BerrianPosted by Josh Katzowitz

What do you get when you combine a receiver who’s made exactly two catches in the first four games of the season with a Twitter user who insulted a Minnesota state legislator who happens to be a permanently-injured war veteran who also has been a big supporter of a new stadium for the Vikings? You get a deactivated Bernard Berrian.

It sounds like his benching could be a punishment for his Twitter war with state legislator John Kriesel. After Kriesel ripped Berrian after Berrian complained on his feed about not being targeted enough by Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb, Berrian responded by writing, “"Anytime u wanna watch the film with me. Not just one game but all of them. ... and if not sit down n shut up!!"

The problem with that exchange was that Kriesel has no legs, a fact Berrian didn’t know at the time. He later apologized to Kriesel, and Kriesel said he was not offended or upset by the exchange, saying, “I'm a big boy. I can handle myself. I ripped him, he ripped me back. We had it going back and forth on Twitter a little bit. I have fun with Twitter. I'm over it. I was never offended by it.”

But it seems like the Vikings organization was offended, particularly since the reason the exchange began was because Berrian was complaining about his role in the offense.

"I have talked to Bernard and we do ... matter of fact Bob (Hagan, the Vikings director of public relations) and some of our PR people actually talk with our team once we come to training camp," Frazier said this week, via ESPN 1500. "Just about social media and what our relationship should be with social media.

"It's something we've talked about, something we'll continue to deal with and talk about. Bernard kind of knows where we stand on that issue and we'll move on from there. ... We want to make sure that our focus is on football and trying to win football games. I think going forward he'll handle things the right way."

Berrian, from Fresno State surprised a lot of people with his strong performance earlier, but since being traded to the Vikings he has not been the same, largely because of a different offense and a new QB.  Donovan McNabb by his own admission has played awful.

Bernard Berrian has been the biggest disappointment in Minnesota since the North Stars fled to Dallas in the 90s.
