    Vikings 75% underdog on cbssportsline

    http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/gamecenter/preview/NFL_20060911_MIN@WAS

    I suppose its good to be underestimated but how can they be such overwhelming favorites if they dont even know if clinton portis is gonna play?

    Not surprising.
    Exactly where we want to be, I would be happier if nobody thought they had a chance to win.

    us who have watched and followed the Vikings all offseason know what we should be fine.
    But if you take an outsider that hasnt watched us that closely they are going to see a lot of question marks, losing a pro bowl QB, our top 2 WR's, and we have an unporven RB.
    That is an awful lot of question marks!

    They are docking us heavily because they do not feel we have a threat at WR.

    It's fair enough. There are a lot of questionmarks on our team. Just because we know/think we can overcome them, doesn't mean everyone else belives that.

    And after all we are playing a playoff team, away, on monday night.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Combined total receiving production lost from last year.

    2 TD's

    That is not that much to lose!

    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Well since he said Wide Receiver that narrows it down a bit.

    Nate averaged 11 yards per reception. I guess you could argue that he should be slotted as #2 behind Taylor.

    Koren Robinson however couldn't be considered our 2nd best WR because he has never done shit for us at WR. His importance to our team was all expectation and no production.
