    Darn- Lost Thigpen

    http://www.startribune.com/blogs/vikings/

    Meanwhile, the Vikings were unable to sneak QB Tyler Thigpen through waivers and onto the practice squad. The Kansas City Chiefs were awarded him this morning, according to agent Joel Turner

    I knew we should of release BB instead of Thigpen
    :'(

    Thiggy, BTW, we need you to regurgitate what you remember of the Vikings playbook before the 3 week of the season.

    That bites and I think Chilly probably hates it every bit as much as the fans.
    They really had little choice though.
    Holcomb JUST came on.
    You can't go into the season with Tarvaris, Holcomb, and Thigpen because that gives you essentially one game ready QB.
    The fact they got Holcomb so late means he won't be ready to start until the 5th week at the earliest.
    If Tarvaris goes down in between you've essentially put yourself in a huge cluster f#@$ without BB and jeopardize your whole season.
    In spite of that, I would have taken the risk and cut BB, because I don't think he would have signed on elsewhere.
    BB may not be too eager to come running back for the Vikes in a pinch if something did happen, but that's life in the cutthroat NFL.
    Thigpen will still be on the bubble in KC...if they have to make an addition later he may find himself cut.
    Hopefully, if that happens we can say nice knowing ya, BB.

    If he ends up on their practice squad we could still sign him if I'm remembering correctly. I doubt we would. But I would have let BB go as well. Holcumb looks ready to play today if needed. Even with limited plays Holcumb is far better than BB.
