The Vikings will not make the playoffs because of the NFC North getting stronger with the Vikings getting weaker. Chicago got better, the Packers will be great and the Lions will win six to seven wins. Both lines are aging, the secondary is weak, the running game got weaker and Favre might not return.
Now i understand why this guy has so much negative rep....

I mean, anything is possible, and I really think the Packers will be a headache next year, but I still have trouble seeing the Vikings missing the playoffs with or without Favre as long as Frazier comes back. That pass-rush is just crushing.
As a Vikings fan, I realize that we probably have 1, maybe 2 years left of our defense being good, but c'mon. Next season, we could throw Spergeon Wynn back there and get 8 wins. Way too much talent on that team to not make the playoffs.

Didn't you guys have an easy schedule? And also really good luck with injuries? Not saying this was the case for the Vikings, but some teams get to the playoffs mainly because they happened to be the healthiest team that year. I remember seeing stats (a graph) that showed a strong negative correlation between # of games missed by starters and wins.
Brett Favre only improved our record by two wins. TJack or Rosenfail can win at least 10 games.
You do realize that once Favre is gone, you're going to be back to eight in the box, don't you? Favre made a huge difference on that offense, and despite the progression of your recievers this year, there is a large gap between your offense with Favre, and your offense with Jackson or Rosenfail.
