  1. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Another one from Facebook.
  2. Kyler Murray vs Lamar Jackson

    The Carr vs. Bridgewater thread had gone cold, but it looks like it might heat up again with Drew Brees missing the next 6 games.
  3. Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger done for season

    I doubt it. Mike McCarthy is too old to play quarterback in the NFL.
  4. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    If they call that knucklehead I will just quit supporting the team. He's not that great anyway, not even as good as Cousins.
  5. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    Depends on their situation. I just think the guy could have been a winner in this league. You are welcome to disagree.
  6. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    And why was he out of football? All he did was take over a 1-4 team and lead them to the playoffs AND win a playoff game. All this in his FIRST YEAR as a starter. Was his passing ugly? Absolutely. Did he have what it takes to find ways to win in spite of it? You cannot deny that because the record is there.
  7. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    I would be all for that.
  8. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    Two reasons for this loss today: 1a. Subpar quarterback play. I have decided that Cousins is what he is. He isn't going to change. If you buy a Chevrolet, it doesn't matter if you pay a Rolls-Royce price for it. At the end of the day, you still only have a mediocre Chevrolet. 1b. FAR too many stupid penalties. Undisciplined play that falls on the shoulders of many of the players and also on the coaching staff for once again not having them ready to play. At this point, nobody is going to convince me the wouldn't have been better off with Teddy Bridgewater at less than half of the price. People, if you want to know why I will also always be so high on Tim Tebow, just watch our quarterback today. Compared to him, Tebow is night and day better. It may be ugly with him, but HE FINDS WAYS TO WIN, particularly in big games. One of the qualities Tebow has in spades is what Kirk Cousins is so sorely lacking. That's just the best way I can think of to describe it. We are stuck with him for the next two years, but if I'm Zygi Wilf, I'm going to start planning how to prepare for giving up whatever price it takes for Trevor Lawrence in the 2021 draft. I would go full Ditka and give up our entire draft plus our first round picks in 2022 and 2023.
  9. Matt Stafford Vs Cam Newton Who Is the better QB overall?

    I saw this on Facebook. Did he actually show up at a press conference looking like this?
  10. Week 2: VIKINGS (1-0) at Packers (1-0)

    Good old John Randle. Hahaha!
  11. What we should do if Mitch is not the guy

    That might not be a bad idea. The Bears could win a Super Bowl with a QB of Alex Smith's caliber. At the same time, I wouldn't give up on Mitch yet either. It was only Week 1, and every QB in the league is rusty in Week 1. One thing I would do is try to get the best QB coach you can find. It might be the coaching more than the QB. It might sound crazy, but it might be worth bringing Mike McCarthy in next season in some capacity to work with Mitch. I heard a radio interview of Rich Gannon one time and he gave a HUGE amount of credit to McCarthy in his becoming the QB he was. He all but said that when he was in Minnesota, he didn't learn much and that it was McCarthy who taught him what it took to be a great NFL QB - everything from how to study film, prepare for games, read defenses, etc. This would explain why the Vikings never had any really good QBs during Denny's tenure. Sure, there was Culpepper, but he also had the services of Randy Moss, which certainly didn't hurt. If not Mike McCarthy, find someone like him who actually knows how to work with young QB's.
  12. Patriots (19-0) or Dolphins (0-19)?

    I don't think Belichick really cares about going 16-0. He's all about winning Lombardis. Back in 2007, they had the motivation to "show 'em" after the Spygate thing, which was pretty much a big nothing-burger. Having Randy Moss paired with Tom Brady didn't hurt either. As for the Dolphins going 0-16, I could absolutely see that happening after that Week 1 performance. The 2008 Lions weren't near that brutal. They just had some bad luck in close games that they very well could have won. This Dolphin team looks fully capable of not seeing a W this season.
  13. Patriots (19-0) or Dolphins (0-19)?

    Good point. The question is, will the Buccaneers and Lions have champagne bottles available to pop the cork for their first win?
  14. Deion and Moss would have been fun to watch. It could have happened, because we played Dallas once in Moss' prime. Deion allegedly had turf toe that week and declined to play. I think Rice would have had his way with Revis.
  15. Are Rivera or Newton in trouble if Panthers miss the playoffs?

    Super Bowls wins are huge. In "best all-time" quarterback lists, Fran Tarkenton hardly ever gets mentioned, in spite of the fact that he's a Hall of Famer who led the Vikings to 3 Super Bowls and pretty much owned the record book for passing when he retired.
