Vikings 2019

1. What a lousy throw by Cousins in the endzone and what a lousy play call.  They were running the ball right down the Packers throats, why would you not keep running it. 

2. I think I hate the new PI replay.  To take a touchdown off the board because they noticed someone maybe sorta blocking when they reviewed the scoring play is kind of a joke.  The PI wasn't called on the field and no one challenged it.  When you're reviewing the scoring play it seems like you should only be reviewing if the player got the ball across the line without losing control.  Pretty soon they'll be reviewing every lineman to make sure they weren't holding on the play as well and that none of them moved a thousandth of a second before the snap.  If that happens I hope they also review every defensive player to make sure they didn't move early, hold, or engage a receiver after 5 yards.  It really feels like we've gone too far with this replay thing and they're using it as a answer to everything when sometime you're just exchanging one bad call for another. 

 

I think thats all I've got besides the fact that I haven't been real impressed with the NFC north so far.  The Packers and Vikings look average to decent but hardly superbowl contenders.  The Bears squeaked out a win but they are looking like they don't have much to work with at QB.  And the Lions as usual aren't worth talking about.  

 

1. I think the play call was fine, Cousins just F'ed it up. Play action on first down after you have been running up and down the field on a team is pretty standard but throwing into triple coverage on a play like that is not.

 

2. Anyone who has ever advocated for instant replay review in sports is now getting what they deserve in my opinion. I could have told you that there would be a natural progression that would lead to this point and beyond. I say get rid of replay review in it's entirety and live and die by what referees call on the field. I was told at the beginning stages of replay that the reason was "so we get the calls right". If that is really the reason, you should be happy they got it right.

Ive never really been a fan of replay.  I think we've all seen cases where the refs still screwed it up after replay so we're trading one bad call for another.  Its interesting to hear the rules guy they have commenting on the broadcasts.  They always give their opinions on how they see the play and whether it should be overturned or not.  Yesterday there were 2 reviews that they disagreed with how the officials called the play after review which shows how its all still subjective.    You can look at every single play during a game and probably find something to call on both teams if you look hard enough which I think is a case of what happened during Diggs touchdown that was called back.  Cook either ran into the defender or intentionally tried to block him.  I'm not sure its 100% clear either way and isn't the benchmark supposed to be "clear and indisputable"?  Unfortunately now that replay is a thing pandora is out of its box and I don't think it can ever be put back in.

^^^^^^^^

 

1. zimmerman and stefanski should be fired, cousins benched. (or released)

 

2. the review by the "experts" in NY has destroyed any legitimacy this sport may have had.

 

Should note cousins contract. speilman got played. (he should go too)

I'm OK with the replay if it's used for a challenge.  The automatic review is pretty lame though.

 

And I agree with Dave about the playcall.  If he would have thrown to an open receiver nobody would have said it was an awful call.  Cousins effed that up.

Pro football: Vikings' Cousin is lowest-rated QB in NFL

By Chris Tomasson St. Paul Pioneer Press

Sep 16, 2019 Updated 7 hrs ago

 

EAGAN — At one point last year, Kirk Cousins was the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL. Now, he’s the lowest-rated signal caller in the league.

According to Pro Football Focus, Cousins, in his second season with the Vikings, has a rating of 31.0. That ranks him 33rd out of 33 quarterbacks with enough playing time to qualify.

Agreed that Cousins messed up.  Throwing off your back foot almost fifteen yards behind the line of scrimmage?  However, Stefanski should have never called that play.  Cook is having a career day and Cousins could get strip sacked by a kid in Pop Warner.  The Vikings were in four down territory with just over five minutes left and the Packers only have one timeout.  You run it three times and if you don't score, throw it on fourth down.  If they score, they could have run a couple minutes off the clock and put Green Bay in a tough spot to march down the field managing the clock.

 

Bradbury looks like he is not quite ready to play in the NFL.  Maybe needs a little time.  When Elflein is healthy again, I wouldn't mind seeing Dozier stay in at LG and have Elflein play center.  Not a huge upgrade, but better.

Now, That's what a good mix of a throwing and running game can do! 👍

Exactly,  ya never know maybe Kubiak had a say over Zimms run run run approach.  Hopefully Cousins keeps the confidence going from here on..

It sure looks like they had Diggs in the dog house and not throwing to him much for his missed practices, but Thielen more then made up for him today.

I just hope Diggs doesn't turn into another cry baby Moss!

I am guessing the $200k in fines and then realizing that the Vikings could have voided $40 million of his guaranteed money for missing practice will hopefully put any more drama to rest.

Until they go 8-8 this year and he doesn't have as many catches as he would like and he wants to be gone again.

That was an amazing catch. And

Kirk won a Prime Time Away game against a good team. Yayyyy

 

And what's with Zimmer's defense on 3rd and longs?

I'm not too sure Kirk won that game but at least he didn't do anything to lose it. Without Dalvin Cook the Vikings offense would be less than ordinary.

Just watched the second quarter.  Gotta get back to something enjoyable.  Or at least productive.

    • Red neck fix- take a belt sander and sand a flat spot in the caters so they won’t turn and you are set
    • What you want exists. I used to work for a company that produced a standing chair and I saw parts like that. The trick will be sourcing them in the quantity you need. might want to check with Grainger or McMaster-carr.   How about splurging on your Mom and getting her a new table and chairs set? Might be easier.😀
    • The legs are fairly long/wide rectangular and so I don't see this type of thing working.  What I would really like would be some sort of device that had the shaft but a flat piece of plastic rather than the casters.  But I've never seen anything like that.
    • Couldn't you pry them off with a channel locks and put a rubber chair-table leg cap on them?   
    • Mom just got wooden flooring installed in her kitchen.  The chairs she has have casters, the ones with the shaft that gets inserted into the sleeve on the bottom of the leg.  We'd like to get something was just a flat piece that wouldn't move so easily.  Concern is that the 93-year-old will take a tumble if the chairs moves as she sits down.  
    • It was a flooded camper to start.  $400 basically I paid for a rolling shell.  Here is Iowa not much ice yet, Okoboji should cap tonight.  So hopefully in a couple weeks we will be fishing.  Im wiring it tonight and insulation late this week.  Hopefully we will be done before the 1st of the year or so.   
    • When I built my wheelhouse 5 years ago I wanted total wheel alignment capability. I designed my axles around bolt on wheel hubs with ability to compound shim achieving correct camber and toe. Saw way too many boat trailers with serious worn tires due to hubs welded to axels. (Tire in photo attached to 2x4 was used during build so I could cut the grass.)
    • Wow, you really stripped her down.  Nice work so far, but you better keep working. The ice is getting thicker by the day!  😄
