    Finally, some prognosticating sanity

    I managed to run across this random prognosticator on Yahoo Sports that actually picked the Vikes as his sleeper pick. I like what he says and with much hope in my purple heart, I look forward to his prediction being fulfilled.

    Anyway, I like the Vikings to win the NFC North despite the fact that they've lost a playmaker (Koren Robinson) and a first-round pick (Chad Greenway), and are hanging their hopes on a 38-year-old quarterback (Brad Johnson) and a running back (Chester Taylor) who has yet to prove he can carry the load. For my money, Minnesota has it where it counts – on the offensive and defensive lines, and in a secondary that has a pair of cornerbacks who should be one of the best tandems in the NFC. And after seeing Johnson in person this preseason, I think he's a perfect fit in Brad Childress' scheme. Even second-year wide receiver Troy Williamson looks like he's made some big strides since last season. Another factor in the prediction – Rex Grossman and the Bears' offense hasn't looked much better than what we saw last season. Even the defense seems to be a little flat. I still think the Bears will push for the playoffs, but I like Minnesota to be more consistent on both sides of the ball.

    Some of these guys are 'guests' at sites like this and they just synthesize the posts that are written with a semblance of knowledge.

    I should've known that "prognosticating" was too big a word. "Hot chicks" or "nude teens" always gets more play.
