Everyone please stop with the QB threads

Do any of you pay attention to the way this team has run in the last 3 seasons? Childress and Spielman are of the mind that QB is a relatively less important position on the field compared to the lines on offense and defense. QB has never been a high priority since letting Culpepper go. This is a team that plans to win by running the ball 55-60% of the time and having the better defense on the field. That means as long as those two are running the show, forget about having a sexy quarterback that will cost cap space. Even if they get one, they'll only get to throw 40-45% of the downs.  So just forget it.

Based on the last 3 seasons with respect to draft picks and usage of cap space, we've learned the front office prioritizes the following in order:

1. Offensive Line

1A. Defensive Line

3. Linebacker and Secondary

4. Running back

5. Wide Receiver/Tight End

6. Quarterback

7. Special Teams - You could even debate that given Longwell's contract, Special Teams should be 6. 

If you want to speculate, look at the last 3 years.  The Vikings are probably going to draft a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round if they don't think Booty will ever prosper in the NFL. Then Gus and Jackson will battle in training camp. This is not a team that has used cap space on a QB and I don't expect them to this offseason either.  If you have your hopes up for anything more, you're in for a massive disappointment. 

In the meantime, the more pressing question is who will be our Center and Right Tackle in 09 because I better not be seeing Ryan Cook at either position.  Let's discuss that in this thread please.
