Update On Berrian, Rice

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 26, 2010 – 2:06 pm

Vikings WRs Bernard Berrian and Sidney Rice sat out of practice on Thursday after participating on Wednesday. On Friday, though, both players were back on the field and Vikings Interim Head Coach Leslie Frazier was asked about each of them while meeting with reporters after practice.

Frazier indicated Rice (hip) should be good to go for Sunday’s game at Washington and he said a decision on Berrian (groin) may be made on Saturday.

Another player battling a nagging injury is Jamarca Sanford (hamstring). His presence is important because he provides depth in the secondary but mostly because of his special teams/kick coverage abilities. Frazier said that because the injury has reappeared, the team will be cautious with Sanford’s return.

The injury report has not been released yet, but I’m guessing Berrian will be listed as questionable and Rice probable. Again, official word will be coming shortly, so stay tuned.

    Yes… give Brett someone to throw to other than Percy. Don’t let him go out like this man… I dont like Brett playing for the Vikings but I hate even more watching him fail like this in his final year. Give the man a hand!!!!

    I suppose though if your Brett… why play? If your out of the playoffs and not coming back next year?? Why risk it to your health? And before Chilly was fired you could say that Brad was playing him to keep his own job but now thats clearly not an issue. So why do it?

    I think Brett will return in 2011.

    Farve is not the problem….the O-LINE is the problem….Favre is getting hit every play…The line is not giving him time…count 1 2 and Favre is on the ground…..our O-LINE highly sucks!!!!

    True. our Oline isnt good at all…but Favre doesn’t help the situation when all he can do is sit in the pocket and get hit..

    @be sane…God I hope not! lol smh…I REALLY want to move on and start delevoping a long term QB

    VAvikefan, Favre has a bad foot and ankle, which would limit anyone’s mobility. A prudent coach would have taken that as well as his age into consideration and make the necessary adjustments to upgrade the o-line, before the season started. Put Webb in there now with the o-line the way it is, and you run the risk of your future qb getting hurt or him failing so bad that his confidence is badly damaged. And BSS&LAB, I too believe Favre will return next season, if only to take a mulligan on this one. He deserves to go out a winner.

    Favre could return and play could be shared with Webb– I agree, about Webb– everyone wants him in there based on pre-season games against second and third string players—- it could be totally different for him to come against real players in a real game— he needs to be nurtured into the game– the great QBs sit behind great QBs— remember Daunte Culpepper? He was thrown in as a starter as a rookie and he was good, but never great.
    Favre– 2011!!!!!

    @Vikingpride

    The vikings could end the season at 9-7 and still don’t get in because the Packers and Bears may have better records. Even if we tie with the Packers or Bears in 2nd place, they get in because of the tiebreaker. We are out of the playoffs no matter what.

  12. By Justin on Nov 26, 2010 | Reply

    On the subject of Favre returning in 2011, I don’t think he returns and I think it’s best for him to retire. His body is shattered and if he pushes it another year, he could suffer a career or life-threatening injury.

    Justin…You are wrong about the tie breaker with the bears you cant say that at this point because the Vikings still have a game to play against the bears in the dome…still play the packers 1 more time and will probably lose to the lions the next time they play them…So if the vikes win out and get a little help we are still in it. Its a long shot but we still have hope….UNLESS WE LOSE THIS WEEK AGAIN! The packers however we have the tie breaker against the vikes because the beat them 2x

    ABOUT THE PLAYOFFS — I wrote an incorrect playoff scenario on another blog post here– I apologize– truth is 4 division leaders go to the playoffs from the NFC and then two wildcard teams– there are a lot of good teams out there -Tampa, New Orleans have 7-3 and 8-3 records respectively— and they are NOT the leaders in their division– then add the Giants and the Bears or Packers– whoever does not win our division and you have 4 teams, 3 of them have 7 or more wins– We would have to win out and have incredible miracles happen to get into the playoffs.

    Oh, Jim, I must have been writing while you were writing. If we were to get hot and win out, it would still seem improbable– let’s see what happens Sunday– if we win on the road, the season of the miraculous may have begun.

