Sunday’s Inactives Give Several Vikings Youngsters A Look

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 30, 2011 – 9:35 am

The inactive list and several other circumstances leading up to today’s game will give several young Vikings players plenty of playing time. Let’s take a look at a few of them…

QB Christian Ponder – He’ll be making his 2nd consecutive start today after a good debut showing last week against the Green Bay Packers. Ponder will go head-to-head against another rookie QB in Cam Newton, who is far and away the NFL’s most sensational first-year player. Today marks the first time in franchise history that the Vikings and their opponent will both start rookies at QB.

WR Stephen Burton – When Bernard Berrian was released earlier in the week, it was Burton who was promoted to the active roster. Not only is he on the 53-man roster, he’s active today and it looks like he could get a look at kickoff returner with Lorenzo Booker among the inactives.

CBs Asher Allen, Brandon Burton and Marcus Sherels – These 3 youngsters will see significant action today with Antoine Winfield inactive (neck) and Chris Cook on a leave of absence from the team. This will be Burton’s 3rd game on the active roster, Allen will get the start opposite Cedric Griffin and Sherels will be on the field whenever the Vikings are in their nickel defense.

    ST. PAUL, Minn. — A cadre of Minnesota legislators opposed to putting public money into a deal for a new Vikings stadium acknowledged Thursday they’d let the team flee the state rather than let themselves be strong-armed into cutting a deal at any price.

    Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, meanwhile, laid out two funding options and three possible sites in a bid to keep the team from bolting from the city to the suburbs — or beyond. His plan relies on new sales and lodging taxes or proceeds from a potential downtown casino.

    All of it comes as Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton’s self-imposed deadline for crafting a stadium plan approaches. He hopes to call lawmakers into special session before Thanksgiving to vote on hundreds of millions of dollars in public subsidies.

    The Vikings have four games remaining on their Metrodome lease, and have made it clear that they won’t re-up without assurances that a new stadium will get built. Team owner Zygi Wilf has stopped short of threatening to leave the state, but other cities craving an NFL franchise are paying attention.

    “We don’t want them to leave, but if they’re going to leave I guess that is going to happen,” said Sen. David Hann, a Republican who led a news conference by a bipartisan group of lawmakers fighting efforts to expand gambling to help pay for a new stadium. The lawmakers said their opposition extends to using all forms of taxpayer money.

    Added GOP Sen. Dave Thompson, an assistant majority leader: “I have to do what I believe is right. I wouldn’t be making the Vikings leave. It would be the ownership of the Vikings making a decision to leave if they do and the NFL allowing them because they don’t get what they want.”

    Wilf prefers a suburban Ramsey County site that could result in a price tag topping $1 billion, with half or more coming from state and local revenue streams. The team reiterated Thursday that it regards the Arden Hills site as “the ideal stadium site for the state, the Vikings and our fans.”

    The statement came in reaction to Rybak’s announcement of three stadium sites in Minneapolis, including one on the current Metrodome property. The project’s costs would range from $895 million to about $1.05 billion.

    Under Rybak’s plan, the city would shoulder as much as $300 million of the overall cost. Unless lawmakers go the casino route, the sales tax would rise 0.35 percentage point — putting it above 8 percent overall on standard purchases in the city — and an extra 1 percent tax would be tacked onto hotel bills.

    The mayor’s proposal also calls for a $150 million renovation of Target Center, where the NBA’s Timberwolves play. As a sweetener, Rybak is playing up the possibility of modest property tax relief once Target Center’s debt is restructured.

    Rybak said he’s confident he can round up the votes on his city council despite a cool reaction to trial balloons he floated earlier. He’d also need to win over state lawmakers because they would have to allow Minneapolis to impose the added taxes and let it forgo a public referendum.

    “Nobody is going to walk into this Capitol with an idea that will be met with palm branches,” Rybak said, adding, “The reality is every single idea here is going be met with very tough politics and people at the local and state level sticking their necks out. So I’m sticking my neck out.”

    For his part, Dayton is remaining neutral on where a stadium should be built. Early Thursday, he got an aerial tour of the Arden Hills site, a former Army munitions plant.

    Republicans who run the Legislature are also resisting the idea of new taxes. Some want the state to siphon money from a cultural legacy account fed by constitutionally dedicated sales tax proceeds; they argue the team is a critical part of the state’s heritage. Dayton said Wednesday he was open to the idea, but arts groups and others are aligning to fight it.

    Gambling money is also a possibility.

    One option in the Minneapolis plan depends on a downtown casino that developers have promoting for months. Rybak wants the state to sell a $20 million license and take 5 percent of gross revenues, putting that money toward the Vikings stadium.

    Minnesota is home to several tribal casinos but has long resisted allowing private casino developers into the mix. It’s not the only gambling option in play. Other stadium supporters are pushing to allow slot machines at horse tracks or electronic gambling terminals in bars.

    The added focus on gambling as a funding method to back stadium bonds brought an eclectic mix of opponents from both political parties together. They said the money stream is too risky, depends too heavily on problem gamblers and carries social costs such as higher crime.

    “We really have the marriage of two bad ideas here: public funding for a stadium and that funding coming from gambling,” said Democratic Rep. Frank Hornstein.

    Stadium backer Cory Merrifield of SavetheVikes.org said the gambling opponents were off the mark.

    “You can walk into any gas station in Minnesota and gamble via scratch-offs. You can turn on any computer anywhere in Minnesota and gamble online via poker, fantasy football and online sports books,” he said.

