What?
No haters up early this morning to tell me how bad this Vikings team is?
They dominated the Colts
Dominated
Now I don't put much stock into preseason games, but I'll bet Indianapolis can't be happy about the way Minnesota went into their house and basically kicked them out. The rest of the league will find out shortly that this defense is built to contain and destroy.
Loadholt looked good
Asher looked good
Farwell is back to his old habits of stuffing any return
Sage is definitely playing at a higher level than TJ ever has

Get used to seeing Harvin on the sidelines. I got to see a lot of him in Florida the last few years and he is a game breaker when on the field, but he always seems to be getting the injury bug or suffering from migraines.

I liked what I saw. I know it is preseason, but the Vikes looked sharp. Chester Taylor looked good as usual. Sage looked a lot better than TJack. I am very excited about the upcoming season.

If you maybe noticed, I said that I don't put much stock into the preseason, and I also was commending the defense. They gave up three(3) points to a very good offensive team and sacked Peyton 3 times.
You can be skeptical all you want, all the way back to 1972

Berrian and peterson left after the 1st series. Pat Williams didn't even play. Niether team had all the starters in and the Vikes still rolled. But you are correct about it being pre season.

Here's how much stock you can put into the preseason. One team won all their preseason games last year, and that team went on to go 0-16.

Ah, but insiders do know, and they know secrets of a magnitude once considered unimaginable. This is all part of a well-constructed and monumental plot to make haters look so bad that they'll be lining up just to jump off the new I-35W bridge and into the Mississippi, where they will all drown unmercifully in their own copious tears, and this world in which we live in will be a far better place for it. So, line up all you haters, this 2009 Viking team is for you. And that's the way it is.

Many haters have been driven to their closets again, if only for a day or two.

What is really disgusting is that T-Jack got stuck in against second stringers, and couldn't make a pass to save his life.

I think it is more of a frustration thing with the vike fans than a hater thing; the fact that we didn't go out and get a quality QB with the surrounding cast we have makes some of us scratch our heads-we have been waiting patiently for a super bowl and we see now as a possible time if we recieve some quality QB play.

That line that C. Taylor was running through? That wasn't the secondary. That QB named Peyton that was laying on the ground? He wasn't a second banana playing behind 2nd or 3rd stringers either. Colts were dominated, at home, without BB or Harvin even on the field. By a QB with a weak arm, but fast off the drop, and accurate. Sorry if some MN haters out there don't like it, but I saw the game, and that's just the way it was.

All this talk about how good the Viqueens play in their first preseason game is garbage. Lets see what happens when they play in the regular season against real teams. As long as Klink coaches this team, Viqueens no doubt will win the Toilet Bowl....again.

IDK, correct me if I'm wrong, but they played well enough last season without Madieu Williams for a good chunk of the season, and EJ too. They had TJax & Gus as QBs and STILL took division. I think that MN showed last season that they could "win regular games" against "real" teams. Now, they've improved. I'll just point out two examples: If GB fans try to say that MN isn't any good, then they'll have to ask themselves why they ended up 6-10 and MN didn't. If Care Bear fans want to try and diss the Vikings, then why didn't YOUR team take the division when they had the chance?- Face it: KLINK beat "your" teams. Ol' Scrotum Head has increased his wins season after season. YOUR coaches haven't. So, either that means MN has a better team, or "your" coaches are the one's that s*u*c*k as-s. Not Klink. I don't even like the f/head, but he's PROVEN himself to be the best coach in the division. It's either that, or your teams totally blow. Which is it?- If MN has the "worse team", "the worse coach", etc. etc., then the fact that they beat all of these other teams means there's ALOT of even $h!ttier teams out there. And they're YOURS.
