    Local star power dimming

    [size=13pt]Local star power dimming[/size]

    With Moss and Culpepper traded and Garnett on the trading block, the Twins have the most big names in the Twin Cities

    The Twin Cities are becoming a superstar wasteland....

    I wouldn't mind a blue collar team all for one and one for all. Young stars are about to emerge, and I really believe the Vikings have many. So lets go into this season as a sleeper, under the radar and we shall see the players start to shine. I'm not gonna name name's, but we have some serious talent ready to emerge on both side's of the ball. You'll be clamouring for their jersey's real soon. I bet we have atleast 4-5 pro-bowl guys this year.

    Any player can emerge from the ashes.
    I can't wait for the season to start, if I keep reading articles like this I will have 0 brain cells left...if that happens I'm screwed, there's no coming back.
    0 X anything leaves me at 0.
    Just ban me to pp.o hell when that happens.

    He won't have to. With 0 brain cells, you'll think your already there.

    You should have thought of that yourself. You must be getting dangerously low.

    It's really funny...I just finished watching "Invincible" on DVD. It's the story of a 30 year old bartender who became a Philadelphia Eagle special teams play for three years and led became a team leader with the passion he brought to the game. First year coach Dick Vermeil lost his first 6 games before the passion finally caught on that Vince Papale bought into and brought it to the rest of the team.
    The Eagles were rebuilt built from the ground up and in five years they were Super Bowl champs.
    I could see a lot of the Vikings in this film. They just need to catch the passion of the city and the fans and I think they will go a long way. The need the "never-say-die" attitude and that can bring us all a lot of joy.

    In what universe did the Eagles win the Super Bowl?

    I love KG, but losing him isn't the end of the world. Besides, Brewer is going to be special.

    2 words: Adrian Peterson

    there was an article that said he is the next "freak" out of college, joining the team of the original "super freak" (randy moss), and has been considering the best thing since randy to be drafted

    (if he can live up to his hype anyway lol, i'm not holding that big of expectations)

    this could be different a couple years from now if peterson/jackson turn into stars..its just happens that the moss/culpepper/garnett things happened so close together..one day foye, mccants, liriano (hes gonna come back and dominate next year, book it), peterson, jackson will be household names
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.
