4:04 pm mnvikingschat: @ffsource Thanks for joining! #Vikings #vikingschat
4:05 pm justjudyblog: I just found out that we are getting two free tickets to see the #Vikes tonight! Hellz to the yes!!! #vikingschat
4:05 pm mnvikingschat: What will you be watching for for tonight’s #Vikings game? #vikingschat
4:05 pm mattlechner: Doing well today. Watching a lot if preseason games this weekend on NFL network #Vikingschat
4:06 pm mnvikingschat: @justjudyblog Sweet! Where you sitting, Judy? #Vikings #vikingschat
4:06 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner God bless the NFL Network, huh? #Vikings #vikingschat
4:07 pm mattlechner: Tonight should be a good indicator of how the Vikes will open the season #Vikingschat
4:08 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Definitely. I’m very concerned about the offensive line. #Vikings #stribvikes #vikingschat
4:09 pm mattlechner: NFL network is showing every preseason game…I have watched almost all of them. DVR fastforward helps #Vikingschat
4:10 pm mattlechner: OL is a serious concern. Unfortunely Seattle’s D doesn’t pose a stiff test. #Vikingschat
4:11 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Right. Same thing on the opposite side of the ball: #Vikings Dline won’t face much of a test. #vikingschat
4:11 pm mattlechner: I would like to see Berrian get involved early too. He is a guy who needs targets early to keep in interested #Vikingschat
4:12 pm MNSportsCrap: @mattlechner #vikingschat I hear ya! How important is Berrian to the Vikes now?!? #vikingschat
4:12 pm mattlechner: At least Hasselbeck is an established QB that should help test the D somewhat #Vikingschat
4:13 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Absolutely agree. If Berrian and Favre can get in synch, it’s gonna go a long way. He needs to stretch the field. #vikingschat
4:13 pm mnvikingschat: @MNSportsCrap I hope Berrain stays healthy throughout the year. That hammy could be a problem. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:14 pm MNSportsCrap: Hey Tweeps, just joining MN Vikings Chat for the next hr or so. (http://bit.ly/vikingschat) #vikingschat
4:14 pm mattlechner: @MNSportsCrap Berrian needs to be a red zone threat. He can run away from guys but needs to mix it up in traffic #Vikingschat
4:14 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Yeah. I want to see the safeties tested big time. We need to see someone step up back there. #Vikings #StribVikes #vikingschat
4:14 pm MNSportsCrap: @mnvikingschat #vikingschat I think it was BOTH hammies for Berrian last year. 🙁 #vikingschat
4:15 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner @MNSportsCrap – That’d be great but it feels like he’d break. 🙂 #Vikings #vikingschat
4:16 pm mattlechner: Yes Berrian does play fragile #Vikingschat
4:17 pm mnvikingschat: What rookies are you guys going to watch? #Vikings #vikingschat
4:18 pm mattlechner: Safeties, Cook and pass rush is of interest to me #Vikingschat
4:18 pm justjudyblog: We don’t know yet because we haven’t picked up the tickets. A friend of ours won them so I’m hoping they are good! #vikingschat
4:18 pm MNSportsCrap: #vikingschat Easy answer…but Cook. It will be interesting to see him get a big block of time. #vikingschat
4:19 pm mnvikingschat: @justjudyblog Take some pictures & video! #Vikings #vikingschat
4:19 pm SusieHomemaker1: RT @justjudyblog: We don’t know yet because we haven’t picked up the tickets. A friend of ours won them so I’m hoping they are good! #vikingschat
4:20 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner I’m surprised we haven’t really heard anything from Everson Griffen. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:20 pm mattlechner: Agreed Cook is of most interest. Interested to watch if Gerhart get 3rd down chances #Vikingschat
4:21 pm mnvikingschat: @MNSportsCrap I think they want Cook to win the job. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:21 pm ERHeil: @MattLechner Dude, check out www.pickpointz.com tonight if ur watching the game #Vikingschat
4:22 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner I really hope Gerhart is a quick study. He can run, but if he can block…I’d be very happy. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:22 pm mattlechner: Yes, Griffen had been a ghost. Not good for him #Vikingschat
