    Re: McNabb to Minnesota

    Ugh. Why do my Vikings rely on semi-past their prime QBs? Favre, Cunningham, McMahon, Gannon, George, Moon....who am I leaving out?

    Re: McNabb to Minnesota

    I like it, although I think it's a move 2 years to late. Having a QB like McNabb should prove to at least make the Vikings competitive in the North, even against the Lions. I just hope this keeps Rice in Minnesota.

    At least Ponder doesn't have a problem with it. He has a good attitude towards this.

    McNabb is there to tutor Ponder for a year or two. If he is healthy,I think he can win some games for them.

    He just dodged a bullet this season. He was lucky to get a copy of the playbook after he was drafted, but he hasn't had the time to work with the coaches or offense to figure out the nuances. I know they said he was a fast learner, but 1 month to prep for a season where he has to play the Super Bowl Champs twice, the NFC runners-up twice and the up-and-coming Lions twice is not enough time.

    Re: McNabb to Minnesota

    The most important players on the roster this year are Harvin and Peterson.

    ugh ... another "like the player ... hate the team" scenario. I was really conflicted when Sage was there.

    This. The Vikings shouldn't be counting on McNabb being a dependable starter for any more than three years, and I don't think they have in mind anything otherwise. Ponder is simply not going to be ready to start in year one. McNabb can start from day one in Minnesota, and let Ponder learn with clipboard in hand.

    Same old story with the Vikes. At least it makes a little bit more sense this time considering the lockout.

    Re: McNabb to Minnesota

    This would have made way more sense two years ago before the Wranglered-one arrived. It will be good for Ponder to learn from him, if Ponder is indeed our future. Need to let AP drive the offense and hope Harvin is available all year long. McNabb has a lot of game left with the right team.

    I'd stick Harvin and Rice as 2a and 2b. Both need to figure out how to stay healthy because the receiving corp after them is a HUGE dropoff.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: McNabb to Minnesota

    Where did Childress come from again? Wasn't he his offensive coordinator for a number of years?

    I hate the Vikings.
