I surely hope I never think like he does...The pick of Ponder should be enough of an indictment on his draft prowess...Just look at how many drafted players remain on this team and what type of talent level we are talking about...It's pathetic to say the least...
the Ponder pick is surly one of the Vikings biggest screw ups of late. I hated that pick, he never looked like a leader. a friend of mine, big college fan, would always try to reassure me Ponder was going to be good, he had it going on at Florida state give him time. I would bitch and moan about that fool, finally one day when I complained about him he had to agree, ponders got nothing. the only upside of Bridgewater is he was supposed to go 1st in the draft a few months ago, Johnny football got a big ass ego and a cool nickname. I admit I'd take a gamble on Bridgewater, after that in the 3rd or 4th take the best QB left, if he don't have it, we should have a high pick next year and a stronger QB draft. but as Koko would say this is all a moot point, the top QBs will be gone. teams will take a gamble and fail with this years group cause there might not be a next year, and for about 1/2 the GMs there shouldn't be.
Just took a look at the 2009 Draft for the Vikings...Percy, Loadholt, Brinkley, Sanford, and Asher Allen who many felt was the sleeper of the draft...LOL sleeper alright he got knocked the fork out a bunch!...Note to Spielman on Brinkley...You let him go to save money and then paid Erin Henderson more than you would offer Jasper. Erin was a fork up and now we are forced to watch you bumble through free agency again. I did like the 2 guys(Capt'n and Linval Joseph) he brought in at DT and CB, but gotdammed the Vikings didn't have ANYBODY, so it was an instant upgrade whoever they brought in...Honestly, the 2 MLBs the Vikings employ at this time aren't starting quality...I know many of you guys have high hopes for Audie Cole, but that's fools gold fellas...Neither can cover worth a chite and MLBs are supposed to make a chit ton of tackles...The Vikings need a Luke Kuechly. That's a player you can build a defense on. Today the Vikings DO NOT have that player on the roster, in my opinion...
How is this for an out of the box idea? The Vikes trade up to the #2 spot and take Jadaveon Clowney to play DE and move Griffen to a LB position. Then we have 2 players with size and speed on the field that could be interchangeable. Just a thought.
This is where CJ Mosley comes in........I totally agree about not having starter quality at LB and especially to cover....the one thing about Cole and its more of a situational thing is he was solid when blitzing last year....I like him has a back up/situational blitzer but we do need a lot better talent to be full time starters .
Teams seem to shy away from MLBs these days...One thing for sure the MLB has to be multi faceted...Meaning he has to be able to cover and tackle and be fast/quick enough to chase sideline to sideline...Can you say needle in a haystack?
