    Knee And Thigh Pads Making A Comeback! 

    According to Sports Now - Sports News From Los Angeles And Beyond, the NFL will require that all of its players wear knee and thigh pads by 2013. Most players stopped wearing knee and thigh pads years ago.  Here is a tribute to those and other fashionable pads NFL players used to wear!

    Vikings, Donovan McNabb And Veteran Quarterbacks

    The rumor mill has been heating up with trade talk between the Minnesota Vikings and the Washington Redskins for quarterback Donovan McNabb.  If the trade takes place, it won't be the first time the Vikings have started an NFL season knowing that their quarterback might be an older, veteran player - on the contrary, this seems to be "par for the course" for the Vikings.  Here is a list of the veteran quarterbacks that the Vikings have started since the 1980's:

    1987-1990: Tommy Kramer (started 15 games, was drafted in 1977) and Wade Wilson (started 29 games, was drafted in 1981)

    1990-1991: Wade Wilson (started 9 games)
