This should be the only type of past draft analysis that is acceptable.

I took a friend to a couple games who always remarked about the amount of non-Vikings apparel throughout the dome.  Somehow it's acceptable to wear any Minnesota sports team....or a flesh shirt.


What are people going to do with their Ponder ponchos next year?

This could have been a 103-0 blowout, and nothing will overshadow Daunte Culpepper returning to the dome to get his roll on. 


Imagine how good Patterson will look when he gets a good qb throwing to him.

I was surprised to see Percy hugging Spielman.  I wonder if TarVar was given the same reception.


Luckily the Jaguars have several chances to get another win this season and give the Vikings the first pick:  Houston twice, Browns, Bills and Titans again.  This could be the year!

He played an unglamorous position in an unglamorous state so it's sort of fitting.  Most players wouldn't put in the effort to write a goodbye to the fans when they're not re-signed or get cut/traded, and coming from a lot of them it wouldn't matter.  He had a way of connecting to people in the community and for reasons other than football.

You dismiss the dead hooker like she holds no value anymore.  I'm disappointed in you, @PJD.

I guess I'm in the minority of people concerned about several tons of shattered glass raining down on tens of thousands of people, and most importantly, Purple Jesus.  The Metrodome roof wasn't supposed to collapse, but it did, and this is Minnesota.  Also, the setup they showed for the Final Four and some other events looked like they had some seats with truly terrible views that they can price gouge.  That being said, overall I like anything that is not the dome.

It looks like this is one of those game tables that converts to a pool table, and if we're lucky, air hockey.  This only leads me to believe it was an intense best-of-three tournament, and there's more action shots out there somewhere.

Jasper Brinkley wasn't the greatest, but it makes no sense to let him walk and throw money at an aging and noticeably slower Urlacher.  I'd rather see them take a chance in the draft even if it's supposed to be thin at the position.  After his knee injury in 2011 and missing several games with a hamstring injury last year, I question if he would even be serviceable for a year or two until someone better comes along.
