  1. Vikings to hire John DeFilippo as OC

    I'd be pretty damn worried if we paid $84 million for a quarterback and didn't build the offense specifically for him. That doesn't sound like the Vikings, that sounds more like ... Somebody help me out here. What was a team that went to the trouble of getting a really good high-priced QB and then tied his hands with an ineffective offense?
  2. Dead Body found at Janoris Jenkins house

    Skipping any jokes about it being New York and/or New Jersey ... this is genuinely disturbing. If Jenkins was on the other side of the country, how did this happen? Did he have friends staying at his house and something got out of hand, or what?
  3. Julian Edelman facing 4 game suspension for PED

    It doesn't mean things are going downhill, but the problem is that Guerrero isn't really gone. As long as he's involved with the training of Brady, Edelman, Gronk and others, he will continue to be a distraction. Belichick's desire to distance himself from Guerrero, and Brady's desire to do the opposite, may be a bone of contention that eventually pries the two of them apart. I agree with you that the man is a con artist and not to be trusted, but clearly Brady does trust him. A lot. Trains with him, wrote a book with him, is developing a brand with him, etc. I don't know how he got himself so deeply enmeshed in Brady's personal and professional life, but the whole thing just gives me a bad feeling. If I were Belichick I'd be wishing I dropped the guy from the team plane into Kezar Lake when I had the chance.
  4. Vintage photos thread.

    Best thread idea ever.
  5. All abouts the wideouts

    As a former fry cook at McDonald's, I can vouch for this. I would love to see Treadwell really capitalize on all this talent I've heard so much about. There are so many hot prospects in this league who just fade away and are trivia questions five years later. I don't want to see that happen to him.
  6. Owens declines HoF Ceremony Invitation

    This is my heartbroken face.
  7. Rather lose in the playoffs or Super Bowl?

    Super Bowl. I'd be very proud of my team if they could just manage to get there.
  8. I can't think of a single guy from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls who went on to play in the NFL, so I'd have to say no to that one.
  9. Bold Predictions Thread

    He would pull it off even if he didn't play for a divisional rival. You know him, always overcoming odds and all.
  10. Bold Predictions Thread

    1. The Niners will win their division. 2. The Vikings will reach the Super Bowl as a wild card team. 3. Aaron Rodgers will be insufferably annoying. 4. One of the Lions cheerleaders will fall into a hole in spacetime and land directly in my lap while I'm watching a game. I think all of those predictions are pretty bold, except for the Aaron Rodgers bit.
  11. Vikings select...Daniel Carlson, K, Auburn

    Only when he misses.
  12. Dolphins unveil new uniforms

    These are actually ... decent-looking. I'm not used to seeing decent-looking uniforms with the Nike logo on them. How do I react to this?
  13. 2018 Minnesota Vikings Draft Class

    I'm glad we added more depth and youth in the trenches, because we needed that. I'm glad we added value at corner because we needed that too (Newman is almost 40 and the jury's still out on Alexander as a viable starter). And I'm glad we added a kicker because Forbath was not going to be a long-term option. Or was I the only one tired of getting heartburn every time we lined up for an extra point kick? I don't particularly care what the dozens of analysts or millions of non-analysts have to say about our draft class. I'll probably read goldfishwars' annual draft thread just because it's fun, but ultimately the draft itself has never been a big draw for me. (This year marks the first time I've bothered to watch any of it on TV.) The only thing that matters is how these prospects develop. Until then, optimism is healthier than the alternative, and Rick Spielman has earned my trust as a fan.
  14. Vikings sign...UDFA

    I'm seeing a lot of intriguing prospects here. Can't wait to see what they contribute.
  15. Vikings select...Daniel Carlson, K, Auburn

    He's big and strong, he's a great kicker, he can tackle ... I like this pick. After Forbath's clutch kick in the Saints game it was easier to forget that he was missing too many simple kicks for us before that, including PATs. Fortunately Rick Spielman didn't forget, and he made a bold move to address that concern.
