of the guy said what type of parents name their child judd and i said you could ask my parents but they’re both deceased though it’s going to be tough my parents are dead stop making fun yeah uh someone when i was on a i was on the back pocket podcast a couple of cool dudes dec also another declan and andrew and they asked me the same question what’s it like working for someone or working with someone named judd i was like i don’t know by the way it’s not that rare my name my name is declan and everyone’s like what’s it like working with a judd like i i i don’t know judd’s like not it’s not an atom it’s not like the most common name but i would even say it’s more popular but when people like when you’re an adult and you make fun of my name okay like do you really think i’m going to think about it like in first grade yeah i mean my name is judd zolgad first of all you could pick either of them second of all i’m 51. so like if you’re like what type of name do you have it’s like okay so uh yeah yeah let’s um not talk about that because it bores me if nothing you know uh so this is write that down every wednesday we make predictions we hold each other accountable we’re the only show in america and we also do this on mackie and judd the expanded version that goes beyond football we’re the only show in america that actually circles back to our predictions with statistics all right we’re the only ones that have the guts enough to put our reputations on the line three vikings or football related predictions however loosely related they are that’s fine each week we keep track of completion percentage and touchdowns and listeners if you guys want to participate hit us up send declan a message through the score north app there’s a feedback link at the bottom of it by the way uh you can also on the scorneth app you can register to hang out with judd and declan in a gopher football suite on september 11th and get a pair of chill boys chill boys making all of us feel very comfortable at chillboys.com the best underwear all three of us have ever worn i think you’re gonna find it’s pretty obvious how chilled and laid back we are today all right uh it’s because we all got a pair of chill boys on we’re rocking them and you can find out for yourself at chillboys.com yep all right let’s get to the accountability session here boys we’ll start with judd you said wyatt davis will be second on the vikings depth chart by the start of the regular season and the day after the second preseason game according to you we’re trusting you on this all right we’re trusting your why davis reporting but not only was he working the day after with the second team he was working with the first team yes i don’t know if this can come i don’t know if this can come off yet you know phil i’m gonna side with dex here i i think we need to see the debt with the actual issue depth chart say it yeah so like like like yes he did get reps with the first team on what would that have been monday right on tuesday he was back with like the second and third teamers so i i think in fairness uh we we need to wait until we see an actual issued viking depth chart this is very noble of you i was ready to just give this to you but i don’t think my report but i don’t think reporting qualifies as a depth chart you know because the team’s doing them now now if the team wasn’t doing them i think you’re on the right path when does the team release they don’t have depth there’s one out right now yes okay because there there’s a game there’s a game book for the chiefs game on friday out right now but i’m just saying i think he moves up to two like after last cuts but before the season starts so i’ve got time here it’s not wrong i just don’t think that we can give me the point yet so on the most recent depth chart he’s still third uh you know i would have to look at that i didn’t even look yet because i’m counting on uh my guy dakota dozier being cut so okay well there might be a prediction or two about that this week too all right uh so we’ll take that off the board for you i said jake browning and kellen monde will combine for over 200 yards passing and at least two touchdowns in that second preseason game woof no touchdowns jake browning was awful uh i said however the vikings will sign everson griffin before the start of the regular season and he’ll apologize again for his comments about kirk being asked and uh he said he apologized again to the front office he’s going to approach kirk himself sometime this week and apologies he’s very apologetic about calling kirk ass on twitter so there you go uh listeners kyle said tim tebow will not be on the jaguars roster in week one tebow was one of the first players in the nfl to be cut from a preseason roster and declan you had two things come off the board you said the vikings will bring josh rosen in for a workout can that can’t that still be on the board no he signed with falcons oh diddy all right well there’s that’s what i know okay yeah so we’ll just take that off there i think they should have double passed him you gave him a double buzz that’s fine yeah i threw an incomplete pass and then i took the ball