Re: Easton Out for the Year

I think Easton is underrated. He rarely gets called for a penalty and doesn't get beat as often as others. He is very good. I'm certain they will get a replacement somehow. Someone mentioned Berger. Is he ready to play? Has he kept in shape? Easton is good pass blocking but below average run blocki...

Inside Laquon Treadwell's Redemption Tour

Great read on Treadwell. I haven't given up on him. He's been having a great camp. After taking hold of the No. 3 receiver role with a strong spring, Treadwell is starring in his own redemption biopic in training camp. He's making catch-of-the-day worthy plays against the league's top defense. At th...

Re: What Does Everyone Think About Trading for an O-Lineman?

Hes not. Hes solide as a rb but his pass blocking need tremendous work. Hes also light in the ####. Those two reasons are why he was not toted guy. What? Collins is an OT/G. He's upwards of 300 pounds now. The only question seems to be pass blocking. I'm going to be focusing on him during the prese...

Re: Ravens' Eric Weddle says RPOs are a fad that will be gone from football in five years

Weddle thinks RPOs will be gone from the league fairly soon, just like the Wildcat Read more I dunno. They seem more effective with the right type of QB and weapons. It feels like less of a gimmick play. I'll be interested to see how Cousins does. I don't think he's that great of an athlete, nor pa...

Re: Game Preview: Vikings at Broncos

Would you guys play Cousins at all behind this line? Even for a series. I really don't see the upside.

Watching Jets falcons. Bridgewater looks sharp so far. I still see him wearing purple. Sigh.
I feel you.

I only can really watch Vikings preseason. Other teams, save for a player or two, don't really interest me. Maybe the third games I'll be more interested.

Re: Easton Out for the Year

I've been reading a lot of good buzz around Aviante Collins out of camp. Maybe he could be the guy. Nice write-up below.

Zimmer said Barr had a tweak and he's not being traded. He should be out there today.

Good article on Jaleel

“He’s improved a lot,” head coach Mike Zimmer said. “I think one of the biggest things is he was a wrestler, so he wanted to get into wrestling matches with guys as opposed to locking him out and playing the gap he’s supposed to be in.” The Vikings hope Johnson has plenty of reasons to dance this s...

Re: 2018 Training Camp Thread

I am under the assumption that something is up here. He is watching everyone around him get paid, and he is sitting there with his hand out looking for his. Is it possible (assuming here) that he is possibly traded soon, maybe for some offensive line help or possible pick? The whole situation seems...
