Time to get it started.

1. Today they cut the predictable bust Mike Wallace. Anyone with a brain could see that this was gonna be a bust. We still dont have a QB that can throw the ball over 15 yards with any accuracy or consistency. Toiletwater blows!!

2. Vikings resign Andrew Sendungho. This guy is terrible. They should have spent that money on Terrance Newman and then went out and got Iloka from the Bengals and reunite him with Zimmer.

3. We could have signed Kelechie Oseleme (sp??) and cut Kalil and had an instant upgrade to the line. Could have done it for even money. Instead the Raiders got him. One of the best O-linemen in the game and he can play tackle or guard.

4. Resigned Audie Cole. Hope they can get Newman, Greenway, and Robison back as back ups and at a discount for just one more year.


I believe they have $30 million in cap room. I would spend that money on a safety (iloka) and a guard (Boone). Fixes 2 very large holes and gives you some draft flexibility.

They weren't going to be able to sign Oseleme, he got the max from Raiders. Would have been nice to get him and keep Kalil then we would have a descent line. We have a lot of holes on the line and Kalil was not that bad last year. Everyone thinks about two seasons ago when he was horrible. We need a safety lined up with Harris and agree sandejo is horrible. Hits hard but that's about it. If Vikes want to do anything next year they need to fix the o line.

I have to disagree with you on Kalil. When he did not miss his assignment he would get a penalty. He has been the worst link in the O line for quite some time. Horrible. IMHO

Yea I forget about all the penalties he did have. The entire line needs an upgrade.

I'd love to see them go after a safety, would be fun to see Iloka and Harrison Smith playing next to each other. That would be a huge upgrade.

The O-line is also an obvious need. They are keeping Kalil not because he played great but because its a tough position to fill and he's likely the best option available that fits their budget. Unless Kalil has some sort of massive awakening this year he'll probably be gone after this year. I suspect they'll sign some oline help and then look for some additional lineman in the draft.

That leaves WR as the big draft need.

Forte would be nice, however, Jimmy Graham would be ideal. A big body as fast as he is that can stretch the middle and catch the ball like Graham would make the GB offense incredibly dangerous. I wouldn't mind seeing Wallace come over for dirt cheap so he can finally play with a QB that can get the ball far enough down field for him to run at full speed. He hasn't had that since Pittsburgh. One of Rodgers few flaws is he tends to overthrow the deep route. Oh that's right, this is a Vikings season prediction.

Sounds like Iloka is staying in Cincy 5 years 30 million. 18 guarentee. Really makes the deal for Sundungho look terrible now. Spielman is an idiot.

I don't understand your reasoning on Sendejo. Why is his resign terrible? And you blame Spielman, but I am sure Zim made that call. Sendejo is not a started, but one hell of a backup, and he got NFL safety backup pay, and he knows the system. Great signing in my book. They still need a starter, but can work on that still in free agency or the draft.

All the teams that make big moves for big players, all struggle, because that new player does not know the playbook. Teams that make their players work, resign their good players, usually do well. Zim is looking at his former players in Cinci because they already know his system.

And that does not even account for cap fitting contracts.

I don't understand your opinion on Sendejo?!?!?
