Re: Vikings Vs. 49ers Pregame Thread

I'm not much of a prognosticator, but here's what I believe. Jimmy Garappolo had a great run at the end of last season. A lot is being made of the fact that he's 7-0 as a starter in the NFL (and that he dates porn stars). This may very well be his rude awakening. When he went 5-0 last year at the en...

Re: 53 man roster...Cuts and trades

Quigley was 29th in the league in net punting yards. He was Jeff Locke 2.0. He could pin the ball really well but did everything else poorly. I read Wile was 2nd in net put yards and hang time. Small sample size but I don't think it's a very risky move. Yeah, after thinking about it, this isn't any...

Re: 53 man roster...Cuts and trades

So let me get this straight.

We cut Ryan Quigley and signed a guy who has played in FOUR career games? I could see if we cut Ryan Quigley and signed the second coming of Ray Guy. But Wile (E. Coyote) has 12 career punts.

I think Spielman is becoming an excellent GM. But I honestly don't get this.

Re: Khalil Mack headed to the Bears

Does Gruden, like, know what he's doing? No, he doesn't. If I were a Raiders fan, I'd be looking to run Gruden out of town on a rail. I realize Raiders' ownership is among the "poorest" in sports, but they're moving to Vegas next year. They'll be made out of money. As a Vikings fan, I hate this. Di...

Re: Preseason Week 4 Post Game Thoughts

I was practicing golf until 9. Watched the 4th quarter.

Looks like Brandon Zylstra played pretty well, and Daniel Carlson bounced back. The team also got a long look at guys like Holton Hill. Cut-downs are going to be interesting.

Other than that, I'm glad the preseason is over. Bring on the 49ers!

Re: Cousins got a larger offer elsewhere...

Wasn't it just a few years ago where the Vikings couldn't attract any high profile FAs? Now they seem to be coming here for less $. This organization is definitely headed in the right direction. The Stadium, practice facility, coaching staff... I keep saying, sign Zimmer long term and it will just ...

Re: Three Surprise Cuts You Might See From The Vikings

Thanks Kapp ! I appreciate it. I was torn between Coley and Beebe. Reason I went with Beebe is because Coley has been banged up. And Beebe has been making some plays. Overall, I think Coley is more talent but I'm not sure how they will treat his injury when it comes to cut time. As for the PS, I de...

Re: Sheldon Richardson Changing His Game 

Yeah, I really don't think Felippo is here long. Might even become a HC as soon as next season. I don't know about George Edwards. Always wary of these coordinators whose HC specialized in the same thing when they were coordinators. It's not to slight Edwards, but we don't really know. Here's what ...

Re: Three Surprise Cuts You Might See From The Vikings

I don't see Newman or Sendejo getting cut. I can see Seimien possibly but not the other two. I would go with.... QB (3): Cousins, Siemian, Sloter RB (3): Cook, Murray, Boone FB (1): Ham WR (5): Diggs, Thielen, Treadwell, Wright, Beebe TE (3): Rudolph, Morgan, Conklin OL (10): Reiff, Compton, Elflie...

Guys, we're blessed to have several excellent coaches. I get daily notices from Sports Illustrated with links to articles. One of the articles today was "NFL Head Coaches-To-Be: Seven Coordinators To Watch in 2018." No 3. on the list: John DeFilippo. No 4 on the list: George Edwards. Andre Patterson...

The problem I see with this analysis Kapp is you're thinking more like a coach than a typical fan. We don't allow that here.
Thank you for making me laugh today!

Re: Three Surprise Cuts You Might See From The Vikings

You're sure about this? Sure? I'm not even sure I'll make it to work today. But if I were a betting man, I'd bet Siemian ends up being the No. 2. That doesn't mean I think he's better that Sloter, and it doesn't mean I think Sloter gets cut. I've just seen this too many times to count. The experien...

Re: Running Backs? How Many?

J Kapp, just curious, would you mind sharing what Vikings podcasts do you listen to? Mainly the official Vikings podcasts ... TCO Pressers, Wobcast, KFAN stuff, 9-to-noon with Paul Allen, etc. I've listened to a number of other ones, but most of them are lame. Vikings Update is OK, I guess. Purple ...

Re: Three Surprise Cuts You Might See From The Vikings

Trevor Siemian is not getting cut. The purpose of a backup quarterback isn't just to play if the starter goes down. It's also to help prepare the starter for each game. Siemian has 30 starts under his belt. Sloter has never taken a snap in a regular-season game. You tell me who's more valuable to Ki...
