    2 of those games were at home. All of those games were against teams they "should have beaten". They "backdoored their way to a #1 seed" and won the whole show. We played very poorly yesterday. We got outplayed by a team that wanted to win more than we did. The Vikings needed to win to get to the dance. We needed to win to have a more comfy ride (that we can still get against a Colts team with nothing to play for).

    The sky is not falling everybody. Playoffs are fast approaching and we have too many people that remember what it felt like to lose to the Ravens in the 2nd round last year to not bring our best to this year's NFL Playoffs.

    Lets get behind our team for the stretch run amd show them a Texas sized homefield advantage that even Seattle would wish they had!!!

    While I do love the attempt to boost spirits, they were 13-0 going into their week 15 match up and they lost then lost again week 16 but still clinched the top seed with a loss for the Vikings and so week 17 they rested their starters.

    BUT, you are right, we could easily bounce back and make noise in the playoffs, we really do have the talent and ability to beat any team in this league. The problem is the offense has been getting progressively worse every week, the last 4-5 weeks. The red zone and 3rd down conversions have been BRUTAL, and unless they can figure those out it will be tough to beat anyone
