    Re: Vikings' Backfield In 2011

    At first I voted one of the best thinking this was just about the RBs ... but with the QB and FB into the fold I will say that it is good.

    I like McNabb. I know that not everyone does. I understand the concerns. But I think he is perfect for what this team needs right now in the pre-Ponder days.

    I think D'Imperio could be pretty solid and at least he isn't Tahi.

    And of course at RB I think we are fantastic. I think that Peterson, Gerhart and Booker will all be important to this team this season and will all be very solid pieces.

    Unfortunately, a good QB & great RB won't get you very far if the OL doesn't do their job well.

    AD still has a lot of work to do to become a better pass blocker. He needs to be the complete package, not just one of the best rushers.

    Cowgirls - Romo you can keep. I like their backup though if its still Kitna.


    AD and Toby are a great primary threat. Mix in what Booker is continuing to do as a 3rd down back I will take our RB's. Who else is better?

    CJ in TN? Who is his backup?
    Turner is good in Atlanta but they brought back a retread.

    FB is hard. I just don't see us using one that much.

    Nope, for me, I think we are going to see our RB and QB leading the league atleast in the dumpoff catagory. Lets not forget how great Dnabb makes RB look in the passing game. We saw some quick flashes of that between he and Toby already this weekend and Dnabb didn't even get a chance to work with Booker.
    I'd have to say Rodgers & Flynn are one of the better QB duos, based on what we've seen of Flynn thus far. He was 27-31 against NE last year & passed for 251 yards & 3 TD's.

    St. Louis: QB Sam Bradford, RB's Steven Jackson, Cadillac Williams, Jerious Norwood...the Rams running game was lightyears ahead of last year in the first pre-season game. And Jackson didn't even play. And 4th running back Toston stole the show.....

    Hmmm, interesting. Didn't think about them. Who is Flacco's backup though?
    #2 - Hunter Cantwell and #3 Tyrod Taylor :dry:
    Thanks. I'll take Dnabb and Ponder (or Webb) over those two.

    On a side note, I wonder if Flacco will opt to leave when his contract is up. They sure aren't giving him any love in Ravenville.

    Steelers have slow windup and even slower delivery Leftwich. I'll take our over that.

    Might go with you on Pats though but only cause of Brady.

    I think the Saints passing game is gonna suffer a bit this year although I still like what Bree's has done. Call it a draw.

    If Rodgers goes down no way Flynn carries that team. We saw it last year.

    Even with their starter, the Lions? Comeon my friend. Cat hasn't made it a full year and who is his backup?

    Seriously, looks like you just picked some teams and threw them up there. Thats OK though. I understand were your coming from. LOL

    Question for them is who do they keep?

    Said it before, I like what the Rams are doing, but once you get past Bradford, AJ just doesn't make me all warm and fuzzy.
