Naufahu Tahi re-signs with Vikings

In some cities, the 12th man is the fans.  In Minnesota, he’s fullback Naufahu Tahi.

Unfortunately.

Tahi will be sticking around for at least another year.  The team announced that he has signed his restricted free agent tender.

Tahi has served the past two years as the lead blocker for tailback Adrian Peterson.

  1. I always kinda thought we didn’t worry about having a crappy FB because we had 2 good HBs… I mean I realize their positions are different, but for some reason it just made sense.
    Maybe the Vikings should think about pursuing a better FB?

  2. Look out….here comes a blitzing linebacker that wasn’t picked up…OHHHH NOOOOOO….FUMBLE!

  3. Darn Mr. whiff is back. Adrian did a lot better before Tahi’s arrival.
    The only good thing is when Peterson fumbled the ball forward, Tahi was already on the ground waiting for it.

  4. 3 months later, and that whole fiasco still stings….thanks for rubbing more salt in the wound Florio….

    Good one. LMAO.

  6. Its unfair to pin the 12th man on Tahi, even the resident genius, (there is a village somewhere in Minnesota missing its idiot) the alleged head coach (reporting directly to BrINT Favre) Col Klink admitted that he sent Tahi into the huddle. How was Tahi to know that there were already 11 men in there, its not like the Vikings just took a time out, oh wait, they did, never mind.

  7. I hate when people try to blame Tahi for being the 12th man. While he was the odd man out, that’s all on the coaches…not him.

  8. D-BAG THE DOME IS THE 12TH MAN YOU EVER BEEN IN THE DOME DURING A VIKINGS GAME? FLORIO IS A D-BAG-1 OF THE LOUDEST PLACES TO PLAY

  9. Thanks for the NFC Championship dig, Florio. As if it’s not tough enough to move on as it is…

  10. 12 men in the huddle AFTER a timeout. Priceless!! The Vikings can find a way to f#ck anything up.

  11. tahi is one of the poorest FBs that i have seen and i think it is no coincidence that the one year AD had bad ass tony richardson blocking for him was his most dominant in my opinion.

  12. LMAO!!!! Just though of the Paul Allen skit once again…..
    Better luck next year Queen fans!

  13. It could have been a tight end, wr, or fullback that was the player not in the package that Bevell/Chilly called for. Did I miss a story or is there some reason why Tahi is figured as “that guy”? Is it just because he sucks?
    In any case, the Vikings don’t use a fullback that often and probably figure they just as well use one that is familiar with the system. Probably got him cheap. You get what you pay for and the Vikes don’t use FB enough to pay for a good one.
    I mean, you can’t be awesome at ALL your positions although the Vikings offense does come close to it.

  14. I wouldn’t blame Tahi, I mean JUDAS did call an illegal (back to back) timeout just prior to the 12-man-in-the-huddle penalty.
    Although, if the penalty was 15 yards, the biggest QUEEN of them all may not have thrown his latest year-killing pick, as Minnesota would’ve undoubtedly called a different play (man, I love listening to the Minnesota radio address of that pick – AMAZING – and it never gets old).
    Brett Favre, most career-ending interceptions in NFL history.

  15. And for all you Minnesotan Scandinavian freaks:
    Your G.E.D. just called, it wants you to go back to high school, and finish your degree.

  16. Gregjennings85- I’d like to see things from your point of view but I can’t seem to get my head that far up my ass.

    #1: that is even dumber than Costanzas “jerk store” line on Seinfeld.
    #2 You don’t get a high school “degree” ,you get a diploma!
    Craig, Craig, Craig, that was an absolute turd of a post.
    But, then again, it’s getting to be a habit with you.

    There is only one ending to your career.
    If he retires and comes back to the jets, it’s still the same career.
    Do yourself a favor and stop posting.
    Your ignorance shows everytime you do.
    You’d think if that after embarassing yourself countless times, you’d leave on your own.

  20. Tahi sucks. Im a huge vikings fan, but Tony Richardson was there A.D. rookie year and was a way better FB. They should have Kleinsasser be the lead to pave the way for 28. Tahi might be the 30th best FB if the Nfl. Not sayin much
