Disagree with the investment part.fiestavike wrote: I don't think you got my point. I'm not blaming Sam Bradford for anything. I'm saying they gave up a 1st for him and it amounted to an 8-8 season. They could not have SB now for probably a 4th-5th as the eagles are trying to slough off salary.
It was a terrible investment.
There is a very strong probability that Kirk Cousins isn't going to be available, let alone that the Vikings would have been able to win a bidding war for the guy. As for Garoppolo, the Vikings have no trade assets that would be valuable enough to obtain him in a trade. And even if they did, Bill Belichick would likely fleece the Vikings, anyway.
I look at it this way. The Vikings traded this year's first-round pick for Sam Bradford. There is no quarterback in the draft this year who is worth close to that, and any quarterback they would draft would be 2-3 years from contributing, if ever. The Vikings got experienced, first-round talent in Sam Bradford for a first and a fourth. I'll take that investment.
As for Michael Vick ... the guy needs to just shut up and be retired.
