Jerome Simpson says he has his “juice” back

Minnesota Vikings' Simpson fumbles a pass reception which is recovered by Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Foster during NFL game in Minneapolis Reuters

Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said in May that receiver Jerome Simpson was the “juice” the team needed.

So far, the juice hasn’t gotten loose for the Simpson not named Orental.  After a three-game suspension for pleading guilty to selling a different kind of juice, Simpson suffered an injury.  Though he’s been playing, he hasn’t been explosive.

He now says he will be.  In a portion of an item on VikingUpdate.com that isn’t trapped behind a pay wall, Simpson is quoted as saying he got his “juice back” during Thursday’s practice.

Whether that pumps up a stagnant purple passing game remains to be seen.  If it doesn’t against the Lions on Sunday, the lack of juice could result in Musgrave ending up with the lack of a job.

    Hopefully the juice includes performance enhancing substances.

    Simpson’s only significant play this entire year came against the Lions last month. He is only a slightly lesser disappointment for the team than John Carlson has been this year.

    Miraculous. Just in time for the Lions. This guy will have a career day, Pederson will rush for 400 yards, Harvin will play with a sprained ankle and run two punts back for TD’s and the crowd will hold hands and sign cum by ya all day long.
    Oh, I forgot the hail, fire and brimstone that always falls on the Lions side of the field at Mall of America Stadium.
    I mean if the Lions can find a way to loose to the Vikes they will.

    Bill Musgrave doesn’t deserve to keep his job after this season. How many times are you going to have Christian Ponder rollout to the right before you realize the opposing teams already know that is where he is going. Or that all the passing plays are screens behind the line of scrimmage.

    They’re so cute with their thinking their season isn’t over…

    Doesn’t matter how much juice can be squeezed if our QB can’t find the kitchen where the juice is located.

    “Who told you that you could use The Juice?!! Did I tell you to use The Juice?! This is lewd, lascivious, salacious, outrageous!”

    Maybe Jackie Chiles should speak to Mr. Simpson.

    Wasn’t OJ’s first name “Orenthal” not “Orental”?

    I don’t even know where to begin to dissect that nonsense you just typed

    Hopefully its prune juice because that offense is constipated. It will take more than a dose of Simpson to cure what ails them, mainly a 3rd rate QB that they drafted way too high at #12 overall.

    Awesome! Now if they only had a qb that could deliver a pass!

    Maybe with Percy out they’ll be forced to throw the ball to The Juice, hopefully more than 4 yards downfield. The biggest problem with this offense is that they’re terrified of throwing a mid-range pass. Everything is either around the line of scrimmage or a low-percentage sideline fade route. If they start running some slants and square-ins to the middle of the field, Detroit won’t know what to do with it because they haven’t seen any of that on film.

    Hopefully he checks the package of juice before he signs for it this time around…..

    @samanthasteele

    Thanks for proving my point.

    Packer fans are so cute living vicariously through football players.
