Re: Sam Bradford season statistics

We did have a dink and dunk offense, but if you look at yards per attempt and yards per game it is very similar. Those two numbers really surprised me. Sam had a #### OL so I give him more credit :)

Re: Mike Zimmer begins offseason of ‘soul searching"

It is my personal opinion that the offense was not that great coming into the season and therefore I think the season would have went the same way it did even with Teddy and AP here. The OL wasn't good. This would not have had people whining about the injuries and thus giving Zim a pass. Can I prove...

Re: Treadwell hopes to make rookie season a distant memory

I think we need a new WR coach.

Re: Mike Zimmer begins offseason of ‘soul searching"

Good and bad?? This defense has done nothing but gone up since he's gotten here and him and Spielman are the ones that brought in the talent. Not sure how you can say its been "bad". Within the last two years, this defense has been one of the best in the NFL. If you're going to pick apart 2 games t...

Re: Mike Zimmer begins offseason of ‘soul searching"

Might some of Zimmer's issues be experience related? Just to point something out: Belicick, by any measure the modern day coaching gold standard, was the HC in CLE from 91-95 amassing a 36-44 record with only one winning season. His first season in NE was 2000 and that was also a losing effort. The...

Re: Mike Zimmer begins offseason of ‘soul searching"

Spot on. Frazier's defense was embarrassingly bad and he was a "defensive coach". Jim, I would love to know why you believe Frazier was a "good coach". Because those were your exact words. And if you look at the guys track record, it's quite laughable. He cant hold onto a DC job for more than a yea...

Re: Bradford set a pretty impressive all time record

Teddy hasn't proven to be that good yet. Everyone was just hopeful that 2016 would the year he turned the corner. Sam proved he is reliable behind a #### OL and carried the offense this year. Teddy was an unknown before and now after this injury is even a more unknown. For that reason, going to Tedd...

Re: First live game in 56 years this Sunday

I hope you had a great time! That would be amazing to see a game in the 1961 and then another in 2016. Two different worlds. I took my kids to the Vikings-Lions game in 2009 so hopefully they can experience the same thing you have :) I wonder what football will be like in 55 years. It will probably ...

Re: Vikings RB Adrian Peterson wants to return, open to pay

I think 5mil with a 3mil bonus if he doesnt get injured and is available 90+% of the time.

Re: Vikings' defensive discord raises concerning questions

Roster wise let's leave that alone. There is speculation there, but you and I have beaten the crap out of it already. One thing I'll throw your way on it though: If they are going to continue with a more Shurmur/Andy Reid style of offense then they'll need to adjust their drafting to accommodate th...

:lol: Our defense was not better last year man. But keep going man you're on a roll PHP is correct... Our defense was not better for most of last year... it got better at the end which carried us into this year, but after the first 8 games it really started to slide and it hit rock bottom during th...

Re: Vikings' defensive discord raises concerning questions

Dallas had a starting QB go down, they threw a rookie in there and they are now at the top of the NFC. This happens to the Vikings who have a 3rd year QB go down (who hasn't been all that spectacular) and they get a seasoned QB instead of using a rookie and we miss the playoffs after 5-0. Dallas pro...

Re: Remaining Schedules

I think it would be awesome if somehow the Vikings came back for one game to beat the Packers. For all the BS Vikings fans have endured, that would put a band-aid on the wounds.
