    Agreed on Sloter. Dude has a lot of potential, Mannion is extremely replaceable if we need a backup. I'd rather have Kaepernick.

    Agree with everything you said here.

    Seems the refs always over call just to set the tone. I remember this last year for the first few pre season games.

    It took 1 pre season game for Johnson to show more than what Tread has ever shown. He made a nice grab and tracked the ball really well.

    Holmes looked and played great. He was a name to watch from Patterson early on and it looks like he wasn't just blowing smoke.

    I didn't watch a lot of Dru Samia or Udoh but from Twitter they seem to have played with some great toughness on some plays and looked to be maulers.

    First of all, glad to see some Teddy fans over here! I'm severely outnumbered at my usual hangout. Most bash Teddy any chance they can get. Pricks!

    Anyway, great recap!

    The penalties were RIDICULOUS! Pretty sure that's why Zimmer's face was so red. He was already cussing by the 2nd or 3rd penalty. How do you think he feels by 13? Preseason or not, the boys got their butt chewed that night!

    I like Abdullah's burst. I don't know if he can sneak onto the roster or not, but he'd be a nice piece to add... Hasn't he also been getting some reps as WR3?

    Sloter vs. Mannion, yeah, oddly enough, Mannion looked better than expected. I don't want the decision to be a close one, because for some odd reason the Vikings will choose Mannion! Sloter had another good outing, but he has to continue it. Supposedly he doesn't look good in practice. Okay? But he looks good when given the opportunity, in, ya know, live games. The Vikings continue to give Mannion all the second team reps (they did the same thing with Siemian last offseason), and I don't get it. Why not give Sloter a chance? They've done all they could to hold onto him, so why not give him more opportunities? I don't understand what's going on here, but it's an odd thing, especially considering how good he looked last preseason and how trashy Siemian was. Yuck.

    Speaking of:

    Okay, looks like I can't share more than one video at a time? The heck?

    I had to outsmart PSD. I can link more than one video, I just can't use the video tags. And since you have to watch on YouTube anyway, here are the videos of all of the the plays from Cousins, Mannion, Sloter, Browning, and Teddy. They should be in order too, so click on the one you want.
