I believe the QB and receivers have a big part in it yes. I feel that if we can get those positions working better it will open the offense up so much and force others teams defense to spread out more and then look out! AP and Chester Taylor did an incredible job this past season and everyone pretty much new they were the ones to wacth - imagine what a threat they can be when the defense also has to look out for a passing game as well!!!!

I am very excited for the coming season and want the Vikings to do well. I do however think that Dallas is going to give us a very hard time. The Packers will I think depend alot on the QB but the few people I've talked to say that he is good. A different style than Farve but still very good. I keep telling everyone that there is a chance for anyone of course as the season has not even begun. Us Viking fans have hope as when they are on the top of their game they are incredible - they did beat the Super Bowl champs during the regular season!

Huge Giants fan here!

I think it has been said before, but I think the Vikings chances come down directly to QB play and the wide recievers. Although, Tavaris Jackson has been inconsistent, his recievers havent exactly lit the world on fire either--they dont have a WR that strikes fear in opposing defenses.

Otherwise, if the secondary holds up, they have a solid shot in the NFC.

My name? It isn't deep or anything...

I just thought it sounded cool...

Yes, that is a plus for the Vikings but I still think Dallas is going to be the ones to watch in our division this coming season!

Well things could be looking up for the Vikings in the next few seasons, only time will tell. This years draft and trades I think were good ones for the team (I hope anyway as only time will tell!) and am looking forward to the season.

Well my team maybe a step up but in the past hasn't been much better - Vikings!

This coming season is hopeful but I won't hold my breath because somehow it seems they always manage to screw things up! I shouldn't be so hard as I could never do what they do, just wish once things would go right at the end of the season so they could show people what they really are cabable of. Heck this year they walked all over the superbowl champs - all over them, yet couldn't even make the play-offs! Sad!

Well it is going to be interesting with the new team members to see how this next season plays out! Not too sure if I like how it turned out but then it could have been a lot worse!

It's hard to watch your team loose isn't it! Trust me I understand as you well know as the Vikings are well the Vikings! They are so inconsistant - they can play great one game (after all they did beat the super bowl champs this season!) and then the next look worse than a high school team!

I bet you love the movie "Invinsible" huh! I am not a Eagles fan and I love the movie!!!

Well maybe somehow we will get lucky and next season will be good for both our teams! Won't hold my breath eiter! My oldest is saying we have to watch the NFL channel tonight at 7 as there is going to be something on about the Vikings and the possibility of them looking at a new QB. Who knows. My son is up to the season 2016 for his video game now (has pnemonia and can't do anthing else really but watch tv) and says that he just hired a new defenseive coach Pat Williams. He also mentioned that on the game that Brett Favre is also a coach now. He says he is sticking to his video games as that is the best hope he has of seeing the Vikings go some where for awhile!

I am 30 and I still dream that my beloved Philadelphia Eagles will win a championship. I am not holding my breath for fear of turning blue or even purple.

Just thought this was sort of funny ... My son has been home sick from school (pnemonia and no not the funny part!) and has been playing a season with the Vikings on his vidoe game. He had to run down and tell me that he got Randy Moss and was doing great until team funds started dwindling so he got rid of Moss (said he shouldn't have gotten him in first place as he never has liked him since the times when he did play for the Vikings really) and they still won the championship. He was pretty excited and said he wished the season could really go like his game did! Yah, like that is going to happen in the next season - too much growing needed yet in QB and receiver department!

Just thought I would share that.

That was the exact word I was looking for and couldn't think of it earlier - consistency! No the QB doesn't have that yet and honestly I am not sure if he is the QB that will have it but I guess we have to give him the chance to mature and grow in the position. I can remember a long time ago when a lot of people had the same opinion of one Brett Farve when he first started as well. I can not tell which way I will go yet because Jackson does need some experience to gain that confidence level all QB's need to know when to take the chance and when to play it safe.

And yes, I agree completely that he didn't play consistant enough last year. Some people think that Tom Brady and other great QB's either are just great or they aren't and I don't believe in it quite that way. Yes, natural ability is a must and part of it but experience is also a big part and good receivers are a must as well. Behind any great QB that stands out there is always a great receiver doing his job as well.

Hey thanks for blogging on this as I really enjoy learning more and more about this. I need to grow in these areas as I enjoy the sport and now that my boys are all older and play football in school and are really into it I find I need to keep on top of this as it gives me common ground to start converstions with my teenagers!

Any good thoughts or comments please pass by way as some days it is so important to have something to say to a teenager to break the ice and nothing gets their attention more than when they realize you are really trying to be more involved and learn more about things they are into!

The QB position is the key to the team. Jackson didn't play well consistently enough last season for the team to make the playoffs.

So what does anyone have to say about the Minnesota Vikings! I really like their chances if they can get a passing game going a little more. With Adrian Pederson and Chester Taylor running the ball and if they can just get a passing game more stable along with their defense I really think they should do good in their division this coming season. Their passing defense does need work but improved alot towards the end of the season. When watching the Pro Bowl noticed there were a lot of Viking players and realized if the coach can just piece it all together they could do very well.
