QB Mike McMahon will not play on Thursday.
A lot of speculation lately on the WR position and whether or not the team was going to look at bringing in Deion Branch of the New England Patriots. Well today the team had a mystery WR working out on the side, prompting Marcus Robinson to joke about getting cut. Coach Childress would not identify the player, so we'll have to wait and see if a roster move is made.

Sounds strange, couldnt it just be Gordon or Kasper or Davis?!

Vikings | Davis returns to practice

Mark Craig and Kevin Seifert, of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, reports WR Josh Davis (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 28.

It must be someone that was just cut this week. If it was someone from another team there should be some news of it!

Maybe the return of Jeff George to the league has sparked a flame with some older players....





Could it be Chris Carter?..... :o

I heard negotiations were underway to bring Fran Tarkenton and Bob Griese in for the 3rd and 4th stringers.
Not sure if it's true though.

So how exactly do you work out a mystery WR without anyone knowing who he is ? The Vikes going to smuggle someone into Winter Park under a blanket ? ::)

The only question is how quickly could a new WR fit into the scheme - unless we pick up someone who has maybe worked with Childress before - if so who could that be ?

Maybe its just some Philly Practice Squader.. who got cut or something?.. did the Eagles cut some WR this weekend?

If Childress somehow gets Branh, it would go along way for me to forgive him for letting a future hall of fame QB go, and one of the worst drafts Ive seen....

Guys and Gals, I may be way off here but what if it were T-Jack doing a little WR.
This is something I think they can put in their offense.
Something like Randle El was with Pitt except for it's the other way around.
Just a thought anyway.
He is a good athelete and he has speed.
I'm not sure about his hands but I'm sure they are fine too.
Why not?

As long as it's not Keenan Howry, this mystery receiver is fine with me. T-Jack in as a WR would be hilarious, interesting, and ingenious.

The future hall of famer for the 10 thousandth time posted on PPO, forced his way out of Minnesota and let's not start a long debate about it!
1 more point on that subject, did you hear that Daunte went up and thanked the guy from Carolina that tore up his knee last year because it got him out of Minnesota?
So let's put the blame where it really belongs with Daunte!


And secondly the worst draft ever!

Greenway: hurt hard to say where this goes.

Griffin:
looks really good for a rookie and could be a great player in a few years.

Cook:
it will take 3 to 4 years to tell how good an O-lineman is.

T-Jack: looks like he has the tools and the brain to match (something Daunte lacked) and will be interesting to see how this works out.

Ray Edwards:
has been a great surprise and most experts concidered him 1st round talent but because of trouble with coaches dropped to 4th round.
Has the talent and could be a steal if mentally he stays together.

Greg Blue:
is blowing people up with his tackles and has a chance to be on the Vikes for awhile.


The worst draft ever?


Lets look a couple from a few years ago.

2000

1) Chris Hovan
2) Fred Robbins
2) Mike Boreau
3) Doug Chapman
4) Antonio Wilson
4) Tyrone Carter
5) Troy Walters
7) Mike Malano
7) Giles Core
7) Lewis Kelly

10 players draft not 1 on the Viking anymore.





2001

1) Michael Bennet
2) Willie Howard
3) Eric Kelly
3) Brook Williams
4) Shaun Worthen
4) Cedric James
5) Patrick Chulwurah
6) Carey scott
7) Brian Crowford

9 plays drafted not 1 on the Vikes anymore.




Worse than these drafts?
I don't think so!

What about Artis Hicks?
I think he's been a fine pick up.
I do agree about McMahon so far.
Not looking good at all.

I wish when people post they learn about the factors that go with situations.
Ignorant statements don't add to the conversations except for avoiding the real topic.

No response at least try and back up your position and statements.

For some reason you blame Childress for something (Corey Chavous) and I don't understand you negative attitude towards the Vikings and every move they make, but if you are going to post things about what they do then at least back them up.

I think you are mad because he didn't bring Chavous back well if you remember Chavous said he didn't want to play here and it was Tice that didn't give him a long term contract not Childress so blame the right guy.

The "mystery" WR was Derrick Hamilton, 24, formerly of the 49ers.

Here's his bio from Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derrick_Hamilton
"Hamilton never caught a pass in his time with the 49ers and played in only the final two games of his rookie season (2004). Hamilton tore a ligament in his left knee during a summer workout and did not play a down in his second year in the NFL (2005).

While supposedly nursing his damaged knee, Hamilton did not participate in summer training activities. During this time, he was seen dunking in a charity basketball game. Early in training camp, Hamilton injured his hamstring and barely participated in workouts.

On August 11, 2006, the one time Clemson standout and 77th overall draft choice (who left school early to enter the draft as a junior) was quietly waived by his team without ever catching a single pass."

Vikings | Team may be interested in Pinkston
Wed, 30 Aug 2006 09:43:25 -0700

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports there figures to be a handful of teams with varying degrees of interest in free agent WR Todd Pinkston (Eagles). One of those teams could be the Minnesota Vikings, who could use a veteran wide receiver to augment their current corps. Vikings head coach Brad Childress is the former offensive coordinator of the Eagles and is familiar with Pinkston's history. When Pinkston's name was put up for trade, three teams had indicated an interest in him to agent Joel Segal. What most teams will have to determine in considering Pinkston is the status of his health.

I'm surprised that the Vikings show an interest in McMahon.
He has struggled for the last few years and "struggled" is an understatement.


There are a lot of things I don't understand though....like Jeff George back to the NFL?
There has to be young talent coming out of some college somewhere that is better than these two. There just has to be...

childress will probably sign Pinkston and Koy Detmer just cause he is an idiot and has to sign all the former eagles

DERRICK HAMILTON SUCKS

DaVizzles makes a good point. Coaches of previous teams bring the players they previously knew and in many cases want to make a point that he was "my guy" and he's better now at my new team because of me, etc.

Refer to Dick Vermeil and Trent Green with the Rams.
Green was "Vermeil's QB" and Vermeil openly wept when Green was injured and he had "to make do" with Kurt Warner until Warner became the MVP and won the Super Bowl (Vermeil cried openly again but this time in joy).
Exit Vermeil to Kansas City and who ended up being his QB and yes, no Super Bowl?

DaVizzles' "good point" is almost lost in the stupidity of the "childress...just cause he is an idiot and has to sign all the former eagles" comment.

It's obvious that coaches like to sign players with which they are familiar.
In many cases, they know how they will react at game time and the quality of their impact on the team.
A MUCH better example would be Bill Parcells and certain players over the years like Bryan Cox, Maurice Carthon, etc.

With that being said, why would Childress sign a QB in a WCO offense when he knows he has only completed 44.5% of his passes.

The performance quality of the QB is what is what I question here.

WaywardHoosier
08-31-2006, 09:13 AM
Agreed.
I have no idea if Childress will be a good head coach until we see his teams's performance over the upcoming years.
Mike McMahon has struggled for several years now and does not appear to be able to lead the Vikings in a winning direction.

I'm surprised with the interest in him.
