Big tilt this Sunday - could be the biggest tilt of next year. Next year? Yes, a win could mean playing the Saints & Giants next year and a loss means playing the Bucs and the Redskins.
Draft pick is also on the line - right now it looks to be the number 9 pick and a win could mean about 5 spots higher. Right now the linebacker corp looks very thin, we could see some practice squad guys playing.
Between the Bears giving up and the Vikings trying to throw the game this could look like a bad Pro Bowl game. About the only hope is for Kalil to let Jared Allen get some sacks, which could happen. BTW - good move by the brass to let Jared go. Always tough to let a popular player go who is on the downhill slide but maybe the same will happen this offseason with Greenway. Barr should be the only returning LB starter next year - I look for some moves in the draft and free agency to address the LB issue.
Everything must not be as rosy in Seattle as it used to be. Isn't skittles breath Lynch unhappy there too all of a sudden? Maybe the Jacker will ask Beast Mode to carpool here if AP does indeed not come back. Skol!
The Vikings have reached out to former Viking quarterback Shaun Hill's agent to gauge his interest in returning to Winter Park to back up Mr. Throwsevelt. Shaun has filled in for QB's like Matt Stafford in Detroilet and Sam Bradford in St Louie.
Viking trivia note:
The only players to wear #10 for the purple were Fran Tarkenton and King Hill (no relation to Shaun).
