scoring points.’”
And in reality, should anyone feel bad for Brooking and the Cowboys? This isn’t high school football. It’s the NFL and it’s the playoffs. You get paid to play the game so if you don’t like it that the other team is playing 60 minutes of football, you have two options:
1. Stop them
2. Find a new job
