    Re: What Ever Happened

    The Vikings still do them

    Moss next to nothing

    Culpepper for nothing

    We're just paying less for nothing now

    Although Ditka did give up an entire draft year for reefer smokin running back

    I think teams have learned their lessons in the last decade, like look at the Packer why trade away players and picks when you can just way over pay for guys like Woodson

    VikinGreg you hit on why there are really no blockbuster trades anymore, it is because of Free Agency! Before FA teams had to draft their players and develop them (3 to 4 year process), if you were missing a key piece of the puzzle you had to trade for a player because there wasn't any other options.

    So the team with the player that was coveted had leverage and could demand outrages prices for their star players (Eric Dickerson for one), and if you thought that player would get you to the Superbowl then you paid the price (Hershel Walker).

    With having FA you just sign the player you think will put you over the top, and you don't have to give up huge number of players or draft picks to do it, just a ton of money.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I don't know, given the Viking's luck with this, if he'd stayed it would be a crash and burn thing, he leaves he'll flourish, not that I'm wishing him bad luck, but he's not a Viking anymore so I don't really care how he does other than a conditional draft pick next year based on performance would have been nice (cushions the blow if he prospers) (may have also doomed his performance for this year). Picking a 4th round center with the 2nd round pick just made it seem like the Viking curse continues to live on.

    Here's what you do.

    Let's say you want a great kicker. So - make a QB with LOUSY QB skills but FABULOUS kicking skills. He'll cost next-to-nothing to sign and then you'll have a kicker with 99 at the kicking attributes when you slot him in to that spot.
