FFMastermind.com senior fantasy writer and Vikings Update correspondent John Holler reports according to the gaming website vegas.com, the Vikings are a 6:1 favorite to win the Super Bowl. That’s third behind the Patriots (4:1) and Philadelphia (7:2). The other top contenders include Green Bay and Indianapolis – both at 7:1 – and Kansas City at 8:1. Whether this translates into on-field success, the Vikings are making believers and, if the Vegas odds mean anything, it should come down to the Vikings and Eagles for who goes to the Super Bowl to represent the NFC.
SO WHAT.......my friend at work picked up a mag where 15 of the "TOP" writers picked the superbowl final,,,,,,,some were logical INCLUDING a couple of viking picks in there but the most bizarre was some fella who picked the Seahawks 28 over the Jags 24.............OUCH!!!

On paper, the 3 best NFC teams are the Eagles, Vikings, and Seahawks.
For the Seahawks to contend for the Superbowl, they need to play better defense, and play better away from home.
For the Vikings to contend, they're defense needs to play as well on the field as it does in theory.
For the Eagles to finally get over the hump, they need to not go into the playoffs lacking they're best defensive and offensive player.
I think any one of these teams is a logical choice for Superbowl representing the NFC. Any other team from the NFC is a darkhorse or a real long shot.
vikings.... baahhh!!!! Before Tice figured out he could keep a pencil behind his ear he shoved them up his nose causing irreparable brain damage. This is the year of the "Culpepper Quotient" as Tice once again gets scientifical on 'dat ass
I cant see that defense of the vikings carrying them to the NFC crown, even though they did get a huge upgrade at CB with Antione Winfield...If I had to pick, I would put my money on Dallas or Philly, maybe Seattle, who did pick up Grant Wistrom this offseason.
portis fan is right, you guys gotta believe parcells is gonna win the bowl before his contract is up. And this could be the year. I mean, the boys have just as good a shot as the vikings. (remember that stat, 32nd ranked SoS)
