Justin Jefferson sets new franchise record for receiving yards in first 6 games. Surpassing the GOAT Randy Moss.

Kid is absolutely going to be a stud.

I was actually disappointed in those TDs for this reason. Falcons playing super soft because nobody cares and Kirk looks like less of a turd.

I have both Jefferson and Kirk on the bench for fantasy football. LOL.

He's been extremely hit and miss. Yards by game

26, 44, 175, 103, 23, 166. I dropped him after week 2 and picked up right away. Then I played him last week when he caught just 3 balls for 23 yards. Now I have him on my bench again this week.

He'll be back in the lineup after the bye. OBJ is riding pine for quite a while.

In fairness, he was barely playing in games 1 and 2. Olabisi Johnson started opposite Thielen those two weeks.

I'm honestly thinking Mitch Trubisky will be getting a call from MN next year. It'd be SOOOOOOOOO Minnesota to do that. You heard it hear first.

He has had some great grabs. Great to see him step in after losing Diggs and take some pressure off Theilen.

This would be such a MN thing. Tank but only tank well enough for the second or third best QB in his draft class.

So tell me how many QBs were drafted ahead of Russell Wilson?

You expect the Vikings to be able to pick a SB caliber QB when given more than one option? They'd probably go with a CB or the next Ponder. Pick #1 has been consensus since January 2019. That's the only pick I have faith they wouldn't blow.

I would bet the Wilfs basically said that Mike and Rick are not going anywhere. I doubt they make this move and potential subsequent ones to rebuild if they don’t have that security blanket.

Not a fan of what is pretty close to a 2 round drop. Likely high 2 round pick for a very likely low third round pick. But on the other hand Ngakoue was probably going to depart after this season so getting something back for him is better than nothing.

I saw somewhere if he left via free agency in the off season the Vikings would have received a compensation of a 3rd round pick. Makes the trade look worse now. They are just saving his money.

Edit-- Found it.

He and other Vikings came to my hometown when I was a kid and they played a charity basketball game. He was one of my favorite Vikings.

Class guy, gone too early.

There has been speculation he had CTE.

We moved to Deephaven in '78 and a start-up bank was made soon after at the corner of Mtka Blvd and 101. At their launch Matt Blair was there and gave autographs and he was one of the most personable and friendly fellows you could possibly hope to meet. Jocko Nelson was a family friend that was there also and it's actually one of my favorite "fan" memories of all time.
Currently under construction.

Just saw that Matt Blair died. Damn, he was fun to watch. Great linebacker and a kick blocking machine.
He and other Vikings came to my hometown when I was a kid and they played a charity basketball game. He was one of my favorite Vikings.
Ditto for my K-8 School. Fun to watch.

'89 here. Our class was responsible for the yearbook getting cancelled for 2 years. We were the most mis-behaved class from 6th grade to 8th grade, by all accounts. Side note: I was involved in a fight against St Al's, and that story lived on for a couple years. I played bouncyball, and in 8th grade, in the shared locker room, saw a guy shove my teammate, a teammate that was the epitome of the "Good game, guys" kind of guy. I literally jumped over a bench and came down with a hammer punch. Landed a few more punches before the coaches came in and separated me from that :censored: :censored:

My brother was 2 years behind me, also played bouncyball, so I went to see his games, of course. The St Al's coach remembered me, and being the self-righteous ass that he and his team was, specifically told his team to not interact. :) Those guys were effing aholes.

Vikings rookie CB Cam Dantzler taken off the field on a stretcher after laying motionless on the field. Scary scene. He was making a tackle and his head snapped backwards when he collided with Anthony Harris's hip.

Hope the stretcher was precautionary. 🙏🙏

Update from Leber regarding Dantzler: he does have full range of motion. X-rays at Lambeau came back negative. Under observation for concussion.

I bet Zimmer goes 3 runs up the middle, punts, and we lose in OT. Cause you have to play it safe. Heaven forbid a 1-5 team goes for the win.

It’s math. Down by 14 if you score a TD, you have better odds of winning if you go for 2 than taking the 1.

I would maintain that if you are the better team that you have a better chance of a win in OT so you play for the tie and go to OT.
Much less what QB is more clutch.
