Vikings receiver Bernard Berrian engages in Twitter war with lawmaker/handicapped war veteran Courtesy: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d822cabc0/article/vikings-wr-berrian-in-twitter-war-with-veteran-of-real-one?module=HP11_headline_stack It's fair to say that frustration is boiling over in Minnesota, after the Vikings dropped to 0-4 Sunday with a 22-17 loss to the previously winless Kansas City Chiefs. After the game, Scout.com reported that veteran Minnesota receiver Bernard Berrian engaged in a Twitter war with a few people, among them a state lawmaker who has co-authored a bill to aid the construction of a new stadium for the team. After Berrian responded angrily to fans who criticized his production -- he has just two catches for 37 yards this season -- Rep. John Kriesel, R-Cottage Grove, chimed in. "If you want to follow a hilarious twitter account, try @B_Twice (Bernard Berrian) who says that he's open a lot and should get the ball more," Kriesel wrote on [Read more...]
Andrew Cangelose, KC SportsNation CHIEFS GRADES - Game 3 vs Chargers Matt Cassel - F Fumble on the play. The coaches are consistently calling running plays on 3rd and long. You don’t do that if you have a good quarterback. He played decently in the 2nd half but erased everything with a bullet pass into Eric Weddle’s crouch to end the game.
Matt Cassel – F Cassel is confirming what I’ve suspected for a long while. He’s not that good. Watching the two opposing quarterbacks we’ve played so far has me feeling like a jaded housewife locked into a passionless marriage longing for the strong arms of a Fitzpatrick or Stafford to sweep me away. In case you don’t get my point, I’d rather have about 28 other league quarterbacks right now over Matt Cassel. Jamal Charles' Knee - F I wish I could blame that damn Lions’ mascot but it appears the injury occurred before he rolled into that silly Lion. Sadly I would feel a little better if that mascot also tore his ACL.
Matt Cassel – D He collapses under pressure like a man being shot in community theatre. It reminds me of Elvis Grbac, but at least when Elvis did throw the ball he averaged more than 3 yards per completion. He remains a must start in PPR fantasy leagues because of his proficiency for catching his own batted passes. Jamal Charles – D He ran the ball okay when he got the chance, but anytime you put the ball on the ground you won’t get a passing grade from me.
