They'll blow it but it's fun while it lasts.

I'm also not exactly sure why it's "sneaky" other than no one wants to talk about them because they aren't Green Bay and are dominating the North. Even the Thanksgiving Day game between Minnesota and Detroit was completely hijacked by GB and Bitch Face Rodgers talk

Dominated the Saints
Made the Rams their bitch
Nearly beat Pittsburg with Case Keenum finding out 10 minutes before kick that he'd be making his first start after prepping Bradford all week


It's "sneaky" because they're historically mediocre...
and when they do look good - they can't be trusted

Historically mediocre?

Other than the lack of a Super Bowl title I'm not sure that's true

Vikings are 8th all time in win %
Played the 7th most playoff games all time
The most division championships in the NFC North - 4 more than Green Bay - about to be 5 more
The most playoff appearances in the NFL North - 6 more than Green Bay - about to be 7 more
Only 1 less Super Bowl appearance than Green Bay
Top 10 number of Hall of Famers all time

Sure, the lack of a Super Bowl title sucks. Other than that one category I can't really see how the Vikings are historically mediocre....other than the fact they are in Minneapolis and haven't been around as long as the Bears and Packers.

In recent history they have been mediocre. Getting to the playoffs is a lot easier in today's NFL. Last time the Vikings were in the Super Bowl was 1977, and now they haven't been around as long as Green Bay or the Bears, they've been around since the Super Bowl era started. Green Bay was pretty mediocre from about 1973 until the Brett Favre era, but some of us remained fans. Packers have 1 more Super Bowl appearance, but 4 more Championships, and the Bears have 2 less Super Bowl appearances than the Vikings and 1 more title.

He didn't destroy the tapes. He stored them in a secret room at very low pressure.
