WELCOME TO LA VIKINGS they will give you a new stadium and 3 years of sell outs then when you start to suck (like this year) were going to jump off the bandwagon. But you guys are used to that you play in minnesota currently.

Word on the street is that Parcells is looking for a new adventure. How about with the Vikes either as a GM, which we need or as a coach with Childress' powers? the man has a pretty darn good track record of putting together winners. Only case he didn't bring home the big bacon was in Dallas where he had to fight the owner all the way. Might be about the only thing that will get me to renew my tickets of 13 years.

I would be relieved to see Parcells, Cohwer, whomever...I just can't see someone of that caliber coming to our market. Hope I am wrong. I do look forward to Klink getting run out of town in shame. Idiot.

If we were to see Bill Parcells taking the GM role with this organization means that Ziggy is serious about turning this thing around. Bill is not a people person but he is very good at what he does. My only concern is the fans in that so many of them think that everyone has to like everyone else, you know the MN nice thing. I would be in total support of Bill Parcells coming in but he is great defense and run the football and he sure as hell will NOT put up the the likes of some of the players we have brought in. I'm glad Bret's done because Bill would say see ya. Just saying

What is the definition of bandwagon jumping? Is not wearing your Viking jersey the Friday before a game considered bandwagon jumping?

In my opinion bandwagon jumping occurs when a percentage of the fans not only don't watch the Vikings but don't care if they win or lose. Basically don't show any emotion towards the team when they are losing but show a lot of emotion when they are winning.

I don't think many Viking fans have jumped ship, I think we all have a lot of emotion for our team it's just that this year that emotion is very negative.

Real fan: Says "W T F is the problem!!!"

how many times in the last few games, did the Vikes have the other team 3rd and long (3rd and 12 or 13...3rd and 19...3rd and 25 ) and what happens...let's show blitz ( like we've been doing all season, but drop everybody back except for the front four); as you can tell by the sacks the Vikes have...this is a brilliant move...i don't know about other fans, but, i look forward to the day when Les is the HC and we can have a four man "O" line to protect the QB ( well that is if we have one)now how can you argue with that...Klink will still be here even if he is fired...GO VIKES!!!

Our team does look like it's breaking down on third down - the most important down to stop the opponent. They've looked like they're sleeping. Wake up, Vikings; 3rd down is your most crucial effort. Skol Vikings.

I think we're looking at a loss on sunday guys. I wish i was wrong but the pack has something to play for and the vikes , not so much. The luster of Bret's streak has gotten old and with all the turmoil going on, it just doesn't set up well for our guys, in my opinion. I just want to get this season over and look forward to new management (head coach). It's a damn shame when every other team in the NFL is improving and we have a soap opra going on. The lowly Bills are making the effort, the Lions, the Raiders, c'mon man. Just saying

Where is Robbie when I need him? Packer fan her...remember? You asked why I didn't let out just where I live in WI. I'll tell you why. You folk sent 3 players(s) to bring Brent back. Thank you for that!!!You might load up a C130 or run a gamut of chartered other transportation to where this Marine served his country. Are the ViQueens serving thier part of the country to your liking? TY so much again for bringing Brent back again.
Our gain is your loss. Or losses. Have a good day.

He wasn't one of the best. If he were, the team wouldn't have had a too many men on the field penalty late in the NFC Championship game. That team won despite the coach.

How could Allen have a concussion?
You'd need contact with a member of the opposing team.

Once again I have had with the Queens, they have that 50 year patch on their
jerseys and when you look at the record - in fifty years they have never won the
big despite being there 4 times.
Never done anything and they never will.
They are put together with the same idea the Twins have, Just be good enough so we can make a lot of money. That is all that needs to be done.
The Vikes, the Twins, football Gophers and the Wild - they all blow chunks.
John, let me finally explain to you and everyone who talks about the Vikings never winning the superbowl.I don't know about the rest of the Vikings fans out there but when I am at my last day on this earth and the Vikings still have not won a superbowl, my life will still be complete. I am fifty years old and have been a Viking fan for 40 years. I will continue to watch them when they win or they loose because you know what, I just simply like to whatch them play. Is that ok. I watch the Vikings for the enjoyment. I can't control if they ever win a super bowl but I can control the fun I have in watching them play. As with most Viking fans we have lives outside the Vikings. In closing, please stop talking about how many super bowls they have not won, it is not the end all reason that we like to watch them play. Thanks for reading this.

That's a very good post. I am a Vike fan through and through- some comments made by myself and others might be misunderstood as bandwagon jumping. Thanks for a good, clarifying post.

how about using Joe Webb in some kind of Wildcat formation..or ANYTHING.What do they have to lose?..Nothing plus it will give the kid a little experience anyway...Hey Klink, Hey Bevell, show some seeds, show some imagination, DO something for chrissakes....this offense is so predictable, so boring, so non existant.how many 4th downs this year has this team tried handing the ball to AP straight ahead into the line, boy, that sure keeps a defense off balance huh?..hum.....yep, Klink sure has put his mark on this team hasn't he? My biggest concern now is not getting Klink fired because that will happen soon enough but please, do NOT put Frazier in charge, he can't run a defense or at least make any adjustments so why put him in charge of an entire team?....time for a big name to take this team and fix it...THE RIGHT WAY!!!!!
To be honest, I hope the Packers just kick the Queens a55 this week so we can put Baldy out to pasture.and start the road back to respectability.....
this is and always been a team that refuses to make changes.the vikes haven't even tried to give Webb or Tj a chance. Local money didnt even want to buy the vikes. thet deserve the owners and coach they have.

These guys have packed it in. They may have packed it in at training came with the Favre drama.

And I think it's because they are without a leader they can respect. And they would be 1) the coach and 2) the guy under center.