again and i threw another incomplete pass i skipped them again i threw in the double coverage and then i and then i and then i threw at the feet again yeah oh can’t that’s can’t that still be on the board no no actually it actually cannot it can’t be and then you said it and then you said kellen monde will throw the first touchdown pass in the vikings colts game we’re still waiting still waiting touchdown pass so these aren’t entirely accurate because judd is actually at 34 uh when we take that one off the board so declan leading the way with a 41 completion percentage two touchdowns judd listeners are 36 percent two touchdowns judd at 34 no touchdowns i’m at 33 percent and five touchdowns on the season so all right let’s get josh in here our guest listener predicted you like writing things down on write that down josh what’s going on man you are a veteran you’ve been on write that down a couple times before what is your strategy today sir uh well i got a couple of check downs probably and then i got one massive touchdown i want to throw at the end i’ve actually never been on the purple daily version and i’m also here to correct the mistake love it love it so we’re gonna start with josh we’re gonna go judd over to declan then back to me three trips around the room let’s fire this up here josh you’re under center first write this down all right so like i said i’m here to correct a rookie mistake i was on the old mackie and judd write that down back in january and i was drinking the purple kool-aid and the bounce back that zimmer tends to have after a bad season so i had made the dumb prediction of an exact record of 12 and 4 before the 17 game schedule came out so rather than saying an exact oh i’m here to write that down and simply just say because i’m no longer drinking the kool-aid the vikings will not win more than 10 games so i’m going to give myself up to 10 games you had i’m just going through your old predictions from january so you had the while winning a first round series you had the twins finally trading a top five prospect at the deadline which uh that kind of fell flat so this is a chance for some redemption here for josh yeah i was uh i was trying to hit home runs and throw touchdowns in that session there love it you can’t be afraid it was january man things were different back then right judd your first prediction uh anthony barr will not play in the vikings first two at least the vikings first two regular season games okay so the earliest he would return is week three um something’s up here so something’s up is so you have a prediction from like months ago that anthony barr will never play again for the vikings before the before they decided not to trade it yeah that’s still alive like if like if if this turns into a neil hunter situation where he needs like season ending surgery then you will have cash i thought that came off the board interesting yeah no it’s worse i mean he has to play the game he has to play i’m gonna go with at least at least the first two games okay write that down all right declan ma my first prediction i will say jake browning will be cut when rosters are trimmed to 53. i don’t think jake bryan’s gonna make this team it was admirable and i think i even have another jake browning like could start week one prediction or something i got one but uh i’m just going to say jake brown is going to get cut when rosses are trimmed to 53. zimmer loves his leadership but i don’t can he be on the practice squad and what’s the what are the current projects rules i think he can be yeah uh i think you can be at least three years now oh wow on a practice squad so so they could bring i don’t know if he’s going to get claimed on a 53. so he’ll probably probably pass through waivers and sneak him back on the squad i think mikey loved the fact that he could use jake browning as a sword against kirk more than he really appreciated what jake browning did which is fine for like the second week in training camp if you’re trying to prove a point but when it comes down to who’s coming in the actual game if your quarterback gets hurt yeah you got to get someone else um not that there’s a bunch of options okay write this down write that down so for people panicking about the vikings offense write this down the vikings will score at least a touchdown well i’ll just phrase it this way the vikings will score a touchdown on a 30-yard pass or longer in the final preseason game look at you going back to the preseason well man yep i’m not dude there’s plenty of meat on that bone still oh yeah right there’s plenty of regular season predictions that we’ve already made tell us off the record who’s going to catch it um kj osborne okay i think kj asmr i almost said zylstra because i still feel like there’s hope for a three touchdown zeal street game to vote for himself and mr mankato he actually caught a private one-yard touchdown pass on the scrimmage from browning yesterday and it was not a well thrown ball but it was a hell of a catch when do we uh officially crown mr mankind by the way again um essentially after the third preseason game like we’ll have all the information and then we