    Bring up the name of any top player that's a FA and we've got people who will say, "Let's get him." In fact, on a thread in here a bit ago there were six top FA mentioned that the Vikings could go after and someone suggested we try to get all six.
    First of all Fitzgerald isn't coming here because we got no QB that can throw to him. And even if we did, with him the only really good receiver he'd be double and triple teamed all the time -- ala Moss his last year with us when he finally gave up because he was covered like a blanket and were were stuck throwing short passes to the likes of Wiggins. And everyone thinks he was so great because he caught so many passes. It was mainly because so many defenders were on Moss he was wide open over the middle all the time.
    Secondly, the Vikings are not going to be able to afford him and a QB in the long run. We got some decent receivers -- not great but decent -- we just need someone to be able to throw to them.

    Hell it must be pretty damn embarraasssssing to have sports collumnists ping on you as a shitty reporter.

    What am I saying, I have been saying that for years.
    ;D

    If we give up any pics for a player this year, my bet would be that the staff (and not just the Chiller) will use them on getting a better option at QB and not a WR my friends.

    Our recieving corp would/will be fine when we get some consitency at the QB position.

    After we trade for Fitz, we are going to sign Derek Anderson in FA, draft the greatest SS to ever play the game and roll toward the super bowl!!!

    Then we are going to turn off our Madden game...

    Honestly, I am not disappointed in our receiving corps this year.
    Complain all you want, but Rice has shown flashes of brilliance.
    Wade has proven to be a very, very good slot receiver.
    Williamson is catching balls.
    Even Fergie has stepped up his game.
    I don't see us selling the farm for a single great WR.

    Fitzgerald is one of the best WRs in the game and would help our passing attack for sure.
    Constant double teams would mean one less player in the box to defend our running game, which mean a lot more 150+ yard running days than we've been getting lately.

    Thank you!!

    Not only would he give our young QB a safety blanket and a great target.. He would be a super decoy

    Im pretty sure we wont get him.. This has been going on for like 3 years.. But I would love to try!

    It's pretty much just one of those rumors that get talked about because they make sense for one team but will never happen.
    He'd probably cost 2 first rounders anyway.

    Yah for sure..

    Just saw his salary too.. Holy smokes

    After we sign our players and rookies and possibly a free agent or two we won't have too money

    I don't think we could really afford him
