Forget L.T.

Those Viking fans that had visions of LaDanian Tomlinson dancing in their heads may have been disappointed to learn he had signed with the Jets. But don’t despair…  He really wasn’t going to be a good fit anyway. First of all, he ISN’T the same player we had all witnessed over the last several years.

After watching film of him from the tail end of 2008 and also 2009 it is painfully clear he has lost a step and wasn’t nearly as explosive as before. He is also a notorious “Non-Gamer” who cannot or will not play hurt. He would have sulked playing behind Adrian (Clearly the better back) Peterson. NFL stars make terrible malcontents.

The team definitely requires an upgrade at backup RB, but other options may fit better.

– Stay tuned for updates on this.

    Running Back
    HELPED: Ian Johnson/Boise State — Johnson did not have a mind blowing workout at the combine yet was very solid and ranked in the top 10 of just about every category for the running backs. He came out a big winner as scouts no longer feel Johnson is simply a third down back or situational runner. Johnson, who measured 5-foot-11 and 212 pounds before timing at 4.45 in the 40 and completing 26 reps on the bench, is now being viewed as a potential feature runner. This alone will improve his draft stock almost a full round.

    last year’s draft……Sports Illustrated

    GO VIKES!!!!!

    Ditto on the Vikings RB’s, We have the reputation for years for having great RB’s, I really don’t see that changing in the future…
