Garrett must have the best fucking "Guys, dont get me fired" pep talk ever. Never fails to get him to the playoffs then bounced right out.
I really don't know. You'd think the talent on this team is not 0-7 bad, but this team's offense is historically terrible without AJ Green. It's been that way for the entire Dalton era. AJ is necessary for the success of the offense. I just don't see a possible win until Jets. Though part of me wants to go 0-15 and enter the final week of the season with the Browns needing that win to make playoffs and we spoil it. Best 1-15 season ever.My thoughts this week.
Bengals...miss Marvin Lewis much? Think they are worse than the Miami LOLphins.
wat? He's the main reason why the Ravens aren't in the gutter. Not quite Russell Wilson levels of carrying his team, but up there.Lamar Jackson is soooo over-rated. Come on ESPN. Stop talking about him please.
Outside being fast...what does he do well? I mean I've seen 3 games of his now, and he is Michael Vick 2.0. Exciting to watch, but you know that shit will come to an end.wat?

I did love the jumping up and down stomping his feet temper tantrum from that one delay of game though.
Don't really know where you are getting this perspective from, the vikings have only played 3 home games this season and are 2-2 on the road. While the packers have played 5 out of 7 at home. The vikings have played all three of their divisional games on the road already.Vikings are a different team at home than on the road. Thats how they got to 5-2.
Look at Cousins ratings on the road vs at home.Don't really know where you are getting this perspective from, the vikings have only played 3 home games this season and are 2-2 on the road.

The Vikings have one of the deepest rosters in all of football, they are currently 3rd in point differential, and 6th in both total offense and defense. Through the first four games of the season Zimmer really forced the issue of running the football with too much Cousins under center. Thielen and Diggs being outspoken about the offense after the bears loss got the attention of the ownership and coaching staff and a lot of changes were implemented into the offense. Stefanski now has more freedom to be aggressive in the passing game and get Cousins rolling out through play action where he is a lot better. Cousins spends a lot less time under center which allows him to see the field better. The new scheme has also helped the offensive line tremendously, they have gone from a bad offensive line to a slightly above league average line in the span of a year. The main concern now lies with the defense and particularly the play of the corner-backs. Rhodes and Waynes have been really bad this year. Xavier Rhodes is allowing 80% completion of passes thrown his way, while Waynes is allowing 74.4%. The two starting corners have become the biggest liability on the vikings roster this year, something I never thought I'd see in a Mike Zimmer defense. Depth at the position has been an issue for the Vikings going into this season as well, with Hill being suspended, Hughes coming off ACL, and Alexanders elbow injury. This has forced the vikings into awkward defensive packages with the back up strong safety having to play nickel corner in some situations. Hughes and Alexander look healthy now and have been playing outstanding when they see the field. The vikings should get Holton hill back in 2 weeks which should improve the depth of the position significantly. I expect the vikings defense too tighten things up and improve for the second half of the season, making this team very dangerous going forward.
Cousins is a classic match up guy, too. His last 3 games were against 3 of the 5 bottom teams in passing yards allowed per game (going into this past week). No real surprise he could look good and "get on track" against those 3.Look at Cousins ratings on the road vs at home.
At home 140, 112, 138.
On the road 53, 91, 138, 141
3 for 3 home. 2 for w on the road.
Now you can make the argument they just started slow or the adjustments made after the second horrendous game helped. I think that is fair.
They lost twice as much at home in 2018 as well. Same with 2017.
