  1. Vikings Mock Drafts

    I went with Diggs at #25 on this one. I'm not sure we would take him even without the whole Stefon situation because there are questions about his desire to tackle. I like the rest of the picks though, because it seemed to solidify the trenches pretty well. I don't know if this is realistic, but I wouldn't mind if it went this way for us. One mistake I made was missing the fact that Henry Ruggs III fell all the way down to the Eagles at pick #21. If I had seen that, I would have tried to trade above them to grab him. Round 1 Pick 22: Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn (A+) Round 1 Pick 25: Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama (A-) Round 2 Pick 26: Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor (A+) Round 3 Pick 25: Robert Hunt, OT, Louisiana (A+) Round 3 Pick 31 (DEN): Raekwon Davis, DT/DE, Alabama (A+) Round 6 Pick 26: Darrynton Evans, RB, App. St. (A+) Round 6 Pick 28: Josh Metellus, FS/SS, Michigan (A+) Round 7 Pick 35 (COMP): Carter Coughlin, OLB, Minnesota (A+) Round 7 Pick 39 (COMP): Nate Stanley, QB, Iowa (A+)
  2. 2020 Draft Talk

    No need to draft him then. We already have that.
  3. Have you ever flirted with being a fan of another team?

    Thanks, buddy. I just hope my dad gets to see one. He's not getting any younger. In fact, he's kind of slowing down, truth be told. It's good to hear about you guys though. There's no reason for a team like the Eagles to be winless. You had a lot of good teams over the years, so I'm glad you finally got there. Going since the '40s is a loooooonnnng wait. That's true loyalty.
  4. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    I have to agree with you on this. My understanding was that, at the time, the Vikings just wanted to find someone who could reasonably be expected to repeat the kind of performance we got out of Case Keenum in 2017. The coaching staff didn't have confidence in Case's ability to do that in the future, and I agree with that. They felt that the supporting cast was good enough that if we could get another shot or two with equal QB play, we could get over the top. It didn't happen, but I don't blame them for making the decision at the time because Kirk was the best option available.
  5. Time travel: Stopping your team

    For the VIkings it would have to be Darrin Nelson - We passed on Marcus Allen to take RB "Disco" Darrin Nelson, who was never anything but a jitterbug who danced around in the backfield.
  6. Cardinals trade DeAndre Hopkins + for David Johnson +

    Oh. Well, I guess that makes it ok then... SMH.
  7. Your franchise All-Time Team?

    Are you sure? Ditka was hired as head coach in 1982 and they went 3-6. (I think that may have been the strike-shortened season). Legend has it that he told the team "give me three years" and after that they went 8-8 in 1983, then 10-6 in 1984, and finally the hallowed 1985 season where they went 15-1. You know Bears history better than I do, but just looking at the records it looks like Ditka built that great team from a bad team to possibly the best ever. Like I said though, you know the Bears better than I do and you are certainly entitled to your opinion. I just love the whole Chicago/Ditka aura that came with the '85 season.
  8. He made a lot of plays, limited mistakes, and helped us win some games. It's hard to explain, but I would just like to see him "take charge" more and attack more, as opposed to being on the defensive and counter-punching. Put the pedal to the metal and make things happen. This is something that may be counter to what the coaches are telling him to do though.
  9. Kirk Cousins - he played well last year but he needs to take the next step to being as good as his paycheck would indicate.
  10. Your franchise All-Time Team?

    No Ditka?!?!??! Come on!
  11. 1950s Comedy - Official FF BMET (Nominations)

    I can see what you're saying, but there just weren't many true comedies to pick from during the 50's. I'd rather make the stretch that an Audrey Hepburn movie was a comedy than nominate anything with Jerry Lewis in it anyday.
  12. 1980s Comedy - Official FF BMET (Poll)

    Me too. Either that or Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
  13. 1950s Comedy - Official FF BMET (Nominations)

    I don't think of comedies that make me laugh when I think of the fifties, but as long as some people are nominating romantic comedies I'll just go with: Gidget Roman Holiday Sabrina
  14. How about a (pinned) new open request thread

    @ET80 here you go!
  15. How about a (pinned) new open request thread

    My artistic talents were never that great to begin with, and as I've gotten older my eyesight isn't as good as it used to be so that has curtailed my sig making even more. I won't be able to do too many, but I'll give this one a try because I feel your pain when it comes to BoB.
