Stefon Diggs a #1 receiver

Recently in the Vikings Territory writers room, the topic of Stefon Diggs came up, and to my surprise, a healthy chunk of the staff was not sold on him as a legitimate #1 wide receiver. Pardon? The hands, the speed, the razor sharp route running? The ability to chase down blatant overthrows? I’m firmly of the opinion that Diggs has everything you want in a #1 wideout, so the only option here was to throw the challenge flag and dust off the ol’ coin toss.

Adam explained how the coin toss works in this post from a few weeks ago, but basically it’s an argument between two VT writers. Simple enough. The prolific Austin Belisle volunteered to be the voice of the dissenters, and argue Diggs is NOT a #1 receiver. Here we go!

The third quarter, thus far, has pretty much been dominated by Seattle’s patient and steady offensive effort.

Marshawn Lynch and Golden Tate helped quarterback Russell Wilson plod down the field in organized fashion, as did a pair of offsides penalties against Brian Robison and Everson Griffen.  A three yard touchdown from Marshawn Lynch capped the impressive drive.

With four minutes left in the third quarter, the Vikings now trail by 10 points, and may have to rely on (gulp) the arm of Christian Ponder to get them back into this one.

On second thought, just keep running it, please.
