Powers: "Bernard Berrian is about as useful as a hood ornament." That's an insulting comment...to hood ornaments.

Gosh, maybe a 40 year old QB actually needed time in training camp to get in sync with his team. Yes I know there are injuries, but there are always injuries. Favre is a selfish ass, and he hides it behind his "aw shucks" talk.

But it will never be The Traitor's fault. Now he's throwing Berrian under the bus even when he throws into triple coverage.
Face it: He chumped the chumps.

Not taking anything away from the Dolphins but Berrian stunk. Didn't look like he put a lot of effort into that game. Time to make some changes at receiver, starting with him.
Favre was being Favre. He tries to make something happen and the results aren't always so good. Chilli and Bevell better come up with something to get that passing game going. I don't think the answer is currently on our roster.

It's not Favre, it's the receivers, or lack of. Harvin let one bounce off him at the goal line that was INT'd, Berrian is too feeble to wrestle a ball away for a catch, Shaincoe tries, but he's not a lead receiver, and Camarillo has yet to be used.

Might as well have Joe Webb learn the routes, this group is the lousiest of the lousy!

I said it before and Ill say it again. Please replace the x chz head favre. He was brought in because they thought he would give them the best chance to win. He is NOT getting it done. This yutz should be replaced by jackson for the rest of the season and he can just stand on the sidelines and watch the game as a spectator. It seems funny to me that everyone thought bert made our wide receivers better, when it was actually the receivers making plays and making brett look good. Hopefully chilly keeps brett in the games, they continue to lose, and the vikes end up bertless and bradless next season. Get the x-chzkurd outta there, he belongs on the sideline coaching the other qbs how to NOT throw INTs with the deadly accuracy that he possesses. I said it last season and it appears ill have to say it again. Please replace bert with someone more mobile who can make plays with his legs and not force plays when no one is open. Berts gotta go. Its comical to think that by halftime I was hoping they would put in joe webb instead of the old fossil but its true. With jackson or webb in there they woulda won that game. When the pass game isnt working you need to stick with the run game and with AD, Webb/Jackson, and Percy, they shoulda been able to put points on the board and not even think of allowing favre into the game to throw to the other team. I about puked when i heard the vikes were thinking of getting favre on the viking team and now i cannot even enjoy a game knowing hes the qb. He belongs on the farm milking goats, not throwing footballs.... His time is past and he needs to be removed, until then, we'll be out on the boat sundays catching us some fish.. GO GATORS

As an old Packer fan (and retired Pioneer Press employee) who heard-daily-last year from my old Viking fan friends, I have a question about this year.
Where the heck are you guys? No one wants to talk football this year!

shoulda grabbed mike vick when they had the chance lol. Start Jackson the rest of the season and see how he handles it. If he bombs, get webb in there and develop him. My choice would be to just get Webb in there now and let him get it going. Hes a RB/WR who can throw the ball just as well as jackson if not much better. So, who are the leading college qb prospects next year that we could possibly get our hands? lmao

Well, Good Morning Ranks..Nice to see you again.
Are you ready for all of the "Passion Purple" Karma to rear up and kick the Queens fans right in the coconuts? Yeah, I thought so.
I've been telling these Queens when they decided to tamper with the DIVA..

Starting out 0-2 is not a good thing, with Detroit coming in and then the bye week look for the Vikes to make a move, Jackson at wide receiver and Camarillo getting more playing time. Brett is not as sharp this year and lady luck has left the club....for now. Still need the o-line to play better and hopefully this will happen.Seems like all the teams in the league are pretty good and you cannot take off one day,( Mr. Barrian). Favre is still their best chance, but I am afraid that we have a Head coach who is looking like he just walked away from a car wreck...

Could it be that Brent is still on our side ? That he is an undercover agent for the Queens ? I mean..... HAve a great year. Get all the Queen fans creaming their jeans. Then throw the whole season away with one Brett Favre pass. Then you throw the whole team under a Purple bus. Play up to the media. Get 3 guys and a coach to come to your place to Give you the willies. Then come back without any training camp... And you stink up the place. Yep that is it. You can bet your duppa.....

Karma you da man. Keep up the great posts.