can kind of sift through we’ll need we’ll need jud i don’t there’s anyone else you can collaborate with out there that doesn’t hate score north um that’s right i’ll just collaborate with myself it’s good enough for me these days me and my can of surly will sit down one night uh all right we’re back to uh josh here your second prediction all right so i’m gonna stick with the vikings but skip in the preseason and uh going off of just uh the same kind of strange vibe that this whole preseason and training camp has brought i’m gonna say through the first four games of the viking season they are going to start one and three yeah you got off that bandwagon at the last exit didn’t you yeah there’s definitely some weird i mean i’m near juju i’ve never been a kirk cousins supporter but he’s going to have that stretch you know but just with the way the whole line is shaping up right now it just kind of seems like they’re going to have that same struggle early on and then maybe they’ll turn it on and rattle off some wins so we’re going to struggle out the gate it’s a longer season than it was before they ran at a time last year but now there’s an extra game write it down you like writing things down see that’s right all right back to judd your second prediction all right sort of play enough what declan said but in a different way the vikings will enter the season the regular season with a backup quarterback not named jake browning or kellan monde now kellen monde just to be clear is in my opinion going to make the roster as the third quarterback but he’s not going to be the backup that’s off the record that’s that’s but no just don’t use don’t use it against me that i’m saying backup quarterback i’m not saying the third guy so what i’m saying they’re going to do is they’re going to get a veteran guy that can back up kirk cousins and it’s not going to be browning and then monde will be the third guy so the backup the backup the number two quarterback will not be jake browning or kellen munn so if you do get your wish that you’ve been for like the last two weeks you’ve you’ve been on this right if you do get your wish how are you gonna celebrate the vikings bringing in a backup quarterback with veteran experience judd um boy what would i do hold on a second i got to think about this you caught me off guard oh you know what i got it i’m going to go to minnesota’s favorite ipa in fact i’m going to go to my fridge and pull out minnesota’s favorite ipa surly now i’m going to pull out a furious but folks i’ve got if you can see this here i bought this last weekend that’s right these are just four of the choices now it’s the sonic one there’s the furious but let’s just say i’ve sampled all of these and they are all fantastic because when you’re talking surly you’re talking happiness you know what for the first time for the first time surly means happy just like for the first time in my life i’m happy as declan said as declan said on twitter last weekend i’ve never seen judd this happy and he’s exactly right because last night i’m watching the twins game and i’m like this game sucks but you know what i’m happy because i got surly furious right in front of me and that’s all because as they say it’s early you do enough settling in life so crack open to certainly furious enjoy the ipa that revolutionize minnesota craft beer don’t settle yet surly and come on get happy and also before declan chimes writing things down second prediction so uh the the minnesota lottery wants you guys to know about these vikings scratch games there’s a five dollar game that can win you up to a hundred thousand dollars and there’s a two dollar game that can win you up to fifteen thousand dollars even if you don’t win there’s great second chance prizes like vikings tickets and merchandise so be sure to check out and play the vikings scratch games from minnesota lottery say i’m in to viking scratch games must be 18 or older to play dex what’s your second prediction write it down you like writing things down uh a offensive line prediction from me rashad hill will start week one at left tackle but not week two okay so rashad hill will start week one at left tackle but he will not start week two okay it’s gonna be a one and done scenario or possibly an injury but most likely the first part and that so that could either be like daryson is ready for week two or hill was so bad in week one that they just need another emergency option i guess correct write this down i can’t believe nobody has pulled the trigger on this one yet so i guess i will write this down dakota dozier will not make the vikings 53-man roster for week one dakota dozier will not make the vikings 53-man roster for week one surprise like uh when they resigned him none of us made that prediction like well do you what he got resigned like in early summer late spring or something i’m surprised maybe one of us didn’t make that either well i think we all assumed oh they must really love him more than he thought and they did they literally had him as a starting guard for the first chunk of preseason and now it looks like he’s fallen to like the third spot which is which makes