Yes first Vikings black out in over 100 games! Its a good thing I will be in Sconni throwing lead at deer grin.gif. What is the milage for black outs? I am assuming it will be aird in Northern Wisconsin! Boy am I going to hear it again at the bars from those cheeseheads how bad the Vikings are smirk.gif.

At least they said its not real bad, they said 1 game atleast confused.gif

I think I want to throw up after hearing that.... The only hope for the Vikings better be laid up until he can safely get on the field again (not another Liriano situation) or I will personally campaign to get Chilly fired!

Would you like me to start so you can get used to it? grin.gif (Just kidding.)

Even though I'm a Packer fan, I don't like seeing someone of his caliber getting injured, he's a fun player to watch.

4WE, what part of Wisconsin are you going to be hunting? If you're going to be near Hayward, either Anglers (downtown Hayward) or Cruise Inn should have the game on. Also, 101.1, a radio station in Hayward, carries the Vikings.

I am west of Hayward about 20 miles, inbetween Minong and Trego. I knew a radio station carried the game, but know I dont have to search for it, thanks!

I'm with you. There is no way on God's green earth that Peterson's torn ligament will be healed in a week or two. NO WAY. If Chili rushes him back before he's 100%, it's a heck of a gamble.

I can see where both Chili and Peterson want him on the field. Chili's job is likely on the line (I HOPE SO!), and Peterson may lose out on some significant performance bonus money. However, as a fan I believe risking Peterson's career in order to finish 5-11 instead of 3-13 is rediculous.

Shut Peterson down for the rest of the season. Bring him back next year when we have a quarterback who can throw the ball straight and a coach who knows how to develop a game plan and manage a game! (It doesn't hurt to dream, anyway.)

They've been conservative with Peterson all season up until the last couple of weeks. I can't see them not being conservative with their approach to his injury.

From the Nation's Most Reputable News Source.

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN—Responding to speculation that Adrian Peterson's sprained knee may be the result of overusing the talented rookie, Vikings head coach Brad Childress released a statement Monday defending his practice of using the superstar rookie on rushing plays, passing plays, kickoff returns, punt returns, movie returns, grocery runs, and home repairs. "Adrian is a great young talent, and the team doctors say he can still do a lot for this team, both on the field and around my house," Childress said of the multi-tasking back who currently leads the league in yards raked. "Naturally, situations will dictate how he's used, but you can expect to see him playing an increased role around my household. Any coach in this league would love to have a player who can put an entire team or bedroom set on his back and carry them into the postseason or attic." Peterson, who spent Tuesday's practice washing Childress' car at a Minnetonka self-service car wash, said that his injured knee wouldn't affect his aggressive cleaning style.

Best thing the Vikes could do at this point is sit AP until next year. Unfortunately, because of Childress's extremely gargantuan ego and self preservation tactics, he'll probably make him play, just to selfishly attempt to save his job as a head coach in the NFL.

He knows it, the fans know it, and the entire league knows it, that he is failing horribly. He has no business coaching..

Sorry about the rant, but why sacrifice such a natural talent, just to stroke your own agenda?

As a long time fan, I am sick and tired of the revolving door in the Vikes when it comes to coaches.. We need consistency..

So should we "settle in" with chilly, or keep looking for the "right" coach?

I don't think Chilly is the wrong coach.

And, do you really think Adrian would agree to sit him out until next year? No way!

MN sure likes to whine about their coaches. They all can't be Bud Grant. Everyone sitting at home thinks they would be a better coach.

Is he a great coach? No. Is he a bad coach? No. Get rid of him and start all over again...that is what we want....

It is time to build this team. The quarterback is #1. Receivers, #2.
