Our secondary has been a problem for years. Had one corner (Winfield) who was great but we have suffered with marginal safetys and the opposite corner. We are likely to again give up big passing yards which has been our problem for a long time. Robison showed some sparks last Sunday and Jared will do his job for damn sure. Would like a legit third threat in the "D" line to add to the pressure but an upgrade in the secondary is a must. It's another rebuilding year but loved the spirit of the team and was really impressed with Ponder. Great building blocks for the future.

Thor--

Agree our secondary is the big problem...BUT, it has been that way for years. No question, our Achilles Heel. Lot's of good pieces in the team puzzle but our secondary will make an average QB look like an all pro. Will again haunt us all year.

Have no idea on the stats but let me guess...the Vikes have been at or very near the bottom of the NFL for picks for many years. Huge need that will not be addressed until the draft/free agency after the season. My 7-9 or 8-8 prediction looks to have been way to optomistic. My bad...

Thanks for the post Thor....good read for sure. I think you sort of misunderstood my earlier point. I do not disagree with you that we desperately need a corner or 3! I simply would rather address the position at the end of this season than risk passing on such a solid O-lineman. We will have a top 5 draft pick come April and I would bet the farm we take the best available corner. Now we're all happy!
