Not too shabby
I enjoy the show. The “write that down” segment is great. Sometimes I feel like Judd is losing his mind FAR too much about the “left side of the line” without considering things like Ezra Cleveland’s ability to play tackle considering he played tackle in college. They also seem to be putting to much stock in certain players (Dantzler) that took on nobodies. A lot of times, they’re incredibly negative about EVERYTHING. But, sometimes, I agree with the takes
Seriously daily. They find ways to make a daily dose of Vikings talk interesting. They do it effortlessly. I listen daily.
No more excuses?
I’m just as sick of excuses for Kirk as anyone, but I’m not ready to call our o-line a significant improvement yet. Despite Darrisaw’s first round pedigree, do you really expect him to be better in his rookie season than Reiff was last season? Gun to my head, I’d guess not. Davis SHOULD be better than Cole or Dozier, but the range of outcomes for him is still wide at this point. I’m optimistic, but it’s way too early to say “no more excuses.” But if you’re confident, I would love to see a Write That Down predicting our pass blocking grade this season / through eight games. 20th best is my guess, and that would still qualify as an excuse for Kirk in my opinion.
