    Overhaul of Vikings roster is part of team's air of confidence

    [size=13pt]Overhaul of Vikings roster is part of team's air of confidence[/size]

    The release of Erasmus James is the latest of the "out with the old, in with the new" with the team, which believes it has the players to go a long way this season.

    With the release of defensive end Erasmus James, the Vikings have only one player left on their roster from the 2005 draft -- backup offensive lineman Marcus Johnson.....

    If they didn't have the pieces they wanted before, they certainly do now.This year looks like an indication that they have accepted the fact that they can't just bring in any turd and polish it and they are going after true talent to get to where they want to be. Hopefully they have what it takes to get that talent to play at a SB level.

    I am really excited for the preseason. I love seeing everyone getting a chance to play.

    Mike Tice was fired after the 2005 season after posting a 9-7 record – a mark Childress has yet to achieve.
    He better get above that this year. A failed season could mean chaos on PP.O

    You get the impression that there is a new air of confidence among Vikings players and coaches that they finally have the players to go a long way.
    Of course the impression is there.
    Show me any coachings staff that would be unhappy when the Front Office brings in more Vets than they did rookies...... ;D

    Seriously though, we have a very nice mix of older Vets, Vets coming off thier first contract and a nice mix of 2nd and 3rd year players that have been drafted the last 2 years who have serious reps in actual game time situations.

    What is to dislike about a team that will play together for years to come as the staff sprinkles in new talent via the draft and an additional Vet here and there to fix a few holes.

    IMHO that is how you build a team to win over the long haul my friends.
    By the way, that team is ready to win starting this year.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
