    I’ll go Roethlisberger.
  4. Should Zimmer be on the hot seat? And is Spielman gone?

    I think Zimmer and all involved haven’t ignored the OL. As much as I’d like to see higher draft picks spent on the line, we d try to address the issue through free agency. We even took a shot at Kelechi Osemele. So to say Spielman and Zimmer are oblivious isnt quite right. They seemed to have whiffed on Remmers and realistically need to draft/FA two guards and look to a competition at C if better guards don’t improve Elf’s play. It’s been an incredibly frustrating season. Hiring JDF was a mistake. Glad Zimmer made the move. Not all is lost because we made some mistakes and our OL coach died, which people are saying ha a bigger impact on the team than people think. In short, I think Zimmer can lead us to the big game. But there’s a tremendous amount of things that can and do go wrong in a multivariate world.
  5. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Does anyone have any insight into why Cousins doesn’t seem to make checks at the line? I am re-watching the game, yikes, and in one of the first plays, a left off tackle run to Dalvin the Seahawks literally shift the DL to the right and we still just try to steamroll into the shift. Kind of weird.
  6. Vikings Fire DeFilippo, Stefanski Promoted to OC

    I’m willing to entertain others are at fault for the offense struggles. However, that quote from Wagner and the regression this year on offense with an upgraded quarterback seems to imply most of the problems were with JDF simply not being ready and not adjusting and just flat out not being a good OC. Gove Kirk a chance with a reasonable offense and we’ll see what we have. Unfortunately it seems as though JDF wasted a year of a high price all-in move.
  7. Week 14 Games

    As much as I dislike the Saints for bountygate this looks like a fun locker room. Winning helps I am sure. I can’t wait for Teddy B to get another chance. One thing I wonder if the Vikings miss is some of the character and fun that was a part of last year’s team. Zimmer is that stoic old school coach but maybe this team needs to have more fun.

    Week 14: Drew Brees
  9. The Zim-Zam Flim-Flam: All Things Zimmer

    Been thinking about Zimmer and the happenings of this season. Something that is worrying me is we seem very reactionary vs. having a construct of what this team is and is capable of. So we wander around plugging one hole in hopes that another doesn’t spring up. No cohesive identity and that lies at the feet of the head coach. I love me some Zimmer. The defense has been extremely fun to watch under his tenure. Now it’s time for him to show if he can influence both sides of the ball. Unfortunately, it may be too late to fix this season. Still hopeful, but time is running out.
  10. The 2018 Playoff Hunt is on!

    While I agree with the first part, we are far far away from the ineptitude exhibited by Marvin Lewis.
  11. Week 13: VIKINGS (6-4-1) at Patriots (8-3)

    One thing I’ve veen envious of is the offensive install that has happened around Lamar Jackson in Baltimore. Pretty amazing to watch and makes you wonder if JDF is trying to be too fancy or lacks experience or..... something. Perhaps the NFL will catch up to the Ravens when there’s enough tape. That was one thing I loved about Shurmur. Seemed to get the most out of what was given to him.
  12. Week 13: VIKINGS (6-4-1) at Patriots (8-3)

    Completely agree that the throw could have been better. When it hits him in the hands though he normally comes down with it. Not sure why this team isn’t performing given the talent level. A frustrating year. Outside of fixing the interior oline and improving game flow and playcalling I don know what the fix is.
  13. Week 13: VIKINGS (6-4-1) at Patriots (8-3)

    another game exhibiting the small margin for error for this team. Frustrating. Can’t miss the 48 yard field goal early and can’t have Thielen drop that bomb from Cousins. The lack of pass interference calls surely hurt us when we could’ve gone up by 7. Nonetheless, another extremely spotty performance from the playcalling and the interior offensive line was dreadful.
