Payton passed up on getting a franchise quarterback the last 4 seasons. But can't really blame him, to move into a 1st round top 10 pick, you gotta give up no less than two to 3 no# 1 picks or all 7 picks. Unless they do get lucky to pick a franchise quarterback I don't expect this team to be no more than what they are right now for the next 3 years or more.\n\nSometimes being in the middle is the worst place, but there are other considerations like selling tix. Funny listening to the Vikes postgame cause they couldn't put their finger on one area LOL. I'd start with qb and coach.
