What's next for Vikings?

Recommended Posts

Are we stuck with names such as Peterson (fumbles age and contract), Patterson (foolishness) , Kalil (no words can describe it)?  

And personally- the local media says "Oh, the Vikings had the perfect game plan"  Not seeing it.  We still ran the ball on 1st down to Peterson most of the time and kept trying to make Bridgewater into a pocket passer when he needs be moving around the field like Russell and Cam Newton.  Bridgewater has talent but will continue to have problems in the pocket with the side arm motion,smaller size and lack of arm strength.

Peterson was the rushing champ.  Kalil was not a disaster this year.

Patterson, well he is still under rookie contract so you will see him on the squad next year because he is a cheap kick returner.  After next year, he will be gone.

My concerns lie with Bridgewater.  So many people are enamoured with him because he is an upgrade from every quarterback the Vikings have had since 2009 Favre. 

The upside is that he mostly avoids mistakes.  The downside is that he is so focused on the check down, that he doesn't notice open receivers.  There were at least two instances where a receiver was open down field but he was looking for the check down and never saw the opportunity.

The question is can he go from being a stable quarterback to a great one?  He has only played two seasons, so he is still learning.  We shall see.

He as focused on the checkdown. And I believe that was only because he is used to defensive lineman and linebackers getting through the line in about half a second flat. I don't know a single quarterback that would sit in the pocket and absorb hit after hit and not start automatically looking for that check down. While I also think that he has a LOT to learn yet, I do believe that he can become a very good quarterback. Get him an offensive line that can block and maybe we might start seeing more of those downfield passes we all so desperately crave.

      You sure this is from Red Lake in MN?  There’s a Red Lake in Canada that’s a commercial fishery.  Often confused with MN.

      I agree. A few years ago I got a Hummer Ice 55. I went up to Red lake for a 3 day 2 night trip.  I brought my FL-18 along as a back up. When I was fishing I said, what the heck and ran one in each hole started at the same time with both batteries charged to full at the start of the trip. The Bird-55 died in a day and a half and the FL-18 ran until I shut it off to leave on the 3rd day. I sold the Hummer Ice-55 later that winter.

      Very low power draw i am told on the fl18

      Wouldn't be surprised if the Vex gauge doesn't read the battery correctly, since lithiums have a flatter/higher voltage curve and those meters read the voltage, if my memory serves me right.   Or the Vex just has such low power draw its barely making a dent in it.  🙂

      Lot's of really good reading and points in the above.  Hope they have learned some lessons from the past and the Greed doesn't come back again!  It's always Man's Greed that makes them fail! 😕   "Commercial fishing grew from 200 Indian netters  in the 1960s to a peak of 600 in the 1980s,  with some individuals setting 80 nets, Bedeau  said. With large bonuses from the association, some of them made $80,000 per season, he said. "It was greed," Dickenson said. "The culture  got lost."   "In 1989, the tribe's commercial netters  registered a record 948,000 pounds of walleye."   And this years quota was just about back to that of 820,000.  So did they learn anything? 🤔

      If we could all just follow the same rules, this wouldn't be a discussion. The law shouldn't discriminate.

      I think what he was referring to is that you should care before things go bad, not after.
