Too bad for Bridgewater. Had Minnesota winning NFC North and making NFC Championship game. Still love the Vikings roster but have questions with QB position at the moment. Green Bay and Minnesota will still fight it out for the division however and probably both will make the playoffs.

what if Marshawn Lynch somehow ends up on the Vikings.....?

The Seahawks, who drafted at last count 17 running backs last week (actually, three), would then have to decide whether to keep him, trade him, or cut him. If he’s cut, Lynch becomes a free agent, able to sign with any team.

But there’s a caveat. If Lynch decides to wait until the regular season unfolds in order to ensure that he’ll land with a contender, unretiring after the trade deadline would result in Lynch being exposed to waivers, if/when he’s released.

This means that, if the Seahawks cut Lynch so that Lynch can, for example, join his hometown team (the Raiders), another team would be able to block that maneuver by claiming Lynch’s contract.

Ain't happening.

Looks like Ronnie Hillman will be the guy as soon as he gets some footing and reps in with the Vikings.

Bradford may be the better one but can anyone trust him to actually stay healthy?

I think I may have been wrong predicting the Packers as a top team in the NFC this year. No Starks, no Lacy, Shields done for the year and Rodgers still playing bad since week 6 last year. Packers look like a team about to take a major nose dive. Knile Davis is a monster pick up for you fantasy guys if your weak at RB!!!1

I gotta admit bleu... I smiled when I saw this.

I'd say the Bears have done exactly what this young man set out to achieve.

Looks like the offensive line issues regarding the Vikings seems more serious than I originally thought. Appears the early injuries may be starting to take its tole.

or maybe nobody wants to win

whoever it is, a three game winning streak is probably enough to get it done
