This guy is a A$$ & does not sound like a fan of the VIKES at all Who cares what this loser has to say from now. GO VIKINGS

This was, indeed, a Lions loss; it wasn't a Vikings win. The real turning point was the phantom holding call on a long run by the Lions in the first half. The Vikings won't win again until about Halloween.

The Lions? Everybody beats the Lions. I wouldn't dance in the street over this victory. Today the Lions were again their own worst enemy. As for Favre, the jury is out but his age is showing. An expensive $16 million gamble that may not pay. So far, after three games, he has nothing on T-Jack.

Sunday night - Scouting Jets Vs.Dolphins (1st quarter)- Queens have virtually no chance .. Could be a repeat of January 14, 2001: On a field of painted mud, the New York Giants defeat the Minnesota Vikings 41–0 in the NFC Championship game. GOOD LUCK

And now we know for sure that the Vikings are a little better than the Lions. Wowie! Now I won't be ashamed to wear my Favre jersey on my next trip to Wal Mart.

Dear Vikings receiver coach- how would you rate Berrian through the first 3 games? Is there something that bothers him? Doesn't he want to be the Vikings number 1 receiver? Doesn't Bret trust the guy? Does he feel pressure from the criticisms he is getting? Does he do well in practice but not during game situations?

I'm still pointing at you Bernard. You aint jumping, aint grindin, aint tryin. Seek the shelter of the pine if you're not interested in playing for your keep. Bernard, you suck.

...seek the shelter of the pine...that's brilliant...BB is dead weight for the "O" and BF knows it. unless the VIKES'S find someone to stretch the field...as good as AP is...he cannot carry the whole offensive load and win it all...GO VIKES!!!

Bernard Barrain should be given his walking paper after the season if he keeps up his play on the field.. I see no improvement.. He is no number 2 receiver maybe a number 3 at best... So BB don't let the door hit you in the A$$ on the way out at the end of the season if I was coach...
GO VIKES!!!

No matter who it is in the N.F.L. a win is a win and this is exactly what the Vikes needed. Adrian is on a mission and he has yet to drop the ball on the ground. The offensive line did very well when you consider who the Lions have up front on their D-line...Look at the Vikings scores and this team is not playing all that badly, 14-9 loss to the Super Bowl champions. A 14-10 loss to the Dolfish, and of course the continued beating of the Detroit Lions. The Viking defense is very ,very good with the new kid, Cook. When this club gets healthy and turnin on all cylinders, look-out. Childress would be a fool if he lets everyone go home during the bye week, the leaders of this club need to make a statement and tell everyone who can to stay at Winter Park and work on the passing game and get this team up to its full potential...Kevin Williams said it best, "you cannot just show up."

I never like to see an injury, but Ryan Cook has finally been given a chance to play center, his natural position. Once he gets comfortable, he should be an upgrade over undersized John Sullivan, never a suitable replacement for Matt Birk. Can you imagine if we had both Birk and Darren Sharper last year? I know, water under the bridge, but I can dream, can't I?

People get down so easily. Look at the standings! They are now tied for 3rd and only one game behind the leaders. Get a grip and support the team or stay home.
Cowboys fans are the same here. They are only one game out now also after winning their first game.

The LUCKY team is New Orleans who should be 0-3

Has anyone heard status on Sullivan? I know he's undersized, but I'm more concerned with his ability to stay healthy than anything else. My money is on Loadholt to be the bane of our offense this year. The dude's either holding or jumping early. Although I wasn't laughing at the time, it was almost comical watching him yesterday. It just goes to show size isn't everything.

I hope the offense gets lots of reps in these next 2 weeks. They could use it, and Favre could use some time with his new receivers.

Must-win? Isn't that a bit overused already?

Favre's presser said it all. He's know BB shouldn't be in the NFL and misses Rice terribly. In addition, he misses Sage on the sidelines comparing notes. Sad to see and if Wilf doesn't get more help, Favre is going out on a stretcher soon and you know what that means. TJack baby.

Childress is giving them the week off of course... they don't need any work or anything. He's been more lax on these guys than Tice since he got his new contract. (thank you Favre)
