Re: 6th Round Pick (2)- Ade Aruna- DE, Tulane

Let's go Patterson. Seems like he's another Hunter freak. Pretty much what I thought when I read his profile a month back. I know nothing about him, it just read like the kind of DEs the Vikes have targeted under Zimmer. I had a suspicion they'd come out of this draft with one of Aruna, Lorenzo Car...

Re: 2nd Round Pick- Brian O'Neill- OL, Pittsburgh

His production gives me hope but I don't see where he fits. Too tall and not enough strength for guard. Very short wingspan for a tackle. His arm length keeps getting mentioned, I have no idea why. https://www.mockdraftable.com/player/brian-oneill I know it matters some, but it's not the end all be...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Wow! "Strengths: Size, effort. Weaknesses: Quickness, balance. Brian O’Neill is a tortoise coming off the line of scrimmage, forcing him to lunge and lose balance as he tries to compensate. He’ll raise injury liability premiums for his quarterback as a left tackle but could be a stopgap on the righ...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Thread

Where is this stuff coming from? I swear what I heard Mayok say was great feet, chance to be special, needs to get stronger. I must have missed the part where they said they need to teach him how to play football.

Re: Vikings sign Richardson (For real)

I love this signing. For a player like Richardson who has huge ability but doesn't always live up to it this is the right kind of deal. A one year prove it deal with millions in incentives and being added to a pretty stacked front 7 where he won't be doubled very often. There's every reason for Shel...

Re: Holy F*ckin sh*t post-game thread madness

I disagree. Vikings deserve this win. You can't take away the effort from the first half. As dramatic as the ending was, the Vikings still moved the ball and was in FG position with Diggs catch. Just so happened he made a huge play so they didn't have to kick the FG for the win. Maybe "Didn't deser...

Re: Holy F*ckin sh*t post-game thread madness

Agreed. However, I’m hoping Zim learned a lesson and it never happens again. Doubt it will against Foles next week, completely different animal from the vet Brees and the Aints. As much as they nearly killed all of us again, I'm glad this happened this way. I'm almost happy they got punched in the ...

Re: Bradfords knee??

This may have been said earlier, but honestly I don't want to read the whole thread to check. If Sam's knee was truly hopeless they wouldn't have wasted any time putting him on IR to free up a roster spot. So either there is some level of legitimate hope he can play again this year. Or they are play...

Re: Teddy, Teddy, Teddy!

With the team putting up wins and Keenum playing the role of Game Manager effectively there's no reason to rush Teddy back. With Rogers out of the picture and Detroit having some difficulties the Division is wide open and winnable. There's no reason to upset the team balance right now. Sam's injury ...

Re: Biggest surprise player so far

There are several candidates, but there can be only one. Case Keenum. If prior to the season someone would tell us Bradford would only have played 1 and half games and the Vikes would be 4-2 you'd have called them crazy. He hasn't lit the world on fire aside from the one game against the Bucs, but h...

Re: Week 5 Reaction Thread

Bad: Bradford should not have been playing last night. I'm a fan of Zimmer, but this was a bad judgement call and he waited too long to pull him. The way the offense moved under Case makes me believe had he started the Vikes would've won by 10-14 points. I'm losing faith in Waynes as a CB, wonder if...

Re: Vikings @ Bears Game Day Discussion Thread -- Week 5

Bradford needs to be pulled ASAP. He's not even close to being right.
