    Vikings Offensive Rankings

    [size=13pt]Vikings Offensive Rankings via ESPN.com[/size]

    The folks over at the four-letter have spent this week breaking the NFL offenses down into different units (QBs, RBs, WRs, TEs, and OL) and ranking them from 1 to 32.
    (There's no point in linking, since only the Top 10 rankings in each category are visible to most of the viewing population.)
    Allow me to present you with what Bristol University thinks of the different parts of the Vikings' offense here now....

    That was a GREAT READ singer. It took all the perceived "ups" and "downs" of the Vikes this year and put them into a proper perspective. And when you do that, the Vikes don't look half bad compared to the rest of the NFC North. And yoou know, even with the poor season last year (wins and losses comparison) we were in a lot of games that we could have just as easily won as we did lose.
    I think the Vikes will surprise a few people this year. If the running backs can stay healthy do as well as most people expect, teams will have to respect the running game which will give TJ or Bollinger a bit more time to find their receivers. It could be a real exciting season this year.
    I just pray AP stays healthy.

    Good read singer.
    Thanks.
    We might have the best running game in the league this season.
    We are going to need it too.

    Good to see you guys found my site.

    I've been trying to add it through the "Suggest Web Link" here for a while, but I can never tell if it works or not.

    But I'm glad you liked the story. . .and you're right, compared to the rest of the NFC North, we don't look as terrible as everyone seems to think.
    All the "experts" seem to think that the North this year is going to be Chicago and everybody else. . .I just don't see it that way.

    A lot around here will agree with that.
    Singer will find anything.

    Actually, it's a nickname I've had since I was 4. . .and it has nothing to do with either Hunter S. Thompson OR the Muppets (although I do greatly enjoy both of their works).

    Great read!! You need to post some more good stuff like that on here Gonzo! I don't care if ESPN ranked our WRs at #32. If I looked at them without purple shades on I would probably come to the same conclusion. But like Gonzo said....it has great potential.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    I'm very optimistic about our WR's. When Childress addressed them as eh equivalent of
    last year's LB's, that made me real giddy. He's a no non-sense guy and if they weren't up to snuff, he'd just say something like they're working hard and will continue to improve. But comparing them o a surprising solid unit last year brings hope to me.
