Overlooking your opponent is something Minnesota has done too often in the past. The Vikings have great depth (minus the O-Line), and should win, I’m a grandma and a Vikings fan which means I’m pretty much perfect but “it’s just the Bills” is a mentality that I hope the players don’t have.

They aren’t glossing over any team. Zim doesn’t have that mentality and won’t let the players act as if it’s an automatic win. This morning Kyle Rudolph was on 93x and said the same. They have a decent defense, and writing off any team is foolish in the NFL. I agree with both of you. I was more pointing at the glossing over from the fans, but players do it as well. I’m a grandma and a Vikings fan which means I’m pretty much perfect Players on all teams do tend to overlook teams occasionally, NCAAF and NFL alike. Philadelphia was overlooked in my opinion, with players getting too excited about playing a home SB, as well as overlooking a backup QB. No other explanation for a blowout loss. Writing off any pro team is silly though.
Hang out with our tee!
Who cares what the fans say or think. Team isn’t looking at what anyone is saying. None of us are on the coaching staff or playing. They are the ones who are paid to take it one game at a time. To say the Vikings overlooked Philly is ignorant. To ignore the fact we didn’t have O-Line depth, D-line depth and an offensive coordinator who suddenly seemed clueless at adjusting is also ignorant. 31 point loss wasn’t just depth. Seriously, no one played well. To include our all-star defense. That’s overlooking your opponent. Also, the lack of coaching adjustments by the O-Coordinator as you pointed out. If this had been against a 6-10 team, then yeah, that’s over looking for the next week. You can make an argument about Shurmur who I’m still pissed at. But no depth, a journey man QB who came back to Earth and a gassed Defense isn’t overlooking. It means more work needs to be done, hence our off season. Two different things.
