    The Vikings, who play the Packers today at the Metrodome in a game that could have playoff ramifications, have improved significantly since the start of the season, coach Brad Childress said....

    Re: Childress insists 4-4 Vikings improving, 'ascending'

    I would hae to agree with him. We are ascending. Our offense is light yars ahead of the crap we saw at the 1st week of the season. I think the play calling has improves but excecution as well. I only hate Childress when he makes silly mistakes. In the last 2 weeks of play he hasn't made those coaching blunders. Good job Chilly and the Coaching staff...

    Please fix the ST.
    Have we had a punt return longer than 7 yards this season?

    Edit: Shocked that AA had a punt return of 27 yards....Our Average punt return is
    5.1

    We've stil got aways to go before we join the mile high club, and today against the pukers will be a navigational test. Can we continue to ascend, or will the turbulence bring us down in elevation.

    That said I like what I've seen the last few weeks and a home win against the Cheeser's is just what I ordered from my flight attendant. 8)

    [size=15pt]Which coach? Why? Answers, please[/size]

    With the Vikings in first place, how can fans stand so staunchly against Childress -- while still embracing the Gophers' Brewster
    Didn't think this deserved a thread of its own and kindof tracked along with this one.

    Edit:
    Forgot the link.

    : Yep, definitely improved.

    Since that article we eked out wins against a mediocre GB team & a terrible 0-12 Lions team & beat a 6-5 Bears team that is decimated by injuries.

    All of those wins came within a weak division.

    I believe we've improved.
    Didn't we play detroit in week 6?
    So that was before this came out...

    We beat two teams that had already beatin us at the beginning of the year.
    Either they got worse or we improved in some way.

    Your right. We beat a 3-7 Houston team instead. Chicago has gotten worse, while GB has stayed about the same, thus the two close games. Beating .500 or less ball clubs isn't something to brag about or a basis to claim improvement.

    hardly, the giants are in first place.

    We currently have the #3 seed, with the #5 record in the NFC.
    far from a #1 team
