May just be me but Adrian Peterson gives me night sweats.
It's not just you. After this season, Peterson is going to give all the Vikes 2013 opposing defenses NIGHT TERRORS during the offseason.

As others have said there are no sure wins .The team is still fuming over this year and has a point to prove,as do the coaches.A couple of good picks and nice FA will take the team back to winning 10+ games.

I think we are a couple of defensive moves away from an 11 or 12 win season.

with payton back all that matters will be playing saints football. We have consistently been a team that bets ourselves by making mistakes. That gets cleaned up for the most part with the addition of payton, also the D has been showing some signs of life in the second half of the season. Can't wait for next year.

Round 1: LB Jarvis Jones
Round 2: T DJ Fluker (I know we don't have a 2 at the moment)
Round 3: DE Margus Hunt, DT Jordan Hill, DT Daniel McCullers, or SS Robert Lester
Round 4: Joseph Fauria or someone from the previous round who fell
Round 5: DE Devin Taylor
Round 6: CB Tyrann Mathieu
UDFA: C Stephen Warner, G Blaize Foltz, WR Darrin Moore, LB Greg Blair

Re: What happens next year? Can we get back to winning 11 games?

We were just a few important plays away from being at least an 11 win team, this year. But if it wasn't bad defense, it was a turnover in so many crucial moments that swung games around. As poorly as they looked at times, the chances were there for the taking, and they just didn't get it done.

If you listen to Pat Yastinksomethingfierce, you'd think we were 0-15.

I'm not so sure about that Danno. It's fine as long as we don't have to contend with the learning curve on defense.

This team should have won at least 10.
