    Yeah.
    Weeee.

    A 9-7 record to limp into the playoffs to face the #3 seed on their turf in the Wild-Card round and a 20th-place draft slot.

    I've got faith!
    Faith that that would be more of the same mediocrity Vikings fans have been witnessing for the past 20 years (with 1998 being the exception right up until they choked the NFC Championship away).

    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Yes - and no.


    Valuable in that it gives them 1 more game against a quality opponent likely on the road.

    Not valuable in that it does NOT give them a chance at the top-tier rookies which a much higher draft choice would provide.

    We all thought that last year's momentous push to the playoffs (just missing out) would provide that valuable experience to the whole team - not just the young players.
    I don't think that any more.

    Some times I think I'm wasting my life being a QA guy with a lovely wife, beautiful daughter and nice home when I should be some crazy long-haired guy who stands on a milk crate in the middle of downtown, screaming at passers-by about the problems of the world.

    Well if you notice I said it is valuable to our young players. So I don't see how the lack of a high round draft pick will hurt our PLAYERS.

    The atmposphere, the increased level of play a game that means the end. All of that should help improve the character of our team. Now if every season we are going to pull a Washington Redskins and get all new players then yeah it may not help.

    I am so down this year because I expected such good things but as usual, I will "keep the faith baby" as they say.
    The ONLY thing that makes this season worthwhile is that the Ben-Gals have the same record as the Vikings and they were Super Bowl picks. I love to see the glum faces of the Ben-Gal fans where I live in Ben-Gals Country.

    Always look on a game with a positive angle - otherwise why bother to make the effort to watch it
    ;D
    As for the playoffs - yes I'd love to see us make it and why? because they are 20 other teams fans wishing they were in the playoffs even if it was for only one game.
