    The lower the expectations the better imo.

    We added a ton of talent on paper, but these guys need to come together as a team. One proven way for guys to come together as a team is for them to be disrespected by the media/opposing teams/players. When they show up for training camp we have guys like Birk in there talking about how no one thinks we can do it, and how they think we aren't good enough. I know it sounds cliche and it is, but I really do think it works.

    yeah i can agree with that,

    but how and the heck do the phins get ranked 5th there are a lot better teams then the phins, on and off paper, idk that really tweaks me that cpep coming off a MVP caliaber year 2 years ago, and we dont get ranked taht high, but then now hes with the phins and he had a horrible year, blew his knee out, and THEY rank his team 5th

    The only reason the phins are 5th is because of daunte, and what has he done??? nothing and he is coming off a serious injury

    That guy's an a$$. I wouldn't say top ten to start the season, but close. Maybe 11 or 12, but 19th!! Seriously.

    Even with Culpepper, this team needs to get better line play. If they do, watch out. Ronnie Brown could be ready for a 1,500-yard season.
    If they don't get better line play they will understand why Culpeper is not a WC quarter back. :lol:

    I think these power rankings are pretty suspect. Its all based on paper not actual play and made before the draft has even happened. I think we will be in the top 10 come the season.

    The fins SHOULD be ranked higher than us PRESEASON. The had a monster second half of the season and GOT better. We have too many question marks. All new coaches. New Rb, Qb. 18th is actually a good ranking.

    Re: even after all the offseason work.....were 18th

    I personally like the fact we are rated low. Every time we are ranked to excel the team struggles, but when they are picked to not do so well is when the Vikes play their best.

    Maybe it is because they want to prove how good they are. The team has made many changes and still has to prove they can take whats on paper and make it work on the field.

    Besides its fun to see all of the experts say they won't do well and when the Vikes do then all of them are saying how they knew the Vikes could do it and that they had them down to do well.

    Just sit back, wait, and enjoy. I think the season is going to be one of the most exciting to see in years. A new offense, a new defense, new players with potential on both sides of the ball. I can't wait.

    18th sounds logical... Very reasonable actaully..

    We have all new coaches and a ton of new players.. Never know how it will turn out
