Last word on Mallett/Another reason to hate Brad Childress

Alright, this is going to be a semi-rant from a generally optimistic guy.  First off I wasn't thrilled with our pick of Ponder in the first round.  I don't hate Ponder but I hate the lack of value we got out of that pick and I know I'm not the only one around here who thinks that way.  Not a  big deal because I really liked our second round pick of Kyle Rudolph and I was starting to feel much better about our draft.  The one thing bugging me was that the QB I thought was the best in the draft was sliding pretty far and I was ready to accept that maybe all those off-field issues were for real and Mallett really wasn't worth the risk in the first two rounds.  Started to feel more confident in our QB choice when a few things happened and brought me back to being pissed.

Honestly, I probably wouldn't be pissed off right now if any other team picked Mallett in the third round other than the Patriots.  Still you might say that the Patriots had tons of picks to waste so why not gamble?  Okay, I buy that, but then I hear Michael Lombardi state that Mallett was actually the top rated QB in the draft on the Patriots board. So my favorite QB in the draft is picked by a great team that already has Tom Brady by Bill Belicheck( generally considered a pretty smart coach) with what was coincidentally  the third round pick Childress gave him for Mr. Randy Moss.  This all brings me back to yet another reason for why I hate Brad Childress even if this series of events is only loosely connected to him! Okay, that's it for me bitching about the QB we could've had for a much cheaper cost with what turned out to be our own 3rd rounder that Chilly pissed away.  Ummmm..... end of rant.....Go Ponder ! : )

 

P.S. I kinda have the feeling that Belicheck has re-payed Childress, and by proxy Vikings fans, about a thousand fold over with the Moss trade and drafting of Mallet for Childress'  excessive bragging over stealing that injury prone TE off NE's practice squad a few years back.  Man, I hope Ponder is every bit as good as FSUViking thinks or this draft might frustrate me for a long time.
