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 […]

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. Dare I say, more involved in the game. I am starting to see some real good chemistry between Matt […]

Cassel has edge after first pre-season game.

I, like just about every other Viking fan was excited to see many of this years rookie class, with Teddy Bridgewater the one I wanted to see the most. I recorded the game so I could review it this week. I have watched it twice since Friday night. I get the same opinion stuck in […]
