Because the Vikings are losing, the writers are running out of good story lines! But good answer by Percy Harvin. Go Vikes!

I wondered what would happen after they let Chilly go last year. Not really his fault they let Chester leave, Rice didn't get the hip fixed before the season. Maybe he could have kicked some more butt with that offensive line. Lots of dropped passes.. Gee.. Almost sounds a bit like this year.. Not sure what Leslie can do with this team.. Heard the comment that Rogers is having a great year in part because he's had the same receivers for the last four years.. Let's hope 2012 is a better year.. It may be our last year with the team here in Minnesota..

2-14 has a nice ring to it. High draft choice, and it will force Wilf to finally put together a front office with a real GM. Assuming the franchise stays in MN, of course. PURPLE PRIDE!

Its a lead pipe since that unless someone finds a way for a new stadium, this will be the last year us Vikings fans will have to endure , cuz it will be LA????

2-14 gets a better draft choices, so 2-14 is fine with me, not sure about frazier, but this teams org structure is a train wreck

Frazier isn't head coach material. They need to get a coach that has actual head coaching experience They need to get rid of Speilman too and get a real GM. Until then don't expect much better.

As long as Wilf can keep the seats filled he's gonna make money... The less he spends on talent the more money he can pocket... Win, Lose or Draw it's just a business...

A lot of statistics in this article, but missing the most important one- 37. As in 37 years, this January, since the Vikings have been to the big dance. We are now easily into the second generation of Minnesotans that have never seen the Vikings in a Superbowl. What a pathetic franchise- anybody else want to VOLUNTEER to pack their stuff up and help them move???

They already have a dubious history. They have no trophies!! Even the Saints and Buccaneers have a George Halas and Vince Lombardi Trophy. Even in the Les Steckel year of 1984 the vikings had their 3rd win by Veterans Day. Wilf ought to move to a big city and bigger market like Mexico City or Guadalajara which already have larger stadiums. Why should the public pay for a same size metrodome II? They could be the team of all Mexico right now.
