  1. Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?!?

    [size=18px]Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?!?[/size]

    1. Going into yesterday’s game, the Vikes had the most wicked road schedule that I’ve seen in the league in a long time! Every respective opponent was in first place in their division, Cincinnati (6-2); Atlanta (6-2); Chicago (5-3); Carolina (6-2); and the Giants (6-2). Though we were blown out in all except the Giants game, it’s tough to criticize a poor road record with that level of competition.

    2. Combined record of teams the Vikes have lost to: 32-13 (.710) (WOW!); combined record of teams they have beaten 14-19 (.424); combined record of remaining opponents: 28-35 (.444); combined record of remaining opponents minus Pitt and Chi: 15-30 (.333). They are beating the teams they should, and losing to the top teams in the NFL. Given this, it is possible they could finish the season out 5-2, which might be enough to win the division or make the playoffs at 9-7. Once in the playoffs, anything can happen.

    3. After a winnable road game at Green Bay, the Vikings finish out the season with four of their last six games at home.

    4. Two of three team components are gelling, special teams and defense. Offense was never a problem for the Vikes in the past (with or without Pep) so it seems likely that this would be the easiest piece to correct. If the offense gets hot and the D and special teams continue to play at this level, look out!

    That last game of the season in the Metrodome may shape up to be a classic one for all the marbles.

    Not to sure about playoffs at this point...

    I voluntarily agree to not indulge in any alcohol, drugs, or engage in any other illegal activity that may in any way jeopardize the years of hard work we as a team have committed to our goal of a championship season in '76.

    Finally the last game of the season is a home game!!

    But back to the original post, we still have to play Pitt and Chi(maybe) that also will be the top of their division.

    We must win atleast 3 out of 4 of our remaining home games, especially CHI.

    We must win atleast 2 of our 3 remaining away games with GB and DET a must win.

    We need Chi to lose at least 3 games for insurance purposes, at Pitt, at TB and home against Car.

    Minnesota and GB have the easiest schedules the rest of the way but we have 2 games on them. We must control our own destiny here and beat them this week, and with that win, we can pretty much seal their fate.
