Cassell for a Big Ticket!

Recommended Posts

Scott K

There are many qb's you could get from any team for 2 first rounders, and I am sure most qb's wouldnt turn down a close to $15 million a year offer either. I think you could just about pry any qb away with that offer, ALMOST!

Cassell may or may not be better then T-Jack, he had a few good games, and a few average games all with some good recievers to throw to. I would hate to trade the farm, and give him most of our remaining cap money, to find out it was a one season wonder, and the recievers made him good. Then where are the Vikes for the next few years, no good draft picks, and no money to spend on any free agents. To big of a gamble! Maybe a first and C. Taylor?

this time last year, everyone was after Derek Anderson and he sucked in '08 after signing a big contract. Too much risk on Cassell. Any one know what are the other QB free agent options there are this year?

Reports out there say the odds are good he will not be good to go right away.

Which brings to mind something that I've mentioned in the past. I don't think the Pat's are impressed with Brady for NOT using team doctors for his injury. Had he done so, he might be ready for next season. This may be the deciding factor in Brady's fate this fall. I still think if he's not ready, they might cut him.

What future without a good quarterback. Im sick of watching them barely making 500 most years. they ve got to do something. We ll waste all of Adrians good years if we dont get one now. Invest in someone that is young and is progressing great, instead of taking another risk on a maybe(flop!)

Even though Hasselbeck is getting old he would be a very good fit for our offense. Of course we would need to draft another quarterback because he won't play too many more years. We'd have to trade a draft pick to get him though(3rd rounder maybe).

It would be nice to get a young guy that is progressing but nobody gives up those guys to another team.

NO WAY would I give up 2 first round picks for Cassell! Those picks could be our quarterback of the future. Two very good guys coming out this year(Stafford, Sanchez) and a bunch next year.

I'd take alot of different options over Cassell, I agree any qb would look good throwing to moss and welker...EXCEPT t-awesome lol.

I'd take Hasselbeck or Anderson over Cassell in a heartbeat...I watched tons of Cleveland games where the recievers dropped half the passes, alot of them in the endzone. We have a better squad then Cleveland I think Anderson would do good here...better then what we have forsure imo.

Your memory is incorrect and looks like it might need work leechbait. smile I do believe those who negative name call the Vikings are not true Vikings fans.

T-Jack is better than Frerotte and is as good a value as Cassel or Anderson.

We need a decent QB with savvy if we're going to deal for QBs.

Do you have a QB in mind? If so how much do you think the Vikes should give up to get said QB?

Of the available Qb's I like Anderson the most, I think he has alot of upside.

I don't think Anderson has a lot of upside. Outside of the first eight games he played when he un-seated Frye he has been mediocre at best. If you go to last year even with the drops of which some can be attributed to Anderson, there is a reason they went to Quinn who hasn't shined either, but Quinn does have more upside.

Anderson reminds me of Scott Mitchell and would make a great back-up QB.

Cassel is a system QB a lot like Tatum Bell-Reuben Droughns were system RBs.

We need a Warner-Collins type QB. Someone who is steady and savvy.

anyone think there is any chance we could pry mcNabb away from Phili?

If they had not made the play-offs I believe he would have been a Viking. Chili adores him and the Philly fans would have done their best to kick him to the curb.

I don't think McNabb comes here after that playoff run.

Sweet, thanks for that update!

what do you think the vikes would have to give up to get thier hands on McNasty?

I think the Eagles will expect alot, but they wont get it. I would think a 1st, and a 3rd or more. I think the Vikings are unlikely to give up their first rounder to any team for a QB. So I dont see this deal happening!

      There also talking a possible snowmaggen over the weekend.

      more white on the way. hopefully not much! 
    • Borch
      I might be able to make a run or two if needed with my truck.  Hopefully we don't get dumped on and get a few warm sunny days to get this stuff to settle a bit.
    • brokesauce13
      I agree. Was thinking about doing this. My issue is that it's customer service. What if it wasn't that easy of a fix and customer service was this way. Haven't had these issues with shimano or pflueger for half the price.

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.
    • SkunkedAgain
      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!
    • SkunkedAgain
      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!
