    Re:8 Vikings make pro bowl

    ...Feelin' a little prophetic here...

    Kinda neat that I cited Andrew Brandt, National Football Post, the $$$$ aspect...

    Several hours later Brandt posts exactly that of which I speak.

    http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Wednesday-whys-All-about-Pro-Bowl-bonuses.html

    A small portion of the article linked-


    ...The other issue with the Pro Bowl selection involves future or even existing contracts. Once a player makes a Pro Bowl, the agent is now armed with a badge of honor that will have significant bargaining muscle behind it. An agent can now compare his player to other players with Pro Bowl on their resumes, and these are usually players who have been rewarded by previously using the same flawed logic.

    That was more than a little uncanny, there... :P

    Not at all.

    You & everyone else keep forgetting that I didn't want Favre to do bad, I simply predicted he would. I am not a hater as you make me out to be, I was a doubter.

    Happier than shit to eat crow, as I said I would be,

    Still, with that said, I predict us to be 1 & done in the playoffs if we play like we did in the 1st half of the Bears game.

    Congrats to the 8 Pro Bowlers.

    Especially pleased to see Sidney Rice there, hopefully he will use this experience and go on to even better things for us.

    I wonder what fans of other teams think when they read Vikings online boards and find that Vikings fans think McKinnie is not worthy of the Pro Bowl.

    Many Vikings fans were unwilling to vote for Tahi as well.

    Many Vikes fans? I think all except Marrdro refuse to vote for tahi, except those that ONLY vote for Vikings.

    Heh heh, I actually had keyed "most Vikings fans", but I decided to use "many" instead, because I did not want to be presumptuous. Some people did give Tahi many early votes, after all. I wonder if Tahi's mouse clicking finger being so sore caused him to drop some hard Favre passes.
