MBT's arm is awesome. I like his poise. MBT over sage?? Is it just me or is Audie Cole everywhere on the field?

The term fan comes from FANatic or fanatical.

Cole should be starting at MLB.

And Bethel-Thompson is the best QB on this team, with Sage a close second.

I like what I have seen from Audie Cole tonight even though it's been against 2nd and 3rd stringers. Hopefully he can continue to work his way up the depth chart and continue this type of play.

Bethel-Thompson has a rocket arm, but no accuracy and even less touch on his passes. Not even worth signing to the practice squad after he gets cut.

I'm sure others have said the same, but It's hard for me to take much from this game when the teams meet so soon in week 3. Nothing is what it seems, for all we know they had Ponder misfiring on purpose and demonstrating poor footwork for strategic reasons. And bad defense to avoid giving any schemes away. Go Vikes!

True, that 2nd string OL was atrocious.

Was that Chris Cook that couldn't catch the qb cabernacle???
That's a little disturbing.

PCL on Guion. Out 1-2 weeks. Chance for Ballard?

Just watched it again. Yeah, Cook didn't look too quick.
