    I can amend my predictions only this much: We beat the Pack next time in our house.

    That leaves us at 8 wins and 8 losses.

    May we have better luck next year!
    Weren't the SuperBowl Champs of 2005, the Pittsburgh Steelers, 8-8 and made the playoffs or were they 9-7.

    Weird crap happens!
    Actually ... they were 11-5.

    NO team has ever won the Super Bowl without winning at least 10 regular season games. Only TWO teams have made the Super Bowl without winning 10 regular season games.

    How am I doing so far?



    Actually, I did this BEFORE Moss......so I may have to be a little more optimistic about a couple games coming up.

    Moss could be the "Miracle" I mentioned.

    The cool and dangerous Moss/Harvin combo could work even with Jackson.

    Doing exactly as good as me and you insulted my picks ...

    Hmmmm, stop raining on my parade! JK! Just trying to rally the troops. What was the freakish thing about Pitts record?

    OK, they were 8-5 when they played us, I was thinking they were 5-8 my bad. They still went in as a wild card. They had to win all three playoff games leading up to the SB on the road.

    Yeah ... they were 8-5 and clearly had to win out to get in ... and then they did win three road games ... with an upset of the Colts as the highlight. They then feasted on a weak NFC Champ (the No. 6 AFC seed Steelers were favored by nearly a TD over the No. 1 NFC seed Seahawks).

    We have lost all 4 games by an average of only 5.5 points, and all against teams with a record of .500 or above who are playoff caliber teams. The schedule softens significantly the second half of the season.

    I think we could catch fire and end up at 10-6. There is simply too much talent on this team on both sides of the field to call it a season already. But the games with the * could go either way. We need a couple plays/calls to go our way. And yes I am a Vikings optimist!

    Re: The Way I See It.......

    My biggest worry is against the Bears in Dec. These guys don't play well at night.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    I'm betting that the Bears will continue to melt down and never get it together and the Vikings will have gotten more organized by that time.....enough to beat the night jinx.

    The Favre situation will resolve.....he'll be either better or retired, I think. I can't see him sitting on the bench, he's just not made that way. Quail hunting is good in Mississippi about now.

    I can't see any way we could beat the Giants and the Redskins.

    The Eagles are still a question mark, and this gets to be real crystal ball stuff, but at this point the smart money has to say they will probably beat us.

    Hope, however.....does tend to spring eternal.

    The Giants game is at the Dome, otherwise I would put that one as a loss. And I'm not overly impressed with the Redskins, but that game is outdoors on the road so we could potentially lose that one. Only time will tell.

    Re: The Way I See It.......

    Well, so far, things have gone as I predicted.

    I became more optimistic after we got Moss and changed the upcoming Packer game to a win.......

    Now, with Moss gone and the team and coach in a hostile relationship.....I gotta switch it back to a loss.

    Childress does not have a huge impact, but the loss of Moss is huge.
