No need to worry about the Vikings yet. Last season they lost 3-4 towards the end of the season and then came back strong, one play away from the Super Bowl. This season they hit a slump early but will rebound. The Vikings still play Greenbay and the Bears twice and will be right back in the race. Have faith!

why didn;t the qwner make the right move years ago with Joe smith?
david stern and Taylor ruined the franchise.Now nobody cares about the nba.
let miami,la and boston have their league. it will be interesting to see all the empty seats during games this season all over the nba.

I was at game last night. I was impressed by this collection of NBA players. They ran well, played defense and even scored when they were covered.

I predict 25+ wins this year if no injuries to starting five.

Don't sign up for play off tix yet! However, it sure looks like a much better product on the floor this year compared to previous years. It's only pre-season but hopefully this extends into the regular season. Maybe, just maybe, one of the worst franchises in pro sports history is on the rise. Some of it bk of just "bad luck" but some bk of poor front office decisions.
Wild will join them

The Wild are going in the wrong direction whether the koolaid drinkers want to believe it or not. They will be worse then the Wolves next year 2011/12 as they are heading in opposite direction. Empty seats will start showing up soon at the X as patience will finally wear out. The Wild play borrrrrring hockey. The Wolves will probably be more fun to watch while they are losing.

If you watched them play last night you have to say they are going to be much better. Wes is going to be an All-Star and Love and Beasley are just below that level. Even Pekovic showed some Vlade like moves. I'm finally thinking Kahn is going to be alright, not sold on Rambis.

The Wolves should easily double their win total from last year and may threaten to triple it. Dare we think quadruple? Naa, not a chance. But still, we should see a nice improvement.

What will happen when Flynn comes back?? Lets hope he doesnt start giving the ball away every other trip up the court, like last year. Maybe coming off the bench will be the best thing for him.

The team looks much more promising (you know, like building for the future and stuff) than anything mcfail ever put on the floor (outside garnett).