sense and honestly that’s sort of the evolution of how training camp was probably supposed to play out you know holy udo inexperienced wyatt davis rookie coming into the league for the first time and like let those guys climb their way up the ladder and right davis scoring very well pff loves them they do they do all right uh josh your third and final prediction all right so i gotta give credit for this one because it’s my buddy alex that wants me to put this out there he’s got a big bet in vegas for this one so just you know trying to will it to happen and this goes completely against my first two predictions so write this down the vikings will win the super bowl and justin jefferson will be named mvp wait of the leaguer of the super bowl of the super bowl okay wow dude so we just went from a couple vikings train wreck predictions i love the hedge here i love the hedge so what’s his bet that’s exactly what his bet is the the justin jefferson and how much did he put down what what financial i think it’s a 100 bet and i think it pays out like somewhere in five figures yeah i hope so i feel like with with josh here and then with uh was it it was craig on mackie and judd write that down today like the first part of the parlay is enough for a touchdown pass on its own and then you guys keep adding things that make it even harder so like if the vikings win the super bowl and kirk cousins wins the mvp we literally have to buzz you on the next show because it’s incorrect but that’s right i love it that’s your 99 yard touchdown right there thanks bernard barry so josh great work since you’ve got this platform again now for the third time is there anyone else in your life you’d like to thank that brought you to write that down absolutely this time i would just like to thank my uh life for putting putty on sundays because she has to deal with football all day long and then not only that she also has to deal with me listening to vikings vent line as i’m wandering around the house after the game so thank you for letting me do that and then i’ll just apologize in advance to my uh son he’s only two years old but unfortunately he probably is going to be a vikings fan so just sorry ahead of time buddy uh you’ll uh we’ll go down together how do the doctors determine that like you go to a checkup like the one year checkup and the doctor’s got the stethoscope and he’s checking like for the vitals and he turns he takes the stethoscope off and he turns to the parents josh and his lovely family and says i’ve got some bad news your kid’s a vikings fan oh god oh i feel bad for mom then though because now now there’s going to be two of you that she has to listen to roam around the house trying to figure out how the hell the vikings just lost yeah maybe in a few years and pick a new team or something amazing yeah the packers will throw them out that’s josh and his masochistic family we’ll get you we’ll get you on again man and we’re looking forward to tracking your predictions we’ll see you josh absolutely thanks guys all right guess write this down listener predictor judd back to you your third prediction zach wilson will be named the nfl ap offensive rookie of the year jack wilson with that train wreck of a teammate collection yeah i know but i i think this kid’s got it i think this kid’s got it and trevor lawrence i still think he’s gonna be absolutely fine but i actually think jacksonville is going to be a bigger mess jacksonville feels very messy i’m not very urban meyer thing i’m not a huge fan there like i i’m not a big nick saban urban meyer i’ll just go from being a controlling college coach and i’m really good at that to the national football league i think that’s uh i think that’s got a lot of peril to it the tebow thing was weird right yes she’s like like what do you guys do urban meyer it’s weird too i mean this guy claims i think to have left both of his past two jobs because of like health concerns and stuff and now you’re gonna take over a bad nfl team yeah yeah it’s uh write this down it’s a train wreck franchise it’s a train wreck franchise all right declan your final prediction all right this one’s very strange and i meant to make it a couple weeks ago but then got jan pack with other predictions so there was a note in falcons training camp that laquan treadwell was having a hell of a camp like his t his coaches were praising him sounds like he’s turning some heads best shape of his life best shape his life running up and down those stairs right so i’m gonna say this laquan treadwell will set career highs in yards receptions and touchdowns this year careful don’t bang your head on that low bar you’re setting there no no no not at all but he will set career highs which would be 36 receptions two touchdowns and 303 yards for him to have all that come true wow so he caught 35 passes for 300 yards in 2018. i’m actually sure a surprise i didn’t think he had that much production and a touchdown that year right yep one yes i think in green bay um careful dex because the last time i looked at a falcon’s depth chart uh willie beavers was a starting offensive tackle oh yeah no they’re they’re diet falcons