Center Position Still Up For Grabs

“I don’t know.  I have no idea. I wish I had answers for you.” That is what last week’s starting center Ryan Cook said when asked why he was pulled out of the game at halftime and replaced by second year undrafted player, Jon Cooper.  Cook says he has yet to receive an explanation from […]

Ryan Cook Heads Back To Bench

I, along with some of you, was really hoping that Ryan Cook could prove to be the Vikings answer at the center position.  After all, it was five years ago that Cook was drafted as a center, and Monday was his first start at the position. However, it appears that even with regular starter John […]

OPINION: Vikes Should Roll With Jackson

Look, I’ll be upfront in saying (and most of you know this by now) I am not, and never have been, Brett Favre’s biggest fan.  So, if you are someone that thinks Brett Favre is incapable of throwing a bad pass, and that his receivers simply need to do a better job of always being […]

Cook Likely To Start At Center

Tonight Brett Favre will be on the same starting roster as Randy Moss for the first time ever. According to Judd Zulgad, and in line with what we discussed last week, Brett Favre will be taking snaps from Ryan Cook in his first start at the center position in place of an injured John Sullivan. […]

Ryan Cook Likely To Start

On Saturday, Brad Childress said that John Sullivan continued to rehab his calf injury and is making progress.  Childress also said that Sullivan would likely make the trip to New York with the team, but it sounds doubtful that he’ll be able to play. “He’s pushing through some stuff here,” Childress said. “I think we’re […]

Will Cook Be Competition For Sullivan?

I am not a big fan of starting center John Sullivan’s level of play, but I have to admit I was wishing for him to re-enter the lineup after injuring his leg early in Sunday’s game.  I was wishing for his return, because the very next play featured his replacement, Ryan Cook, getting beat bad […]

Three Vikings Sign Tenders

Three of the Vikings restricted free agents have signed their tenders. Defensive tackle Fred Evans, offensive lineman Ryan Cook, and safety Eric Frampton have decided to sign their tenders. Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, defensive end Ray Edwards, and fullback Fahu Tahi have not yet signed their tenders. The deadline for other teams to signs RFAs to […]

Gotta Love The Internet

One bad/great thing about the internet is that any monkey with a keyboard and mouse can have a blog (I get paid in bananas) and create rumors about their favorite football team. Here are a few that I’ve come across that may or may not have any merit to get you through this boring stretch: […]

And Now Frampton, Too

Moments after it was announced that Ryan Cook ended up being tendered, we learned that safety Eric Frampton was also tendered. Frampton recieved the original round tender meaning the Vikings would recieve a fifth round pick as compensation if another team were to sign him. Karl Paymah is the Vikings only RFA to not recieve […]

Keeping Cook In The Kitchen

The Vikings have extended an original round tender to offensive lineman Ryan Cook. The one year tender will be worth $1.176 million. Cook is in the same boat as Tarvaris Jackson, meaning that thanks to Fred Evans being tendered at the second round level despite being drafted in a later round, Jackson and Cook are […]
