Good morning everyone, and welcome to the newest episode of Vikings Report, with me and my buddy Drew. Don’t forget our live draft show is the 29th, and the Grand Poobah himself, Christopher Gates, will be joining us on our YouTube channel. But for now, we’ve got a big show in store for you this week:
TV Show tribute: I Dream of Jeannie...because who wasn’t a fan of Barbara Eden back in the day, amirite?
Jersey Segment: Antoine Winfield. He might be the best free agent signing in team history, and in my opinion the best CB we’ve ever had not named Bobby Bryant. Man, I loved Winfield. Best tackler in NFL history, too.
Vikings and NFL News: We talk the offensive line, and Mike Zimmer’s comments about the position group from his most recent press conference from a couple weeks ago.
Position Group Review: This week is cornerbacks. We look at the roster, pretty much agree they aren’t signing any more free agent CB’s, and then Drew reviews some top draft prospects. And I want to give a big hand to Drew on this segment, now that we’re almost done, as we’ll wrap it up with safeties next week.
I’m not a draft guru, and to be honest, a lot of sites I go to to read about draft prospects make me come away feeling like dope, because they talk way over my head and use phrases I don’t always understand. Sometimes, it feels like I just sat through a college class.
You can tell Drew really puts a lot of time into this, and talks about these guys in a straightforward way that makes me want to ask questions and learn more. If you haven’t checked out the show, and you’re not sure where to start, start with Drew’s draft segment.
It’s gold, every week.
Trivia: It’s head to head in a Jeopardy-style trivia, and it’s a ton of fun!
Again, thanks so much to everyone. I know we sound like a broken record on this, but any success we’ve had is because you’ve all watched, subscribed, commented, and sent us your questions. We’re essentially at 3,000 subscribers already, and I can’t even put into words how blown away we are with all the support we’ve gotten so far..
Don’t forget to register for the Justin Jefferson jersey giveaway we’re doing on Thursday, April 29th, during our live draft show on our YT channel (watch the show and find out how; instructions are in the Winfield segment), and yes, Fearless Leader himself, Mr. Chris Gates, will be our special guest that evening. We’ll also have a few other giveaways and a draft contest between us three and the field, too.
We’ve started a Patreon account, where you can get access to some behind the scenes stuff, show out takes that don’t make the final cut (Liz and Toonces have to take about 90 minutes and cut it in half every week), and early access to the show. We aren’t going to pocket any money we get from Patreon; it will go right back into the show to fund things like our Jefferson jersey giveaway and other future prizes.
