I can't believe Michael Bennett could miss the entire season!!! I was getting so excited for the Vikes this fall, but now I can't help but feel a little disappointed etc. I am starting to think that being a Vikes fan has led to a diminished quality of life :wink: Any opinions????

:beer: ahhhhhh....let mama cleo rub her ball and tell you how this plays out.......

1) Mike Tice says James Wofford has a legitimate chance of being "one hell of runner" for us this season.

2) In training camp chris Hovan runs the 40 yd dash faster than moe williams and doug chapmen........tice says there "great short yardage backs" (ie...they suck, but any idiot that weighs 225 can run 2-3 yds a pop)

3) Mike Tice cuts james wofford and starts bragging up how good onterrio smith can be.

4)2nd preseason game onterrio smith runs for 13 yds on 21 carries. Goes out on the town after the game and is arrested for sexual assult.

5)Vikes sign Terry Allen. Tice tells everyone how great of shape terry is in and he is just what they need to make a super bowl run.

Hopefully i'm wrong, but until they put another receiver opposite moss we're screwed anyway!!!! What the hell, the bates, alexander project didn't work last season, why would it work this season. My advice to culpepper........run, daunte, run......

I'm afraid it's another season of agony for vikes fans. I'll still watch every game though....get p-owed when they lose, throw fits, throw beer cans, shout obscenities.

man i hate that i love the vikes!!!

ps.....

is it me, or is tice the worst frickin coach in the history of the nfl.......

He could single handedly ruin the pepper for his career. earth to tice......the "randy ratio" was the dumbest thing you could ever have said. I would rather see the "tice ratio" every time you call a bonehead play i get three kicks at that oversized "junk in your trunk."

we let dungy an billick among others go and kept this mentally challenged jerry's kid......i still can't beleive it.

That was great Fishhook. The following is a quote from Viking Update that I found amusing:

"Mike Tice kind of emerged from his bunker Thursday to discuss Michael Bennett. In a one-paragraph press release, Tice explained he was happy Bennett had opted for a second surgical procedure and hopes he can be back for at least part of the 2003 season.

Our question would be what part of that scenario would make Tice happy? Maybe he found some old "How to Deal With the Media" books of Denny Green's -- which likely went unread. When Tice says he was happy, it really means he finally quit sobbing in his office. When he said Bennett can be back for part of the 2003 season, he fears it will only be for the team Christmas party.

Ain't that the truth eric.....

another story from the mike tice files....He recentley painted his house canary yellow with green trim...NO LIE.....

He claims it will stir conversation when he has visitors

I'm guessing it will stir a little more than that if he has another losing season.

The nail has been hit on the head!!!! My viking highlight this year is the draft. By the time the Vikings finally got their pick up there I found myself laying on the family room floor in a fetal position, twitching. How can people screw things up so badly??? I'm surprised Tice wasn't wearing a flak jacket at the draft press conference.....

:eek:k: now i'm chuckling....that was pretty funny.

i can't wait for training camp....more stories on how great the vikes look.

another last thing about tice....Why does he always look like he's constipated. And the kicker, what sent me over the edge last season with him is the turd-eating smirk he always gives after a bad play, or a bad call or whatever......it's horrible. Looks like he's watching a rerun of stripperela on spike tv. (and enjoying it)

Fishook, you are very wise and know that of which you speak on matters of the Queenies. As one who has ruined many weekends being bitter and frustrated by Vikingland decisions, performances, outcomes and game-deciding scenarios that you couldn't even begin script into a really bad movie, I feel your pain.

I'm sure other teams are snake-bit too, but does it seem odd to anyone else that the Queens seem to show up on the wrong side of about 70% of the highlight and record breaking film clips?

Anybody feel better than 8-8?

its the super bowl losses....the missed field goal in the nfc title game....the antonio freeman monday night miracle catch and td........the vikes seem to be destined for failure.

But one day, like a goose hunter in the decoys, they will pop out of that shadow grass blind and POW......a super bowl CHAMPIONSHIP.....

The problem is, the 1/2 time entertainment is probably still a measly sperm in some 5 year old.

They are going no-where until tice gets da-boot.

On a bright note though....i disagree with a lot of the media on the offseason. Claiborn is a huge addition and irvin and walker are major step ups.

But I just don't think Tice could lead a vulture to road kill. It comes down to the players winning, but the coach has to be a leader. Someone they respect. I just don't see that.

ps...Pardon me....i get to opinionated when it comes to the vikes

The day will come we all can walk around in early february with a smile on our face, and a vikes jersey on our back....and not get made fun of.

Hey Now !!! I get accused of being morose & cynical - But I'm always positive at the start of the NFL season :roll:

Seriously! being a hardcore Vikings Fan is one of the most difficult things in life :eyeroll:

Last year I predicted (I think 11-5) & half way thru I just said I meant 5 & 11 :D

I have even less confidence now - than ever & have got to where it is better to laugh at them, then be down on mondays, cause of the outcome & at the end of the year (if they have a chance) it's much better to understand (It aint going to happen)

But on the Flip side with parity & how fast some teams have rebuilt & even prospered so soon gives hope .............naaaah!!! :******:

I'm a guy who loves & admires a good (Great) Defense -then just have a QB like Montana & you have a legitimate shot

But like already said the current coaching & QB situation (& does the defense have any REAL All Pro players left at all ???) Heck even if most were above average - I could have some hope

Oh well ! it's way too early to be so negative & depressed over football

Now if Pariese does not return & the Sioux don't find a blue chip goalie - I may have to be committed next spring :beer: :wink:

Bledsoe/Coates hooking up for something-teen receptions and 200+ yards, with the result blowing a 20 point lead in Foxborough.....

Macmahon coming off the bench (ala Kurt Gibson) to throw 4 4th quarter TD's blowing another big lead in Chi-town....

Jim Miller performing like he should against everyone else and looking like Johhny Unitis's reincarnation against the Queens....

For far too long, not having a d-back or a linebacker who can actually catch a ball - MAYBE knock it down - catch it, no way...

The list goes on and on.....

By God, when the planets do align, I'll be a happy man!

I still blame Darren Nelson for a majority of my lifes Woes......I harken back to his days as Fan Line host...weekly someone would call just to ask him what he was doing dropping the ball against the'Skins.

Well the viking talk has made me ill again :puke:

Did anyone else ever have the Vikings jacket with purple felt body and yellow plastic sleeves? The sleeves would freeze up and crack during winter recess in elementary school. A purple Vikes jersey with number 44 was also a "must have" when I was a kid. I suppose most of the guys here are too young to remember Chuck Foreman, Sammy White, Carl Eller, Jim Marshall, etc, etc.

Over the years, I have realized that the secret to being a Viking's fan is to have realistic expectations. At the beginning of every season, all I hope for is one victory against the Cheeseheads. If they beat the Pack once, I consider it a successful season, regardless of their record.

Quack,I had one of those jackets and a few jerseys to boot.I was a kid when the purple people eaters had the best defense in the league.You forgot a few hall of famers:Allan Page,Fran Tarkenton(the only Vike that Cosell would give credit),and how about the coach Bud Grant.They had an awesome defense and a pretty good offense,but they just couldnt win the super bowl.The AFC diminated in those days.Dou you remember when Miami had a perfect season?That year was another super bowl loss for the tikes.
