i wouldnt go that far. thomas has far superior physical tools but his accuracy is terrible and i dont think hes got it mentally
blaine gabbert is comeplete shit and i could play qb better than him so lets not insult any of these other guys by bringing his name into the conversation

FSU Ambassador to the masses
you think theres gonna be a lot of turnover in the offseason? what position coaches are gone?
Our OL,WR, OC,and QB coach will all be different from what we are hearing
I've been told the same from a coaches agent. Shane is the lone offensive holdover. That should go over well.
Shane is fresh blood he deserves another year plus he recruits his ass off.. Ocain and Newsome do nothing..
O'cain is retiring
Newsome is going back to JMU.. Feel bad for them
Sherman is going to Purdue
Stiney will probably not get fired he will be repositioned and be a lead recruiter.
Accuracy can be corrected, but physical tools and talent can't be taught. Ponder won't be starting for the Vikings long, unless they strive to be mediocre. Adrian Peterson had more rushing yds than Ponder had passing yds the last 10 games of the season.
You can't leave the office to recruit of you're not a coach. No way he accepts that. He can go coach somewhere else.
owell we will make it without him imo
I'd love to steal him as a position coach.
He could get a OC job somewhere from what we here
i think ponder will prove some people wrong next year if the vikings get him somebody to throw the ball to. minnesota has literally the worst receiving corps ive ever seen. its no wonder that peterson has so many yards, theres nobody to throw to.
last year Tampa Bay had a horrible receiving corps and we went out and signed Vincent jackson and just having him elevated our receivers so much.
if anything this year has showed that ponder just needs to make good decisions and manage the game and the vikings can win. ala AJ mccarron for most of last year. good defense, strong running game, make smart throws and you will win. look at his stats, when he doesnt throw a pick the vikings win the game and thats with no playmakers. losing harvin killed the vikings passing game completely
1. A new staff can't fix guys like Davis. Against FSU, I watched Davis on abt 10 plays just take 3 steps and stop to watch the play. He stopped because the ball was not being thrown to him. Pretty sure he is the most talented WR VT has.
2. Getting a new staff can help improve the playcalling, but it appears problems are deeper than that.
3. VT has been pretty bad all year, which is not typical of a Beamer team.
4. Logan Thomas is the worst preseason all hype machine QB I have ever seen. Someone will waste a draft pick on him, though.
5. Nova.....if any of you know spanish, "no va" is hilariously funny and ironic for the name of such an awful QB.
I am not sold on Josh Freeman either. I think he is solid, but don't think he will take TB to the Super Bowl. Way too inconsistent to take the Bucs back to the Super Bowl.
i agree. our retarded fanbase wants to get rid of him this year when theres absolutely nobody out there to replace him with. theres no FAs and nobody in the draft id want over him at this point. i think he can get us to the playoffs and maybe top out in the NFC champ game if we could fix our defense. we gave up 5 4th qtr leads because we cant stop anyone and everyone blames the qb. its simply amazing.
Schiano is defensive coach, so that's his priority. I'd give Freeman another year and if he doesn't improve, it's time to move on. I'd also be scouting Tyler Wilson, Bray, and Murray. If they would draft and give these guys time to learn and develop at the pro level, they would be very good picks for TB.
do not want bray. kid is a moron and would never get along with schiano. schiano is all about high character guys and bray's record speaks for itself. he has a lot of growing up to do.
any other year id be all about wilson. i really like him but we just cant afford to get a qb this year
murray is intriguing and would be my pick next year as of right now. i have no idea what qbs will be declaring next year but hes the most accomplished one at this point
our defense is a complete abomination in the secondary and we have to address that with our first 4 or 5 picks. we need at least 2 CBs either in FA or draft, a linebacker, and some more DL depth. offense just isnt in the cards til the late rounds
You guys have two very good WR's and a RB that will be there for the future. Agree to the CB's though, need more help. Could land Dee Milliner or Banks in the 1st Rd.
yeah thats what im looking at. im not really enthralled with either. both should be solid corners but i dont see a revis or a peterson there. im of the opinion that we trade back some and acquire an extra 2nd and take the best player on the board later in the first, we need a right tackle as well so that could be a late teens pick for us. i like jordan poyer from oregon state and logan ryan from rutgers alot in the 2nd round
we also need another safety to put back there with barron
