    Vikes diehard unfortunately relocated in Iowa

    Hello!!! Ended up in Iowa after a stint in the military... and as you all know Iowa s*&ks. Originally from Mankato and still make it to training camp every year. Played some division 2 football at St. Cloud State and live and die with the Vikes every year.
    As for my thoughts on the vikes this year I am excited about the changes on defense, and probably more excited about the change at offensive coordinator. It was easy to see how Scott L. fell in love with the quick strike offense, but I think you are going to see with Loney that along with a little more ball control via the run, the offense will remember how to run screens and short control passes other than that one step drop pass to Moss. Offensive lineman love to get out on the screen and annihilate corners and safeties... This will only help the defense more as the offense will spend more time on the field and still be just as effective. Our stable of running backs will be best used if we get numerous touches out in the flats, where they can make a move. Think about it... how many times have you said, they scored too quickly? Mewelde may well be the second coming of Ricky Young! And as for the needs in the draft, I would like to see Mike Williams, the best linebacker remaining at 18, and then offensive lineman and after that best available. By the way, I come from a family of Packer fans... God dmn, I am looking forward to the season!!!!

    Vikes diehard unfortunately relocated in Iowa

    Welcome dblake10 and glad you found us. Can't comment on Iowa as I've never been there ! but some good thoughts on the offensive scheming.
    Sorry to hear about the family ties - but all families have a dark side somewhere. Just think of the fun you'll have twice this season with KWill & PWill bursting through and chasing Favre around !

    Enjoy yourself here and ultra will be along with your beer shortly
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Welcome.
    I use to live in Mankato for a couple years. Where did you go to elementary school?
    I voluntarily agree to not indulge in any alcohol, drugs, or engage in any other illegal activity that may in any way jeopardize the years of hard work we as a team have committed to our goal of a championship season in '76.
