RE: NFL 2017

This has been an odd season for us Viking fans in Minny.

The success this year is very unexpected considering our starting QB and RB were lost in the first 4 weeks.

A journeyman 3rd string QB plugged in along with a RB tandem of Jerrick McKinnon and Latavius Murray doesn’t exactly strike fear into opponents.

So, what’s transpired?

A defense as good as advertised, and an offense that is doing enough to win games.

The emergence of the OL, Keenum and Adam Thielen @ WR has done enough to take pressure off of the D and everything is running smoothly.

The fan base really doesn’t know what to do

In 1998 and 2009 everyone talked Super Bowl because we felt our team was the clear cut best around.

Those seasons ended in heartbreak.

So, here’s what I’m hoping transpires this season:

Low expectations and the fear of a demoralizing defeat have kept emotions in check, so this time, we’re going to end up going all the way, because we don’t believe it can actually happen and because we haven’t allowed ourselves to become emotionally invested.

I have similar feelings. I never expected any of this. I surely didn't see us ending the season with the best record in the NFL. We were more than halfway through the season before I felt like I could even open my heart again. Heartbreak will do that to you. I'm just trying to feel at peace with what they've given me. I go into every season with one wish, beat those filthyNewYorkGiants and I'm okay with whatever comes after.

^ mission accomplished.

You got the Giants twice and we beat the Pack twice, plus ruined their season by knocking Rodgers out.

I only have to win 2 games at home in order to go to the Super Bowl. Two games. At home! Man. The feels.
