shoot your What's going on, guys, I'm saying daring and with me is James Tree Fry we represent on Rap Sports Network were all these, you know, Milwaukee Natives.
00:00:17
So some breaking news? I don't matter.
00:00:20
I usually come on every week to break down Division.
00:00:24
Last week did the cobblers and the egos we did.
00:00:26
We fished off with the Bears Vikings in Lyon two weeks ago.
00:00:30
Um, but we're gonna go back to the Vikings today.
00:00:33
We all know that I am a Packer fan, but James raise a Vikings fan and big news out of Minnesota today.
00:00:41
The Vikings have signed Mike Simmer to a multi year extension and I said this before and you know this.
00:00:48
I'm not a huge fan of like summer.
00:00:52
I think he's one of the guys in the hot seat.
00:00:53
However, I think he could be a guy that has his job safe.
00:00:57
But, um, judging with other defense has been I mean, there's secondary is gonna be hurt a lot.
00:01:03
That's why they drafted Jeff Gladney early, um, and even James Lindsay judge dressing their interior D line along with signing Michael Pierce.
00:01:12
But their defense, their defense, a big concern.
00:01:15
And I mean, they kind of had to do this.
00:01:18
This was a good signing.
00:01:20
It was a smart move.
00:01:21
What do you think, James? Yeah, I believe that.
00:01:25
Especially like you said, with secondary Exhibitor Roads walking out Trailways walking out might use.
00:01:30
I'm gonna take a much bigger leap forward this year.
00:01:33
I do believe that they're gonna need Mike Zimmer around for the foreseeable future.
00:01:37
So extending him to that contract and you extended cousins as well.
00:01:41
I believe Dalvin cook is about to get paid as well.
00:01:44
So I believe that it was a good move trying to keep this window open instead of heading down the re bill area of the NFL.
00:01:52
So I think that bad is ultimately the goal here is to try to keep this team together as much as possible because of the recent success in the playoffs.
00:02:01
Yeah, and that this has been a rough off sitting for them.
00:02:04
And I said last few weeks ago, I would argue out of the 32 teams, they were in the top five for having one of the best drafts.
00:02:13
They It means Fieldman is ah, very interesting guy.
00:02:18
Gm.
00:02:19
That's for sure, But he came on strong in the draft and it started with Justin Jefferson replacing Stefon Diggs and addressing your now young cornerback position.
00:02:29
I know Xavier Rhodes hasn't really done anything for two years now, but she lost him to the Colts and you lost trade winds to the Bangles.
00:02:36
And I said this a few weeks ago on my or on our like predictions for guys to step up.
00:02:43
And I put my cues, Do you see my cues taking on? Ah, not necessarily bigger role.
00:02:49
But do you think he's going to be the guy to step up? Why did he ask me? I think that you you said it yourself.
00:02:56
He has to be the guy.
00:02:58
Exhibitor Rose is gone.
00:02:59
Trae Waynes is gone, and Mike Hughes is the next guy up.
00:03:03
We drafted him in the first round, and when you draft a guy in the first round, you don't draft him without the idea that he could be a potential number one corner.
00:03:12
So I've always liked my Hughes.
00:03:14
I thought that the time that he first a c l tear his rookie season, but I feel that what he has got the playing time.
00:03:22
He has stepped up and has played aggressive.
00:03:25
He has not been afraid to make plays, and I do believe he's ready going into your three to be that guy for us.
00:03:33
And unfortunately, like we mentioned before the secondary, that's the position that this the area of concern, especially on their defense for the Vikings, that's when it hurts the most.
00:03:43
And especially that starts with losing Jerry Gray and a guy that has developed guys into an elite secondary.
00:03:51
And now, unfortunately, you lost into the Packers.
00:03:54
You lost a lot under cornerback position like you.
00:03:56
Like we both mentioned, we have my Mike.
00:03:59
Use has to be the guy to step up.
00:04:01
They do still have Harris and Smith and, um, Anthony Harris.
00:04:05
But Mike use has to be that guy to step up, and I think they're I think they're going to expect a lot of the same of Jeff Glenn.
00:04:12
He's a little bit undersized, but I think they like him a lot for both his athleticism and his toughness.
00:04:21
Oh yeah, I 100% agree, and I'm a fan of the Gladney pick.
00:04:25
I like the fact that the Vikings are willing to go out on a limb.
00:04:28
Steelman often does, especially late in the first round.
00:04:31
He's definitely have some hits over the last couple years, so I like to pick a lot.
00:04:36
Mike Zimmer, as we've said, is a defensive minded coach, and he did start as a secondary coordinator.
00:04:42
That's what he was for the Cowboys in the early two thousands.
00:04:45
So when I'm looking at this, I'm thinking that this is a good fit moving forward with this young secondary with my Zimmer.
00:04:52
Yeah, I mean, my exam for 64 years old.
00:04:55
We talked about this.
00:04:56
We've talked about this before.
00:04:57
He's 64 years old, has a little bit of health concerns.
00:05:00
I mean, right now he started Teoh, and I mean, he's 59 41 1 I believe, for his overall career.
00:05:10
He's got 20 plus years of coaching experience.
00:05:14
They need a defensive minded coach, the direction their offense is moving, for the exception of the Delvin Cook, hold up, which we'll get to next.
00:05:22
They're often XYZ moving in a better direction right now than their defense.
00:05:27
Their defense needs help.
00:05:28
Everson Griffen is still out there, and I mean the Vikings have.
00:05:32
From what I've seen me coming from a Packer fan, I mean, the Vikings have always treated Everson Griffen with the most respect that he deserves.
00:05:41
I mean, look at Everson.
00:05:42
Griffen was a guy that's dealt with off field issues and, like Zimmer's a guy I mean to me, Mike Zimmer, like he's a like a book.
00:05:50
I mean, he allowed Everson Griffen to take us much time off as possible.
00:05:54
And I mean, Everson Griffen was a huge part of that defense, and, um, and now he's still out there. They let him walk.
00:06:03
I mean, now you bring in, if you if they bring him in along with the new hunter who I think other than Sedaris Smith is one of the most underrated edge rushers in the league, 14 2nd straight seasons, day in day two of the draft.
00:06:25
So their front D line, um, could look promising, I think.
00:06:29
Ever seen Griffin needs to be a key signing for them to bring him back.
00:06:34
What do you think I'm 100% agree? I've been saying from the very beginning that they need to bring him back.
00:06:39
He has been really in my opinion, the leader of this defense that has been one of our strong suits over the last couple of years.
00:06:46
A lot of people say, Heiress in Smith, a lot of people that save your roads, the heart of the defense.
00:06:51
But I honestly believe yeah, definitely.
00:06:54
I truthfully believe that for the last five years or so ever seen, Griffin has been the leader of the defense ever since Jared Allen left.
00:07:02
I believe it's been ever so.
00:07:03
Griffin is the heart and soul, that defense.
00:07:05
He's been a Pro Bowler.
00:07:06
He's not what he used to be.
00:07:08
He's a little bit past his prime.
00:07:10
But when you have to kneel, Hunter and you bring in Michael Pierce.
00:07:13
That defensive line is a strong suit of years already.
00:07:17
And if you can add, ever since Griffin, that will help alleviate the pressure from a young secondary that's looking to develop.
00:07:24
So having a strong defenses line going into the season is vital for the Vikings and Everson Griffin is a major piece of that, Yeah, and the secondary.
00:07:34
To me, that's gonna be a very interesting position to wash, and I mean, it started with the run defense if the run defense excels in this season, especially with within Everson Griffen signing of bringing him back that will take some of the pressure a little bit of the pressure off that secondary, But they need to step up.
00:07:53
And I'm really interested.
00:07:55
Well, new.
00:08:00
Did the i d. I adjusted.
00:08:05
I do. Just something.
00:08:07
All right.
00:08:09
Oh, I'm sorry.
00:08:10
I didn't OK, Yeah, yeah.
00:08:13
No, I heard.
00:08:14
Yeah, that was just me.
00:08:15
I do just Ok, OK.
