Visanthe Shiancoe on Packers: "Everybody is jumping on their jock"

Clearly, Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe has been reading PFT.  He noticed that two of our four writers making Super Bowl predictions had the Packers winning it all.

That’s why he plans to watch his division rivals on Sunday against the Eagles.

“You’ve got to watch a team like the Packers — they’re the new
Cowboys,” Shiancoe sarcastically told Yahoo’s Michael Silver after the Vikings loss last night. “Everybody’s jumping
on their jock
, like they’ve actually gone to the Super Bowl, and won it. Give them credit. They did good in the preseason. I mean, good. Good job. That’s good stuff.”

Classic.  I picked the Packers to win the Super Bowl, but wasn’t especially confident in picking them this Sunday against Philadelphia.  It sounds like Shiancoe is thinking the same way.

“You know what, Philly’s defense is pretty good, too,” Shiancoe said. “It always is. We’ll see how [the Packers] fare against them.”

  1. Well, you’re already a half game back big guy, but keep worrying about the headlines and what internet hacks, sorry, “experts” say about your division rivals.

  2. Shiancoe is right, the Packers looked good in the preseason last year and stumbled out of the gates so I don’t put a lot in the preseason performance. Then again Shiancoe sounds like a guy that thinks winning the division last year matters. I’m pretty sure the Saints can tell Vikings and Packers fans which win matters the most.

  3. Pull your jock strap out of your a$$ Visanthe. Quit whining b/c you guys lost just as everyone predicted. Your team is par even with the almighty Brett Favre. Vikes go 8-8 while Shiancoe whines all year and Favre makes excuses for his horrible play b/c of his ankle, shoulder, diabetes, false teeth, etc.

  4. Here come the outraged Packer cheese turds!
    I cannot wiat to see the stupidity on display today!!
    Should be good times!

  5. It’s nice to see that the opponents players are focusing more on a division rival than their selves. Maybe the Queens will fire Chilly and hire Lovie after the Packers win it all this year. Stanko sounds a little aggitated after his teams loss last night. :)~

  6. I guess all that anger comes from having a name no one could ever pronounce. I bet his first day of the school year every was a nitemare that he still relives every fall.

  7. Hey Stanko… denial is not just a river in Africa. Your sarcasm and doubt will have no outcome on Green Bay’s thrashing of Philly. Bank on it and worry about your own team LOSER.

  8. It’s too bad PFT didn’t install a tab at the top of the page, that would lead readers to an NFL weekly pick contest, which in turn would provide a season overall winner. An excellent prize could be given out after the season.
    But alas, all we get are Florio takes. Whoopie.

  9. Shank is just pissed bc his only claim to fame is when his johnnies were hangin’ out on the postgame show last year…that, and he’s looking up the NFC north TE depth chart at Finley. I realize it’s only one game, on the road, against the Super Bowl Champions, but the Vikings seem like they are ready to implode. Favre was rusty, and why? Because he skipped camp. Has nothing to do with Rice being out because Favre never had a problem before having a go-to-guy, never in Green Bay, not in NY and not last year in MN…excuses will pile up fast, it seems.

  10. Visanthe who?
    and what exactly have you won?
    sounds like he’s bitter because “everyone” has jumped off their jock…what a turd!

  11. Shiancoe’s just pissed because:
    1) Vikes lost.
    2) He secretly hates purple.
    3) Saints shut him down completely as soon as they started trying to.
    4) Porn career not taking off like he’d hoped.
    5) Jermichael Finley is by far the best tight end in the NFC North.
    6) C’mon, I mean… his first name is Visanthe! Sounds like some middle-eastern liquor or something…

  12. Lol, sounds about right. Kinda like last year how everyone on the Vikings jock. How many Packers complained about it?
    Guess Shiancoe can’t accept the truth. He won’t end up with half of Finley’s stats.
    Boo-hoo.

