    Evaluating the Vikings roster of 2009

    Simply put: I'm totally bored (I work at the operation center in one of the largest garrison in the Norwegian Army and it can get VERY boring sometimes) so this is what I came up with...

    This is how I personally hope the depth chart will look like when the 2009 season begins:

    Nicely done - looks fair to me.
    But what happened to your purple shades?

    Re: Evaluating the Vikings roster of 2009

    You forgot Brett Favre

    And you really think Bobby Wade is going to get cut?!

    and what about Asher Allen?

    Well... he's not on the roster... yet.
    I now that alot of the guys on here like Bobby Wade, and I think he has done a decent job, but he has been slowed down by injury and ain't getting any faster. I think it's time that we gives the young guys with greater potential a shot.
    Asher Allen. I totally forgot about him. He should definitely be on the roster. I'll change that.

    Thanks for the tip!

    yes, but the likelihood of cutting Wade is extremely low.
    He's been reliable for us so far, moreso than Allison and Rice have.
    to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if Allison is a late cut.
    No way Wade goes, but its your roster.

    Re: Evaluating the Vikings roster of 2009


    Great work Hey, I agree that B. Wade is on the bubble, so is A. Allison. I think as camp goes on and other teams start making tough decisions we may grab another vet WR off waivers, and it wouldn't surprise me if we let loose
    BW, and/or AA, before it's all said and done. Many possible trade scenerio's could rise if we sign Farve. Do we let Booty go, trying to sneak him to the practice squad? Do we try and trade TJ, or Sage, and keep JDB?

    I changed my mind.

    We absolutely won't cut Wade unless we sign Harrison.

    Re: Evaluating the Vikings roster of 2009

    Only thing I want to point out (other than Wade) is McCauley can't play the slot... He's got some serious learning to do before the end of the preseason, if he's going to make the team that is.
