As Simpson kangarooed around? How do you do that exactly? Does that behavior come from smoking a little grass? Then again maybe we can say he was kangarooing around because he isn't respected for some reason? Just a kangaroo pot smoker, right?

When does Piggy start serving his time?? Does that mean the Vicks will eventually end up in a legal receivership?? Who pays for the "playpen" now that pull tabs don't pull their weight?? Seems to be a lot of questions hanging in the air this time of year...

Simpson is talented! I expect a good season out of him. And anyone who wants to bag on him, for smoking grass should realize probably more than half of the NFL does! But this offense needs to drop the play of passing down the sideline to Simpson. Maybe it works in practice, but it NEVER works in the games. Ponder simply can't make that throw. Ponder can't hit a small window if his life depended on it.

They said the exact same things about Bernard Berrian when they tried to convince us purple homers that he was not a bust!!! Simpson has NEVER lived up to the hype and he never will!!! He and the vikings always have an excuse as to why he has not performed just like the bengals did before they outright cut him.

@purplegoon: Simpson was not cut by the Bengals. He was a free-agent and drew interest from Vikings, Rams, and even Bengals considered resigning him -- the 4-game suspension was the wrinkle teams had to overcome

Simpson has infinitely more talent than Bernard 'Vanishing Act' Berrian.
