Well, typically I don't post much but I feel my thoughts before the season started have come true so far. No, I did not predict the injuries and surgeries nor did I predict an 0-2 start. But I did predict a loss in production because we let a certain RB go. And we didn't even try to find a replacement... sorry Young and Gayheart, you weren't it.
We are missing our safety valve. We had the money. He didn't even want to start apparently. Yep, I am talking about Chester Taylor. Not only did he provide a virtually reliable target when we needed 4 or 6 but he blocked very well and he moved well in open space to get open if Favre had no other options. You're welcome Cutler.
Our offense is missing that dynamic IMO. Last year, how wonderful was it to have so many weapons? AP, Rice, Harvin, Shancoe, Taylor. Defenses didn't even know who to cover. This year, how unbearable is it to only have AP and Shancoe providing most of the offense? Cover Shancoe and let AP run, because chances are Favre won't be able to use thier shitty remaining WR's which has turned our offense into the worst offense in league right now.
This is when Taylor would have really shown his value IMO. I blame the Vikings staff for not giving CT the money to keep him here. What exactly did we do with all that extra money anyway? Print out "Pants on the Ground" T-shirts?
With Bush now out of the Saints line-up with a broken leg, I thought this...
"Are the Saints a better team without Bush or with Bush on the team...? Answer: Better with, obviously. (I example Bush because he was like CT in the aspect that he was not an every-down back who provided a spark to the offense when needed.)
Then I thought.."Were the Vikes a better team without CT or with CT still on the team...?
At least we are playing the Lions this week. But I honestly would not be surprised if Detroit wi..... I can't say it.
