Two Vikings Notes

First, charges were dismissed against Daunte Culpepper in connection with the Smootgate scandal. Since all Daunte was accused of was grabbing a stripper's ass during a lapdance- probably about the 653th-most debaucherous moment of that evening- this is a good outcome. Daunte can cross the charges off his worry-list, leaving only his waning on-field effectiveness, and his three torn knee ligaments.

And moving from past to possible future Vikings QBs, the Purple is allegedly interested in swinging a deal for Matt Schaub, the Falcons' backup quarterback. Strikes me as sensible- Schaub has looked impressive during Michael Vick's frequent absences, he knows the West Coast Offense, and it would be wise to come up with a solution for the future, in case Brad Johnson is too ineffective and/or too old to continue as starter. Because no sane NFL team should ever go into a season with Mike McMahon a heartbeat away from being starting quarterback.

Yeah Schaub is intriguing, but sources are saying the Falcons want a 1st and 3rd round draft pick. That's too much for Schaub at this point in my opinion. The Vikings need those draftpicks because they absolutely have to draft some linebackers.

The only way I see it is minnesota needs to draft a wide reciever first, qb next, and in the earily second round draft a half back like marriece drew, or that derrick ross out of nebraska. I think we should trade up to get vince young myself, I mean the vikings have always had some sort of a scrambling quarterback. First was Fran TARKINGTON, then Randel Cunningham, then daunte Culpepper. WE could use Vince and that would be an amazing pick up. I mean Vince Young to Troy Williamson, that's the new MOSS TOSS IN MINNESOTA.

If Vince went to the Vikings I would run around the block with my shirt off yelling and screaming....
