Minnesota Vikings: Ranking Defensive Position Groups

As we approach the start of the 2015 NFL season, it’s clear that the Minnesota Vikings’ defense will be their biggest asset for winning those pivotal games next year. In a league where defense wins championships, teams like the Minnesota Vikings have begun to understand the importance of solidifying the defensive side of the ball. Now entering his second year as the Vikings’...

Anthony Barr Makes a Case for “Black Jesus Diaries”

Personally, I don’t think it has quite the same ring to it as “Purple Jesus Diaries”, but with Anthony Barr becoming such a defensive, young stud for the Vikings, and with Adrian Peterson preferring to only beat up young studs like his children, it would make more sense to name a Vikings blog after Anthony Barr than it would Adrian Peterson right now. And, the only “{blank...

Minnesota Vikings: First rounders proving their worth

Following their 19-13 overtime victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Mike Zimmer and Minnesota Vikings are surely celebrating their first win in the month of October. The win is much needed after last week’s last second loss to Buffalo, especially considering the manner in which they won. After giving 13 points in the 4th quarter, the Vikings fired back with a last second...

Minnesota Vikings: Defense looks great in 10-6 win against Raiders

Mike Zimmer’s first game as an NFL head coach is officially over, ending in a 10-6 win for the Minnesota Vikings. The defense looked great, and didn’t allow the Raiders past the 50 yard line for the first 20 minutes of the game. The Vikings’ first team offense was efficient, especially with Matt Cassel at quarterback. Overall, the team played physical football, and has shown...

Vikings' rookie LB Barr closing in on starting job

MANKATO, Minn. --€“ After inserting rookie linebacker Anthony Barr into the first-team defense this week, Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer was asked how Barr responded to the assignment. Zimmer said he only noticed Barr, the team's first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, when he missed a blitz. The defensive-minded coach might have been joking a bit about his new defensive project...

Barr finally able to accelerate learning curve with Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Almost everywhere linebackers coach Adam Zimmer goes, Anthony Barr isn't too far behind. The Minnesota Vikings' linebacker coach and the first-round pick are nearly inseparable out on the practice field for the team's three-day mandatory minicamp. It's quite the contrast from the coaching Barr's seen since being selected in May's NFL Draft. Barr was left to...

Vikings Sign First-Round Pick OLB Anthony Barr

  Ben Goessling of, citing a league source, reports that the Vikings have reached an agreement with first-round pick OLB Anthony Barr. It’s somewhat surprising that the first draft pick the Vikings have signed happens to be their first-round selection. They have another nine players to get under contract. Barr was an interesting selection for Minnesota as there was speculation...

Grading Each Vikings Pick From the 2014 NFL Draft Class

Round 1, Pick 9 | Anthony Barr LB, UCLA Analysis: Not going to lie, this pick dropped my jaw a bit. Not because I didn’t like it, just that it was a bit of a shock to the ole system. The name was tossed around early in the draftseason but Barr had little to zero steam to the Vikings leading up to draft day. Some think he was a reach at 9, but his freakish ability wouldn’t have...

How Athletic is Anthony Barr? Sports Science Takes a Look

We’ll do lots to cover this weekend’s draft throughout the next week, but the biggest head scratcher for some people is that the Vikings took UCLA LB Anthony Barr with their first of two first round picks. Some people were telling me they had never even heard of the guy, which leads me to believe they are just stupid and don’t watch college football. Regardless, if you need...
