Minnesota Viking Lose To……The Minnesota Vikings

I wish I could say I was this all knowing Pigskin Prognosticator, but I’m not. I’m just your average Minnesota Vikings fan. I’ve suffered through the ups and down of the vikings for over 45 year now. This past offseason gave Vikings fans a glimmer of hope. The Wilfs just hired as head coach, a […]

Vikings eliminated from playoffs, fans look to next year.

With the Seattle Seahawks winning Sunday, it dashed any slim hope for a Viking playoff push. Not really surprising that the Vikings will not be going to the postseason, at least for this fan. While I, like many fans, was hoping to see the Purple Gang in the playoff for coach Zimmers first season as […]

Peterson’s future rests in Goodell’s and Wilf’s hands.

With Adrian Peterson’s plea of no contest to misdemeanor reckless assault as part of plea deal with prosecutors to resolve his felony child abuse case, the future of AP and the Vikings is in the hands of the NFL commissioner and the owner of the Vikings. Many have said that since the plea was a misdemeanor, […]

Week #7 Vikings at Bills

Sorry my post is so late, I was having internet issues Sunday and was in the hospital Monday so I will just do a review of the season so far. The 2014 Minnesota Vikings season has been like a roller coaster so far. This is not much of a surprise to this blogger. Fans had […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dust settles after Kluwe report

It’s been a while since my last post. The months of June and July are the worst for football fans. The draft is over, rookies have been signed and we just wait for training camp to start. I could have posted about some stale subjects, but decided to wait until it was closer to the […]

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) […]

Vikings trade up for first round pick at #32

The Vikings traded up with the Seahawks to #32 to grab Teddy Bridgewater. Slightly under sized at 6′-2″, he could be the answer to the Vikings QB questions. I see a lot of the same statements that followed Christian Ponder, i.e. smart and high football IQ. I (personally) was hoping for slightly larger type of […]
