08:03 AM ET 11.12 | Pat Williams had strong words Thursday for the reporter whose unnamed sources spoke of Vikings players not playing for Brad Childress. NFL Network analyst Joe Theismann had even harsher words for those players quoted in the story. Theismann addressed the issue before Thursday's game. "You guys are gutless," Theismann said in a transcript provided by the network. "If you want to make a statement like that, put your name to it instead of hiding behind the term 'gutless.' So if you don't like the coach, tell him. If you're going to say it publicly, put your name to it because that just makes you wimpy and gutless in my mind. That whole organization is a ship that's coming apart."

Vegas odds have nothing to do with who they think will win. The odds are set to try to even out the betting so they make their %age for laying the bets without risk of paying out big regardless of the outcome.

I'll alert the media.

Whatever happened to honor and sportsmanship, anyway?

Childress should resign. Yeah, he's under contract. But look, he's not getting the job done, and even he knows it. Ziggy doesn't wan't to fire him, because they write the stupid contracts so that the coaches get paid even if they fail, lose and get the axe. But, if Chilly had any self-respect at all, he'd quit.

Good morning Orf, Otis.

A Minnesota Viking funeral, consists of a day at to beach with Diarrhea.

Brett's a double edge sword. he can play well at times, but the INTs are killing them. He's leading the league with 13 so far. He's #27 in terms of QB rating.

That sounds like a Randy Moss press conference to me, Count.

November 12, 2010  08:30 AM ET

And we've got more Spam than Carnival Cruise Lines, too.

Morning. It's the same thing, but with Randy there is no beach.

"You guys are gutless," Theismann said in a transcript provided by the [NFL] network.

The "unnamed sources" immediately contacted Lawrence Taylor and hired him to break Theismann's other leg.
