    No thanks on Dez Bryant, he is overrated, I rather have another draft pick but Adrian is not getting traded so it is moot

    It will not be know until the team turns around. That could be in one season, or if we go by Childress' standards, it could be three or four years down the road with all of our eggs in one basket.

    The Vikings, with Peterson, have many good players. They need a few more blue chips, some depth, less injuries, and a lot better coaching.

    If Zimmer comes in, and the first thing that happens is he trades the fan favourite, franchise RB and one of the greatest players of all time, he'll be run out of town with pitchforks and torches.

    Unless he can make a Walker type deal, and I do not expect a team to give up two or three number ones for Peterson.

    The only team stupid enough to give up that much is the Vikings. Unfortunately we can't trade with ourselves.

    Nobody is giving up two firsts for AP. A guy pushing 30, with an already torn up knee, facing yet another offseason surgery (3 in a row now), who has a history of being banged up all while having a $100+ million contract is not going to get a whole lot in return.

    He's worth FAR more to us as a player than what his market value is.

    Or a Harvin type deal.

    Spielman, not Zimmer would be making that trade. Fans are pointing to the Walker & Moss trade as to why we shouldn't trade AD, but must have forgotten most recently they were bragging about the Harvin trade. Don't they trust Spielman making a good trade again? After all, look what he did with that trade & the past 2 drafts.

    Agreed.

    You are making a stronger case for dumping him than keeping him, even if we get little in return.


    He's worth FAR more to us as a player than what his market value is.
    Read your paragraph above and then reconsider his real(not his perceived) value.

    I realize that, but there's no way he puts Zimmer in that kind of position. While the more knowledgable fans should know it's Spielman's call, ultimately, the state of minnesota will riot if we bring in a new HC andi t's percieved he trades away the best player in our history.

    The Harvin trade was a great trade. Had we traded AP for that value, I wouldn't be saying that. Patterson is not much of a dropoff from Harvin, with higher potential, plus Harvin was a headcase who can't stay healthy. IMO what we got for Harvin is the max we'd get for AP
