    The Vikes have been in MN since the mid 1960's.
    If the stadium bill is dependent on the season in which it is introduced then MN has no business having an NFL franchise.

    :
    I think it is pretty obvious that without a winning season next year there is no way in hell that a stadium bill will get passed.
    3/4 of the state legislature is facing an election year, and if they publicly vote for an expensive stadium bill for a 6-10 team, they will get killed.
    Minnesota has always been a tough sell for publicly funded stadiums.

    But that doesn't mean that they don't deserve the Vikings.

    It is hard for me to believe that the Vikings are expected to be worse then last year.
    I want to know that author's credentials.
    Lol. . .
    There is no reason to think the Lions will improve that much from last year even though Calvin Johnson was a stud in college.
    The Packers are in chaos and for every Favre-shining moment that ESPN will replay over and over again, he will throw a 5 pick game against the likes of the Chargers with his usual gusto.
    The Bears are an enigma as player dissent is evident in Chicago and Grossman is still totally inept.
    No one can predict what each team's records are going to be, I mean no one thought the Chargers would be 14-2 last year and that the Saints would be one win from the Super Bowl.
    Tell that write to step into the PPO and I guarantee he/she wouldn't come back alive.

    Re: Vikes LAST in NFC North

    Personally I am glad when we are ranked low in these polls. There have been so many times in the past when we have been picked to go to the Super Bowl by analysts and then when we fall short, they have to rip the club for being underachievers and the fans get a dose of anti-love over it so I prefer to take my chances on having a better year than everybody expects. It all comes down to the coaching staff and whether they can correct some of their inflexibility and start to counter opposing coaches adjustments.

    I really think that ALL the football mags rush to 1st on the newsrack after the draft.

    These mags can help with Fantasy football in many cases, but that is it.

    I can see the Vikings finishing second in the division.
    The Bears lost Jones (possibly Briggs), but I think Benson will step up for Jones sufficiently.
    Grossman is pretty touch and go, as you all know, but he might make some improvements.
    Even as weird as he was last year, they still made the big game.

    The Packers just don't look any better now then they were last year, in fact, they look worse to me.

    The Lions are the Lions.
    They've had sure fire, go to receivers about a billion drafts in a row.
    That position doesn't usually make huge differences in year one, anyway.

    So, I can see the Vikings finishing ahead of both the Packers and the Lions, but significantly behind the Bears.

    Re: Vikes LAST in NFC North

    "Experts" making predictions before the season even starts.
    What are they basing their decisions on?
    Could it be our inexperienced QB situation, or unproven WR corps, or a line that did not play up to its potential at times last year, or an offense that was truly offensive at times?

    Still, I dont think we are last, and I believe we challenge for a playoff spot.

    Re: Vikes LAST in NFC North

    Good I like being the under dog. We do have a lot of questions.

    1. QB

    2. WR

    3. Pass Rush

    4. Coaching

    5. Pass Def

    I'm not surprised we got a low rank. I think we will finish ahead of the Lions and Packers. Packers no RB and the Lions well they are just the Lions.

    I think GB has the best receving corp in the divison. Driver/Jennings/KRob.
