Minnesota Vikings Notes, Quotes 2008-09-23
--DE Jared Allen was excited the Vikings got their first victory but he also kept things in perspective. "We did not win the Super Bowl here. We won one game," he said. "Right now we are 1-2 and we got to know this feeling. This is a lot better feeling than losing. We just got to go back and keep working hard and keep emphasizing the details and keep finishing plays off and games off and we will be all right."


--RB Adrian Peterson admitted that when his hamstring tightened up in the Vikings' Week 2 loss to Indianapolis he was concerned about whether he would play against Carolina. But despite being limited in practice last week that uncertainty began to go away as the week progressed. "When you have a hurt hamstring and you are a running back, you do not always know how big it is," he said. "Throughout the week, we just took it day-to-day, and kept preparing to play." Peterson did play and rushed for 77 yards on 17 carries.

--QB Gus Frerotte, starting in place of the benched Tarvaris Jackson, said he got plenty of help from the guy he replaced during Sunday's victory over the Panthers. "Tarvaris was great today. He was right in the game," Frerotte said. "I would come over to the sidelines, we would talk about everything. We would talk about plays and what's coming up. He did a good job today. Obviously when things happen I look at film, 'Here's what happened. Here's what they should have done.' Like on the (third-quarter) touchdown to Visanthe Shiancoe, the corners usually cheat and play between the tight end and the receiver, and he got caught outside and that's why Shank was so wide open. So I was telling T-Jack we snapped it quick and he was prepared for that and that is why we were able to get one down the middle. So we talk all the time and hopefully he listens and we are all going through the season together."
