    I wouldn't wanna draft a RB so high.
    Seems RB is the easiest position to have someone step up and be alright.
    First should be QB, second S, CB, DT, or OL IMO.

    Re: Who would win Saints, Vikings matchup?

    No need to use a draft pick on a running back next year if Chester Taylor is gone, especially not on day one when alot of good feature backs can be found in later rounds. I can give you 3 reasons:

    1. Adrian is one of those type of backs that can take 40 carries a game. He is a workhorse and his stamania is incredible. Why do you think he's called "All Day"? In many games I have seen him play as strong in the 4th quarter as he did in the 1st quarter. Most times he plays even better in the 4th quarter because the defense breaks down, but Adrian does not.

    2. Percy Harvin. This dude can be the ultimate change-of-pace-back to take that place of Chester Taylor as the 3rd-and-long-back. Mainly because of his experience in the passing games and his good ball catching skills, but also because he's blazing fast with an even faster acceleration than Adrian Peterson. Percy Harvin played running back in high school and college. in college, Harvin had almost 10 yards per carry on over 200 attempts without a single fumble.

    3. Has everyone forgot about Ian Johnson? The undrafted rookie who got cut in favor of Albert Young this year. I think he put on a very impressive performance in preseason, both running and catching the balls. Last time I checked, Ian was still on out practise squad.

    good points, but I just don't wanna see Harvin as a runningback.
    A few carries here or there is good, but he's far too good of a playmaker to be stuck as a runningback.
    LEave him as wideout and returner and get a back.
    Also keep in mind, his success in college was partially due to him being such a great athlete, and the surprise factor.
    What works in college doesn't always work in the NFL


    Also, just nitpicking here, 2nd round isn't a day one pick anymore.

    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
    Really, isn't that the ONLY point of this debate? If Winfield were in, and our Safeties were playing at the level of, say, our d-line, I think we'd run away with that game. But our secondary is where there opens a debate. Just my take..

    Re: Who would win Saints, Vikings matchup?

    Right now I'd have to say the Saints win 6 of 10 at their place, with it being basically even at the Metrodome.
    I guess it would depend a lot on how well the Vikes defensive line did getting to Brees, and what kind of the secondary had.

    But I like the Vikes chances as the season goes on.
    If the offensive line can get back on track in the run game, the offense should be even better, or at least able to overcome a possible bad day by Favre.
    I guess I see the Vikes as having a lot of untapped potential yet, while I think the Saints have played as well as they're going to.

    I could be wrong on that.

    Would definitely be a fun game to watch though.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    Re: Who would win Saints, Vikings matchup?

    My only worry would be the Viking secondary.
    Good news is AW will be back healthy and if we see NO in the playoffs the younger guys will be more experienced.
    Another thing, the Saints have played at a very high level all year, maybe peaking too early.
    It is tough to maintain that standard all through the second half of a season and playoffs.
    I think we can all agree the Vikings have yet to reach their full potential and peaking in December /January is a real possibility.

    I know I just like having 2 stud RBs

    But there are bigger priorities

    Luckily for us we don't have too many holes and can look for replacements

    I think a big part of that answer depends upon where the game is played.
    At Mall of America Field, I pick the Vikings.
    In the Superdome, I probably pick the Saints.

    HATE THAT THEY DID THAT!!
