Boy, Banyard sure seems to be running well. Not great carries near the goal line, but he seems to find space in the open field pretty well. Or are we blocking that well?

Man, those holes are huge in the Titans defense. Banyard and McKinnon both gaining decent yards on the ground.

Adam Thielen with his first TD reception in the NFL. Great catch. The Vikings have to keep him around. 

 

That was also a hell of a throw.

I find it easier to watch the line on BTN right now because of game speed and QB expectations.

Haven't noticed poor line play but he is driving through contact.

Teddy might want to put those gloves back on. Both of those passes looked JoshFreemanian.

Yeah, those weren't very good throws. Don't know if Thielen got confused on the second pass, but he appeared to throw to the wrong spot.

Clearly, I don't know anything about farming, but why are they advertising seed in the fall?

Should know that being one generation removed from the farm, but I don't. Unless they buy them now for planting next spring? I will stop.

I am hoping that since Sankey is playing tonight that means Shonn Greene will start. I am desperate for RBs on my FF team.

That sure seemed like a hell of a series for Cole. He was in on 2/3 of all the plays. Tackle's a running back (that Brinkley lost), ranged way to one sideline to help a cornerback corral a receiver and then blitzes and gets under QBs feet to disrupt a play. 

 

Brinkley seems like more of a leader, but Cole seems like more of a playmaker.

I actually noticed that they open all of there manly advertisements the moment football starts. Farming counts.

Hutchinson is in the booth? Wasn't he known as a super surly interview?

As for the Bridgewater gloves discussion...

 

When I talked to him in June about wearing gloves, he told me the following:

 

“If I can get a special kind of glove to wear while it’s raining, I’ll wear one. But the type of glove that I use is only for dry weather… and for snow, but not the rain. I’m just going to continue to do what got me here.”

 

“I’ll probably have a special glove for when it does snow.”

Yes, he was cooperative but let reporters know with his body language that he didn't want to spend a lot of time at it. So people didn't bother him often. He is trying to now have a analyst career I had read. Funny how that works.

If the Vikings can't find room for Banyard on the 53-man, what are the odds they can put him on the practice squad. Is he still eligible?
