I like this one much better than the ESPN poll:

NFL polls are stupid.

We're 1-0.
Tied for first.
Dat's good enough for me after one game.

I don't know Caj, you'd think the best team in the league could get at least one TD in a game and we should be 11 not minnie manning's team ;)

As long as we are underrated we should keep the hunger and eat our opponents hearts, then take their women on our Viking ships (no scandal this time, it’s a heritage thing this time ;D ;D ;))

That's true...but I do like the fact that we are being looked on favorably...notice that we aren't officially RANKED...but that the Vikes were singled out specifically as a rising team...THAT is what I like about this article.
The jerkwads over at ESPN are still doubting Thomases...but that will soon be rectified...after we beat both Carolina AND Chicago!!!
YEAH!!!!

I guarantee no coach or player on the Vikings staff or roster knows what ranking Yahoo has given us - or cares to know.

Whenever we move up these poll or ratings thats when the problems seem to begin

Wow.
That's amazing.
I bet he's glad he bought the insurance.
Wonder what the premium was?

I would rather have us ranked lower than that.
We seem to perform better when we are "under the radar" so to speak.
I really hope we continue to improve as a team, but I could care less about these team rankings

Now a win is a win and im not trying to take anythign away from it....but we very easily could have lost that game if Washington would have scored on any of those three field goal drives, Clinton Portis didnt play the starting role, we didnt bag a single sack, and we still cant run the ball.
I think a #11 or #12 ranking is fair after one week.
These rankings always take into account presedence.
I think we are likely a better team then the Bears but they were the division winners last year and we weren't so until a few more games pass they will be in the top 10 and we wont.
Still 1-0 playing a softened Carolina team.
I asked my magic 8 ball and it says "outlook looks good"!.

If the Vikes are ranked #1 in febuary then I'll get excited. I'm not going to spray my pants know, a lot of football left, and an important home opener this week. I belive the vikes will be out for blood this week. tomlin helps us win this one, turnovers and sacks.

HaHa... They have Green Bay listed under the "needs work" category.
They should have made a new category for Green Bay like "needs nothing short of a miracle".

i like the fact that we are rated that high but to tell u the truth i don't think we should be right now....if we beat carolina then maybe but prob not now. and also look at his other rankings, he has the chiefs below the packers, now i know that is off.

NEED WORK
(Listed alphabetically)
Green Bay Packers (0-1)
Houston Texans (0-1)
Kansas City Chiefs (0-1)
Miami Dolphins (0-1)
Oakland Raiders (0-1)
Tennessee Titans (0-1)

the bottom 6 teams were in alphabetical order, NFL was being kind to the raiders and packers ;)
