^Might not be the case, I mean, who knows, Coughlin is an aggressive coach, and if you can recall from last year, the Vikings absolutely embarrassed the G-Men on their home turf. Never know, though it's obviously a valid possibility.

Williams Bros. suspended for final four games -- this can't help the Vikes win 3 out of 4. Of course, we still need to win out.
William Henderson didn't have to run people over. His preferred method was levitation.

What's interesting is that with the news of the Williams' Bros, the Vikes going 1-3 is not out of the realm of possibility. I imagine they might only be favored against the Lions. Were that to happen, they'd be 8-8.

Now the Bears losing to us and one of the Jax/Hou/NO games, again not out of the realm of possibility, they'd be 8-8.

If those two plausible scenarios play out, we're not out of it even if we drop one of the Jax/Hou games. We could still finish 8-8 and hold the tie breaker.

We shall see, but I suspect this thing won't be decided until Week 17.

It could be argued that we have already had our scary ending. We are now competing on the commissioner's nickel, thanks to the parking of the Williams' boys.

I feel like we got a new life. A huge part of me hopes our players don't feel the same way, as it could be argued they already squandered the first one. The good news is that we have screwed the pooch so bad, there is little or no danger of backing into the playoffs. Looks to me like we are going to have to actually start winning some football games to be in the hunt, winning all of them gives us a reasonable chance of winning the division, which is a bit more than we had 24 hours ago. Vikes fans have got to be more than a little frustrated by this recent development...I know that many were sweating Detroit before these suspensions (trap game)... now they are really nervous.

The good news for them is that we will be rooting for Detroit, and I can't recall them EVER helping us out--although I do seem to recall that they were once 0-12 going into a game and winning...who was that against....lemme think....oh ya, I remember now... it was against the Vikings.

During the off season I had us 7 - 5 and going 3 - 1 in these last four games. I still say the best we do is 3 - 1 through these last four games. Obviously, that just won't be enough.


Vikes wont win shit without the williams brothers. They lose out. Ill bet money on it.

I agree! At least I hope so. ANY of these teams can win it outright with a 9-7 record... May be even a 8-8 could win it. Parity? No, Ineptness.

I agree with Zero's take.

The Packers win out they'll probably get in because I think Minnesota is going 2-2 over this final stretch.

However, I don't know how the Packers can win out. They would have to turn into a completely different team to do so.

My guess is they'll finish 8-8 which would be fitting for a team that has gone back and forth all year.

I like sitting in the "ten hole" in the draft, but I will still be yelling at either the TV in the bar or this stupid monitor along with all the other crazy basthaads that inhabit the gameday chat/you know what. The difference this week is that they can no longer break my heart for tyhe rest of the week. They already did that Sunday before last. I've already gone into PPO, given out my congrats to those folks (classy response on their part, btw) and resigned myself to looking for ways to fix this team. (If ONLY they would come to their senses and put ME in charge :icon_smile: )

Bottom line, what happens, happens this year. If the Vikes win the division, I sincerely hope they do well in the playoffs, if it's the Bears, well, I'm not THAT far gone, yet...

I plan to root extra hard for Brett and co... I would sure like our 3rd to become a 2nd or better...

If we are still mathematically alive after this weekend, well, like a wise politician once said, I'm not flip-floppin', I'm merely adjusting my position as a different set of facts unfold. :thumbleft:

Yeah I tell you what being 8-8 into the playoffs... wouldn't that feel a little weird haha. I will wish good luck to whoever wins the division. Should be an interesting year in the post season regardless. This year has been crazy.
