Former Viking Tyler Thigpen

6 posts in this topic

Granted, he's only started 3 games, but did Chilly miss the ball with him. Maybe he should have been kept and Tvaris out the door?

In his past 2 against ok opponets he started he has 3 tds, 0 ints, 62.7% passing, 444 yards and a 100.15 average rating over the 2 games.

For a 7th rounder I have been impressed with the past games.

The guy was a raw rookie, just like JD Booty. We planned to sneak the kid on the practice squad. It didn't happen. This year, we kept JD Booty because of last years result.

He still won't save Herm Edwards job, but I agree, he has had some bright spots. LJ will be gone soon as well.

Jiggsticker is right. Vikes liked him alot but thought they could release him and then resign him to the practice squad. Chilly must have "forgot" the Vikes and Chiefs scrimmage once or twice in the pre-season and obviously Herm Edwards grabbed him as soon as he was released. Bollinger should have been the one to go but Chilly had/has a long personal relationship with the family so he kept him on the roster instead. Hard to tell from just a few games played but Thigpen has looked pretty decent playing on a terrible team. Wouldn't suprise me one bit if he turns out to be a steady starter for years in the league while we continue to look for a Q-Back year after year. Typical B.S. move by the Vikes.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
