    Translating RickSpeak into English

    lol. Great article over at the Norseman...

    Vikings Draft 2013: It's Time For RickSpeak - Daily Norseman


    Rick Says: And to be honest with you (Ed note: LOLWUT), where we're picking at 23 and 25, we're looking at all our needs, from the whole defensive side of the ball to needs on the offensive side of the ball, trying to distinguish what makes this potential receiver better than this corner, better than this linebacker, better than this defensive end, better than this defensive tackle.

    What that means: None of our scouts agree on anyone, and that means no matter who we draft, a sizeable portion of our fanbase is going to be disappointed and call for my head on a platter. If we stay where we are many of you will IMMEDIATELY draw comparisons to 2005. But hey...new uniforms WOOO!

    LOL....I love this time of year.....

    On a side note, "Rick Speak" doesn't hold a candle to "Denny Speak".

    I know. Just look at how all of a sudden fans changed their opinion on T'eo & started liking him once talks of Spielman drafting him surfaced.

    How about Chilly Speak? I can feel the stream of consciousness just thinking about it.

    Not this one. Although in watching the NFLN over the past few years they seem to lock onto one player for us and push that player relentlessly and this year it is Teo so I suspect we are going to see him in Purple next year.

    I never quit liking him cause I don't follow college ball. I do, however, think he will workout for us if drafted but I'd rather have Minter.

    In the end, most casual fans don't like him because of one game. The more astute fan will have looked at all the options in this draft and quickly find out that the same team that embarrassed the whole ND defense (not just Teo) did the same to those prospects (and their whole defense) as well.

    If they wouldn't have let Jasper go, we could settle on a nice Warpig and WR in the first. Instead we are going to get Teo and either a Warpig or a WR........

    Whats even funnier in all of this, if they would have kept Jasper and just inserted a Warpig in front of him Jaspers play would have been that much better.

    I am sure they will fix everything in the draft and we will be set.
