    I don't want them to get DE because if they did then it would confirm Marrdro's prediction.

    LOL.
    I haven't done to well at predicting this year.
    I went 8-8 on the Vikes during regular season.
    ;D

    Hell, I'm half a mind that they will draft 2 DE's in this draft.
    A RDE at 17 and then a Langford kindof guy at 4 or 5.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    >I would hate to see another wasted pick go to a DE!
    From 1995 to 2007 the Vikes have drafted 5 DE's in the first round and they all sucked!
    Duane Clemons had the best single season with 9 sacks.
    The others were in just the 4, 5 or zero range.
    Along with the worthless sack totals is the complete lack of durability.
    I just don't understand why we can't get a decent, durable end on our team that has already been proven! ??? :
    I say draft to keep AP going strong for years, meaning OL baby!
    Keep em' big and nasty up front!

    So you would rather see us draft a kicker than a DE?
    Wow.

    Also, keep in mind that sack totals are not the only meaningful way to measure a DE's performance, especially LDE...
    Just preparing you for draft day - I don't want you to blow a gasket when we draft our newest DE...

    yep..the only way we can solve our DE problems is if one of these guys miraculously becomes a star overnight, or we find somebody through trade/fa (fa no longer an option obviously)
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    RB would do it for me.. Why would you waste a first round pick on a RB when you have two starting quality RBs like Peterson and Taylor and a backup like Hicks?
