Without offensive improvement, the Vikes could face a long, ugly season
class=img_thumbleft>The 2007 Minnesota Vikings schedule has been announced, and, at first glance, it looks like it could be an uphill battle all the way. Chicago looks to chew up the NFC North once again, including a Bears-Vikes match-up on Monday Nght Football in mid-December at the Metrodome. The Vikes will also face quality AFC West teams, including San Diego, Kansas City, and Denver. Add games against Philadelphia, Dallas, Atlanta, and the New York Giants (who may not be great, but always seem to have our number) and it could be a pretty rocky season unless there's notable improvement in the receiver corps and at the quarterback position (Brooks? Tarvaris? Brady Quinn?). Tell me what you think!
