Right now he will be in his 4th season before they can think about putting a top draft skill player around him.

    Throw in the notion that most Vikings rubes are buying into that you need to draft a top 5 LT before your QB can have a shot at being successful and he is pretty much screwed.
    And add the fact that the Skins also got killed with cap penalties, they might not be able to even get a FA target for him.

    No guarantees, but there is a very good chance RGIII will be a pro-bowl QB in the NFL, thats what the redskins are betting on.
    I'd gladly trade Harvin, Loadholt, Cook, and Ponder for Matt Stafford(at 5million a year).

    How can he be without a top 5 LT?

    Oh yeah I forgot, he is doomed to be mediocre. Biggest bust since Tarvaris Jackson.

    No one is saying that. No one.

    What they are saying is that Kalil would be a major help to him, and would do a lot of good to fixing a the second-worst unit on the team last year (over three sacks a game) and has LOST STARTERS since then. He's also the best player available at #3, though I wouldn't complain if they took Claiborne, and would only grumble slightly if they took Blackmon.

    Is an elite LT literally essential? No. Is Kalil a very good player who will help fill what is unquestionably a need? You bet he is.

    Now for the love of God, please stop.

    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.
