    Percy Harvin, anyone?

    I think the comment is about a BIG pounding back that punishes the D.
    Mike Bell is 6'
    225lbs.
    Bigger than all Vikes RB's and far bigger than Harvin's 184lbs.

    Vikes need a Leroy Hoard, 5-11 225 type.
    BTW in 1999, I was in "post-Elway SB champs" Denver, when on 3rd and forever (I think 2 holdings and a false start) Leroy ripped a huge 53 yder on a draw play.
    It took forever for him to run it, looked like slow motion after 40yds.
    Changed the momentum of the game and Vikes won by 3, totally pissing off all Bronco fans.

    I can see your point.
    I was just thinking of how dynamic Percy can be and the fits it could give a defense with a two back set (AP, Harvin).
    The same could be said for AP & CT, or CT & Harvin.

    Peterson has been great in Short Yardage. He weighs only 8 pounds less than Mike Bell. We have no need for a bruiser. All we need is a spell HB who can help keep our stud fresh. If we are able to efficiently re-sign or replace Chester at the end of next year, I'll be stoked.

    Signing Chester is a good discussion ot have.

    I wonder what a team that is looking for a starter would pay him?
    One would think that just based on his tenure in the leauge it wouldn't be much, but if one were to look closely, there isn't alot of wear and tear on those legs.
    He might command top dollar.

    To date, we've seen this staff try to resign the vets they want to keep a bit early.
    Wonder if they will try after the Chillers deal gets done or does this fall into the "Uncapped Year" discussion.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    There is a link somewhere that basically said Taylor intends to try the market.
    No idea where I saw it though, but it was a direct quote from him.

    Re: Who would win Saints, Vikings matchup?

    Chester is gonna be walking

    First round draft a QB

    Second round draft a RB

    Third round draft some O-line depth (future replacement for Mac or Hutch)

    Fourth round Corner/safety

    I thought we'd see a lot more of him taking snaps by now. Play to your strengths Chilly
    I've been a Viking fan since I was just out of diapers, hopefully we get Super Bowl win before I go back in 'em.

    I think we should try to draft Bradford or McCoy in the first round, and aim for a FS in the second.
    Backup RB's aren't too hard to come by in free agency, but a decent safety is.

    Re: Who would win Saints, Vikings matchup?

    I too believe homefield advantage would play a big part in this matchup.

    We did see that the saints defense can give up big plays, and thier offense can be stopped when getting pressure on brees which we do very well. Peterson would have a big game, and the passing game would be opened up as well. It would be a tight hard fought game, but we would definately have a great chance at them....

    Only scary thing would be our secondary against the saints receiving corp and brees
