Receiver Health In The Spotlight

Okay, let’s face it, my headline is inaccurate.  In the spotlight is the Favre-Sterger investigation and the drama surrounding Brad Childress and his control, or lack thereof, within the locker room.

Regardless, the most important thing right now is a win in Chicago on Sunday, and two guys that could help deliver that are Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice.

According to Childress, Rice faced a few minor setbacks with his hip this week but still practiced “very hard” on Thursday.

“I’ll be interested in watching him come back again (Friday),” Childress said of Rice.

Harvin, meanwhile, missed his second consecutive day of practice while dealing with his all-too-prevalent migraine issues.  Harvin reportedly visited doctors due to the issue on Thursday.

Cornerback Asher Allen (concussion) and safety Jamarca Sanford (hamstring).  Brett Favre returned to practice on a limited basis, along with Pat Williams and Phil Loadholt.

    I hope the players can focus and rise above all this clutter and chaos! We need this win against da Bears.

    GO VIKES!

    Lost’s forecast for Sunday?

    Breezy and cloudy afternoon. Temperatures will rise from 49 early this afternoon to 51 by 1:00pm then drop down to 46 late afternoon. Winds will be 10 to 20 MPH from the southwest.

    Expect Viking to win the coin toss and elect to receive instead of keeping wind at their back in the 4th quarter.

    Time to give the Handle his nickel:

    Viking (3-5) at Bear (5-3)
    LINE: MINNESOTA BY 1
    Neither side tickles our money bone at the moment but calling for the Viking right now is a far less palatable choice. Given Minnesota’s poor record here, its current dysfunctional state and Brett Favre’s propensity to pass to the opposing team, Chicago should be afforded enough to emerge victorious.
    TAKING: BEAR +1

    Cowboy (1-7) at Giant (6-2)
    LINE: NY GIANT BY 14
    Where to start with this one? It could be forever since we’ve witnessed a team put forth as weak an effort as the Cowboy have. Conversely, the Giant are amongst the NFC’s best and appear to be getting stronger. However, a new head coach and a two-touchdown cushion is enough to subject us to more of Dallas’ abuse
    TAKING: COWBOY +14