4:23 pm ERHeil: No joke, r u interested in trying a new app during the Vikings game tonight and possibly winning some stuff? #vikingschat
4:23 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Tough to break in on the #Vikings DLine, though. I wonder if it’s a question of his talent or our line’s talent. #vikingschat
4:23 pm mattlechner: @ERHeil I’ll check it out #Vikingschat
4:24 pm MNSportsCrap: @mnvikingschat #vikingschat exactly! Gerhardt has to block. Sadly in yr 4 AD is still not dependable blocking. out-tempoed? #vikingschat
4:25 pm ERHeil: @MattLechner u predict score/winner and win rewards points. the site xplains. LMK what u think #Vikingschat
4:26 pm mattlechner: @MNSportsCrap For a guy who loves contact, AP sure doesn’t attack on blocks. It’s weird #Vikingschat
4:26 pm ERHeil: @MattLechner it’s a beta but totally legit. #Vikingschat
4:26 pm MNSportsCrap: I assume we will pick up a free agent or two in the next 2 weeks. What spots? Center? KR? WR? #vikingschat #vikingschat
4:26 pm mattlechner: @ERHeil just Vikes game or all NFL? #Vikingschat
4:27 pm MNSportsCrap: @mattlechner I hear ya on AD. Remember Emmit Smith? That was attacking on blocks! That’s what I thought we’d get. #vikingschat
4:27 pm Soopafreak: my #1 concern RT @mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Definitely. I’m very concerned about the offensive line. #Vikings #stribvikes #vikingschat
4:27 pm mattlechner: Watching Benny Sapp’s debut with Miami. Good special teams play for Sapp. #Vikingschat
4:28 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner @MNSportsCrap – Peterson’s obviously not confident in his blocking abilities. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:28 pm mnvikingschat: @Soopafreak Should the #Vikings be looking for a center? #vikingschat
4:28 pm mattlechner: Sullivan is back tonight so no excuses for #1 OL #Vikingschat
4:29 pm mnvikingschat: @MNSportsCrap I hope it’s center. There will probably be plenty of receivers cut. There usually are. #vikingschat
4:29 pm mattlechner: Blocking is an attitude. You can be undersized and be a great blocker. AP is a mystery. #Vikingschat
4:30 pm Soopafreak: @mnvikingschat possibly, I actually like moving AH to center if he can handle it to give some size across the line. #vikingschat
4:31 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner It will be interesting to see if Sullivan has got a lot of rust or not. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:31 pm Soopafreak: @mnvikingschat but if a halfway decent one is out there for sure. nothing against Sully but he was average at best last yr. #vikingschat
4:31 pm mnvikingschat: @Soopafreak He is a big guy but the fact that they’re trying Herrera at center tells me they need to look for depth there. #vikingschat
4:32 pm mattlechner: Still a concern to me is McKinnie. Speed rushers and LBs are finding their way around him. #Vikingschat
4:32 pm mnvikingschat: What rookies are going to make the team? Cook, Gerhart, who else? #vikingschat
4:32 pm MNSportsCrap: @soopafreak AH at center is really interesting….could it be that easy to improve there? #vikingschat
4:33 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Don’t get me started on McKinnie! He’s average ALL AROUND. #Vikings #StribVikes #vikingschat
4:33 pm MNSportsCrap: #vikingschat Is Sully bigger this year? Last year it seemed like they kept saying he’d improve this year when he got stronger. #vikingschat
4:33 pm mattlechner: I think Webb makes the roster Sage is out #Vikingschat
4:34 pm mnvikingschat: @MNSportsCrap Good question! A stronger Sullivan might do the trick. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:35 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner I agree: Webb makes the squad as well. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:35 pm mattlechner: Don’t know about Sullivan’s strength. He’s been sidelined most preseason #Vikingschat
4:35 pm MNSportsCrap: #vikingschat Yep! Sage is out. 2 bad, but it doesn’t feel like a huge loss. (I think that’s some of the $ that went to Favre) #vikingschat
4:36 pm mattlechner: Maybe only 3 rooks make the roster #Vikingschat
