The following thoughts are about present-day Minnesota Vikings topics, answered by PurplePTSD. Nowadays is the May perhaps 29th version, tackled in a from-the-hip fashion. If you have concerns, you should e mail them to DustinBakerNFL@gmail.com.
Also, please be aware: These are opinion-based responses. Some solutions will be incorrect from time to time. But we’ll test to retain that to a minimal.
Q: Why would Mike Zimmer not want to engage in Kellen Mond final calendar year more than a draft select dispute?
A: Out of spite.
Zimmer reportedly required a defensive player with the select utilized on Mond. He did not get his way, so the experience is that he “pouted” and stubbornly refused to utilize Mond in a QB2 capacity.
No make a difference how a great deal of the Zimmer-Mond stuff is accurate, it is strange. The 2021 Vikings — with or devoid of draft drama — should’ve had every single vested desire conceivable in intellect for Mond to realize success.
Luckily, the Vikings new coaching personnel will give the man a truthful shake.
Q: I examine the post about Cameron Dantzler and Andrew Booth probably starting off more than Patrick Peterson. That can not be correct, can it?
A: Which is Bleacher Report’s facet-eye theory.
No, we do not agree on Peterson as a CB3 or CB4. It would be great if Andrew Booth could dethrone Peterson appropriate absent, but that appears like optimistic considering.
Booth will transition into a starter as Peterson winds down his profession. It is “believe when we see it” on Peterson not setting up towards the Green Bay Packers in 7 days 1.
Q: Of program, there have been Akiem Hicks rumors for a couple of months. But the Eddie Goldman one is new. How would he suit with the 2022 Vikings?
A: Goldman was just lately inserted into the Vikings rumor mill by Monthly bill Barnwell of ESPN, alongside with Akiem Hicks.
Goldman is a nose tackle, and Minnesota has Dalvin Tomlinson for that. Goldman to the Vikings doesn’t make as well much feeling. He’s a very good football player — also a commencing football player. Arguably, Minnesota won’t have room for two beginning nose tackles.
This would be an fascinating union, but don’t rely on it coming to fruition.
