Re: Preseason Week 1 Post Game Thoughts

Was a good game. Cousins was hot, he and Diggs look great together. Theilen wasnt in long enough to get many touches, I hope he gets a little more play time with Cousins in the next few pre season games. Treadwell had one more catch then I thought he would have. The Oline played well throughout the ...

Re: What Does Everyone Think About Trading for an O-Lineman?

Too bad Rick just doesnt draft Oline guys. The D is going to be one of the best in history, so lets keep making that stronger, and forget about the glaring weakness we have had for years, the Oline. But we got Hughes, he can move over and play G... :wallbang:

Re: Vikings Announce Barone, Janocko as Co-Offensive Line Coaches 

I think I read something (maybe here?) that the Vikings reached out to Mike Tice. That would be great imo. Might actually have a decent line with a goof coach. Otherwise I think Cousins will have a long season.

Hunter has huge potential. Hopefully he lives up to it this year. If he and Barr play like they can, we will have one wicked D.

Re: Changing Norseman Logo

I love the logo. Its one of the most recognized in the NFL I think. I am part Norwegian, as Im sure many other Viking fans are, and I dont understand how it could be taken an other way other then pride. Unless your looking for stuff.

Re: Hey Viking fans

I hope Barr and Erin meet again. Erin hates being pressured, its when he makes mistakes. And one part of the Vikings game that should be improved is the D line.

Hmm this is the second time now that I have tried to reply with a quote, by selecting the quotes in the upper right corner, and the quote didnt appear. I assume its something I did wrong.

Re: Total Access - Film Breakdown of Kirk Cousins

You are mostly right. But Thelein, Diggs, and Kyle are NOT your normal WR's. They are experienced vets now. I dont think its normal for Case to come in, and put the ball where, imo, the best receiving corps could catch it. There are maybe 5 teams I can think of that could make this happen. And Cousi...

Re: Total Access - Film Breakdown of Kirk Cousins

I know I am in the minority here, but I am really concerned with how Cousins will handle what I think is an average at best line. I cant believe that Rick didnt address this line more for the multi billion dollar man, but also didn't shore up good run blockers for Cook (who I still think is the best...

Re: It's boring. Come play NFL Survivor!

Speaking of Survivor and the Vikings, did Brad Culpepper make any kind of mark while he was here? I dont remember him at all, except I think he was a first round pick a few years after the horrible Walker deal was made.

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

The thing is, time shouldnt tell. We should have drafted a member of the Oline that was ready to play from day one. We didnt, we decided to get a CB/ST guy. It was a big mistake because we needed to at least try to make an effort to upgrade the Oline this year. Unless they are figuring this team wil...

Re: Dalvin Cook breakdown and expectations

I'm afraid that he won't be the same RB after the injury. I'm also worried that even if he is the same he won't last. Non-contact injuries like the one he had don't inspire a lot of confidence for me. I hope he can stay healthy and retain that spark he had but I'm glad we've still got Murray on the...

Those are not remotely similar. We gave Cousins $84M. Guaranteed. All of it.

If he flops, its going to be hard to justify keeping a GM who made that massive of a mistake. I don't think you get a mulligan if you miss on an "all in" move like this.

Re: 2018 Vikings: Outlook, Roster, Depth Chart

Nice write up, very optimistic. We will need all that talent this year, I think we have the hardest schedule I have ever seen.

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

We had a need to protect our HUGE QB investment. I would say 90% of the so called experts said the same thing. We need a good guard or tackle with our first pick (and imo our second pick). Ones that can play, and protect Cousins from the start of the season. We failed to do that. I am betting it wil...
