    The pick Chicago got in round 3 was probably for us signing Berrian and I'd assume one of the Bengals six or pair of seven rounders was for us signing Madieu.
    You are always a bright light amidst the darkness my friend.

    I am thinking about starting a whole new spreadsheet just for cats like you.


    Excellent post. ;D
    A 'shining beacon of light' column! Looks like the 'ability to interpret offensive line-play intricacies' (ATIOLPI) column is now playing second fiddle.

    Vikings receive no compensatory picks in the 2009 draft

    http://www.wrn.com/gestalt/go.cfm?objectid=3696ECE3-5056-B82A-370DA537D0F642F7

    The Chicago Bears extra 3rd round pick is 99th overall.
    They also get two seventh round picks.
    The Detroit Lions get one 7th round pick and the Minnesota Vikings, like the Packers, were shut out.
    Please remember that this is based upon 2008 free agents lost and gained.
    The pickup of Berrian was more than enough to compensate for the loss of people like Tony Richardson.

    isnt there another thread on this?
    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    Maybe that's why the Vikings haven't made any significant signings this year. They want extra picks so they have ammo to trade up for a QB next year.

    WTF
    As others have noted, this is based upon 2008 Free Agency.

    The Patriots TRADED Cassell and Vrabel, so that will have no bearing on the 2010 compensatory picks.

    Although that doesn't specifically mention the Vikings....however, mods should please merge these two if they feel it is necessary.

    Compensatory picks cannot be traded.
