Of the many decisions the Vikings brass have made this offseason, three really stand out as wise moves. The C.I.A and shrewd business people everywhere know that signing talent away from your competition is a valuable way to gain an advantage. This is how I view the acquisition of Greg Jennings. Not only was he the packers best receiver when not injured, he is clutch, and always played well against us. Now the bad man can’t hurt us anymore.
The other big headline grabber was the first round of our draft. With us selecting Floyd, Rhodes, and Patterson. Gotta admit it, Spielman has some big cajones. All three of these guys could be impact players immediately, though Patterson may take a bit of time. If your plan is to build a good young team through the draft, three first rounders can’t hurt. Moving on….
Trading Harvin, not signing hurtlacher, and drafting a punter! So these I group together as personell choices that speak to Frasier and Spielmans vision of what they think makes a great football team. No drama, no hurt old dudes, and we will flip the field on you at any time. I may be in the minority, but I thought drafting Locke in the fifth round was brilliant. Best set of kickers in the NFL anyone? So with that, what do YOU think?
