Reiff sucks
I still think he could be a solution at LG.

O'Neill, Reiff, Elflein, ?, Remmers would have the makings of a very good run blocking OL. They would still be suspect against outside speed rushers, particularly if Kirk doesn't learn to STEP UP in the pocket...which he will never learn.

Remmers shouldn't even be a backup.

Remmers did above average on the whole as a tackle, and actually is one of the better run blocking tackles. He's terrible as a guard and has been consistently for two full years.

Riley Reiff, team captain, declined comment on way out of #Vikings locker room.
Reiff sounds like a champ of a leader and team captain.
Are you being serious?

Best list I could find. They will probably have to address it in the draft.
Lousy list. It has Diggs as a Free Agent. I wouldn't trust any name on it after seeing that.


I THINK(?) this list might be a bit better.

:lol:

I thought it was obvious too. As a captain, he should talk to the media. I do understand the desire NOT to after games like that though.

Reiff would talk to them if he just signed a 40 million extension I bet.

Don't look now but former Rams number two pick Greg Robinson played pretty well at LT for Cleveland in the final 8 weeks of the season and is a free agent. Cleveland wants him back. He has experience at guard and a lot of untapped talent. He also would be relatively cheap. The Vikes need to get a great oline coach in here.
