    we can read all the predictions we want...we're not going to know anything until the first few game play out
    Play in my Vikings fantasy football league!

    Shut down the hype.

    I have a terrible feeling we're going to crash and burn this season.

    I don't agree with some of this :
    QUOTE
    Jackson has no more excuses. This is his third year in the league and his second as a starter. The Vikings have provided him with pass protection, solid receivers and a fine running game. He has good coaching and a proven system from which to operate.

    I agree Jackson has no more excuses. But I don't agree he was provided with the best pass protection,solid receivers, or a proven system.And the jury is still out on coaching.
    I see this team as one that might make the playoffs. Anything beyond that would surprise me.

    But if we do see solid protection,receivers, coaching and scheme. The sky is the limit. And Tarvaris should have a breakout year!
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    I like your post for the most part but "Might make the playoffs" isn't gonna cut it. Last year we should have easily made the postseason with
    the guys we had. Throw in the mix Jared Allen, Madeu Williams, Thomas Topeh, Tyrell Johnson, Bernard Berrian a Healthy Sidney Rice and Antonie Winfied and look out we're coming at em hard. Tarvaris completed his first season with us at helm along with a few other rookies of the "system".

    Imo I think we should be expecting SB. Of course its best to take things one day at a time but when you look at the whole picture and the amount of talent on our team there is no reason to believe otherwise unless your one of those fans that decides its best to avoid hype because of past let downs that have nothing to do with the future.

    I definitly agree with you when you say we need to get everyone on the same track, only then can we really see what Tarvaris is all about and what he can do. The physical talent is in place and if guys like Childress and Birk are right about him when they he is smart, big things are too come.

    I'm just glad neither of you guys are involved inside of our orginization in any way other than just a fan on a website. This type of attitude leads to exactly what it is. If you guys did work inside of our orginization I would hope that you were fired, this type of attitude can spread in any type of orginization or business. Some would call them leaches even effecting a fan base.
