    fact
    None

    That's why the guy is on the radio rather than coaching or doing player personnel consulting. It doesn't matter what a receiver can do if the quarterback is on his back - especially when the offensive scheme is so unoriginal as the Vikings' offense is.

    And what good is it to be upright if you have nobody that can beat a defender one on one. He was actually a current FO executive with a paying job.

    We didn't win because Webb was under Center. We won cause the O-coord popped his head out of his ass and quit running that damn bunched set look every damn play.

    Problem is, we have to get rid of Musgrove so that he will put a few 1-1 sets out there so that you have Percy and the New WR (Blackmon) on the field for Ponder to throw to.

    I almost shit myself now when I see them continually running 2-3 sets out there and the only WR on the field is Arashomadu. I bet the defensive coordinator on the other side shits himself as well.......1 CB on Arash, the rest in the box.

    I'd take a DT about were they have us taking a G, however, I agree, it is a good draft.

    Brees, Manning and Brady. That's where I draw the line at guys that will CARRY your franchise, regardless of the rest of your talent. Even Rodgers, who is having a freakish year, has TREMENDOUS talent on that offense.

    So what do you do? Keep wasting picks on quarterbacks, hoping you'll get that once a decade guy? Or do you build talent on the entire team and stick with the guy you drafted last year, who has shown some pretty good things himself?

    This team needs a ton of help, and drafting quarterbacks year in and year out won't help us in the long run.
    Amen

    I'll bet you did shit yourself, but that's a different story!
    Musgrave has shown way too many plays that I can only describe as head scratchers, the one you mention above is just one more fine example.
    He seems to think he's going fool defenses by being unconventional.
    I think a team has to be very sound fundamentally before the trick plays work.

    As far as possibilities go, I think you have to pick a skill position player when you draft as high as the Vikings will, unless there is a player so gifted he can't be passed up.

    LOL, you crack me up. I used to get drunk during the games, now I find myself drunk enough to crap myself by kickoff......Only way I can watch that mess.

    Damn fine point. They did OK when they were running base 11 sets so the team knows what to do.

    I wonder if the lack of pads in practices this year doesn't have something to do with the execution of the "Different" plays he is trying to run.

    Agree, but I would ask a question........Do you consider a lineman as a skilled position? How about a CB?

    My feelings on it is that when you draft in the top 5 you have to draft a cat who is going to be on your team (as a starter) atleast for 2 contracts, possibly his whole career.

    I consider people who touch the ball skill position players for the most part. Those players have a higher bust potential but also a higher reward potential.
    There are also position critical players such as QB,LT,C, MLB.
    The main thing is finding someone good enough to warrant signing to a second contract like you said.
