Rodney Adams takes a step back in the depth chart with that fumble.

Good to see 1st team offense able to move the ball. Zimmer will be pissed at Rudolph, they've been putting a lot of focus on redzone situations. Offense still poor running on 2nd and long.

They can move the ball but can't score touchdowns. Same old thing Bradford had time all night to throw. This is a guy who gets paid 18 million and doesn't have a single playoff td pass. Yes he's an upgrade over teddy but who isn't? Bridgewater is horrible and we will be faced with yet another qb situation after this year. Favre was the only truly legit quarterback we've had in over a quarter century.

Not just Favre. Daunte Culpepper, especially the 2003 and 2004 seasons.

It's shocking to me that everyone just seems to assume the vikes can sleepwalk to a top 5 D and if they try will be top 2


Based on their finish last year it wouldn't shock me if they aren't a top 10 D, maybe even bottom half. They can't stop the run and teams caught on last year. And vikes have not addressed that deficiency

Time will tell

Corner depth is not good.

Los Perros part of me wants to agree but what did daunte do without moss? Nothing. Moss always has been and always will be my favorite Viking nobody could do what he did and nobody will ever do what he did. Everyone says it's only preseason and that is true but you can usually see signs of what is to come. Take away busted coverage on diggs 39 yard catch what are Bradfords stats then? Bad. Cook will be a good back Bradford is soft and always has been.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Heinicke couldn't hit the broad side of a barn... Awful.

Blair Walsh is such a bum. Any field goal he's made he's either pointed or looked over at the Vikings bench. Congrats dude, you're hitting preseason field goals. Too bad you can't hit them when they count. But he has the balls to taunt our sideline? That's laughable

Yeah that is no class move from Walsh ...

Sounds like the first string O played better.

I am wondering if we should move on from
some old vets Berger and Robison aren't getting
any younger and two of the young DT are
doing real good?

I am wondering also if we should move
one of DT to OG ? I think it's been done
a few times unless we're going to keep
ten D linemen or something

FWIW the last drive with Bucky was solid. He looked good.

Mac scares me. He's an outside guy they're trying to convert to slot corner. I'm not convinced it's the best idea. But we don't have many more options.

I was surprised how well the offensive line played, down two "starters." Pass protection was as good as I can remember in two years and Cook actually had a couple of rushing lanes. Improvement from horrible to...meh. Might be the best we can ask for until we get serious about our tackles.

Isidora had a bad game.
