    Thanks Anglo.
    For the life of me I wish I could figure out a way they could keep an extra lineman this year but I can't.

    Re: Vikings still short on offensive tackles after NFL draft

    I think that all worthy OTs went off the board so early that we didn't have chance to land any of them, so they went to plan B. We are now left with virtually no holes, with exception of Bmac. My guess is we will go the year with Bmac because we have no other appealling option, then next year make our move to land a top notch OT and therefor jettison Bmac.

    Nicks was sitting there, but you are probably pretty accurate with that statement.
    Alas, rationale thought like that is lost on the masses though my friend.

    Excellent post.

    Agreed on that, think in recent years we have realised the benefits of having good depth on the line both to cover injuries and poor play - having not had it. Before that we had a good OL that never seemed to get injured and I think it made us forget about depth.
