For me its...

"The Vikings have lost 38 consecutive road games when trailing after three quarters, the longest such streak in the NFL since the 1989 Buccaneers. (Thanks to ESPN's crack research department.)"

I mean WTF? That shows no heart. It's almost like we get down and stay down on the road.

"Vikings became the second team in football history to miss the playoffs after getting off to a 6-0 start"

also...



"Head Coach Mike Tice was let go after the 2005 season and was replaced by Brad Childress. "

Not winning a superbowl doesn't bother me its the fact that we were in 4 of them and failed every time. If we never went to a superbowl it wouldn't bother me as much.

We actually did win the NFL Championship before the leagues merged together.

Being Shutout by The Ball Sackers last year. Shutouts are rare. When was our last shutout of another team? I don't remember, but I remember being shutout 34-0 last year. That was the closest I have come to calling for Chill's head, and I STILL seek redemption. I won't be happy til we KICK SOMEBODY's BUTT in a similiar manner, preferably those damn green and yellow guys.

I dont mind G-Money missing the field goal as much as I hated watching Randy Moss drop one of the easiest touchdown catches in the history of our big games.

Not a stat, but I hate seeing those replays of the Steve Young run every year, and the Pearson push off in 75.

I cant stand that push off!!

I wasn't even born, but it still bugs me

I watched the game on NFL network about 2 weeks ago.
It is still depressing.

What bothers me the most is the number of PPOers who dwell on the negative.

The fact that it seems every qb has a carrer day throwing against our D (not so much this year).

41-0 against a weak Giants team in the 2000 NFCCG.

Not to derail - but that's what worries me the most about this game.
Kerry Fucking Collins would be a hall-of-famer if he could play the Vikings every week.

The Vikes playoff record--especially over the last twenty-years.

Not making excuse here, but, even afater he missed in Champ. game Vikes still held 27-20 lead.
Defense couldn't make a much needed stop and the offense couldn't get just one damn first down!
Anderson served us well-- helped get us there--that was a team loss with plenty of blame to go around.

We've held some bunk/weird stats over the years, but right now our "Red Zone" scoring production is at the bottom of the league. The Vikings have struggled in the Red Zone for 3-4 years now, and I hope we can figure out ways to get TouchDowns instead of 20 yard fieldgoals.

Seems like every so often a nobody has a career game against us or posts some kind of weird first or record.
Or the longest run from scrimmage in NFL history by Dallas.
Yikes!
The detested push-off has caused me to hate Dallas for life and almost derailed the relationship I have now.
She was once a casual Dallas fan- now after seeing the passion of a true fan she is a Vikes fan.

How about SD, Cromartie with the longest TD EVER possible (109 yds) on the FG miss. That does seem to happen to us a lot
