    This team should be like a well oiled machine, fresh out of the box.

    Maybe, just maybe, a couple of rudder orders to the helm for course adjustments if a few pot holes get in its path though.

    It all depends on how the season plays out.
    The majority of the games were lost by a score or less the past couple of years, that is a team that is ready to explode.

    In 2005 we went 8-4 and lost only one game of the last 9 by more than a TD.

    The team has been ready to explode for years
    "In 2005 we went 8-4 and lost only one game of the last 9 by more than a TD."

    Huh??

    In 2005, Vikes were 9-7, went 7-2 in last 9 games, and only won 4 by greater than a 7 points.

    Granted, 2005 was the last winning season, but even the performance that year was weak, lost 6 games by double digits, 4 by over 20 points.

    The last 2 years were rebuilding years under Childress, he's replaced 85% of the 2005 squad.

    The Vikes look good, with lots of key additions, but until I see them play top competion in GB and Indy.
    I'm not going to drink the purple koolaid yet.

    Unless Childress decides to start Booty, then the SB is a shoe in
    ;D ;D ;D

    As to the rest, yes, we look good and I hope we have an outstanding year. but We looked good finishing 2005 and was excited about having and outstanding 2006. Things just don't always play out the way we would like or that we expect. that is why they play the games instead of crowning the champs based on how good they should play going into the season.

    Re: This is OUR year!

    9 pages, some decent discussions and yet I never got my original question answered from the originator...... :'(


    Why do you think he needs a kick in the jiggly butt to realize he has to step up?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
