Ten Questions In Week Five

So much happened this week.  It is really kind of incredible how quickly things can change in Viking Land when Zygi Wilf is in charge.

All this news gives me a perfect chance to get started on my “ten questions” feature which I have done in the past, but hope to do more regularly.  Please give us your opinions by voting on the polls below:

    Great polls Adam, enjoyed them.

    I am trying to be cautiously optimistic about this. On one hand Moss could be just what we need, he re-energizes the lackluster passing game, while making defenses forget about AP. And when they focus on our running game “BOOM” Moss burns em. There are so many options, Cheech, Shank, the Freak, AD, its crazy.

    On the other hand…being that its too good to be true, it probably is. Favre maybe is just too old, Moss too. Our O-line cant protect the QB OR block for the best RB in the league. The schedule is just too tough, we lose 3 out of the next 4 to fall to 2-5, the fans grumble and the media pressure becomes too much. We finsh ok but not good enough, miss the playoffs and thats that.

    There is one thing that makes me think the first hand is more likley to happen, our DEFENSE. Yep, the Viking defense is playing lights out. I think its something like #5 overall, and #8 vs the pass. I know its early but with a D like the one we have we should never be to far behind.

    I think we go 2-2 in the next 4, but I also say we go 8-1 the rest of the way. 11-5? That maybe enough for a 1st round bye in the NFC.

    AK –

    You expressed some deep concern a couple weeks back about the Vikes talking about being “all in” this year. I think your comment was along the lines of they are talking about being all in, but aren’t showing it. Has your opion changed with the Moss aquisition?

    • Adam Warwas says:

      First off I have to admit that even bloggers that try to dish out analysis with an even hand are allowed to have their favorites 🙂 Randy has long been one of my favorite all time Vikes. I saw your comment earlier about his character, and I’ll repeat what I’ve said int he past… I disagree.

      Putting that aside, however, I don’t think giving up a third rounder for one of the best WRs around (plus a seventh round pick) is going “all in” in the dangerous fashion I was worried about with Vincent Jackson, which is when I originally expressed concern about the “all in” mentality.

      I still think the Vikes are not “all in.” if they were, they would have traded future picks for more 2010 picks and got more immediate impact prospects. They would have been looking to give up even more picks to the Pats and got them to throw Mankins into the deal. They would have offered LT more money than he can refuse. They would have completly mortaged the future to get the wins ont he board right now.

      While the future looks sketchy becuase of the sheer amount of contracts needed, giving up a third rounder for Moss is a reasonable move for ANY team, whether they are “all in” or not.

  3. Fragile Freds says:

    Frankly Freds wished they would have focused on Mankins instead of Moss, but whatever. The need is greater at the o line than WR, though the Vikes needed help there as well.

    Are you saying that when your fine new son gets to be of sports competing age you will say, son, please be of great character, like Randy Moss? Please, say it ain’t so!! Never mind sports, in business, one should never treat people with the contempt Mr. Moss seems to think is his right. Yes, Freds knows it’s a business (Randy’s new excuse for his crappy behavior), but Randude is a man who can’t be trusted as he has shown a constant habit of forcing a team to trade him or he will play “when he wants to play”. Randy code for take some time off until you give him his way, just ask the Raiders and Pats. Two years of playing when he wanted to play in Oakland.

    Your old pal Fragile understands we all have flaws in our character, and perhaps Freds would be in the upper 80th percentile (new baby terms…I know you’re getting used to that) of flawed folks. But let’s admit Randy isn’t a man we want to have our son’s model his behavior.

    With that, Freds will repeat, it will be fun to have his talent on the club.

    This topic would be much better discussed over a dozen Colt 45s, I’ll catch the next plan to Alaska!
