    Really good read and analsys, I think there will be a few suprises like Jackson to Berrian, Jackson to Rice, Jackson to.....anybody.
    Some of these pundint will have to re-visit their comments come the post season.

    I noticed our boy Siefert put us at #2.

    For everyone that voted us #2 or #3, they list TJ as the concern.

    They also have the nerve to pick on Shank:

    Tight end production:
    Starter Visanthe Shiancoe delivered an underwhelming performance in his first season in Minnesota and could be in jeopardy of losing play time to Garrett Mills. Shiancoe's 27 receptions for 323 yards were career highs, but the Vikings' front office paid for far better production. If Jackson is going to turn the corner at QB, Shiancoe must become a bigger threat in the passing game.

    Shit, I don't care what ESPN says. They can pick whatever sexy pick they want.... even if it's us, i do not care. I want to see actual victories from actual games and actually win our division. What they, or anyone else, say now is irrelevant. In all honesty I wouldn't be surprised if Detroit won the NFCN.

    I can understand how some people project us as 2nd in the NFCN. I don't agree, but I understand.


    How the hell does anyone pick us to be third?! That's just insulting.

    Tell me about it.
    Heck any yutz would know that Mills hasn't even seen the practice field.
    How the hell is he gonna beat out Shanc.

    Obviously they pine for a offense that uses the TE as a primary threat.
    They need to look at some game tape and watch the QB as he gets through his progressions (if the OL lets him) to see were the TE falls in the grand scheme of things .
    ;D

    It's the NFL, nobody really has much of a clue as to what is going to happen. Probably someone just thinks the Bears could be good, only a couple years removed from the superbowl. Last year if you had picked the bears to be last in the division you probably would have been laughed, even more so if you picked the pack to finish #1(especially on this site). It's a crap shoot and you really can't critisize anyones picks until after the season(you can critisize their reasoning however ;D)

    Re: ESPN - Team Preview: Minnesota Vikings

    Not all of them were typing the party line and came up with a original thought of thier own..... ;D

    DIVISION FINISH: 1
    I think QB Tarvaris Jackson will be able to take care of the ball and allow the No. 1-ranked run offense and No. 1-ranked run defense from 2007 to do the heavy lifting. RB Adrian Peterson has a very good shot at being the league MVP, and that will be enough to take the NFC North crown from the Packers.
    DIVISION FINISH: 1
    The Vikings could easily compete with the Cowboys this year in the NFC. Both of their lines are top-notch and running back Adrian Peterson is a true difference-maker. This team will be a lot of fun to watch.
    This guy is probably the closest to the way I feel.
    DIVISION FINISH: 1
    The Vikings made moves to upgrade their roster. How sharp will Tarvaris Jackson be after missing time? Injuries are making life tougher for Minnesota.

    Read it and weep, Yankee haters!

    Best cash flow: Owner Zygi Wilf. Wilf has become the George Steinbrenner of the NFL, willing to pay for any player his football people ask him for. The Vikings' optimism this season is based in part on Wilf's willingness to guarantee defensive end Jared Allen and wide receiver Bernard Berrian a combined $47 million this offseason.


    Now if the Vikings can follow up on that comparison with some championships!
