    He could help plan LOVE BOAT 2 with his old mates :rotflmao:

    Ahhh wouldn't Drew "stick in the mud" Bledsoe be a nice addition in Minny... not sure whom is slower .. Brad Johnson or Long face.

    From PFTalk.com


    Although Tarvaris Jackson remains the clear favorite to win the starting quarterback job in Minnesota, there's talk in league circles that the Vikings are hoping to find a veteran backup before the start of training camp.

    Our guess is that coach Brad Childress (and perhaps some folks in the front office who might be in jeopardy if owner Zygi Wilf decides to dump the coach) wants to have a solid Plan B in place in the event that Jackson can't cut it. Currently, the alternative is Brooks Bollinger, who might be a decent in-game injury replacement but not the guy on whose shoulders a coach should pin his career.

    The only problem with this strategy is that there really aren't many/any veteran quarterbacks on the market. Drew Bledsoe opted for retirement. Daunte Culpepper is (or will be) available, but his bridge back to the land of Paul Bunyan was blown to smithereens in 2006. Chris Weinke, a local native, is available, but the only problem is that he's Chris Weinke.

    Another possibility would be for the Vikes to swing a deal for the eventual odd man out in Jacksonville, if the Jags land Daunte Culpepper. But Quinn Gray or David Garrard might not have the level of experience that the Vikes might be looking for.

    Perhaps the best bet is Kelly Holcomb, who's otherwise likely to get the short straw in Philly. Though his time with the Eagles has been short, he'd be able to continue to develop in an identical offense in Minnesota. Also, unless Donovan McNabb would have an unexpected setback in his ACL rehab that would land him on the PUP list, it's very likely that Holcomb will be cut, given the presence of A.J. Feely and the addition of Kevin Kolb. So the Vikes could likely snare him now for a seventh-round pick.

    From what I read. The Vikings and Daunte had a divorce that won't be reconciled, ever.

    Watch out Lions, Vikings will fight you for the bottom spot in the NFC North!

    Coldpooper isnt very good to begin with., when he was playing "chuck and duck" with Moss, they did well because that street-ball style was new to the league. well, thats not happening anymore. He will end up in Jacksonville and the vikings will be asking themselves why they picked up another running back when they could have gotten Quinn... unless Taylor is trade bait in the future? that backfield isnt like the saints with two distinct types of runners..... who knows?
