Re: Reflecting on the QB situation

Just to pound home the issue with Keenum, he had 3 INT starting for DEN yesterday. We would have lost today if Cousins had committed that many turnovers. I thought Denver was silly to give him that contract, it was obvious that while he had a great year with us, he still was making the kinds of mis...

Re: Vikings Vs. 49ers Postgame Thread

Actually, there was also a series of plays by the 49ers in the first half that were misdirection fakes where Jimmy G rolled one way and then tossed it to a guy who was wide open running away from where the rest of the 49er offensive was moving. It was crazy. It was like 3 plays in a row where the 4...

Horrible day for Sam Bradford... 17/29 for 138 yds, 0 TD's, 1 INT
Sam Bradford is not and has never been a particularly good QB. Great arm though.

Both Isadora and Compton should not be in at LG.
I think the best we can hope for is...

LT
Elfein
Isadora
Jones
Remmers
That makes sense. I'd just like to see this team be able to RUN FOR A FIRST DOWN when we have a chance to close out a game.

They need to switch things up on the OL Remmers is an upgrade over Hill at RT Jones is an upgrade over Remmers at RG Elflein will be an upgrade over Jones at C Isadora is an upgrade over Compton at LG I don't understand why this team is so sluggish about making personnel improvements. They stick wit...

Re: Reflecting on the QB situation

Bradford has the highest ceiling of all them. He is a SPECIAL passer when it comes to accuracy and power. Exactly my point. I already acknowledged that. But his deficiencies will cost you drives and games nonetheless. On the whole, Keenum is a better QB. That is, he will win more games for you. The...

Re: Reflecting on the QB situation

Keenum or Cousins would have been my plan B. Keenum had deficiencies but I fear Cousins deficiencies will be less obvious, and more detrimental. In this way he may be like Bradford, who would be my last choice. He does some things well, but the things that don't go well will all be pinned on other p...

Re: Vikings Vs. 49ers Pregame Thread

Vikings need to be ready for all the stretch plays and bootlegs the Shanahans love to run. Hopefully our offense can get it going. Dream scenario would be to establish our running game and set the tone for the season while setting up play action as a major weapon.

Re: 53 man roster...Cuts and trades

One of the cuts that I found a bit odd was cutting Blake Bell in favor of Tyler Conklin, who frankly looked quite raw. Bell seemed better in run blocking AND receiving. My first thought was that perhaps Spielman's ego may have factored in, not wanting to cut a recent draft pick, but I wonder if part...

Re: Vikings get Giants Center via trade

:lol: this is what scares me too! I am no expert, but my gut feels like this could be a good starting line: LT: Reiff LG: Elflein or Jones (I don’t know who is more natural on either side) C: Isidora (assuming what Zimmer says is true about this being his natural position) RG: Elflein or Jones RT: ...

Re: 53 man roster...Cuts and trades

They're not getting rid of Murray. Assuming they aren't going to keep 5 RBs, either they are going to trade one or cut one. If they were going to cut one, you'd think they'd have already done it, which means maybe we should anticipate a trade and even that a deal may already be in the works. If the...

Re: 53 man roster...Cuts and trades

I'm surprised the cut Beebe. From this first round, I think he and Antwione Williams will be targets for the practice squad.

I guess its hard to maintain NFL strength when you are simultaneously recovering from an ankle and a shoulder injury. Elflein already wasn't the biggest guy.
