Zigi Wilf, can't you develop your own players? Raymond T. Rivard photograph

The Minnesota Vikings....Packer Wannabes!

Enough is enough!! This is an open letter to Mr. Zygi Wilf of the Minnesota Vikings.  Are you that pathetic of an owner that you can’t build your own team?  Does your scouting staff stink so badly that you have to look eastward to take our scrap players because even our worst is better than your best (minus Adrian Peterson)? Since 2005 you have coveted Darren Sharper, Ryan Longwell (2006), Robert Ferguson (2007), Brett Favre (2009) and you have been unsuccessful in trying to get William Henderson, Aaron Kampman and James Jones.

Brett Favre as a Packer

Can’t you find your own players?  What is even sadder is that out of all those players the only one who amounted to anything was Longwell and you cut him!  Favre came close but in the end did the best thing any Packers’ fan could wish for, he crushed your hopes and dreams of a Super Bowl with a final season-ending interception. Those of us in Green and Gold thought maybe you would have learned by now and tried to draft and develop your own players.  If you like our model so much, then copy it, follow it, and use it.  Heck you can even clone Ted Thompson, if you want to be like us that badly. What have our free agents done for you?  Since 2005 you have a record of 64-64 with two North Division Titles and have played in three playoff games and lost all three. After getting rid of those players you so happily took, we have gone on to a record of 78-50, three North Division Titles, 10 playoff appearances with a 6-4 record, and a Super Bowl victory. So it is clear that as you keep taking our players, thinking it will improve your team, you are actually helping us to be better and more successful.  So with that in mind I gladly will give you Greg Jennings and Jermichael Finley today for another Super Bowl Lombardi Trophy tomorrow. Open your eyes, wise up and realize that you cannot be what we are.  You do not have the fans that we have, the history we have and more importantly you do not have Lambeau Field.  You play in an inflated garbage bag (yes I have been there and yes I know it is inflated because the best thing about that place is when you leave, you get sucked out the doors!). So my advice to you is, you will never be any better than a bunch of Packer wannabes.  Man up, and develop your own players.  Maybe then you won’t have to rely on our scrap heap to try to be what we are!  CHAMPIONS GO PACK GO
