Vikings Trim Roster To Get To 75

Posted by Mike Wobschall on August 31, 2010 – 2:45 pm

NFL teams are required to trim their rosters to get down to 75 players today. In order to do that, the Vikings cut 2 players, moved another to the “waived – injured” list, and placed another on the reserve/PUP list.

WR Marko Mitchell and T Bill Noethlich were waived.  LB J Leman was waived – injured (reverted to injured reserve).  And finally, WR Sidney Rice was placed on the reserve/PUP list.

The Vikings play on Thursday night at home against the Denver Broncos in their preseason finale and then are required to trim the roster to 53 players on September 4.

    OK if we had 80 players and 3 cut + 1 on PUP that = 4 or 76 on the roster. Who was the 5th player???

    There was only 79 on our Roster. They waived Small earlier last week.

    I would to see Joe Webb kept on the roster even if it’s to receiver or special teams.

    my is guess is they will keep all three back-ups and hope they can trade T-Jack for some value. Our coaching staff can’t seriously think t-joke can play better ball then sage. I think Chillie at this point is just saying T-jack is number 2 in hopes that a team will offer up something for him. Peace.

    Either way which ever QB they try and move they need to try a bit harder to get in on the deal for Vincent Jackson or maybe see if they could pull a trde for fitzgerald out of Arizona being they are in need of a more reliable QB.

    jeff we dont need jackson and theirs no way the cards would ever trade larry thats jus stupid man but ya im agreein with the rest of u i hope they keep webb he seems like a good player and i hope they keep sage and let go of jackson cuz sage is better and havin 4 qbs would jus be a waist when we could have a player that would acturally see the field and do some work

    They will probably keep Webb as a QB and trade Rosenfels, he has too much value. You guys should forget about Webb going to reciever its not going to happen.

    The Vikings would be incredibly insane to let Joe Webb go….he has the most future potential of all QB’s on the roster if you ask me…If they absolutely HAD to let a QB go atm…..well, Tarvaris would be the first to go.

    Coach Childress–I don’t care what you see in T-Jack during practice–IT’S THE GAME THAT WE NEED HIM TO DO SOMETHING!! When he plays ,HE HAS NO COMMON SENSE!! Please….. we’ve waited 5 years for him to do something. and we’ve had ENOUGH! Get rid of him!!

    Sent Joe Webb to G.B. so Mike McCarthy can teach him how to be a N.F.L. QB.

    This would only cost the Vikes a 2nd. round pick (N.F.C. north discount)

    you guys really dont know do u.Tarvaris Jackson is
    right now,better than Sage Rosendud.We are going to deal Rosendud for like a 6th or 7th round draft pick
    Jackson is only 27,with way more potential,there’s no doubt jackson hasnt looked the best this preseaon,but jackson has a big arm and with,gonna be 2 years behind
    the silverfox,jackson will grow and be a solid QB.The only reason sage looked good sunday,is because of jevon walker bailing him out of a bad throw.Rosendud gone.Oh ya and i agree with Joe Webb being able to be a very dynamic QB,sitting on the bench a couple years behind favre,this year,and jackson another couple seasons,Webb will learn alot and hopefully be a FRANCHISE QB.

    MNsportsFan, take of the T-joke goggles, If Farve had to sit out a game (and we hope not) Sage could hold us up out of disgrace, but as for Tjack, I dont see any big arm, all I see is constant scramble and no brains. LET TJOKE GO,LET TJOKE GO. The ultimate 1 million dollar bench warmer.

  18. By Aaron on Aug 31, 2010 | Reply

    One thing you guys need to know is the talent that the 2 quarterbacks are facing. That is the reason they look so lobsidded. You have T jackson going up against primarily the #1 Defenses and then Sage comes in against the 2nd stringers and also potential practice squads. If you watch the D’s they are up against you don’t get a whole lot of stunts from D when sage is in there. Don’t go crazy on the trade deals. they can’t stick it out with 4 Qbs and whoever thought getting Sage for Fitzgerald is on crack! Who are you a converted Packer fan?

    Thanks Aaron. Nice comments. Someone also made a comment earlier about the play calling when Jackson is in the game. It was pretty weak. Run,run,pass. Predictable.

  20. By MIke B on Aug 31, 2010 | Reply

    Childress is still thinking that TJack can be a pro QB and will not let him go. Sage has proven he can play starting QB and we are deep in QB right now. I would definately offer Arizona Sage in a trade for a value player or future draft pick. I also don’t see Arizona giving up their best WR for Sage, but there could be other players that we would need. Webb may or may not be a future great and I wouldn’t risk him on waivers. Sage is the odd man out as I see it. I only see T Jack going if T Jack asks to go and I could see where they both could be asking for a trade.

