    Exactly.

    Since Childress: We:
    lost Culpepper/BJ, got TJ
    Lost Sharper, got Tyrell and Madieu
    Lost Moss, got nobody
    Lost Moss again, actually lost a pick in the process
    Lost Taylor, got Gerhart
    Lost Mewelde Moore, got Albert Young
    Lost Richardson, got Tapeh then Tahi
    those are the main guys, there were other vets we let go for really no reason, like Marcus Robinson, Brian Williams, etc.

    I wouldn't want any of those guys on the team, except maybe Richardson, and maybe Mewelde. And aren't you one of the guys that says running backs are a dime a dozen? Could be wrong about that.

    Yeah, I am. We got guys like Moore, Onterrio Smith, etc. Decent backs that played well for us when given a chance in the late round, and we reached on a guy like Gerhart.

    AY isn't the 3rd down type though. he's not a big pass catcher, he's not that shifty to make guys miss. That's why I do like the signing of Lorenzo Booker, he looks to be like that kind of guy.

    Haven't you heard, his absence is the reason we suck this year.
    he at least has the speed to elude a defensive tackle.

    hell, Dan Connoly, G for the pats showed about the kind of speed we see from Gerhart on that kick return.
    He didn't elude any last night.
    Bears over paid for Taylor. The Vikings are much better off with Gerhart.
    Be nice to him JMC, unlike you and me, he seems to lock onto a player and dislikes him for no apparent reason. :laugh:
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
