Moss free - could it be...? This Texas Viking fan just returned from Mn vacation and heard alot of excited talk about the Vikings prospects for the coming year. Main thought, without Moss maybe the offense can acquire a team focus and defense will be the key to any success - coaches have to get new players ready in a hurry and old/new players into the scheme. I do hope that the Viking's are not serious about Eddie George, they need help at RB but George has no answers.

Go VIKES !

Here's the full Thursday Night schedule, 14 of 16 are Divvy games. Should be a better draw.

I hate to see him go, I think he has a couple of good years left, his presence demanded attention. But I'm also sure the terms were not to anyone's liking...

Sad to see Jared Allen leaving, but he had kind of become a one-dimensional pass rusher only guy at this point.

He should be able to help a contender next year though.

Sounds like Zimmer has been interviewed twice. I hope they are waiting to also talk to the coaches who are still coaching in Seattle and Denver.

Now that the Leslie Frazier era is over and hopefully the Christian Ponder one too, let's hope Spielman & the Wilf's realize they need to open the purse strings to get a top notch head coach and quality QB.

"We did X-rays, and it came back pretty clear," said Peterson, who finished with 13 yards on seven carries. "The next step is to get an MRI done (Monday) and find out more."

Ole and Sven die in a snowmobiling accident, drunker than skunks, And go to Hell.
The Devil observes that they are really enjoying themselves. He says to them,
'Doesn't the heat and smoke bother you?' Ole replies, 'Vell, ya know, ve're from
nordern Minnesooota, da land of snow an ice, an ve're yust happy fer a chance ta
varm up a little bit, ya know.'

The devil decides that these two aren't miserable enough and turns up the heat even more.
When he returns to the room of the two from Minnesota , the devil finds them in light
jackets and hats, grilling Walleye and drinking beer. The devil is astonished and
exclaims, 'Everyone down here is in misery, and you two seem to be enjoying yourselves?'
Sven replies, 'Vell, ya know, ve don't git too much varm veather up dere at da Falls,
so ve've yust got ta haff a fish fry vhen da veather's dis nice.'

The devil is absolutely furious. He can hardly see straight. Finally he comes up with
the answer. The two guys love the heat because they have been cold all their lives.
The devil decides to turn all the heat off in Hell. The next morning, the temperature
is 60 below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere, and people are shivering so bad that
they are unable to wail, moan or gnash their teeth. The devil smiles and heads for the
room with Ole and Sven. He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, bomber hats,
and mittens. They are jumping up and down, cheering, yelling and screaming like mad men.

The devil is dumbfounded, 'I don't understand, when I turn up the heat you're happy.
Now its freezing cold and you're still happy. What is wrong with you two?'

They both look at the devil in surprise and say, 'Vell, don't ya know, if hell iss froze over, dat must mean da Vikings von da Super Bowl.'

I was kind of expecting Allen to be traded, but not for a low draft pick, might as well keep him and let him play out the string this year.

Add a pass rushing DE to the long list of needs for this team.

Glad to see Jared Allen didn't get traded. He reminds me of John Randle. However, we should have traded him if we don't plan to bring a quality QB in next year.

The Vikes are a train wreck except for a couple of bright spots in Pederson and Allen. I am all for trying to get Bridgewater/Gruden in our camp and rebuild for when the new stadium will open. I know it is a big if but I can dream can't I?

Comparisons to Spurge on Wynn = not good.

A must lose game puts is in 3rd foe the #1 pick. Just need the Bugs and Jags to falter and win a couple.

The sack by Jared Allen while he was being held was an all timer.

Very tragic news. My heart goes out to Adrian and the mother.

For once LeBron James spoke (tweeted)the truth:

"I'm absolutely angry, because it's an innocent kid that's taken away by someone's stupidity," James added. "I don't know the guy who did it. But there's nothing that a two-year-old kid can say, can do, can harm to any grown-up that would make them do that. It's a lot of hurt. It's a lot of anger. It's messed up."

Peterson's son dies from aggravated assault.

Thoughts and prayers go out to AP and his family. The attacker must never taste freedom ever again! One of the most heinous acts imaginable!

As of now, AP plans to play on Sunday, but it's very understandable if he doesn't.
