Lots To Check Out On

Posted by Mike Wobschall on March 21, 2011 – 6:48 am

With the NFL in a work stoppage and the great action of college basketball’s March Madness, it’s understandable if you let a few updates on slip through the cracks over the weekend. But now that it’s Monday morning and a new week has begun, it’s time to get you caught up.

We’re here to help.

Mock Madness 2.0 is up and there are several notable changes to the mock drafts of NFL insiders.
— This week’s Monday Morning Mailbag tackles several topics, including the idea of trading Adrian Peterson (I fell off my chair when I first saw it, too) and a look at what other teams have received for trading back in the 1st round of the NFL Draft.
Last week’s edition of Vikings Weekly took a close look at new Vikings LBs coach Mike Singletary and current Vikings LB Jasper Brinkley.
Minnesota lost a football legend last week with the passing of former Vikings assistant coach and University of Minnesota Golden Gophers Head Coach Murray Warmath.
— NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to NFL players.

    Hey Mike I am with you 100 percent about trading Peterson in some type of rebuilding effort. Adrian Peterson is the face of the Vikings. Both Head Coaches have said success of the vikings begin and end with AP. It would be very bad to lose him.

    Is it just me, or does Singletary look uninterested, unenergetic, and possiby deppresed? Why are we getting this guy? He is no vikes fan. I think the coach should give this a second thought.

    How can you not be depressed when the future of football is completely uncertain and your team is threatening to move to another state?

    @parody … Im with you especially about the team moving , Minnesota has learned nothing in 40 years of sports … Minnesota shouldve had a plan for their best team 2 yers ago … Vikings moving is a bigger possibility than NFL missing games next year

    How can you predict the Vikings leaving with certainty?

    @Fred … I did not predict they would leave , what I said is there is more possibility that they leave than the NFL not having football next season

    Look, trading A.P. for a first round and a second round pick wouldn’t be that off the wall. If you look at it in these terms……….A.P. might have 2 or 3 years left in the “Prime” tank before we all start to see the decline that all of us football fans always see from a top flight running back. Well, the way I see it, his “Prime” years that he has left will all be in vain because this team will be in the cellar during that time! If we don’t make a few “BOLD” moves now, when A.P. starts on the decline….and he will, this team will still be hurting and we won’t even have a “Top” flight running back to boot!

    Faces of franchises change ever 5 or 6 years unless you have one of those “Rodgers” type QB’s that will be around for 10 or 15 years!

    Let’s build this team for the future, not hold on to a player because it makes you feel good, this “TEAM” is hurting !!!!!!

    Listening to nfl shows( Mike Mayock,etc.) runningback trades with teams and higher draft pick are very unlikely because of backs like A.Foster(HOU) later round back who lead the nfl in rushing.Teams will pass on AP if they have to give even close to a high 2nd unlike oldschool is thiking. A team thinking SB might take a 2nd in trade for AP but unlikely.The value AP has would be for the Vikes.How do u replace him and we still have free agency and the draft.

    When the QB poss. is in need any vet.QB and AP would make the off. go if S.Rice is resigned and give a C.Ponder a chance to sit behind that vetQB.Maybe a OT in free agency(trueblood,TB).DT or DE in draft .OT later round

    Are you kidding me trade A.P. for uncertain unproven draft picks,anybody thinking that is mentally challenged.He is the face of the franchise,if Favre would have done what he was supposed to 2 years ago,just manage the game and don’t take over/make mistakes, we would have a championship.If the Viking trade anything they should trade down to latter 1st round and pick up another 2nd round pick or {2} 3rd rounders.I have faith in Rick S.Leslie F.and Mike S. if those last 2 don’t know defensive talent who does?Look to the Hawkeyes for later round picks Clayborn,Sash and maybe Andy Dalton from TCU or Ponder in round 2.If the Vikings don’t secure a stadium in Minnesota they are definately mentally challenged,unless they move to Iowa you’ll lose the fan of a lifetime hence Vikelifer.I’ve taken the vows of fanship in sickness/last year,and in health/unknown,for better/unknown, or for worse/2 yrs ago.Maybe Favre can part with some of his money and drum up some support from former Vikings and get the money to secure a retractable roof stadium.

    Trade A.P. maybe , but I would surely put his name out there and entertain offers for him. OR

    Hire someone with a proven record as a head coach and G.M. that has rebuilt teams before and has also won SUPERBOWLS, he out there…
