Felton's return could spark running game

The past three Sundays, as the Vikings lined up to play, fullback Jerome Felton had to go home and watch on TV. He watched his teammates lose and the running game falter, believing the whole time that he could have helped make things better.

Are you kidding me? Is Frazier doing standup now! Rhodes needs to be on the field from start to finish. Bishop needed to be on the field from game one. Patterson should be there on every snap. Floyd should play every down. Enough of the comedy routine.

This is what frustrates me! Another Chilly in the making or maybe already developed with Frazier! You don't want to use the taller rookie in base because why? Sherels is no way a true corner in the NFL and I don't even understand why he made the team again. He is not that explosive of a punt return guy that you couldn't just replace him with a handful of others such as Patterson or Wright. Even though Leslie will say Sherels had a good game it really means nothing as the way Leslie looks at this is no big plays were given up by him. The guy can't cover anything! 3 others that shouldn't have made this starting roster are Carlson, what a waste of money, Zach Line, who just sucked a roster spot up, and Joe Webb who for whatever reason is being given plays just for him when he is a make shift WR! Enough is enough! Time to replace the coaching staff! This team is in need of some rational thinking!

Gehrhart was sensational at Stanford- of course he played for a real football coach, Jim Harbaugh, who designed real football plays. Get rid of Cook, he's worthless both on and off the field!

C'mon, Coach! By the time you get done evaluating Bishop, the season will be over. Get him in there now along with Patterson and several others, namely Bethel-Thompson.

I'm sorry but, Chris Cook is a BUST. That guy hasn't played a full season and when he does play, he is far, far, far away from being a lock down corner. He gets burned for long plays on a week to week basis. It's time to close the book on him.
