True, however I think this comment is more or less a build up from the last 3 pre-season games (I know our starters didn't play in this one) when our starters are out its a mess, have we even scored a touchdown with our starters in pre-season yet? Last night isn't an example you can use but what we have seen from our starters in pre-season has been nothing less than crap and I can understand why some people are getting a bit "tilted".

I get what you're saying but at the same time, the patriots are 1-3 in the preseason this year. Does that mean they're a mess? No. We don't know what they're running for a playbook, etc. Nobody is ever going to convince me that our team is a mess after the preseason

Definitely agree with you putting stock in pre-season isn't a fair analyze, and I don't think our team is a mess just yet. Us Viking fans don't need to be reminded of our rough history so we do get that little voice in the back our heads quicker than most. As for the patriots going 1-3, I'm sure Viking fans would be fine with 1-3 and crap all from the starters if we had a hof qb, head coach and few shiny rings to go with it. But don't get me wrong I see your point in pre-season and I agree.

I don't look at the record as much as how everyone is playing. No one outside of Heinike had any interest in competing. I don't care if they go 0-4, at least look like you wabt to be there.