there or diet vikings excuse me there i i’m well aware of that diet vikings yeah no that’s but maddie ice maddie’s going to make nick laquan troubles i feel i feel like he’s that super bowl opportunity was probably a last golden chance where he was a with a damn good quarterback i don’t know that maddie dude how terrible would that feel like it wasn’t even really his fault like they took a lead and then the patriots just marched in the second half yeah god you would probably think about that all the time write this down especially now when you look around and like julio jones is gone and what’s worse the decision by the seahawks to try and have rus throw the pass that got picked at the end against the patriots when when they were on the goal line or the falcons meltdown the falcons make you feel worse the falcons the falcons meltdown okay yeah the seahawks thing was a bang bang game it was back and forth you know it just yeah obviously you’d feel terrible about that too because you were one yard away right but like the falcons literally had like a three and a half touchdown lead yes they did in the second half yeah the seahawks also won the super bowl the year before too so like you’ve kind of yeah feel a little bit better about that where the falcons are the falcons would you guys rather blow a three and a half touchdown lead like if you’re following the vikings here have them blow like they make it to the super bowl but they blow a three and a half touchdown lead yep or just not make it to the super bowl at all i’d rather i’d rather not go and have it happen in the nfc title game then have that happen in the second half of a super bowl i’d rather go because i’d rather go one i want to see them where i am actually able to process it which at the tender age of seven i couldn’t i want to see them in that game i want to see the two-week period in this town and plus if the vikings blew that type of lead it would be just another in the glorious chapters of things that they have completely melted down it’s kind of it is kind of the identity it’s like 60 years of vikings fandom i don’t know what we would all do if all of a sudden they went on like a patriots well that’s yeah that’s aggressive let’s say they went on even like a you know like a cowboys run in the 90s where they win like three championships in four or five years and it’s kind of a mini dynasty which literally sounds laughable to say about the vikings because we we mentally can’t compute what that would feel like correct but i i think it would change the personality of the twin cities i legit do like there’s a there’s 30 years of of fans and a generation and a half or more of people that like our sports identity is woe is me sort of insecure if that happened if the vikings went on a run of great success you’d have a lot less people being upset about people like us who want to set expectations like the expectations then would naturally shoot up because people would say oh we’ve done it now we should be able to do it i i feel like there is a group of fans who are very offensive of hey we always lose we know it we just love our team i think if you win a super bowl or let’s say you win two that completely changes where it’s okay then to set the bar and the expectations high where now there are at least some trying to dumb that down not our listeners or viewers but some yeah uh is it is it not me to make one more dex did you did you okay all right write this down the vikings week one 53-man roster will include at least two players who aren’t currently on the roster like what you’re doing and i don’t know if it’s not i think it’s off the record i think it’s probably an offensive lineman i think it’s a quarterback and maybe an offensive lineman i think they’re set defensive line cornerback you know i guess i can see it could be a linebacker and it could be also a backup safety could be a kicker colts just cut a kicker yeah greg joseph yesterday we could talk about that in a second actually let’s let’s get into that let’s write that down your weekly predictions here i’ll take this off the screen for you and um we do it every wednesday we hold each other accountable we’re the only show in america that puts our reputations on the line mackie that’s right when are you going to admit that you were wrong when is that when’s that guy in the left gonna my name is judd i wouldn’t leave the house i’d just stay home and drink sterling all the time well you found out all right boys let’s get to judd’s camp notes here you have been observing you’ve been taking in vikings training camp for the last several weeks and you’re out there again yesterday so let’s just go through the list of things that stand out to you from the last day or two well since we uh since we brought his name up let’s first talk about greg joseph and what made and yes this is going to be incredibly football geeky i fully admit in fact play the sounder the football sounder please phil um football solo the vikings scrimmaged yesterday this was what zimmer had threatened to do this after the first preseason game and they didn’t but they did yesterday so ones against the ones twos against