What up my fellow Viking fans! I have been a long time follower of the forum, first time poster. I have been a Viking fan for as long as I can remember. One of the saddest days of my life was the 1998 NFC championship game (close second 2009). One of the happiest days of my life was when we drafted AD (steal of the draft even at pick seven).
Having said this being a fan like many of you I have had to live with disappointment. Even after all this, after reading all of your posts during this season, I would like to say one thing during this tough stretch. Look at the positives. Before the season started if you told me we would have six wins with 4 games left I would have been ecstatic. I feel the great start we got off to was a curse. It gave us unrealistic expectations for the team we have.
Ponder as of lately has been very disappointing. Yet, I feel bad judging him before we get more around him. We need a true number one receiver, better guards (Charlie sucks), and a better OC would not hurt either. Can we get a slant Bill? I feel a few more good drafts by Spielman and company will help us greatly. If we can improve Ponders weapons and he still struggles then I agree time to move on.
In conclusion I would like to say let's enjoy the little things. Let's be happy we already doubled our win total. Let's be happy our pass defense has improved this year. We need to continue to see things in a positive light and keep things in perspective. SKOL Vikes4Life!!!
