If Dwight would of clean his act here in Minnesota, he would of still be on the team, but his immature got him into trouble with the law...

This is a bad move I think. Unless we get a good FA. Sammuel or maybe The one of the Giants

HJj, Samuel is a cornerback, and if Gibral Wilson hasn't been tagged, I think he will be.
There are still a handful of free agents who would be a definate upgrade from Smith. I think it will be a top priority and the safety position will be much better next year. Smith wasn't a quality starter.
This was a good move, regardless of Smith's troubles with the law.

Im glad a man who can't get us in the playoffs for two years actually knows what direction to go???? Maybe they should spend more time trying to figure out how to get rid of Troy Williamson.

Once again when you do not kowtow to Chilly, you are gone. Smith is a pain in the butt but he can play and Tank williams and Doss can not or will not due to age,injuries. Do not be suprised if our Safety position becomes a major problem

Good riddance. If we could land Assante Samuel and then slide Winield to safety we could upgrade two positions with one move. Give Chilly a chance. This is his make or brake year. Also, lets keep Williamson into training camp. He either makes it or not. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain if he can start catching the ball.

dwight smith was a bad role model, just like fred smoot who was part of the boat party that disrespected the staff of the boat, randy moss who ran into a traffic cop, and had weed. warren moon beat his wife and is now a drunk driver. HOW DOES MN get all these LOSERS? If you support them just because they can play a sport well, you have no morals. Simple as that.

I'd rather see the vikes go 0-18 than have a low lif like this guy on the team.

Chilli moves so slow that the cracks keep appearing. Pat W is 35 and 400 lbs. The wall is not far behind. Sharper is well on the wrong side of 30. No pash rush exists from the edge. The offense has an unresolved QB situation, a lack of wideouts, no pass catching TE and an aging offensive line. So many holes, so little time and Chili has all day.

Good chance at 0-16.
