Fire Norv Turner

Minnesota Vikings Talk Today, 08:12 PM
Seriously, what a terrible game plan, the turnovers certainly didn't help, but good lord Turner and his play calling were just awful.

Are the Vikings Trading for an Offensive Lineman?

As I do on the days that we host our Podcast, I have been perusing www.reddit.com/r/minnesotavikings, my home away from home, and saw this vague Twitter post from fellow VikingsJournal.com writer AJ Mansour...


Gordy's Game Guesses: Recapping Week 7

Well, this was yet another surprising week in the NFL. While there were definitely some secure picks, such as Green Bay over Chicago on Thursday Night or New England at Pittsburgh Sunday afternoon, there were a lot of surprises, including Atlanta’s second consecutive loss and Miami’s second win in a row.


Rival Recaps - Week Seven NFC North Wrap-Up

The perfect season finally came to an end for the Vikings, but they still sit atop the NFC North at 5-1. However, the Packers are gaining ground following a victory over Chicago, and the Lions are surging.


VIKINGS VERSUS: Tracking The Minnesota Defense With NFL History (WEEK 7)

It wasn’t the prettiest of efforts for the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday in Philadelphia, but at the end of the day the team is still 5-1 on the season. That said, there’s a lot that we need to talk about; the offensive line, the quarterback play, the coaching staff, the criticism can span pretty wide across the team.


No Excuses--Zimmer Says the Line Must Get Better

In the past few weeks there have been a lot of talk about the Vikings coasting though the rest of the season—perhaps the Packers in Green bay remaining the only speed bump on the schedule. Well, the Vikings team ran into an obstacle on its road to the Super Bowl, and it’s the offensive line and it is suddenly more than just a speed bump.


Vikings Cough up Perfect Season in Loss to Eagles

A lot was lost Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia: the game (the Eagles beat the Vikings 21-10), the perfect season (inevitable) and the optimism surrounding this team. The Vikings came out of the bye week sluggish and ineffective, and the Eagles, riding a two-game losing streak, were waiting for them and cleaned their clocks.


Vikings at Eagles Official Game Thread

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The Vikings are 5-0! Oh, you have already read all about it. So, well, then next they get a chance to become 6-0, as they take on Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field—and you get a chance to comment on it right here. Join in.


Bradford vs. Wentz: And Other Keys to the Vikings/Eagles Game

On this week's edition of the Purple Journal Podcast I was thoroughly mocked by our co-hosts in Joe Oberle (of VikingsJournal.com fame), Luke Braun (of purplePTSD obscurity) and our guest Adam Patrick (from VikingsTerritory.com and the Donut Club Podcast) for my prediction of this weekend's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.


Big V Will Cause Big Problems For Philadelphia Against The Vikings

The Eagles have one of the best RTs in the NFL in Lane Johnson. Unfortunately for them, he is currently serving a ten-game suspension because he tested positive for PEDs for the second time. In his place, the Eagles are starting rookie 5th Rounder Halapoulivaati Vaitai.


Why Passing on Marcus Peters in the 2015 Draft Was the Correct Decision

Much has been made of Marcus Peters' sensational performance since entering the league in 2015, and, at least locally, even more has been made of the disparity in output between Peters - whom the Vikings had the opportunity to draft with the 11th pick in the 2015 draft - and Trae Waynes, the player the Vikings selected instead.


Vikings at Eagles Game Preview

The 5-0 Vikings return from their bye week and travel to Philadelphia to take on the 3-2 Eagles, but according to Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer, the records don’t mean anything. He says his team is 0-0 and starts the season anew. Don’t look for the Sam Bradford angle from Zimmer either, he says it’s Minnesota vs. Philly.
