    Confused..

    Let me tell you something

    I am a vikings fan... I always root for them.

    However, today I wasn't too cheerful... as if I didn't want them to win.

    I don't know, it's like I really want them to draft Reggie Bush but I want them to do well in the season also.

    I was suprised the beat the Lions but I wasn't too thrilled about it.

    I dont know what to think

    I understand what you're talking about. Starting a week or so ago, I began having the same feeling. Perhaps even if we lose out it won't be such a bad thing. I even began to question myself as a true fan. Then I figured out the fact that I just want the best for my team. It was also a way to deal with our losing, it gave me something to look foward to, drafting an impact player. Even having these feelings, we're still Viking fans, damn good ones at that. Lets just support our team.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Simply put ... pulling for your team to lose is a cowardly act and a way to keep yourself from feeling bummed. So you can say hey, I dont mind losing because I want this player, blah blah blah ... it is just giving yourself a way out because you don't want to step up to the plate and be a fan no matter what.

    These are word best uttered to your priest in confession or to your god in prayers before bedtime, not to Viking Fans on a Fan-site.

    You are just numb to the losing. You just need to get the blood flowing again.

    A lot has gone down in the season, most of it bad. It can give you that feeling. I hope the Vikes get your juices going again.

    Also, stop worrying about the draft order, as long as you have a pick in the first round, you will have the opportunity to get a talented player. It is more important for the 53 guys out there to get some confidence going into next year than putting your hopes into one top ten draft choice. One guy no matter how good he is is not going to help the TEAM.

    Reggie Bush won't do SH!T behind our swiss cheese O-Line....besides, we may need a QB depending on Daunte's surgery.....a rookie is NEVER the clear cut answer cuz you never know how they'll perform in the NFL....look at Ryan Leaf, or Rashaan Salaam, or Chris Hovan, or Brian Bosworth, or Akili Smith....all of them were gonna be "saviors"! The Vikes need to get it rollin....if they can get the O firing on all cylinders, they have a chance to be great (still)....

    We won't be drafting Bush so maybe that will help you to deal with that and you can get a good player no matter where you draft I am impressed with Erasmus James and we got him at #18.

    Yes, you are right about it being cowardly.

    What I was saying about feeling numb is the start of where you have to wake up and say I won't take the cowardly way out, and try to help your own blood to get flowing again.
