  1. What QB Do We Want Going Into 2018?

    Cousins makes way too many boneheaded plays like this. He is just not an intelligent QB. He probably has the same football IQ as Brian Cushing! 😂 https://youtu.be/hAYDDVzqOTo
  2. What QB Do We Want Going Into 2018?

    Kirk Cousins is not a big upgrade from what we got out of Case Keenum this past season. It would be closer to a much more expensive lateral move than anything.
  3. What QB Do We Want Going Into 2018?

    Comparing different players in different situations based on stats alone doesn’t usually mean a whole lot. Matt Stafford is WAY better than Kirk Cousins!
  4. What QB Do We Want Going Into 2018?

    My opinion is that Bradford and Bridgewater are both more talented than Cousins and we could probably keep both of them (or maybe even Keenum instead of Bradford) for the price that it will cost to get Cousins. If we sign Cousins then we won’t be able to retain any of the other QBs. I will be disappointed with any option that doesn’t keep Bridgewater on the roster for next year. He is 5 years younger than Bradford, Keenum, and Cousins. I also think that Bridgewater has more potential than any QB in this draft, even Rosen and Darnold.
  5. What QB Do We Want Going Into 2018?

    Medium/low skill and unknown health? All reports are indicating that Bridgewater has already made a full recovering, passed his physical, and is authorized to play again. The Vikings medical staff knows where his health is at and I don’t think that he would have any higher of a chance of re-injury than someone like Carson Wentz or Deshaun Watson. Its laughable that some people actually think that Bridgewater has low skill. Bridgewater has never played on a roster as talented as the 2017 Vikings. In 2014 Bridgewater had the 3rd best accuracy rating in the NFL as a 22 year old rookie. Accuracy Rating is completion percentage adjusted for dropped passes and passes thrown away. In 2015 Bridgewater had the best Accuracy Rating in the entire NFL. People defend Keenum by saying that no QB would’ve done well in the NFC Championship game if they were under pressure 48% of their snaps. Well in 2015 Bridgewater was under pressure for 47% of his snaps throughout the entire year; not just one game and he didn’t seem nearly as phased as Keenum did in the NFC Championship game. So while Bridgewater was under pressure 47% of his snaps for the whole season and playing with a much less talented roster, the 23 year old sophomore QB went on to have his best season and led the entire NFL in accuracy rating. But yeah I totally see how people could think of him as a low skill player... 🙄
  6. AJ McCarron Wins Grievence, Will Be a FA

    I think that McCarron will end up in Cleveland, but I think Cleveland may be better off trying to trade for Tyrod Taylor instead. They could probably get Tyrod Taylor, both of Buffalos first round picks, and maybe a few other pieces. Then they could draft Lamar Jackson to groom behind Tyrod Taylor.
  7. What QB Do We Want Going Into 2018?

    I’m not saying that he had good cricunstances to win. I’m saying he had good circumstances to inflate his stats as a passer. Despite injuries this year his OL hasn’t always been awful; Trent Williams and Brandon Scherff are some of the best in the league at their positions. He hasn’t a good run game, but he has played with a very good pass catching running back in Chris Thompson so he had to throw more. He played with a porous defense so he had to throw more to keep his team in the game. Reed was his best target, but he was surrounded by recieving talent. Desean Jackson was one of the leagues best deep threats; so Cousins had a lot of big plays to inflate his stats. Crowder is one of the better slot WRs in the league. Pierre Garçon was also a very good WR for them, but I find it telling that Garçon was putting up better numbers with Beathard and the 49ers than he was with Cousins and the Redskins.
  8. What QB Do We Want Going Into 2018?

