Norv Turner: Vikings will divide QB reps differently

The Minnesota Vikings have a trio of quarterbacks competing for the Week 1 starting job.  But offensive coordinator Norv Turner has narrowed his focus to two quarterbacks receiving the most snaps in training camp. “I am pleased with the four days, the progress they have made and where they are at, and obviously, you cannot work three (quarterbacks) for a long time, so the reps...

VIDEO: Is Adrian Peterson the greatest running back of all time?

I couldn’t handle waiting for the NFL season to start anymore so a couple weeks ago I spluged and bought Game Rewind. If you need to ask yourself if it’s worth the investment then you need a splash of February Minnesota lake water in the face. One of the cooler things is they keep an archive of every game over the last five seasons, so I decided to take a look at Adrian Peterson’s...

Norv Turner explains what makes Teddy Bridgewater special

Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner did an interview with The Star Tribune and explained to them just how special rookie Teddy Bridgewater is. The first thing Turner talked about is Bridgewater’s quick release. “Look at this one,” Turner says. “The tight end is running an 18-yard out. Teddy drops. One, two, three, four, five and, bam, the ball’s out. See how quick...

Vikings training camp position battle undergoing

It’s about to get bloody at Minnesota Vikings’ training camp. Sure, camp can be light-hearted when you’re guaranteed a spot, but what happens when you’re fighting for your livelihood? Everyone’s conversation is about the quarterback battle, but the fiercest battle is the one for quarterback of the defense. Before digging deeper into the “Mike” linebacker position, let’s...

Teddy Bridgewater continues to gain momentum towards starter position

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner is working to transform rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater into a starter sooner than later and said the young signal caller is on track.

Vikings Who Need To Make An Impact In 2014 No. 5 Xavier Rhodes

#5 | Xavier Rhodes Number 5 on the list goes to cornerback Xavier Rhodes.  Rhodes overcame a tough start to his rookie season to finish arguably as the Vikings top cornerback.  Early in the year he was often flagged for pass interference as he was too physical in coverage.  As the season progressed, Rhodes’ technique was much more refined and he started seeing less laundry...

Adrian Peterson praises versatile Minnesota Vikings offense

Adrian Peterson has played with some great hand-off quarterbacks for the Vikings since entering the league in 2007: Tarvaris Jackson, Kelly Holcomb, Brooks Bollinger, Gus Frerotte, Joe Webb, Christian Ponder, et al. Minnesota's milquetoast collection of signal-callers -- minus Brett Favre's unworldly 2009 campaign -- constantly have led the generational running back to eight...

Adrian Peterson says Vikings offense 'is so versatile'

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson believes the team was predictable in the past, but that won't be the case going forward under new management.

What will Greg Jennings bring to the Vikings in 2014?

The Minnesota Vikings signed former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings before the start of last season, and were hoping that he would be an immediate impact in turning their passing game around. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to do the type of things that they were hoping, but did come through with a decent season. Minnesota’s main issue is that they haven’t had a...

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback competition is starting to heat up and come into focus, and as Christian Ponder is already fading to the back, rookie Teddy Bridgewater is starting to push veteran Matt Cassel for first team reps.

Vikings Who Need To Make An Impact In 2014 No. 6 Middle Linebacker

#6 | Middle Linebacker Number 6 on the list goes to an entire position once again and that is Middle Linebacker. The Vikings have had a rotating door at the middle linebacker position since EJ Henderson broke his leg back in 2010. They’ve had players like Jasper Brinkley and Erin Henderson who have been serviceable.  They’ve also tried young guys like Audie Cole.  While...

Minnesota Vikings: Expectations of first round picks

Now that the Minnesota Vikings have begun training camp for the 2014 season, it’s natural for all of the attention to be focused on the team’s two first round picks from this year’s draft. Those two players are linebacker Anthony Barr from UCLA, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater from Louisville. Both first round picks will have to earn their playing time, and training camp...

Vikings Who Need to Make an Impact in 2014 #7 Sharrif Floyd

#7 | Sharrif Floyd Number 7 on the list goes to defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd. When Floyd slipped all the way to pick 23 in the 2013 NFL Draft, it was looked as an all-out gift for the Vikings and my howls could probably be heard for miles. But during his rookie year he played sparingly behind Kevin Williams and Letroy Guion, and even when he did see the field he was inconsistent...
