Daily Norseman FanPulse: Confidence increases slightly, still not great

Fans still aren’t terribly happy with the team

NFL: Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

As those of you that have signed up for the program know, we put out our first FanPulse poll of the offseason earlier this week, and it doesn’t appear as though fans of the Minnesota Vikings have a great deal of confidence in the team as we make our way through the offseason.

Well, I guess that’s not entirely accurate. The regular season ended with just 22% of Vikings fans in our poll stating that they’re confident in the direction the team is going in. That number has skyrocketed. . .if you can call it that. . .to 42% of fans expressing confidence in the team’s direction. That’s a significant increase, but given that this team spent time last season with a fan confidence level that was north of 90%, that’s still awfully low. I’m assuming that we’ll get a similar poll after the 2019 NFL Draft, and hopefully that will get some folks excited again.

One of the other questions that was asked in this week’s poll was whether or not you think the Vikings have gotten better or worse this offseason. Not surprisingly. . .at least when you balance the gains and losses from free agency. . .the majority of fans think that the Vikings have gotten worse over the course of the offseason. Of the fans that were polled, 42% of the fans think that the purple have gotten better this offseason, and honestly I’m surprised that the number is that high given the level of gloom and doom that we usually see. Again, the numbers after the NFL Draft will, hopefully, be more positive.
