Preseason Week #3 Review Mn vs KC

The night was slightly hotter than the Vikings were used to in Mankato. That didn’t seem to affect the Vikings play though. The first team offense looked solid, with the highlight being a 53  yard pitch and catch, Matt Cassel to Cordarrelle Patterson for six points. The offensive line looked much better in their pass […]

Pre-Season Week #2 Review MN vs ARI

Two weeks of preseason football under the Zimmer regime and the most noticeable differences from the past coaching staff is even though it’s only preseason, coach Zimmer is very fired up and animated on the sidelines.

The field was fitted with new turf and heating tubes under it for those Dec. and hopefully Jan home games. Vikings kick off. Raiders go 3 and out (with a penalty). […]

Zimmer drafts to his strengths.

The dust has settled from the 2014 NFL Draft, and it appears that coach Zimmer thinks like I do. Or vise versa. He noticed that the Vikings could have easily been a playoff team in 2013 IF the defense could have stopped ANYONE!! The Vikings yielded a league high average of 30 points (ranked 31st overall) […]
