    Not sure about you, but a loss with a bad record still hurts as bad as a loss with a good record.

    If money drives you then get lost as far asI'm concerned, we need players who leave it on the field week in week out a la Ray Lewis, AP.
    Not a big fan of Ray Lewis. I think he should be in jail for murder, or atleast conspiracy, however........

    Ray gets paid. I wonder what he would be like if he was getting lowballed by the organization come contrat time.

    What will your opinion be of AD if he elects to leave for bigger money?

    The draft will be a very challenging situation for us next year, will we go for a QB? who knows?
    Agree. I think it will be the most interesting draft from a Vikings organization standpoint than we've seen since we had 2 first rounders in 2007.
    Haynesworth got paid....and played his ass off.



    ...oh.....



    ...wait.....




    ...no....


    I think you are making an invalid assumption by lumping most players into the "Play for pay" category.

    While there is some degree of protecting that goes on, most players also realize that if they play that way it will be noticed. That, in turn, will DECREASE their free agent value as OTHER teams will not pay top dollar for a guy who phones it in.

    Every guy who failed to perform this season saw his FA stock DROP. Meanwhile, guys who played their asses off (Greenway and Peterson) saw their stock RISE.

    And that's what you're not taking into account. There are too many guys like Jared Allen, Antoine Winfield, or Pat Williams who would CALL THEM OUT.

    But that didn't happen.

    That tells me that guys are not sandbagging...they're just getting out played.

    Especially McKinnie.

    If they get the rookie salary cap it may not be so bad.
