  1. Rosen vs Murray

    I'm not quite sure what point your .gif is trying to make. Based on your other posts, it sounds like you are a lot higher on Murray than Rosen. I'm not going to argue with you on that because I don't know enough about either one of them to have any kind of informed opinion. I'm just cheering for Rosen's success because I liked the way he handled himself in the video I posted. I don't have anything against Murray either. Hopefully, both of these young guys will have a lot of success in their careers.
  2. 2019 Trade Deadline/Rumors

    I wonder if the Twins are actually going to do anything this year or if the Pohlad's are going to sit on their wallets like they usually do this (and every other) time of the year.
  3. Rosen vs Murray

    I think I'd wait and see how Vern Troyer does behind that vaunted Arizona offensive line before posting too many videos like this...but that's none of my business.
  4. Rosen vs Murray

    Maybe not ALL, but I think you have to give Rosen a pass for a season in this situation. We're talking about QB who is playing in his first year with a new team in only his second year in the league. The supporting cast sure doesn't look like it's going to do him too many favors. It would be difficult for me to be too hard on any QB in this situation.
  5. Rosen vs Murray

    I have nothing against Kyler Murray. I'm not sure what to think about his size and playing style translating to the NFL. It will be interesting to see what AZ's new head coach will do with him. At the same time, the way Josh Rosen handled the whole situation made me want to cheer for him. This was truly a classy video:
  6. Top 10 Defensive Linemen

    These lists are tough because everybody has their own way of defining what makes one player "better" than another player. Some people put a lot of weight on the length of career or total career production, and I can understand that. For me, however, I just look it and ask myself "if the Vikings needed someone at their position today, and could go back in a time machine to get either player at their peak, who would I bring back? I don't really take things like the "guns" situation or injuries. To me, Keith Millard was the most dynamic Viking defensive lineman I've ever seen, with the exception of Alan Page. On another note, it's nice to see Jerry Ball getting some love in this thread too. He was one of my favorites back in the day too.
  7. What Should The Cowboys Do?

    I'm a Vikings fan, not a Cowboys fan, so my opinion on the team in Dallas is fairly uninformed. One thing I would do is move on from Dak. He is a good quarterback, but I haven't seen enough from him to believe he can ever lead them to a Super Bowl win. One idea on the running back situation would be to trade Zeke and maybe try to find a way to pick up Melvin Gordon for less. He could do some damage behind that Dallas offensive line. Would the Cowboys be able to get him for substantially less than they receive in trading Zeke to someone else? Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Gordon is a really good character guy. Between what they could get for trading Dak and Zeke, they could put themselves in position to get one of the promising young QBs in 2020's draft.
  8. T.O. is a huge knucklehead, but the way he played in that Super Bowl was majestic. I wouldn't have minded seeing him win that one either, come to think of it.
  9. Former players: Pat Tillman - If ever there was a man deserving of the glory of a championship, it's Pat Tillman Joe Thomas - Great player and a great man. Total class act. I will never forget what he did for Crakburn and his wife. (Honorable Mention) - Earl Campbell - One of my favorite players of all time. It would have been great to see he and Bum Phillips holding up a Lombardi Trophy. Current players: Teddy Bridgewater - One of the nicest guys in the league. It would be great to see him overcome the knee injury and win it all. Josh Rosen - I loved the class he showed in handling what happened in Arizona. I hope he proves the doubters wrong and goes on to greatness.
  10. Are we really as bad as people think?

    I loved that play he made down at the goal line in a game when the clock was running out. He signals for all the players to get up to the line so he could spike the ball. Everybody in the stadium thought that was what he was going to do. Instead of doing that though, he fakes the spike and jumps over the line and reaches the ball over the goal line for the TD. That's the play that I remember most about Stafford's career so far. I don't know who you were playing at the time, or even if you won the game, but I was really impressed by Stafford's cool under pressure demeanor on that play. I like the guy. Just put a good team around the guy and he could do big things.
  11. Top 10 Defensive Linemen

    I would have Keith Millard at #2 on the all-time list. I know Virginia Viking said that he took longevity into account in his rankings, but from a pure talent standpoint, he was quite a bit better than even John Randle. That wasn't a typo on my part either. He was quite a bit better than even John Randle.
  12. Who do you choose in 2019: Rodgers or Ryan?

    Did you see much of Rodgers' play last year? It would be a stretch to say he was even an average QB in a number of games last year. There was a time when he was considerably better than Matt Ryan, but that hasn't been the case for a few years now. I think it's just too easy to try and blame the coach for everything. Rodgers was missing a lot of easy throws that all NFL QB's should be able to make and you can't blame the coach for that.
  13. This is a bold prediction (many will say foolish), but I'm picking the Cowboys to win their division this year. Wentz is going to have to prove he can stay healthy for a whole season before I go all in on the Eagles. They do have a great roster, however, and I wouldn't be surprised if they had an equally great year. May the best team win, I guess.
