The trade deadline has come and gone and while the Vikings did not make any moves, the good news is that Golden Tate and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix are no longer in the NFCN. Addition by others' subtraction. Tate always killed the Vikes. Good riddance!

Tate has had some monster games against us. Not sad to see him go :)

#Vikings rookie guard Colby Gossett is signed by the Cardinals to their 53-man roster, so he's off their practice squad. The Vikings replace him on the practice squad with guard Landon Turner.

Chad Beebe has been activated to the 53. Gotta imply Diggs sits.

Being reported Rhodes suffered a setback in Friday's practice. Still questionable but will be less than 100 IF he plays.

Ugh.

Well, there's been tons of argument amongst talking heads about whether Adam Thielen is the best receiver in the NFL. Virtually every one of them says "no," in large part because they think he doesn't get doubled because Diggs is on the other side.

Time to prove the naysayers wrong, Adam.

Vikings waived OT Storm Norton. May signify Reiff will return. If so, does Hill stay a starter or has O'Neil earned the job?

If it's not O'NEILL I'll be pissed.

Beebe is somewhat a surprise getting moved to the 53 man roster. Must be showing good in practice.

My thoughts are that O'Neil will keep his spot. But who knows what the coaching staff will do.

Cardinals just waived Bradford, so we just lost a third-round 2019 compensatory draft pick.

That blows. Is Bradford hurt?

Vikings @ Bears week 11 flexed to Sunday Night Football

Have I mentioned how much I hate the Vikings playing prime time games?
