Hey guys, remember that Chris Johnson guy? The hold-out who ran for a total of something like 13 yards in his first five games last season? Yeah, him. Well, he's "back" and more dangerous than ever, and also touting himself as the best running back in the league. From a recent Pro Football Talk article:
“I feel I am still the best back in the league, and I have no problem saying that,” Johnson said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “None of the active backs have done anything that I have done in the first four years, even though I had a bad year last year. So I still feel like I am the best back in the league.”
/Insert "Not this **** again" GIF.
Listen up, you clown, you are NOT the best back in the league, and quite frankly it's sacrilige to suggest so. And yes, you DID have a ****** season last year. You don't get a free pass on that. That bad season and poor performance is all on you. "But my offensive line was crap last year...
BEST OF MAXIM

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Antoine Winfield flashed his typical smile while walking off the Minnesota Vikings' practice field at Winter Park last week, seemingly happy to be back on the field after missing the end of last year due to a broken collarbone.
Winfield's return to field for Minnesota is a bit earlier this season, but not because of any injury. The 5-foot-9 cornerback...
When choosing underrated and overrated players, many things come into play. The player's personality (on and off the field), salary and most importantly on-field performance all create the perception one way or the other if a player is underrated or overrated.
With that in mind here are my picks, one in each category, for the most underrated and overrated player on the 2012...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings have added another wide receiver to the mix in trying to upgrade the struggling unit.
Minnesota signed undrafted rookie A.J. Love on Tuesday, the 12th receiver on the team's 90-man roster. Love caught 74 passes for 1,092 yards and eight touchdowns in his time at the University of South Florida. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Love had two seasons...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Returning to the Minnesota Vikings for his fifth NFL season, linebacker Erin Henderson has learned all about the harsh realities of life in the NFL.
Henderson's been dealing with them since he went undrafted in 2008. He had to work himself into a roster spot and then keep himself there with continued improvement. This offseason, he discovered the business...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Wide receiver Percy Harvin was missing from the Minnesota Vikings' organized team activities Wednesday, a day after practicing for the first time since shoulder surgery in April.Last week, coach Leslie Frazier praised many of the team's leaders for showing up at nearly every workout and practice so far this offseason. There has been more than 95 percent...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Christian Ponder dropped back on one 11-on-11 play during the Minnesota Vikings' organized team activities on Wednesday and lofted the ball deep down the field for a receiver.The long toss was the exact type of pass Ponder didn't try often last year. The second-year quarterback admits he didn't do well throwing the deep ball last year. Ponder didn...
Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton is apologizing for being arrested for DUI last weekend.
Felton apologized on Wednesday at an optional practice, four days after Eden Prairie police arrested him on suspicion of driving while impaired and refusing to take a chemical test.
Felton was contrite on Wednesday, saying he regretted bringing some negative attention to his new team...
In an interview with the Minnesota Star-Tribune, the Vikings’ Adrian Peterson said he is “locked in” on a week 1 return and can’t “even entertain” the possibility of not being out there week 1. A return to the football field roughly 9 months after tearing his ACL seems ridiculous, but remember Wes Welker did it in even less time and Adrian Peterson is simply a physical...
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin was back on the practice field on Tuesday for the first time this offseason after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery.
Harvin indicated that he feels great, even though his shoulder is a little sore, which is expected.
If the Vikings offense is going to have a strong season in 2012, they’re going to need Harvin to stay healthy.
This must be something that only happens to members of organizations in the NFC North. Over the weekend, Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton was nabbed for a DUI. But this wasn’t your run of the mill DUI that professional athletes get. Heck, he wasn’t even well over the speed limit. He wasn’t even moving. He [...]
Percy Harvin did not attend Wednesday’s voluntary practice with the Vikings, but Leslie Frazier said he didn’t think it was related to the shoulder.
New Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson displayed speed, hands and leaping ability on a highlight play that had teammates cheering.
Jerome Simpson wasn’t the most reliable receiver last year, but his catch in Wednesday’s practice showed his impressive athleticism. Simpson has what the Vikings need, but his performance last year compared to Vikings receivers is an interesting and surprising dichotomy. Plus, another receiver showing well, one that is sitting out and other notes from Wednesday.
We have been through this with Favre. Hell I’m still not over it. Not even close. At least Wisconsin is not the only NFL state with some QB issues. We bring you some fans dealing with the loss of Peyton and Tebow. It’s tough. I know. Been there.
The Brett Favre, "I used to Know"...
Wonderful, just wonderful parody here folks.
