    Re: State of the Franchise Vikings

    Agreed

    AP also needs to work on his hands and run better routes

    Chester rotates to the slot sometimes.. He sets up his screens well.. He runs good out routes and good swing passes

    He is a great 3rd down back.. But we gotta get him involved in more then just 3rd downs.. And AP needs to be able to be pretty much an every down back and do these little things

    Especially if Chester ends up leaving

    Not shown on TV today because of Cutler trade and recorded before the completion of trade.


    Personal note: Am I alone in being annoyed by Mayock's obsession with us needing to use the Wildcat which was completely ineffective after the first half of the season?
    No.
    Though I'd like the play-calling to be more imaginative, I don't think drafting Pat White to come in and run the Wildcat for 15 snaps is something that is going to elevate our offense to the next level.
    Sure, some trickery every once in a while can be good, but let's not turn us into a gimmicky offense for 15 plays a game.
    Agreed.

    We don't need any out of the box thinking. We need a staff that can get the team to execute the basics without penalties or floop ups and we will be fine. I only wonder how long it will take to find that staff.
    wrong.. we have certain staff that should be IN a box
    ;D
    haha that's hilarious.
    Laughed very hard at this comment!

    As for the whole Wildcat comment, I don't know, I kind of like it.
    If we can get Pat White in the 3rd, I say we take a look.
    In the 5th, without a doubt.
    With All-Day, Chester, and Pat White on the field, that is an unbelievable trio to run that offense.
    Not to mention White's had a very good combine/workouts.
    As for our #22 selection, Harvin is obviously an option.
    I'm still not sure where I want us to go with it though.


    One thing I would like, which has not been said probably at all and is close to zero possibility of happening, but how about if Rey Maualuga is still there at #22?
    Or even if he's around the 18-20 range, I would love to see him here.
    Get younger and have him ready to replace Leber.
    Our LB's would be ready for years to come.
    The Lions would probably be interested in trading down and adding a pick.


    D.J. Moore at 54 and go get Tauscher and have him, Cook, and Hicks battle for the RT spot.
    Another intriguing option in the 2nd round would be Duke Robinson.
    We again would likely have to move up a couple spots to grab him, but again could be worth it.
    Put him in at RG and move Herrera to center.

    I also agree.
    IMO part of the problem is APs inability to be effective in these scenerios.
    I know we want him in all the time but untilo he proves he can effectively handle the situations it will continue this way.
    People like to blame the coaching staff but then they complain because people aren't being used correct in their opinion.


    What people fail to realize is part of it is because that particular player isn't fully capable yet.
    It doesn't mean they are bad players or the coaching staff is doing a poor job.
    It means they still have a learning curve to master.
    Some players get it quicker than others.
    Matt Forte for example.
    This guy is already an all around back.
    They are very hard to come by for rookies.
    There is much more to this than just being the best pure runner.
