It's Vikings week, still! I don't have much commentary this time, so here are some links.
- It's Wednesday, so I have some power rankings for you. In ESPN, we stay 5. At CBS, we move to 4. Hooray! We're in the top 13% of teams!
- Sadly, Shaun Smith is likely to return to the Bengals to fill the gargantuan void left by DT Domata Peko's absence due to knee surgery, says James Walker. Peko will be back for the Playoffs, whew.
- Scott Priestle tells us the deets about Peko's status. He also tells us that Carson is ready for the ridiculous crowd noise at the Metrodome.
- He ALSO tells us that Palmer and his wide receivers are out of sync. I agree, but it's interesting to see it from the perspective of a journalist and his access to professional athletes we love.
- Joe Reedy was a busy man, and he brings us much news. First, he tells us about the beloved Zimmer and his preparations for the Favres. Good read. His notes for the off-day include talks about penalty problems, Shaun Smith, and the playoffs.
