    Thanx Wobbie. Appreciate the good info. Enjoy your weekend and hope you don’t have to work all of it. Take care and KEEP SMILING!!

    MGR4FUN – I have a sneaking suspicion that the 8th spot will be filled after the Housh deal becomes official. Whoever he pushes out will fill the last opening on the practice squad.

    C’mon…who needs to import trouble? Leave “Housh”
    or whatever he hails by to stew in his own soup for a couple years. Then let the ‘boys’ have him in Dallas. They seem to cater to the whims of the ‘celeb’ types.

    ALSO, we are in very deep stuff if Brett goes down. Too bad Chili is joined at the hip with his “affirmative action” holdover, “Buckwheat” at no back-up QB. It is a totally insane decision to keep that dude around for anything but trying backwards caps on for size. What a totally useless CLOWN!

    Hay Wobby, With housh probably being signed. Do think they also look at Hartwig the center from Pitt that was just cut,

    glad they are keeping Marcus Sherels. a local boy with lots of potential.

    Housh wont push anyone out. they only have four WRs

    i know they have given him enough chances

  12. By GOVIKES on Sep 5, 2010 | Reply

    Yes, Housh would push someone out as it would put them over the 53 man roster limit. Therefore, one player (any position) would have to be released.

    did they sign housh i saw an article but no offical announcment?

    Nothing official on Housh as of yet? There was a story yesterday but that has been backed off on.

    Apparently “gatoeraide” is a stuck in the stone ages. Why don’t you just call T Jack a n—-r and get it over with. Better yet, take your knuckle-dragging self and find a nice tall place to jump off while yelling “Hiel” at the top of your pathetic lungs.

    What about Garret Mills for the final spot. If not he u guys thinks will be the final

  18. By M1538 on Sep 5, 2010 | Reply

    XM radio has the Vikings going after Jackson from the Chargers. I think he would fare better than Moush.

    Also, I’m a very concerned about our QB situation. Both Jackson and Farve are FAs after this year. Again XM radio brought up the possibility of getting McNabb after his contract is up with Washington this year?

    Just something to think about.

    M1538 you dont know what ur talkin about why would we go after jackson when he can not play for the first 6 games and his contract is way to much for him being in the situation he is in. housh now is a free agent and can get started right away..

    10 defensive linemen.. a secondary in peril.. 4 wr’s.. a billizion TE’s… i have never coached before and what the vikes are doing makes nosense. forget about housh big diva.. jackson the same… payne and the other wr’s would fit in fine as a 5th wr.. thats why they are on the practice squad.. cut t-jack and find anyother QB in the league with a pulse and sign him. trade webb at the end of the year.. athletic QB’s have never went the distance in the NFL.. try and draft malette next year from the U of Arkansas.

    I think Hartwig would be great. Anything is better than our options!

    get rid od chilly at the end of the year and make frazier our head coach for a year. ask brett if he will become our QB’S coach next year and get a real NFL style QB and stop messing around with this athletic michael vick style of play. Do this and win one superbowl so I can stop watching the vikes. 40 years and counting

    why did we waste a draft pick on tripplet.. and since sidney f–ked us so hard cut him as well and find another reciever… once he comesback if he does this year he will be hobbled… Brett Farve can make anyone a star Example BUBBA FRANKS…

    The last spot if for when Rice comes back, so they dont have to release anyone

    Vikings should go after Jordan Babineaux who was cut by the Saehawks!!

  32. By Matt on Sep 5, 2010 | Reply

    Put Mills in the 8th spot, he’s pretty good, either him or Tripplet. Don’t bother getting T.J. Housh… he’s got no work ethic and the guy just seems lazy and uninterested. And if our secondary doesn’t perform I think we should bring up Sherels or Anderson (Anderson mainly for special teams).

  33. By Matt on Sep 5, 2010 | Reply

    Honestly I think we should go back to our run game and keep Favre healthy, rather than give Favre an overwhelming workload.

  34. By Matt on Sep 5, 2010 | Reply

    The game plan for the Saints should be establish the run game (which also will eat up a lot of clock time), stick to a conservative-short passing game, and hold on to ball. Defensively, we won’t allow them to run (that’s safely assumed), and we should do what we do best, which is stick to the zone coverage.

    The vikings def line will have some pay back to Brees and the Saints for their cheap shots on Favre last year.

