The "like" system has *finally* been implemented and seems to be working. Please let me know if you see any problems or have any suggestions.

Thanks!

Re: What is your minimum definition of success for the 2018-19 season?

I get the angst. I just refuse to court it. We get to enjoy the football season once a year. I'm not going to let the lack of a SB win ruin what should be an otherwise enjoyable part of the fall/early winter. There is enough crap in life to be upset about. I refuse to allow football to be in that c...

Re: What is your minimum definition of success for the 2018-19 season?

This post really resonates with me. Every year 31 teams do not win the superbowl. It is important to recognize that the NFL is first and foremost entertainment. To me it is basically a 4 month carnival ride. I choose to enjoy that ride for what it has to offer each season. Last year was one of the ...

Re: What is your minimum definition of success for the 2018-19 season?

I chose "Make it to the divisional round" but I wouldn't quite phrase it that way because my minimum definition of success for the Vikings this season is a postseason win and, if they don't advance further, a good, competitive showing in a subsequent loss. In other words, if they earn a bye as they ...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Did you get to see Compton play much for the Bears? I only watched him against the Vikings and I can say he didn't stick out like a sore thumb. There is a good chance he starts. Isadora against the Browns was truly a mess. Gosset, Andrews and O'neil are the wild cards. I suppose Aviante Collins cou...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

At this point, how do you think you would arrange the 2018 starting OL for the Vikings using the players currently on the roster? Or if you'd rather, who do you predict to be starting along the OL in Week 1? I haven't seen much (or any) of some of those players yet so it's hard to say how I would a...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

At the end of the day, Spielman's job is tied to Cousins. If Cousins flops, Spielman will be gone. Didn't people say that about Spielman, Zimmer and Bridgewater too? Rick's got more lives than a cat. :) He spent 3 first round draft picks on QBs in 7 years, none of them are still with the team and h...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Thats probably true, although it sounds like they were hyped over Ragnow, and I would bet if Quenton Nelson were somehow available at 30, he would have taken him. Its probably not quite so concrete as to make it a rule, but I have no doubt you are correct in terms of Spielman generally believing it...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I agree Jim - it's not Spielman's style to go with guards early, probably because very few guards are usually taken in the 1st round of most drafts. It is not a position that typically finds a lot of love in the 1st for most GM's. But still, to suggest that Spielman would see a legit need at a posi...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I think if Spielman and Zimmer really thought the offensive line was in dire straits at even one position, they would have addressed it by now in free agency or via a trade. Considering their history, that's a generous assumption. If they thought any of the offensive linemen available at #30 was an...

Re: New Kickoff Rules

I'm not pessimistic on Hughes when it comes to that pick. Hughes, based on what we know now, should be an upgrade over Alexander and might also help in the return game. The issue I have is they neglected other significant areas of need in order to take him and that leave a bad taste in the mouth. I...

Re: New Kickoff Rules

I think so too. When I read this part; I thought about our first round pick and his added value in that role. It also makes me wonder what Patterson might do this year. It also makes me wonder if Bill Belichick had a pretty good idea this was the direction things were going. If so, that would be go...
