    Reason we aren't attracting FA's like last year...

    QB issues... All of our free agents last year loved Daunte Culpepper and thought that he was destined for glory. Now, no one knows the future of the QB position and the drama that might occur there. Everyone knows that FA's like to come to teams with good QB's, especially if they are defensive players so they don't have to worry about carrying the team.

    Just a thought

    after one day last year we only had Pat Williams Signed. We're actually ahead of pace if you think about it.

    Nah, I don't think that's the reason. I just think it's the front office making bad decisions.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    I really think it is all about who can pay the most.

    Not alot of big names will be taken so far.. They are checking out more options..

    We need to start setting up visits though before they get too interested in other teams

    Front office isn't making bad decisions. We got 1 of the top 3 kickers in Ryan Longwell. We resigned K-Rob before he was able to hit fa. We got Chester Taylor, even though he has been a career backup.. We are on course to be better than last offseason.

    Besides, whether we have Pepp or Johnson behind center, that doesn't matter to fa players. What matters is who offers the most money, and the best chance at winning. BJ has something that Pepp doesn't, a SB ring. Now tell me fa players don't know that....

    So far I'm excited by who the vikes picked up. Guys trust me Chester Taylor will be a great addition, as well as Leber, both are good solid players. I think in the right offense Taylor will shine. Also Leber only lost his job due to the spectacular year Merriman had. I mean who saw that coming?

    Also anytime you can hurt the pack, well its a good day!

    Plus oh let us not forget we resigned are prsssing wide reciever issue in K Rob, so far so good in my book!
