Ponder needs to start learning from mistakes

In a season full of them, Sunday might qualify as the Minnesota Vikings' most disappointing loss of the season. Minnesota has had plenty of interesting, sometimes embarrassing, losses. Meanwhile, the Vikings are still finding new, strange ways to lose and Sunday's 34-28 loss at Detroit might not be topped. The final play might have summarized the entire season. Backup quarterback...

Vikings aren't safe from the passing attack yet

Just one week ago, Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier stepped to the podium at his press conference following the Vikings' loss to the Denver Broncos and was as critical as he's ever been about the play of his secondary. With Tim Tebow in the rear-view mirror and Matthew Stafford ahead of the Vikings last week, Frazier sent out a warning: "(The Lions have) a prolific...

Vikings Drop a Thriller to the Lions, 34-28

The Vikings may be losers but at least they’re entertaining losers. For the second straight week they hung with a playoff team and had a chance to win it late, only to watch a turnover end their hopes for a thrilling upset.

Vikings making push after Ponder exits

It would be fitting, we suppose, if a team that spent much of the early part of the season blowing big leads would erase a big deficit and emerge with a win. In Detroit, the Vikings have pulled to within 10 points of the Lions after a 65-yard touchdown run by quarterback Joe Webb, who…

One year ago, the Metrodome roof collapsed

By JOHN HOLLER Monday marks the one-year anniversary of an event many people believed was unthinkable - even in a year full of various distractions - as the 30-year-old Metrodome collapsed under the weight of a mid-December snowstorm. Some Vikings players reflected on their memories of that moment, as the roof collapse became the latest in a seemingly never-ending...

Fireside Chat: Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings

A minor technical snafu (I didn't press record right away) chopped off the intro and the first minute or so, but here's this week's Fireside Chat. A strange and bizarre-feeling win, but . . . yes, a win. Subscribe (and rate!) via iTunes if you are an iTunesy person like myself.
