    Do you have a link on that? Who else is there that's better at center? If he can stay healthy he has 5+ good years left in him.

    Re: Birk will play if...........

    Birk admits that it was probably his fault for rushing back and then wants us to guarantee him money past this season, if he plays through the pain? I like the whole "play through the pain thing", for the good of the team, but then it becomes a me thing for him. If it truely is his fault he needs surgery again, from rushing back too soon, then why should we now have to guarantee money for 2006, because of what he did?

    This should be interesting to see what happens. If he can play this year and still be good after his off-season surgery, to play at least most of 2006, then I would give him the guarantee. But if he can make the situation even worse and possibly end his career, by playing this season, then it would be crazy to give him the money, and I would tell him to have the surgery.

    this shouldn't be about blame, this should be about WINNING A SUPERBOWL!!!

    jeez, quit with pointing the finger and let the organization decide if they need Birk this year. I'll tell you though, this is a smart move by Birk.

    He's under contract. If he is able to play through the pain, he should play period.

    That being said, I hope the vikes annie up and pay the big man. When healthy he is a top 4 or 5 center in this league.
