Mark Rosen speaking on KFAN said that it's funny that Edwards/Williams/Brinkley did not give the cheap shot treatment to Percy Harvin as a rookie.
I guess Mark Rose is not bright enough to know the difference between a running back, who has regular contact with the d-line, and a wide receiver that rarely comes in contact with the d-line, especially in camp.
It's hard to imagining Fat Pat running 30 yards down field to deliver a shot on Percy...

Regardless, I agree with you, it does appear that Edwards is acting like a jerk.

Exactly. Really pissed me off that they did not put a single good lick on Brees while their teammate was getting pounded illegally and late more than once.

Good for Ray..........rookies need to know their place. Was at camp and the Stanford BOY looks like a HS player compared to the great athletes he is going against. He will be a bust.
Gerhart a bust?

Your mother must have smoked crack when she was pregnant with you. Gerhart will be here a lot longer than Ray The Big Dumb POS Edwards.

Why must people make a mountain out of a mole hill. It's football folks, fights happen all the time. Nothing to do w/ race, just two guys who let their competitiveness get the best of them. it's not the blacks picking on the poor little white kid, it's two tough football players working some stuff out. the only reason you guys on here are saying that is because Gerhart just so happens to be white. If he was black you wouldn't give this story a second thought, but since he's white all of a sudden it's a big deal. Please.

They werent beating on AP and Percy because they werent making outrageous public statements about being discriminated against for bogus reasons, so if a rookie puts himself out there like that what do you expect? I know it might be a shocker but college stars don't always become NFL stars and first round picks. Especially when their playing style doesnt translate to the NFL. Just ask Eric Crouch. This is football and if people dont like that people are getting hit on the field go watch some soccer.

We should have got rid of him for a second round pick and let Robison play in his place.

OX you hit the nail ont he head. The Packers are a very good team. I will grant them that. It's always the two games a year you just can't miss as a fan. I happen to think the Vikings are better. But these idiot Packer fans who come onto a Vikings blog are just such a waste of space. I find nothing funny or interesting about them. Nothing they could say or do would make me go "oh gee, I never thought of it like that. I renounce my loyalty to the Vikings and switch to the Packers".

They are just so boring and one-trick-ponies.

The Eye says, "Edwards should pick his spots more strategically. Looks like a real tough guy going after a rookie back in training camp. Where in Hades was he last year against Carolina and Chicago late in the year? He and his fellow defensive mates should have been wearing bras and skirts they way they tackled, I mean missed tackles in December. Those two games cost the Vikings playing a home NFC Championship game. He's a one season wonder that will disappear this year.
Harsh. Anyway, Edwards has been showing talent for more than just the year past. I hope he can turn his flash into consistent stardom. You're right that that game would have been different in Minnesota. Oh well...maybe this year. Skol Vikings.
