    If they say they're not okay with cancelling games they lose a lot of leverage.

    Jeff Passan is reporting that there was enough progress at today's 2 hour meeting that they're going to meet again tomorrow.

    This hardly means much, but I'll take progress at this point.

    It seems to me that the owners (and the players) have had years to develop their positions and to develop spreadsheets to run the numbers, and 43 days is far too long to make a proposal.

    I blame the owners.  Taking 43 days to make a proposal is inexcusable.
    It seems to me that both sides should be in mediation every day until this is resolved.  As in the past, this type of monkey business risks alienating fans and damaging owners and players alike.

    About as good as a Minnesota Vikings field goal attempt to win a playoff game.

    Mod Note: Let's all take a deep breath and start approaching this with a bit more respect. The bickering back and forth can stop.

    It's amazing how much the tanking philosophy has ingrained itself into fan bases. I'm not saying you're wrong but the idea of hoping the Chicago Bears (!!) beat the Vikings for draft position, or to start someone who isn't ready, would have blown 16 year old me away.

    It was reported that Mannion's hand was getting looked at when Mond was in... they never had any intent to actually play Mond. Also:
    I'd fire Zimmer tomorrow and get the coaching search underway, there's just no reason to continue forward with him. Spielman probably gets a 'promotion' to a cushy position where he'll lose power over the roster, all so that the Wilfs won't have to buy him out.

    There was zero chance Mannion won this game. The Vikings only hope was to actually go with Mond and hope the difference in QB styles messed with GB’s game plans.
    But now when they lose, Zimmer and Spielman can try to pin the lost season on Cousins’ selfishness. 
     
    They’ll all be gone regardless though, and we didn’t get a look at Mond.

    I am muting the commentary the rest of the game. Collinsworth talking up Mannion’s first half like he was great.

    Mark Rosen said he thought Mannion was 100% the correct decision because Mannion works closely with Cousins and has the same style of play and knows the playbook. I don’t know. I think it’s an indictment that the team would rather not risk expanding the playbook for a quarterback like Mond who can bring the running element. I think Mond is the high risk high reward play here. It’s a different game than it was 10-20 years ago where QBs and WRs develop and contribute much earlier. I don’t need to tell any of you that. I will say that the offense has maybe looked more open than it did earlier in the year? Not sure. Not having a mobile QB threat is putting yourself at a disadvantage, but I can’t blame Cousins who has been running better than previous seasons, or maybe more accurate to say he’s less afraid to “take off running” when needed. Anyway, it’s Mannion tonight, and not Mond. We’ll see.

    If we're gutting the whole presentation it should start with Paul Allen.  KFAN has pretty god awful coverage all around and Allen is a terrible human being who isn't good at his job or remotely entertaining.
    I like Bercich.  I definitely wouldn't fire him, in part, for being a homer and then keep Paul Allen.  That makes zero sense to me.

    PFF has an article about hypothetical offseason trades for a number of QBs. One hypothetical is trading Kirk Cousins to Pittsburgh for their 2022 1st round pick and 2023 2nd. Pittsburgh ironically has $35 million in cap space to fit Kirk’s existing contract. If this is realistic at all, I hope we do it and start the rebuild.