4:36 pm MNSportsCrap: @mnvikingschat #vikingschat Should we make a point to mention all the Vikes who use Twitter each wk…so one will join us? #vikingschat
4:37 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Chris DeGeare probably makes it, too. I’ve got Cook, Gerhart, Webb & DeGeare #Vikings #vikingschat
4:37 pm MNSportsCrap: #vikingschat If I heard correctly Shanko leads all TE’s with TD’s in the last 3 yrs. Nice! #vikingschat
4:38 pm mattlechner: Oh yeah DeGeare for sure for OL depth #Vikingschat
4:38 pm Soopafreak: sure hope so. RT @MNSportsCrap: @soopafreak AH at center is really interesting….could it be that easy to improve there? #vikingschat
4:39 pm mnvikingschat: Vikings on Twitter list: http://twitter.com/#list/mnvikingschat/mn-vikings-on-twitter #Vikings #Stribvikes #vikingschat
4:39 pm MNSportsCrap: @Mnvikingschat @mattlechner #vikingschat +1-2 to the practice sqd. I think they have a cple psq guys that used up their elig. #vikingschat
4:39 pm Soopafreak: 10000! agree!!! RT @mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Don’t get me started on McKinnie! He’s average ALL AROUND. #Vikings #StribVikes #vikingschat
4:40 pm mnvikingschat: @MNSportsCrap What do you think of putting Shanopotomous & Mills on the field at the same time? #Vikings #vikingschat
4:40 pm MNSportsCrap: #vikingschat I hate to be defending McKinnie, but he isn’t so average when you compare him to the league. #vikingschat
4:40 pm mnvikingschat: @Soopafreak Sad, isn’t it? #McKinnie #LostPotential #Vikings #vikingschat
4:41 pm MNSportsCrap: #mnvikingschat Just staying healthy at LT makes you above average…and he’s better than a lot of the guys who play. #vikingschat
4:41 pm Soopafreak: 4 sure, and sad that PA is such a homer and actually defends him RT @mnvikingschat: @Soopafreak Sad, isn’t it? #McKinnie #vikingschat
4:41 pm mnvikingschat: @MNSportsCrap He is when you compare him to WHAT WE DESERVE!! 🙂 #Vikings #vikingschat
4:41 pm MNSportsCrap: @mnvikingschat #vikingschat I like playing with an extra TE (Mills)! Sometimes that will be instead of Logan, go 4 it! #vikingschat
4:42 pm mattlechner: @MNSportsCrap he is better than most he’s paid an awful lot to be avg. #Vikingschat
4:43 pm pab8484: Hope the Vikings can show us something tonight!! #vikingschat
4:43 pm mattlechner: Shank will need to play a less traditional TE role with Rice out. Like Shank and Mills on the field at same time #Vikingschat
4:44 pm mnvikingschat: @pab8484 Thanks for joining! I don’t know how much of a test it will be though. Seahawks have some injuries. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:45 pm mnvikingschat: @mattlechner Especially with Favre at QB: He loves his TEs. With both Shank & Mills’ ability to beat LBs…. Like! #Vikings #vikingschat
4:47 pm Soopafreak: @mattlechner only issue with them on the field together is that it is a tip off to pass plays, no way they run out of that #Vikingschat
4:47 pm mnvikingschat: What can we get for Sage? Who needs QBs? #Vikings #vikingschat
4:48 pm mnvikingschat: @Soopafreak @mattlechner – True, that. #vikingschat
4:48 pm Soopafreak: AZ sure could use one. Too bad they dont have Anquan B RT @mnvikingschat: What can we get for Sage? Who needs QBs? #Vikings #vikingschat
4:48 pm mnvikingschat: @justjudyblog Send me a link to them. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:50 pm mnvikingschat: I’m afraid we’re gonna get a 6th round pick for Rosenfels. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:50 pm mattlechner: Sage is not valuable anymore to other teams. They know Vikes need to get rid of QB. Lucky to get 7th rounder #Vikingschat
4:50 pm MNSportsCrap: #vikingschat I think Sage needs to go this week or his value will plummet. SF and MIA seem to like our old qbs?!? #vikingschat
4:51 pm mnvikingschat: @MNSportsCrap @mattlechner Or maybe the 49ers? Giants? Raiders? Bucs? #vikingschat
4:52 pm mattlechner: Az needs one, 49ers, Packers, Bills #Vikingschat
4:52 pm keithprivette: Give up Sage keep Webb! RT @MattLechner: Az needs one, 49ers, Packers, Bills #Vikingschat
4:53 pm mnvikingschat: Predictions? Who’s going to shine and who’s gonna have a tough night at the office tonight? #Vikings #vikingschat
4:53 pm poonanner: RT @mnvikingschat: I’m afraid we’re gonna get a 6th round pick for Rosenfels. #Vikings #vikingschat >> me too.
