648 Pro Bowl
  1. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Yes, he did show a lot of moxie in the 2nd half. He really has run the play action based offense well beyond my expectations. It helps, of course, having Cook...nonetheless, he's played pretty darn well. I agree with the idea of spreading the field a bit and letting him take some more chances...as long as he's comfortable doing that...it's time.
  2. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Let's look at Cousins history. He is a streaky quarterback. He has never gone as long as this playing at his current level. Some would say he's over due to return to the Cousins whose ineffective when it counts. Me...I'm hoping he's figured it out and his current level of play is to be expected.
  3. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    I think the NFL has actually caught up with talent like Kaepernick's. In his last year in the league, Kaep was in an offense that didn't maximize what he can do. If he was in Baltimore's and Houston's offense...with all the QB option stuff...I think he could be effective. Maybe he will never be a pro-bowler or Super Bowl quarterback again. But, he could be a really good back up in an offense that takes advantage of what he can do, rather than one that tries to make him something he's not. If I recall correctly, Gabbert got hurt in the season where he replaced Kaepernick as the starter, and Kaep came in and played reasonably well. Does anyone else remember that, or is my dementia starting early?
  4. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    I think you'll have to do better than that!! Why do you think he's more of an MVP candidate than Russell Wilson...or Lamar Jackson?
  5. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    The only way for the circus to die down, in my opinion, is for a team to give him a shot. Let's not forget that Kaep took the NFL owners to court and it was uncovered that there was, indeed, collusion among the ownership, to deny Kaep a position...not for his play...but for his politics. They settled by giving Kaep a dump truck full of money. If I were Colin Kaepernick, I think I would be paranoid regarding the good intent of the NFL too. Let's remember, these owners are not Boy Scouts...they are businessmen...who couldn't give a fig leaf about fairness and integrity.
  6. Valhalla Villager: News, Rumors and Gossip

    Kaep was the best offensive player on a '49'er team that went to the Super Bowl, by far! While he's 3 years out of football, he's also 3 years more mature...with a body that hasn't taken any abuse in 3 years. In my opinion, the only reason he's not on a roster in the NFL is because NFL team owners are afraid of his activism. But he is good enough to help a team.
  7. The Often Overbearing, But Otherwise Ordinary Offensive Line

    I agree...I think Nelson is the best offensive lineman in the business. At this point in his career, he may be the Colts most valuable player.
  8. Our greatest off-season acquisition: Gary Kubiak

    So, thinking about Stefanski as the heir apparent to Zimmer...is there a CAP that teams have to abide by for coaching staff?

    I am not closed on the idea of Kaepernick joining the Vikings. If he's willing to take a back up role, he's certainly an improvement over Mannion. I would also want to see how he could be used creatively...like Taysom Hill in NO...in the backfield with Cousins. I am not worried about his social activism being a distraction, as long it's not a distraction for the Wilf's.
  10. Our greatest off-season acquisition: Gary Kubiak

    If the Vikings are to make a deep run in the playoffs, they will need someone who will be able to install some new offensive wrinkles...I think Kubiak is perfect for just that kind of role.
  11. Second favorite teams?

    Well...first off Sendejo doesn't tackle. He tries to be a missile. He'd simply bounce off of Campbell.
  12. 2020 Draft Talk

    I think you're probably right. However, if the right DT or OG is there when the Vikes pick in the first, I think I might go for need. But, again, I think you're probably right.
  13. Jockeying for the Playoffs

    Gotcha. All the things you list are not out of the realm of possibility for giving the Packers some problems.
  14. Jockeying for the Playoffs

    I am curious as to why you think the Giants might be a tough game for Green Bay?
  15. Jockeying for the Playoffs

    I think it would be the most purple Super Bowl ever!!
