Vote: Minnesota Vikings in 2008


Vikings

The 2008 NFL schedule is out! And that means it's time to start overanalyzing each team's schedule and making predictions for 2008. Sure, the NFL draft may not have arrived yet and training camps are months away, but that's not going to stop SportsNation from getting its picks in, right? But before you get to prognosticating, let's take a look back and see how SportsNation has fared in its quest to predict the Vikings' record in each of the past two years:

SportsNation Schedule Prediction History
2006
2007
SN Prediction:
12-4
14-2
Actual record:
6-10
8-8








Overreaching
We understand Vikings fans were excited about the addition of Adrian Peterson, but the predicted 14-2 record was a big reach, especially with all the question marks Minnesota had -- and still has -- at quarterback. Fans had little regard for the NFC North, thinking their team would go 5-1 in the division (try 3-3). And then there was that midseason win against the Cowboys in Dallas that never materialized.
