Progress Packed

Posted by Cm1 in Horns Earned, 23 November 2014 · 26 views

A heck of a show.. Maybe you don't value defensive prowess, old school black and blue running. Today was this team at its best. It could have won this game with a nudge of luck, but by every measure of where this team is, we got to see it fire on all cylinders. Sharriff was out, Asiata was as well. Certainly not everything was perfect, but that is the rea...

What's in store for the Vikings?

Posted by Holden Mitchell in Holden's Vikings Blog, 09 November 2014 · 558 views

First off, my name is Holden Mitchell. I am 15 years old, and this is my first blog article. I’m an enormous Vikings fan, and I’m pursuing my passion of writing about sports. The Minnesota Vikings currently have a 4-5 record and are third in the NFC North Division. Week 10 was their bye week, so now is a great time to see what is in store for the Vikings....

GO FOR IT!!!

Posted by Intl Correspondent Adam in Hot Vikes Takes, 06 November 2014 · 408 views

GO FOR IT!!! Last weekend we saw what many football fans would love to see more often.

The Vikings win was nice, but the TWO 2-point conversions had “GO FOR IT” advocates overjoyed.

In the fourth quarter, Washington scored a touchdown putting the visitors up by 5 points. Washington went for the 2-point conversion in hopes of gaining a more comfortable 7-point lead,...

Mastering McCoy

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are currently the NFL's worst defense in far too many important categories. While there are many contributing factors to this, one is not them lacking a star player. In defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, they have one of the game's elite.

The accolades have quickly piled up for the fifth year pro. He earned first team All-Pro honors...

Rush to Judgment

Posted by ForPete'sSake in ForPete'sSake Blog, 26 October 2014 · 196 views

Teddy needs time.

That's not only true when he drops back, but also for those rushing to judgment on his progress.

I wrote before that he is not playing with a full deck when it comes to playmakers. Even Patterson, although a tremendous talent, he is a wide receiver and needs to act as one. Will his progress mirror that of Dez Bryant or Demaryius Thom...

Vikings' Offensive Line Holding Back Bridgewater, McKinnon

Vikings' Offensive Line Holding Back Bridgewater, McKinnon The Vikings’ defense played admirably despite a last-second, game-winning touchdown pass from Kyle Orton, Sunday. They forced four turnovers, and the Vikings offense could only muster 16 points in the loss. Patrick Reusse of 1500 ESPN and the Star Tribune has been pretty clear that rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is to blame for the anemic offense....

What to do about Adrian Peterson's mess?

This Adrian Peterson situation is an absolute disaster. After being charged with essentially child abuse (whatever the official legal jargon actually is escapes me right now) on Friday, it's been a whirlwind of sadness, confusion, and people on twitter advertising their idiocy in broad dayli...

Will Adrian Peterson Take The Ball and Run With It or Fumle It Away?

Will Adrian Peterson Take The Ball and Run With It or Fumle It Away? I won't forget where I was when I heard the Adrian Peterson news. I had just returned home from the hospital with our second child. I was laying with our other child explaining to him what it is like to have another kid in the house. A beep came across my phone and it read "you need to check out this AP news." I jumped on twitter and sure enough the Adria...

Fun With Numbers

Posted by Jeff in Vikings A (Adrian) To Z (Zimmer) Blog, 09 September 2014 · 313 views

Fun With Numbers In the 53 seasons of the Minnesota Vikings we have seen many great players come and go. Some of these players have gone on for enshrinement in Canton, while others have at least been inducted in to the Vikings Ring of Honor. There is one other way of being honored for heroics on the field and that is by having your jersey number retired.

Currently there...

2014 Minnesota Vikings Roster Analysis
By: Dylon Ackerman

QB Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater, and Christian Ponder
There were no surprises here. Matt Cassel was named the starter, not only because he played well during the preseason, but because he can carry the Vikings through a tough season start. The Vikings face a tough St. Louis Rams,...

Has Ponder checked out?

Posted by Vikeologist in 1st and SKOL , 23 August 2014 · 384 views

We all know the writing is on the wall for Christian Ponder. He is 3rd on the depth chart and didn't get a snap in the 2nd pre-season game against the Cardinals, and probably won't see any action tonight in Kansas City.

While watching the game last Saturday, the cameras showed Cassel and Bridgewater working together, but where was Christian Ponder?
