Re: 2018 Vikings: Outlook, Roster, Depth Chart

Great write up! I am looking forward to seeing how Cousins and Sheldon Richardson impact our team. We are talking about major change in the overall feel of our Offense, in particular, due to Cousins and De Felipo. I also sense that we may have a big showdown with GB this year and the rivalry will be...

Re: 2018 Vikings Free Agency Thread

Wow our CB room is absolutely stacked! Rhodes Waynes Alexander Hughes Newman We also signed CB Hill from Texas, who went undrafted due to his month-long suspension at the end of his junior year. Not sure what his exact character concerns are, but talent-wise, it sounds like he has a shot to make th...

When your team is built around defense kicker is an even more important position than normal, in my opinion. A wise investment.
I completely agree. This was one pick that I did not have any problem with!

Re: 2018 Vikings Free Agency Thread

The Vikings announce Terence Newman is coming back for another season. He’ll be 40 years old just before the start of the regular season.

Also just saw that WR Caleb Jones suspended for 4 games for violating substance policy! WTH?

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Vikes REALLY wanted Ragnow in Rd. 1. Worth a listen, especially at 11:20, but the whole thing really. http://kstp.com/news/scoop-podcast-episode-143-frank-ragnow-jonathan-mann-vikings-draft/4884689/ For the last week before the draft most all mocks had him going to the Bengals at # 21. That's proba...

Re: Vikings 2018 UDFAs

Recent history suggests we just signed a 53-man roster player. My money is on Hercules or Holton Hill. I like what I've seen about Hercules too. His tape shows a player with great instinct and explosiveness. The question is, what position will they put him at? LB? DE? I suppose special teams covera...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Eh we grabbed the kicker from Auburn! Bye Kai! I'm glad that Kai will have competition at the very least. He made me so uneasy last year. Mayock had some good things to say about him. Did anyone catch the odd sounding trades that we pulled for this pick? Something with the jets. lol yeah they are s...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Thread

Darn. Seems like he would have had the potential to make a bigger impact than the DE we nabbed. Time will tell.

Any chance we use one of our 4 (!) 6th rounders to move up in the 5th? That's all that's keeping me dialed in at this point.

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

The thing about Jim is that he is always super diplomatic. He has his opinions, backs them with evidence and cogent arguments, but he always respects other posters. The board has declined with his absence, IMO. We should all strive to post the way Jim does. PHP, I really enjoy your takes, but I'm wi...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Thread

@Fiesta: Belange is intriguing, but I think we need a DE to bolster our line depth. Our lack here showed in both playoff games. I hope we draft Okoronkwo from OK. They just snagged a DE/DT. Looks like Danielle Hunter. Powerhouse without much skill to date. Ballage is a perfect match for the offense...
