Photo courtesy of Minnesota Vikings We’re mere hours from learning who will make the cut for Hall of Fame enshrinement in 2015. At a minimum, this year’s senior candidate has plenty of support. Shortly after learning in mid-2014 that Mick Tingelhoff had been by the Hall of Fame’s senior committee as its lone candidate, long-time Packers defensive end Willie Davis indicated...

Adrian Peterson definitely will be suiting up for an NFL team next season after missing all but one game last season due to his legal issues. It’s only a matter of which one.

Who Should Vikings Fans Cheer For in the 2015 Super Bowl?

Hey! The NFL’s ultimate game – the SUPER BOWL! – is being played this weekend! And guess what? The Minnesota Vikings …. Well, they are not playing in it. They haven’t played in it for over 35 years. Or, for longer than the majority of you I would guess have been alive. I mean, think about it, the last time the Vikings played in the Super Bowl, no one even knew what Star...

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater Named Pepsi Rookie of the Year

It was a little surprising when Teddy Bridgewater was still available at the end of the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, but Minnesota Vikings fans are certainly happy he was. He ended up starting 13 games last season and led the team to a 7-9 record; much better than anyone guessed since the team was without Adrian Peterson the whole time.Over all he played pretty good completing...

Kevin Hart and Adrian Peterson Doing a 40-Yard Dash at 1am

Remember a time when Kevin Hart and the sports world weren’t so intertwined? I don’t, which is why I’m totally not surprised by this random 40-yard dash competition with the Vikings’ Adrian Peterson. According to a witness, this went down after Hart’s show at the Austin City Limits Theater … at 1AM: Though I’m not a big fan of Hart, you have to respect the effort the...

Vikings' defensive turnaround in Year 1 with Zimmer provides hope for more

The Cover-2 defense had run its course in Minnesota. Once one of the consistent defensive philosophies, the scheme had become a predictable shell for the Minnesota Vikings, who slipped to one of the worst defenses in the NFL over the past several seasons. Quarterbacks like Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers had strong, accurate arms to exploit the zones, and often would know where he was...

2014 Vikings Review: Running Back Doldrums

Slowly but surely we are going to get through the positions and players of the 2014 Vikings and summarize just how good (or awful!) they were in 2014. With a final 7-9 record, you can bet that the aggregate results will be “mediocre.” However, you can bet your ass there were some areas that stuck out. Let’s remember those fondly, instead.  RUNNING BACKS Which Ones? Adrian...

Norv Turner’s Impact on the Minnesota Vikings Offense

With Christian Ponder under center from 2011-2012, the Minnesota Vikings’ passing offense was anemic at best. In those two seasons, the Ponder-led Vikings finished 28th and 24th, respectively, in total passing yards. Bill Musgrave, the offensive coordinator at the time, relied heavily on the legs of Adrian Peterson.Peterson famously rushed for 2,097 yards in 2012, leading the Vikings...

Minnesota Vikings: Top 3 Free Agents To Target This Offseason

The Minnesota Vikings ended the 2014 regular season with a 7-9 record.  That's a respectable effort for a team who had a rookie head coach in Mike Zimmer, a rookie quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater and without their All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson.  Now the hard work really begins. The Vikings have a number of free agents but none that they need to lose sleep over.  Their...
