I maybe have the Vikings going 17-0 in the regular season. But IF they lose 3 games I see them highly likely going 14-3. It's low to highly possible they lose 5 games in which case I predict them going 12-5 depending on the accuracy of simple math. IF they lose more, I can see them going anywhere from 0-17 to 11-6 depending on the outcome of the final score. It's improbable to highly likely they go between 0-17 and 17-0, but there is a chance they fall between 4-13 and 13-4. Or more likely 16-1 to 1-16. There are several tricky, sway ridden, games which IF things go right could lead them to the playoffs or to the #1 overall pick in 2023, and that's marginally to wholly dependent not only on whether each starter decides to injure themselves but on who takes themselves out for the year.

These ironclad predictions are tough to do, but here in Kookville at least I'm out there with my predictions.

Bill, this post is pure gold...

Could Justin Jefferson be the first receiver to win NFL MVP?
Posted by Mike Florio on September 6, 2022, 2:23 PM EDT

For a receiver to win it, he needs to have a season that is historic, if not record-setting. And he needs to have a quarterback who prompts more shrugs of indifference than shouts of amazement.
No receiver has ever won the NFL’s MVP award. Not a single one. Could this be the year that changes?

The problem for great receivers is that there’s always a quarterback who made them great. Between the two, the quarterback will get the bulk of the votes — or at least enough of them to dilute the receiver’s tally.

Enter Justin Jefferson. Already one of the most accomplished receivers in the league despite playing for a defensive-minded head coach and two different offensive coordinators, new coach Kevin O’Connell is implementing a Rams-style offense that will make Jefferson into Minnesota’s answer to Cooper Kupp.

Last year, Jefferson had 108 catches and 1,616 receiving yards. This year, he could explode in the new offense.

With Kirk Cousins throwing the passes, the votes could skew toward Jefferson. Cousins would need to throw for more than 5,400 passing yards and 50 touchdowns to get serious consideration for MVP, or the Vikings would have to be the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

It’s more likely that Jefferson will go off statistically this year, possibly enough that he potentially enters the conversation to be the first ever receiver to be the Most Valuable Player in the NFL.

This is so funny to me...that the NFL world is so down on Cousins, that Florio floats the idea that Minnesota being in title contention would be credited to JJ with Cousins riding his coattails...hysterical!
