Mike Zimmer shows frustration with Cordarrelle Patterson

It's official: Cordarrelle Patterson has entered Slumpville. The Vikings' young (but wildly talented) receiver, continuing to trend downward, had just two catches for 15 yards in the Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Lions.

The Minnesota Vikings should stay put at #8 on draft day

Trade up or stay put? The Vikings may be feasting their eyes on a draft day trade with either the St. Louis Rams or Houston Texans which would potentially give them either the first or second draft choice. This would be one of the most gutsy calls ever made by Rick Spielman as general manager, and it could easily end up being his last draft day ever with the Vikings if it ends up...
