A road prime time game on the West coast makes for a long trip home with basically no sleep, but that won’t stop the Monday Morning Mailbag from making its weekly appearance here on the Blog. A lot has happened since last week’s mailbag was posted and there will even be another preseason game before tomorrow’s mailbag goes up.

So, if you have a comment/question, submit it/them to the Monday Morning Mailbag by sending an email to me at Remember to include your name and town with each email.

We can’t post every comment/question, but I’ll respond to every question.

    Do you have an injury update on our star wide receiver Sidney Rice?

    Hey MIke!
    I was thinking about the Sage Rosenfels situation. I was curious, what are you hearing about possible destinations he may land? Also what the Vikings may look for for trade value for him. Thank you!

    Will the Vikings ever draft the best players available, who come from good backgrounds and families; or will they keep trying to be smarter than all the experts who pass on questionable characters. Moss, Culpepper, Peterson, Tar-Jac all proved to be less than what fans expect as pros on and off the field. Personal character flaws don’t vanish when you add alot of money. Thank You.

    Do you foresee the Vikings trading one of there backup quarterbacks prior to the start of the regular season? I think Sage makes the most sense In this scenario, given his salary this year and trade value. The Vikings could be big winners in the form of a draft pick from teams thin at the backup quarterback position. what are your thoughts on the matter?

    Hey i was wondering since the vikings are looking a veteran wide receiver why dont they call Marvin Harrison for a work out. I believe he still gas left in his tank and he would be better than javon walker to teach the younger wide outs. Or do you possibly see Sage getting traded to a team in need of a qb for a wr? Maybe a team like the cards. do you think early doucet would be reasonable?

    Hi Mike would the vikings consider trading sage rosenfels to a team like the colts who need a back up quarterback, but also have a lot of depth at wide reciver that we could trade for?

    How do you think the Vikings will do this year? regardless how they lost in the NFC Championship game last year. I have been catching a lot of slack from people at work With Brett coming back I just want them to win a Championship for once and for all

    Will Rice and Harvin be ready for the regular season opener?

    With Favre back, the Vikings are now deep at the QB postion. Will we see Joe Webb moved back to WR? He was a late round draft pick as a WR. Do you think we should use him where we need him the most right now? I think Webb and Reynaud could really help the Vikings at WR now that we are a little thin at that postion. Can you address some of the questions at the WR postions? Will Harvin and Rice be ready? Will we sign someone? Are Webb and Reynaud good options at WR?

    It really is getting tiresome hearing about Bret Favre
    His decision to retire or not retire is now the funniest cartoon yet.Why does a good team like the Vikings allow Bret Favre to lead them around like a pull toy?Everybody knows he does not want go to training he retires until the first or second game of pre-season.Then you hear that his teammates beg him to come back.Next time he retires,I HOPE HE REALLY RETIRES.but I am sure he will play everybody again. so at seasons end,I suppose we will hear that he is not sure he will return for another season.God help us,we have to go thru this every year.

    Harvin has he even been checked of neck problems? I have severe neck strain and gets migraine Type symtoms and medican mostly helps in an hr if taken soon enough. I have been threw 4 yrs of doctors, and it gets old. If really sick then need shot nausia and tordal. If you have never eperienced your extremely lucky. I would love to be able to get help for mine. What what you eat and you never know when they’ll hit. It probably result of football-hope he gets better or good help. at least he can..

    What does Childress see in Travaris Jackson? It seems very clear that Jackson is not smart enough to play the QB position with good results.

    has anyone considered the fact that percy harvin may have a food allergy that is causing his migraines? A friend of mine suffered from migraines for years and after spending time with a dietition he found out he was allergic to chicken. Since then he has not eaten chicken and has not suffered from a migraine.

    Molly, you really have not taken the time to get to know Brett Favre. He simply is a guy who can’t make decisions as quickly as others. He doesn’t pay the media to pay attention to him and he is probably the most honest player in the NFL. He says what he says and isn’t afraid to say how he feels. He has said numerous times he doesn’t like training camp and he has said that he doesn’t want to come out and play and lay an egg for the season. He says he doesn’t want to let his team members down and the older he gets, the harder it is to decide if he still has it in him. He DOESN’T lead anyone around like a pull toy! So why do you come on this board and make accusations like that? He played better than 31 of 32 YOUNGER quarterbacks last year and it was his best season of his career, so why wouldn’t a team go after him? Why wouldn’t players want him back? and why wouldn’t an owner want a guy who generated revenue like Brett does and gives them a legitimate shot to win the Superbowl? If you don’t like reading about “cartoons” then skip past the funny paper section and stick with the boring business section.

    #4 Farve must learn the art and power of BESERKING if he is to win 2010-2011. Who’s teaching Farve Beserking?

    Why did Favre run into the locker room immediately following the loss tonight? Doesn’t he know that part of being a good sportsman is shaking hands with the opponents, win or lose? Maybe he needs to ride the pine a bit more this season to learn some humility.