00:08:18
All right.
00:08:19
Um, yeah.
00:08:20
So I mean, I think if the run defeat, if they can excel in the run defense especially, I mean, bringing back Everson Griffen would be huge.
00:08:27
There are few landing spots that I have him along.
00:08:30
Have him going.
00:08:31
I mean, I think the bills would be a great land expired.
00:08:33
No, they just traded first upon digs.
00:08:35
But the bills I mean, if you look at the roster, this is this might be surprising to you.
00:08:40
Stefon Diggs is not their high speed guy.
00:08:42
It's their center.
00:08:43
Mitch.
00:08:44
Force the findings of the second highest paid player.
00:08:46
So they're not paying a whole lot of guys.
00:08:48
Josh Allen is still he want to say he's just in the last a year or so of his deal of his rookie contract.
00:08:55
And I mean, the Bills have a lot of guys that there's not paying.
00:08:59
I think they don't.
00:09:01
They have a lot of guys that they're paying cheap.
00:09:03
And so Everson Griffen, to me, would be a great fit for the Bills.
00:09:07
But I think it would be huge if the Vikings brought him back, especially with a struggling secondary that we have yet This we have to see.
00:09:17
It will be very interesting come this season.
00:09:22
Yeah, most definitely.
00:09:23
That's I I definitely think that that's another good fit for him.
00:09:26
I also heard the Browns in the rumor mill it well, but ultimately, I don't think it's a must of the Vikings.
00:09:33
Get him back.
00:09:34
I think Steelman should be paying him as much money is he is, he wants, because he deserves it at that point.
00:09:39
You know you have toe spend money to, you know, make money in the sense that you're gonna win a Super Bowl, so right and that brings us to we're going to go to the offenses side of the ball.
00:09:53
Doubling Cook's been popping up a lot with the Vikings throughout this off season.
00:09:59
He wants to get Christian McCaffrey money, Which to me I think is just blasphemous.
00:10:04
Um, I think that's ridiculous.
00:10:07
He I mean, yeah, he's very talented.
00:10:09
He can't stay healthy.
00:10:10
This is his first year reason.
00:10:12
Fully healthy.
00:10:13
I don't understand how you could think that you you deserve Christian McCaffrey money.
00:10:17
Now, if he stays healthy for the next year or so, continues to get better.
00:10:25
Yeah, I think he deserved the counting out of Christian McCaffrey contract, but I think he deserves to get paid.
00:10:29
And if you look at the Vikings offense me.
00:10:32
Yeah, they had Adam feel and think it off.
00:10:36
And often common Smith don't cook was a big part.
00:10:40
Well, over the majority of that offense, I mean, like the Christian McCaffrey signing, in my opinion, the Vikings were gonna have no choice but to pay him.
00:10:49
And I'm interested to see what that contract comes out to be.
00:10:55
Yeah, I think that he definitely won't wants Christian McCaffrey money, and I actually am of the belief that Dalvin is much closer or if not possibly better than Chris McCaffrey.
00:11:07
And I also believe that the injury stigma that he has around him is a little bit overstated.
00:11:14
His rookie season, he told his a c l and weak for.
00:11:17
And really anybody can tear their A c l.
00:11:20
I don't think that somebody tearing their a c l should go immediately into people saying that he's injury prone.
00:11:27
Um, second year of you had a couple of bumps and bruises, which most running backs do.
00:11:30
But this season he was healthy for the majority of the year and the game against the Packers, where he missed due to injury.
00:11:36
You saw how the offense looked and it was not pretty.
00:11:40
Three offense did not, was not able to produce at behind level that they're used to with Dalvin cook into the lineup.
00:11:47
So I think when you take into account, when you see how this Vikings offense is constructed and the type of production that was given to them from Dalvin Cook and ultimately pushing them into the playoffs and you saw how heavy they are on the run, I believe you do pay him top three Ryan back money because I believe he definitely is that it has the chance to be that for the next coming years.
00:12:11
And they did draft Alexander Madison a few years ago.
00:12:15
The Boise State for a reason, Because he has.
00:12:17
I mean, they have even said it before that he has a someone of a similar skill set to Dalvin Cook.
00:12:24
But, I mean, outside of Dalvin Cook Day.
00:12:26
But there's a lot of unproven talent in that running back in that running back room for Minnesota.
00:12:32
So to me, I think there's one they're not gonna choice.
00:12:34
I think they're gonna have to sign him.
00:12:36
And to son, double Cook is a key part.
00:12:41
I mean, I'll ask you this.
00:12:43
I mean, e I would almost go down to cook.
00:12:46
I don't like the idea of paying running backs, but I think if you don't sign Delmon Cook, it's gonna hurt you much more than not signing Everson Griffen.
00:12:55
If you have a yeah, questions, I mean, the Vikings, their front de line has a lot.
00:13:04
I mean, not only unproven, but there's a lot of young guys.
00:13:07
I mean, look at look at the new 100.
00:13:09
The new 100 learned I never singer and now James Lynch to meet on the Interior D line he's walking into a nice situation.
00:13:16
He's walking in, learning behind an up and coming into your D line, and Michael Pierce that to me.
00:13:24
Out of all I mean your defense of something that was a defense of splash of the off season for you guys.
00:13:28
I mean, Michael Michael Pearce was that outstanding siding.
00:13:32
The Packers run defense was mean needed to the address outside of Kenny Clarke, there's not, Ah, whole lot of death, I think there, um, I think we're going to be seeing a lot of kings that geeky this year.
00:13:47
A second year veteran are a second duration, same better in a second year guy out of Texas Tech R, Texas A and M.
00:13:55
Um, But then you go to the Vikings, their front life, Michael Pierce.
00:14:00
And now you have James Lesh.
00:14:02
Um, Michael Pearce was a guy that I really, really wanted in Green Bay, but I think that's huge for the Vikings.
00:14:10
And, yeah, most definitely, uh, Michael Pearce was a key signing in the offseason, and he's gonna be a great fit here because we've always had a strong defensive line in the midst of this playoff success that we've seen as of late in the last couple seasons with Neil Hunter and Everson Griffen.
00:14:31
And now you add Michael Pierce of that, which I believe is going to be an upgrade from Linval Joseph.
00:14:35
So I look at this signing as she in having a dominant defense this year.
00:14:41
Yeah, I mean, especially after losing Everson Griffin.
00:14:45
I mean, we don't know if they're going to sign them at all yet, but as of right now, because you lost ever since you lost everything managed to bring in one of the top defense of tackles on the market that was available.
00:15:01
I mean, live.
00:15:02
You lost Lindvall Joseph to the Chargers, who? I think the charges defense looks even scarier than they do last year.
00:15:10
There there's there's so many teams.
00:15:12
I mean, the Bears and charters are great example, their quarterback away from making playoff runs, But so the Vikings.
00:15:23
The last thing I want to talk about is, um, how much of an impact to receive these rookies making? Not in the first year, but overall the career And I mean just in Jefferson obviously was a fan favorite.
00:15:38
I mean, you you probably I don't think either was I expected him.
00:15:44
Teoh fall to you.
00:15:48
I've known I was very. I was surprised.
00:15:51
And, to be honest, he was the third.
00:15:53
He was my that he was the fifth receiver taken, and I believe he was was the fifth receiver taken? Because it was what rugs Judy Lamb regular and then Jefferson.
00:16:05
Justin Jefferson was the third best receiver on that board.
00:16:08
I had CD lamb over him, and I had Judy over him.
00:16:10
But then I had Justin Jefferson, and when the Vikings lost a fund digs, I knew right away that the Vikings were going to probably make a move it one of these young receivers in the draft.
00:16:19
Because Dave is a huge loss.
00:16:21
The Vikings haven't really established 1/3 receiver, so the receiver depth is a little bit underwhelming.
00:16:27
So when you add a young talent like Justin Jefferson's that offense, they're gonna be looking for him to come in and produce right away and possibly take over the role.
