  1. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    That shouldn't be a surprise at all. Timing wise, it makes sense to draft a QB in 2020 regardless of Cousins. I don't think he's worth his contract and especially another extension. Even if the Vikes make the playoffs, there just seems little long term benefit in keeping Cousins at $30m per year. I struggle calling Cousins a franchise QB. I don't know what he would have to do in 2019 for me to feel good about him beyond this year, maybe carry the team to a deep playoff run that doesn't involve a miraculous play by Diggs. Cousins definitely needs to show an ability to rise to the occasion, we've yet to see that in his career on a consistent basis.
  2. Physically, he may be in a better spot to fill in immediately than say a 21 year old rookie. That may be more relevant for the interior line where he has to face bigger and stronger players.
  3. NFC North: Who wins it this year?

    Well, obviously that remains to be seen. Can Cousins and the OL improve? The point is, trying to compare what last year's Vikings offense accomplished, even though Stefanski was retained, seems irrelevant. He needs a chance to implement his own system and not run the system of a failed and terrible OC.
  4. NFC North: Who wins it this year?

    The new OC didn't get a chance to even implement his own offense last year, plus they brought in Kubiak to help the run game.
  5. NFC North: Who wins it this year?

    Can't really bank on last year repeating though.
  6. NFC North: Who wins it this year?

    If the OL has enough talent to actually improve. That remains to be seen but I like what they have O'Neill and Bradbury was a good pick. Reiff is steady. Kline and Elflein shouldn't be starting but will likely have to.
  7. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    If they are anticipated to be $30 million over the cap, there will be gaping holes on the roster. I wouldn't count on free agency if it's going to take deep cuts to get to 0. Reiff is a prime candidate to be released and I'm not sure it matters if a players replacement is on the roster. If there is a $30 million solve. I'd anticipate O'Neill moving over to LT and addressing RT in the draft, or bring back Rashod Hill to play RT.
  8. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    Favre's playground style of football probably led to more careless turnovers too. I think Rodgers is probably more efficient at it than Favre, but Favre probably had more memorable moments and game winning type situations. Could be completely wrong here but Favre was known for being a turnover prone gun slinger. .

    It would be tough to potentially lose Rhodes and Waynes in the same offseason.
  10. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    Weatherly may get a new deal which will certainly offset most of Griffen's savings.
  11. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    Many thought MN overpaid for Griffen when he overtook Allen. I wonder if the same will be said in regards to Weatherly if he's starting in 2020.
  12. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    This would be a smart move. The depth behind these two players isn't particularly strong and if the Vikes can get a friendly deal, I'd pull the trigger. DE could be an issue if Weatherly isn't resigned and Griffen continues to decline. Im less concerned about Safety. Seems like Zimmer doesn't have an issue getting the most out of that spot, regardless of who is back there. I don't think he's really had bad Safety play. He turned Reggie Nelsons career around after busting in Jacksonville. Iloka was a long shot but had a solid career in Cincinnati. Sendejo and Harris were both undrafted and Zimmer got these two playing at a respectable level. I wouldn't break the bank for Harris. I could see one of Waynes or Alexander being more of a prority but that decision is difficult right now until we see more of Hill, Hughes and Boyd.
  13. Vikings extend TE Kyle Rudolph (Four years, $36M)

    I think it was just a salary play to gain cap space this year.
  14. Rudolph with a Very Shiny New Contract

    I'm willing to concede on Beebe. But he's a slot guy and who knows if his small frame will hold up in the NFL. the concern for me is who can fill in on the outside, especially if Diggs or Thielen miss time.
  15. Rudolph with a Very Shiny New Contract

    I get that but how does the depth chart look on these teams? Where would our backup WRs fit in? Given the reliance on undrafted players and a first round bust, I can't imagine they stack up real well. And no, I wouldn't expect an all pro caliber player. But I'd like someone who can fill in and be competent. Treadwell is the most experienced of the group but he's proven to be awful. While Zylstra has had success in another league, he's in his late 20s so I struggle with him being anything other than a somewhat cool story. Surely there is a better starting option out there that could have a decent role with the team as a third WR. It's not like anyone else deserves a roster spot behind Thielen and Diggs.
