WEDNESDAY: 3 Sit, 7 limited

While the Vikings have not quite had to transfer their injury report to one of those Monty Python style scrolls like the Packers have had to do to ensure they have enough space to list everybody, but it seems like every week features a number of surprising additions. This week is no different. On Wednesday, […]

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 […]

So who is Lito Sheppard? Sheppard was the 26th […]

Lito Is A Done Deal

The folks over at PFT have a source on the inside of Winter Park or the Lito Sheppard camp. Said source says that Sheppard signed with the Vikings today. The cornerback reportedly landed a one year contract worth about $2 million. More to come soon.
