Adams not doing so well. No sign of Wright yet.

Not certain any of these guys wearing purple deserve to be on an NFL roster. Maybe some of the defensive linemen or linebackers. If there are injuries, these guys will kill us if they hit the field during the regular season.

I think the Gophers could beat the Vikings at this point, mentally and physically. We are a mess. And after tonight, the 'its only preseason excuse' will be gone.

Seriously who even says that when no starters are playing??? Yeah we're a mess because our 3rd stringers aren't winning :roll: This is why I hate getting on here during the preseason. One quick flash to see what's going on on here and I see a ridiculous comment like that. Give me a break

Again it's a lot of 3rd teamers that won't be on the team. Am I the only one seeing that or am I losing my mind?

The only starters or guys that are "near" starters that recorded any kind of statistic are Treadwell, Robinson and Alexander. But we're really going to sit here and say, "our team is a mess" when we have practice squad guys and cut guys out there on the field. Makes absolutely zero sense

I'm sure he didn't understand what you're saying when he typed it.

No need to be getting worked up: it's only the preseason

No I get it. Its just no starters played. How can you even judge anything off of that. No less say we're a "mess"

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.
