Do you realize where the team ranks in pass defense? Do you realize Dantzler, who played well last year as a rookie, can't crack the lineup that includes THE WORST CORNERBACK in the NFL?

I realize I'm not close enough to the situation to take Dantzler side. I also realize he called out his bosses in front of millions of people. That's still bulshitt in my opinion.

I hope it will work out. I'm optimistic.

I do like how he deleted his tweet. Who doesn't throw shit out there in this day and age because of frustration and think otherwise tout suite. Some jobs you get fired for doing that. In football some want to get fired so they can go to a different team. Can't do that in my profession.

All I know about Adam Zimmer is what I saw in a "mic'd up" situation. I wasn't impressed with his schtick.

Dantzler was pretty good for a rookie, but not necessarily that good as an NFL CB. You could definitely see the potential, but his ascension was hardly a gimme, IMO. After years of watching Zimmer's secondaries, I'm more inclined to believe he's the problem. Guys can't just choose to line up 9 yards off the LOS over and over. If Dantzler is redeemable, redeem him. If PP and Breeland can't play Zimmer's way, or the scheme is setting them up to fail, FFS adjust the scheme to the personnel you have.

So impressive when you consider the overall play of his OL.


Cousins is on fire!

Nice to see the D adjust in the 2nd half, when was the last time that happened?



Oh, I don't know. Last week? 2 weeks ago?


Really?

How about your boy Zimmer makes an easy and obvious adjustment and sits the CB who is ranking last in the NFL.

Well if we can't get Breeland off the field maybe we can start Everson over Wonnum and Weatherly. Everson has outperformed those guys tremendously.

I just assumed by "D adjust in the 2nd half" you meant the D played better in the second half than it did in the first half. But I've been wrong before.

Right. I was trying to be semi-accurate with out coming off as too old.

Retirement is a good gig, though.

NFL Power Rankings have the Vikes at 16:

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer called it the best offensive game of his Vikings tenure. Kirk Cousins led Minnesota on three touchdown drives in the first half, then engineered a trio of second-half field-goal marches that chewed up more than 20 minutes of game time in a 30-17 win over the Seahawks at raucous U.S. Bank Stadium. Cousins has been, to be blunt, one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL through three weeks. "It's been a different Kirk," wide receiver Adam Thielen said. "He's just locked in and on time, he's trusting it." Credit is due, both to the forever-scrutinized Cousins and Klint Kubiak, a first-year offensive coordinator who has found an instant groove.

I’m retired, but work when I want.. … more money.. LOL

I’m trying to get a good 20 years of what I want, in.

Workin that bucket list.

Three things that me, as a Boomer, still do, despite the judgment of Mills, and GenX,Y,Z….

E-mail instead of just text.

Denim jean shorts, or “jorts”

Cash.

Go fys.

Three things they all do that annoy me.

Talk, text and drive with a cell phone in one hand and eyes on it instead of the road.

Karen, anyone, with their self entitlement.

Consider manual labor at anything, abhorrent.

Would our safety play, be any better if they could rely on.. oh.. cornerbacks to cover their assignment, and tackle?

Obviously.

Fn Breeland has made a few plays, but his coverage skills are Wasswa Serwanga, bad.

There was some talk on Zone Coverage about going after Sherman. Does he have anything left and would he hurt team chemistry?

If he has anything left I sign him.
