@rpmwr19 with the late entry :ph34r:

Of all the all-time players out there, you want Barry Sanders? I feel like Cook (who I think is going to be a top-5 RB), Murray and McKinnon is a very solid trio. You don't want a OL, or QB, or DT?

Barry is my all-time favorite player, but still....

I was a Winnipeg Blue Bomber fan in the 1950s & 1960s.  Then, in the later mid '60s our Grey Cup Winning coach, Bud Grant, became The Viking's coach.  But, i was actually a Vikings' fan from the awarding of their franchise in 1960 (before they even began in 1961), because they were the only NFL franchise anywhere near Winnipeg.  I've followed The Vikings since their expansion draft.  That's about 57 years now.  I hope they win The Super Bowl soon!  B|
