Section 133, Row 5. Basically on the 45 yard line, right behind the visitor's bench.

Looking to get $100 for the pair. Taking a hit, as we paid $260 for them.

Hit me up if you are interested.
If I didn't have to work on Friday night, I totally would take you up on that offer since I'm heading to the cities on Saturday. If anything changes I will be sure to let you know...I'm sure we can meet up somewhere in the cities as well.

Vikings 'debating' using Cordarrelle Patterson in return game

Quote:
MANKATO, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings first-round pick Cordarrelle Patterson is forty pounds heavier and three inches taller than former Vikings receiver Percy Harvin, yet they've been compared as similar players.

The comparison is a testament to Patterson's agility and ability to accelerate after changing directions on a dime, but it's not a forgone conclusion that Patterson replaces Harvin as the team's dynamic retuner -- or even if he gets a chance to do so.

"We want to take a look at Stephen Burton a little bit. We're probably going to give Bobby Felder a chance. We're debating about whether or not we want [Cordarrelle] Patterson to have a chance to do it as well," Frazier said Monday. "Jarius Wright may get an opportunity. So we have a few candidates to potentially take a look at and we'll just see how it goes as the game unfolds."

The carousel of returners will get its first test during Friday's preseason opener, but Frazier said the debate is about whether to give Patterson a chance. The Vikings may want another guy to step up and let Patterson focus on the playbook and emerge as a receiving threat.

"I really don't know," Patterson said after Tuesday's walkthrough. "I'm just out here trying to compete. At [the University of] Tennessee, that was D-I, this is the NFL, everything out here is a lot faster, a lot better. We'll see what happens."

Patterson dazzled crowds in his one year of D-I football with a kick return and punt return for touchdowns -- only the second player in UT history to do so.

If the turntable of Burton, Felder and Wright don't get it done, the Vikings may have to end the debate and try their dynamic rookie at the goal line.

"The preseason games are huge for us," Special teams coach Mike Priefer said.
Definitely something interesting to watch for this Friday Night. Looks like there is quite the competition for kick returning duties. Maybe this means Patterson is going to play a larger role in the offense?

Pretty excited for the game tonight. Sadly I'll be away from TV, but the 'ol DVR should save me so I can watch it when I get back late tonight. Skol.

According to Andrew Krammer of espn1500.com Jared Allen, Xavier Rhodes, Desmond Bishop and AJ Jefferson will not play tonight due to minor injuries. Adrian Peterson also is 99% unlikely to play as well.

I hope Ponder plays at least a quarter tonight and I'm really excited to see the offense.

I wish we could. I'd be happy with Jennings/Patterson/Wright as our 3 receivers and then Simpson has the 4th spot.

Im not a big fan of only playing Ponder 1 series especially after coming off an INT even tho it wasn't entirely his fault. I would have liked to see him go back out there for another series and have another go at it.

Also, I was liking the stream I had in the beginning because I had the Vikings cast then they switched now I keep hearing all about the Texans.

I thought Patterson looked good. Nice return to start the game and some good catches down the field.

everyone is jizzing their pants about how good of a game Cassel had on Friday night. Don't care. He was a former pro bowl QB playing against scrubs. He's always going to look good.

Media, get it out of your head that this team has declared Ponder as the starter going into the season. There is no QB controversy here.

And he STILL threw a bad pick. Reading the FB comments on the Vikings page afterwards was so cringeworthy. Reminds me of the Joe Webb bandwagon from last season.

I refuse to read anything from nfl.com or vikings.com in their comment section. Most of those fans are so far away from reality at times. Cassel will be our back up and always should have been a back up. He had Randy Moss in New England in his only good year. We all know how Randy Moss can make a look QB look great. Once he left, Daunte Culpepper's career went down quick.

Vikings' stadium deal on hold

Consider the pause in momentum a self-inflicted wound, of sorts. With groundbreaking on a new Minnesota Vikings stadium only weeks away, final approval of key development agreements has been put on hold to allow the state to conduct a more extensive background investigation into the team's owners. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, the public body overseeing the nearly $1 billion project, said Tuesday that it has retained Peter Carter of the Dorsey & Whitney law firm to lead a "due diligence" review of Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and his family's real estate business. Carter has tried cases involving racketeering and performed similar investigations for some of the nation's largest firms.

I'll be going to the game tonight and I just recently purchased a very nice camera so I should have some good photos from tonight for you guys. I can't wait to see them live again even if its preseason.

This argument really could go both ways. A good WR could make a QB look really good, or a really good QB, like Aaron Rodgers/ Brett Favre, could make a WR like Greg Jennings look good. We'll see which way it goes.

This is bologna. This happened 20 years ago and it JUST surfaced as they were trying to get the stadium approved. I think they need to take this way less seriously and just get the deal done. I wouldn't be surprised if Zygi packs up the team and moves somewhere else if this gets delayed another year.

Of course, the implication of this is that, before the lawsuit news, the politicians had planned to just sign the contract without reading it.
