OK, I thought he was injured.  I always liked Ryan.  Great competitor.  good luck.

Ya, and to top that off, no young QB for the future that I can see.  This is why I didn't like them cutting Slotter.  Are they hoping they will luck out in the draft or are they going to get QBs who are veterans later and hope for the best every so many years.  We need a QB that will be us for years, not just for one contract.  good luck.

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

Brett Favre IS TO Mike Childress
AS
Case Keenuym and Kyle Sloter ARE TO Mike Zimmer

Perhaps neither coach likes gun-slinger quarterbacks.

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.

It will be interesting to see what happens when the run attack stops working.  Then what?   :confused:

There was a guest on KFAN this morning that is an NFL expert???    He said what we finally learned is that the less Cousins is involved in the offense the better we will be.  ????  But we will have to use him eventually.

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.

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.

As long is there isn't an uptick in his fumbles, keeping him at the #1 spot in the NFL for them. :rolleyes:

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.

that simply means GB is the home team by the 3 point spread. Based on how each team played last week I can't believe the odds are that close. :crazy:
