Sidney Rice says "Dallas is still the destination"

As Vikings fans currently muddle through another valley in their up-and-down 2010 preseason, the man who caused the most recent wave of consternation has broken his silence regarding that abrupt decision to have surgery to repair a nagging hip injury.

Receiver Sidney Rice posted on his Twitter page moments ago, “To all my Vikes fans, hold ya head. . .  We have a great cast and Dallas is still the destination!!!”

Rice also said that he’ll provide insight tomorrow regarding his surgery and “what the deciding factor was.”

We think the deciding factor was that he didn’t want to go back to being “just a guy” in his contract year, and that he feared the hip injury would potentially cause a regression, if it were not surgically repaired.

We also think that the surgery was delayed until quarterback Brett Favre had been hog tied in Hattiesburg last week.  If Brett had known about Rice’s surgery, it would have been a lot harder to get Brett to make his way down that long driveway and go “all in” for another season.

  1. HEY NUMBNUTS, if they put you on the pup list you cant come back until after week 6 which by my math is after dallas idiot!!!

  2. The Favre theory makes sense. Outside of that, I’m officially down on Rice for not keeping the team in the loop about the injury. Supposedly they didn’t know until minicamp. In either case, I hope they stick his ass on IR so he misses the whole year. If they manage to make it to the playoffs, I’d just as soon see his replacement keep the gig all the way to the end. Thanks again, Sid.

  3. I advise him to use his thumb and buy a ticket. Sounds like he has a bad hip and no way he’s getting any more money.

  4. How did he already get tickets for the Superbowl in Dallas? That’s the only way he’s getting there.

  5. Rice will be missed but keep in mind it is usually the QB who makes the WR and the Vikings still have BF. When Tom Brady won 4 SB’s he did not have a single pro-bowl wr……peyton manning took a group of no name wr’s to the SB last year with the exception of Reggie Wayne….no one had heard of P. Garcon or A. Collie……over in Green Bay, Greg Jennings made the Pro Bowl when BF was the QB and hasn’t made it since. For fantasy football players (not packer fans who live in a fantasy world…big difference), it will recognizing who BF is going to make into a Pro-Bowler this year. Last year Harvin was ROY, Shiancoe had his career year with 12 td’s, Rice came from obscurity to become All Pro……and the common thread was……BF was the QB.

  6. He also said later…”unless that is, we have to travel to New Orleans to face the saints…in that event, we’ll get crushed and…well…that will be that…out.” Enough said…bloodbath in 15 days!!

  7. this makes no sense considering that sidney should have had the surgery six months ago and would be completely healthy by now. in fact, i’m sure it didn’t help that favre saw sidney hobbling around in uncertainty all summer. had he just gotten the surgery by now and totally healthy this summer favre may have been a little less hesitant to come. back.

  8. It does not matter because it is about the money! The Vikings could line-up Javon Walker, Robert Brooks, Sterling Sharpe, Mark Chmura, and tennis ball protected walkers and Favre was coming back once he got the money!

  9. “This isn’t to argue that Favre’s style of play doesn’t have a big downside. Anyone who’s watched the Packers the last 16 years knows he’s a bigger gambler than most. But for all the crazy plays, he’s really no more interception-prone than the average NFL quarterback. As his record bears out, the risks have come with a high reward. Favre last week topped Elway for the NFL’s record for career wins (149), and since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, he has the eighth-highest winning percentage (.621) among quarterbacks with 100 starts. Ahead of him are Montana (.713), Bradshaw (.677), Ken Stabler (.661), Young (.657), Manning (.644), Elway (.643) and Kelly (.631). Brady, who is 72-24, will be atop that list after his 100th game.”
    ———————————
    Just one snippet from Peter Doughtery of Green Bay Press-Gazette. He breaks down BF’s career and all the stats and I’m quite sure that any packer fan that read the entire article have now labled Doughtery a “Judas” too, LMAO

  10. Geez You Vikings haters are sad. Do you think that if you say they will suck ENOUGH times that you can make it happen? Why should they go 10-6….12-4….7-9? And don’t give me Favre’s getting older or the lack of respect for Klink will derail them. Those are weak and you know it. I don’t know what’s gonna happen either. But, the smart money is on, they’re gonna be pretty good again. But if it makes you feel better, ignore the fact that they have the fifth best winning percentage in the NFL, and that they’ve won the division the past two years with essentially the same team. And expect them to suck because THEY HAVE NO LOMBARDI TROPIES!! There, I said it for you. But, you can post and say it again.

