Despite Win, Issues Still Exist

I tried to keep it fairly positive around here following the Vikings three point victory against the Cowboys, but there is no doubt that there are still some issues, negative in nature, that plague this team. The Vikings made some unusual moves when deciding who would be active for the game.  They had Fahu Tahi […]

A Few Surprise Inactives

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. There are more than a few surprises here, including the benching of a Jimmy Kennedy who claimed to be “pissed off” and “frustrated as hell” earlier this week for […]

WEEKEND CONVERSATION: Getting Down To 53 Is Tough

Well, I thought it would make for some fun weekend chatter in these parts if I put together my very, very, very early prediction of how the Vikings 53-man roster is going to shake out.  The only really important thing to point out is that I did not include E.J. Henderson and Cedric Griffin, as […]

News To Me

I picked up an article via Bleacher Report that was originally posted on Deep Shades of Blue’s website. The article centers around Vikings fullback Fahu Tahi and reeks of P.R. hype.  They describe Tahi as having a “thankless job” as a “devastating blocker.” Now, I like Tahi more than most readers of this blog, but […]

The First One Falls

One good thing about not having a first round pick this year is we save a little money (based on last year’s numbers it should be around 3 million, of which could be put towards new contracts for Greenway, Rice, and possibly Edwards). Also, there should be no hold-outs from camp, now only if Stanford […]

Welcome To The Big Show: Ryan D’Imperio

[EDITOR’S NOTE:  Over the last few weeks, we posted some in-depth articles that allow you to better know the newest Vikings draft class.  Click the links to read about Chris Cook, Toby Gerhart, Everson Griffen, Chris Degeare, Nate Triplett, Joe Webb, and Mickey Shuler.] In high school, Ryan D’Imperio did it all.  In the NFL, he may be asked […]

Checking In On Predictions

A favorite past time of readers of this site is to check back on predictions made and see how they held up over time. Some of you even love to pick on the editor of this site (gasp!) when he makes a bold prediction that falls flat.  For instance, I thought bringing in Brett Favre […]

Vikings Are Sticking Together

If you are one of those people that believe continuity is important, then you must be fairly pleased to see how the Vikings offseason has played out. The Vikings have retained each of their free agents except for three.  Those three are Artis Hicks, Karl Paymah, and Chester Taylor… all second stringers. They also signed […]

OFFSEASON PREVIEW: Full Backs

Also available are the quarterback and running back versions of “offseason preview.” The Vikings made the decision two years ago to allow dominating full back Tony Richardson leave in free agency.  Richardson went to the Jets where he paved the way for a fairly dominant running attack. The Vikings replaced Richardson with Thomas Tapeh, whom […]

Childress Takes The Blame… Kind Of

Brad Childress held his end of the year press conference on Tuesday.  Naturally, he was grilled about the 12-man penalty that partially doomed the Vikings chances at winning the NFC Championship.  We all knew he would get questions about it, but after he seemed to throw Fahu Tahi under the bus in regards to the […]
