Re: Numbers show Vikings pass defense is better

Even with the defensive line play, the secondary has been much better in coverage. Rhodes is usually right on his guy, even if that doesn't always result in a pass breakup. Robinson is playing much better. And while Blanton may get run over regularly, he seems to hold his own when asked to cover. A...

Re: Weeeeeerrrreeeee Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!!!

Certainly frustrating. Really gave every single one of us a bad name (albeit no one's identity is at stake) - even CBS picked up on the story. Pretty disgusted with how the whole thing was handled on here.

Here's hoping that nothing like that happens again.

Re: Peterson's Contract Means Exit Is Feasible

2 million dollar "cap hit" to the billionaire Wilfs... That has very little to do with how much the Wilfs end up pocketing at the end of the season anyway. I'm totally cool with cutting him at the end of the season (even if he is cleared of all charges). The baggage is now apparent, and it's not so...

Asiata and Joe Banyard give you all the confidence you need in the run game? McKinnon is the only bright spot in my mind, but he's nowhere near ready.

Bradley Randle?

Why not give him a shot? Vikings fans certainly love him even after getting cut, and the Vikings could use a positive PR boost at this point...it'd be nice to give him a look again!

Re: Should we trade Adrian?

Women and children are suffering EVERYWHERE, at the hands of men. Eventually someone is going to have to man up and make some real changes and set an example. I would embrace that and cheer for someone like that. The vast majority of professional athletes don't beat up women or children. There. Emb...

Re: Status of Floyd and Robinson

No real mention of Robinson here, but Floyd seems to believe that he'll be good to go for next week.

Re: Anthony Barr

He seemed to be in on several big tackles today. Kid looks like he could be the real deal with some more experience down the road...while nothing is definite, he started well today!

Re: Fusco gets 5-yr Extension

He kinda came out of nowhere in my book. As far as I knew, he was just another name in the revolving door at one of the two guard positions. Glad to see that he's been developed into one of the better guards out there and got a well-deserved contract. The more guys you can lockdown long-term on the ...

Re: Folks need to realize the Pack is not elite anymore

... and yet with all these flaws and issues, they've won 55 games and a Super Bowl in the past 5 years and they've also won the last 3 division titles. I agree with GBFavreFan that they're not the same team that won the Super Bowl or went 15-1 the following year, and they may not even be an elite t...

Re: Sunday might prove the naysayers right

Honestly, if they can't beat the Rams, how could they be expected to come close to beating the Saints, Packers, Patriots, and Falcons? If the Vikings really are a team on the move, if Zimmer really does have this team in the right direction, if Cassel is really going to play like he did in the pres...

Re: A Football Life Series

Being a younger fan, I only experienced the 98 season. But I bought the "history of the Vikings" DVD a few years ago, and it came with both "Missing Rings" shows as bonus features. Maybe it's because I didn't experience both seasons to the same extent as everyone here (I was only 9 for the 98 seaso...
