  1. 2019 Draft Talk

    Murray. This generation’s Doug Flutie. Some will see him as a franchise guy. Some will see him as too small to ever be the guy. However, with his size and the size and athleticism of today’s NFL players, I’d say the deck is more stacked against Murray than Flutie. That said, I’d rather spend a first on Murray than a 7th on Easton Stick.
  2. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    I fully doubt Cousins’ ability to take this, or any, team deep into the playoffs. The only way this signing is successful, and he isn’t seen as an utter failure, is a Super Bowl appearance. But he’s not taking us there. It’s just not in him. I hope he proves me wrong, and y’all can screenshot me on this, but he won’t win more than 10 games in a season as a Viking. He certainly won’t take us past the Wild Card round. And with his contract, we won’t be able to put an All Pro team around him to mask his deficiencies.

    Well, when Blake Bortles is running the offense, it's bound to look generic.

    Well that would certainly be reason to fire him if he took the team to LA.... 😂

    FIFY. (And yes, I realize that the NCAA gives it the BS designation of Div-I FCS, but that's just a fancy way of saying Div-II). And Stick is no Carson Wentz.

    Gross. If this team spends a draft pick on NDSU, that will be the final straw for me. Cleveland 4-lyfe...

    But you assume we wouldn't have gotten a similar player in O'Neill's spot. Heck, we may have gotten Hughes. There were 5 CBs taken after Hughes. Perhaps he's still there (based on team preference). Perhaps we end up with Josh Jackson. It's unlikely, but based on how the roster looked last year before the draft, Hughes was a luxury pick. Based on our units this year, Hughes was still a luxury pick. That doesn't mean he won't be a good luxury pick, but I think there are few who could fault the Vikings "reaching" for their O-lineman of choice at #30.

    I've never liked the Eagles or any other Philly sports team. Their fans are some of the most classless in all of sports. From throwing batteries at JD Drew to cheering injuries and throwing full cans of beer at opposing fans, they've earned our ire. Add in the fact that the Eagles drafted a NDSU Bison quarterback, and I have all the reasons I need to despise them....

    Honestly, I'm not sure that they would have won the Super Bowl with Tyron Smith, Quentin Nelson, Travis Frederick, and two other studs on the line, because I don't think Cousins has it in him.

    I mean, I'm glad we won that Super Bowl with Mike Hughes. Next?
  11. 2018-2019 Offseason Thread (Season Concludes)

    I think we all know what we have in Siemian. If he's starting more than 3-4 games, your season is probably down the tubes. We don't know what we have in Sloter. But if he starts more than 3-4 games, he's probably no worse. Of course, if you're starting Kirk Cousins for 16 games, your season is probably down the tubes too.....couldn't resist.

    Frankly, I don't think it's a "reach" to trade up for a guy if you believe he is going to be a starter at a position of need, rather than waiting for "value" where you pick. I think that "value" kind of goes out the window once the draft is over. Let's say the Vikings would have traded up 5 spots to get Hernandez last year. Would that have been a "reach"? Yes. Would we be crying about that now? Not likely. Sure, a lot depends on what you have to give up to get the guy. But if you believe he fills a need, and will be a plug and play guy for 7-12 years. Do it.

    Wilson was a baseball guy too. Hard to say Murray doesn’t have devotion to football.
  15. O-Line / QB / Special Teams Coach Search

    If Stefanski gets the HC gig with the Browns, does that say anything negative for Zimmer going after D-Flop instead of looking inward?
