  1. The Official XFL Thread!

    Marc Trestman is supposed to be an offensive guru and Tampa Bay is the only team in the XFL that has yet to score an offensive TD. Tampa Bay was down 5 in the 4th quarter and elected kicked a field goal at Seattle's 1 yard line. Tampa Bay could compete for the title but has ineptitude coaching right now.
  2. I wouldn't trade Kirk for Young, but I do think Young is going to be Khalil Mack good.
  3. Biggest non-QB bust?

    The first 7 picks of the 2012 draft were busts, if you count Luck's retirement as a bust. 1) Colts - Andrew Luck 2) Redskins - RGIII 3) Browns - Trent Richardson 4) Vikings - Matt Kalil 5) Jaguars - Justin Blackmon 6) Cowboys - Morris Claiborne 7) Bucs - Mark Barron A lot of talent came into the league later in the draft, but just an awful start.
  4. Trying a two Rounder - Be Nice

    Fine with James Lynch in the 2nd for the Vikings, but man that first round is tough. All the CBs I'd consider 1st round values are gone plus I think OL is a bigger need. I would prefer Tyler Biadasz, Austin Jackson or even Zach Baun or Kenneth Murray.
  5. The Official XFL Thread!

    ESPN reported that Tampa Bay opened as a 7-4 favorite on Caesar's and was projected for a league high 7 wins prior to opening week.

    Unfortunately that's probably pretty good for an NFL backup O-Lineman. Keep in mind that Rashod Hill is one of the best backup tackles in the game, since he can step in for a game or two and hold his own, but is really exploitable in one on one pass and run blocking. We have to reset our expectations with Elflein. He's a good and cheap backup and I think the Vikings have too many other needs to replace him. However they can save $2.1M by cutting him with only $200K in dead money. So I would be fine releasing him, as well. He just absolutely cannot be starting.
  7. Way too early 2020 predictions

    The bold ones: Chargers make the playoffs Cowboys win the NFC East easily and go something like 12-4 Tampa Bay wins the NFC South Lions make the playoffs as a WC Vikings win the NFC North and get a first round bye Texans do not make the playoffs (hopefully BOB gets fired for it, too) Packers and Seahawks miss the postseason Rams win the NFC West Niners are a WC team but still make the NFCCG

    Jeez. I know that was a brutal showing by Tampa Bay, but it's only week two. They opened as league favorites and I'm not giving up on them yet. Didn't these teams only have two weeks of practice prior to week 1? Plenty of time for teams to come around. Kansas City didn't have championship caliber defense until around week 11 of this past NFL season.

    Pretty sure it's 11, which can be seen at various times from the XFL Rules video (specifically 1:22).
  10. The Official XFL Thread!

    I feel like the rule changes are great minor tweaks to speed up the action, while still keeping the game as safe. Safer on kickoffs. The XFL is also doing a better job of incentivizing going for it on 4th down and going for 2/3 instead of 1 point. They've also diminished the importance of a good kicker, which makes more sense honestly. If they don't work out, they don't diminish the integrity of the league. And at best some of the features will eventually make it into the NFL.
  11. National TV Projections 2020

    Please don't make Vikings go to Seattle on a Monday night for the third straight year.
  12. The Official XFL Thread!

    Tampa Bay opens as 7/4 favorites to win the league. Maybe FL can get that proxy title they deserved from the Apollos.

    Curious why you think they would regress that much. Roster moves haven't been made, and it's true that there will be massive turnover on the defense. But the young players that ~should~ take over are all more than capable (Ifeadi Odenigbo, Mike Hughes, Holton Hill, etc.). The offensive line should theoretically improve with some additions and Garrett Bradbury improving from one of the worst centers in the league to at least middle of the pack. Cousins is also more than capable of performing at a similar level, especially if the pass protection improves from PFF's 27th graded PBU.
  14. 2020 Draft Talk

    I think we are all in agreement that this team could use a #3 WR, but I'm very curious what type of WR prospect we'd like for that role. This draft is DEEP at WR and the Vikings will likely have strong options at the end of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th rounds. Do we want a speedster like KJ Hamler or more of a sure handed/possession WR like Denzel Mims? Personally my most coveted values at WR's would KJ Hill from tOSU and Lynn Bowden from Kentucky. My homer pick is also Gabriel Davis out of UCF, who I think could develop into a top 10 WR in the right situation.
  15. I don't disagree with this hot take, but it is too early to say. They are prime candidate to improve: They had the point differential of an 8-8 team, but had a -17 TO differential. They were also missing their most valuable player on defense, Derwin James, for 11 games this year. This all led to an abysmal and completely unsustainable record of 2-10 in one score games. It will likely depend on whether they can get an improvement in QB play that won't turn the ball over 23 times, but the Chargers are one of the more likely candidates for improvement next year. If they could just be average in one score games and turnovers, they should easily be able to get 10 or more wins next year, but again, that'll be largely dependent on their QB come September.