    Trust me, I would love for the miracles to happen, but really, we look like a team that cant beat detroit or anyone else for that matter. I do think we will win this week, but no way we beat Philly or Giants.

  24. By HopeFavre4ever on Nov 26, 2010 | Reply

    Well I have been a Favre fan since the early 90′s that wont change. He will tale the blame for the INT’s but only about 30% of them are really his fault. True the O line is awefull the recievers fall down or run the wrong route. No one of us could throw the ball with any kind of success when you have less then 2 seconds before the D’s in your face. We could put superman in there at QB it wouldn’t make a difference. I think his pride could bring him back next year to right this ship and prove his point and go out a winner. Why not the man clearly can still play. I believe that Coach Frazier will hold people accountable, and they will rally around Favre and put out some effort or will be gone next year. If Frazier has a chance and sees a glimmer of hope I think he tries to bring favre back next year, with a new outlok on the team and a new additude and then everyone will see that Favre still has it and then he goes out on top the way he deserves too. GO FAVRE PLAY ON YOU STILL GOT IT WHY GIVE IT UP.

  25. By BE SANE, SERIOUS, & LOVE ALL, BABY on Nov 26, 2010 | Reply

    Favre should take the rest of the season off and start hard core conditioning– come back in 2011— get Moss back, go get Peppers, a couple great corners, and a new O-line and then we could start where we left off last January.

    I am always the pessimist, anyone who reads my posts knows that. I have a goofy feeling about this, I’m telling you. Remember gentleman, this is the NFL – strange things happen. Nobody but Green Bay and Philly are hot in the NFC and in 6 weeks of football things can change. I have a sneaking suspicion that Green Bay’s luck is going to run out. We’ll see what happens, it isn’t over til it’s over. Vikes need to WIN IT OUT. If they don’t, then we can start planning for next year.

    If Green Bay doesn’t beat the Jets, before Dallas and Minnesota. They’re sweating right now.

    The Bears and Packers are not a better team then the Vikings. Maybe on paper, but not personnel wise. I look for the Vikes to turn things around here in my opinion.

    The issues with Childress have been here since 2007 and I think they had a message to send. You will see a different football team this weekend I guarantee it.

    I’m not saying they’ll make the playoffs. Just that they need to WIN OUT, to give themselves every opportunity, and I believe they can. If they don’t great, plan for next season, but there’s a lot of things that unravel every year before the playoffs.

    We will murder the Giants in the Dome when and if we are on a streak, I am not worried about them what so ever. The crowd alone beats teams sometimes. The Philly game scares me – sincerely.

    But you’re right – no one knows – we’ll see what happens. It’s starts with Washington.

    Purplerainman–exactly what I have been saying— but we do need to win out for any remote chance at the playoffs– and then we would cruise with a lot of momentum. But one game at a time. There are a lot of teams with decent records, so odds are very slim, but I, like you, feel several teams are going to start sliding– they were hot at the start, now they will lose– hopefully we do the reverse. I like the guarantee— We will win Sunday, I guarantee it.

    I agree– Philly is our toughest game left– Giants are mediocre at times, and in our house– we will defeat them.

    You’re Right! I am hoping Philly will be laying down at that time (to rest or minimally play Vick). I love that the Pack and the Bears are playing the tough teams on their schedule right now. I took all of that into consideration.

    Old School, Vick is really good, but he’s not invincible. Hopefully we now have a coach that can decode him. Plus the Philly secondary has been known to cough up points. The Eagles will be tough, but they are beatable. I do like your growing optimism, though. One game at a time.

    Even the Saints game– we held them to two TDs the whole game and AP and the Oline were wearing their defense out in the first half— then we, well I don’t want to go there– the Jets game too– all we can do is look forward. Many of the hot teams will stumble now– look we did last year– we lost 3 of our last 5.

    @BSSLAB – You’re right again. Perfect example – if we didn’t lose to the Bears last year late, I think we play at home against the Saints – if I’m not mistaken.
    Obviously the Saints could have won and so forth but I think folks get the point.

