    It's only been two preseason games, but some things are starting to fall into place for the Minnesota Vikings.....

    Good article, Singer, with some good observations, I don't think Robison will be a starter though. But I agree with the rest of the news clip.

    Nice read Singer.

    Get the "Official Bandwagon Jumper" forms out.
    Another good showing this weekend against the Seahawks and the hacks will start gushing..........

    You know I loved this quote.......... ;D

    Brad Childress is the right coach for Minnesota.

    Toward the end of last season, his first at the helm, Minnesota's head coach caught a lot of flak from fans and media. Childress, as well as anyone, knows it comes with the territory and the 2-8 finish will upset a fan base. However, he has a great football mind and has earned the respect of his players. Childress has given up the play-calling duties, which was one of the main gripes of his detractors, allowing him to manage the entire situation going on in a game. The team is improving, and it has the chance to surprise this year. Minnesota is heading in the right direction under the guidance of Childress.

    Great article.....I am happy that for now Childress is not getting blasted too much.

    Our offense this year will be vanilla again.
    Great rushing game, short safe passes, strong defense.
    We will play the field position game.
    We are no longer a quick strike high scoring offense.
    We are a team that will try and be smart and safe, and move the chains.

    Re: Preseason thought process on the Vikings

    Despite a dropped pass last Friday, he has established a great rapport with quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and has been a good influence in the locker room. Wade is currently slated to be the No. 1 receiver, although he would be better suited to play in the slot. In any event, Wade is a solid route runner and should have a good season.
    I think Wade is batter than Taylor.
    I wanted to like Taylor, but he just never did anything to impress.
    I really liked the YAC move that Wade made.
    I hope he can continue with the YAC.


    BTW, watched the Raiders vs Niners game on NFLN today, and Taylor dropped two passes, both thrown by Walters.


    Peterson's 43-yard run against the Jets, preseason or not, was phenomenal, and it showed that his collarbone and shoulders are completely healed.
    It is easy to say completely healed until he does that and a day later, they say he cracked his collarbone or something like that.
    I just don't like to see that hit on AP.
    I liked it, but I don't like it at the same time.
