In general though, I’ve done well enough that the big mistakes have been few and far between this season...

Brian Hall's Nov. 26 Vikings mailbag

The Minnesota Vikings were disappointed with last week's 24-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The fans seem to appreciate slowing Green Bay's offense and coming close in the rivalry game. There was far less vitriol than following the previous week's loss at Chicago. When it comes to asking for players or coaches to lose their jobs, there was only one target this week -- left tackle...

Five one-on-one matchups to watch in Week 2

The NFL is a game of matchups. If your cornerback can’t cover my wide receiver, it’s going to be a long day for you.
