    Re: Early Power Rankings Have Vikes 25th...

    Here's another ranking with us 23rd.
    At this rate we'll be in the top 20 by the time training camp starts.

    23. Minnesota Vikings — Brad Childress's offense got two shiny new weapons on draft day with first- and second-round picks Adrian Peterson and Sidney Rice. Both should see action immediately. If the Peterson-Chester Taylor combo plays as expected, and that star-studded offensive line continues to uphold its end of the bargain, we could be looking at the best rushing team in the NFL. As for the passing game? Well, yeah. Whole other story. Tarvaris Jackson was anything but stellar in his few appearances last year (see Thursday night in Green Bay ), and the receiving corps leaves a lot to be desired. Is Bobby Wade really their No. 1 option? If Jackson performs, though, Minnesota could very well be a force to be reckoned with in the NFC. That said, it's not even a sure bet that Jackson will be starting on opening day. According to Pioneer Press columnist Sean Jensen, "Jackson didn't exactly distance himself from Brooks Bollinger in the race to be the Vikings' starting quarterback" during the team's recent three-day mini-camp. My gut? Jackson starts and plays better than expected, but the Vikes are still a year away from playoff contention.

    Ahead of GB and Detroit.
    That is the important thing...
