Y'all know the Vikes are gonna make the playoffs right?
 
Just making sure people are done sleeping on them. I called an 8-10 win season before it started. They're staying faithful to that call.

Beating the Pack in Lambeau will be our measuring stick. 49ers and then Lions on the road were nice and all but the Vikes need an even bigger statement.

Cutler is off to a shaky start this season and the Vikes really gotta capitlize on the easy schedule ahead.

Special teams played lights out today along with our defense. Offense puttered along but we have a strong core with Ponder, Peterson, Harvin, Simpson, Gearhart, and Rudolph. The team is a lot like the 49ers ground and pound except we'll start to do it better than them in the coming seasons due to our young talent developing further.

Tl;DR. SKOL VIKES

How on earth do you think they will make the playoffs with an 8 win season? I'm not saying that the Vikings for sure won't make the playoffs (though I doubt they will), but you honestly can't believe that an 8-10 season will put them there.

10 wins easily would, looking at the division.

I wouldn't bet on GB winning less than 11 games. They've still got immense offensive potential, they're proven, and at 2-2 are far from being out of it.

My lord its only 4 games into the season

You would think people would've learned to stop throwing the word playoffs around so lightly after last yrs Bills collapse.

NFL is usually different due to the parity of the league. Every year there's always that surprise team coming out of nowhere and having great success(49ers, chiefs, Bengals, Dolphins, etc, in recent years).

But that being said I'm not sold on the Vikings making the playoffs. Ponder has been good but they're going to need greater offensive production or hope AP recaptures his form. I rate them below Green Bay and Chicago in the division.

Minnesota has had a surprisingly impressive start, but let's revisit this discussion halfway through the season. I think at that point we can make a fair assessment of their playoff chances. Too early right now. Yes, GB is playing uninspired and questionable right now, but they'll likely turn things around and win the division.

Detroit could have had a legit shot at taking the North this year but they're surprisingly playing like baby du-du squirts too. Chicago is 3-1 too, if Cutler can stop throwing INT'z the Bears have a shot to win the division considering GB continues to stink it up and Lions never rebound.

That leaves Viks only shot being what will be a very tight wild-card dog fight down to Week 17. The NFC East is going to be tight minus Dallas, some are saying the NFC West is the best division in football and while Carolina is 1-3 ATM, they're good enough to put something together and finish 9-7 possibly being right up there in the end.

The ending result will probably be the NFC East and NFC West winning the wild-card slots and ending with Minnesota falling apart mid-season as the likely scenario - and best case - being they keep the race tight and perhaps find themselves barely missing the playoffs, right there on the outside looking in.

Assuming the Eagles take the East and 49ers win the West -the Giants, Redskins, 'Cards, and quite possibly the Bears, Panthers and maybe even an up-and-coming Rams will all be too much for the Viks to find themselves playing more than 16 games this season.

The Jets aren't making the playoffs, I'd be mad too.

Neither are the Vikings so your point is moot.

Despite the impressive start, it's still early. I'm still not counting Detroit out yet but they need a turn-around FAST.

LOL, this would be a typical response from a homer Viks fan instead of actually engaging into the actual discussion and explaining why anything I said is false, incorrect, etc. Let's take a look at this exact thread by the middle of the season, and then let's check it out again 'round-about Week 15 or so.

Then we'll see your entire "never post about football again" comment blow up in your face. Even still, you'll do just as you always do... which is continue to talk shit even after you've been bitch-slapped/son'd/owned or whatever you wanna call it. You seem to be pretty good at bad things as such.

4-1 Vikings

Schedule has us poised to go 8-1 til we hit the divisional wall. Bears, Packers, Texans, then Rams.