  11. Favre made Rice…
    What did Rice do before Favre? Oh yea..nothing. Rice needs Favre way more than Favre needs him.
    Favre could even make that punk ass Javon Walker good..if Walker could make it to the game without getting jumped and beaten by 13 year olds.

  12. In the last Peterson post, I posted a question and not one person could answer it, so I thought I would try here. Come on all you idiots that say how crappy the Vikes will do this year. Whats the matter? Afraid I will prove you wrong? I know Florio and crew refuse to post half my comments cause I make them look like absolute fools (not that it is really all that hard).
    Ya know, everyone is acting like this is some huge thing. Nothing is really any different now than it was last year at this same time. After the 2nd preseason game, no one knew how could the Favre/Rice tandem would be. No one was sure how Harvin would play. No one really had a clue how Shiancoe would do.
    So tell me……what is so different this year from last year at this same exact time?

  13. Then he should have had the friggen surgery in May like Favre did to be ready for the season opener. I truly hope Viking fans are flooding his Twitter page with hate messages. What a worthless POS.
    And “Destination Dallas”? Not with your ass, Mr. Rice. You’ll probably be placed on IR.

  14. Sidney can definitely still make it to Dallas. I hear Southwest is giving $79 fares one way till September. Wanna get away? Book now Sidney!

  15. That is right.. .Lie to your ancient QB so he can come back to the Vikings and have no one to throw too. Good Idea…. The only way the Vikings make it to Dallas in Feb 2011 is if they by a ticket.

  16. Rice won’t have any trouble getting to Dallas – I’m sure he can afford plane tickets with his salary. He can probably even afford to fly first class.
    Since Favre’s return was “all about his teammates”, maybe he can buy Rice his tickets – you know, with all that extra money he’s getting that’s not important at all.

  17. Honestly, I can’t blame Rice for his decisions over the past two weeks. However, why he didn’t get surgery in February, I don’t know. Overall, this just sucks for the Vikings.

  18. I actually agree with you on this one Florio. Exactly what I said. If Childress didnt mind sending 3 key players after Brett in the middle of training camp then I really dont think he would have a problem with holding a surgery back a week or 2 to get to the same outcome.
    Lets be honest the Vikings would much rather have Favre at qb with Rice out to week 8 then Favre at home and Rice out to week 6. Its a no brainer. Like you said Rice wasnt setting the world on fire before Favre so theres a pretty good chance he can create another Rice out of a guy like Berrian. Or even Javon Walker seeing that Walker was only good with Favre which has been the case with Rice . Its doubtful it will happen with Walker but possible.

  19. “We also think that the surgery was delayed until quarterback Brett Favre had been hog tied in Hattiesburg last week. If Brett had known about Rice’s surgery, it would have been a lot harder to get Brett to make his way down that long driveway and go “all in” for another season.”

    Now that is just rampant speculation. You have no way of knowing whether that’s true or not.
    …You’re probably right though.

  20. JAYMAC,
    The Superbowl in in Dallas this year. That’s what Rice was referring to.
    Check your testicles.
    Florio,
    Sid waited because he everything was going well in Minicamp. He had a set-back during a practice and was planning that it would heal prior to training camp as it wasn’t digressing.
    Is it possible that both he and Childress could be telling the truth?

  21. JAYMAC –
    A) The Superbowl is in Dallas;
    B) The Vikes host Dallas in reg. season.
    Piece it together now…. slowly….
    Pretty funny you calling HIM an idiot.

  22. Sounds to me it’s more like IR is the destination.
    I hope Drew Rosenhole is happy now that he deep sixed most if not all of his season like he did that dude last year. Not gonna get a new contract by seeing 3 docs because you don’t like the opinions and want a new contract. How did Rice not know this happened last year with another one his other clients?

