    NFL coaches power poll

    All 32 NFL coaches did a power poll and had the vikes #5. NE, phily, colts and seahawks were the top 4 in that order. At least the coaches still see our team as a top team, even after the loss to phily.

    NFL coaches power poll

    CBS Sportsline, ESPN, and Fox Sports also rank the Vikings at #5, which I think is a fair rating, and where I would probably rank us as well. It's a solid prediction for us to be division champs... Skol!

    NFL coaches power poll

    i dont think we deserve 5, we have not played like the fifth best team, not that we certainly cant be five or better but we should not be there just yet in my opinion, althought i would say top ten, probably at ten.
    Sometimes I like to think there is more to life than being you know. . . really really good looking.

    NFL coaches power poll

    I agree that the Vikes could easily be lower, but I don't know of any teams that really deserve to be higher right now. The Jacksonvilles and Detroits don't really seem like they are really that good, and the Chiefs and Rams don't have the record. So, until things shake out more, I'm not going to argue with it.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    NFL coaches power poll

    In case you didn't know, the NFL Coaches Poll is a new thing out this season, and is done every week.

    I absolutely think the #5 ranking of the Vikings is appropriate. It's still early in the season, but the Vikings only loss was on the road to the #2 team, and the Vikings moved the ball up and down the field all night on the Eagles. The Vikings defense isn't worthy of a top 10 rating, but we're talking overall...and I don't think you can convince me of another team behind the Vikings that deserves to be ranked ahead of them right now, other than perhaps the Jets (and their schedule hasn't been that tough).
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    NFL coaches power poll

    I'm not happy with #5. I think we're better than the eagles, Seahawks and Colts. We certainly haven't been playing liek it though.
    When it s all said and done, you ll have to admit we re number 1!

    I think were better than the seahawks but not the eagles. The colts will be hard to stop when we play them so we better bring our A game cause we all remember what happened to us in St. Louis last year.

    Why would any vikes fan not think we are better than the eagles? Did they beat us, or did we beat ourselves? Well, considering we had 100 yards more than them and had the ball 15 minutes more than they did, and had 11 penalties to their 3, it would seem like we beat ourselves. 6 times we were in the redzone, and how many of those times did we fumble or have a penalty? Probably every one. We showed, that if we don't make stupid penalties and turn it over in the redzone, we can easily beat the eagles, and on their field too.

    Sure the eagles won and have a better record, so they should be ranked ahead of us, but really, we know that we can easily beat them if we play smarter, which would mean we think we are better than them.

    NFL coaches power poll

    Skolpepper is why we are rated this high. We are feared on the offensive side of the ball. He has kept the ball from being intercepted very well so far and has helped our offense put up big numbers. Moss does help, alot.

    5 is fair for now. I don't want to be any higher than that in a poll, I want to see it on the field. Not is someones writing. If I wanted to be higer on a poll it would be in a defensive poll. No one has to tell me or you how good our offense is. I want to be hearing about our defense that would make me happiest.

    Besides, when they voted, they had to go with the obvious undefeated teams that have good offenses. And the Colts lost to the Pats on a INT at the Goal line.

    Heck if the Pack had one more win, they might be ranked 5 with us behind them. That would be F'd up.

    Where did the pack place in this anyway?
