Up here in Viking land I can say the Vikings fans have absolutely no clue what their team is gonna do in the draft.

For a team in such desperate straits at QB I have to prop the Vikings fans on not just blindly jumping on the "we've got to take a QB in the 1st round" bandwagon.  They realize that all of the top ranked QBs class have significant question marks and higher than average bust potential, and they're smart enough to know that LT, DL and DB are also significant needs and a top ranked player at one of those positions could very clearly be the safer choice at 12.  If there is anything close to consensus up here it's that the Vikings will probably NOT take a QB in the 1st but are very likely to jump on one in the 2nd.

Nope.  Mr. Favre has worn out his welcome with Viking Nation, and then some.

The only QB scenario that concerns me even a little bit as a Bears fan is the Vikings taking Mallett and him actually keeping his head on straight and shredding our D for the next 10 years.  The way drama follows that team around though I think that's a long-shot at best and a Leaf-type epic meltdown is more likely if he winds up there.

And even if Mallett keeps his nose clean, his Marino-esque mobility could translate to a short career against the likes of Raji, Matthews, Peppers and Suh.

 Saw him on ESPN today...we dont want Mallet on the Vikings.

There was a day when the Lions drated Joey Harrington and everyone on the boards just knew he was going to shred our defense for years to come.  Especially with all those weapons at WR they had.

Just goes to show that not everyone can predict the future.

If I were a Viking fan I think my best-case scenario would be that Nick Fairley falls to 12, and then with their 2nd rounder they pick up either Christian Ponder or Colin Kaepernick...  who might not step in and be the guy at QB this year but should be ready to go in 2012 after a year behind another "bridge" veteran.

I think the Vikings are going to get McNabb.

I think the Vikings are going to sign McNabb and draft a QB in the 2nd round.  And they'll spend their 1st round pick on whatever defensive player they think will have the most immediate impact.
