the 2006 minnesota vikings scored 30 points today! no one would have thought against such a tough seattle defense. our run d was very solid again, and chester proves why hes the man. great game bring on the pats baby!

i wouldn't be calling seattles d tough.
they let up up huge points against the giants and bears, even though they both have decent offenses, they shouldn't let up that amount of points.

good win though, especially loved the 95 yard run

I hear that. It's fantastic. But i'm sure everyone will chalk our win up due to hasselback's injury, and not due to talent... oh well. Guess we'll just continue to fly under the radar until we go down to miami for the superbowl.

No one on TV or radio brought up that issue. They were talking up the vikings D during the game.
I dont like the media is against us theme, it sucks, its old, its untrue.

Screw em I like being under the radar let them sleep on the Vikes and keep it in mind you sleep on the vikes you get a double ended battle axe stuck in you skull

Good game and while the score is important,
here is a very telling stat.

3 for 25

3 penalties
= 25 yards

Nice change for once.

Don't worry, the Vikes still willnot get any respect from the media until "hell freezes over."
According to them the Vikes would have lost if Hasselbeck hadn't been hurt.

I always hate the turning point after the Vikings play their sixth game... 6-0(9-7) 5-1(8-8)....
;D But thats when the defense was god awful, SKOL Vikes... I can rest easy now in the 4th quarter knowing the defense can actually force turnovers or a 3 and out.

??? where do you come up with this????
I just dont understand how people think the media hates minnesota teams.
We are a mid size market, the East Coast and California teams will get more attention because their markets are bigger, more media to cover the teams in that area. Oh but is the media that hates us, I know why because they are upset Minnesota has more coast line than California.
14,000 lakes b!tches, thats why they hate us.
Or maybe because the late great paul wellstone was our senator, oh i know, because we have the best hospital in the world in Rochester, that must be it.
BTW, are you saying you would want the mindless fans who follow a new team every year because thats who the media focuses on as vikings fans?
Your media hates us thing is retarded, get over it

Yeah...that was the old offense, defense, special teams and the old coaching staff. I don't think we can draw any parallels there! Don't EVEN bring that up...it scares me.

I agree and especially if we can win at home next week against NE.

That being said, it amazes me how many fans need the national media to take notice of this team....like it somehow legitimizes the Vikes.
I for one, dont give a rats A$$ what the media thinks of this team...in fact, I would be happier if non Viking fans never watched this team until they have no choice int he playoffs.

Our remaining schedule is very favorable and WE FANS know that we have a solid team.
If they continue to get better as the season progresses, we COULD do very well this year.
Time will tell....but I like what I see so far....
and if the NFL Media people dont want to give them props.....F'um.

I'm going to regret this I'm sure but what the hell are you talking about PurpleRide?
Everything in your last post is completely out of left field.
Maybe you should sit the rest of this one out.


Personally, I don't care what coverage or attention we get/don't get nationally.
It doesn't affect anything in any way.

Agreed.

I don't even read Vikings coverage anywhere but on PP.O, I even skip over the articles now.

Living in the south doesn't mean your white trash (sometimes it does) I lived in the hillibilly land for 6 years and not everyone is challenged.

No reason to fear it if you believe in the current team we have now. The Vikings are punch you in the mouth football team now, and have that "killer" instinct we needed in years previous to this one.

"Challenged Hillbilly lover'd" is what the automatic editor automatically changes "retarded" to.

I predicted 24 points, without a D touchdown.
That was a bonus score.

Even with Hasselbeck in there, we would have won 24-20

I'm just yanking your chain a bit....actually it surprises me that any Vikings fan on this board would take "personal" shots at another Vikes fan....

Just kidding! I truly am a hillbilly but am very happy today.

If we can't have a feel good thread after this win, we must be hillbilly challenged whatever!

I agree with you Ultra. Great win.

This season I think is the first one where I have actually looked forward to watching the defense play more than the offense (although they played well today).

The media will turn their heads the other way when we beat the next 3 teams..

after that.. they will be FORCED to acknowledge a team that is quickly rising to the top. wait to see where we stand in the power polls, and if we get a game on the nfl rewind. for sure one game will be atlanta - pissburg.. maybe the mia/gb game.. should be our game. but how many games ended this week with last minute wins?

seems the powerhouse teams arn't so powerhouse anymore.. and there is a complete lack of a clear #1 team who noone will beat.

just wait till the season is about to end and the media realizes that they shoulda been riding our bus to miami!!

I have doubts that Jimmy, Terry & Howie (plus whats his name) pick the highlights.
The talking heads typically aren't involved in the production of the material.

Yes, my point is the national media will officially start to recognize the Vikings this week and if they beat the Patriots they will officially be on the bandwagon until they lose to some half-wits.
I prefer when they give the Vikings minimal respect.

Ah, okay.

Well, tune in tomorrow morning when Week 7's "The Final Word" Power Poll comes out.
I'm sure the monkeys in the back room will work that whole "media respect" angle into the final rankings.
