Lloyd says kickoff issues are corrected

2

He saw on game film that he got to the ball too quickly. He should be kicking deeper against the Broncos

Two more cuts

+

Bill Noethlich (T) and Marko Mitchell (WR) cut. Sidney Rice, as expected, is placed on the PUP list.

Right from the first day of training camp, I’ve seen an evolution. I’ve seen a growth in Tarvaris. Not that I haven’t seen it from Sage.

The current quarterbacks as of Monday morning, August 30th, are: Brett Favre, 40, under contract through 2010 season Tarvaris Jackson, 27, under contract through 2010 season Sage Rosenfels, 32,...

Vikings' offense "in flux"

1

With a lack of continuity at offensive line and wide receiver causing sacks and interceptions, the starters might play some in the fourth preseason game.

Harvin hopeful that migraine issue is identified, being treated

Trade Toby Gerhart for Randy Moss?

I have not been on the Toby Gerhart bandwagon very much. My concern has been his upright running style. He has been popped hard in the Vikings camp this year many times. On the field, he has almost...

Pasquarelli: Vikings offense to change for 2010

Peterson will get more carries and maybe play some third downs. Gerhart isn't ready for the third-down role.

John Sullivan expected to practice Tuesday

1

Cooper got some valuable reps in, and now Herrera has shown he can play center too. It will be nice to have Sully back.

Wanted: one healthy wide receiver

The injury bug has struck the Viking's receiving corps. Percy Harvin's migraines have him trying to get back into game shape after missing most of training camp. Chances are he will miss...

Sorry, Joe. They gotta keep Sage

1

Mark Craig points out that Jackson is injury-prone, and so the Vikings need Rosenfels on the 53-man roster. This means Joe Webb would end up on the practice squad.

Favre return has makings for disastrous sequel

3

A writer predicts that Favre and Childress will clash. In my opinion, the old coach could learn a few tricks from the superstar quarterback, but the superstar quarterback needs to admit he has done well partially because he is in the old coach's system.

Gerhart takes his lumps

+

He has taken a lot of big shots in training camp. I think he will be fine once he gets his feet moving quickly.

Loss of Lloyd has Carolina concerned

+

The ability of Rhys Lloyd to kick off deep is discussed.

Childress has veto power for QB picks

1

This Star Tribune article by Judd Zulgad tries to read between the lines and then suggests that Childress has a veto over quarterback draft picks.

Early draft grade: Vikings get a C-

It's impossible to grade a draft until years later, but what fans want to know right away is how well the Vikings seem to have done. In my opinion, they get a C-. In contrast, the 2009 draft was an...

Mariucci: Favre doesn't know about 2010

+

Not only is Favre not sure yet, but his ankle is still swollen from the NFCCG. Get well soon, #4! Like I have said before, whatever Favre decides is fine with me. He has earned the right to make any decision he wants. I want him back, but it's his decision to make.

2003 draft "missed turn" explained

+

ESPN's Kevin Seifert explains how the Vikings missed their turn in the 2003 draft, while still drafting the player they wanted, Kevin Williams. According to Seifert's unsourced report, it was a combination of phone lines being jammed and Red McCombs wanting to draft Kevin Williams a couple of spots lower. Another point of interest is that Byron Leftwich almost was drafted by the Ravens. It's too bad that Seifert didn't provide any sources with his report.

Catcher and third base, 2010 and 2011

Jackson signs RFA tender

2

All right! Welcome back, T-Jack! Judd Zulgad, Star Tribune, writes: "Tarvaris Jackson presumably will assume the No. 2 role again this season if, as expected, Brett Favre returns for his 20th NFL season."

Ray Edwards will miss most of the Vikings' offseason program

+

He says he's not mad at the team. Instead, he's mad that he is not an unrestricted free agent. He doesn't specify whether he is mad at the NFL or the union, or if he's just generally mad. The article does not explain why he will miss most of the offseason program, although it is voluntary for veterans.
