The Vikings have released their inactive list for tonight’s game vs. the Bears, and it contains one huge shocker.

No, not that Brett Favre is active and starting, because we half-expected that (though Joe Webb can’t be happy about that, by the way). Instead, RB Adrian Peterson is INACTIVE and won’t play.

That means Toby Gerhart should get the bulk of the carries at RB. Peterson had been questionable with a thigh injury, but it was assumed by just about everybody in the world that he would play tonight.

NoNFL coach gives a crap about your fantasy team. If you start to pay the coaches and get the authority to fire them - then they will listen. I think it's hilarious that people's fantasy teams are losing because of a last-minure decision by someone not to play. It points to a glaring weakness in your fantasy football rules.

When the coach of the team says he's going to play and he don't, that's not whining.  It's called trusting that the coach knows what he's doing.  Apparently not!!  Thanks for costing many, many people their FF leagues.

It's too bad Farve had to play this one. I really hope he was getting way too much pressure to NOT start the third string quarterback. That Bears defense is going to CRUSH him.

Great, the Bears get a chance to break that old man into little pieces tonight.  He should've followed Adrian Peterson's lead and stayed out of this one.  Farve, don't you know old men break their hips when they fall hard?  Go back to sending pictures of your junk to reporters you want to get it on with, Mr. media darling.  For all you whiny Packer fans rooting for the Bears to lose, you should've handled your business the last two weeks.  Chicago has owned this egomaniac the last few years and payback is SWEET!  You're going down CLOWN!!
