  Boos bombard Vikings in home loss to Bills :doah:

 :coffee: ....
MINNEAPOLIS -- Running off the field and to the locker room after their game Sunday, Sept. 23, at U.S. Bank Stadium, Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White commandeered Kirk Cousins’ catchphrase and yelled “You like that?” several times.
There was plenty to like from the Bills in their 27-6 rout of the Vikings. Coming in as a 17-point underdog, they took a 27-0 halftime lead and cruised to a stunning and stunningly easy victory.

Minnesota fans let their feelings be known :taz: by booing! (dat's not nice) throughout the game.

“We didn’t give them much to cheer for,” Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph said. “So it’s embarrassing on our part, the performance that we put forth today, and it’s a shame it was here at home in front of our fans. They deserve better than that.”
Wide receiver Adam Thielen called it “butt-whooping.” Running back Latavius Murray said the Vikings wee “punched in the mouth” and ranked it one of the worst losses of his six-year NFL career.
Told about White using his catchphrase, Cousins shrugged and said that is “pretty much the most common thing I hear on the field.”
What wasn’t common was the Vikings quarterback being outplayed by Buffalo’s Josh Allen, a rookie making his second start. Allen completed 15 of 22 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown and ran for two TDs.
Cousins completed 40 of 55 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown, but he threw for just 44 yards in the first half before piling up meaningless stats when the game was no longer in doubt.
Cousins especially hurt the Vikings (1-1-1) by losing fumbles on consecutive first-half possessions. With Buffalo (1-2) leading 7-0, Cousins lost the ball on a sack by Trent Murphy at the Minnesota 15. That led to a field goal and a 10-0 Bills lead.
Cousins fumbled again on a sack by Jerry Hughes, and Buffalo (1-2) took over at the Vikings’ 25. Two plays later, Allen threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Jason Croom for a 17-0 lead.
“Obviously, you can’t turn the ball over and give their offense a short field,” Cousins said.
The Vikings never were able to recover from the two fumbles.
“Turnovers never help, and where they turned them over was not good,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. “But the defense has to come out and stop them.”
The defense didn’t do much of that in the first half. Allen, who opened the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown run, added a 1-yard run in the second quarter for a 24-0 lead. Later in the quarter, Stephen Hauschka made his second field goal, a 50-yarder, for a 27-0 lead.
The Vikings needed a 4-yard touchdown pass from Cousins to Rudolph with 2:59 left in the game to avoid their first shutout since 2007.
The Vikings almost made history with their futility running the ball. Minnesota, with starting running back Dalvin Cook sidelined with a hamstring injury, had just 14 yards rushing. The team record for fewest in a game is 11, set in 1996 against Chicago.
“Obviously, that was a poor performance by us,” Zimmer said. “I obviously didn’t do a well enough job preparing this football team for this game. It was probably as poor a first half as I’ve seen in quite while.”
In addition to Cook, the Vikings played without defensive end Everson Griffen (knee), punt returner Marcus Sherels (rib) and tight end David Morgan (knee). Zimmer said Griffen did not attend the game to take care of a personal matter.
In the first half Sunday, the Vikings lost cornerback Trae Waynes and tackle Rashod Hill to ankle injuries. While Hill’s injury is not believed to be serious, Zimmer said Waynes will have an MRI.
The Vikings have a big game Thursday against the Rams in Los Angeles. Players insisted they weren’t taking the Bills lightly while looking ahead to the next game.
“It is the NFL, so all teams are capable of coming out and playing at a high level and being successful,” said linebacker Anthony Barr. “It wasn’t anything like that. It was just a lot of mental mistakes, physical mistakes.”
The Vikings had a number of penalties in the first half, including Barr’s horse-collar tackle of Allen as he was going out of bounds on second-and-18 on the second play of the second quarter. That led to Allen’s 1-yard run.
No, there wasn’t much to like from a Vikings standpoint. But there certainly was on the Bills side.
“It’s the first win of 2018 for the Buffalo Bills,” White said. “So, of course it is a big deal. Ya’ll like that?”

Vikings' Everson Griffen arrested
 By judd zulgad
 
February 1, 2011 — 12:42am
 
Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen was arrested on a charge of felony battery on Monday after assaulting a police officer and being tased near the Southern Cal campus, according to a spokesman with the Los Angeles Police Department.

In a story first reported by the Daily Trojan newspaper, the police pulled Griffen over around 4 p.m. Pacific time but he did not have valid identification on him. When police questioned Griffen, he became aggressive and attempted to run away. Griffen then assaulted one of the officers who was pursuing him. The officer used his taser on Griffen, who was arrested.

 Griffen was being held at the 77th Community Police Station jail as of late Monday and his bail was set at $50,000.

Vikings' Kentrell Brothers returns from suspension, laments 'dumb decisions' :bonk:

 :coffee: ,,,,,
EAGAN, Minn. — Linebacker Kentrell Brothers returned to the Vikings poorer by $148,235.
That's how much money Brothers lost while serving a four-game NFL suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. He rejoined the team this week.

 :mad1: .....
"The only thing I have learned is don't make dumb decisions because those situations, they hurt," Brothers said Wednesday before his first-regular season practice. "Not only am I hurt mentally but financially. I lose four game checks." :banghead:

Brothers, a three-year veteran with a 2018 base salary of $630,000, had to stay away from the team during his suspension. He spent time in his native Oklahoma and working out in Arizona.

 :popcorn: ....
"That's all I could do is work out," he said. "I could do some recovery and watch the games and try to decipher the plays. But I didn't get to take my (team) iPad with me."
The Vikings have a roster exception on Brothers until Monday. If they want to activate him for Sunday's game at Philadelphia, they will need to make a roster move to create room.
Head coach Mike Zimmer said the decision to activate Brothers will come down to how he looks in practice. Brothers played just nine snaps from scrimmage in his first two seasons but has been a valuable contributor on special teams.

"It's been a tough four weeks for me, but I'm back now and I'm happy to help wherever they need me," Brothers said.

Cook out:

Running back Dalvin Cook, who said Monday his hamstring injury is "still healing,'' did not participate in Wednesday's practice. He sat out a 27-6 loss to Buffalo on Sept. 23 before returning for last Thursday's 38-31 loss against the Rams at Los Angeles Coliseum, where he carried 10 times for 20 yards, all in the first half.

Also sitting out Wednesday: corner-back Trae Waynes, who suffered a concussion against the Rams, and defensive end Everson Griffen, away from the team for personal reasons. He will miss his third straight game on Sunday. :doah:

Returning to practice on a limited basis was cornerback Marcus Sherels, who missed the past two games with a rib injury. Also limited were nose tackle Linval Joseph (shoulder) and defensive end Tashawn Bower (ankle). Tom Johnson (ankle) and safety Anthony Harris (hamstring), who sat out against the Rams, were full participants.
Sendejo appeals
Safety Andrew Sendejo said he appealed the $53,482 fine he was assessed for a Sept. 16 hit  on Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams, which drew a flag for unnecessary roughness. training-087

"I was surprised by it," said Sendejo, who added he doesn't think the hit deserved a penalty. :cry:

Last season, Sendejo served a one-game suspension for a hit and was fined for another. He latest fine was so big because he was dubbed a repeat offender.

Anthony Barr and Linval Joseph were also both fined by the NFL. Barr, a linebacker, was fined $20,054 for a horse collar tackle and $10,026 for a facemask penalty in a 27-6 loss to Buffalo on Sept. 23. Joseph, a nose tackle, was fined $20,054 for in the same game getting a personal foul for lowering his helmet. :doah:

Briefly:

Tackle Aviante Collins, out for the season after undergoing surgery Sept. 12 to repair a torn right biceps, is back at the TCO Performance Center rehabbing. "It's extremely frustrating, knowing where I would be at on this team," said Collins, expected to be the swing tackle this season. He said his "freak injury" occurred while blocking in a Sept. 6 practice.

 :reporter;....
Does Vikings coach Mike Zimmer think safety Andrew Sendejo is getting a reputation among NFL referees?


"Yeah," Zimmer said Monday, Oct. 8. "Probably." :taz:

 :doah: ...
Sendejo was penalized under the NFL's targeting rules for the second time in five games this season late in the Vikings' 23-21 victory over the Eagles in Philadelphia. Identified as a "repeat offender," Sendejo could be suspended for Sunday's noon kickoff against the Arizona Cardinals at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Asked Monday if he expected a suspension, Sendejo said, "Uh, no." :shocked:

 :popcorn: ....
Sendejo was suspended one game last season after a hit on then-Baltimore Ravens receiver Mike Wallace, his second such penalty that season. He also was fined $24,309 for a helmet hit on Tampa Bay tight end Cameron Brate in Week 3.

"These officials watch tape, too," Zimmer said. "I was talking to a lot of them before the (Eagles) game, and we were talking about some of the things the other team does, and I said, 'Do you have anything about us?' He said, 'Yeah, your one guy does this a lot.' It wasn't Sendejo, but it was someone else. So, they watch tape, too."

There's no question Sendejo is on the NFL's radar, and not just for his tackling style. During an Aug. 3 training camp practice, Sendejo wore a baseball cap featuring the motto, "Make football violent again." It was the same day the NFL had on-field officials address the new rules with Vikings players at TCO Performance Center.

Asked if he feels he's being targeted by officials, Sendejo said, "I don't know. I'm just out there playing ball."

Zimmer didn't think much about Sunday's penalty, assessed after Sendejo hit tight end Zach Ertz from behind after an incompletion in the end zone on Philadelphia's final drive.
"That wasn't, I mean, you can't, I don't know," Zimmer said Monday. :confused:
Vikings' Andrew Sendejo back in NFL's cross hairs after second targeting penalty.

 :coffee: ...
The NFL beefed up its rules on tackling during owners meetings in August. According to the 2018 NFL Rules book, "It is a foul if a player lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent." On Sunday, Sendejo did initiate helmet-to-helmet contact on Ertz.

The penalty, officially for unnecessary roughness, set the Eagles up first-and-goal from the 7-yard line, and Ertz caught a touchdown pass on the next play.
George Iloka didn't think much of the call, either. A six-year veteran who started 76 games with Cincinnati before signing a free-agent deal with Minnesota in August, Iloka said defensive players don't even talk about the new rules anymore.
"Why? Can't change it, why talk about it?" the 28-year-old safety said Monday. "What are you going to do?"

The NFL defines the defenseless player rule as "if a player initiates unnecessary contact against a player who is in a defenseless posture."
"I told Sendejo, 'I would do the same thing. Maybe hit him harder, if I could,' " Iloka said. "What are you going to do different? You're not going to let him catch the ball in front of you because of the rules.

"In situations like that, we're going to do what we're trained to do and do what comes naturally in this game of football. And if the refs want to make a call like that, I feel like it's not what football should be. That's on them, and we'll let fans keep complaining and hopefully they'll change it a little bit."

Sendejo was fined $53,482 for a penalized hit on Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams in Week 2, double his previous fine from 2017. That could escalate again.
Said Sendejo: "All you can do is try to play by the rules and do the best you can." :banghead:

What is with all of these ACL's.

Bigger, stronger, faster.

I think with football stronger players training harder year round you end up with more repetitive stress on knee joints, which leads to more  injuries.  Besides Teddy, I think there have been a couple of other guys who have pulled up with non-contact knee injuries as well.

I think you see it with baseball pitchers too.  They all throw so hard all the time that their elbow tendons blow out.  One Tommy John surgery later and they are better than they were before.

 :reporter; Report: Vikings plan to play Dalvin Cook, on a limited basis


A Week 2 hamstring injury has hampered running back Dalvin Cook for most of the past seven weeks. But he may end up getting a chance to face the team he was playing last year when his ACL tore.

According to Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Vikings currently plan to use Cook on Sunday against the Lions. If Cook plays, he will be on a limited snap count.
Cook was expected to return three weeks ago against the Cardinals, but he ultimately was scratched.

A second-round pick who suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week Four last year against the Lions, Cook originally injured the hamstring against the Packers in Week Two. Less than two weeks later (and after missing a Week Three debacle against the Bills), Cook aggravated the injury on a Thursday night against the Rams. :banghead:

Cook has sputtered during his three appearances in 2018, a far cry from the impact he made in 2017. :undecided: He has 98 rushing yards and 107 receiving yards this year. As a rookie, he had 354 rushing yards and 90 receiving yards in four games.

 Vikings WR Treadwell fined $13,369 by NFL for throwing helmet :taz:

EAGAN, Minn. — Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell was fined $13,369 by the NFL for throwing his helmet last Sunday against New Orleans, a source said Saturday.  :tut:
 

The fine had been expected.  :reporter; When asked Friday if the NFL fines players for what Treadwell did, he said, “Yeah, they do.’’ :bonk: When asked if had gotten word then about being fined, he said, “I plead the fifth.’’ :confused:


In the 30-20 loss at U.S. Bank Stadium, Minnesota was flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct when Treadwell threw down his helmet in frustration :mad1: after Adam Thielen lost a second-quarter fumble that was returned 54 yards to the Vikings 33. The penalty moved the ball to the 18, and the Saints scored a touchdown two plays later to take a 17-13 lead.

Treadwell said Friday that Vikings coach Mike Zimmer spoke to him about the incident.


“Obviously, it was an emotional play,’’ said Treadwell, in his third season. “Coach said what a coach would say, ‘It’s not acceptable.’ And I know that. I got to do a better job of controlling my emotions and (can’t) hurt the team. So that’s part of growing in this league and part of being better as a player.’’

       :tut: Don’t overthink it: As the defense goes, so go the Vikings :scratch:

MINNEAPOLIS — How have the Vikings rallied to pull themselves back into relevance after a 1-2-1 start? With defense, mostly, but also a slightly improved running game. 

The story isn’t told entirely by defensive statistics; three missed field goals, for instance, cost the Vikings victory in a 29-29 tie at Green Bay in Week 2, and the Vikings are 1-3-1 when they lose the turnover battle. They also have played several games without end Everson Griffen, linebacker Anthony Barr, tackle Linval Joseph and safety Andrew Sendejo.


Some of those players have returned, and coach Mike Zimmer said he continues to tweak a base defense coming under increasingly tense scrutiny from opponents and teams hoping to achieve some of the Vikings’ recent success.

But whatever the reasons, the defense undoubtedly has improved since Week 4, when the Vikings gave up a season-high 556 yards in a 38-31 loss to the Rams on Sept. 27 in Los Angeles. They played probably their best game of the season in last Sunday’s 24-9 victory over Detroit at U.S. Bank Stadium.

As Minnesota held the Lions without a touchdown, and sacked quarterback Matt Stafford a franchise-record 10 times, the Vikings’ defense appeared to have finally become the one most expected after returning every key member of a unit that ranked No. 1 in total defense during the 2017 regular season.

“I wasn’t on that team, you know?” said defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, who has made his presence felt since signing a one-year free-agent deal in the offseason. “We gladly would like to be the No. 1 defense in the league and all that stuff, but still got some season left and winning games is more important than what y’all’s (statistics) say.”

The Vikings head into their next game, Nov. 18 at Chicago, a half-game behind the :bow: fabulous Bears :blues brothers: in the NFC North, having won four of their past five games.

“It’s meshing together,” Joseph said after the Lions game.

The running game has improved, as well. After averaging a meager 77 yards in the first four games — during which time Minnesota ranked dead last in rushing among 32 NFL teams — they have run for an average of 104 yards in their past five games.

But the Vikings’ offense has been more than adequate, averaging 24.6 points a game with the NFL’s sixth-best passing game (374.3 yards a game) behind new quarterback Kirk Cousins. The difference the past five games has been most apparent on defense, and the biggest reason might be schematic adjustments

  NFL player facing the most pressure in the second half.

 :reporter; Brace Hemmelgarn/USA TODAY Sports

Dalvin Cook, Running Back, Minnesota Vikings:

Similar to the Texans, the Vikings now possess the passing attack to compete for a championship, and the defense is improving. Even with a loss to the Saints sprinkled in, Minnesota has allowed just 18.8 points per contest in the last five games. :happy1:

But .... the Vikings need more from their ground game. They are fifth to last with 91.7 rushing yards per game this season, :confused: and they fare just a little better, coming in at No. 19, in rushing yards per attempt (4.2). :doah:

Of course, the first step with Cook is staying healthy, as he has missed four games this season. :mad1: Minnesota needs him to do that and produce to win the NFC North. :banghead:

What's cookin wit Cook? :moon:

The Buccaneers once again benched the struggling Ryan Fitzpatrick, bringing Jameis Winston back in with the team trailing 24-7 to the lowly New York Giants.

Winston was originally benched in Week 9 after a series of bad performances, but Fitzpatrick has provided no lift at all. He was 13-of-21 passing on Sunday but had tossed three picks without finding the end zone. This is probably the last we’ll see of him, and it will perhaps be Winston’s final opportunity to show the Buccaneers that he deserves to remain their quarterback of the future.

That huge Kirk Cousins contract is not looking like money well spent by the Vikings. :embarrassed:

 :reporter; ...
By Washington Post Today at 12:04 p.m.

 Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) warms up prior to the game against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports
Ten games into their season, the Minnesota Vikings look nothing like a Super Bowl team. The huge contract that they handed to quarterback Kirk Cousins in free agency during the offseason has not been money well spent.

 :tut: ....
Cousins threw two interceptions Sunday night, Nov. 19, in Chicago, one of which was returned for a key fourth-quarter touchdown in the Vikings' 25-20 loss to the Bears, which dropped Minnesota's record to 5-4-1.

 :popcorn: ....
It's not all about Cousins. He actually has put up good numbers this season. And the Vikings' biggest issue Sunday night was their inability to block Bears defensive standouts Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks, not the play of Cousins.

But it's a bottom-line business. And the bottom line for Cousins and the Vikings is that they reached the NFC championship game last season with Case Keenum at quarterback, then said their farewell to him by signing Cousins to a fully guaranteed three-year, $84 million contract. The only way for the signing to be a success is for Cousins, a 4,000-yard passer in each of the previous three seasons for the Washington Redskins, to take the Vikings to the Super Bowl.

 :embarrassed: ....
There's no indication that's going to happen. The Vikings right now are not in the class of the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams, the NFC's top teams. They can't even keep pace with the Bears in the NFC North. Chicago upped its record to 7-3 with the win.

 :scratch: ....
"I thought Kirk Cousins would outplay [Bears quarterback] Mitch Trubisky," former NFL coach Tony Dungy said at halftime on the NBC telecast Sunday night. "That has not been the case."

Cousins spoke during the week about the need to avoid committing turnovers against a Chicago defense so adept at forcing them. He did not heed his own words. :moon:

He threw an ugly interception in the final seconds of the first half. While under pressure, Cousins sailed a pass high over the head of tight end Kyle Rudolph and directly into the hands of Bears safety Adrian Amos at the Chicago 8-yard line.

Then in the fourth quarter, the Vikings trailed 14-6 when they got the ball at their 11-yard line with a little more than 8:30 to play. Cousins's pass toward wide receiver Laquon Treadwell was intercepted by Bears safety Eddie Jackson, who sprinted to the end zone. The Bears added a two-point conversion and pushed their advantage to 22-6.

The Vikings managed to make things interesting from there, all the way until an onside kick recovered by the Bears to seal the outcome in the final minute. Cousins piled up some passing yardage late. He threw touchdown passes in the final five minutes to wide receivers Aldrick Robinson and Stefon Diggs and ended with 262 yards on 30-for-46 passing.

 :confused: ....
That's not terrible. But, in truth, Cousins's biggest flaws were on display. He couldn't get out of the way of the pass rush. And when crunchtime arrived, he committed an ill-timed gaffe.

The Vikings' season isn't over. Even if they can't overtake the Bears in the division race, they have a chance at an NFC wild-card spot. But this is a season in which much more was expected. Sneaking into the postseason isn't enough. Even winning a playoff game or two and reaching the NFC championship game isn't enough. :bonk:

Cousins was signed to be the final piece of a Super Bowl puzzle. :cool: It does not appear he will be that.  :undecided: To whom $84 million is given, much is expected. Cousins is finding that out. :crazy:

I disagree with the premise of that Washington Post article. 

First, I think lack of offensive success should be blamed on the offensive line performance.  Cousins is one of the most harassed quarterbacks in the league.  And you have to be able to run the ball.  Vikes are 31st in rushing.  You need the run game to open up play-action passing.  That is the job of the offensive line.  How many time did you see Murray or Cook get to the line and there was no hole.  Its the O-line, silly.

I don't think we overspent on Cousins.  That is the new going rate for top-flight free agency QBs.  The alternative is to graft a star who is good right away, pay him peanuts for the first 5 years, so you can pay the other players.

And as for Keenum, we'd probably only have 2 or 3 wins so far instead of the 5 wins (and a tie) that we got with Cousins.  Keenum hasn't exactly lit it up for Denver.

