    Yes, they were too soft in camp, not ready to play when the season started. The QB didn't come until after the preseason was well under way and missed the whole camp....I think I heard that somewhere before.
    We win two of our last 5 games and now we get a week off?
    Yes.

    Yup. That's how it works when you win 12 games in a season.

    You just can't be happy no matter what, can you?

    Yes.
    Our secondary should have double practices all week.

    If this makes sense to Childress, there's no way it can be good for this team.

    Re:Vikings won't practice this week

    I guess they earned the week off, I would hope though that the players are doing everything they can to be ready in two weeks. Winning should be more important than vacation time. Any word on what other teams are doing, or what teams have done in the past would be interesting.

    I found this interesting, though it probably belongs in a different thread.

    Yes, they could use the time off to dissect themselves, but they might not like what they see. Difficult to prepare for a team, when there are multiple possibilities. Nothing wrong with relaxing for a couple days, they've earned it.

    Re:Vikings won't practice this week

    I like this Idea

    Smart move, wouldnt get much accomplished with a week of practise anyway players will benefit more from rest.

    The coaches will still be working: analyzing film, prepping game plans ect

    Looks like the players are happy about the decision.

    Players happy to have bye, rest

    What are your thoughts? I would have like to see us work on pass protection a bit more. The teams we are going to be playing bring pressure( Greenbay, Arz, Cowboys, Eagles).
    From what I understand, the only team we cant play in the divisional round is the eagles, since they are the #6 seed, if they win they will play the saints.

    And that is also the only scenario we will play host to the packers, since they have the #5 seed.

    Ill try to break it down for ya:

    PHI over DAL & GB over ARI gives GB @ MIN
    PHI over DAL & ARI over GB gives ARI @ MIN
    DAL over PHI & GB over ARI gives DAL @ MIN
    DAL over PHI & ARI over GB gives Dal @ MIN

    (this is from my understanding that the #1 seed is going to play the lowest seed left from the wildcard round)

    Adding some more plays to the offense might be nice. Same with some special teams coverage and return ideas. Rest will be important, but do not want rust to be shown.
