Re: Viking QB Options 2018: Tracker

I have a feeling this comparison will become fairly irrelevant by week 8. Unless something amazing happens with one of the other three.

Re: Vikings vs. Bill's Pregame Thread

This is a classic "Trap Game" especially with TNF in LA looming against the current NFC media darling Rams. Zimmer seems to do a decent job of keeping his squad focused for games like this though. The "egg laying" games have usually been against more quality opposition. Heck as fan this is an easy o...

Re: Brian O'Neil surprises

I'm glad he did well, but now teams will have tape to prepare for him where the Packers did not. Time will tell once he goes through NFL scheming and readjustment.

Re: George Iloka

The fact that he hasn't seen much playing time yet isn't really surprising. With the exception of Hughes, everyone else in the Secondary has 3+ years of experience in this Defense with this group of personnel and coaches. Iloka, while having lots of past history with Zimmer just doesn't have the sam...

Re: Where is the Elite Defense?

I've been commenting on it for 2 weeks now... First and probably most important comment: It is week 2. Sharpness will come with time. That being said, the open field tackling has been an issue and needs to get cleaned up. Pass Rush has been streaky, need to be more consistent. Coverage has also been...

Re: Inside Laquon Treadwell's Redemption Tour

My guess is that Treadwell will be on very thin ice after yesterday and REALLY needs to have a bounce back performance. He won't last long if he is a turnover risk, Zimmer will NOT allow it. Also, seeing what a disaster his game was yesterday justifies some of what many have thought was this teams h...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

I realize on this board some posters defend every and anything that the front office or a player does.. until that person leaves the organization. There are no mistakes in Vikingland. Um what? I've been here since Mike Tice and there are others who have been here even longer than that. There has be...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

i neglected to mention my complete disgust with Treadwell. Coley wasn't much better, he made the same mistake on a slant route, he was just lucky that his didn't turn into an INT. I suspect there will be a lot of time spent on slants / the jug machine and a lot of time on open field tackling during ...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

Here's a really simplistic, non-scientific take on your take. Forbath missed 5 XPs last year, which cost us 5 points. Carlson missed 3 FGs yesterday, which cost us 9 points. For the record, Forbath is still available out there. So is Dan Bailey. I'm not saying I'm happy with how things have gone, j...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

My post game thoughts: Biggest positive: We have a legit QB. Not just some game manger guy and not some one year lightning in a bottle guy. We've got an elite passer with some dog in him. He isn't some guy who is old either, he is in his prime. Thielen and Diggs are elite. Cook and Murray are a stro...

Re: Vikings @ Packers Pregame Thread

Amen. I get so sick of the media. Sports Illustrated actually has them THIRD in their latest power rankings. It's such a freaking slobber-fest for Rodgers, as if he can win games all by himself. Ted Thompson is proving that theory wrong year after year, yet year after year they're picked as a Super...

Re: Vikings @ Packers Pregame Thread

Aaron Rodgers is a whiny b*tch that got injured and did his stupid Aaron Rodgers thing to win the game. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to bed feeling great that the Packers were behind in the 4th quarter only to see in the morning they ended up winning. There's no conspiracy here. He's l...

Re: Vikings @ Packers Pregame Thread

I left that one out, you are right. I felt the 3rd and short in the red zone where they threw it instead of running for a 1st down was even more pathetic. They gave Roger over 40 seconds of time back, plus let them keep the 2 minute warning. If they had gained like 12 inches it would have been 1st a...
