Former Vikings Back Albert Young Takes a Job at Colorado

Adam Caplan of reports that former Viking running back Albert Young has accepted an assistant coaching job with the University of Colorado. Though no official announcement was made, this would seem to indicate the end of Young’s NFL career. An undrafted free agent out of Iowa in 2008, Young appeared in 10 games for […]

Inactives Are In

The Vikings inactives are:  Joe Webb (3rd QB), Hank Baskett, Lito Sheppard, Albert Young, Husain Abdullah, Erin Henderson, Chris DeGeare, and Fred Evans. Tyrell Johnson will get the start at strong safety, John Sullivan will start at center, and rookie Everson Griffen will make his NFL debut. I’m a little surprised that Erin Henderson isn’t active, […]

The Vikings inactives are Hank Baskett, Tyrell Johnson, Chris Cook, Chris DeGearge (ankle), Jimmy Kennedy, Everson Griffen, and Fahu Tahi.   Joe Webb is the third quarterback.

A conversation with Albert Young

Albert Young, RB #34 for our beloved Minnesota Vikings was kind enough to take some time and speak with me this morning. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we have not only the most talented team in the NFL, but a team where the players are truly great to the fans. Here […]

Speculative Trades

What is more fun than putting some unfounded, unreasonable, and unlikely speculation out there on the internet? Nothing. So, today I offer up a healthy serving of trades that I think the Vikings could benefit from.  I blame their recent trade for Greg Camirillo for giving me the idea to do this.  Again, these are […]

It’s “Official”: Reynaud Is A Running Back

I still don’t put much stock in the recent reports of the Vikings moving Darius Reynaud to running back.  I recently stated that I think it is little more than pre-Draft smoke trying to mask the Vikings intentions to draft a running back this year, and perhaps earlier than most would expect. However, according to […]

Reynaud The Runner

Multiple reports are surfacing that Darius Reynaud mentioned in a radio interview that the Vikings may move him to running back, which is an area of potential need since Chester Taylor departed during free agency. By all appearances, this is not an April Fool’s joke, so we’ll run with it. Reynaud has some experience at […]

More Evidence That Favre Will Return… Or Is It

It only took me a few days after the NFC Championship game to make my Brett Favre prediction. He is coming back. That may or may not hold true, but a recent report certainly goes a long ways towards solidifying that notion. Newsday’s Bob Glauber reports that the Vikings used Brett Favre as a recruitment […]
