    Yep good info mdgensa, after the Colts won I had to go look up the tie-breakers too and came up with the same numbers. In 1986 the Colts started 0-13 and won their final 3 games, so here's hoping history repeats itself lol. Yates has come back down to earth and the Jags are the Jags so it's not completely unlikely that they'll win 1 or both.

    The question still remains though, do we even take Luck with the #1 pick or do we stick to needs? Hard to pass up on a guy projected to be the next Manning.

    Whoever has the No. 1 pick ... whether it is us, the Rams or the Colts (all three which seem all right at QB) HAS to take Andrew Luck with the pick and trade him to the best offer. He is that good and that desired.
    Hell, some are saying he may fetch TWO first round picks and a SECOND rounder. That would be a good deal.

    With that question I think you mean draft and keep Luck or draft and trade him,you just cant pass on him.....Pretty tough call imho

    If we get the first pick we HAVE to trade it right away. We should be working out Luck, Kalil, Blackmon, and Claiborne mostly then if we think Luck is completely sure fire I say we draft Luck and trade Ponder, but I'd prefer to trade him as the value for that pick is around 3 1st rounders and 2 2nd rounders according to some draft experts. We need so much flipping help that I'd prefer to roll with Ponder and see if we could draft Kalil or Blackmon with one of the picks we acquire and trade back up higher in the 1st round to get a CB or S.
    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.

    I agree there is no way one player like luck can turn this team around we need many positions and i'd like to see ponder play while he isn't being pressured by 4 d-line at once every play

    We could continue to have a "worse" schedule though if the Bears continue to slide and the Texans win out, that would shift things really close ... of course for the Bears to slide we would have to beat them, and that would throw this all out of whack.
    It is possible we can make up that six games difference, but not that likely. So, unless the Colts WIN out, the Vikes appear out of the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.
    Obviously, if the Texans win out, the Colts pick first since they play each other this week.

    Actually ... the Texans could win out and the Colts and Vikings could still end up tied. But thanks.

    True but the odds are quite slim because we play the Bears like you mentioned.
