Exit left Adrian Peterson . . .

Posted by ForPete'sSake in ForPete'sSake Blog, 26 February 2015 · 421 views

Exit left Adrian Peterson . . . Now that the decision has been rendered by Judge Doty to have Adrian Peterson's suspension lifted, now the wheels will really start turning. We will find out whether it's all about money, all about Kevin Warren, all about wanting to play for a contender or simply that he is done with the Minnesota Vikings, no matter how one cuts it, pure and simple.

Sure...

Bloggers: What would you like to see in the blog section? I've been looking at the blog section of the site lately and see that it hasn't gotten any TLC since launch. I made some small changes to how the blogs are listed in the mobile section of the site this morning and that got me thinking... I'm not a blogger. I should ask you bloggers what you want changes you'd like to see made to the site.

Arm Chair GM/Vikings 4 Round 2015 NFL MOCK DRAFT

Posted by Burnem83 in Burnem83's Vikings Blog, 17 January 2015 · 1,202 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 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.

What's in store for the Vikings?

Posted by Holden Mitchell in Holden's Vikings Blog, 09 November 2014 · 686 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 · 563 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....

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 · 406 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?
