Thread: Winfield?

  1. #1

    Winfield?

    Knowing that one of the big holes we have on defense is LEADERSHIP, is it wrong to hope the vikings sign Winfield seeing how he is stalling submitting retirement papers?

    I would not expect him to play much, but (again, this is from the sparse information a person can get in Oregon on the Vikings) I always thought he was a great leader in season's past.

    We need to do something. Robinson is fast, but outmatched when he is a starting corner. Cook gets hurt trying his shoes. Jefferson just plain sucks. Rhodes is the only bright spot of the entire CB corps, and he is still making rookie mistakes. And Sherels is on the roster because of special teams play. The only other CB we have on roster is Bobby Felder... and who the F is Bobby Felder?

    Pretty good summary/rant, actually.

    Rhodes will be a good one for a very long time methinks. Sherels brings ST play, heart, and moxie. If Cook could just stay on the field we might see a decent player...but, that simply hasn't happened. I still think Robinson will eventually be a good player-not a Pro-Bowler...but, he's never gonna be a shut down guy. Jefferson should never see the field outside of Special Teams.

    Oh, bring back Winnie please!

    He is past his glory and not the answer to our problems. Bringing him back to fix the secondary would be like bringing back Moss to fix the WR position. He just isn't what he used to be.

    Vikings are 1-3. Bringing back Winfield would make them a better team, but won't take them to the promise land.
    Josh Robinson, on the other hand, is a huge liability and shouldn't even be on the roster.
    For all the good decisions Spielman has made, reliance upon Robinson appears to be a significant blunder.

    He was last year. Why would you expect him to have lost so much in one offseason? I bet we'd be 3-1 if Winfield was still on the team.

    That's a bad comparison. Moss was never a leader, and never will be. He had a few choice words for the Vikings because they gave Patterson his number! What the heck does he think the Vikings owe him??

    Winfield, however, WAS looked up to by a lot of players. We have the talent, in my opinion...we just need someone to hold those players accountable.
