    You bring up a good point in there my friend.......Three people learned from this......

    a. The cat has the athleticism to make great plays when asked. For Ponder, when the time comes (and it will) he has that little play running around in the back of his head now that says I can chuck it up and someone can make a play.

    b. The other cat (Cook) has this little play running around in the back of his head so when he is in this position again, he won't relax and just think (hey I have great position on this guy) but will still be aggressive and go get the ball the way he should have done on this one.


    Which leads me to the 3rd cat......., (I remember a great play by Sidney when he reached over a Giants head and took a sure fire INT way that resulted in a TD. )

    c. Its nice for me as a fan to know that we have another guy on the squad that knows how to make a play even if the ball isn't thrown perfect cause sometimes the situation is going to dictate that we take a chance and hope for a play.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

Why bring the guy in for 1 year only to have to bid for his services after that. Its a terrible way to build a team. Look at all the Cbs we brought in. We have starters on 1 year contacts on all level of the team. When they excel that means we will have to be bidding to keep or starters not to mention extending players that deserve it. You will run into salary cap hell or continously be losing key starters to FA. Either way, you won't be a good team. Can you name a team that was in the bottom 6 teams in the nfl that has taken a 1 year deal approach to all of their free agents? I'll wait!
    It may not be a terrible strategy, signing a bunch of 1 yrs. If some of these guys do have breakout years, we may have to pay more to retain them than we would if they were signed to multi years, but if someone else decides to out bid us on a few of these guys, we will pick up a few compensatory picks to help in the next draft. Maybe that is Rick's plan all along.
