  1. new and improved INTRO thread

    I just completed my Level 1 operator course (a requirement the Ontario gov put into place after the Walkerton ecoli outbreak in 2000). Man treatment is so much more complicated then distribution, I only work on distribution and have not seen a math formula since highschool so it definitely got complicated. *I thought I was quoting both you and hyberborean
  2. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    I can see it now and it makes me sick.. The Packers fall apart next season whether its Rodgers getting injured early or just plain falls off and Green Bay is able to secure the top pick and end up with Lawrence. Its just life as a Vikings fan.

    Holton Hill with just a friendly reminder that you can't count on him and anything you get out of him is just a bonus. We all want to move on from Rhodes and Hill is supposed to be one of the reasons why but we just cant count on him, we still need to move on from Rhodes regardless but we definitely need to bring in some serious talent to that room.

    I would look to trade Cook this offseason, his value is not going to be any higher. We simply can't afford him without crippling other positions and we already have the perfect back to replace him with for the offense Zimmer wants to run. If anyone offered a 1st I would accept without even looking at what pick it was.
  5. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I dont post here often but I hang around and read most of what everyone has to say. It was an ok season that was at least watchable for the most part with a big wild card win and a little bit of hope and belief in the end. Moving on to next season I don't think we should make any drastic changes to scheme or philosophy and keep all hiring in house. Go for a minor retooling and see what this coaching staff and Cousins can do one more time before a house cleaning if needed. In free agency I want focus on keeping the priority in house guys and not spend any money we're able to find under the couch cushions on outside guys. Most agree Harris is top priority so I wonder if any of the tags are an option, maybe we can get something for him if someone really wants him and we can't come up with the funds. I would like to find a way to keep Griffen and the kickers if the money works but after that we probably wont be able keep the other DBs unless we can really free up some money, Rhodes and Joseph will probably be cap casualties in an effort to keep the priority in house. Looking to the draft I want the focus to be mainly the trenches on both sides with a cornerback or two somewhere in the first 5 rds, if there was value in a QB outside the 1st I would consider it.
  6. Week 13: VIKINGS (8-3) at Seahawks (9-2)

    I dont know if it would work down there but up here in Canada we have to use DAZN to view games. You get a 30day free trial and then is only $20/month and you can cancel at end of the season. It has an app so you can watch on smart tvs, phones or add the app on a media player.
  7. The Knucklehead Thread

    Bye week is here. Really hoping the boys can stay out of trouble, mainly Hill, Kearse and Hughes.

    For my wedding present last year my wife gave me an autographed Duke by Randy Moss. It is one of my most favorite things to look at in its case on my fireplace, definitely not about the money for a lot of collectors.
  9. Vikings Sign Josh Kline

    The season cant get here fast enough
  10. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    People really need to stop with the broken record that Spielman has done nothing to try and improve the OL and needs to be fired, he is not going anywhere. He has used high picks, he has used mid round picks, he has signed free agents and has even made a few attempts at higher profile free agents. Kalil never panned out but he did start off well, is he a bust or did injuries just derail his career? Cause thats never happened. There is maybe 5 decent OLs in the league and a few average ones behind them, its a league wide problem for more then half the league.
  11. Raising the Barr even higher!

    So the Jets were getting a "pass rusher" in Barr, what are we getting with his return.
  12. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    Great start in my books. I say only focus on players that dont count against comp now and get the high picks for Barr, Richardson(when he signs somewhere) next year. Build through the draft now. OL, DT, OL 123.. I think there we will be some LBs released in the next couple days worth looking it. Sounds like friday is the dealine for whatever we do with Griffen.
  13. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    Busted or not I think that this plays as a reminder that Hill is slip up away from suspension and can't be fully counted on as a starter moving forward, anything you get out of him is a bonus. I dont see anyway you trade either of them, DB depth is so important and can change for the worse in a blink of an eye.

    Schedule does not seem that hard. Road games against KC and Bears will be tough games, Chargers and Seahawks will be difficult but winnable, the rest while competitive shouldnt be difficult to win. Home games are all winnable with Bears and Eagles both being most difficult, Atlanta doesnt scare me. 10-6 or 11-5 doesn't seem that hard to achieve and should challenge for the division while securing a wild card.
  15. 2019 Sign, Draft or Promote: Starting SLB

    You could add C.J. Mosley to the list of potential free agents, Baltimore hasn't exactly made it a habit of retains their top free agents. I don't know if him or Kendricks could handle the outside but he is a much more instinctual player then Barr and is probably seeking a similar contract to what Barr is seeking.