  13. WOW, sombodys a bit bitter that the NFL writers are not picking The Vikings to get to the superbowl.
    OMG guy!!!
    Seriously?!?!
    They are writers, not prognosticators! If they where, maybe Rosenthal, and Florio can give me some lottery numbers.

  14. Vikings went down to the big easy and held the Saints to 14 points on offense. Unfortunately our offense couldnt find any consistency. I’m as proud now of my fav football as I can be after a tough loss. 2 of the 3 best corners being out, and we still shut them down relatively speaking. I think it’s absolutely ridiculous how people are ripping the Vikings losing by 5 points on the road to the defending super bowl champs. Great game and we’ll get them next week. Maclin and jackson are licking their chops, waiting for that POS Packers secondary, cant wait for Sunday. When both teams are healthy and at full strength, the Vikings are the far superior team, not even close

  15. I am picking the Steelers to win the Super Bowl. I am also picking the Packers to beat the Eagles on Sunday. I would pick the Eagles if they still had McNabb.

  16. When he was a kid, I bet Shiancoe had a really hard time finding one of those little license plates with his name on it at the toy store.

  17. Shiancoe’s right, there’s a lot of hype. But it’s not the Packers’ fault if the media think they can win a Super Bowl. Settle down, dude, and take care of your own business.
    Between him and Longwell they already sound worried about not just the Packers but now the Lions. Typical beta talk from the most beta team of all time.

  18. “You’ve got to watch a team like the Packers — they’re the new Cowboys,” Shiancoe sarcastically told Yahoo’s Michael Silver
    ____________________
    Yeah, if the Packers win a couple more SB’s then they might start to resemble the Cowboys. I said that sarcastically.

  19. He thought he would get all the national TE attention this year and now realizes he will be second-fiddle to a Packer, and he has his undies in a twist over it. He sees the writing on the wall, just like everybody else. Yes, the Packers haven’t won anything yet, but so what? All we’re talking about is expert opinions and predictions and analysis from persons working closely within the industry, person in-the-know, and they can be wrong. But they get paid to say it anyway. Aside from upsetting a Viking player or fan, I’m OK with it. Otherwise, I’m not impressed either.

  20. As a Packer fan I like our chances. I could care less what Shiancoe, Viking fans or even the experts that pick the Packers say. The fact of the matter is no one knows for sure who will the Super Bowl. If they did they would all be laying down the cash in Vegas. Having said that, I like the Packers’ chances a lot better than the Vikings and 99.9% of the rest of the teams. All you can do is play one game at a time and try to stay injury free. Talk is cheap you have to win it on the field.

  21. shut up shiancoe. you just lost. as a vikings fan, please just shut up and don’t say anything negative about other teams. you did all off season about the saints, and you lost. shut up already. childress needs to tell all of you to stop running your mouths. shut up.

  22. Shiancoe needs to shut the hell up…you and your Queens “revenge” against the SB champs last night was pathetic. Lucky to be down by 5, loser!!

  23. I’m really on the fence as to how good I think the Packers will be. Sunday will tell me a lot. Philly is good and packers are on the road. Never easy in the NFL. No question we have a superbowl offense. I have a lot of questions about the D though.
    That aside, long dong shiancoe should probably be more concerned about his squad.

  24. I bet you anything Visanthe ,that Greenbay post about 3x the points your anemic ass offense put up , there going to light you guys up to this season as well ,you just stop worrying about the Pack and more on how your going to score more than 9-10 per

  25. Hey — he could be right. Packers look pretty good but it is a looooong way to January.
    On the other hand, the Vikings might be better if they had a quarterback who would practice with his team.

  26. I feel bad for the Saints fans. Last year, I made no excuses about the loss in the NFCCG, even after the array of terrible calls. But after last night, It’s the Saints fans I feel bad for. I mean, it must suck to know that the only way you can win, is with the officials helping you. The game from last season and the one last night were laughable when you look at how many calls went against the Vikings and for the Saints. Even the announcers made those remarks. Great game refs, I mean… Saints.

