Im excited this year too.Even the preseason will be exciting cause we have so many new players to watch.The rookies we have are going to have to mature at a faster rate than some teams cause we need them now.Go Vikings

Yes im excited also I want to see the line up in the secondary & how they play under the new defensive coach . & what kind of blitz he dials up. I like safety Smith & CB Robinson with his speed to cover receivers. I have been hearing a lot of good things about LT Kalil & how strong his punch is. I want to see Greg Childs He was one of my draft picks for the Vikes so im really want to see him play.

I'm excited for the Vikings fans
The preseason gives them a ray of hope, a reason to drink, a reason to stock the freezer with cheap chicken wings, another reason to drink, a reason to think up creative excuses to call in sick on Mondays in the fall when they are too hungover to stand up, a reason to buy more purple spandex, another reason to drink, all in anticipation of training camp when the fans practice getting drunk eating chicken wings and wearing purple spandex. It takes a lot of practice to be one of their dedicated fans so from me, LBF, let the preseason begin already. Have fun

I excited and looking forward to the season. I want to see how the Vikings have improved and what still needs to be addressed.

It's just good to have football back!

I wouldnt mind Favre as the Vikings QB coach I know he goes down to the school yard & coaches the kids there sometimes so he does like coaching Maybe the Vikes can get Favre to coach for them if they offer him a helicopter ride back to Minnesota
