    We've already got bragging rights over the packers for this season. What more could you ask

That means hopefully getting a wild card by beating the Browns, Lions, Rams, and Ravens. None of those wins would get us respect, but they could get us a playoff spot.
    Unfortunately I don't think that will get us in as a wild card, we need the division. If we finish 9-7 and the Falcons, T.Bay and Carolina all finish 9-7 (which they should at least since they are 7-3 or 6-4 now) then we don't get in over ANY of them ... maybe we sneak by Atlanta if they continue to fold ... but I dont like our chances for a Wild Card. We need to get to 10-6 to be safe ...

    It seems when we are the medias darling we fold. I like the build of this team right now, we don't need those bafoons telling us we're good.

    TRUE

    the wild card is out of the question. We have lost to every single team that will be in contention for the Wild Card. We have to win the division and the team has to have the attitude we have to win out by playing one game at a time.

    Re: Still No Respect

    Anybody watch Around the horn today? all four analysts (JA Adande, Mariotti, woody paige (my favorite) and that macmullen hag) thought the vikings didn't have a chance. Well, surprisingly, the only one out of the 4 who said they had a ray of light was mariotti from chicago. Oh well, this usually seems to help us win.
    I Love Kerry Collins (and John Rocker).

    Re: Still No Respect

    If we win out, we will get the respect we deserve! And our guys KNOW THIS, so they will do all of their talking on the field...one game at a time!

    There is a poll on http://nfl.com/ Asking how the Vikings will do the rest of the season. Options are:
    + No better than 7-9
    +A wild card berth
    +Win the North Division

    "No better than 7-9 is winning in a walk!
    Those are not a very good number of choices. I think a 8-8 or 9-7 would do well on that poll ... I honestly think we are going to go 10-6 and get in as a Wild Card or Division champ, but I dont think we get in at 9-7, which outside of us Vikes fans, I doubt many people think we get to any better than 9-7.

    Well not every team. We did beat the Giants. So we want the Giants to fold down the stretch and the Falcons to fall all the way to 8-8, then we could get in as a Wild Card at 9-7 ... but you know ... if we win out we could get to 11-5 and possibley get to a bye ... yeah I said it!
