Ok, this season has pretty much sucked since the get-go.
The McNabb experiment didn't work out, Chris Cook may have wrecked a very promising career, we've more than our fair share of injuries, we've blown big leads and we've also had a few humiliating blowouts.
'way to cheer us up Scotty' i hear you say - but stay with me.....
sure this season is one we will all look to forget in a hurry, but it has had it's highlights as well:
- The Ponder era has begun, and early signs are positive.
- Allen has shown that he is still the action man we all know and love.
- Peterson is still the man, and will continue to be the man for the Vikings for the rest of his career.
- Sullivan is having a breakout year. (who would of thunk it?)
- Harvin is showing what he can do when he gets some service. (see Ponder)
- Rudolph could be the steal of the 2nd round. The dude is just a walking highlight reel!
- And finally, although we will all want to forget this sucky season - it will provide us a chance to draft one of the top college players in April, not to mention top picks in the rest of the rounds allow us the opportunity to plug some of our gaps.
I would love to see the Vikings tie down Sullivan and Harvin to new contracts and continue to build around a very talented core of Peterson, Harvin, Allen, Greenway, Williams, Ponder, Rudolph, Sullivan & E. Griffen.
The future is bright, so take heart my brothers and sisters. Now lets hope the State can pull their fingers out and get us a stadium!