00:16:35
That stuff on Big Head, which is a possible 1000 yard receiver, if we could get that out of him, and I believe he has the talent to do so, yeah, I 100% agree with you there? I mean, he was the fifth receiver up the board. He waas.
00:16:49
I think he was one of the best.
00:16:50
He was the top three receiver in my eyes coming into the draft, and I said this a while ago.
00:16:56
I mean, people will put the knock on Joe Burrows Well, because they're his staff's.
00:17:02
What did he have? He had over 800 yards and think around 15 16 touchdowns.
00:17:08
That's a view is still promising.
00:17:10
And then he obviously jumped up to over 1500 yards.
00:17:14
But, I mean, that's the one.
00:17:16
Not that people are going to give on Jefferson is because one he played on a Super team and to his stats just skyrocketed as soon as job.
00:17:24
Okay, I mean, Joe Burrows.
00:17:26
First year was also promising through just over 2000 year, 2000 yards.
00:17:31
I think it was like 10 to 15 touchdowns or something like, I don't know, called off the top of my head, but just in Jefferson, I mean, like you said, Stepan digs.
00:17:38
What I thought was I Rock on IQ is the beginning of the season.
00:17:41
He was complaining about his role in the offense, and then he finishes the season on a career year.
00:17:46
So I mean, ah, 1000 yards, seasoned like you're saying That's big shoes to fill and I think he 100% has the talent to do that.
00:17:54
I mean, you lost LaQuan Treadwell, hold falcons having it, Chad BB, you have.
00:18:02
I mean, there's a lot of guys.
00:18:04
There's a lot of unproven talent and there's not a whole lot of death and never seen a room, either.
00:18:10
So I think Justin Jefferson is definitely gonna be expected to contribute right away.
00:18:16
And I think he has the talent.
00:18:18
I think he will do just that.
00:18:22
Yeah, I 100% agree.
00:18:24
1000 yards isn't big shoes to fill, but you have Adam feeling they're still who's used to a having a second receiver.
00:18:30
So you're coming into a situation in a system that has been run for the last almost 4 to 5 seasons in Minnesota, having those two receivers out there that can both make place, So I also believe he's gonna be able to come in.
00:18:45
He's gonna have some pressure alleviate with Adam feeling in the line of hopefully he can keep his health and check this season.
00:18:51
And if you can do that, Justin Jefferson's gonna be walking right into a system that has been put in place and is ready for him to take over.
00:18:59
And he has the talent to do just that.
00:19:02
So you think I'm interested to see what this offense is? One.
00:19:05
You lost Kevin Stefanski.
00:19:07
Wish that's beyond me.
00:19:09
I don't really think he has the resume to have a head coaching job.
00:19:14
Um, so good luck in Cleveland.
00:19:16
But it will be interesting to see with the offense, especially if Dalvin Cook does decide to hold out.
00:19:23
And the Vikings don't pay em by week one.
00:19:25
He holds out you you end up with Alexander Madison with the new, also have a new offensive coordinator to me, Earth.
00:19:33
Smith has so much talent, too much talent, um, to not be used more than he is.
00:19:40
So I'm interested to see if I mean Kyle Rudolph is he's getting all their So I'm interested to see if they start utilizing the too tight end system.
00:19:49
I mean, especially since kind of redox getting older kind of kind of groom Earth Smith into that role once kind of word off decides to hang up the cleats.
00:20:00
Yes, I 100% agree.
00:20:02
Or Smith? Last year, when he got in the game, he made plays right away.
00:20:05
They want to include him early.
00:20:06
He's a very talented athlete.
00:20:08
He's a very He's a very dynamic tight end.
00:20:11
He could do multiple things.
00:20:13
And when you look at Kyle Rudolph, a guy that is aging and a person who has always been known for the catching area in the tight end game much more than the blocking, your ableto use him at his full strength while using Earth Smith in that too tight end system and with a lot of young and up and coming weapons, he's gonna be at the forefront of that search that's going to be coming in this season, and I'm I'm looking forward to it because you had a year under your belt and you're having a second season, which you fully expect to be have a big role in that offense.
00:20:44
So I'm excited to see what he does.
00:20:47
Yeah, and Kyle Rudolph spent a guy that's been pretty consistent throughout the majority of his career.
00:20:51
In to me, I think 500 Smith.
00:20:53
I mean, I think I think Kyra it off is a I think he's a very solid tightened to learn off.
00:21:01
So, yes.
00:21:04
So we talked about James Lynch a lot, um, kind of bringing it and going into a good situation, learning behind one of the top one of the top defensive tackles on the market in Michael Pierce.
00:21:17
But what I want to do more on is as we're Cleveland, I mean, this was one of that.
00:21:22
This was a deep offensive tackle draft.
00:21:24
Unlike the wide receiver draft, you could have waited and tell.
00:21:27
Maybe like you could have waited until Day three and you could still could have had I don't mean multiple tackles. One of the first.
00:21:41
I mean the offensive tackle position with deep.
00:21:43
It was talented, but all of that depth at that position, one away so early as we're Cleveland.
00:21:50
And we talked about this before, too.
00:21:53
The best quarterback of the Vikings have ever had was obviously friends, Tarkington.
00:21:57
But, I mean, Kirk Cousins is the best quarterback they've had since what Brett Farr Tenney bricks are, as it worked out.
00:22:05
I mean, case Keenum wasn't case kin to me is just kind of a system quarterback.
00:22:09
He only works.
00:22:10
I mean, he was good in Minnesota because he was under the right system that fit that fit for him.
00:22:15
So I would almost say he's the best quarterback that he has his breath farm and to me, I think you're gonna regret that sign in just because you're deep.
00:22:23
It's showing, especially because your defense lost a lot.
00:22:27
But at the same time, if you're keeping a guy for two more years, you're gonna have to protect him.
00:22:33
And the Vikings definitely addressed their offensive lineman early.
00:22:37
And as we're Cleveland's of Mass and I think that will help their run game immensely, yeah, and it was a great pick.
00:22:46
The Vikings have struggled a lot in the offensive line department over the last five years, and it's been an issue that a lot of Viking fans are becoming frustrated with because it's an issue that has been consistent.
00:22:58
And when you have a quarterback like her cousins who is not necessarily mobile and he needs a lot of protection in the passing game and you know you have a running back like Dalvin cook assuming he gets paid that is going to need to stay healthy and is going to need those also fill the holes to run, to be able to make those big place and every and every Cleveland he is going to be.
00:23:22
The guy that's gonna come in right away and start having an impact because one guy in an offensive line making an impact can really rain true for the rest of the office fund.
00:23:32
So you just need one guy to come in there and start making plays for things to start coming together for an offensive line.
00:23:37
And he could be that guy, right? And I mean, the last guy that they drafted early a few years ago was Spirit Bradbury.
00:23:45
He's 25 years old, already already started to make a name for himself and that young offensive line, and we've talked about the secondary.
00:23:56
The Vikings drafted three corners in this draft.
00:23:58
They drafted camera dancer hairs on hand, and Jeff Glady, I really like camera dance lor.
00:24:03
I mean, I like versatility in a lot of draft.
00:24:06
I mean, it depends on the position.
00:24:08
Offensive line to me is huge.
00:24:11
Cameron dancers an interesting pick because he's a multi sport guy.
00:24:16
I mean, he's a guy that are not multi sport, multi position.
00:24:19
He's vote.
00:24:21
He's versatile, He's versatile. He played.
00:24:23
I think you played quarterback in high school, actually mean that to me.
00:24:28
I think I think it's pretty cool.
00:24:30
I mean, it's always nice to have guys that have played both sides of the ball to route their football career because, I mean, that's a plus.
00:24:38
Rated my for those specific players and it'll be interesting to see not only I mean, did he play quarterback in high school, But I love his versatility because I think he could almost have the talent.
00:24:49
I think he has the talent to be put in that cornerback slash safety role.
00:24:58
Yeah, I agree with that as well.
00:25:00
And like we stated before, the secondary took a major hit this off season with the Xavier Rhodes and freeways walking out the door.
