    Brian, there a lot of us that feel the Vikings chances to win a Super Bowl this year rides on the shoulders of Brett Favre. Why hasn’t the organization gone after a true potential first string QB? Its clear they feel that Jackson and Rosenfel are not the answer to #1. What’s the chances of either man truly feeling the support of the team at this point, wouldn’t it have been a better move to clean house and start over? The man behind the center is the Captain of the ship, If you tell the Captain he no longer’s the Captain you might as well throw him over board! Jackson has a bad game and you have mutiny, Rosenfels is a big ? Dude, my opinion, Brett should be at Mini camps / camp helping the younger guys even if he isn’t practicing. I ware his Jersey every day in HONOR of the 40 plus year old man but he need be with his team not with the high school folk !

    How is Logan Payne fitting in to the your scheme and also in the offense? Does he look like he could slip into the number 5 spot on the depth chart and see some playing time?

    Coach Murphy, last year, what can you tell us about your plans for Rhys Lloyd and Ryan Longwell on kickoffs? Is Lloyd gonna be handling kickoffs all the time, with his ability to kick touchbacks, or is it gonna be more of a game by game situation where if a team we are playing has a great returner, Lloyd will be brought in, and if not, Longwell will handle kickoffs?

    Chris Cook displayed flexible hips in the Senior Bowl and has had a good camp so far on defense. Does he have a shot at beating out Darius for the starting PR job? —Mike H., Austin, TX

    There is a lot of hype for this coming year on who is going to be the backup tailback for Adrian Peterson, from the film last year it seemed as though Ian Johnson should have been the third tailback, however; came up short to Albert Young. Is it possible that these two rookies( Ian Johson and Albert Young) are going to be yet again struggling for the same position as last year because of the new talent, Toby Gerhart? Last year Johnson did not make the team because the lack of time on special teams that he needed in order to prove himself. So what is going to happen this year with a third person battling for the position? All I know is that it is going to be a battle and let the best man win!!!

    It’s fairly obvious this season that the Vikings will be gunning hard for the Superbowl having unfortunately fallen a few steps short of the big win last season. This being said, it would be highly likely that many of the other Superbowl possible teams will be gunning for them. Given what you saw last year with the team’s effort’s as well as the current work put forth in trainning camp, what do you see being the area’s needing the most work on both offensively and defensively to finally get the Vikings the long deserved Superbowl win?

    Hey Coach. Can you tell us (average fan) something interesting/eyeopening about NFL special teams or being a special teams coach that we might not be aware of. Fair or not, most peoples interest for special teams is to watch see if there is a touchdown, a fumble or a made/botched field goal. Thanks.

    Coach Murphy: Harvin was in the top ten in kickoff retuns last year and Reynuads yards and avg was in the top ten in punt returns. Will they both be the return guys agian this year? Can you talk about the success from last season and what the goals are for the return teams this year?

    Do you think if Childress made a point of protecting Brett better it might make the decision to come back easier? He did a terrible job of protecting him on the field last year.

    Tom waddle of espnchicago has been reporting that Bobby Wade perpetrated the Favre retirement story by texting some of his ex teammates and friends posing as Brett…The elaborate hoax/joke resulted in the media firestorm created by Judd Zulgad….Rather than call a man a liar, can he verify his sources of the story? I guess Chilli was right….this is not Watergate.rt10

    I have a comment not a question. Please inform your safety, Hussein, that a recent German Soccer team submitted a case to the highest Muslim authority on the issue of players fasting during Ramadan. The Vikings coaching staff should look at the decision of Al Azhar where soccer players were deemed eligible to break the fast (and make it up later in the year) given their profession.

    What are the chances you get Everson Griffen with his speed flying down on the kickoff team?

    Should the Vikings go after Darelle Revis? We could really use him in our Secondary. How likely is it for the Vikings to get a trade for him since he is willing to sit out the entire season if the Jets do not pay him?

    would you like to help percy harvin get rid of his migrain headaches ? i am a former sufferer of migrain headaches . i was treated with .001 miligrams of chlonidine. a high blood preasure pill . you take 1 pill a day for 1 year . and you will never have another migrain headache again. i have not had a migrain in over 20 years now . please relay this to percy harvin , and have him speak to his doctor to see if this is a drug he can take and be done with the misery he is going through . i am willing to go back to my pharmacy to get the doctors name who treated me 20 years ago . maybe percy harvins doctor can speak with my former doctor. my former doc was a former sufferer of migrains and cured himself . i am baffeled why this treatment has never been made public for people who suffer from migrains . i believe its because the pill only cost 20 cents each. not as money maker for the drug industry
    the medicine somehow opens your arteries and keeps them from shrinking causing the migrain headache.

    i saw percy harvin colapsed at practice, migraines are no joke , people who haven’t experienced them don’t get how serious they are . as i told you in my last post the cure for them is .001 milgrams of chlonidine a high blood preasure pill it opens your arteries or blood vessels .i don’t remember which one. i took 1 pill a day your exectly 1 year , i haven’t had a migrain headache ever since . that was been about 20 years now during the treatment you will still get migraines but they will last only a day or two rather than 5-6 days in a row, and you will go longer periods of time without having a migrain .
    if anyone of your staff is interested in helping i will return to my pharmacy and get my former doctors name who cured me of them and foward his name so percys doc can get ahold of him and together they can treat the misery percy is experiencing.
