Week #5, Vikings at Packers

I waited until the dust settled from the Vikings v Packers game last night to write this post. But it didn’t help get that bitter taste we all get when Christian Ponder is declared the Vikings starter. I was one of many Vikings fans that had hoped Ponder would have been released before the regular […]

Teddy Bridgewater carted off the field in the 4th quarter.

Vikings, Bridgewater and the O-Line

I don’t expect the Vikings to be very forthcoming with information on Teddy Bridgwater’s injury. They want to keep the Packers guessing this short week. So far the reports say that it’s just a spain, but as we all know, if it’s the dreaded high ankle sprain, he could be out weeks or days. I […]

Week #4 ATL at Mn

It appears that there is a new gunslinger in the Twin Cities, and his name is Teddy Bridgewater. Teddy made the first start of his pro career for the Vikings and he didn’t disappoint the fans. After the Viking defense stopped the Falcons on their first possession, the crowd knew it was “Teddy Time“. Teddy […]

Teddy Bridgewater sees the first action of his young career.

MN at NO Week # 3

Three weeks into the 2014-15 season and it’s clear as the nose on my face that the Vikings miss Adrian Peterson. The viking run defense seemed to have many holes and their run offense didn’t do much either. The one bright spot was the play of Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater entered the game after Matt Cassel […]

Us Viking fans get a cold dose of reality

Sitting here sipping my morning coffee, I still cannot believe the outcome of the Vikings-Patriots game on Sunday. I sent a text message to one of my good friends saying “The Vikings will win big and AP will have a huge day”. I was so wrong on all fronts. I like many fans, expected to […]

Adrian Peterson’s Future

With the events that transpired over the past weekend, I am amazed at how the media and some fans have turned their back on the star running back. I grew up in the 60′s and 70′s and knew if several kids who “got taken to the woodshed”. Some with belts, some with paddles. They never […]

Julian Edelman was basically unstoppable on Sunday

NE at MN Week #2

Julian Edelman single handedly beat the Vikings in their outdoor premier at TCF Bank Stadium. The crowd was loud at kickoff, but that only lasted for about the first 10 minutes of the first quarter. The Vikings opened the game with nice drive that culminated with a 25 yard Matt Cassel to Matt Asiata touchdown […]

Vikings handle Rams on the road, start season 1-0

    Cordarrelle Patterson was a one man highlight reel for the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. His 67 yard touchdown run in the 3rd quarter was icing on the cake as the Vikings started the regular season 1-0 with a win in St Louis, 34-6. The Vikings offense had a slow start, only scoring 13 […]

Cassel Named Week #1 Starter

According to the Dan Patrick Show, Mike Zimmer has announced that Matt Cassel will be the starter for the season opener at St Louis. Cassel was the frontrunner, with many thinking Teddy Bridgewater could win the spot. Cassel is 26 of 39 for 367 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception this preseason. His passer rating […]
