  1. Everson Griffen Incident

    Agreed on B-Rob. It's up to Weatherly/Bower to step it up with Hunter now taking over the full-time gig at RE. I suspect we also might see Jalyn Holmes play more DE until Everson is able to return. It'll also be interesting to see what roster moves they make next week after Brothers comes back from suspension.
  2. At the very least, he needs to let go.
  3. And pretty much one of the only reasons that they finished 8-8 was because of Sam Bradford and his ability to get the ball out so quickly, because the offensive line was an even bigger mess than it is currently.
  4. You'd rather they'd have rolled with Shaun Hill for the entire year? That was the price to pay...and I don't blame him in the least for doing it. If it hadn't been done, 95% of the Vikings fans would have called for his firing for not bothering to even try and make a move.
  5. Week 4: VIKINGS (1-1-1) at Rams (3-0)

    Sam Shields hasn't been a huge issue to the Vikings in 5 years. The Vikings had bigger problems with other Packers secondary players than Shields...most notably Morgan Burnett.
  6. Everson Griffen Incident

    I think maybe Keith Millard can still suit up...I think he's had his knees reconstructed...and I don't think the Hardees drive-thru he ran into exists any longer.
  7. Why? Bradford was okay with the Vikings. In fact, the Vikings probably got the most out of Bradford that any team he's played on has.
  8. Everson Griffen Incident

    Not the most bizarre in Vikings' team history though...not even close.
  9. Week 3: Bills (0-2) at VIKINGS (1-0-1)

    I can see the argument that it's similar and can agree partially, but it's clearly not nearly the same context, so to make the inference that it's going to hang over the team all year long isn't somewhere I'd personally go at this point.
  10. Week 3: Bills (0-2) at VIKINGS (1-0-1)

    It could also be something that galvanizes the team. While players seemed to like AP in the locker-room, he often was off elsewhere working out on his own, doing his own thing and often was separate from the team. Everson is a primary vocal leader in the locker-room and is one of the most well-liked too. It's not the same.
  11. Week 4: VIKINGS (1-1-1) at Rams (3-0)

    Well, apparently he is. Just as Easton was a bigger loss than people thought as well. Sometimes it's the guys you least pay attention to that mean the most.
  12. Valhalla Fantasy Football, Season 4 2018

    Good game and good luck the rest of the way...I'm glad we got back on track this week after not having a great week the game before.
  13. Knockin' on Valhalla's Door

    Seahawks are working out David Parry today... http://nfltraderumors.co/seahawks-working-out-dt-david-parry/ and Ifeadi Odenigbo, after getting released by Cleveland after 3 weeks...is on his way to 'zona.
  14. Week 4: VIKINGS (1-1-1) at Rams (3-0)

    I'm calling it now...the Vikings win on Thursday. It is Thor's Day after all. It's only appropriate. I know they've typically struggled on Thursdays, but that changes this week.
  15. Week 3: Bills (0-2) at VIKINGS (1-0-1)

    While I think the Vikings tend to have a fragile mentality in big spots, it's not necessarily something that is Zimmer's fault, nor something he can really fix on his own. It's been evident in this franchise for decades, and the players that have comprised the roster aren't the same. Possibly, it's our own fault as fans, as we expect them to take care of business all the time and don't give enough credit to the other team for being actually being a NFL team. And you certainly haven't watched enough games in those other sports to suggest that they don't play that pathetic or uninspired, because if they actually were inspired every night, the Warriors would be 82-0 (or 80-2 at least, because they'd split with the Rockets) because they have that much more talent than everyone else.
