    This is an open letter to Zigi Wilf,Brad Childress,Rick Spielman,Scott Studwell, and all the Vikings scouts.
    I have been a supporter of the current Vikings plan to build a team primarily through the draft.
    I am impressed with the results of the 2007 draft.Great job.
    But I'm left with a huge nagging question I feel needs answered.

    Last year Childress said " it all starts upfront."

    But last year it appeared to , all END up front.The pass protection was atrocious.Especially on the right side of the line.

    Not upgrading the right side of the offensive line marginalizes the potent offensive aquisitions you aquired in this draft.

    Vikingsw fans talk about the good old days when they had Chris Carter, Randy Moss, Reed, and Culpepper.
    What they rarely acknowledge is the state of the offensive line. The Vikings had the best offensive line in the league at that time.
    They had to be.
    Culpepper took 4 to 6 seconds to release the ball much of the time.

    We now have inexperienced marginal quarterbacks. They need that protection.
    Last year they were lucky to have have 3 seconds.

    Receivers can't consistantly get open in 3 seconds. And quarterbacks can't make their reads and release in 3 seconds.

    Brad Johnson didn't just suddenly get old overnight!
    He had little to no protection.

    So, as a fan, I like the off season approach in every other area.

    But the question remains.

    How do you win with the right side of the offensive line you have?


    Why not maximize the potential of your offensive draft picks
    Dear Jargomcfargo,

    Thank you for your letter, I appreciate your concerns regarding the team.
    Please understand that we are doing our best and we have every intention of putting a winning team on the field.


    Thank you for your support.

    Sincerely,

    Brad Childress

    I agree with him 100% & have been saying it for weeks. We need solid proven players on the front line, not marginal players, players put in a starting role learning a new position or another teams castaways. They moved Johnson to right tackle because he was baten at guard. If they move Johnson back to guard & start Cook at tackle, who backs up Cook? There is not another tackle on the roster. Nor is there one to back up McKinnie if he happens to go down.

    Unless quality guards & tackles are a dime a dozen for a UDFA, they should have at least addressed it later in the draft. I believe if another team has a quality guard or tackle, they are going to hang on to them rather than simply cut them to get to the 53 man roster. Unless of course, that team is deep in depth with quality players at those positions.
    I believe the Vikings will look to address this concern after the next round of veteran cuts in June.

    That bastard said he was going to document that with photos.
    I still can't believe he was happy after they gave him a fruit basket.....actually, it was even worse.
    They gave him a fruit bouquet....even more of an in your face apology.

    If it was discussed in the yell, what was the story?

    I think it was mostly in the yell.
    He was being harassed by a bill collection agency looking for someone that didn't live at his number.
    He went after them and they gave him a fruit bouquet and he was happy with it.
    Since that day he wears a pink tutu.

    As long as it isn't two oranges and a banana like Del got! lol!
