Dude some of these are not accurate. Anthony Harris is currently on our team and until he is not, safety is not a need. Especially if we could come to terms with him next year. Center and OLB? Our weak side backer plays about 20 snaps a game and when it’s gedeon he actually plays pretty well especially vs the run. As for center, we literally just drafted one, was great at run blocking, bad at pass blocking, but idk who in the world gives up on their first round pick after 1 season. As for TE2?? We have Irv Smith who looks like a stud in the making and is almost in the mold of a big bodied WR.

Also, it’s DAY 3 of free agency!! I can go to just about any team and list off giant holes all over their team. The point of free agency and the draft is to fill those holes. No less there very well could be guys in house that could fill those roles just fine. Like you’re saying our roster is pretty much bare bones when we’re literally just entering the offseason? Where do you think all these players that are free agents came from? Other teams and in turn, it out holes into their lineups too. I don’t know why I’m even explaining this. You don’t even make any sense
It's accurate as hell.
Harris is being shopped. I included him because the expectation is that he would be moved. I included both outside linebacker and Nickelback because combined the play starter minutes and both positions should be improved upon. Ben Gideon does not play well, he's awful.

I also realized that it is early in free agency but we currently do not have the funds to address critical needs. I understand that all teams at this time have huge needs but we are essentially short 12 starters out of 24 starters players.
Ben gedeon is not awful. He just doesn’t make the splashy plays but when he was out and Wilson played for him, you definitely could tell that he was missed. The thing with gedeon is he is hardly ever in the wrong spot. He is very underrated but regardless, the weakside backer in this defense plays very little so as long as you have a guy there that does his job, that’s all you need. You basically are picking every position that doesn’t have an all star at it and saying it’s a position of need.

Harris is being shopped but again, until he is gone, that position is not a need. You’re attempting to make the list worse than it actually is to help prove your point. Harris is on the team until further notice. Period, I don’t care what you “expect” is going to happen. At this point, you expect us to be terrible and go into the 2020 season with 12 holes all over the team too. Like the draft and free agency won’t take place in the mean time

You're forgetting the part about people stepping up. I totally disagree with you that we have 12 holes to fill. Go look at my edited prior post.
I saw that but that's a bird in the bush mentality. Barring any major improvement from Bisi and Watts... These holes are going to remain holds
Check my post. I didn't count them in the ready to step up players. Total agreement that we are lacking big time at the WR. We might have somebody to step up at the 3T out of the myriad of possibilities, but not counting on Watts to do so.

4. Brett Favre (1.52)
5. Warren Moon (1.49)

If regular season passing stats in non-clutch situations is your thing, Cousins compares favorably to Rodgers recently. If actual success in the post season is what you care about, it is absurd that one QB is making as much as the other.

In all seriousness, I am pretty upset about my favorite team giving 150 million fully guaranteed dollars to a QB over 5 years. I am allowed to be upset about that, and I am also not the only one who is.

I am also stuck in a house with a son who is quarantined while we find out if his classmate gave him Covid and I am very bored.

So you rather see Vikings give 150 million fully guaranteed dollars to Mannion instead of Cousins?

I was just posting some fun comparisons between Cousins and Rodgers, yet you took it upon yourself to be offended and go after the poster, not the post. Why?

In all seriousness, I am pretty upset about my favorite team giving 150 million fully guaranteed dollars to a QB over 5 years. I am allowed to be upset about that, and I am also not the only one who is.

I am also stuck in a house with a son who is quarantined while we find out if his classmate gave him Covid and I am very bored.
So you rather see Vikings give 150 million fully guaranteed dollars to Mannion instead of Cousins?
Are those my only two options?

Yeah since there is not really any better quarterbacks available in free agency

Record in the playoffs:
Rodgers : 10-8
Cousins: 1-2

Playoff stats:
Rodgers: 2.2 TDs/game, .667 ints/game, 7.6 YPA, 100 passer rating
Cousins: 1 TD/game, .333 int/game, 6.9 YPA, 86 passer rating (all below average stats)

SB record
Rodgers: 1-0
Cousins: 0-0

Career record (not just cherry picked years)
Rodgers: 113-60-1
Cousins: 44-42-2

4th quarter down by a score or less(clutch factor):
Rodgers: 27 tds, 14 ints, 7.5 YPA in 86 games
Cousins: 14 tds, 14 ints, 7.1 YPA in 41 games and as a Viking: 3 TDs, 3 Ints, 6.8 YPA going 1-9.

Total cap hit over Cousins 5 years here in MN:
Rodgers: 150 million
Cousins: 150 million


If regular season passing stats in non-clutch situations is your thing, Cousins compares favorably to Rodgers recently. If actual success in the post season is what you care about, it is absurd that one QB is making as much as the other.
You just have to speak on everything, don't you.
:lol: :lol: Well it's a post talking up Cousins and he has to find a way to downplay it

Stump I was just sharing some fun stats about our players. I wasn't making any statement or trying to prove anything. Yet you found the need to try to mitigate the positive nature of my post. Why?

Go after the poster and not the post? Come on dude. Out of all people, you should be the last one making that statement. VV didnt say anything wrong. And really, you're upset about the Vikings having Cousins on the team? That's news to all of us. But let's be honest, stuck at home being bored or at work busier than hell, you were replying with stats downplaying Cousins regardless and that is a fact.

On a more serious note, I hope everything is okay with your son.
