    I wish to caution readers against wearing the PPO glasses and thinking this guy is a great football mind simply because he gave our team a good grade.

    He might be a great football mind, but PPOers have a tendency to over-inflate the brilliance of writers who say good things about the Vikes.

    Are you saying we wear purple colored glasses?

    I am insulted Zeus!
    I am always level headed and unbiased when it comes to the Vikings.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Yeah, just another dork with a nice site... with 300K hits per month during draft time.

    Why are we attacking this site?
    Not only is it somewhat reputable, but they gave us a good review too.

    I have gone there a few times before the draft.

    Many would consider us Vikings dorks with a nice site and even a PP.O Hell.
    Get over it.

    Re: draft review Vikings A+

    NFLDC is a very good site. Good pre-draft info, lots of fan mock drafts to look over, insightful experts. And i'm not just saying this because they gave us a good grade. Its one of those sites that's is one of my top visited during march and april but doesn't do too much good for the rest of the year.

    I never attacked the site.
    In fact, I was careful to say the author might be a great football mind.

    I just pointed out that if he had given the Vikings draft an F, PPO-ers would be hating on him and saying what an idiot he was.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Well yeah.
    If he gives the Vikings a good review, then he knows what he's talking about.
    If he doesn't, then he is obviously an idiot.

    All that matters is that I agree with his review.
    Of course I'm kind of partial to dorks.
    High risk/reward guys is what we got this year.
    Great athletes that have the potential to be superstars, they could easily flop as well, but I like the upside.

    Not so fast Ultra, this site has been around for awhile. I've even got it on my favorites. I've followed the site for like 3 years now, and whom ever he is, he seems to have a good grasp on who's who coming out of college ball.
    I don't think he is neccesarily a Vikings fan either. If I remember correctly, he didn't like our draft last season that much at all.




    Then again, only time and play will tell us all in the end, just how good or bad our draft was this year.



    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Re: draft review Vikings A+

    Oops...A-
    I knew that...D'oh!
    must of hit the wrong key?

    Pre draft, I checked this sight a ton.
    They always seem to have good info on nearly any and all the players coming out.
    I just went back there for the hell of it and found he did post-draft analysis too...

    After day1, I went straight to his DE list, knowing we still needed some depth there...I quickly surmised that Brian Robison was the best remaining...I woke up kind of late on Sunday, came down and turned on the TV to see our pick was missing...no longer listed at no.7 in the 4th.
    I of course said WTF????
    And, then the old PC fired up and I saw we had actually moved up for the guy I had targeted, based on this site.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!
