    As for your question, the Vikings are always contenders.

    Re: vikings! contenders or pretenders?

    At this time there is no argument to make for the Vikes being contenders.
    We don't have anyone to throw the ball to the guys who can't catch.
    Until something is done about this, this team will continue to be a trainwreck.
    Add to that Brad's kick jiggly butt offense and the argument is even harder to make.

    oakland upgraded their backfield. jerry porter is bak, the defense is solid.

    if they draft
    j-rus or get a decent qb, they look better on paper.

    Dear God, it's only April.
    Free agency is 1/2 over, tops and the draft hasn't happened yet.

    Get a grip.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    yea, at the same time, we've picked up garbarge in free agency.

    the draft is a toss up b/c it depends on the top 6, there also to many question marks on the players in the draft.

    After watching our team struggle all last season we have the right 2 complain about losing.

    Every team, including the Vikings, are contenders this early in the off-season.

    Porter...Porter...you've got to be kidding?
    Oh yeah, their defense is solid...barely.
    They have no o-line, no running back, their recievers are highly questionable, no QB, and most importantly, they have an owner who will stop at nothing to drive that pathetic team into the ground.

    Better on paper....I think not.

    they have dominic rhodes and a modern playbook(now)
    their wide recceivers r way betta than ours.
    their pass defense is better.
    their qb situation is just as uncertain as ours.

    Oakland's O-line was a joke last year, especially in pass protection. Did you see them against the Chargers? Aaron Brooks had Shawne Merriman in the backfield as soon as the ball was snapped. They were awful.

    Obviously it's hard to say whether the Vikes will be contenders or not, but I have a hard time thinking they will be.

    IMO, Tarvaris is still a ways away from leading this team to the playoffs. He just hasn't had enough experience. If they draft Brady Quinn, he won't be any different. The front office will probably draft a wide receiver, but very few WR's come in and light up the scoreboard in their first year. A talented rookie wideout will help this team, but he won't be enough to elevate our offense quite yet.

    I foresee another year of running the ball and low scoring games for our offense.