And we can't underestimate the change over with offensive coordinators.  It take time for everyone to figure things out.  And that ain't cousins fault either.

No, Cousins was money well spent.  Now we just need to figure out how to upgrade the offensive line.

P.S.  I wouldn't want to be in Zim's Defensive meeting after they gave up 3.8 yards per rush attempt last night.  Yes, our D strung a few plays out, and there were some tackles for loss, but the rest of the time the Bears were gashing us for 8 yards a clip on the ground when they ran north and south.

Ah gee, what a surprise. From the Sour Grapes Gazette no less where they just lost their #1 quarterback to a season ending injury... :scratch:

I agree Steve-O. O line is and has been a problem for many moons. They are injured but as they say, it's part of the game. No one has an exclusive in that dept. Getting Morgan back in healthy condition would be a plus. 

22 yards rushing last nite was pathetic. Either Cook is still not 100%, the line play sucks or both. Looks like the new offensive coordinator is still learning the ropes. Once they figured out Chicago's D couldn't keep up with the up tempo, no huddle offense it was too late.

I wouldn't buy my Superbowl tickets just yet if I were a Bears fan. Unless of course you want to watch KC or NE play LA or NO! :rotflmao: If Mack and/or Hicks go down they're in trouble. And speaking of trouble, if Trubisky continues to run like that, someone will eventually get him in their crosshairs and break him in two. Think Carson Wentz. Luckily he got the benefit of the doubt on some pretty obvious holding calls or he could've been running for his life more frequently. The Bears are a good team but young and not all that deep. Let's see how they do the rest of the season and especially in that last game.

Da Bears have two more wins now than the Vikes.  The Vikes gotta make up one win someplace before the last game of the season.

Forgetting about common opponents the rest of the wya, Da Bears have to play the Giants, Rams, and 49ers.  Vikes play Patriots, Seahawks, and Dolphins. 

Sadly, I like Da Bears' chances of maintaining their two game lead up into the last game of the season.

   Zimmer preaches basic football, not new tricks, for Vikings offense.

Nov 19, 2018 at 10:01 p.m.

 :angry2: ....
 Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer was not happy with the turnovers against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Quinn Harris / USA TODAY Sports
EAGAN, Minn. -- Vikings coach Mike Zimmer figures it’s time to get back to the basics on offense.

After a shaky performance in Sunday’s 25-20 loss at Chicago, Zimmer said Monday the Vikings “have too much volume” on offense. So what did he mean by that? :scratch:


“Let’s just play football. …” Zimmer said. “Maybe we just need to focus a little bit on not trying to trick the other team quite so much.’’ :confused:

On Sunday, the Vikings had a season-low 268 yards of total offense and 22 yards rushing, their second-lowest total of the year. They committed three turnovers. :bonk:

“You want to add new plays every week and new plays and new plays and new plays,’’
Zimmer said. “If you’re not executing, it might be the best play in the world. Vince Lombardi might have designed it, but if you can’t execute it, then it doesn’t do you any good. Can’t protect for it or whatever it is.’’

Zimmer didn’t directly mention first-year offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, who calls the plays. The Vikings are 14th in the NFL in total offense and haven’t been as potent recently as they were earlier in the season. The Vikings (5-4-1) have averaged 21.3 points the past three games, two of them losses, after averaging 25.3 in the first seven.

“There’s times that we need to stick with it a little bit more,’’ Zimmer said of the running game. :embarrassed:

Turnovers were an issue Sunday after Zimmer said he had preached all week about protecting the ball. Quarterback Kirk Cousins threw two interceptions and running back Dalvin Cook lost a fumble. :embarrassed:

“I’ve asked several players if they’re listening to me or not or if they quit listening to me,’’ Zimmer said. “I didn’t ask them, ‘Did you?’ but, ‘Did these guys stop listening to me?’  :scratch: And they said no.’’

Cousins completed 30 of 46 passes for 262 yards but was inaccurate for much of the game. Zimmer said pressure wasn’t a big issue since Cousins had “a lot of clean pockets,’’ but overall he expressed confidence in his quarterback.

“Other than the turnovers, I have a hard time faulting him,’’ Zimmer said of Cousins, who has thrown seven interceptions this season and leads the NFL with six lost fumbles. :tut:

Penalty prone:

The Vikings had an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and two flags for unnecessary roughness. :banghead:

In the second quarter, linebacker Eric Wilson was called for unsportsmanlike conduct because he said it was considered taunting to toss Chicago receiver Taylor Gabriel’s towel back at him after it had fallen off. Wilson said it was a “petty” call. :happy1:


“I think the one on Eric Wilson was off base,’’ Zimmer said. :party1:

Kendricks was penalized for hitting Chicago running back Tarik Cohen out of bounds in the fourth quarter, and Smith got flagged for a fourth-quarter hit on Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

“(Kendricks) touched the guy, he was still in bounds, and then hit the white stripe and the guy kind of took a dive,’’ Zimmer said. “Harrison has got to pull off of the quarterback.’’

Asked about his penalty, Kendricks said, “I’m not a dirty player. I haven’t done that before. … You got to be smart.’’

Compton pulls himself:
After missing two games with a right knee injury, Vikings left guard Tom Compton returned against the Bears. But he didn’t make it out of the third quarter.

Compton was in for 36 plays before giving way to Danny Isidora, who was in for the final 31 snaps.

“I tried to do the best I could,’’ said Compton, returning from a sprained MCL. “I felt like things were going all right in the first quarter. Second quarter, I could kind of feel it coming on, and then by the time the third quarter hit, I just couldn’t really hold up, and I just thought we’d have a better chance to win if I came out, so I took myself out.’’

Compton said he didn’t feel “too great” Monday. He’s hoping, though, to be ready for Sunday night’s game against Green Bay at U.S. Bank Stadium.

“Hopefully, with a week of prep, I’ll be good to go,” he said. :happy1:

Looking to bounce back:

The Vikings were considered Super Bowl contenders before the season. Now, they’re in a fight to just make the playoffs. :doah:

After Sunday’s loss, the Vikings are 1 1/2 games behind Chicago (7-3) in the NFC North. If the playoffs started now, they would be the No. 6 seed in the NFC as the second wild-card team.

“We’re a good team,’’ Kendricks said. “We know that. It’s just about going out there and doing it. Quit talking about it. Just getting back to work, putting our hard hats on and no excuse. We’ve got to point the finger at ourselves, so we’ve just got to get the job done period.”

Safety Anthony Harris said the Vikings can’t dwell on Sunday’s defeat and must focus on Green Bay. The Packers (4-5-1) will show up at U.S. Bank Stadium in what looks to be a  :mad1: must-win situation.

  Vikings’ Harris ranked No. 1 safety in NFL :bow:

 :reporter;
By Barry Amundson on Nov 19, 2018 at 10:11 p.m.

 
EAGAN, Minn. -- According to Pro Football Focus, the Vikings have the NFL’s top-ranked safety. But his name is not Harrison Smith.

Smith has been rated No. 1 at times in recent seasons, but the top guy in the league now, according to the analytics site, is Anthony Harris.


The four-year veteran hadn’t played enough before Sunday night’s 25-20 loss at Chicago to be considered for a ranking. But he qualifies now after intercepting two passes, defending three passes and being on the field for all 74 defensive plays against the Bears.

With a mark of 94.5, Harris was rated as the NFL’s top safety in Week 11, raising his season rating to 92.5. Smith, who hasn’t been as dominant this year as in past seasons, is No. 22 at 75.5.

“He’s having an opportunity to show what he has and to play his role, and he’s making the most of his opportunities,” Vikings defensive end Stephen Weatherly said of Harris on Monday. “It’s a feel-good story.”

In the first five games this season, Harris didn’t play a single snap on defense. Then starting safety Andrew Sendejo was sidelined with a groin injury, and Harris saw his first action as a reserve.

Sendejo has missed the past five games. George Iloka was his primary replacement in the first two games, but Harris has taken over the past three games, playing every snap in the past two.

“Each year, I’ve been making strides in getting better, and increase my role and help this team win and do positive things on the field,” said Harris, who joined the Vikings in 2015 as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia.

Harris had the best game of his pro career in Sunday’s loss. Sitting in his locker Monday were the two balls he had saved from the first multi-interception game.

“I felt pretty good, the opportunity to get my hands on a few interceptions,” said Harris, who had his first career interception Oct. 14 against Arizona and is tied with Smith for the team lead with three. “I would say it would have felt a lot better if we were able to pull out a win, but it’s just something to try to build on.”

With Chicago leading 3-0 early in the second quarter, Harris intercepted a Mitch Trubisky pass at the Minnesota 32, but the Vikings offense was unable to convert the turnover into points.

With the Bears leading 14-0 late in the third quarter, Harris returned an interception 33 yards to the Bears’ 31. This time, the Vikings came away with a field goal.


“It’s a little bit disappointing,” Harris said. “You want to take advantage of all the opportunities you get. But, you know, it’s something, this game of football, there’s going to be adversity.”

Harris started eight games in his first three seasons, filling in when Smith or Sendejo was injured. During the offseason, Harris added about 10 pounds to get to 200.

“I tried not to bulk up where it would slow me down,” he said. “So I put on a little weight while keeping my mobility. And I worked on my flexibility, being able to move better.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Harris has improved in other areas.

“I just think confidence,” Zimmer said. “He sees things and reacts. … He’s very smart. He’s good visually, kind of understanding what the offense is trying to do.”

Zimmer will need to make a decision on who starts when Sendejo is cleared to return.  :scratch: Sendejo has been the regular starter since 2015 alongside Smith and ranks No. 39 among safeties this season, according to Pro Football Focus.

4 hrs ago......
 
 :tut: ...
Vikings safety Harrison Smith heard from the league this week about a hit he put on Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in last Sunday’s game between the NFC North teams.

 :coffee: ......
Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Smith has been fined $10,026 for the hit. Smith hit Trubisky after Trubisky threw himself to the ground at the end of a run.

 :popcorn: ....
Trubisky did not make a traditional feet first slide, but the league made it a point of emphasis this season that a quarterback “not have to slide feet first to be considered to be giving himself up.” Trubisky hurt his shoulder (ouchey) on the play and did not take part in Thursday’s game against the Lions as a result.

Pelissero adds that Smith plans to appeal the fine. :angry2:

  :reporter; Why does Vikings QB Kirk Cousins struggle when lights are bright? :cool:

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins pushed back when asked this week about his 4-12 career record in NFL prime-time games. :doah:
His reasoning: In the NFL, each game is its own entity, and his struggles when the lights are brightest are coincidence more than anything else. :cool:

Still, whether Cousins wants to admit it or not, his struggles in such games have become a trend. It sure feels that way with his new team, the Vikings, with whom he is 0-3 in prime-time games this season.


While the three losses have come against three pretty good teams — 38-31 on the road to the Los Angeles Rams, 30-20 at home against the New Orleans Saints and 25-20 last Sunday on the road against the Chicago Bears — Cousins needs to find a way to remedy those issues against the Green Bay Packers at 7:20 p.m. Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium.

“I feel like a little bit of a broken record because the question each week is, ‘How important is this game?’” Cousins said. “And the answer is, ‘Yeah, it’s important.’ They all are. I don’t really know how to give a different answer on it. It’s an important game. We need and want to come out with a win and there’s certainly a sense of urgency, as there is every week as we prepare.”

That sense of urgency will more than likely hinge on how Cousins performs in another pressure-filled environment. He hasn’t shown the ability to rise to the occasion in big moments this season; the Vikings (5-4-1) haven’t beaten a team with a winning record.

“If there’s a difference (with prime-time games), it’s going to be that we’re playing good football teams,” Cousins said. “We got flexed to that prime-time game last week because we were playing a really good football team. If either of us weren’t good, I don’t think we’d get flexed. If there was a difference with prime time, that would be it. I don’t know of many other differences. I certainly don’t treat them any differently.”

Perhaps the most interesting part of Cousins’ struggles in prime-time games is that he actually puts up pretty good numbers. He has completed 68 percent of his passes for 4,883 yards, 31 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Those are money numbers.

“The untrained eye is going to look at the final score and say, ‘Well, that was not a good performance,’ ” Cousins said. “The trained eye is going look a little deeper and say, ‘Well, let’s go play by play and say how we did.’ It’s week to week, as every game is, regardless of when we play.”
Cousins is quick to point out that statistics aren’t always indicative of success, referencing how the Washington Redskins won last season on Thanksgiving Day despite his poor performance.

“It gets a little bit convoluted trying to look at a stat and pair it with a player,” Cousins said. “We’d have to go back through all the prime-time games I’ve played and talk through them because every game is different.”

 :reporter;   Teams on upset alert in NFL Week 12


The playoffs are inching closer and closer every weekend, and following the Thanksgiving holiday in NFL Week 12, things are really heating up.
There are some huge match ups on the slate this week with playoff implications. There are also some intriguing contests between teams whose seasons have no intrigue aside from where they’ll land in the draft order next April.

Every game carries significant consequences, regardless. Every team is fighting for something. So, who’s on upset alert this weekend as the league moves toward its final quarter?

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings (-3)

If the Packers have any shot at clawing their way back into the NFC playoff hunt, it has to start this Sunday night in Minneapolis. To this point in the season, Green Bay has not won a single game on the road. And both teams are fighting like crazy to shrug off mediocrity at this point — the game is going to be incredibly competitive from start to finish.
One reason to believe the Packers have what it takes to finally win a road game this year is the burgeoning stardom of running back Aaron Jones. Fans and fantasy experts have been clamoring for the playmaker to receiver more meaningful snaps the past two years. Now he’s finally getting that kind of attention in the Packers offense. And to nobody’s surprise, he’s dominating.
Another reason to believe Green Bay will prevail is that Kirk Cousins has thrown four interceptions the past three games, including two against Chicago last week. He seems to be pressing, and the Packers have the playmakers to take advantage.

:reporter;  Stefon Diggs out of practice again, says he’s playing Sunday. :scratch:

  :coffee: ....
Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs missed a second straight day of practice on Thursday because of a we- knee injury, :cry: but he doesn’t expect the issue to be a problem this weekend.
Diggs said, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press, that he will be in the lineup against the Patriots on Sunday.

While that’s an optimistic view, Diggs hasn’t always been on the money  :tut: when it comes to medical predictions. He said early this month that he would play in Week Nine against the Lions despite a chest injury, but he wound up on the inactive list on gameday.
Cornerback Xavier Rhodes also sat out practice for the second straight day as he deals with a hamstring injury that head coach Mike Zimmer called “very, very mild.” The team will practice again on Friday and issue injury designations for Sunday later in the day.

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings have released Friday’s injury report ahead of facing the New England Patriots (8-3) at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs (knee) and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hamstring) both practiced for the first time this week on Friday and are listed as questionable.

Cornerback Mackensie Alexander (knee) was first added to the injury report on Thursday as a limited participant. Alexander also is listed as questionable.

Wide receiver Brandon Zylstra was added to the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable.

Wide receiver Chad Beebe (hamstring) and tight end David Morgan (knee) both did not practice this week and have been ruled out.

Linebacker Ben Gedeon (concussion) and wide receiver Adam Thielen (calf) were both limited participants on Wednesday, and Thursday and are likely to play.

Guard Mike Remmers (low back), guard Tom Compton (knee), linebacker Eric Kendricks (chest) were all full participants this week.

It's good to see they are stretching the field finally.  Zimmer has his ways of putting the choke hold in the 2nd half, we'll see..

Our defense did their job and held Patriots to 24 points despite the fact that they seemed to gash us for at least 8 yards on every run and 15 yards on every catch.  (I don't know how Zimm's defense does that.)

But our offense is the issue.  I don't know if the transition from Shurmur to DeFilippo isn't clicking yet.  Why can't he design plays to fool defenses?  They say we should run more, but if the offensive line can't open and holes.  How's that goona work?  We got two great receivers, two very good running backs, and a good quarterback and a good tight end.  I hope there is money for next year to rebuild the offensive line.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on December 03, 2018, 08:36:50 AM
Gotta agree, Steve-O, in fact I thought the defense did a great job until # 29 went out & we had to put our kick returner & a rookie back there. That's when they had the 2 quick TD's. The O line did a decent job in the first half IMO but after they went up a couple scores & we abandoned the run, they were in Cousin's face on just about every play. I don't recall :scratch: how many sacks they had, it didn't seem like it was very many but they were pressuring him everytime he dropped back. :pouty:

I still think Kevin Stefanski who had been our QB Coach for quite a few years should have been promoted to OC.  That's what Fillipino did up until a couple of years ago.  He's no mastermind OC at all.  The Vikes wouldn't let Stefanski interview for another job last year so he had to stay here.  What a slap in the face that must be to him.  The players know him and like him.  Also George Edwards is the DC but you'd never know it.  The players know him and respect him too.  HE should be allowed to do his job and call the plays not Zim.  Zim is not as good as he thinks he is.  SO two qualified people that are on the payroll could maybe turn this whole train wreck around.  Zim obviously can't handle all of the things a Head Coach needs to do. Let the guys do their jobs.

Terrible game.  I can't even look at Cousins anymore.  Disgusting QB.  Looked scared to death out there.  He is partly why the line is so bad.  We kicked ass last year with a worse QB and a worse OL.  We are stuck with him for 2 more years.  Things have gone haywire in the locker room since Zim got here.  I think he needs to take a look at himself.  Funny as heck that Carlson is doing so well now that he got out of Zim land.

I'd really like the inside story on why things aren't clicking for the offense.  Based on the product I see on the field, I'm not qualified to say if it is the players not executing or the coaches putting the players in the wrong spot to be successful.

You see teams make scores on the goal line all the time - either bull rush the pile forward, or use some other play fake or deception to get guys wide open in the end zone.  Why can't we seem to do either?

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — When the Minnesota Vikings went all-in on Kirk Cousins as their long-sought franchise player last spring, they paired him with a new offensive coordinator considered to be part of the current wave of up-and-coming quarterback developers and innovative play-callers putting a strong imprint on the NFL.

The partnership with John DeFilippo that had so much potential lasted nine months.

Cousins and his Vikings teammates were doused this week with the cold shower of coach Mike Zimmer's decision to fire DeFilippo after just 13 regular-season games, the latest dose of the reality of this cutthroat league as well as a sobering reminder that their lagging performance ultimately cost him the job.


"It's the hard part of this business, and it was tough news," Cousins said before practice on Wednesday. "I hate seeing it happen."

Pro football's furnace of fan-driven angst over a struggling offense had been directed over the past month toward DeFilippo and his in-game decision-making, with Zimmer's public second-guessing of the play-calling only adding to the heat.

Cousins, in the first season of his fully guaranteed, three-year, $84 million contract, joined DeFilippo over the past month on the firing line.

The Vikings (6-6-1) have lost three of their past four games, with Cousins posting three of his five lowest passer ratings in those games, all on the road against postseason-bound teams.

"One of the things I did communicate to coach Flip yesterday was, 'I believe with the ball in my hand, had I played at my fullest potential play-in and play-out, we're probably not having this conversation right now,'" Cousins said.

"That's something I take personally and is certainly tough for me and keeps you up at night. But at the same time, all you can do now is go forward."

Cousins complimented DeFilippo for his "very classy and very gracious" conversation with him on Tuesday after the dismissal.

"I have a lot of respect for him as a coach. I have a lot of respect for him as a person. And I believe that his best days in this league are ahead of him," Cousins said. "I think he's a very good coach, and I think he'll be a coordinator again. I think he's head coach material, as well."

Zimmer made the move about 12 hours after Minnesota's 21-7 loss at Seattle on Monday, when the offense didn't score until 70 seconds remained in the game.

With the Vikings still, somehow, in control of the second wild-card spot in the top-heavy NFC, Zimmer decided to fire DeFilippo and make quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski the offensive coordinator for the remainder of the season in a last-ditch attempt to create a spark for a sputtering unit.


"It may work. It may not work. You get feelings and you trust your gut," Zimmer said. "It's no different than, it's fourth-and-8, you've got to call the blitz, you meet it head on, and you go. Now are we going to talk about Miami? Or are we going to keep talking about this?"

Ah, yes, the Dolphins (7-6), who are due in Minnesota on Sunday afternoon. They're tied for third in the NFL with 25 takeaways, a dangerous trend for Cousins and his 16 turnovers that are tied with New York Jets rookie Sam Darnold for the most in the league.

"I'd be the first one to say if I had played at a higher level, we're probably not talking about the things we're talking about," Cousins said.

At least he manned up & admitted that his play has been a big part of it. Kind of a tough deal knowin your play was a big part of someone losing their job. It's the nature of the beast though & I'm pretty sure De Filippo won't be out of work that long. The O line has been awfully shaky the last 3-4 games too, I think. See how the new OC handles it, hope he figures out a way to get everybody settled down & in the flow to start the game.

