Ain't that the truth! I think the Vikings could be quite a bit better and still struggle to win 6 games. They have to be decided underdogs in each of their meetings with Green Bay, Detroit, and Chicago. We're just going to have pound those non-division foes, especially week 3.
I'm very pessimistic about the Stadium issue. I don't see the state coming through with the funds to underwrite what the League thinks their fair share of the stadium expense should be. And I think that if nothing gets done in this session, a huge long shot at best, we might have another Minnesota franchise move to LA, like the Lakers did so many years ago. (I don't think that LA Vikings sounds any worse than LA Lakers.)
