Vikings started 1 - 5 and are currently barely out. Does anybody think they could make it in?

 

@NFLfan

 

We have a chance but teams in the West and South are better. How many teams get in per division this year? 8?

 

What I think is crazy is that the 4-7 Giants might make the playoffs. haha

@NFLfan Kirk is in Captain Kirk Sigh GIF by Star Trek

 

I know. I pile on Kirk. He has been better lately. He is actually stepping up and running to get first downs. :)

 

Justin Jefferson has been great. He has over 1000 yards in 12 games. I don't think he played much in the first games. Kudos to @danlhart87 and @EastStreet. They liked him coming out of the draft.

Jefferson alone is a reason to watch your team. That man is a highlight reel each week.

You have a good rookie WR. There are so many good ones this year. Even Mims is looking good for the Jets.

I always root for the Vikings. They are my favorite team in the NFC and were my favorite team before becoming a Colts fan. 

I still miss seeing the snow coming down on the purple. Bud Grant standing on the sidelines has always been a great memory of mine.

Fran Tarkenton is easily a top 20 QB of all-time IMO. They had some very good teams in the 70's. Their 98 team with Moss, Carter, Reed, and Cunningham was great in reality but they blew it in the Championship Game, bad memories.

Don't remind me. That NFCCG was so disappointing. Our offense was electric. We had at least 5 guys on the '98 team who would later be inducted into the Hall of Fame: Randall McDaniel, Chris Doleman (RIP), Cris Carter, John Randle, and Randy Moss. I may have forgotten someone. The 2009 team with Brett Favre could have made it to the SB the year the Colts lost to the Saints.

Yeah 2009 should've won the NFC, Peterson fumbled too much but that team was very good. Favre played out of his mind that season. I still think the 98 team was the best team you guys ever had.

Yup. I love Pittman, and he'll be a good one. Still doesn't mean I shouldn't be jealous of your Ferrari.  :D

 

And yes, this last WR class is smokin'. This year's should be good too. The appearance will not be the same due to covid, but last year some said that this year's class might be as good or better. I think, due to covid, some teams are going to get some incredible value and studs in the middle and possibly late rounds simply because of the lack of games for many teams.

I think in year 2 Pittman will break out. He has major potential.

I agree. I have to admit he's doing better "gliding" than I thought he would. He's probably not doing as well on the outside though that I thought he would. But yep, year two should be a nice jump.

 

I'm just stoked we finally have what looks like a top tier X. I love Pascal, but he's simply limited in terms of ceiling.

 

I'm also excited to see what Patmon has to offer.

Easily... That was like my first year even paying attention to football. Was only 7-8 but I remember The Thanksgiving game it seemed whole extended family were cowboys fans. But they just got torched by moss that day. 

 

Anyways, I remember the vikings that year and I was barely see paying attention. I couldn't believe the falcons "beat" them.

    • That's what I was thinking
    • I think we're in good shape either way, it just adjusts our strategy with some extensions, and maybe we can't add another FA.    For a team like the Eagles, it completely changes their approach. If the cap is $175m, they can't keep Wentz without completely gutting the rest of their roster.
    • The trend is for the best offenses to be the teams contending for the Superbowl.  Are you aware of the basic Defense wins championships mantra?  You know Offense scores points?   I assume you are   Interstingly, the last really good D to win Superbowl was PHI and they had to score 44 points to do it v. No. 1 yanked Offense NE. And the Foles led offense carried them through the playoffs.  Before that it was Mannings Broncos.   Also intersesting is the 13-3 NE over LAR SB, featured the 25th and 27th ranked Ds in football.       The way to win in today's NFL is with high powered NFL passing offenses.  The rules are and have been set up that way increasingly over the last 20 years.   It's a lot different than when we were kids.   So like I said, it's usually Offense wins championships, Defense tries to hold teams to FGs.  There are occasionally anomalies but this is bascially accurate in todays' NFL.
    • There’s a good reason why defense everywhere suffered badly.   I can explain it in one word.  And you know the word.  Come on EVERYBODY say it with me!!!!   COVID!!   C-O-V-I-D!!   Defenses were poorer in the NFL and the college level as well.   Much less practice.  Much less contact.  Much less close up coaching.  Far more walk throughs.      When the world returns to normal, defenses will get better.  So will football. 
    • Not surprising at all. Here is how he ranked in other categories:   Intended Air Yards/PA - 26 Completed Air Yards/PA - 28 Completed Air Yards/Completion - 29 YAC/Completion - 2   First...it cannot be ignored that the Colts played (by far) the easiest schedule on offense. The average defense they played would have ranked ~23rd in DVOA. And that average was "deflated" somewhat by playing #1 defense PIT...when they clearly weren't the #1 defense anymore (after losing players to injury). That definitely played a factor.   Second...these numbers are as much Reich as it is anything. Reich uses the mesh concept (like he did with JB last year)...which creates open players in space and allows for YAC.    In fact, River's numbers (in the above categories) were very similar to JB's numbers last season. But Rivers is just a much better QB...and throws with better anticipation and accuracy. Throw in a HR hitter like Taylor and a young talented WR like Pittman...and you (naturally) have much better QB production with these concepts.   With the Colts offensive system, I think they could have immediate success with just about any talented QB they brought in...including a rookie. And if that QB is mobile...it will open up the playbook even more and raise the ceiling.   So I am in the minority here...but Rivers coming back doesn't move the needle for me. It's a lateral and stagnant move. I was all for the signing Rivers last off season...because it was the best of not-so-ideal situation. But if anything, it just proved that this team is ready to take the next step forward...and that means getting the right QB. Now is the time to make that move. So the only way I want Rivers back is if they get aggressive and move up to draft a QB who might need to sit for a part or all of a season.    TBH...I would rather roll the dice on Darnold and accept the risk of a reset year. I think he make a  good transition to this offense. And either he breaks out and suddenly you have a 24 year-old franchise QB...or he doesn't...and you have a reset year with the Colts in a much better position to draft a QB. Bringing back Rivers does nothing for the position long-term...and likely means another pick in the 20s.