    Case in point: You never know who’s going to show up at this time of season. I for one, am keeping my fingers crossed. If anyone could do it – it’s Favre and this particular football team. I am not a fan of Favre personally, but he has a ton of heart out there and most players in that locker room have to feel like anything is possible with him at that helm. Take the bad with the good.

    Its a shame Moss is gone. I think Leslie could have straightened him out. He would have taken him to the woodshed.

    Anyone with more insight in why Matt Jones isn’t catching a ball from Favre?? When the Bengals let him go, I thought for sure he would be awesome with the Vikings. Of course I saw Matt play when he was an Arkansas Razorback. This guy has amazing talent!!!!!!

    Favre does not condition much from what I have seen and read— if he were to do some extreme conditioning and drink lots of carrot juice, we could have him on the field in 2011 in better shape than he has been in years.

  52. By purplerainman on Nov 26, 2010 | Reply

    I bet he would come back if they finish this season strong under Frazier. I’m not sure if that would be good or bad for this team.

    The other day I was really pushing for Webb on this blog before actually crunching the numbers division and playoff wise. I’m not sure I would agree to that notion now.

    Even with the little I’ve seen of him, I still think Webb is going to be as good as they come some day. I really hope he is taking in the experience right now.

    I don’t think so, wisconsin. He’s been playing football his whole life. It doesn’t just go away overnight. He still has a heck of an arm, great knowledge of the game, and a high competitive spirit. Put him behind a decent o-line, and you’ll see the difference.

  57. By purplerainman on Nov 26, 2010 | Reply

    For those who are wondering why Palmer? I think that with the right team and receiver set that he has the tool set to take it all the way. Right now I think he has the same issue that Drew Brees had with the Chargers. He just needs someone to come in and say “It’s all yours”.

    I don’t think Favre will like that arrangement, BSS&LAB, well intended it may be. Favre is old school. Full four quarters. A 100 percenter. Besides, I believe Singletary will hang on to Smith for at least another season. As far as Palmer goes, Marvin Lewis will leave Cincinnati before he does.

    I like Coach Frazier and am cheering mightily for the teams success to relate to his future as our head coach for years to come. If Frazier is our coach next year, I don’t see a head case like Vince Young coming in. I like Vince Young and he’s a remarkable talent. Maybe coach Frazier would have a calming effect on him. I’d love to see Brett come back next year, but I don’t think he really wanted to come back this year. We would need to rebuild our O-line to adequately protect him, and that is no small feat. With protection, he may have a better season next year than last year. He still has the arm. Purplemania, hang on to what you got for any amount of money, (Don’t give them up even for Bernard Berrian money!) they may still come in handy for you someday, but stay true to the Purple and hope for a lottery winning.

    BS&S I liked your comment on Coach Singletary. If Singletary is out of San Fran next year, and it is possible with the way the Niners are performing. Would he be someone to come in as the defensive coordinator for the Vikings next year and fill Coach Fraziers former job? Frazier and Singletary won a Super Bowl together in Chicago and probably have similar defensive schemes and philosophies.

    This year was a wake-up call for Favre. He should realize by now that his body is telling him no more. He may have survived the bouts with the ankle, shoulder/arm, and chin injuries, but that’s a sign of things to come. If he continues past this year, he won’t walk after the age of 42. Favre may be the “iron man”, but that has to end sooner or later.

    Every year a team gets off to a great start and collapses down the stretch. 2008 the Jets, 2009 the Giants, The Lions in the first half of the 20th century.

    Of the teams in the NFC near the top, which team do you think will struggle the most to add more to their win column in these last 6 gamees?

    Tampa, Atlanta, New Orleans, New York Giants, Eagles, Rams, Bears, Packers.

    I think the two teams with the biggest fall off will be Tampa, and the Bears. Tampa because they haven’t beaten anyone of any calibur yet, and they’ll have to play Atlanta and New Orleans again, and I believe they are two of the toughest teams now. The Bears, because they can’t get their running game going, Cutler can’t win a close game, and they are going into a tougher part of their schedule.

