Minnesota Vikings: Five Reasons They Will Be Better Than the Critics Think

The Minnesota Vikings are on the move and hope to have a very successful future ahead of them.  Over the past few weeks the Viking organization has worked very hard to put out the best possible team.  The Vikings acquired starter Donovan McNabb in the offseason along with quality back-ups Joe Webb and Christian Ponder. Ponder was perhaps the most "pro ready" quarterback to come out of the draft.  The Vikings are finally looking solid in a position that has caused some major issues in past seasons.  

Leslie Frazier has also been given the reins providing stability and a new coaching style that should be interesting to watch as the season goes on. After dealing with many crisis last season (metrodome collapse, Favre finally breaking down, and having to start a scout team quarterback in the last few games) Frazier has seen it all and kept calm during the storm.   

Another position that the Vikings organization has revamped is wide receiver. Not since Chris Carter and Randy Moss have the Vikes seen a dominate pair of receivers.  This year with some fresh receivers the Vikings look to become a threat in the passing game.

The Vikings running game will also be a key role in their success this year, relying on Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart to carry a tremendous load.  

As always the Vikings defense will need to step up from last years performance after posting dismal numbers and being a non-factor.  Last years key players will need to step their game up tremendously if they want this team to go anywhere this season.
