Clearing Something Up

I saw some discussion going on about when exactly Sidney Rice will be available to the Vikings, especially after Vikings V.P. Rick Speilman made a confusing comment during the broadcast of their final preseason game. Rice was placed on the PUP list by the Vikings and is reported to be “ineligible to play in the first […]

Jackson Could Still Be The Answer

With Sidney Rice on the PUP list, the Vikings do not have a #1 receiver.  Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, and Greg Camarillo are all solid receivers, but none appear to be number one material, and all of them have been unreliable to suit up on Sunday’s due to health and injury.

Vikes Get Down To 75

As we mentioned yesterday, the Vikings needed to get down to 75 players by today, and linebacker J Leman was the first to be waived. Today they waived tackle Bill Noethlich and wide receiver Marko Mitchell. They also placed Sidney Rice on the inactive/PUP list.  This means Rice cannot play for the first six weeks […]

Sidney Rice Explains Himself

The following is taken directly from Sidney Rice’s official blog: I’m in physical therapy getting my hip iced up right now. I can tell you that physical therapy is not fun. I injured my hip during the Saints game and it was pretty bad afterwards. I got an MRI right after the game and the […]

Reaction To Sapp Trade

The Vikings have reportedly traded cornerback Benny Sapp to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for veteran receiver Greg Camarillo. This trade comes in the wake of Sidney Rice’s hip surgery that will surely keep him out of action for at least eight weeks.  So let us break down what has happened here. Let’s start with […]

Vikings Swing A Trade

The Vikings have reportedly begun to fill the void left by Sidney Rice by swinging a trade with the Miami Dolphins. They have traded for receiver Greg Camarillo.  Compensation is not yet known, but rumor has it that cornerback Benny Sapp is involved. Camarillo has played one year with the Chargers and three with the […]

Moats Out, Walker In

The Vikings have announced that they waived running back Ryan Moats to create room to sign wide receiver Javon Walker. The move comes one day after Sidney Rice had surgery on his hip (it is now confirmed, the surgery happened) and is expected to miss a lengthy portion of the season. With Percy Harvin having […]

Report: Rice Could Miss Half The Season

Some preseasons give you the warm and fuzzies about your team’s prospects. For Vikings fans, this hasn’t been one of them. The latest in what seems to be an endless supply of obstacles for the Vikings to hurdle is a report that Sidney Rice “appears likely” to have belated surgery performed on his hip. This […]

‘The Sick One’ Is Back

After the death of his grandmother and another battle with migraines kept him out of most of training camp and the first preseason game, Percy Harvin has rejoined the Vikings. This is good news for anyone that has followed the Vikings training camp woes, particularly on offense. Getting Sidney Rice and Brett Favre to practice […]

Weekend Discussion: Roll Call

First, I want to say that there will be no live chat for Saturday’s game.  The decision wasn’t easy, but it is a preseason game, after all, and there are only so many days to go fishing before the regular season takes priority over everything short of the birth of my child. Okay, now onto […]