  23. If Rice wants to buy a ticket to the Superbowl, rumor has it that Tice has a few extra to sell him.

  24. Nosredna – The difference is this year you have no Rice and Havin’s head is a mess so your very thin at WR. Also you have a tougher schedule and everyone is going to beat up Favre because we all know he can’t take the beating he could in the past. And don’t underestimate the loss of Chester Taylor. Last year everything fell into place for the ringless Vikes and they still couldn’t get it done (as usual). This year things wont be so easy.

  25. We had an similar (possibly) situation with Birk one season. Birk had a hip injury that required surgery. He gave ownership the option. They could either rework his contract so that it was heavily front loaded and he’d play that season through the pain, potentially risking the rest of his career. His argument is if the team wanted him to risk his career to help them that season then he wanted assurance that if that caused his career to end then he’d still be set financially.
    Ownership considered this offer but decided to leave his contract and accept his having surgery. Birk had the surger and missed the season. Then he returned and played great for a few more years before going to the Ravens.
    Personally I believe Chilly and Rice’s statements that doctors said Rice could rehab without surgery and that turned out to be false. This happened with the Twins’ Pat Neshek last year. He was supposed to be able to rehab without surgery but it didn’t work. Typically rehabing without surgery is a better option long term which is one reason a lot of guys prefer that route.
    If you want to get all conspiracy theory then I’d say it is a combination. Rice thought he could rehab without surgery. Otherwise there is no reason he wouldn’t have had the surgery right after the NFC Champ game or whenever it was he hurt it. Think about it. He’d be healthy by now and out trying to earn dough. But now since that didn’t work out he probably figures that playing through the pain, even if it doesn’t outright destroy his hip, might result in him having a bad year, which in turn hurts the contract.
    But by having the surgery now maybe he joins the team late as a flash in the pan and looks good. Or maybe he misses the season and then says he’s 100 percent next year and teams look at him as having more value since his last action was good. But still even then missing a whole year with hip surgery is not going to “help” your contract situation. Anyone who says he waited this long and went last minute is for selfish contract reasons is beyond retarded.
    That would be like saying Plexico intentionally shot himself in the leg to get a better contract.

    ——————————————-
    If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and quack’s like a duck….it’s gotta be a Packer fan who can’t figure out the reference to Dallas. His post says it all about math/education in Wisconsin and that’s why everyone else is an “idiot”.

  27. I think the Vikings should cut his ass. That surgery should have been done after the NFC Championship game. Two of three doctors told him he needed surgery and he refused to listen.

  28. “So tell me……what is so different this year from(you mean than) last year at this same exact time?”
    1. There will be few suprises in the gameplan or questions of what Favre will do with his personnel, not a lot of time for any new installs when your starting QB doesn’t show up for camp.
    2. Every team has a blueprint for beating the Vikings. Hit Favre, pass over a weak secondary.
    3. Harvin has no timetable for practicing or a proper method to treat his migraines so his availibility is highly in question.
    3. The first few games won’t be glorified preseason like last year. The Saints will be coming after Favre with everything they have game 1. That means no cupcake games to warm up for the season.
    4. After Rice, there is a large dropoff at WR. Sure Favre makes WR better, but all he can do is put the pass in the right spot, he can’t catch and run for them, an aspect of Rice’s game where he excelled.
    5. Schism obviously apparent at beginning of season rather than the end. Sorry but after watching BF for the better part of two decades, he does much better with a coach who has control over him, who limits his antics and audibles.
    6. Several defensive starters coming off injury.
    7. The loss of Chester Taylor forces AP to stay on the field for nearly all offensive snaps as Toby G. isn’t ready for the 3rd down role yet.
    8. Lito Sheppard is a shadow of his former self, and Allen is very mediocre at best. They are gonna have fits covering Packers and Lions WR, TE.
    9. Favre’s ankle, as much as you would like to think is not a factor, will be a huge one. His mobility will be limited, His willingness to take sacks rather than big hits, will be increased, and his ability to avoid the rush will be diminished, if not completely void.
    10. Petersen is not the stud he was 3 years ago. He’s sat out several practices witha bad back. Teams have him figured out, and he is wearing down. Couple that with more playing time, more carries, and more scrutiny, and you have a recipe for a frustrated, overworked RB. Think Larry Johnson after 2-3 years in KC in that role.
    10 enough for ya? A lot has changed, but I would say the biggest thing is this team’s mental outlook/attitude. Too many individuals looking for glory instead of a team. Too many leaks, schisms, and egos to do anything but implode in a glorius fall from grace.

