The last tiny shred of hope the Vikings still had of making the playoffs disappeared tonight with their loss to the Giants. By losing their 8th game, the Vikings put themselves out of wild card contention, and also lost any chance of tying the 9-win Bears for the division lead. After a run of two straight post-season appearances, the Vikings find themselves back where they were in the second year of the Brad Childress regime, struggling to make it to .500. The future looks bleak for this franchise, given their stadium situation, their lack of a long-term quarterback and a head coaching situation that appears to be in limbo.
