    Bware's guy is actually a selfish cunt?

    It hasn't been that bizarre . He was good while he was healthy sans the New Orleans game. As for his answer--I'm not at all surprised. He's not the type to hear that kind of criticism and then completely deny it and act like he can't improve himself. He's the kind of guy who can learn from it. The entire piece surely isn't accurate--this is the American media we're talking about. His reliance on Ertz was certainly Romo-Witten-esque. The main problem with the report is that the individual who expressed it didn't keep it in house. I hope they know who it was and I hope they gave Carson the chance to say, "hey, he and I can talk about this and move forward." I hope they don't just cut whoever it was.

    Cherry's 2019 Scouting Notebook/BS thread

    You have Stick way too high. Taryn Christion/Gage Gubrud are better prospects out of the FCS. What am I missing?

    And elite arm talent is what Jensen lacked, too. He and Stick could sling it 60 yards on a deep ball, but neither can toss a 15 yard out on a rope. That's why Jensen had no future in the league. It's why Stick has no future in the league.

    Either way, he sucked all week in practice. Not terrible in the game. 5/8 with a TD, but that came after an INT. Nothing good from the other 2 drives. He's going to embarrass himself at the combine. Easton Stick was elevated by superior teammates and coaching. He is not an NFL prospect. He's less of a prospect than Brock Jensen was. In today's NFL, elite arm talent is a necessity. He doesn't have it.

    I hate to be right about this, but Easton Stick was terrible in Senior Bowl practice all week and didn't even play--maybe even didn't dress--today. Not even close to enough velocity on his throws. In the context of the NFL, honestly he sucks. Draft stock gone.

    I'm not a fan of "Unnamed Sources," and never have been. Who would it even be? It's not like he actually ignored other targets. They weren't open as often as this piece claims. Alshon Jeffery was banged up all season, too, and this is not something he'd do based on his character. Nelson Agholor disappeared regardless of who was at QB. Mack Hollins was hurt. Mike Wallace was hurt. Dallas Goedert isn't going to talk nonsense like this. Jordan Matthews sucks, but of course he's not one of these "Unnamed Sources." This is well above anything Jason Peters or Jason Kelce would ever do. So that pretty much leaves Agholor and maybe some backup tight ends behind Ertz and Goedert? Wendell fucking Smallwood? Isaac Seomalu? I mean, honestly, who would this have come from who's actually a relevant player?

    Multiple high-profile teammates have already shut this down as false. I'm not worried about it.

    NFCCG - Rams @ Saints

    I wish I felt bad for New Orleans. Obviously the missed call is terrible but New Orleans gets so much home-cooking on average and they are such a dirty team. As long as Payton has been there, they've been dirty. And as a Vikings fan, there's a lot of satisfaction in this for me because of all the missed calls in the 2009 NFCCG. In the broadcast today they talked about all the hits on Favre and made it sound like they were legal back then...they weren't. The league acknowledged that they missed multiple roughing the passer penalties against Favre. So fuck New Orleans. As for the whistles...the league needs to step on the throat of that shit. They also have to cut out the Fire Whistle in Chicago. Granted, that's the stadium doing that one. Yeah, fuck New Orleans.

    NFCCG - Rams @ Saints

    That no call was ridiculous. It's a bad day for the NFL when the crew with the best white hat in the business has a major fuckup. I hate the Saints, but there are no excuses for letting that play go.

