A Vikings player that made their name while being a Viking then came to the Packers. I can't think of any.

Gilbert Brown and Koren Robinson are the only two I can think of that played for Vikings then Packers. Neither made their name with the Vikings.

Ding Ding Ding! Well done!

Wait! OOOOOPS! NOOOOOOOOOOO!

Gilbert Brown never played a down for the Queens. He was drafted in the 3rd round of the '93 draft, and was WAIVED by MIN in the final roster cutdown, August 30th, 1993. Green Bay signed him on August 31st, 1993.

And, Koren played just one year in MIN, 2005, primarily as their kick returner... He only played in 5 games for them, amassing a whopping 22 catches and 1 TD...

So, Vikings? That's the best you got? Holy Fuck!

Why the hell would ANY Viking player ever go to GB? The promises of gold and honey? That's like King Leonidas giving in to Xerxes. You guys are delusional. There's a reason why your players often sign smaller deals with us (and still succeed). Sure, may have been at the twilight of their careers. It's called older and WISER.

Not that any of you clowns know what the later word means..

"Succeed?"
Yeah...you are right.
Favre, Sharper and Longwell got several Super Bowl rings while playing for the Vikings.
Oh.....wait.....if by "succeed" you mean they looked so much better when playing for the Vikings because the Vikings as a team are so much lower talent wise that the EX-Packer players LOOKED "great", yeah, i can agree with that![grin1]

Well, they certainly didn't get several Super Bowl rings with the Packers.

I'd put money down on the Packers winning another, before the Vikings win their first.

Packers | Made offer to Greg Jennings
Sun, 17 Mar 2013 09:05:01 -0700

The Green Bay Packers made an offer to Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings that averaged about $8 million per season, but he decided to accept the Vikings' contract offer of about $9 million per season.


It's all about the money with Jennings face it.



Patriots | Made offer to Greg Jennings
Sun, 17 Mar 2013 09:15:35 -0700

The New England Patriots offered Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings a contract worth around $6 million per season but the talks between the two sides did not go far.

I hate to admit it, but I wouldn't be surprised. I've said this before, the Football Gods hate Minnesota. Hell, the Sports Gods hate Minnesota. '87 and '91 were flukes.

Where's the sources? I was seeing different numbers, but will admit being wrong if your source is accurate.

uffda udfa (1h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (2h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (3h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (7h) : It's just fine.
musccy (7h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (7h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (8h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (8h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (8h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (9h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (9h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (9h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (13h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (13h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (14h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (16h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (16h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (16h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (16h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (16h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (17h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (18h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (18h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (18h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (18h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (18h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (18h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (18h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (18h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
