Cassel get’s 2 year deal. Good or Bad?

The Vikings just signed Matt Cassel to a 2 year deal worth $10 Million. The question is, why? I just double checked vikings.com and they still haven’t announced the signing but it is on NFL.com.

Frazier costs Patterson R.O.Y.

Looking back at the 2013 NFL Football season, it’s clear to me that Leslie Frazier cost Cordarrelle Patterson NFC Rookie of the year. You see this all the time, where coaches say a player has natural talent but is “raw” and keeps them out of the line up until they get “seasoned”. I just couldn’t rap my head […]

Vikings needs by position.

Having watched every game in the 2013 season, I have my idea on where the Vikings need to upgrade. Quarterbacks: I think everyone knows this is the most obvious position that needs to improve. Christian Ponder will either be released or stay on as our #3 QB. Matt Cassell (Free agent) has the ability to be a […]

What’s next for the Vikings?

  With the departure of Leslie Frazier, Rick Spielman has to try and throw a Hail Mary. The fallout from recent events (Henderson’s DUI and Klewe’s article) have given us a little insight into the culture in the Vikings locker room. No one has a bad thing to say about Frazier, that’s because he is truly […]

The Minnesota Vikings fell to 6-5 and the Chicago Bears improved to 8-3, but more importantly, the Vikings are now two games out of first place and will likely have to set their sights on the NFC Wildcard race for the playoffs.
