    Of the projected Viking starters, Who is the weakest link to the team?

    First off Im sorry about the negative Post.
    I was just thinking that our starters compared to last year prior to the season we have eliminated alot of bad players.
    I asked this same question last year and I recieved many names like TWill, TJack, Cook, Erasamus James and other odd picks(I got slammed for listing Udeze). Is there anyone you feel is overrated or just plain sucks? I value all of your opinions and want to learn from the brighter PPOers their thoughts about the starting 22 on offense and defense. Gosh we look a lot better this year!

    My opinion is TE Shiancoe.
    I feel he is the most underachieveing player at his postion.
    I also feel next year we may make a move to get an elite TE.

    I really see a great looking roster for this upcoming season. We are going to have to let go some very good football players, most if not all of the released guys will be picked up by other teams.

    That said, the only glaring weakness we have is back-up at LT. If Bryant gets a suspension we will be scrambling to protect T-Jacks blind side, and once again will have to keep a TE in to help. I'm hoping we open the playbook more this year, but having to keep extra blockers out of pass route's is not the best scenario. Personnely I think Shiancoe is gonna have a break-out season if he can run some pass route's instead of blocking all the time.

    Last year, I felt Sharper was on the top 5 on that list and many people agreed and disagreed with me.
    It seems many people do believe that he is overrated, afterall.
    Do you think that the rookie(Johnson) could take his starting spot at some point this season?

    I highly doubt Sharper will get benched this year.
    True, he may not be as good as he was, but he's still one of the top safeties in the leage.
    as for weakest link, that could be tough.
    If TJ doesn't make significant improvements, then i would say TJ.
    If he does pick up his game, then I think weakest link would fall with Griffin.
    That guy can't even stay on top of his own shadow, nevermind an NFL reciever.

    I have no idea since I've never seen Johnson play one second of football.

    I just don't like Sharper's play, espcially for someone that the rest of the league thinks is a super stud.

    Did you take a look at Griffs stats at the end of the season?
    Might be an eye opener.


    I suppose though if you are trying to compare him to a shut down CB instead of a kid who is in a Cover 2 scheme he would be found lacking a bit.
    I don't though.
    He is well suited for the scheme we run.

    Either Cook or Tarvaris because their lack of experience at 2 difficult positions will show this season...


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
