    Reasonable/Unreasonable Expectations

    Wow....have taken in so much here after the GB Debockle. Lots of great Info and posts to digest.

    I was wondering what some of YOU other fans here think are REASONABLE expectations from the Team the remainder of this season, the off season, and into next season.

    Here are some of mine:

    I Expect to see ANY Vikings Team prepared to play all games hard....and especially be upbeat and ready to beat Division Rivals.

    I Expect to see consistancy in performance on both sides of the ball.

    I Expect to see depth at positions and the ability to come into a game missing a key player or two and still find ways to win.

    I Expect Coaches to be able to build on Positive wins/games and find ways to carry that emotion into the following week using it to keep players motivated and playing hard.

    I Expect to be able to compete with ANY team in the NFL and see the mental fortitude in the entire franchise to expect to win ANY game they play...on any field they play on.

    I Expect off season deals....trades....drafts...done with TOP/APEX thinking instead of mediocre/might be ab improvement risks.

    I Expect players to carry there weight and perform at the 100 percent in Training camp...practices....and games.

    I Expect Coaches to be able to come up with a variety of uses and plays for RBs, Recievers, and the QB.

    I Expect Coaches to have looked at game film...analyzed it correctly....made the appropriate adjustments and have the team ready to implement them on game day.

    I Expect the team to play as a unit....to come together as a well oiled machine and realize that no one part is greater than the whole.

    I Expect the Owner to spend the cash and offer the encentives to attract and keep players happy and giving there all in Minnesota.

    Those are a few of mine....Please add some of yours folks. Also....feel free to add or comment on anything you might feel is Unreasonable so I can get a cross section of debate.

    Thanks everyone.....Cheers!

    Re: Reasonable/Unreasonable Expectations

    I can't add any to the team my friend.
    Very good list.

    I will add:

    I expect the fans to support the team through thick and thin.

    Pretty tall order huh?
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Yes....I guess it is for some Marrdro....Guys like me that have been through so much over the years with this Franchise are not going anywhere?? I will always support the team...and will be the first to admit that at times I am overly critical of them....Comes from my Apex desire to win I guess.??


    Cheers!

    Re: Reasonable/Unreasonable Expectations

    I EXPECT a passing game.

    I EXPECT our coaches and owner to improve the passing game we have.

    I EXPECT that an effort will be made to bring in a QB this off-season.

    I EXPECT to use our likely good draft position to draft a QB.

    I expect Brad to show us what this so called "kick ass offense" can do in the passing game with Adrian out.

    I expect, at the very least, improvement in the overall team.

    I expect that although I will keep tuning to every game like I always have, I expect it's going to get a lot more painful.
