    Lets hope they get a Matt Ryan instead of a Sanchize.
    It won't be known next year. We could end up marching out a Jamarcus Russell or Ryan Leaf for 16 weeks.

    And that's assuming they take one with the first pick. It wouldn't surprise me if they grabbed another non-QB player like they did in 2006 when we took Greenway. Clearly our need was at QB with the first pick that year also.

    Right now a few analysts consider him right in there with those two....I don't by the way. I think he will have problems for the next two years and then he will come around.

    Can you say DT? :laugh:

    If El Syd leaves we could go WR again.

    Abandoning the Metrodome

    ...The Vikings have built their team to play indoors for almost 30 years. As a result, their performance in cold weather has been abysmal for a long time. Playing outside sounds nice, but the Vikings would have to retrofit their roster and mindset to make it work.

    Thanks for the read my friend.

    I'm not sure, however, I bet they figure out how to sell beer during the games if TCF is the path they take.

    +1, I think alot of the issues could be solved fairly simply.
    Allow alchohol, I understand for college games but don't think it would be a problem for pro games. There are bars right across the street, it's not a dry neighborhood.
    Add bleachers to the open endzone should get capacity to near dome level.
    Roll up the turf and lay some heat pads.

    Bet they haven't figured out parking & tailgating.

    Does it matter? How many people showed up for the Bears game? 40,000? What a joke. Where are all the tough guys who wanted an outdoor stadium?

    Like you would have shown up.

    Don't put aside that this was in the middle of a rather large snowstorm. Took me more than 2 hours to get to the stadium. That storm cut down on a lot of the out-of-town traffic.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