    Is it me or does is seem like Favre has been hurt more for the Vikings than with the Pack ever? Just a testament to how bad the O-Line has been for him this year. I’m optimistic that it’ll turnaround for him

    Before he got on the plane this year he should have said show me the tape that proves the protection will be better. I get the sense from Favre that he’s a ‘if you’re not going to give it your all than just don’t do it kind of guy’ (e.g. pre-season).

    I refuse to be negative this evening but, there is absolutely no incentive for him to comeback with the offensive front we have currently. I don’t doubt that he would give 200% for 10 more seasons but at this point in his career he should walk away and his teammates should let him.

    Especially after Thanksgiving. Justin, you speak reality and I appreciate your comments. Favre is old for football and he does not condition himself– but one can play with possibilities. I still can see him playing another 20 years, riding around on a little motorized, plexiglass anti-sack protective enclosure, swinging the ball out of a pneumatic chute to give extra boost to the throws. When he retires, he will be asked what it was like zipping around in that contraption, and he will say, it was not much different than the pope.

    BS&S my mistake. It was Purplemania that mentioned Coach Singletary. I could see Singletary as a D-coordinator for us with Leslie as the Head Coach. Plus Singletary would probably love to run down on kickoffs beside Farwell and lay the wood to somebody even without pads and a helmet! Don’t give Ditka Coach Grant’s office, Ditka just wants to rollerblade around the dome!

    Packers:

    Week 12 @Atlanta – Loss
    Week 13 San Francisco – Win
    Week 14 @Detroit – Loss – I have a weird feeling about this game.
    Week 15 @New England – Loss
    Week 16 New York – Loss

    Final Record: 8-8

    Bears:

    Week 12 Eagles – Loss
    Week 13 @Lions – I’m going to go with the win, but I have another strange feeling about this one.
    Week 14 Patriots – Loss
    week 15 @Vikings – Loss

    I don’t think Favre will come back. The only incentive for him to come back would be instant acquisition of proven offensive linemen in free-agency. Drafting additional linemen. Then, if he had a greater say in the play calling. At least for the first 10-15 plays and during the 2:00 minute drill. I don’t see all those things happening, I want to see all those things happen, but I don’t see all those things happening.

    Purp, you could be right, but if the other Smith keeps winning, he just might bail out Singletary.

    I honestly don’t think it would work, they have two very different personalities.

    Think of Frazier as a Tony Dungy type personality (very calm, methodical, believer in consistency and execution.).

    Think of Singletary as a Buddy Ryan, Ditka type coach (In your face, big on team play, and attitude, and hard nosed.).

    Neither is wrong – just different.

    Here’s how I see the Pack finishing out:
    Even though the Pack is 11-3 in domed stadiums under McCarthy,
    @ Atlanta is still a loss.
    San Fran: Win: Troy Smith can’t break containment on Matthews.
    Detroit: Win: Stafford won’t be back.
    @New England: Loss the Pat’s are hitting stride, they max protect Brady.
    Giants: Win The G-men are starting to show signs of a slump coming on.
    Bears in Lambeau: Win Cutler throws 4 interceptions 2 of which Packer corners signal for a fair catch on. Bears end season in terrible slump.
    Packers end at 11-5. Bears end 8-8.

    Jim: If your still up… the 4 minutes of the Arizona game reminded me of what potential our team can have when they are focused. Our overall play this year has been a collosal disappointment. My hope is that Coach Frazier can push the right buttons and get things going in the right direction. The Bears face the toughest part of their schedule with the Bears having a quarterback that is prone to some hair brain decisions, and no running game of significance. The Packer’s are for real and in as far as I’m concerned.

    Why at the moment I see the Packers continuing to play strong. We’re all basing our predictions on not having catastrophic injuries. The Packers are a lot like the Patriots. 1st priority is protect their quarterback. 2nd priority is to play sound team defense with a lot of different looks and win the takeaway battle. 3rd a balanced attack on offense even though their backs have hyphenated names or hyphenated heights. 4th Solid special teams. Teams like this can withstand more of the ebb and flow of a season, and are harder to prepare for.

    Now that the Alaskan Klutz lost on “Dancing with the Stars” the world will again come back into balance. The cream will rise to the top. Vikes get on a roll.