  27. Settle down Shiancoe…..remember, the Packers have been the sexy pick since 2007 and while they did get to the NFC Championship game in 2007, it was with………………………..Brett Favre! LMAO

  28. That is another downfall of being picked by everyone under the sun to go to the SuperBowl. Not only is it a huge jinx, but it pisses off the other teams who feel they are contenders. That said, the Vikings are darling picks constantly… and as Visanthe himself says, you’d think they’d actually gone to the SuperBowl, and won it. Like, ever.

  29. I feel bad for the Saints fans. Last year, I made no excuses about the loss in the NFCCG, even after the array of terrible calls. But after last night, It’s the Saints fans I feel bad for. I mean, it must suck to know that the only way you can win, is with the officials helping you.

  31. Good lord… I don’t likt either team, but give me a break… The Vikings have done less in history than the Packers…. Shianco doesn’t seem to mind when everybody is on the Vikings jock, as he so elegantly put it…. He’s obviously just jealous that all the attention isn’t on him and the Vikings anymore…. Like a little kid that has to share a toy

    Those purple grapes are a tad sour. Better buy the green ones.
    Thats a good one!!!

  33. Hey Stanko! Pay close attention and you’ll see how REAL champs get it done! Pay special attention to Finley, our TE that will end up being one of the greats.
    Poor guy, even he realizes that last year was a fluke and he’s judging his success on us. Why, might you ask would he do that?
    Because even he knows they got lucky last year. Enjoy your return to obscurity Stanko! Finley is twice the TE you could dream of being and you’re team will be lucky to be 6-10.

  34. I would have preferred Shiancoe to take the Allen Iverson approach. “We’re talking about preseason. We are not talking about the game, when it really matters, we are talking about preseason.”

  35. “Everybody’s jumping on their jock, like they’ve actually gone to the Super Bowl, and won it. Give them credit”
    Well, they have been AND won it – several times! It’s your Vikings that have never won it…

  36. Shank’s right – the hype is on the Packers, but that is a good thing. The Vikes can prod along and then dominate come post season.

  37. wow…..
    Not even 24 hours since they lost and this team is in full whine mode.
    “it’s the ref’s fault”, “we’re being disrespected since some talking idiots don’t think we will go to the SB.”
    Blah, blah, blah, blah….. Can somebody please call the WAHHHmbulance?
    I can’t wait until they go 0-3.
    Shiancoe, Maybe you should focus more on your team, and the fact that a safety was able to completely shut you out last night instead of what other people say about other teams.

    Keep the hating. This game will be a blowout. Not big on the prediction thing..we’ll see.

  39. These guys should be watching division rivals play whenever the schedule allows, they shouldn’t need press pumping up the other team(s) or trash talking to do so.

  40. Whys is Visanthe upset?
    Lets see…
    Only two first downs and no points in the second half.
    Yeah, ripping the Packers is the next obvious move…
    /Stop reading teh internets! Oh noes!

  41. “Everybody’s jumping on their jock, like they’ve actually gone to the Super Bowl, and won it.
    That’s kinda of like a possum calling a rat a long nosed SOB!! What the hell have the Queens done in the SB?? Stanko’s a biatch!

  42. I can’t believe I am agreeing with a Viking. He’s right, the pre-season means next to nothing and last year was the same thing, a strong preseason set up big expectations that fizzled to a 4-4 start for the Packers. The Eagles were a playoff team last year and should be again this year so Sunday is no gimmee.
    The only gimmees left in the NFL are the Vikings in a playoff game. At that point, you just know they are going to self destruct and hand the other team a W. The fun in watching is the new and creative ways they come up with in choking. Of course it helps to have an idiot head coach that sends 12 players into the huddle but no worries for the Viking fans, they will concoct a new way to blow it this year if they should be fortunate enough to get that far, not looking good so far.

  43. Actually, he’s right. It always concerns me when all the “experts” jump on the Packer bandwagon. Seems the year never goes the way it should. Guess we’ll find out come Sunday.
    Go Pack….

