    Could Chilly take and Adrian Peterson if he is there?
    Seriously,
    I just don't think that it would be wise.


    You can tell that Chilly and Co have a plan.
    They are filling voids.
    CT didn't look like a void to me.
    Prudence and Patients must be virtues. There will be another chance to get a RB next year. There seems to be a ton on the FA market each season also.

    Re: What about a RB in the draft?

    He's a whole 28?! That's so old! Not really...

    Chester had a great year last year, and he is a VERY young 28. He was a career backup until this year, and had never carried the ball more than 160 times in a season until he joined the Vikes.

    Chester still has a good 3 or 4 years left in his prime, so I don't think it's time to look to the future yet.

    Receiver and quarterback are our biggest needs....I think we should look to either of them in the 1st round.

    If Adrian Peterson is available and Brady Quinn is not, then, yes, I think the Vikings should take him.
    However, if Quinn is available, the Vikings must select him.

    I strongly disagree!

    But what do I know, I am not a coach or GM of a professional sports team, heck I am not even part of a triangle of authority.
    Or a Pentagon of Power!

    Rick "I'm not Chris" Spielman
    Scott Studwell

    But I think that Rick, Scott and Rob only count for one vote.
    SO they occupy one corner of a triangle.
    Each corner counts for one vote.
    LOL!

    Re: What about a RB in the draft?

    I have to agree with snow.
    I won't discount it as a possibility, but I personally think that if AP is available at the number 7 spot and Quinn, CJ, Adams, and Thomas are all gone, the Vikes phone will be ringing, and the PoP will be listening...

    http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/teams/depth?team=min

    Whats the status of Pinner?
    I thought they offered him a contract or something?

    I for one am leaning toward the concept of having someone to share the load.
    Not sure if he was over worked, took to many hits cause of line problems, took to many hits cause Tony went down to injury, or his own inury,
    but CT did drop off a bit last year.

    We need some stud to step up and fill in for some carries.
    :

    Bet they bring in some undrafted rookies like maybe:

    Germaine Race RB 5'11 225 Pittsburgh St. DII Player that might slip through the cracks.
    Alonzo Coleman RB 5'11 205 Hampton
    (Got to see this guy play a couple times down here.)
    A bit on the small size I guess.

    Hershel Dennis RB 5'11 200 USC
    Might not get drafted because of knee injury issues the last two years.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Can you imagine how ballistic some would get if Alonzo Coleman was signed?

    Re: What about a RB in the draft?

    If Quinn and A PEterson are both available, take Quinn.
    TJackson isn't a proven commodity.

    If only A Peterson is there, and the top 2-3 DEs and C Johnson are gone, try trading down a few slots.
    If time runs very short while trying to deal down, take A Peterson and aggressively shop him ASAP for a top 15 pick... and more.
    Then take a WR or DE or OL in round 1.

    The 'what if our current starter is injured' game can be played with any roster spot; e.g. what if Birk is injured, what if TJackson is injured, what if KWilliams is injured....
    But, the WR position is already 'injured' until those holes are filled by capable players.
    So, the 1st draft pick should be a WR, DE, or OL, not a RB, C, LG, LT, DT, LB, TE, P, K, .....
    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    RobB is clearly the most important member of the PoP - look at all the money the Vikes suddenly have after most early estimates were only for $10million!

    Studwell is important enough that he was one of the very few members of the Tice-era who was retained.

    Little Ricky might be the weakest corner, but he still represents a central voice of authority over the others.

    It's a PoP - not a ToA.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I am glad it is referred to as a Pentagon of Power; PoP.

    I hope it never morphs into a Pentagon of Omnipotent Power.

    I don't do it much but he is my Homer pick from down here.