    Packer fan: Well said, and not out of line. The Packers are a young team. They suffer injuries, but recover and return to action quicker than veteran teams like the Vikings. They’ve rebounded from losing players due to injury and the next guy has stepped up. Since Cedric Griffen went down, we haven’t had anyone step up to fill his role in the secondary. Jennings made our safety look like he was playing for the school for the blind. Our depth isn’t as good, and that has to do with the Packer front office making sound decisions and not thinking they know more than college coaches and 31 other teams. I was wrong earlier Bulaga kept Ray (Doesn’t play well with others) Edwards at bay all day long. It was Clifton who kept Jared Allen out of the Packer backfield. They didn’t have to double on any of our D-linemen. Everyone did their job. I’m hopeful our new coach will make 53 men do the job of 53 men.

    @Packer Fan – lol. Now you’re twisting my words. I said that Detroit is going to be sensational in 2-3 years. Your point was that your team held it together injury wise, when actually your team was losing during that timeframe. Yes, they recovered nicley, but they were fortunate to catch the Vikings at home and the Jets (off the bye).

    Like I said a topic or two back, they lose that Detroit game at home – let’s say, and Percy catches it at Lambeau with two feet in (or they count Shiancoe’s catch), all of a sudden the Pack doesn’t look so good.

    Detroit is coming on strong. Which is good and bad. Good, because too many of their fans have suffocated by failing to ask for paper over plastic at the grocery store. (Bag over the heads on Sundays.) It also means they can knock off teams in the division and keep the division races heated. Stafford is the real deal, but he has been crushed. Suh reminds me of Forrest Whitaker as Roosevelt in “Fast Times At Ridgemont High.” Even though Johnson is their biggest threat, defenses can’t stop him from getting the ball due to his size, speed, and offensive scheme. Bad news is they will beat our favorite teams in the not too distant future.

    I think Webb could be as good as he wants to be. But, If you’re not hearing about development with him, it probably isn’t happening.

    There’s no doubt the Vikes will get to pick from the litter of QB’s available: McNabb, Alex Smith, Vince Young, and others.

    I have a feeling they we either release T-Jack or use him as a back-up next season. The owners of this team want to go the promise land fast, and a T-Jack does not have the skill set to pilot the shuttle but he is a reliable backup.

    Shawn: I’m going to try to push 2:30 on this post since Nova is riding “Red Bulls and nibbling on Skittles to defend free speach for peed-off Viking fans. That O’Line has been horrendous. How many times do we get in the red zone only to watch “The human watertower” -Loadholt jump off sides. Or shall I say evolve off sides. How many times has Favre been dumped and McKinnie is standing 5 feet away with no defender around him. Has every receiver ran a perfect route? I doubt it. We miss Chester Taylor picking up some of the blitz packages, but our O-line should all be on milk cartons as they are missing.

    On one hand, I wish I had the talent to play any professional sport and earn the salary and applause of tens of thousands of people for my efforts. But, it may be a blessing that it didn’t come true. Very few people know the temptation of women all over the country wanting them. Pro athletes are bombarded with “You can have your cake, and eat it too!” They don’t always understand the power of their money, fame, and what’s real and what is a mirage. I think ESPN did a story once where 60 or 70% of professional athletes are bankrupt, divorced or both within 3 years of their final game. All of us have weaknesses as our Canadian brother Nova-aye has given us in chapter and verse.

    Like I said, I didn’t want to see Randy go, especially over mediocre catering. But our best overall team effort came the week after he was gone. I look at what Detroit can do to get Calvin Johnson the ball several times each week and how the Vikes bring the guy back in, a legend in Viking history with a chance to bring home the elusive ring, and the coach dumps him and a 3rd round pick for perceived control of his team. I want them to win, I don’t want to be negative about Loadholt and McKinnie, I know Sullivan has played in a lot of pain this season. Hutch has played injured and about got Favre decapitated in New England. But just as we should have re-signed Chester, we should have re-signed Birk two years ago.

