    Way to give up solid depth behind the Williamses, for a scrub! :

    p.s. the whole reason behind this rant is because of scrambling we've done the last month or so for DT depth
    C.J Mosely was gone he couldn't beat out Spencer Johnson or Ross Kolodziej in that year and you seem to have neglected that fact when you decided to make this thread. I didn't hear his name at all when we played the Jets, just because he excelled against second or third stringers on a 3-4 defense doesn't mean he is any good.

    What if we picked up Leftwich and released Bollinger?

    And what if we picked up Shawne Merriman in a trade for E.J. Henderson! Wouldn't that be great!

    While CJ has some talent what kind of impact would he have realisitically on this team? C'mon people ... don't you have something better than b1tching to do? Seriously, CJ had already been beaten out by Spencer on that team so at best he would be fourth on our depth chart right now. No big loss no big gain ... simply that.

    Well according to some sources there has been some interest in Bollinger. But the best offer that we have gotten so far has been a golf towel, one of Michael Jakson's old glitter golves, an expired coupon for What-A-Burger, and an autographed picture of Tom Cruise from "Risky Business" in a left footed sock.
    Thanks for the sig Pack93z

    Re: The trade for bollinger

    I actually thought I was gonna read something intelligent about a actual draft that happened this weekend vice some lame out of date discussion.
    :

    Back to your question........ Do you really believe an actual NFL organization ISN'T ever gonna make any bad player personnel decisions?

    Look at this staffs (although somewhat limited) track record/body of work over the last two years as whole before we make up a pointless arguements.
    They have made a hell of alot more good moves than bad IMHO.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Yeah, that's definitely the counterpoint.
    The question(s) at the time was probably, 'who's got the bigger upside?' and/or, 'where is our more pressing need?'
    I always liked CJ, didn't like this trade from the beginning.
    Depth is an issue now, however, QB depth has been an issue from the beginning of Chilly's tenure.

    Bollinger was apparently only brought in for fringe contribution. That is exactly what we will be getting from him in the #3 spot on the depth chart.

    Re: The trade for bollinger

    It's always easy to come back a year later & criticize that we made a bad trade when the player we traded away turns out to be a solid player & the one we got in return turns out to be mediocre.

    I always questioned the trade from day one, as I did the Baskett for McMullen one.

    But you have to look at it at the time of the trade, what are needs were then & where did you have surplus to make that trade.

    It doesn't always work out.
