    Robert Smith's Book!

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=1839937

    Here is a link that talks about Robert Smith's autobiography that will come out next week. It talks about why he left football, and other things that are going through his mind. What do you all think?

    Robert Smith's Book!

    I thought he was headed to Medical School? Whatever happened to that?

    It's too bad he retired so young. It makes you wonder if he isn't having second thoughts. He and Bennett are so similar that the Vikings shouldn't notice a difference in talent.

    Robert Smith's Book!

    Yeah, Robert was one of my favorite players too. He was the smoothest runner that I had seen in a while. It didn't even look like he was trying and he would burn by everybody, kinda like a certain reciever that we have now. It's too bad that he gave it up but from the exerps that I have seen from his book it didn't look like he was having fun with it anymore. I think that we have the same kind of talent in Bennett now though. Good thing that he was a Wisconsin boy, we shouldn't have to worry about him wanting to be a doctor.

    Robert Smith's Book!

    He was one of my favorites too. Kinda shocked me when he left but I've gotten over it. I think that playoff loss to Atlanta had a long lasting negative effect on several of those Viking players which I think has partly to do with his departure. Oh well, it's not like we have a running back dillema now.
