    Key guys let go:
    * Overpaid #3 CB
    * Underutilized, poor blocking TE
    * Poor attitude, often injured WR
    * RT who lost his job to an out-of-place rookie C
    * Starting MLB who really doesn't fit the Cover/Tampa/Minny 2

    NOTHING that has been done:
    * Reasonable money for a special teams stud to bookend with Farwell and maybe start a bit
    * Reasonable money for a young, good blocking TE with promise
    * Reasonable money for a young, experienced, speedy WR who is coming off his best season as a pro

    So, pretty much, I think you can see that my answer to your question is "No."

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    No.

    Is anyone else absolutely stoked for the draft day party?

    Reasonable is always in the eye of the beholder...fact still remains that we need a #1 WR....we won't be getting one through the draft, so our very green QB will not be getting much help on the other end.
    Like I said in another thread, IF they would make some effort to sign a more veteran WR who could be a #1 for a couple of years before either TWill steps up or another drafted WR can develop into a #1 option, I won't feel very secure that our offense can be productive.
    ONE player...just ONE player with SOME history of success...that's not TOO much to ask.

    I'm pissed that its cold out.

    I'm pissed that my dog ate the cat food again.

    I'm pissed that I'm out of coffee.

    I'm pissed that after paying bills, I'm a brokeass.

    BUT. The NFL season still doesn't start for a hair under 6 months yet...

    I will give it some time before I lose sleep about this offseason. T'is, in fact, a young one...

    As I posted in another thread.



    Get real.

    This is a weak, weak free agent pool.

    The Vikings need to follow the Twins path and build through the draft and retain their studs.


    This is the path that the Patriots and Eagles have paved.
    .
    .
    .
    to consistent winning.

    If you think Zygi is worse than Red.
    .
    .
    .
    wake up!

    By the way were Randy and Daunte leading us to a Super Bowl. . . . no.

    Why, because Red wouldn't put up his money and get a defense to make that run.

    Then he left the cupboard bare and now the Vikings are reloading.

    This ownership group and coaches want to win. . . more than we fans do - believe that.

    They are doing their best and we need a little patience, things will get better.



    How the hell did "true" fans put up with the 2001-2003 seasons - those teams sucked, oh yeah, but Daunte to Randy looked pretty - even in losing.

    This is my point - build a team, team, team and wins will come.

    Excellent post Rattz and welcome to the site and I hope that you stick around awhile!


    Your post reminds me of another poster that recently left PPO.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Key guys let go:

    Re: PISSED!

    Excellent work, Rattz, doug and others.
    Let's be real, its just FA, and FA is generally not your stars this year...second and third tier.
    I crap bigger than most of these players and if the Vikings are interested in paying for big crap, they can hire me.
