Vikings expects ‘a lot better season’ says co-owner Mark Wilf

Mark Wilf, Vikings

Minnesota Vikings co-owner Mark Wilf expects his team to do a lot better in the 2019 NFL season.

This was what Wilf told the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Sid Hartman (via Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio) on May 19.

We expect a lot better season, and we’re working hard every day. I know our coaches, and staff, and players are working hard and getting ready for the season.

Well, it was a disappointing season. We didn’t like the way it ended and it was a bitter taste in all of our [mouths] and we got right to work the day after that game.

Coach (Mike) Zimmer, (general manager) Rick Spielman, the whole organization has had a plan, and we’re executing it and we like the changes, so far.

Wilf also told Hartman he expects bigger things from Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, who threw for 4,298 yards, 30 touchdowns, and interceptions last season.

Wilf was also pleased with the Vikings’ draft haul which included Garrett Bradbury, Irv Smith, Jr., Alexander Mattison, Dru Samia, and Cameron Smith. The Vikings co-owner believes the team plugged some glaring holes with their rookies and free agent acquisitions.

Minnesota has made it to the postseason in just three of the last nine years. The last time the Vikings made it to the postseason was during the 2017 NFL season. They lost to the eventual Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game, 38-7.

The Vikings finished the 2018 season with an 8-7-1 record. Nonetheless, the wide receiver duo of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs established themselves as one of the best in the NFL.

You can be sure head coach Mike Zimmer, and Co. will do whatever it takes to become one of the NFL’s elite once again in 2019.