Now I am excited to watch the next game.  I really lost some Vikings fire after that Seattle mess.  I hope Stefanski does great.  He has coached here for 12 years I think.  He deserves this shot and the guys know him and like him.

  Week 17 Game preview: Bears vs. Vikings

The regular season finale has plenty of story lines and isn’t the end of the season story for the Bears

For the first time since I took over writing these game previews a couple of years ago, I don’t have to write a short eulogy on the season and include phrases like ‘last Bears game until September’ or ‘enjoy it because a long off season will start Monday.’

That’s right, there will be a postseason run to talk about. The stress level will be higher and there will be no guarantee of a next week but this will be fun.

But there is still the matter of Sunday’s game to talk about. The Vikings are playing for their own playoff life and the Bears have seeding implications at play.

There’s a lot of will-they, won’t-they talk surrounding the Bears are far as how hard the team will play or how much the starters will play. It’s tough to say but it sounds like there’s a good chance that we’ll see the starters for at least a half of the game.

Minnesota Vikings

SB Nation site: Daily Norseman

Game day/time/TV: Sunday, 3:25 p.m. CT, FOX

Record: 8-6-1

Last week: 27-9 win over Detroit

Bears all-time record against: 53-60-2 (including postseason)

Historical match ups: The last time the Bears won in Minnesota, it was also the last game of the season.

Back in Week 17 of 2011, Josh McCown started for the injured Jay Cutler and the ineffective Caleb Hanie. Just weeks after patrolling the sideline of a high school as a coach, he led the Bears from down 10-0 early to hit Roy Williams for a touchdown.

A Charles Tillman pick six and a Robbie Gould field goal were all the Bears needed to eek out a 17-13 win.

Last meeting: Just over a month ago, on Sunday Night Football, fans were talking about the Bears finally having their shot at a winning football team and a shot to establish themselves as a true contending playoff team. They beat the Vikings 25-20, but it wasn’t even that close.

The Vikings scored twice after the Bears were already up 22-6 to get it close.

Offense: Minnesota enters Week 17 with 16th ranked offense in terms of points and 17th in terms of yards.

Their passing offense ranks 10th in passing yards and fifth in attempts, led by Kirk Cousins (70.7 pct. cmp./4,166 yds./29 TD/10 INT) throwing to dangerous weapons like Adam Thielen (110 rec./1,335 yds./9 TD), Stefon Diggs (94/974/8) and Aldrick Robinson (17/231/5).

They account for 22 of Cousins’ 29 TD passes, the others belong to TE Kyle Rudolph (60/615/4), WR Laquon Treadwell (34/295/1) and RB Dalvin Cook (36/284/2).

Speaking of Cook, he is arguably their best offensive weapon, but certainly their most versatile. The Vikings rank 30th in rushing yards, 27th in rushing TDs and 26th in attempts, but Cook is an effective back when he’s healthy.

His numbers (122 att./576 yds./2 TD) work out to 4.7 yards per carry and his 5.4 yards per touch are a testament to his versatile game.

He actually is second on the team in rushing to Latavius Murray (138/560/6) but that’s mostly due to missing five games.

Defense: The Vikings defense is fierce, every bit as good as the Bears. They come in ranked seventh in points allowed and third in yards allowed.

They rank third in pass yards allowed, first in touchdown passes allowed but are 16th in interceptions.

Their rushing defense ranks 11th in yards allowed and sixth in touchdowns allowed.

Overall they rank 15th in terms of turnovers with 20, so average, which is surprising with the playmakers and their unit ranks overall.

Up front they boast Danielle Hunter (14.5 sacks/21 TFL/19 QBH), Everson Griffin (5.5 sk./5 TFL/13 QBH), Sheldon RIchardson (4.5 sk./6 TFL/16 QBH) and their version of Eddie Goldman in Linval Joseph (1 sk/4 TFL/3QBH/1 FF).

Their linebackers are good too with Anthony Barr (3 sk./2 PD/1 FF/8 TFL) and Eric Kendricks (108 tkl/3 TFL/2 INT/7 PD/1 FF) making plays all over the place.

The secondary is no slouch either with S Harrison Smith (3 INT/6 PD/1 FF/8 TFL), Trae Waynes (8 PD/1 INT), Xavier Rhodes (7 PD/1 INT), Mackensie Alexander (9 PD/4 sk./7 TFL) and Anthony Harris (3 INT/6 PD) all making plays.

They have 16 players with at least half a sack, a testament to the amount of different looks and blitzes they like to throw at their opponents.

Injury report: The Vikings listed eight players on their Wednesday injury report:

Full participation: LB Anthony Barr (shoulder), TE David Morgan (knee)

Limited: FB C.J. Ham (elbow), DT Linval Joseph (knee), LB Eric Kendricks (hamstring), G Mike Remmers (low back), CB Xavier Rhodes (groin), Marcus Sherels (foot)

Key match ups: The front seven against Mitch Trubisky looms large here, will Trubisky be able to recognize where the pressure will come from while keeping his eyes downfield and find where the open receiver is?

Picking apart the tough secondary of the Vikings will be difficult, Trubisky struggled during the first meeting, throwing two picks and leading the offense to just one touchdown. What did he learn from that game?

On defense, I think the match up is the Bears’ front four getting pressure on Kirk Cousins is the biggest key. Sure, I think that shutting down Dalvin Cook is important because he has the speed and the skillset to burn the defense, but Cousins makes the whole thing work.

Cousins’ struggles against winning teams and big moments is well documented. If the Bears can rattle him, like they did in the first game, then he should turn the ball over.

What to watch for: Playoff seeding; will the Bears truly go all out to keep a division rival out of the postseason or will they simply just do enough to put up a fight in the first half and then cruise in the second?

There are some really intriguing things at play.

Key stats: Cousins’ pass attempts have dropped a bit since the team fired John DeFilippo, going from 37.4 attempts per game to 24.5

The Vikings have also gotten Murray and Cook a combined 29.5 rushing attempts per game since changing coordinators.

The Vikings are 0-4-1 when they lose the turnover margin, they’ve only won the turn over margin four times

Kirk Cousins is number two in the NFL with three pick sixes thrown, just one behind Josh Rosen

Cousins is also tied for fourth with nine fumbles this year

The pick: Vikings 28, Bears 23 - Ultimately, I don’t think many Bears starters will finish this game and I think the Vikings pull it out in the end to make the playoffs. To see my analysis of the game against the spread and the total, click here to read my piece on Sports Bet Collective.

What do you think the Bears need to do to win Sunday? :scratch: Will they try? :confused:

Will never happen but if I had to pick 2 people to go it would be Zimmer and Cousins.  Zim is a great D coach but head coach is over his head.  Who ever hired De filipi should go too.  Cousins is way over his head too.  Not QB material.

My opinion. The special teams coach. He has ruin more place kickers. Then it needs a huge revamp of the O- line. O coordinator should stay. No other changes needed. Super bowl or bust next year.

With rooster chasing all but over with and no purple to watch,  it's time to fish...

Gotta look at last week and the weekend as a whole here. The purple were shaky all year as they showed early on in their loss to Buffalo. I mentioned it way back when I said their season would hinge on this game. Prophetic bastard, ain't I?  :sleazy:

Annaway, water over the dam. Lotsa good MN sports to follow. Gopher football munched Georgia Tech. While I'm not a fan of the rah-rah stuff that Fleck does, I can't argue with success either. Gopher men's BB got Eric Curry back on the floor today. Big brace on his knee. Even though they played Mt. St. Mary's, he looked better than I expected, 4 pts. & 6 boards. They may surprise, they may disappoint but they have talent and are deeper than last year. They were a helluva a lot more fun to watch than the Vikes today. The Gopher women's BB might be the team to watch tho. Ranked #12. 12-0 and haven't played all schlubs either. They pounded Bucky 74-56 Friday nite to start the B1G season. Lindsay Whalen has them playing D and for someone who's never coached you'd never know it. Was a fan back when Whalen played for the Gophers, when she played for the Lynx, and still am. Livestream most of the games that aren't on network TV and that's a lot of them. Gopher hockey split. Still trying to develop an identity. I hope Motzco kicks some @sses after their lackluster performance against Ferris St. & losing at home Saturday nite. Still too much of Donnie & Guentzel's influence. 14 pretty passes, no shots on goal to show for it, then let 'em go down the ice & score on ya. Shoot the damn puck and hit the bastards on defense rather than watching them skate by!  :rotflmao:

Good article Rebs.  Hit the nail right on the head.  Keenum was a fighter and got the job done.  Cousins is a pansy and can't handle things when they get tough...
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Rebel SS on December 31, 2018, 12:17:44 PM
I think you and I agreed about that earlier this season...and I couldn't understand them dumping Keenum, he just needed seasoning, IMO. My take was he (Cousins) looked "scared" out there. I don't think he's a hardcore type enough (like a Rothlisberger) to get the job done. Kinda reminds me of a sophomore first time starting Qback in HS......and I agree with Gunner, their De sucks! All year, IMO. I never saw any really good Qback sacks handed out by them...........but, there were a lot of other probs too. They just never really "jelled"all season long. I haveta say it...typical ViQueens!  :rolleyes:
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on December 31, 2018, 12:31:06 PM
I thought the D did pretty good.  I think they had the most sacks of any team or maybe second.  They were on the field a lot and looking at Cousins as the QB knowing he isn't going to finish the game.  That has to be disheartening.  Cousins record is something like 4 wins and 26 losses to teams with above 50/50 record.  That is pathetic.

 Right you are, 4-25 for his career against teams with winning records. :bonk: Keenum was so much more mobile than Cousins along with Remers & Compton pretty much stinkin it up all season in front of him. If they don't try to upgrade the line through the draft & free agency, that young Bears D is going to eat Cousins alive.

I like Stefanski but the way they treated him I don't think he will stay here.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on January 04, 2019, 01:59:34 PM
Hard to say.

There are only 32 Offensive Coordinator jobs in the NFL and only 32 Head Coaching jobs.

I'd think a wise man could swallow his pride and accept the one that is the best career fit for him.

How many head coaches have the Browns sent through their revolving door? 

Sure, Stefanski is interviewing for a head coaching job - and I hope he gets it that's what he wants.  But on the other hand, if he isn't ready for all that and the Browns fire him after a couple of years, is he better off?  Maybe, it depends on his next job, I guess.

Is DeFilippo better off by going from being a quarterback's coach to Offensive Coordinator, but getting fired before the season is done?  It depends on his next job.

I'll expose my homerism here...  I wish Stefanski the best, whether its here or elsewhere.  I don't give a rat's patootie what happens to DeFillippo.  And I hope the Vikings get their offense coaching squared away to the point where the team is living up to their full potential.

I gotta believe it is Zim's idea.  I think Zim is looking for his football soul mate after Tony Sparano died.  Its not like Spielman is going to hire another OC right after he just hired one.

I also heard - if you believe what they say on the radio - that Stephanski and the Kubiaks go way back, so you might not have to worry about these guys not being on the same page.

Title: WR Thielen won't hold out
Post by: Lee Borgersen on February 20, 2019, 02:18:29 PM
:reporter; Agent: Vikings WR Thielen won't hold out for contract :Clap:

By Field Level Media Today at 1:16 p.m.

 :coffee: ....
 Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen walks to the sidelines during the second quarter of the NFL Pro Bowl football game at Camping World Stadium Jan. 19. Reinhold Matay / USA TODAY Sports
Wide receiver Adam Thielen's $5.85 million salary for 2019 puts him among the lowest-paid No. 1 receivers on any team.

And with two years left on the four-year, $19.25 million contract he signed in 2017, the Minnesota Vikings might consider trying to extend the contract of the productive 28-year-old wideout. Or they could wait.


His agent, Blake Baratz, told SKOR North radio in the Twin Cities on Tuesday that Thielen will not hold out to force the Vikings to the negotiating table.

"Adam's not that type of person," Baratz said. "I would never condone a player to hold out or be disruptive if it wasn't for a very valid reason, and (what's not) a valid reason, to me, is both sides working in good faith to come to a conclusion that makes sense for everybody."

The Vikings signed Thielen, who played collegiately at Minnesota State, as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He has played in all 80 games (46 starts) over five seasons and has caught 293 passes for 3,897 yards and 19 touchdowns.

In 2018, he had career highs in receptions (113), yards (1,373) and TDs (nine). The Detroit Lakes, Minn., native is a two-time Pro Bowl selection.

"This team has a lot of really good things in place for it, and I know they want to take care of Adam and I know they want Adam there and I know they want to reward Adam," Baratz said.

"What exactly that looks like and when that happens, I can't speak to yet, but I'm cautiously optimistic that everyone will come around and do the right thing.

"There's not -- no one's being greedy. Everyone understands the situation and it's really in their court. He has a couple of years left on his deal, but he's earned a significant pay raise. Not to mention what he's done on the field, he might be one of the best people in the entire National Football League and represents the city and the organization and state and frankly, the entire region unbelievably." :Clap:

It certainly is an interesting move.

Everyone was worried about Kubiak taking Stafanski's job away from him.  What if the real move was to have Kubiak on staff to take Zimmer's job, should the team under-perform for Zim again.

Zim's one year extension really doesn't constitute much extra job security.  AND Spielman and the Wilf's will have a year or two to evaluate Kubiak in-house.

Hard to pay other players when your quarterback makes $84 Mil - guaranteed.

It looks like the formula for winning in the NFL is to...

A) Have Tom Brady
A1) Tank.
B) Draft a franchise rookie QB you can pay (relative) peanuts to.
C) Get good at all the other positions
D) Avoid "head case" players who sit out, demand trades, and only return pennies on the dollar when you finally have to dump them.

Totally agree on Cousins, Steve-O, he didn't come close to playing up to that contract. :thumbs: :pouty: However there are 8 others on the team making >$ 10 mil/per & 6 of those are on Zimm's defense.  :crazy: I think they had a down year as well & part of that was because they were on the field way too much. :sad:

Totally agree on Cousins, Steve-O, he didn't come close to playing up to that contract.

Still, I think it was a decent, high priced gamble that is mitigated by Cousins' relatively short contract duration.  It is hard to know how much of Cousins' deficiencies were of his own doing, weak offensive line/running game play, or ineffective offensive coordinator leadership.
Still, if Cousins/Stefanski/Kubiak can work together to make Cousins more successful, if Spielman can somehow shore up the offensive line, and if Zim can coach up replacements for the defenders he is losing, I like our chances...

But its too bad 'cause I like da' Bears chances even better than ours.   :blues brothers:

* It will also be interesting to see how DeFilippo does for the Jaguars next season.

  • Cousins can be second guessed because he really isn't any more effective for us than he was for Washington; good numbers, but few wins.
  • Zim can be second guessed because he can't get the offensive coordinator to be on the same page as him.*
  • Spielman can be second guessed because he could have rolled with Keenum one more year and waited for someone like Nick Fowls or someone else to become available this year.
Still, if Cousins/Stefanski/Kubiak can work together to make Cousins more successful, if Spielman can somehow shore up the offensive line, and if Zim can coach up replacements for the defenders he is losing, I like our chances...

   Packers bolster defense with edge rusher Za'Darius Smith, safety Adrian Amos

Figured I'd post dis on da Vikes thread just ta piss off da Viking fans! :rotflmao:


GREEN BAY – Waiting until the first wave of free agency rolled through the NFL on Monday, Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst jumped in with both feet, signing a pair of defensive starters Tuesday.

Baltimore edge rusher Za’Darius Smith and Chicago safety Adrian Amos agreed to terms on contracts with the Packers on Tuesday morning.

Both signings were reported first by NFL Network and the PackersNews.com confirmed Amos’ signing.

The Packers are counting on Smith to start at outside linebacker in either Clay Matthews' or Nick Perry’s spot. Matthews is an unrestricted free agent and the Packers are expected to release Perry later in the week.

Smith, 26, bounced back from a pair of unremarkable seasons to finish with 8˝ sacks for the Ravens in a contract year. The 2015 fourth-round selection had 5˝ sacks his rookie year but just 4˝ the next two.

In 2018, he had a breakout season, leading the Ravens in sacks, quarterback hits (25, including sacks) and finishing second in tackles for loss (10). He finished tied for sixth in tackles.

The Packers need the 6-4, 274-pound Smith to be more than just a pass rusher, although hitting quarterbacks will be his No. 1 duty. At the combine four years ago, he ran an impressive 40-yard dash in 4.83 seconds and benched 225 pounds 23 times.

Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine will have to find out whether Smith can help him at outside linebacker or simply as an edge rusher in nickel situations. Smith was a defensive end in college at Kentucky.

The signing means that Gutekunst doesn’t necessarily have to draft an edge rusher with the No. 12 pick in the 2019 draft. It’s very possible there will be a pass rusher available at that pick and Gutekunst probably wouldn’t pass on him, but he has the option of taking the best player available and waiting until later to take another pass rusher.

In Amos, the Packers are getting a mid-level starter who started all 16 games last year and had 73 tackles, a sack and two interceptions. He also had nine pass break-ups and a forced fumble.

At the combine in 2015, the 6-foot, 218-pound Amos ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds and registered a 35 1/2 -inch vertical leap.

Amos, a fifth-round pick, played second fiddle to safety Eddie Jackson on the Bears’ outstanding defense. Jackson made more big plays than Amos, who in four years has just three interceptions.

The Packers will expect him to start, but they are still going to have to make another move at the position because they do not have an established ballhawk in the deep middle. It’s possible they’ll move cornerback Josh Jackson to safety, but he would need a lot of training.

It’s unclear whether the Packers have submitted a restricted free agent tender on safety Kentrell Brice, who has battled ankle injuries the last two seasons. Brice would make $2.025 million if the tender is made and so with this signing it’s possible the Packers will take a pass.

Josh Jones, a second-round pick in 2017, remains an option at safety, too. Pettine also could keep cornerback Tramon Williams at safety after the veteran bailed him out last year when injuries struck the position.

... and waited for someone like Nick Foles or someone else to become available this year.

The cost of quarterbacking is going up...  Nick got $88 Mil with incentives going to $102 Mil over 4 years with $50 Mil guaranteed to play for the Jags.

...And Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan will both make more than Foles and Cousins to resign with their teams.

I seen 1 report that it wasn't until Barr heard that the NYJ planned to use him as an edge rusher that he changed his mind. Another said him leavin was just a ploy to get a better deal with the Vikings & that is why none of the details of his deal with them were ever released. :confused: Think they used up most, if not all, of their cap space to sign him so it'll be interesting to see how they go about the OL issues.

AND the fact that he is a good interview makes me like him even better.  Intelligent fellow.  On the other hand Treadwell can't hardly read and write, or talk with much correct grammar.  That worries me.  And it should worry him too.  Get back to school Laquon. 
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on March 13, 2019, 01:55:52 PM
On the other hand Treadwell ...

I posted Cordarelle Patterson's receiving stats over on the Bears' thread.  Cordarelle was no world beater, but compared to Laquon...

Treadwell:

2016, Vikings, 1 catch, 15 yards, catch percentage 33.3%
2017, Vikings, 20 catch, 200 yards, catch percentage 51.7%
2018, Vikings, 35 catch, 302 yards, catch percentage 66.0%

The only difference between Treadwell and Patterson, is that Treadwell's numbers are trending up.

That and Treadwell is cheap.  Laquon is still on his rookie deal and Patterson just signed for $10 Mil wit' 'da Bears.   :blues brothers:  Good luck.

I never heard any #'s on the NYJ's offer, I see now they're reporting it was for $14-$15/ per. His new deal with the Vikes could be worth $77.5 mil after incentives. Might be a longer deal now or more guaranteed too. Havta agree on Murray. :sad:

I hadn't heard that but I'm not real surprised as I'm not sure they really wanted them back. Especially with the amount of $'s it was going to take to sign 'em. Reiff & Elflein were by far the best on the OL last season anyway. Not sure :scratch: they can get enough help, as you need some depth too, in the draft & with FA's, hope so or 8-7-1 might look good to us next season. :pouty: :thumbs:

Abdullah started last season on Detroit's team and played in 3 games.  He had 1 rush for 1 yard and 3 catches for 38 yards.

Vikes picked him up and he played in 7 games.  He had 1 catch for 10 yards.

He also returned 14 punts total for both teams last year.

He should get a chance to play more for the Vikes now that Latavius Murray has moved on.

But he - or Cook - won't have a chance unless Spielman figures out how to rebuild the O line through the draft and what is left of their salary cap money.

     :reporter;.... Adam Thielen agrees to four-year extension :happy1:

 :coffee: ....
Vikings receiver Adam Thielen has agreed to a four-year extension, Thielen’s agent, Blake Baratz, posted on social media Friday. The deal is worth $64 million with a max of $74 million.

