Minnesota fans, whether you live there or not, know the Vikings' history all to well. We've been to four SB's and haven't even one under our belts. In recent years we've been to two NFC championship games and lost both. One, the dreaded 98 NFC championship game and the slaughter the Giants gave us in 2000.
I know how the rest of you feel. It's quite depressing but look at us this year. 9-5 and the third best team in the NFC. In other words, I like our chances this year. Whether Gus or Jackson I feel that both men have proved to be successful no matter what some may say. Just look at the record. T-Jack has come into his own the last two games and has been in control both outings, thus turning opinions around about him.
I myself have been hard on Jackson for his first two starts of the season, but then I think, this is now and those two games seem old history. The fact of the matter is this. Minnesota fans are used to being disappointed and this makes our heads strong about what should be done for next season. Don't fear fellow fans, I think we may have something going for us this year. We've got two tough games ahead and we should take them one at a time. We should'nt be worried who our QB will be next year or who will Coach the team next year.
Brad Childress has staind some of us and may not earn our respect but you've gotta see the big picture. The man is turning the team around. Yes, he's made mistakes but let's not jump the gun. Some of us are already talking of 2009 but why?
We've got two winning QB's on the team. We've got the best running back this year and C. Taylor is a force to reckon with. Our run defense is feared and our secondary is actually proving themselves. We have a tough TE and some good receivers. Why question it anymore? It is what it is.
The moral of this is that we need to praise our team at this time of the season. Let's sit back and enjoy the ride. We will prevail and we will stand the test of time. We are the Vikings we hope for nothing but wish for everything. I think this year our wish will come true and you see us on top. Stay possitive and stay true to the purple!
