If Vikings Don’t Pay Up, Ray Edwards ‘Focusing on Boxing’

If the Vikings try to hold onto Ray Edwards with a restricted tender, Friday night could be the start of a new career according Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN. At least, that’s what the defensive end-turned-heavyweight continued to say on the eve of his professional boxing debut against former kickboxer T.J. Gibson on Friday at Grand […]

Vikings Players Have Strong Words For The League

The hot topic (I find the conversation to be quite tedious and boring) this week has been the NFL’s “crackdown” on dangerous hits.  Heavy fines and possibly suspensions have been used as a threat to try and get rid of unnecessary injuries across the league. At first, the new emphasis on these rules was met […]

What Is Up With The Defensive Line?

The Vikings defensive line is normally thought of as one of the best in the league, but so far this season they are ranked 14th against the run and are tied for 28th in the league with only six sacks.  The sack stat might be a little skewed because the Vikings are one of the […]

Weekend Discussion: Who Is The Rat?

Of all the things that happened over the last few days, the one that irks me most was some boneheaded player running their mouth to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports about Childress and Favre’s relationship, and the locker room morale.  I don’t understand why a player would do this right now.  Childress is the head […]

Ten Training Camp Predictions

They do it every morning.  Very early in the morning.  Long before my dogs sit at my bedside and whine at me to let them out.  Long before Mrs. Warwas presses “start” on our coffee maker.  Long, long before I want to wake up, the Minnesota Vikings hold training camp on my roof. Okay, actually […]

Talking Defensive Ends

I know I have been somewhat harsh when it comes to defensive end Ray Edwards on this blog, which often results in protests from multiple readers.
