New QB Kirk Cousins added and

New DT Sheldon Richardson added.

RB Dalvin Cook will be off IR

RB Latavius Murray took a pay cut

The draft will only juice this team up even more.

The Vikes also have a younger version of Case Keenum in new backup QB Trevor Siemian.

Like the moves they have made so far. Cousins is a definite upgrade. The Richardson signing is my fav so far he's a beast on the inside line up him and Linval in the middle  and good luck to any team punching through that gridlock. He will be getting sacks this year Zim is a wizard on defense.  Thinking they may add another WR or safety in the second wave. Would like to see a guy like Eric Decker  come over to the number 3 spot but unlikely as he wants to be a number one yet. Definitely see them singing offensive line help in first round . Possibly a corner  and some depth players in the later rounds.

Add to that, that Barr, Kendricks, Diggs and Hunter are all playing for their first BIG (non-rookie) contracts, so they should play extra hard this year.

Still need to solid up the OL, get a decent Safety next to Harrison, and a couple of decent DB's. 

Then just pray the injury Gods are on their side for the year.

Lets make this thread blow up this year!

 

Preseason game 1 is in the books.

The biggest question mark on this team will be the offensive line once again.  Tonight, in my opinion, was a real good showing overall.  Can they consistently play well? Protection was ok, and the holes they opened up for the running game was a pleasent suprise.

 

Quarterbacks all preformed well.  I think our QB depth is more than adequate.  Nice to see considering they are all new to the system, save for Sloter.

 

Running backs looked pretty solid! Should be quite a tough decision for the 3rd running back spot.  

 

Recievers were hard to judge tonight I thought, this were spread out alot.

 

Defense was steller in the first half.  Our 1's and 2's looked great.  After that, depth looked a little shaky.

I am a little concerned with the general lack of pressure in this game.  We ended last year with the same issue.  Hopefully it is just the vanilla sets we run in preseason.

 

Carlson did himself great in the battle for the kicking job.  I have little doubt now he wins the job.

 

After one glorified practice, I like what I see.

I agree. I am concerned with the oline depth.

 

It's going to be a fun year.

OUCH!!!

6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.

 

Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.

 

Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.  

 

3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.

 

Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

I was at the game last night. Pretty fun ending even though it is just preseason. Disappointed that Carlson missed 2 field goals. he has looked great all pre-season and he was hitting everything in warmups.. Cousins looked decent, Simien looked terrible, Sloter looked great! There are still plenty of kinks that will work themselves  out as the season progresses but I do believe this will be a very good team this year. They have a pretty tough schedule but I think they will at least go 11-5 and get into the playoffs.

      I was just thinking since resorts on red were letting people do it on 10 a couple weeks ago it would be good to go.

      Good for you! Seems like you got a fair deal. You will have a blast congrats on your new ride.

      One of my buddy’s cousins just hauled out his IC 8x17 this past weekend with an ATV. 10” of ice. Personally I wouldn’t yet because of how much money they are but I’m sure you’d be fine.

      Is 10 inches good to safely bring an 8x16 ice castle fish house out with an atv. 4300#  I am thinking it is, just want reassurance.

      Really, calling me out like that!   Nothing I would rather do than enjoy my kids passions with them.  A rental for two days costs very slightly less than a year of association hockey,  summer camp, and fall hockey.  Family time the whole way.   Little disappointed in the stereotype!

      If you have Wifi available I would go with a security camera.  We have four Nest cameras running at our place.  They can be configured to send you a push notification on your phone and/or an email when motion is detected.  You can also view the video feed from your phone, tablet or PC.  My exterior cameras have been up for three years and have worked flawlessly even in -20F temperatures.

      First time this year bought a Stealth cam and like it so far. Have used Bushnell with good luck, Brownings with mixed good and bad. Have a really bad Cuddyback. Had a Hawk Ghost cam which I ended up sending back. Ate batteries really fast. Of all I've used, Bushnell had the best pictures.

      Had a wild game and never again. Leaked oil all over the sd card. I have stealth cams and they seem to hold up. I have bought some cheap ones from Walmart that are tasco (25-35$) they do a pretty good job for the price. You will be paying 2-300 for the ones that send pics to your phone plus monthly subscriptions. Depending on the island and if you have WiFi wondering if you couldn’t do video motion  that would show on the phone like ring or some of the others. Just some stuff to think about.

      That's great.   Are you sure it is a Classic 550 Fan?   I thought the 2000 Sport Touring and Trail Touring were 550 fans and the 2000 Classic Touring was a 500 Liq cooled?  I had a 2000 Sport Touring 550 fan. But I may be wrong?  🤔

      Stay away from Wildgame Innovations cameras.  Attractive price points but very low end sequipment and the reliability is very poor.  I have had the best luck with Moultrie.  I have a couple camera fanatic hunting buddies that swear by Browning game cameras.   Thee are cameras that connect to the cell network and that can email you pictures.  Those products have a monthly or seasonal subscription price.
