Re: 2014 NFL Draft Discussion Thread - Round 1

One note. Think of the type of prospect that Ponder was. Teddy is heads and shoulders above where he was. We got a deal. I was hoping for Carr, but all these guys are a role of the dice. Also really pleased with the Barr pick. I think he's gonna be amazing. Now just pray our DBs stay healthy. We may...

Re: Cassell era begins...

personally i am frustrated by the signing. when your primary qb goes down, your season is probably sunk. i don't see the need for a high paid back up and neither do most of the successful teams in the league. bad signing (for the price). I typically like speilman's move, but this comes with at least...

Re: 2013 Mock

the nice thing about the draft next year is that the vikings have quiet a few high priority needs which means they have some flexibility.

I could see them taking either a MLB, CB, WR, NT in round 1.

This is why I don't get his picks. He just needs to throw it away. This should be an easy thing to fix, so I still have faith in him.

Re: Postgame thoughts

rules question: when a QB is outside the tackle box they are allowed to throw the ball out of bounds not even close to a WR correct?

Re: Tom Powers gets it right

the vikings were anything but erratic today. they were consistent at playing poorly outside of their regular playmakers. they could not convert on third down as an offense and not shutting down indy on third downs. erratic play would be something to look forward to.

Re: Vikes/Colts post-game thoughts

Things that have potential for this team Ponder may still be the guy We won't know because Musgrave won't call a pass more then 5 yards till the 4th quarter. Ponder makes the majority of the passes asked of him by his coordinator. Ponder makes the throws to his first and second read at a good rate....

Re: Vikings VS Colts Predictions

1. colby fleener will have a complete field day out there. he will abuse our LBs.,, which will be a common thread of many teams this year. We do not have the system or LBs to cover todays TEs 2. Look for a lot of short and intermediate routes to test our D in coverage. Bend don't break does not put ...

Re: What does Frazier need to do

By the way, I am pretty impressed with people's responses on this board to this question. 11 out of 17 are giving Frazier quiet a fair chance at this year. I wonder if the more negative people post more often or if it's because we're not in the middle of a really bad year that the votes are coming i...

Re: What does Frazier need to do

If the team still had the "Triangle of Authority" configuration I would say it's a sure thing Frazier gets a third year, but now that Spielman is running the show I'm not so sure. That's a really interesting point. I wonder how much authority Rick has in this instance. Could Rick, not Wilf be makin...

Re: What does Frazier need to do

I think what Frazier needs to do to keep his job is do a good job. :) In other words, he needs to field a team that's well-prepared, make good adjustments and decisions during games, avoid blowout losses, manage his personnel well, etc. I never like putting a win total on these things because injur...
