Plus, Leslie Frazier talked about the toll the season has taken on him and coordinators discussed several different players.

McNabb stiffs charity on $5,000 donation

Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb is playing the role of Scrooge heading into the holiday weekend, stiffing former teammate, Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, on a $5,000 donation to Kick For A Cure, a charity that supports people with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. McNabb agreed to make the donation to the organization, which Kluwe is involved with, after the punter gave...

Stunning Revelation: Donovan McNabb Sucked for the Vikings

Now is the time of the year for giving. And brotherhood. And wishing for peace on earth. And, if you’re the Vikings, throwing your ex-teammates under the bus. Yes the anonymous sources are at it again (those guys must have Tom Pelissero on speed-dial). This time they’re talking about Donovan McNabb. Pelissero reveals in his newest “Who to Blame for 2011″ piece the full extent...

Warcraft Wednesday: The NFL's Best Punter is Chris Kluwe, Says Chris Kluwe

Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is the best. He's the best punter in the game, the best video gamer on the team, the best interview in the state, and the best husband to his children. I'm assuming. He's also, in most of these cases, the only person he knows that does many of these things (joke about him not fathering his children correctly is extremely inappropriate...

Chris Kluwe Still Waiting on Donovan McNabb to Pay for Jersey Number

In retrospect, Chris Kluwe should have never given his No. 5 jersey to Donovan McNabb. For starters, McNabb was absolutely no help to the Vikings. He quickly became a bench-warmer in Minnesota and Kluwe got on the field more regularly than he did. In addition, McNabb has not held up his side of the bargain to this point. As you may remember, McNabb was supposed to mention Kluwe...

Kluwe says McNabb hasn’t made promised donation to charity

When Donnovan McNabb joined the Vikings, punter Chris Kluwe agreed to give up his No. 5 jersey, on a few conditions. Kluwe is one of the NFL’s freest spirits, so it’s no surprise that a couple of those conditions were off the wall: One was that McNabb had to buy him an ice cream cone.…

Kluwe laments the Christmastime birthday

Vikings punter Chris Kluwe recalls the feeling of his youth about having a birthday on Christmas Eve. Plus, a look at Friday’s injury report.

Donovan McNabb never paid punter for wearing his No. 5 jersey

When Donovan McNabb signed with the Minnesota Vikings, he asked longtime punter Chris Kluwe if he could take his No. 5 jersey. McNabb had worn the number since college and wanted to continue the tradition. Kluwe said yes, with some strings attached. The punter would give McNabb the number he had worn in Minnesota since 2005 provided McNabb did a few things for it. The quarterback...

McNabb, not Musgrave, becomes the Minnesota scapegoat

So with the Vikings closing in on a 2-14 finish and no obvious changes planned at head coach or on the offensive side of the ball (adjustments on defense could be coming), someone has to catch blame for this Stecklish debacle. And that someone is Donovan McNabb. Though the headline from Tom Pelissero’s latest item…

We’ve Met Before: Vikings at Redskins

Series: Redskins lead 11-9 Last Meeting(s): When Minnesota beat Washington 17-13 last season, then-interim head coach Leslie Frazier (coaching his first game) should have taken away only one thing: Donovan McNabb has become a very ineffective quarterback. McNabb was 21-35 with a touchdown and an interception, but the Redskins had numerous easy third down-conversions fall to the ground...

Syracuse Alumni Bank Robber

There is a bank robber running around upstate New York. Here is the description provided to the media: Witnesses described the man as 6 feet 2 inches to 6-feet 3 inches tall with a lean or athletic build. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the words “Syracuse Alumni” written across the front. My guess is this is an out of work Donovan McNabb. [via]

Paid leave for Cook not popular with Vikings players

We’ve written before about the dysfunction in Minnesota this season. Defensive players are ignoring coaches. The front office and coach Leslie Frazier disagreed on Donovan McNabb. Getting rid of Brad Childress has reduced drama, but seemingly only pushed it under the surface. The latest issue to bubble up: Players and possibly Frazier weren’t happy about…
