  1. Everson Griffin Voids Final 3 Years of Deal

    I forget where but someone posted something like "This is huge! How are we going to spend the money we saved by him doing this?" Don't think that person understood that this doesn't give us money to spend but rather gets us slightly out of the red. It's a start!
  2. Why Rebuild Now

    It's exactly this. Rebuild is trading off everything above 28 you can get a penny for and having 1-3 years of 3-13....4-12 and rebuilding around the draft. The current Vikings just need a few holes patched and even at their worst, they struggle to be .500 or worse.
  3. Drew Brees will return for 2020 season

    Lot of teams need a starting quarterback running back receiver kick returner weird guy.

    I am speculating than Fran Tarkenton will come out of his extended retirement and lead the 2021 Vikings at Quarterback. That has just as much weight as "OMG STEFON DIGGS IS GOING TO BE TWADED!!!!!1111asdasd!"
  5. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I'd be willing to bet he'd at least be very open-minded to restructure. Vikings have been next to him in the good times and bad and helped him through his dark times a couple years ago. It's hard for me to see him go anywhere else. But, business is business.

    Diggs is an odd dude but he's not on the level of some other WR's where he's a true cancer or budding cancer to the locker room. Everything we've heard is that he's respected and is a team leader in the locker room So do I trade him for being odd and his tweets? No. Do I trade him if a team comes forward and says "Here's a first rounder and maybe a little change." Quite possibly. Do I trade him if his attitude goes completely in the tank and his antics get old? If the offer is right and my hand is forced....probably. I just don't think we have the WR corps without Diggs. Thielen is coming off an injury plagued age 29 season. Bisi Johnson was OK but nothing made me say "We may have something here....." Beebe and Treadwell ain't it. So Diggs would absolutely have to be replaced some how because you can't go into 2020 with Adam Thielen and Bisi Johnson as WR's 1 & 2. Thielen would be absolutely smothered every game and then you'd have to rely on Bisi and Beebe to do something. Then if Thielen goes down with a boo-boo.....no thanks.
  7. More flex scheduling could be on the way

    Right. A Sunday game flexed out of SNF is still a Sunday game so odds are travel plans won't be messed up (unless someone planned to travel in Sunday day then go right to the game.) A flexed MNF game moves to 1pm Sunday which screws up a lot of things with hotels/flights/driving. Plus even non-traveling home fans get screwed because a lot of fans take half or all of Monday off to get out to the game and/or take Tuesday off because the game doesn't get over until 10:30pm.

    No it was NOTHING at you lol I just see it all over Twitter and Facebook saying "Trade Kirk!" or "Cut Kirk!"
  9. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Spot on. I'm not saying it's NOT possible (and I personally wouldn't mind it one bit) but so many things would have to come together for it to happen. First, it'd have to be a team Kirk wants to go to (I don't think Kirk is a big market/big media like LA type of guy....). Second, said team(s) would have to give the Vikings what they want in return. Then said team needs to give Kirk what he wants. I just don't see many teams (if any) willing to trade for then pay Kirk big money again to be their starter when he's already failed as the "just missing a QB" role he had with Minnesota. But like you said....it's going to be nuts this off-season with 6 or so teams needing a QB and so many decent starters out there to be had.
  10. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Sure I mean that'd be the only way to do it but let's be honest here....how many teams are going to give up good draft capital then give up huge salary for a QB that could only muster one playoff win with Minnesota where he was supposed to be the QB to put the Vikes over the top? Although the article is right by saying Kirk to Chargers is probably the absolutely best fit still extremely unlikely. But like I said....I know the article is just off-season fluff/fun but it's annoying when people think it all can be solved via trade/cut like it's Madden on Xbox.
  11. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Why do most people fail to realize that we cannot trade Kirk unless Kirk agrees to it? Unless a trade partner says "Here Kirk, have this boat full of money over 4 years with the trade!" why would he agree to be traded for just one season when he can make $31 million here without having to move his family then have to potentially move them again after free agency? I get so sick of the "Just trade him!" half-a**ed ideas some people come up with. Kirk cannot be traded. Kirk cannot be cut without huge cap issues. JFC! I know it's non-sense hypothetical fun but there's far too many people who think we can just trade/cut Kirk whenever we want. Frustrating.
  12. Vikings Add Dom Capers to 2020 Coaching Staff

    So Capers is to the DCs as Kubiak was to Stefanski? OK.....
  13. 2020 Draft Talk

    I thought Taylor Mays was going to be a wicked, hard hitting safety. Oooof.
