  1. 2018 NFL Pick 'em

    Minnesota at L.A. Rams - 10
  2. 5,000 or Bust '18

    Week 1: Rodgers Week 2: Roethlisberger Week 3: Ryan Week 4: Brees
  3. Everson Griffen Incident

  4. Barr V Richardson?

    How is it a conversation? Because people are watching the games. Barr had a terrible year in 2016, his play improved slightly in 2017 but it was still nothing special, and through three games this year he looks like a repeat of 2016. Barr is a special athlete, but he’s far from a special linebacker. At best he’s got average read and react skills, he struggles to shed blocks, his coverage skills aren’t anything to write home about, and what’s worse, he plays very passively.
  5. Barr V Richardson?

    Barr has 0 sacks when he’s come from the outside. Almost all of his sacks are from using timing and his speed to get to the QB on a blitz before he needs to engage a blocker. Honestly, it’s pretty embarrassing that a guy with his size gets neutralized so easily by smaller running backs.
  6. Week 4: VIKINGS (1-1-1) at Rams (3-0)

    Compton has been very solid at LG. I certainly wouldn’t expect the team to move him. And I’d guess that Hill, if healthy, remains at RT. Unless, Reiff can’t go on Thursday.
  7. Week 3: Bills (0-2) at VIKINGS (1-0-1)

    While Everson Griffen is a very valuable piece to the defense, the defense is not centered around him, nor is the defense’s success solely based on the success of him. The same could not be said of Peterson and the Vikings’ offense. Norv Turner centered his offense around Peterson, everything, offensively, revolves around him. The offense was left scrambling when Peterson was arrested/suspended. But, and probably more importantly, the Peterson situation divided the locker room. He was arrested for beating his kid. There were players who supported him, but there were also players that didn’t want him back. There were front office personnel who didn’t want him back. And there was a large contingent of fans who didn’t want him back. When the topic of Peterson’s case was brought up, it was met with uneasiness. With Griffen, he’s sick. This really isn’t any different than had he gotten hurt on the field or contracted a physical illness. When Everson’s situation is brought up, it’s going to be met with universal love and support. From teammates, front office personnel, and fans alike. So, no, Griffen’s situation doesn’t come close to resembling the Peterson situation.

    I don’t see the situations being remotely similar.

  10. Everson Griffen Incident

    Football becomes secondary. Griffen needs to focus on himself.
  11. Week 4: VIKINGS (1-1-1) at Rams (3-0)

    I certainly won’t say that Morgan is that much of a difference maker, but it’s interesting none the less.
  12. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    Honestly, I don’t think that hurts the Packers too much.
  13. Week 4: VIKINGS (1-1-1) at Rams (3-0)

    I could be out there at corner for the Rams and it wouldn’t matter if DeFilippo doesn’t do something to scheme around Donald and Suh.
