  1. Week 11 non-Viking games

    Week 17, my man... Week 17.
  2. Week 11 non-Viking games

    aww, that's a shame.
  3. Week 11 non-Viking games

    Tonight’s game between the Packers and Seahawks isn’t exactly a “must-win” game for both teams. But it’s pretty darn close. Both the Packers and Seahawks came into this season with legitimate playoff aspirations, but the loser of tonight’s game will have a very uphill climb to the playoffs. Seattle would fall to 4-6 with a loss. Catching the Rams in the NFC West is already realistically out of reach, but dropping to 4-6 would make the wild card a long shot as well. It would leave Seattle well behind 6-3 Carolina and 5-3-1 Minnesota, but also behind 4-5 Dallas, Philadelphia and Atlanta. And, of course, a loss tonight would drop Seattle a game further behind Green Bay as well. Green Bay would fall to 4-5-1 with a loss. With six games to go, they’d have a very hard time catching both the 6-3 Bears and the 5-3-1 Vikings in the NFC North. The Bears and Vikings play on Sunday night, and the winner of that game will be the favorite in the division. And the loser of Bears-Vikings would remain comfortably ahead of the Packers for the final wild card spot. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/11/15/packers-seahawks-loser-will-have-a-very-uphill-climb-to-the-playoffs/

    Diggs is fine, Thielen is the one who's hurting right now.

    It seemed fitting that the first public event to honor the memory of Diane Sims Page featured a room full of Page Scholars. Diane, wife of Hall of Fame defensive tackle and retired Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page, passed away on Sept. 29 after a battle with breast cancer. On Wednesday, Diane was honored by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton, who declared Nov. 14, 2018, as Diane Sims Page Day. Nearly 100 current and former students who have received scholarships from the Page Education Foundation attended the presentation at the University of St. Thomas Wednesday night to honor a woman who has made such an impact on their lives. Merone Melekin, who is Gov. Dayton’s Assistant Chief of Staff of Scheduling, presented the proclamation to Justice Page on behalf of Gov. Dayton, who was unable to attend the event in person. Melekin is also a Page Scholar alum. Melekin recalled her personal experience with the Page Education Foundation and specifically with Diane. She recounted her first in-person interaction with Diane several years ago. Diane remembered specific details from Melekin’s application, even though thousands of students have passed through the program, and made a personal connection. https://www.vikings.com/news/gov-dayton-honors-late-wife-of-alan-page-with-diane-sims-page-day?sf202385583=1

  7. Week 11: VIKINGS (5-3-1) at Bears (6-3)

    Both of the Vikings’ top receivers are on Wednesday’s injury report, but they fell into different categories. Stefon Diggs was a full participant for the team, which fits into his vow to play against the Bears on Sunday night. Diggs did not play against the Lions in Week Nine, but the bye week seems to have made his rib injury a non-issue. Adam Thielen did play in the win over the Lions, but was held under 100 receiving yards for the first time this season. He was limited in Wednesday’s session with low back and calf issues. There’s been no sign of concern that he won’t play this week and the next two days will let us know if that changes. Linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring) and safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) were both out of practice, which may be an indication that both will be out of action again this week. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/11/14/stefon-diggs-full-adam-thielen-limited-in-vikings-practice/
  8. Motor City MoJo: Detroit Lion updates

    The Lions have placed TJ Lang on injured reserve today, ending his second straight injury-plagued season in Detroit. Lang signed a three-year, $28.5 million contract with the Lions, but there’s talk that the Lions will release him this offseason rather than pay him the $9 million he’s due to make in 2019. Lang’s contract now looks like an expensive mistake by Detroit. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/11/14/packers-cheap-approach-with-t-j-lang-was-smart/

    Adrian Peterson: “I’m feeling good. Last week I actually started feeling all the way healthy. My shoulder, I’m back to bench pressing. I hadn’t did that in three weeks. So, I’m back to kind of doing the normal things that I was able to do. My ankle is feeling good. My body is just kind of feeling refreshed. The second half has been a blessing to me. It was a grind the first eight weeks and here now, as I stand in front of you guys, my body is feeling amazing. That’s big considering that we just started the second stretch and we have a big game coming up.” https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/11/15/adrian-peterson-says-ankle-shoulder-are-healed-he-feels-amazing/
  10. Sshhhh, don't tell me how the second half ends...

    Cousins: “It was good to get some time off to rest and recover, at the same time, I’m ready to go now for this stretch run of seven games. Hopefully we play well enough that we play beyond that. All I know is I’ve had a bye after Week 4, and I’ve had a bye after Week 9. I’d much rather have the bye after Week 9. I think it helps to have something to look forward to as you’re pushing through the early stretch of the season and then to work from a place of rest going forward to the end of the season. I think it helps. Ultimately, this season will tell if it came at the right time." "We did talk about where we are ranked statistically on some different things, as well as some analytics of what other teams, opponents are going to see when they look at us. That was helpful to see. We’ll keep trying to improve in those areas. It was everything from third-and-4-to-6 to trying to be better on first downs in the red zone, little situations like that where we’re going to look to improve. If we do that, hopefully it leads to better offensive performances and wins.” https://www.vikings.com/news/state-of-8-cousins-ready-for-stretch-run?sf202352095=1

    and why is Staubach even nominated for the award? what has he done to equal Page's post football accomplishments?

    Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end and Minnesota Supreme Court justice Alan Page has never hidden his feelings about the current political climate. But he’s not going to let his personal feelings for President Donald Trump stand in the way of receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom Friday at the White House. The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the nation’s highest honor for a civilian, and Page will be joined by former Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach at the ceremony. Page: “That’s going to be an experience that I’m going to have to go through. My vision of the world is the same today as it was a year ago, and the year before that. But this medal, this honor is far more important than my personal beliefs, my personal likes and dislikes. The politics of it, that’s something that at this point is not important to me. What’s important is trying to make this world a better place and literally that is my focus.” The honor is bittersweet for Page, coming shortly after the death of his late wife Diane. But he hopes he can raise awareness for his educational foundation, which has raised more than $14 million for scholarships since its founding in 1988. Page: “Trying to insure that every child has the opportunity to learn. The work that both of us have done with respect to racial, gender and social justice, trying to insure that everybody gets treated equally and fairly and to shine a light on those who helped us get here, helped us do the things that we’ve done. We all stand on the shoulders of somebody in accomplishing whatever we do.” And he won’t let his personal feelings stand in the way of spreading that message, which makes it even more powerful. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/11/14/alan-page-to-put-politics-aside-to-attend-white-house-ceremony/
