On an unrelated note... All the signs are there: the abnormal amount of posts for this time of year; the playful, dare I say, positive lilt of the content; the "I don't want to jinx it" tacit approval of the new coaching hires.... do we need to stage an intervention ... because it seems like hope might be rearing it's slightly out of focus head. What will happen if the coaching staff starts seeing what we did during their player evaluations and begins making decisive, intelligent, feelings be damned changes to the roster.. what then? Will we all fall down the rabbit hole? What if they become a dominant franchise ... I know I'm scared too - it's OKAY

what a beautiful disaster - someone should tell our defense that games are 60 minutes long - not 55. A real d - coordinator would be all over that and, due to the pathetic state of the NFC north, we would actually be competing for the division title

You're tongue is a paintbrush on the internet canvas today. Thank you for the gift of levity while we deal with the horror of what will surely become the fated season that trumps the grand Les Steckel era. It truly is a beautiful disaster that is impossible to look away from - just keep the camera rolling, this is a goldmine.

We may have to change uniforms, team colors, fight song, mascot, logo and team name to put this season behind us - oh and spray the lid and bowl down with cooking oil and flush everything - followed by a lonnng hot shower and head to toe anti-bacterial gel and a month in the Bahamas on a strict Rum-only diet ... you know, a complete RE-BOOT

Bye week where have you been all my life! I just want off this merry-go-round before I hurl all the purple kool-aid the Vikings media is trying to force-feed me. Put a positive spin on what? "We're saving Ponder from himself - a rib might pierce his great big self-sacrificing heart" (give me a break - probably got his nipple twisted too hard by Samantha in a pillow fight take-down)

Lowered expectations - I live by that mantra, as do most Minnesotans I know. Not sure if that is a result of the Vikings or a culture that made the Vikings what they are - anyway, it's the safe and sane way to survive the mental, physical and emotional toll of 40+ years as a fan. I'll be watching the game with a good friend who happens to be a Bears fan ( there is NO such thing as any kind of friend that roots for the Pukers) and have already told him I'm expecting defeat to the tune of 44 -17 or so. While I'm certain he'll make an effort to be gracious and consoling throughout - NOT, at least I've preemptively taken some of the fun out of the game for him ( a favorite tactic of long time fans like myself). That being said, I will still relish any little victories in the match-ups and hope for some discernible improvement in overall team play - oh, and a FEW drinks as well, ENJOY!

I think Suh and Fairley should both be required to switch teams as well so Detroit can get a dose of their own medicine, but that's just me being vindictive and greedy

I think Ponder should put Google eyes on the front of his helmet so the DB's can't tell which receiver he's staring down at that particular moment

Observations: Greenway doesn't seem to know what to do with Bush. Pondlander can't roll left (but wasn't on the field long enough to break a sweat, so at least he didn't mess his hair up) and instead of leading his receivers with the ball, would rather just follow them with it after staring them down the whole way. Sanford and son's tackling looked like hot garbage. If Detroit hadn't repeatedly tried to gift wrap the game and give it back to the Vikes the score should have been closer to 48 - 24. Next week should be a blast; like Detroit without all the stupid mistakes... score will be roughly 44 -13.

Unleash the noobs! Pretty sure we're getting a big dose of all three first rounders this week - should be interesting. It would be great if we had a quarterback - but, alas, we do not ( I'd still like to smack the "little general" upside the head for so quickly dismissing Drew Brees). The scotch sounds great. I'm enjoying a glass of The Balvenie 14yr. Caribbean Cask (subtle hints of rum dance across the palate with a spicy, vanilla finish) as I type this - A little pricey, but I've been a good boy so... Anyway, here's hoping our guards can handle that pair of D tackles the motor city kitties are sporting and give A.D. some glorious running lanes so he can truck the secondary. Of course, if the ball should happen to grow wings and take to flight whilst finding Jennings or Rudolph I wouldn't complain.

Still think he should have switched first names with Cassel and took her last name. Then we could be introducing Matt Steele, quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings - at least more intimidating till they saw him play.

Perhaps a grass- roots effort by the intelligent Vikings fans begging him to overlook the transgressions of the front office would compel him to reconsider and let go of the resentment resulting from being treated like yesterday's newspaper...

Interesting scotch choice - have had Glenmorangie 12yr in sherry cask and loved it. Tried the port cask aged as well - a little too sweet for me; still haven't had a rum cask yet ... perhaps next review? I agree for the most part on the awkward goodbyes with the exception that I get the feeling that Joe Webb has achieved some kind of "teachers pet" status and think they'll find an excuse to cut someone better in favor of his "upside". You neglected to mention the "To be taken out and shot immediately" category which should definitely include Josh Robinson and all the game film of our esteemed offensive line (got a feeling they just didn't care.. preseason)....Oh and let's not forget JOE LOONEY! Your'e assessment of the upcoming season just feels spot on - plenty of opportunities to commiserate again this year methinks. If somehow we could beat Green Bay twice and get AD 2000yds it would be worth it! ( I can dream, right?) Any thoughts on who to re- sign from d-line for next season?

Ponder IS #4 - in a list of top backup QB's. I'd be fine with him in that role ( without the pressure of being the starter he might actually sine in spot duty such as the victory formation at the end of games) and Matt Cassel makes a great #3. I just want to see someone who exudes confidence and leadership as a starter. Someone who isn't content to take a back seat to Adrian and ride his coattails. No delicate ego, without the self-doubt, willing to bark a little / bite if necessary.... you know.... A STARTER.
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Reputable News Source Ranks Ponder 4th Best NFL QB
Jerome Felton suspended first three games for substance abuse (can we get out of that contract)? Christian Ballard where are you? Still no news on severity of Kevin Williams obvious knee injury (our depth at 3-tech suddenly very thin) . Matt Kalil must be letting his avatar play games for him. Robinson! (pleeease come back Antoine). Two nice-guy back up QB's and no starter.... I can't wait till we start cutting people so we can get a little clarity and maybe some outside help.
