    I live near San Francisco, I know a lot about the how good peterson can be, but for 18+million , and with a 50-50 chance of reaggravating the injury. Bad deal. Pass on him like wind on a solar power windmill

    I agree. I'm glad someone finally gave some perspective to our signings. Maybe this will stop the complaining that's been going on about the Vikes not signing a big name guy!

    I think it should be the other way around. Get the best backers you can get. Backers are the leaders of the defense.

    yeah, but linemen control the running game and put pressure on the QB so they control the defense the LBs just sit back and finish what the linemen dont do

    Couldn't agree more. It was mentioned in the second thread about Peterson that the Vikings feel that the D-Line should do the grunt work, and we can get away with using mid-level Linebackers who will provide more value. While I like that philosophy, I think a Stud MLB is of absolute necessity if you want a good defence.

    Look at Baltimore: Ray Lewis led that defence for years. He was the face of a fearsome D that basically won the Superbowl for that franchise. You can say whatever you want about him being on the decline and that Ed Reed is now the premier defender on that team, but Lewis is still a top class Middle Linebacker.

    Look at Chicago: Brian Urlacher. Absolutely dominant in 2005. If the (Teddy) Bears hadn't rested their starters against us they'd have more than likely walked off with all manner of regular season defensive records.

    Those are the only 2 examples I can be bothered to list, but y'all get my point. :razz:
