    So glad you're back.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    I see a 9-7 season coming. In reality we are not that far away. Losing Sidney Rice is not as big of deal.. He is not special. I think we knew he will have issues with hip still. He was too expensive to keep for the production he gave us in 4 yrs time.. I also think McNabb will have a better year than being 1-3 and getting benched. I think we will be better than last year offensively.. Go Vikes..

    Re: Honest;y how do you see this season going

    Personally I am tired of the decades of 11-5 to 5-11 type swings where we are really never terrible but never good enough to win a SB.

    As I have said all off season the best thing for the team might be to spend a few years in the cellar where they can load up on high draft picks and build a roster for the future. Right now too many core players are past their prime so the odds of us getting to a SB in the next few years is as slim as it has been in decades.

    5-11

    11-5, wild card, playoff win.

    Just kidding.

    Somewhere between 6-10 and 9-7. Probably 7-9 or 8-8.


    Get me drunk and I'll tell you much better or much worse.

    Yeah that has worked out great for teams like the 49ers, Lions, and Dolphins.

    Re: Honest;y how do you see this season going

    Like I said in the other thread regarding this topic. I think we finish 7-9 at best.

    Especially considering Frazier isn't going to give the starters the time together that they need to gel & get a rhythm going prior to the start of the regular season when games don't count. He wants to keep his starting players healthy by giving them as little playing time as he can.

    Instead he plans on that learning curve happening during the first part of the season when games count.

    It's OK to rest your starters for a good part of the preseason if those units didn't change much from the prior year, but when you're talking brand new QB, new OC coordinator, new schemes, several new starters & an offseason which was extremely shortened with a TC with few padded practices & an offseason void of all OTA's & minicamps, you better get your starters as much playing time together as possible.

    Well if they go with your idea, bye-bye Adrian.

    I don't think 8-8 is out of the question, but it will be interesting. I think in the previous "predict the season" thread I said somewhere around 10-6. I think that was just me looking at the teams we were playing and being very bias. It's going to be a dogfight every single game and we have a ways to go before we are contending for a playoff spot.

    With that said, I think we have the coach who can get us there sooner than later.
