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

    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
    They said they were ready to start winning in 2006