 :popcorn: ....
Thielen will get $35 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
Thielen was entering the third season of a four-year, $19.246 million base deal, and Baratz said in February he was confident of getting an extension worked out with the Vikings for Thielen.
Thielen, 28, has 293 receptions for 3,897 yards and 19 touchdowns in his five seasons. He topped the 1,000-yard mark each of the past two seasons and earned Pro Bowl honors both years.
Thielen caught 113 passes for 1,373 yards and nine touchdowns last season in playing all 16 games.

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings selected North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury with the 18th overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night, using their first-rounder on an offensive lineman for the first time in seven years.
   
With the front five again their position of greatest need , the Vikings could hardly have had the board fall to them any better. Alabama tackle Jonah Williams, who could wind up as a guard in the NFL, was the first blocker off the board at No. 11 to Cincinnati. Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom went to Atlanta at No. 14.
   
Then the Vikings had their pick of the rest, with Florida tackle Jawaan Taylor, Oklahoma tackle Cody Ford and Washington State tackle Andre Dillard all available.
   
With the 6-foot-3, 306-pound Bradbury, the Vikings got a mobile anchor and a natural fit with the zone-blocking scheme they'll be favoring to try to generate more of a running game and keep the pressure off quarterback Kirk Cousins. Pat Elflein, who has been the starting center since being Minnesota's third-round draft pick in 2017, becomes a strong candidate to move to guard, his primary college position.
   
The Vikings did not go with another cornerback. General manager Rick Spielman even joked this week at his pre-draft news conference that his wife told him not to come home if the Vikings were to use that precious first-rounder on another player at the head coach's favorite position, where Mike Zimmer has helped develop several draft picks into standouts over the last five seasons.
   
Last year, the Vikings passed on a deep class of interior offensive linemen to take cornerback Mike Hughes out of Central Florida with the 30th overall pick. Hughes showed plenty of promise , returning an interception for a touchdown in his NFL debut, but he tore the ACL in his left knee six games into his rookie season.
   
With Hughes coming off his injury, Holton Hill suspended for the first four games this year and Trae Waynes entering the final season of his contract, cornerback wouldn't have been an indulgent selection. But the need up front, after a so-so first season under Cousins, was too glaring to ignore.
   
The only other time in the 13 drafts the Vikings have had with Spielman that they made an offensive lineman their first pick was 2012, when tackle Matt Kalil went to them at No. 4 overall. He made the Pro Bowl as a rookie, but his five-year tenure with the team was mixed at best. That was the first draft with Spielman as the final decision-maker. When he was vice president of player personnel before his promotion, Spielman shared authority with the head coach.
   
The Vikings have only used a first-round selection on an offensive lineman three times in the past 30 years: Kalil, Bryant McKinnie (2002) and Todd Steussie (1994). They were each picked for at least one Pro Bowl. Two of the three others taken in the first round in Vikings history, Randall McDaniel (1988) and Ron Yary (1968), are Pro Football Hall of Fame members.

Yeah, I wasn't aware that he played mostly guard in college either LPS. Thought he did such a good job at center as a rookie that it was his normal position, then he got hurt last season. :sad:

Rounds 2 & 3 tonight starting at 6.  They go faster now than they did last night.  SO Chicago didn't have a pick last night due to the trade to get Mack.  Saturday it gets started at 11 am I believe.  We pick at 50 but you never know when a deal will be made to move up some.  I will keep an eye on it as long as the wife allows it.  LOL  She is a huge Vikes fan like me so she is pretty good about it.

I see where they got a tackle, guard, & a couple WR's later on. Read where they thought the guard could help right away but the tackle was expected to need a little work. Some depth was needed at WR :happy1: & maybe convince Treadwell that he needs to hold on to the freakin ball. :pouty:

I probably already said this but I am excited about the picks this year.  Even our last picks are pretty smart guys that can maybe surprise us as back ups.  I like Irv as a TE too.  I think he will add a new dimension.  AND the RB Mattison I guess is a tough guy to tackle.  That all along with Bradbury is all positive for me.  I'm thinking about 10 wins and that could win the division.  Remember Chicago now has Patterson.  Man I liked him although he wasn't the brightest bulb on the tree I guess.  He could hurt us.

Duluth, MN - A 7 year old boy was at the center of a court room drama yesterday when he challenged the court’s ruling of who should have custody of him.
The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents, and was initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.
The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beats him more than his parents, and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he should live with his grandparents, the boy cried and then stated they beat him also.
After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life for them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.
After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Minnesota Vikings, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone. #HookLineAndSinker

Well I hope I'm right.  The question mark will be our offensive line.  Some improvement with the draft and we will see if they can make a difference this season.  We have one of the best defenses in the NFL plus the best two recievers in the NFL as well.  I'll give the bears credit for a great season last year though.  Cousins had his first year with the Vikings and it's hard to step in and succeed as much as the fans would have wanted until he gets used to the offense.  Still he had great numbers.  good luck.

Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Rebel SS on August 03, 2019, 12:43:28 PM
Time to get it together, guys..............



EAGAN — Mike Zimmer looked on with exasperation during Wednesday’s Minnesota Vikings practice as the offense did pretty much whatever it wanted against his vaunted defense.

Whether it was because Kyle Rudolph tip-toed a touchdown reception in the back of the end zone or Adam Thielen caught one wide open, Zimmer was none too pleased with the overall effort of the D.

Less than a week into full practices it has become an alarming trend for Zimmer and instead of letting it fester, he took to the podium after Thursday’s walkthrough to voice his discontent.


“We need to play a lot better,” the Vikings’ head coach said. “I feel like the offense has got a lot of grit and fight, and I haven’t seen much out of the defense yet. That’s my major concern at this point.”

Maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the offense has operated with more attention to detail. There are a lot of moving parts on that side of the ball, especially with offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski and adviser Gary Kubiak teaching a new scheme. For the offense, there’s no time for messing around with so much to learn and Week 1 a little more than a month away.

The defense, on the other hand, has been roughly the same thing for the past six years. Add in the fact that Minnesota finished in the Top 5 of total yards allowed for three straight years and switching it to autopilot from time to time seems understandable.

“As I’ve told a few of them, they’ve been together for quite a while now, and they think they’re pretty good, so maybe they just go out and practice and there’s no intensity level,” Zimmer said.

“They aren’t making mistakes because they’ve been in the same defense for six years now; it’s just a little bit of, maybe, complacency, like, ‘Hey. We are in the Top 5 in defense every year.’ ”

In the interest of fairness, the defense isn’t allowed to tackle during training camp, meaning the offense probably has at least a couple of extra seconds to work with on any given play.

There’s also the fact competition is scarce with most of the starters know exactly where they stand, whether it’s Linval Joseph at nose tackle, Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter at defensive end, Eric Kendricks or Anthony Barr at linebacker, or Harrison Smith, Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes in the secondary.

“I just think they need to get more competitive,” he said. “We need to come out here and compete every day. In all the situations, the offense has won every time, so if they want to be great on defense, they’ve got to play with a chip on their shoulder. I haven’t really seen that yet.”

His players took the comments to heart, performing much better during Thursday’s practice, and owning their previous mishaps afterward.

“If he says we’ve got to step it up, we’ve got to step it up,” Rhodes said. “There were some things we needed to correct. We had some errors in some situations and periods of the practice.”


“He knows what it looks like when it’s right,” Smith added. “I think he was talking about a mentality and I think we’re going to get that right.”

Zimmer wants a Super Bowl win bad.  He said to a reporter that some coach will win a super bowl here and I want that coach to be me.  He has the staff now, coaches now, and better players now.  Can't afford to lose the close games we lost the last couple of years. good luck.

Minnesota Vikings - Biggest Flaws :doah:



 
 :coffee: ......
The roster in Minnesota is one of the most complete in the league, especially on defense. Going into the draft, the team’s biggest weakness was offensive line, particularly center, but the Vikings fixed that by drafting top center Garrett Bradbury in the first round. It’s time for Minnesota to bring it all together, and that requires Kirk Cousins playing much better against great teams like "Da Bears" :blues brothers: :bow: and in prime time than he’s done throughout his :mad1: career.

Brilliant move!  Kaare Vedvik can push place kicker Bailey AND punter Wile in practice, but will probably put Wile out of a job because Vedvik also is a holder.

But watch out next year.  This is a lot of reckless speculation, but it Vedvik hits longer fields goals in practice than Bailey, and maybe Zim uses Vedvik for long ones during the season and Vedvik hits them, why wouldn't you cut Bailey next year and find a new holder.  Or maybe Bailey figures things out and stops missing fields goals and everyone is happy.

Yes, good luck.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Reinhard on August 13, 2019, 05:27:00 PM
I think giving up a 5th round draft pick means Bailey is gone.  They must of done a lot of research on this guy to do this.  We will see.  good luck.

Yeah, and Zim isn't taking the pressure off.

It looks like Wile is the next odd man out and Vedvik will get the punting job.  And it is often the punter who holds for place kicks, but the Vikes are putting receiver Chad Beebe in that role, which leaves Vedvik available to kick field goals if Bailey wilts.  Good luck.

Ok thanks for trying.  What a great story.  They said how he was so good at getting his hand just right so when he slapped guys asses that it stung and that is funny as heck.  I remember exactly where I was at when Mark Rosen on KFAN who had the exclusive, said well Brett Favre just landed in MN in Ziggys jet.  I wasn't even that big on it but when Rosen said that I had electric impulses going through me like goose bumps.  I had to stop what I was doing and think about it.  What a great year of fun football.  Should have gone all of the way too.  He has never looked back at that Saints game on tape.  I would love to hang with him for a few days and drink beer and shoot critters on our UTV's.

Mike Tirico had an interesting idea he shared on the radio this morning.

Two preseason games is enough to prepare the teams with game speed action.

For the other two weeks...

Since teams are doing more and more organized scrimmages with other teams - formalize the process.  Host one three day scrimmage at one city, then your team travels to another city for the second week.  You have two days of closed practice and then you open up your home stadium to fans for the third day of organized practice.  Charge them $10 and let them buy all the overpriced beer and concessions they want.  Since it is practice, the QBs will be wearing red shirts and won't get hit, but at least you'll get to see them play/practice - unlike most preseason games where the started see little or no playing time.  Then, if you really want to practice at game speed, play a 30 minute real-time game using the backups to evaluate the back half of the roster.

On the above post regarding the couple getting murdered, I see that the son has been arrested in Mexico.  On the game this Saturday, the Vikings won again but it was won by the QB who I think could be a starter on most NFL teams.  Kyle Sloter.  The guy just gets the team going and makes great plays.  Love watching the guy. Ya he come's in late in the game but always has great numbers.  This kid is going to be a star in time.  Cousins sucked and so did Manion his no. 2.  good luck.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on August 25, 2019, 10:14:38 AM
I agree 100% RH.  Noone looked like they were even having fun with Cousins out there.  Mannion not any better.  BUT when Sloter gets on the field everyone's heads are up and they have fun.  That leads to points.  PLUS I have never heard a starting QB apologize for bad play during a preseason game like Cousins did.  Too bad Zimmer is so hard on Sloter.  Just like he treated Carlson the kicker last year who went on to kick 16 of 17 for Oakland after we fired him.  Maybe Zim needs to get his head out of his azz.

On a lighter note, anybody else hear the news outta the Redskins camp. :scratch: Their hotshot #1 pick from Ohio St. got beat out for the starting QB job by Case Keenum.

And we have the Redskins in Week 8!   :happy1:

The NFL is funny that way.  Guys like Matt Cassel, Brian Hoyer, and Jimmy Garoppolo get handed the starting jobs with big $$$ contracts just because they had a couple of good games playing for the Patriots.

I think coaches like Zimm don't like QBs like Keenum because they have too much gunslinger in them - despite demonstrating that they can win games in the NFL.  That is also the reason I think Sloter will get cut.  Sloter might have some of the "It Factor," but Mannion's past experience will carry the day.

I think coaches and GMs are more comfortable going with the "consensus best" quarterback, i.e. Cousins.  That way if things don't work our, its easier to say, "It ain't our fault.  EVERYONE was wrong on this guy."

Actually, I get it that Teddy Bridgewater was a big gamble coming off his leg injury, but I'd take Teddy compared to what I've seen out of Cousins so far.  Cousins strikes me as Christian Ponder 2.0.  'I need to play better.  We won't win if I don't play better.  We'll look at the film and correct the mistakes."  It was a pre-season game for cripes sakes!

I do drink the Purple Kool Aid.  Love the Vikes and don't miss a game.  People don't call me during the game neither.  LOL  My wife is just as big of fan as I am and that makes it twice as much fun.  We both got actual jerseys last year.  A 19 and a 22 for each of us.  Cool to see which one we each pick for game.  BUT I am not looking forward to Cousins at all.  I feel like he is someone elses QB playing for us to help out.  I don't want him to help out.  He ain't going to get us there so let's work on a QB that we may have for a few years is Zim's ego doesn't ruin that too.  As in Sloter.

I think Zimmer has a contract through2020 and so has Spielman.  This season is a get it done or your out season for them.  They have good coaches and a great defense.  Last year to be fair to Cousins, it was his first with the team and the getting used to part, but he had great numbers even with the terrible O line.  So as my favorite president always says "We will see what happens".  Every year I am one of those "this is the year" couch potato experts.  good luck.

Yup, performs well, throws well....another typical Viking fudge up. Maybe they need to WAVE BYE to Zimmer!  That's exactly why I followed half of the team when they were traded years ago to Tampa Bay, and never looked back. They went on to the Superbowl and also twice to the playoffs, winning the championships....while the Vikings were ground into the dirt. I'm already watching the Bucs games....why is it, Minnesota can't have a professional sports team without some stoopid type of ball up???!!! :confused:

Maybe Zimm is more like Childress than we'd like to admit.

Case Keenuym and Kyle Sloter ARE TO Mike Zimmer

Ya that was a fun game to watch.  Only one game and on we go.  Only 10 passes thrown and that should say something about our offense and how it's changed.  That is the result of Kubiac comming on the team I  believe.  He is huge on the run attack.  Of course our defense was great as usual.  Next week is the cheeseheads on their turf.  Would love to see the Vikings destroy them.  good luck.

Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on September 10, 2019, 03:54:52 PM
That analysis may be a bit premature given a sample size of 1.

There were plenty of excuses for why Cousins didn't wow us with wins last year despite his gaudy numbers:  bad O-Line, O-Line coach died before the season started, bad O-coordinator hire, Dalvin Cook injuries.  Any QB looks better when there is an effective running game and everything I mentioned conspired against their running attack.

NFL experts also say you generally have to wait for Week 4 before you really know what you have.  There is still time to see if Cousins can translate good throwing statistics into wins.  3 more games to go until we know.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Reinhard on September 10, 2019, 04:41:18 PM
Power ranking in the NFL has the Vikings at no. 3 behind the Patriots and Kansas City.  So they think the Vikings are damn good this year.  To me it's all about injuries at this point.  Remember they hired Kobiak.  The guy is all about the run.  It showed this week.  Once you have a run game established the passing to recievers will be easier.  Last year they knew we had to pass so the defences keyd on that.  Every game.  I go by the last game of the season.  Any NFL team can beat any other NFL team.  Doesn't matter who you play.  This year the coaches know and the players have to get it in their head that each week you play as if it's the super bowl.  We are better this year.  good luck.

I read or heard that same thing said. I think what they are saying in that, is that they want Cousins to be "a part" of the offense and not have to rely on him to be "the offense"...basically be a game manager and not try to be "the guy". I agree for the most part with this. With all of the capable weapons we have on the offense, just distribute the ball around and make good sound decisions to put points on the board and then let the defense loose to run havoc on the opposing offense to keep their points off the board. I think this is what Zimmer has been wanting from this team since he came here.

Too many boo-boos made, too. Cousins was getting rushed more than he should have, but he also made some nitwit passes all thru the game. Depending on Cook so much, flip to leftside and do a sideline run was getting old. I'm surprised Cousins didn't pull a rookie QB move and throw cross-field for an interception, too... oh, and why do the VQueens have SOOOO much trouble finding someone who CAN kick?!  :rolleyes:

Fell apart in the first quarter but then started to wake up.  Cousins can make some big plays but when he screws up it's huge.  That last pass was the dumbest play I have seen in years.  Even if we won the game on that play it was still stupid.  1st down on the 8 yard line and we take a risky pass while our run game was doing great??  Could have run the ball a couple of times first.  Diggs dumb penalty with his taking off his helmet was also stupid.  Can't make these type of mistakes.  They cost games.  Didn't think the officiating was that great also though.  Oh well, it's one game with Oakland next at home.  One game Cousins is hated and the next he's a hero with a lot of fans.  My judgment will be made at the end of the season.  That's when it counts. Rogers is still the best QB playing though.  Cousins hangs on to the ball too long and should get out of the pocket more often when rushed.  good luck.

Naw, RH, I'll make my judgement now - and be happy to admit it if I'm wrong later, but...

As Denny Green :afro: might say about Kirk Cousins if he were still around:  He is who we thought he was.  :embarrassed:

Kirk's a .500 QB who doesn't win the big game.  I know 2019 is a small sample size, but sounds like our season so far, eh? :censored:

We had a couple high-risk QBs in house in Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater.  Last year Case stunk it up in Denver, but this year he is rated 6th in ESPN QBR Quarterback Rating.  (For the record, Kirk is 31st this year, just ahead of Ryan Fitzpatrick in Miami.  :puke: )  And now Teddy will get his shot for the Saints with Brees out. :happy1:

I'm just a stupid, ignorant fan, but I would have taken a risk on either of these two guys instead of paying top dollar for a historically average player.   :doah:

I wish you the best, Kirk, because the Vike's and their fans are goona need it - and then some.  :undecided:

That's fine Mike.  I'm just a couch expert fan.  Suffered through many seasons with expectations and then the roof caved in every time.  Who knows maybe this season will be the same.  But the reason I'm more optimistic is with the addition of Kobiak the run game is much better and it showed the last two games.  Too bad they didn't use it on the last drive with 1st down and 8 yards to go.  Dumbest play I have ever seen as a Viking game.  Or that I remember [senior citizen].  Another reason was the way the offense came back from a 3 touchdown deficit, something a few seasons ago would of been the end of the game.  I'm not a Cousins fan for reasons I have stated before.  I would have liked to keep Keenum.  He knew our system and could move out of the pocket if needed. What get's me is our kicking game.  Every kick [field goal and extra point] I have no confidence.  So from this point on it's about getting it right, and hopefully no large amounts of injured players.  Look at the Saints and Pittsburg for example.  If Cousins get's injured I have no confidence in our back up at all for example.  Where are our young prospects?  Sloter is gone.  Big mistake in my opinion. good luck.

Cousins should pro rate the games he has played and walk away.  He should get into marketing.  He is a bad to average QB that just happened to be in the market at just the right time.  He marketed himself for an unreal amount of money and found a sucker in Spielman.  He looks scared out there to me and being a QB doesn't seem to be his niche to me.

Been listening to P.A. and his analysis of the QB play.  I might have to back away from some of my rhetoric.

Specifically, although that last pass was inexcusable, Kirk is also doing many of the small things right.  He is still a work in progress - which is sad to say for a QB in his 8th year, but he is our work in progress.

Probably best to wait until after Week 4 to see what we got or who he is this season.  The Raiders should be a win - if the team doesn't look past them, and the Bears will be a touch road division test.  I guess it isn't any time to panic if you loose two road games to your toughest division rivals, but the best teams find a way to win some of those.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Reinhard on September 18, 2019, 11:42:13 AM
I like listening to PA also.  Don't think Cousins will make a stupid play like that again.  Will he make some bad throws, sure, but that one wasn't just a bad throw it was [like he said himself] something that should never happen.  Ya we should beat Oakland [should].  I don't think much of the Bears offense this year so far but their defense is good.  Zimmer and Spielman have their butts on the line also this season.  good luck.

The call didn't bother me.  Some work some don't.  BUT to throw it to a double covered man who you can't even see he is covered so good is idiotic.  A rookie I could see doing it but not an 8 year veteran.  It wasn't the last play of the game.  It was first down.  We had 3 more chances from the 8 yard line.  Until Cousins put his touch on it.

No, the play call was fine.  The problem is the pass rusher did NOT bite on the play-action run fake.  He just kept coming.  It was just good defense.  Throw the ball away and play another down; situational football.

After the game Cousins took full responsibility for his error.  It reminded me of a Christian Ponder post game press conference.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!

