Re: Which would be better?

I can't believe we're already talking about whether it would be best to tank games to improve draft position.

Going 3-13 is NEVER good.

Re: Vikings Ranked 21# out of 32 teams

It's. Bleacher. Report. These "writers" aren't journalists. They have no access to anything ... players, coaches, GMs, team janitors, not even access to journalists. They're regular fans. Matter of fact, If any of you want to write for Bleacher Report, all you have to do is sign up. It's not the sli...

Re: Stadium thread

I'm really curious as to how this stadium will end up looking. One stadium that I really love, at least from TV and pictures, is the Seattle Seahawks' stadium. The fans are really close to the field, and it seems to be quite loud. Plus, it's stunning. So glad we can put the gnashing of teeth behind ...

Re: Vikings Sign WR Jerome Simpson

The bit about it being a stepping stone to other more dangerous drugs is one I think you'd have trouble proving. Not really. There are plenty of studies. Here's one of the first. A 2006 study by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York found that marijuana affects the human brain's natural ch...

Re: Vikings Sign WR Jerome Simpson

So does this mean that 87.3% of fatally injured drivers were not smokeing pot, and 73.1% of seriously injured drivers were also not smokeing pot? 12.7% percent isnt sounding too bad. You're not serious, right? 12.7 percent is a very significant percentage. And let's not forget ... this only account...

Re: Vikings Sign WR Jerome Simpson

Ya, He was busted with weed. Fer Chrissakes. When will this country just make it legal. Some of the most successful people I know smoke it. Not like he was selling Meth or Purple Drink. 0 people have died from weed. How many people die from Cigs? Booze? Cars? Food Allergies? The guy is now a convic...

Re: Brad Johnson a Bounty Target In 2006

I agree with those blasting Williams and I'm glad he was suspended indefinitely. It certainly won't break my heart if he never coaches in the NFL again. However, while the "money on the table", coach-sanctioned nature of bountygate has everybody justifiably upset and angry, I've said all along that...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

Im losing an arguement?? Im not having an arguement. In my opinion, the bounty side of what the Saints did was wrong. On the field, they played just fine. Yea, they got flagged and fined, who cares, that happens in every game. They didnt play a cheap game, noone will ever convince me they did, so i...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

^Again, its tackle football. You think they were cheap, I think the Saints played just fine. They were flagged for a couple, the ones they werent flagged for, no biggie, refs miss calls every game. You dont think the Vikings have ever benefitted from a non call???? Gimme a break. Classic "point to ...

Re: Stuff from our new GM

Im fine with trading down for more picks, IF it makes sense. 12 picks, but missing out on an elite player vs 10 picks and hitting on one more , is a no brainer. Trading down and getting more picks could work out terrific, however, if there are no trade partners or the Vikings dont think they can tr...

Re: MRI confirms torn ACL for Adrian Peterson

Yesterday, I was at my sister's house to celebrate Christmas. I was recording the game on the DVR and begged my brother NOT to tell me what happened. Because he is absolutely incapable of keeping his mouth shut, he told me anyway ... AND told me that both AP and Ponder got hurt. Said, "Peterson hurt...

Re: Stadium thread

Love Leslie Frazier's comment ... Commissioner [Tony] Bennett had the chance to shake Coach Leslie Frazier's hand after practice, and jokingly asked him if he could borrow some linemen to bring to the Governor's office. "If that's what we have to do Tony, we'll send Jared Allen, Kevin (Williams), an...

Re: Cable vs. Dish vs. Direct TV

I've had all three. Cable is cable. Nothing wonderful. Switched from DirecTV standard-def to Dish hi-def about three years back, when we got our first hi-def TV. It was, without a doubt, the worst decision I ever could have made. Biggest knock was that it just wasn't reliable. We experienced all kin...

Re: How do you feel about Ponder as our QB?

In theory, I agree but trading down requires a willing trade partner. When the Vikes were on the clock, ESPN reported that they were trying to trade down. They clearly didn't manage to make a trade so perhaps trading down really wasn't an option. Thanks for that info, Jim. I didn't get to watch the...
