    Would you guys like big Leonard Davis as our new Right Tackle next year????

    I know this is really out of the blue becuz the Vikes had a nice win 2day but i was watching Big Leonard Davis at LT 2day and he really did good handlingRay Edwards except 4 the 1 sack Ray had 2 day and i was wonderin if i was the only 1 that would love 2 c him in a Vikes uniform next yr as our new RT instead of Marcus Johnson, or overrated and overpayed Mike Rosenthal. He's and upcoming fee agent and i really think we should go after him hard 2 solidify our O-Line instead of just having 1 side stronger than the other.


    Here's some info about him:

    Position: T
    Height: 6-6
    Weight: 366
    Born: 09/05/1978
    College: Texas
    NFL Experience: 6

    Here's a list of his strengths and weaknesses

    "SSSMMMOOTTT" & "Toine" will be the best CB combo in the NFL next year TRUST ME!!!

    (From Scouts, Inc): Physically has everything you would want in an offensive tackle - big, powerful, with the ability to absolutely be dominating as run blocker. Has the size and wing span to engulf defensive linemen and be overpowering at the point of attack. Will wear down defenders over the course of a game. Good at short area pass protection, holds his ground against bull rushers and will stun DE's with a good initial punch. But he doesn't slide very well on pass protection, struggles to redirect and can be beaten by double moves. Not real comfortable in space. Fits best in the role of a solid and physical run blocker who can also provide good inside pass protection vs. slower and more physical defensive linemen. Kind of a crossroads in his career because he's not producing enough for the money he makes.

    I say if Rosenthal or Cook get the job done and play well the rest of the year, keep them. They both seemed to do very well today, so I'm not worried about RT until they screw up (which may or may not be coming). Both of those guys are major upgrades over Johnson though, that's for sure.

    I would LOVE to have him. Huge guy and has been shuffled around to every position on the o-line. Would make a great right tackle for us.

    If we could sign him and maybe chris dielman this free agency our o-line would be set.

    Probably would cost us too much money...but we probably DO need an upgrade on the right side...UNLESS Cook can step up!
    Rosey is getting a little too long in the tooth to be the future for us at RT.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I do not think the team will be able to dump more money in the offensive line.
    Hard to justify putting that much money in there and leaving other positions vacant with talent.
    Everybody is screaming for a big time WR; they cost money.

    We need someone who catch a ball first.
    Today was the first time in awhile that we actually did that.

    Why not just put all of our salary cap into the offensive line?


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    because, italian, that wouldnt sell tickets.
    ;D

    Imagine if we actually had a great WR this year. the running game would be opened up even more (gah, imagine chestor running w/out 8 guys in the box!), the big play potential would keep defenses (and us) on our toes, and BJ would have a lot of heat taken off of him = the threads about TJack and benching Brad would be GONE!!!
