It won't win any games, but the team's commitment to offseason workouts at Winter Park sends a good message.

2-14 will help fans forget 3-13 pretty quickly.

These clowns say the SAME thing EVERY year and for the past two seasons (and counting) the vikings have had their lunch handed to them by the Bears, Packers and Lions. The vikings used to be able to count on two automatic wins every season from the Lions and a split at worst with the Bears and Packers but those days are long gone. The vikings are now the laughingstockof the NFC North and they will experience what the Lions did for nearly a decade and that is lose, lose, lose while trying to re-build with a clueless head coach like Frazier and an even worse general manager in Spielman. Suck it up purple homers and get used to the "Decade of re-building" era.

this year will be worse than last year: 1-15 or 0-16!

As the media is so quick to point out the Wonderlic scores of draftees, how about sharing the Wonderlic scores of the coaching staff? Word from Chicago is that neither Frazier nor Singletary were capable of stringing together 4 sentences around a single thought without lacing them with expletives. Now that the Vikes have helped the NFL (Rooney Rule), and the NFL has reciprocated with help for the Vikings (new stadium), it's time to move beyond this coaching staff and get some talent in here who know what they're doing. I'm a big fan of finding coaches who didn't necessarily play the game, or at least did so while graduating with a GPA above 3.0 from a major university. The NFL is a game in which merit is the only way forward, so please stop saddling this team with coaches who haven't earned their way in the NFL. This is Leslie's first NFL gig, and his gig is almost up. I give the team a 1-3 start, and gone.

Are you people even fans? You make me sick, but that's what trolls want right...

Doesn't the Packers, Bears, and Lions, or whoever you people root for, have their own websites? If your not a fan of the Vikings, then why do you blog on a Viking website? Maybe you are only fans when the Team is playing well. Ah the fair weather fans. Go watch baseball! GO VIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
