    The perfect draft

    I’ve had enough writing about Jay Cutler. It’s time to move on to other subjects. And as this is going to be my longest post in a while, I hope I can hold your interest.

    First, I’ll admit I got the idea for this post from a wonderful article written by Joe Posnanski about the Kansas City Royals disastrous 1999 draft. I understand the idea has since been copied by a number of writers – some of whom haven’t even bothered to acknowledge in print that they got the idea from Posnanski. Well, that won’t be happening here. Joe Posnanski – Grant’s Tomb thanks you for this brilliant idea it’s about to borrow.

    ......snip.......

    Comments: The Vikings had the right idea in the first round, they really did. They drafted a wide receiver and a pass rusher. But they got the order wrong. They should’ve went after a pass rusher with the seventh overall pick and a wide receiver with the 18th overall pick.
    I know you guys are getting bored with me bringing it up all the time, however, this article really does a better/indepth look at who was available throughout that whole draft......

    Long story short, drafting like we did will continue to killed a team.
    Thank the Good Lord for our new owner and the emphasis he and our FO pukes put on getting the right guys.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I can never tell until after im done reading the article

    I would probably copy/paste what ya want from the article.. Most likely a paragraph or so and then leave ur comments on it afterwards

    Nice article by the way.. I like to see what could have been!

    Re: The perfect draft

    Nice article, and a good read, but I'm sure you could go through every draft and create a "perfect" one...Hindsight is 20/20 as they say.

    I totally thought that Tice would go with Merrimen.
    We needed pass rush and the guy was from his alma mater.
    My other option would have been Mike Williams, but that didn't work out either.
    Who'd a thunk that 4 years later Roddy White would suddenly be a top WR?

    Really enjoyed the read Marr, but it is very easy to sit here now and look back and say we should have done this, should have done that.
    I didn't want Williamson.
    I wanted either Merriman or Mike Williams.
    Merriman was my first option with Williams my second.
    Anyways, we are where we are and I hope that we can push ourselves to a Super Bowl appearance this year!


    Skol!

    No problem.


    Typically the way Singer does it is he puts the stuff out of the article above the link and his comment (if he has any, under that.

    I will make a second post from now on to alleviate any confusion.....

    Course, if people would read the article they would know who's comments are who's...... ;D ;D ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: The perfect draft

    Singer is bomb at posting articles.. You are doing a fine job filling in

    Of course you gotta read the articles to figure it out.. but it's nice to know what you think and what's yours BEFORE reading a long article like this and trying to figure out what you said again haha

    But thanks for all the work you've put in lately
