Trade Bait

The Texans are interested in trading down from number 1 according to http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000337770/article/houston-texans-reportedly-trying-to-trade-no-1-pick.

So that brings to question should the Vikings make an effort to trade with them? What would be acceptable compensation? Who would we move up for? Are they worth it?

What are your guys opinions on these questions?

  1. I had a vivid dream we drafted Johnny Menziel. Seriously– and strange, cause I don’t have many dreams about football. And his name was written out in my dream– it was very vivid. I like Bridgewater, though.

  2. In the last 10 years how many playoff appearances did QB’s outside of the 1st round generate? Here are the results.
    7th round- 0
    6th round- 1 (Joe Webb)
    5th round- 1 (Matt Cassel)
    4th round- 0
    3rd round- 8 (6 by Russell Wilson, Matt Schaub 1, Nick Foles 1)
    2nd round- 10 (Andy Dalton 3, Kaepernick, 6, Tarvaris Jackson 1)
    1st round- 82…

    30% chance of even getting just a playoff appearance outside of the first round. Should we still wait?

  3. Titus give us a one word clue as to what happened to the plane. You claim to have intel but show no proof. Once the news comes out it will be easy for you to say “I knew that!” and buffalo us all. I’m calling you out bro! Just one word!

  4. I’ve been scarce lately, but for good reason. I am converting the space above the bar into basically a big ass private residence, complete with its own address and separate entrances. A ton of work, but when its done, my special guests(VFB bloggers, and bands I like, oh and friends/family) can stay above the bar. Ahh, I can see it now, fishing/boating all day on lake siskiyou, catch a live show at night at the bar, and then the afterparty…….YES!!!

    The bar was built in the 1880s, and the upstairs used to be a brothel and casino.

  5. I just want everyone to know that my beavers, despite what Titus says, had nothing to do with bringing down that plane. They take synthetic oil. It costs me more, but it gives their coats a nicer sheen.

  6. Parody– read your article again– can also– are key words for you!
    But overall, this article lacks the full weight of what the petrodollar means– once the US dollar is no longer used for the petro, you can expect some very high inflation– our currency will be worthless.

    Petrodollar
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    A petrodollar is a United States dollar earned by a country through the sale of its petroleum (oil) to another country.[1] The term was coined in 1973 by Georgetown University economics professor, Ibrahim Oweiss, who recognized the need for a term that could describe the dollar received by petroleum exporting countries (OPEC) in exchange for oil.
    The term petrodollar should not be confused with petrocurrency which refers to the actual national currency of each petroleum exporting country.
    In addition to the United States petrodollar, a petrodollar can also refer to the Canadian dollar in transactions that involve the sale of Canadian oil to other nations.
    Large inflow of petrodollar in a country often has an impact on the value of its currency. For Canada it was shown that an increase of 10% in the price of oil increases the Canadian dollar value versus the US dollar by 3%[2] and vice versa.

  7. It’s a good thing you explained that, NWV, as evidenced by this verse in ” Waltzing Matilda ”

    Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
    Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
    And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled:
    “Who’ll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me?”

    Down came a jumbuck to drink at that billabong.
    Up jumped the swagman, boned his hot wife and grabbed him with glee.
    And he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag:
    “You’ll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me.”

    • This is the sign of a great head coach. Grant had mastermind coordinators. Dennis Green had his offense clearly in the mind of a genius. Great leaders choose great supporting casts and delegate the day to day while they ensure the overall perspective is maintained and achieved. I think we are going to have some fun years ahead.
