Is Johnny Football the savior for the Vikings?

Johnny Manziel is a very solid quarterback and can somehow escape a burning car with explosives in it. Well is that what the Vikings need?

Rodney Harrison makes bizarre accusation about Josh Freeman

Rodney Harrison was on with Amani & Eytan NBC Sports Radio and basically said Josh Freeman is faking (you can listen to the full audio here).

I would hope that isn’t the case, but Harrison who on...

The Josh Freeman Factor: New Starter Getting Unfair Rap In Minnesota

Last year, the Vikings got away with sub-par quarterback play by leaning on a stalwart defense and an unreal string of success from Adrian Peterson and finished with a respectable 10-6 record that included a coveted wild card playoff berth. Their lone postseason contest didn’t end pretty (a 24-10 loss to the Packers), but then again there was very little the team could do with...

Giants with stout defense notch first win over the Vikings 23-7

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey– The Giants defensive line kept Vikings new quarterback and addition Josh Freeman very uncomfortable all game. Freeman was very inaccurate completing 20 of his 53 passes with an interception on a wild throw to Giants defensive back Antrel Rolle. Eli Manning finally looked like he had his Giants(1-6) offense under control […]

Vikings report card: Failing the eye test

Monday night's stinker in the Meadowlands somehow lived up to the advanced billing between the 1-4 Minnesota Vikings and 0-6 New York Giants. Besides failing the eye test for two teams that either were in the playoffs or right on the outside last season, the numbers prove the disaster. Minnesota is now 1-5 after Monday night's 23-7 loss to the previously winless Giants and...

From the UK with Love

Let’s give a big Texas sized hello to our NFL fans in England.

Ponder gets another opportunity to disappoint against Packers

Minnesota Vikings starting QB for last week's game, the newly acquired Josh Freeman, apparently has a concussion, so he won't get his second start with the team afterall. That's either good news or bad news for Vikings fans (or both)... So by default, head coach Leslie Frazier will reluctantly turn to the formerly benched Christian Ponder, according to ESPN.com. ...

New York Giants Defeat Lifeless Minnesota Vikings, 23-7

It wasn’t pretty or fun to watch, but the New York Giants finally won a game by defeating the lifeless Minnesota Vikings 23-7. This game could have gone in any direction as I had mentioned in my pre-game breakdown that the Giants needed to do win in three areas if they wanted to win. 1) Win the battle of the turnovers 2) Contain Adrian Peterson and 3) Win the time of possession...