the twos and then and then a combination of sort of twos and threes uh going against each other it was purple it was purple jersey against the whites it was actually intriguing to watch at times but let’s start with greg joseph so greg joseph in game so far field goal wise in the two preseason games in in what he’s gotten an opportunity for field goals and extra points has been fine he’s been good but yesterday he was on a wet field but i mean at times you could have a wet field he was seven of 11 on field goal attempts now he did miss one from 55 and he missed one from 59 so those are big asks yeah but but seven of them but seven of eleven at least has to make you think because it’s not like the the field conditions when you go on the road are going to be perfect i mean the bears they’ve got a bad field yeah packers yeah you’re closer that game’s in december and it can be a wet or snowy field so i’m not saying to sound the proverbial alarm right to your right phil mackey but i am saying seven of 11 at least gives you cause for a little bit of pause about the confidence that i probably felt walking out of u.s bank stadium on saturday night okay i don’t know how many uh special teams press conferences you’ve had the chance to take in but like do you have any feel for how confident the vikings are or aren’t in greg joseph i don’t i really don’t it kind of feels like it’s just he’s just and no one’s really talking about him everyone’s just kind of hoping and praying and we also sort of know how this whole song and dance goes with mike like in mike’s world if you’re if you’re if you’re a field goal kicker you are essentially in some ways like a quarterback to him which is a necessary evil on the roster and if you do your job you’re just sort of left alone and if you don’t he freaks out so like i guess my question is after a day like that i’m i’m more curious how mike zimmer feels than the special teams coordinator because that’s where i sometimes feel the snowball starts to go down the hill of oh boy that wasn’t good has anyone has anyone i mean there’s so many things to ask mike zimmer you know there’s just so many roster things right now but like has anyone in preseason asked mike zimmer how do you feel about greg joseph or has it mostly just been avoided in his press conferences mostly avoided he has i think he’s been asked about him but the other thing is he’s never like unless joseph it would be interesting today to have had and he is going to talk this morning but i can’t go it would have been interesting today to ask him how he felt about his performance yesterday because like i feel like if you just ask uh hey mike how do you feel about greg joseph on a thursday he’s going to be like oh yeah you know he’s come in and he’s got a job to do and he’s doing it but 7 of 11 i’d be curious to know how he processed the that one well the so the the kick i he missed a 51-yarder if i’m not mistaken in that second preseason game right against the colts yes yes kind of drifted kind of actually kind of kind of kind of faded started kind of down the middle and kind of faded to the right he’s got a little bit of a slice and i would recommend stopping into pxg minneapolis to fix that slice all right they say that kickers are like golfers in shoulder pads and so if greg joseph wants to straighten things out with his golf game pxg has these new gen 4 golf clubs drivers fairways hybrids irons these are pxg’s flagship clubs hands down you can check it out again it’s a golfer’s paradise everyone’s raving about pxg minneapolis stop in southdale center or just peruse on their website pxg.com minneapolis all right what’s next on your camp notes list okay um i’m gonna go from what could be perceived as a negative to a positive because this to me is is probably if there’s like a storyline coming from camp of something that seems to be going well it’s this one yesterday in the ones versus the ones i probably can’t tell you accurately just because it’s hard to describe how dominant denial hunter continues to look and like my concerns about the neck are now i’d like to see him play a real game first before i say it’s absolutely fine but i think it was charted as three potential sacks now you of course can’t hit the quarterback in scrimmages but three potential sacks um he’s at both ends so if you’re saying well but judd come on rashad hill’s playing left tackle i could beat rashad hill he’s also going against brian o’neill the right tackle at times yeah and brian o’neill’s a good tackle uh denial hunter right now and throughout camp to me has looked fantastic he’s a specimen um he doesn’t look like he’s lost a step um he looks he looks comfortable playing like that there doesn’t seem to be problems this one to me is a huge positive storyline coming from camp that really is about the like the best possible news you could if there’s all the different story lines and different position battles like at the beginning of camp if you’re saying what’s the number one most important thing you’d say that after a month month and a half of camp daniel hunter is ready to rock and if it if it looks like he’s ready to rock then