Re: Peterson plea deal...

When he does come back, can you imagine the level of fan hatred from other teams (and some Vikings fans) is going to come his way? He is no longer the golden goose for the NFL, so Goodell really has no reason to treat him with kid's gloves. And if you think opposing defenses won't try and get in his...

Sid Hartman is the voice of reason? I do believe this is one of the signs of the apocalypse.

Re: Culpepper-Moss highlights

I have always liked Moss. My feelings about him is that he was a non-conformist. He did things his way, every time, unless there was a better way. That applied to almost everything he did on and off the field. As for his attitude, didn't he train one off-season with Cris Carter, or am I remembering ...

Re: DRAFT OG ALREADY

That is a good and valid perspective, and it all depends on how you believe you build a team. Ihave been a long time advocate of building from the inside/out. Without a strong OL and DL, that puts added pressure on every other position on the field. The Vikings have had zero luck lately in finding g...

Re: DRAFT OG ALREADY

I think we will be looking for another tackle. Today Kalil looked better, but that isn't saying much. We simply have to replace Johnson. No penalties for him. but he looks like a slow, lost guard right now. Here's a thought... do you think Kalil has been struggling because he is trying to do too mu...

Re: Teddy Bridgewater gets advice from Christian Ponder

I don't really believe that either. That was thrown out there as pure sarcasm at Ponder's on field struggles. I just forgot the lol smiley. I have tremendous respect for teachers and coaches, I'm personally in a position where I'm training, coaching and teaching a team of people. I know it's very d...

Re: PHP's "Never Too Early" Mock Offseason

Looks like RB Tevin Coleman from Indiana is starting to make some heads turn. Got some coverage on Yahoo for being a long shot for the Heisman.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater gets advice from Christian Ponder

Those who can, do; those who can't, teach. Gads, I have always detested that quote. Most of the great teachers I had over the course of my life were experts, or near-experts, in what they were teaching. They all could "do" to one degree or another, but they had IMMENSE teaching talent and a desire ...

Re: Brian Robison: weak sauce

One person getting pressue can almost be counter productive against a quarterback who knows how to move in the pocket. However -- and I think this is what Zimmer alludes to when he talks about it essentially not mattering who gets sacks because it's all a product of other guys doing their job -- wh...

Re: Brian Robison: weak sauce

Robison excelled as a secondary threat. When he had Allen across from him to eat up blockers, he was free to roam and make noise. I think Griffen gets his results because offenses focus more on stopping Robison, based more probably on his reputation than on his reality. What I would like to see is t...

Re: Brian Robison: weak sauce

I think it is absolutely fair to hold Spielman accountable for his first few drafts, especially in absence of any evidence that his voice was not a strong one in the draft room. The assumption that he was overruled is based on hearsay, but the fact is, we don't know. That being said, the last three ...

Re: Brian Robison: weak sauce

Spielman's first few drafts were spotty at best. As far as free agency, he has garnered a good crop of draft picks, but the Vikings really have been unable to get a long-term game changer. It seems that until 2012, the moves were all short-term, and infused with a "gotta win now" desperation. That a...
