My name is Dan and I bleed purple and gold.
I just wanted to say hello as a new member and share some of my opinions on the Vikings recent moves.
1. I like the signing of Cassel. We needed a leader in our qb roster and if you watched closely last year, Matt would light a fire in our offense that Ponder just didn't have the balls to do.
2. I also like the resigning of Sherels. I did see improvement in game and he is one of the best punt returners in the league.
3. I think we should get rid of Cook and Allen. I love Allen but he is only good for pass rushing. In todays league, DEs need to drop back sometimes into coverage and play LBs. Cook is just a baby who can't stay healthy plus there are so many free agent DBs out there that we will sign one and be fine.
4. I think Zimmer will be a success as head coach. His personality is perfect for coaching football players. He doesn't take shit from anybody and expects only the best out of any player. I think is he just the motivation this team has needed for a long time. (I was at the game where everyone held up "Fire Chilly" signs haha)
I cannot wait to start commenting and meeting fellow VIkings fans!
