Hardly, but some of you act like the Vikings were the suckiest team that ever sucked. If that’s your opinion, then by all means carry on; meanwhile I did see some improvement in the team last year with continued improvement needed. I wrote up here a few days ago (that no one read) that I was all in for a full rebuild over the next season or two as I felt like the roster had gotten old fast….I still believe that and don’t think plugging in a rookie or two and signing a couple of free agents will do the trick. Meanwhile, let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and since it’s the offseason, time to complain full time because that’s all some of you contribute to the thread.
