A stark reminder

Standard

According to Fox’s Jay Glazer, via Pro Football Talk, former Buffalo Bills quarterback JP Losman has signed with the Seattle Seahawks.

Losman is a stark reminder of what one non move can do to a franchise.

By now most Bills fans have learned that former Bills head coach Gregg Williams wanted to trade up for quarterback Drew Brees, but they couldn’t find someone to trade up with and lost out on Brees.

That set forth a tragic series of events that have sent the Bills to the catacombs of the National Football League.

Now, with a new general manager and head coach that are good at what they do there is some hope.

In the end, there is some light at the end of the tunnell.

Vikings look to be done in Minnesota

Standard

The Minnesota Vikings have been pushing Minnesota’s state government for a new stadium for four years now.

However, it looks like the Vikings are done in Minnesota.

According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Vikings have issued a four page statement with the last sentence being, “This solution must be finalized in the 2011 session.”

The problem will be the reaction from Minnesota’s government as it will most likely anger them and make them decide not to do a deal at all.

The better solution would have been Vikings owner Ziggy Wilf calling up Minnesota’s governor Tim Pawlenty and let them know his stance privately.

Also, usually going public with a problem in the middle of negotiations are deal breakers.

In the end, the Vikings will be moving to Los Angeles soon.