Ponder also was very intelligent, just not too football intelligent.  Wrong line of work for both of them.  But Kirk got the money.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Reinhard on September 19, 2019, 09:27:06 AM
We came back largely because of the run.  Mattison is averaging 5 yards per run.  CJ Ham could of made a few yards as well.  first down and on the 8 in my opinion should have been a run an a couple of downs.  You don't throw to a guy who was well covered like that.  But that's part of being a fan, you can praise when things are going well and complain about it when things go sour.  I'll be on the edge of my couch on Sunday.  Usually I don't start with a beer or cocktail at noon but after the 1st quarter last Sunday I told my wife I need a cocktail right now LOL.  good luck.

Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Reinhard on September 22, 2019, 04:46:47 PM
Carlson actually missed a field goal today, but he is doing great with the Raiders and I'm happy for him.  Even Zimmer said "We probably pulled the plug too soon on him".  I had to work today so I only got to watch the end of the 3rd quarter and all of the 4th.  They looked good today.  the run game was great and our defense played solid for the most part.  Cook is a awesome RB.  Mattison is looking good also.  Our O line playing well also.  So it's the Bears next Sunday at 3:30 pm at the Bears.  Good luck.

And I was saying Sunday I wished they wouldn't have signed this great talent away....he's back!!!  Yay!   :happy1: :dancinred:


Rochester native Marcus Sherels has been re-signed by the Minnesota Vikings. The 31-year-old Sherels is the franchise's all-time leading punt returning.


EAGAN — The Vikings on Tuesday brought back some familiar faces.

That includes Rochester John Marshall and University of Minnesota graduate Marcus Sherels.

Due to an ankle injury to Chad Beebe, the Vikings re-signed wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, who was waived on Aug. 31, and brought back punt returner Sherels, who played with them from 2010-18.


To make room on the roster, the Vikings placed Beebe on injured reserve and waived linebacker Devante Downs.

Beebe suffered an ankle injury in Sunday’s 34-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders, and a source said an MRI revealed he has torn ligaments. Surgery might not be needed, but Beebe must miss at least at least eight weeks while he is on injured reserve.

Sherels was not offered a contract by the Vikings when he became a free agent last spring. He signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, but was waived at the end of the preseason and an injury settlement was reached. Sherels is now healthy.

Beebe was the Vikings’ No. 3 receiver and their punt returner. Treadwell will provide depth at receiver and Sherels, who also plays cornerback, will return to the role in which he has excelled.

The 31-year-old Sherels is tied for first in Vikings franchise history with a 10.4 yard career punt-return average (208 for 2,171 yards) and holds the franchise record with five career punt return touchdowns. He ranked second in the league from 2012-15 with 1,230 punt return yards and was tied for second in that same four-year span with three punt return scores.

Treadwell, a first-round draft pick in 2016, underachieved in his first three seasons with the Vikings, making just just 56 catches for 517 yards in 31 games.

However, Treadwell knows the system and could fit right back in with the Vikings, who are short on receivers. The only other healthy receivers on the roster are starters Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, and rookie Bisi Johnson.

Treadwell is expected to practice Wednesday and be in uniform for Sunday’s game at Chicago. He is a native of Crete, Ill., a Chicago suburb.

Beebe was hurt with 3:14 left in the third quarter Sunday when he was called for an illegal block above the waist on Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict. He was limping after the play and then replaced by Johnson.

Treadwell had an amicable departure from the Vikings last month. He told the Pioneer Press then he was impressed with how Vikings general manager Rick Spielman handled his exit.

I heard 1 of the TV guys say that when 1 of our O lineman(Kline(?)) got hurt early on Sunday & had to leave the field that the player replacing him was 1 of only 2 subs we had for that position then. I'm not sure :scratch: if that is 'cause of injuries or depth of the roster but that will NEVER make it very far during the season. :doah: The last 2-3 seasons over 1/2 of our starters there have been out before the season is 1/2 done. :bonk: :tut:

Too much room for their WR's on the 1st series, Cousin's fumbles, then he missed Thielen when he was wide open on the only deep shot of the 1/2. :thumbs: :pouty: Then they wait 'til there's only ~ 6 minutes left to go no huddle & throw some quick passes to Diggs. :crazy: :tut: :doofus: :bonk: 'Bout turned it at 1/2 time, should've. :mad1:

Zimmer's big ego is in his own way now.  He treated Keenum like crap as he won game after game and everyone in the locker room liked him and they all got along great.  Just like Carlson the kicker that no it all Zimmer kicked off the team.  I like Bailey kicking but Zimmer blew it on Keenum and now he has noone else to blame other than himself and Spielman.  There was one play where Cousins was rolling out to the left.  He was 2 yards ahead of the nearest defender.  He just noticed him behind him and he sort of twitched big time like oh oh that guy is going to get me.  He is scared out there.

And in other news...

Case Keenum is doing in Washington exactly what the Vikings front office staff was afraid he'd do here if we kept him.   :bonk:

Still, I think I'd rather have Case at $7 Mil (with a ton of money to pay a beefed up offensive line) than $28 for a "game manager" and an O-line that is still over-matched after two years of being identified as the teams biggest liability.  Thanks, Spielman.

CHICAGO 16, MINNESOTA 6



 
 :pouty: ....
VIKINGS (2-2): It's obvious Minnesota goes as its running game goes. With Dalvin Cook tearing it up, the Vikings are highly competitive. But when the Vikings run into a great defense such as Chicago's, Kirk Cousins eventually has to make throws. Of course he is capable, but when Minnesota doesn’t have balance in its attack, its quarterback and work-in-progress offensive line are exposed. That makes Minnesota one of the most transparent teams in the league. In Week 4, Cook and Alexander Mattison combined for just 40 rushing yards. Even with Stefon Diggs (seven catches for 108 yards) thriving, the Vikings once again showed us what they truly are. GAME GRADE: C-minus | NEXT GAME: at Giants (Sun.)

-- Matt Williamson

 :bow: ......
BEARS (3-1): Sometimes there's such thing as a good injury. That's a brutal thing to say about Mitch Trubisky, but Chicago's offense is better without him in the lineup. Chase Daniel (22-for-30, 195 yards, 1 TD) took over early in the first quarter, when Trubisky was ruled out with a left shoulder injury. Daniel is never going to wow us. He won’t make difficult throws like Trubisky can. He won’t make big plays with his legs like Trubisky can. But he can play winning football with this supporting cast because he is smart and efficient. In a nasty defensive struggle, Daniel’s ball placement and decision making (especially compared to Trubisky’s) really stood out in a positive light. GAME GRADE: B +  | NEXT GAME: at Raiders (Sun.)

-- Matt Williamson

Like minds think alike.  I tuned in here to see if there was any Vikes talk.   :happy1: Ya I soak up the Cousins bashing.  I'm sure he is a nice guy.  BUT when you are a high paid athlete you open yourself up for criticism.  Cousins was in a unique position by being the only Veteran QB available at the time we got him.  He is one heck of a salesman and got way over the price that he is actually worth.  He is getting roughly $2 mil a game I believe.  I think he knew that if he got that kind of money that he is done when it is over.  I bet he was shell shocked when he did get that much.  Well I think he is just going with the flow just waiting to get all of these games done.  Then he can laugh every day the rest of his life knowing what he got...  There is not much Viking in Cousins.  And how long will the Wilf's let this go on?  I think some heads are going to roll on this like Spielman and maybe even Zim.  Although Zim can say it was Spielmans job not his to buy players.  Now they are afraid to bench him or they will really look stupid.  I think Mannion is no fireball but would like to see what he's got.  We have no QB on our roster.  ???????

Every year when a player isn't doing what is expected from him the fans, including me get tough on them.  Why not, they get big money and we want a win.  Cousins didn't ask to come here, the Vikings did.  They gave him a contract nobody could refuse.  That being said Cousins against winning teams is something like 5 wins against 25 or more losses.  Not good.  He holds the ball too long.  He doesn't throw the long ball enough. ect.  In his defense and there is not much, the O line didn't help him much but then again those fumbles didn't help the team.  Remember against the Packers he said he has to protect the ball.  Didn't learn from that statement I guess.  I also think that the Bears coaching staff did a much better game plan than our staff including Zimmer.  Many games ahead.  good luck.

I'll be willing to listen to Diggs' mea culpa, but I'm not holding my breath waiting for it.  Here is his contract.

Stefon Diggs signed a 5 year, $72,000,000 contract with the Minnesota Vikings, including a $15,000,000 signing bonus, $40,007,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $14,400,000.

The article said that Diggs was on the trading block at one point.  It said that Diggs was very upset over the Bears game.  that may have been the reason he was a no show at practice on Wednesday.  Anyway the team told the players that he won't be traded.  Diggs brother also said he may get traded.  So according to the article the rumor was true but it's in the past now.  He does get emotional.  I remember the stupid penalty he took after he scored a TD and then took his helmet off which cost the team.  I do like it when players get emotional in a productive way but not getting a penalty.  good luck.

How would you like to be a head coach of a professional sports team?

Coaches know there is no substitute for talent.  You can't coach it into players, so you need to put up with the antics of athletes who have been coddled their whole lives and now feel entitled to all that money, whether they put in a full day's work or not.

Last time I checked, this is a team sport, and everyone relies on you to be there everyday, not just Sundays.

However, the better you are, the more rope you get.

But what do I know?

Good luck.  Indeed.

Stefon Diggs on trade rumors: 'There's truth to all rumors,' unclear if Vikings 'want me' (https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/stefon-diggs-on-trade-rumors-theres-truth-to-all-rumors-unclear-if-vikings-want-me/)

Diggs didn't exactly deny that he's at odds with the team, responding to a question about trade rumors with this: "There's truth to all rumors."

"I won't be speaking on that," Diggs added, per The Athletic. Later in his media session, however, the wideout returned to the subject, saying, "I feel like there's truth to all rumors, regardless on what it is -- good or bad. I can't say what's real and what's not."

Asked whether he's requested a trade, Diggs said he personally hasn't communicated anything like that to the Vikings. But he also wouldn't rule out that his agent had done so for him.

"I haven't spoken to him," Diggs said. "You got to talk to him."

In general I think if you are on contract and accept the contract and getting paid better than Thielen then you should do all you can to help the team, not just yourself.  It's not good to have a disgruntled worker in the workplace.  Not in a company or a NFL team.  Especially if your getting millions.  It's not about one person, Diggs is not the head coach nor any coach.  You get a play called and it gets excecuted.  This complaining will do him no good in the future.  Teams will think, yes he will help our team, but is it worth his emotional outbursts that could disrupt the team.  The Patriots don't put up with those antics and the Vikings should do the same.  good luck.

https://sports.yahoo.com/cfl-quarterback-claims-rejected-vikings-172728990.html

say what????

Typical Vikings.  Typical NFL.

Spielman says, "I paid Kirk $84 Mil, therefore he is better than you (Bo Levi Mitchell), because I can't be wrong, until they fire me, and then its still Kirk's fault and not mine, because he is the one who sucked, not me."

Wasn't that also a problem with Ponder?  Weren't they afraid to have a legitimate quarterback competition because they were afraid they'd shatter his confidence?  Or was that Bridgewater?  I forget.

This is the hallmark of a wussie front office.  Spielman is gone after this year and - for good or ill - they'll send Zimm packing with him.

And that doesn't necessarily mean that Kubiak will automatically be the next coach either.  When they get a new GM, that guy usually gets to pick his own head coach.  If not, that tells you the disfunction in the organization goes all the way to ownership.

Good luck.  There is only 1 3/4 seasons left in the Kirk Cousins era.

Any good organization would have given him the job since he said "I'm gonna take his job".  That is what a good applicant should say.  I was hired for a job out of many applicants once because I said when asked what I saw as my future if hired, I said, "I want your job". to the Supervisor.  They smiled and I got the job.  Was there for 11 years and enjoyed it.

Ya, we had a guy who was interviewed and I was the meat manager so they sent him to me  after they talked to him to see what I thought.  I asked him if he would like to be a meat manager down the line or soon if a opening came up.  He said no, I don't want to be a part of management.  He said I like to come here, punch in, and given a meat list to cut for the day and get it done.  I told the store manager to hire him.  I have seen too many wana be managers in my time that just don't pan out.

He turned out to be one of the best workers they ever had.  Never a problem and worked his arse off every day.  I liked his honesty and work ethic.  Down the line we see guy's who can step up.  But they also have to have that same work ethics.  Kind of like football.

I'm just a couch potato "expert" and follow the Vikings only for the most part.  I like the guy's attitude saying I would go there and take Kirk's job.  Great attitude but he has to prove himself just like any other back up.  If it's true that the Viking guy say's no, no, no we don't want that.  Well that's the wrong thing to say.  It's not often a back up QB takes over the starting job coming to camp.  It take's years or a bad injury.  So good attitude but not reality.  Not defending Cousins but he had awesome stats last year.   Still we didn't go all the way.  What would he do if we had a O line like the Patriots and the same great recievers we have now along with our running backs.  None of what we are saying now would be the same.  It's not about one guy, it's about the whole team, coaches and staff.  It's early, 2 and 2.  good luck.

Well,  it looks like Diggs got fined by the Vikings for missing practice and meetings.  Press asked Zimmer if he will play this Sunday.  He said we will see.  They asked Zimm how he looked in practice.  Zimm said I have to look at the tape.  So it continues.  When is the trading deadline anyway?  good luck.

So they still have time with Diggs.  Oct. 29th at 4pm is the deadline for trades.  I hope if they trade him it will be a team that will have a poor record and demand a 1st round draft pic for him.  If not a 1st round pick then they should get a couple of established O lineman and draft picks.  His attitude should not be accepted if he keeps this up.  Fining him won't make him a happy camper.  good luck.

I don't think draft pics would be the choice with NE.  They would be low pics in any round since they have such great winning records.  If it would be them it would be players since they have so many good ones in my opinion.  If the vikings want a no. 1 pick they would trade him to teams like Miami for example.  They got till Oct. 29 to decide if at all.  Who knows Diggs and Thielen may get a lot of passes today since I heard that the Giants defensive backs are terrible.  good luck.

Second half we played well, especially the defense.  Giants had good chances to score but they screwed them pretty much themselves with the help of our defense.  Great game.  Thielen was the star of the game with Cook tied right there with him.  good luck.

Hot Toddy for Reb I think.  Hope you feel better.  Had to work today making time and a half union pay like I use to do when I was working 6 days a week for 20 of my 35 plus years.  So I did get to see most of the second half.  Really like the way they fight back and just keep fighting.  They had great spirit today.  Diggs did a great job today.  He did drop a couple which he said he has to work on.

The play calling was good too.  I really thought this was going to be a closer game.  Have to hand it to our O line and also our defense.  Cousins said he need to play angry and I hope he is pizzed off every game from now on.  Good luck.

I thought they kind of shot themselves in the foot with the fake FG just before the 1/2. Was gettin a little worried too when they made it 24-20 but those next 2 possessions where we had long drives & got the TD were awesome. :happy1: Zimmer made some good calls on his defense as well & they were able get in Wentz's face then too. :cool:

Did you see the end of the game when Cousins was tryin to kneel to kill the clock? One of their D lineman took a bit of a cheap shot :tut: & hit Cousins more than he should've.  Cousins got PO'ed & got in his face until 1 of our O lineman seperated 'em. I like seein him get fired up like that 'cause I think he plays better when he's a little chippy. Even heard Zimmer tell a reporter last week that might've been the reason, the LB who mouthed off before the game, he played so good. Great game for the offense :happy1: :cool:, not so sure about the defense though. :doah:

Ya Cousins is a nerd so to see him actually get mad is almost funny.  BUT if that is what makes him play better so be it.  I think keeping Zimmer as far away as possible from the offense and special teams the better.  He has hard enough time just tending to the defense.  Good win team!!!

Oct 22nd

Sherels released by Vikings


EAGAN — The Minnesota Vikings released Rochester native and long-time NFL punt returner Marcus Sherels on Tuesday.

With Mike Hughes having taken over as the punt returner in last Sunday’s 42-30 win at Detroit, Sherels was inactive. He also plays cornerback, but was deep on the depth chart at that spot.

A source said Monday there was a strong chance the Vikings would sign wide receiver Davion Davis off the practice squad. With the move made on Sherels on Tuesday, Davis remained a candidate to be signed and be available against the Redskins.


Sherels played with the Vikings from 2010-18 and was not offered a contract last March as a free agent. He was re-signed Sept. 24 after punt returner and receiver Chad Beebe was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury. In three games, Sherrels returned six punts for a 5.5-yard average.

Sherels was asked by the Pioneer Press on Monday about the possibility of being cut.

“I don’t know,’’ he said. “I’m just taking it day by day and helping any way I can. … You can’t really worry about those things.”

Sherels is the leading punt returner in Vikings history with 2,480 yards. He has a career average of 10.5 yards per return.

The Vikings don’t owe Sherels any more money on his prorated minimum contract of $930,000. When he signed Sept. 24 as a vested veteran for the rest of the season, he was guaranteed 25 percent of his salary for all remaining games but he already has earned that 25 percent.

THIELEN HOPES TO PLAY THURSDAY

Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen isn’t giving up in his quest to keep his consecutive games streak alive. Thielen, who has played in all 87 games in his six-year NFL career, suffered a hamstring injury at Detroit. He didn’t practice Tuesday.

“I don’t know what the percent chance is (on playing), but I feel great,’’ Thielen said before the workout. “Obviously, it’s a short week, so I’m doing everything I can to try to play. It’s come a long way in the two days since the game, so I feel good and am very hopeful for the game.’’

Thielen had an MRI on Monday. A source said afterward that the injury isn’t serious but that Thielen wasn’t expected to play against the Redskins.

“Obviously, as a competitor, as an athlete, you want to play,’’ Thielen said.

Sure was! I was in total disbelief when it actually happened. Some of the Packers fans I knew were in absolute tears, literally. They went so far as to tear down their Brett Favre shrines in their basements!  :rotflmao:

I still about puke though when I hear these TV guys gushing about what a great guy Sean Payton is. He should've been kicked out of the NFL for good after all the BS the Saints pulled in that playoff game! That may be OK for ultimate fighting but it has no place in the NFL. Then when he's the same guy who gets whacked on some missed calls in a playoff game himself, he whines like a baby and gets pass interference rules changed. :confused: Those changes have made some of these games almost unwatchable with all the replays, delays, thumb twiddling, etc.  :bs: If all we're going to do is watch replays, I have better things to do. Like watch a replay of the entire Gophers game!  :rotflmao:

Viking Jim Marshall ran the wrong way 55 years ago this week

I heard some interesting Jim Marshall stories on the radio a year or so ago.  I think it was Chuck Foreman telling them, but I could be wrong.  I hate to misquote. 

Jim Marshall was the undisputed team leader on defense and in training camp.  And Bud Grant was pleased to let Jim serve in this capacity.  If someone needed to "get away" from training camp for a few hours and was going to sneak back in after curfew, they cleared it with Jim first.  When it was time to break camp in Mankato and head to Eden Prairie, Jim started the vehicle convoy by pulling out a .45 Colt and shooting it in the air.

Post by: Steve-o on October 25, 2019, 09:57:12 AM
Any of you guys catch ex-Vikings offensive lineman, Alex Boone, trash Adrian Peterson on the radio.  Here is a link to the article.  It is short and worth a look if you didn't hear Boone's quotes.

Ex-Viking Alex Boone Rips 'Self-Centered' Adrian Peterson's Attitude (https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2859403-ex-viking-alex-boone-rips-self-centered-adrian-petersons-attitude)

After that, it was interesting - maybe even instructive - to observe which current Vikings sought out Adrian Peterson after the game for hugs, congratulations, and photo ops.  Clearly Peterson was/is a polarizing player.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Reinhard on October 25, 2019, 10:26:14 AM
Ya, I read that about Boone's comments and if true it doesn't bode well for Peterson.  Correct me if I'm wrong but [I didn't check back ] but didn't the undefeated 49rs win against the skins 9 to 0??  The skins have a good defense and it showed last night.  Could have been a lot tighter if Keenum stayed in the game.  That rookie QB of there's is not ready to be a starter.  So we scored 10 more points than the 49rs did.

I was expecting a lot  more scoring from us but didn't know anything about their defense.  Our defense played well with an exception of a few missed play's.  Rhodes made a stupid penalty in the game .  So obvious that anyone could of called that on him.  He needs to play smarter.  Our kicker nailed it for us.  And for the first time we never had to punt the ball.  I also have to say that Zimmer made a bad call in our 40 yard line going for a 1st down on the 4th down play.  Glad our defense held.  good luck.

That's what I thought, but when I saw how many folks warmed up to Peterson after the game, it was clearly not the case.

Again Peterson IS polarizing; whether you criticize him for what he did to his son (while getting paid for not playing the whole year) or praise him for his overall hall of fame rushing career.

