The football coach looked healthier when he stopped by his office, but he first needs to keep obeying his doctors.

God Bless you Sid Hartman. You are a warrior. Lots of good memories through the years. My thoughts; AP likes every starting QB this year for the team...I guess that is a good team attitude to have. Glad he is not questioning each move made on this roller coaster ride. Out of all respect for Jerry Kill, he's had a great career, but he should step down for his family. It's only a game.

Sure, let kill coach on Saturday only to find out the stress of this game will only put him down again. He is to high strung of coach to be putting his body through this weekly.

Thanks for the update Sid and I agree with the first poster, you have been a great warrior for Minnesota sports. Jerry Kill is a good man dealing with a very difficult issue. I think I speak for many when I say we wish him well. A Rodents win would be a big upset against Nebraska, but in the realm of college football it is a possibility. The possibility of the leaderless Vikings upsetting the Packers? Well..

Coach Kill previously said that he understood that he could not continue to coach if he wasn't able to be on the sideline. Enough said about that right there. Chad Greenway is the quietest "great" linebacker I have ever seen. All of the former Vikings greats that Sid listed were game changers. I have never felt that Greenway has been a game changer - just a serviceable NFL linebacker.

Sid, did you see Scherels drop a pick six that could have changed the game? How many interceptions does the entire cornerback corps have this season? 0 just like Scherels

If this is "just a game" then Kill should continue to coach. We are just where we should be and in a year or two you will see. This is not just more "wait till next year talk."

The Gophers and the Vikings may be both playing at home this weekend but I doubt either will have a home field "advantage".

MVP for the Vikings in the Giants game?!?! There was no one deserving of that award. I hope they didn't waste any Wilf $ giving out game balls for that one.
