Re: Lions @ Vikings Game Day Discussion Thread -- Week 9

walsh is walshed up IMO....but to need the leverage of an extra point to beat the lions at home a week after being dismantled by the 1-6 bears is far more alarming than anything walsh has or hasn't done. you guys are going on for pages about a missed extra point costing them a home game against the ...

Re: Zimmer: Teddy Bridgewater needs to refine mechanics

Any GM and/or HC who is not trying to be the very best they can be in all 3 phases of the game would not have jobs. - Duh...the championship teams will likely rank high in all 3 of those phases.(exceptions are the rule) Why all this crap about some magical formula for winning a superbowl? You beat t...

Re: Who's better than the Vikings?

I'm not ready to knock the receiving corp just yet, with or without Wallace. A trio of Cotchery, Ginn and a guy named Brown just started in the SB on the league's best offense. Meanwhile the ability of their TE opened up a lot of opportunity for them. IMO, there is no real way to even properly diagn...

Re: The case for keeping Mike Wallace

I'm all for the possession WR....don't care if he's all that big. Even a guy like Welker would be a boon.
I have a hard time trying to grok why Wallace would play here for less money?

Re: What the Vikings (and fans) can learn from SB 50

That's not fair. I watched the game and commented to people in the room many times that Cam looked rattled. He played horribly. It was obvious not only after the game, but while it was happening. And honestly, it surprised me quite a bit. The way he's been playing, especially in the playoffs, I did...

Re: What the Vikings (and fans) can learn from SB 50

Bright spot? He was missing open receivers, throughout the entire game. Even when his line, and receivers, did their job....he failed to. I'll amend my take and include Olsen as another bright spot. I'm not saying Newton played lights out....I'm saying pretty much the entire Panther offense didn't ...

Re: Who's better than the Vikings?

Better at what? ;) They have yet to score an offensive TD against Seattle in two tries and have beaten GB once since Zimmer was hired. Any given sunday.... I think there is a solid handful of teams capable of winning it all. Getting there is the hardest part. Winning that one game is just like any o...

Re: What the Vikings (and fans) can learn from SB 50

@Jim The point you and Kapp made about Cam and AD being over burdened by their teams is significant. TB got called out after the first Seattle tilt for being scared. After that game his whole demeanor changed for the rest of the year....it didn't change what he needs to work on fundamentally but it ...

Re: What the Vikings (and fans) can learn from SB 50

I just can't buy into the notions that Newton completely crumbled under pressure nor the Broncos won the game easily. Sounds a little like confirmation bias to me. Newton is easy to dislike. Newton was the lone bright spot on the enitre Panther offense. It wasn't an MVP type performance and he did g...

Re: What the Vikings (and fans) can learn from SB 50

@Kapp Looking at your exchange with Jim, I see the common ground regarding Newton, when you compare his teams reliance on him vs the Vikes and AD. I agree and I don't really see that as Newton's issue. The Broncos talent highlighted that shortcoming...much tha same way Seattle highlighted it for Vik...

Re: Adrian Peterson -- The elephant in the room

@Kapp Those are good points about the philosophy rather than just missing on talent. My beef with Spielman is along the long and at QB. Obviously, QB is hard....enough said lol The line has been the issue of guys later in the draft not panning out. (Kalil was a good pick, but he was someone i coulda...

Re: What the Vikings (and fans) can learn from SB 50

@Kapp I just not buying into the rush to castigate Newton. He made numerous throws after the strip sack....predominantly in the 3rd qtr, that were incredible. I don't disagree that he got a rattled look about him at times, but he was a blown call on the first in)completion to Cotchery and an incredi...

Re: Adrian Peterson -- The elephant in the room

Ahh...but camels do not have hooves, which is why the phrase camel toe exists.
However, I do believe the correct term for the upper midwest in North Amercia is 'moose knuckle'..but I digress.

Re: What the Vikings (and fans) can learn from SB 50

Don't turn the ball over against good teams is what I learned. I'm not convinced the Broncos D was any 'better' than the Panthers D last night....Miller stood out casuing the fumbles for sure. The Broncos got some bounces in what was a very close game...and the Panthers left some plays out there for...

Re: Cordarrelle Patterson

He's absolutely amazing with the ball in his hands. A major weapon being mostly squandered for whatever reason. It's a shame.