Clearly teammates from Peterson's glory days came to his defense and new Vikings stars like Cook and Diggs also seem to hold him in high regard.  It think it has something to do with the mentality of professional athletes in a skill positions.  They HAVE to think they are the best and this is a thought process that does not fit into my simple, lunch pail, work-a-day brain.  It is clear Cook and Diggs have something in common with Peterson and maybe I have something in common with Boone (which certainly isn't athletic prowess).

I didn't see the plays, but I heard one call on the radio.  Pete Bursich made a comment after one of them where he said Randal McDaniel make a career out of taking out defensive linemen in a similar fashion.  He didn't see anything wrong with it and that it was a ticky-tack call.  However, if the refs are going to consistently throw the flag, he will have to adjust.

A lot of them were legit. It was like a broken record, stalling drives and keeping them out of the end zone. "Holding, #65". He's digressed especially since he got injured. Must be the pay cut he took since he left Ohio St.!  :happy1:

Post by: LPS on October 25, 2019, 03:06:43 PM
I heard the interview with Boone.  I think it is probably right on point too.  I can see athletes admiring Adrian's toughness but he is not the brightest bulb on the tree.  Adrian was taught as a little kid that he had to take the ball and run or he would probably get a whipping from his Dad if he didn't do well.  And that if he "done good" everyone loved him. (And his Dad looked good too)  That is all he knows and how sad that is.  Now as he is getting old it must be hard for him to wonder what he will do when football is over for him.

In answer to my own question. 

As a 14-year-old in 2008, Kearse was among several others in his home city of Fort Myers, Fla., who robbed two females at gunpoint at their victims’ residence.

Addressing the felony case, Kearse told the Anderson (S.C.) Independent Mail a few days before that 2016 draft, “When I did that at 14, my mom was crying. She was hurt. When I was going off to college, she was happy, she was proud of me. So I just always wanted to make sure that whatever I did, I was able to put a smile on my mom’s face.”

It is a thing.  Remember that Jim Marshall story (told by Chuck Foreman) that I referenced last week?

I just googled "NFL Player Airport Gun" and the top six results referenced five DIFFERENT players arrested at airports for carrying loaded guns.  The other link link in the top six was about two college players who got caught.

Vikings’ Zimmer ‘ticked off’ with news of safety Kearse’s arrest (https://www.foxsports.com/north/story/minnesota-vikings-mike-zimmer-jayron-kearse-mike-hughes-103019)

“I’m very, very ticked off,” Zimmer said on Wednesday. “Since I’ve been here the last six years, I’ve worked extremely hard to clean up the reputation of this organization and this team off the field. We’ve put in a lot of resources for them to not have these kinds of issues, and for them to do that is really idiotic.”

Two other people were in the car with Kearse, including Vikings cornerback Mike Hughes. After Kearse failed a preliminary breath test, according to the criminal complaint, the second officer went to check on the male passenger, Hughes, who had the door open and was vomiting. That’s when the gun was discovered.

“I feel like he let me down. He let the team down. He let his teammates down, the organization down,” Zimmer said.

Kearse apologized for his actions while speaking on Monday to reporters.

It’s not a reflection of who I am as a person or what this organization stands for,” Kerse said. “The team and these fans deserve better. I definitely take this matter seriously, and I’m sorry for putting anybody in harm’s way and I will go through all the necessary steps to improve myself.”



Really?   :confused:

Even further proof that Zimmer is over his head as a Head Coach.  Why did he call another time out that led to them making points.  Otherwise we had stopped them.  DUH!!!  Would make a great D Coach as that is his thing.  AND Cousins is not the QB for us.  He is a pussy that did act like an agressive QB for 4 games but that is not his style.  He should retire, give us some money back and go and be a Sunday School teacher.  No offense intended neither.  I just think he would be great with kids and showing them how to be nice people.

I have to agree with Bobber in that they gave up way too many big plays on defense. That long run was made without anyone hardly puttin a hand on him & at least a couple of the long passes to Hill were when there was nobody around.  :bonk: Granted Cousin looked bad especially early on but he ended up with 3 TD's & if the ground game does anything that's usually enough. They didn't change the game plan for running the ball quick enough either IMO but kept tryin to run right at their 9 man front & that didn't work from the get go. They should have let Cook run out wide to better use his speed, preferably away from Elflien's side. Even with as bad as they looked I thought they were going to pull it out of their backside until the 27 yard shanked punt. :doah: :pouty:

...  AND Cousins is not the QB for us.  ...  He should retire, give us some money back and go and be a Sunday School teacher.  ...  I just think he would be great with kids and showing them how to be nice people.

Good QBs are hard to find.  I'm still waiting to see which free agent QB would have been a better option.  It wasn't Case K.  It might have been Teddy B. - he did well enough for New Orleans in relief of Brees - but the book won't be written on Teddy until he is the starter for a new team and plays a full season.  Otherwise, drafting rookie QBs is as much of a crap shoot as ever.  You can't say what the answer is until AFTER you have it.

Still, I think its funny how our sports teams end up with "Minnesota Nice" stars.  I'm thinking that Kirk Cousins, Joe Mauer, and Zach Parise could host their own Holiday Special on WCCO.

Post by: Dotch on November 04, 2019, 09:19:15 AM
Yup, great team loss. Defensive secondary has become a liability. Anthony Harris got faked out of his jock and fell on his @$$ on that touchdown run. He has to make that play. He's paid to do that. Never been a big Tre Waynes fan and he continues to get his backside burned when he doesn't get called for interference. Rhodes is a half step slower than he was last year. Smith is still stud but he can't do everything back there to cover for others sloppy play. When he came in free on that blitz late in the game Moore must've about crapped. Cousins bad throws in the first half, not good. Guy can play but he doesn't always execute up to his big $$$$ contract. O line continues to stink. Elflein needs to go back to Ohio St. to learn how to block or get traded to Green Bay where holding is allowed. Only bright spot was the defensive line. They deserved better from their teammates.

Was a pleasure watching the Fudge get beat tho. They still get by with more holding than any other team I know. Refs: Here's a clue. When a defensive lineman with a full head of steam comes to a momentary stop when he's blown by the offensive lineman, guess what just happened? How the refs don't see it or why they choose to ignore it is beyond me.  :confused:

The article I read blamed most of the offensive problems on Stefanski, sayin he didn't follow Kubiak's game plan very well. :tut:  Just a little better run game in the 1st 1/2 would've helped Cousins a lot IMO by opening up a lot of the play action stuff they like to do too.

Not slamming you, Gunner, but which article did you read?  I'd like to look at it too.

Hearing how tight-lipped NFL coaching staffs are, I'd be hard pressed to believe anyone in the media REALLY knew what Kubiak's game plan was or if Stefanski followed it or not (unless some player or coach threw Stefanski under the bus off the record).  The player's still have to execute the plays Kubiak wants them to execute.  And if they don't, I'd imagine its Stefanski's job to figure out something on the fly that will work.  And you gotta believe Kubiak is on the headset too.

I'm dubious of the article, that's all I'm saying.

Heard 1 of the guys doing the game mention this too yday when they made 1 of their key 1st downs late LPS. They lined Kelce up outside like a WR & that put a much smaller, 5' 11" - 185 lbs, Mackensie Alexander on him. Kelce goes 6' 5" - 260 #'s, he just turned right in front of the DB & caught the pass. DB couldn't even reach the ball.  :confused:

I didn't watch the game until the second half.  I agree With the coments above.  Could someone tell me why the Vikings called that one time out in the second half that just didn't make sense to me.  Still confused what happend.  Seemed like the defense was doing a good job and then that time out by Zimmer maybe?  I was attacked by grandkids during this and didn't get the why.  All I know is I was pizzed off.  good luck.

Ya that that pizzed me off too.  I heard on the radio that Rhodes was playing on the side of the field by the coach and he put up his hands like, what am I supposed to do now?  Then Zim called it.  I think Zim maybe over thinking things and now he has the D confused....   This has happened before.  Nice to hear you were having fun with the Grandkids RH....   :happy1:

Just like holding on the O line, they can call that  :bs: on EVERY play if they want. :rolleyes: Ref's discretion on both, they may call something on 1 play & let the same thing go on the next. Did hear 1 announcer say earlier this season though that Rhodes had the most penalties per times thrown at of anybody in the league. Not sure :scratch: he really has changed how he plays, as he's always been a physical type player, as much as it's that the refs have changed the way they call it & he hasn't adjusted to that. :sad:

Going back to that time out call.  According to a fan on facebook on the Viking page it was on 3rd down and the Viking defense rushed the QB  and caused a fumble by the KC QB Moore. and it was at that moment Zimmer called the time out when we could have recovered that fumble.  It was the fans on that page that said that time out sealed the game for KC.  Just like going for a first down on fourth down  in our own end.  Stupid.  Don't like it when it's the coaches that help cause a loss for the team.  I think at that moment the defense had momentum and that stupid time out let some air out of that mementum.  That's twice now that Zimmer made stupid calls.  good luck.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on November 06, 2019, 09:19:29 AM
Ya I'm kind of worried about ol Zimmy.  I have liked the guy but his half of the team has cost us some games.  I was mad at Cousins but the O put up 23 points.  The D gave up 24.  SO who's fault was it?  The Green Bay game we finally scored some points but the D already gave up 21 points early in the first half.  Who's fault was that?   He needs to worry about his own half and leave the whole O to someone else and quit calling time outs.

Just read about how Odell Beckman Jr is frustrated in Cleveland.  We all knew that would happen.  Do you think he has matured and would fit with Cousins as a Viking?  Would he get along with Diggsy and Theilen.  It just may work in a weird way.  I don't want a diva, Diggsy is enough.  BUT just maybe it would work.  Like this Sunday at Dallas....   I know that wouldn't happen BUT!!!

They said he has been in hospice care for awhile.  They also said liver or kidney damage was the main issue.  Can't remember which one.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Former Minnesota Vikings kicker Fred Cox, one of the last of the straight-on placekickers and a standout on several conference championship teams, has died. He was 80.
   
Cox’s wife, Bonnie, announced the death through the Vikings without providing details.
   
Cox, who also co-created the Nerf football, scored a Minnesota-record 1,365 points in his 15 seasons, often kicking in nasty conditions because the Vikings played outdoors during his career from 1963-77. When he retired, he was second in NFL history in scoring behind George Blanda - who also played quarterback - and had made 282 field goals.
   
Cox was one of 11 Vikings to play in all four of the team’s Super Bowls, all defeats. He kicked in 18 postseason games.
   
The Vikings called Cox “one of our proudest legends, a respected teammate and friend. Fred's football career as the Vikings’ all-time leading scorer set the stage for a life where he went on to achieve great things in business and in his community. Fred's positive energy, strength in his faith and passion for life will be missed.

Did some yard work yesterday but got to watch some of the Cowboy game.  Don't like the Cowboys but was rooting for them to stick it to the Pat's.  Didn't make it all the way through the cheesehead game.  We are now tied with them but they did beat us once this season so it's a must that we beat them next time or gain on them.  good luck.

It's starting to look like it doesn't really matter what 30 of the 32 teams do from now on as it's shaping up to a 49ers/Ravens SB. They play on Sunday so that'll be good to see how that comes out. Seattle might have a say in it all as they've already beat SF once & play 'em again on the last MNF game of the year. Hope not as I don't care for Pete Carroll at all. Both Seattle & SF have a pretty tough schedule left though, it should be interesting.

I read that Theilen has been out since Game 7 against Detroit!  That flew by fast. I hope they let him heal and not rush it with him.  We will need him but not till he is 100%.  The D needs to step up to help the Offense.

Despite giving up more than 200 yds on the ground :banghead:, we need Linval Joseph back as he's a stud in the middle of the D line, & having all those turnovers we still had the ball with plenty of time on the clock(~ 3 minutes) to win the game. :crazy: When Cook & our LT went out the offense changed IMO. :pouty: Cousins wasn't as sharp in the 2nd half either, mostly because of their pressure. :cry: They don't lose at home very often 'specially since Wilson joined 'em. We need to get Thielin, Joseph, & now Cook back & figure out why our Special Teams leads the league in fumbles.  :censored: :bonk: :sad:

Post by: Reinhard on December 03, 2019, 01:27:48 PM
Watched the first half and fell asleep LOL.  Very few games that are on late I make it through.  I looked at a few Viking threads on facebook and it seems that Rhodes got some real heat from the fans.  Almost all replies were about getting rid of him or benching him.  Guess he made some stupid penalty or more.  I've seen him do that as well.  Why even play him since I"ve read that he will not be with the Vikings next season.  good luck.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on December 03, 2019, 02:08:22 PM
He had a bad game but his hit forced the last fumble of theirs & givin us the ball so we had a chance win. I read they went 4 for 4 when they threw his way & he's had a bad year. Plus he's gettin big money, 5 year/$70 mil, which he just signed last year so he's not a UFA 'til 2023.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Reinhard on December 03, 2019, 02:34:39 PM
Thanks Gunner.  That's the internet for you.  3 people on the Viking face book site said it was his last year.  Maybe they just wished it was his last year.  good luck.

Post by: Boar on December 03, 2019, 06:10:49 PM
yeah hes had a bad year, more pas interference calls than ive ever seen from him. he had a personal foul forn15 yards on 3rd  and long that they scored on. hes a great player but needs to tighten things up
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on December 03, 2019, 07:33:24 PM
He actually had that penalty that gave them a first down when we had stopped them.  They then went and scored a TD.  Later on with Smith right in front of him he let a guy run right past him and score a TD.  He kept looking at Smith as if it was his responsibility but it was all on Rhodes.  He does that about once a game now.  I went to bed during the 3rd quarter.  Pathetic.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on December 03, 2019, 08:49:27 PM
Not so sure :scratch: that him & Smith were on the same page on that play.  I'm sure Rhodes thought he had help deep on that play so he let his guy go. Really loud there & that might've been a factor.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!

Yep, what gunner said. Smith was supposed to be there over the top. Just some bad communication on that one.

:happy1: After the play was over the cameras showed him & Smith talking on the bench, I even seen Smith nodding his head agreeing with Rhodes. I will admit that the penalty Rhodes had was  :imstupid: & couldn't of come at a worst time. :tut: :pouty: But you don't win many NFL games when you have 4 TO's, 3 fumbles(Cook, Mattison, & the 1 on the kickoff)/1 int, even if your at home let alone a place like Seattle.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on December 04, 2019, 08:32:24 AM
That was my take too when I was watching the game, Gunner.  But yesterday I listened to Ben Leber's analysis on KFAN and he tended to put the blame for that play on Rhodes.

Smith might have been nodding his head to Rhodes as if to say, "Yeah, yeah... etc. etc."

First of all, Rhodes had to have seen Smith at the line.  You can't offer "over the top safety help" if you are up on the line of scrimmage.  Second, Smith picked up the a receiver in coverage right off the line - either the tight end or slot (I can't remember), so I can't assert that Smith was out of position on the play.

Post by: Gunner55 on December 04, 2019, 09:05:45 AM
That could easily be Steve -o as # 22 doesn't make mistakes very often & that's why he's 1 of our leaders on defense. But I'm still willing to bet that the % of games won when you have 4 TO's is near 0, 5% at best, even if it's a home game. They lost & it was a tough game to lose so everyone wants to point a finger at somebody.  :tut: :thumbs: :pouty:

Nice win yday :happy1:, was a little disappointed when they scored. The defense looked better with Joseph back in there to plug the middle against the run. Hunter's big game & the change in the secondary helped the pass defense too. Good to see Cook & Reiff in there on the other side of the ball as well. Cousins had another good game(24/30) & thought :scratch: I heard 'em say at 1/2 time that his 11 completions had went to 9 different guys. :happy1: Sounds like Thielin will be back next week :cool:, hope so.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on December 09, 2019, 12:32:49 PM
It still feels like we are an above average, below elite-level team.  Like Bill Parcells sez...  You are what your record says you are.  And in the case of the Vikes, I think he is right again.

Its the Vikings M.O. to kick away a couple of games they had a chance to win and either miss the playoffs or give themselves a tougher road.  But I guess you could say this of all such teams with similar records.  Still, its rare when the Vikes steal a game they were expected to lose.  Hopefully they can get a little healthier and hotter toward the end of the season and perhaps their opponents will be trending in the opposite direction.

Apologies to Kurt Cousins - the "Joe Mauer" of the MN Vikings.  Who wouldn't like a fiery leader like Drew Brees, Russel Wilson or Patrick Mahomes?  But our "steady Eddie" is getting the job done for the most part.  Man, I wish we would have had a healthy Thelen all season.

Minnesota Vikings (9-4) @ Los Angeles Chargers (5-8)
Gamet on Sunday, Dec. 15, 4:05 p.m. EST

 :reporter; ....
The Vikings maintained their perfect record at home in Week 14 by beating David Blough and the Lions 20-7. By rebounding from their narrow loss to the Seahawks to earn a victory against a division rival, the Vikings maintained their grip on the final wild card spot in the NFC and stayed within a game of the Packers for the NFC North lead, with a game against Green Bay coming in Week 16.

They can’t look ahead to that all-important, and potentially division-deciding game too quickly though. The Packers themselves learned the hard way how traveling out to California and taking the Chargers lightly could come back to bite you.

Los Angeles, who is eliminated, broke its three-game losing streak last week by thrashing the Jaguars 45-10 in Jacksonville in a game where Philip Rivers threw three touchdowns without an interception and Austin Ekeler rushed for 101 yards on just eight carries while racking up an additional 112 receiving yards.

This game means everything for the Vikings, as a loss would hurt their wild card chances and all but end their shot at an NFC North title. For the Chargers, it’s about making their record look better at season’s end and possibly strengthening the case to keep coach Anthony Lynn on board next season.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Reinhard on December 13, 2019, 10:33:39 AM
Yep,  all the games left will be tough.  Bright side is that we get Thielen back I believe.  We are pretty much healthy also which is a big plus.  Our defense must give Rivers a lot of pressure.  good luck.

Games are typically broadcast on CBS and Fox on Sunday afternoons, NBC on Sunday nights, ESPN on Monday nights and the NFL Network on Thursday nights (note that CBS is the parent company of CNET). Most of the Thursday night games are simulcast on Fox, Amazon Prime and Twitch.

Post by: LPS on December 24, 2019, 07:33:24 AM
Boy did that game suck.  And it is not cuz Cook wasn't playing neither.  In three years he has been on the bench more games than he has played I think.  We were getting our butts wooped early in the season by doing Zimmers run up the middle crap and keeping Cousins in the pocket.  Then Kubiak and Stephanski got things moving out of the pocket to give Cousins some time and it worked great.  SO last night they reverted to the way we get our butts wooped again.  Keep him in the pocket so it is easier to sack him and run up the middle.  DUH!!!  I'm thinking Zimmer tried to help again.  I still think we should dump him and get McCarthy here.  AND I am done with Cousins too.  He isn't the one when he can't complete 10 yard passes to open receivers. 
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on December 24, 2019, 09:05:57 AM
Got to agree, it was hard to watch but I knew we were in trouble before 1/2 time. When we got the 3rd TO, went 3 & out for only a 10-3 game. :pouty: I already knew we were in trouble. :sad: The O line sucked too as # 55, Smith, spent most of the night within arms reach of Cousins. Put couple guys on him to slow him down a little :scratch:, maybe. :bonk: The D wasn't much better as only Adams & Jones were the only ones doin any real damage but Zimmer's defense couldn't even stop those 2. :thumbs: Adams had 13 catches for 113 yds & Jones had 154 of their 185 yds on the ground. :banghead:

Post by: Reinhard on December 24, 2019, 09:52:57 AM
Yes it was a sad game and at home as well.  fourth and one late in the game while we are behind and Zimmer calls for a punt  :angry2:Almost every game he makes a huge mistake with stupid calls.  Rhodes had his arse handed to him the whole game also.  I agree with whoever had Cousins stand in the pocket and had the runners run up  the middle should be gone today.  Zimmer didn't look happy in the news conference after the game and he should have been.  He and his coaches were to be blamed for the loss.  Where the hell was Thielen????  Cousins has this attitude during his press conference.  Like he wasn't bothered at all.  This is the NFL and it's one game at a time BS.  good luck.

We have the talent.  We need leaders on that team.  I think it was Carl Eller that went in at half time and busted up the blackboard.  That's what we need.  Worst game plan in quite a while on offense this game.  Great teams have leaders and play their best as if it was the super bowl each time.  This team does not.  good luck.

How many times did the Pack rush 3 and get to the QB?

