There are two things I really want to see in my lifetime, a man on Mars and the Vikings winning a Super Bowl. Both will happen eventually. Hopefully we don't have to wait for a Mars Super Bowl :shock:
Hmmmm. Why do you want to see someone on Mars? Fascinating.
I wasn't alive for the moon landing and I think this will be the next big great leap forward for us as a civilization. Would be nice to see history.

So firing your proven winning coach is the path to success. WOW! :whistle:
Well, I guess you are happy with Zimmer missing the playoffs every other year then :confused:
I'm happier with us making the playoffs and advancing every other year than I would be with us only making the playoffs every 4th year and not advancing at all. That is what I would expect out of a new coach if we fire Zimmer.

If you believe we actually did land on the moon :shock: I was alive to see the broadcast. It was so freaking amazing. Leaves sports in the dust.

How would you know that? You can not tell the future and neither do I

This is a very good point...truth be told the Vikings have been one of the more "successful" franchises in the NFL for what three decades? Since '87 18 play-off births, 13 10+ win seasons, 5 NFC title games.

I don't know that and neither do you. It is what I would expect if we changed coaches. Also we could keep Zimmer and win the next 6 Super Bowls in a row. We don't know. I'm not expecting that either.

Ugh.

Yet another Vikings fan leaves out the Bud Grant years, when we actually went to Super Bowls.

The most dominant era of Vikings history, hands down, was the 8 seasons from 1969 to 1976. It was one of the most dominant eras for ANY team in any period. Those teams were 87-24-1 for an average of 10.8 wins per year in a 14-game schedule.

And no, the 1998 team was not the best ever. That title belongs to the ‘69 team — still the only NFL champion in Vikings history. They out scored their opponents by 18 ppg — 2 ppg more than the ‘98 team — and with a defense that gave up 9.5 ppg.

Over the three years from 1969-1971, the Vikings gave up 9.9 ppg and a cumulative 40.5 passer rating.

Hear me well, young’uns. To talk about how proud our history is and leave out the 69-76 Vikings is to ignore the greatest teams this franchise has ever fielded.

1969 team and 1975 teams are the best teams ever in my book, if it was not for the Pearson pushoff, Vikings would have won a Superbowl in 1975 in my opinion

Thanks for elaborating. Its one of those things I simply cannot relate to, so I'm always curious to learn what would make those kind of events fascinating or important to others.

That goes without saying.

Also didn't say the 98 team was the best ever, but the fact that a 15-1 team of ours didn't win the Super Bowl to me tells me it's never happening. I hope I'm wrong... I just want one. I saw my Mets in '86 and my Bruins in '11, so it's Minny's turn.

The Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Bucs and New Orleans Saints have so yes it will happen at some point.
