    I think this is a pretty big deal... Eugene is substantially better than the alternatives Busing or God forbid Barber... Hopefully its nothing more than a 2-3 week deal

    Busing playing safety in a chess match vs. Manning on Sunday.

    Awesome.

    We could only be so lucky as to have this injury force us to play Quin at safety.

    That is an idea. But then we are pretty weak at corner. Reeves and (ugh) DRob start, with who being the nickel and the dime? McCain? Bennett?

    Big time.....this does not help at all. Eugene is a good kid, he has been busting his tail, and battling for this team. Hes a darn good football player, and this sucks a$$.

    yes, because you want play a rookie at safety who has not played a single down at the position versus Peyton Manning.

    Busing isn't exactly much more experienced. Ferguson is, want him back there?

    Basically you have three bad answers back there

    1) Talented rookie with no expericene
    2) Lots of practice experience but blah physical/mental talent.
    3) Mentally able to do the job, but with age/physical limitations

    I don't want any of them, but at least two I know what I need to cover up/hide versus "just seeing what someone could do." Also I now weaken the 2nd/3rd corner position, to take that risk...so given the terrible choices, yes, either Busing or Ferguson, but not happily.

    In what kind of world would we take a CB with excellent coverage instincts, good tackling, FS size, who can't quite burn with WR but makes plays anyway and insert him into the lineup when the opportunity arises?

    McCain and if it ain't about time to see what Molden is made of then it never will be.

    I don't ever want to see Barber on anything but special teams again. Busing wouldn't make me totally cry....but he's a special teamer.

    Just making sure everyone realized that I could not, in any way form or fashion, been more sarcastic when I typed that.

    Busing will be burnt like... like.... like.... well, I don't know. But he'll be toast.

    Brian Russell is another nice guy, er I mean slow guy, well he is a nice slow guy who is a cross between Matt Stevens and John Busing. Oh yay

    He can't be as slow as Ferguson... I noticed Russell had 9 INT's in 2003 for the Vikings... so he's got better hands than any safety on the roster I suppose

    lol 2003 was 6 seasons ago and the Vikings didn't want him shortly after that season due to his lack of speed. He didn't get faster, I can assure you.
