Bradford not present at the start of practice. I'd be surprised if he suited up.

Figures. I am bringing my gf to her first vikings game this weekend. We'll we've seen a few Timberwolves, Wild , and Gopher hockey games and we are 5-0, so maybe she will help...

I still think the Vikings have a good shot this weekend. TB doesn't have as many weapons as Pitt and their defense isn't as good. Plus that stadium is a big home field advantage.

Either way, I told my Gf to bring her 'A' game.

The truth hurts. Maybe not as much as jumping onto a bicycle with the seat missing, but it hurts.

I'm incredibly pessimistic. Our offensive line isn't good, despite its week 1. McCoy/Spence will be incredibly disruptive and I have zero faith in Waynes matched up against Evans or Jackson. If I was Tampa Bay I'd have Jackson throw deep shots to Jackson all game and wait for the PI.

If Bradford was playing, I'd think they would stand a bit more of a chance. Even then I wouldn't like their odds, even at home. Really hope I'm wrong.

Mike Harris' condition revealed. He has retired.
After tests were conducted at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, it was determined Harris had a congenital condition known as brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM). The Mayo Clinic website describes it as “a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain.’’

Sounds scary but looks like the prognosis is good. Worth the read. Good luck to Mike. He grew into being a reliable starter. Really sucks for him.

That's a tough break. I hope football didn't exacerbate the problem.

I love being wrong. Remmers surprised me Sunday. He was actually...good? That can't be right.

Just to get a good laugh, Matt Kalil is currently ranked 61st out of 72 qualifiers according to PFF. Riley Reiff is ranked 18th and Mike Remmers is ranked 19th. :shock:

So maybe finally, the "Spielman doesnt know what he's doing" stuff could actually stop for once.

Reiff got a 5 year $58.5 mill deal
Remmers got a 5 year $30 mill deal

Matt Kalil got a 5 year 55 mill deal :lol: :lol:
