    Would be super sexy :D One can only dream, I still think we need to look at depth for the interior of the O-line, and hopefully Brewster is a player at some point.
    I didn't like where we drafted Brewster. I thought we could've waited. But after we drafted him, I did some research on him and really liked what I saw/found out.

    I have no reason to believe he can't be a future starting RT for us. If that doesn't work, I think he could be moved to guard. Next season he should be our new Swing tackle. ...taking the place of Doug Free who will have moved into the starting line up. The one year Brewster has had immersing himself in the OL scheme (on paper, in terminology) should really help him for training camp next year. His torn pectoral muscle should be more than healed by then. Usually takes 4-6 months. I have just as high hopes for him than I do on Jason Williams. Brewster could be a real gem. He looks like a finisher, mauler and has very good movement in his feet. ...and add to that... when he wears his glasses he looks smart. lol. If he really is an intelligent player then the has the stuff to really become great.

    Edit... before I get too off track... MINNESOTA IS GOING DOWN!!! hahaha.

        You're speaking in past tense. Correction... I still hate last year's draft.

        Even if Brewster is a Pro Bowl RT, that draft will still suck.

          BLAH, I will miss the first quarter tomorrow because I'm flying to Vegas for a trade show. Glad to be going to Vegas, but extremely pissed that I'm missing a quarter. First of any game I will have missed in like 4 years.

          I'm fairly confident going into this game. I think we match up really well.

          Leroy's Keys to the game

          Offense:

          1. STOP Jared Allen- I think we'll chip and throw a few double teams at him
          2. Control the clock- do i need to elaborate?
          3. Attack Winfield- he's still not at 100% and I think we can take advantage of him.

          Defense:

          1. Stuff the run- Keep AP to minimal gains
          2. Contain Percy Harvin- He's just like DeSean Jackson, keep him in front of you.
          3. Blitz, blitz, blitz and when you're done blitzing, blitz again

            My keys to the game:

            Offense:

            1) Pass the ball well
            2) Run the ball well

            Defense:

            1) Stop the run
            2) Stop the pass


            If we can do those things, and if we can score more points than them, I guarantee a victory.

              ...but for real.

              1) We've been over this draft, but I think if we can get one 3rd pass rushing OLB to backup Ware and Spencer, one decent OL to provide quality depth, and one future starter out of the deal (either Hamlin, Ogletree, or J Williams), to go along with the best TB specialist in the league in Buehler, then I think we have to be satisfied with our draft. I know everyone had guys they liked that were available when our pick came up in the 2nd, but if you can get a decent haul with a starter and some nice situational guys in a year when you have no 1st rounder, that's as good as can be expected. Everyone has down years, and when you look at the homerun of a class that we had in 08 as well as the suddenly very solid looking class of 07, its not that big a deal, really. I'm not upset about it, though I know it could certainly be better. That is the nature of the NFL draft, though.



              As for the game...I've had a bad feeling all week long, and I can't shake it. I have no peace of mind with this team, and as long as Wade is here I don't think I ever will. I think something bad happens early and we get beat down. BUT, if we can make it out of the 1st quarter with the a lead and/or without turning the ball over, I think our chances of pulling it out are pretty good.

              Just can't shake the ache in my gut, though.

              Vikings 27, Dallas 17




              Also, for the guy predicting that Minny would get 30 points or so: realize that only ONE team has scored 30 or more against us this year, and it was with the help of TOs and STs returns. That was NYG. We played San Diego, NO, Phi, Phi and GB and not one of those teams could get over 20 points, let alone 30. This is a really, really good scoring D. The only way you're getting over 30 is with the help of TOs and return yardage/TDs. Look at my prediction and you'll see how likely I think that is.

                I'm scared of this game. So much that i'm up at this hour and i can't fall back to sleep. I turned on my laptop so that pretty much assures me that any small chance i had of sleeping again today is toast.

                  I have come down from the mountain and here are my keys to the game:

                  Defense
                  1) Ratliff consistently beating their Center and forcing their Guards into double
                  2) Containing the seem passes to Harvin and Visanthe
                  3) No Berrian deep -- he can easily slip a corner with Favre running around...
                  4) LB Tackling -- a lot of MN will be short passing and I expect alot of AP
                  5) Screen pass recognition

                  Offense
                  1) Witten and Bennett and Phillips underneath for first downs
                  2) Austin and/or Oggletree attacking the safeties successfully
                  3) Fumbles, the MN play pretty aggressive, less concerned about INT
                  4) Flo false starts v Allen
                  5) MBIII and CHoice getting some tough yards in the middle on 3rd and 2

                    I said we'd get 30 if we blocked. That's a big if. Why do you guys think you were so successful on D? My point was is that our squad can score with anyone if we protect Favre.

                      The pregame pundits have noted this morning that Dallas hasnt given up 2+ TDs in 5 games, & that says a helluva lot about the Dallas defense, particularly the pass rush that may just be the best in the NFL at this time.

                      The Vikes will need to be at least 2 TDs better than the Cowboys to win today. Their defense is just one Romo nuance head fake or safety look off from catching up with 7 points, give up a late turnover & it's all over. It could come down to which defense can hold their lead, can stop either of these comeback QBs from doing what they do best.

                        Austin picks up the 1st down .... as a RB? Completely confused the Vikes though

                        In the early drive Romo has all day to throw. Opening drive looks Garrett scripted, scary.......

                        Uh oh, Minnesota smelled out the draw play.

                        Damn, well, that sure sucked, Romo lost the ball, Vikes recovery, 1st mistake of the game.

                            There was no one to throw to just now. I dont know what you want him to do there.

                                I had nothing against Romo...didn't like the deep drop play call by garrett...but I understood it was 3rd and 14.
