Found October 02, 2012 on Total Titans:
The last time the Tennessee Titans played the Minnesota Vikings, the starting quarterbacks were Gus Frerotte and Kerry Collins. Wow, that was a long time ago. For insight into what the Vikings circa 2012 actually look like, I'll be doing a question and answer exchange with Bloguin's Vikings blog, Purple Jesus Diaries. If you have any questions you'd like answered, post them in the comments section and I'll include them.

Minnesota Vikings jump to 13th in the NFL power rankings

The Minnesota Vikings are currently ranked 13th overall in the NFL Power Rankings according to the CBS Power Rankings going into week five.  The current leaders in the power rankings go as follows:  Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, and the Baltimore Ravens.

Hutchinson wasn't surprised by Vikings exit

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Guard Steve Hutchinson said he, "saw the writing on the wall" as the Minnesota Vikings entered last offseason looking to get younger and that he wasnt surprised by his release a few days before free agency started in March.Hutchinson, the 12-year veteran who spent six years with the Vikings, ended up signing a three-year, 16 million contract with the...

Titans must get rid of Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson is arguably the best runner for the Tennessee Titans. An explosive runner that has been reduced to the bottom of the NFL stat sheets. Johnson is the 2K yard man with many attributes that attributed to one of the top contracts for a running back in the NFL.Why the suggestion to get rid of him? I’ll admit that it would be hard to watch your star player once again be...

Vikings not surprised by their fast start

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings understood the low expectations from outside the organization. During training camp, linebacker Chad Greenway asked the obvious: Why would the pundits predict good things for Minnesota, a team coming off a franchise-tying 13 losses, with a star running back trying to return from major knee surgery, an unproven second-year quarterback and...

Titans Rule Out QB Jake Locker For Week 5 - Jake Locker…

Titans Rule Out QB Jake Locker For Week 5 - Jake Locker (shoulder) will not play in Sunday’s game against the Vikings. Locker is in danger of missing multiple weeks. The Titans want his twice-dislocated left shoulder to get as strong as possible so he doesn’t end up needing season-ending surgery. Veteran Matt Hasselbeck, who averaged 223.2 yards per game and threw 18 touchdowns...

Vikings success starts with improved defense

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. As the Minnesota Vikings season nosedived last year, a lot of the blame was placed on a historically bad secondary, which allowed a 107.6 quarterback rating, the second highest mark in NFL history. Injuries and an overall lack of competency were common themes as Minnesota led the league with 34 passing touchdowns allowed, while tying a league-low with eight...

Ponder: 'We got answers for everything'

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Christian Ponder's development in his second year as the Minnesota Vikings quarterback has been a key, along with a revived defense, to the team's surprise resurgence. Minnesota, with Ponder as the only starting quarterback in the league without an interception, is tied with the Chicago Bears at the top of the NFC North standings. Ponder is a big reason...

Fantasy Update: Chris Johnson Has Addressed Your Complaints

I’m sure all fantasy owners who drafted Chris Johnson in either the first or second round have been utterly disappointed.Johnson’s production through the first three games was pathetic. To open the season he gave fantasy owners a whopping 5.1 points. Then, he followed that up in weeks two and three with 2.8 points and 2.9 points. In a previous article I had written, I advised...

Webb talks backup duties, Blazer and more

QB Joe Webb’s Vikings career has run the gamut, but he remains committed to dutifully serving his role as the backup. He talked about how he helps Christian Ponder, the past as a receiver and where that Blazer package has been.

Titans Cheerleaders Code Blue Pep Rally Lifted my Spirits

Well you can officially bump up the Titan Cheerleading squad to my top 5 and perhaps even top 3 after what happened in Nashville a few weeks ago. Last Friday, Nashville’s NFL fever was stoked with the first ever Titans Code Blue Pep Rally, featuring the Mayor of Nashville, Titans players, Titans mascot T-Rac, announcers, marching bands, live music, and, of course the Tennessee...

Locker could miss one or more games with shoulder injury

Jake Locker's injured left shoulder likely will keep the Tennessee Titans quarterback from playing Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings and there's a possibility he could miss several games. Locker suffered a separated non-throwing shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans. Coach Mike Munchak said an MRI on Monday showed no structural damage, The Tennessean reported...

Where's Michael?

  It's time for a new parlor game here at Total Titans, namely "what the heck is going on when the Tennessee Titans give up a passing touchdown." Since we're all about the synergistic gain here at Total Titans, I'll be doing this in a series of photos highlighting Michael Griffin in a takeoff of the "Where's Waldo" series of books, thus...

Titans-Vikings Preview

Now fully healthy, Adrian Peterson is a big reason the Minnesota Vikings are tied atop the NFC North. The Tennessee Titans hope Chris Johnson's latest performance is the start of good things to come for them and their star running back. Looking to continue their surprising start, Peterson and the Vikings can surpass their win total from last season with a third consecutive...

Travis Browne Hangs With Jared Allen

Travis Browne steps into the octagon Friday night against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at UFC on FX in Minneapolis. So it only makes sense for the media machine to stop through Vikings practice.
