You forgot to add in the personal seats licenses.... We just got the bill for ours: $4,500 per seat. No thanks. We will not be carrying over our season tickets.

Not that I'm bitter or anything...

I agree that they are expensive, but needed for funding a new stadium. The thing that a lot of people seem to forget with PSL's is that they actually lower ticket prices. There hasn't been a new stadium for a while that has been built without PSL's. I'm not a season ticket holder so I can't say I know how you feel, but still. There are still good things about PSL's.

That's ********.

From what I understand about psl's it doesn't reduce the public portion of the funding that we are all already paying. It helps the Wilfs pay their portion, which they shouldn't have a problem paying anyway due to the profits that they will make just from being an NFL owner.

As with any business, additional expenses get passed onto the consumer. If it didn't come in the form of PSLs, it'd be in the form of higher ticket prices, concession prices, etc.

6 of one, half dozen of another. Higher ticket prices &/or psl's do not affect the cost of the stadium.

I think you're missing the point. PSL's help pay for the new stadium and lower ticket prices. It's really the same thing if you're paying ridiculous amounts of money for a single ticket or paying ridiculous amounts of money for PSL's. It's all the same thing. It's like cutting 1 foot of length off of the end of a blanket, and sewing it on the other end.

The Wilf's may be billionaires, but that doesn't mean they can just whip out their checkbooks and pay for their part of the stadium. If that were the case, the Vikings would have gotten their new stadium years ago.

PFF's Projected Vikings lineup with ratings: https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...esota-vikings/

Obviously these don't include FAs and Drafts, but it shows that with a FA signing or two and an impact draft pick or two, the team isn't far off.

Same here. I'm hoping that adding LBs with a pulse (Mack or Mosley in Round 1 would be alright) that makes him responsible for less helps. Looks like we have cash to sign a few FAs. Hopefully that would involve a CB. Verner's been rumored.

Lots of speculation on the interwebz that the Vikings are interested in trading for Ryan Mallet. Thoughts?

No. Just because he is a back up to Tom Brady doesn't mean he is ultimately gonna be good. I haven't seen anything of him to say that he is gonna be better than what we have already. I'd rather get a QB in the draft.

Wrong. You think that prices won't go up because of the psls? They will be making money off of both. No one said that the Wilfs paid for the stadium out of pocket. They took out a loan & will pay it back with BOTH psls & higher ticket prices. Not to mention the development surrounding the stadium. Either way, we chose to not pay the extra $9000 for the privilege of keeping our season tickets. We'll still end up going to games, though if tickets are available.

Oh, and no thanks to Mallett.

I would be ok with it if it was a late rd pick(5-7). But the Pats are gonna want more then that for him.

And the only reason I say that is because I dont like any of the QBs in this years draft. :-/

I like Mallett, but only if the pick they gave up was a 4th rounder or lower.

Oh yeah, not to beat a dead horse.... but our tickets, even with the $4500 per seat psl, are increasing from $150 per seat to $300 per seat..... so there's that.

My father in law bought the actual seats where the tickets were (the season tickets date back to his father & the inaugural season Met Center) in the dome. And my wife bought me a chunk of Metrodome turf for Valentine's Day. What a gal.

There. Now i am done talking about how psls actually kept ticket prices lower for everyone.

Quote:
First-year Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has other things to worry about before the NFL draft in May.

Questions such as defensive scheme put the cart before the horse of negotiations with the Vikings' troop of free agents, which includes the team's highest-paid player from a year ago in defensive end Jared Allen.

An otherwise candid Zimmer gave out the boilerplate quote in his Friday press conference from the NFL Scouting Combine that he's 'hopeful' the team can come to terms with Allen.

"We'd love to sign all of our guys, obviously when I was in Cincinnati a year ago, we had a lot of free agents and weren't able to sign them all," Zimmer said. "Unfortunately in today's NFL we understand we're not going to be able to sign them all. Hopefully we can get worked out with [Allen] and we'll see how it goes."

'Worked out' likely means a massive salary reduction from the $17 million Allen earned in 2013 to a more reasonable price for what will be a 32-year-old defensive end come next season. The Vikings already extended one 30-plus defensive end in Brian Robison last season and also have a 26-year-old Everson Griffen to continue negotiations with.

Zimmer told NFL.com's Marc Sessler that the team 'hasn't talked about [franchise] tags at all' regarding Griffen, which falls in line with what Spielman said Thursday.

While general manager Rick Spielman and first-year offensive coordinator Norv Turner hammer out the plan at quarterback, Zimmer's forte and immediate focus appears to be on the Vikings' defense -- which finished last in scoring (480 points allowed) and gave up a NFL-record tying 37 touchdown passes (tied for most since 1970).

Pinning down the end next to Robison will be a key part of the equation for Zimmer to implement his style that proved successful as the defensive coordinator in Cincinnati. Regardless of who that defensive end is, Zimmer revealed the Vikings' roster needs 'a lot' of work.

"Anytime you finish 31st in the league [in yards allowed], you have a few holes," Zimmer said. "We're going to need a lot of good football players."

Zimmer ran a 4-3 scheme with the Bengals that predicated on a front-four pass rush and press corners that consistently thrived in man-to-man coverage. With the Vikings' personnel, it's likely Zimmer sticks with the 4-3 due to their extreme youth and age at the linebacker position.

Although Zimmer admitted he hasn't studied any college players yet, he's already conveyed the type of players he wants in Minnesota to his scouts.

"One of the first things we did was brought all the scouts in, put some tape on and talked about the different players we had in Cincinnati," Zimmer said. "Tried to show them: 'This is the techniques we play, this is what we're looking for.'"

But part of getting the players that 'fit the system' is moving on from the ones that don't.

With underwhelming players like Letroy Guion set to make $4.3 million next season and an aging Chad Greenway with a $8.2 million cap hit, shedding or restructuring players under contract -- as Spielman has noted -- will be a major part of Zimmer's roster overhaul to get the Vikings defense the way he wants it. 1500ESPN's Judd Zulgad broke down the team's free agents on Thursday.

"I've been so involved in looking at our players, free agency, just starting to get going on the draft," Zimmer said. "Really we'll start evaluating quarterbacks once we get back after the Combine. I haven't looked at any college football players yet."

Zimmer on Ponder

The Vikings' current quarterback scenario may be as unstable as any in the league, but that doesn't appear to be Zimmer's place in the discussions quite yet.

With former 12th-overall pick Christian Ponder as the only cadence caller under contract, Spielman has noted he'll lean heavily on guidance from first-year offensive coordinator Norv Turner, whose quarterback history includes passers from Troy Aikman to Kerry Collins to Brandon Weeden.

But Zimmer reserved complete judgment of Ponder until he can get on the field with him in April (if Ponder is still there.)

"I think everybody realizes Christian has a ton of ability, great arm, runs good, very bright guy," Zimmer said. "I think everybody wants him to live up to expectations that not only we have for him but he has for himself.

"The patience part...I'm not a patient person with anybody. I think once we get on the field, we'll figure those things out."

Patience is fleeting not only with Zimmer, but with most NFL front offices. The 'three-year' rule for quarterbacks has shrunk, just as the grace period for coaches has diminished. Patience is what likely earned Ponder his nine starts last season after Matt Cassel proved to be the better quarterback for the team.

But, as Zimmer said, he's not very patient and that likely won't bode well for Ponder.
Goodbye ****** Tampa 2. I am leaning towards the Vikings drafting Dennard (hopefully with a little trade down, but after a decent 40 time today the Vikes will probably have to grab him @ 8). A Rhodes/Dennard CB duo would be pretty sweet, especially considering who we have to play twice a year, every year.
