“SEC football is just a whole different lifestyle. It’s a tradition.”
The Minnesota Vikings are in the process of rebuilding for the future. The process began with the 2012 NFL Draft. The Vikings selected nine players in the draft – lost one to a devastating knee injury – and claimed another off waivers.
The Minnesota Vikings were not expected to win very many games this season, but they have still played surprisingly well in some aspects while underachieving in others. Rookie kicker Blair Walsh, the two-minute offense and running back Adrian Peterson are pleasant surprises while the pass rush, two-minute defense and downfield passing attack are disappointments.
The Minnesota Vikings reported no significant injuries and that the players forced out of last week’s game returned to practice this week. Injuries will play a factor in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh earned NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors for his performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The national media does not like the Minnesota Vikings in 2012, but history says they still have a chance. The Vikings need a lot of things to go right to prove the naysayers wrong from better quarterback play to improved pass defense.
