In The Star Tribune, Zygi Wilf has this to say about fan reaction to the Vikings' struggles:
"The fans are great here. I don't think there is a lot of frustration. I think there is a lot of patience, and I just hope we can reward them with more and more victories sooner rather than later."
I don't pretend to have my finger on the pulse of all the hornheads, but Zygi is willfully blind if he thinks there is no frustration among Viking fans. The team could barely (and really didn't) sell out the opener. The team played against the Packers, and many, many Packer fans were able to get tickets that Viking fans didn't want. And certainly Viking fans that communicate on the internet have been expressing frustration.
There's hope among Viking fans. A lot of us are thrilled with the potential of Adrian Peterson and Sidney Rice. We recognize that the team has been competitive in all its games, and that they may be very close to taking a step up. And we love the defense. But clearly, there's "a lot of frustration" among most Viking fans.
