Who was it at the time saying we overpaid while everyone was calling us the Mid-West Patriots....oh that's right it was me. The majority of media guys are saying we overpaid....in fact everyone except people on this board seems to think we paid too much. I'm glad everyone is so wrong and you guys are so right. That kind of money should be given out for production AND potential.

With 20 million guaranteed to Griffen, 13 million up front, and most of it in the first few years, we can either cut him in the next couple of years if he doesn't play up to par, or he is going to want a new deal. I don't mind this move at all, Griffen has a lot of talent and it will be interesting to see what he does being a full time player now.

The only reason any free agent would want to come to the Vikings is $$$. There is little else attractive about the Vikings for players. Rarely championship contenders. Cold place to live. Cold place to play for the next two years. Average to below average facilities at Winter park. A front office and coaching staff without a track record of success. And a team without a franchise quarterback.
Over pay in free agency ? What a huge surprise!
free agency ...players always get over paid .some production goes down way down ...some players dont play ex : injury.....some player dont earn a starting job... flynn comes to mind...some good winfield. allen, pat w....if a de has to log 10 sacks to be good well griffin can get that number ...

About Griffen, however... you are wrong. You've had a somewhat sophomoric understanding of the game since joining a few years back, and I'm glad to see that continues. Usually good for a chuckle or two. Thanks!Disclaimer: I'm an idiot.

And to say Michael Johnson was more productive... well, he had 838 snaps.
Michael Bennett had 3 more sacks with about 100 less snaps, so that dude is good. No excuses there.Disclaimer: I'm an idiot.

You must love the taste of foot... you keep putting it in your mouth.
