The vikes also played and beat 4 last place teams last year. this year they have only defeated last place teams.The Vikings are old and their talent is thin. They got EVERY break last year, so it's just evening out.
Injuries? Talk to the Pack about injuries.
Face it, the Vikes are not very good.

You forgot one other disturbing trend...Greens assistants went on to have more success then he did...Dungy and Billick went on to have SB winning careers, and Dungy gives the credit to Chuck Noll (rightfully so)...Tomlin has had far more success in his short time since escaping Chilly (and his tree is tied to Dungy, hence Noll) and we can oly wonder who is next.

Sadly, it did resemble a Packer JV team...our Vikes have no excuse as Moss was there instead of Rice....the refs cost the Vikes that game pretty clearly but the Vikes still had a chance at the end...they should have won by two scores if they would have sensed the screen pass a little better...that was just plain laziness on defense.

Somewhat over rated, definately under acheivers, certainly a head coach who is deeply disliked by his players. is this a big surprise? I never liked Klink, I hated that he was brought on as HC, fans have hated him...players have no respect for his ineptness, hence losing.

The first and foremost reason they are 2-5 is the NFL's schedule makers were hell-bent on the Vikes starting slow. Let's see. Four of their first seven games were on road the against the Saints, Jets, Packers and Patriots. All playoff teams from last season. 3-4 was the best case senario without a few lucky bounces/calls. An early bye week adds insult to injury. Green Bay's first seven games, on the other hand, were road games against Eagles, Redskins and Bears. Not a 2009 playoff team among them. Oh, and their bye week is week 9. You tell me they did not have it gift wrapped to start out fast. And once you start out slow, the negativity creeps in and acts like a cancer eating away at their confidence. And the season is an uphill battle the rest of the way. And if you start out fast, optimism sets and gives you the confidence that you can win any game. We'll see if the Vikings have the intestinal fortitude to pull out of the funk the league helped to create. Hopefully so. Skol Vikings!

Hey Jared Allen: The season has started come back from the honeymoon, grow your hair out, and start worrying more about being a good(right now I'd settle for contributing)football player than being a media sensation.

Brad Childress won't be asked to leave. He'll be pushed and shoved out the door with profanity hollered at him and told to never come back again or the cops will put him in the can.

packers beat the jets on the road. funny how you forgot to mention that (since you were talking about the season through week 8). or how the vikings are lucky that they won't be playing in green bay when it's freezing in december. they have a fairly nice warm cozy schedule to conclude the season.

Well. here it is end of the half, Cards 14 - Vikings 10. Gutless Cur Childress takes a knee with 24 seconds left and one timeout left...At this point I want the Cards to win, will gladly take the lost to get that Worthless Dog Chilly fired!!!
#34 Nov 7, 2010
no offense, no defense, no special teams, poor coaching decisions, wasting draft picks..I taught him everything he knows. GO CHILLY! and thanks for making me the 2nd worst coach of all time.

Wait a minute.
The Vikings are talented and underachieving?
This passes as news?
I have a news flash for you, Mr. Fowler:
FOR THE BETTER PART OF 50 YEARS THE VIKINGS HAVE BEEN UNDERACHIEVERS.
This is not news.
The only thing newsworthy about the Vikings is why people invest time, energy and emotion into such a loser organization.

I losing my a-ss on the Vikings. I thought for sure they'd go undefeated and roar right through the Super Bowl.
