Most Encouraging Sign for 2016

Just my $0.02. Nothing fun about a last second loss but I saw much positivity for the future in the game thread, a feeling I share. A quick thought, nothing novel I'm sure, it's been a while since I posted. The players play the games (cliche). But I think it is tremendously promising that Zimmer and...

Re: SI Article about shutdown / me

Thank you, Geoff, for running the Board for so many years and for taking over for Mike's phenomenal work. No worries at all on my end what happened this week. The best part about this Board is that it is moderated for civility. For those who want to criticize, please realize that this Board goes bac...

Re: Adrian Peterson Indicted for Negligent Injury to a Child

Every alleged action attributed to Adrian Peterson in this story is awful. I'm heartbroken for the children if the alleged acts prove a regular course of action in his household those times when his children are present.

He played great while he was here (too good maybe, he kept Ponder around too long), and we got great value for him, considering he is injury prone. Hes also one of the m...

Re: Assistant Coaches:

[quote="mmvikes"]Maybe we should have kept Bevell. He just coached a Super Bowl winning offense[/quote]

He's come a long way from the day his boss ordered him to lie about the absence of four star players from a training camp practice while on a plane to Mississippi. Good for him.

Wow! The Super Bowls at one time were often blowouts, not recently. When's the last blowout like this?

Re: Some football game tonight

I'm happy for Percy Harvin, Heath Farwell, Darrell Bevell, Pete Carroll, and Tarvaris Jackson, players and coaches with a Vikings history now earning their first Super Bowl ring barring a collapse of epic proportion. I'm especially happy to see Percy Harvin contribute, he was one of my favorite Viki...

Re: Kluwe rips Frazier, Spielman, Priefer

It's again disappointing to me that Kluwe's camp felt the need today to very publicly try to influence public opinion in the investigation by talking to the press. The most interesting thing to me that the lawyer for Kluwe stated was that they are concerned the investigation will conclude that Prief...
