Thread: Are the Vikings an Old Team?
Re: Are the Vikings an Old Team?
There are different ways you can run the 2 TE sets also and having that formation doesn't necessarily indicate the the offense is WCO.
For instance, they use it to a degree in Pittsburgh and when Denny Green got here we also ran it in a hybrid version that actually tried to combine the Walsh and the Gibbs syatems. ( The Gibbs model is the one nearest and dearest to my heart with AP running behind the counter like Riggins did.

I just liked the playcalling that game. We played to our strengths, and did what we had to do to win.
You have to admit, that Favre scramble to seal the win was awesome. One of my favorite games of last year.

Our team as a whole may not be that old, but our core guys are getting up there. Rebuilding might be too strong of a word. How about "re tooling"

To your point, what core guys are we loosing?
Pat? He doesnt' really give us anything great anymore. Leber? Definately can be upgraded. Tahi? We don't even use a FB really. Hussain? Definately a loss IMHO. Finally coming into his own (Prime example of how long it takes some players to get it) and needs to be resigned.
Williams, Pat DT 15 - Younger replacement
Longwell, Ryan K 15 - Younger replacement
Sheppard, Lito DB 10 - Replacement already on roster
Leber, Ben LB 10 - Replacement already on roster + Rook
Ramsey, Patrick QB 9 - Younger replacement
Walker, Frank DB 9 - Replacement already on roster
Lewis, Greg WR 9 - Replacement already on roster
Cook, Ryan T 6 - Younger replacement
Jackson, Tarvaris QB 6 - ?? Younger Player
Tahi, Naufahu RB 6 - Replacment already on roster
Baskett, Hank WR 6 - ?? Replacement already on roster
Evans, Fred NT 6 - ?? Could be a vet
Frampton, Eric DB 5 - Younger replacement
Abdullah, Husain DB 4 - Needs to be resigned
Henderson, Erin LB 4 - Could be Lebers replacement/resign
Johnson, Tyrell DB 4 - Younger replacement
Young, Albert RB 3 - Replacement already on roster
= 127 years divided by 17 = 7.47 years average
(bold = starter that needs to be replace)
With 52 players already signed, 4 or 5 that need to be resigned, I don't think we are really "Rebuilding" nor are we that old.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

As exciting as you found that game, it was still, at its heart, the same scheme we have always run, with a few exceptions were we were slinging it all over the place.
Besides, you know that my biggest beef against the Noodle this year was his ankle and how it limited him when it came to rollouts/bootlegs. In 2009 he was moving all over the place. Heck he even threw a few blocks (illegal ones).Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
