    NFC North

    The NFC North is without a doubt the worst division in football. Overall, we are 2-6 as a division. What's worse is that those 2 victories were against other NFC North teams (Lions over Packers, Bears over Lions). None of the teams in this division are legitimate Super Bowl contenders. They just aren't. Therefore, the Vikings goal should be to make the playoffs. I think we're looking at the real possibility of winning your division with a losing record. The key for the Vikings is to win all of their divisional games. I think we'll beat Detroit twice. I think we'll beat Green Bay twice. One game that the Vikings always have trouble in is at Chicago. Every year the Vikings go in their as the far superior team, yet get beaten and roughed up and sent home. Vikings have to win that game this year. If we win all of our divisional games, we'll make the playoffs. I'd also make the bet that who ever does represent the NFC North in the playoffs will be confronted and slaughtered and sent home quickly.

    Your thoughts?

    Oh, and I'd just like to say how much nicer losing is when the Packers lose as well. It lifts the depression immediately.

    Minnesota is fine. It's a NEW team everyone just relax.

    I just can't relax, Daunte just played the two worst games of his life back-to-back. A good team right now would be at least 1-1 if not 2-0. We are playing like shit, its that simpel. I can't relax when my team is playing like the worst in the NFL.

    I think 8-8 will probabaly win the division, although 7-9 would not surprise me. If the Vikes play like this the rest of the season though, they won't get to 7-9.

    It's still early in the season, SUPER EARLY. Only 2 games outta 16, by week 4 if we're not atleast 2-2 then it's time for us to worry and start pulling our hair out...

    Minnesota is not fine. 0-2 isn't the end of the world, but it does make things difficult on a team. More disturbing, however, is the nature in which we lost those two games. The only consoling thing is that the rest of the division is poor as well, hence my point. Your comment is overall irrelevent to what I'm talking about, is a great example of blind optimism, and noting the fact that we are a "new team", is also rather irrelevent. I don't think that's a valid excuse at all.

    The other thing that worries me is having to play the Falcons, who are a very good team. Next week's game against the Saints IS a must win. If we lose that one, then we'll head into at Atlanta with a very good chance of going 0-4. 1-3 is overcomable. Technically, 0-4 is as well, but not realistically.

    Yah I don't like how everyone panics after 2 games.. Sure it was bad.. But It was our cordinators 2nd game only.. Hopefully our line can play better and pep picks up his game.. Im confident of our team.. We are only 1 game behind the superbowl champs!
