Welcome, welcome to KIRKTOBER !!!!!!
Kyle Brandt opposes Kirk.
“Get your jokes, get your memes, get what you want, but just stand in front of the TV and watch Kirk Cousins because there is no better QB playing in the league right now than him.”

An update on Chris’s health.
Vikings RB Dalvin Cook is training again. CB Mackensie Alexander and Bashaud Breeland are back after being absent yesterday. CB Kris Boyd and TE Ben Ellefson are back on the pitch after their outing yesterday. WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette again absent.

Michael Pierce absent from training.
No Michael Pierce in training. It would be a tough loss for the Vikings to the NFL’s No.2 team in rushing yards per carry

Hi to the merch service now available.
The o line flies away.
#Vikings OL coach Phil Rauscher via KFAN:
“Our goalkeepers and our center are playing extremely well at the moment. I think it gives [Kirk Cousins] a little confidence… He finds a certain stability in the center of the pocket.

Mache special edition merch.
Johnny Randle is ready for Purple Friday, isn’t he?
PA on the Jefferson touchdown!
So far, the through pass has not been necessary.
The next thing the MIN offense should implement is a commitment to go deep, as was evident in 2019 and 2020.
They currently have 1 offensive gain in 2021 for over 35 yards – the TD from 64 yards to @SaltSpicethe guy, KJ Osborn.
1 play over 35 yards in 2021 ranks 24th in the NFL.