  29. How about a bigger conspiracy theory for you losers? What about the possibility that Brett was fully aware of Rice’s condition and what might happen in 2010 in regards to not be ready or able to play. So, Favre tells Vikings’ brass he wants more money to come back to a damaged offense. That would seem to coincide nicely with the Brett Favre hate.
    Seriously, I am quite confident you people give some of these players WAY too much credit for being scheming and conniving, and more importantly – intelligent. Most of these rock heads ain’t got brains enough to come outta the rain, yet they’re all suddenly sharp enough to each push their own agenda (and succeed, no less) while secretly meeting with every other player of the same ilk (as well as management) to make sure they all get their stories straight…….uh, that’s a slightly tough sell in my book.
    Where some of you people are manufactured is beyond me.

  30. My God people, do you really all think you’re funny, all posting the same “joke” over and over again?
    “Yeah, well like he’s going because he’s buying a ticket for it! *looks around* Get it? Because he’s not playing in the game? Hardy har har har! DUURRRRRRRRRRRR”
    Add to the fact that your names your posting under are the same old tired “jokes” and you’ve got one sad sight. You people aren’t football fans, you’re no different than the Tea Party hate mongers that are just out for yourselves with a message of pure hatred.
    Go away.

  31. Hauschild – While the schemeing and conniving may seem outlandish, we’re also talking about millions and millions of dollars in salaries.
    I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’….

  32. Jay Mac- Idiot was a interesting choice of words,,,,,,,,now go look in the mirror for the true meaning.
    Vikings will be an easy team to beat this year,,,,,,,count it as your bye week and get extra rest. For lions, bears and cheese wizzers two easy W’s each. Good Luck.

    ___________________________________
    But Favre waits until the last second to get his ankle done, which could’ve and should’ve been done immediately following the NFC CG, if he was going to return, OR NOT…and that’s not an issue….? Whatever. Did Harvin see any specialists in the off-season or just hit the chronic all winter?
    Can’t wait to see the locker room fights and name calling go down when the Vikes start out shitty and reporters keep pushing a wedge between Favre and Walker. This will make for good stuff.

  34. “Yeah, well like he’s going because he’s buying a ticket for it! *looks around* Get it? Because he’s not playing in the game? Hardy har har har! DUURRRRRRRRRRRR”
    ———————————————–
    No no no…not just HIM, but the VIKINGS as a whole won’t be playing in Dallas (Super Bowl XLV).

  35. I love all the speculation for the NFCN rival fans. You can speculate what ifs all day long. Here’s the facts. The Vikings have won 2 straight NFCN crowns. They made it to the NFCCG last year and basically beat up on the eventual superbowl winners. Unfortunately for them they beat themselves up as well. They still have the same team (minus Rice for half the season). What makes anyone think they will be losers? Because of the drama that the media presents? What a freaking joke.
    My advice is worry about how your own team will do against them. If you don’t think they are a superbowl ready team even without Rice you are highly mistaken.
    Oh yeah, I forgot one key thing.

    HEY NUMBNUTS, if they put you on the pup list you cant come back until after week 6 which by my math is after dallas idiot!!!
    HEY NUMBNUTS, you do realize the superbowl is in Dallas this year and that is what Rice is referring to?
    I know people already hammered him for this but I had to put in my two cents because it’s funny how one idiot calls someone else an idiot without any substantiation to it.

  36. I can’t believe there are people so ill-informed about the NFL that they believe what happens from one year to another is relatively static. How much turnover do we see from year to year among playoff teams? Half? More? Isn’t it the same with division winners?
    The overwhelming recent history of the league is that some teams spike up from the previous year and some spike down. Not many stay exactly the same. By the moronic logic that last year’s champ will be this year’s champ, every division winner would repeat, as would every playoff team and every SB champ. Clearly that is not the case.
    Vike fans, it’s not 2009 anymore. Vegas has the Vikes as 4th best in the NFC for 2010, behind Dallas, NO & GB. Lots of NFL pundits are saying the same thing. You can continue to act like it is still 2009. But that won’t change the fact that it isn’t. And it will highlight the fact that you’re ill-informed about the nature of the NFL.

