Which free agent do you think the Vikings made the biggest mistake by not resigning?

Lance Johnstone. We lost a good veteran and a big piece of our pass rush. The Raiders got a really good player in him. Hopefully DeQuicy Scott is OK.

Burleson has potential.

Nate Burleson we did terrible with out him I hope we do good though by picking a WR in the 2nd round. Nate Burleson was the best thing next to moss for the vikings who had about 70 catches not bad if you ask me. He was promising

Chavous, Burleson, Johnstone, and Brian Williams.

None of them.....I think we will do OK.

Burleson would have been nice, I am not going to blame him for ineffectiveness last year, as there were plenty of other problems.

nobody the players we got were better besides burlson and there was no way we could consider that deal!!!

nobody, the players replacing them are better, plus most of those guys had injury problems, or just stunk it up last year

I guess I'm gonna be the only one on here who mentions Bennett. I think he could have shined with the right coaching. I'll miss Burleson, too, but that was more because he was a UNR player, so I liked seeing a hometown boy on my Vikes.

No. That one is about which player do you miss the most.

Bennett.....excellent choice. He was never really utilized correctly. Backfiled by committee is not the greatest thing in the world.

I chose Newman...by far. I thought he was the 1 linebacker who did a great job throughout the year (Cowart was good also). I would've liked to see him back...did he get picked up by someone??

Newman is still unsigned.

I think its pretty close between Johnstone and Chavous. Chavous had some really good years at SS and Johnstone was a good pass-rusher. Losing Cowart and Newman hurt our LB core, but Cowart wouldnt have worked well in the Cover 2 (not sure about Newman).

Mine would have to be:
Burleson - He is a good slot guy. He is a very classy guy and he will give you 100 percent every play. He is also still pretty young.

Brian Williams - He proved him self last year. He is also pretty young and if improving every year.

Raonall Smith - He is injury plauged but when he played he played well. Might fit better in a Cover 2 defense. He is very athletic and can move well.

Paul Edinger.

Dont ask me why but I just love his clutch ability. We could of used that with Longwells short range ability

I didn't love Edinger's tendency to choke on 35-yarders.

I thought Newman really did well last year and was surprised to see him get ignored for this year, but it looks like every other team is ignoring him too.

Was also suprised the Vikes lowballed Nate, but last was a bit of a flop for him

Definatley Brian Williams.

I liked Newman...but the fact is that the players that we got rid of either didn't fit, wanted more money or to have the opportunity to start. We couldn't really give them what they wanted so it was best that they moved on. Good luck to them all...except against us!

brian williams, because we now have to turn to 2 unproven, inexperienced second year players if one of our starting corners gets injured

i like the team we have now, but if we get hit with the injury bug, then i see our season going straight downhill

Lance Johnstone, his 10 sacks a year will be missed, an underated player. Pass Rush is very valuable in the NFL.

Nate Burelson, we let him go for a 3rd rounder, we knew what we had in nate, a proven 1,000 yard WR at age 23. Good punt returner also, great in the open field, very polished, great route runner with exeptional speed and great athletisism. Hopefully this gives way to Williamson coming through.

Brian Williams, Why is he not #1 on this list? He didn't want to play for the vikings.


Corey Chavous was definitly the one i wanted to see gone, and of course they let him go. He did nothing spectaculaur for the last two years and he's ageing at a position where they play well into there 30's. SS is a very important part of a defense and if you have a good one it does wonders for your D. See the likes of Ed Reed, Troy Palumalu, Roy Williams, Brian Dawkins, Sean Taylor, Bob Sanders, ect. Though there not all SS they make a huge impact for there defense. We need that.

I garuntee fans will be going Corey who?
