    Are we too pumped up about the Vikings?

    I don't know, how pumped are we?

    I enter the season like most seasons, with hope. Too many things factor into having a great season that can change on a daily basis, so why go all nuts over it and just let things play out. I do see us having a better team this year than last, but not sure what that means.

    I am... but that's what I do every year after the draft.

    Couldn't this be said about every team's fans (sans Browns)?

    If we had a decent QB, I would say yes. But we rarely have a decent QB. At least as long as I have been watching. I don't really count Favre. He showed his true colors with that great int in the Saints playoff game. That was his last pass as a Viking right?

    No

    He threw 358 more passes in the 13 games he started for us the following year.

    How long have you been watching & been a Vikings fan?

    Lol

    I am excited but mostly because Favres name was brought up. I don't think we are too pumped but intrigued is a good word for me.

    How pumped are we? The NFL is a quarterback league, and our quarterback was, arguably, the worst in the NFL last season. Not average. Not a great arm QB making young mistakes. Not even as good as the 32nd best quarterback at throwing the 15+ yard pass in a 32 team league.

    Until Ponder shows that he can physically hit moving targets in stride on the numbers or on the hands on deep throws consistently, I will not be pumped about the Vikings doing much at all.

    I meant to say that was the Vikings last pass of that game. An INT. Sorry to have offened.
