I’m sure you remember Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, who had to pass the U.S. Senate resolution honoring the Green Bay Packers, and then had the gall to say the [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink] will win the Super Bowl in 2012.
I mean, if there was ever a Senator with her head up her ass…
Well, apparently such delusions extend to Minnesota Vikings players, as well.
Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe says the Vikings time is now!
“I feel like the window is still open. It’s definitely getting smaller to me, before the rebuilding process [starts],” Shiancoe said. “We have so many veterans and elite players right now on our team. A roster full of great players. … Offensively, we have all the skill positions [filled]. It’s an offensive coordinator’s dream. Those are weapons that are definite mismatches if put in the right position.”
“It’s just rare to have a team full of the guys that we have,” he said. “A lot of veterans who are seasoned and ready. We’re built for the now.”
Let’s break this down.
You have all the skill positions filled?
At quarterback, which I believe is a skill position, there’s Joe Webb and…
Yeah, nothing. [intlink id=”41″ type=”category”]Brett Favre[/intlink] is retired. [intlink id=”34″ type=”category”]Tarvaris Jackson[/intlink] is a free agent and not expected to be back. Webb started two games during his rookie season.
Then there’s receiver, where there’s Percy Harvin and…
Ooooh, nothing. Sidney Rice is a free agent and after that there a bunch of slobs who couldn’t gain more than 500 yards last season with Favre throwing them the ball.
You’re set at exactly one skill position — running back, where Adrian Peterson is still one of the league’s best and Toby Gerhart is a capable backup.
I won’t even go into the leaky offensive line, the aging front four or the secondary that couldn’t cover anyone, last season.
But hey, let’s all shave our IQs in half and pretend we’re from Minnesota for a second.
This is our year!
Our time is now!
Question: What do both the Minnesota Vikings and possums have in common?
Answer: Both play dead at home and get killed on the road!
Best case scenario for Minnesota is a 3rd place finish in the North in 2011… and that is only if the Lions don’t improve!
I think the Lions will be much improved and will actually give us a run in the Central. It’s the Vikings and Bears who will be sucking dick in the cellar.
I predict the Vikings to be last in the division next year. Bears 3rd and lions second. I think the lions are capable of getting a wild card and making the playoffs. Bears are trash and everyone knows it so I dont expect much from them next year.
Haha here’s to ya Matt fox.
Central? How bout the nfc north! Please tell me you’re not one of those bandwagonners who knows nothing about the pack.
Yea there is no central. lol The Lions will win maybe 5 or 6. I really doubt the Lions will make the playoffs.
Lions are still terrible on the back end and have nothing reliable at QB. Still, yes, they showed they are good enough to beat out the Vikings.
What I am hoping for is that the Vikings still believe this “time is now” BS and go after another washed up QB like McNabb instead of drafting one in the 1st round.
There isn’t a QB this year in the draft that will get them close to the SB
I think the Vikings knew they were in trouble before the season started when they had to resort to flying several players down south, to literally beg Favre to play for them.
To me that spoke a lot about how desparate they were. Yet they still sucked. In fact Favre probably made them worse.
I’m still not convinced Favre is retired though, its always lie after lie out of his mouth.
Next year, if it happens.
I am a Vikes fan and have nothing to say to you clowns….effing eh.
At least we have the Tw….nah, the Wol…nah, GO WILD!!!
The entire Senate must have said “dumb cunt” to themselves after hearing her comments about the Vikings winning it all.
