Man, it's good to see A.W. back on the practice field taking reps and such. We have a comfortable lead in the NFC North and Detroit is in town on Sunday plus Seattle as well the next and the back ups are playing okay. So, lets not rush and bringing back A.W.

Give AW another game off. He needs to stay off that hard carpet and heal up completely. It helps that GB and Chicago are contributing to our success by both losing while we are at home resting.

As long as Vikings fans want Winfield to sit
why not sit Farve out until the playoffs too?

Sounds like the cry of a drowning man who is going down for the third and final time.

The Vikes should do whatever it takes to get homefield for the playoffs. That being said, if they can do it while sitting Winfield, fine. If they can do it while pulling Farve out if they are far enough ahead, fine. You want to balance winning and protecting your best players for the playoffs.

Does anyone remember the days when teams would pull their starting QB, and other starters, in the fourth quarter of a win and the backups would play in what used to be called "garbage time". I wonder why that doesn't happen anymore.

People started pushing the little arrows on their remote labeled "channel" a little too much during garbage time.

Oh, and by the way. Garbage time has not disappeared completely. The Green Bay Packturds play 4 quarters of it.

They should not rush Winfield back. Where would they be if he re-broke his foot against the Lions? We are capable of beating them without him. I'm not saying they will role over and give us a blowout. However if they play as team they can beat anybody. You have to be able to win despite injuries to be a contender.

Rest your legs shorty... we got you covered.
i agree to rest him against the Lions and Hawks but he needs to be back for the Bears game. We cant look past this opponent, the way things are going it could possibly the Division clinching game!

So far so good. Thanks Vikes. A Super Bowl win is what fans hunger for. We've also appreciated the fact that a lot of the team members have been active in the community. A double thanks. We pray that you guys will be injury free and that you dominate during the playoffs particularly during the Super Bowl. Good luck!
