    Hell, after all the hype Bob Sanders got following his Super Bowl Performance, Indy isnt letting Bobby go anywhere. I think I heard "Bob Sanders just brings so much more intensity and fight into The Colts Defense when he's healty"...like 10,000 times during that game.

    But I agree, Bob Sanders is nasty & I would love to have him in purple.

    Re: A few Vikings casualties?

    I started this thread in December before Marcus Robinson was cut on who should be let go.

    http://www.purplepride.org/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=150&topic=30092.0



    Which players in your opinions need to go this off season?


    Players that should go!

    Brad Johnson:
    Good luck with the rest of your life and hope you have a great retirement.

    Travis Taylor:
    He is to inconsistent and we need better receivers.

    Marcus Robinson:
    Good on the fade in the end zone, but that is about it.

    Bethel Johnson:
    Not a great receiver and he has stagnated as a returner and isn't a threat to break one or get us good field position.

    Troy Williamson:
    Had hoped that he would turn it around with a different QB throwing to him, but he doesn't have the concentration level needed to be a WR in the NFL.

    Jimmy Kleinsasser:
    To much money for somebody that is not being utilized, and he can't chew gum and walk at the same time.

    Jermaine Wiggins:
    Apparently Childress doesn't think that wiggy has what he wants for a TE and no reason to have him if we don't go to him.

    Bryant McKinnie:
    I really wish we hadn't signed him to an extension (looks like a waste of 49 million dollars), he is terrible and any speed rusher is blowing right by him!
    I would rather have signed Leonard Davis from Arizona in the off season.


    Keneche Udeze:
    0 sacks through 15 games and he hasn't been a factor in a game all season.

    Napo Harris:
    Thanks for that roughing the passer penalty that gave the Pack a 1st down in the redzone, how long have you been playing in the NFL not to know that any helmet to helmet hit on a QB is roughing the passer?
    He made up for it with causing the fumble but still was a stupid mistake and we need a better MLB!


    Ronyell Whittaker:
    Sorry you are not good enough to play in the NFL, good luck in the arena league.

    Fred Smoot:
    Good INT for a TD last night and you played your best game as a Viking yesterday, but to little to late!



    O-line coaches:
    Should be one not 2 line coaches and it shouldn't be either one of you, bring in somebody that can do something with this over priced line!




    People on the bubble that can go either way:

    Mike Rosenthal
    Artis Hicks (maybe as a backup)
    Matt Birk (probowl?
    I don't know how, didn't play like he did 3 years ago)
    D Thomas (he is a big question mark at this point)
    Ryan Longwell (not a great season, kickoffs are terrible)




    People that have 1 more year to prove they can play or Coach.

    Childress and entire coaching staff
    Billy McMullen
    Marcus Johnson
    Erasmus James
    Chris Kluwe
    Tank Williams
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Dang "Whackthepack"...we only got $12M in scratch to play with this off-season! Your talking major overhaul. Dont get me wrong as I do agree with most of these guys being released, however I think your pulling the trigger on some too early.

    A few key points:

    -Childress needs at least another year before I go from disliking him to wanting his head. Glad you agree.
    -Travis Taylor should stay on as the #3 WR.
    -Williamson is still to fresh off that first round draft pick bonus to let him go already.
    -McKinnie may not have lived up to his net worth so far...but Leonard Davis!?! Can you say "BUST"?
    -Klein no longer fits in the Offensive scheme.
    -Lets see Tank healthy for at least one year.

    Re: A few Vikings casualties?

    it won't hurt us a bit to let any of them go IMHO.
    The Vikes are headed for 6-10 or 5-11 without stellar QB play.
    All of the aforementioned a fringe players, which provide depth.
    The fact that we are debating whether we keep this group of players is indicative of where the team finished 2006.
    Upgrades are critical at TE, QB, OL (right side), MLB, and WR.
    That's ALOT of positions folks!!!

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    As a matter of fact, I do know

    The Vikes are around 23 million under the cap and getting rid of Smoot, Kleinny alone will free up around 3 million after the cap hits so we have some room to work with and everyone that is cut will bring more space to sign other players.


    Here are the team-by-team salary cap totals, according to the report in the St. Petersburg Times. (In most other reports, the Vikings are thought to about $23 million under the cap after the Williams and Henderson extensions):

    1. San Francisco $42.1M
    2. Buffalo $39.7M
    3. Arizona $36.7M
    4. Tennessee $36M
    5. Cleveland $33.3M
    6. Minnesota $32.4M
    7. (tie) Jacksonville $32M
    7. (tie) St. Louis $32M
    9. New England $30.4M
    10. Cincinnati $30.2M
    11. New Orleans $29.9M
    12. Green Bay $29.5M
    13. New York Jets $26.1M
    14. San Diego $24.6M
    15. Tampa Bay $24.2M
    16. Detroit $23.8M
    17. Chicago $23.4M
    18. Seattle $22.5M
    19. Dallas $21.5M
    20. Miami $17.8M
    21. New York Giants $15.7M
    22. Oakland $14.1M
    23. Houston $13.3M
    24. Atlanta $10M
    25. Philadelphia $12.4M
    26. Denver $7.6M
    27. Kansas City $7M
    28. Baltimore $5.7M
    29. Indianapolis $4.9M
    30. Carolina $3.4M
    31. Washington $951,000
    32. Pittsburgh $150,000

    Re: A few Vikings casualties?

    I would take $23M in cap room for this year. However I have seen numbers ranging from $12M to $31 in cap space for the Vikes.
    More accurate numbers will come out soon enough when FA opens up, I guess.
