How important is the RB position?

Posted by ForPete'sSake in ForPete'sSake Blog, 19 January 2015 · 244 views

How important is the RB position? If you are a fan of football, it’s probably a pretty good bet you watched the AFC/NFC Championship games this past Sunday. And while watching, you witnessed two of the best “in your face/smash mouth” running backs in the game today – Marshawn Lynch and LaGarrette Blount. Both age 28. Blount about 250 pounds and Lynch about 215 pounds. Neither go down easy...

Arm Chair GM/Vikings 4 Round 2015 NFL MOCK DRAFT

Posted by Burnem83 in Burnem83's Vikings Blog, 17 January 2015 · 943 views

Arm Chair GM/Vikings 4 Round 2015 NFL MOCK DRAFT Time has come for Vikings, it is Draft Day. Before we get to the Draft let's see what has happened first. Greenway, Johnson, and Felton are either cut or has decided to walk. Vikings saved 12+million in cap space with those three, and restructured Jennings contract to save another 3 million. So Vikings are looking at close to 25 million in cap room with t...

Wildcard Weekend Matchups

Wildcard Weekend Matchups The Vikings are done for the season and we have an interesting off season to look forward to. We have the draft and free agency coming up and what current Vikings will be cut as well as which of their own free agents will they sign. Since there will not be much happening until the Super Bowl is complete, let’s take a look at the playoff match-ups this wee...

What's in store for the Vikings?

Posted by Holden Mitchell in Holden's Vikings Blog, 09 November 2014 · 654 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 · 512 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...

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? 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 · 374 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.

2014 Minnesota Vikings Roster Analysis

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?
