Vikings fans had a great year in 2009. The team was able to go 12-4 and win the NFC North.
The team made it to the NFC Championship game, where they lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion, the New Orleans Saints, 31-28 in an overtime heartbreaker for the Vikings .
During the offseason, the Vikings picked up cornerback Lito Sheppard to add much-needed depth in the secondary, and drafted, among others, running back Toby Gerhart.
Most importantly, Brett Favre will be wearing the No. 4 jersey for the Vikings in 2010.
