"I don't see him out there getting hit or nothing like that. The commissioner makes $9 million, so you tell me where the balance is? He doesn't put his life on the line, he pushes a pen."

As noted by DCPurple, Ray Edwards isn't terribly pleased that he'll be a restricted rather than unrestricted free agent this offseason while Roger Goodell brings in a hefty salary for pushing a pen rather than offensive linemen.

The Road Back Begins for Henderson

7

"I tell one thing about E.J. Henderson, there is not a guy in the world who wants to play more and come back from that injury." That's according to Rick Spielman, who highlighted the fact that Henderson has been at the Vikings practice facility just about every day this month. After such an ugly injury, taking the field on Sundays would be an unmistakable signal of an outstanding work ethic. Best of luck, E.J. We're all hoping for the best.

Your Super Bowl Highlights

7

For old time's sake, here's your usual highlight vid with the radio calls -- though for the first time since September, you won't be hearing Paul Allen's voice. Whelp, remove another team from the list of franchises that have never won a Super Bowl (a list that has been trimmed to ten teams).

Strib: Game Time for Stadium Debate

9

A level-headed, balanced perspective on the stadium issue? A rare sight indeed. Pretty good stuff from the Strib's editorial board; I hope they keep nudging the Vikings to provide creative solutions, the politicians to provide real leadership on this issue, and the public to keep an open mind.

Big Mac's Strange Pro Bowl Absence

16

Bryant McKinnie has achieved the impossible. He improbably generated some controversy for the Pro Bowl, a game that isn't exactly conducive to controversy.

More Vikings Decline Pro Bowl Invite

31

The tally is now at five for the number of Vikings who have declined their Pro Bowl invites. Today, Kevin Williams and Sidney Rice joined Brett Favre, Antoine Winfield and Percy Harvin as Pro Bowlers who won't be participating in the game. So the Pro Bowl just got even more boring.

ESPN: Another Season "Highly Unlikely" for Favre

34
Brett Favre's return for another season is "highly unlikely, but it has been an awesome year," the Minnesota Vikings quarterback told ESPN's Ed Werder after the Vikings' loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. And so it begins. Favre says he'll talk things over with his family soon.

An Unfortunate Distinction

36

History was made last night, but not in a good way. The Vikings outgained New Orleans 475-257 in total yardage, and that +218 yardage differential is the largest ever for any losing team in NFL postseason history.

Vikings Stumble, Fumble to Devastating Loss

299

After a game that was constantly suspenseful, the Vikings are heading home while the Saints are heading to Miami.

Harvin Misses Another Practice

23

Freakin' migraines. Percy Harvin was held out of practice for the second day in a row due to another episode of migraine headaches, an issue he's been experiencing for a number of years. Chilly told the assembled media today, "We’ll just have to see how he comes along. It’s less than ideal, but he’s played under the same circumstances this year." We'll pass along Harvin's official status when the injury report is released. Update: Harvin is listed as questionable.

Brett completes a 47-yard touchdown pass to Sidney. Sidney does a chest bump with Ragnar. Brett also does a chest bump. Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh still has no idea that any of this occurred.

Jared Allen's Prediction for Sunday

20

Breaking News: Vikings Forfeit Playoff Game

229

48

"Honestly, I see us sitting here next week having this press conference again. If that doesn't happen, to me it will be a shock."

You tell 'em, Brett.

Welcome to the Hood

267

The Vikings are back at it after taking the week off and finding out Saturday who their opponent would be for next week's showdown in the Metrodome. And by showdown in the Metrodome, we mean showdown in the hood.

Frazier Turns Down Seattle Interview

30
Once Mora was fired, the Seahawks called the Minnesota Vikings to seek permission to interview defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, the source told Clayton. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Frazier declined. Update: Not so fast says Judd Zulgad, who reports that Frazier will indeed interview with the Seahawks on Saturday. But I still wouldn't consider him anything more than an extreme longshot for the job.

NFL Films Recaps the Regular Season

1

The outstanding NFL Films put together an excellent highlight video of the entire 2009 Vikings regular season. Great stuff from them as usual.

Frazier a Serious Candidate for Buffalo

16

Are the Buffalo Bills interviewing Leslie Frazier to satisfy the requirements of the NFL's Rooney Rule? No -- signs point to him being a very serious candidate for the job.

Frazier Will Interview for Buffalo Job

38

Once Again, Favre Named Player of the Week

26

For the third time this season, Brett Favre is the NFC offensive player of the week. This is the 16th time in his career that he's received player of the week honors -- but never before has he received it three times in one season. He finished the regular season with 316 passing yards and four touchdowns against the Giants (his sixth 300-yard game of the year).

Vikings Destroy Giants (And Now We Wait)

13

The Vikings closed out the season with a dominant win over a disinterested New York Giants team. Their playoff position? To be determined.

Let the guy who is the best in the world at what he does do what he does. Brad Childress can't say...

39

Let the guy who is the best in the world at what he does do what he does. Brad Childress can't say that. Brett Favre can. Give him the keys and say, 'Hey, there's a reason we sent the private jet, a reason why I picked you up, and you've won three MVPs.

Trent Dilfer has quickly become an outspoken critic of Brad Childress.

Favre's Comeback Falls Short in Chicago

157

With the potential loss of a first round bye on the horizon, the Vikings have no time to waste in turning the page on a tough month of December.

Slow Start, Late Mistakes Cost Vikings

284

The start was horrendous. The comeback was magnificent. The ending cost the Vikings a chance at the top seed in the NFC and could result in them not even getting the benefit of a first round bye.
