    The Chester Taylor Mystery.....



    As I think of the possible drama the Vikings face this season, it worries me most that Chester wants out of the purple uniform.
    I know that mostly every team in the league has veteran holdouts but AD and the other teamates probably question his motives.
    I believe that Chester is a huge insurance policy for AD but I also think we need him for that third down back. So I bring the question to you PPO'ers..... Do you think in your gut feeling that Chester will concede and except his role as a non-starter and hope he just wants the Superbowl ring? Or does he feel like he wants the starting job someplace else and feels no loyalty to the team who sat him? I mean if you signed that deal, would you hold out if you were him?


    I would also ask what you feel is a bigger "POTENTIAL" problem for the Vikings:



    1. Chester Taylor's hold out?


    2. Matt Birk's holdout?


    3. BMac's trial in Florida, possible season suspension?


    4. Brad Childress just not being a good coach?


    5. Jarred Allen's potential alcohol mishaps? (I hope he hires a driver!)


    PS..... Im not including the TJACK's performance as an option for biggest problem. We all know that his role counts most but Im not counting that as a problem right now

    Childress is the biggest factor/mystery.

    If he sucks, the whole team sucks.

    I'm not worried, he'll play out his contract i think and might even sign a new one who knows?
    If he sees significant playing time this season why shouldn't he stay.. I'm not worried about Birk's holdout he made it clear he will train with his personal trainer and feels comfortable with that.

    Biggest fear is McKinnie... for obvious reasons
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!

    Maybe Chester just didn't want to come to vol workouts?
    I say trade him for Micheal Bush and Micheal Huff.


    I'm drooling over M. Bush. He is Jamal Lewis in his prime but faster!

    I am not trying to be an ass...... but.....

    Taylor should have voiced that kind of a concern through his agent during the offseason when we could have gotten something for him.
    My bet is that most teams have a plan going into camp.
    If he truly wants out, he will have to wait for another team to have a starter go down and then hope the Vikes would offer him up.

    My hope is that CT is the same team player he was last season.

    NOT gonna happen...the Raiders are more than set already at RB with DMC and Little Huggy Bear...but trading him for Jason Taylor might be feasible.
    Imagine THAT!

    It probably really depends on how we do this year, if we make a push into the playoffs and TJ shows potential there would be much more reason for him to stay, nonetheless I would say a RB would be a need in next years draft
