    Well deserved Adrian! You are a beast. IMO, All-Day is the best football player in the league.

    Just think – had Viking taken a run at Hasselbeck we could have been 4 and 1 playing Chicago this weekend.

      lost, ya got me thinkin, why we didn’t get him, so i looked it up:

      7/29/2011: Signed a three-year, $20 million contract. The deal included a $6 million signing bonus. Another $1 million is available through incentives. 2011: $3 million, 2012-2013: $5.5 million, 2014: Free Agent

      it was prolly a doable deal, but what we were thinkin with the cap at the time, i don’t know. we still had to do draftees, AD and chad

      they might’ve just wanted a real short term fix, and cheap. guess ya get what ya pay for

        McNabb wasn’t impressed with Viking contract offer. Had forgotten how much more of a commitment Titan were handing out to Hasselbeck.

        Recall the Viking braintrust were seriously considering Tyler Thigpen (Bill) as alternative. Uggh! Worst pre-season QB performance since Tim Couch.

    Good article,

    “McNabb has more wins (98) than 15 of the 23 modern-era quarterbacks in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    The …. likelihood is that Frazier will bench McNabb, who turns 35 next month, once the Viking are officially eliminated from playoff contention so the team can get Ponder some work before next season. A source close to McNabb said the 13-year veteran would probably consider retirement at that point rather than be a backup or join a fourth team in four years.”

    Chicago = 99
    Carolina = 100 ?
    Bye Week

    Carimi, Spencer, and Bennett out on Bear O-line.

    Now – Julius Peppers with an MCL strain.
    Plus – Bear Safety issues.

    Joe Webb should be the guy this year, period. When else will we try him?
    Why do people count him out? It’s BS. Ponder may or may not be effective. He’s going to get a shot, maybe next year. Webb needs to be the one we check out this year. The Lions and Packers are already running away with the NFC. McNabb is a Mcbust. A hail mary of an idea that he could lead the offense but it wobbled short.
