The Vikings’ next big challenge isn’t New Orleans as much as learning to play without All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson.
The Vikings team has had to endure a week of uncertainty and maintain that life will be normal if they just focus on New Orleans. The attempts at normalcy came at practice Wednesday in Winter Park.
The fallout is coming from all angles in the Adrian Peterson case. From the actual criminal charges to the Vikings decision to have him return this week, the politicians voicing their displeasure over that move to sponsors dropping out, and some charity team activities canceled Tuesday, the fallout is big.
It is “the” test of the non-conference season for the Gophers football team. They’re headed to Fort Worth to face Texas Christian University. They’re two touchdown underdogs who are physically beaten up.
After a slew of camps, mini camp, training camp, winter park camp, the Minnesota Vikings are finally about to play a regular season football game when they take on the St. Louis Rams Sunday.
The Minnesota Vikings kick off their season in St. Louis on Sunday. The curiosity factor watching Norv Turner’s offense is off the charts. All of us can figure out one of his main plays: hand the ball off to Adrian Peterson.
The greatest friend to a new head football coach is a good quarterback. Does Mike Zimmer have one in Matt Cassel?
Nothing like evaluating quarterback play…and the Gopher football team is no exception. Mitch Leidner is the man, but is he ready?
They gather in Edina now, ready to start focusing on what is around the corner – training camp for hockey. It seems early, but this group is dedicated and determined. It is a who’s who of Minnesota talent.
The Gopher football season kicks off tomorrow. Eastern Illinois is the opponent, but the bigger question is: Are they built to improve on a bowl Season? The catalyst for this season started last season, when Syracuse upset the Gophers in their bowl game.
Last year, the Minnesota Lynx took the ultimate ride of champions down Nicollet Mall. To the victors go the spoils, but are the Lynx a better team this year?
At first, the people chanted for quarterback Christian Ponder. They wanted him to replace Donovan McNabb as a rookie, but did he play too soon for his own good?
Most of the questions in the pre-season are about rookies, newcomers from other teams and a new coaching staff. The Vikings have another evaluation – this time with a veteran.
One of the keys to the Gopher football team’s defense is the man who runs it. It’s largely because he has head coaching experience … for the Gophers!
A perfect example of doing what it takes to make the team is wide receiver and special teams player, Adam Thielen. Thielen is right at home in Vikings training camp, as he went to college at Minnesota-State Mankato.
