With no game today, it seems like a good time to get caught up on our SB Nation Reacts for the Minnesota Vikings and. . .well, it’s happening.
I’m not entirely sure what “it” is yet, but there’s certainly something happening from the look of our graph.
Yes, we’ve achieved pretty much a full “W” with our graph, as confidence is pretty high now after a couple of Vikings victories. We are up to a full 71% of fans responding to our survey with the belief that the Vikings are moving in the correct direction. That’s by far the highest we’ve seen since before the season started and a whole lot higher than it was a couple of weeks ago when confidence was all the way down in the single digits.
Here’s the full rundown of how the confidence roller coaster has gone this season.
- End of 2019: 84% of Vikings fans express confidence in the direction of the team
- Post-free agency: 49%
- Post-draft: 88%
- Week 1: 88%
- Week 2: 43%
- Week 3: 9%
- Week 4: 18%
- Week 5: 44%
- Week 6: 46%
- Week 7: 15%
- Week 8: 8%
- Week 9: 34%
- Week 10: 71%
Given that we are, in fact, Vikings fans, you can determine whether or not such a marked increase in confidence is a good thing or not.
If the Vikings can walk into Soldier Field tomorrow night and pull off a third straight victory over an NFC North opponent, we’ll likely see this number increase even more than it has over the past few weeks. I certainly hope that’s what happens.
