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...

Do the Cowboys need a veteran at LB?

DALLAS, TX The devastating end to Sean Lee’s season has many in the Cowboys organization looking at potential options in case of emergency. Dallas has had numerous injuries in the past few seasons but it is hard to not think that linebacker has been one of the biggest question marks the Cowboys have had. Knowing Sean Lee’s character, we can assume he’ll be back next year ready...

Report: Vikings agree to terms to bring back Jasper Brinkley

The Minnesota Vikings weren't interested in a lazy Sunday. Minnesota was busy during the NFL's three-day negotiating window before Tuesday's official opening of free agency and locked in a starting defensive end and possible starting middle linebacker. Less than an hour after agreeing to re-sign defensive end Everson Griffen, FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reported Minnesota...

Erin Henderson wants his middle linebacker spot back; Bored at the Will

The Vikings moved Henderson back to weakside linebacker after Audie Cole performed well at middle linebacker, and because the Vikings play so much nickel defense, Henderson has barely been on the field. He played eight snaps against the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 8, and got just 12 last Sunday against the Eagles, including a couple at middle linebacker after […]

Minnesota Vikings: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#25)

All of the sharps predicted an improvement from the Lions and a decline from the Vikings, to the point where the Lions were 5 point favorites week 1 and had a higher over/under win total. The Lions’ 10 point victory over the Vikings is making those sharps look pretty smart. The Vikings simply cannot rely on Adrian Peterson to rush for 2000 yards again. He looked great on his first...

Minnesota Vikings do the linebacker waltz

One bug that keeps biting the Minnesota Vikings’ coaching staff is that vacancy at middle linebacker.  The team simply does not have an ideal solution for the position, one of the most critical in Minnesota’s defensive scheme.  But it does have a plan. The Vikings’ staff seems to be leaning toward sliding Erin Henderson over to the middle, something they have already discussed...

The Vikings will potentially have 17 players saying goodbye this offseason. The number one player the Vikings might lose in 2013 is linebacker Erin Henderson. He should not be confused with E.J.

Cardinals vs. Vikings: PJD's Masturbatory Game Seven Preview

Red Zone Against the Red Team: I saw a stat today that said - outside of that first game of the season against the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars - Purple Jesus has gone five straight games without a rushing touchdown. Or any touchdown, for that matter. This, in fact, is a new career high, and not one that is a positive record holder. This is also reflective of just how craptastic...

These Defensive Assignments ... Are Too Damn High!

It's without question that Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts - and the previous week during the Jacksonville Jaguars - that the main culprit for the Vikings' poor performances has been their defense. And a slow start to the offense. And a horrible coaching staff. And an inept franchise. And a brutal play-by-play radio announcer. And a ton of roster players who smoke copious...

For better or worse, Vikings are different in 2012

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. In four years with the Minnesota Vikings, defensive end Jared Allen has seen a lot of turnover in the locker room. Friends and teammates have moved on and in many cases have been moved on from. When Minnesota returned to Winter Park this week after leaving training camp in Mankato, Minn., the reminders were everywhere of the changes undergone this offseason...

Purple Jesus Comes Forth From His Tomb, NOBODY TOUCH HIM!!

You guys ... I ... I think this is finally the day that we've been waiting for. It's the day that has been told about for eons, it's the second coming of Purple Jesus again!

Minnesota Vikings Potential Breakout Player of 2012: Erin Henderson

This is the part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the Minnesota Vikings, that player is outside linebacker...

Vikes counting on Brinkley to take over in middle

(Eds: Updates with quotes, details.) By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer The Minnesota Vikings need a new man in the middle of their defense. Jasper Brinkley has inherited the job, as long as he can stay healthy. Doing his homework, though, might be the most important part. Brinkley missed all of 2012 after surgery on the hip he injured during the preseason, but the Vikings believed...
