613 Pro Bowl
  1. Who Wins the NFC North?

    MN has no run game, it's a huge concern and needs to be addressed going forward. If Murray keeps getting more involved, I think it could get better like last week.
  2. Week 7: VIKINGS (3-2-1) at Jets (3-3)

    I hope the Vikes can get Boone more involved. He's got a small sample size but he could be a good compliment to Murray. Runs with nice burst. It's looking like it's becoming more difficult to rely on Cook, he just can't get healthy.
  3. Week 7: Other games

    Except when the rookie QB plays the Vikes. Rosen played better against the Vikes than he did against Denver. And that Buffalo game was ugly.
  4. Who Wins the NFC North?

    With that defense?
  5. All abouts the wideouts

    Might Thielen become the NFLs highest paid WR? He's certainly playing like the best this year.
  6. Still Too Early 2019 Draft Talk

    I'd assume in this scenario that Richardson isn't coming back. I don't think the Vikes must grab an OG in round one. Might be as big of needs at DE, DT and OLB depending on upon how free agency goes.

    Wilsons game is so much different though. He's running a lot more with the football than Cousins as a rushing threat or to buy more time in the pocket. I don't think you can compare the two situations but I get your point. I think Wilson gets a pass because of how he plays.
  8. Raising the Barr even higher!

    Seems like he's been more involved, noticed him attacking the LOS more than the first few games. I don't know if the stats validate that but hopefully Zimmer has taken notice and not leaving Barr on slot WRs.

    The costly fumbles don't help either. Yeah yeah, OL isn't great but he's proven to be one of the most careless QBs in the pocket in terms of ball handling and this problem has dated back for years. The OL will likely never be great in MN given the resources tied into QB, WR and on defense. I don't remember the Redskins fans complaining about the OL much but Cousins constantly put the ball on the ground. Just curious to why we don't blame Ints on the OL when Cousins is rushed into a bad throw, yet it seems that the OL is regularly blamed as the scape goat for Cousins fumbling. Seems like a double standard. Both situations demonstrate carelessness in the pocket.

    There are worse OLs than MN. I'd say they are more below average thsn trash. They've done enough to allow for Cousins to be as productive as he has been. What is killing the Vikings is no run game and a defense that has given up way too many big plays. If MN can get these two things sorted out, they have a team that could make a deep playoff push. The Bears defense looks legit but the QB situation has to be concerning. I could see the Bears being somewhat similar to last year's Vikings, great in the regular season but will struggle in the playoffs due to the QB situation. The Packers will only go as far as Rodgers, they don't have a playoff caliber defense. I'm not sure Rodgers is good enough this year to carry that team on his own. The Lions just aren't there yet. My money is on the Vikings, due to the talent on both sides of the ball and having a legit top 10 QB this year. Just need to see that defense come together.
  12. 5,000 or Bust '18

    Week 7: Jared Goff
  13. Anyone concerned with Elflein? Obviously the issues at Guard aren't helping him out and he missed a lot of time in camp, but is he making strides from his decent rookie year?
  14. Week 7: VIKINGS (3-2-1) at Jets (3-3)

    I'd hope to see the defense dominate Darnold, but even Rosen hit on a couple of big plays. The secondary must get better. Im very interested in seeing what happens at Starting Safety, nickel Safety (big slot) and regular slot with Hughes out. Harris looked good out there. Kearse and Iloka can also play meaningful snaps. Im ready to move on from Sendejo as a starter.
  15. Maybe if Teddy had more time with a team, he'd be an upgrade. However, acquiring him midseason to learn a new offense knowing he hasn't taken meaningful snaps in over two years, hard to see how that would help a team now. It's not like he was great his first two years anyway.
