Ooo, a look into my post history might say otherwise. Especially in the game day threads! I wanted to make this post after feeling guilty about being super negative about the 2016 season. Thanks for the shout out though!

I like that people contributed to this thread after my original post. Another poster on Reddit recently said we have a lot of bright spots on this team just unfortunately we also have a black hole on the offensive line which prevents the rest from shinning right now. I agree.

I like Rhodes and Captain a lot as well. In fact, I don't think CB is any kind of problem for the Vikings right now.
Well agreed but for the record I wasn't suggesting we cut Trae....just suggesting we should keep Newman another year

I would disagree here on some level. CP is finally developing and look what they've accomplished with Rhodes. The failure seems to remain in the inability to develop the o-line.

Mirror image of 2006.

Hope it ends the exact same way, too.

Vikings would win.

Apparently you're forgetting when Rhodes was first here. Or Sendejo. Thielen has gotten substantially better. Captain looked downright bad at times, and now he's holding his own. Shamar Stephen.

Hunter has improved.. I could go on.
