Re: What is your minimum definition of success for the 2018-19 season?

I'll go with playoff berth as well. Plus a strong showing in the postseason. I don't think they need to win it all but they can't get embarrassed again either.

Re: Dalvin Cook breakdown and expectations

He fell because of injury concerns (ball security and off field issues too but that's more tertiary IMO). In that respect, he's very much going to be a boom or bust type of pick. If he stays healthy, I can see him being one of the tops in the league. Or he's similar to a guy like Bob Sanders, who ha...

Re: Cornerbacks, Salary Cap, and more

The other consideration is if we pay Diggs, Thielen is going to be vastly underpaid. I mean, he already is but it will be more magnified if Diggs gets a big paycheck. Thielen seems like a standup guy, lifelong Viking fan, but this is still his livelihood. I'm not saying he's going to make a fuss abo...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I dont see Compton starting. But if he does I would think it's where you said. I would guess either Reiff, Easton, Elflein, Remmers and Hill OR Reiff, Easton, Elflein, Remmers and O'Neill. They didnt take O'Neill in the 2nd for him to sit the bench. We'll see but early reports indicate O'Neill isn'...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

At this point, how do you think you would arrange the 2018 starting OL for the Vikings using the players currently on the roster? Or if you'd rather, who do you predict to be starting along the OL in Week 1? Not addressed to me but my guess is Reiff-Easton-Elflein-Compton-Remmers. I really think Re...

Re: Cornerbacks, Salary Cap, and more

No secret Zim likes his corners and he keeps a lot of them on the roster. I think we keep 6 corners and 4 safeties. I agree with you that Kearse has done well in ST's and I think that earns him his spot. Harris looked okay in relief when Sendejo went down. I could see Sherels spot in jeopardy given ...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I think if they make the playoffs no one is getting fired, I don't see this as a SB or bust type situation although they are definitely in win now mode (as are the other major contenders like the Rams). But an 8-8 season? I don't know, we might see some heads roll. I agree we shouldn't have an 8-8 s...

Re: Updating the Traveling/Game Attending Advice

Ah yes, thanks Ohjay! They have a crazy beer selection and it's part of our annual pilgrimage. I think I've been to 8th St Grill, is that the one with the umbrella seats outside? Definitely a Packers bar if so.

Hell's Kitchen seems popular for breakfast but it's always so crowded we just pass.

Re: Coming from Massachusetts to see my first Vikings game

Club seats you have an actual club you enter before going to your seats. There's food, drinks, and bathrooms only for people in that section. There's also seats/couches and giant TV screens. The seats themselves offer a very good vantage point but you are fairly high up. If you want to be close to t...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

Maybe. If Cousins flops then good luck finding the GM that wouldn't have made that move if they were in Spielman's place. Seemed like almost a league wide consensus good move. I literally googled "Vikings cousins bad move" and the first thing that comes up talks about how perfect the match is. When...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

I doubt his job is tagged to Cousins. That line of thinking has been used with Ponder, with Teddy, etc. Last year there was talk of it being tagged to the OL. Those are not remotely similar. We gave Cousins $84M. Guaranteed. All of it. If he flops, its going to be hard to justify keeping a GM who m...

Re: Vikings Draft Picks

At the end of the day, Spielman's job is tied to Cousins. If Cousins flops, Spielman will be gone. Doesn't matter if that's fair, how he built the roster, etc., that's what will happen. So if Spielman misjudged the strength of the OL and Cousins doesn't have any protection, he's basically sealed his...

Re: 2018 Vikings Free Agency Thread

@TomPelissero (Tom Pelissero): Former #Saints and #Colts DT David Parry is visiting the #Vikings today, source said. He has off field issues and is coming off an injury but the cupboard is bare for NT's right now. He could be depth behind Linval assuming he can get his act together and stay healthy.
