    I would love to have Clements on the vikes! He's a stud!
    Jarrett-won't be there
    Davis- Arizona won't trade their only good lineman
    Take your pick, but I like who we have
    GREAT IDEA
    or another team
    GREAT IDEA
    Can't wait
    IF you get SHaub he is more than a one year solution, Huard had one good game


    Love to except it is so much fun!
    You don't trade free agents.

    And Jarrett definitely will be there at picks 8-12, where I assume we finish.

    I also have to add: Hire a real offensive coordinator, and get our old special teams coach back.

    Re: The Vikes need to sign "Joke" in the offseason

    Some things I'd do (in no specific order):

    REPLACE BRAD JOHNSON!!! What's that, 15 picks now? He had picks on THREE CONSECUTIVE SERIES that gave their Bears amazing field positon and either directly or indirectly resulted in 16 of their points! And how many times have we punted because the guy he passes to on third down isn't even half the way to the marker? I know it has to be done sometimes, checking down because the coverage is good, but he does it ALMOST EVERY TIME!!!

    Install a passing offense (related to the above) start Tarvaris, start Bollinger, get Jarret or someone, but we NEED to do something! (make sure the receiver can catch ahemwilliamsonahem)

    Teach your team NOT to lead the league in penalties! (what is now, something like 95? who are we, the Raiders?) Seriously, Cook and Whittle had at least five false starts between them. There shouldn't be that many in an entire game.

    Get someone who can pass block (how many hurries/sacks/hits did the Bears get? Whittle and Cook could not block Ogunleye or whatever his name is. And they didn't even have Tommie Harris for the second half of the game!)

    STOP INJURING YOURSELVES!!! (greenway, tank, erasmus, etc.)

    STOP ALLOWING RETURNS FOR TOUCHDOWNS!!! FOUR IN TWO GAMES IS HORRIBLE!!!

    I'll think of some more. I KNOW there's more.
    WE CAN BUILD ON THIS!!!

    In AP I trust

    Oh yeah, there's a thing called converting on third down. Do it.

    I guarantee that Jarrett is going to be the best Wide Receiver out of this year's class. Calvin Johnson has down games a lot of the time that i've seen, even against so-so defenses. Jarrett is amazing. doesn't have the blazing speed but damn he has hands and that's exactly what we need. He should be there when we pick.

    Leonard Davis would solidify our o-line.

    Nate Clements would allow us to trade smoot and develop ced as a nickel. Perfect scenario.

    lol definitely need to bribe the refs.

    Marcus has the size to play guard... good idea. Guard is also the easiest o-line position.

    #1 priority IMO. I don't give a crap who is on our team if we're in LA.

    It will be very nice having them back next year for sure, especially erasmus. I could see us signing another end just because Udeze is NOT panning out whatsoever.

    Next year is the year for Tarvaris IMO. It would be nice to let him develop for a few more years but it looks like we're going to have to stick him in there and see how he does. I really don't want Schaub.. we would have to give up two draft picks meaning no Jarrett.


    I would love to see a move like trading Smoot and udeze/troy for another draft pick and a player. a first and a decent o-lineman maybe. At this point we need to get as many draft picks as we can just because I think Brad Childress is a good guy when it comes to the draft.

    We definitely need a new Offensive coordinator. One who can call the plays in place of Brad. Maybe someone like a college OC that's had a lot of success that can come to the NFL and call the shots (norm chow type guy).

    I wouldn't be opposed to seeing a couple more new faces at WR as well. Drew Bennett, Marcus Robinson, Rookie player, Troy, and Bethel sounds like a good corps to me.


    If we could make some of those moves I think we could be a sleeper to win the super bowl next year. It all hinges on playcalling, o-line, and Tarvaris of course but I think we could win the north.

    IMO the Vikings won't even go after Schaub. TJ is waiting in the wings ready to start.

    If they pick up Schaub what will they do, let T-Jack ride the pine for years to come?

    I don't think so.

    Look for them to do what I said during FA this year. Pick up a reputable veteran QB to fill the void between now & when T-Jack is ready.

    They should have signed one this year to back up Brad when they had the chance.

    Re: The Vikes need to sign "Joke" in the offseason

    D. Jarret>> T. Ginn>> M. Manningham>> C. Johnson

    Go first round with WR.. Sidney Rice seems kind of intriging also.. Same skool as Williamson.. Not quite so raw tho.. Not where we could pick him.. We will have too early of a pick for him

    O-line or D-line in the second round





    One Love

    They were just waiting until they could steal Jake from the Broncos!

    Ok Acumen......i had to laugh at your picture.....that is so funny.
    But thats whats great about Jake, he plays within himself.
    We have not had that in QB since Tommy Kramer.
    You're kidding, right?
    It's because Plummer doesn't play within himself that he was benched last night for Jay Cutler.
    Shanahan put in all sorts of roll-outs and bootlegs and stuff to taylor the offense to Plummer's skills, and he still couldn't make the plays he should be making.

    Signing Plummer would be a gigantic mistake.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
