    Re: Are the Vikings a playoff team?

    Did we really need yet another "Are the Vikings a playoff team?" thread?

    For being a lawyer & used to doing research, you have yet to master the "search" function we have on PP.O. Or you simply choose to not use it & just post away.

    Re: Are the Vikings a playoff team?

    If it wasn't for a couple of boneheaded plays in '07 they would have made it in last year.
    So, it's not too difficult to believe that they will be a playoff team this year.
    Tarvaris has another year under his belt, have a few new WRs, Williamson finally was pushed off the plank, ?Allen will help put more pressure on opposing QBs, Purple Jesus is ripe for action, there are many things to look forward to.
    If you look at the offseasons (FA, UFAs, draft) since Wilf has become the owner they have been exciting.

    "10. Are the Vikings a playoff team?

    Yes. Adrian Peterson is one of the game's most exciting players and Jared Allen makes their defensive line the best in the NFL. Tarvaris Jackson made strides at the end of last season, and if he can continue to improve, Minnesota should be favored in the NFC North."
    So why are certain Packer fans saying we have no chance in hell? Everyday I have to here the same crap at work that we
    are still the shitty Vikings. Then they proceed to say how many Super Bowls they won. I can't stand this state.

    Re: Are the Vikings a playoff team?

    If the playoffs started today, the Vikings would qualify, along with 31 other teams, so, yes, they are a playoff team.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    You need to get your 'final word' rankings out.
    Some asshats are already putting theirs out.

    Re: Are the Vikings a playoff team?

    Of course we are a playoff team.

    Every team is a play off team in April.
    Every year there is a surprise team in the playoffs - so you can't discount anybody.

    (Of course, I have a better feeling about the Vikings than I do for any other team...)

    Re: Are the Vikings a playoff team?

    No way.

    ... just kidding ! YES, we are a playoff team in '08 !!
    ;D

    It is a lock. Reasons:

    - Best running game in football
    - Best D-line in the NFL
    - We thus own the line of scrimmage on both sides, and have an "inside-out" philosophy that is working (by that I mean that we have built our team from the LOS outward, rather than getting so-called "skilled players" (WRs) first.

    - We are a bit weak in the passing game, but I think that there is big upside there, and it will only get better. By this I mean that either Tarvaris will minimize errors, or Frerotte or even Booty will come in and take over. Rice + Berrian will be good.

    I see this team being like 10-6 in the regular season, or maybe 11-5 and winning the NFC North. After that, we can, IMHO, beat ANY NFC team.

    Got some bad news... we had all those highlighted things last year too... we finished 8-8 without making the playoffs.
