    That would be the best thing they could do right now.

    Oh McNabb, please no!!! I love McNabb!!! :(

    To be really honest, I think the Vikings would be a little bit better off with Kolb. I think they need to develop around a young QB and establish themselves. They are rebuilding and I don't think rebuilding around a veteran is the best way to go, thinking long term output. With much love to McNabb, that would just fall in line with the Vikings tradition to hire somebody elses veteran QB, who may or may not be past his prime, and hope he will take them to the SB. Favre, Cunningham, ...... I see a pattern here. Better look to the long term future: Kolb. Problem is Kolb is allergic to the Packers D. I'm sure he'd just love the thought of playing a fully healthy Packers D twice a year.

    He may be good for the Vikings but would the Vikings be good for him? It would be a shame for him to finish his career with a sucky team. I think our neighbors to the west have more problems than just the QB position.

    While McNabb clearly has our number, I wouldn't worry with him playing for MN.
    Though he's a better option than any rookie or Joe Webb...

    I heard they gave Otto Graham a call, but unfortunately, he's as dead as Minnesota's Super Bowl hopes.

    I was just thinking about this the other day... if the vikings do manage to trade for Kolb, what about his #. I mean, he wears #4. They have no reason NOT to give it to him since no one has it on the team, but will Brent get all jealous? Do you think they plan on retiring #4.. he is one of the greatest viking players of all time according to some list or another. Would it be a big deal? I would love to watch that circus.

    I like your analysis Kitten and I agree with you about the Queens picking up other teams' cast offs (although I think you did forget to mention Warren Moon). It seems as though the Queens have always lacked direction. As an organization I get the impression that they have no idea where they are headed and, as a result, they never get anywhere -- especially not do Conference Championships and Super Bowls.
    They need to get a young QB and rebuild -- they are just not positioned to win the big games right now.

    That's the reason I don't want to see him go there. I honestly don't care about the Vikings, I do however like McNabb and I would like to see him finish his career on a high note. Not going down on a Vikings ship that has been sinking for years.

    I did forget Moon, LOL. Also, although not in the QB position, Randy Moss. That worked out really well for them. I think they need an overhaul in their philosophy and methodology. Clearly what they are doing now is not working. They are actually going in the wrong direction. But hey, I certainly don't want to be the one who turns the light bulb on in their heads. :)

    Shhhhhhh, Kitten. There might be a Viking spy among us. The V staff clearly doesn't have any insight or skill for putting together a winning team on their own. We don't want to send any intellegent ideas their way. LOL

    I hope they don't run around other teams forums looking for intell.

    I think they should convince Favre to come back! They will win the SB for sure if they do that! It's destiny. It's divine right!

    The Claymaker is licking his chops at the thought of old man McNabb playing in that place where he could run , but not hide.

    Kinda like the way a cheetah thinks about a zebra on the African plains...

    Fortunately for all of us the Queens aren't intelligent enough to recognize an intelligent idea.:viksux:
