Re: New Kickoff Rules

I just went back and looked at your original post. I missed the second box of quoted text. I'm going to blame it on the new layout :wink: . But hey, at least it confirms my thought!

I wonder if the team had knowledge of this particular change coming down the pipeline and it influenced the pick?

Re: New Kickoff Rules

Sounds like 1) there will be bigger returns; and 2) onside kicks will be easier. It'll be interesting to see how these changes play out during the preseason and then during the regular season. My bet is that kickoffs are eliminated within the next 5 years.

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I dislike this pick. Corner isn't a need for this team, and on this team a corner doesn't contribute until years 2 or 3. This young gentleman has character issues, is small, and I'm not impressed with the footage I've seen. I feel that he was drafted to come in as a special teams guy, which is not w...

Re: Travelling from UK week 3 vs Bills

Thanks to all of you for your advice. Were only in the city for 48 hours, so it wouldn't affect us too much where we stay. Just so were in a safe area near the stadium really. We will certainly be going through official ticket vendors. Of the only two i know of, Stubhub seemed to be cheaper. We rea...

Re: 2018 Schedule

Thoughts: - 4 prime time games. Guess thats what happens when you go 13-3 and make the NFCC - Surprised the opening game isn't @Eagles - Love that theres a long week before the Eagles game - Surprised they're not @Packers late in the season - No 3 road game stretches, so that's nice. Overall, looks ...

Re: Wright Signed

The Vikings tweeted a picture earlier showing Diggs, Thielen, and Wright out on a field with Cousins. At a minimum, at least Wright is putting in the time to get on the same page as his QB. (Side note: no mention of Treadwell being there). It was Mack Brown, not Wright. Whoops. I trusted someone wh...

I hadn't seen this reported yet? I saw that Cousins wants 3 years/$90mill guaranteed, but I hadn't seen anything indicating the Vikings were willing to offer that.

Re: Biggest Need On The Team?

This is really interesting. But I feel like you're missing a vital piece in this analysis... years as a HC. Of those 21 Super Bowl coaches who won within the first 4 seasons with a new team were actually new head coaches? That's a good question. 14 of the 21 coaches were first time NFL head coaches...

Re: 2018 Season opening game.

I feel like the opening game of the season will be Vikings @ Eagles. Due to the Eagles winning last night, they will get the first game of the season. Looking at their home games for next season I believe the best one for the NFL would be the Vikings. For the record, the Eagles have the following ho...

Re: Next years QB

Can someone please fill me in on why we’re so fascinated by Cousins? He had an outstanding year in 2016 (almost 5,000 yards) and two other 4,000 yard seasons. But he doesn’t win. In those three seasons the Skins were 9-7, 8-7-1, and 7-9. I don’t think he’s worth the kind of money people are talking ...

Re: Most hated teams?

Easy, and in order: 1) Packers. NFC North Rival. More of a sibling type hate though, but because we see them twice a year they're my most hated. 2) Eagles. Pricks. Can't stand their fans. Hate their city. Hate everything about them. 3) Saints. Didn't have a problem with them until '09. But since the...
