    All signs point to a long era of mediocrity for the vikes. The locker room is in disarray, they have a lot of players heading for free agency who likely won't want to stay after all of this bs, they have no plan for the future at QB (Tavaris Jackson isn't going to want to stay after the the vikes treated him), Childress's contract got exented through 3013 (assuming he's not fired)

    They may already be the laughingstock of the NFC North. Come on Detroit you can do it, take third!!!:happy0005:

    He can't be traded again this season since the trade deadline expired a couple weeks ago. Only way he winds up back with the Vikes is if whatever team he winds up on next happens to cut him and they get him off waivers or negotiate a free agent deal with him.

    This makes me wonder- What's Brett think? I mean, he retired after we failed to get him in 2008. Literally, the day after Moss worked out a deal with the Pats, Favre retired. You gotta believe he is none too happy about this.

    Seriously, seeing all this disarray makes me absolutely grateful for the staff we have. From Ted Thompson all the way down to the janitorial staff, we have a great group of people running our team. No, we're not perfect, but we're also not a huge joke either.

    hmmmm. Moss playing for a new contract. Like he was with the Vikings. Moss jogging his routes. Moss not making an effort to go after a pass. Moss acting like a fool at a press conference causing a team distraction. hmmmmm. HELL NO!

    The best thing that could happen out of this, is if the Bears sign him.

    I've been reading over there, this guys seems to have his head on tight:

    Not all of them are disillusion. I guess they had to hit rock bottom to see the light.

    Or such studs as Aaron Rouse, Abdul Hodge, Donnell Washington or BJ Sander... Jason Spitz gets a pass for still being in the NFL

    BTW, Seattle traded a 4th for Lynch

    The Vikings are like that car accident on the side of the road.

    Everyone slows down to get a good look, but then passes on by while thinking, "Glad it's not me!"

    That's the best idea I've heard yet!!! Bears would probably do it too for the same reason the Vikings signed him. An act of desperation to save a sinking ship. Trouble with that is I can actually see Moss doing some good for the Bears. It may backfire for the Vikes and likewise, us.

    That is the same date that Favre is going to retire! Coincidence, ...I don't think so!

    The woes continue. I read on the Viking board (they didn't list a source so I can't verify accuracy) that AP's ankle is worse than he thought, he pretty much played the rest of that game on pure adrenaline after he came back. Now they are saying he might not be back.

    It'll take them a while to rebuild. Those up for free agency are gonna be out of there like a bat out of hell. I wonder how many with current contracts are gonna try to wiggle out of them. It's like a sinking ship and everyone is trying to get off before they drown.

    I'm pretty sure it was Percy Harvin, not Adrian. Now AP's the only healthy impact player they have...

    The best part about all of this is that the Vike's will have to deal with finding a new coach, changing schemes, getting a new quarterback, and all of the players wanting to get out of there ASAP! :viksux:


    Edit: Oops! Looks like Kitten beat me to it!

    I dont know if this has been brought up, but I am not going to dig through 9 pages of text trying to find it.. I'm really surprised this doesn't happen more often. Maybe its just my baseball intuition kicking in, but if I guy is going to half *** his way through a game then maybe he doesn't deserve to get paid. There are so many NFL wideouts with this diva complex and its time the teams that put up with this type of play either bench them or kick them to the curb.

    But whatever, I guess I take the packers receiving core (and their attitudes) for granted! :D

    It would be hard to determine if Minnesota would even get a compensatory pick for Moss.

    Minnesta would have to lose Moss without signing other comparable free-agents. A compensatory pick is only awarded if player(s) lost is greater than player(s) gained. The formula for a compensatory pick is decided through playing time, production and salary. Production has thus far been low, not to mention he would have only played half a season with the Vikings.

    That's what sucks the most for them and they are out a 3rd round draft pick, all of that wasted.

    The ones who are probably laughing their butts off right now are the Patriots. They got rid of a thorn in their side and gained a 3rd round pick. Vikings get the short end of the stick, meanwhile the Patriots are laughing all the way to the bank.

    Once again notice the difference between Mike McCarthy and Chilly. McCarthy recently said the problems on offense are his fault. Chilly has blamed the refs, his QB and now Moss. McCarthy and TT have taken a lot of heat the past few years. I think we ought to give them credit when credit is due. In this case, McCarthy has manned up and Chilly uses lies and blame-shifting to try to save his own butt.
