    Doug Brien?

    Anybody hear anything about the Vikes being interested in Doug Brien?!? It was reported in today's NY Post that if the Jets hadn't taken Nugent with their pick, the Vikings would have. And now that the Jets have released Brien...the Vikings are interested in him. Tell me it ain't so...what are the locals reporting? :roll:

    well, what do you guys suggest doing if we dont get him? if you have a look at Briens stats you will find he's had two good seasons, one really bad game, he made a 53 yarder last season and had good percentages. i know he choked on the big stage but well, do you think elling or mort would have made those kicks? he's a decent kicker, maybe not a superstar but i dont see we have any other option thats better.

    I would hate to see Doug back with the Vikes, it still makes me sick thinking about his first stint with us.

    Indy probably will release Vanderjet and I would rather give him a tryout than Doug.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Hey, after we sign Brien maybe we can resign Eddie Johnson while we're at it. He just had a few bad punts for us.

    The truth is...right now every kicker that is on the market, that will be on the market or is rumored to be on the market soon are all said to somehow gonna be landing in Minnesota next season.

    Let's all just hope Tice and Tillman have learned some lessons from their bad choices at both kicking positions over the last few seasons.

    Truthfully, I would rather have Nichols perform great in camp and win the job or even Cortez or Elling win the job over Brien. He had his chance here and failed.

    My guess is Edinger will be kicking for us next season if da bears release him as predicted...
    Even babies know the difference.
