Not to be pessimistic, but he does kinda have a point. Last year on here we all thought we were going to be awesome on defense before the season. We had picked up Teddy as a D.C. and Winfield, Henderson was supposed to be great, along with Udeze and D.T. from the draft. Everyone here (including me) thought we were going to be top half of the league. Yes I think we will be better but that is no different than every year during the off-season. It just seem like every year we make moves to better ourselves and every year it seems that it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do squat. I can remember a year or two ago reading an article on ESPN talking about slogans for teams and the Vikings was Ã¢â‚¬Å“Proud to have some Defensive players good enough to play on Saturday.Ã¢â‚¬? Now I think we have made great strides toward respectability, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not sure if we are there yet. It will take a while for the players to jell and get use to each other. I hope IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m DEAD wrong and we are AWESOME on D but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not going to hold my breath.
