I rarely post here, but im always lurking. Love football, love the vikings, always fun to debate and toss around the possibilities, figured id share my opinion.im slighty intoxicated so bear with my grammar and spelling.
This year was completely unexpected by me, i thought with the talent wed brought in via the draft and FA we were sure to be in competition for the north crown. But as disappointing as this year has been its also positive, im pretty sure we had a good idea ponder was not it at QB. But i do think were in a good spot, i personally am for tanking, because itd be nice for once to at least have a shot at a decent QB when our season is already lost, im for tanking because i love this team, to me, id rather see us lose out to a lost season and improve then to be dealt a worse draft pick, it makes sense to me. If were out of playoff contention, our coaching staff is garbage, etc, why not improve our draft position.
That being said, as far as the draft goes, im for the QB first, with where we're looking at drafting 1st, im still on the johnny boat, i know the kid has questions, but in reality, im willing to bet hes leaps and bounds aheard of ponder. I think we do have a perfect situation with a solid vet at QB, bring in the young gun, give him some time, and focus on D the rest of the draft, that and Johnny has the star mentality, i think he would really brighten things up in Minnesota country, a definet spark. Either way its a gamble, but if he does fall to us, i say we take the chance on him, have him sit behind cassel next year and hopefully it pans out. Knock on wood but he cant be worse than ponder.
We may not be superbowl contenders next year, but god willing by the time the stadium opens we just may be.
Just my thoughts... btw if we could sneak in De'anthony thomas from oregon... him and CP84 would give us our threats for the next decade.
