    Yeah Rondale would have housed that one for sure, wide open

    Probably in here somewhere but this is a game where Prater needs to put every kick out of the endzone and we need to punt away from them. Jamal Agnew has 6 returns for TD's in his career, 4 on punts, 2 on KO's including one last week.

    I'm kind of leaning to being tempted to sit D Hop if there's any real choice? have him on my team would suck for me but for the season with 17 games and a tough division matchup the next 2 weeks you can argue if ever there's a game to sit him this would be it. Hopefully he's good to go but if...

    Need D Hop and Murphy on the field. and I need D Hop on my fantasy team.

    Vikings guy thinks Zimmer outcoached Kliff

    True but then others get open. Again I love Maxx, thrilled we have him, but having a bigger pass receiving threat at TE at certain times really helped us last year and I think could have this year.

    Vikings guy thinks Zimmer outcoached Kliff

    yes but ask yourself if Arnold caught the same balls as Maxx did in week 2 would he not have gotten more yards? I love Maxx don't get me wrong I would just love to have retained Arnold too. Maxx better blocker, Arnold better receiver, especially in the redzone.

    Vikings guy thinks Zimmer outcoached Kliff

    A friend who's a Cardinals fan sent to me. https://zonecoverage.com/2021/minnesota-vikings-news/believe-it-or-not-mike-zimmer-outcoached-kliff-kingsbury/ I'm not a huge Kliff defender so it doesn't bug me to suggest an NFL coach outcoached him even in a game we won but I do have to say we put...

    I take it back about Kyler's 2nd INT

    So shane is Mick Cronin's twin but I recall Shane looks much taller than Mick!

    Fascinated to see if the vet tangibles/intangibles pays off in the long run. Cause we did have more youthful options.

    I can't say anything bad about Hudson so far to me he's been good. Maybe PFF doesn't agree but Kyler called him out for the all out blitz in the first game for seeing it pre snap and alerting Kyler to change the play. I think he's likely doing stuff like that far more often than we realize. It...

    10 thoughts - Vikings game

    And the two times on plays where players were CLEARLY stopped well short he says "I DON'T KNOW" like it was close to him getting it. I'll always have a soft spot for Gus for that call in the UCLA comeback over Gonzaga in the NCAA tourney, "UCLA has climbed the mountain" after the steal and...

    I take it back about Kyler's 2nd INT

    I actually don't think so it's a tick late yes but I agree with Kyler if he's not hit on the throw in the face that's a TD or an incompletion that nobody can catch. you can see the wobble on the throw as it comes out because of the collison. Side question is that you in the picture or is Mick...

    Let’s do some QB hot takes thru week-2…

    Good runner, throws a beautiful deep ball but seems like the rest of his game is behind. he's like the basketball player that can dunk and make the 3 but has no midrange. Watched some of them against SF made several nice deep throws including one to Watkins and one to my guy Jalen Reagor for a...

    I take it back about Kyler's 2nd INT

    Yeah the reply on youtube you can see Kyler's head turn live I thought he was exaggerating to get the penalty but replay it clearly got him and the ball wobbles quite obviously. Also note he DID step up in the pocket it's weird but if he hadn't, the guy probably doesn't get his facemask.

    PFF Game Grades

    Yep on the Rondale TD Kirk escorts him in with a nice block downfield. There's another play where Kirk makes a really good block downfield too.

    I take it back about Kyler's 2nd INT

    The thing is if the blow to the helmet doesn't happen it's pretty likely that ball is either a TD or an incompletion because there's plenty of space there for Kyler to put the ball where either Kirk catches it or nobody does. Yes there are layups underneath but in the NFL that ball is open. I...
