Re: Built in excuse

Chances are if your only argument for the Vikings doing anything but winning in dominant fashion is a giant conspiracy that doesn't even make sense, you already know the outcome will be a Vikings victory, you just haven't admitted it to yourself. If anything, the NFL would love another super fanbase...

Vikings Toughest Opponent That We Will Annihilate

First, let's apply the standard disclaimer. The past doesn't always equal the future and people tend to underestimate the depth of what we do not know. That fact could actually favor the Saints, but it also could favor the Vikes even more than we think as well. The Vikings defense is out of this wor...

Fibonacci Vikings

The Fibonacci sequence is how everything in nature manifests in a fractal pattern that creates an outward spiral. For some odd reason I noticed the Fibonacci numbers in the Vikings record (although they aren't all obvious and are subject to confirmation bias). The Fibonacci sequence is: 0,1,1,3,5,8,...

Re: Poet's 2018 Draft Crushes

I love the idea of Billy Price at 32 or perhaps moving up. He and Elflein give us a versitile combination of players that can play Center or guard and Berger and Easton have proven that flexibility is tremendously useful. They both played at Ohio State, and the more I think about it the better the i...

Re: Hahaha, the Packers give Adams $58M

Vikings have lots of cap room and lots of flexibility on how to approach the offseason.... But.... that is before: 1)Extending Barr, Hunter, Kendricks, Diggs all of which enter the final year of their contracts in 2018... that is a lot of money most likely... may be around $45M per year, just a ball...

Hahaha, the Packers give Adams $58M

The only smart thing they did is give him money up front so they aren't doomed forever.. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000899923/article/davante-adams-signs-4year-58m-packers-extension Their team is so QB dependent. As an NFL fan I am a little bit sad to see both the Colts and Packers despite...

Time of possession back in our favor by 5M 17s before concluding the drive.

Re: Vikings-Falcons game thread

Latavius running well too but latavius needs to protect the ball a little tighter it could cost him against some nasty defenses if he doesn't protect it better. Too bad Zimmer took the time out on 4th and 2 or we may have had 3 more points. Waynes would be so much better if he could learn to look fo...

Re: It's time to give Case Keenum his due

Whether or not Keenum is capable of leading us in the playoffs to some wins is a separate question of whether or not it's best to let him play the remainder of the in season games. With 9 wins we could probably coast into the playoffs with Kyle Sloter at QB at this point (not that we should). I thin...

Re: Rams @ Vikings Game Day Discussion Thread -- Week 11

Diggs engaged the defender... too bad if he didn't it may have been defensive PI.

3 and out... sigh

Our salary cap situation isn't that good

Looks like Vikings have drafted so well and developed well with Barr, Kendricks, Hunter and Diggs and Teddy Bridgewater and others but we had them all on rookie contracts. Now it is time to pay them all and it looks like we can't really do it and keep a QB and avoid rebuilding much less preserve eno...

Re: Must-Keep and Must-Have going into next year

Yes I know it's early but you guys know me. I love the offseason. Of course I dont want to take anything away from this season but I've been thinking about our needs going into next year. We dont have a TON of needs but there are definitely a few spots we could improve. I think our needs are as fol...

Re: Sam-Teddy-Case thread

I think Start Keenum vs Rams and Lions and give us some more data on how he does vs likely playoff teams while giving us maximum amount of options vs the playoffs but also bringing Teddy into play Falcons and Panthers and possibly the remainder of the schedule... The idea is by playing Keenum you do...

Re: Sam-Teddy-Case thread

Interesting perspective: using economics to decide. https://purpleptsd.com/how-game-theory-can-solve-the-vikings-qb-dilemma/ Really interesting but I think that only answers that starting Teddy at some point this year is good... The next equation is WHEN to start Teddy....and how important we rate ...

Kase or Bridgewater and when?

With 7 wins and 7 games left I believe we make the playoffs either decision... and even if that I sort in question it is still pretty good odds that isn't going to change too much regardless of QB decision. That leaves this a decision to prepare for the playofffs. Do we know for certain what Teddy p...
