RE: NFL 2017

Vikings open their pre-season tonight in Buffalo and I see the Eagles are in Green Bay.

These games obviously don't matter for the regular season, but it's a chance to see some new players.

I was just listening to our local sports radio station and one of our All-Time Vikings, Chuck Foreman, was on, reminiscing about training camp and his playing days.

Chuck was a good guy and a great back, not quite HOF stature, but All-Pro many times and was our best offensive player in the 1970's.

He says after seeing our new running back Dalvin Cook, 1st Rd pick out of Florida St, that the kid will be the real deal, and most importantly, become an every down RB.

The one knock about Adrian Peterson was that he couldn't catch passes and had to come out on 3rd down. Also, he was terrible at blocking/picking up the blitz.

Of course, his power and breakaway speed got him to the HOF.

Anyway, a new RB with hopefully a better OL will get us back to the post-season.

^ Didnt think it was possible, but our 1st Team offense was even more pathetic looking than at any point last season.

If I had Tom Terrific as my QB, of course I'd feel that way.

Thanks, doll, that was fun. Glad it's still preseason! I saw some good things and some not so good but I suppose that's to be expected. Damn, lots of turnovers.

I loved seeing Carson sling that ball. Makes my heart race with excitement.

So... We traded Jordan Mathewes yesterday for a CB. Today in Bills training camp, Mathewes got injured. Dodged a bullet on that one.

RE: NFL 2017

Quick update for Duchess: Wentz will play a maximum of 2 series of downs today against Buffalo. Jeffrey will play today. Shady is tweeting out all kinds of love to Philly. Fly Eagles Fly. If you watch, keep an eye on Rasoul Douglas in our secondary. He only allowed one catch against GB last week. He's shaping up into a shutdown.

Music to my ears!

My intention right now is to watch.

I could bawl when I see Shady's name & then to immediately get pissed at Chip Kelly.
