  1. What is Rosen worth and to who?

    Even though I haven't given up on Kirk Cousins, I'd still like to see the Vikings grab Rosen if he could be had for a third and maybe a fifth rounder. I'd actually be willing to give up our 2nd round pick.
  2. Geronimo Allison Resigns with the Packers

    He was nowhere near dreadful. He was a very good coach whose time had just run its course in Green Bay. That's something that happens to every coach eventually. As you said, Pugger, you don't win a Super Bowl by being mediocre. I became sold on him after hearing Rich Gannon talk in an interview about how big of a factor MM was in his eventually becoming a league MVP.
  3. 2019 Draft Talk

    Oh yeah. I forgot the picks behind us in the first round. For some reason, I was thinking we should be at #36 in round 2. I guess it's getting late and it's past this old guy's bed time.
  4. 2019 Draft Talk

    How come our second round pick isn't until #50?
  5. Green Bay expected to sign Za'Darius Smith

    I don't know anything about Z. Smith, but there seems to be a lot of overreaction in this thread about the price the Packers paid. This seems to happen every year. Salaries keep going up and everybody thinks that the newest signing is a huge overpayment by the team in question. Again, I'm not familiar with Smith as a player, but I can see why Packer fans are happy to see their GM signing anyone in free agency for a change. There are people in their front office who know more than any of us about his prospects, particularly in their system. If they overpaid by a couple million a year over what any other team may have paid him, it won't matter all that much if the guy goes on and becomes an effective piece to their defense. One thing is certain, he has to be an upgrade in what was a weak part of their defense last season. As a Vikings fan, I'm sad to see they finally have a GM who isn't just hiding behind locked doors in his office during this time of the year. Time will tell if this was a move that will pay off for them, but at least they are trying something. IMHO, their new GM has made some good moves since taking over.
  6. Titans have traded for Ryan Tannehill

    Who cares what he looks like? The question is whether or not he can play. Heck, I'd put Rosie O'Donnell out on the field if she could play and if I could find a helmet big enough to fit on that massively fat head of hers.
  7. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    I don't know much about Clayborn, but I agree with you on Everson. He is not the player he was 2 years ago. It sounds like he is staying around, though. Let's just hope they were able to restructure his contract to a fair price.
  8. Thoughts on Cousins

    I'd give up a third round pick and bring Rosen on board to light a fire under him this year. No reason to wait as long as the opportunity is available.
  9. Broncos to trade Case Keenum to Redskins

    Would that first round pick net just the receiver, or would his diva attitude and all the headaches associated with it also come with the deal?
  10. From Mark to Josh?

    Fifty years actually. They were just celebrating his 50 years in the business. He's a good guy.
  11. From Mark to Josh?

    I don't think there is any rookie in history who would have had a good season under those circumstances. Except maybe Tim Tebow.
  12. From Mark to Josh?

    I still haven't given up on Cousins. Last year ended badly, but we will have to see how he does with a better O-line and another year in the system. Mike Zimmer said in an interview recently that every single player he has ever traded for in his career has done better in year two than in year one. When it comes to Rosen, it seems WAY too early for the league to give up on him. He played on a horrible team. Give him some stability in an organization with a lot of talent around him and he could very well thrive. In fact, even though Case Keenum had a memorable season with us in 2017, I don't think there are too many people who think he could repeat that. He has hit his ceiling, IMO. Rosen's ceiling could be much higher than that of Case. Admittedly, his floor could also be lower, but it's hard to say at this point.
  13. From Mark to Josh?

    That's true, but we are in a unique situation where we have a starter locked up for two years but after that, who knows? To me, the potential upside is well worth the risk of trading for him and letting him sit and learn behind Cousins for a couple years. If things work out with Kirk, we haven't lost much. At worst, we have a good backup. At best, we have a guy who can come in and keep our window open if the Cousins experiment turns out to be a failure. Because of Cousins we don't have to worry about instant gratification with a guy like Rosen.
  14. From Mark to Josh?

    If we could get Rosen for our second round pick I would be on that deal like a bum on a bologna sandwich!