    The worst thing that could happen is to bring in Head Case Housh. He is another T.O. who would not fit the chemistry of the Vikes. He is also too expensive. Brett can make a star out of any of our younger guys who aren’t hobbled with their ego’s. I was hoping Ian Johnson would have made the team. Good luck Ian.

  39. By Bryce on Sep 5, 2010 | Reply

    Brett Farve said it best when he said “We need to get Joe Webb on the field with his talent.” He can run (4.4 speed), catch, throw, and tackle. I hope he earns his pay check by participating on special teams (return or safety), “the Wild Viking” or in a reverse with an option to throw. The Vikings were second in offense with Brett in 2009. Imagine adding more speed and versitility the Vikings can win The Super Bowl in Dallas, Texas. Defensive coordinators would have to work harder to stop the threat of Webb on the field. Will Webb run, catch, throw or tackle? I hope to see more of Joe Webb on the field of play contributing with his raw talent instead of riding the pine. Step-up Joe Webb and play. “Brett can make a receiver example Greg Lewis,” according to a commentator. Playing and contributing to a Super Bowl win beats sitting uselessly on the bench.

    I am surprised by keeping Austin and Brown! Wonder who will get the last spot? I thought it would have been Ian Johnson. Thought Nate Tripplet would have made it too…

    surprised that Shuler made anything, still not hot on Abdullah or Frampton, but love the rest of the active roster!

    S Colt Anderson
    FB Ryan D’Imperio
    DT Tremaine Johnson
    WR Logan Payne
    CB Marcus Sherels

    Great core of practice squadders!

    To continue a post on a previous blog:

    “[Houshmandzadeh] is also too expensive.” Look up the numbers before making a fool out of yourself! Right now we can pay TJ the LEAGUE MINNIMUM and Seattle will be paying him the millions that they thought he was worth because they broke the contract!

    Who care if they give him the minimum he was a no.2 in cinci and the seachickens thought he could be a no.1 but that matters now is he has droped from a good no.2 to a very poor no.3 Javon would be better than housh because housh has lost it after he left cinci.

    I think the #8 spot stays for a couple weeks until they see how things shake with releases yet to come and will bring Walker back they haven’t filled the need before then.

    Ever heard of Steve Young?

    I agree bring Jevon Waler back, i think they will and waive someone then bring them back to the practice squad.

    He looked really sharp like GB/Denver days when healthy. Not like when he was with the Raiders.

    by the way seth olsen is a 6’5 310 lb OG from the Broncos, he was a 4th rounder last year out of Iowa, played only 3 games all as a backup. looks good too!

    Mills looked good for the PS too. Liked Radovich who wouldn’t want a big Trojan…at OT!

    I disagree about WR Jackson. With the Early Bye, and so much black and blue going around, it would be a game changer to get two big WRs on board in midseason. They will be fresh, but not rusty for the playoffs when it really counts. :I think ensuring a SB win is money well spent and it is hard to put together a fantasy team with more talent than Harvin, Shenk, Rice and Jackson in the pattern. I do not know if he is poison like TO or what, but Brett knows how to put it up for those tall ledaping targets …The reason his ints were down last year. Jackson is going to have a change of heart about his demands as he watches other players play the game and he just watches like the rest of us.

    Was Rich Gannon more athletic than Steve Young? I think the guy meant scramblers, No? Anyone remember Cunningham? He was pretty athletic, but it was the underthrown bomb to Moss that haunts me as much as ‘the run” by Young. NFL – please do not let the refs call phantom interference penalties in championship games. Everything bogus like that should be subject to review in the champoinship.

    If the offensive line od the Vikes hadn’t AWOL ,Favre wouldn’t have taken so many ”cheap shots” .Time for them to do their job.Wish Matty B. was under center.

    The Vikings should pick up James Hardy he is 6’6 220 he was cut by the bills. He looks like Andre Johnson of the texans. HE would be a great WR to throw to in the End Zone!

  56. By DOB on Sep 6, 2010 | Reply

    They should also pick up Tony Richardson because he makes any back look good and he can protect favre from getting hit.

    Why do so many people want to trash Chilly and TJ? Before Favre came to MN, didn’t TJ lead the team to the playoffs? What has Sage done in the past 10 years? The answer is NOTHING! Let management do their job and stop being critical of the moves being made. Us armchair quarterbacks are not running the team, and I am thankful for that!

    Housh signed with Ravens. We don’t need 4 TE’s, we need 5 WR’s. I still like Walker.

    Seth Olsen was highly touted out of high school, but was a late bloomer for Iowa, turned in very good junior and senior years, can play guard or right tackle.
