Taking Bad Schotz:
Let me preface this article by saying that I’ve always been a big fan of Donovan McNabb. I have always admired his heart and his tendency to keep his head up amidst some pretty brutal criticism from those ruthless Eagles fans. Still, never once in my career did I consider McNabb to be a future hall of famer. With the lack of interest in McNabb thus far in free agency, it appears that McNabb will have to begin his five year wait for Hall of Fame consideration. McNabb seems to be in the minority in the sense that he believes he belongs in Canton.
In an online interview for Bar Fly last week, McNabb was asked his opinion on the matter. His response? “Absolutely.” McNabb went on to explain. “See, one thing that people don’t realize — I never played the game to make it to the Hall of Fame. I played the game because I love it. I played the game to win. I’m a competitor. When I step out on that field, I feel like I’m the best player on the field. Even these last two years, when people may ...

AROUND THE WEB
Good news for Vikes fans, as their all-world tailback looks to be on the road to recovery after he was able to beat a few of his teammates in a round of winds sprints.
Simpson will miss 3 games with suspension for getting arrested for marijuana, but he was a solid #2 receiver in Cincinnati last year with 50 catches for 725 yards and 4 touchdowns. I mentioned this when I mocked Matt Kalil to the Vikings over Morris Claiborne. The Vikings priority of this year (since they aren’t going to win a lot of games no matter what) should be to figure...

Matt Kalil to Minnesota Vikings: Key to Future Fortress
Whether you like the move or not, last season the Vikings established Christian Ponder as their starting quarterback.
Having Adrian Peterson is a plus, but it is not enough. Percy Harvin is a capable receiver, but also not enough.
With glaring weaknesses at wide receiver and corner, followed by a need to improve the protection...
Matt Peterson tracks the offseason needs of every team in the league. Today’s franchise, the Minnesota Vikings [full archive here].
Season Recap: After an offseason trade for Donovan McNabb, there was hope McNabb had enough in the tank to take the team to the playoffs. Well, his year in Washington proved to be no fluke as he led the team to a 1-5 record to start the season. Rookie...
Keep an eye on Mitchell Schwartz to be drafted somewhere on Day 2. Schwartz is the brother of Geoff Schwartz who is an Offensive Lineman for the Vikings. Some have going to the Giants in the Second Round with pick number #63.
After passing on Morris Claiborne in favor of Matt Kalil in the first round, one of the first things that was discussed was when the Vikings truly planned on taking a cornerback.
Despite moving back into the first round, Minnesota still declined to take a safety. Instead, they selected Notre Dame safety Harrison Smith with the 29th pick.

After creating much drama over the past few days, the Vikings end up selecting the guy we assumed they had targeted all along. I was worried about this franchise for awhile there when they were reportedly considering Claiborne, but they made the right choice.
After rolling the dice on Christian Ponder last year, they absolutely had to address the offensive line in this draft (especially...
Minnesota Vikings practice squad RB Caleb King has been accused of beating the living s**t out of a guy for comparing him to Eddie Murphy at a birthday party. I’ve got to give it to King. He doesn’t look like Eddie Murphy at all. If I were Caleb King, I probably would have beat the s**t out of the guy too.
But I’m an asshole.
According to a tweet posted by Paul Blume:
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman hinted at possibly trading back into the first round while discussing the earlier pick of Matt Kalil and he did just that.
After taking Kalil, the Southern California left tackle following an earlier trade, Spielman added another first-round pick in Thursday's NFL draft by trading with the Baltimore Ravens...
