    Not so much the color, other than both are darkish green. It's more the shape of the logo, combined with the fact that the lettering isn't as distinct as I would expect. The picture is blurry which probably made it worse than it really is. And hopefully we'll play them three times this year.

    The new helmets look too much like Eagles helmets to me.

    Brady’s steroids

    That logic unravels completely when you look at our draft history.
  4. Well now that Darron Lee is gone, that spot did open up.

    GAME OF THRONES (*SPOILERS ALERT*)

    Tyrion's joke...finally...
  6. There are faster players in the league but they are probably smart enough not to risk an injury chasing $10k and a little pride. https://nextgenstats.nfl.com/stats/top-plays/fastest-ball-carriers
  7. It's worth noting that Cousins had a very good year stats-wise last season. 4,300 yards, 30 TDs, 10 INTs, 70% completions. That's really good and more than good enough for playoffs. They scored more than their opponents, had better 3rd down conversion % and better red zone %. Their defense wasn't awful. It's actually hard to fathom how their record was so bleh.
  8. Between Hunt and Beckham, I find it hard not to root for the Browns to implode this year.
  9. Some of you are deliberately ignoring the point. Cousins had very good stats, but at the cost, he was going to handcuff any team that signed him and he isn't good enough to overcome that cap crunch. Guys like Rodgers and Brees can do it. Cousins is a good notch below them in talent and he can't. You say you would rather we signed Cousins and kept the picks so we could be 8-7-1 last year? Great...the problem for MIN is that they have one more year before the cap forces them to lose a lot of good players. If they don't win it all this year, they are probably done until that contract runs down. And they had a lot more talent going into last year than we could have possibly had. They had a shot. They blew it. We would never had even had a shot before that contract crushed us. I don't know if Sam will become better than Cousins. He certainly shows the potential, which is something we haven't seen in a long time. I didn't hate Cousins as a QB, but I hated him as a top-paid QB and I suspect so do a lot of Vikings fans now. I hope they enjoyed that cold day at MetLife last year, because there may not be much more for them to enjoy over the next few years.
  10. When you think you're legitimately just a QB away from winning it all after a 13-3 season and then overpay a guy with a truckload of guaranteed money, you really need to do better than 8-7-1 and missing the playoffs. That's a hard kick in the nether region.
  11. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2837179-minnesota-vikings-are-desperate-to-escape-the-nfls-worst-quarterback-trap?utm_source=cnn.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=editorial I'm only including some of the article, which is very long, but it's pretty good and very Jets-relevant for both the Cousins-Darnold thing, and the additional pain inflicted by them resigning Anthony Barr at a higher price. Maybe we'll have to take Rudolph off their hands to help make up for it? Thank god we dodged this particular bullet (no thanks to Macc who was all about trying to do it). We need to put our cap to use fully in the next 3 years while Sam is on his rookie deal. Hopefully our next GM will at least realize that spending some of it on a Center isn't the worst thing in the world.
  12. Lee was far from worth his pick, but he played very well before his suspension last season. I freely admit I thought he'd bring back at least a 4th if not a 3rd. Very surprised at the piss-poor compensation. Still...it is what it is.

    Mac fired!

    At least you can re-use the G and A from the 'Fire Maccagnan' banners. Oh wait, it's not a capital 'G'. That sucks.

    Dos Equis should have Emilia Clark do a commercial. "I don't always have bad PMS, but when I do..."
  15. Oh, I might have accidentally deleted that particular thread...on purpose. All these shiny buttons and knobs....accidents happen.
