I don't watch them that much but Cards D doesn't really impress me that much.

We will be fine if we can run the ball well and not be one dimensional. A lot of that will depend on us staying in the game so we don’t have to keep passing. They are good pass defense team so you don’t want to be one dimensional.

So the guys on tv said cards struggle at home. Not sure only having two losses means they have struggled. Cards haven’t had that hard of a schedule either.

Cards are 3-2 at home, and 7-0 on the road. Compare the two and they definitely struggle more at home.

Cards losing helps brady for #1 seed. I don't know about the tie breakers but the packers will probably lose soon and Cards too, maybe they lose to us? :D

GB is going to win it all, I have money on it. Put $500 on them to start the year. Rodgers wants that 2nd ring, puts a QB in a different light when that happens. That was my pick before season and I am sticking with it. I had Buffalo winning the AFC, thankfully I had no money on that lmao .

 Was thinking the same thing last night.. really don't wanna see another super bowl with Tom Brady.. 49ers vs Chiefs was so refreshing!

I don’t want another Brady or Mahomes super bowl in any shape or fashion.

I find the Patriots more concerning than the Cardinals. It's an advantage to play at LOS instead of Gillette Stadium. The Cardinals game is in Arizona and on primetime, where that team doesn't play as well. We just have to get a win against NE, and it will be a good start for the other games.

If this team can't win on the road in primetime, then it will never do anything in the playoffs if we make it there. With the AFC as stacked as it is now, the odds of us ever making the playoffs as more than a low division winner are small. Which means we'll probably have one home playoff game game at most unless some 5-7 seed faces us in the AFC Championship. We have to win on the road. We can't use that as an excuse. These are talented, professional athletes and they have to overcome that to win a SB. We as fans can't use that excuse 5 years into a rebuild anymore either.

    • I'm far behind in player Evaluations, but I'd say a couple of things.   While the testing and drills at the Combine are very important, and let the fans see what would otherwise be available to only teams up close, I'd be wary of not taking Combine, senior Bowl, etc., over the college tape. Combine measurements should supplement in player Evaluations and should not be taken at the forefront.   The way some players got moved up multiple rounds after their performance in senior Bowl and subsequent player rankings and mock drafts are cautionary tales, but it would continue to happen after Combine too.   It's very important to make sure the player checks all the boxes or as much as possible but essentially play on the field, and what we get from Combine does surely factor into some of the boxes.   That's one of the reasons I don't speak much in praise of Ballard (not against either, but just holding back judgement) due to his propensity to have players check boxes essentially on player measurements, metrics, size, arm lengths, athleticism and RAS scores.    As long as better Combine performance moves up players few spots on same round or day, I'd be okay with it.   When a player shoots up multiple rounds up or down the board or too much to get close to Day 1/2 all of a sudden, based on Combine measurements, I'd be wary of those evaluations. 
    • A large part of vocal Vikings fans in the popular forum are homers, and if we get another Christian Ponder, they'd spend two or more years hyping him up as better than Kirk Cousins.. in fact, they spent more than half a decade saying Kirk will take next step and be a force in playoffs or important games. Funnily, he started playing more freely only in last two years as he has achieved enough financial freedom and he ended up injured, which is why Kirk has been very careful to not get injured for most of his career at the expense of making plays outside the structure. Kirk is pretty smart taking care of his career and earnings and subsequent contracts heavily favored on his terms, and fans didn't realize, some even now.    The reason I'm saying all that is respectability is very subjective. I don't know what's worse for the respectability than not even sniffing play-off success for decades save for a year or two here and there and having won no SBs in 6 decades but just being a Middling team year after year, not picking even close to either top 5 or bottom 5 in the draft.    It's better to lose QB and WR, if it helps find a franchise QB for Vikings. Like Bears, Vikings franchise QB history is only good for homers. There's nothing worse than being perennial average team, and trying to find FUN in the season. Vikings don't have an RB and run game too, after discarding Dalvin Cook needlessly.   I'd say respectability be damned, be absolute worst if you've to, and only focus Vikings should have is finding their franchise QB. If this GM is not looking seriously at that, I'm not sure what their plan will be. This GM has looked like running headless chicken so far, but he's got good HC and DC for now. Let's see what they do, but they don't need to sell the farm to find franchise QB, they just need to have sole focus in finding one in next few years and grab the opportunity with both hands when it is presented or do make necessary moves to get that opportunity present itself.    Having said that, we talk about trading JJ only because he's made some statements and has been visibly upset or get lonely during losses or when the team is gonna miss playoffs. If Diggs does the same, they'd call him absolute Diva but JJ has made more scathing remarks publicly so we're thinking it may not be good idea to have an elite WR get disgruntled every year and Rather help him get to a contender (Like Texans as you said) and utilize the return in finding a franchise QB. 
    • I do want to follow this up with, If I see someone that really wow's me, I would consider taking them over Bowers. You have to be open minded in this thing and study different area's. I just see Bowers as a can't miss. If Bowers and Odunze both are there at #15, I would be 50/50 on who to take. I doubt both will be there though.
    • I just seen this and normally I would agree with you about the Pacers, but I think they will be a very tough out in these playoffs. This team looks different than the one's that have recently had a decent record, but we knew would be 1 and done. They are #1 in offense is why. They can outscore almost every team in the league most nights. They would have a better record, but Haliburton missed 2 weeks earlier in the season. Boston is the only team in the East that looks dominant, but they tend to choke every year, so I am not even sold on them. I think the Pacers at worse end up with a #6, stay out of that playin and will win a series if not 2 this year.    Regarding Clark, she is the best College Basketball player I have ever seen with the exception of Cheryl Miller, Reggie's sister. That says a lot because players Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore, Brittney Griner, and Candice Parker who were no slouch in college.
