Well let me share some insight.
Feeling a little down today. My enthusiasm for the coming season is waning. Having been a Vikings fan for 30 years, I have been down this street too many times. High hopes and high expectations ending in bitter disappointment. Much of this can just be attributed to being a true die-hard fan I suppose, but us long time Viking fans know true heartbreak. Drew Pearson, Les Steckel, Gary Anderson, Randy Moss, just a few names that still bring tears to me eyes.
I have heard all the talk, new coach, new focus on defense, but questions at QB, LB, WR.
On the eve of another season, all of a sudden I am getting that "here we go again" feeling. Help convince me that this season (our regime) is different. Can I bring myself to once again dream of that pot at the end of the rainbow? Please.
Hopefully it is mostly just a result of a slow day at work.
