Wilf Reflects on Action-Packed Week

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 22, 2009 – 4:38 pm

Judd Zulgad and Chip Scoggins have a couple of interesting entries in their “Access Vikings” blog since last night, including reaction from Vikings Owner/Chairman Zygi Wilf on what was quite an eventful week.

“That Tuesday was some day,” Wilf told the Star Tribune during pregame activities on Friday night. “We did not know [he was coming back], so that’s really what happened. Going to training camp we thought that the decision was final on Brett’s part but happily things work out when you least expect it and he’s here with us tonight.”

Although Wilf acknowledged that this past week was exciting, he came short of calling it the most exciting week of his time as the Vikings owner.

“I tell you the most exciting week was when we won the division last year and hopefully we can build on that,” he said. “Like we always said, we want to make our team better and whoever we bring in, including Brett, I think our team will be better. So, we look forward to a great season and we want to repeat as division champs. We have a lot to look forward to and a lot to fight for.”

On another note, Zulgad said in his latest entry that Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress gave his players Saturday and Sunday off and that the team will report back to Winter Park on Monday but won’t practice until Tuesday.

    Sounds like they are getting too much time off right now. Brett needs to get in a lot more reps to understand the receivers. That was too obvious on Friday, and letting them lounge around at this point is only going to make them less familiar.

    They don’t play until next Monday, perhaps Brett will work on strength and conditioning and other work over those days to catch up to everyone else.

    It’s a nice thought, but doubtful considering his attitude towards preseason work for the past few years. The best thing going on right now is that analysts are starting to find ways to STILL call us the underdogs, not only for Super Bowl contention, but even for the division. They are citing things like Favre’s age, the NFC North’s reputation over the past decade, and improvements by other teams. So let’s hope that our reputation as underdog’s gets even better this year!

    Sage and Jackson and Booty can get it done. Farve will make it look easy if they give him time and he is willing to do dumps into the flats like Peyton has when the heat has been on. The goal line vs Cheifs and the stops/punts by the colts are the real story. The offense in a worst case scenerio will be like a child begging for another chance… If the defense continues to shine the offense will get more chances, and we may see a win streak to start the season. Favre was a great player, lets not be too hasty, let coach figure things out. Can we keep one kicker and ask others to practice punting/kickin’ too?
