Vikings cut Rhett Bomar, nine others

The Vikings have come a long way over the past six months in terms of their quarterback situation. That's good news for Minnesota fans. And it's bad news for Rhett Bomar, who was one of 10 Vikings players cut on "Black Monday" (we're guessing it'll eventually be called that anyway).

Teams have until 4 p.m. EST on Tuesday to get their rosters down to 80 players and early Monday the Vikings did some of the dirty work necessary to get down to the magic number.

That dirty work was basically chopping 10 players from the roster, including Bomar who, in all seriousness, believed he could be the Vikings quarterback of the future no less than eight months ago. Of course, in the time since Bomar was signed from the Giants practice squad, Minny has added Christian Ponder via the draft and Donovan McNabb via trade. With Joe Webb also on the roster, Bomar became expendable.

He was cut along with offensive lineman Conan Amituanai, tight end Ed Barham, defensive backs Simeon Castille and Chris Adingupu, linebackers Kyle O’Donnell and Jonathan Gilmore, wide receiver Andre Holmes, kicker Nate Whitaker and defensive lineman Colby Whitlock.

Vikings cut Rhett Bomar, nine others

I don't live anywhere near MN - so therefore I don't see their TV casts or news print - but isn't anyone else even remotely amazed at just how far this team has fallen and just how quickly it has happened?!?!?  The top pick of the SB in 2009... a top 5 pick contender for the SB in 2010... yet most people's pick for the bottom of the NFC North in 2011.

I guess wh*ring oneself out to the Favre train builds a lot of bad karma.
