A Quiet Critic

Posted by Cm1 in Horns Earned, 17 December 2014 · 109 views

I'm all out of ideas after last weeks game. Truth be told the game was well executed and the gameplay kept me on my toes, the interior was varying enough that I couldn't pick up on positives or negatives in one run through. I'd love to watch that tape a couple time through and nit pick.

So instead I'll take a quick scan of the league issues I feel are mi...

Missing Wide Right and Left at Wide Receiver

Posted by ForPete'sSake in ForPete'sSake Blog, 17 December 2014 · 135 views

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the NFL changed its rules to favor the pass and catch game to increase scoring and game excitement - therefore pouncing on the marketability of the sport and overly appeasing the likes of fantasy football fanatics who pour hours upon hours into off-season study and pretty much every game during a norma...

What's in store for the Vikings?

Posted by Holden Mitchell in Holden's Vikings Blog, 09 November 2014 · 605 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!!! 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 · 334 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?
