well preseason is behind us and we are just a few days away from the start of the season. It seems that most of the "Pro" writers have us down between 23-25 out of 32 teams. Last year we went 6-10 and we were bad in my opinion, but even as bad as we played last year, we were with in a score of winning 5 more games. I liked what I have seen in preseason but it is preseason so you can not put to much weight on anything right you see before the first game.
As I look at the season (before we know how this team is going to preform) I see a lot of winnable games. The toughest games from my view point look to be Chicago, GB, Atlanta, Saints and maybe the Chargers depending on if they have a slow start again this year. That as a Vikings fan means they will probably have good start this year and we will have our hands full. I see all the other games as winnable but gritty, we can not fall asleep in any of these games, in Kanas City for instance.
So on the season I believe we can go a split in the division 3-3 and will lose another 3 games. Not having KWill in the first two games scares me, but I figure we will lose at least one we should win and will surprise at least on team.
I am pretty sure 10-6 will not win the division so we may need help to get in the playoffs as this is not a for sure thing as a wild card either.
