    Re: Does anyone feel the media gives the Vikings no respect?

    Even if the Vikings had a winning season the media still would not give them enough credit.
    Heck if they won the Superbowl you know Joe Buck would still find some reason to crap all over them.
    Vikings fans have to realize that the media will never give them the credit they deserve (that is if they are doing well) so we just have to ignore the criticism because it will only fuel them to do better.

    Re: Does anyone feel the media gives the Vikings no respect?

    It's tough not because we suck, but because the media always points out the negatives of our team while glossing over the positive. All we have heard this offseason is about TJ and our WRs.

    Peterson, for the type of player he is, has gotten very little mention. I don't care that he is splitting carries, he will be better than Lynch barring injury.

    Hutch and Birk have had miniscule pub outside of minny. Hutch got tons of attention on the seahawks when he was next to Jones. He comes to minny, and nothing.

    How many times have you seen "Minnesota is great against the run, but has done very little to fix its pass rush." Erasmus is being ignored, and so are Edwards and Robison.

    Greenway. Zero national pub.

    The fact that our defense may have gotten better has been mentioned NOWHERE.

    The media just lacks the ability to give fair assesments, that highlight both sides of the story when it comes to the Vikings.

    the media will give us no respect until we are back in the playoffs and are a winning team again!

    Is it any surprise to get no respect from the media??

    It shouldn't be, we haven't done anything even close to resembling respectable in a long time.

    And lastly, we are not a large media market team.

    Re: Does anyone feel the media gives the Vikings no respect?

    i honestly feel like most of these media types don't have any idea what kinda team the vikes are this year.
    they just look at tavaris and our wrs and say bad team.
    meanwhile the rams who gotta win handed them in the last game of last year to finish 8-8 are getting all kinds of hype, along with perenial underachievers carolina.
    just look at some of the teams i've heard many a good things about and you tell me they don't have holes all over the place.


    san fran- is alex smith for real? are any there wrs gonna make an impact?
    is their run defense any better?


    st louis- great offense, like every year, but can anyone say defense?
    adding adam carriker and then moving him to DT i dont think solves the defenses problems in one big swoop.
    my feeling is the west teams are too mediocre where they will just beat up on each other and end up 8-8 just like the rams and niners did last year.


    detroit- might as well just repost the st louis description all over again.
    except there secondary is probably much worse and they haven't proven they can run the football to go along with their bevy of wrs.

    green bay- ummmm brett farve?
    donald driver and who?
    who's running the football for them again?
    their defense has improved and not to the point where they are gonna win games 14-10 week to week.

    these are just a few teams i've heard get love while we are marked down for 5 wins.
    and i'm not saying this just cuz i'm homer but when you've read good reports about the vikings team this year, there seems to be a deep insight into why they feel that way.
    as opposed to when we get dogged and all the writer says is "tavaris jackson."

    Of course we don't get respect. We have never got respect. Even when we had Moss we did not get respect. All the media did was dig up dirt (not that they had to dig deep with Moss). Now with the mediocer team (on paper) everyone writes us off as finishing under .500. Well this is the year of the come-back-kid. Tarvaris is going to show all the Haters what kind of team we are. I am predicting a 13-3 season. Losing to Chargers, Bears at Chicago, and KC. The way it looks we will meet the Colts in the SB and win 27-24.
