Ah, excellent point.


Maybe saying, four RINGS would be more appropriate. :wink:

Okay Al Bundy. So sorry that you blew out your knee in high school. I guess the NFL will never know or appreciate what a loss that was :rofl:

They might have, I was a pretty good fullback!

People think I'm Paranoid because I own so many guns. If I own lots of guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

The players we signed away from GB have all done well in Minnesota. I see things as GB did not want to pay up to what these guys signed for. Why not continue to do this until we fail? Jennings will have a monster year. Get the camera's out. :rock:

Ryan Longwell. Darren Sharper. Brett Favre. Greg Jennings and now, Desmond Bishop.
The Vikes got Bishop fairly cheap and he will bring a good presence to the Vike's LB corp. Suck it Pukers :mrgreen:

Bishop had moments of greatness. Too bad it was paced by way too many games where he did practically nothing. Inconsistent is the best I could describe him.

You ever think the Vikings are going to stop flaunting the massive inferiority complex they have? Stopping the constant signing of ex Packers would go a long way.

Oh, so we sign former Packers players just because they were Packers players?

Good logic. :thumbsup: Watch out; if your head gets much bigger it might just explode! ;)

Yeah, last time I checked the NFL is a business. Why pass up on a guy who can potentially help our passing game just because he played with a rival in the past? I like how the Vikes give credit where it's due and give players a shot despite what team they came from. All of the players we have gotten prior to this season have had great seasons with us.

To you it may be overpaying, but with the cap-room we had, and the lack of depth at WR, I saw know wrong with getting Jennings. It was either him or Mike Wallace and I bet with him we would have had to fork over way more money than we paid for Jennings.

No, no, not JUST because they played for the Packers, I simply feel they feel more inclined to do so, yes, to stick it to the Packers. Tom Coughlin purposefully signed former Steelers, during his time as the Jaguars HC, it was all aiding an effort to establish to the team who the targets were, who the king in that division was, and who needed to be beat.

And lets face it, even your management knows who the king of the NFCN is, and its not the purple failures with the massive inferiority complex.

What do you call a Vikings with a Superbowl ring? An ex Packer.
