Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying:
Valhalla, I am coming!
On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.

Lmao I forgot that guy. He was a true Pain.

Well Anyways. The Vikings cut 4 guys today since Kendrick Allen is on the IR and doesnt count against the Roster.

The 4 were Derrick Pope LB, Sean Dumford OT, Brock Pasteur OT, and Daniel Davis WR. Nothing to big. Just have to see who makes the 53 man roster. Im rooting for Erin Henderson. He has looked good in the preseason so far.

Wasn't Derrick Pope an offseason signing? I think the chances of Erin Henderson making the roster are pretty good. I remember when I wanted the Vikings to draft him in the 2nd round way back.

Yeah he was signed this offseason guess he wasnt cutting it. I never heard of the other guys. Yeah i remember draft day everytime Erin Henderson came up and we still had a pick i wanted the Vikings to take him then to find out we got him after the draft in FA Signing I was very happy. He is a FA in Madden who i pick up everytime i do a franchise with fantasy.

I did not know he was a FA in Madden. I must now pick him up. The thought of a Henderson/Henderson/Greenway LB corp makes me salivate. This may never happen but in a couple years if Erin starts playing at an EJ like level we would have a top group of LB's in the league and a great team to play with on Madden.

Yeah it would be great thing to see in a couple years. I was upset when i saw we signed Leber back when we did lol, but he has been very good for us since he came over from San Diego. Brooks Bollinger is also a free agent in Madden so If you want to pick him up lol.

I am happy trading away Tarvaris Jackson and starting my mancrush JDB at QB.

djp 08-28-2008 08:29 AM

We suck. Nobody's posting!

What's everyone expecting from tonight's game? I hope JDB can at least get some kind of rhythm going tonight. Also, I'd like to see Erin Henderson force a fumble on a hit stick.

The_Dude 08-28-2008 03:10 PM

Not really expecting much from tonight's game.

I also hope JDB gets his **** together so we can finally release Bollinger.

Let's go scrubs!!!!

Well he's gone no matter what. You wouldn't keep 4 QBs. Would you?

Na. I think what every happens tonight Bollinger is gone. I agree with everyone that JDB needs to get his stuff together and look good enough to be a 3rd stringer which shouldn't be hard. Yeah pretty much Im looking at the LB's and see how will make the team as back ups. Also Special Teams.

Barring a serious injury to JDB, I also think Bollinger is gone.

True but lets not hope that.

It's official, McKinnie suspended four games. On the StarTribune.

The Dynasty 08-29-2008 07:48 PM

This is the list of people who have been cut.

C Dan Mozes
WR Martin Nance
CB Brandon Sumrall
T Chase Johnson
TE Braden Jones
DE Chris Norwell

Im shocked about Nance not even Practice Squad. I thought he performed very well this preseason and i thought he deserved a shot. But With Berrian,Rice, Wade, Allison and Ferguson...I guess that leaves 1 person if that. So i guess Jaymar Johnson and Darius Reynaud one will be going and one will be saying. Reynaud has impressed me on his return ability.

Vikings4ever 08-29-2008 10:44 PM

Players have to clear waivers before they get added to the PS, so Nance may be headed there if another team doesn't pick him up.

Ah alright well lets hope because he was really good in preseason.

DHVF 08-30-2008 12:28 AM

I really hope Nance catches on with someone's 53 man roster. I really liked him as a prospect coming out and imo he's done nothing but succeed when given opportunities with us.

As if the first 4 games of the season weren't difficult enough....

The Dynasty 08-30-2008 12:29 PM

Well If i was childress, If Hicks start getting killed on the Left side I would put Kliensasser over there and just double team the DE. There is a Reason why we keep Kliensasser and thats because he is one hell of a blocker.

djp 08-30-2008 07:05 PM

Rufus Alexander, Jaymar Johnson gone.

Reynaud makes the team. Erin Henderson also makes it.

Nope, cut.

The team opted to stay with five wide receivers. Martin Nance, Jaymar Johnson and Darius Reynaud did some nice things, but they couldn’t stick.

Oh, the strib was saying earlier that it looked like Reynaud was gonna make it.

Allison for KR and PR then?
