Five wins. That won’t be the number. More like 8 or 9 I think. Regarding a rebuild, it is a relative term. Depends upon how you define it. I think Zim is back on his every other year make the playoffs mode. This will be a down year, but it won’t be as bad as five wins. Zim ain’t no Les Steckle, who had three.

God I dont wanna accept it but it’s TRUE. One can pray though that today’s NFL is different than it was even a handful of years ago and it’s not unheard of to FIRE a coach(head coach) mid season.Then again though to use Joe’s words,I think that would be very UN-Viking like.POS will probably get an extension with 5 wins. Maybe Zimmer and Sam Bradford have the same agent…hmmmm

I’m in agreement with Oberle, 8-9 is likely, but I could then get to 10-13 with a really stellar draft. If it is another down year, and they miss the playoffs, Zim and Rick should maybe be gone. If they only get five, it is time to clean house.

Keep in mind, week 17 the Bears needed a last-second field goal to beat our (almost) entire team of second-stringers (LOL). We had the talent to be 11-5 last year.
So far, the only disappointing loss in free agency is Mackensie Alexander to the Bengals for $4 million. Besides that, in my opinion, we either correctly refused to overpay or we trimmed fat from the roster.
Diggs’ loss hurts, but I think Thielen, Bisi, Tajae, plus a rookie can actually be a very competent receiving corps.
Barring a complete whiff in the draft, which I don’t think is likely, I believe our absolute floor is 8-8 this year.
