They have to compete with the 49ers in their division for the playoffs. They went 11-5 last year. I think their additions will make them a team to contend with. They have everything in place to make a run at the SB. That is what is important not what their cap will look like 2 or three years from now. The NFL is all about winning the Super Bowl. No one cares if you came in second. We should know.

That was exactly my point. They need to win it, right now, or it was all for nothing.

And all too often the squeaky wheel does get the oil, just look at Percy Harvin. Had he jut played football he would be making a lot less this year.

With Flynn heading to Raiders the Seattle Viki...Seahawks have an opening that could be filled by ex-Bills backup and Vikings former 7th round pick
QB moves could send Thigpen Seattle’s way
According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, former Bills backup Tyler Thigpen is on the “short list” for the Seattle backup job.

Another exViking could be making a trip to the north west
Antoine Winfield expected to visit Seahawks
...cornerback Antoine Winfield is expected to meet with the Seahawks this week. Winfield has spent a lot of time in the slot in recent seasons, something he’d likely do if he wound up with the Seahawks thanks to the presence of Browner and Sherman on the outside.

I think the Sea Hawks are still pissed about Hutch and the poison pill. That's why they are signing so many ex-Vikings. LOL

Peterson said he wanted to break the record or course, but also said he was most focused on getting the win and making the playoffs.
AD also gave credit to his "team" and line for much of his success.
Of course players want money, and want to accomplish self made goals. But some players just aren't for the team, and only out for themselves. AD isn't one of those players.

Harvin wanted the Vikings to win & did everything he could on the field to help them succeed, just like AD did. That's not a "me" thing.
So what exactly is it specifically about Harvin that makes you & others believe he was an "all about me player"? The fact that he wanted a long term contract with the Vikings despite Ponder? The fact that he wanted to get paid what he was worth?
