Re: NFL Top 100 of 2017

#36- Adam Thielen- I'll be the first to eat crow on Thielen. A few years back, I went back and forth with a few guys on here regarding Thielen. Granted, nobody on here thought he would be this good but some had more confidence in him than I did. I was definitely wrong about him but I'm sure glad he...

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

we got people on this board that have been fans longer than i have been alive. I was a few months old when they played in their last bowl.To say anything short of a bowl is a success is mind boggling.i'm tired of waiting. This is the most complete team on paper with the shiny new qb that I have eve...

Re: If we have to lose a young core player?

I agree, it was reported that he was seen speaking with Zimmer and absent a new deal is probably going to skip any voluntary aspects of the offseason. Smart move absent a contract, especially when you read stories about the few players who've torn ACLs already during OTAs. Man, I kind of feel for t...

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

This question underscores the biggest difference in attitude I have from many Vikings fans. To me, last year was a smashing success. We were coming off an incredibly disappointing 8-8 season that we had started 5-0. We lost our starting quarterback and promising running back. Yet we went 13-3 and ha...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

But how do you rate a draft? You give a grade based on the number of guys the GM finds that can step on the field Game 1 of the next season and start? Or even make an immediate impact? Or do you grade it based on the performance of those players over the life of their rookie contracts and whether t...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

We've seen teams "win" in the offseason and it not pan out on the field so I'm trying not to put too much stock into everything but right now it definitely feels like a let down. Hopefully camp and preseason changes things for the better. By "let down," do you mean the draft, or the entire offseaso...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I suspect that Shurmer was slightly better at OC than Defillipo, but I'm not sure. I strongly doubt Defillipo is far worse than Shurmer, so I'd rate this a push. I think that's fair. However, I also think we're going to be pleasantly surprised at what John DeFilippo can do with this offense. I've w...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I guess for me, it's about the rating the so-called experts are giving the Vikings on this draft. While I do wish we'd have addressed our need at guard, I'm not necessarily complaining about who we got. I just don't see this as an A- draft, as many analysts do. Look at last year, when we didn't even...

One of the beat writers (Tomasson?) called Kai to get his reaction and allegedly he hung up.
Maybe if Forbath hit more than 87% of his extra points, he'd have an argument.

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I keep reading these draft analyses that have the Vikings rated anywhere from A- to B, nothing lower. I'm usually pretty optimistic, but I don't get it. I could see Hughes playing some this year, but who else? The kicker Carlson, I suppose. Still think we've got a great team, with Cousins under cent...

Not a fan of drafting kickers. Hope he turns out to be worth it, though, cuz I'm also not a fan of Forbath.

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Strikes me as a smokescreen. You don't want to say, "this guy isn't going to play" to the media and fan base, and you don't want to say, "he's going to replace Trae Waynes". Easier to say, "maybe we can find room on the field for all of them". That's possible. I think it's a mix of making sure that...

Re: Diggs Miracle TD

One of the reasons this was such a great moment, is even people that aernt football or Vikings fan saw it and love it. A lot of relatives i have done watch football at all, but they all talked to me about it, and how exciting it was. I dont remember any other play by a MN sports team that did that,...

Re: 2018 Schedule

Did you guys see New England's schedule? It's ridiculous. All their tough games except for Jacksonville are at home. I can't stand that team. This is a pretty tough schedule that we have. No surprise, given our record last year. Even the opener against the 49ers is no picnic. Hopefully our defense ...
