    I really dont know why but Im not upset that we arent. I feel we could get a WR out of the draft that could have more production for us rather than Holt. Also he would be the oldest player on our offense with the age of 32, so maybe we trying to keep young.

    • Well the fact that Torry Holt hasn't really been aggresivly pursued by any team yet seems to suggest the entire league views him as having lost a step. I still wouldn't mind the Vikings picking him up though to a 1 year contract similar to what bills gave owens but for a bit less money.

          • Would be ecstatic if we could extend those three.

            • The Vikings may have not been very active in the Free Agent market this year. But if they can Sign Adrian Peterson, Chad Greenway, and Chester Taylor to extension that would be great.

                    GOD DAMMIT!!!


                    this off season the bears have signed not one, but two tackles to try to fill the voids, and have traded for one of the better, younger qbs in the league, mean while the only thing the vikes have done is waste a pick trading for sagefuckingrosenfail.



                    emo crybaby ***** or not, cutler is now the best qb in the division, the bears have a decent(but aging) defense, a solid runningback, and a threat to take the ball to the house on every kickoff. when the offseason started, the vikes were ahead of the other teams in the north; with their lack of effort and ambition, they are starting to fall to the wayside.

                    the vikes were a solid qb away from doing big things. a young, solid, probowl qb becomes available, and they sit on their ******* asses.

                      You may be right but here are the terms of the deal:
                      __
                      Broncos get Orton, two first-rounders, and a third-rounder, and the Bears get Cutler and a fifth-rounder. Per the Bears’ official announcement.
                      __
                      That's a whole lot to pay for a QB, even a good one. If he doesn't pan out, the Bears are in deep trouble. I'm not sure i would have wanted the Vikings to pay this much for Cutler.

                        Thats exactly what I was thinking. The bears pay a lot and some say he is Proven but I feel like he is not. 17-20 as a Starter with a good offense. Now he is going to a team with a above average if that offense and Aging but good defense. I think he is going to help the bears for sure but talking super bowl with the bears is outrageous.

                        Im upset that we dont have a stable Franchise QB but Im not upset that we passed on cutler after seeing the King Ransom that they gave up for him.

                        • so you guys are comfortable with the pieces of **** we have at qb now? i'm not necessarily pissed we didnt go after cutler, just that we have done nothing to improve, while the notoriusly cheap chicago bears have at least been trying to fill their voids, let alone swinging for the fences with the trade for cutler.


                          plus we paid a kings ransom for jared allen, who at the time had two dui's on his record




                          plus i never said the bears were superbowl bound

                            First off, No Im not happy with the movements with the Vikings but I have no control over it. Who would be happy with Sage and Tarvaris? Not many people and yes Im a little sick how the Vikings Front Office has handled. All we can do is hope that the players we have can get the job done and also hope that we do something in the draft. Plus next year there will be Jason Campbell and Chad Pennington out on the market, that could get the job done a lot better and for a cheaper price than cutler.

                            Also yes we played a lot for Jared Allen and that is probably the reason why we didnt go after Cutler because Speilman likes his draft picks.

                            I know you personally didnt say the bears were superbowl bound, that was about a person on ESPN said. It was not directed towards you.

                            Whats the worst that can happen? We have an Average season and fire childress?

                              Not sure why you'd be upset with the Allen deal. I think that worked out very well for us. Not to mention we haven't done much during free agency but we still have picks in this draft. The Bears now have a QB sure, but no WR's, an aging defense and Oline AND no first round picks until 2011.

                              In the end we made the right move. We couldn't afford to go without first round picks in '08, '09 and '10. Sage isn't Cutler but we haven't seen what he can do. We should improve the Oline and maybe add another WR early in this draft. Our defense gets EJ back so all in all I really like where we sit. I'd rather have Cutler in Chicago than Detroit and have to watch him throw to Calvin for the next 10 years.

                                yes, that is certainly one of the worst things that can happen. fat pat, winfield, and hutch aint getting any younger. childress gone is good though

                                i'm not, certainly dont take that away from it. i love allen on this team. i'm just pointing out that we paid alot for an even bigger risk
