2013 FOA DVOA Numbers don't look good for the Vikings

Owch, reading that chapter makes me want to write the team off, but so did FOA 2012. Last year MN had a 6.7 playoff chance. It's really interesting that DVOA would actually peg MN for less wins and worse playoff odds. I definitely see how assumed regression in the running game, a tougher schedule, and some other things would take away from a 10 win season, but I would think that the passing game would be assumed to improve, along with better stability with the coaches. I'm interested to see if this team can beat the statistics again. Are there schemes that don't do well with DVOA charting? Cover two on defense and a run heavy offense?