  44. @wrath4771 – I’m sure Packers fans knew long before Saints fans what matters most. Actually 3 times, chumps.

  45. Just as long as no one is jumping on your jock Shiancoe…. Seeing how that thing hangs down to your knee, you’d probably hurt someone

    Vikes offense was garbage last night.

  48. You tell em Shaincoe your from the Giants and have play for a couple former Eagles coaches Leslie frazier and Brad Childress. Packers arent getting no cake walk this week. The Eagles defense always ranks at the top of the league in turnovers and sacks. BG is gonna whisper something in Rodgers ear.

    ===================================
    I think we’ve already seen it- in your post.
    When referencing stupidity, you may want to try spelling “wait” correctly in the same sentence.

  51. Lets see here, “jumpin on their jock” huh? Why is he so worried about what prognosticators say? Sounds like he’s crabby about losing in such an uninspired team performance. Shouldn’t he be more concerned with the fact that his team couldn’t score double digits against the Saints D? The vikings are just an immature team emotionally and it starts at the top. Chilly, brett, and zigi all seem more preoccupied with appearances and media respect than they should.

  52. So sick of the media’s new love affair for the Pack and Aaron Rodgers. I watched Mooch and Trent Green fall all over themselves about how good they are and how amazing Rodgers is. Then I got listen to the local Philly guys doing the same thing. Ray Didinger was almost as bad as Mooch.
    Enough. I hope we crush them and break Aaron Rodgers.

  53. Dude you played well but you lost. Don’t talk shit after you lose. You weren’t shit before Favre and you won’t be after.

  54. (from-unda)Cheese heads are so easy. Here’s a thought, instead of demanding respect; earn it. Your team has done nothing to be given any recognition whatsoever. Rodgers is decent, but who’s he gona throw to all year, Donald (duck) Driver, this should be a comical season for this division. Maybe after the Vikes beat the Pack twice (again, hahahahahahah) they’ll shut up, but I doubt it, they are gluttons for punishment, not to mention just plain gluttons. (this means your fat)

  55. Shianco sounds like a guy who plays for a team that got it’s ass kicked in last night after spending the entire off season talking about how they were gonna take it to the saints, and get revenge for the beating they took in the NFCCG. If they gave out trophys for talking big, and then making excuses when you get beat down, the Vikings trophy case might not be as empty as the dome will be by mid-season.

  56. Why are the Packers blamed for all the vikings troubles? The Packers send the vikings money to keep the franchise going (supplemental revenue sharing)
    If it isn’t the Packers it is the officiating crew at the vikings game that get blamed for vikings woes.
    The crying whiners associated with the vikings just don’t understand that Superbowls are earned. It is not an affirmative action program.

  57. Clearly, Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe has been reading PFT. He noticed that two of our four writers making Super Bowl predictions had the Packers winning it all.
    ———
    you need to calm down with the patting yourselves on the back thing, thinking everybody and their brother reads this site. You think you’re the only people who picked the Packers to win? Pick up a SI issue and see that you and just about every other writer in the country has them going to the superbowl.
    douche

  58. Um, does he mean like everyone has been towards the Vikings since getting Father Favre back?
    All I’ve heard about all offseason is the Vikings going deep, despite the fact there is little chance they have the same kind of season as last year.

  59. i have to agree with him. a lot of people are on the packer nuts this year and i’m not sure why.
    what has aaron rodgers ever done? and they’re overrated defense was “giving it up” like your mom after 2 bottles of boone’s farm.

    Maybe the Queens will fire Chilly and hire Lovie after the Packers win it all this year.
    ————————————————
    Hopefully, they won’t fire his dumbass, because his coaching presence guarantees several more years of mediocrity. But if they do, Lovie and his perpetually clueless expression would be an acceptable replacement. He’d fit in well with the Queens’ long, proud history of great coaches like Chilly, Denny Green, Les Steckel.

