Just reported on KFAN, Ciatrick Fason activated and Artose Pinner de-activated due to bad ST plays..

Actually Fason was an awesome specialteamer last season, i remember him providing some key blocks on returns..

I remember a different story. At least from the RB POV.

I remember him trying to pound it in from the 1 (I believe 2 or 3 times) & never got it in.

Here's his stats, which to me are far less than awesome;

If it's due to bad ST plays then fine but is it me or does it seem to awful close to a game to make a change for the reasons given?
I'm wondering if the Vikes have something up their sleeves regarding Fason - that or Pinner has made a big foul-up with Childress

Good move for Special Teams certainly.
Pinner cost us twice last week....and hasn't been stellar all year.

And that's why I said, I remember a different story of him.
At least from the RB point of view.

I was more refering to tb04512's comment of giving him some carries.

I don't remember how well he played on ST, but I do remember him playing not so well in the RB position.

Let's hope ST is were Childress keeps him.

Good, even though that block in the back on Johnson's TD was bogus, he still got called for it, and it still costed us the game.. Then he was clearly offsides on the onside kick attempt.. He costed us the game last week, along with the refs..
