    you gotta look at the game at carolina and finishing at chicago with the giants at home……conceivably i see the vikings loosing all three of them if they have any injury problems or our nicked up at the end of the season. that will determine whether they win the division or even make the playoffs.

    i see the vikes starting strong…..struggling at mid season……getting a second wind……then dieing at the end……..10-6

    Chris, I hope you’re right about the 12-4 record, but for some reason, Dave’s prediction of 10-6 seems more likely, and it’s not because of our defense, either. The big question of course is at the QB position. If Rosenfels plays well, we may end up 12-4, but if he fails we could be looking  at a realistic 10-6. Like i said a few months ago, take a look at how San Francisco and Dallas dominated years ago. They had very good defenses, but also had team-leading QB’S in Montana and Aikman. They made sure everyone in the offense was involved, and utilized each position to almost perfection. It was like watching well-oiled machines when they got rolling. The closest the Vikings came to that type of machine was when we choked to the Falcons in the NFC championship game. We are in fact one, team -leading QB away from  being that machine that rolls to the Super Bowl.
