    :P
    Yep.. shaking in my boot at the thought..

    Seriously though.. IMO it wouldn't impact it as much as on thinks.. I agree with Marr here.. you have the pieces in place with some youth to bring along..

    If the Packers are looking to aquire Taylor it is because they doubt KGB will be ready to go and effective this year.. otherwise it doesn't fit the Packers plan to date under Thompson. I don't see him trading a pick of high value for a player in decline.

    We have some historical data here to rely on as well.

    The FO has been pretty consistent in bringing in guys that are coming of thier first contract and no giving up picks for old guys that will only give us a year or two at best.

    you also cant forget that taylor will likely only play one more season, and with udeze out, we have that extra roster spot for DE..id gladly take him for a 2nd rounder..edwards and robison will still get their share of playing time
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Trading a 2nd rounder for 1 season of ANY player is a stupid idea.

    Even if it meant a Super Bowl? I'd trade a second round pick for that.

    On the down side.. don't Allen and Taylor line up at the same spot on the Dline.. and won't that make the edges of your defense a little weaker vs the run?
    Why should the Vikes curb spending?
    IF they can afford to get him and it makes the Vikings better, then to do otherwise would be a betrayal of the fan base by the ownership.
    Red McCombs has already given Vikings fans enough betrayal to last a lifetime...my lifetime anyways.

    of course they are scared, that is all the material they ever have.

    Come on now.. there are better things to banter about with Viking lore.. From a Viking fan no less....
    :P

    #10) Dec. 28, 2003: On fourth-and-25 from the Vikings' 28, Arizona's Josh McCown hits Nate Poole for a touchdown as time expires to prevent the Vikings from advancing to the playoffs and sending the Packers in their place.

    #9) March 2, 2005: On this date, Randy Moss was traded to the Oakland Raiders. In return, getting Twill and a bust out LB in Harris in return.

    #8) Jan. 11, 1970: Super Bowl IV: After the Vikings cut the Chiefs' lead to 16-7 in the third quarter and capture momentum, Otis Taylor takes a short pass, breaks a couple of tackles and runs 46 yards for a score in a 23-7 victory.

    # 7) Jan. 13, 1974: Super Bowl VIII: Trailing 17-0 in the first half, the Vikings move 74 yards to the Miami 6. On fourth-and-1 from the 6, Oscar Reed fumbles, and the Vikings never threaten again in a 24-7 loss.

    #6) Jan. 12, 1975: Super Bowl IX: With the Vikings trailing 2-0 at halftime, Bill Brown fumbles the second-half kickoff, the Steelers recover and end up scoring what turned out to be the clinching touchdown in a 16-7 victory.

    #5) Jan. 9, 1977: Super Bowl XI: In the first quarter, the Vikings' Fred McNeill blocks a punt by Ray Guy -- the first punt Guy ever had blocked -- and the Vikings take over at the Raiders' 3-yard line. But two plays later, Brent McClanahan fumbles, the Raiders recover and drive for the first score of the game and the momentum in a 32-14 victory.

    #4) Jan. 14, 2001: NFC Championship Game: The heavily favored Vikings commit five turnovers and are outgained 518 yards to 114 and outscored 34-0 in the first half of a stunning 41-0 loss to the New York Giants.

    #3) Oct. 12, 1989: The Herschel Walker trade: The Vikings trade Issiac Holt, David Howard, Darrin Nelson, Jesse Solomon, Alex Stewart and what ends up to be three first-round picks, three second-rounds picks, a third-round pick and a sixth-round pick to Dallas. The Cowboys use the picks to select Emmitt Smith and others to help them win three Super Bowls.

    #2) Jan. 17, 1999: NFC Championship Game: With the Vikings leading 27-20, Gary Anderson misses a 37-yard field-goal attempt with 6:07 remaining against Atlanta -- his first miss of the season. The Falcons go on to score the tying touchdown and beat the Vikings 30-27 in overtime.

    #1) Dec. 28, 1975: NFC divisional playoff game: The Cowboys defeat the Vikings 17-14 on a last-second, 50-yard Hail Mary pass from Roger Staubach to Drew Pearson, who appears to push Nate Wright to the ground before making the catch and jogging into the end zone. A personal favorite of sorts... after watching Chris Carter get away with bloody murder for years..

    The lack of trophies is just an after thought that most Packer fans utilize because the list is just to long..
    ;D

    Re: Pack interested in Jason Taylor?

    Hey these two are pretty good as well.. although I don't like pickin on Nelson because he was kind of a personal favorite during those years.

    Jan. 17, 1988: NFC Championship Game: Darrin Nelson drops a pass at the goal line on fourth-and-4 from the Redskins' 6-yard-line with 52 seconds to play in a 17-10 loss to Washington.

    This one.. just because it is replayed time and time and time again.. every Steve Young highlight seems to have this embedded within the clip.
    ;D

    October 30, 1988: In one of the most memorable runs ever by an NFL quarterback, Steve Young scrambles 49 yards to score a touchdown with 1:58 left to give the 49ers a come-from-behind, 24-21 victory over Minnesota. Young, who can't find an open receiver on third down, eludes tackle attempts by at least four Vikings before stumbling the final few yards and diving into the end zone.

    Honestly, this one would be my number 1... this was one of the worst days I can ever remember:

    Nope, different sides for sure.
    Don't want him, don't need him.
