  1. Vikings by the Numbers

    Can I give bonus points to Marinaro as my aunt went out with him a couple of times while he was a Viking? She didn't know who he was. And Obafemi was one of the numerous Vikings that went to Baltimore after Billick became their HC and now is the head of some mobile health tech company out of Baltimore.

    I'll just say Najee Mustafaa just because I liked saying his name. Most may remember him as Reggie Rutland, however. He had 2 97yd int returns for TDs in his career, one of which was with the Vikings and held that team record until Xavier broke it a few years ago.

    But his playing style would totally be banned in today's NFL...although he might have had the strongest hands I've ever seen, especially compared to Adrian's handshake. He could pull down players easily with just one hand.

    Only if you could get it not to fog up the shield.
  5. The Iron Chef!!

    That's pretty fair. I'd put the first 3 in 1 tier and then the next 3 in the next tier, then the 4 below in a separate tier.

    While I agree with you that they should have planned better, unfortunately, our society hasn't rewarded employers for preparing for such events, except in the case of my industry (insurance), where it's actually required to prepare for claims events...but, even in this case, they aren't necessarily required to plan for this type of event...although they likely will have to in the future.

    How many employers have made their employees make concessions during this pandemic? The NFL isn't alone. Thankfully, my employer has not, but I know many people that have been forced to take paycuts. Should they have planned better too?

    And make sure to wear a mask when you go in there.
  9. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    Yeah, that was the only thing I took a slight issue to...yes, the Vikings' OL has been significantly worse in the 2 years he's been here, but saying the Vikings only had 1 great WR is stretching it a little bit.

    And before people scoff...

    The only thing I disagree with you on is the fact that I think that football will still go on in some form. I understand that the potentiality of an outbreak is likely higher in a football environment, but I also think that they'll figure out how to mitigate the risk to the best that they can until the vaccine arrives sometime next year. There's far too much money at stake now and in the near future (as any loss of revenue this year impacts players' salaries down the road) to just cancel it altogether. Whatever needs to be done to make it happen will be done.

    That's likely because the NBA owners have really rolled over and given the players most of everything they want (and I don't think it's necessarily all been a positive for the sport). You're also talking about far less players. There's only 15 players per team on the roster, not 53. That alone is going to certainly cause some friction due to the number of players that they have to represent.

    The reality in this situation as well is that there are far too many people who are boneheaded enough to not even bother taking a necessary precaution, as if it's somehow a impediment on their rights. <steps off soapbox>

    I disagree. They generally work it out...no one has a worse relationship with their union than baseball...and last I checked, there hasn't been a work stoppage at all in the NFL in nearly 10 years...both the NBA and NHL have had them since then. They clearly have their sticking points at times with the same issues, but they work it out. They will work it out here as well.
