For Everson Griffen The Future Is Now

He had forgone his Senior year at Southern Cal to enter the draft after being a three-year starter for Pete Carroll's Trojans.The physical tools had always been there as the 260+ pound running back/defensive lineman/track...

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. 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! Secondly, and more egregious, how the *...

Minnesota Vikings: PFS 2014 Season Awards, Part I

MVP Chris - HC, Mike ZimmerHow in the heck can a coach be considered MVP? I mean...it's most valuable player, right? Well, look at what the Vikings had to go through.

Dolphins playing for pride in matchup against Vikings

With a minuscule chance of making the playoffs, the Miami Dolphins (7-7) host the Minnesota Vikings (6-8) in a much different context than previous games this season. Playing for pride more than anything else, the Dolphins have little else to compete for at this point -- though a winning record and a strong finish to the season might be enough to save some jobs. Maybe. Why this team...

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...

Vikings deliver two crucial blocked punts for TDs against Panthers

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.
