Their chances of beating Cooper's brother with Asher Allen starting, and Karl Paymah getting a lot of playing time, would not have been good.

I think Winfield will be due for a shift to safety in the next year or so. I don't think he'll be playing corner effectively for too much longer.

So the penalty for 12 men in the huddle and the Favretastic pick that ensued not only cost the Vikings a likely spot in the Super Bowl, they may have cost the Vikings an important part of their defense for a significant part of next season.

8 result:

Torn ACL, but MCL okay.

Not quite as bad, but still certain to miss start of next season.
