Yes, I'm afraid I'm all too aware of of it. Doesn't mean I can't dream of it.
Who wins a Super Bowl first.

A: Kirk
B: Tua
C: Teddy
D: Burrow
E: None of the above.

Answer: Most likely E
For me, it's not who wins, but who gives the best chance to win a SB.

I think we all know what we get with Cousins. Going into his 9th year in the league, he's not going to change. You either build a perfect team around him or you'll be a 9 win team.

I'd take any other name on that list.

You have your right to be wrong. :rock: Just kidding. It wouldn't shock me if Tua or Burrow end up being better than Cousins. We already know Teddy won't be. However odds are one of Tua or Burrow ends up being better than Cousins and the other doesn't. Or both. Or neither. Draft is a crap shoot unless your talking sure things like Luck, Megatron, or Barkley.

We already know a guy who threw for as many yards and tds per start last year as Cousins won't be as good as Cousins? Seems like by your definition of good QB play he already is. :D

I've already seen enough of Teddy to know he isn't on Cousins level. YMMV.
I have seen a couple of game highlights of Tua and have read incredibly glowing reports on Burrow so I give each of them a chance to be as good or better at some point in their careers.
Once we get within a month of the draft I will start taking a close look at guys who are potential Vikings picks.

I think Burrow has a good chance to be better than Cousins, I do not see it in Tua

I'm on mobile, who is on it now?

Put Zimmer, Kendricks and Rudolph.
Zimmer is a player?
You're clearly going to contribute tremendously to this forum.

Save the snide remarks, guy. The OP didnt have to be taken too literal. Zim been here a while and the banner was already recently updated...seems fairly fluid to me...

What snide remark? The original poster never said coaches, just players so it is your fault

:lol: Alright.

I don't think anyone else deserves it, simple as that. Nothing wrong with thinking outside the box.

I did write "players" but honestly it can be anything Viking related.

The snide comment that I particularly don't like is when you told another poster "don't be stupid". Refrain from that sort of comment, it's only likely to start a fight and adds nothing to the conversation.
