Re: Vikings at Jets pregame thread

I just did a quick look, but it seems the only team left on our schedule under .500 is Detroit and I wouldn't be shocked if they were at or above .500 by the time we play them. Last year we kicked off an 8 game winning steak in week 5 against CHI (sub .500), GB (sans Rodgers for most of the game), B...

Re: Vikings Vs. Packers Postgame Thread

Many of you can blame this on Carlson and Treadwell, but I blame it on the staff who put those guys out there. That kicker should have been gone somewhere during preseason and shouldn't have been drafted in the first place. While Treadwell was a legitimate draft pick (though not a first-rounder), h...

Re: Preseason Week 3 Post Game Thoughts

Made my first trip to the "bank" for this game. Very enjoyable experience, and while it was pre-season, with 2's and 3's playing, the final of the game was very fun to watch. As they were winding down to 0 seconds left, it occurred to me that Seattle was pretty much at the same spot we were against ...

Re: Game Day Chat or Game Day Thread?

I rarely particpate in the game threads as I tend to be behind when watching a game-- sometimes I'll start a game 30 mins late and by half time I'm caught up and then I'll do the same for the 2nd half. During half time and after the game (sometimes the next day), I enjoy reading through the thread (...

Re: Diggs Miracle TD

One of the reasons this was such a great moment, is even people that aernt football or Vikings fan saw it and love it. A lot of relatives i have done watch football at all, but they all talked to me about it, and how exciting it was. I dont remember any other play by a MN sports team that did that,...

Re: Vikings sign QB- Kirk Cousins to a 3 year, ~$86 million

Again I don’t buy the whole “saints second half thing”. We had a punt blocked and threw a pick all inside the 50 and they got 2 tds off of it. How is that on the defense. We only gave up one true TD that game. The rest were caused by bonehead plays. Philly yeah they played horrible but many like to...

Re: 2018 Season opening game.

I can definitely see us beating Philly though. Especially if we improve the OL in the draft. Since 2015, Cousins is 4-2 against them. On a bad team. His only two losses since 2015 came this year. However, the 2nd game vs. the Eagles at Philly he played very well. Was 30 for 40 for 303, 3 TDs and 1 ...

Re: Are you looking past the Eagles this week?

Honestly how do you look past *any* team, when it takes *!THAT!* to get you past your prior game. Also, any Vikings fan worth his salt knows the pain that comes with losing a game he/she was looking forward to, much less past.

Re: Subdued Excitement

Is it just me, or is the excitement for the Vikings very... Careful this season? At work, when we talk about the Vikings, almost every conversation ends with "We're waiting for the other shoe to fall" or something similar. I told my dad that it is getting harder and harder to jot get too excited fo...

Re: Enemy Fan Forums - Divisional Round vs. Saints

I heard a comment from one of the talking heads about "try to establish some false tendencies" in the final weeks of the season. Is this something teams do? If so, possibly both the Vikings and the Saint's seemingly off final games were simply an effort to not show what we've *really* been setting u...

Re: Enemy Fan Forums - Divisional Round vs. Saints

I see a ton of people picking the Saints. It shows the incredible biases that pundits have. The recency bias - all they can remember is the Panthers game score: They don't remember that the Panthers moved the ball up and down the field on the Saints D, they don't remember that the game was won beca...

Re: Enemy Fan Forums - Divisional Round vs. Saints

It's funny how they unintentionally put themselves down. "Who have they beat, the Rams?" Uh yeah, and... the SAINTS. "Color me unimpressed, look at their schedule, 3-1 against the NFC south pfft." Um that's your division dumbass. "Saints have been playing playoff quality teams in December." Like.. ...

Re: Super Bowl odds.

I was sooo confused. I didn't notice that the original post was from 2015! I was trying to figure out how the Chief could have started 5-2 (2nd best record at the time) and have their odds drop from 40-1 down to 300-1.

Re: What's your story?

My first recollection of the Vikings was Sunday January 13, 1974. As a first grader who had just turned 7 years old 2 months before. My Dad walked into my room and asked me to pick the winner of the Superbowl-- if I was right I'd get a quarter. I picked the Dolphins. I had no clue. My dad was not pl...