       :reporter; Minnesota Vikings

(10-5. Last week: )

 :popcorn: ...
Coming into Monday night's game, a lot was made about Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins' 0-8 record on Monday nights and 7-14 in primetime overall. Those seemed like random, meaningless stats. But, where there is smoke, there is fire. After throwing for only 122 yards, Cousins now is 0-9 in Monday night games and 7-15 in prime time. But Cousins doesn't deserve all the blame like he was getting early in the season. Cousins had played well since Week 5, but not on Monday when he was without injured running back Dalvin Cook. The Vikings are in the playoffs, but will have to go on the road. If Cook isn't available in the postseason, Cousins will have to take his game to another level, :tut: because what he showed Monday night wasn't nearly good enough.  :pouty:

Caution.... Watch out fur "DA BEARS"  :blues brothers:

That's not much more than pocket change for the month for these guys. Besides they could've talked to him about that to see how he felt. He might've told 'em forget it, I'd rather set out or they may have settled on a figure for that bonus.  :scratch:

It's not like dat at all Glenn. You see, I told my wife :queen: dat if da Vikes were ta beat "DA Bears" dat I would commit suicide. When she came home from da bingo last night I told her dat "DA Bears" won. She said "I heard" and was den in a bad mood.

I'm still tryin ta figure out :scratch: if she was in a bad mood cuz "DA Bears" won or cuz she didn't win nuttin at da bingo. :confused:

I heard Stefanski's name mentioned yday early on Golic & Wingo as somebody who might be gettin interviewed for at least 2 of the recent HC openings. Thought :scratch: they said that the Browns went after him pretty hard last season.

Post by: LPS on December 31, 2019, 04:40:12 PM
I like listening to them too.  Ya I heard the Browns are looking at him again and asked permission to meet him.  I don't think this should be allowed until after the team is out of the playoffs.  This is a huge distraction.  Noone ever talks about how a couple of years ago and the Giants pretty much gave Shurmer the job before the playoff game with Philly.  Remember what happened in that game????   Complete distraction.  You can't interview head coaches because of that so why Asst. Coachs and Coordinators?  I read the Browns have to come here instead of Stefanski going there.

The difference with those teams is that they both had up-and-coming QBs waiting in the wings even though Montana and Favre each had a little tread left on the tires.

I don't think anyone believes the heir apparent to Brady is on the Patriots roster now.

it will be very interesting to see what Belecheck, Grady, and Kraft do this off season.

That would be pretty cool Glenn.  I wanted the Vikes to draft Garappolo when he was in the draft.  And now Alexander and Hughes are both out for the game.  SO Xavier has to play the whole game.  He has to cover Thomas who is really good.  Maybe Xavier will wake up and do good....   :confused:

Saints are # 4 in the league against the run but # 20 against the pass so I expect to see a lot of play action in our game as that's what we do best. So Cook needs to have a good game for that to work. Vikes are the biggest dog of the weekend, + 7.5 last I seen. :cheerleader:

I saw that also Gunner.  Probably true.  Hope Cousins plays angry.  Would be a big deal if we win.  I remember how many presidents praised certain cabinet members and said that the president has full confidence and within a week they would be gone.  Who knows.  If we show up and look real bad then I would think the owners may think a little bit about the situation.  good luck.

My biggest concern is long term.  We had Kyle Slohter and let him go.  We had Bridgwater and let him go.  We really do not have any young QB.  What if they dump Cousins next year then what.  We need to draft a young QB and work him in the system.  No more QB"s that have been around for awhile.  good luck.

Rhodes will be totally burnt crisp toast and the saints wide reciever, that Thomas, will set playoff receiving yards and reception records.  :nerd: :nerd: :nerd:

Only downside was the nailbiter it was.  Had to have a extra cocktail when it went into overtime.  I was so hoping the kicker would miss that field goal at the end of the original game.  The guy made it twice because of a penalty or something.  Rudolf did push off of the defender somewhat but they didn't call it.  I didn't think they would win that game but they did.  Didn't think the Patriots would loose but they did.  Thought the Saints would win but they didn't.  Now its off to the 49rs who most think are going to win.  Is this the year the teams that are favored will all loose?  Crazy playoff year.  good luck.

Was sure they were toast when NO tied it up & went to OT.  :sad: Great to see Cook healthy & have the game he did. Helped open things up for Cousins. For those clamoring for an OPI call against Rudolph, it was pretty marginal given the amount of jostling that preceded the "push off", that on replay looked more like a "let go of me so I can catch this ball" move. Let's see if they can do it to SF next.  :happy1:

Regarding Rhodes and Smith...

Last time we talked about this (a couple of games back), I thought it was Rhodes' fault.  Smith was on the line showing blitz and Rhodes let the guy run past.  On the play yesterday, I think Smith blew it.  On the receiver cut, Rhodes broke outside assuming he was going to get help inside.  Smith should have been moving over in case the receive went post, which is what happened, but Smith was too late.

Fumbles...

I'm surprised there aren't more of them when you consider all the scratching, clawing, ripping, punching, and helmet sticking going on.  That being said, Brees gave up an easy one when all Hunter did was smack him in the triceps.  Yeah, the commentary guys used Brees' thumb injury as an excuse, but it looks like Brees got caught by surprise. 

The Non-Call...

I didn't think Rudolph's contact rose to the level of offensive pass interference.  The non-call was not egregiously missed and the refs were letting receivers and defenders mix it up all day.  Sorry, but it couldn't have happened to a nicer team!  (The only thing that would have made it better would be if it was the Cowboys.  I'm sure we all remember 1975.)

I stand corrected.  Now that I look at it real close, it was a wonder Smith was in the area at all.  Kamara cut his route short and broke towards the near sideline where there were other Vikings defenders.  Good for Smith to be able to recognize where the play was going and close the distance as soon as he did.

However, at the beginning of the play - at least the replay I saw - you can see Rhodes communicating with the other DB who was not on screen.  Since there were no other receivers on the near sideline where the other DB was, I can only guess that he was expecting that DB to be playing center field while Smith was on Kamara and the other safety was up playing the run.

his helmet clearly crossed the plain of the goal line...........there was never any real angle where you can see the ball. based on where he holds the ball it could of crossed............but there never really was a good view of where the ball was................

PA's take from 'dis mornin'...

The Saints had one "game destroying" player on defense that Stefanski and the offense needed to account for.

The Niners' defense has FIVE such players plus Richard Sherman, who may or may not fit that category depending on how he plays on any given day.

Post by: Steve-o on January 08, 2020, 09:59:43 AM
I think pretty much everyone had the Saints winning.  They had too many factors in their favor.

Heard the question asked many times:  what has to happen if the Vikes are going to win and the answer would be to list off about a half dozen things that the Vikings hadn't done for several weeks:  Big games from Cook & Thielen, superior offensive line play, pressure on Brees, turnovers on defense, big plays from Cousins, etc.

Guess what... all those things happened.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on January 08, 2020, 03:12:07 PM
I just heard Rosen say the 49ers arent the best run stoppers although pretty good.  Theilen has a minor ankle injury from practice.   :bonk:  Maybe it is just hype to confuse SF.  AND Diggs is sick today but supposed to be fine for the game.  Hope he isn't whining.. 

Hey remember that memo about a year ago about how we have a jet?  Where the heck is it?  Is HD bogarting it?  Wouldn't that be fun for all of us to fly down for the game in San Fran?  Boar would have flowers in his hair I'm thinking....

Grand Forks weather said there may be some rain in that area on Sat.

Hey I would fly in that but I would be wearing sunglasses as we boarded so noone recognized me.  I have a correction to make about the weather at San Fran.  It will be 57 for a high with 16 MPH winds and small craft warnings due to wind.  The TV was talking about Frisco TX where the Bison will play this weekend.  Still getting used to Fargo TV.

This was a game that we got out coached big time.  I kept yelling at the screen for Cousins to stay out of the pocket.  That's not the place for him.  He needed to roll out and then make the play.  Whoever told him to stay in the pocket for nearly every play needs to go TODAY.  Stefanski spent more time getting interviewed by the Browns than paying attention to the game plan.  Why does the NFL allow this BS.  Let him go TODAY. Zimmer is a good defensive coach but not a good head coach.  We need a young aggressive head coach who motivates the players every game.  We need a couple of young QB's who can grow with the team instead of guy's who has been around who will stay only for a few years and make their big money and go home.  Didn't we go to the Super Bowl 4 times under Bud Grant?  We lost but we got there.  Since then it's been up and down but never on top.  That's a long stretch.  Coaching, Coaching and coaching.  We have most of the players who can win except still the O line and some defensive back needs.   Rhoads needs to go Today.  Gave up another score yesterday.  If we had the line the Titans have Cousins would have been a hero yesterday.  It's not all on him.  Cook is a great back but with this line he was running against a wall.  Like I told my wife.  I used to get upset and dwell on a loss like this for some time but I don't.  Like LPS said, no changes, same outcome.  good luck.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on January 12, 2020, 10:53:56 AM
Couldn't agree more RH.  That Josh McDaniels that is O coordinator for the Patriots would be a good guy to have as a head coach.  Young and very smart.  I too used to be bothered all week until the next game when we lost.  I don't anymore. (or I try not to)

We did this good with Keenum.  Sure didn't need to spend 84 mil and cash strap the team to get the same results we had with Keenum.  Should have kept him and Sloter.  Then we could go buy a big O line and other players as well.  BUT Zim's bullheadedness prevented that from happening.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on January 12, 2020, 11:44:55 AM
I just saw on the screen of pregame talk.  Kevin Stefanski offered head coach job with Cleveland.  SO he was preoccupied with that whilst calling the game and we got clobbered.  Just like the Shurmer and Philly distraction.

Josh McDaniels was a disaster as a head coach for the Broncos.  I wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole.  The only reason he is succeeding is cause he is with the Patriots and no one on the team dares to challenge Belecheck or Brady.  As long as McDaniels keeps those two happy, he'll be fine.

                 :popcorn:

So what is Kubiak's job...?  Vice President of Advising Zim of What Not to Say in Press Conferences?

I'm not one of those guys who thinks we need one of those young, hot shot, innovative offensive coordinators to be our head coach.  Yes, some have had success, but the verdict is still out on many.  If given the choice between having Zim as our head coach and Stefanski, I'd still take Zim.  In general, I think coaches and quarterbacks are given too much blame for failure and too much credit for success.  However, you can always find exceptions. 

It was kinda funny... In Zim's press conference this morning he said he spent an hour talking with Parcells about how to get the team over the hump.  (He prolly should have had the conversation a week or so ago, but that is a different issue.)  And he admitted that he did lots of things different this year.  Reading between the lines he seemed to be saying that he had his player's backs more this year compared to previous seasons when he frequently called players out in news conferences.

Zim is a good coach and I never got the impression the players stopped playing for him.  Further, I won'd say that Zim got out-coached Saturday - the team got out-played - and it certainly wasn't as simple as Zim allowing Stefanski to call more naked bootleg plays for Cousins.  We just got beat.

Just curious - and I'm not trying to flame anyone - but if you could have anyone as a head coach for THIS roster (with next year's offseason moves), who would you guys want?

“Let me say something: As long as I’m in this f***ing job, [Bob] Schnelker will be the offensive coach.
There will be no quest—f***ing about that. No f***ing questions about that.
I don’t like to name names after a f***ing, after a f***ing game.
But we can’t be responsible for the blocking, we can’t be responsible for the f***ing guys jumping offside,
we can’t be responsible for fu—we get down there, and it was a dumb play by [Alfred] Anderson.
I love Anderson.
But it was a dumb f***ing play when his shoe was coming off, up to the line of scrimmage, we were hollering to take [a] timeout.
We had a f***ing trap play called, and his f***ing shoe comes off.
That ain’t Bob Schnelker’s fault.
We had another f***ing trap play, and if [Rick] Fenney picks up his f***ing feet, he walks in.
We got the f***ing pass to AC [Anthony Carter] out there in the flat, and that ball’s thrown low.
That ain’t Schnelker’s fault.


But seriously, of today's coaching pool, who would you want?   :confused:

I'm ok with Zimmer.  I just wish he would let the OC alone.   Why even have a DC when it seems that Zimmer makes most or all of the calls.  I get it.  They need one to work with the players in practice and more.  The last game's play calling was terrible.  I am no football expert but when you keep Cousins in the pocket pretty much all game you will lose.  He is not a good pocket passer with the performance of the OL that day.  Even Cook was running into a brick wall all game.  Didn't take atvantage of our recievers and so on.  Sure Cousins didn't have much time to pass, and that again was the result of our OL play that day.  No QB could win that day with that line.  Also Spielman made a great move getting our center in the draft.  Now he needs more big body's.  We do have a couple others we got in the draft who will step up next season.  Rhodes needs to go period.  Same with Tray Wanes.  I would like to see Kubiak get the OC job.  But would he want it?  I think that is their first choice and then there is Shurmer.    As far as seeing a better head coach right now that's available?  Don't see one.  good luck.

Couldn't agree more RH.  That Josh McDaniels that is O coordinator for the Patriots would be a good guy to have as a head coach.  Young and very smart.  I too used to be bothered all week until the next game when we lost.  I don't anymore. (or I try not to)

Josh McDaniels was a disaster as a head coach for the Broncos.  I wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole.  The only reason he is succeeding is cause he is with the Patriots and no one on the team dares to challenge Belecheck or Brady.  As long as McDaniels keeps those two happy, he'll be fine.

That's right I forgot about that.

Yes, from the outside looking in, it seems like Zim can be a meddler.  And I think that is part of what Kubiak does - he tempers Zim.  Zim used to have Tony Sparano to use as a sounding board for all things offense.  Zim was kind of lost from an offensive perspective with DeFilippo the year Sparano died.

Yes, I'd love to have Shurmer back as OC.  There are plenty of examples of OCs who got hired as head coaches, but didn't make it, and are now OCs or offensive consultants again:  Scott Linehan, Brad Childress.  I'm sure there are plenty of others from other teams in the league too.  (Sadly, I just saw an article that says Shurmer is signed as the Bronco's OC.)

In terms of play calling Saturday...  It has to be more complicated than we armchair quarterbacks make it out to be.  I just think our offensive line got out-played and Cousins ain't they kind of guy who can win a game by himself.  And there ain't many QBs in the league who can win games by themselves:  Rodgers, Mahomes, Jackson, Wilson, and maybe Brees.  I don't think I'm missing anyone.

Yes, and when Brad Childress was coach, they also let Mike Tomlin get away - who (as a defensive-minded head coach) had immediate success.
And so as not to let lightning strike three times, they fired Chilly and promoted DC Leslie Frazier to head coach.
Frazier was a good coach and a nice guy, but not the right head coach for the Vikes at the time.
Now Frazier is doing well again as the Bills DC.

Would Jason Garret be better than Zim?
Would you have preferred McCarthy or Rivera?

Lots of $ tied up in Zimmer's defense so not a lot of cap space left for the offense.  :rolleyes: Thielen, Diggs, Rudolph, & Cousins are getting a good share of that.

Sideline reporter and former Vikings linebacker Ben Leber suggested that Diggs might make good trade bait.  Diggs more so than Thielen because Diggs is faster.

He also noted there was so much cap space tied up in QB and WRs, which didn't make sense for a team that wanted to make the run and play action pass a major part of its identity.

Maybe the Patriots would take Diggsie off our hands in exchange for some help with our O-Line, D-line and/or draft picks.

Still, you hate to deal with Belicheck, cause you're afraid he knows something you don't, and you don't want to get stuck with damaged goods.

What ever happened to the days when Spielman would fleece teams in trades:  Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin?  I wish there was more.

Lately it seems we've been the ones getting fleeced.  Kicker Vedvig comes to mind immediately.

They are going to do something with that cap space.  So far I see Rhodes, Rudolf, and Griffith gone.  Hate to see Diggs gone.  He has a bad attitude at times [penalized 15 yards for throwing his helmet] pouting on the sidelines.  But he makes up for it with some great plays and always wants that ball.  good luck.

I think with Stefanski it's more about wanting a head coaching job than working with Zimmer.  That's what all of these coaches want to be.  A head coach.  Stefanski knows he is going to get the No. 1 pick in the draft and I think he will pick LSU's QB.  Plus he is taking the Vikings DC and defensive back's coach with him which he has known for a long time.  Shurmer left also to be a head coach and now he is available for OC but probably go to Denver.  good luck.

Despite the fact that the Vikes go through O-coordinators like nobody's business, I don't think there is a shortage of people who would want to work with Zim. 

I don't think we give Zim enough credit.  Everyone gives him grief for "forcing" his offensive coordinator to stay dedicated to the run.  He knows better than anyone what Cousins' limitations are and understands that without play action, Cousins isn't very good. 

Yes, losing Stefanski will be a hit - just like it was a hit when we lost Shurmer - but all teams take hits.  The fact that the Vikes keep losing offensive coordinators as head coaches indicates that maybe Spielman and Zim are doing something right.  But unfortunately hires like Norv Turner and DiFilippo shoot my argument down.

I think we have the 25th pick in the first round.  Don't know about the rest of the picks.  So for us to get a decent QB for a pick is slim but they could trade upward.  Someone could want Diggs bad enough to give the Vikings a better spot but it would involve some players as well if it was me to make the deal.  But that's what is fun about being a fan and wishing and wanting and guessing what will happen.  good luck.

I can't see us trading up to get a QB unless the deal is too good to be true.

I'd rather find a stud for the o-line and worry about a QB next season when Cousins comes off the books.

A big part of the winning formula these days is getting a good QB on a rookie deal so you have money to spend on other assets.  If you plan to "red shirt" a rookie QB, that is one less year your window is open for building a team around him.

I even enjoy the draft and the hype up to it.  At least we can think about the team improving.  I do watch it too.  We have this Jake Browning guy on our practice squad that the Vikes just gave an extension or something like that.  He played in Washington and I don't know anything about him.  Zim will be intimidated by him if he looks good in preseason and get rid of him.

I rarely ever watch it.  I may tune in for a few minutes just to see the festivities.  They should eliminate the game and just show them having fun.  Well I guess that is what it is....  They enjoy bringing their families, seeing other players, and just having fun.  That's what Alex Boone was just talking about.  Plus they get paid good for it too.

I don't think us fans will ever have enough information to separate Kubiak's and Stefanski's contributions to last years successes and failures. 

And yes, we won't find a better QB than Cousins for next year.

I think it is on Spielman now to draft, trade, buy, or keep the players to fit Zim's system and make it better.

Post by: glenn57 on January 27, 2020, 02:10:46 PM
so did anyone else watch the Pro Bowl????????? they tried a new rule in the game that i thought was pretty cool. apparently statistics show the majority of concussions come on kicks and/or punts.

not sure as i didnt catch it but if the team is losing, and scores and is still behind with only so much time left on the clock, maybe 3 minutes, maybe 2????? instead of doing this off side kick stuff, which isnt very successful the team gets the ball on the 25 yardline. its considered a 4th and 15 yards for a first down. if you complete the 15 yards or first down you keep the ball. if not the opposing team gets the ball.

of course thats when our choke of a QB  threw an interception!!!!!!! :pouty: :pouty:

Post by: Steve-o on January 27, 2020, 02:33:42 PM
Man, I hope they don't replace the on-side kick play with 4th and 15.

First, what was the old success ratio for on-side kicks before they changed the rules.  Not very good, but they were successful occasionally in desperation scenarios.

After they changed the kick-off rules - kicking team can't overload one side of the ball and can't run up to the kick - onside kicks are virtually never successful now.

If they change the rule, what are the odds of converting 4th down and 15 yards to go?
How about if you are an elite passing offense playing against a "prevent" defense that is back on their heels after just allowing a score?
I don't know the exact answer, but I'll bet the odds of converting on 4th and 15 are better than on-side kicks ever were.

I know I'm a scarred and jaded Vikings fan, but I can see this rule adding two additional losses to our season every year.  :doah:

Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: glenn57 on January 27, 2020, 02:38:43 PM
i like it!!!!!!!!!! just to be clear its not the opponents 25. its the same 25 yardline iffin the kicker kicks it out of the end zone.

Was listening to SKOR North which is old KSTP 1500 radio.  Online it is just SKOR.  I go back and forth from KFAN to these guys.  It is Vikings talk from 2 - 4 every afternoon.  Usually goes later than that.  Still talking Vikes now.  They are talking Doleman stuff too.   They had an interview with Darin Nelson and asked him about Doleman.  He said he was fun in the locker room and that at one time he started to carry a briefcase.  Noone was going to say anything to a tough guy like him but they wondered what was in the briefcase.  It was lunch!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:  He also said that when the D line did their running drills it was funny cuz Doleman was so far ahead of all of the other guys as he was so fast and athletic.  LOL

I heard Chris Carter on a radio interview talking about Doleman last night.  I didn't catch all of it, but Carter was talking about a pilgrimage they were on together to the Holy Land, re-baptized in the Jordan River, etc.  My guess is that somewhere along the way Doleman might have had a conversion of sorts which changed his perspective and outlook on life.  RIP

Number one I do like her show,  just haven't watched it much lately for no reason at all.  I like the 30 minute meal deal and may watch that more often.  She laid taco chips on a cookie sheet, shredded a rotisserie chicken from the store.  Then covered it with cheese, then picante type sauce, then more cheese jalapenos, etc.  Then baked it for 15 minutes.  Looked great!    And the word on the street has always been that her and her husband always had an open marriage and would see other people.  Can't see that working for long and wondered which one instigated that arrangement.

