Around the NFL Blogosphere

Minnesota Vikings (Wikipedia)Since the NFL season is now in full swing, we’ll be running this feature pretty often. That, and on Tuesdays there typically isn’t much, if any, Chiefs news.

Today’s top NFL links:

If you’re looking to get to know this week’s opponents, the Minnesota Vikings, our sister site The Viking Age is a great place to start. Daily Norseman, Pacifist Viking, Skol Vikes, The Ragnarok and Vikings Frenzy are also blogs that do a great job covering the Vikes. And don’t worry — we plan on letting Dan from TVA and his readers have it this week. Go Chiefs!

So much for that Byron Leftwich pipe dream. He’s the next QB in line to replace Michael Vick (how many are we going to go through?). – The Falcoholic

Ancient kicker Morten Anderson has also re-joined the Falcons. – Larry Brown Sports

Chad Johnson talks about his jersey reeking of beer after the receiver’s TD-celebrating leap into the Dog Pound. – The NFL Guru

What’s more remarkable: The Redskins sitting at 2-0, while the Eagles are 0-2? Or young ‘Skins QB Jason Campbell looking more like Donovan McNabb than McNabb himself? No. 5 even got booed by the hometown Philly fans last night. Ouch. – Riggo’s Rag

It seems that McNabb even thinks he’s booed because he’s black. Wake up. You’re booed because you’ve been underachieving so far, and you play in Philly, the city that once cheered when it looked like Michael Irvin’s neck was broken. And white QBs draw ire, too. Just look at Damon Huard and Rex Grossman. – With Leather

Detroit Lions fans are so ecstatic about the team’s hot start that they are using Prince songs to help convey their enthusiasm. 2-0, Let’s Go Crazy! Did our two teams trade places? Or do the Raiders and Vikings just blow that bad? Given that we still have three games remaining against said cupcakes, let’s hope for the latter. – The Ghosts of Wayne Fontes

And while I’m on the Lions, did anyone else read that QB Jon Kitna said that God miracled him back into the game last Sunday after a concussion. Wow? This is the same guy who said that he was going to throw for 50 TDs this year. Only 46 more to go, Jon! – Deadspin

DT Tank Johnson is a Cowboy. With Jerry Jones penchant for taking on troubled-but-talented players, this move surprised nobody. – Blogging the Boys
