  1. The new look Brady and the Bucs are on the clock
  2. Knockin' on Valhalla's Door

    I would much prefer that, although it still, for me, would be much better to do it Saturday and Sunday like it used to be.
  3. Vikings FFMD20 War Room

    I didn't see any long johns either...

  5. The Iron Chef!!

    It does...it accounts for both positions. And in response to @vikingsrule, while I agree with you that they should just let him play out the contract, I'm not going to po'ed if they do extend him...unless it's for Gurley/Zeke money...because he certainly doesn't deserve that high of a contract on the basis of his performance/health.
  6. The Iron Chef!!

    You can when, in 4 years potentially a top-5 contract for a RB now may be outside of the top 10. While the salaries for top RBs haven't elevated as quickly as other positions, it's still going up on average. We talk about how teams like the 49ers don't pay any big name RBs...that's a mistaken theory...they spend more money on that position than any other team in the entire NFL, while the Vikings are #24 (and only 2 other teams below them actually made the playoffs last year). The Vikings actually have been one of the most balanced teams in the NFL in positional spending.

  8. Knockin' on Valhalla's Door

    I used to be a religious watcher, but especially with all the changes they've made to it, along with other obligations, I can't watch it as much as I used to. I hate the fact that they split it into 3 days. I liked the 2 days, because I could only waste a couple of weekend days and then it'd be over. Now, I'd have to waste weeknights. I can't do that.
  9. The Iron Chef!!

    The great majority of their defensive players did not get top tier money on their 2nd contracts. They got very good and competitive deals, but they weren't top tier. Often they were dwarfed a year or 2 later. Hell, Harry's not even a top-10 paid safety any longer and he was extended only 4 years ago. $9M per year would put him in the top 5...and as far as I'm concerned, that's awfully reasonable.
  10. The Iron Chef!!

    I do think he'll get extended (much to the chagrin of many people here), but I do think it'll be at a more reasonable cost than the likes of Elliott, Gurley and Johnson. Unlike the management of those franchises, I think Spielman and Co are a lot more sensible than that.
  11. 2020 Draft Talk

    I've never said it's not a need. I said it wasn't as important a need as others have seemed to indicate. I do think they can get by with using one of their 3rd rounders and then another late round pick on a WR. They don't have to take a WR in the first 2 rounds to be okay. This is a fairly deep draft at WR.
