I think the #2 QB battle might be interesting.  I figure they'll keep Anderson because he's the type of QB that could win you a few games in the middle of a season if Cam misses some time, but Joe Webb is an interesting prospect that might push for the #2 job.  


Otherwise, no surprise to see Cam a bit rusty...if there's a time to be rusty it's in mini-camp in June.  

If you have anymore thoughts of Joe Webb winning the #2, you need to go back and watch the "highlights" of the Vikings playoff game he started.


Hopefully he'll get some looks as a WR.

In Topic: Thomas Davis sheds knee brace

18 June 2014 - 04:27 PM

Okay before everyone in here has a meltdown:


I've torn both ACLs, had procedures and rehabbed both.  Because of this, I've talked to countless doctors, therapists and read any medical journal I could find on the subject.  BRACES DO ALMOST NOTHING TO PREVENT ACL TEARS.  For someone who has normal muscle development(or beyond normal for an NFL athlete), the amount of force required and the type of force required cannot be stopped by any brace.  


The majority of progressive surgeons/sports doctors at this point do not recommend braces, since if anything, they prevent the natural strengthening of the muscles that help stabilize the knee.  Braces now are more or less to help the patient psychologically "trust" the knee again.  If Davis doesn't feel the need to hesitate and second guess his knee, there is almost no advantage to wearing the brace.  If Davis feels it's slowing him down(which is more then likely true but not to a huge degree), then he should most definitely take it off.

Wouldn't mind him being our #2 TE instead of Ed.  The guy's ceiling is as high as it gets.

We have about 5-6 million in cap room, and we need to save that all in case a serviceable Tackle is cut.  We have plenty of depth on the line, and no room for Canty, although I did want him when he was a FA a couple years back.

In Topic: I played madden 15 at e3. questions?

Did you play the game on All Madden by chance? Is the CPU run game still impossible to stop on All Madden?  In the next gen version, the CPU is ridictulous with Off-Tackle runs and gets perfect blocks every time.  My LB and DL is all high 80s or 90s and get pancaked by 75 overall lineman for 15 yards a play. 


Also, did you notice any fixes with "True Step"?  They added in a so called realistic feature in last year's next gen version that made offensive ball carriers have to break down and shuffle their feet to change direction....too bad the defense doesn't have to do the same, so they always have a advantage and can cut you off.
