    In order to answer the question of whether the Vikings are getting better or not you would first have to define the scale of time you're looking at and which parts of the game you're looking at.
    My reference to them getting better is in regard to having a longer-term plan implemented that is more complex than putting bandaids on an scheme that has been run for over a decade in Minnesota.



    Some people think it is blind homerism to still believe in the Vikings this year.
    Sloppy play, penalties galore, turnovers, and all the other inadequacies found on offense, special teams, and even defense.
    I always have hope in the team until they are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.
    Have you looked at the other teams vying for a wildcard spot in the NFC?
    There are some very inconsistent teams involved in this race, the team that gets it together gets to have their jiggly butt handed to them in the first round of the playoffs probably....but finishing the season strong and having confidence going into next year is worth something.


    This year, the main culprit that is easiest to spot is the offensive offense.
    The ground game of the offense has been doing well.
    If someone mentions 'air attack' while talking about the Vikings I typically wonder why they changed the topic and are talking about Iraq.
    The bottom-line is the interim QB didn't work out as planned by the coaching staff.
    This wasn't a grasp at straws like Schaub would have been.
    BJ had an established reputation as being a game manager and consistent, well, he hasn't held true to his colors.
    Couple that with losing 'marginal' Burleson in the 'reverse poison pill debacle' and MRob in the 'post nationally televised giving him accolades for being a hero drunk driving chase' and the #7 overall pick not being able to catch a velcro child's toy, an underperforming QB with marginal backup QBs, and new schemes and you end up with an offense that is luckily, at least, holding their own when it comes to the running game.

    Somebody was saying that it doesn't matter that over 70% of our losses this year were by less than a TD.
    I say kaka del toro.
    Having control of penalties alone would have resulted in a few more wins.
    Start putting a fix on the array of problems, all fixable and not major, the team could turn things around.
    This year?
    Doubtful, but possible.
    Next year?
    Hell yes.
    New QB, WRs, more comfort with the system working on fine-tuning rather than implementation.
    I would be surprised if the team isn't back where it's suppose to be, respected, within a few years.

    Zygi is possibly the best owner in football.
    He's willing to put money into non-cap investments like the coaching staff and is fighting for a new stadium.
    I have never heard of someone offering to put up $1B of their own money to subsidize a stadium.
    Wilf also made a run on picking up the best coaching staff available in the offseason.
    He played hardball when other teams were still figuring out how to adjust the T.

    The future is bright.
    The team is on the right track, without leadership there is no hope.
    For the first time in a long time I am optimistic about the leaders of this team.
    Whoa, dude, shut off the computer and do something else, just for a little bit. I promise you can come back on later. You need to find a NON-COMPUTER and NON-VIKING hobby. Not to be a jerk, but come on, Really?

    This paragraph to me would suggest that it isn't necessarily Brad Johnson's fault.
    He is in the same position that I felt DC was in last year, and that was trying to hard to get that win.
    I am not advocating for BJ to be the QB next year but getting rid of him might not be an answer to our problems.
    Finding a QB on the next tier is.

    I agree with the post about the Red Zone Offense and the Penalties.

    Turnovers and Penalties alone would have given us 3 more wins.
    But that position could probably be taken by the teams that have lost to us.
    In the end, it comes down to being able to score more points than the other team.
    Even if you have to score with your D and Special Teams like the Bears do.

    This is totally uncalled for!
    I see nothing in this thread that would warrant a response like that.

    Please stick to the thread.
    If you have some comment about what was posted by another member, talk about the post.
    Your post is directed at the poster and not the post itself.

    Don't diss him for stating his opinion and putting some content into his post. It's a good argument and a well thought out post. We need more posters like Acumen.

    This crap is the reason we have Acumen instead of Prophet.
    More of this and we won't have Acumen or anyone who brings any substance anymore.
    Just dipshits like this kid.


    And no, nobody cares about your opinion about one of the best posters on this site, especially after a well thought post.
