A former NFL team doctor is speculating in an article by watching the video that Dalvin Cook suffered a torn ACL. sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/profoot…

Mike Zimmer said the Vikings are concerned about Dalvin Cook's ACL, but will see after a MRI.


I really hope not.

Hoping it's just a sprain/strain... fingers crossed.

Everyone knows this offense sucks and we'd need the D to make plays. And honestly Im tired of Rick and Zimmers offense. And I doubt it gets any better this year.

It's gotten considerably better. Guess you haven't been watching this year. Going into this game offensively, we were 12th in the league in points, 2nd in total yards, 2nd in passing yards and 11th in rushing yards. Keep going though, you're on a roll :lol: :lol:

I think Thielen had that sence of urgency when he caught the ball because he was trying to go for extra yards instead of covering and falling. Unfortunately it lead to a fumble.

The McKInnon fumble on the stupid Wildcat play was a definite turning point. And Forbath missing a gimme FG didn't help... Waynes should have picked off Stafford in the end zone, but dropped it... and then there was Dalvin Cook fumbling as he got hurt... and then Thielen also coughed it up when we had a glimmer of hope.

It was a team effort.

There were four dropped INTs. Kendricks missed at least three tackles. There was zero pass rush if we didn't blitz.
We just invested tons of money into this defense. That is why I am done with Zimmer. He was horrible out coached to the point that the entire team sucked.

Again I couldn't disagree more. Hunters first sack wasn't a blitz. Pretty sure his second wasn't either but I could be wrong. To say "we can't get sacks without blitzing" is false #1 and #2 that's the point of blitzing. And it obviously worked given we sacked them 5 times and they were 3-13 on third downs. It seems that you and PK just want to continue to overlook those stats. Zimmer is one of the best defensive coaches in the NFL. And if you don't believe that, then I have nothing else to say to you. This defense dominated Detroit today. Had them stuck at 7 for most of the game and possibly the whole game if Cook doesn't blow his knee out and fumble. 14 points, 3-13 on third downs and 5 sacks. That is an excellent defensive performance. But I guess since Eric Kendricks missed 3 tackles and we didn't pick a ball off we should be done with Mike Zimmer and his defense. Makes a lot of sense :confused:

Of course I am. Maybe with 5 years you know, maybe win one playoff game? Spieldope sucks because the players overall suck. The Bradford trade was a mistake. Not getting any decent OLinemen ever was his fault (might be better this year finallY).

The question is. If you are happy with below avg. Are YOU a Vikings fan. Maybe you should expect wins? Heck maybe a Superbowl? Hold your team accountable for sucking.

Yeah the Bradford trade was a mistake and a good starting QB was going to magically fall out of the sky into our starting lineup after Teddy went down. We should've took that approach I guess :roll:

Bradford isn't a good starting QB, so your logic is flawed.

Another point, I wouldn't have went into last year with Hill as the backup. I would have looked to upgrade either via FA or draft a mid rounder, you know a Dak Prescott type. No I wasn't high on him personally, but rounds 3-4 would be ideal place to look for a potential really good backup/possible starter. By having such poor options behind Teddy forced Spieldope to make a huge mistake.

Yeah I guess 20 tds 5 ints and almost 4000 yards in 15 games isnt a good starter :whistle:
