Ex-Vikings burning us.....
I'm all for getting rid of Bennett and Hovan. I think Spencer Johnson can be a sufficient starter. He has really done much better than Hovan the past few games. In a year or two he could be a pretty good player. What we need to do is trade them for some linebackers, straight up experienced guys, no picks. We need guys and we need them for next year. Once our team is all healthy if we have some good LBs on our D we will be pretty solid. We have good CBs, we have a good and young D-line, we just need to get some LBs who can seek out the holes and fill them, so far NO ONE has been able to do that for us.
Man, this was, still could be, but was our year. Then we jsut got shat on by injuries. Kleiny...out, half our O-line...out, Moss...gone 5+ games, Bennett...gone most of season, Robinson...gone beginning of season, Ken Irvin (who would have MADE our defense) ...OUT, ALL our linebackers...in and out all season long
Finally, to top it all off...first we lose our best offensive weapon for 5+ weeks (Moss)...NOW we lose our best defensive player for about the same amount of time. Perhaps it is all for the best though, and heck, we might even make it far this year, anything can happen!
