2021 Season Thread


Recommended Posts

Glad Green Bay lost. I hate them. SF looks good. The NFC west is going to be the most competitive division this year.

Rough loss today for the Vikes. We should have won, lots of missed opportunities, not sure how the replay officials didn't reverse both calls but, whatever. Next week we could easily be 0-2.

On the plus side, our punter seems pretty good and I had no expectation, none whatsoever, that our kicker would force overtime.

This will most likely be the game we look back on if we’re somehow in the playoff race late in the season and need to win in Green Bay and sweep the Bears. 

The interior DL is vastly improved from last year. Pierce stood out today, and Tomlinson plugged holes. 

It baffles me why Dantzler was in street clothes today while Breeland got the start and got torched? Talk about a missed opportunity for the kid to take over the starting role. 

Finally, of course… The OL was brutal. Davis and Darrisaw can’t return fast enough. Hill is completely overmatched at LT.  Udoh is simply depth, not starting material. Bradbury is trending towards being a 1st round bust. Even O’Niell was disappointing after getting paid.

Dantzler was not very good in the preseason. No way Zimmer was playing him over Breeland.

Whelp, my pre-season prediction of Dantzler becoming an All-Pro during his rookie contract will probably come true if he’s a 49er. 

It is a sign that the Vikings are not ready to give up on him, but I'm starting to think that it's going to take another coaching staff to fix him, since Zimmer just doesn't get the most out of young CBs. After spending 1sts on Waynes, Hughes, and Gladney, why even bother drafting CBs when they can sign veterans that will make Zimmer happy?

If there is any one thing I would want to fire these two for it's this.  Over and over and over again we invest in Zimmer's pet projects and over and over and over again he sits them on the bench.  If you need three years to develop dudes, make those picks in the 3rd and 4th round.  The early rounds should be for guys impacting by the end of their first season.

Ahh, Vikings going to Vikings. Everson Griffen will be out for Week 2 against the Cardinals, with Zimmer telling reporters Griffen is in concussion protocol after swerving and crashing his car while trying to avoid a deer on the way to the practice facility.

Best DUI cover ever!

 

(Can't help it, first thing that came to mind.  Hope Ev is ok!)

Wouldn't have happened if they left it in Edina.....

Y'know, I had a feeling the Vikings were going to cover the spread and not get blown out. They played better than expected on offense, but man, the defense is just a trainwreck. We pumped all that money in FA for this? And then, of course, the kicker misses an easy one to lose it late, after he already missed an XP. Perhaps giving Joseph zero competition was a bad idea... ugh.

People will praise Cousins for his *Pro Bowl Performance* and blatantly ignore that awful overshot of Jefferson on 3rd Down with nearly everything on the line.

What is he paid again? $33 Million?

I hate on Cousins as much as any fan, but today wasn’t his fault… The play calling on offense in the 2nd half was head scratching to say the least. Kubiak has much to learn about being an OC. Why continue running Cook into the ground, especially when he’s hurt?

The main culprit is the revamped defense we spent a ton of cash on for a quick turnaround. 479 yards given up, 371 in the air. Our secondary full of veterans was torched today. This is not a good endorsement for Zimmer. Vegas odds increased for him being fired mid season I would imagine.

True. I take that back then.
