Zimmer Explains Goals, Reasons for Hosting Jaguars Joint Practices

You’ve got the same routine,” Zimmer said. “And I think the intensity level will be up a little bit because guys are going against each other. But we’re not trying to prove who’...

Re: Preseason Week 1 Post Game Thoughts

“Mike did a lot of good things,” Edwards said. “The attention to detail that he displayed schematically with what we’re asking him to do, for a rookie, was impressive for the first outing. We just look for him to keep continuing to compete every day and keep working on the fundamentals and techniqu...

Mike Zimmer: Laquon Treadwell getting fresh start with Kirk Cousins

<r>Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell‘s first two seasons with the Vikings have not featured the kind of production expected from a first-round pick, but his spot on the depth chart suggests he’ll have a chance to turn things around in his third season. That chance could be aided by playing with a quart...

If you have another one drop, I'll join too!
Will do. If we get enough interest I may expand the league to 14 teams.

I am in again for this year Cliff. I posted in the league as well. Sorry for the late response.
It's all good.

We've got 11 of the 12 people from last year back. Fullwood looks to round out the league. I sent him the link but don't think he's looked at it yet.

Re: Preseason Week 1 Post Game Thoughts

To be fair, Adam didn't have a catch either. Yes, Laquon played more snaps but I'm guessing Kirk has a better trust with Treadwell than the 2nd and 3rd string QBs . I've also read that Treadwell was open a few times, the td play to diggs for example. I think he's going to have a good year. I hope s...
