65 posts in this topic

Do you all think that its right for NE to put the francise tag on him?

Yep, if they can trade him they will get maximum value out of him. If they don't, they have a great back up.

It's alot of $$$ for one position on that or any team. Too much I think. I think Cassell will get moved between now and the draft. When does a team have to declare their franchise players?

I think I saw somewhere it is Feb 5th through the 15th or something close to that. I think it was a smart move because there is a lot of teams out there that need a good QB (starts with a Vi and ends in a kings). I think the price is high, but just imagine the Viks chances with a good QB.

The Vikings would be insane to pay a high price for Cassell. Yes, he had one decent year. With Randy Moss and Wes Welker to throw to. There is no way the Vikes should give up talent + picks for an unproven commodity.

He had a rating of 89.4 , and some people are acting like he's another Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. I don't think he's even another Eli Manning, at least not yet.

I am in no way putting him on that kind of pedistal, he is a good QB. A whole lot better than T-jack and a 38 year old. The price is high and might not be worth it, just dreaming of the day when the viks have a well rounded team instead of a few good players here and there.

But who I'm i kidding it is a minnesota team

Without a good Quarterback no team will do anything. Nomatter how many other good players are on the team. The Viks have to step up and Stop dreaming TJ is going to be the ticket. By the time he maybe does we ll be looking for other good players that have left or have gotten past their prime.

I think it's worth the risk. But we still need to work on the right side of our line.

Cassel had one good year behind a pretty good Oline and an amazing QB staff - after sitting behind Tom Brady. I don't think the Vikes should roll the dice considering the high price involved

I dont think it is worth it. A very high price tag, then having to part with a couple 1st round picks, nah! There are better options out there anyway!

Exactly!.... the Pats are going to try and rip somebody off big-time in this instance.

Its a win-win for the pats - they have insurance in case Brady has issues coming back, and if Brady does come back they can trade Cassel for more than he's worth

Name them, Butt Favre, Hasselback, Grossman, Anderson. They're options but certainly not any better.

Cassel, is going to demand big money + 2 first round draft picks, and he has not even played a whole season! UNPROVEN!-BIG MONEY-LOSS OF 2 1ST ROUNDERS, NAH! Why risk your teams future on a guy that hasnt even played a whole season?

According to a lot of folks, our TEAM isn't getting any younger. Who knows it could pay off BIG. It's just an option. I was really looking for what other options you were talking about that were so much better.

IF nothing else works out as far as the other QB's I mentioned, than would you take that risk, if Cassell was the only one left or would you grit it out with Tjack for another year. I sure hope not.

I don't think he's worth breaking the bank over, but he's a good option and leaps above what we have.

This isn't comparable to the Herschel trade, not in the least. Dallas built their Dynasty with that trade. I know that's why they slapped Cassell with the franchise tag. The Pats are smart. They know they can't pay Cassell top dollar, but somebody will.

It's like watching a kid standing on the side of the pool for hours and hours, unable to dive in.

DIVE IN AND GET A GOOD QUARTERBACK!

Cassel is not leaps and bounds over what we have now. That O-line, Moss and Welker would make any QB look good, even T-Jack. Especially not at the price that will be asked for him. We won't get a crack at him until too late because it will take a bit of training camp before the Pats will decide if Brady is good to go. Reports out there say the odds are good he will not be good to go right away.

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
