Thinking big has worked out for Vikings

Unlike the Twin Cities' other pro sports teams, the Vikings go for big-time free agents, and they have been successful doing it.

Re: Thinking big has worked out for Vikings
I was kind of thinking about this earlier.... we haven't had any of our lower round draft picks really SURPRISE us by playing above their expectations... EJ was a second rounder but being as how he won the Butkis (sp?) award, I find it hard to consider him an overachiever....
Generally speaking we've done well in FA... Pat, Leber, AW, Sharper, JA, Hutch.
(Birk is one low rounder who outplayed his expectations)
Trust me, I'm a doctor.