I've been hearing that too.  And Shanahan from San Fran wanted to get Cousins before we did.  So a trade for Garapalo is possible too.  I would like that and to also have Teddy for backup.  Long shot.  Would be fun to have Teddy back but man I worry about him getting hurt.

Sporting News Ranked the top Free Agent QBs...

Ranking 2020 NFL free-agent QBs, from Tom Brady to Drew Brees to Ryan Tannehill (https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/nfl-free-agent-quarterbacks-2020-ranking/jexwo8bxito918v7j5llki551)

Even if they could find someone to take Kirk off our hands in the last year of his deal, I don't think the options are as appealing as everyone makes them sound.

Dak Prescott, Cowboys, Age: 26 - Cowboy's will Franchise Tag Him

Drew Brees, Saints, Age: 41 - I'll bet he retires if the Saints don't want to sign him back.

Tom Brady, Patriots, Age: 42 - Don't know where he will end up, but I don't think he'd want to be in Minnesota and I wouldn't want him either.

Ryan Tannehill, Titans, Age: 32 - Titans can't/won't let this guy go.

Jameis Winston, Buccaneers, Age: 26 - Wouldn't touch him.

Philip Rivers, Chargers, Age: 38 - He reminds me of a much older Kirk Cousins - usually good, but never great.

Teddy Bridgewater, Saints, Age: 27 - He is the devil we know!  I still think he has plenty of up-side, but I don't know if he would come back after being let go after the injury.  My favorite option.

Marcus Mariota, Titans, Age: 26 - Another guy I wouldn't touch.  Benched for Tannehill.

Case Keenum, Redskins, Age: 31 - I was on the Keenum bandwagon after Kirk stunk up Year One of his three year deal, but I've since gone cold on Case.  He and the Vikes caught lightning in a bottle for the better part of half a season, but I that ain't happening again.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on February 17, 2020, 01:56:42 PM
Ya I pretty much agree.  I am not a big Cousins fan but there are not many options.  Of course it would be fun to draft someone but that is not an instant winning deal neither.   
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on February 17, 2020, 02:08:41 PM
Yep, the best formula for NFL success is to draft a "Franchise QB" on his rookie deal so you can outspend the other teams for the best position players.

But drafting a QB is no sure thing.  1/2 of them don't pan out at all, and of the ones that do, only a select few are good enough to lead a team through the playoffs in their first couple of seasons.

So what do you all think about the Cousins to SF trade?  I am all for it.  This doesn't seem like the team for him.  Maybe we get Garapalo?  Man he was really talked up during the draft.  Has a great winning percentage.  I did hear them say he doesn't throw well outside of the hash marks.  Maybe that can be fixed??   Or do they try to get Teddy back?  Can't help but like him but is he that good???  Maybe.  Hasn't happened that but looks highly possible now.

  :tut: TE Morgan too, they freed up nearly $19 mil in cap space with Rhodes & Joseph being released. Going to cost 'em a little over $7 mil in dead money though. Knew Rhodes was gone but they were a little unsure of Joseph, last I heard.

Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on March 13, 2020, 03:26:02 PM
It's money that they spend on players who are no longer on the team but still counts against the salary cap. Mostly guaranteed money like the $28 mil they'd have to pay Cousins this season to not be on the team. :evil: :nerd: :nerd: There's some buy out clauses in some of the contracts too but I'm not sure :scratch: how that counts against the cap.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on March 13, 2020, 04:41:41 PM
So this is appx.  Rhodes is due 12 mil and that means 8 mil for us in cap space and there is 4 mil in dead cap space.  Maybe it was Joseph but just as an example.  What does that imply?

I agree on Rhodes, he was due $12.9 next year & that's way too much for a CB who ranked very near the bottom of the league. They still owe him $4.8 so they save a shade over $8 mil on the cap. The #'s I found on Joseph were $10.5/$2.4 mil & I agree with RH that they could easily bring him back as he played pretty well again last season but only if he's willin to sign for less.

Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on March 16, 2020, 11:12:02 AM
The deal...

"According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, it's a two-year extension worth $66 million. Coupled with the final year of his deal in 2020, the total value is $96 million over three years, including $61 million guaranteed."

"Cousins' new deal will add $10 million to Minnesota's cap space, according to Tom Pelissero."

So doing some math...

Kurt originally signed a unprecedented $84 million, fully guaranteed contract.  He was scheduled to make $29.5 million guaranteed in 2020.

The new deal is worth $96 million ($29.5 for 2020 + $66 for the extension), but now only $61 million is guaranteed over the next 3 year - not the full $96 million.

And assuming $29.5M of the $61M is still guaranteed for 2020, that means that only $31.5 million of the $66M extension is guaranteed.

What does all of this mean?  I think it means it will be easier to get rid of Cousins in the last year of his extended deal if things don't work out.

And with the salary cap going up with 17 games, $30 million per year will likely be the going rate for a slightly-above-average QB.

Plus, if the team gets $10 million in salary cap relief this year, it seems like a pretty team friendly deal to me.  With no one better on the horizon to replace Kirk, this deal makes sense to me.

Well Buffalo had the 22 nd pick and we have the 25th I think so two first round picks are always nice.   The other extra picks will be great also.  I think this is a good move for the team.  Diggs seemed moody and not happy last year.  He wanted more play time so now he has it.  Harris I think will be traded also even though he was named protected player.  That's another rumer.  Has to do with cap space and a lot of teams have interest in him.  Maybe even more draft picks to come.  good luck.

Spielman Strikes Again!

Bills get Diggs and Vikings seventh-round draft pick in 2020.
Vikes get the Bills first-round, fifth-round and sixth-round picks in 2020 and a fourth-round pick in 2021.

I'd say the Vikes got the long end of the stick in this deal.

How long do you think it will take before Diggs becomes a frustrated malcontent in Buffalo?  We should start a pool.

This move is almost Bellichekian!  I think this is why the Vikes keep Spielman.  He also maximized the value trading Percy Harvin and Sydney Rice.

I would think noone is enjoying this and laughing harder than Case Keenum.  We have spent over 100 million dollars on a QB that Zim and Rick thought was going to light it up here.  Just cuz Zim didn't like Case!  Trying to do better than the year Case was here.  Ain't gonna happen for many years the way I see it.  Now we are in complete rebuilding mode.  Not much going to happen here until we get a real QB and the team gets back to the attitude and chemistry we had 3 years ago.  We aren't even close to that now.  As we saw, players are confused about what their assignments even are, especially on the D.  Coaches have come and gone to no avail.  What is the common denominator?  Zim and Rick.

I heard that Buffalo is also a team that is trying to establish the run first to open the passing game.  And I can't say that Josh Allen is any better than Capt. Kirk.

Alexander's a FA also & could be leavin as well. That leaves only Hughes & Hill with any experience at CB. Good thing Harris & Smith are good behind 'em. That really puts a cramp on Zim's defense when you don't have a corner that can play man coverage so the safeties, Smith in particular, are forced to play deep almost all the time. :pouty: I'd be real surprised if they don't sign a FA DB because of that.

Hill is 6' 2" & ~ 200 lbs like Waynes is so they both matched up better with the 6-3 210-220 WR's in the league these days. Where as both Alexander & Hughes are quite a bit smaller,~ 5-10/180-190, & givin up a lot in size.

Looks like it's gonna be $27 mil for 3 years with $18 mil guaranteed which is really close to what Joseph was due this season. :cool: Pierce is 4 years younger though. I see where they received an extra 3 extra picks for the FA players they lost to begin last season, 1 of which is a 3rd rounder. So 10 picks overall. :happy1:

Not so sure if they'll move up or not :scratch: as I read an article where Spielman really likes those late round picks & has had real good results with 'em. They had 6 picks last year that were 6th round or later & 5 of them made the team. The 6th made the practice squad.  :happy1: I believe they said that they have five 7th round picks this year & 11 or 12 picks total, depending on who you listen to. I see they now have Alexander signing a 1 year deal with the Bengals so we're really thin in the secondary now. :doah: The OL can use help too, like always, but I read that Reiff could be a cap casualty as well.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on March 20, 2020, 02:15:50 PM
I guess I was thinking about that year when Spielman moved up to snag three players in the the first round.

The advantage to doing that, is the team has the 5th year option on the rookie contract.  So if they are good, you get to keep em for an extra year.

Turns out the year I was thinking of was back in 2013 when they drafted Sharrif Floyd, Xavier Rhodes, and Cordarrelle Patterson.

Now that I look at the names, with the departure of Rhodes, the players are all ancient history.  Floyd (injury?) and Patterson (???) never reached their full, but I do remember everyone universally praising Spielman for snagging three starters in the first round.

I'm sure a lot of these moves are just because they have no cap space. I'm of the belief that they were hopin to resign some of them, Joseph & Griffen to name a couple, but just couldn't make the #'s work. Other teams showed more interest so they're gone. :pouty:

If we just signed a WR from the Titans, I can't see us drafting another one in the 1st round, when - apparently - WR position is deep in this draft.

This is Zimm, remember?  He's goona want another corner back.  I still don't think we have enough offensive linemen and the defensive line still needs help.  All that being said, we'll probably draft a hybrid linebacker.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on March 25, 2020, 02:10:12 PM
His career stats: 47 games played, 92 catches for 1167 yds in 4 years. That doesn't really sound like a guy who's going to replace Diggs to me. :scratch: I do agree on needing help at CB too but their record with drafting those that high isn't very good. :tut:  :pouty:
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on March 25, 2020, 05:07:29 PM
Yes, Diggs is hard to replace, buy you can't give big contracts to your QB, TE, RB, some O-Line guys AND pay two receivers high end contracts - especially since Zimm/Kubiak want to run the ball.  Something has to give.  And the guy with the biggest mouth and the biggest paycheck is usually the first to go.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on March 25, 2020, 07:37:18 PM
I think the Diggs trade was a good 1 but they still need a WR that can stretch the D IMO. If not they'll be facing a lot 8-9 man fronts on the early downs & facing a lot of 3rd & longs with Thielen gettin double teamed most of the time. Tough to make a livin doin that in the NFL. Rookie deals aren't usually that expensive either.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on March 26, 2020, 08:51:06 AM
Granted their recent historyof drafting WR's in the 1st round is the best either. Just look at Harvin, Patterson, & Treadwell but I don't think they have any choice if they are going to score at least 20 a game. Which with the # of defensive FA's that have left they will have to do to win IMO. :scratch:

First round wide receiver draft picks...

1965 Jack Snow (*who?*)
1967 Gene Washington (*win*)
1998 Randy Moss (*big win*)
2005 Troy Williamson (*big bust*)
2009 Percy Harvin (*win - head case, but he played good for us and we traded him at the height of his value*)
2013 Cordarrelle Patterson (*meh - dynamic when he got the ball in space/kick returns, but was a bust as a receiver*)
2016 Laquon Treadwell (*bust*)
Title: Re: Vikes thread!

I remember Jack Snow playing for the Rams. Drafted by the Vikings but traded to the Rams before he ever played for the Vikes. Not sure who/what they got in return. Had a decent career. Think he wound up ~ #30 all time on receiving yards. Considering he played fewer game seasons that's not all bad.

I see where Rhodes signed a 1 year deal with the Colts, bet he didn't get anywhere near the $12.9 mil he was due if he stayed a Viking. Also heard that Goodell sent a memo to all 32 teams that the league is going ahead with plans for a 4/23 draft, so get ready. No fans or players will be allowed to attend. They will have to do it outside of team facilities that are all closed now & if teams criticize the league's decision they can be disciplined.

He threw for 3800 yds & completed 70% of his passes last year at Oklahoma, rushed for another 1300 yds. They were talking about where he'll go in the draft this am & Kiper is now sayin he'll be gone by the end of round 2. NE & Pittsburgh were mentioned as possible landing spots.

Thanks for the update.  Since I've been sheltering-in-place I haven't been getting my sports radio fix during my commutes.

I guess this isn't surprising.  "Skill" players are always worried about getting paid and getting touches and often times their mercurial attitudes often make them lightening rods for controversy and criticism.

But reading the article, is sounds like Cook gets it.  He knows business is business.  Yes, he is missing a friend, but I guess I take him at his word that he doesn't know specifically why Diggs wanted out.


In other topics related to star players wanting off teams when they might have been better off staying ...


I heard a Jim Hanneman Timberwolves interview over the weekend.  He related a story where he had a chance to have an impromptu interview with Stephon Marbury.  He says they had a great conversation and Stephon admitted regret for not sticking it out with the Wolves when he and Garnett were poised to be a force to be reckoned with in the West Division for years to come.  :doah:
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: LPS on April 14, 2020, 12:24:52 PM
I always thought Diggsy's frustrations were that he is running down the field the whole game and Quirk isn't throwing him the ball even when he is wide open.  Can't deny he was open quite a few times when Quirk didn't throw to him.  He relishes catching the ball when guys are on him.  I see it partly Quirks fault that Diggsy left here.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on April 14, 2020, 12:58:58 PM
Zimmer had a big hand in getting Kubiak, Stefanski, & Cousins to think like that too IMO. :tut: Cousins lack of confidence in the O line's protection factored in there as well.. Sure Cousins could've done a lot better job of getting him the ball but Diggs getting in Zimm's doghouse fairly early in the season wasn't a good thing either. Josh Allen has a really strong arm & throws the deep ball very well, better than the touch passes in fact. I wouldn't be surprised to see Diggs have a big year in Buffalo.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on April 14, 2020, 01:01:11 PM
And so Josh Allen's career completion percentage of 56.3 is going to make Diggs the household name he wants to be?

Good luck.

Yes, it drives receivers bat-$#!t when quarterbacks miss them when they are running wide open, but I'll hazard a guess that it might have been Cousins' even-keel, unemotional, golly-gee-wizz leadership style that caused Diggsy so much frustration.  After all, Diggs did just get paid here.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on April 14, 2020, 01:18:49 PM
If you listen to any of the WR's on TV now they'll all tell you they're open on every play too. :doah: That was the knock on Allen coming out college too, low %/no touch, & probably the main reason he fell to the Bills in the draft in the 1st place. I don't think anybody expected the Bills to have the season they did last year either. That being said I have to agree with you about Cousins leadership style drivin Diggs  :crazy:.

Hey, if the Browns trade him, that would be 3 different teams in 3 years.

Especially considering how much talent he has, that speaks of nothing but trouble.

And note how the price has gone down on him since the trade to the Browns last season.

"... sees the Browns acquire Beckham and defensive end Olivier Vernon in exchange for right guard Kevin Zeitler, safety Jabrill Peppers, Cleveland's 2019 first-round pick (No. 17 overall) and a 2019 third-round pick (No. 95 overall)."

And OBJ is even more mercurial than Diggsie.

Heck, I'd give 'em a 5th round pick just so we don't gotta take him.

 I agree Steve-o, he's just like AB & there's not much interest being shown in him either. They're both :crazy: :pouty: The way Zimmer is I'd be  :shocked: if they sign him.  :scratch: Spielman must have an OK of some sort though for it even to be getting discussed. :confused:

Give them $1 for him like we did for Chris Carter back when he was a problem child.  That woke him up.  He straightened out when he got here knowing how low his price got.

That's one good way to deal with a problem child. Take away their allowance!  :happy1:

Now I see that that trade may not happen.  Has to do with how much money he wants of course.  good luck.

They had a clip on this morning of the Browns GM & he said that there was no truth too it & certainly wasn't started by anyone in their front office. So I believe LPS is spot on.

Ya Steve,  I'm getting sick of all of the draft predictions every day.  They are bored.  Some people really are missing sports for sure.  I'll just go out and fish more.  But I do like it when there is actual news from the Vikings.  Very interested in the 12 draft picks with two first round picks.  good luck.

I usually turn on KFAN or SKOR North when I am on the computer or doing other projects.  It is usually fun too.  BUT now it is getting over the top wasted talk.  That has to really be hard for them to sit for their whole show and talk about the same ol things.

Before all this crap hit the fan a small group of us used to gather at the office and play the initals game on Friday mornings. Looking forward to getting the chance to do that again.  :happy1:

They (sports talk show hosts) throw more crap against the wall then internet trollers. Which, if you think about it is really saying something.

I couldn't care less what the Vikings do. When and if a season rolls around I guess we will see who they lost and who they got.

Starts Thursday, looked at Kiper's latest mock draft today & he had 'em takin a WR from Ariz St 1st, a CB from Utah 2nd. It also had the 1st OL to go being the Hawkeyes Jr tackle Tristan Wirfs

Looking forward to it.  Will be at home anyways.  I remember the first time I sat and listened to the Draft.  I stayed awake all night and it is slow.  A pick every 15 minutes I think.  The Vikes were at the end of the draft that night.  I hung in there.  Well it comes to the Vikes pick which was late 20's or early 30's and here they traded their draft pick so no pick that night.  LOLOLOL   BUT I will be watching.  Sting song!!

Yes, I remember that draft.  That sucked SOOOOO much.

I think it was 2017.  Our top three picks that year were Dalvin Cook (2nd rnd), Pat Elflein (3rd rnd), and Jaleel Johnson (4th round).

Post by: LPS on April 20, 2020, 07:52:33 PM
I think that is the one S-O.  Waited all night.  I will stay up till the end this year too.  Something to look forward to in this time of lack of things to look forward to.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on April 20, 2020, 08:29:13 PM
Had to look it up to refresh my memory.

We started out with the 14th pick and Spielman kept trading down and then finally out of the 1st round.  It was really frustrating, but Spielman knows what he is doing.

In picks 1-13 that year, 7 of them became pro bowlers:  Miles Garret, Mitch Trubisky, Jamal Adams, Christian McCaffery, Patcrick Mahomes, Marshon Lattimore, and Deshaun Watson - all off the board before the Vikings would have picked at 14.

We eventually traded down to the 41st pick (in the 2nd round) and took Calvin Cook.  Between picks 14 and 41, over the span of 27 players, only 5 of them made the pro bowl - and we got one of them.

Here are the players we missed out on because we traded down: Derek Barnett, Malik Hooker, Marlon Humphrey, Jonathan Allen, Adoree' Jackson, O. J. Howard, Garett Bolles, Jarrad Davis, Charles Harris, Evan Engram, Gareon Conley, Jabrill Peppers, Takkarist McKinley, Tre'Davious White, Taco Charlton, David Njoku, T. J. Watt, Reuben Foster, Ryan Ramczyk, Kevin King, Cam Robinson, Malik McDowell, Budda Baker, Zay Jones, Forrest Lamp, Marcus Maye, Curtis Samuel, and finally Dalvin Cook.

I'm sure there are some solid football players in that list, and I don't follow the league like a lot of fantasy wonks, but as a casual fan, I don't see any household names on that list that I think we should have had instead of Dalvin Cook.

I agree SO.  I don't see anyone there that I recognize.  I too think Spielman is pretty good at what he does.  I do see an OL and QB lull that would be nice to address though.  BUT should be a fun draft.  We have a lot of ammo to deal with.   :happy1: :happy1:  And yes that trading down is what kept me watching now that you mentioned it.  LOL
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: dutchboy on April 20, 2020, 08:59:39 PM
Just remember, for all the accolades Spielman & Zimmer get they have won nothing. They do their jobs and for the most part the players are good citizens if that counts for anything.

Will they be better than the Packers & Bears in 2020?  Time will tell.

The "experts" are still sayin a WR & CB with the 1st 2 picks, then maybe an OL & a DT, guess :scratch: we'll see soon.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Gunner55 on April 24, 2020, 07:41:29 AM
Really like the last minute trade with SF. :happybounce: SF moved up 6 spots to get their guy & the Vikes got their next to last 1st round pick & 2 more. Many were surprised to see Jefferson, WR/LSU, still there at #22, & the CB from TCU they got is thought highly of as well.  :cool: I expect them to go for some help on the OL & a DT that can eventually take some of Joseph's minutes in today's rounds.
Title: Re: Vikes thread!
Post by: Steve-o on April 24, 2020, 07:45:56 AM
Yep, Spielman moving down is a classic move.  I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't use those two new picks to move back up to get the next guy they want if they are fearful he might go before they can take 'em.

Post by: LPS on April 24, 2020, 09:16:21 AM
The picks they got are in the 140 range.  I saw the first pick but when they traded down I went to bed.  It was 8 minutes between picks last night.  I think it is 5 minutes tonight so will go faster.  Hope we get
