    I hope he face plants not only because he is not a Viking but also because I don't like anything about him and I think he's a fraud.

    At least it seems the young man is seriously readying himself and is trying to make the absolute most of his opportunity. That's all we can ask of him.

    I can't believe how we're talking about a qb who has never taken the first snap and who doesn't even play for the Vikings. I don't give a flying f__k about no Johnny Manziel. He's not a Viking. To...

    Passing on first down? Oh my! I don't know if my heart could take it. I's so used to that 30 year old offense that every team knew what we were doing before the snap.....

    From Central WV and grew up among Pittsburgh and Dallas fans. I have a 1971 team picture/postcard framed on my wall that I got when I wrote a letter to the Vikings when I was 10.

    Aside from my humble opinion that he can't play, I did not want Manziel on the Vikings and have to put up with the sideshow act and all the distractions that come with him. It will get old very...

    If we had a decent QB and a top half defense and no AP, we would all be hollering that we need a RB to get over the top. Peterson is one of the greatest Vikings ever and we should try and keep him...

    Our history is the main reason we won't have the turnaround you see. The Vikings have rarely beaten teams that are better than them and tend to play down to their competition, thereby letting...

    Very cheery outlook. More like the glass is full and overflowing. 11-5? Can't see it myself, but then I've beaten beaten down over the last 45 years and tend to be a bit more pessimistic..

    Sounds good. Hopefully it will work out that way on the field. It has to be better than that boring crap we've been running.

    At this point an 8-8 or 9-7 would seem like a huge win. Pretty sad isn't it? Hopefully lightning will strike and we leap out to a 10-6.

    My post is certainly not a train wreck and I take exception to your tone. I only pointed out that QBs who throw under 50% on deep balls are not necessarily weak armed. And I pointed out that IF...

    You can't knock a man for where he played college ball. He went to L'ville and had a great career. There are plenty of NFL QBs that did not go to a so-called power conference. Will TB be able to...

    According to PFF these are the completion percentages for passes over 20 yards last year:

    Rodgers 53.2
    PManning 52.8
    Newton 52.4
    RGIII 50.0
    Brees 48.8
    Wilson ...

    For each one of those reports (opinions) there is another that indicates the opposite. I've probably read at least ten different scouting reports on Bridgewater, so I don't think I'm uninformed. ...

    Good points. By most accounts Bridgewater has good anticipation, can throw guys open, has good mechanics, pocket presence, and knows what he's doing. I think I'll take that combination of factors...

    Not sure Bridgewater is considered as having a weak arm. Not a cannon but lots of cannon guys can't hit the broad side of a barn. With Peterson aging and Toby gone, and the guys we have not all...

    I'm 6-4, 230. Hand size is 9.25" and I can still throw the hell out of it. Even when it's cold. And I'm 53. Ted will be fine.

    Screw Mel Kiper! The boys over on SI.com gave us an A+ on our draft. Unfortunately they gave the Packers an A and rated Chicago's an A- or a B (can't remember which).

    I've heard that. Guy can only "dance with what brung him". Regardless, the comment was made that he was not an accurate passer and the statistics don't bear that out. And he managed to play pretty...

    Three years at Louisville his completion rate was 68.4% and he had 72 TD against only 24 pics. QB rating of 157.2. Yep, he's inaccurate all right. I wish Ponder was that inaccurate.
