Last season, the Minnesota Vikings went 10-6 and won the NFC North division title, but were stomped on by the Philadelphia Eagles in the first round of the playoffs.
This season, the team returns with high expectations. Nearly all of the starters are returning and the team has newly signed Brett Favre at quarterback. The team also added a couple of rookies, wide receiver Percy Harvin and offensive tackle Phil Loadholt, who are expected to contribute heavily.
The 2009 Minnesota Vikings have all the pieces in place to be a championship-caliber team, but there are still some things they have to accomplish this season to prevent disappointment.
