Darkest days? Nope. Today it got darker with the GM position being handed to Spielman...the master of draft disaster. Let the carnage begin.
My brother knows that I have been looking high and low for Vikings free agent signings. (Although, he was raised right, he's a Falcon's Fan). He calls me up and says...I can't believe it, ESPN is reporting that the Vikings are not going to draft Kahil, ( I am like WTF) he said, it said that your Vikes are going to draft a Center! I am like who? The guy from WISC? He said, no a Basketball center so, your point guard can have someone to pass the ball to. (my brother is offically a A HOLE)... Another day in the life of a Viking Fan!
The Vikings might even improve enough to have a Les Steckel type year.
These are my darkest days as a Vikings fan (ranked by most tragic first):
1.) Rick Spielman named GM
2.) Hiring of Brad Childress
3.) Metrodome Collapse (happened on my birthday, all I wanted was to watch the game)
4.) 1998 NFCC Loss
5.) 2009 NFCC Loss
6.) 2000 NFCC Loss
I am not long time fan but I think this is the worst team we have had since I remember, we got holes in almost any position and many serious ?¿ in the rest(including coaching stuff)
Taking a look at the league I dont see any team as weak as us.Maybe Cleveland or Miami but they still got a far better D than us .
We are pretty f*cked up and Ricky Retardo doesnt seem a genius being able to turn this ship around
The only other time in Vikings history other than 2011, when we won 3 games or less & didn't win a single divisional game was in 1962 when the league played 14 games instead of 16.
That has as much to do with timing and the rest of the division as anything. It just so happens we had some change over in staff and roster that coincided with the other 3 teams in our division being stronger overall than those 3 teams have ever been at the same time.
The Packers were 8-8
and the Lions were 4-11-1.
The Bears were 10-6.
That is 22 wins,25 losses and a tie.
Last year the Pack were 15-1,
That is 32 wins and 15 losses.
It would stand to figure we would have a lower number of division victories considering that.
