    Re: Corey Dillon to hit the market?

    He is good but he is passed his prime and there might be some character issues with him. I know he hasn't had any problems in NE but if he might be cancer if he comes here having had two superbowl wins and all.

    Re: Corey Dillon to hit the market?

    i will take the opposite on this one. corey dillan would be a huge pick-up for the vikes. our offense would be instantly better with him and then having MM to spell him... he would pound the ball and MM would finesse it...it would be like parker and bettis in pitt. i don't think we'll grab him but if we did i would be behind it 100%.

    yeah he makes their running game great thats why he only had 97 yards rushing in two games in the playoffs he's worth that 6 mil for sure. he only does good in the regular season and he has proven that and he's not a playoff quality running back.

    Dillion USED to be a bruiser back, there is no way he can carry the load for a whole season agian. Him and Bettis play very different style of games...Dillion is a straight up-hard-hitting runner with no moves and lack of speed. Bettis is light on his feet and can shift E and W. The comparison of Parker and Bettis is way off man =D

    Thanks for the Sig LitlHarsh

    No thanks. He is good, but I just have an odd feeling about him.

    If we are not good he'll start to cry to the media.


    Man Ultra, you took the words right out of my mouth. Great minds think alike I guess. :grin:

    NO!

    The RBs we have are good enough to do what Dillon does. He is too injury prone and gets paid more than what we should be willing to pay him. Two to three years ago, I would have said yes.


    We need a O line with a run all over you attiude.

    Re: Corey Dillon to hit the market?

    Price is the only issue here. Sure, he's a dang good back, but how much is he asking for? We need to find linebackers that are suited to the Tampa 2. Would Dillon's asking price hinder our ability to do so?

    Although it's undeniable that we'd be better off with Dillon as our running back, how much would our running game really benefit from it? We have fairly decent backs, and the offensive line has more of an impact on the running game than the RB himself does, so would the benefits of having Dillon outweigh the costs of having to pay him (regardless of whether or not he stays healthy)?

    I don't think this is the kind of risk we should be taking.

    Re: Corey Dillon to hit the market?

    I do not know that I would want to spend the kind of money it will take to get a Dillon when he had so many nagging injuries this season ... I have dealt with running backs with nagging injuries since 92 (yes ... even Robert Smith had those ... though he finally stopped and decided to retire) and would like us to get a guy that plays 14 or may games a year every year for the next three or four seasons ...

    Re: Corey Dillon to hit the market?

    Dillon was a trouble-maker in Cincinnati and so they got rid of him. The fans loved that he was gone. The Bengals did better without him. I will admit, he did seem to hold his mouth intact lately but again, we don't need another trouble-maker on the Vikings. We need team players not big mouths!