  21. By govikesgo! on Aug 31, 2010 | Reply

    I agree with Aaron. Tarvarus is not the second coming of Joe Montana, but has faired OK while on the field. Yeah, he has yet to win a playoff game and is only slightly better than 500 in the W/L column, but nobody has seen him in a real game since 2008 vs the Eagles. Don’t get me wrong, he’s still only about 25th best in the league as a starter, but with a supporting cast can win some games. As for Sage, he lit up the Rams for 300 yds in the 1st preseason game. Are you really that excited? Some highschools have better secondaries. That said, he’s probably equal to T-Jack, take your pick. Webb will become the franchise QB, and will learn a lot this year from the Hall-of-Fame Favre.

    Focus on Favre & the 2010 season! T-Jack or Sage are not the QBs for our future. The following season we will be searching for someone to replace Favre. Lets enjoy Brett while he is here!

    I think we should Keep T-Jack, I think he is great so great that he has a legit shot at a Lombardi……..I also believe there is a tooth fairy and the twin city sewers have aligators and santa flies around the world with raindeer in 12 hours and santa is real and mermaids exist and dragons still fly in europe right in draculas backyard and star wars is based on a true story and ……..

    Jackson trys to be michael vick but he makes many bad decisions in games, saw him live in frisco this pre-season, should have dumped to toby gerheart on multiple occasions but instead threw it away, get rid of him.

    From 75 players to 53 Players is a big cut – Most will likely go to the Practice Squad –

    I do like Joe Webb becoming a starter in the future –

    Ian Johnson looked good –

    It hard to figure out who they will cut and way -

    Would someone please tell me where they get the opinion that Sage has proven he can start? Look at his track record of starting and you will see this is just not true. The last season Jackson started (played 9 games) he did far better than Sage ever has while starting.

    T-Jack needs to be gone. Sage has had a better preseaon, but he is no starting QB in the NFL. webb has showed signs of greatness. Next yr it is going to be interesting.

  31. By PurplePeopleEater on Sep 1, 2010 | Reply

    How many of us have seen Sage play in a real game? I’m going to guess very few, if any.

    How many of us is capable of being a successful coach in the NFL? Given the fact that nobody commenting in here has even been considered as a coach for any professional team, I will be guessing the answer is less than very few.

    So to those of you who see these guys (Sage and Tavaris) playing in PRESEASON games who think they know better than numerous NFL coaches on the subject, get a clue. These guys are playing with a majority of the OLinemen in front of them that won’t make the team, they are throwing primarily to back-up WRs and others that will be cut, and they are playing with a very limited, predictable playbook.

    To make it even harder to guage the ability of the two against one another, they are playing against a large mix of non-equivalent defenses, even in the same games. The closer to the end of any preseason game you get, the lower the quality of the opponent. Does anybody remember when Sage threw that lucky 4th-down pass to Walker? It just happened to be his last play in the game before Webb took over. So it was arguably the easiest opposition he had all night, and it still came down to an unbelievable play by the WR to hang on the catch.

    So let’s all try to keep our cool and remember that we are not smarter than the guys making the decisions. But if any of you are certain that you are, then by all means please go submit your resumes to every NFL team out there. It would be an enormous injustice to the league to keep your skills unused on your living room couch.

    Well I think that Chilly was using the pre season to see if he could get trade value or if T-Jack was ready that is why he got to play with the 1st stringers. I think Sage is a lock to stay a we develop Webb. You can only protect someone for so long. So “So Long T-Jack”. The master is here for his finial season and we need him to show the young Webb how it is done. Don’t be surprised to see a wildcat with Webb.

    You make a great point but the so call coaches that are on the sidelines made the biggest blunder and send in 12 players on the most important down in Viking history. Thus the pass instead of a running play and we sit home and the underachieved Saints go to the SB. I will stick to my couch and keep yelling at the TV as I have for 40 years as a Viking fan.

    You are all off a little bit, in my opinion. Tavaris is never going to be the QB we all want him to be, not even close. The best that we can hope for with him is that he doesn’t get any of our receivers killed waiting on a ball that he threw a half second too late and behind them. Sage is never going to be a good QB, he’s been in the league over a decade and is still undependable. From all reports that I’ve heard/read, Webb is struggling with the mental aspects of the game in practice. So what I see out of him is actually LESS that what we’ve gotten out of Jackson. Tavaris reportedly works hard and does pretty well learning in the classroom ( he just can’t translate that to gameday ). So I believe that the only viable QB we have on the team is Farve, the rest are just band-aids. Why do you guys think that Arizona is going to trade for any of our QBs? Anderson is about the same caliber player as any of our back-ups, maybe better. They can wait til final cuts and grab a QB as good as anything we have to trade.

