Post Anthony Barr among 2018’s most disappointing players so far
In the early portion of the 2018 NFL season Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey , whenever something has gone wrong for the Minnesota Vikings, it seems as though linebacker Anthony Barr is connected to it in some way. Whether it’s through any fault of his own or not. . .such as being stuck in coverage against a wide receiver, for example. . .it just seems like we haven’t been getting the Anthony Barr we’ve become accustomed to throughout much of his NFL career.Bill Barnwell of ESPN has taken notice of this, and in his column recapping the first quarter of the 2018 NFL season named Barr as his “Most Disappointing Player.” Here’s what Barnwell had to say about #55:I’m not going to speculate on why Barr hasn’t had the rough start he has in 2018 thus far, and as both Barnwell and I stated here, not everything bad that has happened to him so far this year has been his fault. I don’t know if Barr’s lack of impact. . .positive impact, in any case. . .is connected to his contract or anything like that Youth Riley Reiff Jersey , or if this is simply a matter of how he’s being used.After all, we heard this offseason that the Vikings wanted to use Barr more frequently as an edge rusher. I’m not sure if I’ve just missed it or whatever the case might be, but I don’t know if I’ve actually seen Barr line up with his hand in the dirt at any point this season. You would think that in the absence of Everson Griffen that the Vikings might be doing more things along those lines to generate more pass rush, but as I said. . .unless I’ve just flat out missed it, I haven’t seen anything like that so far this year.If the Vikings are going to turn around their defensive slide from the first quarter of this season, getting Barr back to making positive plays in both the run and the pass game would be a pretty solid start. Hopefully we’ll see some of that going forward, starting this Sunday in Philadelphia.Mid-week rant: Minnesota Vikings It’s already been four days since the Vikings had its first preseason game and it already feels like it has been two weeks. On the bright side Riley Reiff Jersey , in another two weeks, I mean three days, Minnesota will face Jacksonville. So far there has only been one transaction and that was putting Nick Easton on the injured reserve and adding some depth to the offensive line by signing Kaleb Johnson.By no means will Johnson be a starter considering he has never played in a regular-season NFL game. He’s been in the league since 2015 and was recently waived by the Chicago Bears.I think it’s a decent depth signing just in case someone else goes down. At this point you might as well try and grab whoever you can. It’s also a possibility that when others begin to get cut from other teams, then we’ll see other linemen come in and out of the organization. The front office and coaching staff both know this will be a big year and they won’t let a shaky offensive line get in the way of a potential title run... At least one would hope, right?As the week moves forward the hype is building to see Dalvin Cook hopefully get some action on Saturday. What’s even more exciting is seeing the two healthy workhorses in Latavius Murray and Cook and seeing what the two are capable of accomplishing this season. After seeing the amazing pass between Kirk Cousins and Stefon Diggs last weekend sealed the deal in me being all in on this season. The chemistry that those two will have this season will be like peanut butter and jelly. I can’t get over the giddiness I have for the season. Can it just be week one against San Francisco, yet?
