I wish things had worked out differently with Teddy. If he can stay healthy I really think he can do great things.
I don't know why, but watching Teddy gives me more confidence than watching Kirk. I'm always waiting for Kirk to do something stupid. I don't know why.

Re: How do you feel about watching the preseason?

Cliff...don't. Teddy looks really good and is excelling once again on important things like pocket presence, accuracy, decision-making, pressure, third downs. I worry about Cousins on some of these things. I hope Teddy starts somewhere this year.

Fantastic article with Rhodes

https://www.1500espn.com/vikings-2/2018/08/xavier-rhodes-loves-passing-every-test/ Hands? “Inside,” Rhodes responds. “Gotta be quick because you don’t want him to knock your hands down before you even shoot ’em, once you do that, you lose leverage. If you lose leverage, he gets on top of you and sta...

Re: 2018 Training Camp Thread

Some camp takeaways from the bloggers over the last few days:

-O'Neil isn't as behind as originally thought. Some speculation he may be as good or better than Hill at this point. He's someone really progressing

-Hughes is going to be really good. Because he already is.

-Murray is faster this year

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.
