Vikings will need to rely on Adrian Peterson hard over the next couple years

In a pass-happy NFL, Adrian Peterson could likely be the last running back standing when it comes to big contracts. He also might be the only running back that can catch Emmitt Smith’s rushing record, but it will be hard this year.  Norv Turner likes to spread the ball around and usually his tight end […] The post Vikings will need to rely on Adrian Peterson hard over the next...

Vikings Training Camp Access: Final Wrap-Up

While returning from a vacation down south, I couldn’t help myself in wandering back over to Vikings Training Camp for the final day in Mankato. Thursday was deemed “Fan Appreciation Day,” by the team. Halfway through the afternoon session, and an hour into the team practicing on the far-side field… I began wondering how much fan appreciation was really happening. But, it...

Teddy Bridgewater Told to ‘Stop Overthinking’

A bit of a slow news day as we head in to Week 2 of the NFL preseason, and apparently we can’t get enough of rookie quarterback news. Johnny Manziel is 15 seconds late to five-minute meeting and gets crucified. Blake Bortles can’t seem to do enough to be named the starter in Jacksonville. Now, Teddy Bridgewater is being told to stop thinking so much. As the Mark Craig of the...

Donovan McNabb is right, the Wildcat is garbage

Every time former NFL quarterback and current NFL analyst Donovan McNabb is critical of active quarterbacks or the systems they play in, we inevitably think of stones and glass houses. But McNabb was spot-on in his recent criticism of the mere notion that the New York Jets might use the Wildcat offense with Michael Vick in 2014. “The Jets tried this whole garbage with Tim Tebow...

NFL Craziest Moments: Marshall runs the wrong way

Get all of The Buzzer's previous "Craziest NFL Moments" here. Minnesota Vikings ironman Jim Marshall played an NFL record 282 consecutive games at defensive end.

Gray is lone Vikings defensive coach without ties to Zimmer

MANKATO, Minn. -- Twenty-one years ago, Mike Zimmer received his NFL start in Dallas as a defensive backs coach. As Zimmer has progressed through his coaching career, the defensive backfield doesn't stray far from his thoughts.

Matt Cassel looks like right choice at QB for Vikings ... for now

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says he hasn't settled on a starting quarterback. But the way he describes the decision between veteran Matt Cassel and rookie Teddy Bridgewater sure seems to drop a strong hint he knows what he wants to do. "A lot of it that I have to gauge isn't just necessarily those two. It's the rest of the football team," Zimmer told...

Cassel looks for more time with Vikings offense

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Matt Cassel is itching for preseason playing time as he tries to master the intricacies of new offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system with the Minnesota Vikings.
