    Vikings | Hicks works with first team Saturday
    Mon, 25 Aug 2008 14:16:35 -0700

    Don Seeholzer, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings OG Artis Hicks received work with the first team at left tackle Saturday, Aug. 23, in case OT Bryant McKinnie is suspended for his involvement in a fight outside a Miami nightclub in February.

    I thought this was a given...when is Goodell going to make his decision?

    Vikings | Booty could be the favorite for No. 3 job
    Mon, 25 Aug 2008 14:51:29 -0700

    Don Seeholzer, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings QB John David Booty, a fifth-round draft choice in April, played the final 18 minutes Saturday, Aug. 23, while QB Brooks Bollinger did not see the field.
    I was sitting here wondering to myself when something came to light.

    I wonder, did BB get alot of time at the Ravens game only as a tease?
    Maybe, just maybe that situation is desparate enough for them to want him?

    I know I am reaching, however.......Stranger things (T-will to Jax) has happened.

    ;D
    It's possible, but there is no guarantee he will show well and could actually diminish his value.
    It doesn't help us prepare for the season much as well if we know he is going to be cut.


    I doubt he would bring us much in terms of a draft pick in a trade and doesn't seem likely that you would go through this kind of effort just to get a very late round pick next year.


    However, I could see the possibility of a trade involving a current Ravens player that is conditional on seeing Brooks getting some reps.
    I hope they are not operating this way, but I guess its not out of the question.
    I would prefer to believe that he got the reps because he was still being considered for a roster spot.

    I hear ya my friend, but it isn't like it hasn't been done before.

    Heck, last year we show cased Memo a bit with little success but it does happen.

    Even a late day pick for him would be good.
    Lets not forget what ole Ricky boy does with extra picks.

    As always, a solid post my friend.

    I have less of an issue in seeing anyone other than the QB being possibly showcased.
    Especially since I think we still have a lot of questions at this postion.
    If we were the Colts or Patriots shopping a 3rd stringer, makes a lot more sense to me.

    I wouldn't be all that surprised if it did happen, its hard to get surprised by almost anything in the NFL, however, I just don't know that I agree with the approach if that is indeed what happened.
    That's just me though, and not much of an argument against the idea.

    PP.O | Marrdro admist to having a slight case of FAA
    Wed, 20 Aug 2008 16:48:42 -0700

    Vesty, of the PP.O, reports Minnesota Vikings fan, Marrdro, admits that he had a case of FAA.
    He did not, however, accept treatment and he is still vulnerable to the disease.
    The CDC has confirmed that the disease is not contagious.
    He needs to focus on the team a bit more instead of sniffing OTIS's crotch.

    ;D

    (Good one Proph).
    A good crotch to sniff. He is looking really solid.

    :
    But why release any practice squad material so early, wouldn't it be better to wait?
    I don't think that they would be fooling anyone by releasing the ones that they want to keep earlier rather than later.
