    Tarvaris Jackson’s uneven season may have been the story of 2007, but the Vikings have other positions they need to look at upgrading in the offseason.

    Thanks for the article.
    It's quite obvious that the Scout.com writers read PP.O

    It should read, QB is not even close to being the no. 1 offseason concern.

    When will the hacks learn

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Re: Quarterback Not Only Offseason Concern

    I was very surprised by this one:

    The 2007 Vikings became the first team in history to ever have a running back rush for three touchdowns in a single game more than once in a season. Minnesota did it three times, with Chester Taylor also going for three on Nov. 18 against
    Did I read that correctly...the first team in (NFL) history...or Vikings history? The writer is not very clear on this point.
    ???

    I liked this quote too:

    QUOTE TO NOTE: “I am disappointed that I wasn’t able to take this team to the playoffs. All of us can go back and see the could-have, should-have, and would-have, but I guess I prefer to look at the assets and going forward the assets that we’ll end (up) adding and that will certainly be our goal as we start in to 2008.” — Coach Brad Childress, when asked if the Vikings should be expected to be a playoff team next season

    The rub is that he can want to add all the assets he wants, but if Spielmen and crew don't agree then it won't happen.

    Its really gonna come down to who is available, do they fit the scheme and does it make sense, fiscally to add that player.

    I for one am going to watch with interest the press coverage of the Chiller if a quality Vet WR, S and DE aren't added during the offseason.
    Maybe, just maybe we might see him break from party lines a bit if that doesn't happen.

    Sounds to me like the plan is to add some assets!!
    ;D
    Hopefully, we can get it done.
    Having AP on the team might help sway a guy like Kevin Curtis from last year...

    I think Jared Allen, Justin Smith, and probably Suggs too, will be franchised.
    Maybe the Ravens go into full on rebuilding mode, and let some guys go...?
    We can only hope.
    Maybe we will be looking for that RDE in the draft.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Williamson is probably in the top 10 in terms of athletes on the Vikings. We need athletes! Keep Williamson. His first year was with Tice, so he really has had only two years in the NFL so far.


    Go Vikings!

    Yes, we do need "athletes."
    However, the last time I checked, the first qualification to being a Wide Receiver is the ability to catch the ball.
    We do not need a great "athlete" playing WR who can't catch the football.
    He is the weakest link, got to go.

    No way man, I knew this guy in high school.
    Kicker... he was an athlete!
    man... you wouldn't believe it.
    I mean, he couldn't kick or anything, but he was an athlete!!!

    Wait... yeah, WR needs to be able to catch. I'm done with him...

    Wow, can't believe they didn't even mention the OL... crazy!
    :P

    Maybe, just maybe the OL is actually pretty good.
