Can Everson Griffen be Great for the Vikings?

2010 is a season that Minnesota Vikings fans would like to forget. Everything seemed to go wrong that season for the Vikings as the team failed to live up to the expectations it had built in 2009 when they came up one game short of reaching the Super Bowl.However, 2010 was also the year in which the Vikings used a draft pick to select a raw and super athletic defensive lineman in...

Yesterday the NFL’s 2015 regular season schedule finally came out. First up for the Minnesota Vikings is the San Francisco 49ers on September 14, when they’ll get to play against a familiar face.

Panthers Have Quietly Built a Formidable Special Teams Unit

Had the Carolina Panthers not pulled off four straight wins to end the 2014 regular season, their proverbial nail in the coffin would have been Adam Thielen. Yeah, Adam Thielen.In their Week 13 matchup against Minnesota, the Panthers helplessly watched a blocked punt off the foot of Brad Nortman land into the hands the Vikings’ special teams ace and into the end zone. At that point...

2014’s Top Minnesota Vikings Celebrations

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.

WATCH: Everson Griffen Gallops Off Into the Night

Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen wasted no time celebrating a dramatic overtime win at home against the New York Jets. A clever way to get out of a postgame interview. If Everson plans makes a habit of it, perhaps he should invest in some props? Andre Johnson could hook him up at Toys-R-Us. And don’t worry, this doesn’t make him a Cowboy. He’s from California, and those...

MINNEAPOLIS -- Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen was on the sideline Sunday when reserve wide receiver Adam Thielen broke through the Carolina Panthers' offensive line with a clear path to the punter.