    Only one little turd comment directed toward Packer fans?
    No comments on your own team…….?
    Looks like you got your mouth shut for you, little girl.
    Now get back to flippin’ burgers.
    Wimp!

  64. every packer fan out there is a prick. they all think that they are the best team out there every year, even tho they never are. they have the worst fans in the world, they are all just pricks. they all just get drunk and act like idiots.
    i dont have any problems with the vikings or their fans, so good luck on the season.
    but for real packer fans gotta shut the hell up and realize they havent done shit with Queer-Rod and that if they actually wanna make it somewhere they need good ol’ brett favre.
    so packer fans put down your beers, stop driving your trackers, and turn down ur country music and realize that your team is not as good as you guys put it out to be. and that you guys should learn some class, you are the only fans in the NFL who act the way that you do. obviously there is something wrong when there are 32 teams and there is only 1 fan base that acts the way you do.

  68. Last year the Packers were the “favorites” and they went undefeated in the “preseason” and then they proceeded to get beat twice by the Vikes, the Steelers and let’s not forget……the Browns and the Mighty mighty Bucs. I think Aaron Rodgers is great….for fantasy football players who only want the stats but with all of his 3 year fanfare, let’s not forget that his record is about .500, no playoff wins, no division titles, no MVP’s. I think Rodgers will truely be a great QB once BF retires but for the time being, he will remain haunted by the thoughts of BF whoopin’ on his ass not once but twice!

    Anyway, on to Shiancos comments. I thought what he said was spot on, but his timing isn’t so good. Since he said it after a tough loss, he really does come off as a spoiled, sore loser. I guess he’s just pissed that his team isn’t getting the same love from commentators as the Packers. Big deal man. I love the Packers, but they have not won anything yet. As a matter a fact, usually if Peter King picks you to go to the Superbowl, it’s the kiss of death!

    Comments like this from diehard Packer fans just prove Shiancoe is just frustrated. For a pro to say the obvious as if it were a sarcasm just shows pure frustration with the way things are going on his own team. Welcome to the REAL world of “Brett Favre…Legend in His Own Mind”.

I don’t like all the SB talk in Green Bay, because that sets you up for a fall.

  82. to all of you commenting on how the vikes and shancoe should worry about themselves and how they lost:
    that’s kind of what nfl teams do. after a loss they look forward. part of that would be concerning yourself with your biggest rival and competition within the division. in this case it’s the packers, who have all the appearances of being a good team this season.
    how is this new to any of you? did you all start watching football this year?

    wonderful reference…so current and with the times. and your PFT site name is a reference to something that is half a decade old.
    why is it so many packer fans live in the past and are always looking backwards?

    every packer fan out there is a prick. they all think that they are the best team out there every year, even tho they never are. they have the worst fans in the world, they are all just pricks. they all just get drunk and act like idiots.
    i dont have any problems with the vikings or their fans, so good luck on the season.
    but for real packer fans gotta shut the hell up and realize they havent done shit with Queer-Rod and that if they actually wanna make it somewhere they need good ol’ brett favre.
    so packer fans put down your beers, stop driving your trackers, and turn down ur country music and realize that your team is not as good as you guys put it out to be. and that you guys should learn some class, you are the only fans in the NFL who act the way that you do. obviously there is something wrong when there are 32 teams and there is only 1 fan base that acts the way you do.
    *****************************************
    You proved my point that you are an idiot. The samething can be said for any homer, whether a Steeler; Bronco; Raider; Patriot fan…Its the media that kicked up this frenzy. You need to take a chill pill and put away your white sheet and look for reality. What are the color of the clouds in your world? Just wondering as I contemplate drinking a beer after I finish plowing the field and listening to George Strait. If that offends you then please go crawl in a hole, cover yourself up and leave the rest of humanity alone, your giving us a bad rap…

    Shank’s right – the hype is on the Packers, but that is a good thing. The Vikes can prod along and then dominate come post season.
    *****************************
    In their entire 50 year history, whom have the ViQueens ever dominated in the Post Season? 0-4 in the Super Bowl…Doesn’ t sound like domination to me…

