    Stephen Davis?

    The Vikes have always lacked a goal line runner who can bull his way into short yardage situations and Stephen Davis is the ultimate short yardage guy second to Jerome Bettis. He would be a huge boost to our short yardage plays.

    He's old (32), doesn't have much left and he knows it so his asking price will be reasonable.

    I think our RB's are deep enough to get the job done and adding a goal line runner would make them quite a force.

    ONLY if he is healthy, comes cheap, and is willing to play in a limited role as a goal line back...otherwise, he doesn't really fit into a WCO.

    You know what I hate? Dumba$$ trolls who refute people's posts without any reasoning. Stephen Davis in a goal line role is money and was successful in Carolina. We've needed a goal line runner so this makes sense.

    Judging by your Randy Moss sig, you must be some lame bandwagon fan still living in the past...

    Ciatric Fason will be fine in this role and more.

    No fighting chilluns!

    I don't get mad with all of the free agent speculation around here. Sure, maybe it would get annoying if it went on for months (AKA Randy Moss and C-Pep threads) but the free agent threads don't bother me. You could really make a case for every good free agent player to make an impact on the team, so I don't think it's a big deal. Speculate away!

    I'll agree we need someone to do this. Haven't had a good one for years. But I also will admit I have no idea who would be best. I do agree experience is needed, and if it can be had cheaply until a younger player for the position can be found, go for it.

    if it bothers you so much, gdavikes84, don't click on the damn link.
    simple as that.

    ciatrick fason was horrible as a goal-line runner this year. we need a 2002 version of moe williams: a bruising back who can rip out 10 touchdowns out of his arse. stephen davis provided to be that back for carolina with deshaun as the go to guy.

    we should consider him, if the price is right and the number of years are low.

    we need a running back who can do it all; it's kinda obvious what were gonna do when we put moe williams in.

    I'd keep Fason, thank you. Sure, if Davis comes cheap, let him compete; but, he doesn't look like the answer to me.
