No where near as long as you.

Since the 2000 season, I started watching football on Sunday nights and began leaning towards the Vikes the came the NFCC game against the Giants and that convinced me. Any team who could perform so pathetically had to be the team for me ;D

hahahaha..thats funny.

What a game....I knew that game was over after 6 seconds..I just had a feeling.

So you have had only 4 years of disapointment...my heart has endured a solid 19 years of it...I think 'The Man From Purple' has had 37 years of it.

He should get a nomination for the Hall Of Fame just for enduring such pain for so long

My knowledge of football was a bit rusty that season - but even I knew it was never a good sign to be 14 points down before your QB has even stepped out onto the field

Indeed I have, 37 long, crazy, hectic, joyous, heartbreaking years. Kapp... Tarkenton... Page... Marshall... Foreman... The Purple People Eaters... Bud Grant (all-time hero)... it's been great. Freezing my butt off at the old stadium. Winning 4 NFC titles - and losing 4 Super Bowls. But when we do win a Super Bowl (after Red's gone), the happiness will be that much sweeter. Hang in there, guys, it'll be ours one day.

Now I'm off to listen to the Cheesehead song again (about 2/3rds down the page):

Ok gonna have to get things rolling...

What is the worst game you have seen the Vikes play in?

And whats the best you have seen the Vikes play?


I will start things off...Minnesota 0 Giants 41..outgained something like 500 yards to 100, Giants had possession for 43 minutes,Culpepper had the worst game of his entire career,and we made the Giants look like they could actually win the SB,when in actual fact they werent that much special.....i watched that game with a Giants supporter,I confidently said to him we were the better team and we would win..only to be utterly humilated.

also in there, the two drubbings the niners handed us in the playoffs in the late 80's

Great games....mmmmm

20-7 win over the Bears in 86
44-10 win over Saints in the wild card game in 87
36-24 win over 49ers in div game
31-7 win over Bears in 88
the five game streak we had in 88 (I listen to 3 of them) when we outscored our opponents 167-26...probably the best spell of football Minnesota have played in the time I have followed them
All of 98 bar the Champ game
Last season at Green Bay in the first quarter
2 weeks ago in Green bay

anymore from anyone else!!!!

Worst Game - COMFORTABLY the 98' loss to Atlanta.

Honorable mention to the 99 defeat to St Louis, and the 03 end of season mess to Arizona.

Worst game I remember for you guys was your drubbing in the NFC title game against the Giants. Made worse by how easily the Ravens handled them the next week.