  88. @ PPaulson…
    …of course we’re good. We have a franchise that could make it to the playoffs, take a shot at the SB each year…we have something to look forward to unlike many other franchises in the league.
    Queens future in Minny. What fans?!
    Glad we got rid of BrINT. We are set with another top QB for years to come. How many other teams in the league can say that?! One championship/one SB loss from Favre and plenty of heartaches in the playoffs…thanks but no-thanks!
    We support our team. Smallest city to have an NFL team. No blackouts here. Sold out each and every game. Fans waiting on a waiting list to watch this team. You obviously don’t watch football. Have you seen Philly/NY fans…chucking batteries/bottles onto the field…and they’re not even buzzed yet!!

    I feel bad for the Saints fans. Last year, I made no excuses about the loss in the NFCCG, even after the array of terrible calls. But after last night, It’s the Saints fans I feel bad for. I mean, it must suck to know that the only way you can win, is with the officials helping you. The game from waaaaahhhhhh. Wahhhhhhhhh. Wah. Wah. Waaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  90. philbirds… the Packers have more talent and depth than the Eagles at EVERY position and on both sides of the ball. So… good luck with that prediction.

    ==================================
    OMG…What a douche bag you are!!! Are you a fan of the Queens or the Ravens?? You guys piss and moan constantly about how the officals constantly steal games from you. Did it ever occur to you that if your older than dirt QB had gotten his ass into training camp that maybe his timing with his receivers wouldn’t have been so far off?? You have to be the dumbest ass on this site and that’s saying alot! The Saints had your number, the same as last year and they kicked your ass! Stop crying like a bitch and be a man! Your team lost a game….they all do once in a while. Blaming officals for your teams subpar play is just pathetic!

    Really PPaulson? Who knew? You must be an excellent judge of character what with your homophobic slurs at our QB and all. I just can’t get over how angry and miserable it must be to be a vikings fan based on your vile, sophomoric comments.
    Charles Wood says:

    You can go ahead and feel bad for them. They sure aren’t! They got the trophy and “W”…your team doesn’t. That’s the only thing that matters to the Saints at this point. Still partying from SB Sunday.

    Ernie Sims never did anything against The Packers while with the little Lio’s.
    you went 11-5 last year with McNabb. Not Kolb. There is not one position that the Eagles are better, NOT ONE!!!
    Remember that the packers where 11-5 too, and the O line is far better.

    Don’t be a tool. The calls were not bad last night. They were no worse than any other NFL game. The Vikings lost, plain and simple. I’m not a fan of either team. As a fan of the Lions I’ve seen my share of awful calls, every game it seems. When you’re an awful team you don’t get the upper calibre refs and those things happen. Last nights refereeing was nowhere near that. In fact, with the exception of a questionable missed call on the INT, almost every call I saw that was or wasn’t called wen t in the Vikings favor. Let us recap:
    1)On a fair catch, the returner is not allowed to throw a block before the ball gets there anymore than the coverage team can make early contact. Should have been 15 yards closer to the endzone to start your TD drive.
    2)What in the heck was with that false start penalty against Breese. That was ridiculous.
    Every single offside or false start penalties were fine. They were legit. If you’re talking about the “catch”, sorry, but that was no catch. Last I checked, if the ball ricochets off your hands into your body and your hands don’t get under it before your body hits, it’s not physically possible to have your sternum make the catch. Not to mention, they called incomplete. There is absolutely no way that you can overturn that, period.
    The simple fact is, both teams played particularly bad. Vikings fans should actually feel lucky. If Breese hadn’t missed on a long pass, had his receivers drop 3 more and they hadn’t missed 2 field goals, this could have been a pretty bad one. Instead of pointing at the officials, tell your QB to get to camp earlier so he can get on the same page with some of his receivers and then tell your coach to try running the ball when the Saints change gameplans and only come with 3 down lineman. That’s your teams fault, not the refs.

