  1. Anything is better than Matt Kalil at LT. Carolina paying the worst LT in the NFL $55 million seems like an even more insane move. Other than his rookie year Kalil has been incredibly awful, not only a poor blocker but showing almost zero effort, taking numerous pre-snap and holding penalties and just generally sandbagging the entire offense. Any time the Vikings would start putting a drive together, you just knew eventually Kalil would jump on one of the first downs and put an end to the whole thing. I agree with the rest, I just wanted to point out how terrible Kalil has been. Also, how crazy is the tackle market when Kalil and Reiff are getting that kind of money?
  2. Pretty sure that is just the ones taken in picks 1-3 of round one, Leaf was taken second overall in 1998 for example and that lists him as a second rounder. Charlie Batch was a second rounder that year and isn't even listed.
  3. Nice of the refs to save the Packers a timeout for no apparent reason...
  4. ...
  5. The article gives absolutely no reasoning as to why building a stadium for billionaires is a good idea. Just a mayor and a developer(who stand to directly gain from the stadium) who claim it will benefit the city without any factual basis for their stance. In Minnesota, we just built billionaire Zygi Wilf a stadium after voting based on the idea that electronic pull tabs would actually generate money(they lost money, none of which came out of Zygi's pocket of course and none of the politicians ever had to answer any questions regarding the lies they told) and then when that was an utter failure, they decided to impose a vice tax on cigarettes. The first thing the Wilfs did once construction began on the stadium was begin cutting the things that they would have had to pay for, then they sold the naming rights and then they sold personal seat licenses and personalized bricks outside the stadium. Before a game was ever played at the stadium they had already made more money than they had invested. Interestingly the committee created to oversee the development of the stadium is already in trouble for abusing their suites at the stadium, after it was discovered they have been giving free tickets and parking to friends, family and politicians. http://www.startribune.com/stadium-bill-sponsor-u-s-bank-stadium-oversight-committee-is-ugly-government-that-must-be-changed/403760896/
  6. Why even complete that? Throw it at his feet and kick the FG....
  7. Lewis totally scored but New England didn't bother challenging....
  8. Miller hurts his ankle trying to burn clock forcing the Texans to use a timeout and stopping the clock for Jacksonville. But Bortles throws the interception to end it anyways.
  9. It isn't garbage time if its a tie game...
  10. Icing the kicker backfires on Reid. What a crazy ending...
  11. Vikings just got a gift first down. The spot was terrible to begin with and he didn't even catch the ball.
  12. No, Thielen got knocked stupid. I was correcting the guy who said he hadn't gotten a target.
  13. I don't know, he was being evaluated but I did not see him go off, he may return. He got hit extremely hard though.
  14. He was the target on the play he got KOed....
  15. Second false start by a WR on third down for the Vikings. Just crazy the stupid penalties the Vikings are committing today. Finally putting a drive together and Thielen gets knocked silly and then Bradford fumbles a few plays later.
