Christian Ponder continues to regress. When the season started out it looked like the Vikings had a new and improved Christian Ponder, through the first six games of the year Ponder was completing 69 percent of his passes and had thrown only four interceptions.However, Ponder's previous two games, vs. the Cardinals and Buccaneers, he has only completed 52 percent of his passes, thrown three interceptions, and has had a quarterback rating (QBR) of 16.  The Vikings were able to get the win vs. a Cardinals team who is on a three game losing streak (excluding the MNF match-up vs. the 49ers), but were beaten by the lowly 3-4 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.If this team still wants to make the playoffs, they are going to need Ponder to start playing like he did at the beginning of the year.The Vikings won't win vs. NFC North teams. The Minnesota Vikings play in one of the toughest divisions in the NFL. The teams they must face twice a year include the Bears, Packers, and Lions.  Of those tea...

Adrian Peterson goes as the Hulk for Vikings Halloween Party

The Minnesota Vikings had a Halloween party last night, and it was probably a nice way for them to have some fun after what had to be a disappointing night on Thursday in a loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Peterson tweeted a photo of his costume earlier today and it was impressive.Vikings Halloween Party last night!

Robinson, Jefferson ready to fill in for Cook

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings are well versed in handling injury situations in the defensive backfield and tried to improve the depth coming into this season. After losing cornerback Chris Cook to a broken arm last week, the depth will be tested. Rookie Josh Robinson has spent much of his time as the team's third corner and A.J. Jefferson, acquired before the season...

With Cook down, Vikings could get Raymond's return

The Minnesota Vikings could have safety Mistral Raymond back in action this weekend, one step toward some depth in a secondary that's sure to be tested during the second half of the season. ''I'm healed and I'm available. To what extent and how much they want to use me, that's totally up to them,'' Raymond said. ''I'm just going to go...

Eagles to stick with Vick as McNabb chimes in

For all intents and purposes it looks as if Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will live to fight another day. As Philadelphia prepares to face another struggling group in the New Orleans Saints, coach Andy Reid certainly can’t handle trying to repair his suspect defense and work in a new signal caller in the same week. There must be order and the Saints can without a doubt offensively...

Minnesota Vikings: The real deal?

As the season reaches the half way point, a lot of people are wondering if the Minnesota Viking’s are the real deal. They are 5-3 coming off a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

PJD's Game Eight Recap: Premium Letdowns

*PPPPPPPPPFFFFFTFTFTFTFTFTFFTFTFTTFTFTTFTTFBALLOONDEFLATINGSOUND* Well dudes, it was a good run.

Vikes Fan Pisses Self During Bucs Game, Do You Blame Him?

As has been evident that past five days or so, the last game the Minnesota Vikings played was certainly one for the urinal cakes. They got throttled by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on national television, and wasted a perfectly awesome Purple Jesus run for no good reason. If that doesn't piss you off, it should, and clearly, it "pissed" this following Vikings fan off, too...

Vikings secondary will have new look

A.J. Jefferson is likely to get extended playing time after the loss of Chris Cook, and Mistral Raymond should be available for the first time in six weeks. Jefferson, Antoine Winfield and Leslie Frazier talked about the changes to the secondary.

The Prophet brings NFL Week 8 Predictions

The Sports Prophet has been near perfect over the past 2 weeks.  Off to another great start in week 8 with the upset road win by the Tampa Bay Bucs over the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night.  I'll say this about these upcoming games on Sunday...they're tough.  Plenty of solid match ups on the schedule Sunday, so from a football perspective it doesn't get much better...
