Danny..it would enhance our chances of getting Andrew Luck (Stanford QB) who has the best college arm since Flacco.....the only silver lining I can see for this disasterous year.,.Green Bush Packwad Football Team actually did us a favor, same as they did Dallas...forced action by a reluctant owner...
Go Vikes.
Say Andy is Stanford the place that the Vikes got that superstar RB that cant block and coughed the ball up Sunday vs. the Pack????.....what's his name, oh yeah Toby Gerhart!!!!!Sure,lotsa Luck with that one.

Getting Luck would be awesome. Any thoughts on Jake Locker or Kellen Moore?
Locker reminds me of Rothlisberger and Moore a little like Brees when he was at Purdue only he is a lefty...will that offensive mindset translate to a traditional pocket/play action pro style offense?
Luck reminds me of Flacco, I watched him rip Southern Illinois in a 1AA playoff game..his arm was so strong that he twice threw through SI defenders arms...Luck has a big time arm, has been coached up right by Harbough, and essentially due to the offense he plays in is probably more pro ready...also Landry down at Oklahoma seems to have overcome the shoulder issues.
Daniels in Missouri has gotten nicee reviews but he just looks like a college QB.
The kid in Nevada has a surprisiingly big time arm and we will see how he stacks up this Friday when Boise and Nevada meet...decent test for Moore as well until bowls...
TCU has another one who has been under the radar as well but hasn't played against anyone but Utah lately...very nice arm and pocket presence as well..

I like Gerhardt and still think he will develop as a pro RB..fumbling can be corrected and occasionally the D gets the ball...they get paid to play too..and that was a decent hit.
I like him better than Forte if that is what you are alluding too..Forte has peaked, but that comparison doesn't work well as their roles are different...and Gerhardt runs hard everytime he gets the ball...I like that too.
If I was you BF, I would be more concerned in the fact that your Bears have not drafted one significant offensive player in the last 6 years...I love D but that will catch up with you after a while...
You should concern yourself with what the beloved have in front of them rather then what is happening here...I live in the Chicago area (Palatine) but only hang and post on a relevent site to my rooting interest..Vikings.
Didn't see you here last year when the Bearlies were in bad shape...you are dangerously close to being lumped in with the Green clad twerps from up north...nothing better to do? Like I pointed out, without Hester the Bears probably struggle more this year, eventually they will have to deal with normal field position and then you can see what you have...until then, ride the D as long as you can and hopefully get some help from Atlanta...you got Philly an Vick coming this week...have fun with that.

The date is November 6th 2005, midway through the 4th quarter and Pittsburgh has just scored a touchdown making the score 20-10 Steelers. Packer fans started exiting Lambeau field in scores. The Steelers would go on to win by that same score dropping the Packers to 1-7. Don't start talking classless unless you've looked in the mirror.
It's easy being a fan when the team is winning.
Not to mention killing a coaches dog in front of their kids...I wonder if the Devine family will ever forget their wonderful years in bucolic Green Bush...Apparently the Mike Vick of pro ball fans...

Killing the coaches dog in front of their kids is an acceptable behavior for a Packer fan. They wait all year for something to give them meaning and that's where the Packers come in. Without the Packers what would they do in "Gods Country"? Drink!!!

Thanks, Andy. Buffalo won't regret picking Luck this April (damn it). Maybe Minnesota gets Locker, who knows. Moore can enter the draft this year but I don't recall him saying one way or the other. I almost forgot about Landry. Ryan Mallet is another one getting some sports writer love. Should be a good year for drafting a QB.

Nope! Leslie just issued a statement on WCCO news that Farve will be his starting QB against the Washington Redskins next Sunday.
What I meant was he was involved in this firing. It was either Chilly leaving or Lord Favre. He got his way again.

Forgot about Mallet and I watched the Miss St game Saturday..nice catch, you are right the kid also possesses a big time arm and Petrino runs a quasi prostyle offense as a change of pace.

So much really depends on whether some of these guys come out early. Mallett and Moore are class of 2012, Luck is class of 2013. If these guys decise to stay in school it leaves Locker, Ponder, Devlin, and Kaepernick as the pick of the litter. Anything past Locker is a gamble, IMHO. Can't wait for Boise and Nevada this weekend. Auburn and Alabama too.

I will be watching Nevada and Boise on Friday (I think)....of course with one eye closed the Iowa/Minny game as well....like a moth I go back to the flame.

Vikes had no clue what they were losing when they went "el cheapo" on Taylor. After the draft, Vike fans here thought they had the two steals in the draft with Gerhart and Joe Webb. I told them then good luck with that. Bears actually drafted JMarcus Webb this year and he is starting now.(and he's 6'8" 325lbs). Nobody gave the Bears a chance this year(except me and a couple other people) back then I told everyone that it would take time to develop this offense, and all the Bears really needed was to put ANY points on the board and they would be a lot better than the crap coaching job that Ron Turner was doing the last couple of years. Finally Angelo had to do something with Turner because he was more stubborn than Lovie. Have the Bears had problems with the O-Line?? Heck yeah, but with some open minded thinking and good coaching they have settled down nicely. Does Cutler still seem to throw bad picks, yes, but he is also throwing to spots on the field and not to WR's. Once Lovie told Martz to mix it up with the run, this team is giving the D some rest and this team has responded. Guaranteed Mike Vick will not run over this defense if our offense plays decent.

I watched Webb get flagged 4-5 times Thursday...poor mans McKinnie with really lazy feet...jury is out on him, plenty of man mountains who will reach first...(holding call waiting to happen) luckily the Fish didn't do much with those breaks and the Bear D won it again with special teams....Tice deserves assistant of the year for what he has been able to eek out of the Bears O-Line this year.

Yes he did get flagged, but in all fairness that was a rookie going against Cameron Wake who had something like 8 sacks so far this year and with the Bears finally running the ball(not the greatest yet, but it sure slows down the pass rush) Webb Im sure will turn out to be a good power rushing lineman.

Wow, if Packer fans had any doubts about keeping old no. 4 they should be dispelled by now. He really looks like a grandpa out there. He was gunshy and rushing throws (overthrows) and sliding before anybody was close to him. His decision making looks worse than in his first 2-3 seasons. Well, Viking fans you got what you deserved when you thought an ex-Packer whom you all hated for 16 years was the answer to your prayers.
If Favre had any sense or class, he'd announce his retirement tomorrow to stop the ugliness and tarnishing his legacy and tell the Vikings he won't take the remaining amount left on his 2010 salary.
It's pretty sad when a franchise is celebrating it's 50th anniversary and every "Great" season ended with a loss! It's like being the Cubs of football.
You better be careful because the word is out that Los Angeles will be building a new stadium to get a team into the 2nd largest media market and it's going to be an existing team that is ready to move. Just imagine what it would be like if the Vikings moved only to have 1 class NFL franchise (Green Bay) within 300 miles of the Twin Cities...oh yeah, that's already the case!
If Favre had any class he would have retired when he retired from the Packers. He would of been a hero, the one the Packer fans loved no matter what he did. I feel he turned his back on the Franchise and the fans. What was he thinking, we will never know.

Nice job by the Gophers. Still in shock over Boise.
I can't get a read on Newton - completely baffled on whether he can play at the next level or not. I do know that Mallett looked pretty darn good.

Malletts stock is rising with every game he plays...Nevada pulled off the improbable for sure but I still am not sold on Moore at Boise but he gets the passes downfield. Still not sold on Newton either though Auburn got to #1.
