Funny thing is i have a coworker who isnt very knowledgeable about football. We watch some games here since i work every other sunday and even he was cracking jokes later in the season about "lets see how many stupid penalties they make on third down today". Im in no way,shape or form kidding about this. If he sees it it should be clearly visible. They have an issue getting off the field on third down and it has nothing to do with scheme or overall defense

He may be a fit for the 2 year plan. Will depend if they think they have an in-house short-term solution at RG.

You don't need redundancy in the two year plan. Just a steady make do starter at every position and a young guy looking to take his place.

It seems odd to consider 3-4 years out of a player a "bandaid" at what point are they just playing a position?

Is Brady a bandaid for the Patriots until they find their "forever" QB? :lol:

I got a charge out of this statement by Zimmer.
@Vikings
5h
Coach Zimmer doesn't want to slight the defensive side of the ball when looking to improve the #Vikings offense.

Isn't that what he done to the offense.... :lol:

Sirles is a solid backup. I don't mind bringing him back. He could even play RG this season while they groom a young player to take over.

actually out of all out tackles he is only ones I wanted to keep.

I am hoping we try and grab the lions Tackle and possibly another.
I don't think there is a deep pool of tackles again this year.


we should have some money if we don't retain Kalil, Peterson and few others.
