    Minnesota Vikings: Five Simple Steps to Success

    Despite a mediocre 2007 season and "expert predictions" sending the Vikings once again to the NFC North cellar, I believe that the purple uniforms from Minnesota have a bright future ahead of them....

    very nice read

    i like the phillips pick, but not if we have to trade up to get him, if he isnt, we can get derrick harvey
    you gotta love that he doesnt hate on TJack and that we should not touch chester(which is dumb beyond belief if we did)
    and with signing Johnson, he is 3rd on my list, behind porter and berrian.

    I think that the better plan is covering the wide receiver need via free agency, rather than through the draft. There are better wide receiver options in free agency, such as Bryant Johnson, Bernard Berrian, Devery Henderson, Drew Carter, and possibly Randy Moss.
    After that line, can we really take this article seriously?

    I quit reading as soon as i found out he was blaming our secondary for getting tourched. How about the fact that we don't have any pass rush. Nobody is this league can oover long enough for our Defensive line to get to the QB. It's been like this for quite some time, no matter what all stars you have in the backfield. Give any QB adequate time and he will torch you.

    That much of it I agree with.

    Why draft a WR whose talent is unknown at the pro level & wait three years to see if he pans out when the need for a top-notch go to guy is immediate?

    Because they guys on FA are looking for a large payday and aren't proven.
    They all have flaws. I much rather draft a rookie like Sweed or Kelly than throw a sh*t load of money at Berrian. Lastly, when you draft a WR you get them, FAs can chose where they go.

    Our first round pick will make as much money as Berrian...

    Not necessarily. The Chargers thought they were getting Eli Manning when they drafted him.

    Pretty good read, with some exceptions (Moss, the secondary being our main defensive issue, etc.)
    The thing i agreed with the most is keep CT here..i completely agree when he sais that he shouldn't be considered a backup, because he still really gets a good number of carries.
    Bryant Johnson is alright, id like to see Berrian or Porter here before him though.
    I don't think we should trade up for Phillips either, we can get an asset to this team without trading up for a higher pick, its not necisarry.
