This kind of "high school" level game plan the vikings think will somehow give them an edge in Sunday's game never works!!! This does nothing but expose how clueless the vikings coaching staff really is. What a joke!!!

Yeah, prplstooge, this never works. Like when the Patriots signed Danny Woodhead, got all the information they could from him, then beat the Jets 45-3. Any information is good information. They're not building a game plan around what AJ knows. They're simply getting as much extra info as possible. No knowledge is bad knowledge.

@thatissomebs - If you have a coaching staff that is a professional level staff and knows what they are doing week to week and the team has the player talent to pull off an actual thought out game plan then maybe this "high school level" espionage BS plan may help but the vikings have niether!!!

So what you are saying stooge is if ANY team can get a look inside an opossing teams playbook (by word of mouth through a former player), they should pass? Why do you think teams review film of other teams? TO GET INSIDE THEIR PLAYBOOK! Tendencies, schemes etc... They are building the game plan AROUND the intel.

Also, the Vikes didn't just sign him off the street because he once played for Arizona. This was a trade a few months ago. You honestly believe a team would waste a roster spot for a week 7 game?
