    Give Me 6 and 10

    Might as well start Jackson.
    I'd rather they lose anyway to get better draft choices.
    Time to start thinking about 2007.

    I've been a fan long enough and seen enough to know that the Vikings need the best talent available at skill positions in the draft.
    And the way to get that is to lose.

    IF the Vikings were to finish 6-10, they could POSSIBLY get all the way up to the #3 draft slot, if the Cardinals, Browns and Texans both win their last two games to get to 6-10.

    But I don't think that's likely.
    I think it's much more likely that 6-10 puts you in the 6-9 range, which is still a top-10 pick.


    8-8, in the logjam which is the middle of the NFL, could be as low as 12 or as high as 18.

    For the future of my franchise, if they are going to miss the playoffs and be bad, I'd rather they bottom out THIS YEAR at 6-10 and be able to make picks from a favorable top-10 position in every round.

    I'll take 8-8

    I'm not going to wish a loss on my favorite team so they can draft a couple spots higher and could possibly draft a bust.

    If we'll be in a good draft position after the season is over, I'll be happy that we can start looking at the best athleats in the draft.

    But untill then I hope we win everygame.

    Maybe it's easier to watch this mess and still be optimistic on TV.

    In person, it's just frigging brutal right now.

    You can say that's why. Or maybe I'm just a naïve fan.

    I'm still down from yesterday.
    It started so awesome and then was just painful and boring and sapping until TJack came in, which provided a brief lift but disappointment in the end.

    It's obvious that the Vikings are lacking in skill at certain positions.
    There are two ways to fix that (well - 3 - but trades are so rare in the NFL) - the draft and free agency.
    I want the best position in the draft possible if they are going to be bad.

    I can see where your coming from. And believe me I want a good draft position in April as well.

    I just can't get myself to root for a loss. I'm not built that way. So I just try not thinking to much about the draft before the season is over.

    I just want us to WIN no matter what

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I'm internally torn.
    There's no way in heck that I'm going to root for the Vikings to lose to the Packers on Thursday - but if they do lose, I'm not going to be all that upset.
