  1. Why Dennis Green couldn't take us all the way

    You're giving them too much credit. Despite the record, they weren't in the same class. If Denny had done what he should have done, the Falcons would have never even been in the game, because they weren't playing like they belonged in it for 3/4 of the game. And then they were exposed for the frauds they were in the Super Bowl. FWIW, I'm not sure the Vikings would have won the Super Bowl either, considering how beat up and injured their defense was after that Falcons game, but I think they would have put up a better fight.

    I like purple as much as many of us here, but damn.... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2508834/Ordinary-looking-house-decorated-entirely-PURPLE-inside.html
  3. Why Dennis Green couldn't take us all the way

    Because the defense was atrocious due to his lack of attention to it (at least the ability to identify defensive talent). They had to play with a significant lead, because the defense couldn't hold in a tight game if their life depended on it. And he folded like a cheap suit when games were tight. He became ultra-conservative...I will still say, to this day, the reason the Vikings were not facing the Broncos in the Super Bowl after the '98 season was because of the kneel-down that he had Randall Cunningham take at the end of the first half and not the missed kick by Gary Anderson.

    If true, I imagine he's probably balking because it probably doesn't contain a lot of up-front money or guarantees, so he would inevitably be cut after 2 years or so.

  6. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    That may be the case, but at this point in time, if they were to cut him, he likely wouldn't be able to recoup it on the market, since everyone has likely already addressed their needs at TE.

    Oh, I know...it's just ridiculous and how he's waffled all of a sudden.
  8. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    Didn't he basically just say about a month and a half ago that he was willing to take a paycut?
  9. That record will never be broken solely because of how the game is played now. Charles Woodson played 18 years and even he could only get to 65.

    Apparently, Brian Robison had his retirement press conference today... https://www.vikings.com/video/brian-robison-retirement-press-conference-vikings-nfl

    That was me...and yes, I was wrong...but I still think it's highly unusual to do so, despite the benefits. I understand that the player gets some cash now, but I also believe there has to be some other benefit other than just cash up-front...but I don't personally know what that would be.

    That's why Kendricks is my guy!
  13. QB EJ Manuel retires

    I'm not even sure this really even deserved a thread, he's been irrelevant in the NFL since he was in Buffalo.
