ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. - Frustration levels are high among Minnesota Vikings fans and many of those feelings are fueled over the lunch hour at Bunny's Bar and Grill in St. Louis Park.

"I was pulling my hair out," said one fan. "It was not a nice game, and I'm not sure how many more we can even win."

That's the overall sentiment after a 1-4 start and a 35-10 drubbing at home on Sunday.

"It was very disappointing," said Peter Thomas from Minneapolis. "It's a matter of coaching questions and quarterback questions."

There are so many questions and few answers. Adding to the frustration was an offseason filled with optimism after a postseason appearance.

"They haven't developed a passing game and they can't stop the pass," said Bo Mitchell from SportsData and a Vikings blogger for the Star Tribune. "In today's NFL, that won't help you win."

Mitchell says changes could be on the horizon.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see a coach fired, players benched or players being used radically different," he said. "It's clear a shakeup is needed."

The staff at Ticket King say with only seven home games, the demand for Vikings tickets remains, but on Monday the "phones were quiet."

The Vikings travel to New York to take on the Giants on Monday night.
