Re: When will we see AP back in a Vikings uniform?

I will always love Adrian Peterson. I've always been disappointed with him off the field-fathering 3/4 of a dozen children by who knows how many women isn't my idea of a role model-but I've been able to separate that from him on the field, where I enjoy watching him play. By and large the people wh...

Re: This Week's Enemy Fan Forums: The Atlanta Falcons

Just be prepared for the inevitable rookie mistakes. They will happen. Our hope is they don't happen with the frequency that most rookies suffer. I think Teddy has a good chance to beat the norm. He's a smart, talented kid who seems to have a great feel for the game. One big advantage that Teddy ha...

Re: Greenway has a broken hand

I like Hodges alot and as much as I like/respect Greenway it is obvious to me that he doesnt fit into the younger attacking Defense Zimmer wants to run. Getting rid of Peterson and Greenway's contracts next year saves us alot of money to sign some free agents to help our secondary and maybe another...

Re: When will we see AP back in a Vikings uniform?

In the current political climate surrounding the NFL (ie: with teams, corporations, sponsors, and the league itself all scrambling to do "what's right" and seemingly basing their idea of "what's right" almost exclusively on which way they feel public opinion is leaning) That's the truth and a big p...

Re: This Week's Enemy Fan Forums: The Atlanta Falcons

I've seen decent speed when he's catching passes in stride. It just seems to take him time to get moving. Of course, it could be because I'm subconsciously comparing him to what I should be seeing with AD. However I thought Banyard had a quicker "0-60", and not by a little. I don't know if you have...

Re: Toby Gerhart

Personally, I always thought he was a bit of a bum :wink:

I really don't think our run game would be going any better with him, and I don't think he'll be able to avoid getting injured as a primary ball carrier. He's just too stiff and lacks agility and flexibility.

Re: This Week's Enemy Fan Forums: The Atlanta Falcons

I also think he lacks "burst" more than open field speed. Not a quick-twitch guy. He's never going to be mistaken for Peterson, but actually I did think he showed burst on back to back plays. I'll try to find the game time when these runs occurred. I remember it surprised me at the time because it ...

Meachem does a terrific job blocking on Captain in the slot,
This was a huge block on that play for the Saints, and a good example of how important blocking by receivers is.

Re: This Week's Enemy Fan Forums: The Atlanta Falcons

Maybe they think he's Eddie Lacy (pretty much the same height/weight)? :confused: He's safe and probably the best pass blocker on the team, which is what it probably boils down to. Occasionally he shows some burst (back to back plays against NO at one point) which indicates to me that he is being "...

Re: Powers: Bridgewater goes from Vikings' future to present

Yeah to me its just Sullivan saying the guy can do the job and we can win with Teddy.. Sullivan was giving them quite a lot of smart ####, dead pan humor during that interview. It was pretty funny. its on vikings.com. I took it as a jab at the media obsession with QBs (and complete neglect of finer...

Re: This Week's Enemy Fan Forums: The Atlanta Falcons

I think your suggestion of spreading the formations more might be a good idea, a way to kickstart the offense. The biggest potential problem I see with it is that it could put more pressure on an already-struggling o-line. Absolutely a concern. Part of my thinking is that we could transition to a r...

Re: 2014-2015 Master Injury Thread

That's exactly who he is. Duccasse is a large body, little more. Fusco's loss is huge. That's a shame. Most of our running success was to the right side. Fusco and Sullivan were working well together. That's a real blow. Hopefully Yankey can step up and develop into a real starting quality G. Next ...

Re: This Week's Enemy Fan Forums: The Atlanta Falcons

I can't predict a win/loss but if we are 2-2 after these first 4 games, I would be pretty content with that given the level of competition. I just really hope we can find a way to our offense out of neutral and start putting up some points. I think our defense is good enough to make us a contender f...
