    We are in much better shape than we were. I expect after another year of rebuilding, we will be in even better shape next off-season.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    It's nice to see some of that money that was locked up in certain contracts during the Childress era come free again.

    That's one thing you can say for the NFL that you can't for the NBA or MLB. If you have a bad cap situation you can address it by unloading some contracts, whereas in those leagues you are strapped with bad contracts with no way out. If this were either of those leagues, the Vikings would be paying for the Childress era for another 5 years before we could start re-building.

    Wait a minute. I thought ole Bryzcheapski was in charge of contracts and for the most part the feeling on here was he did a dang good job of doing just that.

    Truth is, I can't recall (even though I hacked on him alot) a contract that wasn't really pretty team friendly when it came to signings since 2006.

    What I worry about is not now, but 2 to 3 years from now when the 09, 10 and 11 class starts needed deals done.

    Granted, we will have a better idea of what players in those classes will need to be retained as corps players, which will be significant, but worries me is the solution of they don't get retained.

    By that time this team should be in the window again and FA signings will have to take place to plug holes.
