Sounds like the Vikings almost had a shot to bring him back! Seahawks called the Broncos about Julius Thomas and the Browns about Jordan Cameron. Both were shot down, and the Seahawks were ready to straight up cut him at that point.
I'll do some digging and write a post tonight. I always love looking towards the future, and with a first year coach and a terrible offense. There would be plenty to fix up.
This is a list of players whom I am not sure have signed extentions yet. RB: Darren McFadden. Hasn't done much but he is with the freaking Oakland RaidersWR: No real big names coming, but I will flirt with Torrey Smith with BAL. Nice wish list SimmionTE: Jordan Cameron CLEOT: Erik Pears BUFG: We may have depth and I don't know names of this position that well, but anyone would be better than Charlie Johnson. Yankey might be in the future on our squad. And Fusco just signed a 5 year deal. DL: I like it. We got depth and young guys. LB: Sam Acho ARI, I think he is a WLB. Didn't seen many ILB I liked. CB, Didn't see many names I liked and were young. Maybe just continue with our guys and a rookie. S: Taylor Mays, CIN. SS that actually has speed and power hitting. Blanton has neither. And he worked with Zimmer. Those are a few names. I think Acho would be my top choice of going after, but I think he will get resigned if not already.
Bleacher Report just put out two exciting articles for Vikings fans. One talks about how great Barr is already, but he still has stuff to get better at! The other is how Norv's adjustments to the run game are coming to fruition and that it's coming together well for this ragtag group that was supposed to be built around AD.
Nice list Simmion.....I agree about the LB group. Just need a total change on a few of them. Woner what will happen with McFadden. We do need a solid north and south runner with hands to team up with McKinnon as Matt is not the answer. Taylors Mays is the one that really interests me.....he's that ideal size and physical type of players......how is he doing? I thought he was having trouble adjusting to the NFL? Haven't heard much about him lately. It's tough finding good O-Line help as everyone needs them.
Yeah Hutch, He has struggled to adapt. But he is one of the more true SS type that is available. I would like to give Blanton some time, but you can only make him so strong, and that extra weight of strength might make him slower. And as far as McFadden, I really think he could work on a team with a better run blocking line. He is fast and nimble for his tall lanky frame. I heard rumors that he could be a guy we target in a trade while just giving up a 7th rounder. But we are no longer in that position. McKinnon I like, but I just read a stat that he is rated worst in the league at pass protection. He is young, but I like what he can bring to the team so far. Asiata I want to root for. He seems to have the bruiser build. He is big, but he crumbles at first contact 90% of the time. Doesn't push the tackler at all.
Watching the game... I should retract my statement of Griffen being stat greedy. He does what he does. Our LBs are lacking. Hutch to answer your question on who to release. Greenway doesn't do anything for me anymore. He didn't play terrible on that 4th and long completion, but all he does is tackle. It's a tough spot for me because he is a fan fav. but LBs should be play makers too. Barr is chasing down guys from behind and out sprinting DBs. The guy is seriously ridiculous. Greenway isn't meant to cover any receiver. He is a tackler that can't keep up with the current league. I love our defense as a whole. Josh Robinson is fast and meant for this man to man style. He can keep up with the WR, same with Rohdes, both need to work on turning heads, but this style doesn't seem to fit Greenway. It's all speed. (Barr has both speed and strength). I like Hodges as well. Only guy I would replace is Greenway. On offense, at this point, I would replace the entire OLine. Or run pass plays that would avoid the right side since Loadholt is a run heavy dude. You already know my stance on C. Johnson. Kalil has to turn it around. I can't imagine him being as bad as he is after his rookie season. I have no idea whats wrong with him. Berger should start at RG if Sullivan can play again. He always shows up to play and can't be worse than Ducasse.
Regarding Rhodes I just don't get it...they guy either is in position and doesn't get his head around or is getting beat badly. His lack of consistency will drive anyone nuts. I like Berger and you know my stance on Sullivan...they guy isn't that good and didn't deserve the extention he got.....May not happen next draft but we will hopefully use a high pick on a top center in a couple of years. That position is far to important and Sullivan seems to not read defenses well enough to set protections, one big reason Teddy is getting killed.
Well....I think I saw a different game today. The defense was awesome. This was a great performance today. I was impressed with Teddy and that 2 min drill but outside of that he was not good at all. Guys were open and just missed them and then taking check downs on third down that have zero chance at being successful is garbage IMO......That's being way to conservative and he needs to give our guys a chance to make plays. If he just plays like an average QB today this game is over and we are easily winning by double digits. The guy is a rookie and his game will improve but outside he has a ways to go........
No No, we saw it the same. The defense I loved, except on the last drive when they can't just stop the drive and let in a lead changing TD. I don't know why they seem to fall apart and let every pass suddenly complete and covert, it just pisses me off. I was floored when they allowed that TD. They way our defense played, we shouldn't be having to force our pathetic offense into a 2 minute drill to save the game.
Apparently the Bucs are listening to offers for Mark Barron in addition to Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson. Remember when he was in a draft tier of safeties by himself? Also, the top of that draft is just terrible. Besides Luck, we're lucky we got at least one good season out of Kalil. Luke Kuechly is a stud too. I think he was the 9th pick that year?