00:25:06
Mike use is going to be expected to step up in a much bigger role of Jeff.
00:25:10
Gladney is going to be expected to step into a much bigger role, but after that the rest of the cornerbacks and those safety positions they are why Open and Mike Zimmer being the coast that he is? You know that everybody is going to have a fair competition at those roster spots in starting positions.
00:25:25
And if you have a lot of town that you picked up in this draft class and dancer, he is the guy.
00:25:30
I would say it is the front runner for one of those two spots with all of the things that he could bring to the table.
00:25:36
And I'm looking forward to seeing what he could do.
00:25:38
Oh, yeah.
00:25:40
And I think you mentioned this earlier in our stream is the Vikings are most stuff like they still have the talent to there.
00:25:48
They're not bad enough to be going into a rebuild.
00:25:51
I mean, quarterbacks are hard to come by.
00:25:53
I mean, we can we can talk about this deck Prescott with situation for hours.
00:25:58
Um, because quarterbacks are hard to come by to me.
00:26:00
I don't I don't understand how the cowboys have taken this long to.
00:26:04
I think the colors look worse in this situation.
00:26:06
That Dak Prescott? Yeah, Dak Prescott asked too much money.
00:26:10
But like quarterbacks are hard to come by.
00:26:12
We have.
00:26:13
We've already talked that we've already said before that Kirk Cousins, the best quarterback they've had since pro farmer.
00:26:19
I mean, the Packers have been very fortunate toe have guys like Bart Starr, um, art star Bret Farve, Aaron Rodgers and not hopefully joined in love.
00:26:29
I mean, yeah, I mean, quarterbacks are hard to come by, but like they're fortunate enough toe have guys last as long as you, um but yeah.
00:26:42
I mean, the Vikings, I don't think they're necessarily their most definitely not in the position to rebuild.
00:26:48
I think there. And I think they're in a position.
00:26:50
Teoh build back into playoff contention.
00:26:53
I predicted them to go nine and seven and not make the playoffs.
00:26:58
Matt two weeks ago predicted them to go nine and seven and make the playoffs.
00:27:02
So if you had to make a prediction for their record, um, what would you I would say that they're gonna finish about 97 or 10.
00:27:12
60 and I said, Be good enough to win this division.
00:27:17
I don't look at the NFC North as a division.
00:27:20
I look at the teams that have a lot of potential, but I also see a lot of teams that could disappoint in the multitude of ways.
00:27:27
And with a season that's a little bit in question, a little bit off to a slow start, I believe that we're gonna be seeing a lot of to get off to, You know, you talk a little bit of a sluggish start, really, That can have anybody so sluggish.
00:27:39
Start could be a downfall for a team like the Vikings.
00:27:42
But I could see the Vikings being a team that goes about 11 and five from the NFC North.
00:27:46
I do believe that it's gonna come down to the Vikings and the Packers.
00:27:50
If I had toe make my choice today, and that really could go either way if everybody is healthy and I didn't Both teams are fully loaded and fully ready to make a run at the post seasons this season.
00:28:02
Yeah, I've mentioned this before.
00:28:04
Um, the Bears to me, are a quarterback away from making a playoff run, but I mean, as a Packer fan, the Vikings were really the only team I'm worried about.
00:28:14
Um but I mean defense.
00:28:16
I am by far more afraid of the Bears than I am of the Vikings, but I don't really see it as long as the Bears have Mitchell, Travis Key or even Nick full, because I also think Nick Foles is a system quarterback that only works in Philadelphia as long as they still have now, probably Nick Foles as their quarterback.
00:28:34
I don't think he's gonna be there.
00:28:35
Answer.
00:28:36
But as long as they still have that very questionable quarterbacking situation, the Vikings are more of a concern from the when the Bears.
00:28:45
But so I asked Matt this question or Matt and I kind of went through this to end each team.
00:28:50
So we started with record.
00:28:53
So now we're going to go M v p.
00:28:56
So who do you think will be offensive NDP for the Vikings offensive P.
00:29:03
I definitely would say Dalvin Cook, but that's in question right now, so I do think well, this season to start, I'm gonna have to go with Adam feeling.
00:29:11
I believe Adam feeling is going to have a resurgence season.
00:29:14
Some people think that he might be over the hill, he's getting old.
00:29:17
I've even heard a lot of people call him overrated, which I think is incorrect.
00:29:22
I believe Adam feeling has been a major weapon in this offense.
00:29:26
Over the last three years, he has made catches that have bailed a lot of quarterbacks out.
00:29:30
He has the production to prove it.
00:29:31
He has the talent to prove it, and I believe this season he's got a little bit of chip on his shoulders to fund eggs is not here anymore.
00:29:37
So I'm gonna have to step up majorly.
00:29:40
And I think he's definitely got the mental toughness and the talent to do so.
00:29:43
So I'm gonna go the EM field.
00:29:46
Yeah, I mean, I said Dalvin, cook weren't toe hold out.
00:29:49
I would go Dalvin cook.
00:29:50
But I also said the same thing.
00:29:52
Um, without a viewing.
00:29:55
Eso Matt and I had the same thing.
00:29:57
I was your first.
00:29:59
Who's, er, defence of NPP defensive EVP.
00:30:02
I definitely I'm gonna go with the Neil Hunter Daniel Hunter is from.
00:30:06
I think he's going to have a season of about 17 plus sacks.
00:30:10
He's set for a dominant season with Michael Pierce coming in and if ever seen, Griffin doesn't get signed anytime soon.
00:30:17
I believe that he will find a way to come back to Minnesota because he's such a great fit there.
00:30:20
And if that happens, I believe the new hunters set up to have a very great all pro caliber season.
00:30:27
So I'm gonna go to hell hunter with a guy that's coming off two straight 14.
00:30:30
5 seasons.
00:30:32
I see no issues.
00:30:33
Why he's not capable of having 17 plus sacks.
00:30:36
So I 100% agree.
00:30:38
That's exactly who I had.
00:30:40
Eso most improved player.
00:30:42
I think I told you this earlier, but I'm gonna let you pick First North.
00:30:48
Improved player.
00:30:49
Um, more comeback player.
00:30:53
So it could be both you could think to.
00:30:55
You could pick one of the other.
00:30:58
Um, man.
00:30:59
See, I'm gonna The two guys that come to mind are urged Smith and Mike Hughes because I think their roles are going to step up.
00:31:06
But I'm going, I'm gonna I'm gonna go with my Hughes because I believe that that number one corner is huge in today's NFL.
00:31:13
You seen what an impact of dialects to find Gilmore can make.
00:31:17
And while worth Smith is talented and he's gonna be a major part of the offense, I believe the Vikings they're gonna turn to Justin Jefferson and Adams stealing a lot more for the production offensively, my fuses stepping into a role that he's gonna have to be solid right away and all the way through.
00:31:33
So I believe most improved player is definitely going to be my Hughes because I believe he's ready to step into that role.
00:31:40
Yeah, that's that's exactly who I had.
00:31:42
I had my cues.
00:31:43
I mean, we've talked.
00:31:44
We've already said this before the cornerback position.
00:31:48
The corners have been hurt immensely and is losing Jerry Gray to me is huge.
00:31:53
That's one of to me.
00:31:54
That's a bigger loss than losing your corn.
00:31:58
I mean, losing Xavier Rosen, Trae Waynes.
00:32:01
To me, that was more of a depth concern.
00:32:04
And now you be drafted Three corners and more personality on camera dance lor.
00:32:10
But I like like you said, I think Mike Hughes is definitely gonna be the guy, um, to step up.
00:32:16
And I think he's more than capable of doing so, Um, now he's got a year or two under his belt.
00:32:23
Yeah, no question Mike used would definitely be my pick.
00:32:26
Earth.
00:32:27
It was between him and Herb Smith for me.
00:32:28
And I'm gonna go with my Hughes because I think he's ready to step up from what I've seen thus far when he's got a chance to play.
00:32:35
Yeah.
00:32:36
So that is all we have.
00:32:38
James.
