This team is delusional

Sid Hartman: Frazier says Vikings are still shopping | StarTribune.com (http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/143063876.html)

"We still want to find a wide receiver that can really threaten the field vertically," the Vikings coach said. "We also want to improve our secondary along with our linebackers, also

Looking for a WR that can stretch the field vertically huh? Like?
Ginn can't catch and the rest of the field stretchers are useless.

"Brandon Fusco is going to be a guy who has to come along and play better for us, and we're looking forward to watching him develop."

"We need Chris DeGeare to really come on for us. DeMarcus Love, a young man we drafted a year ago, we need those young guys to come along and play well for us."

"We really need Asher Allen to really step up and play well for us. With our young secondary, Mistral Raymond, we need him to play well for us. We'd like to get Hussain Abdullah back from the concussion."

"Jasper Brinkley [who missed last season] is going to be a big plus for us at linebacker"

We are putting the future of the team in the hands of a bunch of guys who no one have a clue will turn out.

The WR is really dead already, Manningham signed with the 49ers today and all there is left is guys like Andre Caldwell, Neenee and a bunch of old guys who didn't get extended because of their age.

Those quotes really show someone who is delusional. Maybe some of these guys look good in practice, so they think they will pan out. But, honestly, if you look good in practice on a team full of terrible players ... doesn't that mean you are only looking good against terrible players?

Well, they've been thru the football players & college basketball players. They must be looking at ex-soccer players now.

So the 49ers got Moss & Manninham? Wow!

They might get Manning too.

Who's left for us? Hank Basket?

I wouldnt be mad at us signing Early Doucet, Steve Smith and Braylon Edwards. Not expecting tons of protection bu all three guy is healthy can make us a deep passing team.

I think what would be ideal (and probably impossible) is for some team like the Broncos, if they lose out on the Manning sweepstakes, to decide to trade up to #3 to grab Tannehill. We would get a deal much like St. Louis did for the #2. Then, since we are sitting at #25, why not make a large offer to Mike Wallace that the Steelers won't match therefore giving them our #25. Again, this is highly impossible but just a thought I came up with realizing Mike Wallace could still be signed as a RFA. If only the stars would align.....

it would nice to see us draft khalil and then turn around and sign Wallace to an offer sheet... that way we 'd give them next years first rounder.. although the way we're going it would be in the top 5 agian... lol so maybe not!

If to be believed they are checking into either Ted Ginn or keeping Aromashadu.

How are any of those guys like Harvin?

The remaining receivers I'm interested in are: Jerome Simpson and Jericho Cotchery.

meaning they are slot receivers and are of similar stature... under 6'1 and xlbs.. AND don't play on the outside.. that's how... Cotchery plays the slot as well and jerome simpson should be in the olympics not on a football team.. .meaning i don't think he's a difference maker... he won't even stand out in our offense... he's good because AJ Green takes all the attention off of him...

Ginn is visiting today... not that either would make a difference aside from Ginn in the return game.. Shadu's routes are terrible..

It seems Speilmillen is shopping at Walmart while the other GM's are shopping at Armani.

Ah yes, whatever happened to those? I remember college in SD, blue light specials on beer were quite common. Shit beer and only 3.2, but at $4 a case it fit my budget well. Grab a couple 25 cent hot dogs on the way out and I was ready to start swilling that nasty blue light special.
