    keep in mind that even the players from last year still have to earn there spot on the team... thats what training camp is for. If the new punter shows during that time that he can do better, he will be our starter...

    Yep, Starters included - ie Moss, Pepp, Hovan ect,ect.
    Dan Orner has the Mental & Physical Ability of a Starter, Unlike our current Kicker, Period.



    Orner has the physical and mental ability of a starter???? What the hell are you basing this on??? His college career? I believe elling showed physical and mental ability in college as well, enough to at least be drafted. If Orner was as good as some of you guys seem to think he is, he would have at least been drafted. AGAIN, EVERY TEAM, EVEN TEAMS WITH PRO BOWL KICKERS, HAS AT LEAST 2 KICKERS GOING INTO TRAINING CAMP AND PRESEASON, SO LETS NOT READ TOO MUCH INTO THE SIGNING OF AN UNDRAFTED KICKER.

    Isn't it nice, that the only spot on our team that we are worried about right now, is the kicker. we have had so many holes on our teams in the past, that we were worried about a bunch of positions at this time of the year.

    OK smartass I think the coaches ARE the ones who
    signed Dan Orner and also had as good of chance
    going for it on forth down as making anything over
    40 yards 50-50 to be exact. He has the leg? there
    are alot of people that can kick a football 50 yards
    it just doesn't count unless it goes through the uprights. I wonder are you Elling? why would you
    defend the weakest link on the team? 50% over
    40 yards that is the worst by any Viking kicker ever.

    Here is a story from kansasviking.com/news

    Elling Favored To Keep Kicking Job - from www.KFFL.com
    Wed, 28 Apr 2004 17:30:38 -0700

    Bill Williamson, of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, reports the Minnesota Vikings signed rookie free agent PK Dan Orner, but Vikings PK Aaron Elling is the heavy favorite to keep the placekicking job. "We like Aaron a lot," Vikings coach Mike Tice said. "We didn't get a veteran, because we believe Aaron is ready to make strides."


    Weird, that sounds exactly what I have been trying to tell all you Elling haters. I never said that I liked elling, I said that the coaches must, and they clearly do. If they believe he can be good, then I will have to trust them and not some fans who don't like Elling.
