Clusterfuck Update 7/27: Free Agent Deals And Kolb To Cardinals

Kevin Kolb

Although teams can’t begin signing free agents until Friday, this is the second day they could negotiate with them. Several clubs took advantage and reached agreements with players. The Green Bay Packers jumped into the fray by reaching an agreement with Mason Crosby. Here are today’s developments that could impact the Packers’ quest to repeat […]

Clusterfuck Update 7/26: Free Agent Deals And McNabb To Vikings

Donovan McNabb

Teams can’t officially sign free agents until Friday, but that didn’t stop several players from agreeing to contracts. That, plus the Minnesota Vikings pursuit of Donovan McNabb and Nnamdi Asomugha’s first suitor.

Soon, Vikings QB Joe Webb Will Throw Interceptions Like No Other

Joe Webb

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joe Webb is working out with Brett Favre, which means two things — Favre is probably actually retired and Webb will soon be able to throw interceptions with the all-time greats.

Brandt Opens Door On Favre Return

Brett Favre

Not that anyone needs to help out in this department because it always has a life of its own, but NFL.com’s Gil Brandt has opened the door on the possible return of one Brett Favre… again. Brandt says Favre might be getting the itch again, but this year things are a little different.

A Medical Investigation Of Packers Fans’ Thin Skin

Packers fans

MADISON – In what anthropologists and health care professionals are calling an unprecedented and historical breakthrough in medical science, a University of Wisconsin study reported in this week’s Journal of the American Medical Association claims that Green Bay Packer fans have “genetically cultivated –- over a long period of time –- the most significantly diaphanous epidermis […]

Just When You Thought Vikings Fans Couldn’t Get Any Dumber…

Seriously, this is the dumbest thing you’ll see all day… wait, no, all week. Probably all month for that matter. The Minnesota Vikings are trying to get a new stadium. For the most part, no one cares including the fans.

Adrian Peterson Not Fired Up About Vikings’ Quarterbacks

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was asked several questions about the team’s quarterback situation and struggled to say anything positive about rookie Christian Ponder or default incumbent Joe Webb. Peterson suggests he can’t see Ponder starting when the season opens.

Adrian Peterson Football Camp, Now With Less Adrian Peterson!

Adrian Peterson

We’d expect nothing less from a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Running back Adrian Peterson is ditching his own football camp, which begins tomorrow, claiming he has to film a show for the NFL Network. We’d probably ignore this if the camp wasn’t called the Old Spice Adrian Peterson Football Camp and the NFL Network didn’t say Peterson isn’t filming his spot until July.

Vikings Probably Aren’t Going Anywhere

Metrodome

There’s been a lot of talk about the Minnesota Vikings moving, specifically to Los Angeles, if the team doesn’t get a new stadium, but that is beginning to look more and more unlikely. The deal the Vikings are trying to craft with the state for a new stadium in suburban Arden Hills is far from done, but it does appear a little closer.

Vikings Chirping For Plaxico Burress

Plaxico Burress

Two of the Minnesota Vikings main offensive weapons, running back Adrian Peterson and receiver Percy Harvin, are lobbying for the team to sign receiver Plaxico Burress, who was released from prison earlier this month. Burress hasn’t played football since 2008 after pleading guilty to gun charges and will be looking for a new home to resume his career when the lockout ends.

Mason Crosby vs. Ryan Longwell

Ryan Longwell

Although the Green Bay Packers have given every indication they plan to re-sign kicker Mason Crosby, who will be a free agent when the lockout ends, things don’t always go according to plan. It’s conceivable, although probably not likely, another team will do something to pry Crosby away from the Packers. In that scenario, the team may be forced to turn to a familiar face — former kicker Ryan Longwell.

ESPN Determines What We Already Knew: Packers Best Sports Franchise

Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews

ESPN The Magazine’s annual Best In Sports issue, which will hit the newsstands on Friday, has determined what we long knew to be true — the Green Bay Packers are the best franchise in sports. That’s right, not the NFL, but all of sports. How did they arrive at the obvious, you ask? The rankings […]

20 Questions With Sam Farmer

Sam Farmer

We’re dropping some real football knowledge this morning, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ NFL writer, Sam Farmer. Farmer is seriously keyed in and he doesn’t make you want to stab yourself in the eyes when you read his work, like, say, a certain Sports Illustrated writer. In addition to being all over the lockout, […]

John Randle Still Hates Brett Favre

John Randle

Former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle John Randle, who had a very public rivalry with quarterback Brett Favre when he was with the Green Bay Packers, still doesn’t think much of Favre. In fact, he recently compared Favre to a reality television show. “I’m done following him,” said Randle, who sacked Favre 13.5 times. “That went […]

Ndamukong Suh Probably Should Play For Vikings

Suh

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh probably should play for the Minnesota Vikings. Why? He’s just that stupid. Last week, Suh repeated a proclamation he made in March that everyone with good sense immediately dismissed and then forgot about — the Detroit Lions can go 16-0 this year.

Jared Allen: (Not Surprisingly) Still A Douche

Jared Allen

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen is just so awesome! He’s awesome and totally cool in a way anyone who isn’t a dumb redneck just wouldn’t understand! In other words, he’s (still) a douchebag. And Minnesota Vikings fans still love him. You know, peanut butter and jelly.

Best Quarterbacks In NFL History: Green Bay Packers

Brett Favre

Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]

Fox Sports Ranks Packers No. 1 NFL Organization

Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson

Fox Sports’ Adam Schein compiled his third annual NFL organization rankings and not surprisingly, the Green Bay Packers came out on top, dethroning two-time winner, the New England Patriots. What does this mean? Probably not much, other than the Packers rate highly in several subjective categories. While the categories used to determine the rankings — […]

Vikings’ Four Worst Moments Since 1987

Brett Favre

We love tales of Minnesota Vikings woe almost as much as we love the Green Bay Packers, so it’s literally impossible for us not to tell you about Pro Football Talk’s list of the team’s four worst moments since 1987, which is the last time there was a lockout. PFT previously looked at the Packers’ four worst moments. The Vikings’ list of failure and ineptitude is much longer, though.
