Re: 2018 NFL Draft Thread

I'm really surprised at a lot of you guys. I mean we pick at 30. I figured this was going to be a very hard draft for us. Baring some miracle the odds of us getting some really great quality people at our spot was pretty slim. The best we could hope for is quality back ups. And that's what we are go...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Thread

I think this pick is okay. All the guys we really wanted were all gone. He may not have been a #1 round pick, but at #30 we are picking what's left over. We needed another corner at this point and he is not a terrible pick. It sounds like he's not one of those guys who is passive in pass coverage bu...

Re: Wright Released

Well with Diggs injury history Treadwell will get some opportunities. Let's hope he makes the best of them. He'll also get chances in those 3 receiver sets. I hope he can come through cause defenses will be primed to stop Thielen in them. He needs to be able to beat the one on ones he sure to get. S...

Re: Report: Teddy Bridgewater finalizing deal with Jets

Perhaps Teddy will come back to us later as a backup.

Re: Vikings sign Richardson (For real)

I. AM. STOKED!!! Love this signing. I, like others, do hope they address the O-line early in the draft. And maybe a development QB in mid rounds but man, this team just doesn't seem to have many weak spots. I don't remember the last time I was so excited for a season and it's only March!!! This is ...

Re: Wright Released

We will still need to look at WR no matter what. Treadwell hasn't shown much and neither has Wright. I expected more of him. He has shown some great things in one or two games, but overall he has shown little. When Diggs is out what has Wright done? I'm not a hater, but I don't think he's worth the ...

Re: [Rumor] Kirk Cousins a Vikings for 27 million/year

"Turnover-worthy play analysis: There was no consistent theme to Cousins’ turnover-worthy plays, as he had bad fumbles in the pocket, misreads of zone coverage and off-target throws into man coverage sprinkled throughout his game. He started and ended the season in similar fashion, as his two worst...

Re: [Rumor] Kirk Cousins a Vikings for 27 million/year

For those of you who want Cousins what do you have to say about him being bad under pressure and a fumble machine? If that is true that worries me greatly.

Re: Zim on Hot Seat?

Well that would be true, but could we blame Zim for a situation like that? I would think the GM would hold most of the burden. A coach has to play with what he has. I know Zim has a say, but right now we do not have a QB. But I get it coaches on the hot seat for not winning when the opportunity is t...

Re: Keep or cut: Latavius Murray

Well I'm for keeping right now. There is no guarantee that Cook will be able to perform this year like he showed last year. Knee injuries are easily career killers. Peterson was an exception to the rule. One more cut like Cook made and the knee goes out again. Then we are stuck with nothing. No Murr...

I don't think it was one thing. I think it was a combination of things. I mean we scored our first drive and looked really good. We stopped Philly then the turnover. It was over after that as you well know. I think emotionally we were drained and that pick six was enough to push the emotional dump b...

Re: Next years QB

Well it also looks like we are going to let Teddy hit free agency also. So, Keenum and Teddy and Bradford all hit free agency. That leaves us in going position to go all in for Cousins. But I am wondering if it's a mistake to let Teddy hit free agency. We still could make him stay another year and i...

Re: Biggest Need On The Team?

Well aside from the obvious I would still say OL and DL. You watch the great play during the playoff run if all teams and you see how a good OL can handle a good DL. It makes all the difference in the world. DL has to have pass rushing capability on the inside to allow the ends to do their thing. Th...

Re: Next years QB

I haven't seen anything out of Teddy to make me feel he's the man of the future. But let's be honest, none of us have. When he played we didn't have the weapons or the line we have now. I almost feel it hasn't been a fair evaluation. But it's definitely one of those things where SB windows can close...

Re: Most hated teams?

Philadelphia because if their scummy fans. 5. NY Giants cause it feels like they always have our number when it co...
