Is sure to quickly attract the bitter Packer fans desperately trying to reclaim their glory days. Just don't EVER get rid of Ted Thompson, ok, Packers?

He's saying because everyone gives Walsh the credit for that offense that Burns had run for 6-7 years before Walsh even started as a head coach in the NFL.

Damn Sid, I was hoping that you were going to say that Redmond wants to come back as a coach, his playing days are over.

I don't know what it will take to keep Redmond next year. I think he has a very positive impact on the team when he plays, and when he is not playing.

Do all the players love playing here and want to stay, until the subject of money comes up and when it isn't top dollar they up and leave? I have two words to test their sincerity, league minimum.

I'm glad Sid and Longwell both can point out the benefits of kicking in the dome. Another in the long line of reasons not to build the team a new stadium. As for Walsh vs. Burns, it's not about the offense, it's about the Superbowls won with their respective versions of the offense, with which Burns comes up short.

Have the Gophers signed any top offensive linemen this year? Winning starts in the trenches and the current group isn't getting it done consistently.
