    Optimism thread

    New England Patriots: 3-2
    Seattle Seahawks: 1-4
    Minnesota Vikings: 3-3

    The Vikings are tied for 1st in the division. Adrian Peterson will fumble less as the season goes on, and will continue to pick up yardage. The only team that the Vikings couldn't compete with was the Tennesse Titans, who are 5-0 on the year.

    Our defense can tackle this year. They can cover receivers. The offensive line is healthy and starting to gel.

    We have an experienced, tough quarterback who can throw for over 300 yards in a game, lead the Vikings to a come-from-behind victory, and balance the offense. Shiancoe is catching the ball. Kleinsasser is catching the ball. Peterson is catching the ball. Everybody's catching the ball.

    The toughest part of the schedule is already behind us. We have a game in Chicago that gives us a chance to separate from the Bears, and later a home game against the Packers.

    The coldest game of the regular season will be on Sunday, mid-October, against the Bears. The rest of the way will have indoor games and warm-weather games.

    The Lions, Bears, and Cowboys all lost yesterday.

    The Vikings have the ability to compete with any team in the NFL, except maybe the Giants and Titans.

    We're a team that can do better than 8-8.


    Go Vikings!

    They almost beat the Titans and they beat the Jints to the tune of 42-17 last year when they won the SB.
    If they minimize turnovers and penalties there is a chance.

    I would be alot more optomistic if it were true that the Offensive Line is gelling.

    I am optimistic that some people will complain even if the Vikings win the SB.....they didn't deserve the win, the refs gave them the game, WTF....a pass on third and short.....Allen is overpaid and is unproductive...TJack is a whiner...Childress likes crossdressers.....

    Oh wait, that maybe doesn't count as optimism.

    If the Lions can lose, no team is safe!

    IMHO, it's even better than that.
    The Vikings were in the GB and Indy losses right up until the end.
    Basically the same thing against TN, but a bit earlier to the bus.
    6 games - no big crushing defeats like NE absorbed last night in San Diego.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    All right, Gus did get close to 300 yards, AP went well over 100, and the defense played pretty hard all game.
    Berrian has had two big games in a row, and is the first Vikings WR to go over 100 two weeks in a row since Burleson back in 2004.
    (pretty sure that was the year Moss had all the Hammy problems...)
    We're 3 and 3, tied for the division and we have played some close games against good opponents.


    IMHO The frustration stems from the reoccurance of the same problems over and over.
    Granted, they have been improving, and Gus is 3-1 as a starter.
    But it has been a slow, painful process and we're still making too many stupid mistakes...the kind of stuff that should be eliminated, or at least reduced, with a bit more focus.
    We can still get a winning record and into the playoffs, but we're going to need to see a lot more focus and perhaps, some inspiration!!!
    ;D

    We would have taken these kind of numbers this time last year, I for one am optimistic that things will pick up. The defense is making big plays and still missing a few. Offensive line WILL improve which inevitably means a more productive offense!

    Bring on the rest of the season and those over acheiving Bears, Sunday!!
