07:57 AM ET 09.21 | Though statistics may suggest otherwise, Bernard Berrian insists all is good with his chemistry in the passing game. In a cryptic and curt four-minute interview in the Winter Park locker room Monday, Berrian talked about his situation -- and in doing so, he might have created as many questions as answers. Berrian said he "definitely" believes too much blame is being placed on him from outside the organization when it comes to the team's early-season passing struggles. But he said "no" when asked if the same held true when it came to pressure from inside the team. And then Berrian added, "From position coaches? No." He did not elaborate on whether that meant he believed there was internal pressure coming from elsewhere.

Another NFC team that's in disarray.

and may that good chemistry continue the rst of the year so that we can finally be rid of the annointed one.

Yea, I'm loosing my @#$ on the picks this year. This parity stuff is no good.

I always hated chemistry. I was more of a home ec guy. Lots of ladies in those classes.

C'mon. Lab coats are sexier than aprons any day. Why, Deanna Favre was seen shopping for lab coats at Kohls just the other day.

My grandson is taking cooking classes. He's tired of his mom's cooking.

Poor girl can't boil water... Still love her though.

Yum, tiramisu. But it's the road to a physique like Mangina or Big Rex.

Minnesota has nobody to blame but themselves. They should have realized that they were being fleeced by this guy the minute they signed him to number one receiver money. There is a reason that the Bears, who have searched high and low for a number one, let this guy walk. He's a speedy guy with no hands or ball skills and an ego. They should have learned their lesson after Troy Williamson blew up in their face. At least he wasn't a talker.

The lack of chemistry starts with the HC and QB. On the sideline Sunday, Childress was talking a blue streak at Favre, who was just staring off into space and nodding distractedly, all but openly ignoring the guy. It seems there was some truth to those rumors about Favre disrespecting his coach's knowledge of offense. Not on the same page? They don't seem to be in the same library.

Soooo...what do you think the last book those two guys read was?

This whole rabid media always looking to spin insignificant crap into a $#!* storm is really getting old. Where is Howard Cossell when we need him. He never speculated on a non story and he never wore tight jeans in the locker room. A little journalistic integrity would be a nice change.

"Planning for Retirement" by Merrill Lynch.

Yuck. Good thing I'm eating melon for breakfast. Oatmeal would have been a mess on my keyboard.

These two will be baking turnovers sooner rather than later.

This could have been worse. The headline could have read "Vikings staff going down on Berrian". Give the interns some credit.
