Geez, the first days of training camp haven't begun and Tomosina Powers is already in full panic mode. Someone at the paper needs to take him to the restroom and help him clean out his panties.

This is the answer to Ever see Favre frist pass. I myself didnt see it live only on replay & Favre frist pass went to his self & I dont know about how you judge it but in my book throwing to your self is a whole lot better then throwing a INT on the frist play of a Wild Card game & fumbling on the last play os that same game. I said this before What good is frist year stats on a QB there is many that put up good numbers & where are they now & there is many that dont have the numbers there frist year like Favre & Manning & look at Them now, there in the top 5 of the QBs playing in the NFL Brett Favre actually caught his own first pass. His first pass attempt was deflected by a defender and he caught the ball off of the deflection IS that as bad as Aarons wild Card game & it mite be Aarons 3rd year this year but he has been in the NFL from 2005 Aaron has had more time learning the packers offence Think there mite be a reason? Maybe the coaches knew something about Aaron that they didnt tell there fans, He is Slow & holding the ball to long Reason he thinks Slow I am not saying he is Dumb He is slow at learning This is why the Packs head coach didnt have a new game plan in the Wild Card game after playing the Cards in there last game of the season The coach couldnt change it for that Wild Card game & come up with a new playbook - Aaron didnt have the time to learn it Reason being he is slow & would have took more time then they had.>>> GO VIKINGS

Talk about a SLOW LEARNER?.........How long has it taken bert to learn NOT to throw Idiodic passes, at the worst time possible? I'll tell ya when it happens!.....19 years and counting. Aaron as played 2 years! Idiots. Slow?.........I think berts so Slow that he cant even make up his mind!....Maybe the queens should give him (more time)! After all he is slow, very slow!

When reporters start getting a little long in the tooth they call people named Toby.... Tony and spell check won't catch those. Oh... well.
Speaking of Toby..... I can't wait to see him plant his helmet in a linebackers chest as he goes through him. What a load... with power speed and balance. And the rock.. stays with him. We were fortunate to get him.

Like I said...

The acid Favre creates in your stomach should be up in your throat by kickoff.

"The Pack Blows?" Wow, that Vikings fan intellect is showing up already, even before Favre has proven he's way too important to come to training camp and actually lead the team. We'll see how the gimpy-ankled, intereception-throwing senior citizen handles himself this year. If "blows" is a word used to describe a team we'll also see how that plays out. Now, go have your mommy mix up some chocolate milk and get some cookies for you as it's probably snack time before your nap.

Remember, the "Twelfth Man" is a metaphoric reference to the fans. Don't take it literally.

Well, I see that some varmints have come slithering out of the slimy swamps of Wisconsin, babbling and cooing like deranged gooney birds setting on rotten nest eggs at lamfarty field..trying to hatch out some real good players....

Oldest team in the NFL, LoL.
Favre jacks up that number all by himself.
I agree about Pat Williams and Antoine, but Hutch should have several years as should Kevin Williams.
The line did play horrid in the New O. game, but sporting a first year center and a rookie at end, they should only get better.
Last year was a rare opportunity, but not much has changed for the Vikes.
Except that this year they will play with a chip on their shoulder.
Some will start to feel sorry for the competition in the North as the Vikings still rule.
5-1 against the little sisters of the poor, gb, chi, detox last year, how about a sweep this year? Sounds good

Perfect point, 40for60, on Favre jacking the numbers just himself. Kinda funny. Then add Pat Williams and even Antoine and that is old. But the skill positions, aside from Favre, are still pretty young. Peterson, Rice, Harvin are real young.

The "heatstroke at training camp" joke is still a sore spot, or did you forget about a certain Tackle who we would likely see retiring this year if it were not for heatstroke.

Sick and tired of little b*&tch number 4, worst is the embarrasement that Childress puts our organization through.
Nobody, NOBODY is bigger than the team and should be allowed to pull thi s&^t over and over.
Stay home Brett, you show us how you close seasons for over a decade now and here are some so-called fnas waiting with their knee pads on.
Show a little pride and hell with it, swin or sink with TJ, Sage and Webb. F&%cking eh...

Never considered it a 'joke' you sick bastard.
Korey Stringer' death was a tragedy, except maybe for some of the usual pack fans.

Let's see the outrage now when some sconny punk calls Korey Stringer' death a 'joke'.
They were all over the very mention of Sarah Palin's daughter, but just like Jolly, when it's one of their own, they morph into church mice.