  37. cusoman:
    All jokes aside. Keep your lame political views out of the discussion, that is if your talking football. Your little rant proves your no real fan rather you are talking out your ass. Peace.

  38. Shoota,
    I’m aware of the money, but money doesn’t make a guy any more capable, mentally speaking.
    I think in Rice’s case, it’s a matter of a guy not being fully cognizant of the injury, and/or brushing off advice from doctors. I doubt it had anything to do with his contract or Favre or Spielman.
    Oftentimes, people are not very bright and they make horribly poor decisions and having a million dollars in one’s mattress will never change this, as can be evidenced by the average pro athlete over the past 20 years. It really can be this simple – which makes it more frustrating, obviously.
    I’m more concerned with the fact that people are finding it increasingly easy to get by, while getting lazier and ultimately less intelligent with each passing year. Try to stop that roller coaster, old boy!

  39. all that matters is being healthy for the playoffs, this season is gonna be more relying on defense and ad plus we’ve got a healthy berrian and harvin should have a huge year but if we get sid back by wk. 8 or whatver we’ll be fine. i’m sure he’ll be back for the bears game and the home stretch.

  40. @Jaymac…
    i take it u didnt have ur morning coffee?? why so worked up?? LOL
    and YOU are the NUMBNUTS my friend as he was referring to the SUPERBOWL being played in Dallas!! duhhhhhhh
    care to issue a retraction?

  41. i think florio’s right about this being connected with rice being at the end of his contract tho, remember when birk got surgery that one year after he said pay me so i’m protected if i get hurt or i’ll get surgery?

  42. i love all this “every team has a blueprint for beating the vikes now, just hit favre” like every other team before the saints game wasn’t trying to hit favre.
    every team has a blueprint for beating the pckers now, just use a spread offense and with the pckers total lack of pass rush teams can just pass at will on the packers weak 2ndary and score 50+ pts.

  43. It’s going to be very tough for the Vikes to repeat last year and admittedly difficult to beat out the Pack for the NFCN title. Yet, other NFCN posters delight in pointing out the Vikings’ issues while refusing to look at the weaknesses of their own teams. The Lions aren’t worth talking about; the Bears have no O-line, safety and Urlacher’s already hurt; and the Pack is thin at D-line, has one pass rusher (who’s hurt), old at OT, clearly has pass defense problems, and is one Aaron Rodgers hit away from offensive oblivion. Lets just play the frigging games and then talk, or if you cheesers talk, recognize your own faults as well.

  44. “I also find it incredibly unlikely that you tools wouldn’t be doing the exact same crap in regards to ripping Favre”
    naw we might be a little pissed at first but we’d never stay hysterically angry year after year and keep claiming year after year that he’s not good anymore and he was gonna ruin the pckers and make it easier for us to beat the pckers and we definitely wouldn’t keep saying the exact same things we were already proved wrong about the year before.

  45. @Jaymac
    wow you are an idiot D.R. Universal said it all superbowl you fool, not the regular season game

  46. the strib had a good article quoting some vikes about how they used the supposed “schism” last year which never existed as extra motivation, they said it really helped them to band together and be even more motivated and cohesive. so pcker fans that love to talk about “schism” even though they’re maybe not directly responsible for the vikes success are at least partially responsible for the vikes success.

  47. Oh my God you guys, calm down. It all boils down to politics and what will impact the Vikings, as a TEAM, least negatively. It’s ALWAYS POLITICS. The complete lack of business sense by some of these idiotic comments simply amazes me. Sidney will be missed, but we’ll deal with it. Give the kid a break.

  48. The Vikings will be fine. Favre has been making good receivers better for years. Why do you think Javon Walker every caught 89 passes in one season?

  49. “4. After Rice, there is a large dropoff at WR. Sure Favre makes WR better, but all he can do is put the pass in the right spot, he can’t catch and run for them, an aspect of Rice’s game where he excelled”
    Why are you stating your opinion as fact? Rice did nothing until Favre got there. You’re very weird.

