    PFT's Preseason Power Rankings

    Here we go again...OUCH!
    No. 30 of 32, only OAK AND ATL behind us!!

    I sure hope they're wrong!!
    And, that other teams take a win against us for granted, so we can sneak up and surprise some

    I guess if we're 4-12 we may be looking at a franchise QB :-X

    Re: PFT's Preseason Power Rankings

    I saw that earlier but decided not to post it because there is no reason for everyone to get their panties in a bunch.
    It is a fair ranking right now, and they at least supported it with some facts, like how NE showed every team the blue print for how to beat us... Rankings like are meant to change as teams grow and fall.


    Also keep in mind that there are some positives:
    But there's still some hope.
    If the team shortens games with a heavy dose of the run game and a simplified passing attack with plenty of throws to the halfbacks and gradually builds the confidence of Jackson, the Vikings could get off to a good start again . . . and hopefully not collapse as they did a year ago.

    history says that when the Vikes are ranked high they fold like a paper house.
    However, when we fly under the radar in preseason, theres less pressure and the team performs better.
    I think we were ranked in the middle back in 98.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    If we finish the season 4-12...Chilly is going to have a lot of explaining to do.
    And if he doesn't drastically improve for 08' he can kiss his job goodbye.

    I really think we'll do better than 4-12 though.
    I can't imagine us doing any worse than last season.
    It's not like we've lost anybody big.
    I guess if TJack chokes on a pickle, and Brooks can't get it done either, than we might be in trouble.
