    Re: What are we doing

    Actually we have been extremely aggressive in FA. K-Rob, Longwell, Taylor, Hutch, Leber, trading Daunte... Do you really call that barely making any moves? Or are we just not making the moves that yu want to see? :grin:

    Have faith, this Viking ship is just starting to sail...

    I agree with you we are not geting the guys we want in soon enough. Julian Peterson is meeting with the Seahawks.
    We got the guys WE WANT that is where all of you are wrong. This is not Madden ... you cannot just get all the best guys at all the spots. We obviously wanted Taylor and went right out and got him ... we obviously wanted Longwell and immediately tied him up and we made a HUGE offer on Hutchinson to shore up our biggest weakness ...
    What do you guys want? The only thing we missed out on that we seriously pursued was Dexter Jackson (who had one really good game in his career and is living off of that). Although I think by the tender offered to Offord that our coaches are very happy with him and are not too concerned with chasing an over-priced safety.
    To say we are missing out because other players are signing with some of the other 31 teams is a little overboard ... we are do fairly well.

    You guys are getting Hutch? :-(

    I didn't hear anything about that. This just depresses me as a Packer fan. The Vikes are getting all the players I like. Especially Ryan Longwell. If you guys end up with Favre the gloves are coming off. I'll pop that wounded balloon you call 'home.'

    Then I will go home and cry in my beer. :-(
    Wow Frozen! You didn't hear that we signed Hutch to an offer sheet? Maybe you should cut back on the beer! :lol: Hey, just so you know, we traded C-Pep too! :wink:
    Been very busy. I'm participating in production of 'JesusChrist Superstar' with my brother and I just don't have any free time. I don't think I've had a chance to log in here in literally months. Hell, I can't find time to read the sports page most days.

    I did hear about Pep though, which is incidentally why I logged on here today. Wanted to see what you all had to say about it.

    I dont understand what the vikings are doing. There are some great players out in free agency and we have so much cap room and we are barely making any moves. I dont get what they are doing
    They are making good, well thought out decsions.

    I am pretty sure, kinda, that Childress and Co. know a little more about these players and football than we do.

    It takes time for these guys to visit different teams. You do not think Childress with the amount of cash we have wants some of these guys? You just cannot get all the big names, they have to be able to play together also. Watch "Miracle" and you will see.

    We will have Hutch and we got Taylor. If we went and signed every Pro Bowl players people still would be wondering what we are doing.

    Ultraviking:

    Putting Ryan Longwell in your sig is likely to offend Packer Fans. Some might commit suicide. I'm sure this pleases you and I figured I'd let you know personally just how much it hurts.

    So you could laugh in my face, of course. Boy is that clown we got running (ruining?) our franchise an idiot. :-(

    A lot of coin hasn't left the coffers yet, that could be good. If the Hutchinson deal doesn't go through the Vikings have spent relatively nothing so far. There are some gaps being filled though, slowly but surely.

    So far we have signed (I'm sure I'm spacing some):

    Joey Goodspeed FB
    Chester Taylor RB
    Koren Robinson WR
    Ryan Longwell PK
    Jonathan Nichols PK
    Steve Hutchinson OG (fingers crossed)
    Jason Whittle OG

    They are working on a QB as I type and what else? Too many possibilities. I'm sure the offices in Winter Park are bubbling. I wonder what will transpire? Oh, the fun of offseason.

    Oh, you have no idea how much this one hurts. Through '04 Longwell's success rate in Lambeau was 84% The rest of the league--going back to '97--was at 68%. And we let 'em walk. You know what? Delusional Packer Fans think we might be able to sign Adam Vinitieri. (or however the hell you spell it) Ya know what's funny about that? There's no other kicker in the NFL as comperable to AV as Ryan Longwell. Look it up--it's spooky. They're almost clones.

    And we let him walk and the Vikes (of all teams!) scooped him up. I'm still mad about that. I think someone needs to be spanked. :-(
