George Paton Promoted To Assistant General Manager

Posted by Mike Wobschall on February 11, 2012 – 1:05 pm

The Vikings have announced that George Paton has been promoted to Assistant General Manager of the Club.

Over the past couple of weeks, the St. Louis Rams had courted Paton to serve as the Rams new General Manager.  Paton decided late Friday that he wanted to remain with the Vikings organization.

The promotion of Paton follows the recent promotion of Rick Spielman to his new role as General Manager, and both moves add stability to the Vikings front office as the team approaches an important offseason.

“George has been an integral part of our personnel department since he arrived in 2007,” Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said on Saturday.  “His work ethic, leadership , professionalism and keen eye for identifying talented football players will continue to be a major asset for our organization as we take on the challenges of competing in the NFC North and winning the Super Bowl.”

    WR Danny Coale Va Tech (FAST for 6′ and
    punted for team when punter was injured)
    SS Sean Richardson Vandy (in the same mold
    as Barron)
    SS Winston Guy Kentucky (played S-LB position

    Mike R we need to find somebody like Burfict to fire up the vikes defense. i think the vikes would have Winston Guy on the radar in the later rounds. Sean Richardson i can check with my sec guy, vandy had to play some tuff teams the last few years, interesting

  87. By Mike R. on Feb 11, 2012 | Reply

    If Burfict used his energy to play smart and when to control his emotions and not take stupid penalties, he would be more of a beast LB.
    As far as Richardson, Vandy played Alabama pretty tough in the first half. They got shut out 34-0 but had two missed FG in 1st half that seemed to let the air out their game.

    LOL … article on Vontaze Burfict

    “Deep into the fourth quarter on a steamy night in Athens, Ga., the score was tied. The player Georgia coach Mark Richt would later say “should be playing in the (NFL) right now” saw from his middle linebacker spot that the defensive front was lined up incorrectly. So he did the unthinkable.

    As the umpire walked away after marking the ball ready for play, Burfict pushed the official into the Georgia line of scrimmage to stop the play and allow the defense to reset.

    Looks like

    So if Burfict puts up a good 40 he might jump into the top 10

    Here are a few facts– prove otherwise:

    War of 1848- 2 year war with Mexico– entered into under a Democratic President

    SOME OF THE BIGGEST WARS USA IN– EVER:
    World War One– Woodrow Wilson ran on the promise we would not enter the Great War– well, he did enter us with a huge PR campaign– look it up– very crafty and clever with hundreds if not thousands doing PR– oops, he was a Democrat

    World War Two– Oops, FDR– a democrat – some believe he entered the war to create jobs to end the great depression and there is a lot more of interest — possible foreknowledge of the attacks at Pearl Harbor, and other not so endearing affiliations which we will let be at the moment.

    Korean War, wait a minute, yep, a Democrat, Truman– war ended under the next president, Eisenhower– yep, a Republican.

    Vietnam War, – after a slow progressive build-up of military advisers, JFK increased the number until it was full blown war under LBJ- both Democrats, a Republican ran on the promise of getting us out– he did. While a Republican president was sitting when our first advisers went in, it was microscopic- hundred of advisers– under Kennedy the number went well over 10,000 and then it took off.

How do we know that WMDs were not taken to Syria while we came from the South. Turkey wouldn’t let us cut off the route to Syria. There has been no proof of lying about WMD.

However, that has not stopped us from being militaristic – both world wars, Korea, Afghanistan, etc. I share your disdain for most politicians – they seem to be more interested in getting re-elected than doing what is best for the country. We both live in countries that have the worst form of government – democracies! When I was younger, I thought that the best form of government was a benevolent dictatorship. I now believe that that only leads inevitably to authoritarian regimes. Nothing else works as well as a democracy, in terms of respecting individual rights – but I am sure you already believe that.

    From Sept 9, 2001 through today, not one terrorist plot has occurred on American soil, despite all of Bush’s “mistakes.” We must be very confident and naive to believe there were not dozens if not hundreds of plots to revisit 9-11 on our shores. How do you fight an enemy you do not see? This is not conventional war on a battleground. No, this is not the war of our forefathers where armies stand face to face. No, “mistakes” were made. You must “see” your enemy before he attacks in today’s world. Yes. Few realize how close 9-11 came to destroying this country– another one may not be survivable.
    Obama, while promising to reverse many of Bush’s mistakes, has not thoroughly done so. By the way, Shawn, so great is the killing of Osama? Had Bush done it, you would have spun it like this– we had no right to invade a sovereign nation, not notify their authorities, and kill a man without trial. HA! That is Truth!

    Shawn, putting it in your words, be thankful someone did murder to keep you free to spew your hate of the military. You have shown your true self, hope you can live with yourself knowing men have died for your freedom to hate, and that you like taking a dump on them whenever you feel like it.

    Yes Shawn I do agree that are freedoms and liberties are being taken away from us, the difference between us is I think it is both parties sticking it to us.

    No Shawn, I do not want you locked up for speaking or thinking what you do, I just want you to think before you say hateful things about people who disagree with you.

    God Bless you my man and have a great night.

    also you got me a little … your right my murder comment holds truth but is slightly unfare and wasnt said exactly the way Im thinking.

    clearly killing alqauda is completely fair and should not be considered murder. so there ya go

    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people living life in peace

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people sharing all the world

    You, you may say
    I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one

I do not like it when I am not given that same right, and to be respected for my views as I respect yours, I do not think it is right to be called murder, that I want people to die, that I am a war monger because I am a conservative and that we believe only the truly needy should get help from the state and that war is necessity sometimes, Though it should be the last resort.

    From the One and Only PuckerTrucker:
    I would be greatly elated if Randy Moss and the Vikings could settle their differences. 1 Because Randy Moss is the greatest receiver in Viking history, and Chris Carter was his mentor. 2 Moss still can out jump any cornerback in the league. 3 Moss deserves to go out a Minnesota Viking when his career ends I truely believe that Moss has had a soul serching experience and realizes that to be somebody you have to listen and pay attention and your life will turn around. 4 So this last message is for the Vikings GM and Coaching staff, Give Mr. Randy Moss a chance to sit down and have a talk with you I truely believe that he can be what your team needs on Offense, and the Vikings is what Randy Needs a Team that Truely believes in his abilities again like you did in 1998 you won’t be sorry for bringing him back. Give him a chance of a life time for both the Vikings and Randy Moss. Long live the Viking Magic once again
