  1. Too bad about Kylin Hill – he looked like a great prospect, but damaged his knee on a kickoff return last season.

  2. I actually like this guy but for some reason the coaches dont. He is like 6’3 and a power runner but the again have a Gutt pick in Dillion so this guy doesnt get to play, he wasnt a Gutt pick. Sounds like the repub party

  3. Cudos to the vikes. Delvin Cook their go to running back sits the first half and they pound it with another back who is doing well. They put Cook in in the second half and first run 81 yards for a td.
    Fooled you once
