Week 7 Game Recap -Vikings vs. Bills: The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

All week long I spent time preparing to write a preview for yesterday's game. Sadly, I could not close the deal as I used my time poorly throughout.

'What a waste!' I thought to myself.

Thankfully, I was wrong. Those same notes became my guide when reviewing the game.

Are You Not Entertained?!

Posted by Cm1 in Horns Earned, 19 October 2014 · 54 views

Whew! That was a heck of a ball game.

That final drive kicked my heart up and down the field.. Dropped pass, catch, big plays on both sides. It felt like the Bills had it in them, but equally like a turnover would end it. Despite the loss, that was the most enjoyable Vikings game of the season.

It makes a lot of sense! Career days for Blanton and Barr,...

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....

Top 5 Viking Defensive Tackles of All Time

Posted by Randy_M in Randy_M's Blog, 12 October 2014 · 167 views

Top 5 Viking Defensive Tackles of All Time This time we are going to take a look at the top 5 Viking defensive tackles of all time. While researching for this list, I felt that it may have the most depth of any of the lists I have compiled so far. It was a tough decision on who would make the top five and who would be left off the list. This is also one position in which traditional statistics do...

NFL Security, Keith Millard and the Minnesota Vikings

Posted by Parker Hageman in Hot Vikes Takes, 07 October 2014 · 618 views

NFL Security, Keith Millard and the Minnesota Vikings Over at Vice.com , Jack Moore has an excellent article on the “extralegal clusterfuck” that the NFL has created with their security force.

The Minnesota Vikings had gone through a stretch in the late 1980s through the mid-1990s in which they could be considered the “most out-of-control team in the NFL ”. Prompted by the need to clean up the team’s publi...

Great QBs Make Everyone Better

It does make a difference who plays quarterback. Thursday night was a prime example.

I have no clue as to why Rick Spielman ever thought Christian Ponder was valued appropriately as the number 12 pick in the 2011 draft. And I don’t think anyone else does either. Okay, enough of that – we have heard it all too often.

If there is one thing the quarterback...

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 · 259 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?

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?
