563 Pro Bowl
  1. Top 10 Defensive Linemen

    I agree. This list almost has to be split into DE's and DT's. Too many good ones.
  2. Top 10 Linebackers

    Kailee Wong should be on the list. Just for the name.
  3. Top 10 Viking Offensive Linemen

    Randall McDaniel is, for my money, one of the 15-20 best football players of all time, regardless of position. Maybe even top 10.
  4. Perhaps some of that optimism comes with the new scheme. Bradbury and O'Neill seem like natural fits for it. Also seems like it can mask some of Elflein's deficiencies.
  5. Top 10 Viking Running Backs

    If you’re going to do this for every position, I think it would be fun to have a poll at the end to determine which position is the best in the history of the Franchise. On another note, not looking forward to the list of the top 10 QBs...
  6. Unfortunately, the netting will negatively impact the enjoyment of being at a game, as I remember the excitement of catching foul balls down the baseline (will also change outcomes, as fielders won't be able to get some balls they would without netting). However, the way guys are hitting balls these days, it is a necessary evil. I honestly was scared for some of those kids at the Derby last night. No way should they be letting anyone under the age of 17 out there to shag those balls. One laser from Vlad or Alonso could have caused serious damage. Not to mention the kids falling all over each other.
  7. Vlad Guerrero Jr. is a freak of nature. That derby was a lot of fun to watch.
  8. Twins lead has dwindled to 5.5 games. Need to get hot and get a couple of reliable arms.
  9. NFL Snooze News: Volume Four, Por Favor

    That's just horrible.
  10. Adrian Peterson

    Playing with guys named Rivers and Brees might have helped with that. Peterson played one season of his entire career with a competent quarterback. There were eight men in the box every time he lined up, and he still dominated.
  11. Adrian Peterson

    Peterson is a first ballot hall-of-famer. It’s not a stretch to say that there was a stretch of maybe 7-8 years where he was the best player in the league not named Brady or Manning. He imposed his will on other teams in a way that no other running back of his era did. There’s a case to be made that he was the most physically gifted player to play the position. There really wasn’t anything quite like watching him break loose on a long run The off-field stuff won’t deter enough voters, in my opinion.
  12. Does anyone else feel slightly anxious about the 8.0 game lead over Cleveland? Maybe it’s just my MN Sports fan conditioning.
  13. MadBaum would be a nice addition, but it doesn’t feel like his current incarnation is a huge addition. He’s not the ace he once was (which is why he’s available). Maybe it’s a 2-fer where you improve your rotation a little bit and also the bullpen by sending an arm there for long relief. Still, it’s a little underwhelming to me.
  14. Gonna have to agree to disagree on this one.
  15. 2020 Draft Talk

    Cousins can’t be franchises under his deal, can he?
