The viking's playoff hopes ended today in Seattle and that cannot be disputed. Getting beat by three rookie QBs in a single season has to be a NFL record. This club will be lucky to win two more more games this season with the Bears, Packers (twice each) and Texans on the horizon down the stretch. Oh well, time to hear the familar jingle from Winter Park and that is "Wait until next year" and oh, by the way, there will be another season ticket price increase in 2013 as well!!!

Frasier and staff - have to be fired- this is again a wasted year -cannot waste years as AP isn't getting any younger. Same mistakes as last year - never a correction - time for a change or we will be rebuilding for the next 4 years.

Good thing is the Vikings have pretty much exceeded everyone's expectations for the season in wins. I don't think anyone expected the Vikings to win 5 games going into the season. Giving CP7 a good look is exactly what the Vikings should be doing at this time. I just don't think the Vikings need to spend the entire season to evaluate this QB. Letting Rosenfells walk for nothing was a huge mistake by the Vikings. I strongly believe the Vikings could have made a serious playoff run with a Veteran QB of Rosenfells talents at the helm. Having the talent on the offensive side of the ball like the Vikings have, there is absilutely no excuse for the Vikings to loose to a team like Seattle while racking up 200 plus yards on the ground. You would think the Vikings would have easily controlled the game not to mention time of possesion with those type of stats. I think this is the worst performance I have ever seen by a Viking QB over a two week period. Passing for under 100 yards by a professional QB drafted in the first round is totally unacceptable. Frazier is sticking his neck on the chopping block by continously sticking with this guy. There was no true open competition for the QB job going into training camp since the job was litterally CP7's to begin with. Joe Webb is probably the 3rd most talented athlete the Vikings have on the entire roster. Given the ton of talent that Webb has you would think the coaching staff would find a way to get him on the field. Instead this team along with the commentators constantly make negative comments about Joe Cool stating that he isn't the long term answer for the Vikes. If I were the Head Coach of this team I would either release Webb and got a true #2 to back up CP7 or at least give Webb A chance to spark the Offense. You can see it in the teams body language that they are getting tired of CP7 and that's coming from both sides of the ball. Petersen and Harvin are clearly giving their all on the field and deserve to be in a better situation than they are currently in. The defense is clearly spending way too much time on the field given their short comings. Perhaps the organization is simply biding time until Ziggy world is completed a few years down the road. Until then I guess it will suck being a Viking fan.

Harvin will more than likely walk after his rookie contract is up. I can't say I blame him and that's too bad to say the least. Dude is a stud that would be a tremendous asset to any team that has a QB worth a grain of salt.
