I think just about everyone here at P.P.O is in agreement that the Vikes are in need of a quarterback. Yeah we got Johnson now.. he's a great player and leader. I'm not really sure about the whole Mike McMahon thing. He might be alright for now, but I don't think he's the next FRANCHISE quarterback of the vikings. In my OPINION.. not that it counts for all that much.. I feel like we need to trade up for Leinart or Vince this year. If we don't.. we need to take our drafts this year and make them count. Then next year we need to put ourselves in a position to get someone like Brady Quinn of Notre Dame. This guy.. along with Weiss turned that football team around this year. Look at his numbers this year. He had over 30 TD's and well over 3000 yards passing. I think this guy is the real deal...let me know what you think..
Quinn is a decent QB, but I am not as quick as a lot of people to label him the next great thing at QB. Weiss is a HUGE reason why Quinn had as big of a year as he did last year. A great offensive system in college, can make QB's look much much better then they actually are. This is why Florida QB's always looked great under spurrier, but stunk in the NFL.
I am not saying Quinn stinks like the florida QB's actually did, but I do think he is being overrated a little bit thanks to Weiss great system. Quinn will more then likely have another really good year under Weiss and be a top 10 pick in next years draft, and I just don't see him being worth that. Plus throw in the fact that we will be picking at the bottom of next years draft.
If we can keep a 2nd in this years draft and still move up to get Cutler(not Vince Young, he isn't a good fit for the WCO), I think we should absolutely do it. Then use the 2nd on D'Quell Jackson from Maryland.
