  1. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    We'll see if purchasing Cousins nets the Vikes a Superbowl, if it does it will undoubtedly be worth it, but I feel like the premise of "the money is done", but also having a contract year in 2020 are a bit incongruent. I know we ****ed it up bad not getting a deal done, and done early for whatever silly hangups we had over it, but I dunno that I would wan't to be in on the deal he has now. Maybe others feel differently. 2018 will pretty much hinge on Smith at least managing somewhere near the ballpark of the quality QB play we have seen the last few years, and I do think he is up to it. And I don't think he needs Top 10 and Top 5 matching components across the board to do it, like some have said in some heavy backhanding. I think some of that comes honestly and some of it comes from missing the chance to really rub Dan's nose in it with a 4-12 Colt or Rookie QB season. Here's to whenever the games start.
  2. Welcome! Adonis Alexander Adonis Alexander is an NFL sized defensive back. Read about his chances of being drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft. College: Virginia Tech #36 Position: Cornerback Height: 6-3 Weight: 193 40 Time: 4.92 Video Clemson, 2016. Notes Incredible body control. Amazing interception. Has a pro frame at 6-3 that he needs to fill out. Also, it is unlikely that his 40 time is still 4.92. Played safety in high school. Played safety as a freshman at Virginia Tech. Plenty of explosion in his legs. If he posts another 41 inch vertical, that will impress NFL scouts at the 2018 NFL Combine. Second team Freshman All-American, as a safety, 2015. Arrested on marijuana possession in April 2016. Suspended for 2016 season opener. Virginia Tech may consider moving Adonis Alexander back to safety in 2017. NFL Draft Board Breakdown The NFL Draft Board. Adonis Alexander has the frame NFL scouts dream of when they consider defensive backs. Half of the Seattle Seahawks All-Pro secondary is 6-3. From the Kevin King page. Daniel Jeremiah has Kevin King going to the Seattle Seahawks in the first round (of the 2017 NFL draft) with pick number 26. The Seattle Seahawks gravitate to bigger defensive backs, Richard Sherman 6-3 and Kam Chancellor 6-3. If an NFL team drafted Adonis Alexander as a cornerback, it would surprise some people. Alexander has the frame to play safety, and would make a great cornerback. But, cornerback requires a certain speed to keep up with the 4.22, 40, John Ross’s of the NFL. There are two things you can’t teach, height and speed. Although speed can be adjusted by focusing on fast twitch muscle fibers, there is no changing a person’s height. That works in favor of Adonis Alexander. Adonis Alexander’s Draft Prospectus Adonis Alexander has a full year of football in front of him. It would probably be best if Virginia Tech moved him to safety and he puts up All-American numbers. If he does that, his chances of getting drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft increase dramatically. But, there is always a challenge. Taking a look at the 2017 NFL Draft Board, NFL teams favor cornerback over the safety position. For now though, WalterFootball.com has Adonis Alexander in the first round of his 2018 NFL mock draft. And that should motivate any college player. http://www.nfl.com/videos/up-to-the-minute/0ap3000000935390/Pelissero-A-potential-first-round-talent-will-enter-2018-Supplemental-Draft-this-summer&icampaign="search-video-adonis+alexander"

    This is really what its about. Going to take some winning before most see the upcoming season as anything more than a chance to tally up points at the end and see who was most rightest. Here's hoping for it...

    Nice stat here for our guy if you're into advanced metrics, worth a read. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-pff-qb-grading-most-effective-tool-there-is?utm_content=buffer1028f&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=nfl
  5. 3 on your list is an admission of having a problem, not the debacle itself. It is in that way a positive step, not a negative one. The other two I still think are on the clock as to whether they're just eyesores, or actual set-the-franchise-back-10-years type of failures. I don't think player acquisition has been trash since Scott was shown the door (it's only been a hot minute, but still) and we haven't even played a Cousinsless down so... too early to tell, IMO.
  6. I both agree (like the roster quite a bit, and this hire shows some level of humility in how the team has failed to be accommodating to the fanbase), and see how someone wouldn't considering the Cousins and McCloughan departures and everything surrounding those occurred in that time period.
  7. The truth is, IF we ever start to see a real turnaround, it will begin and soldier through a long period of no one believing it to actually be happening.

    Until we win consistently, 33% of the fan base will be stuck on the last guy, and 33% will be looking forward to the next guy. There's not going to be any getting behind of anyone in the interim. It sucks, but it is what it is.
  9. I see no reason that both of these things cant be true.
