Minnesota Vikings fans will have to take solace in the fact that their biggest win of the 2012 season came Monday morning when Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton signed off on a bill that will let the Vikings build a $975 million dollar stadium in downtown Minneapolis that will be ready for play in 2016.

Faced with the possibility of owner Zygi Wilf growing tired of waiting around for a new stadium and looking to sell or move the team somewhere else, Minnesota politicians finally agreed to giving state dollars toward building a new stadium.

So the Vikings will stay in Minnesota. Now the question becomes, who among the current organization will be around by 2016? It's no secret the Vikings are in a rebuilding mode and they will certainly suffer through some growing pains over the next few seasons.

The stadium battle will help put the current team's troubles in perspective; if nothing else, at least Vikings fans still have a team. And while spring mini-camps and summer OTAs are full of optimism and the hope of better days ahead, most of the Vikings faithful are fully aware that a tough couple of seasons lie ahead.

What is expected however, are signs of improvement, proof that better days are indeed on the way.

With that in mind we take a look at what might be the five biggest problem spots for the Vikings heading into the 2012 season.