    At the 49ers game, it did not look like the offensive could protect Favre any better than last year during the saints game. i saw the saints game this week and there was Darren Sharper with at least two unneccesay roughness against the QB calls. It won’t help Brett if they call it after he has been hit. He needs better protection. i don’t understand how the 49ers just ran right over everybody to lay Brett flat. Is there something Favre did wrong, or it must be our offense. What’s up?

    What’s the deal with the O-line?They looked terrible against the 49ers,the whole game.It didn’t matter who was at QB they were running for their life on passing downs.Does the coaching staff have any game planning to better protect our guys,and why is our star running back playing at all in the pre-season?What is the coaching staff thinking about?

  20. By Rogerthevikefan on Aug 22, 2010 | Reply

    Herrera let the two linebackers go right by so petey had no chance to stop them so farve was in the ground. Can some one tell 64 his job is to make sure the qb is up right? Who knows might help if someone tells him his job repeatedly? Like mabey every down.

    Joe webb was awesome. Yes he was sacked for a saftey. But he got away from a couple and that 45 – 50 yard run looked to easy. Man he is awesome.

  22. By vikesfan10 on Aug 23, 2010 | Reply

    Joe Webb is awesome! i agree with you and yeah he got a saftey but he also got away from that four people trying to bring him down none of our other qb’s can do that he is strong and looks more comfrtabke then jackson and sage and has more talent then both of them he will knock off either sage or jackson for a roster spot

  23. By Carl K on Aug 23, 2010 | Reply

    Webb has awesome talent… He is a strong fast versatile player. I would love to see what he could do catching the football in a little open space. I think he could be as good as Rice and Harvin. I like what I see at QB from him, but it is time to see what he has at WR.

    Do you think that the Vikings have the making of a McNabb type QB in the form of Joe Webb?

    And with this in mind do you think Minnesota could be a potential destination for Mr McNabb? Would be a great fit with the Vikings…..


  25. By GWVikes on Aug 23, 2010 | Reply

    I hate to be critical so early, but I have to say that Gerhart has a long way to go to get close to Chester’s level at that position. Webb could be the added demension we need at QB. He would certainly have the ability to keep the defense off balance on obvious downs. Can this guy throw the ball? I have not read or seen anything on him.

    would you like to help cure percy harvins headaches ?

    i am a former sufferer of migraines, i was cured of them simply by taking 1 pill a day for 1 year the pill was a high blood preasure pill chlonidine .001 miligrams , although i did not have high blood preasure it was perscribed by a doctoe to me to cure migraines. the pill opens your blood vessels letting the blood flow to your head.. if you get back to me i will go to my pharmcy and get my former doctors name and foward his name to you so percy’s doctor can reach him and explain how his treatment cures migrains .

    i have not had a migrain in over 20 years now . i also suffered siverly as percy is doing now, vomiting from the severe pain . i was at the hospital almost on a weekly pasis getting shots of morphine for the pain when i was fortunite to meet the doctor who cured me . he also was a former sufferer of migrains and used himself as a guine pig to find the cure . i am amased the treatment is not well known . i think its because the cure is so cheap the drug companies don’t want it known about the easy treatment . the chlonidine pill was only about 25 cents a pill 20 years ago and you are cured in 1 year .

    Hey Mike!
    I would like to get in touch with Percy Harvin’s trainer. I have had migraines for 12 years and after seeing multiple neurologists and trying every medication and treatment for migraines, I have for the first time in my life found some relief! For the past 2 months, I have been on a strict diet. It has included the elimination of the food additives, MSG and Aspartane. I also don’t eat processed foods and try to lower my salt intake. The results have changed my life!! The foods you eat can play a major role in managing your headaches.
    Would you please get this message to someone who can help Percy? I am a walking example and would not have believed this a couple of months ago. Thank you so much!!

    Hey Mike,
    I have one simple question for you. When is someone going to get into the face of Bryant McKinnie and get him to realize that he needs to get his mean streak going?

    Are the Vikings or anyone else for that matter ever going to come out and say what is specifically wrong with Sidney’s hip. This is obviously alot more severe than what they have been playing it out as.

    THIS IS SOMETHING I FOUND ON MIGRAINES THAT MIGHT HELP OUT PERCY HARVIN. It’s called (actiflex) all natual manuka honey! Made from bee’s.You let it absorb into your body by putting it under your tounge.

    @Ben – It was the same with Antoine’s injury early on last season. They gave us the impression that he would only miss one game immediately after the injury, but he went for something around 10 weeks without stepping on the field, if I remember right. The silence to the extremety of his injury really disappointed me, as I’m sure many other fans, with how long we had to wait for him to return. The team still did well without Winfield, and now it appears that we intend to continue on without Rice for at least the first couple of games since the team made a move on another WR this week. Let’s just hope that Javon Walker can fill in as well while Sidney is gone as the likes of Asher Allen and Benny Sapp filled in during Winfield’s injury.

    When the Vikings introduced their newly designed jerseys, several years ago, didn’t they also introduce purple pants, as well? If so, why do they not wear them?
