I just read an article in the St. Paul Pioneer press that the vikings are interested in david carr, vikings would give up a fourth rounder for him.

I would do that in a heartbeat. Why? A fourth rounder is nothing. Houston didnt surround him with any talent and there are a quite a few stories out there where it takes a QB a few years and a change of scenery to reach their potential. I am not saying he is the answer, but if we only have to give up a fourth rounder, absolutely, do it. How many 4th rounders can you even name?

I agree. David Carr was the highest rated quarterback the first half of the season last year. Well worth a 4th round IMO. I'm sure 1/4 of the NFL would be interested in a trade like that.

He's never had an offensive line in Houston.

I would love the deal---the Texans went through all the growing pains and now maybe (for once) the Vikings could get some of the benefits of a trade!

I think it would be a good deal for us. He's never had more than 1.2 seconds to throw before he get's hit and drops to the turf.

I sure hope the Vikes do something. Right now, let's face it, the Vikes do not have a quarterback heading into next season. Johnson is done, Bollinger is not a NFL quarterback and Jackson is about 5yrs away. I am a firm believer that you do not need a great quarterback to win but you need one that is decent and can take care of the ball. Right now the Vikes do not have that guy. I predict right now that Childress will be gone by week 5. Gonna be a long year for the purple come this fall.

I absolutely think he's worth a shot at only a 4th round pick. The guy's career was probably shortened four years due to all the physical abuse he took without any sort of line, but he's still young enough that that won't matter for a few years.

This is a no brainer. Then again we have to wonder what goes thru Childress' head. Johnson is out and having Carr could be a blessing in disguise. Not going to cost as much as trying to get Schaub. Vikes should jump on this asap. Sweeten the offer by including a player like Smoot, Kleinsausser, or Wiggins.

how's the running game in purple country? is it really any better than houston? i really don't know, not being snotty.

i would actually like to see the vikes do well with the right people but i could go either way with carr. he's worth a shot though. i don't get to see alot of nfc north games out here just 9er's and raiders frown.gif

If you purple people can get him for a 4th rounder, you better jump all over that! I highly doubt Houston will give him away for that price however. Then again, good old Mike Sherman has his hands in the cookie jar down there now and he isn't exactly a personnel/free agency guru. He's made dumber moves in the past.

I agree, you boys do need some interim QB help, regardless of whether Jackson is your long-term guy or not. Carr would give him some stiff competition.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
