    Thinking Back To Beginning of FA

    Remember when I said we should grab Travis Henry and I got slammed pretty hardcore for that? Well, not to rub it in but how would that look now?

    Even with our Oline issues, Henry could produce. Hell, he had back to back 1300 yard seasons with one of the worst O-lines in football in Buffalo.

    I know this sounds crybaby woulda coulda shoulda, but I felt it was necessary to post it!

    Travis Henry is good, but he's no Koren Robinson :???:

    He'd just be added to Tice's committee with one bad series. :bs:

    Yeah, Tice puts people in the doghouse too quickly (i.e. Mewelde Moore during the Giants game last year). It kind of ticks me off!

    Re: Thinking Back To Beginning of FA

    I posted this on another thread, but it is relevant to this one also.

    Edgerin James, Shaun Alexander and Travis Henry were all on the trading block. And the asking price was ridiculously low 2nd to a 4th round draft pick.

    How good would it be if we had anyone of these guys in purple!

    But Tice was set on Bennett, and would not look beyond him being the starter. And now we get to opening day, and we have running back by committee.


    This could cost Tice his job, if we do not have a great season our situation at running back is going to be the biggest reason.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I just don't think Tice has the patience for a running game. If they are not cutting loose on big gainers every other carry then its time to abandon the running and go back to passing.

    With the high powered offense of the Vikings over the last few years, the expectation is that you need to score every time you get the ball. Well running the ball is more about field position, controlling the clock and keeping your defense fresh.

    I would love to see more balance in their offense, I just don't see it under Tice. He says he wants it, but he's not willing to make the commitment to make it effective.

    Be patient guys, for all we know Moore or Bennett will rush for 1500 yds this year, and Henry will be a backup to Chris Brown and not get 100 carries all year.

    The guy I believe we should have really gone after was R-dub Mcquarters, he's probably only slightly better than B. Willians at DB but a damn good kick and punt returner.

    O-well hindsights always 20/20
