712 Pro Bowl
  1. 5,000 or Bust '18

    My week 15 pick is Baker Mayfield.
  2. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    I don't get the Jackson love.
  3. Vikings fire OC John DeFilippo

    Do teams think like this if there is still a mathematical chance at the playoffs? The Vikes and Panthers each may very well lose their last three games. Plus Foles is coming back so they are just gearing up for another run.
  4. Vikings fire OC John DeFilippo

    He was the play caller. He chose to run the most unbalanced offense in football despite multiple attempts by Zimmer to reign him in to being more balanced.
  5. I don't think the OL is as bad as made out to be in terms of pass protection. We're probably average. Run blocking is a disaster. Any time this team needs to run for a yard, the only effective play seems to be the QB sneak.
  6. Vikings fire OC John DeFilippo

    That has to hurt a bit. His old team doesn't even want him down the stretch.
  7. 5,000 or Bust '18

    Will have to change my pick since Wentz might not play. More to come.
  8. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    I think this just stresses the urgency to find Cousins replacement and hope you can get comparable or better play on a rookie contract. I think you've got to build up the OL and find spots on defense to start bringing in young talent for the future in the 2019 draft, and go all in for a QB in the 2020 draft. Follow the Chiefs model in how they got Mahomes. Compete as a playoff team with an average QB with a line of sight to building the future which requires a major trade up into the top 10. The rookie would then sit for a year with no pressure while Cousins walks in 2021, netting us a third round comp pick.
  9. This Is Rival Talk v1.0

    I would expect that trend to continue. If his OC does well, they will quickly be in line for a promotion to HC elsewhere. If they do poorly, they will be deservedly fired. The lesson here is to hire offensive minded coaches as head coach because it is an offense focused league now.
  10. 5,000 or Bust '18

    Week 15: Carson Wentz
  11. This Is Rival Talk v1.0

    Zimmers problem is that whenever he gets a successful offense, that OC will leave for a HC gig. Hard to maintain that side of the ball. I'm sure most defensive minded coaches must deal with this.
  12. This Is Rival Talk v1.0

    He's had Norv Turner, Pat Shurmur and DeFilippo. Turners offense is so outdated, he resigned halfway through the year making way for Shurmur. Shurmur was great last year and got a HC gig.
  13. Vikings fire OC John DeFilippo

    Elliot would probably get no more than 10 carries per game.
  14. Week 15: Dolphins (7-6) at VIKINGS (6-6-1)

    First noon game in awhile too.
  15. Thoughts on DeFilippo so far?

    Hopefully he's the head coach of GreenBay next year.
