Uncertainty remains at signal-caller for Vikings, just not at starting spot

When the Minnesota Vikings ended the 2012 season, Christian Ponder was entrenched as the team's starting quarterback even though he was forced to miss the team's playoff game because of injury. Yet, the inconsistency that defined Ponder's career with Minnesota was still a bit evident and there was no firm feeling the Vikings had found themselves a long-term quarterback who could...

Oral History Of Christian Ponder Part III: Odd Man Out

After helping lead the Minnesota Vikings to the playoffs in 2012, quarterback Christian Ponder's career seemed to be heading in the right direction.

When Does the Vikings Playoff Drought End?

If you think about it, the Vikings aren’t THAT bad of a team. I mean, sure, they’ve never won a Super Bowl, but not many teams get to do that. Really, only one team wins the Super Bowl each year, and there have only been 49 total Super Bowls, which means … Well … I guess that means with only 32 teams in the NFL the Vikings have been due to win at least one Super Bowl. But...

Should the Green Bay Packers consider a QB during free agency?

There’s one axiom that almost every football coach, analyst and fan believes about the game today: The NFL is a quarterback-driven league. If a team has a good one, they are a contender. If they don’t, they have no chance of competing for a title. Thus, landing an elite signal caller is priority No. 1 for every team. While the best place to find one is in the draft, not every...

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...

The Minnesota Vikings put together a top list of player celebrations from 2014 recently, and assembled them all in a video. Firstly, that’s kind of cool. This is the quirky and fun stuff that other sports teams and leagues do all the time, and the NFL punches in the mouth with an iron fist usually. So, nice! Way to not suck AS much, NFL!

Teddy Bridgewater Deserve to Be in Offesive Rookie of the Year Conversations?

When the Minnesota Vikings drafted Teddy  Bridgewater the hope was that the Louisville quarterback would end up becoming the QB of the future for the team. Christian Ponder was not going to live up to his hype and neither was Matt Cassell so the Vikings needed someone. They did not want to insert him in to the lineup as early as they did, but circumstances did not give them a choice...

2014 Vikings Review: Hot Quarterback Action

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.  QUARTERBACKS Which Ones? Teddy...

The Most Inconsistent Quarterbacks In The NFL

The quarterback position is considered the most important in the NFL. Many teams look at the top of the draft for quarterbacks with playmaking ability, but consistency is just as big a factor if not bigger.
