Vikings add Hankton to their Skankdom

I’m embarrassed to say that the signing of Cortez Hankton slipped past me this week. Everyone’s making a big deal about New England’s off-season, and I suppose they have a point. Adalius Thomas, Donte Stallworth, Wes Welker, Sammy Morris, and Kelly Washington are decent players.

But check out this off-season bonanza: Bobby Wade, Vishante Shiancoe, AND Hankton.

In your face, Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli.

I know they are not, but the Vikings off-season would appear to support the notion that Brad Childress and Rick Spielman are functionally retarded. They certainly seem to lack the necessities to effectively manage their football team.

I’ve said from Day One that Childress will go down as an 8-8 guy. He’s not horrible, like Mike Tice was, but he’s still mediocre. Speilman, however, is an abomination, and the 1-2 punch of Childress and Spielman could set the Minnesota franchise back five years.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
