    Re: Its over all, 1984 all over again, 3-13?

    Yay, another week of these posts ... until we beat the Lions next week and everyone says, maybe we can get going ... and then we lose on the road to someone and everyone says we will lose the rest of our games ... and then we win at home again and everyone (everyone being people who have never posted until they come on here after a loss to tell us how bad it is) will be saying here we go ... I think you get the picture.
    Sure we are not looking that good. But to honestly say we will only win one more game when we still have five contests in the dome including against the Brown, Bears, Lions and Rams ... is a little doom and gloom I think ... but I guess those that have been here a couple of years are used to it ... Ill be used to it next season.

    This is no way to get that stadium idea rolling. I think MN's Legislature has a couple of pack-fans. Why else would it have taken this long....good or bad?!?!?!?

    Dude, its over. I have been a Vikings fan since 1979 and even in those love/hate Tommy Kramer/Wade Wilson years I have never seen a Vikings team play under so much uncertainy...the vikings have much talent to build on, but it will take a coaches/managers with a fresh perspective and no loyalty to the recent past.

    I agree w/midgensa...I'm not one to enter in thousands of posts, but I have read enough of them before, during and after a loss to see the same trend. It's not showing the true light of a fan. Yes...it is very disappointing having a lot of the stats that we do this year so far, but everyone has those years. It's the true fans that will stick with their team through thick & thin. It's ok to let out a little punch in the kidneys once in a while. You have to...otherwise, if you bottle it up, all of a sudden you could end up in jail for beating your spouse...Moon. All we ask is not to completely give up hope and loyalty. The season isn't over yet. Show some purple pride until the last tick if the last game. If you have to....burn a jersey or a hat or something...you can always buy more!

    Dude, I feel ya.....but its over. I'd love to see the Vikes run the table - but what to get blown out by Carolina in the playoffs? C'mon now, this is just the reality of today's NFL - a very risky business. What will Ziggy do now to sell out the Dome the rest of the year?

    Red is looking like a smarter business man every day. The assets of this team; Pep, Moss, & Birk are passing their prime. Rebulid and pay more money? Or cash out? McCombs opted for the later.

    The last time we lost starting a Qb and were 2-5 with a suspect head coach was in 1984 with Les Steckel. Looks like we heading that way again.....sorry guys, but its over.
    THIS IS NOT 1984! GET OVER IT! AND TICE IS NOT STECKEL!

    Until we actually go 3-13, don't say it's over. It ain't over til it's over & that's in 9 more weeks.

    What makes you think the team is going to mutiny? Because players got injured? That's one of the most absurd things I've heard on this forum.

    Look around the league at the back-up QB's! You should be thankful we have a veteran backup QB with as much experience as Brad instead of some rookie.

    Injuries happen, that's part of the game. Some teams have more than their share. There is no one to blame!

    Everytime we lose the threads pop-up, It's over, Bench this guy, start this guy, who should we take with the 1st pick in the draft? Trade this guy, Cut this guy & Who should be our next head coach?

    I typically avoid those posts as much as possible, but some things need to be said.

    Next week, I'll be sitting in the Metrodome cheering on my team to win & many others will be doing the same in front of their T.V.s.

    I expect that because you KNOW this season is over, you'll be doing something else!

    I know it's frustrating that were not having the picture perfect season a lot of people thought we'd have and it's easy for people to get all negative, but we are still Vikings fans & if we don't have the best playing team in the NFL right now, I'd like us to at least try to have the best fans!






    Rant over!

    (I'm sorry, I don't want to offend anyone, but I'd like to post my feelings as well)

    I'll be back on my bar stool next week as well, looking for something positive to build on....rest assured, but if the Vikes at least had Les Steckel there might be some discipline. The players are already quitting on Tice. BJ is great, but how many games is he going to last behind the o line? And then what Shawn Hill? Good lord, I think I'd rather see if Spergon Wynn is available.
