    Tues Morn Rumor Mill

    Weinke an option for Vikings
    November 1
    St. Paul Pioneer Press (scroll down) (registration required): "With Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper's status for next season uncertain because of upcoming knee reconstruction, Carolina Panthers backup Chris Weinke, who is from St. Paul and can become an unrestricted free agent at season's end, would seem a worthwhile consideration... Don't think the Detroit Lions, who play the Vikings on Sunday at the Metrodome, aren't already interested in Matt Birk if the Vikings try to restructure the Pro Bowl center's $3.94 million 2006 contract and he becomes a free agent."

    * The Vikings have a short list of candidates to look at for competition for Hill at No. 2. The list includes Doug Johnson, Jeff George, Jesse Palmer and Jonathan Quinn.
    * Fred Smoot had an MRI done Monday that showed a bruised right shoulder -- and a partially torn ego.

    Please tell me that we're not so desparate as to be looking at Jonathan Quinn. That guy has no ability to play the QB position in the NFL.

    and I have a feeling that Smoots torn ego will be the fastest healing injury that they've ever had an MRI detect.

    Whats the point of signing a competant back-up like Brad if we are just shopping for one.

    Point..we are not looking for a QB. Just a lame rumor by the media.

    We are shopping for another quarterback because we have only 2 now. I think we need three to be safe!

    Yes, I know. But people are talking like we are shopping for a new starter.

    Lets just get Couch!

    We're looking for a starter for next year (since Dante is questionable for next season) and a backup for this year (competition for Hill).
    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    As much as it hurts to lose Daunte and our season probably is over, I am not giving up. I have complete faith in Brad, probably because I am crazy, but because I remember the good times Brad had here in 1996, 1997, and the opening game in 1998. I for one am busting out the old Brad jersey I have.

    The Vikes are in a tough position right now though, since they don't know how Pepp is gonna be after. They should go out and get a guy like Couch to back up for the rest of this season. Then by draft day they should know if they think they need to get a QB or not. I hope they don't have to but, nothing is guaranteed right now....

    Lets go BRAD.....PEPP GET WELL SOON!!

    I agree that the vikings are in a very tough position right now. I pray that Duante returns next year in great health but what does the team do as an insurance policy if things go south with the injury??
