With the signing of Darrin Sharper from the Packers, how big of an impact does he have for the Vikes, mainly when we play the Pack. I think they will have to change their audibles and hand signals at the line when Sharper is on the field. He may be able to steal the occasional play or two also.

What do my fellow Viking fans think :?:

I think it gives us a big advantage...not only was he from the pack, he was a HUGE chunk of thier defense...and knows that team in and out...but knowing how dumb the packers are ( see combine pic) they wont realize that till we're up 42 points in the 4th...."oh dang man, number 4-2 was on our team sherman!!" "DANG!"

Farve should get to know Mr. Sharper personally in 2005. I'm sure he never got a chance to hit Brett in practice so he'll be licking his chops!

I think the packers are smart enough to change some of their hand signals around! They probably do it every year if not week to week during the season. Just my thoughts.

Just my thoughts.Probably so, but Shaprer would probably know all adjustments that they may make also. I know that his presence will disrupt the Pack somehow, hell, if it pisses of the Packer fans when he picks Favre at Lambeau that will be good enough for me.

Personally i think he will be valued more for leadership than for playmaking.

It should be off some advantage during games, but on the flip side of it the Packers will know everything about him, his weaknesses and tendancies etc so they'll probably cancel each other out.

well i think sharper will know what kind of play the packers will do and i think he will tell us all about how they play, we will dominate i can't wait to see.

I think that most teams change signals each year. I think Sharper will have impact for us because he wants to prove that he can still be a playmaker. Kinda like a "I told you so" to the Pack.

LOL, this is the frickin NFL people. Uh, duh, uh lets keep the same hand signals and everything exaclt the same so that people WHO JUST WATCH FILM can crush us, no he does not provide extra insight into what the hell Favre is doing, he will just provide extra hands into picking off Favrahs lame duck passes and extra hits to Donald "Not much better than a truck" Driver and Robert "Oh god please don't hurt me" Ferguson.

LOL, good stuff, and calling them fudge Packers is not very nice. I mean if I was gay and you even started to compare me to the Packers I would be pissed ...

I don't hold any puches with this. Sharper will be more of a boon ot your team than a bane. He's going to give you some positive knowledge and expertise. He tips the scale a bit in the Packer/Viking games.

He's also got some other new faces that are talented around him..

I was one who felt that his fall from grace wasn't all his fault. It will be as interesting for us to Sharper is it will be for you guys to watch Moss.

I was thinking that he would be able to help out the offense too, but then I remembered the fudge kings made their d-coordinator their scape goat again and brought in jim bates so he will probably revamp their defense schemes. As for the offense, I agree they probably change signals on a weekly basis, otherwise teams would pick that up too easily in tape sessions.

Remember he was playing on a bad achillies also for half that season.

About the hand signals: I remember Brett talking about them in "The Catch II" from NFL Films. From what it sounded like, they don't usually change hand signals. He talked about how the 49ers used pretty much the same hand signals because they both had the same Bill Walsh-descended West Coast offenses. He talked about how he faked the Niners out by using a hand signal that they knew, and changing the play so they would bite on a fake.

So, as logical as it would seem to change hand signals every week, it didn't sound like they changed them in the past.

Let's also not forget that the Packers practice 1s on 1s. He doesn't know the signals, he knows the players. I've heard he intercepts Favre all the time in practice.

Mmmm....I don't think the #1 offense faces off against the #1 defense much during the regular season. They do in training camp, but during the season they usually have the #3 QB simulating the opposing quarterback.

So, I while Sharper will have some edge in reading Favre, it's not quite as intimate as you might think.

IMO, Sharper isn't the player he once was, but he helps us in the sense that he makes GB's defense worse (apparently, that is possible :p)

sharper is a good fit for a team that has two good corners and all he has to do is play over the top. He will have a positive impact on the team, not just in the GB games, he is definitely an improvement over russell

plus they needed his cash to fill the holes on the o-line.

I am concerned about the tackling Sharper demonstrated. If the tackle is made before the runner gets to Sharper the better.
