    Re: Vikings: Contender or Pretender for 2009?

    Looking at how the rest of the division is imploding it is hard to imagine how we could not win the division. We really should be a favorite to win the SB if we had the proper coaching staff and QB.

    Who cares if they bash or praise, as long as it is credible....
    His opinion is as credible as yours....
    How true.
    Problem is, I know my opinion isn't credible.
    I wonder about him?
    Since when?

    How about my first post on page one?


    With the defense still mainly intact from last season, and the offense on the rise, can this team really contend for a Super Bowl in 2008?

    We will have Heath Farwell back on ST this year and that makes me a lot more confident in their ability. Besides apart from QB this was our biggest issue last season so one assumes it will be tackled with more input this year to resolve the issues.

    Or is that just a dumb way of looking at it?

    No, Mark, not dumb.
    I just think it puts a lot on Farwell.
    The Special Teams problems were far greater than just one guy.

    I think the combination of healthy guys coming back, and a new ST coach will refocus our special teams, bring more effort, and make them far better(can't get much worse). Players have pride, and last season's performance on ST's can't sit well with them.

    Yes I did read the article. IMO when he talked about special teams he meant the punter and kicker and I think those guys are solid. As a unit we are pretty good when Farwell is around. The defense is intact. In fact we got better with guys like EJ, Gordon, and possible Udeze coming back. Sure Sharper left but I like Tyrell. Best safety in the draft last year. The offense is on the rise. IMO we will draft a WR in the first and grab a OL in the 2nd. Possibly both contributing a ton. We added Sage, who IMO, can be better than TJ. Can we contend for a Super Bowl this year? Hell yea, if QB play improves. So again I ask, what makes you wonder about this guys opinion?
