Hopefully Mack lines up against Clemmings; that would be a good test.

Also Amari Cooper on Trae Waynes will be fun to watch if it happens.

A Ponder pick-6 would be delicious.

a few things that i'm looking forward to seeing:

- Amari Cooper (and Waynes covering him)
- Matt Khalil vs. Khalil Mack
- our defense continuing to play well
- our QBs (especially Teddy) continuing to be efficient


a little weird that we play them in the regular season as well, but that's a long ways away.

I want to see the reserves do a better job protecting the football. The Team should have scored 40+ points against Tampa Bay.

I'd like to see Bridgewater finish a drive with a passing touchdown, throw the ball into the endzone more than once.

The offensive line needs to continue to keep Bridgewater clean.

I want to see repeat from the Tampa Bay game by the special teams units.

I want to see Kendricks get some snaps with the one's. I really like what I've seen from both Cole and Kendricks, but now it's time to see what Kendricks can do against better competition.

Like Kendricks, I want to see Exum get some playing time with the first team. Blanton had a very good game against Tampa Bay, but Exum has come up with a couple of takeaways during his time. Let's see if he can do it against better competition.

Hope to see Barr and Crichton get some action, but I'm not so sure that will happen yet.

Hope to see continued excellence from the d line

Most of all I wanna see Teddy strech it out more. His number have been better that his actual performance imo. Not saying hes been bad at all and really the sample size is way too samle to draw real conclusion from, but he's still too quick to checkdown (continued issue from last year) especially on 3rd down.

Safe throws are good, but you gotta keeps drives alive. And, at least according to Arif Hassan, things were open down field a few times when he settled for the shorter (safer) throw.

Oh how things will change when #5 gets to play with #28. Laughing

Things I'm looking for:

Continued play from Kalil, I noticed they had the TE chipping a lot against TB (anyone else see that?)

Clemmings is an obvious one. I like that there are 3 more preseason games for him to test the waters.

Patterson. Great TD, stupid penalty against TB. Love the WR depth thus far.

Will Crichton and Yankey finally play?

Waynes continue to make and learn from mistakes.

I'd also like to see Exum and Kendricks get some time with the 1's.

ah, footballs back and the Vikings are once again doing fairly well to start off the preseason. Hopefully this keeps up throughout the year as well!

Rain day down here in SW Minnesota so I figured I'd come see what y'all are bickering about on the ole FF!

Few things I've noticed this preseason..

Waynes is exactly what we knew he was in college. Fast, and covers space well. One on one he can tend to get beat, but he is at least there. Its preseason so I am fine with him making plays on balls and contesting the WR even if a penalty arrives. Let him figure that out now.

Cole is still the same player. So many splashes. Stands out when you watch him. First game stood out making excellent plays on the ball and defenders, last game stood out by him struggling at times.

Clemmings needs more playing time. These next three games will be a big learning curve for him playing against the speed of the OLB's and DE's in the NFL. The one thing that I believe will help him is his athletisim.


All the young guys have been showing some spark, really getting after it trying to decide who is going to make the cut, It's fun watching. Haven't felt this way about watching this team in a while. Little bit of confidence is Minnesotaland is always nice.

Few players I'd like to play a little more with higher caliber players on the field: Price, Exum, Bykowski, Hunter. Young guys trying to make the team that I believe could have something. Exum is the only one I can see with a starting chance, but Price has played very well. He had his off the field issue, but he looks like he could be an excellent player.

what do you want to test, his butt padding? Laughing

but seriously, this game should be a fun teaser for the reg season matchup. a lot of eyes (justfiably so) will be on Teddy and Carr, but after seeing what went down with Loadholt i'm just hoping for an injury free game.

as for the game itself, though, since the teams play each other in the reg season, i'm expecting a LOT of vanilla to not give too much away against each other

I think we're going to see an improved Raiders team here. they've upgraded plenty this offseason and some of these younger guys (Carr, Murray, Mack) should all be better in year 2 as starters. still, I like the Vikings depth over the Raiders.

hopefully no one suffers any injuries this game, we can keep the penalties down, and some of these younger guys can shine.

Ponder and Richardson in the same backfield...that'll be a sight... Razz

I'll go Vikings 24 Raiders 13

Unfortunately, Del Rio, Tice, and Musgrave are the coaches.

I disagree with this. Good QBs check down. Not every drive that doesn't result in points is a failure. I'd rather he check down than throw a risky pass that results in an INT.

We don't need a gunslinger like Brett Favre for the offense to be successful.