    I wouldn’t take either of those options. Kirk Cousins has had good circumstances throughout his career that allowed him to pad his stats, but I in no way see him being worth the contract that he’s going to get. He’s a very middle of the road QB who makes really boneheaded decisions from time to time. I think he’s a less talented version of Tony Romo who can make a few splash plays, but will lose the game for you when he’s in high pressure situations. I don’t want to trade up for a QB in this years draft either. I don’t see many QBs this year that could be good starters as a rookie. I think that Rosen, Darnold, and Mayfield are the only QBs worth a 1st round selection this year, but they will all probably be gone in the top 5-10 picks. I think Allen is going to bust or at least be a huge project. I would consider Jackson or Rudolph if they fell in the 2nd though. I think that Bridgewater is a way better option than Cousins or trading up for a rookie. Bridgewater is better than every rookie in this years draft except for maybe Rosen, but Rosen has his own injury concerns to worry about. The only thing that Cousins has on Bridgewater is arm strength, but Bridgewater has more than enough to be successful. I’m not sure why so many people think that Carson Wentz shouldn’t have a problem coming back from his torn ACL and LCL, but are skeptical about Bridgewater being able to come back from a torn ACL, MCL, and LCL. Especially when there has been so much positive news about his recovery coming from everyone in the organization. If we are going to trade up for anything in the first round I would much rather trade up for an elite prospect that falls out of the top 15 like Derwin James or some other elite talent. I don’t think safety is a top 3 need, but he’s definitely going to be a pro bowler and will give us a seamless transition at the position once Smith starts to decline.
  9. You’re cherry picking my post, but I think you got the point. Both of the plays that I referenced happened because of the QB making bad decisions and was not the offensive lines fault. On Brady’s fumble it was the offensive lines fault.
  10. I want to find two starters. I want Easton and Hill as our primary backups. Then we can either add 1 OG and 1 OT or 2 OGs depending on where Remmer’s get put. I’m sure that Remmers playing OT or OG will be determined during the draft depending on which prospects fall to our picks. Sirles is garbage and I hope that he doesn’t make the roster next year.
  11. I’ve rewatched my DVR copy of the Eagles game 3 times now. You are absolutely fooling yourself if you still think that Keenum’s pick 6 was from Chris Long hitting his arm pit. It is clear as day and you need to go rewatch the game if you don’t believe me. Keenum wasn’t trying to throw the ball away. Keenum recognized the pressure and made a bad decision. He was clearly trying to force the ball to Adam Theilen who was in double coverage with on guy high (Rodney McLeod) and one guy low (Patrick Robinson). That ball was going to be intercepted whether Long had touched him or not. The play where Keenum has the strip sack wasn’t on the OL either. That sack was Shurmur and Keenum’s fault too. The Eagles were playing their DE’s wide the whole game and Shurmur decided to get cute with the play calling. David Morgan had absolutely no chance of being able to make his block on that play. Shurmur called a bad play, but a good QB would’ve been able to read the defense, know what his protection was, and know the capabilities of his teammates. Keenum didn’t recognize that he needed to either change the protection or audible to a different play and that’s why that sack fumble was his fault. The offensive line was not supposed to block Derek Barnett on that play which is why he got to Keenum untouched. I agree that we need to address the offensive line, but we can’t let Diggs go either. We need to find reasonably priced upgrades on the OL and I agree the two OL need to be added. OL has been our top two needs all season though. It’s not like that change happened right after the playoffs or something.
  12. Yeah our OL could improve, but I don't think our OL was to blame for us struggling to score in the playoffs. I think more of the blame is on Case Keenum struggling to throw touchdowns and getting rattled when under pressure. In the Eagles game Keenum pulled a "Bo Callahan", from the Draft Day movie, and kept snowballing after he got hit a few times.
  13. Straight Canton, homie!

    Homey - comfortably informal and inviting; cozy; homelike. Homie - Someone, particularly a friend or male acquaintance, from one's hometown.
  14. Eric's pre combine mock!

    Sherels isn’t that great at playing CB, but but he isn’t just a return man. Sherels plays both ways on special teams and is invaluable at it. That being said we could add another CB at some point in the draft, but it is by no means a 1st round need. The only reason mocks have had the Vikings taking 1st round CBs is because people are projecting Newman to leave and have a misguided belief that Waynes was terrible this past season when I’m actuality although Waynes did give up several big plays he was still a top 20 CB this year. Also unless Minkah Fitzpatrick or Derwin James miracualously drops to our pick we don’t need to draft a safety early. Smith and Sendejo have been great for us and our backups both have potential to be starters for us. On paper Tarvarus McFadden looks like a great prospect and he did lead the league in INTs a year ago, but he is very raw and gives up a ton of big plays. He has all of the physical ability, but he’s going to be a big project and will need a ton of coaching at the next level. If Jayron Kearse can drop to the 7th round because of because of his technique issues then McFadden can definitely drop to the 3rd or 4th especially with how many other CBs are projected ahead of him. According to Eric Kendricks in practice Teddy Bridgewater was “dropping dimes” on the starting defense and outperforming Case Keenum. There wasn’t any nerve or artery damage in his knee so he shouldn’t have a problem making a full recovery. I want absolutely nothing to do with Conner Williams or Tyrell Crosby. Both of those guys have bust written all over them. I would consider taking either of them in the late rounds if they fall, but they are both very overrated. I would love to be able to upgrade our OT spots, but there just aren’t many OTs worth drafting early this year. Maybe McGlinchley, Brown, or O’Niell could go in the 1st, but those guys are borderline 1st-2nd round picks and everyone after that is a developmental pick. You would be happy getting Mason Cole in the 1st?!?! He is a 4th-5th round pick at best. Hubbard, Phillips, Cole, Baker, McFadden, Bates, and Crosby would all be huge reaches with our 1st round pick. Williams could likely go in the first, but he shouldn’t.
  15. Eric's pre combine mock!

    Good job! I actually like your free agency period even better than my own. Having Eifert and Rudolph would be huge. The only thing that I would change about it is I would bring back Michael Floyd on a cheap deal. I like Isaiah Wynn a lot, but my preference would be Billy Price if both were available. I preferred my idea of trading out of the first instead of the 2nd especially if an OG is the first pick because you could get a bigger haul back and I think that one of Wynn, Price, and Hernandez is guaranteed to be there at the top of the 2nd. If I could combine you’re free agency period with my draft I think that would be ideal!
