  1. O-Line / QB / Special Teams Coach Search

    With a complete lack of discipline...and like Swede says...terrible route runner. He was the greatest instinctual athlete to ever play the game...but, those are things that cannot be taught.
  2. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Well...I'm no Einstein...maybe an Edison or a Franklin...but certainly not an Einstein!! I will admit...my trying to be objective regarding Kirk Cousins is pretty difficult. I thought he was unproductive, in terms of wins and losses, as a Redskin and I fear that lack of production is what he brings to the Vikings. I think a "successful" first season for Cousins would've been a playoff appearance. However, for the 3 years of his contract, I think Minnesota is expecting a Super Bowl and anything less will ultimately declare him a bust. My problem...and again, I admit it's MY problem...is I don't believe, even with a better offensive line, that Cousins is the QB to deliver a Super Bowl. I do apologize for coming across as condescending. That was not my intention. I'm not much a "what if" thinker...although, I'm pretty sure Einstein might have been!!
  3. 2019 Sign, Draft or Promote - Starting DT (3-Tech)

    I really like McCoy as a player and as person with great integrity. I wonder what numbers would be expected from his camp?
  4. 2019 Sign, Draft or Promote - Starting TE

    What happened to the tight ends who were 3 down players? The ones who could catch and gain yardage after the catch...block at the line of scrimmage...as well as block downfield! Are they extinct as a species?
  5. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    Neither of those things happened. The season's failure...yes, it was a failure...cannot be totally blamed on Cousins...but he gets his fair share of the blame.
  6. O-Line / QB / Special Teams Coach Search

    Ok...if this is true...than this coach is cruel...if substantiated, I would want no part of him!
  7. O-Line / QB / Special Teams Coach Search

    Yes, but man blocking scheme and zone blocking scheme are in the same category! I would imagine that someone who teaches world history and make it interesting could also do a commendable job of making US history interesting as well.
  8. O-Line / QB / Special Teams Coach Search

    I have a feeling that anyone with his years of experience could run whatever blocking scheme the OC wants him to run. He might prefer one scheme over another, but I would wager he could coach what's called for...at least, I hope.
  9. 2019 Draft Talk

    There are consequences for whatever the Vikings decide to do in the draft. With few picks in the draft, a little less money to throw around on free agents, the Vikings pretty much have to hit on ALL their off season moves, including who they hire as offensive line coach. There is very little room for error. If they are all hits...boom...competing for a Lombardi...if they are all busts...we will be competing for the first pick in the 2020 draft...if it's a mix...well, probably no better or worse than the team was in 2018. I know I am making "Captain Obvious" proclamations, but sometimes we fans expect a lot and we don't necessarily see what's obvious.
  10. O-Line / QB / Special Teams Coach Search

    Why yes! I think the Viking might possibly be interested!!
  11. O-Line / QB / Special Teams Coach Search

    I like Kubiak, but if he's hired wouldn't it place Stefanski in the position of always looking over his shoulder? If you hire Kubiak...hire him to be offensive coordinator...and let Stefanski go. I hope that doesn't happen because I believe Stefanski ought to be given at least year to put together HIS offense without worrying about who's taking his place if he has a bad game.
  12. 2019 Sign, Draft or Promote - Starting DT (3-Tech)

    I really think that Tom Johnson can come close to Richardson's production in 2018...and perhaps surpass it. I let Sheldon seek his next contract elsewhere and resign Johnson.
  13. 2019 Playoffs

    If the Super Bowl winds up to be between the Saint and the Patriots, is should just be renamed the "Disgrace Bowl."
