There you have it, do any of us homers need any more proof that this move is a complete joke and it will certainly fail!!! If Colonel Klink, the ultimate clueless football failure is endorsing this move that makes it all obvious. Wilf and Company are done spending money and will now take it out on the fans for their failure to convince the lawmakers into approving a taxpayer funded stadium. Sorry homers but the vikings are doomed and the "purple jinx" is in full swing for the upcoming season!!!

C'mon Sid...do you really have to put both Childress AND Brewster in the same column? Most of us would be just fine if neither were mentioned ever again.

And this is from the same bone head who annointed Jackson the starter! Not sure how well McNabb will play, but I am not going to hold my breath for a miracle to happen. Oh yeah, and he is going to throw the ball to ???? Can you say cellar . . . I knew you could!

NO OTHER TEAM HAD ANY INTEREST IN McNABB, especially any team that is a legitimate playoff contender. The ONLY teams that may have had even the slightest interest in this washed up old bum would be a team like the vikings (AZ,Buf,Ten,Cle) who will not be making the playoffs and will almost certainly finish in last place in their division. This also shows that the Wilf's will NOT be going after any high priced free-agents or hiring a general manager because they will not lift a finger until we build them a 70% taxpayer funded new stadium. Enjoy the season purple homers, it's going to be a long and painful one!!!

I don't think this is a current Childress interview. It sounds in places like Sid re-worked an old interview to make it sound fresh.

If the Vikings continue to ignore their o-line problems they best sign about five more QB's because they are going to need them.

After the McNabb move by the vikings one thing is now for certain and that is that the new stadium deals is officially dead and buried. Way to go Zygi, even when the season is on summer vacation the "Purple jinx" is in play!!!
