I am not saying the Vikes had the top offseason, they were basicly asleep during free-agency, but, as Chilly claimed, they did build through the draft and did a decent job. We will have a great bases for the year, we are just lacking some real playmakers and an offensive identity.

Additions through free agency:

Vinny Ciurciu (Special Teamer) OLB
Vishante Shiancoe (I think he will do realy well) TE
Bobby Wade WR / KR
Mike Doss S
Cortez Hankton KR / Special Teamer / WR
Todd Towber WR Project

Draft:

Adrian Peterson HB
Sidney Rice WR
Marcus McCaughly CB
Brian Robinson DE / Special Teamer Specialist
Aundrae Allison WR
Rufus Alexander OLB
Chandler Williams WR / KR
TYler Thigpen QB / WR
Extra 3rd rounder next year

Loses:

Napolean Harris MLB
Mike Rosenthal T
Marcus Robinson WR
Travis Taylor WR
Brad Johnson QB
Fred Smoot CB
Jeramaine Wiggins TE

Than there are the guys who didn't play last year due to injury. This is like
getting a bunch of extra rookies and free agents

Extras: (People who were on IR last year)
Chad Greenway (Ist Round las year) OLB
Erasmus James (Ist Round the year before) DE
Tank Williams SS


Overall, I think we have a vastly improved team than last year.

Losing McGahee made it a great off season. The rest of the moves were icing on the cake.

It just seems like the Vikings get all of these good players and they can never do anything with them. You would at least think they'll make it too the playoffs.

no question it was the pats

when one of the best organizations starts to decide to spend some money, it can become pretty scary
