Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

So what do you expect to happen going forward? Do you expect the rush offensive to continue to sputter, or do you see it continuing to improve? I believe it will continue to improve for a few reasons. And I still think 3.8 YPC on the road against the #2 run defense is a credible performance. Not su...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

I think part of Reiff's setback is he is playing hurt. We know he was playing hurt against the Rams and he couldn't make it through the Eagles game. When healthy, he's pretty good, or if that's too much to swallow, decent. Injuries are purely hindsight driven and not a very fair way to judge compos...

Re: Vikings at Jets pregame thread

We can't overlook this team. They are very Jekyll and Hyde. Let's hope Sunday they play awfully. They have a lot of injuries.

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

Compton was signed as a back up and was only thrust into action because of Easton's injury. The vikings began experimenting with remmers at guard during the end of last season and the playoffs due to injuries. Mike zimmer could have very well felt more comfortable leaving compton as a back up and l...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

Nobody is ignoring it. It's been the blindside where we are getting killed. That is what's being ignored. Riley Reiff is the starter there. And he gave up 12 pressures vs Buffalo (a HUGE reason we couldnt get anything going that game) and was the one that gave up the strip sack on our final drive a...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

I usually agree with you mansquatch. YikesVikes and I have our battles but I have to side with most of his take here when it comes to the OL. You do make other great points about the whole Dallas thing. We dont need some amazing OL just to win a SB. They just need to do their job. Be average as a g...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

3.8 YPC on the road against the #2 rush defense is respectable. As for whether "good enough" is enough, it depends. If the rush threat is credible, if it forces the opposing defense to account for it, then I'd say yes, it is. Who wouldn't like to have a great ground attack, but it's the overall pic...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

Exactly. Thank you. This is what I keep trying to say. Hernandez makes these tackles no better. Sure, during draft day it looked good but Reiff has been a giant flop this year. Remmers is probably a better RT than RG but still is "meh" for a RT. And Hill is awful. We needed tackles!! Yeah guard was...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

ELI Manning has been sacked 20 times, kirk cousins has been sacked 18. The giants rank 25th in rushing, the vikings rank 26th. Hernandez, as good as he may end up being, would not have prevented hill or reiff from getting beat at the tackle positions. He very well may have made the vikings offensiv...

Re: Cardinals Postgame Thread

I guess I don't understand the "botched draft" comment. If we take Hernandez and then a CB in the 2nd, what is the difference? Hernandez is playing well right now but so is O'Neill. And I'm much more worried about the tackle position than I am the interior right now. If we took Hernandez, and Reiff...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

A few things I don't understand with this staff right now.... 1.) Why is O'Neill not a starter over Hill?? 2.) Why is Jones not getting a shot at guard over Compton or center (and move Elflein to OG)?? 3.) Why is it when Reiff gets hurt that we put Hill at LT and not O'Neill?? Especially when facin...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

Pretty general comment. Let's remember, the Vikings finished 7th in the NFL in rushing offense last year with Easton playing LG. This year, we're 31st. Joe Berger was also in there, which certainly helped, but Easton was known to have a nasty streak, especially on running plays. Don't tell me his l...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

How about do nothing with the offensive line? That might sound like heresy, but it is an option, and here is why I don't think it is a terrible option. - As Kapp pointed out, swapping offensive linemen in, out or around for non-injury reasons during a season is a really bad sign. That means the guy...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

Seriously... WTF? Reiff was cut by Detroit after they moved him to RT, which isn't his natural position. Vikings sign him, put him at LT and he has his best season as a pro. Now you want to move him to RT where he has sucked in the past AND replace him with a relatively unproven O'Neil? Umm what? R...

Re: Fustrated with lack of changes on Oline

I was mad about the lack of front office attention when I thought our second round pick was a multi year project. Now that O’Neil looks like a first year contributor, I am happier with our OL decisions this offseason. As someone stated earlier, we got dealt a bad hand with the Easton injury. Elflei...
