  1. I was just reading about how Cousins is close to setting a record for passes since he threw an interception set in 2001. So yeah I am sure he will throw one at some point but it's been a long time since he did. I do remember the Falcons game last year being bad.
  2. Thanks for posting this travdogg. I think Kirk Cousins should be ranked higher than Sam Darnold at least.
  3. Shrugs. I'm kind of surprised by the no call there as well.
  4. Jefferson with the TD to close out the half. Great drive..
  5. Whatever Zimmer said to the defense after that time out seems to have helped. The Vikings actually stopped them.
  6. The crowd was pumped up at the start of the game but then they realized this defense sucks.
  7. I dont think the timing is great to put him on the trading block right now. However there is some wisdom in what Menobrown said and also just looking at a pretty large sample size of players from my study, it was only one out of 4 players who had a top 12 season who were able to do this for more than 2 seasons, which CMC has done so far already in his career. Now CMC has a lot going for him that are positives as far as him being one of those players. Even with missing several weeks he still might do that this season, and his opportunities when healthy are elite. I dont think it hurts you any to listen to offers. You may get some really bad offers right now because he is injured. As long as you dont mind listening to those and saying no I dont see any harm in doing that. It's actually a good opportunity to gather information from your competitors. Maybe some one actually makes you a good offer worth considering. I would not sell CMC at a discount because he is injured though and I would expect most offers to be trying to buy low. As I said though you might learn some things from those offers like what players your competition is willing to move on from, maybe that information leads you to some other deals that do not involve CMC. I dont see any harm in doing it. Just be prepared for a lot of low ball offers. Doing this now may cause your competition to smell blood in the water and start sending you lots of offers you would not get otherwise. That doesnt mean you have to be a tomato. You can always say no.
  8. So dont click on it. I dont think your missing anything.
  9. Hmm maybe so as far as the play calling.i only watched the game live, I didnt watch it again. I did note some of Cooks better runs were from big personnel packages. The Vikings really miss Irv Smith. Especially his blocking. Part of me just wants the Vikings to rest Cook and go with more 3 and 4 WR sets I think they have the WR to do that. It doesnt play to Cousins strengths though.
  10. One reason to he optimistic about Cook is that he did come back into the game after the injury and gutted it out. He wasnt very effective coming back though. In any case him being able to come back in and play does signal that it might not be that serious, even though he hasn't practiced this week. Listening to Cooks press conference was kind of a mixed bag. He said the reason he stayed down for so long after Watts tackle was that what he felt wasnt pain he was used to feeling, so he was just being cautious about the unknown. On the other side of that he expressed confidence in Mattison doing well if he isnt able to go. So I wasnt able to get a sense for how he was leaning on that, if he will play or not based on his comments.
  11. Patterson looks great. Happy for him and I hope he can keep it up. He had some nice runs getting yards after contact too. He does seem to have improved that part of his game. I dont blame anyone looking to sell as he has been pretty inconsistent over his career so far, but what he has done in those clips seems sustainable if they keep giving him opportunities.
  12. Yeah he didnt practice Friday which normally means he wouldnt play. Kyle Rudolph is the only player to miss all practices during the week but played anyways under Zimmer so far. If Cook does play he may be on a pitch count or he might reagrevate the injury and need to be spelled as you say. Its definitely worrisome and while Cook could prove those worries wrong, if you have other options might be best to use them. I wish the Vikings felt they had other options and let Cook rest and fully recover, but he is a special player and not really replaceable.
  13. Go was digned up at the start of the season which may be part of the reason he hasn't played many snaps yet. I'm hoping Gatorman us right about this. I have Bernard on all of my teams.
  14. Remains to be seen. If Cook practices today then he will likely play.
  15. In the study I did on this I found the average number of top 12 seasons for a RB who qualified was 2. Emmitt LT Peterson were some of the exceptions to this. Maybe Faulk had 4 or 5 I would have to look at that again to be sure. Oh and Barry Sanders Here is the study 24% of the sample size had 3 or more 40 VBD seasons.
  16. Strange question. I voted for other which stands for none of the above. Even if one or more of these guys ends up losing their opportunity to be a starter I figure they will still be in the NFL as back ups for the next 8-10 seasons unless something truly unpredictable happens.
  17. This is nice Joe. It sort of reminds me of what @SameSongNDance was doing with his snaps and utilization threads from years past which were an illuminating asset. Keep up the good work.
  18. It is only two weeks into the 2021 season which is too early and not enough data to work with as far as projecting player performance moving forward. That said Rondale Moore is currently WR 17 in total points which makes him a WR two for fantasy and he is the top performing rookie WR of 2021 so far. I would say he is outperforming even my very optimistic expectations for him while also considering how few offensive snaps he has had so far. His performance should mean that he will earn more snaps and opportunities going forward as long as he stays healthy. It will be interesting to see how he does over the next couple weeks and if he falls back to earth or not. He is working with currently the number one performing QB for fantasy right now in Kyler Murray and in week two he outperformed all Cardinals WRs. Thats eye popping to me.
  19. Why does it make sense to start Elijah Moore over Rondale Moore?
  20. I disagree with this narrative that Mike ZImmer is out of touch with the current trends of the NFL. I assume this comment is in reference to the offense and Zimmer wanting to run the ball more a few years back when they had DeFlippo as OC? I suppose you could say that Gary Kubiak and now Klint Kubiaks offense was effective in the 90s and it was. But it was also very effective last season and despite all the penalties in week one it is proving to be very effective this season as well. The Vikings are currently top 13 in all offensive categories that matter such as points, yards and first downs. The outside zone running scheme has gained popularity in todays NFL for other teams not just the Vikings, and the play action passing game is also part of todays "modern" offenses. So your comments are just not aligned with the facts. The main problem with the Vikings last season and so far this season is not the offense. Its the defense, which is supposed to be Mike Zimmers specialty. The main problem there has been the pass coverage not holding up and this is ZImmers fault at least to a degree. He designs the defense and he calls the plays. From what I have seen the Vikings defense is more stout against the run than it was last season. Largely because of Pierce and Tonlinson not getting blown off the line like the Vikings defensive tackles not worth mentioning were last season. The defensive backs on the other hand have not been good enough. Especially Breeland. This is Zimmers fault. He has developed some good defensive backs such as Anthony Harris who is now with the Eagles, but the defensive backs they have now do not seem to be much of an improvement or not enough of an improvement over last season, and that is ZImmers baby. So if you want to criticize him and get out the pitchforks because of that I can understand. However if your criticizing him because of the offense I think you are stuck in 2017 and those comments dont have much merit.
  21. Of course not. That doesnt mean this wont be said over and over again anyways.
