    I was thinking that before the draft. When I saw that Mike Alstott II was drafted by the Vikings, I **** my pants.

    Re: Vikes sign last draft pick

    comparing him to Mike Alstott is selling him short, I think. Toby is capable of so much more than that. Mike Alstott never rushed for a thousand yards in a season. Mike Alstott never had a 1000 yard rushing season. He only scored double digit rushing TD's once. I'm not saying that Toby is going do those things right out of the gate, but he certainly has the potential.

    Is there an echo in here?

    Vikings just keep adding to their already loaded offense.

    This is a joke right? Comparing a player who has never played an NFL snap to a 6 time probowler, 3 time all-pro and then saying that's selling him short? Childress's offense is single-back most of the time, so comparing him to a fullback makes no sense. Everyone just wants to compare every power-running white halfback to Alstott. Let Gerhart stand on his own footing. He's a power-running halfback who will play a lot of short yardage downs and spelling Adrian. Besides he's 20 lbs lighter than Alstott and a step faster.
