  • Chester is a great player. But I have a feeling we are going to move onto Albert Young. He very few carries this year, but when he touched the ball he did alright.

    • I would be alright with that. How about we give Ian Johnson some carries? :)

        Either one would be just fine with me. If Young was the 2nd string and Johnson was 3rd. Yes.

        • the thing about having albert young or ian johnson as a backup rb is that they are both inexperienced. When AD fumbles the rock like he does, we need a proven vet to take over a game if he becomes too much of a liability.

            I wouldn't be so quick to speak on Young. He held onto the ball in college. And did it really well I might add.

            • I would be fine with Young/Johnson if we knew they'd be a #2 and only have a few carries a game, but with AD's injury problems in college and his running style, I'm not comfortable with either as a guy who can step in and be the #1 guy getting 20 carries a game for a few games.

                I am a million times more comfortable with either of them at running back then I would be with starting Gus Ferrote or Brad Johnson or Tavaris Jackson at quarterback.

                • Adam Schefter on ESPN said that Westbrook has had 3-4 teams call about his services and he said the Vikings could be one of them. Childress having the Philly background and we've seen in the past he likes to bring ex-eagles over to the Vikings. If he is healthy and comes cheap(which i sort of doubt), I'm all for it. I'd rather see Chester come back but if we can't I think Westbrook is a good option for 3rd down situations.

                    Depends on what kind of deal he's going to ask for. I would rather have Westbrook than LT on this team due to familiarity and the fact that Westbrook can split out wide with the best of them.

                    However, I do think that a big time lead blocking fullback is a bigger need than a 3rd down back. Peterson was awesome with Tony Richardson. Can't say the same with Tahi. We missed the boat on Quinn Johnson from LSU last year. I loved that guy coming out. Great project for Childress.

                    I still can't believe Eric Bienemy has a job. That guy should have been gone. The error that led to the 12 men penalty, the constant fumbling from Peterson, the fact that he's gotten worse each year instead of better is just scary.

                      I am in 100% agreement with this statement. Bienemy should have been fired immediately for the error that essentially cost us the Super Bowl.

                          • Apparently today Ray Edwards got a 1st round tender, and Tarvaris Jackson got a 3rd round tender... I expected those 2 to get tendered still looking to see if there are any more.

                            • That's about what I expected/hoped for those 2. If I remember right, Evans, Cook, and Tahi are also RFAs, so it'll be interesting to see what they get. I hope we tender Evans, but the other 2 can walk.

                              EDIT: and I think Paymah is too, but he can walk also.

                              • DE Ray Edwards: Received a first-round tender of $2.5 million.

                                DT Fred Evans: Received a second-round tender of $1.8 million

                                QB Tarvaris Jackson: Received a third-round tender of $1.2 million

                                FB Naufahu Tahi: Was tendered with the right of first refusal, meaning the Vikings would not be in line to get a draft pick if Tahi is signed by another team and Minnesota doesn't match.

                                CB Karl Paymah: Has been told he will not receive any type of offer and thus will become an unrestricted free agent.

                                Still checking: Offensive lineman Ryan Cook and safety Eric Frampton.
                                Thats the RFA Tender situation for the Vikings as of 7:48pm tonight.

                                So lets hope a team is dumb enough to take Tarvaris off our hands. But Very doubtful.
