Up six places this week. Has a team ever came from so low to the perch of number 8? This season has given the coaching staff and players a chance to show what they have. Percy has been on an MVP pace, Adrian is in beast mode, Ponder is playing smart ball, and the biggest surprise is how well the defense has played.
I think we all have an opinion of where this is going. The key will be the division games at the end of the season They will be for a playoff spot that this group will be in the hunt for. Expectations have been raised and there are many games to be played yet, but the first five weeks have been good to the Viking faithful. I'm believing this run and realize we will suffer a few defeats going forward but it would be awesome to be involved in a playoff spot and division title at the end of the season.
Percy - MVP
Defense - most improved across the board
Sacks - have dropped, but I'll take wins over sacks any day.
O-line - very much improved
Ponder - a pleasant surprise for most of us
AP - What a powerful man. He will run you over.
