    Viking Fan Negativity??

    I cant stand the people on here who think we dont have a chance of anything. Sure our defense is shady but once the playoffs start (assuming a Win over the dead-skins) a fresh start maybe just what the defense needs. All the negative Viking fans need to rethink the way they put down our Minnesota VIkings because there are other teams out there that have it alot worse than we do. We are very lucky to have a team that can compete with the best in the NFL. Once the playoffs start, we will be just 4 wins away from a Super Bowl.

    Vikings tailgate at Fed Ex tomorrow starts at 10:00am in the Green parking section in F40 any questions feel free to email me

    Hey we have a right to be negative...but optimisic....Fact is. the defense sucks and just because we get into the playoffs doesn't mean they are all of a sudden going to start playing well, although I would love for this to happen.....but you'd be fooling yourself if you thought this....

    We do have a chance...any team always has a chance...shoot, the 49ers have a chance to beat the steelers, but even though you have a chance, how good of a chance is it.

    We can compete with any team in the league..but our defense needs to show up, grow some balls and stop somebody...then we'll have a legitimate chance....

    P.S. our offense has to score more than 3 points in the second half...

    Yeah, and our Defense cannot afford to give Ramsey the Manning treatment (make Ramsey look as good as Manning). Or Hutchinson.

    Thats BS eaters, we dont deserve it? Then who does deserve it, we won eitght games, we earned those games. Like i told somebody else, i would like to see you tell the whole team and coaching staff they dont deserve it, thats BS man. Just total bullsh*t statement.

    I think there's been extra bashing this year because of the big expectations coming into the season, our DB's were coming off huge years, we got A Dub, we got what we thought was a great D Cordinator so there were alot of good expectations. We start loosing games the team is inconsistent, so alot of people are upset. But right now i'm really really exited about our chances to go to the playoffs. It's been so long its hard to remeber the last one. I'm pumped for the chance to go to the playoffs. Once we get there its do or die, records dont mean sh*t, win or go home.

    Viking,
    I understand what you're saying, man. At the beginning of the season, there were little expectations for the Packers. After five games, "little" became "no." In the end, however, the Packers suprised their fans: making the playoffs, and taking the NFC North title with them. This was totally unexpected. I almost don't know what to say.

    Re: Viking Fan Negativity??

    What I can't stand is fans who seem to think it is wrong for us to say negative things about our team. Are you a better fan for thinking only good things about them? NO.

    We have the right to say whatever we want about our team, it is our opinion. Just because it isn't your opinion or because it is negative, does not mean it is wrong or we are less fans. We don't claim that our opinion is superior or is always right, but it is our feelings.

    FACT: For a team to win in the playoffs, they need to have a good D. We don't, thus we truely have no shot in the playoffs unfortunately. Indy is another team, that no matter how well manning is playing this year, they will not win in the playoffs because their D sucks. We also don't have a coach capable of coaching a super bowl team.

    These are facts that unfortunately point to us losing in the playoffs. Do I want these things to be true? No. But I see the team for what it is and it is just an average team with a horrible D and coach.

    I agree with you about one thing muchluv, and that is that fans can say negative things about our team. I do sometimes, and I don't think that makes me a bad fan. However, to say we have no chance just isn't true. Read this article (which I wasn't around to see happen, but I wish I was): http://www.vikings.com/news_detail_OBJECTNAME_JoshColumnSpecial123004.htm l

    "The playoffs are the reason the game is played, and 1987 is proof that anything can happen once a team is there."

    Sure every team has a little chance, but realistically, we don't have much at all with Tice and our horrible D. Coaching and D, are the 2 most important things when a team is in the playoffs. We probably have the worst, of the playoff teams, in both those areas

    When was the last time a team with a 28th or 29th ranked defense won a Super Bowl? Never. Same goes for the Packers D who are one spot above the Vikings D.
