  1. 2019 Draft Talk

    A healthy Mike Hughes can handle the PR / KR duties. Especially if Alexander beats him out for the nickel spot making him 4th on the depth chart or you could argue 5th behind Hill.
  2. 2019 Draft Talk

    That sounds a little too similar to last season. Reiff could bomb just as bad as Remmers inside. Then what happens if O'Neil struggles on the left? I mean they could try it but I would be worried until I see some success.
  3. Jaguars hire John DeFilippo as OC

    The guy just drove me crazy. The run game insisted of motioning Cook out of the backfield for a quick pass or quick passes behind the LOS to Diggs or Thielen.
  4. Jaleel has no burst off the line. Even coming out of college he was known more for his hands and power but the power part doesn't always translate. DT version of Scott Crichton.
  5. Just not a fan of this move. The last thing the team needed was an inexperienced coordinator running the offense. That is how we ended up in this situation. Zimmer just signed his ticket out of town.
  6. 2018-2019 Offseason Thread (Season Concludes)

    I agree. I thought our front 4 played better when Griffen was out. Griffen gave up the edge all year against running backs and that use to be his strength. No one could beat him outside. It would just be bad timing though due to his mental health issues. I can't see that not carrying some negative PR backlash. Still I would rather cut him than dump Rudolph.

    I would be fine with Jackson but I wanted Bevell over DeFilippo so what do I know. Moving forward with the times, looking for the next great thing is how you end up with DeFilippo. Shurmur wasn't running anything fancy or flashy for us but it worked. When you look around the league how many Sean McVay's do you see? Matt Nagy has had success his one season thanks mainly to a coach he didn't hire. Oh and he brought in Brad Childress to help him run the offense... that mastermind Nagy. We hated Bill Musgravre when he was here but he landed in Oakland and Carr looked like a stud in his offense. JDF replaced him and it went to crap. Now he is stuck again in Denver with a bad quarterback like he was here. It is almost like if you give all these bad coordinators good personnel they suddenly become good coaches. Go figure.
  8. The Gnat's Crazy Off Season

    I like the overall idea. I agree that DT is a much bigger problem that tends to get overlooked due to the OL issues. I was a big supporter of the Richardson signing but he was just bad against the run this season. Even when he was pass rushing he wasn't disciplined and often left big holes for the quarterback to escape through. I do think they have to sign a veteran OG. Even if they draft a guy in the 1st or 2nd round you have to be realistic and expect a rookie to struggle. You can get by with that at one guard spot but not both. In my opinion that is why Easton gets praise from certain fans even though I don't think he played much better than Compton did for us. Berger held his side down and was our best linemen unlike Remmers who often needed help.
  9. Week 16: VIKINGS (7-6-1) at Lions (5-9)

    That missed block by Compton might be one of the worst I've seen.
  10. Raising the Barr even higher!

    I would have picked Richardson over Barr early in the season but I have soured on Richardson if it means major money to keep him. I still like him as a pass rusher but man does he get rode out of his gap when it comes to run defense and that is a huge problem. While Barr has played better as the season has progressed.
  11. Week 15: Dolphins (7-6) at VIKINGS (6-6-1)

    Is this what running the football looks like?
  12. Vikings Fire DeFilippo, Stefanski Promoted to OC

    Very similar to Brad but with opposite play-calling. Even down to getting the credit for developing stud quarterbacks.
  13. Thoughts on DeFilippo so far?

    I am going crazy in my old age. Still my point on Bevell is the same. Anyone watching the Vikings then knew who called the plays and it wasn't Bevell.
  14. Thoughts on DeFilippo so far?

    Bevell wasn't blasted here. Most of us wanted Musgrave fired and Bevell promoted. Musgrave was the one everyone complained about but he never had a quarterback to work with. We dumped him, hired Turner, and watched our offensive ranking hit league bottom. Fans always want "better" when they are more likely to get worse.
  15. Thoughts on DeFilippo so far?

    I wish they would have hired Bevell. I just ain't a fan of hiring position coaches that have never called plays. That is how we ended up with Brad Childress and now Defilippo.
