  1. He is another good one. Still, Fitzgerald has dealt with some pretty bad QB play during his time with the Cardinals. Compare the QB situation he has dealt with to the QB situation Jerry Rice worked with. If Larry had anything like that I imagine his numbers would be even more impressive.
  2. Fitzgerald has been hampered by his QB situation almost his entire career and it hasn't stopped him. The few Carson Palmer years aside, did he ever have a good QB throwing him the ball?
  3. https://www.pff.com/news/pro-nfl-offensive-line-rankings-all-32-teams-units-entering-2019 They have the Vikings ranked 25th. My knee-jerk reaction is that it seems a bit optimistic but I also didn't look at the lines of the teams they have ranked worse yet. Even if optimistic, it also seems like a fair ranking. They probably have more faith in the rookie than I have. I never expect much out of a rookie until they have actually played in the NFL. I would rather have someone else penciled in to start until the rookie shows he deserves the job.

    I sometimes choose to not remember Dorsett's run too.
  6. All Hail...to Epic Fail

    There is no doubt that Barry Sanders was a fun player to watch. It's a shame his entire career was wasted playing for the Lions. Although, I suppose the same could be said about all the years Adrian Peterson wasted playing for the Vikings under Brad Childress and Leslie Frazier.
  7. All Hail...to Epic Fail

    As far as non-playoff experiences, this one was pretty rough. It will be interesting to see what you have rated higher. The wrong way run? The Mike Vick OT run? Steve Young's run? The push off? The SB losses?
  8. What might the KSO look like?

    I wouldn't take anything said by freedomphilosophy too seriously. That is not to say that he is wrong, but on the surface there is a lot about what he says that makes me question his credibility. As Mr @swede700 said, he couldn't even spell the name correctly. Also, he talks about a bloated playbook. How can he know what Stefanski's playbook looks like? None of us know. Unless he has intimate knowledge he can't know either. If he had intimate knowledge, he would certainly know how to spell Stefanski's name. Similarly, there is nothing to support Stefanski being a yes-man. Sure, he could be right but it looks like a load of garbage to me. But that is based on a a reading of just one statement. I don't know the guy's baseline. Without in depth investigation, my initial take based on the one statement I see screams with alarms that I should consider the credibility of that information to be very weak.
  9. 2019 Cornerback Coffee Talk, no big whoop...

    Yep, there are different levels of performance-enhancing violations. There is the reasonable cause testing and also different levels of discipline depending on number of offenses. See this document for all the details: https://nflpaweb.blob.core.windows.net/media/Default/PDFs/2018 Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances.pdf

    Amen. If the team cuts Reiff they would have to have a plan for the position other than the draft. That said, they could find a cheaper player in free agency. The problem is, that player wouldn't likely be better than Reiff.

    They are two distinct policies. Getting advancing in the PED policy will not advance a player in the other.
  12. It sure is. Just making the jump to the NFL is tough enough. Some players can rise to the challenge while others just don't have what it takes. Stefon Diggs was a 5th round pick just a year earlier so has experienced most of the same changes in the NFL. He was able to deal with it. The jump to the NFL was too much for Treadwell given the rest of the circumstances. It is likely that the jump alone was too much for him. He showed way less as a rookie than you would want any first round pick to show; that was before all the rest of the changes happened.
  13. I would have traded him last year for a half eaten bag of stale Cheetos. Not sure if the Vikings could have gotten than for him last year, but I don't think his value has went up any since then. Still, it is possible that a team would be willing to take a flyer on him. The guaranteed salary might scare other teams off. The Vikings might have to agree to pay some of that to offload him. In reality, the likely move is the Vikings cut Treadwell and hope that another team signs him for the vet minimum so that much of Treadwell's guaranteed salary can be taken off the Vikings books. I can't say I am sure what the offset language is in Treadwell's contract but rookie contracts usually contain offset language that allows team's to reduce guaranteed payments by the amount a player makes with another team.
  14. Rudolph with a Very Shiny New Contract

    Don't see that working. Treadwell's blocking isn't good enough; he would get destroyed by DEs.
  15. Rudolph with a Very Shiny New Contract

    Kyle's been okay. I do agree that Waynes is a lot better at CB than Rudolph is at TE, but I don't know that the team was making a choice between the two of them. I believe the decision with Waynes will be more of a decisions of Waynes versus the other defensive backs. There is only so much the team can spend on defensive backs while sticking to their plan.