00:32:39

00:00:04
shoot your What's going on, guys, I'm saying daring and with me is James Tree Fry we represent on Rap Sports Network were all these, you know, Milwaukee Natives.
00:00:17
So some breaking news? I don't matter.
00:00:20
I usually come on every week to break down Division.
00:00:24
Last week did the cobblers and the egos we did.
00:00:26
We fished off with the Bears Vikings in Lyon two weeks ago.
00:00:30
Um, but we're gonna go back to the Vikings today.
00:00:33
We all know that I am a Packer fan, but James raise a Vikings fan and big news out of Minnesota today.
00:00:41
The Vikings have signed Mike Simmer to a multi year extension and I said this before and you know this.
00:00:48
I'm not a huge fan of like summer.
00:00:52
I think he's one of the guys in the hot seat.
00:00:53
However, I think he could be a guy that has his job safe.
00:00:57
But, um, judging with other defense has been I mean, there's secondary is gonna be hurt a lot.
00:01:03
That's why they drafted Jeff Gladney early, um, and even James Lindsay judge dressing their interior D line along with signing Michael Pierce.
00:01:12
But their defense, their defense, a big concern.
00:01:15
And I mean, they kind of had to do this.
00:01:18
This was a good signing.
00:01:20
It was a smart move.
00:01:21
What do you think, James? Yeah, I believe that.
00:01:25
Especially like you said, with secondary Exhibitor Roads walking out Trailways walking out might use.
00:01:30
I'm gonna take a much bigger leap forward this year.
00:01:33
I do believe that they're gonna need Mike Zimmer around for the foreseeable future.
00:01:37
So extending him to that contract and you extended cousins as well.
00:01:41
I believe Dalvin cook is about to get paid as well.
00:01:44
So I believe that it was a good move trying to keep this window open instead of heading down the re bill area of the NFL.
00:01:52
So I think that bad is ultimately the goal here is to try to keep this team together as much as possible because of the recent success in the playoffs.
00:02:01
Yeah, and that this has been a rough off sitting for them.
00:02:04
And I said last few weeks ago, I would argue out of the 32 teams, they were in the top five for having one of the best drafts.
00:02:13
They It means Fieldman is ah, very interesting guy.
00:02:18
Gm.
00:02:19
That's for sure, But he came on strong in the draft and it started with Justin Jefferson replacing Stefon Diggs and addressing your now young cornerback position.
00:02:29
I know Xavier Rhodes hasn't really done anything for two years now, but she lost him to the Colts and you lost trade winds to the Bangles.
00:02:36
And I said this a few weeks ago on my or on our like predictions for guys to step up.
00:02:43
And I put my cues, Do you see my cues taking on? Ah, not necessarily bigger role.
00:02:49
But do you think he's going to be the guy to step up? Why did he ask me? I think that you you said it yourself.
00:02:56
He has to be the guy.
00:02:58
Exhibitor Rose is gone.
00:02:59
Trae Waynes is gone, and Mike Hughes is the next guy up.
00:03:03
We drafted him in the first round, and when you draft a guy in the first round, you don't draft him without the idea that he could be a potential number one corner.
00:03:12
So I've always liked my Hughes.
00:03:14
I thought that the time that he first a c l tear his rookie season, but I feel that what he has got the playing time.
00:03:22
He has stepped up and has played aggressive.
00:03:25
He has not been afraid to make plays, and I do believe he's ready going into your three to be that guy for us.
00:03:33
And unfortunately, like we mentioned before the secondary, that's the position that this the area of concern, especially on their defense for the Vikings, that's when it hurts the most.
00:03:43
And especially that starts with losing Jerry Gray and a guy that has developed guys into an elite secondary.
00:03:51
And now, unfortunately, you lost into the Packers.
00:03:54
You lost a lot under cornerback position like you.
00:03:56
Like we both mentioned, we have my Mike.
00:03:59
Use has to be the guy to step up.
00:04:01
They do still have Harris and Smith and, um, Anthony Harris.
00:04:05
But Mike use has to be that guy to step up, and I think they're I think they're going to expect a lot of the same of Jeff Glenn.
00:04:12
He's a little bit undersized, but I think they like him a lot for both his athleticism and his toughness.
00:04:21
Oh yeah, I 100% agree, and I'm a fan of the Gladney pick.
00:04:25
I like the fact that the Vikings are willing to go out on a limb.
00:04:28
Steelman often does, especially late in the first round.
00:04:31
He's definitely have some hits over the last couple years, so I like to pick a lot.
00:04:36
Mike Zimmer, as we've said, is a defensive minded coach, and he did start as a secondary coordinator.
00:04:42
That's what he was for the Cowboys in the early two thousands.
00:04:45
So when I'm looking at this, I'm thinking that this is a good fit moving forward with this young secondary with my Zimmer.
00:04:52
Yeah, I mean, my exam for 64 years old.
00:04:55
We talked about this.
00:04:56
We've talked about this before.
00:04:57
He's 64 years old, has a little bit of health concerns.
00:05:00
I mean, right now he started Teoh, and I mean, he's 59 41 1 I believe, for his overall career.
00:05:10
He's got 20 plus years of coaching experience.
00:05:14
They need a defensive minded coach, the direction their offense is moving, for the exception of the Delvin Cook, hold up, which we'll get to next.
00:05:22
They're often XYZ moving in a better direction right now than their defense.
00:05:27
Their defense needs help.
00:05:28
Everson Griffen is still out there, and I mean the Vikings have.
00:05:32
From what I've seen me coming from a Packer fan, I mean, the Vikings have always treated Everson Griffen with the most respect that he deserves.
00:05:41
I mean, look at Everson.
00:05:42
Griffen was a guy that's dealt with off field issues and, like Zimmer's a guy I mean to me, Mike Zimmer, like he's a like a book.
00:05:50
I mean, he allowed Everson Griffen to take us much time off as possible.
00:05:54
And I mean, Everson Griffen was a huge part of that defense, and, um, and now he's still out there. They let him walk.
00:06:03
I mean, now you bring in, if you if they bring him in along with the new hunter who I think other than Sedaris Smith is one of the most underrated edge rushers in the league, 14 2nd straight seasons, day in day two of the draft.
00:06:25
So their front D line, um, could look promising, I think.
00:06:29
Ever seen Griffin needs to be a key signing for them to bring him back.
00:06:34
What do you think I'm 100% agree? I've been saying from the very beginning that they need to bring him back.
00:06:39
He has been really in my opinion, the leader of this defense that has been one of our strong suits over the last couple of years.
00:06:46
A lot of people say, Heiress in Smith, a lot of people that save your roads, the heart of the defense.
00:06:51
But I honestly believe yeah, definitely.
00:06:54
I truthfully believe that for the last five years or so ever seen, Griffin has been the leader of the defense ever since Jared Allen left.
00:07:02
I believe it's been ever so.
00:07:03
Griffin is the heart and soul, that defense.
00:07:05
He's been a Pro Bowler.
00:07:06
He's not what he used to be.
00:07:08
He's a little bit past his prime.
00:07:10
But when you have to kneel, Hunter and you bring in Michael Pierce.
00:07:13
That defensive line is a strong suit of years already.
00:07:17
And if you can add, ever since Griffin, that will help alleviate the pressure from a young secondary that's looking to develop.
00:07:24
So having a strong defenses line going into the season is vital for the Vikings and Everson Griffin is a major piece of that, Yeah, and the secondary.
00:07:34
To me, that's gonna be a very interesting position to wash, and I mean, it started with the run defense if the run defense excels in this season, especially with within Everson Griffen signing of bringing him back that will take some of the pressure a little bit of the pressure off that secondary, But they need to step up.
00:07:53
And I'm really interested.
00:07:55
Well, new.
00:08:00
Did the i d. I adjusted.
00:08:05
I do. Just something.
00:08:07
All right.
00:08:09
Oh, I'm sorry.
00:08:10
I didn't OK, Yeah, yeah.
00:08:13
No, I heard.
00:08:14
Yeah, that was just me.
