Re: Easton Out for the Year

Lost in all this, or at least not mentioned, is how the death of Sparano means even with young or new guys on the Oline, we don't really know anything about the guy(s) coaching them up. We need good players, yeah, but the Oline is so much about technique, positioning and assignment football that th...

Anybody feel different about this with Easton out for the year?
Yep.

I said any trade would be made out of desperation.

This probably qualifies.

Re: Diggs!!!

I expect Kirk to have a big year. Im concerned about post season. Our offense was manhandled in Phi. Most of that fell on the line. Were worst today I was listening to a Vikings podcast the other day, and Paul Allen was asking Zimmer whether he's spent time talking with John DeFilippo about what th...

Re: How do you feel about watching the preseason?

I watch. But I only watch because I love watching the Minnesota Vikings. I absolutely live for the football season. As for the games, I couldn't care less. They mean absolutely nothing. It's fun to watch certain players, but even for that, I don't put much stock in it. Last year was a perfect exampl...

Re: Diggs!!!

In 2016, I think he was third. It is possible that the talking heads have influenced my view of him but to be honest, I usually disagree with the media on their evaluations of players. I don't think Kurt is a bad QB at all. I think he is the best QB we have had here in some time (I'm a Bridgewater ...

Re: Total Access - Film Breakdown of Kirk Cousins

The Diggs thread and OL thread were getting off topic so I'll post my Kirk comments here. I wish I could be as confident as you are about Cousins. He has shown he makes poor decisions under pressure and also in the redzone. His 13 fumbles /13 INTs concern me as well. Also have to disagree about Kee...

Re: Pete Morelli: Anthony Barr’s hit on Aaron Rodgers would be a penalty this year

The other thing is Rodgers getting hurt could be a blessing in disguise for him and the Packers. It showed GBs management that they were incompetent on many other levels and Rodgers covered a lot of it up. So if it helps the Packers improve, the leagues favorite team could contend seriously again. ...

Re: What Does Everyone Think About Trading for an O-Lineman?

You guys do realize that Clancy Barone was the O-line coach in Denver in 2015, when they won the Super Bowl, right? He sorta knows what he's doing. Also, Andrew Janocko was Tony Sparano's right-hand man for the past two years. I think the Vikings are going to see if their young linemen continue to d...

Dude. It's rhetorical.

The Packers are the media's darlings. Of course people are going to pick them to win the Super Bowl.

Re: Offseason Thoughts on Our NFC Compatriots

Exactly. The bills and titans don’t even come close to making the playoffs in the NFC. And in regards to the patriots, their division is disgustingly bad. The bills, jets and dolphins will all be under .500 this year. I think it was sporting news that posted their record predictions for everyone th...

Re: Diggs!!!

I love this. Diggs is such a great receiver and a good person. The best is yet to come with this guy. Think about this. In Diggs' three seasons, he's only had one quarterback, Sam Bradford, who could really take advantage of his ability to get deep. But the Vikings couldn't protect Bradford long eno...

Re: Offseason Thoughts on Our NFC Compatriots

Defense travels. Ours is going to be better than ever. With Zimmer's scheme, it's all about knowing what you're supposed to do and when. Most of these guys have been in the system for 4 years, and they communicate so well. Our defense is going to be really good, and that means we win the division wi...
