Happy days... the Vikes needed/need impact WRs desperately!


While the money is a bit high at $9M/yr, only $18M of it is guaranteed and it's still a lot less than what Harvin was rumored to have wanted from the Vikes.

Now the Vikes need to use one of their 1st rounders in the draft to pick the best available WR.

I hate the Vikings. And it was really stupid of them to spend this much money on a guy who was banged up last year, and even a bit the year before that. Jennings is a great receiver but he's entering the downside of his career. I grew up in Vikings-land and moves like this always made me scratch my head.

If it weren't for the whiny Crykings we wouldn't have had this phony Bountygate mess. I hate hate hate the Crykings.

Are you a Vikings fan, too? After all their whining about us? Geez dude, I feel betrayed and I don't even know you. lol

I've never hidden that sweet nugget of information about myself... yeah, I'm definitely a Vikings fan, but not nearly as much as I'm a Saints fan.

I do root for the Saints when the two play against each other, and naturally I don't agree with the criticism from their camp targeted at the Saints - the fans were just disappointed and that logically led to some questionable statements on their part but that's no different from any other fan base.

That's the beauty of B&G ... despite Finny's shortcomings as a Minnesota Vikings & San Jose Sharks supporter, :mrgreen:, there's still common ground to be found in New Orleans, :lol: ... (you know you're da' man, FS, :wink:.)

But, "Ouch", this signing has to hurt for Green Bay & what a brilliant move by Minnesota to fill the void left by Harvin's departing. I honestly thought they were gonna' take care of that in the draft. I am on record in another thread as picking Minnesota to win the NFC North next season; with moves like this, they certainly don't seem like they're going to disappoint, :).

NFC North is gonna' be a m'fer next year ... even the Lions are making some good moves, :mrgreen:.

Ah. I never noticed that tidbit about you. I find it impossible to root for any other team, except when I need some team to win a game to help the Saints.

About other Vikings fans though, I understand them being disappointed, but I wouldn't say they acted like any other fanbase. It's going on 4 years since that NFC title game, and they still say we cheated. I don't see any other fanbase lamenting one game so much, from that long ago. Time for them to get over it.

Well, most of them are over it, it's just the few people who can't seem to get past it. But if you go to one of their message boards you'll see that people aren't talking about that game anymore and have moved on.

And I do think that if the Saints hadn't gotten their ring afterwards - some Saints' fans would still be talking about how the Bears sabotaged the playing surface at Soldier Field in that NFC title game... don't you? ;-)
