I was alive, but a baby during the first Super Bowl loss...

Broken heart, like many of us, ever since...

I think the bigger question is what happened to the defense in the playoffs they were super embarrassing. wasn't even close to how they played all year

My reaction: sadly, like many of us, I'm used to this kind of postseason disappointment.

Now I'm already wondering how long it will be before they get another crack at going to the Super Bowl.

Another let down by the Vikings. Im used to it, but it still hurts. The whole 'just one before I die' seems impossible. Wish there was a switch that would make someone just a causal fan.

I feel bad for the old time vikings fans. I know going through so many heartbreaks, its hard to look at the bright side with this team. But I feel like we'll come back stronger next season.

We sucked today.

That's my reaction. Don't really know what else to say.

I skipped most of the 2nd half. Too hard to watch. Its January 2001 all over again. Feeling like we gotta wait another DECADE or so to get to this championship game.

When the game was really on the line, like the second half of the Saints game, Zimmers D didnt know how to play. This continued all night today. And it was at every position. I have no idea how you fix it. I do know our offense has to get better. And we dont have the right personale for that to happen, although Cook will help. But the Oline and QB are just as big of question marks as they seem to be every year I have been a Vikings fan.

Zimmer also has been seriously out coached for the past 2 games. Thats kind of scary. And now looking for a new OC worth a dam, thats going to be hard. We burn through OC's.

I'd be all for Zimmer as a DC, but as a head coach, I'm done with him.

From this old-time Vikings fan, thank you.

I feel the same way. We'll be stronger next year.

And the delusion continues, just as it has for 49 years.

Our run game was weak, I think if Cook was playing, it would've been a different story.

Our D especially Rhodes was hurt and the Eagles took advantage of it.

Foles was a Pro Bowl QB with the eagles so IDK why people are surprised that he played decent.

Teddy was a pro bowl QB for us, and I dont really want him for us next year, other then a backup. We need a QB with a strong arm. I wonder how good Slotter is. Never hear a thing about him. I dont know if hes accurate or not. He seems to be a good size for a QB. But whoever plays, has to play behind a better Oline. They decided to suck about the same time as our Dline did.

Decent? decent? decent? I cant with this homerism, if you can anyway think foles having a 130 passer rating against the number one defense is justifiable or considered a decent game there is no hope.

:roll: Brought us to an NFC championship and a 13-3 record but done with him as a head coach? Makes sense

TBH d-line was the biggest fall off for me, we where wrecking qbs with pressure early in the year and sacked stafford 6 times in one game i believe. The end of the year Griffen looked like a dud and Hunter had a very un impressive season. Linval even looked like ####, very concerning.

I've pointed this out a few times, sick of hearing the we will come back stronger next year argument. I am willing to bet this defense isn't top 10 next year, whoever the qb is wont get as good protection from the o-line (like in the beginning of the season) and digs and theilen will regress stats wise all resorting in a 9-7 season, bank on it.

I feel like we had a better shot in 09. To me, that lost was much worse. I had a migraine for about two days after that game.

Also Eagles played Keenum today the way we were supposed to play Foles.

Depending on who our OC is next season, yes, we will be as strong, if not stronger than next season.

Danielle Hunter will make the Pro Bowl next season.

the guy who got 7 sacks with the most playing time hes ever gotten and was average at best the whole season? would you like to bet on this? This team wont have another 13 win season or better in the next 15-20 years.

I've seen 5 NFCCG losses in my life and I'm 30.

I didn't watch a SECOND of the second half and I never will. I knew it was donut game all over again.

Its hard to not say #### it and be done with it all. We'll be living on the Moon and Mars before a Super Bowl win.

Its over.

The core of our team is intact. We have a few things to figure out.
The play tonight wasn't indicative of what our team can be.

The defensive play has been disappointing the last 6 quarters.
The offensive line is still a work in progress. But much improved over last year.
