Somehow, I know quite a few Minnesota Viking fans. A common trait they all share is their displeasure — bordering on embarassment — in regard to Minnesota’s starting quarterback, Christian Ponder. “We’d be fine if we had a better quarterback” is a phrase I’ve heard more than once from more than one disgruntled fan.
I must be honest and say that I haven’t spent a lot of time watching Ponder or the Vikings play over the past few years. One game I did watch was the Viking’s Week 17 win over Green Bay, a game that clinched a playoff berth for Minnesota. I then tuned in the following week to watch the Vikings lose to that very same Green Bay team by two touchdowns. There were only two notable differences between the first and second game: the location and Minnesota’s starting quarterback.
Let’s be honest here. Homefield advantage is important, however, it is not worth a 17 point swing between two playoff teams. Yet that’s what happened last season when Minnesota won the first matchup with G

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook knows what he’s going to tell rookie Xavier Rhodes when it comes to covering the number one receiver of opposing teams. “Just let me handle them,” Cook said on 1500 ESPN Radio. Cook wants to sign an extension with Minnesota as he goes into the final year of his rookie deal. “I’m looking forward to coming back if that’s in the cards...
OK people, I'm not going to lie. This post is total corporate shill, but it's for a good cause. Namely, you may get free stuff out of it! And it's weird from my perspective, so we're totally rolling with it.
Word around the burning Metrodome campfire is that Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder will be attending a grand re-opening of a Champs Sports location at...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. From the moment the Minnesota Vikings made perhaps the draft's biggest move by trading a bevy of picks to acquire Cordarrelle Patterson in the first round, they've talked about a "plan" for developing the talented, but raw receiver.
Decision makers like general manager Rick Spielman and Leslie Frazier haven'tpubliclyspoken of details, instead...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. For the past several years, the Minnesota Vikings have entered seasons with a preferred set of cornerbacks they believed could help them negate the pass-happy offenses in the NFC North.
Inevitably, injuries hit and poor performance left the secondary among the biggest weak spots for Minnesota. The injuries became a yearly issue with players like Cedric Griffin...
Look at this god damn thing. It's a work of art. The deep purple, the kingly gold, the horizontal stripes. It's like whatever grandmother knitted this reached deep into my wet dreams and retrieved this from the ether to display it so finely on a weird ass mannequin. Not that I'm complaining. While I'd love to wear it, I will also gladly ogle it like a picture of Jennifer...
Over the course of the off-season we’ll be looking back at some of the major players who ‘broke out’ or outperformed their ADP by a drastic amount in the hopes that we can get a feel for what their 2013 fantasy football season holds and whether the break out is here to stay. Today the review subject is Kyle Rudolph.
There were a lot of breakout Tight Ends in 2012 – Dennis...
Xavier Rhodes’ “burn rate” in college was the best among the top cornerbacks available in this year’s draft involved in a STATS study. See how he stacked up against others and what he had to say about making the transition to the Vikings defense.
One of the Vikings’ top undrafted signings, Rodney Smith has the measurables desired in NFL receivers. At Florida State, he was solid and unselfish but didn’t produce gaudy receiving numbers.
