Let's be clear - Shiancoe led Vikings receivers in TD's, but NOT the whole team. That would be Adrian Peterson.

Got it?

Good.

Shiancoe is an interesting guy but nothing more than an average pass-catching TE - he would be easy to replace. Everyone knows Favre is the reason Shiancoe had a career year. Mike Tice could probably come back and catch a dozen TDs if he had #4 hitting him between the numbers all season long.

I don't know about that, homey. He did pretty good in 2008 too, even with 2 lesser QB's throwing the ball.

Besides, JimisRite sucks. Am I rite?

Straight cash, homey! Take it to the bank...

From the interweb, courtesy Al 'Sex Poodle' Gore:

"Shiancoe led the NFC tight ends with 7 touchdowns in 2008 and ranked 3rd by a tight end in the NFL."

And we all know how he did in '09.

Yeah, but it's OK. They're looking at using him to replace McKinnie at LT when his contract is up. That would give Russell two years to raise his weight from 300 pounds up to an acceptable 335. He'll have that locked up by midseason...

Ha Ha, yeah his weight is up that high, unreal, ESPN sources reported that so it's anyone's guess if it's true, AZ was also mentioned as a team in the running for him.

Russel isn't coming to vikings it's just those stupid espn reporters, they never like the vikings, qb's, so they always say it's a good landing spot for any qbespn network is the worst network for sports

But we REALLY need another lame QB. Why would they make so much stuff up to fool us like Brett Favre does?

I know Russell has a bad work ethic & was always overweight But he was with The Raiders Poor guy had 3 coaches the time he was there none was any good & not a WR or TE to speek of What Russell needed was some coaching You cant just tell someone to do sometihng & not show them how Russell can make any throw on the field also Russell looked so good at the combine If he can keep his weight down & better coaching with & a front line he mite be ok I am not saying The VIKES should pick him up but it cant hurt to look if he shows he is willing to put more time in on his work ethic & lose weight Why not ask him into camp for a look. The VIKEs do have a better Front line & WRs & TE . The reason ESPN is talking about Russell is dennis Green is coaching him now & they need a story & being ESPN they made one up .>>> GO VIKINGS

Are you serious? He's been one of the top receiving Tight Ends in football the past 3 seasons. Having Favre last year helped put him over the top, but he put up great numbers with T-Bone Jackson and Head-Butt Frerotte throwing him the ball before that.

As far as QBs go, We have what appears to be a good, young, upcoming one named Joe Webb...

The Vikings are in a tough situation until they get this stadium deal done.I hope they settle the cba settled cause a strike would be the worst thing.