    Dayton and GOP leaders are due to meet privately Friday to discuss the next steps

    The Tea Party movement is a grassroots movement of millions of like-minded Americans from all backgrounds and political parties. Tea Party members share similar core principles supporting the United States Constitution as the Founders intended, such as:
    • Limited federal government
    • Individual freedoms
    • Personal responsibility
    • Free markets
    • Returning political power to the states and the people
    As a movement, The Tea Party is not a political party nor is looking to form a third political party any time soon. The Tea Party movement, is instead, about reforming all political parties and government so that the core principles of our Founding Fathers become, once again, the foundation upon which America stands.

    THAT was a facemask? The RB had his stiffarm on the facemask of Griffin and his hand whipped around and MAYBE tapped the corner of the facemask while taking the guy down. If anything, I would have called the facemask on the RB. He looked like he had a grip of Griffin’s mask while performing the stiffarm. Why should the ball carrier be free to grab masks while everyone else is punished and fined for incidental contact? Poor rule.

    The O Line is as much of a problem as the secondary.

    Charlie Johnson and Sullivan need to go …

    Asher Allen and Tyrell ( i know he hasnt played today ) Johnson need to go …

    A DAY IN THE LIFE OF JOE REPUBLICAN
    Joe gets up at 6 am and makes coffee. The water used for his coffee is clean and good because some tree hugging liberal fought for water quality standards.
    Joe then takes his daily medications which are safe because some commie liberal fought to ensure FDA standards.
    Joe then has his favorite breakfast bacon and eggs ,which are safe to consume because some girly= man liberal fought to govt laws to regulate the food indusrty.
    During Joes’ moring shower, he uses shampoo which is properly labeled thanks to some crybaby liberal who made sure that the corporation was held to standards for consumer safety.
    Joe then dresses and walks outside. He takes a deep breath, the air is clean thanks to some environmentalist wacko liberal who lobbied for holding industries responsible for polluting the air.
    Joe walks on the governmet subsisdized sidewalk and gets into his car, safe in knowing that some loonie liberal ensured that the government require all auto manufacturers adhere to loonie safety requiremets.
    Joe gets to work, begins his day. He has a good job with great pay and benefits, thanks to some lazy liberal union members who ensured workers rights.
    Joe ends his work day and listens to the radio on his way home. The radio host keeps yelling about how bad liberals are and that they are ruining this country. Joe agrees….”we dont need those liberals and big government runnig our lives.after all, I am a self-made man!”

We want Big Unions to be for the people and not for the DNC. WE want freedom and less control from the elitist of this world. We want people free to put their money where they want to, not some group saying what on and when we can or cannot spend our money, any group! Does that sound like the pawns of Big Business?

    Now Shawn I know you are a Union man and yes they do good things, I just want them to do more for the people in and out of the Union when the people are in need, Make them dues pay off. Not just going to the DNC. I am not for anyone in power who seeks power for power sake.
    So chill out on the republicans, all politicians are the issue, we put them in to do our bidding but when they get in they say FU to us. I am for Unions when there is a need for them, not for them when they are fore controlling people. I am for freedom, not any group or Party.

    I love how calm and poised Ponder looks on those 3rd and long plays. Pressure is high and he’s dealing with it well.

    I don’t even want to watch the defense anymore, even though Marcus Sherels does get in for the nickel package.

    Nice stop defense. Now let’s see the offense do it once more!

  125. By Shawn on Oct 30, 2011 | Reply

    3 and out ?????????????

  126. By Frederick Jones on Oct 30, 2011 | Reply

    Jared Allen is sensational. He should be defensive player of the year, but they don’t give that award to players on losing teams.

  127. By Parody on Oct 30, 2011 | Reply

    If Allen breaks the 1-year sack record (he’s got a good shot at it right now) there’s no way you can’t give him the defensive player of the year award. He’s been lights out all year, and doesn’t l;ook to be slowing down anytime soon.

  128. By Spencer on Oct 30, 2011 | Reply

    That T.0 better be worthit! Draw up a great play Musgrave.

  129. By Parody on Oct 30, 2011 | Reply

    Ponder is taking some good shots down field…now only if we could get a receiver with the skills to hang on to those throws! It would turn Ponder into a pro-bowler and give AP a lot more room to juke around as the defense will be respecting the pass for the first time against us in years!

    Poor punt – would have been better off kicking it into the endzone, then you don’t have a chance for yards after the catch.

    Rocksalt – the pressure is coming from the right. It doesn’t matter what hand your QB uses, you don’t roll him out in front of the blitz.

  140. By Parody on Oct 30, 2011 | Reply

    Let’s see if we can get them to bite on the play action in the first play now. Get Aromashodu and Jenkins running go routes on both sides of the field and throw it to the side where the Safety cheats up on the run.

    Spencer – I don’t blame Sherels for that one. He made a move and almost found a hole to take it back 15+ yards. The Panthers just made a good move at the last second and threw him backwards.

    Johnson and Allen are both sorry excuses for the secondary. They can’t read the opponents line-ups and certainly give them way too much room to run after the catch. It could have easily went the other way when they gave up that chunk on 4th and 13 to the Panthers. We need to see if there are any players on the practice squad to try out for these positions. We get burned every week in the secondary, EVERY WEEK!!!!!!! Cudos to Jared,AP, and Ponder. Good game Vikes!
