  1. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    Yeah I get your point man. We're definitely better off with him than without him in the short term. I'm just ready to throw a dart in the next year or two and you have more faith in Cousins. That's alright! We can disagree on this one.
  2. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    Yep exactly. I wanted to ride out this year with Kirk and have the ability to take a rookie next year if things didn't go well this year.

    LT should be our 3rd highest priority on the OL. We know Reiff is a serviceable LT. We don't currently have anyone we know can start at Guard.
  4. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    I'm not putting all the blame on Cousins. I don't think this roster is anywhere near the quality necessary to help Kirk win a super bowl. That's why I think it was a mistake to give him another contract. He's a good quarterback who plays to what is around him. Right now what is around him isn't super bowl caliber.
  5. Vikings extend QB Kirk Cousins (Two years)

    I don't think that anyone can argue that this is the most stable the quarterback position has been in a very long time. The only real argument is if you think he's a super bowl caliber quarterback. I understand both sides of that argument. While Cousins' contract may not directly be the only reason we can't keep everyone around, having him here definitely contributes. Having a quarterback on an expensive, short deal definitely puts you in a "window" where you feel like you have to maximize your chance of winning by signing large contracts that may put you in a poor cap position down the road. If Cousins wasn't here, we may not have signed Barr to the big extension and things like that. I don't know how you can say Cousins isn't the reason we are having trouble keeping guys around this year. It's not about "pinching pennies", it's about not overpaying a quarterback who we, in our opinion, don't think can win a super bowl without a perfect situation around him.

    Just typing in "player name vs." on YouTube is effective as well.

    Strong agree. I have a feeling 22 is going to be a receiver though. I think the only one that could realistically be there that I would be excited about would be Jefferson. What do you think about him?

    I really don't want Reagor in the first. I would much prefer Mims.

    Good wide receivers are much harder to find than running backs. We got insanely lucky with Diggs and Thielen. You seem to be forgetting how long we were looking for receivers after Moss. Devin Aromashadu, Michael Jenkins, Jumpin' Jerome Simpson, Jaymar Johnson, Emmanuel Arceneaux, Aundrae Allison, and Greg Camarillo. And those are just the hilarious names I could remember off the top of my head. I don't want to take a wide receiver in the first round, but if they do I understand it. Good wide receivers are hard to find.

    All depends on how they view the board. If there's nobody they're enamored with at 13 they can trade back a bit and pick up a second in a good draft while they're at it.
  11. 2020 Draft Talk

    I mean if the 9ers we're really wanting to pick up a second, they may just do it for 22 and 58. Every year there are trades that seem like they came cheap, but if the 9ers don't have anyone sitting there that they are in love with they could value having 3 picks in the top 60.

    I wouldn't mind Rashard Higgins or Tajae Sharpe on cheap deals, but yeah there's not much there.
  13. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Most. Not all. They all are press guys, though.
  14. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I really like the talent in the first 2 rounds. It gets a bit sparse after that as far as for the types of CB that Zimmer looks for. Okudah, Henderson, Gladney, Igbenoghene, Fulton, Arnette, Jaylon Johnson, and A.J. Terrell are all good players that should go in the first 2 rounds.
  15. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Oh for sure. Waynes and Alexander hardly played their rookie years so there's more evidence of that. However, it's all about finding the right guys. He will play rookies if the show they can handle it, but it's on Rick to find those guys.