  103. Dear Canned Gravy,
    I was wondering if you’d ever heard the phrase, epic fail. Or maybe, you got owned?
    I’ve recently taken a vow of trash talking celebacy, to never verbally bash another on this site without using it in a football subtext.
    But I’m sorry, this one was way to easy.
    Later.
    P.S. You taste awesome on my mashed potatoes.

  104. Nothing like nice, low standards eh Vikes fans?
    “Sure our offense stunk up the place, our QB checked out of run plays just to miss wide open receivers, and our coaching staff openly said they ‘had no adjustments’ for the Saints D… but we didn’t lose by like, you know… a LOT.”
    LMFAO.
    Winning is everything, but if you’re a grown man wearing PURPLE, you’ve already lost. 😉

  105. Did any of you guys actually read the article?
    Oh, and it’s great to know Bob Nelson is racist as well.

    First off, I’m not one of your tween peers, no need to say “OMG”. Secondly, if you aren’t familiar with football, officiating (good or bad) can have a significant effect on games… if it didn’t, there would be no need for officials, correct? So, when the calls are piss-poor at best and the officials admit to it afterward (NFCCG) it makes fans of a franchise frustrated. The officials certainly aren’t the only ones to blame. Coaching and Play-Calling played a huge role in the Vikings loss… Not to mention the Saints playing well. My point is that this is now two games (back to back between these teams) that the officials have made ‘calls’ that helped the Saints…

  107. Haha this is a hilarious thread. With all the smack talk this offseason I thoughtVikes fans would have been a bit more classy. I mean, ya lost to a good team. Blaming the refs….never gets old. Just a bunch of Chilly followers.

  108. I’ll bet the Pack lives up to most of the pre-season hype, if for no nother reason that Aaron Rodgers is frigging good. Now excuse me while I go bang my head against my desk.
    Then again, if the Pack fails to live up to the hype, as it has the past 2 years, I’ll be dancing on that same desk. However, I’ll still try to avoid rubbing it in like some of the regular 13 year old cheeser posters have today.

  109. The Vikings are pretty close.
    Once Jared Allen actually has an impact, and Brett Favre stops crapping himself in front of every blitz, and the “Williams Wall” stops getting humiliated, (LOL) and Childress earns back the locker room, and Peterson learns how to pick up a blitz, and Sidney Rice gets back w half the year over, and Berrian learns to run a route, and McKinnie doesnt need a f’n CART RIDE over a hurt finger (LOL), and you find another corner, and your coach understands what to do against a 3-man rush…
    you guys should hopefully start “clicking”.

  110. Looks like the state of Minnesota had to bust out the purple drank after last night’s embarassing loss. I find it hard to believe you guys can right this stuff without laughing.
    Typical Vikings fans, they have themselves convinced they won even though they were behind in pts when time ran out.

  111. “Everybody’s jumping on their jock, like they’ve actually gone to the Super Bowl, and won it.

    Hey V-Shank. Their franchise actually HAS done that. Maybe not recently, but they have …unlike a certain franchise.

  112. Clearly, Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe has been reading PFT. He noticed that two of our four writers making Super Bowl predictions had the Packers winning it all.
    ———
    you need to calm down with the patting yourselves on the back thing, thinking everybody and their brother reads this site. You think you’re the only people who picked the Packers to win? Pick up a SI issue and see that you and just about every other writer in the country has them going to the superbowl.
    douche
    ———
    You missed it Dude. KR was being a funny guy. The key was “clearly”.
    I agree Rosenthal might be a douche, but today, you are as well.

  113. I couldn’t help but laugh at this comment…”Everybody’s jumping on their jock, like they’ve actually gone to the Super Bowl, and won it. ”
    Ummmm! Excuse me Visanthe, but if you check the record books you will see that the Packers HAVE been to the Super Bowl and actually WON it. Not once, but THREE times. And the ast time I checked, that was exactly three more times than the Vikings.
    I know I’m taking his quote out of context, but I couldn’t resist. 🙂
