  1. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Even if Harris is traded, I am not sure they can afford Williams and Reiff on that line, unless Reiff takes a big paycut. I think we can expect Williams to get about $15-$16 million at the least if his ask of $20m is true. Trading Harris and acquiring Williams likely adds $4m. Cutting Reiff or renegotiating makes it feasible.
  2. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    Like I’ve said, Spielman won’t be picking a new QB. If Cousins fails, he’s likely to be out of a job. If Cousins continues to lead the team to playoff wins, Spielman probably retires/resigns before Cousins does. As for Watson vs Cousins, there is a 7 year age gap, Watson is just 24. Based on how he’s played so far, you’d expect the ceiling to be higher long term. The Vikes have regularly had a super bowl caliber roster, at least the last 2-3 seasons. Have the Chiefs been vastly more talented over the years? No. The Chiefs have had some bad defenses over the years.

    Mike Hughes needs to be.
  4. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    How optimistic are you that those weaknesses will be improved, on top of the newly created weaknesses from this offseason? My pessimism is due to Spielman losing his drafting touch, where’s the next Hunter, Diggs, Kendricks, franchise building blocks that can play on cheap deals for 2-3 years. As for Mahomes, he was no slam dunk prospect. Same with Watson for that reason. They both fell out of the top 10 so they both had their issues. I don’t think you can say you don’t see anybody as good as those two in the next few years, that’s unfairly propping up Mahomes and Watson as prospects based on their success as pros. Point being, both the Texans and Chiefs were pretty good teams who took chances on unpolished but supremely talented QBs, and it’s paid dividends for KC. If Houston wasn’t run by a moron, they’d actually get somewhere with Watson. Chciago did more to mortgage their future with the Mack trade than taking Trubisky.
  5. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    The Chiefs didn’t have this mindset, had a late first round pick and made a bold move to get the best QB in the NFL right now. The Chiefs won a super bowl knowing they can do better than Alex Smith and didn’t let team success get in the way of improving the most important position. Sorry, I just cannot accept that we won’t be in a position to draft a QBOTF anytime soon. Winning a super bowl takes a bit of risk from leadership, unfortunately Zimmer and Spielman have become so risk averse they may ultimately hold this franchise back. Spielman saves his job if he can successfully take a chance on another QB who is cheaper and ultimately better than Cousins. Otherwise, hitching oneself to Cousins (or Smith) is a doomed strategy. Spielman has blown so many first round picks as of late that there is an alarming lack of talent on cheap deals.

    Will that address Cook running for under 4 yards per carry for half the year? Definelty need an OG.
  7. Colts sign CB X. Rhodes

    How many penalties did he have that resulted in a first down?
  8. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I’d imagine that Anthony Harris would be part of the deal. Why would they want Reiff?
  9. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I can’t inagine that the Vikes won’t add a couple rookies RB via the draft or FA, so Abdullah is no sure thing to make the roster. I just think it’s odd to do it now than just waiting until after the draft.
  10. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Abdullah? Thought he was a waste of a roster spot and easily replaceable kick returner.
  11. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Why? Seems like a waste of cap space.
  12. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    And justifiably so watching this team lose so much talent while not being able to afford to replace any of it. I’m sure there is also frustration given that the Vikes has to ship away the best offensive player on the team as an accommodation. I understand the frustration as a fan watching a QB that is likely tapped out who needs a lot of help around him to come close to playing up to the contract.
  13. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Interesting. I’d definitely want him back for some continuity at slot, maybe with the opportunity to start at boundary in base. I’d certainly give him what the Bengals offered with some additional incentives if he ends up playing 75% of the snaps or something. I think he’s earned the right to compete to start.
  14. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Yes, don’t do it!

    What did we accomplish with Teddy and Keenum? Teddy never won a playoff game, both Keenum and Kirk did.
