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.

    • what a story!!!  and memories for ever too!!!!  glad all are good safe!!!
    • i've seen i work well, then not. did the drag also and didnt notice deer following it up. and i've never been stampeded by deer using scents, so...........   i'm beginning to be a huge believer in that little green can though!!!!!!!!!! the one that sounds like a doe screaming for a boyfriend!!!
    • I’ve used it in the past and never really had any success with it. Deer would cross the trail if I was pulling it on a rope on the walk in and not notice. I’ve tried the canisters around the stand also and didn’t seem to have any luck. The only thing that was always consistent with it was opening up in my pocket and soaking myself with it. 
    • It definitely was an adventure.  My wife wasn't to thrilled finding me looking up wall tents to buy for next year.  Hoping we get drawn for Montana again and I can leave Idaho alone for a year or so. 
    • Wow! That's why when my wife says have fun hunting honey, I say it's Not fun!  😕 It's an Adventure!!   😆   Old Indian saying.  "Only White man put his Tepee by dead tree!"  
    • Update is we are home and alive!!!   We left Friday Oct 11 with plans to shoot across S. Dakota...once we got down there the roads were ice covered so we headed down to Nebraska and across I-80 to Salt Lake City before heading north.  We got a room, shower, and some dinner before heading up the mountain first thing Sunday morning. I've never been to Idaho and hadn't talk many folks that had, so we decided to use an outfitter this year for a drop camp.  I can't say enough about the guy we used.  Tents were setup....fully stocked. Wood split and even supplied our food and when I say food...he didn't hold back.  Even had one night with ribeyes.  We ate the like kings all week.  We threw our gear into the tents and headed out scouting for elk and maybe a little deer hunting along the way.  We had 2 days to scout before elk season opened on Tuesday.  We found elk right away...all cows and calves feeding out in the meadows.  Our tents were at 7200 feet with the highest peaks around 8900.  We scouted some also on Monday and found elk again. Monday night while sitting around the campfire, the wolves started howling.  2 different packs on the ridgelines all around us.  I thought to myself this isn't good.  Tuesday morning bright and early we found ourselves at the first spot I wanted to start.  Got a beautiful picture of the sunrise coming up behind the peaks.  We put on around 7 miles by lunch time and couldn't find any elk.  We ate lunch and I drifted off for a few mins, when my son woke me up and said he just saw a bull go over a ridge.  Not sure if he was pulling my leg we headed that direction and I let out a bugle.  Not 30 secs later we got a response.  We headed that direction but as we got closer the winds were swirling, so I said lets leave him for now and head back tomorrow morning. We hiked out got back to wear we parked out ATV's and my son's machine was dead.  I grabbed the recoil and gave it a yank, only it decided to bite back and that's when my middle finger came out of place.  Being the old army medic I am, I got it back into place shortly and made it back to camp where some Windsor and water took the pain away.   Wed- We went back in the morning with good thermals, I brought my son and brother in law with, I left my gun at camp with a sore hand and bugling bull, I sent them in and stayed back with a good vantage point and called.  He fired right up.  Either one of those guys had heard a really fired up bull before so that was pretty cool. Had him chuckling and raking trees, but couldn't get eyes on him.  That went on for a while before he decided he didn't wanted to show his face and he shut up took his cows farther down the drainage and out of our lives forever.  Thur-430am- we get woken up by wind and  things hitting our tents- I looked at my buddy and said is that ice?  He got up and went outside the tent and found gale force winds, almost tornado like whipping branches through the tree line.  He stepped back in, zipped the tent up and said I hope a tree doesn't come down on us.  Then we heard it..the snapping of a tree and everyone with a oh $^#* look on their face.  I yelled get down, everyone bailed off there cots, I jumped onto my son and it came crashing down. Took the front third of our tent down.  We grabbed our flashlights, checked everyone for injuries.  A few bumps and bruised from hitting the ground, but nothing serious.  We crawled out of the tent and found a 100 foot spruce with 31 inch diameter 11 feet up from the base came right out of the ground.  If not for another downed tree and some luck on the path it took, I'm positive I wouldn't be writing this.  1 foot to right and we would of been in some bad shape.  We jumped on our ATV's and headed down the mountain to get out of the wind.  We headed to where the outfitter was operating.   He came out of his tent along with one of his guides, wondering what we were doing.  After explaining the situation around the campfire and some coffee, we all headed back to our tents with chains saws and anything else he thought we need for repairs.  We worked until noon clearing logs and fixing the tent.  We decided we probably would just hang around camp that day and gather our nerves.  Plus I had already decided at that point to rest my sore hand.  One of the guides came up with a fox pro that evening and took us out on a quick wolf hunt to see if we could get them going.  They decided to not play that night and then the snow really cranked up.  Between Thursday and Sunday morning it was hard to judge the snow depths with all the wind, but i'm guessing over 15 inches fell.  Seemed to shut all the animals down or they moved to lower elevations to look for food.  Saturday morning walking across a rock slide, I slipped twisted my ankle and banged my finger again, falling about 10 feet down the hill.  Good grief...Idaho is not for the faint of heart.  We decided Sunday morning when we got up and that is was time to head out.  More snow was forecasted and we didn't want to risk anymore trees coming down... what are the odds? I don't know but we didn't want to find out.  And boy were we glad we left.  The 90 min drive in on sunday to the trail head took 5.5 hours on the way out.  We hit the summit and rode the brakes in my truck all the way down.  Idaho is cheap on guard rail and I thought a few times we were going to find out what lay at the bottom.  We drove 8 hours that day, got a room and then hit the road at 5am.  We had a pit stop to make at a taxidermist office in Ennis to get my buddy's bull from 2 years ago.  Arrived back home Tuesday morning around 2am, I haven't hugged and kissed my family that much in a long time.  What a trip.  We didn't bring home any animals- and had an experience none of us will forget, but we still had a great time.  The scenery was amazing, the group of friends became closer then before and our outfitter couldn't have been more helpful and supportive from a drop camp perspective.  Plus we got to remind him daily about almost killing us and his camp selection needs to be revisited.  Idaho 2019 one for the record books.    
    • Thanks something to think about.
