    Trading for Ricky would be stupid. He will only play long enough to pay off the Dolphins signing bonus, and to stock pile enough mary jane for him to live in a jungle.

    We gotta quit waiting til Monday to fix things and get them corrected in the game, common coaches, lets flow with the changes and make corrections in realtime, as the game is being played. They worked on it this week. Lets see how it pans out. Maybe the running game gets a little spark this week with Bennett getting 12-16 touches, Moe gets 8-10 touches, and we work Memo and Fason in the game for a total of atleast 28 rushing attempts. We need sustained drives to help keep that D fresh, and sticking to the run is a good way to start.

    Re: Unsupported Gossip

    Im not against this if bye the time we're heading into our bye week, we havnt gotten the run game off the ground. Go ahead and hate on me for saying this, but I'll take him. As long as he dosnt come at a crazy price or draft pic. But lets hope our backs can start to get it done.

    Re: Unsupported Gossip

    even if we aren't getting any yards on the ground, we can't just stop running and become one dimensional. put another RB in there, but you can't abandon the run like we did last week, it does two negatives to our team. first it makes us one dimensioanl, so all the D-line has to do is attack the QB and put everybody else in coverage. the 2nd thing it does is unless you complete all your passes, you are practical handing them the T.O.P and then that wears out our defense. i think Memo should get the start, he's more of a power runner and can knock defenders back so he can pick up some yards if the o-line doesn't produce a hole. M. Bennet is still a threat with his homerun speed, but you got to give a huge hole in order for him to get past the line of scrimmage. we need to attack on offense, use our huge o-linemen and move the D-line back. we don't have moss anymore, which i'm glad, but since he's gone we don't have a homerun hitter, we need to pick up first downs, wear down the D and then try and hit a homerun. if we totally abandon the run again this coming game like we did against the bucs, it'll be a very long game for the vikings i have a feeling.

    Thanks Josdin

    Wouldn't surprise me. Tice needs to win NOW or he's out of a job. So if a deal for Williams is an option I see the Vikings going for it.

    I would not have a problem with Ricky, but I do think we need to address OL run-blocking issues more than the actual RB.

    Re: Unsupported Gossip

    Well right now this is a totaally completey unsupported rumor, it was posted on the cbs forum thing. and The person who posted it never followed up with a link to this info. But If bye our bye week we cant run the ball, what the hell, the guy used to be sick, give em a shot.

    Re: Unsupported Gossip

    yah it'd very similar to the pick up K-Rob. we gave him a shot, why not Williams. we all know if he really wants to Williams can defintely be a workhorse in the running game 20-30 times a game. only problem i see with him, same problem i had with moss, i question his heart. hopefully we won't have to depend on him to get our running game going though.

    Thanks Josdin
