FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
There are very few guarantees in life beyond taxes and death, yet when it comes to Christian Ponder there is a guarantee, and that is the Minnesota Vikings offense does not go thru him no matter what position he plays.
Let’s be realistic here, the Vikings offense goes as Adrian Peterson goes. And while Minnesota head coach Leslie Frazier has said that there will not be a battle for the main quarterback job, that does not mean Ponder is a viable option in fantasy leagues. Ok, ok, if you are playing in extremely deep fantasy football leagues where there are 32 teams, sure there is a need for Ponder. But odds are only .01 percent of you are doing that. So why don’t we recommend Ponder to you guys? Let’s dig a little deeper.
Despite the presence of Peterson and star wide out Percy Harvin along with the youth of Ponder who is only twenty-five ...

Boy, you know it's award season when Christian Ponder shows up on a red carpet with a suit on!
Well, actually this was from a couple of weeks ago, but the point still stands. Christian Ponder and his wife Samantha Ponder hit an ESPN red carpet event recently where they talked about married life, love, football, and POWER COUPLES! The video (seen below) is attached to an article...
So we've already seen what the official new Norseman logo for the Minnesota Vikings will look like this year. We spent COUNTLESS hours looking at fan designs and other suggested brand updates and ideas, only to end up with a new logo that was, well, just slightly different. But that's a good thing.
Because holy crap, look at how awful it could have turned out.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings enjoyed the advantage of picking early in the 2012 NFL draft by selecting what they hope is a longtime starter at left tackle in Matt Kalil and using their early second-round pick as leverage to move back in the first round and grab safety Harrison Smith.
Kalil and Smith started every game and played key roles in their rookie season. Minnesota...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says he'll follow up his 2012 MVP award by not only breaking the single-season NFL rushing mark but shattering it with 2,500 yards.
So what does Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson plan to do? Apparently run for more than Peterson, whatever number he puts up.
Appearing on ESPN's "NFL Live,...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe offered his outspoken support of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo as they became two of the more prominent athletes to speak up for same-sex marriage rights. Now the players are joining forces and helping push the cause to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Kluwe's and Ayanbadejo's names were part of an amicus curiae...
Fans may be concerned about the Vikings losing Phil Loadholt, but the numbers don’t add up for them to use the franchise tag on him.
Vikings punter Chris Kluwe and Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo have combined their collective forces once again in support of gay marriage, and this time they’re moving way up the political ladder.
Back in September of 2011, Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns penned a letter to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, basically asking him to quiet his players — namely Ayanbadejo...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings are entering a pivotal third year for Christian Ponder and the determination of whether he has the tools to develop into a franchise quarterback. The next step of the puzzle for Minnesota: putting the proper pieces around Ponder to make a proper decision.Regardless of how the saga with leading receiver Percy Harvin unfolds this offseason...
Tennessee running back proposed this week that he would A) out rush league MVP Adrian Peterson this season and B) take a run at the all time rushing record held by Eric Dickerson. Maybe, it’s possible but the numbers need bearing out before it can be given any credibility whatsoever. The all time record, held [...]
