    Wouldnt it be nice to have a safety 1/2 as good as Robert Griffith right now, what a thumper he was with some interception ability ….

    I remember when Robert Griffith knocked Emmitt Smith out Thanksgiving Day ten years ago. Emmitt admitted it was the hardest hit he’d ever taken in a game.

    I do think our d-backs are improving. However Antoine Winfield is probably coming to the end of his career pretty soon. So it has to be a very high priority in the draft. Perhaps Marcus Sherels can put on some weight in the off-season. He certainly has the speed. He had the Vikings only interception in the Pre-Season.

    Remember that we have 2 young guys at CB right now. Chris Cook has been having injury problems setting him back, but the coaches had high expectations from him, and Asher Allen is in his second year and starting to look decent with all of the reps he’s getting. Griffin is still a question as to whether he can keep healthy for an entire season, but with that lineup I doubt that we will be looking into corners in this year’s draft if Winfield sticks around.

    I’d be happier if they do something to shore up the safety positions. Any time that corners get beat deep, our current safeties are too slow to compensate, so they get beat as well. So I agree with the earlier comment that we could use a safety who will be making players hurt.

    Looking at player contracts, we have a good chunk of guys whose deals are up this year. I’m hoping that we are able to re-sign Greenway, Rice, and either Ray Edwards or Brian Robison. But that still leaves us losing a starting QB, FB, DT, OLB, FS and K. Backup players leaving include a QB, WR, T, DE, DT, CB and SS.

    So for our first 3 draft choices (currently a round 1 and two round 2s), I’d pick a QB, then a Safety and an Offensive lineman. I think we have enough talent at OLB to replace Leber with someone younger. Guion’s looking like a decent choice to replace Pat, but we’ll probably want one more DT in the draft somewhere, hopefully with the 4th round pick. From there, I think that the rest can be filled in relatively decently with later drats and free agency.

    Surprisingly, we are pretty set for a while at CB. Griffin, Cook AND Winfield are all signed through 2013, with A.Allen through 2012. I don’t know if Winfield will last that long, but it’s still something that can be taken care of in free agency for the time being.

    Or is it Longwell? Either way, it sucks…

    Robert griffith was great fun to watch, he had heart ,something thats missing from this years team, with the exception of ap and percy.
    Cook will be great if he can stay healthy!

    I think we do need to load up on corners and safeties. Klewe isn’t going anywhere, they’ll sign him. Antoine can hopefully stay healthy for 2 more years. Cedric Griffen will hopefully, fully recover by training camp and have a great season in 2011. Drafting a QB is usually pretty iffy, but this year could have a qualtiy group with Luck, Chappell, Newton, and others. Scott Studwell and our next GM will have a lot to deal with.

    What if the Vikings trade their first round draft pick with someone else? Wouldn’t that be a sour feeling?

    Justin – You’re forgetting that Childress is gone, so those types of “sour feelings” are likely to be gone with him ;)

    Marcus Sherels will work hard enough to crack the Vikings roster next year.

    Purple Parody, I agree with your draft selection process, with the exception of quarterback. Favre won’t be back next year, and I do not think the Vikings will have a high, high choice this year. Therefore we should draft d-backs, and linemen first. A quality veteran Qb should be obtained thru free agency or even a trade.

    I understand your position Frederick, but I’m just getting tired of depending on QBs who are at the end of their career. I’d like to be rooting for a franchise QB for a solid decade, and it sounds like there are a lot of good choices in the upcomming draft.

    I don’t know why people are asking for Luck – I read up on a few of the top prospects and he is unlikely to even join the draft cláss yet since he is just in his Sophõmore year. But from the guys I read about, Ponder appears to have the most upside for QBs that will still be available by the time our selection comes.

    We have 2 second rounders and Philly will resign Vick to big money, so they will have 2 QBs on the roster making starter salary … maybe we work something for Kevin Kolb …

  16. By PurpleParody on Dec 1, 2010 | Reply

    What do we have that’s worth trading for Kolb? Do you think that they’d take McKinnie and/or a draft pick?

    And do you think that they’re content to re-sign Vick even though he is nearing the twilight of his career? It seems like a more prudent choice to go with the QB that will run the team for a significantly longer time. Kolb was the starter over Vick until he got injured….Vick just had some good games to allow him to keep the position since Kolb got healthy.
