I can understand being disappointed by our team's performance, but some of you guys really amaze me.
With a few exceptions, everyone seems to be going off on a major rant tonight. Peterson can't block, he's horrible. TJack (still) can't make a single good decision. The OL might as well have been asleep out there, they all suck except maybe Hutch. Nobody except Cook can play in the defensive backfield. Receivers can't catch anything. Oh, Gerhart maybe looks a little better but still mediocre.
For God's sake, it is preseason game 2. The way some of you are bitching, we might as well throw in the towel right now.
Come on, have a little faith. This is OUR team. We are VIKINGS fans, let's act like it.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that you have no right to complain. Of course you do. But you could try to be a bit less vituperative.
I haven't been able to actually watch the game yet, but I'll say this much. As far as I am concerned, it means nothing. Preseason... the old adage about believing only half of what you see and none of what you hear is even more true right now.
I was not at all surprised to hear about Favre's performance, or lack thereof. He's been back for all of four days. Nobody, and I mean nobody, gets in full swing that fast.
Timing is still off, guys are out of synch. Yeah, that's bound to happen, and it's bound to get better as we move ahead. We still have a lot of starters not at full health, as well.
I believe. I believe that when it counts, we'll be ready.
I believe (although my rational mind knows better) that we will win every game, up to and including the Super Bowl. I believe that we're the best team in the NFL.
And I'll accept criticism, as log as it is reasoned and constructive. Unfortunately, what I've been seeing here tonight is mostly emotional, knee-jerk reaction, venemous tripe.
But I forgive you. I know how it can get. I've been there too, right with you, so many times that I can't even count them any more.
Call it rose-colored (or purple) glasses, call me a pollyanna, say whatever you like. I prefer optimism and faith. The Vikings are my team, and I will support them through the worst as well as the best.
I know you'll be there with me.
