    The bolded ones are the one I believe were solid pick ups.
    This has been a very good FA for the Vikings, and I am pumped for the season to start!

    I don't know, the Pats had a pretty big offseason last year.

    We acquired more players, but quantity is not always quality.

    Moss, Welker, Stallworth,and Thomas were all major contributors to that team.

    We still have the draft, so only time will tell how good this offseason was.

    I like what they have done with the exception of the offensive line and since my belief is that when building a team you start first with the line I would like them to work on that next.

    Agreed. The off season isn't over yet. I'm very excited to see what we do with the picks that remain.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    I can't remember it.
    My criticism on their willingness to get key FA's is totally squashed at this point.

    THAT says it ALL.
    ALMOST Steinbrenner-esque, I'd say....without the bluster, of course.
    I LOVE it when the owner of my favorite teams opens up the checkbook!!!