    The Culture of the Pittsburgh Steelers

    Why the hell did it matter to AB who was voted team MVP? My god. They've got their replacement WR in Juju. Guys like Brown are cancers. Get rid of him. Clearly the Steelers aren't going to get rid of Mike Tomlin, but it's time to be a disciplinarian again. These guys are ridiculous. The Steelers are so careless. I mean, they had a guy celebrating a first down he didn't really even come close to in New Orleans. Dancing around like a putz.
  11. I disagree. Diggs and Thielen each had over 100 catches, almost 2500 yards between them, and 9 touchdowns apiece. Realistically, can Aaron Rodgers produce significantly more than that if he's constantly running for his life, getting hit constantly, and has no running game? Sometimes it doesn't matter how much better one player is than another at the quarterback position. A very, very bad offensive line can sabotage a team's success no matter the quarterback. No running game and terrible pass protection any time you play a great defensive front= limited success. Blame Flip for Minnesota's failures this year, if anyone. It's important to establish a rhythm and identity in the running game no matter how much struggle you have initially. Flip abandoned it almost every week even though we have Dalvin Cook and LaTavius Murray. The guy is a dumbass that sabotaged this season in Minnesota, plain and simple. Aaron Rodgers would not win a Super Bowl with this year's Vikings team. Last year's? Yes. This season's? No.
  12. Well, I watched him all year and he was never the cause of a loss. And his play was very good in most games. The media would rather put up the most eye-grabbing headline than actually evaluate the situation. Our OL sucked. Our playcalling sucked. What's the scouting report on Kirk Cousins? One of the best play-action QBs in the game. What did Flip do for 13 games? Abandon the run after barely trying it.
  13. Kirk Cousins is a lot better than mediocre at best. Come on. And I don't think it's either dumb or smart to fire Zimmer. The success is undeniable, even if it it's relative to the circumstances. But are the players all-in anymore? That's the question.
  14. Please pardon the TL;DR title Mike Zimmer is my favorite coach in the NFL. I was ecstatic when the Vikings hired him 5 years ago. I'm thrilled that he has lasted so long with the franchise. But after a disaster of a fifth season under the direction of Zimmer, I'm forced to ponder whether or not he is still the best guy for the job in Minnesota. My loyalty says Yes. He's phenomenal as a defensive coach. The Zfense (just give me this one--I can't believe it's never been called the Zfense) employs many of my favorite defensive concepts: A-gap blitzes, disguising the coverages by showing blitz, press coverage, to name a few. He is phenomenal with defensive backs. He's openly disciplinary. He is passionate and fiery and set in his ways. That last part is exactly why he may not be the best man for the job anymore. The hot-headed disciplinarian who doesn't shy away from publicly chastising those around him is pretty much a long-gone coaching technique. It's hard to keep an entire staff and 50some players in your corner when you conduct yourself like Zimmer does. Personally I think people need to expect to be held to such a high standard in this particular profession, but the softies will always melt under a coach like Zimmer and then shrink in big moments. What I'm basically saying is I feel as though a certain number of guys quit on Mike Zimmer this year. They began to quit in Philadelphia last January. It reared its ugly head throughout this season. From today to New England to Seattle to Buffalo all the way back in week 3. Things weren't going perfectly and guys shut down. All of that being said, when one looks at the sheer number of disastrous things Mike Zimmer has had to deal with since becoming coach in Minnesota, one can only marvel at the fact that the Vikings even had two successful seasons. Zimmer inherited a mess. Leslie Frazier fucked this defense up terribly, and Spielman missed badly on Christian Ponder. Then when Minnesota seemed to have found a promising young QB (albeit he was extremely overrated by the media) in Teddy Bridgewater, Teddy's knee randomly explodes before his third season. Cue Sam Bradford playing marginally well for a season, then a brilliant week 1 performance the following year and then his knee gives out. Cue Case Keenum staying hydrated with Holy Water and playing with Russell Wilson-esque good luck. But stud rookie RB Dalvin Cook tears his ACL one quarter into the season. Then Cousins. We finally have a QB. Things are looking up. Then our offensive line coach, one of the best in the league, dies unexpectedly (RIP Tony Sparano). Then our best interior lineman suffers a freak neck injury and is out for the season. Joe Berger, our other guard, had also retired. Two new guards, no stud center to start the season. Both tackles get hurt. Stud center comes back, but the guard play around him is so atrocious that he looks bad all year. The only good thing about our OL this year was rookie RT Bryan O'Neill. Everson Griffin has his mental health issues, misses 5 games. Linval Joseph, Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and Andrew Sendejo all miss multiple games with injuries. Stud first round CB Mike Hughes tears his ACL about a quarter of the way into the season. For the second year in a row, we lose our first round pick to an ACL tear only a few games into the season. How many offensive coordinators has Zimmer had? Bad kicking throughout his tenure, including from historically good Dan Bailey. And that's not everything. Jesus Christ. I'm not sure any Head Coach has had to steer the ship through more utter disaster than Mike Zimmer has over the past 5 years. So my loyalties want Mike Zimmer back--it's a miracle we've even had 2 playoff seasons with all this going on, and all this bad fortune was completely out of his control. It's not like he had a hand in any of it. Until his players started quitting. My gut says that at this point it's too much to overcome, and both Minnesota and Mike Zimmer need to turn over a new leaf. I won't be upset if Mike returns. I'll support him as long as he's here. That being said, I feel as though an objective look at this situation may warrant change. What do the rest of you think?

    Trump Regime thread.

    In some ways everybody's wrong, but it's going to be hard to get Israel to back down as long as Palestinians are strapping bombs to their chests. I think the human rights violations by both sides are too severe for compromise at the moment. They'll need to truly commit to a pact of non-violence before anything is ever solved or agreed upon. Good luck with that. Unfortunately.
