How the Viking's defense could stop the Cowboy's offense?

Posted by A. James in Sota Sports , 01 December 2016 · 74 views

The Viking’s defense faces their biggest challenge yet when the Cowboys come to town tonight. Dallas is the third-highest scoring offense in the NFL (28.7 points/game), according to ESPN’s Team stats. Whether the Vikings can limit the Cowboy’s offense will be a big indicator of Minnesota’s success or failure. Here are some key areas for the Viking’s defen...

Welcome to December in the NFL. I started the season thinking I’d be making a joke about Tony Romo’s talent for performing well in December and how it might impact Thursday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings, but it wasn’t meant to be. We only have a handful of weeks left, and now that I’ve passed 100 wins with a 109-66-2 record, I’m very curiou...

Vikings Thanksgiving 3rd Down Woes

This Thanksgiving the Minnesota Vikings decided they wanted to lose another heartbreaker vs the Lions. Similar to the first game the defense played well enough to earn us a win but due to late drives and offensive ineptitude, the Vikings managed to lose another game to the woeful Lions. Going into the season even without all the injuries our defense was n...

The Mystery of the Missing Big Play MISSING: BIG PLAYS...
The Vikings’ 5-0 start to the season was the product of a number of factors, but a few stand out as primary drivers: consistently playing strong defense, consistently limiting mistakes on offense, and consistently being able to rely on impact plays in all phases of the game. In the four games since, there has been a noticeable drop...

Yeah, I know. After this past Sunday’s fiasco I swore off drinking wine and promised to do maintenance type chores instead of wasting Sunday afternoons watching the struggling Vikings. Thank God I came to my senses!
Actually I had help. Two big guys in purple coats showed up at my place looking for me, Beefy and Burly, both wearing baseball...

Quitting Time

Posted by vikesgeek in vikesgeek's Blog, 31 October 2016 · 215 views

In a 20-10 loss to the previously 1-6 Chicago Bears that can only be described as oozing excrement, the Minnesota Vikings continued their 180 degree turn from their performances in their first five games of the season. Like last week, Minnesota paired inept play-calling with woeful offensive line play and an utter lack of interest to sleepwalk to a loss....

I never got to finish my 5 part series on the Vikes/Packers lineup. First off I would like to thanks the Vikings Journal for allowing me to write this blog and to Viking fans for allowing me to give my opinions on both teams (reason my blog is called the other side) and getting fair treatment by the vast majority of Vi...

Live from Philly-v2 "It's Eagles Week."

Three words I NEVER thought I'd say.

But on September 3rd, everything changed. Teddy BH2O went down with the horrific knee injury and we picked up Sammy B from the Iggles.

Through week 3 of the season, Carson Wentz was Joe Montana and the Birds were on their way to the Super Bowl. According to Philly fans, Howie Roseman pulled off t...

It's something that I enjoy doing especially as the season goes along and I thought I would do it online this year. I will rank each team weekly and then post the top 12 since that is how many playoff teams there are and sum up the teams with a sentence or two. I will also add...

Week 1 has come and gone, and what an exciting week it was. Not many major upsets, as 13 of the 16 favorites won, but countless games were decided in the final minute. Week 2 provides a chance for all teams to prove they belong or if you might just be in for a long season as a fan. As always, it’s crucial to not over-rea...

Stefon Diggs and How Receivers Win: Diggs Isn’t Winning With Just His Routes Anymore Last week, Stefon Diggs posted a 103-yard game with Shaun Hill throwing him the ball. Diggs was the highest-graded player on the Vikings offense by far and accounted for 44% of the Vikings’ passing yards. His seven receptions ties a career high, and his 103 yards marks his third 100-yard-game in the past year. Again, this was with Shaun Hill throwing hi...

The Vikings were victorious in their Week One game against the Tennessee Titans 25-16. Offensively, the Vikings had five field goal attempts to show for their efforts and were outscored by their own defense 13-12.

In a game that featured Shaun Hill at QB, a Vikings win was expected to have featured a big day from Adrian Peterson. That was not the case as...

After a Labor Day weekend spent at a cabin with no cell service or Internet (if you've not done that in a while, I highly recommend it), I returned to the wired world to find four college football teams that really stood out in their openers.

Let's take a look at those four squads and what's next for each of them:

Win Now! - The 2016 Minnesota Vikings There was no doubt that Minnesota Viking teammates were shaken after seeing their beloved young quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, go down last Tuesday. Later that afternoon, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, showed an unusual emotional side to him. Zimmer had a tough time finding the right words, but explained, “ He’s a great kid. Let’s let him get healthy an...

Bold Predictions and Statements About The Minnesota Vikings Offense

Posted by JGunther in JGunther's Blog, 29 July 2016 · 350 views

The Minnesota Vikings reported to Mankato for training camp on Thursday. They haven’t had realistic Super Bowl aspirations since 2010. Last season, they were close, but needed to upgrade several areas of the offense first. They were 16th in total offense, 23rd in yards per play, 29th in first downs, 31st in passing yards and 31st in passing touchdowns. Al...

Should AP Play in the Preseason? Case Closed

adrian peterson preseason

For half a decade the debate has raged on about whether or not Adrian Peterson should play in the preseason. AP has not had a carry in a preseason game since 2011 but something that makes the annual discussion point different this fall is that AP himself is lobbying to play.
In an interview with nfl.com in May Adrian said he would pressure Coach Zimme...
