To start, I will say that many of you feel that Madieu Williams needs to go, and a lot of you have good reason to suggest so, but it’s unlikely to happen this year thanks to the restructure.
With that said, the Vikings have plenty of people to work with, but not a lot of depth.
Chris Cook and Cedric Griffin is coming off of injury, Williams severely underachieved last year and needs to show he is worth the $5.4 million, and the rest of the group needs to have a solid position to work for 16 all 16 games.
Most of the players in the entire Vikings secondary are multi-purpose (meaning they can play multiple roles such as DB, S, and nickel).
But when you shuffle players as often as the Vikings did in one season, a certain level of discord and chaos seeps into the overall execution, deteriorating what the team tries to do.
The Vikings weren’t bad in coverage last year (10th), but this team was viewed as a top five defense before entering the 2010 season, and much of that assumption is still valid today.
The earlier the Vikings can get some semblance, the better.
I hope you guy enjoyed and let me know your thoughts on what YOU think the Vikings should do first after the lockout.