    Remember, teams almost always take on the personality of the head coach, and Childress is a MEDIOCER coach at BEST. I will not rehash the NUMEROUS mistakes from the saints game. The WORST thing to happen to this team was the Wilf’s getting overly excited about a good start to the season and giving Childress a BIG EXTENSION with 3 years (2 ?) remaining on his exsisting contract, COLASSOL MISTAKE !!!!!! Childress is the most inflexible coach…. to INSIST that T.J can play CONSISTANT winning football because he’s “done some good thing’s in practice is ASSINIINE !!!!!!!! Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different outcomes !!!! We have a perfectly good center on our roster now and for the past 4 years, he started 4 years in colllege with some 160-190 pancakes, allowing 0-1 sack(s) all conference, and on and on…..in the S.F. game he was FLATTENING people 5 yard’s off the line of scrimage, ( I KNOW against 2nd and 3rd stringer’s, but he can only hit who’s there) he’s 6′-6″-328 lbs and that is the ONLY “reason” Childress won’t let him play his natural position, the fictitious NFL player position size chart say’s that is too big, that QB’s can’t see over them, ASSININE!!!!!! Aren’t linemen supposed to “sqaut” or bend for leverage ? Doesn’t the QB ALWAYS move in the pocket, and throw BETWEEN or OVER the lineman??? Put him at center and Degere at guard and we MIGHT have a chance,,,,, Herrara wasn’t that good at guard WHEN HEALTHY, now he’s supposed to be a good center???? C’mon Childress and smell the – – – – you’re shovelin !!!!!

    You lost all credibility when you start talking about Ryan Cook playing in an NFL game. Do you not remember when he was starting for us 2 years ago and he racked up penalty after penalty and consistently got beat off the line?

    He is the worst offensive lineman I’ve ever seen play in a purple uniform.

    I thought Ryan Cook was our top backup at all positions. I too am a little curious why R Cook is not in at center ahead of Cooper and Herrera. Cook looks good at center so far in the preseason against the 3 team D.

    How can anyone honestly think Tjack is any good?Other than one series last year,when have you seen him play more than 6 downs?He is no good.He may practice well but on game day he has NO accuracy,cannot take his eyes off his main reciever and cannot throw down field and hit his mark to save his life.Its so obvious when he goes in the game its run,run,pass and the pass is cuz we still have 9 yards to go.Chilly is to prdictible when Tjack is in and Tjack is not a good QB.atleast sage has walked the vikes down the field.Ill bet Tjack cant walk the vikes down the field weither its 2nd , 3rd stringor a high school team defenses.

    I think you all are missing the point if any of you have actually played football and or coached ( I have and do) you would know one of the first things they teach everyone on offense is to read defenses. T-Jack has a real hard time reading and understanding defenses. If his first read is not open then next thought is run. Plus he cannot audible out to a play that could have a good chance to succeed. Gus proved this 2 years ago and Favre last year. Brad will always keep him #2 though because he has stuck his foot in mouth to many times in support of T-Jack. P.P.E. do not knock those for giving an opinion and I will say it is easier to coach someone who understands the game (Sage) than someone who has just got athletic ability but cannot grasp the game (T-Jack).

    i 100% agree with MNsportsFAN, i dont even know why the vikes traded for sage in the 1st place. Look back to 2008, granted tarvaris wasnt great, but he was definitly better than frerotte(another QB chilly thought was better). Bottomline is, if Favre goes down, i want Tarvaris in the game way more than i do sage

    Joe webb is just like Tjack, lots and lots of talent and potential but will never be a successful nfl quarterback we need to look at next years draft and hopefully make a move and trade up to get a prototypical nfl quarterback (like aaron luck from stanford or even ryan mallet from arkansas, i hope we keep sage just in case farves ankle isnt ok and we all know tjack is a injury prone player.

    I don’t see the big deal with Joe Webb. Sure he can run, but so can TJack. There have been a lot of wide open receivers this preseason that he didn’t even see. This is exactly what TJack looked like his first year. Besides him maybe being a little bit faster, I don’t see any difference.

    MNsportsFAN, I totally agree with you sage is no where near tjack for one he is a lot older and two the recievers have bailed him out and makes him look good. Last time this happened we got rid of moss instead of culpepper and sage a white skinny verison of culpepper!!! Webb has a good future as does Tjack! you guys wait til next season when he can actually show himself but it wont really matter because you look at the little things he does wrong instead of the things that he did to get the win!!!

