I'd be ok with Osweiler.

Sign Osweiler. With DeFilippo, I can see him actually reaching his potential as a fringe-good player while behind Cousins. Denver sucked and Houston wasn't a good fit for him.

Ugh idk Osweiler is gross. Gabbert played halfway decent in SF with no talent around him. Either way, I’m on the Luke Falk, Mason Rudolph and Kyle Lauletta train in the 2nd-4th round somewhere

Not a fan of Osweiler on the Vikings, mainly because he's huge and immobile, and I have a feeling DeFilippo is going to take advantage of Cousins' ability to throw on the run. The best teams don't have to change their offense when they put the backup under center.

I'm also not a fan of Osweiler on the Vikings because, well, he kinda stinks. I'd rather have Gabbert as a backup. But I wouldn't want him to have to start 14 games like Keenum did.

Sloter should be the back up and they should draft one imo.

Geno Smith is not a good backup. Or a good QB for that matter. He holds a whopping 29:36 TD to INT ratio and has a career completion percentage of 57.9. That is as bad as it gets. I live in NY. I've seen this guy play many of times. He's terrible. I'll pass

with the numbers being what they are, I'd suggest trading for Teddy Bridgewater! :v):

Of the guys on the list, who is better?

I hate that young And aren't given the time to develop. Here we have a young guy who had a bad rookie season. His sophomore season he improved and since then, he's been on the bench. Geno still has the ability to play and would be a good backup in my eyes. With the amount spent on QB1, we don't really have 10 million to throw at a QB2.

Matt Moore first of all. I would consider Gabbert. Why not just draft one? That’s what I want to do. Who says we need to sign one? It’s not like we have a rookie starter that needs a vet behind him. We have a veteran starter. So get a rookie to back him up. I’m sure he would be better than Geno Smith.

And you also said “I want Geno Smith, a good backup”. What classifies him as a “good” backup?? Because he’s never been good. Ever.

Yeah I think some people think a good backup is anyone who has started a game in the NFL. But if they were horrible then just having experience doesn't make them someone you want starting on Sunday.

Could be some surprise cuts like Rudy. Either way, this is more than doable to keep those guys. There was an article on exactly how we could do it.
Prior to Cousins, we were slated to be $67 million under the cap going into the 2019 season, when we'll need to re-sign Kendricks, Hunter, etc. I have every confidence that Spielman and Co. will work the numbers and sign who needs to be signed.

We as a fanbase need to wake up to the fact that we have one of the better organizations in the NFL. The Wilfs have done everything imaginable to bring us facilities and players. Spielman had dealt shrewdly in the draft and the occasional free agent signing. Mike Zimmer has been tremendous -- 39 regular season wins in 4 years, having taken over for a rebuild. It speaks volumes that Kirk Cousins likely could have gotten $10 million more somewhere else but chose the Vikings.

Obviously we still don't have that pesky Lombardi trophy, so there's no way we can call ours "the best" organization or even elite. But in every other aspect, we're there. In my opinion, the future is bright for the Vikings.

IMO, the right guy to be a backup for this roster is an aged vet QB. The Shaun Hill type player. This roster is very strong, so they just need a guy who is going to come in on the cheap, make a few plays, and be a game manager while the starter recovers from whatever booboo he got.

If we were not an elite roster, I'd say just roll with Sloter.

A rookie backup would be a bad idea. It also flies against what this team typical does. Routinely we have a starter, a vet and a young development talent.

Sloter is no longer a rookie.
