Yes, let's restructure the contract of one of the best gaurds in the game to over pay the QB in the future. Love the choice there Dallas.

Vikings fan checking in. 
 

I know we have our own thread, but can only search 30 days back on the app. 
 

bummed about Danielle Hunter going on the 3 week IR. Hopefully it’s only 3 weeks. Wouldn’t be the Vikings without starting off with a major injury. Skol!

SUPERBOWL: Saints vs Chiefs, Chiefs win

Saints LMFAO. They couldn’t even beat the Vikings, who then got embarrassed by SF49. Tell me how the Saints are going to make it when Brees is old, shot, can’t throw deep anymore and he’s a proven choke artist now 


ouch!

Damn bro I think he just treated us both like OBJ’s chest.

^ he has a good point. Big Arm QBs are always sought after and that drove his draft stock up. Having a big arm means shit if you dont bit the WR. Hes still young so many he can get it together.

The bigger issue is him saying he wants to run less. If he does that then defenses will not spy him as much and add an extra guy in coverage. I think hes taking one of his best weapons away by trying that at this stage in his career.

Allen definitely needs to improve throwing. He can only rush for so long

Nuke negotiating his own contract and getting the largest non-QB contract ever may get more guys to drop agents.

I dont think he deserves to get paid like Kelce and Kittle. Hes not them but hes very good. Kelce is simply better and Kittle is younger and better. 

Factor in hes not an ascending talent and Dallas Goedert is the best #2 TE in football by most accounts. Is Ertz was not there Goedert would be a good starting TE.

Ertz has 2 things working in his favor. 1. Hes Wentz best friend and favorite target. 2. The Eagles WRs cant stay healthy it seems.

He should be paid a top 5 TE deal but if he expects Kelce/Kittle money then he can walk.

I'm pumped to watch some football. Yeah, I could do without the blm bullshit but hopefully it's toned down and if I'm being honest I don't mind it as long as they're not specifically supporting BLM organization. 

 

I'm def not going to get triggered and stop watching unless it just becomes n>

Hahahah that's a good use of the meme. 

I was thinking about this yesterday though. Burrow has not got much down grading for only having 1 good season in college. Well it was the single greatest QB season in history but it's still only 1 season. I only say this as other college players who come out of no where and have amazing season do have detractors who mention it often. I have not seen Burrow get this. Could have just missed it though.

Remember Paxton Lynch?

 

Obviously Burrow is not Paxton Lynch but I do think he has been a bit overrated. He spent 3 years in college being an ok game manager and his senior year benefited from a better offensive system.

 

Now, to be fair to him, the previous season at LSU they were running an offense from the 1960s. He's a tough one to judge right now. I am excited to see what he can do. Though, more excited to see Tua.
