  1. aSK anything: 5.0: Designated Steve-vivor

    I like the movies disaacs mentioned. I’m also a fan of ‘Rudy’
  2. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    I feel he same way. It’s irritating! We have a very tough schedule this season. Kirk & Co. need to establish and build chemistry, this takes time. I have no doubt that we will be tight in the mix, but saying we need to win it all is a bit much.
  3. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    I agree. I’ve played over 25 years of softball. I’ve seen a few come backs to the face resulting in facial, orbital, and nose fractures. Seriously scary moments. I root against the Pack while they are playing football, I’m a Vikes fan after all. I wish no ill will toward Matthews or any other Packer player. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

    Think it was these guys
  5. All abouts the wideouts

    It’s not solely on him. The QB has to throw him the ball. There could be many reasons for his low target rate. QB’s confidence, QB’s ability to progress through his reads (Treadwell is likely not a 1 or 2 option on most plays), or Treadwell’s inability to consistently and reliably gain separation. So, Treadwell was targeted 35 times and hauled in 20 catches. How many of these targets were dropped or properly defended? I have no idea. Going back and reading a scouting report prior to he draft was interesting. This paragraph particularly caught my eye: “Treadwell consistently separates far less than most of the receivers in this class. Watching his tape shows a player that relies more on his physicality than getting open in the first place, which is fine for a receiver in college that is already a team’s go-to guy, but in the NFL may result in the ball simply not being thrown his way nearly as often.” https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/draft-monson-why-laquon-treadwell-is-not-a-top-wr-prospect Looks like what we’ve seen from Treadwell for the most part, unfortunately. So, maybe Treadwell’s inability to create consistent separation has caused him to slip down to a 3rd/4th best WR option on any given play. It may also directly correlate to decreased QB confidence. The scouting report also compares Treadwell to Kenny Britt and Dez Bryant. Both comparisons have had NFL success ; however, both have difficulty with creating separation. Both Britt and Bryant have carved out a niche in the NFL. Going into his 3rd year, can Treadwell carve out a niche in the NFL; e.g. red zone threat, possession WR? Will the signing of Kirk Cousins improve Treadwell’s odds? I’m not sure Treadwell will ever carve out his place as a viable NFL WR threat, but if it’s going to happen, this is the year it needs to happen.

    Hmm 🤔 that’s odd
  7. Vikings sign...UDFA

    Number 1 DL and CB UDFA’s
  8. Vikings select...Brian O’Neill, OT, Pittsburgh

    I’m thinking light as well. Maybe 305-310 with some added weight room muscle.
  9. I have been wondering the same thing. Valid question, imo. O’neil-Easton/Isadora-Elflein-Remmers/Gossett-Reiff 🤔
  10. Vikings select...Colby Gossett, G, Appalachian St.

    If it jack’s D’Flip up, it jack’s me up as a fan!
  11. Vikings sign...UDFA

  12. 2018 Minnesota Vikings Draft Class

    I’m in favor of low highs and high lows, emotionally. Personally, I cannot handout grades until I see our draft picks/ udfa’s perform. I don’t have a lot of insight/evaluation prior to fit/performance related to the Vikings’ scheme.
