Last game of the year

My fam is all decked out in our Viking's gear, tough last half of the season but very entertaining. I think we will stomp these Bears. Playing in the championship game for fantasy league and I couldn't get myself to start Howard lol

Bradford sets record for best completion percentage in NFL history.

 

Geez you just wonder how could this even be. Would have been nice to throw a few over the goal line this year! :whistle:

He exceeded my expectations with that line he had in front of them. They did what they could with what they had but I'm looking forward to building on what we need and seeing who is coming or going. Watching the Lions and Packers game now, GO BLUE!

Sam had 20 TD's in 15 games. 8 more and he would have thrown as many as Theodore threw in 28 games.

Keeping Bradford around is the best thing our team could do. Get rid of AP and hit the O-line market the best they can.

I know this season it had a lot to do with the running game, but the Vikings went down 10 spots in points per drive from 2015 to 2016.

One telling stat for the season, IMO.

Vikings were 5-0 when scoring more than 21 pts.

Only 5 times all year. Pretty sad really. Considering good QB play, a fair to good corps or receivers.

Rhonda Rousy landed %50 of her punches and got her @ss handed to her against Nunes :) Percentage isnt everything.

 

I will say Bradford broke the pct record despite the offensive line but also because of the offensive line. They had no choice but tho throw quick and short, didn't have enough time to let plays develop any longer.

 

And I was hoping that last game at home against the terrible Bears and a meaningless game for the Vikes that I would have been able to score some decent tickets just to check out the stadium for the first time. No way was I going to take my family of 4 to the game for what people were still asking for tickets.

Ya I wondered what the tickets were going for.  I have been to quite a few Vikes games but it has been years.  My wife is a huge fan like me and hasn't been to a game.  We keep thinking of biting the bullet and just going for it.  Find a hotel, shuttle package deal or something easy like that.  Just so nice to be at home watching in comfort and then hit the fish house for a couple of hours.

Lowest I found was about $80 each for 2, and they were nose bleeds about as far back from the field as possible. I couldn't find a group of 4 tickets together for under a $100 and they were all about as far away from the field as possible as well. There may not be a bad seat there but after the ticket fees etc from 2nd party sites I wasn't going to pay $500+ for tickets and food gas and travel to get there. I didnt even try craiglist wasnt worth the risk.

 

I am going to the Supercross race there in February so I will check it out then. I paid $60 a ticket and am first row on an aisle in the 2nd deck. About 1/5th the price per ticket I would have paid to see the Vikes from the same seats.

 

 Hopefully they get the security issues worked out by then lol

His percentage was amazing, even though it was so high because of the playbook we had to use thanks to the O-line. He has shown some pretty stellar downfield accuracy even when rushed. If he had time for a play to develop or if he had a running game to fall back on he would be friggin awesome. 

 

I'm on the Bradford bandwagon, I can't wait to see how they play their cards this offseason.

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
