Like the pick of Harvin. He'll make some big plays happen. They got their OT in the 2nd round, so all is good in Vikings land.

Is Harvin more of a Love Boat guy or do his interests lie more in the Arctic Blast variety?

Excellent job in my amateur opinion of getting a playmaking wr, a road paving tackle and a solid young corner. It would awesome if we can get some of the undrafted sub 4.5 wr's and sub 4.6 rb's in for tryouts. We need more speed. I love the willingness to take a chance. Go Vikes!

now childress has to proove he can get harvin involved schematically. get him in space- screens, quick slants, ect. no excuses for brad. sage will be an upgrade and with ap, berrian, harvin, rice this offense should be good. if childress can't make this offense good it's time to kick his a$$ out the door.

If Belichick wanted Harvin that badly, he could have gotten him. He had plenty of picks to play with. In the game of cat and mouse, Belichick is the cat and "Chilly" will always be the mouse.

I understand why the Pats were so surprised.

It generally takes a QB to win in this league. It seems the Vikes and their fans have overlooked this small detail. Go T-Jack. Go Sage. Go Vikes.

I mean, what's up with the constant competition vs. bill belicheat, who say what you will about him, WINS. Why is chilly always crowing about how he pulled off some mastermind kungfu action to thwart the patriots, who barely realize we exist?
