The 5 O'Clock Club: Playing GM - What Viking would you want?

New, comments

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere...

The 5 o’clock club aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.

If you were the Redskins GM (do we even have one?) looking down the Vikings roster, if you could wave a magic wand and make a favorable trade happen — in effect, simply pluck a player from Minnesota and put him on the Redskins team — which one player would you choose?

Share your ideas in the comments.

Bonus rewind to the Seattle game:

The final-drive pass to Brian Quick got a lot of discussion after the game, and for good reason. Not only did Quick make a great adjustment to the ball, but Kirk stood up and delivered what he referred to in his press conference as “throwing blind” in the face of a brutal rush by Seattle defenders.

I didn’t hear as much discussion of an earlier throw by Kirk to Ryan Grant, but to me it showed a similar level of impressiveness, although it came earlier in the game, and wasn’t as highlighted.
