  1. Draft 2012: Guys i like - Early Edition/Offense

    by , 01-02-2012 at 10:15 AM
    RB:
    Jeff Demps - Florida, 5th - 7th
    Chris Rainey - Florida, 5th - 7th
    - Two very alike runners, both is pure speed and run around the 4.3, If we want a change of pace kind of guy, both can also take over at returns and we can use Percy more on offense instead.

    WR:
    Justin Blackmon - Oklahoma State, 1st
    - Reminds me of Greg Jennings, with his height/speed, very hard to contain, finds holes in the opposing defence and very rarely goes under a 100 yards. ...

  2. So Long, Jim...

    After Sunday's game against the Bears here at the Metrodome, FB/TE Jim Kleinsasser will call it a career. Thirteen years of unselfish play, team-first attitude, hard-nosed football and workmanlike effort will be gone, but NOT forgotten.

    Drafted in the 2nd round (44th overall) from North Dakota in 1999, Jim Kleinsasser played 180 games in thirteen years for the Purple. His stats aren't the greatest (192 receptions, 1,688 yards, 6 TDs; 43 rushes, 147 yards, 1 TD), he wasn't flashy, ...
  3. Dreaming out loud.

    I like looking ahead to spring, free agency, the draft.

    The one thing Childress initially got right was his "you build a team from trenches" speech. Initially we did just that.

    On defense Pat and Kevin Williams anchored the middle of our defensive line. We traded, a lot, and brought in a DE liked Jared Allen.

    At the time we signed Steve Hutchinson to a contract. A lot of people thought we were crazy to pay a guard that much money. Still ...

  4. Should the Vikings Move to a 3-4 Defense in 2012?

    by , 11-18-2011 at 03:50 PM
    Today, I heard a rumor that the Vikings could be moving to a 3-4 defense in 2012. If this could help our pass defense, I would be in favor of this move. If not, then I would suggest they stay with a 4-3 defense.

    If the Vikings wanted to move to a 3-4 defense, here's what I feel could work:

    NT: Start Ayodele (318 lbs.) for now. Rotate in Guion and Evans. Draft a 320+ lb. NT (unless they can find someone good in free agency).

    DE: Start Kevin Williams and ...

  5. It Was 25 Years ago Today.......

    by , 11-09-2011 at 06:52 PM
    .....When I sat down to watch the UK's weekly NFL TV show. Now I had been a fan of the sport for about a year but I still didn't support any individual team. Anyway the featured game in this particular week was the Vikings at the Redskins, which had actually taken place the week before but we only got a highlights package of the games a week after. The game certainly didn't lack offence, over 1000 yards between the two teams and as the game went into overtime tied 38 - 38 I found myself cheering ...
