    Seriously.
    Have the Vikings ever been this active in FA?
    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!
    Pope does have a bit of upside but I think you are pretty accurate there my friend.

    Wouldn't suprise me to see some of them not making the cut.
    Still good to see the FO bringing in some prospects regardless of what we think of the players.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    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!!!
    I'd compare it to being Synder-esque. Except the 'Vikes payed All that money for many awesome players as oppossed to just one.
    Tuco the world.....

    i think the boulware pick up was a solid one too, a solid back S and a solid special teamer

    As of yet, there is no way to say whether this is the best year or not.

    Ask again after the season.

    Re: Vikings Offseason 2008: Best Ever?

    I'd say that the front office guys has done a very good job of acquiring some of the best talent they could get their hands on.

    As usual it'll be very exciting to see how the roster will shake down after TC, and lets not forget that we still have a bunch of picks this weekend.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