    Yeah…cuz you’re destined for greatness this year, right? And year after year? It was one flippin’ year, dumbass. This will be #2…BTW…no one cared less about the Jets fiasco.
    Nobody said he wasn’t good anymore. They were sick of his antics and sick of his untimely and all too familiar, season ending interceptions….something you’ll get sick of over there very soon.
    The very thing probably one or two guys said was the very thing that happened to you guys in the NFC GC. That is why the diva continues to spill about “No Guarantees” for the last 5 years every time there’s a mic in his face. You’ll get the picture here soon.
    If you had any sense, you’d lay a bit lower and cross your fingers…instead there’s continued spouting about how your team will own the NFC this year. It’s utterly laughable. Very few “Pecker heads” have had the audacity to claim the Pack is going to the SB this year. If they are, they’re not the brightest…yet every one of you has claimed a Viking sweep of the Pack and NFC dominance since grampa finally got his ass in camp. Saty positive.
    Drink the Kool-Aid. This will come crashing down so bad, it will be comical. Of course, that will follow with the ever present Viking fan cry-baby show about how “if Harvin had been healthy…if Rice wouldn’t have screwed himself and the team….if Favre wasn’t so damn old….the refs are screwing us again”…etc. You wanted it. You got it.
    Be prepared for a very rude awakening…just don’t fall on a knife when it breaks bad by week 8, because it will. It will be very interesting to see if you guys do what your fan base does when the Vikes turn sour by mid-season. Something tells me you’ll be hiding by then.

  51. “Nobody said he wasn’t good anymore.”
    are you serious???? all you guys were saying last year was how he was gonna throw a million picks and you were GLAD he was coming back etc. etc. and most of you started saying the exact same thing this year too.
    yet all he did was sweep the pckers, finish 2nd in qb rating, 3rd in mvp voting and lead the vikes to the nfcc game.

  52. Lots of prophets around here lately, for sure. Say guys, can you give me some investment predictions while you’re at it? I need money to send my kid to college.

    So tell me……what is so different this year from last year at this same exact time?
    _________________________________________________
    O.K., I’ll bite. Let’s see, where to start, where to start.
    1. The Vikings have a MUCH, MUCH harder schedule than last year. Especially the first half of the season.
    2. Chester Taylor is no longer in Purple.
    3. Brett is 1 year older.
    4. Percy is not getting any better, but seems to be declining. I believe the coaching staff really does not give a crap about his future health and will ride him like a rented mule until he falls.
    5. Henderson and Griffin are both coming off major injuries.
    6. You still have Brad “I don’t know how to count” Childress as your figurehead, ooops, I mean “coach”.
    7. Your #1 wide receiver chooses to have surgery right before the beginning of the season even though he was injured months ago. Rice will be unavailable for the fist 7-8 games if at all. I think losing a receiver with 80+ receptions and 1,300 yards qualifies as a pretty big loss.
    8. You CANNOT tell me Favre knew about the injury to Rice prior to committing to coming back. This lack of sharing information cannot make Favre too happy with upper management.
    Shall I go on?

    No, it’s actually a fact. It doesn’t matter what Rice did before Favre got there. The drop off to the next best wide receiver is 23 catches and about 500 yards and 2 TD less. It doesn’t mean that someone can’t pick up the slack, but based on the numbers, it’s a fact that there is a significant dropoff. The only one who is stating an opinion is you.

    All jokes aside. Keep your lame political views out of the discussion, that is if your talking football. Your little rant proves your no real fan rather you are talking out your ass. Peace.

    Who made you the moderator of this thread? Insults fly fast and furious among the fan boys and everything is fair game on these threads. Cusoman had something to say that didn’t agree with your politics… Too f*cking bad! You might wanna try the Adam Lambert thread – it might be more to your liking.

    “lmao” at someone who wanted to avoid going under the knife if it was at all possible? You need surgery to remedy your… “Rectal Cranial Inversion”
    But even if you get your head out of your ass – that won’t change the fact you are an idiot, as you were happy to display to EVERYONE on the thread and they were most were happy to point out.
