    He was the man towards the end of the year tho. He coulda had a few more ints that he dropped also so he's looking good going into next season imo. The only corner that was getting torched in the Seahawks game was Robinson, ide actually go out on a limb and say he cost us the game.

    Flashed for a half game here or there doesn't make him a possible top player. The top 10 guys are there for a reason and that is consistency.

    I like Xavier, don't get me wrong, but when anyone is listing him as a possible top 100 player, it's clearly Vikings bias and nowhere near realistic.

    IMO that play was on Munnerlyn, how do you not get the sack there?

    True. he took a terrible angle and you can't do that with a qb like Wilson, Had that been any other qb we get the sack there.

    For sure. Its hard to ask a CB, especially one that doesn't play much, to be able to perfectly cover when the play breaks down like that.

    Rhodes has flashed for much much more than just "a half game here and there". After the 2014 season he graded out as PFF's #14 overall corner. He had a 4 game stretch the end 2014 where only Revis played better than him. He really struggled to start 2015 and had issues with penalties but he again played his best football towards the end of the season. I'm not saying he is or will be a top 10 player but he has the potential to do so. He's flashed enough under Zimmer to think it's possible that if he can put it together for an entire season he'll be a top guy.
    2018 Vikings Draft :
    Round 1: Mike Hughes CB UCF
    Round 2: Brian O'Neill OT Pittsburgh
    Round 4: Jalyn Holmes DE Ohio State
    Round 5: Tyler Conklin TE Central Michigan
    Round 5: Daniel Carlson K Auburn
    Round 6: Colby Gossett G Appalachian State
    Round 6: Ade Aruna DE Tulane
    Round 7: Devante Downs LB California

    I really do hope you're right. I see Waynes starting and playing very well this year #lockdown

    It still angers me now. That game was on Munnerlyn more than AP fumble and Walsh missed kick. If Captain wasn't trying to be a hero and kept contain, any 1 of 3 or 4 others would have got that sack

    I'm not going to put equal blame on Captain, AP, and Walsh. Captain got too aggressive and he could have just slowed down a little bit and got the easy sack. AP kept fumbling the ball in that game and it finally came back to bite him. Walsh had an easy chip shot game winner and blew it.

    I've moved on...you know why? We win that game and we don't get Treadwell. Anything is possible but I'm not sure we could have beaten Carolina.

    I've moved on too. I was just giving my out look on the situation after someone said Josh Robinson lost us the game.

Diggs definitely won't be on it. Bridgewater is a long shot especially cus he wasnt included in that 100-91 range, even though I think he is far better than Derek Carr who came in at #100, so who knows maybe his name shows up on the next list of guys. Barr, Smith, and Griffen better be on that list or the list just isn't valid to begin with lol.
    Yeah, that list is complete BS. Demarco Murry and Eddie Lacy are ranked above AD. And the ONLY Viking in the list is AD? Like I said, complete BS.

    you're talking last year's list then, since they've only done 81-100 so far this year

    last year Murray, at least, had come off a huge year while AP hadn't played the entire season...
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Andy Carlson dropped an interesting nugget on his podcast about our punting situation. The Broncos have Britton Colquitt and drafted a punter in the 7th round this year. Who was Colquitt's coach in Denver? Mike Priefer. If the rookie beats him out and Colquitt is cut, then maybe? Fun thought at least.
