I thought the season was over last week. i thought we had a small window of opportunity to reach the playoffs.
Boy was i wrong.
Now that the season is officially done for us Vikings fans, now is the time to start thinking about the future:
Head Coach: FIRE childress, put in Lezlie Frazier, and see how he does the remainder of the season.
QB:Get rid of Favre, keep Webb, and draft a Quarterback in the first or second round.
RB: sign Adrian Peterson to a longer contract. I cant see him playing for another team. i just cant. keep Gerhart as the third-down back, and get a better third-stringer RB for protection.
WR: sign Sidney Rice to a long-term deal. Dump Bernard Berrian by either trading him for a third or fourth round pick, and try to find a deep threat WR.
TE: keep Shaincoe, keep Jimmy, dump Dugan
Secondary: get rid of Madeiu Willaims by either trading him or releasing him. Find another good Saftey to replace Williams.
i think the QB position is the highest priority going into the offseason. we need to stop getting washed-out quarterbacks that really need to retire (Brad Johnson, Gus Frerotte...) and develop a first or second rounder into our QB of the Future. Joe Webb is a good quarterback, but he is not ready to step into the starting role. Tavaris Jackson has had his time here in Minnesota run out. he really hasnt done anything good for us and i think he is a failed attempt at development.
