Favre Gives Vikings Wranglers, No Answers

He hasn’t decided if he’ll return for a second season, but Brett Favre did let his Minnesota Vikings’ teammates know one thing this week — he’s a cheap ass mofo. Players participating in offseason workouts — obviously, this wouldn’t include Favre — returned to team headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minn., to find a pair of […]

Vikings Stadium Deal Heating Up?

There’s no formal legislation, and lawmakers still need to pay for state schools and other necessities, but efforts to build a new Minnesota Vikings stadium appear to be heating up in the state Legislature. A top Democratic senator told the Star-Tribune most of the pieces of a stadium proposal were “pretty much drafted” and that […]

Favre A Grandfather, Brittany Still Hot

Brett Favre family

Minnesota Vikings’ and former Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Brett Favre is a grandfather. That’s right. His 21-year-old daughter Brittany recently gave birth to a son. Hey, they live in Mississippi – there’s nothing to do but drink and fuck. Those of you who live in Wisconsin should already know this. And those of you who […]

Another Packer Headed To Minnesota

Former Green Bay Packers defensive end Michael Montgomery passed a physical Monday and agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings after spending a day visiting with team officials, the Star-Tribune’s Judd Zulgad reports. He is the second free agent of note to join the Vikings this offseason, joining kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd. A sixth-round pick by […]

McNabb To Vikings Still Possible, But Doesn’t Seem Likely

Donovan McNabb

We first mentioned the possibility of Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Donovan McNabb becoming a member of the Minnesota Vikings back in January and now the rumor is flying around again. The Eagles have reportedly been discussing potential McNabb trade scenarios because they have a wealth of signal callers. In addition to McNabb, the Eagles have Kevin […]

A Sure Sign Brett Favre Will Play in 2010

Brett Favre

Not many of us who pay close attention to the comings and goings of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre have much doubt he’ll play in 2010, but then, you don’t want to jump to conclusions until he says so himself. Today there is word out of New York, where the New York Jets signed running […]

Bears Still Third Best In Division

Julius Peppers

I’ll be honest, I like to laugh at the Chicago Bears, whether they’re mortgaging their future to acquire Jay Cutler, pretending they have serviceable wide receivers or completely bungling their search for an offensive coordinator. Under general manager Jerry Angelo, the Bears are funny. And yes, I mean funny like a clown. So, the Bears […]

Day One Free Agency Update

We’re going to update this post throughout the day simply because there already is a lot going on and there will be a lot more in the free for all known as NFL free agency. The most recent news will be at the top. ———- Safety Antrel Rolle was the last big signing of the […]

Tractor Watch 2010 Continues

Brett Favre

In perhaps the most unshocking news of the offseason, Brett Favre told Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” he still doesn’t know if he’ll play again next season, and made it clear a decision won’t be coming anytime soon. Pressed for his thoughts on playing in 2010, Favre said “Well Jay, it’s only been a […]

Guy Who Took Out Favre Ad = Idiot

Well, it turns out our suspicions have been confirmed. Ben Nelms, the guy from Madison who paid $1719.90 for a full-page color ad in the Hattiesburg American urging Brett Favre to play one more season for the Minnesota Vikings, is probably more ignorant than even the average Vikings fans. Deadspin broke down the Favre ad […]

Leno, Favre Have A Lot In Common

Jay Leno returns to “The Tonight Show” after the Winter Olympics, and one of his first guests is a great one: Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre. His appearance is listed for March 4 on the show’s Web site. It will be one of Favre’s first public appearances since — literally — throwing away the Vikings’ […]

Another Ad For Lord Favre

Brett Favre

Maybe it’s the 49 years of ineptitude. Maybe it’s having never won the Super Bowl. Maybe it’s the inferiority complex instilled by the success of their eastern neighbor, the Green Bay Packers. Actually, who am I kidding? It’s all of these things that make Minnesota Vikings fans who they are. And so, you get shit […]

The Vikings – They Really Don’t Get It

Metrodome

The Minnesota Vikings organization is plowing ahead with its fruitless efforts at getting a new publicly-funded stadium. The team now has 10 lobbyists working at the state Capitol on its behalf as it seeks the public’s help to pay for a Metrodome replacement. Seven of them registered with the state this month alone. Team official […]

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 […]

The Ballad of Brett Favre

It’s a tale of treachery and deceit. Just kidding. A couple of yahoos from the Dirty South have composed this number about our favorite quarterback, Lord Brett Favre. I think hokey is the first word that comes to mind, but give it a whirl for yourself. Strange, but in the video and song there’s no […]

Brett Favre’s Coming Back, No He Isn’t, And Other Favre Notes

Brett Favre

If you take the time to sift through all of the mindless blather that is Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column you may eventually come across something that’s interesting to read. Actually, you’ll probably want to stab yourself in the eyes if you try to do this, so just let trained professionals like us sift […]

Take the Metrodome, Please!

Minnesota state Rep. Paul Kohls is proposing the state sell the Metrodome to the Minnesota Vikings for $1. In exchange, the Vikings would have to agree to stay in the state for 20 years or face a $5 million fine, which is a drop in the bucket for an NFL team. This comes on the […]

Kampman Could Land in the Division

Aaron Kampman

The Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Kampman is a free agent and we’ve speculated on several occasions why he’s unlikely to be back with the team for the 2010 season. Chief among those reasons is Kampman didn’t fare well converting from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker. For that reason alone, Kampman is […]

Packers Are 12/1 To Win 2011 Super Bowl

Lombardi Trophy

Since this year’s football season and Super Bowl are over, we may as well turn our attention to next season. On Monday, Vegas got in on the act by releasing their opening lines for teams to win Super Bowl XLV. The Green Bay Packers opened at 12/1, giving them the sixth best chance to win […]

They’re Not Too Excited About the Super Bowl in Minnesota

Sports Nation map

We had to have a chuckle at ESPN’s Sports Nation poll, the other day. Not because it was a predictably stupid question, but because of the results, which showed a distinct disparity between Minnesota and the rest of the nation. The question: How are excited are you for the Super Bowl? The choices: More excited […]
