The idea of Eric Decker in purple is an excellent one..........Vikes should try everything in their power to lure him there..........be kind of hard though if Denver doesn't want to let him go....doubt they would want to..........

Maybe Vikes should take a look at Cousins as well..........I think he is a FA but even if not(provided he looks good the last 3 games of this season) Vikes may want to trade for him.............skins' lack draft picks and may give Cousins away for below market value to stockpile a pick.....................that way Vikes can address LB, secondary issues or the other dozen areas they need help in....................they definitely have to piggyback FA and draft if they want to contend next season in that division..............

Forget Cousins, trade for Luck, Megatron, and Allen from San Diego

The Vikes are going to be playing in a crappy college football stadium for the next few years, not to mention the cold weather games.

They are going to lose many vet FA (most suck anyway). Coaches arein question. They have no defense at all. They have no QB. AD is hurt all the time. I think it will be really hard for this team do attract any “help” before the new stadium is ready and the team is rebuilt.

Yeah GB, Last Sundays game in the snow was a small preview for the new guys of what they are in for the next two years. What the heck, I have waited so long for the Vikes to have a consistent SB caliber team, whats another two years? Lol. My philosophy is to spend the next two years building a competitive team to field in time for the new stadium opening. This " put a band-aid on to win right now " approach has not worked. I think the last couple drafts have started the rebuild, but more is needed.

They have a great start in the past 2 drafts. Very good LT, Harrison is awesome, Flashy is looking good, Rhodes shows promise. They need someone to build around though and it is not AD -to old to injured.

If they do not get one of the top QBs in the draft they should not reach again... wait another year... go 1-15 to make it a sure thing! Besdies the staduim will probably be delayed a year or 2 while the vikes play in London.:)

He will age quickly in the snow and freezing rain outside in Minnecrapolis
He also will be a fumbling machine

That might be a good move EVF
Its time for Leslie Failure to move on

I was being sarcastic actually..........I'm on the fence about LF..........it's obvious he has his players playing hard at a time when teams' sometimes pack it in..........but his choice of coordinators and the QB carousel were suspect..........gotta be careful with that lather rinse repeat cycle in terms of hiring firing coaches all the time..........doesn't work(generally)..no continuity..........take the 'skins for instance..........7 coaches in 15 years and in that time they have a below .500 record overall..........
