Re: Offseason Thoughts on Our NFC Compatriots

It is murder's row the first 5 weeks for sure. But I like its at the start where defenses generally are closer to mid-season form than the offenses. I think a general defensive advantage is multiplied by our team D and familiarity with system and each other to start out in late season form and tip s...

Re: 2018 Vikings Free Agency Thread

In the interest of getting better now, without spending any more, I would add a 5th option to your list; Sign MK to a 15M/3 year deal that he should take if he is replacing Barr and going to play. Then trade Barr for a quality young guard and a mid-rounder. We get the guard we need now, set at LB wi...

Re: 2018 Vikings Free Agency Thread

I know things always look better than what you have this time of year...but could Kendricks be an opportunity? Trade Barr for a Starting guard and mid-round pick, pick up Kendricks for a 5M/year 3 year contract might make a better overall team. Kendricks strengths and weakness similar to Barr BUT a ...

Re: WEEK 14: Minnesota Vikings @ Panthers Discussion

I don't want to jinx anything...but I just don't think this will be a competitive game. Score may be low...like 17-3...but don't see Vikes ever in danger during this one. Matchups are too much in our favor with these guys. One decent receiver in Funchess...Rhodes makes that go away. We play man all ...

USB Game Day Question

My wife and I are traveling to USB for Bengals game. 40 year fan and first home game we will get to attend. We are bringing our 10yo grandson and want to dress up to the nines for it. I know you have to have an NFL approved clear bag for stuff, but can you paint up and enter in full regalia, or do y...

Re: 2017 Vikings Free Agency Signings Thread

Crazy thought running through my head...the longer the hold out drags, the more I think maybe the Rams just are not in a place that they want 18M tied up in one player with so many holes to fill in the next few years. MAYBE an opening might come up to approach them with a package like Teddy+Treadwel...

Re: Peterson headed to free agency

Anyone else see a situation playing out where by Thompson takes advantage of APs tendency to let his hurt feelings feed his ego and uses this to full advantage to get AP in the door at a pauper's price....sure the NFL would be willing to chip in a finders fee for the deal as well to be able to hype ...

Re: Reality Check

No, it is a BUSINESS with irrational and shortsided clients! I see it as one of the most difficult businesses in the world.....you cant make the kind of 5/10 year plans required to have acceptable risk management as to success (if you judge that as a realistic shot to be the best team). Knee jerk re...

Reality Check

While it has been pointed out a few times already to some extent......I just am not sure exactly what people are criticizing as to strategies taken to make this team competitive this year or surprise why this is now hurting us. Discount altogether bad luck....we were a 5-11 team a year ago. Zimmer/S...
