    Sage Rosenfels (Vikings attempted to trade for him in offseason)

    I heard this from ESPN this morning when they were goin through the games and talking about tavaris jackson and everybodys lack of confidence in him except brad childress. They didnt give any details but just said they tried and failed to get him.

    I am glad this didnt happen because Im a huge PACKERS fan and it would have been hard to root for him. It would have been like the ellis hobbs and patriots which I hate the patriots.

    BTW, my fiancee is a vikings fan and her whole family. A fun rivalry where my team almost always WINS

    Go PACKERS

    Does anybody know anything about this attempted trade?

    the all time is 49 - 44 - 1 in favor of the Packers, that really isn't an "almost always wins" kind of situation. IMO

    Re: Sage Rosenfels (Vikings attempted to trade for him in offseason)

    They inquired about Sage in the offseason. They offered a 3rd rounder. Houston wanted a 2nd rounder.

    Boy, I bet they would like to have that decision back! Good judgement once again by Childress and company.

    Prediction: this weekend Carolina has 11 men in the box on every snap. 0-3 here we come!

    Seneca needs to become a Viking!

    I'm guessing Chili wishes they would have gotten this trade done. Tjax is not cutting the mustard and Zygi has Chilis job in his sights.

    Re: Sage Rosenfels (Vikings attempted to trade for him in offseason)

    I think it would be great for either one of them to become a Viking. I was at the Colts game this weekend and the Minnesota fans had some strong opinions for Jackson anytime he through an incomplete pass. Some were even talking about how good they could be if they only had Brad Johnson taking the snaps.

    Yeah, but Childress sucks whoever's the quarterback. Stick Favre in there, and Childress still sucks.

    Besides both Sage and Seneca might be good quarterbacks, but they only have a limited ceiling. No reason to overpay for either.

    And I'll still give Jackson time. He did miss most of the preseason--and did Berrian or Rice even play Sunday? That's not exactly a great corps of receivers.

    Re: Sage Rosenfels (Vikings attempted to trade for him in offseason)

    As a Packer fan, I'm glad the Vikes didn't get Sage. As a Cyclone fan, I'm very disappointed. He needs an opportunity to play somewhere - as does Seneca.

    I do agree, I want him to start in the nfl, just not in the nfc north

    Re: Sage Rosenfels (Vikings attempted to trade for him in offseason)

    Once the Vikings go 0-16, they will move to Memphis and their nickname will be the Flying Elvi, Their road unis will look like gold suits, and the home like jumpsuits. The Helmets will be decorated with pompadours and sideburns. The cheerleaders will be the Lisa Maries, fried banana sandwiches will be sold at the concession stands. Then, and only then, would it be OK for Seneca or Sage to be traded to this organization. What a dream that would be

    The other big issue that will be a factor for 2 more games is the suspension of McKinnie. The fill-in LT was responsible for the pass rush that stripped the ball from T-Jak in the 3rd qtr. The deep ball is the best way to burn a stacked defense, but it's hard to pull off when you can't control the opponents best pass rusher.

    The defense also needs to hope that Williams can be cleared to finally see action at SS in the next few weeks. The rookie back there cost them the Colts game.

    Spoken like a true Puckers fan. And I suppose that it will happen--when they go 0-16. Fortunately, they still have the Packers to beat like a drum in Minnesota, so that won't be this year.
