    Re: Pro Football Talk don't tink too much of us.....

    All the so called experts can go to he!!. We may have some growing pains, but when we get comfortable with the new coaches systems we will be pretty darn good. I say. And I'm no expert. But not 1 game has been played yet, so lets get past all the b.s. preseason guessing and let our on the field play do the talkin'. I'd rather be a dark horse and come outa nowhere anyhow. They can even call us a "Cinderella Team" as long as we are getting the wins. Skol Vikes.

    Their opinions mean squat to me.. We will have the last laugh.. That is when you will see these assclowns saying " We knew with this new system that the Vikings had a real good chance of being good." They will jump on the bandwagon just like everyone else..

    We all know who the faithful are.. Us fans right here on PP.O...

    At least Vikings Scout is optimistic!

    The Vikings hope that Matt Birk returns to Pro Bowl form in 2006. But,
    as it stands now -- a month before training camp is scheduled to open --
    the 22 Vikings starters could include as many as 15 players that weren't
    opening day starters just one year ago.

    For most NFL teams, the offseason is spent pondering where things went
    wrong. For teams like the Texans, Saints, 49ers and Packers, it’s easy
    to ponder – they stunk. But the Vikings were 9-7 and a late rally short
    of making the playoffs. They shouldn’t be viewed as a team as a team in
    flux? Or should they?

    When the 2006 season opens with a Monday night game at Washington, the
    Vikings could have as many as 15 new starters on the field.

    On offense, the Vikes are prepared to open with as many as nine
    different starters from 2005 – Brad Johnson at QB, Chester Taylor and
    Tony Richardson behind him, Koren Robinson and Troy Williamson flanked
    outside and Steve Hutchinson, Matt Birk, Artis Hicks and Mike Rosenthal
    in front of him. At tight end, we have to call a draw, since for the
    Week 1 game vs. the Buccaneers a year ago, both Jim Kleinsasser and
    Jermaine Wiggins lined up on the first play and earned starting nods for
    the game.

    Defensively, the Vikings potentially have their own share of new
    starters with five – DE Erasmus James, linebackers Ben Leber, E.J.
    Henderson and Chad Greenway and safety Tank Williams.

    With only 22 starters, most teams that have as many as 15 different
    players starting on opening day that did the previous year are teams
    that drafted high in the current year’s draft and likely will the
    following year. The Vikings are working on a winning record with a
    realistic expectation of double-digit wins this year.

    Success in the NFL is often predicated on chemistry. The Vikings, it
    would seem, have created chemistry in a petrie dish. They have collected
    all of the needed ingredients, but will they blend into something
    incredible or something inedible. Only time will tell, but few if any
    teams in the NFL will line up on the first down of their respective NFL
    seasons with more different players in the starting lineup on opening
    week of the 2006 season than the Vikings. Good or bad? You decide.

    Re: Pro Football Talk don't tink too much of us.....

    Does anyone really care what these people think? They are wrong everyt year. In this day and age with free agency the way it is it's very difficult to predict how teams will do. I can see the point of will the team gell together quickly. We know we looked good on paper last year but we saw how that worked out. This year, there's new systems on both sides of the ball. The good news is there's a lot of young talent and if they play decently this year and the team stays in tact next year they may dominate.

    Personally I don't see them as dominating this year. I think they will be competitive and they are defintaly a playoff calibur team. If they make the playoffs anything can happen. The main thing now a day is playing together as a system. Like the Pats did in the early 2000s. Like the Cowboys did in the 90s. Like the niners / Bills did in the 80s and the Steelers / Vikings did in the 70s.

    All in all these guys at this point can only guess what's going to happen. they make their prediction based on gut feelings. Really, their predictions mean squat at this time of year.

    Casn anyone tell me where the Bears were predicted to finish last year? How about the Giants? Were the Eagles chosen for last place by anybody?Don't bother letting what the so called experts say bother anybody. Oh, one last one. where were the Detroit tigers supposed to be this year.
