Pre-Draft Blizzard

The Viking talk centers on Percy Harvin (Star Tribune).  The only thing that frustrates me will be the "Oh, the Vikings say they want accountability and character, what about this guy's baggage, they're hypocrites blah blah blah" angles.  I don't care about those things at all.

Matt Stafford to Lions (SI).  It might not yet be accurate to say the Vikes have by far the worst QB situation in the NFC North.  It is accurate, however, to say the Vikings have done the least to try make their QB situation good.  Considering their ages, Aaron Rodgers, Jay Cutler, and Matt Stafford could be going wild in the division for a long time.  And what are the Vikings doing?


  1. I disagree slightly with your views on the NFC North QB situation. It's probably a tie between between the Lions and the Vikings as to which team has done the least to improve at the position. The only thing the Lions have done to improve their QB situation is finish 0-16 in 2008, which gave them the first pick in the draft and the ability to pick whomever they want. Lucky for them, there are two college QBs worthy of consideration and they got Stafford. I wouldn't call this masterful planning on the Lions part – or any planning at all.

    Possible the Lions thought Stafford was a wide receiver?
