It’s that time of year again where Lupagus drops a quick 5 bold predictions on the Viking nation. Keep in mind each is a BOLD prediction, if it was just 5 ‘predictions’ what fun would that be?
5. Greg Jenning will play in less than 10 regular season games.
I hate to shower the Vikings big free agency signing with a shot of negativity but deep in my hair covered gut, I feel Jennings will get injured. It will cost him some games but will help the rise of Cordarrelle Patterson who has a breakout rookie season, with the added playing time.
4. Christian Ponder will throw for 3,500 yds with 26 TDs and 11 interceptions
If Ponder is ever going to prove he can be a franchise QB this is the year. He’s got Greg Jennings, Cordarrelle Patterson, a healthy Jerome Simpson, Jarius Wright, and Kyle Rudolph to throw to. He has no more excuses. If Ponder can’t reach or at least approach these numbers this year, he never will.
3. Everson Griffen will lead the team in sacks with 13.
Griffen blew up ...
