    We are definantly in a good position as far as the running game goes, but as stated in the article, "will the addition of Bernard Berian relieve the stacked boxes."

    Nice read...not too much on other teams in the NFCN though.

    Didn't realize Mewelde averaged over 8 yards per carry on 24 attempts.
    Also didn't realize how close Chester's average yardage was compared to AD.
    Solid backup to say the very least...just lacks the explosive TD threat.

    Also goes to show you how effective our line is at run blocking.
    All of our RBs did a fantastic job when called upon.

    "The Vikings don’t have a need to draft a running back in the draft. However, if Matt Ryan falls in their laps when its time for them to draft in round one the have to take him to solidify the position."

    Why the hell would we draft a RB in the first round. Is this guy crazy?

    Matt Ryan is a QB... I think that's the position he's talking about solidifying.

    This really isn't an NFCN story... just a Vikings story.

    It says "don't have a need" for a RB in the draft.

    The QB thing is a ? that the coaching staff will have to determine, based on TJs improvement and upside.

    It is only part 6 of 32, it is a tease, you have to read them all.
    It is like a bad mini series on ABC.