everything kind of starts to fall in place defensively i mean they were one of the worst pass rushing teams in the league think about a mike zimmer defense and zimmer defenses aren’t necessarily known for like gaudy sack and interception totals pressures but they get pressure yes and it’s very systematic and it but it but it all is predicated on getting that pressure and with the neil hunter out last year they they weren’t able to get pressure and then the back end fell apart and everything just crumbled from there so it really is the most important thing for this defense if they’re going to do anything like they’ve done before last season he’s he’s got to be healthy and playing basically every game so that that is pretty good news pretty good news he’s not going to play in this third preseason game though no i don’t know but i mean he looks fantastic um the next one much like a presidential race i am going to call a position battle the ballots are in a position are you wearing this county here we’re going to have 70 in here what’s happened right here is that we’ve had an uh they have a big search charge of this and then an old ramsey county it’s over here it’s like a position battle is over it’s well fought actually not really well fought but sort of well fought first team right defensive end dj wanham second team stephen weatherly everson griffin did get into the scrimmage at times purely third down pass rush guy yeah i like it dj wanham is your weak one unless he gets hurt or unless something weird happens and they go acquire somebody which i don’t think they will do now that they’ve signed ev dj wanham has won the starting right end position interesting weatherly who i think you know he entered camp with a good chance to compete compete for it is with the twos and here’s how certain i am in calling this race they they had what percentage of precincts are reporting here uh ninety-eight percent wanna wanna was with the first teamers in purple jersey in a purple jersey weatherly was with the second teamers in a white jersey so they couldn’t mix and match them like that was that’s it dj want him starting right end now let me give you a little bit more on him as well because this to me is an indication of what’s of the fact that they’ve been impressed with him and like him um there was when everest griffin was on the field so it was i believe it was a late game two minute drill where it was going to be all passes griffin at right end daniel hunter at left end dalvin tomlinson not surprising at the three tech or actually you know what he’d be more nose tackle there because dj wanham was the other guy inside yeah zimmer did that he used to do that with brian robison the last few years of robinson’s career he would be robison inside and that was that was when hunter was a backup rotation guy and they would put hunter and griffin on the edges and then move brian robison to the inside i like it i think it’s a good strategy so wanham for context last year uh he definitely played more snaps than they had planned because the neil hunter was out and he had the second most total pressures of any edge rusher on the team odenabo led the team with 42 juanam had 22 pressures it wasn’t a great pressure rate and pff didn’t love him last year but this was really the first real taste of nfl football that he was getting on a regular basis and coaches seemed to love him and he had a couple nice little games where he flashed and uh and tallied sacks so i don’t think he’s necessarily going to be like a pro bowl caliber player but if he can just be what ray edwards was 10 years ago just be just be a guy that take advantage of some opportunities while hunter yes yep and uh and make sure that you’re make sure that you’re not missing tackles on the edge too so i’m good with this all right whether lee is not a weatherly should be a backup he should be a rotation guy absolutely so absolutely so it so truthfully it’s probably depth chart rights it’s probably quantum starts griffin pass rush specialist situational guy weatherly a depth guy but that’s him that’s fine like he can contribute there when when you ask stephen weatherly to start you’re asking too much it’s that simple yep uh give us give us one more all right because we got we can we got stuff we got to get to stuff tomorrow too so give us give us one more all right so kirk cousins uh kirk cousins threw an early touchdown the only touchdown the first team scored once against the ones i think was their first drive uh two yard touchdown to justin jefferson who again was in the red non-contact jersey but looked good uh cousins actually looked i thought pretty solid the story of the day was probably quarterback wise kellen monde was awful like helen this is the worst practice or game i’ve seen him uh he had a pass picked by chad zurat that was tipped um he had armin watts strip him of the ball in which he brought the ball down in his hand and didn’t protect it it was stripped and returned for a touchdown by watts he had another ball almost picked by surat but he just missed it and then i think on the fourth drive that he orchestrated they ended up with a field