    Vikings Fans

    Joining the bandwagon on making threads about midwest NFL teams, do we stand a chance?!?


    We lost Brad Johnson finally and looks like we'll get Greenway back. (Yes I know he was a hawkeye, but maybe he's learn from his errors) I'm pumped for Chester Taylor and Hutchinson again. If we can land Ashley Lelie, that would be great as well! I predict 8-8 or 9-7 at best next year.

    Re: Vikings Fans

    I don't know how many Vikings fans are around here and I refuse to post in the Green Bay thread.

    How are the Vikings looking for next year?

    I see they released Brad Johnson...who is their QB now?

    Re: Vikings Fans

    Traveris Jackson (not sure on the spelling)

    He has a rocket arm, but needs to work on footwork and accuracy, as well as game experience.

    I want Tavaris Jackson who they got in the second round last year, but it looks like they are going to draft Brady Quinn.

    Re: Vikings Fans

    Quinn would be AWESOME. He benched more than the average O-lineman benched at the combine. The guy is big and tough.

    I'd be excited about Quinn, moreso than Jackson. If he falls into the Viking's lap I'd be ****** if they don't take him.

    I hope we get Brady Quinn.

    Not to burst your bubble, but I saw or read somewhere that Lelie had signed with the 49ers. I agree he's exactly what the Vikings need, another speedster that's afraid to go over the middle...

    Re: Vikings Fans

    I'm not going to hold my breath being as the order is:

    1) Oakland - needs a QB, but will probably take Russel
    2) Detriot - They might be happy with Kitna
    3) Cle - They are in need of a lineman more than a QB, so they'll probably go with Joe Thomas from Wisconsin
    4) Tampa Bay- they have little WR talent, so they'll go with Calvin Johnson who is been phenominal in combines with a 4.3 40 time.
    5) AZ- good to go, have Leinert
    6) Washington - They could go for Quinn
    7) Minnesota



    So basically we gotta worry about Detriot and Washington or we have to trade up to get Quinn.

    Re: Vikings Fans

    I think Brady Quinn will be somewhat of a bust.

    Let's take Ted Ginn Jr and give Tavaris a little help. Brady Quinn (or any qb for that matter) won't do jack with the receiving core we have in place.

    Agreed. I'm 95% positive TB wants him and will take him.

    Yes he will be off the plate before Minnesota gets a chance at him.

    Yeah, let's get another track star. i.e. Troy Williamson (bust).
