    we're definetially not contendrs thats for sure.
    but then again, they're not pretending to be terrible either, they actually are, so your question has no answer!

    There is no chance we are contenders this year.
    I would like to see us show promise that we are getting better, that we have the determination, that we have some talent.
    Personally, i think this team lacks a star, a real driving force, yeah we've got some great players i. e Winfield, Birk, Hutchinson, Williams and Williams etc etc.
    But none of them shout out to me like they give this team an edge.
    Personally i want childress to draft somebody who is gonna be a franchise player, someone who shows leadership as well as talent, preferably a wide reciever who we can call the go-to-guy.
    Ill be happy as long as the Vikes show the remotest ability to put points on the board!At the mo, we're truly dekcuf as i think most will agree.
    Thats why we need to draft AP.
    I got my fingers and toes crossed for AP baby!!!!

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

    Get a grip.

    Exactly.
    Yeah, sure it's kinda fun to look over the schedule and make ridiculous predictions on how many games will be won/lost.

    How many people thought New Orleans would win 10 games last year?
    Not many, I'm sure.

    Who thought San Francisco would finish with their record, with the horrid season they had a year before?

    The Jets had a greatly improved season over the previous year.

    Those are just a few examples.

    I will refrain from making predictions on win/loss records at this juncture in the offseason.
    I'd rather focus on the draft for now, and see if the team improves a little (on paper, of course!).
    Overall, I thought the Vikings had a pretty good draft last year; just about everyone contributed in a positive way.

    Re: vikings! contenders or pretenders?

    there is NOOOO way we are pretenders.....seriously



    ...because in order to be pretenders don't people have to think we were contenders at one point? and that is definately not the case for this vikings squad for the upcoming season..

    yea, at the same time, we've picked up garbarge in free agency.
    That has got to be one of the more uneducated and unsubstantiated comments I have heard.
    Are you familiar with the term role players at all?
    Or team?

    our offense last year was filled with "role players" and it sucked big time!

    lets look at our offense couple years agowith some star power(randy moss, culpepper, J

    wiggs,Nate b) our offense was feared around the league! why was that o yea, star power

    that in which we dont have. ALL playoffs teams last year had a dangerous weapon on

    offense/defense! so tell me who was the biggest free agent signing? BOBBY WADE!

    WAIT MIKE DOSS......NOW WE HAVE A GROUP OF SAFETIES(thats not a need). i though so!

    The draft isnt really deep(for us) we cant take 4 wide receivers in a row. unless we make

    a trade to number 3 or something we might suffer another long year of a terrible offense.

    We'll be like the bears a fews years ago, solid running game and great defense no


    passing attack!
