Absolutely terrible

Nice trade for the Eagles. Why the hell they traded for Bradford in the first place I have no idea, but not a bad way of redeeming themselves a bit.

Why didn't the Vikes just tank? They weren't getting into the playoffs even with Teddy...

SUCH A TERRIBLE TRADE I HAVE NO IDEA

I've felt too bad due to Teddy's knee disintegration to make fun of my friends that are Vikings fans lately, but that's over now. Wtfffffff. Why would anyone do that? Hahaha

People keep saying the Vikings are in "win-now" mode, but nothing about that roster really makes me believe that Bradford is the final piece of the championship puzzle for them. They still have to contend with Green Bay to win their division. Adrian Peterson is 31. How are these guys in the Super Bowl discussion?

Stranger things have happened, but I generally agree. Though it is worth noting that the Vikings won their division last year and were a missed chip shot FG from sending Seattle home.

Their D is very very good. Offense was the only question mark. If Bradford can stay healthy (has he ever?) they could do pretty well. Super bowl- doubtful.

The move was terrible either way.
post #4629 of 4994
Even if Bradford could stay healthy, his play was never that great to lead anyone to think he could win the Super Bowl. The guy is a check down machine and can't throw any of the medium or deep routes in the NFL.

Bradford can make the throws - the arm is there. With the deep balls, it's more a question if he can last an entire season doing that. Dude is brittle.

It's a great trade for the eagles. That was the max value they were ever going to get for Bradford and Wentz was going to be their eventual starter anyway.

The NFL people all like the Vikes D, and there are some statistical comparisons from last year to Denver.

I think it's going to be a tougher road for them.

Bradford is a much better QB than his statistics indicate. Give him a decent offensive line and good receiving corps and let's see what he can do.
post #4632 of 4994
Bradford is a much worse QB than his stats indicate because he spends so much time injured and the stats don't account for all the losses his teams accumulate for that.
post #4633 of 4994
Bradford's a guy who has not always had a lot to work with, including receivers and offensive line, and the latter probably contributes at least a bit to his getting hurt. I don't see him having a renaissance in his career at this point and showing us the potential he might have had when drafted. I'd love to see him succeed, but I suspect we'll get more of the same.

Never been a Carson Palmer fan but he is now my idol because of the slavering frenzy his trolling induced in Patriot fans and Brady fanbois.
post #4635 of 4994

I've always like Carson Palmer. He was a stud in Cincy when his receivers were Chad Johnson, TJ Who's-your-momma (Houshmandzadeh...had to look that one up), and Chris Henry (RIP). Injuries really derailed his career for a bit. I'm glad he's found a good team with a great coach and offense that fits his skill set. Hopefully he wins a ring before he retires.
