Could you imagine if we had a line like oaklands and houstons? We have a top 5 Oline. Get me a top 15 QB and we will excel.
    tell that to the 2000 baltimore ravens.
    or the Bucs when they won their superbowl.
    Neither had a particularly good qb, but still managed to win it all.
    Perhaps there's a bit more to having a good team than having an all-star qb.

    Ya, I would like to see who says that. I want a direct quote. Usually I've heard that championships are built with good defense, especially when it comes to the playoff.

    We will have the same offence as long as our scheme is garbage and playcalling is pathetic

    The Bengals will resign TJ and let Chad go.

    The Seahawks will keep Hasselbeck due to the weak draft class for QBs. They will pick one up next year with a impressive QB class.

    Re: Vikes are two moves away from a powerhouse offense

    Eh ... no chance of either of these happening I think.
    By the way ... how many teams aren't two moves away from a powerhouse offense? Hell, even the Lions ... add a great OT and a stud QB and their offense could be damn impressive ... two players is practically changing 1/5th of the unit ... so yes, most teams would be much better if they got two player who were much better than what they currently have on their offense.

    That's fine. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I would just like to see more reasons why people have the opinions they have rather than just saying "no."
    To say we don't need O line help is just not right. No QB in the league would work well behind the Vikes O line. So we need to address that issue, possibly a QB and I think we need another receiver to stretch the field to keep people from jamming the box.
    That's not true... we need O-line help, but you act like it's abundantly attrocious.. that is not the case... even in pass blocking we're about middle of the road in the NFL..

    and besides, if we were to get another receiver and a QB, ppl wouldn't be blitzing us like they are now... not even close.. which in turn will make the O-line look atlot better...

    I admist we could use a RT, and that is a big priority but don't act like our O-line is one of the worst in the league...(i highlighted your comment in red)...

    and whoever said TJ is another Sid Rice.. has no fucking idea what he/she's talking about... not even close..
    the more i'm on here the more i realize how many people have no fucking clue what their talking about... TJ is a stud wide receiver, and has been damn near the best (top 5 for sure) receiver in the AFC over the last two years.. better than his louder counterpart Chad...

    TJ is exactly the type of receiver we need in purple... he's an excellent route runner, has glue hands and can move the chains and go across the middle...

    now as far as the article, i'm not so sure about Hasselbeck.. but I'm hearing rumors Jake Delhomme may be available...

    either way, though, Cincy is going to franchise TJ... we will have to trade for him bc there's no way cincy let's him walk for nothing in return... he's probably their best player... a more realistic option for them would be to trade Chad...

    Adding those two might not make us an offensive powerhouse, but we'd certainly be good enough to be pretty damn good.

    Sorry if I gave the impression our O line stinks. You're right, that's certainly not true. But you and I both know we need at least a RT, maybe a center, and some backups.

    i def. agree... RT for sure.. but in all honesty, if we could get a legit QB, and a receiver like Housh, in lieu of a RT, then i'd be for it.. remember we still have some decent guys on the p.squad and artis hicks will come back.. he's better than Cook for sure... could maybe even move cook back to Center... either him or sulivan..

    what i'm concerned about is our development on O-lineman.. it just flat out sucks.. we haven't been able to get guys, like Cook or Marcus Johnson to develop and they were both pretty high picks... just a flat out shame!!