    I can see the four QB’s in the roster this year, they need to get rid of Lloyd as kick off specialist. Next year when Favre retires (I really think this will happen), and having Rosenfels under contract, perhaps the Vikings could go after McNabb, he hasn’t signed any extension with the Redskins so it is a possibility.

    I think T-Jack will look for a fresh start as long as Childress doesn’t insist he is the future. How about McNabb as the #1, Sage as the safety net and Webb learning from another seasoned veteran for a starting spot in 2012.

    T-Jack is horrendous and we need to get rid of him already. Nobody can stomach it when he enters a game. I attended many games last season where the Vikes led be a lot in the fourth quarter. In came T-Jack and everyone got up and left. But none of us were saying “we are u so far that it doesn’t matter if he is in the game”. Instead, everyone mumbled the same thing, “if there is one guy that can blow this solid lead, it’s T-Jack.” Sage, on the other hand, led the Dolphins and Texans to a bunch of second half comebacks in his career. Get rid of T-Jack already and hang on to Sage. Sage is a solid backup who knows the game.

    T-Jack is not an NFL quarterback. He’s just not good enough. Period. Joe Webb has a lot more potential than T-Jack ever did. First of all he’s smarter than t-jack. He make quick decisions and finds the open receiver. He DOESNT check down to a covered runningback for 3 yards on 3rd and 10 like T-jack does like its the best thing to do in that situation. 2nd of all he is faster than t-jack, 3rd he is much shiftier than t-jack. The vikes need to try and dupe another team into taking t-jack in a trade or just cut him. The reason the vikes lost to the saints is they didnt establish the run and it caught up to them fast. hopefully they wont make the same mistake twice…

    You cut TJACk, they have tried several times to trade him and nobody wants him. Its that simple. If 3 games in we are down a QB go sign him again he will be available. Plus I think bonus money would be an issue with sage and not TJack.
    Same thing goes for the 2 backup RBs Johnson and Young. Both have zero value and will still be sitting by the phone if needed. Thats three that can go.

    You guys, dont discredit Coach Brad Childress. Yes he made couple mistake of drafting TJack and that last play in the New Orleans game but come on! You all may think he sucks as a Head Coach but each year he has obviously shown improvements and our record shows that. I am sure he has learned a lot from Brett Favre as well, so quit bashing on him getting that contract extension and enjoy the football games like how we always have. Dont start making yourselves sound like the Packer fans, you guys are Vikings fans, ENJOY the game and more importantly…. KEEP THE VIKINGS IN MINNESOTA!

Dump the joke, let Favre teach Webb how it’s done, and keep Sage as back-up for this season. Either way, you’re ALL forgetting one very important thing: This is a VERY, VERY good football team and we ALL BLEED PURPLE!!!! GO VIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    everybody needs to settle down and relly look at the situation. this is preseason the other teams defense is plain and bland. no one is going to show every thing they have to the offense, wait until reg. play when their tying to scheme against the QB. if and this is a big if favre goes down i will feel a little buit more comfortable with a vet. QB that knows the offense and has some type of relationship with the WR’s.if he doent work out fine throw sage in but give the man a chance to prove himself that he can do job he was drafted for. with two seasons behind my opinion the most intellegent QB of the west coast off. something must have been learned. AND are all of YOU who have been bashing willing to give a rookie or a turnover machine the fate of a playoff caliber teams chance at the super bowl? everybody thought that Tjack was the answer when he was drafted lets give him a chance to prove it. im a Tjack believer! go vikes!!

    Comparing Rosenfel and Jackson is like apples and oranges. Jackson is more athletic with a better arm mechanics and legs, but to put it nicely, he isnt the sharpest crayon in the box! Rosenfel is smarter (not hard) but doesn’t have the abilities that jackson has. Webb seems to be a very well rounded QB with head and talent so yes he likely can be the franchise and wave him would be very bad. Trade Rosenfel (higher value than Jackson) Keep T-Jack for the season but invest all effort and training into webb to be the guy next year. ***PRAY TO ODIN*** that nothing happens to the old man this year and that he has a better than his average season.

    Wow, some of you guys don’t have much of an eye for talent, do you? ‘Webb can run, and TJack can run, what’s the difference?’

    Really? You don’t notice that Webb runs _under control_ while TJack runs like a scared rabbit? You don’t notice that Webb sees the whole field, while TJ stares down one doomed receiver? You haven’t noticed that Joe Webb is an athlete of Randall Cunningham magnitude, while TJack is a track and field guy who happens to be playing quarterback?

    I can kick a football, and so can Ryan Longwell. What’s the difference?

    T.J. Houshmandzadeh is available . The Seahawks are looking to get rid of him. Should the Vikings invest in him?
