    Vikes are two moves away from a powerhouse offense

    http://www.examiner.com/x-1483-Minnesota-Vikings-Examiner~y2009m1d14-The-Vikes-are-two-moves-away-from-a-powerhouse-offense

    The Vikings went on a spending spree last year signing Bernard Berrian and Jared Allen, two reasons why the team made the playoffs. They will also likely be $20 million under the projected 2009 salary cap, so what if Zygi Wilf decided he wanted to add another weapon or two to the team?

    Depending on if Wilf is willing to continue to spend big money, it’s not outside of the realm of possibility for the Vikes to put together a powerhouse offense for next season....
    You'll have to read the article to see who the two are, but I totally agree with his remarks!

    I don't agree with the two choices he presented and I am not sure that players alone can turn that offense into anything resembling a powerhouse.

    "biggest offensive free agent of 2009- stud wide receiver "

    That description might be a bit over the top.....but I would have no problem at all with both players being in Minnesota next fall!
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Agreed...he addresses only the glamorous positions. All great O's begin with great players in the trenches, and we definitely need some help there.

    Hmm.
    I definitely wouldn't complain if these two things happened.
    But will they?
    I doubt it.
    Both the Seahawks GM and head coach have both denied that he's on the block.
    And I don't really see us putting that spending that much money on our WR corp.
    The bidding war for Housh will probably be out of control, considering how many teams have a weakness in this area.

    Hasselback is a dainty little whinner, and I wouldn't want him to be the first choice of a vet QB....

    I think the writer is assuming we will pick up those offensive line needs in the draft.

    I've never liked Hasselbeck. And I think Houshmandzadeh is too similar to Rice IMO. If we're bringing in a stud WR I think we need to invest in a receiver with a different style. We need a big physical receiver who can muscle corners and get clean off the line.

    The two moves? Childress and Bevell out the door.

    You could sign Joe Montana and Jerry Rice in their heydays, but if you lack coaching savvy and leadership at the top, it wouldn't make a bit of difference.

    Who's your mama and Garcia would be cool, as well.
