    The real reason were not in the playoffs all started in 2000.....

    During the 2000 draft i dont kno what our orgainzation was thinking i mean come on how did we pass up on Tom Brady. Look at what he is doing now and we decided to take Chris Hovan with that 25 overall pick. I mean enough of we should trade for Fitz or we should have sign Plax to replace Moss the real reason we have issues at quarterback is that we let Brady drop to the 6th round. I mean i dont understand what they were thinking

    Even if we had drafted Brady, would we have had a coach who could have implemented a system like the one NE has?

    Some players have good coaching. Others have Chilly.

    lol, you can't be serious.
    Hovan had a good career here in Minnesota, and was credited as one of the big factors in the Buccs return to great Defense a couple years back when they finished #1 in the league.

    "We let him drop to the 6th round"
    "I mean i dont understand what they were thinking"

    rofl, they were thinking was the other 31 teams were also.
    He wasn't that good of a quarterback coming straight out of the draft, or at least didn't show it.
    "We" Didnt let him drop that far, if had any signs of becoming the quarterback he is today, he would have been drafted #1 overall.
    He was picked #199 overall in the draft.
    That means that 32 teams thought 198 players were more valuable at the time.
    If you think that us not drafting him has anything to do with us not being in the playoffs, you need to maybe find a different sport lol

    Besides, who knows if Tom Brady would even be the quarterback that he is now if he had been drafted by a different team.
    Remember this interesting little fact, Tom Brady got his chance to be the starting quarterback when Drew Beldsoe went down hurt in New England.
    A few years later, Bledsoe, now the quarterback for Dallas, once again goes down injured, and a young kid by the name of Tony Romo, who was picked up as an undrafted free agent, gets his chance to start.
    I for one dont really think thats much of a coincidense


    And besides, "the reason we're having problems at quarterback" also might have something to do with us having a falling out with Culpepper, who dropped significantly in performance after the departure of Moss, then having an old Brad Johnson take the helm of the ship.
    And now a D-II quarterback leading our team with no decent back up, and no proven recievers.


    Or maybe its cuz we didn't draft Brady.

    What were we thinking passing on every good player we could have drafted ever.

    I agree...How did we let Tom Brady slip through our hands.

    Wow....spoken like a true Vikings fan....optimistic too ;D

    As many have pointed out already with great responses here your reasoning is very hard to figure out on both the Tom Brady Issue and this last sentence I highlighted. Vikings suck and will forever sounds like the lament of a bruised packer fan more than a true purple vikings supporter to me.

    Cheers!
