The NFL must have decided to lay off penalizing celebrations. Each week we seem to see more and more guys trying to break out the dance moves when he scores. We've seem some current steps, some old school ones, and some that are just flat out bad. Our first dance for Week 8 is Carolina Panther's running back DeAngelo Williams. Ummm...okay.... It was a heck of a run; that much is for certain (see below), but those moves? Dude--I've seen better rhythm from the geek on the wall with his hands in the air (like he just don't care).  Maybe I've just gotten spoiled from the awesome moves that Mike Tolbert has thrown down with in the end zone. Tolbert doesn't try to do anything crazy; he just breaks out stuff that is easy to do in football pads. Williams--I don't know what he is trying to do. Heck--should Tolbert hold a clinic maybe he can get veteran wide receiver Steve Smith to sit in. His little dance last w...

Vikings aiming for return to dominating ground game

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Take your pick. 54 to 13, or 30 to one. Those were the ratios Monday night for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman and running back Adrian Peterson. For the game, Freeman had 53 pass attempts and was sacked once. Peterson, the reigning MVP had 13 carries for 28 yards. In the fourth quarter, Freeman threw a staggering 30 passes with 19 incompletions...

Rodney Harrison makes bizarre accusation about Josh Freeman

Rodney Harrison was on with Amani & Eytan NBC Sports Radio and basically said Josh Freeman is faking (you can listen to the full audio here). It is very rare to hear players, even EX-player question each other injuries, but Harrison implies that Freeman seeing that the Vikings aren’t very good pulled a Roberto Duran. I would hope that isn’t the case, but Harrison who on...

Ponder will start for Vikings against Packers

Christian Ponder will start at quarterback for Minnesota against Green Bay on Sunday night, while Josh Freeman will be inactive after being cleared to practice. Next week's as-the-quarterback-carousel-turns episode has not been written yet, but the Vikings have their guy for the Packers game. Coach Leslie Frazier confirmed after practice on Friday that Ponder will start against...

Ponder gets another opportunity to disappoint against Packers

Minnesota Vikings starting QB for last week's game, the newly acquired Josh Freeman, apparently has a concussion, so he won't get his second start with the team afterall. That's either good news or bad news for Vikings fans (or both)... So by default, head coach Leslie Frazier will reluctantly turn to the formerly benched Christian Ponder, according to ...

An Open Letter to Vikings Fans

Dear Viking fans,This season has been a disaster. That much we can all agree on. However, how we emerge from the wreckage is a topic debated by every fan of the Vikings.Cleaning house seems to be an opinion encouraged by many. Firing head coach Leslie Frazier, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, and defensive coordinator Alan Williams are all ideas gaining traction, and I can guarantee...

The Josh Freeman Factor: New Starter Getting Unfair Rap In Minnesota

Last year, the Vikings got away with sub-par quarterback play by leaning on a stalwart defense and an unreal string of success from Adrian Peterson and finished with a respectable 10-6 record that included a coveted wild card playoff berth. Their lone postseason contest didn’t end pretty (a 24-10 loss to the Packers), but then again there was very little the team could do with...

Greg Jennings insists he feels no ill will toward Packers

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Greg Jennings spent his first summer with the Minnesota Vikings talking mostly about his former team, the Green Bay Packers. Jennings' strange, sometimes veiled shots at Green Bay and his former quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, naturally blew up bigger than maybe even Jennings expected once national blogs took his comments and ran with them. Jennings referred...

Jared Allen: Brett Favre shouldn't come back again

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- With news of Brett Favre being asked about a return to the NFL, Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said he would get on a plane again to Hattiesburg, Miss., to talk to his friend and former teammate. The approach this time would be a little different than three seasons ago when Allen, Ryan Longwell and Steve Hutchinson got on Zygi Wilf's private...

Josh Freeman suffered concussion, may not start against Packers

Tweet Just a day after announcing that Josh Freeman would start for the Vikings in week 8, Wednesday head coach Leslie Frazier announced that Freeman suffered a concussion against the Giants and may miss Sunday’s game against Green Bay: Coach Frazier just announced that Josh Freeman has a concussion. If he can't play on Sunday, Ponder...

Josh Freeman Says He Didn’t Hear About Rodney Harrison Saying He Faked His Concussion

Rodney Harrison believes that Freeman is faking his concussion because the Vikings are a bad team. Here is what Freeman had to say.

Christian Ponder to Start for the Vikings

Rodney Harrison chuckles at this. THIS JUST IN: Christian Ponder will start this week for the Vikings. Josh Freeman is out with a concussion. — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) October 25, 2013

Josh Freeman Dealing with Concussion

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Vikings QB Josh Freeman suffered a concussion in Monday night's loss to the Giants.Fantasy Spin:Christian Ponder was getting reps with the first team at practice on Wednesday and would be the favorite to start in Freeman's place Sunday against the Packers. Neither one is a viable fantasy option.
