  1. Vikings Mock Drafts

    Nicely done!!! Don't know who was available at each spot, but looks like you had to be thinking BPA. When teams lock in drafting a certain position is when mistakes are made, i.e. Ponder.
  2. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Based on the talent in this year's draft, I would hope for an offensive tackle and a wide receiver to be on our radar as well.
  3. Skins fan comes in peace

    Diggs to the team in Washington with the offensive nickname is brought up every year because he is from that area. It's similar to people prognosticating Winfield Jr., Moss (Jr.), Tyler Johnson, etc... to the Vikings due to connections with former Vikings and/or the region. Fun to talk about, especially for the locals, but when the national outlets do it, (like Kiper mocking Winfield to Minnesota in the 1st!) it just seems lazy.
  4. Vikings Thru Time

    I went to high school in the mid 70s in the western suburbs while the purple people eaters were taking the Vikings to four Super Bowls. It wasn't uncommon to run into players during that time. I loaded groceries from Lund's into Alan Page and his wife's car numerous times. I played in a charity basketball game against Bobby Bryant, Brent McClanahan and others. Met both Chuck Foreman and Greg Coleman on separate occasions at the mall. But maybe the coolest experience was meeting nearly the whole team in a Minneapolis airport food court on Christmas day 1999. I was traveling with my 14 year old daughter and she calmed my nerves as we spoke with Randall Cunningham, Robert Smith, and John Randle while getting a slice of pizza. Randle had everyone laughing. These larger than life celebrities made us feel every bit as special as them, and I will never forget it or root for another team in any sport with as much joy and respect as I do for the Vikings!

  6. The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

    I'm not sure the criteria used to ascertain this concerning Teddy: "My issue is that we were better with Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater than we have been with Kirk Cousins." I love Teddy and still frequently don his Viking #5 jersey proudly. But we went 6-6 & 11-5 with him behind center and lost the only playoff game he started, and that was at home. We have gone 8-7-1 & 10-5 (Kirk didn't play week 17) under Cousins, and beat the mighty Saints in New Orleans while going 1-1 in the playoffs. I don't understand how we could be considered a better team while Teddy started than under Kirk. Now I can understand how someone would like Teddy better, or prefer him over Kirk to lead their favorite team. I like them both and will support my favorite team no matter who is on the roster, moreover I will support every player on the roster unless they are horrible humans. I am pleased that it doesn't look like we put up with that type any longer.
