    Purple Floyd, I agree with you. I've believe that the offensive play calling is not consistent. They make some plays look so easy and then turn around and call a series of plays that go nowhere.

    The point is, the Vikings have been to the redzone a lot of times & coming away with only FG's much more often than we should. We wouldn't have a winning record either if it weren't for ST TD's.

    We need to get better at coming away with more TD's if we want to win games.
    On of the stat lines I was looking at from that site that might show something a bit more glaring is the offensive td's for home and away game's was 2.6 to 1.0, after this game against the Cards there were 2 tds from the offense but I'm growing a bit more concerned with the passing game and thing the trip to Seattle in November could be a big step back due to crowd noise and their strong secondary.

    The Vikings should have locked up Harvin over the last offseason. To delay will cost the team big money and a lot of cap space. I expect Harvin's agent to play hardball, and the Vikings will likely have to use the franchise tag on him.

    i'm still hoping that this is to isolate how much cap space, Rob has to work with to get Harvin over the offseaon.. keeping in mind we don't need to load the boat for draftee's. and still ahve a bit of wiggle room for our WR's.. of which we neeed to FA..

    I doubt it get's that far. The Vikings have a lot of leverage, but will likely be eager to give Harvin a fat incentive laden contract. Harvin doesn't want to play next year or the year after on 1 year deals.
    That said I would probably let this season play out, make Harvin earn it for 16 games, then pay him early in the offseason with a near record contract.

    I don't think they have leverage at all. Outside of slapping the franchise tag on him, they have nothing. A franchise tag means very little these days.

    Whether they're tagged or have a contract, if a good player wants out, he'll demand to be traded & will typically get what he wants anyway. A team has more leverage if the player isn't in demand or if there's a good chance they'll be Super Bowl contenders.