00:08:15
I do just Ok, OK.
00:08:18
All right.
00:08:19
Um, yeah.
00:08:20
So I mean, I think if the run defeat, if they can excel in the run defense especially, I mean, bringing back Everson Griffen would be huge.
00:08:27
There are few landing spots that I have him along.
00:08:30
Have him going.
00:08:31
I mean, I think the bills would be a great land expired.
00:08:33
No, they just traded first upon digs.
00:08:35
But the bills I mean, if you look at the roster, this is this might be surprising to you.
00:08:40
Stefon Diggs is not their high speed guy.
00:08:42
It's their center.
00:08:43
Mitch.
00:08:44
Force the findings of the second highest paid player.
00:08:46
So they're not paying a whole lot of guys.
00:08:48
Josh Allen is still he want to say he's just in the last a year or so of his deal of his rookie contract.
00:08:55
And I mean, the Bills have a lot of guys that there's not paying.
00:08:59
I think they don't.
00:09:01
They have a lot of guys that they're paying cheap.
00:09:03
And so Everson Griffen, to me, would be a great fit for the Bills.
00:09:07
But I think it would be huge if the Vikings brought him back, especially with a struggling secondary that we have yet This we have to see.
00:09:17
It will be very interesting come this season.
00:09:22
Yeah, most definitely.
00:09:23
That's I I definitely think that that's another good fit for him.
00:09:26
I also heard the Browns in the rumor mill it well, but ultimately, I don't think it's a must of the Vikings.
00:09:33
Get him back.
00:09:34
I think Steelman should be paying him as much money is he is, he wants, because he deserves it at that point.
00:09:39
You know you have toe spend money to, you know, make money in the sense that you're gonna win a Super Bowl, so right and that brings us to we're going to go to the offenses side of the ball.
00:09:53
Doubling Cook's been popping up a lot with the Vikings throughout this off season.
00:09:59
He wants to get Christian McCaffrey money, Which to me I think is just blasphemous.
00:10:04
Um, I think that's ridiculous.
00:10:07
He I mean, yeah, he's very talented.
00:10:09
He can't stay healthy.
00:10:10
This is his first year reason.
00:10:12
Fully healthy.
00:10:13
I don't understand how you could think that you you deserve Christian McCaffrey money.
00:10:17
Now, if he stays healthy for the next year or so, continues to get better.
00:10:25
Yeah, I think he deserved the counting out of Christian McCaffrey contract, but I think he deserves to get paid.
00:10:29
And if you look at the Vikings offense me.
00:10:32
Yeah, they had Adam feel and think it off.
00:10:36
And often common Smith don't cook was a big part.
00:10:40
Well, over the majority of that offense, I mean, like the Christian McCaffrey signing, in my opinion, the Vikings were gonna have no choice but to pay him.
00:10:49
And I'm interested to see what that contract comes out to be.
00:10:55
Yeah, I think that he definitely won't wants Christian McCaffrey money, and I actually am of the belief that Dalvin is much closer or if not possibly better than Chris McCaffrey.
00:11:07
And I also believe that the injury stigma that he has around him is a little bit overstated.
00:11:14
His rookie season, he told his a c l and weak for.
00:11:17
And really anybody can tear their A c l.
00:11:20
I don't think that somebody tearing their a c l should go immediately into people saying that he's injury prone.
00:11:27
Um, second year of you had a couple of bumps and bruises, which most running backs do.
00:11:30
But this season he was healthy for the majority of the year and the game against the Packers, where he missed due to injury.
00:11:36
You saw how the offense looked and it was not pretty.
00:11:40
Three offense did not, was not able to produce at behind level that they're used to with Dalvin cook into the lineup.
00:11:47
So I think when you take into account, when you see how this Vikings offense is constructed and the type of production that was given to them from Dalvin Cook and ultimately pushing them into the playoffs and you saw how heavy they are on the run, I believe you do pay him top three Ryan back money because I believe he definitely is that it has the chance to be that for the next coming years.
00:12:11
And they did draft Alexander Madison a few years ago.
00:12:15
The Boise State for a reason, Because he has.
00:12:17
I mean, they have even said it before that he has a someone of a similar skill set to Dalvin Cook.
00:12:24
But, I mean, outside of Dalvin Cook Day.
00:12:26
But there's a lot of unproven talent in that running back in that running back room for Minnesota.
00:12:32
So to me, I think there's one they're not gonna choice.
00:12:34
I think they're gonna have to sign him.
00:12:36
And to son, double Cook is a key part.
00:12:41
I mean, I'll ask you this.
00:12:43
I mean, e I would almost go down to cook.
00:12:46
I don't like the idea of paying running backs, but I think if you don't sign Delmon Cook, it's gonna hurt you much more than not signing Everson Griffen.
00:12:55
If you have a yeah, questions, I mean, the Vikings, their front de line has a lot.
00:13:04
I mean, not only unproven, but there's a lot of young guys.
00:13:07
I mean, look at look at the new 100.
00:13:09
The new 100 learned I never singer and now James Lynch to meet on the Interior D line he's walking into a nice situation.
00:13:16
He's walking in, learning behind an up and coming into your D line, and Michael Pierce that to me.
00:13:24
Out of all I mean your defense of something that was a defense of splash of the off season for you guys.
00:13:28
I mean, Michael Michael Pearce was that outstanding siding.
00:13:32
The Packers run defense was mean needed to the address outside of Kenny Clarke, there's not, Ah, whole lot of death, I think there, um, I think we're going to be seeing a lot of kings that geeky this year.
00:13:47
A second year veteran are a second duration, same better in a second year guy out of Texas Tech R, Texas A and M.
00:13:55
Um, But then you go to the Vikings, their front life, Michael Pierce.
00:14:00
And now you have James Lesh.
00:14:02
Um, Michael Pearce was a guy that I really, really wanted in Green Bay, but I think that's huge for the Vikings.
00:14:10
And, yeah, most definitely, uh, Michael Pearce was a key signing in the offseason, and he's gonna be a great fit here because we've always had a strong defensive line in the midst of this playoff success that we've seen as of late in the last couple seasons with Neil Hunter and Everson Griffen.
00:14:31
And now you add Michael Pierce of that, which I believe is going to be an upgrade from Linval Joseph.
00:14:35
So I look at this signing as she in having a dominant defense this year.
00:14:41
Yeah, I mean, especially after losing Everson Griffin.
00:14:45
I mean, we don't know if they're going to sign them at all yet, but as of right now, because you lost ever since you lost everything managed to bring in one of the top defense of tackles on the market that was available.
00:15:01
I mean, live.
00:15:02
You lost Lindvall Joseph to the Chargers, who? I think the charges defense looks even scarier than they do last year.
00:15:10
There there's there's so many teams.
00:15:12
I mean, the Bears and charters are great example, their quarterback away from making playoff runs, But so the Vikings.
00:15:23
The last thing I want to talk about is, um, how much of an impact to receive these rookies making? Not in the first year, but overall the career And I mean just in Jefferson obviously was a fan favorite.
00:15:38
I mean, you you probably I don't think either was I expected him.
00:15:44
Teoh fall to you.
00:15:48
I've known I was very. I was surprised.
00:15:51
And, to be honest, he was the third.
00:15:53
He was my that he was the fifth receiver taken, and I believe he was was the fifth receiver taken? Because it was what rugs Judy Lamb regular and then Jefferson.
00:16:05
Justin Jefferson was the third best receiver on that board.
00:16:08
I had CD lamb over him, and I had Judy over him.
00:16:10
But then I had Justin Jefferson, and when the Vikings lost a fund digs, I knew right away that the Vikings were going to probably make a move it one of these young receivers in the draft.
00:16:19
Because Dave is a huge loss.
00:16:21
The Vikings haven't really established 1/3 receiver, so the receiver depth is a little bit underwhelming.
00:16:27
So when you add a young talent like Justin Jefferson's that offense, they're gonna be looking for him to come in and produce right away and possibly take over the role.
