OFFSEASON PREVIEW: Safety

[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 Plays Well But It Doesn’t Matter

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 […]

Welcome to our first installment (and possibly last) of my quote of the week segment. The first quote was told to Chip Scoggins of the Star Tribune, and he posted it on his Twitter Account. When Scoggins asked Vikings safety Tyrell Johnson how he thought he’s been playing this year, Johnson replied with: I’ve played […]

Sudden Question Marks In The Starting Lineup

It is amazing what a loss can do to the morale of a fan base.  Childress mentioned in his presser on Monday that the mood in the locker room was more that of a 3-11 team rather than an 11-3 team.  Judging from how I feel, and from reading comments on this site and others, […]
