"If you were allowed to enter the Vikings' draft room, I'm sure Kalil was at the top of their board from almost Day 1." Actually, Sid knows this for a fact being how he accidentally walked into the Vikings' draft room right before the Spielman presser thinking that it was a restroom.

I always enjoy Sid's columns and admire how active and involved he is.

Typical Sid smoke blowing-all he does is parrot out the PR the coaches and management of these loser teams give him. A useful idiot

Pete Carroll has such a great football mind. We should listen to everything he says. I am surprised he didn't say that the Vikings 'jerked Kalil around', though.

I always admire Sid's laughably unprofessional behavior at press conferences.

Should have taken Claiborne!!! The vikings defensive backfield is completely void talent and will certainly be the reason for yet another last place NFC North finish!!! Frazier has yet to defeat a NFC North opponent in his year and a half stint as head coach because Stafford, Cutler and Rodgers feast on his pathetic defensive backfield and it will no doubt continue!!!

I will never forget when Spielman signed QB Donovan McNabb before training camp last season. He then proceeded to tell all us purple homers that he was still a "playmaker" and how he had "alot: of football left in him, Sid went on to spew the SAME nonsense. We all know how that "genius" of a free agency signing turned out for the purple!!! This current viking's management and coaching staff are total amateurs and their New Jersey owners are the ring leaders of this clown circus. Last year's 3-13 finish will be viewed as a success after this upcoming season is over!!!
