Wanna guess how I think great offenses are built?  I think Zimmer has done wonders for our D, I just need to see someone who doesn't 'eat cakeballs' playing O-line for us.

Over the years I've enjoyed learning about Vikings past players that came before my time.  My father made sure to clue me in. Some of their stories are interesting.  From the few well known QBs they've drafted to what was at one time a storied tradition of stout Centers, to a safety that ruled from both defense and offense.  I never had more fun watching a QB than one year of Cunningham.  I never saw so much respect for a QB as when Moon was here, more amazing than one Brett year.  Randy Moss's short era was amazing of course.  I've been idling a bit over recent years, busy with life and waiting for the next Vikings team to really make a name for themselves and stamp in history.    I like to read others thoughts about where the team is now.

I'm worse luck.  I think I've been to 4 or 5 Vikings games and they haven't won any of them (2 at Arrowhead, 1 at Seahawks' Stadium (not CenturyLink), and 1 or 2 at the Metrodome).

I was in the endzone that Ellison scored the "game winning" touchdown. So the same endzone Tate scored the real game winning touchdown...
