Vikings May Stay In Minnesoata After All

Vikings stadium

The Minnesota State Legislature will reportedly introduce a stadium bill next week that could lead to the Minnesota Vikings getting a new home and guaranteeing the team won’t abandon the worst fans in professional sports. The bill will include two options for funding the stadium. The first involves building a new Vikings’ stadium on the […]

Total Packers 2-Minute Drill

The guys over at Lexy were kind enough to let my dumb ass be the guest on their latest 2-Minute Drill, which of course focuses on the finest team in all of professional sports – the Green Bay Packers. We talked about the draft, Aaron Rodgers, the Packers’ defense, Lord Favre and the rest of […]

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, […]

Stadium-Hungry Vikings Whore Out Jared Allen

The Minnesota Vikings are getting aggressive in their crusade for a new stadium. Team owner Zygi Wilf met privately Thursday with state lawmakers at St. Paul’s posh University Club to discuss possible stadium bills, while Jared Allen spent that evening being, well, Jared Allen. The defensive end/attention whore/douche bag has become something of a poster […]

Don’t Mess With Jared Allen’s Girlfriend, Just Wear His Jersey When Committing Crimes

You know how much we love Minnesota Vikings’ defensive end and dumbass redneck Jared Allen, so we really couldn’t resist bringing you the latest news from the Sax Machine. First, comes this video in which you’ll see Allen utter these words: “I’ll break your fucking neck homeboy … and then I’ll write a check to […]

Detroit Schedule Leaks, Packers To Face Bears In Finale

Jay Cutler

Our favorite wonky blogger at ESPN, Kevin Siefert, posted the leaked 2010 schedule for the Detroit Lions. Why is this interesting for Green Bay Packers fans? Well, we at least know three game dates for the Packers’ schedule. Sunday, Oct. 3 — LIONS at Green Bay Sunday, Dec. 12 — LIONS at Detroit Sunday, Jan. […]

Week 17 Will Feature Only Divisional Games

Roger Goodell

The full NFL schedule will be released later today, but ESPN has already reported one significant development – week 17 will feature only divisional games. As we’ve discussed before, the move will hopefully eliminate some meaningless late-season contests where teams play their B team, something which takes away from both the integrity of the playoffs […]

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 […]
