    MMQB - Peter King ranks Vikes 7th in the league, 3rd in NFC

    Here are the Vikings-related blurbs from this morning's MMQB:

    Monday Morning QB (cont.)
    Posted: Monday December 10, 2007 3:32AM; Updated: Monday December 10, 2007 4:28AM

    The Fine Fifteen

    7. Minnesota (7-6). I am bullish on the Vikes being the sixth NFC seed. Maybe the fifth. Look at the schedule: Chicago, Washington, at Denver. Look how they're playing. Look at the competent quarterback.

    Quote of the Week I
    "I think if you told our guys a month ago that they were going to be the hunted instead of going hunting, they probably would have asked you, 'Well, how's that going to happen?'"

    -- Minnesota coach Brad Childress, whose Vikes won their fourth in a row, 27-7 at San Francisco.
    These are from his 10 Things I Think I Think:

    i. Adrian Peterson rushed 14 times for three yards at San Francisco, and the Vikes won by 20 points. Yes, the tide is turning for the Vikes all right.

    j. I'm no ratings maven, but I'll bet a dime that a Dallas-New England or Green Bay-New England Super Bowl would draw the biggest audience in American television history.

    k. Why do I think the Vikings might have something to say about that?
    Isn't that nice of that no-talent hack?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Awesome stuff. I actually like the credit we're getting for once. I used to hate for us to be in the lime light, but we're playing lime light football.Childress IMHO is a very very smart man, and give his time, he'll produce.I'm so ready for next Monday already!

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Nice. Right now the Vikings still have to prove that they are better than the Bucs or Seahawks. More importantly, there is a need to stay consistent and continue playing at a high level, come what may.

    Go Vikes! Beat the Bears!


    Go Vikings!

    I don't want people to crown us to early.

    Yes, I am sipping the purple kool aid, and am secretly hoping for a superbowl, but geez.

    I'm with you on this. We still have a lot of season left to go and we are going to be playing Chicago, Washington and Denver.... all pretty decent teams.

    I'm happy with where we are at, I just hope the team stays focused and continues to play like the cohesive unit we've seen on the field for the past 4 weeks.

    Great to see this article though!

    We are peaking at the perfect time. All of our draft picks are playing well & don't appear to be hitting the "rookie wall". Things look good for us, & we'll prove to the world on national TV next Monday night, that we are a team no one wants to play.

    Yeah, it is really uplifting to see some media love.
    I have been with the Vikes for a while now and I never remember this much purple support!

    Is Peter King making a Vikings Super Bowl reference here?...What the heck is going on in the world of football..lol Things are looking really good for us, but dont you think it might be a little early to throw our names in with the Cowboys, Packers , and Patriots?
    There is no doubt that this is a different team than that which played the Packers a few weeks back but man. Winning 5 outta 6 and four in a row really changes the landscape.

    Skol Vikings!
