Building through the draft. Not Free Agency. Why didnt we trade Hutch for a pick? Even if it was in the later rounds. Could've gotten some thing for him at least. I with you Avant with not drafting a T or G in the first. We need playmakers. WR in the first!

The Vikings sign Rosenfels & the Bears sign Marshall Tell me Was Rosenfels one of the Vikings priorities Was they so afraid someone would sign him that they had to sign him now. They should be signing a CB now

whoh, whoh, guys. We signed free agents Guion & John Carlson, too. Guion played DT last year for the Vikings & couldn't beat out Remi Adolye & John Carson was a TE for Seattle. Had to look that up.(never a good sign)

Rosenfels was cheap,
Webb? Could be coming into his own.
Ponder, they are sold on.

there are only 4 or 5 teams with more cap room than us, I think they are saving their money for the draft.

Speilmen is betting the farm that the draft is the way to go.

I think we're required to spend a certain amount. Are we close to that?

On Rosenfels, i just think the vikes should have as a 3rd QB a developmental guy, not someone who's not part of the present or future.

On Spielman, I'm sure he'll sign some guys. Just there's no big rush for players to come visit us. Unfortunate we haven't gone at a corner, yet.

PF - got to thinking about something tonight. What if Webb is going to be used as a WR? Then the Vikings could bring in a 3rd QB as a project and still have Webb as a back up if needed.

Besides if we do find another QB that is better than Rosenfels, just cut him!

I guess Webb is having a problem with learning the offensive plays that Or the vikings dont think Ponder will last the full Season. Why would they bring in Rosenfels other wise.. Webb is in his 3rd year He may not have played many games But he sure should know the offense by now right If Ponder gets hurt like last year The Year is over with Webb or Rosenfels, at QB.. By now Webb should know this offense as well as Rosenfels,& if he doesnt let him go I say.. Webb didnt show he could be WR not even a 3rd wideout & he sure isnt a good Backup & if something does happens to Ponder. look who the Vikes have Bad choices the Both of them Any QB after being in the NFL 3 years the Vikes shouldnt need a 3rd QB in case someone is hurt They could deal with that IF that ever happens . many teams go with two QBs. Webb & Rosenfels is a waste of roster space I know there cheap pay But what does the matter if none of the Two can give the team a winning chance at a season if Ponder is hurt. Wouldnt a Rookie do as well That maybe someday be a starter or someone that could compeat with Ponder for the Job because Webb or Rosenfels,cant I dont like bringing in players that isnt worth keeping the Next year also These Two Guys are a waste of roster space The Vikes have the Two worst backup QB in the NFL Both at best is a 3rd string QB & No Help to the team .

no, Vikes said Webb's gonna be only a QB & that he's gonna compete with Ponder for the starting job, so i find the re-signing of Sage to be curious. Spielman just loves sage.
