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.

      At the hunting shack we put up a pulley and run the winch cable from the 4 wheeler through it and hoist em up.

      ps I would be happy to provide closeups of particular areas or the insets on the map.    Especially if they are of your hot spots.

      Note to self.  Keep your "Packers Suck" T-shirt in the fishing boat for all future fish pics.   Ties are like head butts, everyone loses.

      And this is why you ALWAYS check out FM. I had a crazy busy summer as I worked full time so my weekends and evenings I was always doing somthing and I never just sat down. So I just noticed I missed this great “ goodie” package. Darn!

      A chain, a $20-$30 come-along and your set. Wrap chain around rafter hook up come- along and away you go. Been doing it this way for many many years without trouble.

      I'll say this. As a Vikings fan, Mrs. Skunked Again was pretty emotionally upset in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. She warmed up a bit when her team came roaring back in the 4th. I don't think either of us would have survived the four hour drive back to MN without a tie.
