Three Secondary Starters Out Against The Cowboys

Clearly the Vikings have problems that go far beyond the issue of which QB will start on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. The team will be without three starters in their secondary against Tony Romo according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today. Cornerback Chris Cook has been ruled out with a hip injury and strong […]

Zulgad: “The only guy who jumped the gun was Brett Favre”

Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Access Vikings set off a media blitz on Tuesday when he reported that Brett Favre was texting teammates and Vikings officials that he intended to retire once and for all. The day was crazy, and before I was eating lunch that day, many of the pundits were reporting […]


[For more previews of this nature, click on the “2010 Offseason Tracker” tab at the top of this screen.] 2009 Season The Vikings safety play was regarded as atrocious for much of the 2009 season.  While it ended up being Adrian Peterson, Brett Favre, Bernard Berrian, and Percy Harvin that “gave away” the Championship game, […]

Half And Half

The Star Tribune just released a few interesting nuggets as to Sunday’s game. First, Jamarca Sanford will be used in the same way he was used against the Giants.  He will split snaps with current starter Tyrell Johnson.  This is somewhat of an unusual move for a playoff team, as typically defensive players don’t just […]

Sanford Could End Up Being The Steal Of 2009

Vikings seventh round flier of 2009 is backup safety Jamarca Sanford.  The word “backup” may be removed from his title fairly soon if he keeps saying all the right things off the field and producing a defensive intensity on the field. Sanford played about 20 snaps with the starting defense in the Vikings regular season […]

Safety Tyrell Johnson started on Sunday against the Giants, and like most Vikings defenders he played pretty well.  Johnson only played for the first quarter, however, as he was replaced by rookie seventh round pick Jamarca Sanford.  Sanford has been a dark horse to crack the starting roster by replacing Johnson.  Johnson has struggled in […]

Rookie Doesn’t Secure Starting Role

On Sunday, all of the Vikings faithful were keeping one eye on Jasper Brinkley at all times to see how he would do in the starting lineup. Even with one eye on E.J. Henderson’s replacement, it was hard not to notice seventh round pick Jamarca Sanford flying around and making plays as he replaced second […]

Bouncing Back Like Champions Should

Let’s get this out of the way… grabbing crow from freezer… Putting into microwave safe dish… de-thawing in the microwave… Salt… Pepper… Gulp!  This is the best tasting crow ever! That’s right, the Vikings blew by the Bengals today, winning by a margin of 30-10.  While more detailed analysis will come later, here are some […]
