Found October 25, 2013 on Sportress of Blogitude:
As a lifelong (and long-suffering) Minnesota Vikings fan it pains me to report that Emmertt Pearson, a fellow lifelong (and long-suffereing, albeit for much, much longer) Vikings fan, passed away at the age of 83 at his home on Monday. Pearson, all the way back in 1974, vowed to not shave his beard until his […]The post Vikings fan who refused to shave beard until team won Super Bowl dies at 83 (photo) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

Vikings aiming for return to dominating ground game

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Take your pick. 54 to 13, or 30 to one. Those were the ratios Monday night for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman and running back Adrian Peterson. For the game, Freeman had 53 pass attempts and was sacked once. Peterson, the reigning MVP had 13 carries for 28 yards. In the fourth quarter, Freeman threw a staggering 30 passes with 19 incompletions...

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). It is very rare to hear players, even EX-player question each other injuries, but Harrison implies that Freeman seeing that the Vikings aren’t very good pulled a Roberto Duran. I would hope that isn’t the case, but Harrison who on...

Adrian Peterson buys his offensive line snowmobiles (Photo/Video)

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was kind enough to buy his offensive lineman snowmobiles. That’s not a cheap gift.   A good snowmobile like an Artic Cat can ranges from $5-10, 000 per snowmobile. Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

Ponder will start for Vikings against Packers

Christian Ponder will start at quarterback for Minnesota against Green Bay on Sunday night, while Josh Freeman will be inactive after being cleared to practice. Next week's as-the-quarterback-carousel-turns episode has not been written yet, but the Vikings have their guy for the Packers game. Coach Leslie Frazier confirmed after practice on Friday that Ponder will start against...

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. ...

An Open Letter to Vikings Fans

Dear Viking fans,This season has been a disaster. That much we can all agree on. However, how we emerge from the wreckage is a topic debated by every fan of the Vikings.Cleaning house seems to be an opinion encouraged by many. Firing head coach Leslie Frazier, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, and defensive coordinator Alan Williams are all ideas gaining traction, and I can guarantee...

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...

Jared Allen: Brett Favre shouldn't come back again

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- With news of Brett Favre being asked about a return to the NFL, Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said he would get on a plane again to Hattiesburg, Miss., to talk to his friend and former teammate. The approach this time would be a little different than three seasons ago when Allen, Ryan Longwell and Steve Hutchinson got on Zygi Wilf's private...

Josh Freeman Says He Didn’t Hear About Rodney Harrison Saying He Faked His Concussion

Packers are ailing, yet motivated upon arrival to Metrodome

Greg Jennings says that his comments about the Green Bay Packers weren't serious. He's got enough to worry with his Minnesota Vikings making another change at quarterback. Christian Ponder is back as the starter for Sunday night's final Metrodome matchup between these NFC North rivals, who are meeting for the first time since the playoffs last season. The storyline...

Brett Favre says he suffers from memory loss
