    Why the love?

    Ok we have the multiple player X is a FA/will be released so lets pick him up threads. Some have some some legit reasons to be looked at. But what i don't get is the love for players who can't stay healthy. Why are we even debating this issue? who many times to we have to be burned by these guys before people just start saying "no thanks". Tank Williams, Marcus
    Robinson, Mike Doss to name a few recent bigger name FA that we have picked up with injury histories and now we are having a discussions over guys like Javon Walker, Brian Kelly, Chad Pennington Javon Kearse. Are we that desperate for help at some positions that we should look at anyone even if they cannot stay healthy? How does that in any way help our team? Everyone gets a freak injury and then is fine but guys that start getting injury after injury, tends to stay a pattern. So the logic of "he would be a great fit If he is healthy" should not even be a consideration. Tank, Robinson and Doss also fit into that category at one time and look where it got us.

    Re: Why the love?

    Usually if a FA is discused here, within 3 posts someone will say "Let's sign him".

    Hell, they are having discussions about signing players that won't even see FA or will be tagged.

    Hey man,
    How long has Doss and Tank been on the team? 1-2 years. Have they even been given much playing time?
    Why not give them enoug time. I remember the game Sharper was knocked out of Doss came in and played well. You can't blame a guy from not producing without playing time. What didn't you like about them this year? Were they too slow handing out water bottles?

    Why don't you mention the healthy guys wer signed that did crap? Holcomb, Bollinger..shall i go on.

    Why not give them enoug time.
    The reason they have not had any playing time is because they are hurt. kind of hard to play when you are hurt.


    I remember the game Sharper was knocked out of Doss came in and played well. You can't blame a guy from not producing without playing time.

    I also remember us having to look at the waiver wires for safeties because they were both hurt and Smith was hurting.

    What didn't you like about them this year? Were they too slow handing out water bottles?

    Do you really think either of them will be on the roster next year? Any reason as to why? especially Tank

    Why don't you mention the healthy guys wer signed that did crap? Holcomb, Bollinger..shall i go on.

    Why, probably because that is not what the thread is about. Shall I go on?



    I also remember us having to look at the waiver wires for safeties because they were both hurt and Smith was hurting. How many years does Tank need to get healthy? 2 years on the Vikings and he has played how many games?

    Wouldn't it be a real drag if we were all the same? It's fun to speculate in the offseason and if we all thought the same there would be nothing to discuss, or disagree on.

    Hey man you know the coach can't play them when they are hurt don't you.
    Google thier names and check out the injury reports before you start laying this at the coaches feet for cripes sake.

    With that said, please don't go on.

    Tank played this year and played well the times he wa son the field. I'm not blaming the coaches( quick to defend aren't you) I'm just saying we should evauate them when they are healthy. To avoid a guy with an injury concern because of your history with injured players is idoitic. In fact AD wouldn't be a Viking his your logic!

    So under your thinking it was stupid for the Vikings to draft Adrian Peterson right?
    He was injured in college numerous times.
    You need to give guys chances to stay healthy.
    Look at Robert Smith.
    He was injured for most of his early career.
    Then, he became a very good back once he could stay on the field.
    Some guys can just play and those are the guys you need.

    Defend hell, just pointing out an obvious error in your post.
    ;D

    By he By.........What the hell does you last sentence mean?
    AD was evaluated by our medical staff and deemed healthy.
    The guys we are talking about are the same ones that are evaluated byour medical staff and deemed not healthy.
    Probably why they are being allowed to hit the FA market.

    Find me a place were my "LOGIC" says anything to the contrary.

    My last sentance should have read. AD would not have been a Viking with his logic. You weren't the OP so i didn't direct it to you. However, Do you really think our medical staff didn't evauate Doss and Tank? The OP said we should avoid these type of players. With that logic, we would have avoided AD.
