This has been a long season and its only 6 games long for us Vikings fans. We have played New Orleans, Miami, Jets, Lions, Cowboys and Green Bay. Each and every game has been close and winnable. Most of that has been due to an excellent defense that works it tails off. The offensive passing attack has been weak this year.
Many people have many theories as to why the Vikings have not had the "magic" this year like last year. Some claim it is Farve's age or ailments. Some claim it is the injuries to our secondary or to Sidney Rice. But all teams have injuries. Some teams move on from them. Some don't. Most knowledgeable Viking fans will tell you that the Vikes are close to being a very good football team. I think that is very true. Whatever that missing piece is we hope that it is found this week. I suspect that this game this week will be more of the same. A gut wrenching close football game between two very good teams. It would be nice to come out on the winning end of one of these.
Anyway , as always I will be around to try and answer any questions you might have. I'm sure the DN editors will answer some questions later in the week also. But since your kind enough to let me lurk at your site all year I just wanted to offer my opinions if you wanted to hear them.
May the best team win.