00:16:35
That stuff on Big Head, which is a possible 1000 yard receiver, if we could get that out of him, and I believe he has the talent to do so, yeah, I 100% agree with you there? I mean, he was the fifth receiver up the board. He waas.
00:16:49
I think he was one of the best.
00:16:50
He was the top three receiver in my eyes coming into the draft, and I said this a while ago.
00:16:56
I mean, people will put the knock on Joe Burrows Well, because they're his staff's.
00:17:02
What did he have? He had over 800 yards and think around 15 16 touchdowns.
00:17:08
That's a view is still promising.
00:17:10
And then he obviously jumped up to over 1500 yards.
00:17:14
But, I mean, that's the one.
00:17:16
Not that people are going to give on Jefferson is because one he played on a Super team and to his stats just skyrocketed as soon as job.
00:17:24
Okay, I mean, Joe Burrows.
00:17:26
First year was also promising through just over 2000 year, 2000 yards.
00:17:31
I think it was like 10 to 15 touchdowns or something like, I don't know, called off the top of my head, but just in Jefferson, I mean, like you said, Stepan digs.
00:17:38
What I thought was I Rock on IQ is the beginning of the season.
00:17:41
He was complaining about his role in the offense, and then he finishes the season on a career year.
00:17:46
So I mean, ah, 1000 yards, seasoned like you're saying That's big shoes to fill and I think he 100% has the talent to do that.
00:17:54
I mean, you lost LaQuan Treadwell, hold falcons having it, Chad BB, you have.
00:18:02
I mean, there's a lot of guys.
00:18:04
There's a lot of unproven talent and there's not a whole lot of death and never seen a room, either.
00:18:10
So I think Justin Jefferson is definitely gonna be expected to contribute right away.
00:18:16
And I think he has the talent.
00:18:18
I think he will do just that.
00:18:22
Yeah, I 100% agree.
00:18:24
1000 yards isn't big shoes to fill, but you have Adam feeling they're still who's used to a having a second receiver.
00:18:30
So you're coming into a situation in a system that has been run for the last almost 4 to 5 seasons in Minnesota, having those two receivers out there that can both make place, So I also believe he's gonna be able to come in.
00:18:45
He's gonna have some pressure alleviate with Adam feeling in the line of hopefully he can keep his health and check this season.
00:18:51
And if you can do that, Justin Jefferson's gonna be walking right into a system that has been put in place and is ready for him to take over.
00:18:59
And he has the talent to do just that.
00:19:02
So you think I'm interested to see what this offense is? One.
00:19:05
You lost Kevin Stefanski.
00:19:07
Wish that's beyond me.
00:19:09
I don't really think he has the resume to have a head coaching job.
00:19:14
Um, so good luck in Cleveland.
00:19:16
But it will be interesting to see with the offense, especially if Dalvin Cook does decide to hold out.
00:19:23
And the Vikings don't pay em by week one.
00:19:25
He holds out you you end up with Alexander Madison with the new, also have a new offensive coordinator to me, Earth.
00:19:33
Smith has so much talent, too much talent, um, to not be used more than he is.
00:19:40
So I'm interested to see if I mean Kyle Rudolph is he's getting all their So I'm interested to see if they start utilizing the too tight end system.
00:19:49
I mean, especially since kind of redox getting older kind of kind of groom Earth Smith into that role once kind of word off decides to hang up the cleats.
00:20:00
Yes, I 100% agree.
00:20:02
Or Smith? Last year, when he got in the game, he made plays right away.
00:20:05
They want to include him early.
00:20:06
He's a very talented athlete.
00:20:08
He's a very He's a very dynamic tight end.
00:20:11
He could do multiple things.
00:20:13
And when you look at Kyle Rudolph, a guy that is aging and a person who has always been known for the catching area in the tight end game much more than the blocking, your ableto use him at his full strength while using Earth Smith in that too tight end system and with a lot of young and up and coming weapons, he's gonna be at the forefront of that search that's going to be coming in this season, and I'm I'm looking forward to it because you had a year under your belt and you're having a second season, which you fully expect to be have a big role in that offense.
00:20:44
So I'm excited to see what he does.
00:20:47
Yeah, and Kyle Rudolph spent a guy that's been pretty consistent throughout the majority of his career.
00:20:51
In to me, I think 500 Smith.
00:20:53
I mean, I think I think Kyra it off is a I think he's a very solid tightened to learn off.
00:21:01
So, yes.
00:21:04
So we talked about James Lynch a lot, um, kind of bringing it and going into a good situation, learning behind one of the top one of the top defensive tackles on the market in Michael Pierce.
00:21:17
But what I want to do more on is as we're Cleveland, I mean, this was one of that.
00:21:22
This was a deep offensive tackle draft.
00:21:24
Unlike the wide receiver draft, you could have waited and tell.
00:21:27
Maybe like you could have waited until Day three and you could still could have had I don't mean multiple tackles. One of the first.
00:21:41
I mean the offensive tackle position with deep.
00:21:43
It was talented, but all of that depth at that position, one away so early as we're Cleveland.
00:21:50
And we talked about this before, too.
00:21:53
The best quarterback of the Vikings have ever had was obviously friends, Tarkington.
00:21:57
But, I mean, Kirk Cousins is the best quarterback they've had since what Brett Farr Tenney bricks are, as it worked out.
00:22:05
I mean, case Keenum wasn't case kin to me is just kind of a system quarterback.
00:22:09
He only works.
00:22:10
I mean, he was good in Minnesota because he was under the right system that fit that fit for him.
00:22:15
So I would almost say he's the best quarterback that he has his breath farm and to me, I think you're gonna regret that sign in just because you're deep.
00:22:23
It's showing, especially because your defense lost a lot.
00:22:27
But at the same time, if you're keeping a guy for two more years, you're gonna have to protect him.
00:22:33
And the Vikings definitely addressed their offensive lineman early.
00:22:37
And as we're Cleveland's of Mass and I think that will help their run game immensely, yeah, and it was a great pick.
00:22:46
The Vikings have struggled a lot in the offensive line department over the last five years, and it's been an issue that a lot of Viking fans are becoming frustrated with because it's an issue that has been consistent.
00:22:58
And when you have a quarterback like her cousins who is not necessarily mobile and he needs a lot of protection in the passing game and you know you have a running back like Dalvin cook assuming he gets paid that is going to need to stay healthy and is going to need those also fill the holes to run, to be able to make those big place and every and every Cleveland he is going to be.
00:23:22
The guy that's gonna come in right away and start having an impact because one guy in an offensive line making an impact can really rain true for the rest of the office fund.
00:23:32
So you just need one guy to come in there and start making plays for things to start coming together for an offensive line.
00:23:37
And he could be that guy, right? And I mean, the last guy that they drafted early a few years ago was Spirit Bradbury.
00:23:45
He's 25 years old, already already started to make a name for himself and that young offensive line, and we've talked about the secondary.
00:23:56
The Vikings drafted three corners in this draft.
00:23:58
They drafted camera dancer hairs on hand, and Jeff Glady, I really like camera dance lor.
00:24:03
I mean, I like versatility in a lot of draft.
00:24:06
I mean, it depends on the position.
00:24:08
Offensive line to me is huge.
00:24:11
Cameron dancers an interesting pick because he's a multi sport guy.
00:24:16
I mean, he's a guy that are not multi sport, multi position.
00:24:19
He's vote.
00:24:21
He's versatile, He's versatile. He played.
00:24:23
I think you played quarterback in high school, actually mean that to me.
00:24:28
I think I think it's pretty cool.
00:24:30
I mean, it's always nice to have guys that have played both sides of the ball to route their football career because, I mean, that's a plus.
00:24:38
Rated my for those specific players and it'll be interesting to see not only I mean, did he play quarterback in high school, But I love his versatility because I think he could almost have the talent.
00:24:49
I think he has the talent to be put in that cornerback slash safety role.
00:24:58
Yeah, I agree with that as well.
00:25:00
And like we stated before, the secondary took a major hit this off season with the Xavier Rhodes and freeways walking out the door.
