Day after draft … can you say 6-10?

April 27, 2009 - Per Peterson
Congratulations Vikings on tanking another draft. This year’s NFL draft could turn out to be worse than the Purple's 2005 draft when they plucked up receiver Troy Williamson because he was fast. Hey, I type fast, but that doesn’t mean everything I type is good. They also got defensive end Erasmus James in that draft to bolster their pass rush. A few years later, the Vikings’ receiving corps is still average and they had to sell the farm for Jared Allen, a stud defensive end who did last year what the Vikings told us they thought James could do a few years ago. So the Vikings went out, past on a solid, good-guy offensive lineman and spent this year’s first-round pick on Percy Harvin, a hybrid receiver from Florida. Ohh, that sounds too good to be true doesn’t it — a receiver from Florida. This screams of Michael Irvin without the talent. Harvin is a creep and not a very smart one at that. He failed his drug test at the NFL combine. Dude, it’s the combine, you WILL be tested for drug use at the combine. Gawd! The Vikings’ other picks are either troublemakers, injury-prone or injury-prone troublemakers. Ick. Get ready for another mediocre season Viking fans, one filled with predictable play calling, ill-timed mistakes, loads of false starts and sacks — lots of them., most resulting in T-Jack or Sage lying in the fetal position. Unless the Vikings figure out a way to hold teams to 9 points a game, they’ll have a much higher pick in next year’s draft. Can’t wait to see what they do with THAT one.
