The TIME IS NOW FOR THE VIKINGS we got to keep the winning wars up and gain more confidence in each other. The viking's have got to have a total team effert from EVERYONE ON THE TEAM to do this. Sure some players are sore and tired a lot but IF WE WANT THAT SUPERBOWL TROPHY THEY DON'T COME FREE we have to have the extra effert to win it all. GO VIKINGS.

Back to back division titles for the first time in 30 years? Multiple Pro Bowlers? Resting injured star players to ensure their long term health for the playoffs?

Well. I guess Purplewoman was right, after all. This PROVES that Childress must be fired, and probably thrown in jail.

Here's why the Vikes have so many fan votes for the Pro Bowl --

While Vikings fans can be expected to vote for their local players, but the same can be said for fans of other teams.

The difference is that the Vikes are getting a TON of televised games outside of MN this year. I think that's a given when you're the defending division champs, but I also think the addition of Favre has a lot to do with it, too.

I live in Vegas now, a neutral market with translplanted football fans from every NFL city in the country. In years past, I could expect to see about 5 or 6 Vikings games televised on the networks here. This year, we've already gotten 9 of 11 games. The Cards and Bears games will be nationally televised, and I suspect the Bengals game is a lock to be shown here. We'll likely finish with 12 or more televised Vikings games in Las Vegas.

If that's happening here, I suspect it's happening in many other markets around the country that don't have a local team. All that exposure is showcasing the Vikings' players to fans in other cities who might not have a home team to favor.

rusty1325-so sorry you're a Chiefs fan. Year in and year out,it just never seems to get any better.Thank you so much for Jared. He's having the time of his life.For a minute there, you were really sounding like a disgruntled packer fan.We'd like to wish you the best of luck next year, and by the way, don't hate Jared.It's not his fault your team traded him.

LOL @ purplenation4ever, nicely said. No way Tahi is getting probowl votes, have fans really seen him play? That's horrible. Winfield is a top 5 NFL cornerback, however there is no way he should make the pro-bowl this season. He hasn't played since week 7.

Here's my list: Favre, Harvin, Rice, Peterson(maybe?), Mckinne, Hutchinson, Sullivan (too early to tell but has been doing a nice job) Jared Allen, Kevin Williams, Chad Greenway, Cedric Griffin, and Heath Farwell. Glad that both Longwell & Kluwe are going as well.

Leave it to a Chiefs fan to lack anything better to do than troll...God, I have to endure their inbredness all year. Skol Vikes. Hey, what was the score of that blowout Vikes win against the Chiefs a couple of years ago? Bet you're a KU fan too. Broncos by 23 this weekend, putz. There's more Bronco flags and shirts in this town than Chiefs, LMAO! Even the Mexican Raiders fans outnumber you here....

I like everything on your list except for your uncertainty on Peterson. He ABSOLUTELY deserves to be in the Pro Bowl.

He's getting the same yards per carry as last year when he won the rushing title, but will settle for fewer yards because he's giving up carries to the passing game. He's also already passed last years touchdown total. Good year for Peterson across the board. Will hit 1,500 yards at his current pace. BEST in the NFC!

As for Tahi, I think he's just getting votes because he's one of the few fullbacks who actually get to do anything anymore. Most are invisible blockers. He's actually gotten a few carries and receptions, so he might win by default. I still have to admit, he's not exactly a household name...

Thanks for the good laugh! The Vikings the 2nd best in the NFC? Get a clue! All the experts still say that even though the Saints whipped the Patriots butts, the Vikings are still the better team. Offense, defense, and special teams! Period!

The vikings need all the inspiration they can get sure carl eller and hopefully fran tarkenton and other ex vikings will be ther sure we'd had our differences in the past with some but to get a superbowl win is what we all want. Fran forget the past put on that old number 10 shirt and roam the side lines beleive it or not you'll enjoy it go vikings.
