Vikings Quarterback Hopes Dwindling

Yes, the Minnesota Vikings could have had Jay Cutler. I love Jay Cutler. I would have ran out and bought a purple Cutler Jersey today if they would have signed him, but nooooooo. The word on the street is that “some elements of the Minnesota coaching staff weren't sold on Cutler.” What? And you are sold on Tavaris Jackson? That doesn’t make sense!

If the Vikings hope to have any fan support next season, they are going to have to do something at the quarterback position. My Vikings Quarterback Hopes are Dwindling. Fast.

Darren Sharper is a Saint

Really, he is. A New Orleans Saint.

It looks like Vikings Vixen is going to have to find a new favorite Vikings jersey to wear on game day because Darren Sharper agreed to a contract with the New Orleans Saints. I knew the Vikings weren’t interested in keeping him, but I think he was a real fan favorite and I am sad to see him go. I wish him all the best and I look forward to seeing his interception numbers in double digits next season.

Sage Rosenfels – what can you say?

One of my friends works at one of those ticket broker places and she said her boss asked her to write a Sage Rosenfels biography for one of their websites. Now, my friend is not a football expert and frankly I would be more qualified to write a biography, but she did a pretty good job. You can check it out over on Vikings Tickets. Funniest part? She said the hardest part about the Rosenfels biography was finding something positive to say about him that would make people want to buy Vikings tickets to see him play. LOL! Way to build fan support team Childress!

Vikings Roster Ever Changing

AHHHHHHH! (in true Macaulay Culkin ‘Home Alone’ fashion). The Minnesota Vikings Roster is changing at a rapid pace. I am not sure I want to list all of the changes so here are just a few that I care about (after all it’s my blog...and yes, I know it is Thursday - but it's so early in the morning, it might as well be Wednesday).

Matt Birk – gone to the Baltimore Ravens, signed a 3 year deal. We will miss his steady hands at center especially since we have so much turmoil at the QB position. Personally, I don’t like him, I think he has a stinky attitude, so good riddance.

“The Minnesota Vikings thank Matt for all he did for the organization both on and off the field over the past 11 years. Matt has done a great job and we wanted him to return to the Vikings in ’09, but at this point Matt wanted a change of scenery. We wish him the best and know that he will always be a part of the Vikings family. We look forward to playing Matt this upcoming season at the Metrodome.”

Vinny Ciurciu – gone. I had high hopes for Vinny even if it was just because I liked his name.

Darren Sharper – will probably be gone soon, which means I am going to need to buy a new Vikings jersey this year. Who will I buy? That’s a topic for another blog post.

Jim Kleinsasser – here. The Vikings resigned him. Duh.

“We wanted him back and we’re glad he took time out from ice fishing to come in and sign his contract. Jim’s an important part of our offense and the kind of guy you want in your locker room.”

T.O. - a Vike? Maybe. Cowboys let him go and we need a receiver. It could be another “Randy Moss” in a Vikings jersey episode. I bet the Minneapolis meter maids are shaking in their boots at the thought of Terrell Owens in town.
