I guess Marquess Wilson left because the new regime of coaches are abusive. Something could be up (It is Mike Leach)


Yup after reading some articles I have changed my opinion. Wilson's Stepfather was encouraging him to quit the team after hearing what was going on.

Brinkley got abused in coverage against Detroit.

I wouldnt be surprised if the need for an athletic MLB catches up with the need for a WR.

Alec Ogletree had 10 tackles and a sack against Auburn last night.

That puts him at 61 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 int, and 4 PDs in 6 games this year.

Just to provide some balance to the argument that our offensive guards suck, we currently have the leading rusher in the NFL for the first time since 2008, a guy that admits he's not 100% back from his knee injury. It's a unit starting 2 new players, and one guy who moved positions, so essentially 3 out of 5 have been reshuffled.

I did notice interior pressure from Fairley and Suh mucking up a few passing plays, I also noticed Ponder stepping up and still making throws, a QB helping out his O-line.

Hey guys big Vikes fan here. This is my first post but anyways who are your guys favorite underclassmen receivers that maybe we'd draft in 2014?? I like Amari Cooper of Alabama. Marquis Lee would also pay dividends for us.. Thoughts??

I ask that because I really don't think there will be good value where we are picking in the 1st round to pick a receiver. Plus nobody in the 1st really jumps out at me.. Would love Coleman, Patterson, or Rogers in the 2nd though..

I was not sure where to post this but wanted to say something about this Manziel kid from Texas A & M. Manziel is the QB I hope we are in position to get in 3 years ! He is amazing with both passing and running. I watched the Alabama game and was just WOW'd. He is just a freshman which impressed me all the more.

The last time I felt this strong when watching a freshman it was a kid named Adrian Peterson in his freshman year at Oklahoma. I hope it works out with Manziel like it did with Peterson Smile

Amari Cooper is going to be a stud. Future top pick. The guy is outstanding already.

As far as guys not jumping out at you in the first, why not? Keenan Allen would be a perfect fit for this offense.

I just finished watching the last two Tennessee games (vs. Troy, vs. Missouri). Those teams aren't good by any means, but Hunter complete went off in those games, to the tune of 322 yards and 4 touchdowns.

More promising yet is the damage he did on deep routes. Where Patterson mostly contributed like Harvin does (RB, returner, YAC routes), Hunter caught several deep jump-balls, and overall seemed to make more plays down the field. Great hands, elite speed, and elite short-area quickness as well for such a big guy.

Based on his elite athleticism, frame, and the flashes he's shown, I wouldn't be surprised if he challenges Keenan Allen for the #1 ranked reciever going into the draft.

ď@ShawnZobel_DHQ: Just interviewed Howard LB Keith Pough, one of the top small schoolers. One of the best interviews I've had in 6 years. Special kid. Whoever drafts Pough is going to get a gemĒ


Anyone know much about him?

Pough: ďI donít care where I go. I donít care if I get drafted or in free agency, I donít care what team I play for ó Iíll go play butt naked in Green Bay in February, you know, just for an opportunity,Ē he said. ďAnd thatís really what it comes down to. Iím so passionate about the game, it doesnít matter who I play for. Iím just gonna be the best linebacker, teammate, special teamer on that team.Ē
