    Mularkey is fired as Jags head coach…

    Tebow is going to the Jags…

    Harvin, I rumored to be going to the Jags for a high draft pick or picks…

    Does the Jags owner go ALL OUT to try to sell every seat he has in the stadium next fall….Season tickets could be all sold out in June IF…

    Jags hire Urban Meyer as head coach ???…

    Can you imagine the HYPE down in Florida !!!!…

    If this gang is all brought back together again…To play NFL football in Florida !!!

    AGAIN…You heard it here first !!!!….

    I’m starting to think Harvin will stay put. If he hates playing with a terrible QB like Ponder he is not going to want to go play with Tebow.

    .The only people that know Percy’s status are Percy and the Vikings Staff, and they’re keeping their cards close to their vest.

    I honestly believe that the door is still wide open for Percy. It will be his decision alone if he stays or goes, based on his willingness to participate as a member of the team.

    Note to all players … The NEW Vikings staff will not tolerate a Media Circus!

    That’s the way it SHOULD BE!

    Kiper has Ogletree projected all the way up at #7 overall now, yikes

    Parkway … Is that higher than Te’o?

  13. By Parkway on Jan 10, 2013 | Reply

    No he’s still a little ahead at 5. But if other scouts are thinking Ogletree has anywhere near that value… looks like he will be off our radar now.

    And this weekends games will be: Seahawks, 9ers, Broncos, and Patriots moving forward.

    Seahawks and Patriots in the SB. Patriots win by 10.

    Now they are saying Tebow may stay with the Jets…For now anyway ???…

    Ryan says QB position is wide open for competition…hahaha…

    Love this off season gamesmanship !!! … ;-)

    Oh My … I want Keenan Allen with our current first round pick. That guy looks amazing in highlights! Excellent hands, feet, and speed. Everything we could put to good use!

    The good thing is, Green Bay won’t make it past San Fran! Go Niners Go!

    Allen will be out of our range unless we trade up. I’d like any of D. Rogers, K. Allen, C. Patterson, T. Williams, J. Hunter. We need to get one of them in the first 2 rounds.

  20. By PurplHaze on Jan 10, 2013 | Reply

    I agree with Patterson. That dude has mad skills too. I’m gonna have a look at the remainder.

    “The Vikings made and were eliminated from the playoffs because this team features on man on offense: AMFD2k* (dont steal that)” :-D

    Yeah that would be nice. It would also be nice if we could find a “gem” for once and Lamark brown or Chris Summers on our PS would turn out to be something. Both of those guys are 6-4

    If hopkins comes out I wouldn’t mind him in the 2nd either.

  24. By OTKalil2012 on Jan 10, 2013 | Reply

    From what I have seen in Hopkins…Which isn’t a lot…

    I think that young man is a first round talent…But time will tell…

    Minnesota Vikings: Other than Percy Harvin, wide receivers haven’t been much help

    New OC, upgrade at at least one of our OG positions, one of the WR I mentioned, Ponder pulling head out of @ss: These will lead to a much better offense next year.
