Looks like Mullens isn't playing tonight. I guess they have seen enough from him to feel confident he's our #2. My read is that Mannion and Mond might be fighting for a practice squad spot, at best.

Cuts are tomorrow, right? We will know how it all shakes out soon enough.
Aug. 30: 80 to 53 players. Tuesday.

My son says the same thing you're saying, so I'm going to listen to both of you and chill out and not worry about it. :govikes:

I think McVay is sort of leading the charge here, and it's a copycat league... and KOC obviously came from that tree. I heard during the Broncos game that the Bills played their starters, however, so not everyone is doing it the "new" way. Cool that your kid watches games, mine couldn't care less! :lol: Then again, maybe that will save him from the heartache we've experienced.

I personally think Kirk needs a few series in preseason games, even if its with the seconds. He cant come out flat agaisnt the Packers in the first season game.

My son *and* daughter are Vikings fans... Not sure how that happened but they are both going to be sitting in Row 3 at the Bank for the home opener against the Packers... I told them if the Vikings lose I won't blame KOC or Cousins, but both of them for not getting hyped enough... :lol:

We got Mullen’s as a back up.nBut still feel we should draft a qb annually.

QBs are such a big gamble. For every Mahomes ,Hebert there’s a bunch of ponders, I will add Mond. Look at Cleveland. We got cousins now. But how long. Mond didn’t work, Stanley didn’t, but I believe one has to keep trying. When cousins is done. We need one to come in.

I guess one can gamble We can can get a stud with a couple firsts. But unfortunately this gamble would probably cost top 3

Without a top qb it’s rare a team is going anywhere

The last regime certainly didnt know how to draft a QB. I am hoping this one does.

IMO, it’s the biggest gamble. More fail than succeed. How many super star QBs have we drafted in 60 yrs? I agree with you on R.S. Choices

The last regime? How about the last 40 years? Vikings have not had a franchise quarterback since Tarkenton

I have never thought of Culpepper as a franchise quarterback, he just did not play long enough and was on bad terms with the Vikings :confused:

Culpepper wasn't on bad teams. He had two HOF WR's and R Smith sitting back there. Plus his OL was very good. Birk at center, Dixon and Stringer on the right and Stuessie and Lacina. Dixon and Stringer were over 700 ILBs and that was decades ago. They wore teams out. Pep was a mental midget and that did him in. The Giants confused him easily when he was shut out in the 2001 champ game. Moss made stiff QBs look good. That's a lot of O talent no matter how you slice it.

No, I mean terms, not teams, Culpepper wanted out after Vikings wanted him to rehabilitate in Minnesota because they were not satisfied with his level of treatment in Florida so Culpepper refused their request and asked Vikings to trade him or release him so he went out on bad terms
