Finally back from my 4 year hiatus by saving the world. How's everyone feeling about this upcoming season? The team that Emery has strung together seems lightyears ahead of anything Angelo ever did. I have a feeling we'll get glimpses of the early 2000's Vikings. Rodriquez seems a little like Kleinsasser, with Marshall and Jeffery like Moss and Carter. Looks like a fun offense to watch on paper.

yeah - it could develop into a really fun to watch offense.
Welcome home Hatter. Seems like just yesterday, LOL. Glad you're back just in time for the SB run to begin. Emery did a hell of a job of upgrading talent and adding depth. He did more for this team in one offseason than Angelo did in 8 out of his 10.

We are actually beginning to look like the Vikes offense of old. Marshall and Jeffrey don't have Moss kind of speed but what Jay wanted was a couple of "aircraft carriers" who could threaten the middle and the sidelines anyway and that's exactly what we got for him. Forte reminds me a lot of that old Vikes RB Chuck Foreman too. This offense has improved it's weaponry and depth by 100% over last year. Now if the pass blocking will just hold up we finally have an offense that can match the defense.
Good to have you here!
