Scoggins: Decker's feet are firmly planted

He stars in Tebowmania and has a rock-star girlfriend, but the ex-Gopher still lives up to his blue-collar reputation.

Would anyone here be willing to hypothetically swap Ponder for Decker and Tebow?

Obviously, Deck and Jessie are Golden. She even looks a little like Goldie.

After watching Decker bail out Adam Weber, and his wobbling, misguided throws, it's no surprise that he's doing the same for Tebow and Denver. Another guy the Vikings, and the oaf-king (Spielman) missed on!

They are like the Gophers. Always draft or recruit guys from another state far away. How about getting our guys. Just a few to think about. McCale, Moiltor, Jack Morris, Dave Windfield. Not one played for our pro teams in their prime.

Jesse James and his high school team just won the state tournament. Not bad for a kid from Rocori High School.

I hope Decker gets a nice ovation from the Vikings fans this weekend; he deserves it.

Between Weber and now Tebow...man, I wonder how good Decker could be with an accurate QB!

I will always wonder why the Vikings did not draft this guy? Don't the Vikings need some good wide receivers now?

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Talented, AND hard working.
