WEEK 17: Bears @ Vikings Discussion

Post by 808vikingsfan » Wed Dec 27, 2017 2:44 pm

TV Map. Getting Burkhardt and Davis again.

Hoping the Vikings take care of business so we don't have to watch the scoreboard in the afternoon.

That is significant. The OL has been bad lately, especially so in the Carolina game when he missed.

Been thinking: move Berger to LG and Isidora at RG vs. Sirles at LG.

I don't think highly of Sirles.

Agree or disagree?

Also hoping we see some Jaleel with Stephen a little banged up. Word has it the team really likes him. Would be good to get him some reps.

Sires was good last year but he didn't have a very good year this year. Maybe he just needs more reps?

PFF had him at a 67 grade (49 out of 81). I recall him struggling quite a bit in pass protection, especially against Philadelphia. He's sitting around a 49 grade currently and coming off a poor game in relief of Easton.

I am not in a position to criticize this team given how well we have performed. It has been a fun season. However, I do have two small gripes:

Jaleel is a tremendous talent - trust me on that one. It has been very disappointing that he has been inactive a majority of the season. I personally believe he has more skill than Shamar (even though Shamar has done well).

I don't see why the team doesn't give Isidora a chance at guard. Sirles is a liability. Outside of his versatility, I don't exactly see what the team sees in him.

I think we've seen more of Stephen because he's good against the run and can spell Linval or play next to him in short yardage situations. On passing downs, usually Robison will rotate in at DT.

I read Trubisky is the fourth worst QB under pressure so getting to him will be key on Sunday.

Saw the map earlier this week, and I'm very excited that I get to watch the Vikes. Thank goodness the Panther game is later.

There's talk that since Easton will need to play center, they might kick Remmers in to guard and have Hill play RT.