00:25:06
Mike use is going to be expected to step up in a much bigger role of Jeff.
00:25:10
Gladney is going to be expected to step into a much bigger role, but after that the rest of the cornerbacks and those safety positions they are why Open and Mike Zimmer being the coast that he is? You know that everybody is going to have a fair competition at those roster spots in starting positions.
00:25:25
And if you have a lot of town that you picked up in this draft class and dancer, he is the guy.
00:25:30
I would say it is the front runner for one of those two spots with all of the things that he could bring to the table.
00:25:36
And I'm looking forward to seeing what he could do.
00:25:38
Oh, yeah.
00:25:40
And I think you mentioned this earlier in our stream is the Vikings are most stuff like they still have the talent to there.
00:25:48
They're not bad enough to be going into a rebuild.
00:25:51
I mean, quarterbacks are hard to come by.
00:25:53
I mean, we can we can talk about this deck Prescott with situation for hours.
00:25:58
Um, because quarterbacks are hard to come by to me.
00:26:00
I don't I don't understand how the cowboys have taken this long to.
00:26:04
I think the colors look worse in this situation.
00:26:06
That Dak Prescott? Yeah, Dak Prescott asked too much money.
00:26:10
But like quarterbacks are hard to come by.
00:26:12
We have.
00:26:13
We've already talked that we've already said before that Kirk Cousins, the best quarterback they've had since pro farmer.
00:26:19
I mean, the Packers have been very fortunate toe have guys like Bart Starr, um, art star Bret Farve, Aaron Rodgers and not hopefully joined in love.
00:26:29
I mean, yeah, I mean, quarterbacks are hard to come by, but like they're fortunate enough toe have guys last as long as you, um but yeah.
00:26:42
I mean, the Vikings, I don't think they're necessarily their most definitely not in the position to rebuild.
00:26:48
I think there. And I think they're in a position.
00:26:50
Teoh build back into playoff contention.
00:26:53
I predicted them to go nine and seven and not make the playoffs.
00:26:58
Matt two weeks ago predicted them to go nine and seven and make the playoffs.
00:27:02
So if you had to make a prediction for their record, um, what would you I would say that they're gonna finish about 97 or 10.
00:27:12
60 and I said, Be good enough to win this division.
00:27:17
I don't look at the NFC North as a division.
00:27:20
I look at the teams that have a lot of potential, but I also see a lot of teams that could disappoint in the multitude of ways.
00:27:27
And with a season that's a little bit in question, a little bit off to a slow start, I believe that we're gonna be seeing a lot of to get off to, You know, you talk a little bit of a sluggish start, really, That can have anybody so sluggish.
00:27:39
Start could be a downfall for a team like the Vikings.
00:27:42
But I could see the Vikings being a team that goes about 11 and five from the NFC North.
00:27:46
I do believe that it's gonna come down to the Vikings and the Packers.
00:27:50
If I had toe make my choice today, and that really could go either way if everybody is healthy and I didn't Both teams are fully loaded and fully ready to make a run at the post seasons this season.
00:28:02
Yeah, I've mentioned this before.
00:28:04
Um, the Bears to me, are a quarterback away from making a playoff run, but I mean, as a Packer fan, the Vikings were really the only team I'm worried about.
00:28:14
Um but I mean defense.
00:28:16
I am by far more afraid of the Bears than I am of the Vikings, but I don't really see it as long as the Bears have Mitchell, Travis Key or even Nick full, because I also think Nick Foles is a system quarterback that only works in Philadelphia as long as they still have now, probably Nick Foles as their quarterback.
00:28:34
I don't think he's gonna be there.
00:28:35
Answer.
00:28:36
But as long as they still have that very questionable quarterbacking situation, the Vikings are more of a concern from the when the Bears.
00:28:45
But so I asked Matt this question or Matt and I kind of went through this to end each team.
00:28:50
So we started with record.
00:28:53
So now we're going to go M v p.
00:28:56
So who do you think will be offensive NDP for the Vikings offensive P.
00:29:03
I definitely would say Dalvin Cook, but that's in question right now, so I do think well, this season to start, I'm gonna have to go with Adam feeling.
00:29:11
I believe Adam feeling is going to have a resurgence season.
00:29:14
Some people think that he might be over the hill, he's getting old.
00:29:17
I've even heard a lot of people call him overrated, which I think is incorrect.
00:29:22
I believe Adam feeling has been a major weapon in this offense.
00:29:26
Over the last three years, he has made catches that have bailed a lot of quarterbacks out.
00:29:30
He has the production to prove it.
00:29:31
He has the talent to prove it, and I believe this season he's got a little bit of chip on his shoulders to fund eggs is not here anymore.
00:29:37
So I'm gonna have to step up majorly.
00:29:40
And I think he's definitely got the mental toughness and the talent to do so.
00:29:43
So I'm gonna go the EM field.
00:29:46
Yeah, I mean, I said Dalvin, cook weren't toe hold out.
00:29:49
I would go Dalvin cook.
00:29:50
But I also said the same thing.
00:29:52
Um, without a viewing.
00:29:55
Eso Matt and I had the same thing.
00:29:57
I was your first.
00:29:59
Who's, er, defence of NPP defensive EVP.
00:30:02
I definitely I'm gonna go with the Neil Hunter Daniel Hunter is from.
00:30:06
I think he's going to have a season of about 17 plus sacks.
00:30:10
He's set for a dominant season with Michael Pierce coming in and if ever seen, Griffin doesn't get signed anytime soon.
00:30:17
I believe that he will find a way to come back to Minnesota because he's such a great fit there.
00:30:20
And if that happens, I believe the new hunters set up to have a very great all pro caliber season.
00:30:27
So I'm gonna go to hell hunter with a guy that's coming off two straight 14.
00:30:30
5 seasons.
00:30:32
I see no issues.
00:30:33
Why he's not capable of having 17 plus sacks.
00:30:36
So I 100% agree.
00:30:38
That's exactly who I had.
00:30:40
Eso most improved player.
00:30:42
I think I told you this earlier, but I'm gonna let you pick First North.
00:30:48
Improved player.
00:30:49
Um, more comeback player.
00:30:53
So it could be both you could think to.
00:30:55
You could pick one of the other.
00:30:58
Um, man.
00:30:59
See, I'm gonna The two guys that come to mind are urged Smith and Mike Hughes because I think their roles are going to step up.
00:31:06
But I'm going, I'm gonna I'm gonna go with my Hughes because I believe that that number one corner is huge in today's NFL.
00:31:13
You seen what an impact of dialects to find Gilmore can make.
00:31:17
And while worth Smith is talented and he's gonna be a major part of the offense, I believe the Vikings they're gonna turn to Justin Jefferson and Adams stealing a lot more for the production offensively, my fuses stepping into a role that he's gonna have to be solid right away and all the way through.
00:31:33
So I believe most improved player is definitely going to be my Hughes because I believe he's ready to step into that role.
00:31:40
Yeah, that's that's exactly who I had.
00:31:42
I had my cues.
00:31:43
I mean, we've talked.
00:31:44
We've already said this before the cornerback position.
00:31:48
The corners have been hurt immensely and is losing Jerry Gray to me is huge.
00:31:53
That's one of to me.
00:31:54
That's a bigger loss than losing your corn.
00:31:58
I mean, losing Xavier Rosen, Trae Waynes.
00:32:01
To me, that was more of a depth concern.
00:32:04
And now you be drafted Three corners and more personality on camera dance lor.
00:32:10
But I like like you said, I think Mike Hughes is definitely gonna be the guy, um, to step up.
00:32:16
And I think he's more than capable of doing so, Um, now he's got a year or two under his belt.
00:32:23
Yeah, no question Mike used would definitely be my pick.
00:32:26
Earth.
00:32:27
It was between him and Herb Smith for me.
00:32:28
And I'm gonna go with my Hughes because I think he's ready to step up from what I've seen thus far when he's got a chance to play.
00:32:35
Yeah.
00:32:36
So that is all we have.
00:32:38
James.
00:32:39
