I'm not that surprised, the Vikes weren't that far off last year. They lost 9 games by less than 7 and 3 of those being a difference of a field goal.

They added a stud left tackle (while shedding Hutch's aging skills and moving Johnson to a better fit at guard), 2 solid rookies in the secondary, a guy that can stretch the field in Simpson, a stud rookie kicker, a confident QB with a complete off-season and no competition/controversy, and a healthy AP. Not to mention a new D-Coordinator that has this team playing smart and effective schemes.

My one major fear was Musgrave as the O-Coordinator, but he's surprised me. He's actually calling the games to the teams strengths and not trying stupid shit that won't work with the personal they have.

It’s not flashy football, but it’s getting the job done in a style that is not supposed to work in the so-called “passing league”. They’re playing “Black & Blue" football, like we used to see in the NFC north.

I see it continuing. Sure they’re going to pick up a loss here and there, but the schedule is looking less daunting as each week passes as the team keeps winning and the so-called front divisional front runners are struggling. Every game on the schedule now looks winnable; even the game at Houston. I see at least a 10 win season.

The big concern moving forward into the future is locking up Harvin long-term. He’s hands down the best all-around player in the NFL right now.

Word is Harvin has played his last game as a Viking. Several other guys mentioned Vick possibly going to the Vikings next year. I sure hope not.

I'm sure Joe Webb can read a defense better than Vick. I hope he goes to the Jets.

Nice call Corey, you were right and I was wrong...I have no problem with that either. It sure would have been icing on the cake if AD got the record.
Tough road ahead but they have been winning games they were supposed to lose lately. Maybe the Bears fans can root for the Vikings this week..... :lol:
