  1. Is the NFL rigged?

    FIFY
  2. Is the NFL rigged?

    I only hope to live long enough to know what that feels like. Maybe you could describe it and I could live vicariously through you.
  3. Week 6 Non Vikings Games

    (Apparently, neither did the officials.) Aaron Rodgers received an Oscar for best actor in a dramatic role.
  4. Week 6 Non Vikings Games

    Not so much "Conspiracy Theory" as "Groundhog Day". December 3, 2015
  5. What might the KSO look like?

    Every time they complete a pass to Rudolph and he runs a few more yards, I wonder why the broadcast suddenly goes from real time to slow motion....?????
  6. Something brewing with Diggs?

    This is BS. Rice had three TD's against the Cowboys in the 2009 playoff game. There has to be others.
  7. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Three of the last four games this season are at home against the three divisional rivals. (The away game is at Los Angeles) We won't be playing outdoors at Lambeau or Soldier Field in December for a playoff spot. Those games will be out of the way in September.
  8. What might the KSO look like?

    It seems like our receivers are doing more downfield blocking, similar to Peterson's early years. It almost looks like the offensive line blocking is turning the defensive line perpendicular to the line of scrimmage which creates huge amounts of open field real estate. The running game has been an absolute joy to watch. So far, the score has been lopsided early on in each game. It will be interesting to see the KSO in a close chess match game.
  9. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    This is a perfect description of me, one year ago. I looked at the the last three seasons with Washington (4000+ yards) and thought if we had a QB that could throw for that consistently, well that would be the last piece of the puzzle. I remember you being not so happy with the Vikings signing Kirk. And now I understand why. My frustration with the Vikings in the Zimmer era is they are always one piece away from having a complete team. One year it's the special teams, another it's the offensive line, the quarterback, the receivers, the linebackers, the defensive line, it's always something that lets us down.
  10. 2019 Sign, Draft or Promote: Starting RG

    Just curious, why is RG more valued than LG? Thanks in advance.
  11. 2018-2019 Offseason Thread (Season Concludes)

    True, you can't expect to improve on 425 yards, but if you look at his game totals, they kind of decline pretty consistently throughout the season. The last 5 games were definitely below average, right when they were pushing for the playoffs. He didn't deliver in crunch time.
  12. 2018-2019 Offseason Thread (Season Concludes)

    Actually, for his top 8 YPG this season, the team is 3-4-1 and with his bottom 8 YPG the record is 5-2. Sure, he laid an egg against Chicago last weekend and was horrible against New England. But against playoff teams - Chicago (first game), Philly, New Orleans, and LAR, is also where he's putting up above average stats. Chicago L 132 Detroit W 164 New England L 201 Seattle L 208 Miami W 215 Arizona W 233 New York Jets W 241 San Francisco W 244 Detroit W 253 Chicago L 262 Buffalo L 296 Philadelphia W 301 Green Bay W 342 New Orleans L 359 Los Angeles L 422 Green Bay T 425
  13. Our locker rooms have become safe spaces for blackboards. Someone needs to Carl Eller a laptop...
  14. The point some are trying to make on this thread is that the Vikings will never win a Super Bowl with Zimmer and Spielman. So if the ownership has expressed complete confidence in going forward with Zimmer and Spielman, aren't they ultimately "the problem"? I think it's a fair question. If it's fair game to put Zimmer and Spielman under scrutiny, why not the ones who are responsible for putting them in place. Will we ever win a Super Bowl with owners that thought Brad Childress was the best HC available in 2006, that gave us 3 years of Leslie Frazier, 1 lost year with Mike Tice, set up faux GM Fran Foley, never hold anyone accountable for flopping in big games, etc. I get that they got a new stadium, new practice facilities, are willing to pay bazillions on free agents. Nice owners. But maybe too nice? I agree with Dan Barreiro when he said this organization, from the owners, GM, coaches, QB, and players need to stop thinking they're smarter than everyone else. What more can they do? It isn't what they don't do that's questionable, it's what they do that's questionable IMHO. It just seems to me the Wilfs are running the Vikings the way I would run a pro football team, and that's what scares me because I know next to nothing about football.
  15. As long as we're speculating on where to lay the blame ultimately and who is capable of winning a Super Bowl, maybe we need new ownership???
