NFL Offseason Preview -- Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota Vikings 2011 Record:  3-13 PPG For:  21.3 (19th) PPG Against:  28.1 (31st) 2012 Cap Number:  $116,078,422 Draft Position:  #3 Overall Pick It seems like forever ago, but the Vikings are just a few short years removed from having what could easily be called the best team in the NFL. Of course, that season went up in flames thanks to a Brett Favre INT (Prince would like you to send him You Tube links to that clip). Last season went up in flames thanks to…well, pretty much thanks to everything. The Donovan McNabb experiment was inglorious and short-lived, the Christian Ponder era has far more questions than answers, and the team’s best player, Adrian Peterson, appears to have a long road back to superstardom. And for all his hard work, Rick Spielman, the man who got Minnesota in this mess, was promoted. Gotta love the NFL!
