    Playoffs -Outside Looking In

    with the giants, san francisco, st louis all losing today, we are still statisically in it.

    im not too hopeful after the amount of injurys/bust's/qb problems/turnovers.

    our defense is stellar and our run game is huge.
    why dont we have a field day and just run all day, might as well just hand it off too a steady dose of c.t, moore, and fason? <-- he had a huge game today.

    anyways, still i dont think we have too much of a shot, but the rest of the nfc is sucking it up also.

    ill be at the lions game next week, so im hoping to see some more changes.

    but wow, good job D..
    im sorry our O has to turn it over so much.


    anyone else think they even have a slim chance?

    Hey,have fun at the Detroit game! Hope the Vikes can get a win. As for their chances of getting a wildcard,well....that sounds like math or something ,so I can't really say.

    We can get in if we win the rest of our games, and a meteor kills the other wild card teams

    No way, no how.. The Vikings had no idea at all that the other NFC teams were going to lose today, and they fell flat on their faces.. They knew going into this game in Chicago that it was a must win in order to keep their playoff hopes alive, and what do they do? They suck it up in every way possible and lose the game..

    It is like they don't care at all as long as those paychecks keep coming in.. Brad Childress absolutely sucks at play calling, and Brad Johnson is showing everybody exactly why it was that Washington, and Tampa Bay let him go.. He is a "old QB" that has lost a step or two when in his entire career he only had a step or two..

    The Vikings IMHO, have no shot at making the playoffs this season.. They knew how important this game against Chicago was, and they messed it up like usual.. There are other teams that deserve it more, and at this moment, they should make it before the Vikings do.. This reminds me alot of those days like 2 years ago when they had Arizona beat to make it to the playoffs and they got lazy and ended up losing the game and not making the playoffs.. Or like the 98 NFC Championship game against the Giants when they got demolished at home knowing all that they had to do was stick to the gameplan that got them there and they would be in the SB.. They may have different players, a different owner, and different coaches, but one thing is the same, they play with no heart..

    Yeah even if we some how did make wild-card, it would be a waist of time for our opponent. The offense has just played way too bad (worst redzone team in NFL) with BC's horrible calls when we actually do make it to the redzone.

    Now is all I have to look forward to is watching my Boise State broncos smoke Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl.

    If we win out ... I feel like we have a legitimate shot to get in at 9-7 ... if the Panthers happen to lose to the Eagles on MNF, then the 5 and 6 seeds would be sitting at 6-6 and on pace for 8-8 ... I don't really like our chances at 8-8, but 9-7 seems quite possible as it would put us at 8-4 in the NFC giving us a nice tie-breaker over a handful of teams (Eagles, Giants, Falcons in particular).
    We definitely have four winnable games, and a chance to make a run ... but I personally do not like our chances as a Wild Card going into either New Orleans, Dallas, or back to Seattle.
    I still hold that glimmer of hope ... and it definitely is not IMPOSSIBLE like many will say ... it can become impossible pretty quickly with one more loss.

    It's best to hang onto hope until death.
    The offseason is already too long.

    I agree. Hope is good.
    I was watching a program on the Rams and Vermeil back in the late '90s. His 3rd year back, they finally won the big game. After 2 long poo years working on it. It made me even more hopeful for us.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
