I'm not really sure why you posted that or what you're trying to say but I guess you're right.

Do I really need to spell it out?

"... with Adrian Peterson and a slightly above average defense" isn't much different than what they had last year, except they got less from Peterson than in 2012 and more from a definitely above average defense.

It's the same story on repeat.

Exactly. Welcome to Vikings fandom, where last year's playoff pain prepares you for future playoff pain.

That's not bold, Mondry. Predicting the line won't suck would be bold! ;)

DP thought you would like this. :whistle:

Willie Beavers, who has primarily worked at OG, was working at LT today. #Vikings needed more bodies at the position with Kalil out.

Kalil is out again? Teddy is going to die.

Maybe Willie can just yell incoming to give Teddy a heads up.

:lol:


:smilevike:

I really thought Ponder was going to make it. I was really pulling for him because he's a nice guy and that's all that matters in NFL football. But with this QBR of 5.6 last night I've had to face the reality that it probably is never going to happen for Christian.

One note from this morning on @gmfb: The #KCChiefs have made teams aware that QB Aaron Murray is available via trade. A low-cost option.

I honestly thought shepard might make it as a backup ...
he had good push last year as a goalline blocker and sub
late in games...

I seen that. I have't really followed him this year. Would he be an improvement over what we have?
Probably another question is will we go with 3 QB's this year?

I'll take him over Hill until Heineke is back.

roto world talks about Pats shopping him, but the write up is not encouraging......

The MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Patriots are "shopping" Aaron Dobson.
They're shopping him because he'll be cut if/when they can't find a trade partner. Dobson has played over 100 snaps this summer, but has a modest six catches for 96 yards to show for it. Always hurt and mistake-prone, Dobson probably won't fetch a conditional day-three pick. Aug 30 - 2:48 PM

Hasan's is a two-bit wannabe that doesn't know anything.

That trade wouldn't make sense for the Vikings anyway.

Ok, I like Teddy, but 'Noone close to him'? You are severely overrating or underrating someone.

Sanchez, Foles, and Vick are all capable of Teddys production.

Dude, stop. We're not looking to match Teddy's 2015. He was poised for much better. We're not going to find much better.

Production, from what we've seen to this point, sure...But those others are also well capable of deeper levels of ineptitude than Teddy. The flip side of the coin, if you will.

Are they really though? I think if Teddy was to continue at his current pace for a couple more years he wouldn't be looked at much differently in terms of ineptitude, he just has the luxury of still being dubbed 'A young player'.

I think Vick would be a the perfect fit for the Vikings, and im very weary when it comes to old veteran aquisitions at QB.

'Poised for much better'? You probably thought Bridgewater was poised for 'much better' coming off his rookie year but that didn't happen.

Maybe you think Bridgewater was going to take a massive step and start putting up numbers that no backup could dream of touching, but I certainly don't. I think the biggest issue with this injury is development of Bridgewater, but their are several QBs available who have shown the ability to play as good or better then Bridgewater.

We will see how serious we are about competing. By who we go after.

But I Have a feeling Rick will give Mettenberger a call. Because the price would be right.
when Heinicke comes back let him & Mettenberger compete for whatever spot.
While Hill starts.
