The Minnesota Vikings have opened up the 2010 campaign with two straight losses. Coming off of a very successful season in 2009, this has to be an odd feeling for the Vikings. The only connection that had any relativity today was Brett Farve and Percy Harvin. Adrian Peterson carried the offense and looked like the Adrian Peterson of old. The defense looked solid at times, but lost at other times. So what’s next for the Vikings to get back on track? Honestly I think it’s the trade for Vincent Jackson of the San Diego Chargers. If traded before Wednesday Jackson’s suspension would be lifted earlier for his new team. With Sidney Rice being out for at least the first 6 weeks, will the Vikings take a shot on Jackson? Personally I think it would be a good move. After watching the first 2 games, I haven’t been impressed with any of the receivers. Visanthe Shiancoe has been the biggest receiving threat, but he is a tight end. I think adding a legitimate wide receiver is what the Vikings need. There’s been a lot of talk that the Chargers are asking way too much for him, but the Vikings Super Bowl window is closing quickly and they will probably be willing to give up a lot. Look for a lot of talk to come up between the Vikings and Chargers before Wednesday.