    Viking Pride 008 you must be pulling the graveyard shift at the nuclear power plant. You don’t blog in until 2:00 A.M. but still the voice of reason. If, IF the Vikes get hot, win some games, make or don’t make the playoffs, but Favre feels great about things and is having fun. I too feel, he needs to sign for next season within 1 week of the Super Bowl. He needs to attend minicamp. Practice at least 1 time per day during 2 a days. If he’s not willing to commit, then he can sell Favre bobbleheads with Wrangler jeans on them.

    Agreed Robotfan. In no way am I implying Berrian is great, but he has come up big in games with big plays. He reminds me a little of Jake Reed when Reed was our third man, behind Carter and Moss (that was a dynamic trio!). Reed, like Berrrian, tended to get injured, tended to go into slumps, but when he could play very well. I think Berrian looks very fragile, though– he needs to eat.

    Be sane, you are mad…. seriously? Berrian made BIG plays? in 3 years he has made about 6 “big plays” and he was supposed to be first tier WR. I played the spot, this guy is not even average – won’t go across the middle, won’t play position, won’t block, won’t beat a handcheck, let alone a shot at the line, he does nto have breakaway speed as Chilly thought….. Berrian has made ZERO difference in our team except for the liability of NOT having a threat at split end. be sane, you pay attention to ONE game and make your indictments of his critics; I watched him every football game he has played in purple – he is waste of roster space – you needn’t get all haughty on us – I have read your “loyall” posts of past…. You are recognized for what you are….. Berrian is waste of $millions and a jersey!

  239. By vlad19 on Nov 27, 2010 | Reply

    by the way, “key play” that mattered, Berrian fumbles at 5 yd line, giving the ball up when in scoring position…. NO wins, WE outfumbled them, only one other as big, and that was Peterson’s (Favre’s since the exchange must be complete, but everyone who knows football it was Peterson) also at the 5 yd line…. so how is it that Berian had “key plays” in NFC champ game, he had ONE as far as I can see – it lost the ball and scoring position…. Yea, Berrian!

Scanning the crowd, he notices a guy, with an empty aisle seat next to him, right on the 50 yd. line, about 30 rows up.Perfect seats. He waits till the 2nd quarter, then goes to the guy and says “excuse me sir, is anyone sitting there? The fellow answers, no, please sit down, it would be nice to have some company.The guy can’t believe his luck, sits down and immediately buys his new buddy a beer, then asks “these seats go for 2 grand, why is this one empty? The fellow answers “my wife used to come to all the games with me, but she died”.The guy says “I’m so sorry, but surely you must have some friends or relatives that would have come with you?” The fellow says, oh yes, but they’re all at the funeral.”

    A new coach won’t solve every problem we have. It’ll boost the morale, thats for sure. To go to the playoffs, you have to have cohersion between the Special Teams, Defense, and Offense. All three are essential for a successful football team. This year, the Vikings have lost 2 of the 3 (O and D) and ST have taken a hit as well. Next year should be a fresh new start for this team.

    Is this the Viking website or Iron Chef? FiredChildress brought up the possibility of bringing Moss back next season. If Rice should happen to leave at the end of the season, maybe T.O. deserves a shot. Childress has permanently scarred Moss’s reputation as a Viking. I don’t think the treasury has printed enough money to make Moss interested in coming back. When he was in New England, you never heard anything bad. When he was in Oakland, you only heard about Moss’s Smoothie business in West Virginia. He comes to Minnesota and immediately the media and our stupid coach make an issue of every little thing. He was a diversion to keep the focus off of what was really going on. I think I’m going to the kitchen for a snack with my dog Boris.

    When I’m busy and can’t walk her, I put her on a lead that runs the length of my backyard (about 150 ft.) Some suicidal Standard Poodle walked in the yard and attacked her. Bad Mistake. She flipped it onto it’s back and I had to do my best Ray Edwards tackle to pull her off. The Standard Poodle was bleeding severly from the neck and had to be rushed to the vet, it couldn’t even stand up. It was much bigger than Sonja, so I guess it thought it was much tougher. The owner called the cops on his cell phone(what an idiot) but when they arrived and realized the attack took place in my backyard, with Sonja on a lead, they told buddy to get lost.

