I hope he comes back here. Solid player.

I'm impressed with his play in MN so far, and he seems well positioned to take over for Pat Williams when he retires.

That said, W_T_F?!?

What kind of a douch*bag complains about the paint job on the lockers??

While you're trying to answer that one, keep in mind he's already made more than $1,000,000 per NFL sack.

Guy sounds a little mental to me. Not as mental as bIG JOHN FROM WI, but still, pretty messed up.

We have tremendous depth on the D-line, I hope he returns as well, P Williams cannot play forever.

He kind of sounds like a good...and a d**k, all the same time. That's not easy to accomplish!
Depth is a good thing.

Jimmy was young and dumb when he came out but looks like he has a good team and coach nice to see a guy getting wiser with age.....

The man wants a ring. Why wouldn't he want to be here?

Jimmy has found a home and for a lot of NFL players that never happens. He's also a testament to what Childress has done with the players and coaching staff he's assembled here. This team reeks with talent and they have become a close nit group with aspirations of going to the top of the league. All one needs to do is look across the river to east to see the opposite happening.

Hang around Jimmy, it's only going to get better if everyone is able to remain fairly healthy and you just might find yourself getting sized for a new ring before it's over.

when the vikings signed kennedy last season i was checking his track record and was like "oh god". he looked like a career fill-in that nobody wanted to hang on to for long, being bounced around from team to team. he's been looking good so far this year though. he was part of that game-ending goal line stand in preseason against kc (i believe). he's young enough yet to where he can keep making improvments if he stays with the system.

I like this guy...when he's in there's no drop off. Big Pat is 37 years old, needs to be platooned. Robison needs more reps at defensive end and should be platooned with Edwards. D-line is a strength for the Vikings, and depth and experience solidifies that.

Linebackers need some depth, as proved last year when EJ went injury there would really hurt this club.

Winfield being out has given some much needed playing time for unused D-backs. Asher Allen looks to be the real deal...

The is crazy, he hears voices telling him where to play and then the voice is giving wrong information. Isn't that clinically insane to hear voices? I guess it is unless you claim it's god then you can get by with it. Can't these morons make up their own minds without blaming someone or something else. Sick..... These teams need a pyscho coach to deal with these nut cases.

Sometimes the posters on these sites are exceedingly odd. Mr. Kennedy sounds like a good man who hopes and prays that he has found a home. It's just good to hear someone speak highly of the coaching situation here. God know, most of us, myself included, have not been enamoured of Childress and Bevell and the lot. I hope Mr. Kennedy finds happiness here and also helps the team. And, by the way, have any of you bull roarers out there ever had a job or worked for an employer that was just a bad fit? If not, I recommend it as a learning experience. Then, when you get in a good situation, you truly appreciate it. Mr. Kennedy appears to be in a good situation for him at this stage of his life. Good luck to him.

The chemistry on this team is better then I've ever seen. I don't know if that is all Bret Favre or not. I have a hunch it's more then that.

Like it or not, Farves greatest strength is his ability to get his team mates to play better than they are. Look at what he did for a bunch of nothings in Green Bay.

Best post of the day, by far! So true. Good stuff, dude;-) Pukers were NOTHING before Favre, and are nothing after Favre.
barely missed a bust

glad we didn't take you in the first round either because we took kevin williams instead. i'm glad we dodged ourselves of a first round bust.
