Norvell Turner was the o.c. for a year in San Diego and they asked him who they should take at qb. Top pick. Norv said he liked the kid from Purdue and so San Diego took l.t. pick 4 and drew brees in round 2. Wonder if Spielman will ask who Norv likes.

Going from Musgrave to Norv Turner is a huge upgrade.

We can now win the first half of every game!

If HC figures out the 2nd half..........we are set.

I think if Brigewater or Manziel is still there the Vikes will take one of them . Brigewater & Manziel are very accurate QBs something Ponder wasn't. Brigewater is the most NFl ready. Manziel has this cockyness kind of like Cam Newton but is young & would take a little longer to develop.

I do think Cassel has trade value. If I was Spielman I would make a offer. The Brown's have two first round picks. I would see about a trade with the Browns for their 4th pick. I am not all that sure the Brown's will go with a QB & pass up a much needed OT. A trade could benefit both teams even if they don't want Cassel. The Brown's still get their OT & they get out of the high price tag of the 4th pick.

I forgot to add that the Browns are over their salary cap.

Whatever it takes to trade into the top 3.

QB. Period. Look at the playoff teams.

Ponder, Cassel, Freeman..........utter waste.

Spielman needs to go for broke trading up for Manziel.

Because..........without a bona fide QB..........little Dick Spielman is done.

Im sure Carr from Fresno State will fall to you at the 8th spot.Why trade up and waste picks unless you are that 1 player from the promised land or at least the playoffs

I don' think that this is the year to "trade up". The Vikings have too many holes to fill and could use all the draft picks we have and still probably need more.

I'm thinking (and by all means this is an opinion and not probably on of the better ones out there) that unless we get the guy we want at QB. Use the draft to rebuild the team and let Cassel QB for 14. Then in the 2015 draft go for broke for a QB. This will give the offense and defense time to gel.

So in other words if your QB is not there at pick 8,,trade Down for extra picks,Draft a qb later on, Let Cassel play in 14 and develop the May14 drafted qb develop a year?
Cut loose Ponder then?
Theres the extra pick or 2 that you mentioned about rebuilding.

A top 8 pick does not happen often. And it could have been top 3 if they had not won a few meaningless games.

LBs, CBs, etc..........more common than QBs.

Rodgers, Rivers, Kaepernick, Manning, Manning, Brees, Brady,.........

vs

Ponder, Cassel, Smith, Cutler, any Jets,Raiders,Dolphins,Browns,L ions QB..........

The Vikings are in 4th place until they have a starter.

I never thought about trading down. But that could be a possibility.

Main idea that I was thinking was "don't reach". I don't see any need in drafting another Ponder. If there isn't a QB there, don't waste the pick.

Harry, as I told Eric the main thought I had was "don't reach". If the QB of our choice isn't there for some reason, don't reach for a QB like we did Ponder. It would do us no good to waste the pick.

Just my opinion.

Next season there is no guarantee the Vikes will have a better draft pick then they do this year. The Best QB the Vikes would want next season would be Marcus Mariota, He is the only one to go all out for & if the Vikes win more games then this year, Their wouldn't be much of a chance to get Manota.. The other QBs of that draft don't have the accuracy that Brigewater or Manziel has, I can see going all out for someone like Manota But the Vikes could win their selfs out that chance.

In some of the other Vikes chat rooms their saying Brigewater didn't play top teams. however Two of his best performances at Louisville came in bowl games against Florida and Miami & bot was victories. In those two games, Bridgewater threw for 713 yards and five touchdowns. He also ran for another score. Brigewater's calling his own plays & changing plays on the line along with his footwork & accuracy puts him way ahead of the other QBs in the draft. He is a NFL ready quarterback. It would be really nice if he was to fall to the Vikes. I would be surprised if he does but I sure wouldn't complain.

Has anyone ever played Ethan Allen's Cadaco All Star baseball game Its a great game for all ages. It goes way back to the forties & they stop making it in 2003. I seen it on line for sale & had to buy it. It has all the. great players stats on a disk. Guys like Yogi Berra, Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth, Frankie Robinson, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Reggie Jackson, Mark Mcgwire, Bo Jackson. Just about any player you can think of this game has. If you havn't seen it look it up I know if you like it.
