    Vikings Season Probably Done

    A few weeks ago, I made fun of many that said the Vikes were done. Well, they are only 1 game behind the Bears and Pack, which wouldn't qualify them for being done.

    UNTIL, I came across this:
    Report: Kevin, Pat Williams could face doping suspensions

    Since the Vikes have one of the best D-Lines in NFL, the loss of both Williams' would really hurt the team.

    This is one of the most frustrating seasons of football ever for me if you factor in ISU.

    I think they'll probably appeal and the suspensions might be reduced, but still, going without the Williams' for even 1 game is something they can't afford.

    Newsflash. Even a good QB would suck with the receivers the Vikings have. Vikings fans sounds just like the Bears' fans the past few seasons...

    Vikings need a game against the Chiefs to bolster their confidence.

    Maybe the Vikings should leave the NFL and join AFL?

    Or maybe just threaten to leave...

    Oh, he's onto something. However, I think they'd do much better in NFL Europe.

    Nevermind.

    The XFL would be a great fit.

    Errrr...

    Are you kidding if the Vikings went to the XFL they wouldn't get anyone... they would lose AP and would be starting "He Hate Me".

    Re: Vikings Season Probably Done

    Maybe this is a plot to go to the Superbowl next year:

    -They keep everyone they need for next year
    -The sign or trade for a decent QB
    -The fire and hire a good coach
    -They draft a play-making receiver in the first round (since they'll finish 4 games worse than before)

    This coming from a guy whos team employed Todd Pinkston for 6 seasons.

    I don't have as much problem with the WRs as I do with the playcalling and lack of planning when it came to the QB position. Ferrotte is a wave player at best at this point in his career and should not be counted on for more then a few games. Since Chilli did not see a need to get a viable backup here we are. Poor offense, hurting defense (about to be hurting more) and 1 game below .500. With any luck this will lead to Childress getting the boot and we can get a new coach who can coach to a teams strengths.

    Sorry; There is so much salt on the wounds right now, I thought that a little more wouldn't hurt as badly.
