Happy Thanksgiving, VMB!

Post by Mothman » Thu Nov 23, 2017 4:08 pm

9-2 feels pretty good, doesn't it?

I'm impressed with the Vikings this year. Keenum's playing well and proving to be a very valuable offseason addition. Thielen's been outstanding. The defense has improved against the run and is playing strong. I have to give everybody involved credit: the moves made to improve this team are working and they are now firmly in command of the NFC North with just 5 games remaining. I hope everyone's enjoying it!

I know, I picked the wrong season to stop sniffing glue... er, I mean to step away from the board.

They really have managed to address most of the complaints I had the last few years. The timing is almost comical. My hat's off to them and I hope they can stay on this roll.

Clearly you've been holding the team back.

Addition by subtraction. Sorry, Jim. It's a business.

They won at Chicago and I was sitting there in the stands in the best seat I've ever had for a pro football game so maybe it's not me.

Nah, it was probably me.

Hope your time away from the board has been beneficial. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Hey we even overcame the refs in this win...

We only need two more wins for the division
Hopefully we can win enough for a bye now...


Green Bay has to go to the Steelers this week ...

so that’s a loss , the Bears I hope beat the Eagles
but that has the same chance as my NBA career
taking off this season.