4:54 pm mnvikingschat: @keithprivette Thanks for joining, Keith! …You contrarian #SageInsteadOfWebb #vikingschat
4:54 pm mattlechner: Jared Allen will dominate tonight against back up Seattle tackle #vikingschat
4:55 pm mattlechner: I expect entire D to play well #vikingschat
4:55 pm keithprivette: Do something smart: I am starting a #KeepWebb social campaign! The #vikings need all the help they can get making QB decisions #vikingschat
4:55 pm Soopafreak: I am keep #SageinsteadofTJack @mnvikingschat: @keithprivette #SageInsteadOfWebb #vikingschat
4:56 pm mnvikingschat: My Defense predicts: Cook has a big game, seals the deal. Tough day: M. Williams takes another bad angle. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:56 pm Soopafreak: Dang well better against these scrubs RT @mattlechner: I expect entire D to play well #vikingschat
4:56 pm mnvikingschat: RT @keithprivette: I am starting a #KeepWebb social campaign! The #vikings need all the help they can get making QB decisions #vikingschat
4:56 pm MNSportsCrap: #vikingschat All Day will shine if he plays tonight (I know that’s not a revelation, but it’s an honest prediction). #vikingschat
4:57 pm mattlechner: @Soopafreak TJack may have more value. Crazy as it sounds. #vikingschat
4:57 pm keithprivette: #WebbinsteadOfSage long term! RT @mnvikingschat: @keithprivette Thanks for joining, Keith! …You contrarian #SageInsteadOfWebb #vikingschat
4:57 pm MNSportsCrap: @mnsportscrap @keithprivette #vikingschat Destroy Webb’s value online, then we can get him on practice squad! #vikingschat
4:58 pm mnvikingschat: I’ll take that! RT @keithprivette #WebbinsteadOfSage long term! #Vikings #vikingschat
4:58 pm Soopafreak: we said this last week but again, Madiu should not be a starter RT @mnvikingschat Tough day M. Williams takes another bad angle #vikingschat
4:58 pm keithprivette: Get more for #sage than #tjack RT @Soopafreak: I am keep #SageinsteadofTJack @mnvikingschat: @keithprivette #SageInsteadOfWebb #vikingschat
4:58 pm mnvikingschat: #NefariousPlots RT @MNSportsCrap: @keithprivette #vikingschat Destroy Webbs value online to get him on practice squad! #vikingschat
4:58 pm MNSportsCrap: @mattlechner @soopafreak #vikingschat TJack does have more value. More value to Chilly!! (Why?) #vikingschat
4:59 pm mnvikingschat: @Soopafreak I couldn’t agree more but it appears we have no one to replace him. #Vikings #vikingschat
4:59 pm mkiedrowski: @derickson Have to get new gloves for this afternoon, so missing #Vikingschat #TwinCitiesTouchFootball http://tweetphoto.com/41938173
4:59 pm mattlechner: @MNSportsCrap lol. Chilly loves him because he can control him #vikingschat
5:00 pm Soopafreak: IALTO! so true RT @MNSportsCrap @mattlechner @soopafreak #vikingschat TJack does have more value. More value to Chilly!! (Why?)
5:01 pm mnvikingschat: Thanks everyone for joining this week’s #VikingsChat – Tell your friends: Every Sat at 11 AM CST. #vikingschat
5:01 pm Soopafreak: @mnvikingschat yeah we do, Tyrell Johnson #vikingschat
5:01 pm WarehouseMedia: Smart. RT @keithprivette Give up Sage keep Webb! *I like Sage over TJack, but Sage is more valuable in trade market. #Vikingschat
5:01 pm mnvikingschat: I’ll set up a gameday #VkingsChat tonight, too. #vikingschat
5:02 pm GRLitman: They will. Know they can’t sneak through waivers. RT @keithprivette I am starting a #KeepWebb social campaign! #vikings #vikingschat
5:03 pm Soopafreak: @WarehouseMedia i don’t think either has any value at this point #Vikingschat
5:03 pm mnvikingschat: @mkiedrowski You’re a cruel man, Mike! Gameday #VikingsChat tonight at 7 PM CST. #Vikings #StribVikes #vikingschat

5:05 pm keithprivette: RT @WarehouseMedia: Smart. RT @keithprivette Give up Sage keep Webb! *I like Sage over TJack, but Sage is more valuable in trade market. #Vikingschat
5:06 pm Soopafreak: watching Last years game in Lamb-o. I forgot how we shut them down in the 1st half. Only pts they got was off the bad snap. #vikingschat
5:07 pm WarehouseMedia: @Soopafreak Perhaps. The best decision is keeping all four QBs and letting Webb return punts. #VikingsChat
5:07 pm Soopafreak: for as good as Rodgers and his O have looked they might want to remember they could do nothing vs our D #vikingschat
5:07 pm keithprivette: Hey @WarehouseMedia @grlitman can #tjack catch the ball? We need help on WR front and he is athletic…maybe or crazy? #vikingschat
5:09 pm mattlechner: Thanks again for the chat. I’ll check in tonight during game. Skol #vikingschat
5:10 pm Soopafreak: @WarehouseMedia don’t know how much work he has got at punt returns would be tough at this point to start #VikingsChat
5:10 pm mnvikingschat: OMG! RT @mkiedrowski RT @TheOnion Tony Dungy On Meeting W/ Rex Ryan: ‘That F*ing C*s*r Is A Good Sh*t’ http://onion.com/bN3sIO #Vikingschat
5:10 pm WarehouseMedia: @keithprivette @GRLitman Webb should be returning punts and kickoffs if Percy is unable to go …keep all four QBs! #SKOL #VikingsChat
5:19 pm WarehouseMedia: @GRLitman Keeping all four QBs gives us the most options/athletes this year AND builds for the future @KeithPrivette #VikingsChat
5:21 pm keithprivette: Agree! RT @WarehouseMedia: @GRLitman Keeping all four QBs gives us the most options/athletes this year & builds for the future #VikingsChat
