T-Jack Jerseys, Get Your T-Jack Jerseys!

For the conspiracy theorists of the group, here is one for you to chew on for awhile.   PFT points out that the Vikings Fan Shop has reduced the price of a Tarvaris Jackson jersey to $39.95.  That would be the same price as many Matt Birk, Darren Sharper, and Chester Taylor jerseys whom are […]

Vikes Get Another Pick

The compensatory picks have finally been revealed, and as expected, the Vikings received a fifth round pick (#167). The pick was given because of the Vikings loss of Matt Birk to the Ravens.  The loss of Darren Sharper was cancelled out by the addition of Karl Paymah. For a complete list of the picks, you […]

Compensatory Reminder

You will all see quite a few bits of news regarding the compensatory pick(s) the Vikings will receive this week during the NFL’s Annual Owners Meeting. Most places I’ve seen have predicted that the Vikings will get two picks between the third and seventh round becuase they lost Darren Sharper and Matt Birk last year. […]

Who Is Left?

Well, the first wave of free agency has come and gone without much change to the Vikings roster. Their signing of Kickoff Specialist Rhys Lloyd and the departures of Artis Hicks and Chester Taylor hardly signify major roster overhaul.  While significant, the lack of offseason activity has left many Vikings fans more eager than ever […]

Saints Week: Passing Offense

This is not the Saints we are all used to, as their secondary, while not perfect, is a respectable group that has made plenty of plays this year. The Saints still rank 26th in stopping the pass and will have a challenge when facing the Vikings 8th ranked passing offense. In looking at the stats, […]

Gabbing With Saints Gab

After what turned into a rather not cordial trash talking segment earlier this week, I was approached by Gilberto Torres of Saints Gab to exchange some questions for our readers. I’ve noticed that for the most part, Saints fans are far more sportsman-like than those pesky Cowgirls were, and Mr. Torres is no different.  I […]

Tyrell Johnson: Poor Play Or Poor Scheme?

Tyrell Johnson has received a lot of criticism on this site this season.  In an effort to find out just how bad the starting strong safety has played, I ventured to one of my new favorite stats sites, Profootballfocus.com, to look at the numbers. This year Tyrell Johnson’s regular season breaks down like this: Snaps […]

Interesting Draft Note

I decided to take a break from updating my mock draft this week, but it hasn’t kept me from continuing my research. Upon doing said research, I came across an interesting nugget. The internet’s leading authority on the NFL’s compensatory draft goes by only AdamJT13.  He has a knack for predicting how the NFL will assign picks […]

Sharper Says a Return in 2009 is 50-50

From: Pioneer Press Veteran safety Darren Sharper said Wednesday that he had a good meeting with coach Brad Childress on Monday and that he will now “just kind of wait and see how free agency goes.” “I’d like to come back and I told a couple of guys that in my exit interview,” Sharper said. […]

Sharper Done as a Viking?

From: Pioneer Press Starting strong safety Darren Sharper is a free agent, but the Vikings appear to have his replacement lined up in Tyrell Johnson, drafted in the second round last April. Johnson was solid when he started the first seven games of the season at free safety while filling in for injured Madieu Williams.
