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

    People seem to think we got all our FA's last year on the first day. We didn't.

    Pat Williams was the first day. Sharper and Smoot were at least a week later. And Travis Taylor and Brad Johnson were at least 2 weeks later.

    Hell.. Koren Robinson was a week before the season started.

    So settle down.

    I think we'lve had a pretty good FA period so far! We're only 24 hours into it and we got our first choices at kicker, running back and linebacker. Sounds pretty good to me.

    I like what they've done so far. I would rather have James for sure, but I think that Taylor can really shine under the right coaches and offense. as long as he's the full time back he should be good. I like that they're going after good players who do their job properly. we don't really need all big name guys to do well. look at what the patriots were able to do for 4 years, and they didn't have any big name guys except mabye Law and Seymore, but even on their first SB win they weren't big name guys. I hope we can develop these guys into big name guys.

    Don't forget, everyone was picking us to win the Super Bowl last year, too and so naturally a lot of players wanted to be with us. Now with the QB issue unclear that may be holding some people back. But I can just hear management telling these free agents their plans for others they want to get and they are buying into it. We just need to have some patience.

    we were picked to win the superbowl BECAUSE of the players we signed in FA. before then we were a decent team held back by our piss poor defense.

    I'm all about value so I'm fine with the current pickups. Disspapointed that we never seriously pursued witherspoon though. However, if we don't sign a big name OL I will be pissed. The O-Line cost us the season last year so it should be our biggest concern. We better pony up the cash for Hutch or Will Shields.

    What we wanted, and what the Vikings front office wanted are two different things. Apparently, the Vikings got exactly who they wanted. If they wanted Vinateri, James, and Witherspoon they would have set up meetings with them instead of Leber, Longwell, and Taylor..
