Update: Everyone In Minnesota Is Delusional

Visanthe Shiancoe

I’m sure you remember Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, who had to pass the U.S. Senate resolution honoring the Green Bay Packers, and then had the gall to say the Minnesota Vikings will win it in 2012.

I mean, if there was ever a Senator with her head up her ass…

Well, apparently such delusions extend to Minnesota Vikings players, as well.

We Hardly Knew Ye, TJack

Tarvaris Jackson

Over in Minnesota, things continue to get worse for the Vikings, which normally would be great. That’s not the case, at the moment, however. In addition to the giant hole in the roof of their shitty stadium and concerns surrounding the availability of TCF Bank Stadium, where the Vikings are trying to host their Monday […]

My Bet: Brett Favre Hangs It Up Before The Season Ends

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre said he wanted to go home and “re-evaluate” after losing to the Green Bay Packers 31-3, on Sunday. What re-evaluate means exactly, Favre didn’t say. Of course, there’s speculation Favre may hang it up before the season ends and with good reason. The Vikings are all but mathematically eliminated from […]

Brad Jones Fractured Brett Favre’s Ankle

Green Bay Packers linebacker Brad Jones didn’t make a lot of plays in Sunday’s win against the Minnesota Vikings, but he did make one big one. Jones hit Vikings quarterback Brett Favre from behind on the play that would turn into Favre’s first interception on a three-interception night. On the play, Favre’s foot got caught […]

This Brett Favre Bullshit Is Far From Over

We should have known better and we probably did, but both Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Jay Glazer of Fox Sports are typically pretty reliable guys. So, when they said Brett Favre told people within the Minnesota Vikings organization he was retiring, we leaned towards believing them. Of course, in the back […]

Brett Favre To Retire

Somehow I find this hard to believe, but the Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting that Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has started to inform people within the organization he’s going to retire. Jay Glazer is reporting that Favre is citing the wear and tear on his body as the reason he’s hanging it up and has […]

More Details Emerge On The Brett Favre Divorce

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre is a megalomaniacal prima donna, this we know. We all knew he wanted to stick it to the Green Bay Packers when they decided to move on, even though he said he didn’t. Despite his previous denial that his move to Minnesota wasn’t about revenge, Favre now admits he wanted […]

Vikings Shiancoe: Nothing Will Change On Offense Without Favre

Minnesota Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe thinks the team’s offense will be the same whether it’s Brett Favre or Tarvaris Jackson behind center. That’s right, the wunderkind Tarvaris Jackson. I about shit myself, before laughing hysterically, when I read that statement. OK, so maybe Shiancoe didn’t say exactly that, but he did say this. “Nothing […]

Favre Still Hurting, But Vikings Think He’ll Play Two More Years

Will he or won’t he? It has pretty much been a foregone conclusion around these parts that Lord Brett Favre would return for the 2010 season to play quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. But not so fast, apparently. Steve Mariucci, Favre’s quarterbacks coach during his early years with the Green Bay Packers and close friend, […]

Vikings’ Leber: Favre Will Be Back

Brett Favre

It’s that time of year again. The time of year when the draft is still two months away and free agency hasn’t started yet. So, we might as well talk about Lord Brett Favre and whether he’ll come back to play for the Minnesota Vikings next season. For one, Vikings’ linebacker Ben Leber says he […]

Packers Looking For Backup Quarterback Help

Luke McCown

This should come as no surprise, particularly in the wake of Brian Brohm’s abysmal preseason performance (his second terrible preseason in a row), but the Green Bay Packers are seriously looking to acquire a backup quarterback. Steve Wyche of NFL.com reports that the Packers could be looking to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, something we suggested […]

Favre a Dividing Force in Minnesota?

Brett Favre

Well, you had to know this would happen. It appears that one Brett Favre is creating “issues” or perhaps a “schism” in the Minnesota Vikings locker room, something that can only be good for the Green Bay Packers and the rest of the NFC North. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that several Vikings favor the team’s […]

The View to the West: A Look at the Minnesota Vikings

From Viking Underground

Since there has been minimal Green Bay Packers news for us to talk about or rumors to speculate about lately, we thought we’d take a look at our hated rivals to the west, the Minnesota Vikings, aka the Queens, and the idiotic moves they’ve been making this offseason. Last week the Queens lost former Packers […]

Sage Rosenfels – Get to Know Him

Why should you care about the second-string quarterback for the Houston Texans? Because reports suggest that Sage Rosenfels is about to be become a Minnesota Viking, and he’s a big upgrade over the two-headed monster known as Tarvaris Jackson/Gus Frerotte. The deal is rumored to be for a fourth-round draft choice, and would considerably shore […]
