    Marr we're talking about sports writers, not real people.
    Sports writers live in a vacuum and only the limits of their imaginations can prevent them from selling more drivel to the general population.

    Naw, not sports writers.
    Look in the comment section of this article.
    Those are actual readers comments.
    Glad none of those yutz's visit PPO on a regular basis.
    ;D

    Wow NE better draft some D# bringing in DBs from Buffalo and Detriot, and now our leftovers?

    I'd rather have Mills than that fool.

    I thought he was a good player but Allen is a stud.

    Compare his stats with Robisons or Edwards and then take into account his attitude with respect to his contract issues with the team.

    No thank you.
    Send the head case someplace else.

    I didn't put any comments in that article, but maybe you better move me to the 'yutz' category on your spreadsheet.
    I like Darrion Scott as a player and would have easily seen him starting on the left side for us if we did bring him back.

    He's a good player.
    In 2005 and 2006 when he was getting playing time, he managed 104 tackles and 9.5 sacks.
    That's not pro-bowl level play, but it's pretty good.
    I think I've said before on here that I like him better as a player than Antwon Odom, who signed a new contract worth $6 million/year (compare stats: Scott, Odom).

    Maybe the team wasn't happy with his little run in with the law and the whole "don't you know who I am?" thing.
    Maybe Scott wasn't willing to come back to Minnesota no matter what the offer because he wasn't given the playing time last year that he felt he deserves.

    But if he had been willing to come back, who would start over him on the left side?
    Wyms?
    Mitchell?
    Face it, no one else on our roster has the size, ability, or production at the LDE spot that Scott would have had.
    If Allen comes here, I can see either him or Edwards taking over that spot and being successful.
    But until that happens, Scott would be an upgrade.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]
