Re: Mike Zimmer begins offseason of ‘soul searching"

Correct! Exactly right. Zimmer did a great job of taking a defense in need of an overhaul and building it into one of the league's better units but too many people are willing to overlook the fact that an offense that had climbed to 13th in the league (with Ponder and Cassel at QB!) dropped into th...

Re: Mike Zimmer begins offseason of ‘soul searching"

IMO, Zimmer and Spielman had a lot of rebuilding to do. Pretty tough to rebuild an entire team at once. They seemed to concentrate on the defense first as that was the most in need. They did not exclude the offense, but focused more on the defense. In that Zimm has been very successful. Losing Teddy...

Replaced by who? He was our 3rd string LT in camp. First 2 went down for the season.

Re: Scoggins: Offensive line might block Vikings from succes

For me, that is the key to our season. If they can protect, and give Teddy time to utilize our entire gameplan, we will do well. If Norv has to shrink the playbook to cover for oline weaknesses, we could have a tough time.

Re: Preseason Week 1- Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Minnesota Viki

I hate to say it, but I think it is very possible we have seen the last of Marcus Sherels as the Punt Returner, and therefore possibly on the team. I like him a lot because he always works as hard as he possibly can, but man, Diggs really looks good. I like Sherels too. If Diggs does replace him as...

The first two QB slots are set. I am pretty sure we will get a good dose of Kafka and Heineke thru the preseason as the coaches figure out which guy will fill the third QB spot.

Re: WR Depth Chart

But in what way did he really "surprise us"?? He made the team as an undrafted FA?? Well there have been a lot of players that have done that over the years. He makes a decent special teams guy but I'm talking from a WR standpoint and he has shown next to nothing. Just because he hustles doesn't me...

Re: Young Theodore Bridgewater

I don't know who would trade Teddy for Cutler (higher on the list) straight up, regardless of salary impact. I know not everyone likes the fancy statistics, but I think the Carr vs. Bridgewater debate needs them. Carr was able to throw 21 TD's, while Bridgewater threw only 14. But so many of Teddy'...

Re: WR Depth Chart

Thielen is better than CP and Diggs because CP and Diggs haven't proven theirselves? What has Thielen done in game action, again? He hasn't been given much opportunity in game action. Thielen amde the roster as basically a walk on which proves something to me. Do you realize how difficult that is? ...

Re: WR Depth Chart

And PHP, I did not mean for this to sound like an attack on you, if that is the way it came across. Just think Adam could surprise us again. Truth be told, he is the likely candidate to draw the short straw, but you never know what is going to happen when we start playing other teams in preseason, a...
