Today we tackle the Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders and superfans. Like most of you, we are itching for football season to start. In the midst of the dog days of summer, many get sick of baseball and start turning their attention to football. Don’t blame you a bit. To help quench your thirst, BC is going on a 32 team, 32 day, 32 gallery tour of NFL cheerleaders & superfans.

Can Adrian Peterson, Christian Ponder and the Vikes get on track in a tough NFC North?

The Vikings could be in trouble. If second year quarterback Christian Ponder doesn’t take the next step, it might be a long year. Then again, if Adrian Peterson is fully recovered from his nasty injury you never know how far he can take you. First round pick Matt Kalil looks like he could be an anchor on the o-line for years to come too. Honestly, a lot is on Ponder’s shoulders and we’re not sold he is the answer.

It doesn’t help that they play in the NFC North, a division that the Packers and Bears call home. Couple that with the Lions improvement and the Vikings may get the short end of the stick.