    I agree with vlad that Favre has a quick trigger which has helped this line out. Granted A.P. will get his 1,000 yards again, but it isn’t for the great seams and holes they’ve created. Did anyone see the Gopher touchdown sweep of 12 yards today? Everyone executed their block almost perfectly and the back hit the seam and took right in.

    I think Moss could be persuaded to return to the Vikings, now that Childress is gone. After all, his campaign to have him fired was what got him kicked out in the first place, and if Frazier is still head coach next season, his Dungy-esque personality could have a positive effect on him.

I like 90 yd TDs if you can get em….. Poindexter is all about CONTROL, and he smothered this group. Leslie Frazier will allow thm to play – and we will change our view of talent and watch what happens going forward…. Tyrell Johnson, Asher Allen, Dixon, Loadholt, Brinkley, Erin Henderson, I could go on and on – the only GOOD picks were not brainchilds either, Peterson, Harvin and Rice (and Rce is the ONLY achiever of above expectations.

    i don’t think we could get a draft pick for T jack, he’s not good enough. actually, he may never play again if the vikings cut him

    This game is like………….BFD !

    It would take Greenbay to lose 4 games just to have the same record…….AND EVEN THEN THEY HOLD THE TIE-BREAKER!

    JUST DUMP THESE LAST 6 GAMES AND GET IN THE TOP 5 FOR THE DRAFT!

    DO SOMETHING RIGHT THIS SEASON!

    If by some miracle the Viking were to run off 6 wins in a row and finish 9-7 do
    they have any shot at making the playoffs. It appears that their division will
    require at least 10 wins. Does the NFC east (Giants division) factor into this
    at all? And for the gentleman who said Favre will be back in 2011 no chance
    of that. He’s beaten and battered! I’d love to see the guy catch fire though and
    save face. Maybe a 12-15 touchdown pass finish against 5 picks or something.
    Today will tell us alot. I expect a spirited effort maybe the kind we’ve been looking
    for all year.

    Congratulations to the Minnesota Golden Gophers for their tremendous 27 ~ 24 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Vikings should learn more than a few lessons from their collegiate brotheren because they still suck.

    @old school …. thats the dumbest thing Ive ever heard and Im afraid we all are a littler dumber for just hearing it

    I think TJack will play again somewhere, but we won’t be able to trade him because his contract is up. What round did we get him in 6th? The Gophers win was sweet, for the hard times they’ve had this season. Favre can catch fire especially if Rice and Harvin get to feeling 90-100%. A.P. gets running 120-150 yards per game, but it still comes down to the O-line. Jared Allens numbers are down because the Vikes are playing from behind. Other teams are running the ball more according to NFL network.

    Some of the Vikes greats of all time were not “Top 5 picks” John Randle I believe was a free-agent practice squad player, Chuck Foreman, Robert Smith, Randy Moss, Allen Page, Joey Browner. It takes some quality scouting of the college ranks, and some humility so you don’t think your smarter than everyone else. The player has to have skill sets that fit your schemes. In fact who in Vikings history was a top 5 pick?

  432. By Shawn on Nov 28, 2010 | Reply

    Conner I agree, The highest pick I remember was Culpepper at #8 I think it was, Pats found Brady in the 6th round, I just want to win and we will get a good pick no matter where we pick …. The Great Scott Studwell runs our scouting department and we have had pretty decent drafts over the last 5 years …

    I know we picked Darrin Nelson over Marcus Allen, but who wouldn’t???

  434. By Conner on Nov 28, 2010 | Reply

    I’d rather have Studwell picking than Matt Millen. I really thought when Millen was hired in Detroit he was going to make them a great organization. I guess I may have been mistaken there……..

    The Vikes have always been average to above average, so we never seem to move up into that top 5 territory. We never trade a Pro Bowl player like the Patriots do, where they gain those early round picks.

    Oh my God! I can’t beleive the moronic comments I read on this site. Are you idiots still wanting more of Brett Favre? Things were progressing perfectly until that as shole came along and drove a wedge between the players and the coach. We would have been much better off if we had never picked him up in the first place. Someone on here said it was too bad we lost Moss? You are a F’n idiot.
