Well, the Pro Bowl is based on fan voting so what else do Vikings fans have to do at the end of the season?

Do you mean after they have been eliminated from the playoffs? Technically, that is more like mid-season. Laughing

Patterson's the real deal. He's no joke.

Did Spielman draft Apete?

Ted's drafted way more than 4 pro bowlers. Let's see, Aaron, Clay, Eddie Lacy, just off the top of my head. Did Finley make it? What about all these WRs? Bulaga?

How about putting up win-loss numbers and percentages?

Of course, in Ted's tenure the Packers have lost more playoff games, but then again your team does need to make the playoffs before they can lose.

I think if you go by what really matters we got a Macy's and the Vikes got a K-Mart. At least that's what it looks like when you consider little things like overall record, division championships, SB's, etc.

Didn't KC have 6 pro bowlers 2 years ago when they won 2 games?

The Browns I think had 4 or 5 guys go last year.

Not a good way to judge a GM.

The viking players and fans also have plenty more vacation days than Packer's fans and players.

Are you really trying to justify Uncle Teddy's 9 drafts to Spielman's 2? Really?
To answer the question about the players-

Finley- No
ALL THOSE WR? Nelson- No Cobb- No Jones- No. Jennings did. Bulaga- No.

I knew one of the WR did.

Doesn't Mike McCarthy sometimes take his players bowling during training camp? Or doesn't that count.

I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.
