Diggs is a top 10 WR, 

I had to put a list together & see.....

Michael Thomas / Amari Cooper / Odell Beckham / D. Adams / Keenan Allen / JuJu / S. Watkins / D. Hopkins / Julio Jones / AJ Green / B. Cooks / T.Y. Hilton

I put 12 up I think are better than Diggs. I actually have more....Guys like Edelman & Kupp

Just my thoughts....

Robert Woods, Chris Godwin, Jarvis Landry, OBJ, Allen Robinson, Golladay,  Sanu, Christian Kirk, ..... I could add many more.

Why does this guy think he is so good? He's a good player but obviously has that me first BS going on. He's like 25 other NFL players at his position. He's a good #2 WR who misses a bunch of games. There are plenty of those around the league but they play more than he does.

Yeah I disagree...

Hopkins, Adams, Thomas, Julio, Cooper, OBJ, Diggs, Allen, Thielen, Juju for me. 

this tells you a lot about queen culture, stumbled upon at yahoo yesterday.

The Vikings are stuck with quarterback Kirk Cousins through 2020. And that fact apparently kept them from signing CFL quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell.

Via 3downnation.com, Mitchell recently said that he worked out last December for the Vikings, after being named the CFLโ€™s Most Outstanding Player. Coach Mike Zimmer, according to Mitchell, was present.

After the workout, an unnamed team official met with Mitchell and asked how he could help the Vikings win.

โ€œI was like, โ€˜Well, for one, Iโ€™ve never been anywhere in football and not won a championship as a starter,'โ€ Mitchell said. โ€œโ€˜High school, DI, DI-AA, now here in the CFL. Everywhere Iโ€™ve ever been Iโ€™ve won a championship within the first three years Iโ€™ve been there. I can help you do that. Iโ€™m going to come in here, Iโ€™m going to take Kirkโ€™s job.'โ€

That wasnโ€™t what the Vikings wanted to hear, according to Mitchell.

โ€œHe was like, โ€˜Oh, no, no, n-n-n-no, we donโ€™t want you to take Kirkโ€™s job. We want you to come in here, help him with his eyes, tell him what you see, do everything you can to make him a better quarterback. But we need a good quarterback room, we donโ€™t want you to cause controversy. At that moment I was like, โ€˜Well, Iโ€™m not signing with the Minnesota Vikings.โ€™

โ€œI donโ€™t understand that thought process. All that tells me is thereโ€™s a culture in that building right now that, โ€˜Hey, your job is secure because of the money we paid you. Donโ€™t worry about anything you do or the decisions you make or anything the media says, just do what we tell you to do and youโ€™re going to be fine.โ€™ Itโ€™s mind-blowing. You donโ€™t even want a guy thatโ€™s pushing him or creating competition.โ€

While Mitchellโ€™s version of the events may indeed be accurate, the Vikings wouldnโ€™t be the only team that wants a backup quarterback who knows his place. Thereโ€™s a way to push the starter and to create competition without having a clear and open effort by the backup to supplant the guy who holds the job.

Regardless of the manner in which Mitchell interpreted the message from the Vikings, the contract given to Cousins says it all. Three years, $84 million, fully guaranteed. Itโ€™s his job, unless and until the Vikings decide that theyโ€™ve had enough, and that theyโ€™re willing to pay all or part of his $29.5 million salary in 2020 for him to go away.

Depending on what happens over the course of the next 12 games, that could be what happens.

That is hilarious @Tdog

The guy is a football player....he wants to PLAY not be Kark's QB coach/babysitter. 

โ€œI can see why Adam Thielen is frustrated. Because Adam Thielen is saying in practice Iโ€™m wide open down the field or Iโ€™m beating this guy by two steps, why is our $84 million dollar quarterback not accurate enough to get me the ball or get me a chance?โ€

He'd be scary as the Viking QB because he wouldn't listen to the coaches. That's why he isn't signed by an NFL team. It sounds like he isn't coach-able

So not just one....but TWO WR's in the top 10.

I'll give ya they're better than anything the Pack has not named Adams but the Viking QB must REALLY suck if they have TWO WR's in the top 10.



Itโ€™s embarrassing that they canโ€™t get a passing game going. Diggs and Thielen are legit players and the fact that they canโ€™t get the ball to them should be embarrassing for Vikings fans. I love it personally, Iโ€™d much rather those guys not touch the ball. I donโ€™t want either of them in GB, I think theyโ€™re both divas. Thielen gets up bitching to the ref every single play he doesnโ€™t catch the ball. Theyโ€™re super talented though, both great route runners, super productive despite having Case Keemun and Kirk Cousins, elite hands, etc. 

I was at that Vikes game at Lambeau a few weeks ago.  There were a number of passes that day where either Diggs or Thielen were definitely open but Cousins made poor throws that didn't connect.  I thought the Packerss' MVP that day was Cousins, his poor decision making and lack of accuracy was the difference in that game.  Cousins was definitely better a couple years ago with the Redskins than he looks now.  I just wonder if the pressure of the big contract is affecting him.

The Twins have a long history of struggling with the Yankees, anytime. Smug Twins fans have been quiet all season long because the Twins were "good" in the regular season, against AL Central pitching.  They did not want to jinx their chances in the playoffs by bragging, especially when they found they had to play the Yankees first. That was probably the worst luck the Twins could have had. Either that or playing the Astros first. One more game for the Twins, if things go as I hope they do.

Mmmmm, I can think of two off the top of my head that weren't.
