That is because the fans are sick and tired of the same old crap that is Vikings football, I am at least. F'n tired of spending my hard earned money on these losers. I have been a fan of the Vikings for about 20 of my 33 years on this planet. From growing up in Florida watching them as a kid when they would play the Bucs, to moving to Wisconsin and watching them play the Packers.
I have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on this team with traveling to go to home games, buying merchandise, paying for parking, buying food, ordering the Sunday Ticket every year to watch them play and so on. What have they done for the fans? Only go to 4 Super Bowls and lose every single one of them. Hire piss poor coaches that don't know their ass from the endzone, and let their fan base down year after year. Why does anyone continue to spend their money on this team? Good god, their is many more things to spend money on then a team that just simply gives up game after game. I'm done. My wife keeps asking me when I am going to jump on the Packer's bandwagon. The answer is never, but I am very close to jumping off the Vikings.

We went with Favre, we didn't win a Super Bowl... if we had gone with Jackson, we wouldn't have won one either... so it doesn't really matter which one we went with, but we'd be a couple of years closer to developing our QB of the future... whoever that might be.
Instead, we're in the first year of yet another HC, rookie (undeveloped) QB and we're still relying on Spielman's awful drafting abilities. The only thing I've been incorrect about was the fact that Favre still had a year left, but he still lost in the playoffs... so I'm not really that impressed with his performance. The average Vikings fan who is content with mediocrity will brag about Favre's play for years (you), whereas I have the bigger picture in mind.

The fact is McNabb was once a decent player but his time has passed and he doesn't have it any more. To be honest with you by the shape is is in I am not sure he even has the fire in the belly any more.

Wow! That wasn't pretty. Toby Gerhart is a joke. 17 carries with an average of 2.6 YPC? I'd seriously rather start Booker than him again. Benny Sapp is a joke too. I'd rather give a young guy his spot. They couldn't do much worse. He got burned 100 times today. Not to mention that he STILL hasn't learned how to tackle. Jared Allen did an amazing job long-snapping for us today, but he has looked like a totally different player the past 2 games. The Raiders exploited something, and we need to figure out how to fix it. I witnessed Carolina beat the Colts today in person at Lucas Oil. So there is one team behind us in the draft pick race. I wish the pathetic Rams would have followed suit. That would have at least made this loss feel a little better. Bring on Tebow! I still don't think he will beat us (Because I'm stubborn and refuse to take back my words). But next week's game is really the only winnable game left of the season. Except for maybe the Bears with Caleb Hanie. Fire Spielman! We are destined for 3-13. Hopefully that's good enough for a top 3 pick. Because God knows we need one.
Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.
