    There's nothing wrong with setting your goals high as long as you don't get disappointed if you don't make them. It's all about positive attitude.

    Would you rather see them put forth a negative Nancy attitude & say "No way am I going to achieve my dream or improve my play, so I'm not going to bother trying"?

    I just think that setting the highest goal when you have never proven anything, just makes you look foolish.
    I don't want a Vike looking foolish.
    I'm sure the cheeseheads are jumping all over that statement.

    I would be happy if he made double digits.
    A goal is usually something you have yet to accomplish...why do you have to prove something before you can say you want to be better?

    Let them jump. When Rodgers is flat on his back on the turf as the result of an Allen, Williams or Edwards sack, it will be us having the last laugh.

    IMO the Pack will try & double team Allen & K-Will & when that happens it will open up the lane for Edwards.

    If you're old enough to remember the play of the Purple People Eaters, get ready for part deux. If not, sit back & enjoy the ride. It's going to be a great season on the defensive side of the ball.

    Ryan Kibbe, of KSTP-TV, in Minnesota, reports the Minnesota Vikings moved DL Ray Edwards from right defensive end to left end after bulking up five to 10 pounds....
    So I guess Ray Edwards will be the #1 guy on the LE depht chart now. It's too sad that we lost E James and that Udeze is out for the season. They weren't great, but they would have been reliable backups.

    Re: Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    Now Udeze isn't done completely, for this year yes but if he beats his sickness he will back but I don't think he will be getting a starting position back. I believe Ray Edwards is better than Udeze and he was a 4th round pick. Edwards has a step on Udeze when it comes to quickness and he's very deticated to his body and it shows, I'm even yet to see him after this offseason I'm just going off of what he's done since drafted.

    Edwards should have a solid season, I'm hoping for double digit sacks. I have no problem with his goals, as a Head Coach you gotta love a players ethusiasm and confidence. Wether its AP or Edwards these guys love football and want to contribute in a big way. If Edwards can become a top DE in the league we will have a very good tandem at DE that will help us win games for years to come.

    If Edwards draws even a little more attention to himself by making that statement, I'll be very glad.
    As the other 3 Pro Bowlers on the line will surely be drawing alot more.

    Re: Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    I think it's great he wants to achieve that this season.
    I'm pretty sure most, if not all players want to be the best at what they do,
    good on them.

    Re: Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    Love the attitude from Ray Edwards. As long as he is putting forth the required effort during the offseason and training.

    I think some members here need to be aware of the difference between a goal and a prediction.

    Re: Ray Edwards seeks sack title

    I am all for big time goals and all that, but for some reason this reads to me as if he was probably joking around.
    I do think Edwards is in line for a big season though ... and I look forward to seeing him come back from his suspension with a vengeance.
