Draft Day decisions will be key for MN Vikings
The marquee bastion of blame for the failure of last year’s Minnesota Vikings usually had a big flashing arrow directed towards their quarterback, named Christian Ponder. There definitely was plenty blame which should have been hoisted by Ponder, but the reason for the 5-10-1...

Who will be next young QB for Vikes?
The last few months of sports competition has not been kind to the Minnesota faithful. For the ninth-consecutive season, the Minnesota Timberwolves finished under .500 and have ground yet another coach through the meat grinder, with the dismissal of Rick Adelman. The Twins extended...

Vikings to dip into free agency
The change over for the Minnesota Vikings has already been pretty drastic after a disappointing 5-10-1 record, and more is sure to come. The ousters have come and gone, with the replacements already warming the coaches’ offices at Winter Park. With the big change over in coaches,...

A good night to be a Vikings fan
Last season, the Minne-sota Vikings surprised many by going 10-6 and earning an unlikely trip to the NFL playoffs, during what was suppose to have been a rebuilding year. In all reality, it was just that — a rebuilding year, with the team having to rely much on the 2012 draft class....

Deep draft lacks star power for Vikes
There are basically three ways to upgrade an NFL team: free agency, trade or by the draft. The first is expensive, and can put a team in salary cap hell for many years if that free agent player does not produce like he did prior to the big contract. That happens a lot. Wise and secure...

Lots of work to be done after Harvin trade

A sign of a good NFL coach is not to succumb to the knee-jerk reactions the typical fan possesses during a season where they live and die for each Sunday afternoon of football. Patience is a virtue for an NFL coach. But in the case of Minnesota Viking head coach Leslie Frazier,...

Vikings finally start to rebuild
In historical terms, it was a disastrous 2011 season for the Minnesota Vikings. Two years ago, the Vikings' ownership sold out their future to go for a final push for the Super Bowl by coaxing Brett Favre out of retirement for a second time in as many years. They stockpiled...
