Re: If all 4 QBs were healthy right now, who would you start

I understand the desire to keep Keenum in there, but I completely disagree. Keenum has facilitated the offense, but I haven't seen him take over and honestly, I don't expect him too. That is truly nothing against Case - he's outperformed what I thought he could do - but he still isn't somebody that...

Re: If all 4 QBs were healthy right now, who would you start

I think there's a good chance Mike Zimmer will be considering the same question as this poll going into the next game. A bone bruise takes 1-2 months to heal and Bradford is now at 2 months. He was progressing well enough for them to try to play him on 10/9 so unless he had a big setback in that ga...

Re: Bradfords knee??

3rd and long can be 3rd and 7 and that's what I meant. in 2015 Teddy did a great job on 3rd and long (3rd and 5 - 3rd and 10) Do you guys forget how many games the defense won last year, how many times they got a turnover only to see the Vikes go 3 and out? I'm not saying it's all Bradfords fault. ...

Yes he was...past tense...but not in his last year here and he was becoming less and less effective.

Re: The Adrian Peterson self implosion continues

Oh puhleeeeeeze stop with the bringing AP back talk. :sleep: He wasn't effective when he was here, and another injury or two and we'll be right back to a horrible OL or an AP on the sidelines. And you know that would happen, because we're the Vikings. Lets keep looking forward, not backward to a day...

Bingo. Revenge is best served cold but AP wanted to dish it out hot.


Plus, I don't think he's really bright enough to be able to see which teams he fits and which ones he doesn't. He thinks he can carry any team, anywhere, anytime...

Re: Teddy Bridgewater 2017 season activation scenarios

11-5. Find another Vikings QB that led his team to 11 or more wins. You won't find much. He didn't lead he stayed out of the way and avoided big mistakes (mostly by avoiding any risks-which is also why we lost the Seahawk game in our own stadium). How can you call being at or near the bottom of the...

Re: Teddy Bridgewater 2017 season activation scenarios

I can't help myself. Once again. Teddy has started 28 games. There was clear progression in his game. The preseason before his injury was excellent. He's only started 28 games. I can't recall, was that playoff game historically cold? I can't recall, in that game did Teddy out-duel Russel Wilson? I ...

Re: Teddy Bridgewater 2017 season activation scenarios

Whooaaa, wait a second...did Teddy suddenly become above average when I wasn't looking? When? Where? How? I gotta see this. Last time I saw him he couldn't even get the ball in the endzone in a playoff game at home. Wait, I guess that is about average for a Vikings QB . :lol: I see Teddy getting act...

Re: The Adrian Peterson self implosion continues

I always enjoy it when people with ginormous egos and even bigger bank accounts come down to earth and face the inevitable. The problem here is, that hasn't happened yet. I wouldn't be surprised if AP has a few big games left him, but he is on record saying he thinks he can play at a high level for ...

Re: Bradfords knee??

Fake news, not because its phony but because it doesn't rise to the level of being newsworthy. If he couldn't practice I'd be concerned. Being limited means he's sore, a fairly common thing for NFL players after an NFL game, so they want to give him time to heal. I'll start worrying if he is still l...
