No. He'll command a king's ransom as a free agent after this year.

If he even plays close to this level all season he will deserve it. It sure is nice to have a decent offense again. I know it's the saints but what the hey. Sun is shining on a dog's butt today.

Wow, Barr's name was mentioned. I wish he was half as good as Kendricks.

Guys, this was an impressive performance.

I was hoping we could simply hang on for a close win. This was a dominating performance. These last couple of drives by NO against the prevent mean nothing.

Gotta bring it in a big way next week. The Steelers will be tough.

Not sure what you're talking about. He's made some solid plays tonight. We're in prevent right now so to judge him off of this doesn't say much. He's been in on a lot of tackles at the line and had a nice 3rd down stop on that swing pass

Pittsburgh is a scary good team. Have to play mistake-free and pressure the old man in the pocket.

I'm okay with prevent in garbage time. No injuries.

Crap. I hate that. I really wanted us to keep Brees out of the end zone.

I think Waynes and Barr are the 2 most over-hyped players we have.

My god dude take a hike tonight. We just played a great game and you still find something to whine about. You also said this team was a mess, which was so accurate on your part :whistle:

Browns gave 'em fits yesterday, though. They'll be favored, but I wonder if we can't pull off a game like we did at Carolina last year.

Well, Brees got a TD pass in garbage time.

Let's get Dalvin to 100 yards in garbage time.

My problem with Zimmer is he doesn't get the stars out of the game. Damn!

I think we played well. Let's end it at that. You're judging Waynes and Barr off of a prevent defense and judged this team off of their preseason games. You also wanted Murray instead of cook who went for 127 tonight. I think you need to reconsider your judgements because it isn't helping your cause

Pitt will be a much bigger, more formidable opponent then the Saints.

Like a CB that never gets challenged, even though you don't hear his name called, it doesn't mean he's not doing his job. Maybe his responsibilities in this game was to cover and take out the TE and RB. I thought he was active tonight

I missed a handful of plays tonight but the ones I've focused on Barr I haven't liked. He left a bad taste in my mouth last year. I need to see more.

Great game... Gotta say I'm surprised after watching the mess they were exhibiting in pre-season. They really put it together. Granted, the Saints defense is kind of a favorable matchup, but it was sure nice to see a vertical passing game and real variety in the playcalling. The running game was working. The OL was doing a good job. Pass protection was pretty darned good, and good things happen when a good QB has time.

This was a great evening of Vikings football... SKOL!

435 yards of total offense. Not bad.

Hopefully that line will keep giving Bradford time this season and Bradford will keep on sucking!

But we're still a mess right? And cook shouldn't have been in? And Barr and Waynes are overrated because they didn't look good in a prevent defense? New Orleans offense has been just as good or better than Pitts offense over the years and we just shut them down. And Pitts D just gave up 18 to the browns. Let that sink in

And the defense stuffed the run all night. I'd like to see Jaleel rotated in there

O-line performed well, though I thought Easton was very spotty.

Best part? No Clemmings.

No injuries, right? That has to be a record.

Waynes has little awareness/ball skills.

Mac didn't get exposed.

Run-D surprised me.

Sam, Diggs, AT = A+