goal attempt but the point was this was as shaky and as bad as i’ve seen mon and just continues to solidify that this guy needs to learn i’m not panicked i’m not saying that he’s a bust there are some people who are probably there i’m not even close to it but i mean this is just the process that a third round quarterback who you took a flyer on took a chance on is going to go through i feel like i didn’t get that update from the vikings entertainment network uh crew i feel like i feel like they skipped over that part actually some of them said he had a great day i thought it was a little fishy when they when they spliced together some footage of kell and mon dropping back in practice ball goes in the air and then they cut to like it looked like like a culpepper to moss touchdown reception on the back half of the tape i wasn’t speaking of before we go i gotta tell you probably the one of the funniest one of my top three funny stories in my entire time on the vikings beat happened yesterday oh god okay so the vikings were on what would qualify as either field one or three i think but it was on the far side of tco where during the course of training camp fans who are now gone could watch from like tents and there’s one tent that that was like a fan tent and then there’s and that’s been taken down there’s a vip tent too like a big and i think it gets broken down but it’s gonna take some work so the assembled media is on the grass and walked on a hill to get there i decided you know i’m 51 i’m going to go up the stairs and and go in the back way basically so i can walk on a road to get to the place to watch practice yeah but because of that i was coming in from a different spot than the rest of my brethren in the media yeah so as i am approaching where i’m going to watch you’ve always been known to walk the road less traveled yeah yeah i’m i’m danny green check vagina on the high road judd’s on the high road it’s just up here so as i’m approaching my perch to watch practice from an unnamed member of the ve n crew starts approaching me now i’ve never really met this guy but i’ve seen him a ton and he’s seen me a ton and you know phil it’s just one of those sort of unspoken like we’re not friends or something but i’ve seen you you’ve seen me and so he’s like coming towards me and i’m like oh i don’t know if he’s going to say something to me or he or he might just be going to a different perch it’s fine literally and i’ve got my badge on too judd’s olga tier 2 access or something and he comes at me and he says are you guys tearing this tent down too today or not you guys and i was like what he goes yeah are you taking this tent down and i’m like i have no idea and i realized he thought like i was the foreman on the project of the teardown at tco so he has thought the entire training camp that you’re like you’re like you’re like on the maintenance that’s crew right he’s like are you tearing now number one it’s hysterical on its face but number two have you ever looked at me and thought yeah you know what judd oh that guy knows his way around if if somebody were to have said in that moment oh sorry but like we do need you to help take down this tent would you have been able to help participate in the taking down of that vip exactly i could barely work a screwdriver [Laughter] so this guy’s been walking by you like two weeks ago whatever like every time he sees you he doesn’t think that’s that’s judd zulgat from purple daily or that’s judd zilgad former lead star to be vikings beat writer and insider he’s thinking that guy is here to help take tents down yes and put cones in places oh my god he’s the guy but i mean what makes it so great is i am the last person i would look at and be like there’s a hearty man’s man he’ll be taking tents down amazing well uh i would recommend if you run a business uh don’t hire judd to be your maintenance man but do hire and work with federated to provide risk management resources and just trustworthy people that have been around for a long time so this company has been around for over 100 years based in oatana helping business owners they’ve got all the knowledge all the expertise and they can apply it to your business and help you sleep better at night as a business owner federatedinsurance.com and remember at federated it’s our business to protect yours in fact i think it’s very risky if you let judd attempt to do these look like the hands of a man who’s ever done anything that requires like smarts when it comes to deconstructing or constructing those are the hands of a man that tells his wife to use the chainsaw in the backyard i don’t i don’t start the grill that’s that’s i’m not a handyman but i can i definitely know my way around a grill in a propane tank so oh my gosh famous last words all right that’s a wrap on today’s episode of purple daily daily vikings entertainment we appreciate you guys hanging out with us whenever you discovered us whether it was at the beginning of training camp or whether it was the old mackie and judd radio show it’s been a blast and uh we’ll uh we’ll be back tomorrow with some more marconi finalist content for you that’s right you
