  1. 2020 Draft Talk

    Hoping the Vikings don't double up early(top 2 RDs) on CB's. Like both 1sts on a CB's or a 1st and 2nd on CB. 3rd round is when I expect that 2nd CB to be selected, Hall from VA makes a lot of sense. Zim usually let rookies start everywhere but his baby CB. I can see Zim letting one get some early playing time but not both. Unless something crazy like Hill getting suspended again and Hughes/Boyd is hurt. However, maybe this is Zim plan all along once Gary signed on as OC. DB room was going to change drastically and he has the time to rebuild it. Vikings need to come out of this draft with an LT. Can't pay Reif 11mil in 21. Jackson's ability to play OG for a year gives him a slight edge over Josh Jones.

    I don't see the Vikings spending two 1st on WRs maybe only one. The offense is 2WR 2TE run-based scheme. I expect Irv Smith to fill the 2nd and Kyle to be 3rd. I was cooling on Higgins but I'm back on his bandwagon. He never going to turn heads at the combine. His production you can't ignore and against top CBs he gets the job done. Higgins not the fastest neither is Nuke or Thomas.

    Both lol. Maybe seeing no team showed real interest in him will take him off his high horse and he changes for the better.
  4. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    A read an idea that might make sense. Should the Vikings consider moving Udoh to LG and him being a big guard ala Osemele? Osemele played guard for Dennison and Udoh is almost identical in size. Draft an LT and cut Reff for cap space. I know Udoh is athletic and strong enough but think he's too tall.
  5. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I'm really hoping the Vikings don't go WR in the 1st (I do like Jefferson). I believe Vikings is trading one of their 1st to move back, gain more picks and save a little cap space. What are some thoughts on late 1st mid 2nd round prospects DT Ross Blacklock, OL Lloyd Cushenberry, or OL Ezra Cleveland?
  6. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    With Gary running the offense I expect him to have full control of it. Gary has let rookies start before.
  7. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I don't like both 1st going on the DLine especially with Andre track record of developing mid-round DEs. Give me Gallimore and OL/WR prospect. I wouldn't even mind a CB if Zimmer gives his word he won't redshirt them.
  8. Vikings trade WR Diggs to Bills

    Diggs and Thielen wanting the offense to open which it should but to a certain degree. I don't get this "Vikings offensive approach won't work ". 49ers just went to the SB with the same run-heavy offense. NE went to the SB previous year with the same approach. Before KC SB win this past year you can make a stronger case against a pass-happy vs conservative offense. I will miss Diggs his antics were annoying but always played full of passion.
  9. Vikings trade WR Diggs to Bills

    Thielen's antics happen more during the heat of games/post-game which can be rationalized by fans as his emotions just got the better of him during competition. Or he really wants to win. However, Diggs's social media antics are more constant and feel calculated. His mixed and subliminal messages are something as fans you can't tie any answers to beside him being a diva. Diggs, for the most part, got the same passed for his antics on the sideline that Theilen receive. Social media antics and fans feeling he didn't want to be here is why he got knocked more. On a side note, I said multiple times during the season I'm getting tired of Theilen antics also.
  10. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    I preferred the Vikings to let Kirk ride out his contract and drafted a new QB in the 20/21 draft. Having so much tied up into one player hasn't worked for any team. 49ers had a lot of high draft picks on rookie deals. They should just extend Zim and Rick to the same time and if don't work out full-scale rebuild.
  11. Vikings trade WR Diggs to Bills

    I hope they don't reach for a WR. Thielen, Kyle and Irv Smith who I expect to have a better year next season are a solid unit for a run-based team. Not saying we don't need a WR but every time we went solely for need it backfires.
  12. Vikings trade WR Diggs to Bills

    This is what scares me. Diggs while great can be replaced via building a stronger team overall on offense. For all the talk about what the Redskins gave the Rams for RG3. Rams did nothing with those picks.
  13. Vikings trade WR Diggs to Bills

    Just my opinion Diggs and Kirk issues are centered around Thielen. Thielen has always been the primary target for Kirk. Diggs impact and happiness were at it's highest during the Kirk era when Theilen was hurt and Diggs was Kirk go-to guy this season. Run based offense with limited catches + not the primary guy + signing a contract that very obsolete= Angry WR
  14. Vikings trade WR Diggs to Bills

    Hate to see Diggs go. Never want to give up a still young promising player for the unknown of draft prospects. However, the antics needed to stop. Saints playoff game while winning and he going off on the sideline is something you can't keep dealing with. The return was solid and if Rick hits on these picks the Vikings will be in a position to compete without Diggs.
  15. 2020 Sign, Draft or Promote - Starting 3-Tech DT

    Draft and wouldn't mind getting Daniels especially if cut Linval. This draft has a lot of potential pass-rushing DT and this team desperately need one. Please no mid/late-round pick. Stephen for the amount given was a bad resigning.
